Gaya (Bihar) [India], Nov. 15 (ANI
): Platform number 1 at Gaya railway station
is bearing a different picture these days, as a policeman, Praveen Kumar, with the Railway Police, who used to chase rag-picking children once, has turned teacher and is now teaching 'k', 'kh', 'g' and 'A' 'B' 'C' to them.
The drive is a brainchild of the Gaya Railway Police
officers, who engaged these rag-picking children living in slums along the railway tracks in education.
Encouraged by the number of rag-picking children
coming for study and their dedication, a policeman has been deputed by the officers to teach them regularly.
Praveen told ANI
, "I have been directed to teach these children. DSP and the inspector also do the same for these kids."
Suman, a rag-picking child who now attends the classes, said, "We are rag pickers, but now we are studying here. I wish to get into the police service some day." (ANI
