Rajakumar Soosai Manickam

I was born in a small village called Sanavoorani in Sivagangai district, Tamil Nadu, South India. My parents are Soosai Manickam and Arockia Mary. I have an elder brother and two elder sisters.

I belong to the Province of South Asia. I entered the Marist life in 1999 in Trichy. After two years of initial formation, I went to Sri Lanka for the Novitiate where I took my first vows in 2003. After returning to India, I did the bachelor degree in Physics at St. Joseph’s college, Trichy and went to MAPAC in the Philippines in 2006 for my post-novitiate formation programme. In 2009, I completed my teacher’s training at SAS College of Education in Trichy and was appointed as the bursar and a teacher of Marist Higher Secondary School at P.Udayapatti, Karur district. After two years of service in the school, I was appointed as the bursar of the India Sector in 2011. In the same year, I had my perpetual profession in July.

I have completed my M.A. English literature at Annamalai University and am currently doing my MBA in Human Resource Management.

Since 2011, I have been working as the bursar of the India Sector. I have participated in various courses and workshops both locally and internationally. I have also been working in Marcellin Trust in different areas for the last seven years. I now live in Maria Shanthi Illam community in Trichy with two other Brothers.
