Education for many in India seems like a distant dream, especially to those who do not belong to the urban and niche class. Earlier this month, a post from the famous Humans of Pune went viral on social media.

This post was updated by Tumblr, and has been shared by people across the globe. The picture was taken by Humans of Pune on their Facebook page who had bumped into this young woman and learned about her powerful story. The lady was never able to attend school as her parents’ were not of the idea to invest money on education. The world had given up on her except her 5 year old son, who she would patiently wait for to come back from school and teach her what he had learned.

      A very poignant story! The mother learning from the child. I am sure by the time the child gets to college the mother will be a very learned woman!
