Palampur, July 22
A poor man was forced to sell his cow, his only source of income, for Rs 6,000 for buying a smartphone for online studies of his two children.
Kuldip Kumar belongs to Gummer village in Jwalamukhi. With the lockdown in force in March, schools were also closed. His children, Annu and Dippu, were studying in Class IV and Class II. As the schools started online classes pressure mounted on Kuldip to buy a smartphone for the children to continue the study.
