While the entire nation is still struggling to find ways to put up with the on-going pandemic,
education is one thing that has been most affected next to health. With the closing down of the offline classes, many students, thousands to be exact, were disappointed and were almost at the verge of giving up.No doubt that there are many online platforms providing quality education, but investments having already been made, most of the students, hailing primarily from the middle class and poor families, were not able to make it owing to the paucity of money. However, Abinash Mohanty, 24, came up with the ABINASH CLASSES, primarily for the students of ODISHA, where he conducts classes on Google Meet, provides quality education at the cheapest price.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Abinash,24, is a young yet experienced educator. He is a graduate in Computer Science and a post-graduate in Political Science. Currently, he is also an undergraduate of Law. Teaching found him back in 2013, when he was just 16 years old. Back then he was an ICSE topper. He is an alumni of Blessed Sacrament High School, Puri. He secured 95% in the ICSE board. Back then he wanted to join the Indian army after clearing the UPSC NDA examinations. But destiny had different plans altogether. Right after his admission into SCS Junior College, Puri, his father, who was a tax consultant by profession, went missing. His mother, though highly qualified, yet was physically and mentally unstable. So, young Abinash decided to take up the responsibility of managing the household all by him. He started giving private tuitions to the students of the same school where he matriculated. His teaching style was unique as he personally had himself tuitioned very less. In addition to that, his job was nothing less than God to him. Soon, he started becoming a known face in the arena of Educators in Puri. When he took up admission in Computer science Honours in SCS autonomous college, he started his own tutorials, named THE REFRACTORS…He continued the tutorials till 2018, only when he had to close it owing to his
joining of PRABHUSHREE ENGLISH MEDIUM SCHOOL, as a teacher right after his graduation. He had barely completed a month , when the final sorrow of his life arrived.His mother, Late Smt.Arati Mohanty was diagnosed with a deadly triple negative breast carcinoma, fighting with which she passed away in just 6 months. During these 6 months, he lost all his tuitions as he wasn’t able to give time. But then he took up a couple newer ones after his mother’s death, but alongside that, he also started preparing for the UPSC CSE. He was a student leader and the President of the Students’ Union of SCS autonomous college. Due to this, he had a huge friends circle, though that actually helped him a lot during his mother’s illness, yet he knew that he could not focus that way and needed a newer environment. So, he shifted to Bhubaneswar, the capital city of Odisha.15 days to his arrival, and the saga of lockdowns and shutdowns started which made it difficult for him to find a square meal. He remembers managing with pakhala(water-soaked rice) and raw onions for days. However, he got two tuitions, when the restrictions started to be relaxed. Through that one tuition, he got 3 newer ones. His financial conditions had barely started improving, when this year’s second wave started. He had now, only one way, ONLINE CLASSES. He decided to take up a Wi-Fi connection and ordered a whiteboard, tripod stand and some markers. One day, suddenly it struck to him that now as he was in a position to conduct the online classes smoothly, so why not try offering some courses at the cheapest possible price and this is how , ABINASH CLASSES came to life on 1st June.
