Roorkee | India

Anant Vashistha was a first year student of Production and Industrial Engineering at IIT Roorkee. Every Saturday and Sunday, he would travel 8 kilometres away from his college to a small village named Kaliyar, with a bag full of books, some chalk and a sense of purpose. There he would set up a small tent with blackboard and chairs and begin his class for some 20-odd children, all for free.
