Jyoti Ananthu

Jyoti Ananthu, one of the Founders of Navadarshanam, breathed her last on March 8, 2008. Even though she was suffering from a rare lung disease for several years, she continued to play an active role in running Navadarshanam till the very last day. On 22nd March, 2008, a fellowship meeting was held in her memory at Navadarshanam - about 150 persons came from Bangalore to pay homage to her. On the next day, all the villagers were given a feast in her memory, with handmade wooden toys (Jyoti's favourite) being gifted to each child in the village.
