AKKAMMA DEVI was born 5 September 198 in a small village tucked away in the hills of the Nilgiris. She was educated at St. Joseph's Convent, Coonoor, which was five miles away. She had to brave the cold and wet. Weather and walk to school, while her younger sister rode on her father's shoulder. Coming out with flying colours in both her junior Cambridge and Anglo-Indian high School Examination, she went on to do her B.A, in Economics at St. Teresa's College, Ernakulam. Here she took an active part in the quit India movement of 1942 when she was arrested and detained. Her humble beginnings notwithstanding she won the 1962 General Election with a thumping majority and became the first lady Member of parliament from community and the Nilgiris Constituency. She was awarded the Life-time Achievement Award in January 2003 for fifty years of social work in rural areas with exemplary results.
