Story of Baranidharan
Baranitharan was admitted to our school with educational scholarship. He hails from a very poor family where his father was a daily wage labourer and two more children to look after. Unfortunately at the beginning of this academic year, his father had a massive heart attack and died at a very young age. The mother could not go for any job as the youngest child was 3 months old. She became sick owing to the sorrowful situation and this poor boy was forced to be at home to look after his siblings. His education was also a question mark.
We came to know about the plight of the family and asked his mother to come to school and we promise her that all the help would be given so that the child studies will not be affected. His sister will also be admitted in our school without paying any fees. Now this boy also given full education scholarship. It means the mother need not pay any money for school, transport, meal etc..
Now both the children are coming to our school and studying well also. Baranitharan is in 2nd grade . Their mother told this with tears in her eyes, I will always be grateful to Isha Vidhya and Sadhguru. When everyone including my relatives neglected me, only Isha Vidhya cared for me and my children and their future is safe at their hands but for Isha Vidhya my children would not got good education and nutritious meal and bright future also. Till my death I won't forget Isha Vidhya.
