The inspirational journey of Sunitha – From begging inside trains to becoming a model and an actor

In November 1998, two young children, a girl and her younger brother, were found begging in an electric train. On reference by local authorities, Udavum Karangal, a OneStage NGO rescued the two abandoned children, merely 3 and 2 years old respectively. They provided them with medical treatment and admitted the girl in Apollo Hospital.More importantly, Udavum Karangal provided them with a new home – with care, rehabilitation and education. They admitted both the children at their own run RVN School in Thiruverkadu, where they completed their 10th standard.

Sunitha, the elder among the two, completed her training in Nursing and was placed at Aishwarya Nursing Centre, a reputed Organisation in 2013. She worked hard, moved out to live on her own and became independent. Now well placed, Sunitha has even taken up a few modelling assignments and has acted in a few short films as well. Having ventured into the glamorous world of tinsel town she is working hard to pursue her dreams of becoming a successful actor.

Her brother, Lakshmanan, after completing his 10th standard, joined a Diploma course in Civil Engineering at Ramu Seetha Polytechnic college, Madurai. He successfully completed the course in 2016 and now works as a Civil Supervisor at a construction site in Chennai. Both the siblings are well settled and standing on their own two feet today. They visit Udavum Karangal often to meet Mr. Vidyaakar, one of the key organization members for his guidance and blessings.

Ms. Sunitha in an interview with the “Indian Express” had recalled and shared her early struggles and her wonderful memories and life at Udavum Karangal. She fondly remembers the warmth, support and helping hand extended by PAPPA – Vidyakar.

Sunitha is now leading a happy life and frequently visits the UK to seek the blessings and guidance of Mr. Vidyaakar, whom she says she cannot forget. Sunitha has dedicated her success to PAPPA-Vidyaakar for all the help extended to her and her brother Lakshman.
