Tabassum, a resident of Konaje was chosen by a team of judges comprising Prof Balakrishna Gatti, Dr Vasanth Kumar Perla and Dr Nagaveni Manchi.



The Award presentation ceremony will be held at tthe Urwa Radhakrishna Mandir Hall on February 29 on the occasion of Press Club Day, informed Muhammad Arif Padubidri, General Secretary of Mangaluru Press Club.

Tabassum who is the daughter of Abdul Samad, Khairunnisa couple  belongs to an economically backward family. A meritorious student, Tabassum though had dreams of achieving big, there was always the lack of encouragement.  She was even married off while she was still pursuing graduation.

However, the strong urge within herself to contribute something to the society paved the way for the  starting of Snehadeep organisation aimed at  taking care of HIV/AIDS affected girls, after one of Tabassum’s close friends lost her battle in  life due to  AIDS.

Her organisation functioning at Bejai presently has   26 orphan  children from various parts of the state. They are all looked after with great care and affection at Snehadeep which is  rendering yeoman service to mankind with the help of donors.
