Following The Footsteps Of Kiran Bedi

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.

Wanting To Be An Animator!

Harisri-July-02-2021
Harisri-July-02-2021

Harisri watches cartoons avidly
and loves the Smurfs cartoon.
When she won a prize in an art
competition, it motivated her
further. No one in her family is
artistically inclined but she is
intent on pursuing an
undergraduate course in
animation after Grade 12.

Harisri is a scholarship student
who joined Isha Vidhya Erode
in LKG. Now in Grade 11,
Harisri was a class leader and
class topper in Grade 10 with
a score of 94%. Her family
members, teachers, friends, and
her family situation inspire her
to do well. She says that her
teachers are like mothers nudging
their children to wakefulness and
that they've constantly helped her
overcome her shortcomings to do
well academically.

LKG is the short form for
Lower Kindergarten.
