Rajma, the Great Guru

I have never had the fortune of meeting her so far. Only, the media reports about her receiving an award from the President of India, made me proud being a native of the Nilgiris & a Badaga. And take notice.
If you sit back and think of ONE teacher of our school whose teachings & advise has made us what we are today, we feel so happy and grateful to have studied under her/him. This 'guru's' teachings touch our lives in many ways.
When I wrote about her in my websites, the response from her students and others was huge and I realised 'HOW ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SO MANY LIVES'. That great person is Mrs.Rajamma from Kethorai Village, Rajma Mam to her students.
Recently when I received the following email from her, appreciating the work on these websites, I felt humbled. I can feel how powerful her words and teachings would have been.  
I take the liberty of publishing her letter to put on record my deep gratitude and I am sure she will remain a powerful influence in many more lives.
Dear JP, Greetings. Hope my mail finds you in good health and cheers. Nice to read a lot of issues about our community in your web site.
"A lot of things go unquestioned.. Several questions go unanswered... Many words go unsaid.. A number of words go unheard.. Some dreams are buried alive..." WE CALL IT LIFE. WHAT LIFE HAS IN STORE FOR US TOMORROW , NO ONE KNOWS.
In this mysterious life , a very few people like you leave an ever lasting mark for their life time. You are doing a wonderful job. Keep it up. ...
Take care. My best wishes for you will remain always. With regards, Rajma
