Latha Malini is the class V teacher in a Panchayat Middle School at Koliyanur in Villupuram District, Tamilnadu. Just five among the 32 students in her class knew how to read and write.  That was the condition which Latha decided to change.  She taught the kids after school hours throughout the year.  That meant more time at school, for which her family gave the nod. The school administration also co-operated at the end of the year all the kids who were promoted to Class VI could read and write.  That is the condition assured in by Latha’s resolve.  Citing this achievement a literary outfit by name Paavendar Peravai honoured Latha Malini at a public function and awarded her ‘Best Teacher Award’ to her.

None of the 132 houses, all thatched huts, have no doors. That is in meetankulam, Ramanathapuram District, Tamilnadu.  If anyone tries to construct a door he invites the wroth of Sivamuniappa Sami, the village deity. It is remarkable that no case of theft has ever been reported in the village. The deity itself is seated under a Palmyra tree in the open. Bunches of bells dangling all around are the only evidence of offerings by devotees.  Azhagar, the former Panchayat President, states that Sivamuniappa Sami protects the people from theft.
