What 200% commitment could do to this Government School
After travelling 20km along the NH-8 from Rajnagar, Rajsamand to towards Ajmer, I took a diversion into a narrow stony lane. After taking that turn, I travelled 2km more along that lane through little dense jungle to reach at the base of a hummock. At the top of that hummock, was my desired destination, Upper Primary School Deviyon Ki Merda.
To reach that school, I climbed up through a slanted road. From there, the scenic beauty of surroundings mesmerized me. Surendraji who teaches English there welcomed me and introduced with his co-teachers. They were 5 of them. After a short interaction with them, Surendarji took me to a classroom. The classroom décor surprised me. The walls were decorated with different charts and a white board on the wall was a welcome change. Children wore clean dress, shirts tucked in, feet black shoes & socks. The stereotypical notion of a rural school got shattered & I am glad it did.
