I was on an official visit to Pune as Secretary, School Education, Government of India during 2017. Raj Gilda, co-founder of ‘Lend A Hand India’, had been after me for a while to visit one of the schools run by the organisation to impart vocational education to high school students. Despite wanting to, I had not been able to squeeze time out of my hectic schedule. When he got to know about my visit to Pune, he once again approached me. Impressed by his perseverance and persistence, I decided to visit the school on the way to the airport as I was returning to Delhi. What I saw was an amazing demonstration of dedicated work.
