MADIKERI: Last year’s floods and landslides in Kodagu rendered her family homeless. Yet, she didn’t lose hope or shake off her determination.
Overcoming all odds and predicaments, Iymudiyanda D Sinchana has secured 95.67 per cent (574 marks) in science stream in the Karnataka PUC result 2019 recently announced by the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board.
A student of Vidyanikethana P U College in Gonikoppal, Sinchana dreams of becoming an engineer but her family has lost everything in the floods in Hemmethalu village near Madapura. Her father, Iymudiyanda Devaiah’s 10 acres of coffee estate and paddy field perished in the landslides. Staying in a rented house now, they have no financial resources to make Sinchana secure a professional engineering degree. Devaiah says he wants to take up a job but has no skills other than agriculture.
