Loganathan is a 19years old from the town of Erode, 80 Km away from the centre. He has finished his motor mechanic in ITI. There was a marital problem between his parents. He didn’t know the exact reasons of it. One day the parents fought with each other and his mother was so upset that she wanted to get rid of the child. She wanted to kill him by poisoning. As she was preparing the poison, a neighbour saw and they scolded her.
Logu was just two to three days after his birth. His biological mother left him and ran away from the village. The neighbours adopted him. They gave all the facilities: food, clothes, shelter, and elementary education. But since the family was poor they had to struggle to educate the child. The adopted mother approached a catholic priest of the locality. The priest approached to a centre, “helping hand”. There Logu stayed for a month and ran back home since the boys beaten and scolded him.
The lady again talked with the priest.  The priest talked with one of the staff from the centre. Thus, the director agreed to admit him to Don Bosco Anbu Illam. There was twist in his life when his biological father came to know of his son has grown up. He wanted to get back his son. But the adopted lady approached the Panchayat. The Panchayat after much discussion, refused to give the child to the father since he is a drunkard too.
Today, during holidays Logu hardly goes home since he doesn’t want to burden the adopted family. But he wants to financially help them. He is personally indebted with the mother for her kindness, love, care and trouble she took to bring him up. In future he wants to work and earn money to help the family who adopted. He too wanted to help the boys who lack opportunity to study due to financial problems.
