Alwar (Rajasthan): Imran Khan, the 34-year-old government school teacher from Rajasthan, who shot to fame after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech at London’s Wembley Stadium says he plans to continue developing educational apps, especially in regional languages which can help more people.
Khan, who teaches Sanskrit at a government school in Alwar and describes himself on his website as a teacher in Sanskrit Education Department from Rajasthan, has developed over 50 mobile applications related to education and dedicated them to students.
“I am Imran Khan, a teacher in Sanskrit Education Department from Rajasthan. GKTalk is my web portal for educational purpose to provide a support to Hindi medium students,” Khan said on the website.
Towards the end of his speech, Modi had recalled work of Khan.
“My India is in Imran Khan of Alwar,” Modi remarked, saying that leaders of the world ask him with some amazement how there is so much harmony in a diverse and big country like India.
Also an app developer on his website, Khan has had no formal training in this regard. He started developing apps as a hobby after learning from his brother’s engineering books.
His most popular app is the general science one in Hindi with over 500,000 downloads and 18 million screen views. But, according to Khan, he is not for money here.
“Everything in life is not for money, because the people who I have made these apps for, can’t buy them,” Khan told a news channel.
“I plan to continue developing educational apps, especially in regional languages which can help more people,” the teacher added.
In good news, the state-run BSNL will now provide free internet to Khan for developing his apps.
