Kousalya Kharthika, who hails from Madurai, has become the first-ever differently-abled contestant to bag the jackpot prize money of Rs 1 crore on the Tamil reality television show Kodeeswari.
The mother of a one-year-old toddler, Kousalya has triumphed over her disabilities throughout her life and became a university topper and went on to secure several degrees. Currently, she works as a junior assistant at the Principal District Court of Madurai.
Speaking about how the money will be used, she adds, “I want to do my bit for people in need, especially the Deaf and Dumb School in Nagercoil where I had studied. I also want to visit either Italy or Switzerland which have been my dream destinations.”
Actress and host Radikaa Sarathkumar, was overjoyed by Kousalya’s achievement.
“I must say that I am lucky to have met her and experienced her incredible win. Her success is truly an inspiration and will motivate many others. I wish her all the best in life and hope that this achievement helps her make a positive difference in her life,” Radikaa says.
