October 18, 2013 - Bangalore, Karnataka, India

UST Global, an information technology solutions and services company for Global 1000 enterprises, today hosted a motivational talk by Dr. Malathi K. Holla, Paraplegic brave heart, Arjuna Awardee and Padmasree, and, founder of Mathru Foundation that serves the physically challenged with motherly care. The inspiring talk was specially organized as part of a guest speaker series for NowU, a voluntary forum of UST that is dedicated towards attracting, retaining and growing women talent.

Dr. Malathi K. Holla, afflicted by polio as an infant, stands tall in the world of paraplegic sports in India by sheer grit and determination, and, has won medals around the world. As an inspirational woman leader she shared her life’s story and spoke about her own experience, her pain and her success.

Speaking to the audience at the Bangalore center of UST Global, she said, “Disabilities may come in many forms and are not necessarily physical obstacles that prevent you from reaching your goals. Mental obstacles can prove to be just as big of a setback but what is important is to never lose sight of your dreams and passions.”

Nandini Sabanayagam, General Manager at UST Global said, “Our guest speaker series is quite popular with our associates as it is an opportunity to meet successful women leaders from different walks of life and interact with them first hand to learn what makes one a successful leader. It is our great pleasure and honor to have Dr. Malathi Holla, founder of Mathru Foundation as our speaker for today’s session.”

Commenting on the long-standing association between UST Global and Mathru Foundation, she added, “Transforming lives is one of the core values at UST Global, and the UST Global Welfare Foundation was founded in 2011 to help bring that mission to life. Having undertaken several projects across India, we have also had the pleasure of assisting Mathru Foundation by means of knowledge sharing for the children as well as fundraising to help sustain various efforts being undertaken.”
