Kerala: The granny who learnt to read and write at 104

Kuttiyamma, a 104-year-old woman in the southern Indian state of Kerala, had at all times desire to go to school.

Still an early marriage and a life focused on household chores put stop to that dream.

However her dream became matter-of-fact when she eventually got a chance to join a government-sponsored literacy program.

At 104, she acquired knowledge on how to read and write – something she had desired to do since she was a child.

Subsequently she made headlines by scoring 89 marks out of 100 in the official literacy test.
