Migrant Labourer Tops Malayalam Literacy Test

A 26-year-old Bihari woman has proved language is no barrier as she emerged the topper in a literacy examination conducted in Kerala for migrant labourers. Romiya Kathur, hailing from a village in Bihar, scored the first rank with full 100 marks in the examination held by the Kerala State Literacy Mission Authority recently. She had reached Kerala in search of a job along with her husband Saifullah and settled down in Umayanalloor in southern Kollam district in 2014. The mother of three, who runs a juice parlour here, had written the exam at a local higher secondary school carrying her four-month-old baby daughter, Thamanna.
A total of 1,998 migrant labourers had appeared for the literacy exam in the second phase of the scheme “Changathi” across the state on January 19. Changathi (Friend) project is aimed at teaching migrant labourers, living in the state, Malayalam within four months.
Mission director P S Sreekala visited Kathur at her home here recently and congratulated her for the rare achievement.
