After service, social worker gifts house to govt.

Service to man is service to God. This could not have been truer if we were to go by the example of 82-year-old Datchayani. Widowed at the age of 15, the fragile-looking octogenarian of Timiri, has come a king way, which has not been easy. Since the fear of a solitary life gripped her early, she adopted her elder sister’s daughter, but the joy of bringing up and mentoring a child was shortlived as the girl grew up and entered wedlock, leaving Datchayani once again lonely. In the twilight of a life lived well, she said she has offered to donate her house, where she has been residing, to the Social Welfare Department (SWD) and submitted the documents of the property to Collector Nanthagopal.
