amoga-07-08-2021-GS

Amoga is a single-parent child –
her father died in a road accident.
With no support forthcoming from
relatives, her mother took up a job
as an Anganwadi staff in her village.
As her mother's meagre income
couldn't support Amoga and her
sister's private-school education,
they had to drop out.

The siblings scored well in the
evaluation test at Isha Vidhya
Cuddalore and were granted
scholarships. Amoga joined in
Grade 6 and has always been a
class topper. She feels that she is
driven to do well so that she can
help her mother and that's why
she's always been a school topper.
Amoga has just completed
Grade 12 with flying colors and
is intent on excelling in studies
to become an IAS officer and
serve people.

Amoga excels in oration and has
won many prizes in oration, art,
and athletics. She says that every
time she wins a prize, it is a
boost to her self-confidence and
validates her belief that anything
can be achieved with diligence.

Harini-07-08-2021-GS

Harini, who studies on a scholarship
in Grade 7 at Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri,
has trudged a difficult journey this far.
Her father was an alcoholic who
habitually abused his wife and was
diagnosed with brain cancer. He
couldn't be saved despite the family
spending INR 3 lakhS for his treatment.

Her mother now runs a shop and also
does tailoring from home to feed her 5
children but is still unable to meet their
basic needs.

While her siblings study at a government
school, Harini is doing well at Isha Vidhya –
she's diligent and meticulous with her
classwork and homework, and an active
participant in class discussions. She has
won prizes in athletics at the school level.

Harini loves the computer and math
classes and says that she is always
trying to do her best at academics to
make her mother happy and support
her. She wants to become a doctor –
like the doctor next door, and work
to serve poor people in villages.

Deepasri-07-08-2021-GS

Deepasri and her younger brother study
on scholarships at Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri.
Her parents are not educated – her father
is a two-wheeler mechanic and her mother
is a tailor, but both their incomes put
together are insufficient to fund the
education of the siblings.

This class topper is now in Grade 10 and
says that her teachers inspire her and have
helped build her self-confidence. Deepasri's
teachers are pleased with her performance,
especially her English teacher who finds her
a curious and promising learner, attentive in
class, with no qualms about asking
questions to clarify concepts and deepen her
understanding.

Deepasri is grateful for the opportunity she
got to develop new skills every day through
different activities, maintain good health with
Yoga, and also to exhibit her talent in sports.
She has won prizes in athletics at the school
and district levels and wants to pursue sports
at college too.

She aspires to study B.Sc. in Nursing –
inspired by the nurses whom she has seen at
work in hospitals.

thangamari-07-08-2021-GS

Thangamari, an alumna of Isha Vidhya
Tuticorin, has strived to do well academically
and was inspired by her school teachers to
venture into the textile business. She is
currently studying BBA (Bachelor of
Business Administration) at Raja Lakshmi
College of Arts and Science.

All her efforts and aspirations are driven by
her family situation. Her father is a daily
wage earner who is unable to undertake
strenuous work due to an old injury so her
mother works hard to make ends meet.
From childhood Thangamari was deeply
disturbed to witness her mother going
from door to door in the village, collecting
garbage to earn a living, but even that was
never enough.

Thangamari's parents were reassured in the
knowledge that Isha Vidhya was the custodian
for her education. Besides the scholarship that
gave her the confidence to strive and do well
academically, Thangamari liked Yoga, the
discipline, the environment, and all the
celebrations at Isha Vidhya.

She's all charged up to graduate and do well
professionally to alleviate her family's
standard of living.

Devi-07-08-2021-GS

Devi joined Isha Vidhya Nagercoil in lower
kindergarten. She lost her father in an accident
when she was in Grade 5. Her mother is a
school dropout and had no financial support
from anyone. But, this didn't shake her mother's
resolve to educate her children despite the dire
straits they were thrown into – they slept hungry
many a time. After a 2-year struggle, her mother
landed a job in a fishnet company and earns a
meagre INR 5000 a month. While her brother
studies in a government school, Devi studies
on a scholarship at Isha Vidhya.

Devi is now in Grade 11 and over the years,
she has done well in sports and has won prizes
in athletics at the school and district level. She
says that her motivating teachers, Yoga and the
school atmosphere make her feel good and
encourage her to strive to do well.

Devi admires the service of the police and is
inspired by Kiran Bedi, the first woman IPS
officer of the country, and wants to become a
police officer like her.
