Bhageerathi Amma, an 105-year-old grandmother and centenarian from Kerala, became the oldest student in Kerala. She created history by appearing for the fourth standard examination on Nov. 19 in Kerala.

Bhageerathi was just 9 years old when she had to leave school to take care of her younger siblings. Thereafter, in her thirties, she lost her husband and was left with four daughters and two sons.

It is said that there is no specific age to start learning. Well, this grandmother has surely proved it! Bhageerathi became an iconic example for her desire to learn when people of Bhageerathi’s age retire to bed.

Bhageerathi’s sharpness in memorizing things combined with better eyesight and hearing helped her with the lessons.

She is indeed an inspiration to other elderly people who quit studies at a young age and want to learn then.

Karthyayan Amma, a 96-year-old woman from Kerala, made headlines last year when she was the oldest person to enroll in the Kerala Literacy Mission at the time and scored 98 % later.
