In the dire times of coronavirus, many people have come forward and are restoring faith in humanity. Jodhpur-based educator and founder of Utkarsh Classes, Mr Nirmal Gehlot does a heroic act in this crisis by donating Rs 21 lakh. He donated the lumpsum amount to Dr Prakash Rajpurohit, collector of Jodhpur and the funds will further go to the CM-Relief Fund of Rajasthan. "We all have a joint responsibility to deal with the global crisis which has hit the humankind. It is our responsibility to ensure that every citizen of the nation remains safe", he said.  

The educationist and philanthropist have revolutionized the educational technology in India with the latest innovations. Mr Gehlot is very active on social media and is campaigning to make people aware of the global epidemic. This major donation from Utkarsh Group shows how wholehearted he is towards the contribution. Founded in 2002, Utkarsh Classes was an offline education system which has now set itself on a new level with the latest advancement of technology. With having a smart class facility in 2015, it started online education with smart practice sessions in 2016. Moreover, Utkarsh Classes has got its own mobile app and YouTube channel with more than 3.25 million subscribers. 

In this moment of COVID-19 crisis, Gehlot has decided to run 250-hour online classes for free due to the closure of coaching classes and colleges. The staff of Utkarsh Group in such times are given paid leaves understanding the security of the faculty members. However, the online classes for the students are still on. By empowering education on a pan India level, Nirmal Gehlot has rightly taken the responsibility by making this humongous contribution. Besides this, he is also associated with many social services and philanthropic organisations. Earlier on his wedding anniversary, he gifted a blood convection vehicle to Umaid Hospital in Jodhpur.

He earlier quoted, “In the tough times of COVID-19 crisis, online education is working the best. We are proud that the faculty members at Utkarsh Classes are able to educate children virtually with simplified concepts,” With his recent contribution, the district collector Dr Prakash Rajpurohit was all praises for him and described his collaboration as an inspirational one. The other officers present at the Collector’s office applauded Gehlot’s work. Isn’t it great to see such educators coming forward to strengthen the country’s hope in such tough times?
