At a time when communal forces are busy dividing human beings on the basis of religion and caste; are slaughtering humans in the name of protection of animals. There are a few persons who are lighting the candle of humanity. One among them is a school teacher Mrs. Sri Devi. Lady teacher who imparts education to her students irrespective of religion, caste, colour and creed, has done a remarkable act which is indeed slap in the face of communal forces.
Mrs. Sri Devi pawned her jewellery to ensure admission of her poor student in Bhawan’s College. Thus she arranged one year fee of a Muslim boy.
