Former IAS officer Arun Kumar holds a free coaching programme for UPSC hopefuls on the banks of the Ganga in Patna.
Arun abandoned his job to support kids who couldn’t afford to attend pricey coaching sessions, inspired by his wife Ritu Jaiswal’s humanitarian activities. To save money on infrastructure, he decided to hold these open-air sessions every morning. These sessions are attended by around 3,500 pupils.
Arun, who is from the 1994 batch, self-studied for the IAS test. Many of his students have passed the exam since then.
Arun says that all he wants is to establish an educational atmosphere in which students may study together and provide guidance to each other.
