Proving age is just a number to acheve the dreams, a 96-year-old woman from India’s Kerala has become a social media sensation after she passed the grade 4 equivalency exam under the Kerala Literacy Mission, Akshara Laksham scheme.
Karthyayini Amma, a resident of Alappuzha district, Kerala, proved every person wrong who thinks that age is a barrier in pursuing dreams.
Her images while taking written exams have gone viral across social media platforms.
The Mahindra Group’s Chairman Anand Mahindra tweeted in her praise, “Now if this is true she is my role model.” Being inspired, the businessman further said, “My brains will stay alive if I stay as hungry to learn as she is,” according to a report by the Indian Express.
This was his response after a Twitter user tagged him in a post, informing him about the ‘wonder woman’, who scored full marks in an exam conducted by the state in a step to eradicate illiteracy.
Mahindra got to know about this lady’s achievement when a Twitter user tagged him in his post, “At 96, Kerala grandma faces her first exam, gets full score in reading test …..@anandmahindra”.
He wrote, “Now if this is true she is my role model. My brains will stay alive if I stay as hungry to learn as she is.”
Now if this is true she is my role model. My brains will stay alive if I stay as hungry to learn as she is..👏👏👏 https://t.co/Tct1G2sqpr
