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.
