Sullia: A picture of a girl attending her online class amid heavy rains while her father held an umbrella over her head has gone viral on the internet.

The picture was reportedly shot in Ballaka, a remote village in Sullia taluk in Dakshina Kannada district.

The picture shows Narayana holding an umbrella over his daughter, a class 10 student as she attends her online classes for the state board (Secondary School Leaving Certificate).

The picture was clicked on June 15, but it went viral on the occasion of Father’s Day.

Mahesh Puchchappady, a journalist and All India Areca Growers Association’s General Secretary, clicked the picture and shared it on Twitter.

He said that the girl comes to the same place around 4 p.m. every day, adding that in rural areas, students are attending online classes like this, because of mobile network issues and heavy rain also.

 

Puchchappady asserted that this is a common sight in Mangaluru-Sullia-Guthigar-Kamila where one can find students sitting outside their homes to attend classes, as cell phone connectivity has always been an issue in hilly regions.

A recent Unicef India report, titled ‘Rapid assessment of learning during school closures in the context of Covid-19: Findings from a rapid assessment covering nearly 6,000 parents, adolescents and teachers across six states in India’, highly recommended that governments refocus on creating content for children.

It further states, “Wherever internet is an issue, the governments must focus on developing light Apps that can easily operate on 2G network also which will ensure that students who are deprived of online classes, can pick up from these light learning Apps,” the report, released in May.”
