Kerala CM jokes with 96-year-old who topped literacy exam

Nov 01, 2018 21:08 IST

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan felicitated 96-year-old Karthyayini Amma who became the oldest person in the state to write and crack the literacy exam, scoring 98% marks. Speaking to reporters, an overjoyed Karthyayini amma said, she did not copy from anyone, rather let others copy from her. The Alappuzha resident raised her family by doing odd jobs as a sweeper at temples and households and has never attended school in her life.
