Full Name: Thangaraj Raman

Grade: X

Age: 16

Family Background: My family is from a village in Dharmapuri. My mother stays at home and works as a housewife. My father works in a textile shop. He earns money for the family. I have an older brother. He is in Grade XI and goes to a government school near our home.

Overcoming Challenges: The biggest challenge I have overcome is my Grade X board exams. I am happy that they are done and I am confident that I did well.

Favorite Shanti Bhavan Memory: My favorite Shanti Bhavan memory is the 2008 Shanti Bhavan School Day. I was in Grade VI at that time. There was a spectacular performance by the students and staff. Many volunteers from Broadway were also involved in the performance. I danced and sang in the choir with my friends and it was a truly fun and memorable day!

Hobbies: I enjoy playing the piano and listening to music. I love reading books and watching movies. I also like fixing electrical appliances.

Future Goals: When I grow up, I want to be a software engineer. I want to start a company of my own. I am going to help Shanti Bhavan and my family when I am successful.
