LADY ANDAL VENKATASUBSA RAO


ADMISSIONS OPEN FOR ALL CLASSES 

PADMA BHUSHAJY

One hundred years ago, Madras was, as you can imagine, a very different place, where huge, shady trees formed lovely avenues, very few vehicles were seen on the road, and people led gracious, simple lives.

It was, in other ways, not an idyllic place. There were many injustices in those days, especially against women, who were not treated well at all.

It was into that world that our founder, Andalamma, was born in the year 1894. Since she came from a well-to-do family, she had the benefit of good education (not many girls did, in those days). She went to St. Thomas Convent, Mylapore and the Presidency High School, Egmore and learnt all the crafts and skills of a young lady of her time. Andalamma, as she grew up, was also learning something else that no school taught, but everyone needed. That special ‘something’ was Social Awareness - the ability to feel compassion for the poor, helpless and less fortunate and the desire to some day do something to change their plight.

Little did she realize how her opportunity would come. At a very young age, Andalamma became a widow and thought she must now accept a life of seclusion - for widows in those days could not remarry or mingle in society.

It was then that she met the person who would change her life the Hon’ble Justice M. Venkatasubba Rao, a brilliant and much respected judge who was determined to make Andalamma his wife - a brave gesture in those times! Justice Venkatasubba Rao was a very special man - learned, courageous and upright in his beliefs. He deeply wished to transform the ills of society and in his young wife he found the ideal partner. Together, they set out to brighten the lives of hundreds of under-privileged people. Both of them believed in living by example - never to preach, but to practice their ideals, to show others by lighting the way.
