ADILABAD: The Project Officer of Integrated Tribal Development Agency, Utnoor, K. Varun Reddy and other tribal elders felicitated the first woman teacher from the backward Thotti tribe in Adilabad district, Kudmetha Rambai.

The felicitations to the retired teacher came on January 27 at Ginnedhari village in Tiryani mandal of Kumram Bheem Asifabad district at the programme celebrating the birthday of Michael Yorke, a British researcher who had conducted studies on the different aboriginal tribes in these parts during the 1970s and early 1980s.

Rambai was a hard working teacher who had moulded the future of hundreds of her students, especially tribal children during her illustrious career. In her family, she got her elder son Manohar to become a doctor who is now working as Additional DMHO, Agency at Utnoor and her younger son has become a teacher.

The gritty woman from a most backward tribe, which has singing ballads as its main occupation is considered to be a reflection of the great Savitribai Phule who rooted for education of girls. She had tended to her husband in his struggle with health for 20 long years, according to her doctor son Kudmetha Manohar whose wife, incidentally, is also a doctor.
