Sugumar is one of Pathway’s recent graduates. A pleasant, good-looking youth with a shy smile and large, striking eyes, Sugumar entered Pathway as a small child. His father left before his birth and his mother has worked long hours for years at a hotel in Chennai, saving whatever rupees she could to help with her son’s future education. Though he excels at math and is a hard worker, Sugumar feels that a career in catering would be both practical and obtainable. He expresses his gratitude to Pathway for kindness and generosity shown him.
