Babar Ali

Murshidabad,

West Bengal

Dear Babar,

First of all, I want to congratulate you on the wonderful work you have been doing! I came across your story while watching the BBC. After watching the show, I felt that I too should participate in your education project. It is remarkable that you can manage to teach 800 students after school and with a meager infrastructure. I am amazed by your efforts and the enthusiasm of the students who are interested in getting a good education.

Inspired by your efforts, I have decided to build a school in Murshidabad for your 800 students. Not only that, I would also ensure that some of the best teachers from Calcutta can come down and teach at this new school. I also plan to give financial support which is necessary for the functioning of this school so that we can give these 800 students a quality education. I hope this news makes you and your students happy. All the best in all your future endeavours.

Anju Kar,

Minister (Mass Education),

West Bengal
