Two disabled students honoured

Staff Reporter



THEY’VE OVERCOME: Two physically-challenged students who were honoured at Gandarvakottai in Pudukottai district on Sunday.

PUDUKOTTAI: Disability did not deter them from pursuing higher education. And their efforts were honoured at a function held in Gandarvakottai village, about 40 km from here on Sunday.

Two physically-challenged students, C. Aruna and A. Mohamed Faizal, of the village were the cynosure of all eyes when they received a purse of Rs. 1,001 and a memento in recognition of their hard efforts in continuing their higher education in Thanjavur district.

While Aruna is studying final year of M.C.A. at the Uma Maheswararanar Arts and Science College at Karandai, Faizal is an undergraduate student of English Literature at the Rajah Serfoji Government Arts College. In his speech, Mohamad Faizal said that confidence was the key to his achievement.

“Gandarvakottai is one of the educationally backward taluks in the district. As part of our literacy mission, we have been conducting several educational developmental programmes. Honouring the physically-challenged students forms part of our exercise,” says R. Pazha Marimuthu, president of the Bharathi Narpani Mandram, Gandarvakottai, which organised the function. Free uniforms were distributed to 62 students of panchayat union schools at Mookappa Udayanpallam and Vembanpatti .
