Old Policeman on a New Beat
Anoop Jaiswal, a retired Director General of Police took to teaching physics for free in schools in Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, Chandigarh and Delhi. Last year the pandemic and school closures put a brake on his four year long teaching activities. Now he has taken his classes online with the help of his son, Manu Jaiswal who teaches physics at IIT-Madras. Initially Anoop’s son was skeptical of his initiative to teach physics having only worked as a police officer all his life. However, the ingenuity showed by Anoop in making scientific toys changed his son’s mind. Manu is now shooting his father’s sessions on video and uploading on YouTube.
