Viral: Students cling to teacher, cry inconsolably at his farewell
In a region in Uttar Pradesh, a video of a teacher saying goodbye to grieving children has gone viral.
After four years at the steep Chandauli Raigarh Primary School, Shivendra Singh was recently relocated.
Videos from his farewell recently show a large number of school children hugging and crying for him. Some students grip him tightly and won't let go. Teacher Singh attempted to reassure them with a smile on his face, but he also seems to be crying at his heart.
Teachers and students had showered him with presents and praise earlier on during the ceremony.
He was heard promising several students, "I will come and see you shortly. He advised students 'to keep studying diligently. You must do well.'
