ETYMOLOGY BEHIND THE NAME

In Tamil culture, it’s a primary belief that naming represents and holds certain values on one’s life. Since, Tenith’s parents held cultural and traditional values to greater esteem, naming followed the same.

Tenith Adithyaa (டெனித் ஆதித்யா) = Ten + ith + Adithya + a

‘Tenith’ is chosen according to numerology and astrology to represent a person who has ten diverse talents.

‘Adithya’ refers to the sun and the energy it holds. To amplify the power of sun as stated, an additional ‘a’ is added with ‘Adithya’. Hence, the term ‘Adithyaa’ is chosen to represent a person who has more will power and energy than the sun in our solar system.

‘Tenith Adithyaa’ symbolizes a person who holds more will power and energy than the sun and excels in ten diverse fields of choice.

He is very much attached and connected to his hometown, that he embraces it in more than few occasions. Tenith honoured his hometown by naming a game level after his village in 2016.

FAMILY

Grandma

The one person whom Tenith obeys and loves unconditionally is his grandmother. The bond between them is indescribable. She always comes to Tenith’s matter of defense without questions and always taught him the values of life along with the difference between the right and wrong.

Tenith became fluent in both Tamil and English at the age of 3. His grandmother played a vital role in his literature fluency as she ensured his routine communication proficiency by engaging in conversation that seemed like interested to him. The entire childhood was shaped by his grandmother.

As a single child, the brought up usually brings selfishness and loneliness but his grandmother’s unconditional love has showed Tenith that a person can love someone more than himself and that is what true love and care mean. In contradiction to what Tenith wanted, his grandmother opposed his early exposure to technology and computers.

Tenith is a lazy child and he is often too lazy. His grandmother found interesting ways to keep him energetic and playful. As time went by, his laziness became habit of choice.

The professional life chosen by Tenith is self-motivated but he sees his social life somewhat set forth by the life values taught by his grandmother in his early age. She always insisted him to ‘help others’, ‘do the right thing; no matter what’ and ‘respect and treat everyone equally’.

Till date, he loves grandmother’s riddles, stories and cooking.

MOM

Tenith spent his childhood rarely with his mother. As he was very much bonded with his grandmother, he seen his mother like a stranger for quite a while. The relationship between Tenith and his mother was somehow drastic. He fought, argued and despised his mother in his early days.

As every mother in this planet, Tenith’s mother cared and loved him in her own ways and she sacrificed much of her life towards her family. He learned will power, the essence of life and motherly care from his mother.

As every mother would, Tenith’s mother also wanted a good and peaceful life for her son. When he wanted to do something different than the ordinary kids, she was skeptical. As his mother had a traditional frame of mind, she always saw his academic accomplishments as far more important than his research. She was also feared about his future and higher education. Her fear came true when Tenith realized that traditional education is of no greater value. On this subject, Tenith and his mother were at opposite ends.

His mother wanted him to achieve in academic education but his mind was set in a different path. All these arguments were caused a greater deal of stress on his family but his firm belief pushed him to pursue towards his vision. For a long time nearly half a decade, this difference of opinion and conflict were retained between both of them. Tenith mother had a keen eye and firm position on his completion of formal education.

The traditional mindset, set forth firmly by the current education system that achievement or success of life is merely based on academic education and scores have played a huge role on slowing the progress of Tenith. Even though he was firm and rigid towards his journey and vision, the impact was delivered through his mother. As Tenith holds high regards for his family, he was ultimately compelled to fulfill the emotional needs of his mother.

The system magnified the need of traditional education and schoolings rather than giving importance to self-learning and practical education. The rather the problem arises not because of the need of education, rather it became a necessity in the eyes of society. To mingle and coexist in a social order, it became an inseparable part of the life. People undergo traditional education not because it was needed or useful in life but rather it was required to fit into the society, system and among the social peer system.
