COVID-19 frontline workers are fighting for us and our teachers are ensuring those efforts don't go in vain. Sunita Nagkirti, a teacher in Maharashtra, went to the remote areas of Aurangabad city and took charge of educating the slum children about the pandemic and ways to prevent oneself from it. In this process, she taught them 20-seconds-hand-washing-technique using a nursery rhyme.
Maharashtra State Sports Commissioner, Om Prakash Bakoria, shared her innovative method on Twitter and since then, her catchy song and effort are melting hearts.

Nagkirti is associated with the state's scout and guide programme at Ravindra School in Aurangabad. Since the pandemic has hit the nation, she has been reaching out to people in slums to educate them about the Dos & Don’ts and other necessary preventions. "At least 30 people had tested positive in hotspot areas of Kailas Nagar and Rohidas Nagar (in Maharashtra) when I was sent there 10 days ago," she informed.
When she had begun, residents weren’t open to her help, but she made her way into their hearts with her warm nature as she distributed essentials like masks bought from her own money. On her innovative and sweet song, she said, "Children were worried when they saw bottles of sanitisers and handwash liquids. But I used some popular Marathi nursery rhymes and created a fun handwash song."
The sincere teacher has now vowed to continue to visit these hotspots even after the pandemic settles to teach her new students. Salute to her selfless thoughts!
