Ex-students of Kankali Secondary School in Khairahani Municipality-1 have built a house named “Guru Aawas” for their teacher Pashupatilal Karna.
The Kankali Secondary School ex-students Society had launched a campaign to build a house and collected money from its colleagues. All the students spontaneously contributed money. Arjun Lamsal, president of the ex-students Society, said that the students have built a comfortable house named ‘Guru Aawas’ for Karna, a teacher who has been teaching in the same school for a long time.
About Rs 2.4 million has been spent on Guru Aawas
Chairman Lamsal said that the house was constructed at a cost of Rs 2.4 million. The house has everything from furniture to a washing machine. Chairman Lamsal said that the gift was given on the occasion of Saraswati Puja despite the delay in handing over the house due to coronavirus infection. Teacher Karna did not have his own house there. The teacher could not build a house even though he had bought a small plot of land in front of Kankali School.
The new house has been handed over on the occasion of Saraswati Puja on Tuesday. The house was handed over to Karna in a ceremony where Rajesh Hamal, the great hero of Nepali cinema, was the chairman. On the occasion, Mahanayak Hamal praised the students for their exemplary work.
“The love shown by the ex-students towards the teacher is excellent,” said Mahanayak Hamal. Teacher Karna responded that there is no limit to the happiness of getting a new house. After receiving the house, teacher Karna expressed his happiness and said, “I highly respect this work of the students.”
