Teaching is considered as one of the noblest jobs. But, nowadays, people take it as an easy way to mint money. Even the equation of a teacher with a student has changed immensely over time. But, there are always exceptions who make our world a better place to live. 

I am talking about a social worker and a professor from IIT-Delhi who quit his job to serve the less privileged section of society. 

Alok Sagar left a lucrative paying job to serve the tribal people of Madhya Pradesh, and people can't stop talking about him.
