Amid the continued uncertainty over the prospect of reopening of schools in the unprecedented times of covid19 pandemic, students of Telangana Social Educational Institutions Society (TSWREIS) has risen to the occasion during the challenging times of corona pandemic by converting an adversity into an opportunity. Students themselves started a silent academic revolution in Telangana’s rural villages and tribal areas by launching Village Learning Circles (VLCs) to promote continuity of studies, while schools remain closed due to corona pandemic`. Tenacious and zestful students with excellent communication and teaching skills have set the ball rolling by converting homes, church compounds, religious places, school buildings, community halls, etc., as learning centres with the support of village sarpanches, public representatives, volunteers, parents, teachers and community members. Some exceptional and brilliant students from classes 6 to degree have been diligently conducting themselves as teachers and imparting education to their younger schoolmates and peers in his/her village/locality as pandemic keeps schools shut. VLCs have been keeping the lamp of learning shining and bridging learning gap and digital deprivation in extraordinarily challenging times of covid 19. In fact, these are serving as ideal platforms for poor and underprivileged children to keep up with their studies, despite lack of resources like smartphones, internet connectivity and laptops.
