Meet 104-year-old Nanda Prasty, an elderly man in Odisha who has been teaching students for free under a tree for over 75 years! Nothing has ever deterred the passionate man, not even extreme weather conditions.
Prasty started teaching when he saw illiterate people in his village who could not even sign! He now teaches the great grandchildren of the students of his first batch. He not only takes classes for children but also the elderly at night.
According to the Bartanda sarpanch, the teacher refuses any support from the government but authorities have decided to build a facility for him so he can teach comfortably.
