Imran Khan, a Sanskrit teacher from a small town Alwar in Rajasthan has all the reasons to get a mention by the Prime Minister as he donated 52 educational apps to Ministry of Human Resource Development for free, contributing his part in Digital India and E-learning.
When Narendra Modi told "My India is in that Imran Khan from Alwar," in Wembley Stadium in London while addressing Indian diaspora, the audience rolled in cheer with pride.
Not only that, his apps have got more than 30 lakh downloads and four crore screen views every day.
Praising his efforts, HRD Minister Smriti Irani enthusiastically tweeted, "Imran Bhai has done a stupendous job. Dedicated his educational apps to the Nation on d 7th of November in Delhi."
Imran started developing these educational android apps for the students after a close encounter with the, then, district collector of Alwar, Ashutosh AT Pednekar. Giving credits to Pednekar, Khan tells that it was him who was his inspiration and motivation for developing apps. "He saw my website gktalk.com and asked me to develop apps as the future lied in it," Khan told Media recently.
Adding further, Khan said, “I will continue working towards maintaining these apps as they require constant updating on the backend. Besides, I also plan to bring diverse e-learning platforms for facilitating self-study among students. Moreover, my biggest aim is to create a platform which boosts creativity among students and not just passive learning.”
