An inspiring story of a little explorer from Nayagarh, Orissa.
Gullu hails from a tribal area based in the interiors of a dense jungle in Orissa. His parents leave for work early in the morning and he is left all alone in the house all day. One fine morning he started walking through the jungle aimlessly lost in his thoughts and found himself outside a small building called “school” where many kids were having lunch in the afternoon. He saw the kids going for many helpings with their empty plate which was filled every time with piping hot food by the teachers. He went back home and told all the neighbouring kids about the free food distribution. They were all like Gullu, who never knew such a placeever existed. The very next day onwards, Gullu and the kids of that tribal region started going to school. Nobody has asked him to go to school, but this boy walks miles just to realise his dream, someday, of seeing the world outside his tribe. And of course, to fill his stomach with freshly cooked mid-day meals served at his school.
