Sowbarniga was a school leader at
Isha Vidhya Erode school. This
dynamic alumna stood first in
Grade 10 with an exceptional score
of 493/500, and continued to be a
school topper in Grade 12 with a
score of 550/600.

She says she's always studied hard
to better her family's condition, and
she's even challenged herself in
extracurricular activities. Sowbarniga
also won prizes in intra-school
oratorical, essay writing, drawing, and
craft competitions as well as at
zonal-level volleyball and throw ball
games.

After graduating from Anna University,
Chennai, with a Bachelor's degree in
Textile Technology, Sowbarniga plans
to do a management course and then
set up her own textile mills.

She's inspired to follow in the footsteps
of young entrepreneurs like Ritesh
Agarwal (CEO – Oyo Rooms and the
world's second-youngest billionaire in
2020).

This alumna is so focused on achieving
her goals that she's now taken on
extracurricular activities including
becoming a member of the
Entrepreneurship Club, the Rotaract Club,
the YRC, the Student Quality Council,
and CEG Study Circle.

We are so inspired to have alumni
like Sowbarniga!

Thanks & Best Regards,

Year-End Cheer: Sharing Of Dharmapuri Principal

Dharmapuri-Principal-Dec-29-2020-GS
Dharmapuri-Principal-Dec-29-2020-GS

Namaskaram,

My journey with Isha Vidhya began
in 2014 as a school coordinator in the
Government School Support Program
(GSSP) which is part of Isha's outreach
project in education. Two years later,
I was promoted as a supervising coordinator,
and three years thereafter, I was promoted
as the Principal of Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri.

Before I worked on the GSSP project, I had
never nteracted with government and senior
officials, but was able to work effortlessly
after undergoing the training by the academic
team. They trained me to handle issues with
government officials, train teachers, and prepare
content – and in my experience, I have never
een any school give so much importance to
the training of teachers.

Our efforts in government schools have been
very effective with students doing very well
in exams and so, we were further allocated
around 120 government schools in 6 districts.

When I became the Principal, the team once
again helped me make the transition since the
methodology used in Isha Vidhya schools is
different from that used in government schools.
At Isha Vidhya, I'm able to interact with students
more closely and appreciate and encourage
their talents.

Before joining Isha, I only had teaching
experience, but during my journey here I
got the opportunity to learn so much. I'm
computer savvy now, I can prepare content,
train teachers, engage effectively with
government officials as well as parents,
manage administrative work, and lead
by example.

I feel really proud to be working at Isha
Vidhya and I see myself always working
here. I am thankful to everybody who has
helped me grow professionally.

All this was possible because of the grace
of Isha Education’s founder Sadhguru.

Pranam,
Manickam
Principal, Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri

Note: ‘Namaskaram’ and ‘Pranam’ are Tamil and
Hindi variants respectively of Sanskrit
greetings for salutations to the other person.
