Dear MEL Topic Readers,

The Indian granny who became literate at 104

Never say it’s too late to start something new and challenging. Here is a 104-year-old woman in Kerala, India who mastered reading and writing her language just recently. She never had a chance to attend school because of her early marriage and household duties when she was young. She started learning how to read and write just a year ago. When she was sitting next to her grandchildren to observe what they were studying, a teacher offered her books if she wanted to study. That was when she finally started learning how to read and write Malayalam, the only language she understands and uses. Eventually, she scored 89 out of 100 marks on the official literacy test. Interest and passion seem to motivate people to challenge new things.

Enjoy watching the video to learn about this amazing centenarian.
