Alwar, Rajasthan: A popular teacher of Current Affairs and a world-record holder in teaching most number of students online added up to his popularity by refusing to take a leave and deciding to continue to teach on Monday on his wedding day in Rajasthan’s Alwar.

Priye Kumar Gaurav of Alwar taught his students by coming live on his wedding day via a ‘Shiksha Rath’.

One of the authorities of the coaching institute, Nirmal, said: “He had informed about his wedding date around five months ago. Usually, a holiday for 4-5 days is granted, but he said he did not wish to miss any single class and would take lectures on the wedding day as well.”

Soon after the programme of Ladies Sangeet, he had started preparing for the class on Current Affairs in the morning.

Shiksha Rath, meaning Chariot of Education, is the flagship project of the Touch India Trust, a Delhi-based charity started in 2003. It is highly-focused, long-term initiative providing after school classes for underprivileged children.
