Published on

We celebrate #TeachersDay on September 5th in India. On this Teachers Day, we can easily recollect some great teachers like Sarvepalli Radha Krishnan and Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam.

However, most of us don't even know about these unsung heroes like- Aditya Kumar, who has been riding his bicycle 60 kms every day for 20 years to educate the poor children.

Professor Sandeep Desai, begs in Mumbai local trains to get funds to educate the unprivileged.

Babar Ali, gives free education to domestic helpers and child labour.

Rajesh Kumar, teaches the deprived under a Delhi Metro bridge.

We salute all these great #teachers who are less known to the world. Let's spread the word.
