Sendurai Mani: How a Goat Changed My Life—and Inspired Others at Somaiya Vidya Vihar

Sendurai Mani, Dean’s Chair of Translational Oncology at Brown University and Founder and Advisor at Iylon Precision Oncology shared on LinkedIn:

“How a Goat Changed My Life—and Inspired Others at Somaiya Vidya Vihar. Reflecting on a pivotal childhood moment: At the end of my 6th grade, we couldn’t afford the Rs. 200 ($25) school fee to continue my education. My grandmother, a firm believer in the power of education, sold one of her five goats and supported my schooling. Her gift profoundly changed my life.

This story came up recently during a chat with my good friend, Samir Somaiya. A few weeks later, Samir told me about meeting children outside his university, Somaiya Vidyavihar University, who faced similar financial barriers. Inspired by my experience, he offered them free admission to his The Somaiya School, hoping to similarly transform their lives.

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Samir for his kindness and the positive impact he’s making. His generosity is a testament to how one person’s actions can significantly affect others. I also want to pay special tribute and thanks to my grandmother, who changed my life forever through her gift and outlook towards life.”
