Coronavirus pandemic altered the way education in India is provided. With schools forced to shut down, the learning mechanism shifted to online classes. 

However, challenges galore for many students trying to cope with virtual classrooms. So when teachers in Keezhal near Vadakara in Kerala were sent to students' homes to see if everyone had access to online classes, they were taken aback when they realised that a primary class student did not have a power connection at her house.

During the visit, K Sreejan, a teacher, found that wiring was yet to be completed at the primary class student's under-construction home.

According to media reports, Sreejan, who had done a wiring course before becoming a teacher, personally took charge of doing the house's wiring. 

He was assisted by the other teachers, P Rameshan, Arjun P S, Fahad K, Jijeesh R, and Faisal M.  The school management also chipped in to buy electrical equipment. Within a month, the wiring of the house was complete. 

"The wiring was completed in just a day-and-a-half. However, the earthing work was difficult due to the rocky terrain upon which the house was built. We approached the KSEB officer concerned. The problem was resolved after two additional electrical wirings were laid. It was incredible to see the smile on the little student's face on seeing the bulb light up," Sreejan told the New Indian Express. 

The DYFI local committee later gave the student a mobile phone.
