This Indian headmaster spent his savings so that his students could fly for the first time
This is a heartwarming story of how selfless and largehearted a human can be! Kishore Kanase is a headmaster of a government school in a small village in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. Many of his students have never even traveled in a train, let alone an airplane. Last year, when he took his students for a trip to Agra, he overheard them saying they would want to fly in a plane.
The idea stuck with Kishore and this year, he decided to take 19 of his students to a trip to the national capital Delhi in an airplane, spending his own hard-earned savings on the airfare since their parents could hardly afford the tickets.
“The airplane seems so tiny when we gaze at it from our playground. It is huge when we see it on the ground,” Tohid Sheikh, a class 6 student told the Times of India, beaming from ear-to-ear.
Kishore said that he wanted the students to experience a ride in airplane early in their life. He had raised over 60,000 rupees from his savings to fund the trip.
