Empowering Through Social Service: The Awe-Inspiring Journey of Dr. Saisuman N
In the heartlands of Karnataka, a woman of unshakeable determination and far-reaching vision has emerged as a force for change. Dr. Saisuman N, an Advocate, social worker, and State General Secretary of Karnataka Pradesh Janata Dal (Secular), a name that
resonates with both intellect and compassion, stands at the intersection of academic excellence and social responsibility. Born into the embrace of the state's fertile soil, she carries the legacy of her farmer father Narayanappa. H. and her homemaker
mother Lokamma. Her roots run deep, nurturing her commitment to uplifting those who walk the less-trodden paths.
Married to the distinguished Mr. Hanumantharaya D, a reputed and prominent High Court Advocate from Gujjunadu Village in Pavagad and blessed with two beautiful daughters, Sai Bindu G.H. and Sai Kruthi G.H., Dr. Saisuman N embarked on her academic journey
with zeal. She achieved a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering in Electronics and Communication from the esteemed Viswesvaraya Technological University and Bachelor of Law from Karnataka State Law University, a testament to her dedication to knowledge.
However, her aspirations extended far beyond personal success.
Dr. Saisuman .N. is a woman that firmly stands by her beliefs, and her admiration for former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda inspired her to take the plunge into politics. She joined Janata Dal (Secular) with the unwavering support of her husband, Hanumantharaya
.D, who played a pivotal role in her political journey. Dr. Saisuman .N. started her political career at the grassroots level in Pavagada in Tumkur, and her outstanding commitment to serving the people did not go unnoticed. Her exceptional skills
in mobilizing people and her unflinching dedication to the party caught the attention of many party leaders. MLC Tippeswamy was the first to recognize her potential and encouraged her to engage more with party work. Later, during the Pancharatna and
Janata Jaladhare Yatras, former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy noticed her leadership qualities and decided to reward her within the party, promoting her to become the State General Secretary.
Dr. Saisuman N is a young and dynamic leader, who is driven by a single
purpose - to enhance human well-being. Despite facing a challenge with the lack
of reservation for her community in the central quota, she did not give up on
her dream of becoming a part of the Indian Administrative Service. Instead, she
used this as fuel and taking inspiration from prolific writer, social worker,
chairperson of Infosys Foundation, and Padma Bhushan recipient Dr. Sudha Murthy
to pursue her mission, which involves meeting the fundamental and intricate
needs of all individuals, with a keen focus on the marginalized, the oppressed,
and those ensnared by poverty's grip. The corridors of social work called to her,
promising a career filled with meaning, action, diversity, and the potential to
touch lives across spectrums. She always prioritizes humanitarian and moral values and quickly responds
to the suffering of others, starting with the devastating floods in Uttara
Karnataka and then Kodagu, she showed immense compassion and dedication to
helping those in need.
Dr. Saisuman N and her team also recognize
and honor the achievements of outstanding scholars, athletes, and individuals
excelling in special activities. Through her compassionate efforts, she has
provided crucial financial assistance for the education of underprivileged
students. She has gone above and beyond by distributing free books and bags to
"Investment in knowledge," she asserts,
"yields the greatest returns for society."
They firmly believe that acknowledging
excellence is crucial in motivating individuals to strive for more significant
goals. They also honor the dedication of exceptional teachers who go the extra
mile to contribute to their students’ future, and also offer encouragement and
financial support to artists. These awards and recognition serve as an
inspiration for others to excel in their respective fields.
Dr. Saisuman N's heart is filled with empathy,
which drives her to alleviate suffering and work toward social justice. She has
been a guiding light for communities in need, providing support to those who
yearn for it and amplifying the voices of those who are often drowned out by
the struggles of life. She personally visits hospitals regularly to check on
the plight of the poor patients suffering, and provides financial aid to those
unable to afford treatment.
Once, a pregnant cow had fallen into a deep well
and was unable to rescue herself. However, the compassionate Dr. Saisuman and
her team arrived at the scene and successfully rescued the cow, relieving the
animal from its pain and suffering. The cow was provided with proper medical
care and nine days later, it gave birth to a healthy calf, which brought joy to
the villagers. Dr. Saisuman and her team's compassionate efforts not only saved
the cow's life but also inspired the villagers. Their heroic actions
demonstrated the power of kindness and dedication to saving lives, reminding us
that we can all make a positive difference in the world. In recognition of
their efforts, Dr. Saisuman and her team were felicitated and honored, serving
as an inspiration for us all to be more compassionate and caring towards
others, whether human or animal.

upliftment of underprivileged individuals serves as an inspiration to many.
With unwavering resolve, she embarked on a journey to empower people, enabling
them to stride towards success with newfound strength. Her aspirations extend far
and wide, encompassing underprivileged individuals from all walks of life.
In another incident, a woman named Manjula met with
a grave head injury in an unfortunate accident. She was rescued by the locals
who lifted her and called Dr. Saisuman N, who realized the severity of the
injury and immediately contacted a well-known hospital to arrange for her
treatment. After a month, the doctors deemed Manjula fit to be discharged, and
her family arrived to take her back home. However, they were facing severe financial
constraints and were unable to pay the outstanding hospital bill. Dr. Saisuman N
came forward to help the family by paying off the outstanding balance. She
understood the financial difficulties that the family was facing, and didn't
want them to worry about the hospital bill during a time of distress. Thanks to
Dr. Saisuman's help, Manjula was able to return to her family without any
Their philanthropic efforts extend beyond their
community, restoring temples to their former glory and donating there,
hospitals, and charitable trusts that benefit society at large. They firmly
believe that contributing to the betterment of society is essential in creating
a harmonious world. Her selflessness has also led them to assist economically backward
women, offer financial aid to poor associations and organizations in Pavagada,
and visit orphanages and old age homes to provide comfort and support. Not
stopping there, she has even helped those who have lost their homes in
accidental fires to get back on their feet and provided hope to patients who
were struggling with their health due to financial struggles. Her dedication
and generosity are truly remarkable.
In times of crisis, Dr.
Saisuman N continues to make a difference. She has played a vital role in
saving the lives of COVID-19 patients by donating oximeters to the government
hospital in Pavagada. She has also provided financial assistance to distribute
food kits to starving poor people during the pandemic. Dr. Saisuman N's
contributions have not gone unnoticed, and her efforts have led to the
first-ever initiative in Karnataka to sanitize every village with Drones and

there are people like Dr. Saisuman N who are committed to making a positive
impact in their communities.
