Dhanalakshmi – another name for resolute.
Having worked in coffee estates for almost 20 years she came to Tiruvannamalai back to her home village when her husband and son passed away. With the income she makes in Wild Ideas she supports her second son, who is unemployed and often drunk, her sick daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. She knows that her income alone will not be sufficient to transform her economic condition. But if there is something she has learnt from Wild Ideas it is to be resolute. Even at her age, she has her targets well laid out; to repay a loan the family has incurred, to see at least one of her grandchildren go to college and continue to work till she has the strength to do so.
We learn from her every day.
