Former Indian cricketer V V S Laxman took to his twitter handle to laud the PT teacher of Barali Government School, Brahmavar.

The teacher has been making efforts to retain the students, by driving the school bus to ferry schoolchildren to the school.

The tweet said: “Students in Baralli village in Udupi district had to trek 6 kms to reach their school. A lot of students started dropping out. Rajaram, the school teacher for science and maths took on the mandate to solve the problem and himself started driving a bus to carry and drop students.”

A large number of the cricketer’s followers have lauded and appreciated the teacher’s work. Reacting to the tweet, Indian Professor Rao lauded cricketer for appreciating the work of teacher Rajaram. “The people of Udupi will respect you. Let your appreciation be a model for all.”
