Walking home from school, 9 years old Babar saw some of his children of his age unable to attain school because of their poverty. He was so agnoised by the thought that his companions were unable to study like him because of their poverty, he decided to do something for them. Determined to share his education as a ifth grader at a state-run school at Beldanga in Murshidabad district, he turned teacher to his poor friends in the backyard of his own home. He has been over this many years, a silent crusader imparting education to hundreds of poverty-stricken child labours. He completed his schooling from Beldanga C.R.G.S. High School. He has completed bachelor of Arts (English) from Krishnath College and Master of Arts (English and History) University of Kalyani. Mr. Babar Ali is regularly invited for lectures from schools and colleges across the country.Swami Vivekananda is his role model.
Babar Ali has been honored with several prestigious awards for his outstanding contribution in the field of education since 2002, when he was 9 years old. Babar Ali was featured in Amir Khan’s ‘Satyameva Jayate’ in 2012 and Forbes 30 under 30 in 2016.
" It all started as a game when I used to teach my sister, my first student in my backyard. Later, some migrant children from the village used to come to my classes and that was how the school was born."Babar Ali Headmaster, Ananda Siksha Niketan
