It is about the passion for craft andÂ the hard workÂ Â of a unique person which has blossomed intoÂ such a variety of works.
PS Padmini,Â was born and brought up in Kottayam. Alumni ofÂ M.D. seminary and St. Anneâ€™s school Kottayam, she graduated from BCM College Kottayam and took her B.Ed. Degree from Mount Carmel Training school Kottayam.
She started her career as a Teacher in Trivandrum, served as Headmistress in various schools and retired as Co-ordinator, UNICEF, State Institute of Education, Trivandrum.
She is a manifestation of bubbling enthusiasm and unending willpower. Through her dedication for work even at 72 , she surprises and inspires the younger generation.
She is so passionate that she will say â€œI have been fulfilling my dreamsâ€¦â€. Nothing more and nothing less.
From child hood,Â Â inspired by herÂ sisters and brothers, she used to do each and every craft workÂ that she came across. Pursuing craft at that time was a difficult process, since she learned each item through bits and slices from many persons.
The path ofÂ learning became swifter and smoother, when she met the right person, the guru , George Fernandez ofÂ â€˜Floraâ€™ the art school.Â It was another beginning, which flourished, beingÂ a student ofÂ AnithaÂ and Lekha of ContinuingÂ Education Sub Centre, College for Women, Trivandrum.
She remembers with love and reverence, her late husbandÂ Sri. N. Gopinathan Achari, Former Head master, Govt. Model School (retired as DEO), whose consistent and unconditional support was the major pillar of strength.
Her maiden exhibitionÂ at Museum Auditorium is the manifestation ofÂ the enthusiasm, will power and determination which has not ebbed with age.
