2022 has been a year of great recognitions and honours for Yasmin Jal Mistry, whose achievements continue to make the worldwide Parsi/Irani Zoroastrian community, and the nation, truly proud and inspirational. Ending the year on another note of success in the form of yet another prestigious accomplishment, Yasmin Mistry was felicitated with the ‘Dynamic Woman Entrepreneur’ Title on 21st December, 2022 at Vigyan Bhawan – New Delhi, as part of the prestigious ‘Atal Achievement Awards 2022’ – one of India’s most authentic recognitions given to individuals from the Business and Service Sector, for their outstanding performance and overall contribution to the Indian industry.
The ‘Atal Achievement Awards 2022’, organised in honour of Late PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee, honours India’s most brilliant leaders and pioneers from various business segments, on a highly creditable and spectacular platform, as the Business and Services Industry joins in to facilitate India’s top Banking Sector, Telecom Industry, Manufacture Industry, Service and Technology Provider, Education Service Provider, Healthcare and Wellness, Hospitality, Leisure and Tourism, Real State and more. Each year, only 100 leaders are chosen from among lakhs in their respective service categories. The awards are presented to the selected winner by an array of celebrities of national repute.
Conferred the ‘Dynamic Woman Entrepreneur’ Title, Yasmin Mistry – Managing Director of several companies including Y M Securities, Mistry Logistics and Durand Forms (India) Pvt. Ltd. – was praised as an inspiring leadership figure who has consistently contributed across various sectors to the best of her abilities and has taken her organisation from strength to strength as a woman entrepreneur. She is the also founder Trustee of ZTFI (Zoroastrian Trust Funds of India), a Community based NGO established in 2009, which has constantly served the Parsi/Irani Zoroastrian community, for over a decade and brought in much relief by making a huge difference in the lives of its under-privileged.
Speaking to Parsi Times, Yasmin Mistry shared, “I’m delighted and humbled at this recognition. It’s always a good feeling to be acknowledged for the hard work and dedication that I’ve put in through the years. I’ve worked diligently through the past three decades, to pursue and accomplish varied professional and personal goals – be it as a model, a business-woman-turned-industrialist, a community-service front-runner and benefactor, a fitness-enthusiast, but most importantly, as a Parsi, living up to the standards of righteousness, fair-play, integrity and industriousness.”
This latest award comes on the heels of two other extremely prestigious awards that were part of Yasmin’s accomplishments in 2022. In June, the community and the nation rejoiced on the crowning of our very own Yasmin Jal Mistry as she walked away with the prestigious ‘MRS. WORLD INTERNATIONAL’ title, wowing the judges and the audiences alike with her presence of mind, personality and of course, her beauty. Later in September, the gorgeous industrialist, known for her passion and consistent endeavours towards Community Service, yet again brought great pride onto the community by being recognised as one of the very select ‘TOP 10 EMERGING LEADERS OF 2022’ for her ‘diligence and commitment to her work which demonstrates her prowess in her sectors of specialization’, by the globally renowned brand-research and consulting firm – Heylin Spark, which celebrates individuals who have achieved excellence in their fields, as also their efforts and achievements.
“My success is also the result of my upbringing – I heartily thank and credit my mother – Arnavaz Jal Mistry, for being my guiding light and constant support. She imbibed in me the qualities of a true Parsi that I’ve always strived to live up to, along the path of Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds. Our religion is my constant source of peace and motivation; our prayers make me feel truly protected, loved, strengthened and blessed,” adds Yasmin, who was conferred a doctorate in ‘Women Entrepreneurship and Welfare’, in 2018, in recognition of her inexhaustible body of community service and social work, by the National Virtual University for Peace and Education, registered under the Government of India and the United Nations Organisation (UNO), Geneva.
Kudos to Yasmin Mistry on yet another grand achievement! May she keep the Parsi flag fluttering ever high!
