Why even a once-in-a-century pandemic cannot stop teachers
Their dedication goes beyond education to their students’ well-being and ability to tackle covid-19
There is a pond in a big village. It is neither big nor small. Just enough for it to be the centre of life. Lotus covers half of the water surface. A stone tile-clad platform hugs part of the northern edge. Rising 20 feet above the water, it is 150 feet long, and 30 feet wide. Six magnificent trees shade its full expanse. One can miss the temple at one end, since it is barely 3 feet high, with a similar length and width. No magnificent demonstration of their deities’ glory is required if the devotees are sure of their faith.
