Rajasthan Boy Climbs Mountain Everyday In Search Of Network To Attend Online Class


We all know that with the global pandemic and the imposed lockdown, schools, colleges, and workplaces are all going online. Online classes and virtual meetings have become the new normal. But what about the people who live in remote areas where internet connectivity is poor? Sitting in the comfort of our homes, we tend to forget about the difficulties they might be facing.

For example, a boy named Harish, a student of Jawahar Navodaya Vidhyalay, who hails from a small village named Darura located in Barmer, Rajasthan, has to climb a mountain every day in search of internet connectivity so he can attend online classes, reports Dainik Bhaskar.

Harish’s classes start at 8 AM and end at 2 PM, his father revealed. He has been climbing the mountain top for a month and a half now. So much so, that he has placed a table and a chair on the top where he can sit and study. He returns home after his class ends, reports Navbharat Times.

Earlier, a teacher from a village in Bengal had to climb treetops in search of internet connectivity so he could conduct online classes.

It is truly sad to realise how a large section of the society is suffering due to lack of basic resources. It makes us realise how privileged we are!
