New Delhi: As Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a massive crowd at Britain’s Wembley Stadium on Friday, he mentioned a teacher from Alwar, who donated 50 mobile applications for educational purposes to the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).

“My India is in that Imran Khan from Alwar,” said Narendra Modi at Wembley Stadium while addressing over 60,000 people celebrating British-Indian ties.

Imran Khan, who was introduced as “Mister Android” by the PM is a teacher at a government Sanskrit school from Alwar in Rajasthan. Khan has developed over 50 mobile applications for educational purposes. These apps are already available on android setups and have been downloaded by over 2.5 million users until now.

He has contributed these applications to the Digital India and E-learning initiatives.

HRD Minister Smriti Irani praised his efforts to develop such innovative and user-friendly applications, “Imran Bhai has done a stupendous job. Dedicated his educational apps to d Nation on d 7th of November in Delhi.” She tweeted.

The 34-year-old Khan is a mathematics teacher at the government Sanskrit senior secondary school in Alwar. He has no formal training in computers or application designing and has learnt all his skills from books or Google. Khan also owns a website www.gktalks.com to answer general knowledge-related questions.

He expressed his delight on the achievement of his initiative and the recognition given by the government. He believes it’s his duty as a teacher to make education simpler and accessible to all students. He aims at giving benefits to students from all walks of life through his digital applications, said Imran in an interview to a magazine.

Since as many as 40-45 percent people choose to use mobile services in their local language, Khan intends to find a translator for his work.

Post this acknowledgment from Modi at Wembley stadium, Khan is now further motivated to bring diverse e-learning platforms for facilitating self-study amongst students. Furthermore, he wants to boost creativity in students and not just passive education.
