"As students can't go to schools, I'm bringing education to their doorstep. Many students don't have access to online education, so this is helpful," says Rudra Rana, the teacher. pic.twitter.com/N32f6OlzCN
In an interview with ANI he said:

He sets up his classroom on the street and students happily join in. Rana and the students also maintain social distancing during the classes.
People have been praising the teacher for his noble work and his dedication towards his students.
This is a very good way of studying in the state of Covid-19, when children are being deprived of education due to online class. https://t.co/yKPiEwJxpc— Ayushi Shukla (@Ayushishukla26) September 17, 2020
