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.
