Madhota village in Chhattisgarh's Bastar district has adopted a unique way of continuing childrens education during the COVID-19 pandemic. The village panchayat has used its funds to install loudspeakers so that those who are not attending the classes being run in the community hall 'hear' the classes and continue the learning at home.
