AN Indian girl who was given away by her mother when she was an infant has reconnected with her biological mother after a media campaign, Makkal Osai reported.
An elderly couple identified as Vairavan and Padmavathi took in the child five years ago when the mother had to leave her behind.
However, without the identity of the biological parents, the couple could not help the girl get her identification documents.
Eventually they contacted the daily and with the help of social activists, the mother, identified only as Vijayaletcuhmi, was found.
The young mother told the daily of the circumstances which forced her to give away her child.
Currently working in Singapore and unable to return due to the travel restrictions, she vowed to meet her daughter and her guardians after the restrictions are lifted.
The mother and daughter managed to speak over the phone with the help of social activists who arranged the call.
> The daily also reported that the Indian community in Batang Padang, Perak, have urged education authorities to appoint an Indian officer to oversee the 19 Tamil schools in the district.
Indian NGOs, parent teacher associations, parents and school boards reportedly agreed to jointly petition the Education Department over the matter.
