Sangeetha-07-01-2021-GS

Sangeetha says that she excelled
in her studies simply because of
the way teaching is imparted at
Isha Vidhya. She was a school
topper at Isha Vidhya Tuticorin
with a score of 97% in Class 10
and 72% in Class 12.

She also walked away with top
prizes in oration and writing
competitions.This motivated
alumna is currently doing her
B.Sc in Computer Science at
the Holy Cross Home Science
College, Tuticorin. Inspired by
her sister, she wants to pursue
coding.

Sangeetha joined Isha Vidhya
on a scholarship in Class 2 and
says her teachers at school were
like her second parents. She
attributes her accomplishments
at Isha Vidhya to the method of
teaching, encouragement to
participate in extracurricular
activities, the freedom to express
oneself, and the food.

Although she misses Isha Vidhya,
Sangeetha says she finds the
progression to college exciting.

Indumathi-04-01-2020-GS

Indumathi's first brush with a lab
was at her alma mater, Isha Vidhya
Erode school. She feels that Isha
Vidhya's labs have fantastic facilities –
which stimulated her interest and
helped her learn well.

The constant financial struggles of
her father, a school dropout and a
lorry driver, have motivated her to
succeed in her studies. She was a
school topper with a score of 97% in
Grade 10 and 75% in Grade 12. In
pursuit of her favorite subjects –
Biology, Mathematics, Physics, and
Chemistry – she's now studying her
B.Sc with Biochemistry and
Biotechnology at the Avinasilingam
Institute for Home Science and
Higher Education for Women,
Coimbatore. She recently won a
prize for making a video to generate
awareness about the Coronavirus.

She says the transition from school
to college was challenging as the
college environment is a tougher
one than she anticipated, but she's
determined to work towards her
success!

Sowbarniga-31-12-2020-GS

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,

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.

anusara-22-10-2020-GS

Anusara, who is currently studying in
Grade 8 at Isha Vidhya’s Nagercoil school,
won a certificate of participation when
she was in Grade 6 in the Indian Talent
Exam at the National Level Competition
in General Knowledge.

This spunky youngster discovered
(from research) that many successful
IAS officers had studied GK from their
childhood in preparation for the IAS
entrance exams so she's chosen the
same route. She started preparing to
fulfill her dream to become an IAS
officer when she was in Grade 6.

Her father works in a teashop.
Anusara relies on the school library
to expand her general knowledge.
She goes through the newspaper
every day thoroughly besides
devouring the library books.

Her teachers, too, have given her
all the support to sharpen her
general knowledge and encourage
her to participate in numerous
competitions. But it's her mother
who has inspired her to become
an IAS officer, supporting the poor
and down-trodden.

Indian Administrative Service (IAS)
through General Knowledge! How
does that sound?!
