Sowmya -Shwetha-
Is there a third one by any chance?
Then that 'jewel'would definitely be by the name 'Sushikshithaa'! What to say of this family where in their house the 'Goddess of Education' resides!
You have all made us proud! God bless!

Sowmya Kamath, you are our pride.

I rather congratulate the two achievers' parents for being their daughters' constant support, without which the girls would not have reached where they are at present. Shame to the society that wishes for boys to take on their family's name but see what the girls have achieved.

We need more gems like Sowmya and Shwetha. Parents, please encourage your children and seek assistance if finance is the hurdle.
