Alwar teacher praised by PM Modi declines higher post

New Delhi: Imran Khan, the school teacher from Alwar district in Rajasthan who became famous after Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised him in his speech to the Indian diaspora at Wembley in the UK on November 13, has declined to accept the post of project officer offered by the Rajasthan government.

After his contribution to education sector was mentioned in the global platform by the PM,  the Rajasthan government  in no time offered him the post of project officer in the Department of Science and Technology, reports Times Of India.

However, Imran Khan, who is content with his current job, feels that he may not  be able to work as an educationist if he accepts the post of  project officer.

Higher Education Minister Kalicharan Saraf felicitated him with a cheque of Rs 11,000 on Tuesday.

Imran Khan, a Sanskrit teacher at a government school in Alwar, was praised by PM Modi for developing 52 educational mobile apps for free in a period of three years.

Though Khan has never met the Prime Minister, he gave a presentation of his work before the HRD Minister Smriti Irani at a national seminar some time back.

  1. Mr. Imran Khan, the school teacher from Alwar District in Rajasthan, please accept my congratulations.

    It is heartening to note that you are happy in your job and refused the promotion offered by the Rajasthan Government, because you sincerely felt that you will not be able to handle it.

    In India, many of the polticians are not educated and have criminal backgrounds, be it Congress, BJP or any other party for that matter, but they all want to become ministers and enjoy and have jaunts at taxpayers’ cost and amass wealth through corrupt ways. They need to learn something from you.

  2. Its really nice to know about Imran Khan, the educationist. Had it not been Modi , he would have been still an unknown citizen India.

      LOL. WHAT IMRAN HKAN ACHIVED IS NOTHING, BUT WHAT MODI DID IS GREAT, ACCORDING TO RSS.

  3. Congratulations!! I wish we had more people like Imran Khan, Haajabba, Dr.Abdul Kalaam!!! I also appreciate the way Shree Modi-ji acknowledged his contribution. The real loser in this entire episode is Rajasthaan state govt. If they had any honest program to recognize true talents like Mr.Khan, they would have offered him a better post earlier. They wouldn’t have waited for PM’s speech. This speaks volumes on how most of politicians and govt officials operate in India. It is all about networking, cronyism, personal favors and politics.

    • Mr. Original R.Pai – please note that Imran Khan is a Sanskrit teacher at a government school in Alwar.

      PAIMAAM, PLEASE ALSO NOTE, IMRAN KHAN IS NOT A ARABIC TEACHER, BUT IS A PROUD “SAMSKRATHAM” PANDITHA!

      • Pincode Pai,
        Why are you telling me the obvious? I know how to read the report!! smiles…Now that you have pointed out samkrutam, here is a question for you. What will happen if someone tries to teach samskrutam or sanaathana dharma in your dream land of syria? Do you think that the peaceful friends of yours would allow it? smiles…

        • Original R.Pai asks, ” Pincode Pai,Now that you have pointed out samkrutam, here is a question for you. What will happen if someone tries to teach samskrutam or sanaathana dharma in your dream land of syria?”

          PAIMAAM, YOU ARE MY HOST IN SYRIA. YOU KNOW BETTER THAN ME. WHY ASK UNNECESSARY QUESTIONS?

          • As expected, Pincode Pai engages in palaaaayana vaada!! I can see why he is afraid of answering any of my questions. After all, the long beard he is growing over months now would be of no use if he can not secure entry into his dream land!!

    How a professor is discovering India’s hidden inventors

    For more than two decades, Gupta has scoured rural India for its hidden innovations, motivated by the belief that the most powerful ideas for fighting poverty and hardship won’t come from corporate research labs, but from ordinary people struggling to survive.
    Gupta and his aides have uncovered more than 25,000 inventions, from the bicycle-mounted crop sprayer to the electric paintbrush that never needs to be dipped in a paint can.
    Many of the cheap, simple ideas he spreads for free from one poor village to another with the inventor’s blessing. Some he is working to bring to market, ensuring the innovator gets the credit and the profit that will spur others to create as well.

    It is time for Modi to take a break from his globetrotting and focus on the unfulfilled promises and promote the common man inventions like many Imran’s. He should curb the communal hatred and start recognising the contribution from Maulana Abdul Kalam instead of promoting pseudoscience based on mythology.

    There are abundance of talent in India, brain drain should be stopped before someone patent the our ideas.

    Jai hind
