Thalassery: A school teacher who donated her hair to cancer patients was lauded by chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan during a public function here on Sunday.

Ananda Jyothi, a teacher at Chinmaya Vidyalaya in Chala, Kannur, was the compere of inauguration function of a drinking water project at Chirakuni in Dharmadam, the home turf of the chief minister.

In his key-note address, Pinarayi Vijayan hailed the teacher's action as a noble gesture and a model worth emulating.

“She cropped her hair for a noble cause. Every one of you can emulate the example,” the chief minister told the sizable gathering, mostly women.

Introducing herself at the start of the event, Ananda Jyothi said: “Don’t get mistaken me for a man seeing my short hair. Recently I cut my hair and donated it to make wigs for cancer patients who lost hair during chemotherapy.”

Ananda Jyothi, who hails from Chakkarakkal in Kannur, donated her hair to an NGO engaged in providing free wigs to cancer patients during a trip to Tamil Nadu in September.
