Even nine gold medals, 10 cash prizes couldn’t make her happy

2 min read

Mysuru: Unlike other medallists, it was an emotional moment for Tejaswini V from Satthegala in Chamarajanagar district. 

Tejaswini received nine gold medals and 10 cash prizes for emerging topper in graduation. Barring her sister and aunt, none were there to be a part of the joyous moment.

Tears flowed from her eyes as she received the medals. She lost her parents nearly 10 years ago and since then it is a life of endurance. But the only solace is her sister who encouraged her to study well.

Now, she is pursuing her Masters in Kannada at Kuvempu Institute of Kannada Studies (KIKS), University of Mysore.

Tejaswini told Mysoorunews.com “I am not happy today. I saw all the medalists sharing the happy moment with their parents, but I am not that lucky. I stay in hostel and my sister and aunt are my guardians”.

After doing her primary studies at her native, Tejaswini later went to Talkad for high school, followed by PU at Malavalli.  She scored the highest marks and got laptop as prize in PU. It helped her during her degree studies as most of the classes were conducted online due to Covid-19 pandemic, Tejaswini recalled.

“My friends and faculty at the college encouraged me, so also the hostel warden who helped me a lot. I thank them all. They appreciated my write-ups. I once wrote about Padmashree Manjamma Jogathi. My friends and faculty were very much impressed and encouraged to join Masters in Kannada. So I joined MA at Manasagangothri”, Tejaswini added.
