The Oldest Student In Kerala Becomes India's Commonwealth Learning Goodwill Ambassador, At 96

In the most endearing news segment today, 96-year-old Karthyayani Amma from Kerala has shown the nation the kind of will that literacy can conjure, by being selected as the Commonwealth of Learning Goodwill Ambassador, for India.

Amma became a household name in Kerala, when in November 2018 she achieved her first educational degree at the age of 96! This just goes to show that age no bar, really and that anything is possible, at any time, without the age factor being a big detriment! After her hard work and struggle to get herself an educational qualification, the grandmother from Neyyattinkara, Alappuzha district has been chosen to represent India as the Commonwealth of Learning Ambassador.

But this isn't all from Amma's book of life. Amma started off as a domestic worker before she turned her life completely around. She was the oldest woman to have appeared in the Kerala Literacy Mission's Akshara Laksham (million letters) literacy examination and she scored a total of 98 marks out of a 100. Her hard work and struggle to reach this pinnacle is an inspirational story in itself.

The one and only Commonwealth Learning Goodwill Ambassadorð. More Power to you dear Karthyayani Amma

This is the kind of India we want to promote.  Do we care for her caste, religion, region or any discriminating features? We love her and respect her unconditionally, for the person she is, the Indian she is. #Proudindian

Amma has definitely made us globally proud and we can't believe someone her age is sill unbelievably active and incredibly cognizant. While Amma prepares for her grade 4 examinations under the Akshara Laksham, we wish her all the luck the universe can conjure and wishes she passes her exams with flying colours. 

While the Canada-based organisation does what it can to further the education in Commonwealth countries, we wish more people such as Amma come forward and willingly give literacy a fair chance.
