Sir
Yes I am the same person. This article was prepared by my school colleagues and students and was released as a documentary on by birthday, 3rd April. This is the story line they have developed as a video cd. The story has come in the Srutivani and Brahmavani (Palakkad based Brahmin bulletins). I have uploaded it in this site. That is it. I just wanted to share my experience and story with my own community people. Because it is indeed a story of struggle and hard work.
But, when I was struggling I never thought I will reach to this level one day. Now I m content and satisfied. my one and only aim is to serve the needy. that I am doing to the best of my capacity.
Thank you so much for your queries sir.
respects
Anandi

Dear Renuka, thank you so much for the mail. As I told you there is a documentary made by my well wishers and was released on my birthday. I would like to share that documentary with you all to know more about my success story. Really telling you, I was not aware of the depth of the hardship I had gone though till I narrate my story to the script writer. I was just living my life and taking it day by day and was facing it as it came to me. I will surely upload the film for all. I am really grateful to God for His Mercy up on me. Thanks and regards. God bless. Anandi.

Dr. Anandi Madam,

To blow one's own trumpet (is this the right phrase, I don't know) or, better still, to go on writing about oneself as if that oneself has made some world-shaking achievement, is not a sign of a matured mind. Only when others praise you, Madam, will there be real credit or fame.

not true sarma.

there are several ways to show role modelling.

in a forum like this, there are lots of youngsters who only read the forum. and with whom we do not have direct interaction.

many of them perhaps, might be at cross roads of their lives, and wondering which road to take. to folks like those, stories like anandi, is an inspiration. a guidance. and above all, may as well give them self confidence.

'if she can do it, so can i' ... this statement can be read in many ways. but i think, the best way to read it, is one in an inspirational mode. that anandi, with her background, has achieved her goal. through sheer hard work and smart thinking. is there not a lesson for all of us?

thank you.

Actually, till few days before I was not aware of this site itself. but some of my friends told me regrading this Tamilbrahmins. com and insisted me to upload this story of mine,they said so that lots of brahmins around the world will understand the struggle I had gone through to reach this stage. for your kind information sir, I have not prepared this story.. this was prepared by my colleagues and students. If you think I have done anything wrong please excuse me. I will not repeat again. I never thought of this fame or credit. I just wanted to share my story to the brahmins around. I felt proud of doing so. Thank you sir, forgive me for the same. with respects. Anandi

anandi,

you have done nothing wrong to apologize. be proud of your achievements, and if you think, it will serve a purpose or inspiration to others, never fail to give details.

God Bless.

ps. one small hint. instead of a generic 'sir', perhaps you could address your posts, directly to the person. that would avoid some confusion. thank you.

Dear Dr Anandi,

I understand your motive for posting the articles and You Tube Links here..to motivate many others here..but dear Dr Anandi I think you will make everyone really proud of you if you could feel that you want to share this success with everyone regardless of origin and I am asking permission if I can copy and paste this article in another Google Group and Forum I am in which is frequented by all types of Indians.

i think, sarma is wrong to have admonished and criticized you. what he says is not valid. he has not read your notes properly and in the proper context.

i think, it is only proper for him, to take back his words, and give you your due apology.

God Bless.

ps. one small hint. instead of a generic 'sir', perhaps you could address your posts, directly to the person. that would avoid some confusion. thank you.

Dear Kunjuppu,

I feel may be Sarma should be allowed to have his own opinion even though I too dont agree with it becos by asking him to apologize here we start off with unpleasantness and relationships will be soured.

I feel the decision should be his and if we disagree with what he wrote we can write what we feel about Dr Anandi like what you and I feel.

There has been lots of unpleasant exchange of words in forum last 1-2 weeks and many left..so lets hope we can be 1 happy family here.

Dear Kunjuppu Sir and Renuka,
I have no words to explain for the support showered by you. I am humbled. Again, I never thought of fame or credit... That was not at all in my mind. Actually this story has come in the Brahmavani and Sruthivani brahmin bulletins of palakkad, this I have mentioned earlier too. Some of my friends had insisted me to share this story with the younger generations. Which I did that's all. Renuka.. If you feel this can help or motivate many then u can paste this in your sites with your comments. again no one think that I have done this for fame. with your remarks you can upload if you feel this can help others. when I uploaded this story of mine really telling you I felt so proud because I am sharing this with my own community. A brahmin girl has done this and sharing with her own people. Actually Renuka, this is only half told story.. The real struggle faced by me and my mother is very painful. but I have received the support from none other than "The God".. then what is the need of any human support right? Thank you for the support. Anandi
