To Mrs. Latha Mallikarjun, education is the art of cultivating the moral, emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions of the developing child. Having done her Dip.Sup in French and later doing her Masters in English and a B.Ed, she has taught French language for 17 years and also worked as the cultural and academic coordinator in an International School. Mrs. Latha Mallikarjun was in a state of stagnation when she got this wonderful opportunity to join Basava Residential Girls School. This opportunity opened doors for her immense interest in empowering girls and gave her a great platform to do so. Mrs. Latha Mallikarjun feels proud that she is a part of the vision of Basava Residential Girls School’s CEO Mrs Deepthi Aradhya, who is passionately involved in all the endeavours of the school for the upliftment of girls in India. Her work has also given her an opportunity to relearn all the teachings of Basavanna which were taught to her by her grandfather, the late Shri Basavaraj Kattimani. “New beginnings bring various changes. However, newness alone cannot produce transformation. We must be willing to be caught up in the rebirth that is possible with each change. Here at BRGS, we believe in unlearning and relearning”, says Mrs. Latha Mallikarjun.
