The victor of the current year’s Kalpana Chawla Award for Courage and Daring Enterprise is a 40-year-old mother of twins. In any case, Jayanthi is no gullible homemaker. As an administrator and supervisor of a crematorium in Namakkal, she has broken boundaries of position and sex.
In the wake of getting the honor from boss clergyman J Jayalalithaa, Jayanthi appeared to be excited as journalists made a direct path to meeting her backstage. She addressed persistently all media questions the vast majority of which were coordinated at her calling.
Jayanthi reviewed how she cleared out her occupation as a guardian at a shelter to take up her present calling in August 2012. She was at first required in cleaning however soon figured out how to work it.
“At first everyone in my town was against it. My significant other was not glad about me taking up this work. In any case, now he has acknowledged it,” Jayanthi said. She said her mom too was worried about her calling yet at long last gave in. “She passed away a couple days back realizing that I have been perceived by the state government for my coarseness,” she said.
Jayanthi, whose father kicked the bucket in 2003, said among the explanations behind the restriction could be her being conceived in a purported upper standing family and the calling being looked as one held for those from the retrogressive groups.
