Now a days coaching institutes earn crores of rupees but still can’t provide quality education. The private schools (at least the one where I studied) charge as high as 15000 bucks as monthly fees. Still, the matter of the fact is that most of the students rush to coaching institutes for studying.
Some of them even go to the same teacher’s coaching institute who is the subject teacher in the school. Seriously, are you kidding it man? The teacher who couldn’t teach you in class, will give you better notes in coaching! The bend of the road is just this. Of course the teacher won’t teach properly in classroom, because if he will, then who’s gonna come to his coaching for studies? There are students who even claim that the particular teacher didn’t give them enough marks because they do not attend the coaching classes.
Then there are still other coaching institutes (which prepare you for competitive exams) who run the advertisement of false alumni by offering the student who topped a handsome amount.
And then, there are still some students who give free tutorials to poor students who can’t even afford going to a school…
This photo was clicked at Gomti River front in Lucknow, India, where I spotted a boy teaching 4 kids who can’t afford going to school. I so wanted to have a conversation with the boy so as to ask what inspired him to do so, but then didn’t want to interrupt him while teaching. I have often seen similar sights in Lucknow’s Jaineshwar Mishra Park (one of Asia’s largest park), with the difference that they were a group of friends, teaching multiple poor kids. If these kids won’t get a degree, atleast they’ll learn how to read and write!
