  • In a state like Arunachal Pradesh which has the lowest literacy rate in the country, a coaching centre, tucked away in an obscure village, has been imparting quality education to the tribal students for years. The coaching centre, situated amidst greens at Misram village in Pasighat, headquarters of the East Siang district, has around 350 students on its roll, from nursery to class VII. Known to students as the 'Litchi' school because of the abundance of stately litchi trees around the structure, the coaching institute was started in January, 2000 by three people from Kerala Lekha Ramachandran, her husband D Ramachandran and brother-in-law C K Babu. The centre has become so famous in its 11-year existence that students from far away villages in the state like Balek, GTC, Mirbuk and Diking come to take classes. ''Even students from Assam get rental accommodation here at Pasighat to join the centre,'' C K Babu told PTI. Babu said that the idea of the centre was first mooted by Lekha Ramachandran who is very fond of children. The notion that tribal students are weak in their studies has been amply proved wrong by this centre, Babu felt. I will say all they need is a little push and good guidance. Today many tribal students are cracking competitive exams, points out Babu. As soon as the students get their report cards from school, their parents first come to show it to us. This shows that they are satisfied with our work. It feels like the hard work we did has finally paid off Babu smiles. Many former students of the coaching centre are now employed as doctors, engineers and government employees. Several are pursuing professional courses like MBBS, veterinary and engineering in many renowned institutions of the country.
