A grinning centenarian has given the Kerala government another another reason to brag about its renowned literacy efforts. Kerala’s Education Minister, Vasudevan Sivankutty, wished 104-year-old Kuttiyamma well on social media on Friday after she did well in an exam conducted under the state government’s continuing education initiative.
“Kuttiyamma, a 104-year-old woman from Kottayam, received an 89/100 on the Kerala State Literacy Mission’s test. Entering the field of knowledge is not limited by one’s age. I wish Kuttiyamma and all other new learners the best with the highest respect and love “He posted a photo of Kuttiyamma who appeared to be overjoyed.
