Favorite quote: “Did you think I too will
Spend my days in mundane search of food,
Telling petty tales and gossips,
Worrying myself with unwanted thoughts,
Hurting others by my selfish acts,
Turn senile old man with grey hair
To end up as fodder to the
relentless march of timeless Death,
As yet another faceless man???”-Bharathiyaar (Tamil Poet)

My dream for Pudiyador: To create opportunities for children to explore various areas and hone their skills in different streams; and to provide an environment to change their academic education from memorization to learning.
