Welcome to our very first blog post! Starting from this month – we will publish interview excerpts from various people who are supported by Manitha Neyam Trust in Sri Lanka.
Meet R. Thasan, an eleven year old boy from Batticaloa, Sri Lanka, who is currently at Hindu College Hostel in Ratmalanai.
Thasan’s story – His Appamma (paternal grandmother) raised him after he lost his parents long ago, due to causes he does not know. Working as a cook, his Appamma was unable to support Thasan, and applied for him to come to Ratmalanai Hindu College a year ago.
Life in Hindu College Hostel and hobbies – So far, Thasan enjoys being at Ratmalanai hostel. Like all young boys, he stays active, and loves playing cricket, table tennis and break dancing in his downtime.
Life’s goal– As for his goal, Thasan aspires to be a high court judge. When asked why, he responds: to save innocent people by making sure bad people get in trouble for their crimes.
(As narrated by Thasan to our Interviewer, Suhasini Aravinthan)
