Babar Ali is undoubtedly an ideal role model for other students. He is very hardworking and disciplined. He wakes up every morning at 7 and starts his day doing some household chores. Later, he travels a long distance to reach Cossimbazaar Raj Govinda Sundari Vidyapeeth, where he is a Class XII student. To be able to reach the school in time, he commutes by an autorickshaw for some distance and walks the remaining 5 kilometres, every day.
Babar Ali is the first member of his family to get a proper education and one of the few students in his village who can afford to study formally in a school. He is quite aware that it is only because of his father’s reasonable income and interest in educating his son that he is able to get a formal education. There are so many boys and girls in the village who are not able to study in a school because their parents expect their children to support them and let them do small jobs and earn some money for them. Therefore, Babar Ali, having seen all this, realized that such underprivileged children in his village should also get some education. With this in view, he opened a small afternoon school in 2002. Babar Ali and nine other student volunteers hold free classes for nearly 800 students from grade I to VIII. When the children of the village and nearby localities are done with their chores and jobs during the day, they run to attend Babar Ali’s school in the afternoon.
Babar Ali’s school ‘Anand Siksha Niketan’ gives mid-day meals and books to the students. Babar Ali comes to his school soon after his classes get over, giving up his own leisure for the sake of the underprivileged children in his school. Only students like Babar Ali can make a difference in the life of such underprivileged children, in a vast country like India.
