“Teacher is the name of one incarnation of God”
The teacher, Mr. Deep Narayan Nayak, has painted blackboards on the walls of houses and taught children on the streets from 2019 to the present day, after the local school shut down due to COVID-19 restrictions imposed nationwide in March 2021.
Deep Narayan Nayak Sir teaches everything from nursery rhymes to the importance of wearing masks and washing hands to about 60 students and is known as the ‘Teacher of the Street’ to the grateful villagers. He continues to work for these children and the disadvantaged, endeavoring to illuminate them through education or providing arrangements for their livelihood.
In this manner, the sincere and endless efforts of a true teacher persist. He ensures their food, education, and physical fitness. His sole aim is to enlighten these neglected children for the betterment of the next generation. Efforts are made to educate the parents of these children as well, ensuring that the future generation is not deprived of education in any way.
Through his own efforts, he arranged vaccines for the children in the COVID situation, even reaching villages where electricity has not yet reached with a single effort post-independence. Handicraft workshops have been initiated for disadvantaged girls so that they too can live with dignity. He has extended his activities in all directions to bring light to the lives of the helpless.

About Soumayan Biswas
“Hello, my name is Soumayan Biswas. So far, I haven’t had much experience or opportunity to talk or write about myself. However, I have a keen interest in documenting the lives of ordinary people through storytelling. My journey with photography began in a similar way, and although I am still learning, I draw inspiration from observing the work of others.
I come from a modest middle-class family where photography was initially just a hobby. That’s how I first picked up a camera. As I delved deeper into the world of photography, I encountered many talented individuals, and my passion for this art form grew significantly.
I actively participate in photography competitions and have been honored at both national and international levels. However, my true joy lies in the act of capturing moments through my lens. My goal is to continue nurturing this passion and to keep learning and growing as a photographer.
For me, the essence of photography is everlasting love, and I aspire for it to remain a constant in my life. I look forward to learning from others and evolving in my craft in the days to come. That’s all I can think of sharing for now.”
