Age No Bar


She, so eager to learn,
Had to bid goodbye
As, she lost her mother
And her hopes, did die.
Determined, that she was,
Decided to fulfill,
Her hunger for knowledge
With her determination and will.
“My age is just a number”,
She said with confidence
And resolved to study
With due diligence.
She was helped by
The Kerala Literacy Mission.
She was permitted to stay at home
And give her examination.
Bhageerathi Amma, she is called,
Scored a century,
In her age and marks,
Making her noteworthy
An attempt to bring to light the story of Bhageerathi Amma, the oldest lady who resumed her studies at the age of 105. She is the recipient of the Nari Shakti Puraskar.
