“My name is Madhuran. I joined Isha Vidhya in 2nd grade, and completed 12thgrade. I then pursued my college. I joined Chandy Polytechnic College, and completed my Diploma in Mechanical Engineering with 80% marks.
The memories of my school life period are definitely a treasure to cherish for the rest of life. My school continuously played an effective role in honing my life. It is a golden time period of learning. It truly impacted my life. I got self- confidence, motivation, and the will to do the best.
Some campus interviews were conducted by my college, and I was selected by Apollo Tyres company inChennai. Now I work there, and giving my best. I am always thankful to my donors who supported me financially to complete my school studies successfully.”

Namaskaram. My name is Subashini. I am studying BSMS in Government Siddha Medical College, Palayamkottai, Tiruinelveli.
I joined Isha Vidhya in 3rdgrade, and completed 12thgrade. In this journey, each day was very special and unique.
Isha Vidhya is a platform to gain a lot of knowledge and be able to discover myself. My school has made me focus not only in my academics but also to allocate quality time in extra curricular activities.
My dream is to become a doctor and serve the society. To make my dream come true, I took the NEET course and put in 100% effort. Then I got a seat in Govt.Siddha Medical College. I am feeling very blessed to learn about our Siddha medicine. I am confident that I will reach my goal.
I thank my donors, because of whom I was able to reach this position. They have supported me financially to achieve my dreams and inspired me to support more students like me to reach their goals.”
Thank you for your wonderful message Subashini! We continue to strive to educate the rural children of India to reach their potential!

She completed her B.P. Ed. and M.P. Ed. to become a passionate Physical Education teacher.
At Isha Vidhya, her day starts at 07:30 AM with a regular workout and practice for sports-loving students, followed by training students throughout the day. She does the workout again in the evening with interested students before she calls it a day. Her enthusiasm for training well shines through when she accompanies her students unasked for outstation competitions.
Dhanapushpam is constantly on lookout for students who show interest and enthusiasm in sports, and motivates them to strive for excellence, engaging them with the benefits of good health, and perhaps the opportunity to land a secure Government job if they win at the District, State, or National level.
Dhanapushpam says she feels proud when students from other schools acknowledge Isha Vidhya's Sports excellence at sport meets and when her neighborhood children wish they could study at Isha Vidhya for their sports.
She finds her journey with Isha Vidhya gratifying and a great opportunity for self-development.
