It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.
Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.
The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of many children playing at the site instead of attending school.
When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.
Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.
Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.
There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.
Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.
Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.
One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.
man this is the coolest shit right here b.
"I had trouble sleeping the whole time I was doing 12 Years a Slave, but that night, I got even less sleep. But it occurred to me while I was weeping in the night that my discomfort was temporary and Patsy’s wasn’t and it still makes me cry. I had been given this privilege to bring her back to life and it just quieted my soul and prepared me for the next day’s work.”

Hey guys check out our latest video for our brother MoRuf
"The first time I heard MoRuf was a few years ago, with a song called “Crooklyn” off his debut EP, “Garden State of Mind: The Prelude.” It was very of-the-era, characterized by hard beats and sharp rhymes. While we all know that music, and even more so, Hip Hop, evolves with time, in the last 5 years or so MoRuf has managed to pave his own lane of lo-fi vibrations with memorable skits that add a unique texture to his artistry. Fast-forward some years later, and an eye-opening trip together to Africa and, specifically, Equatorial Guinea, we had the opportunity to collaborate on his latest offering, Shades of Moo EP.”
