This brilliant teacher taught his students how to play Quiddich
Anshu Agarwal, a born photographer, has recently shared photos that show children from the remote Indian village of Uttarakhand playing Quidditch — a wizarding sport in the Harry Potter universe.
The kindness and talent that this guy has shown delighted us here at Bright Side. And to be honest, we’re a little envious of his students.
Kalap is a village 130 miles (210 kilometers) away from the nearest railway station of Dehradun in Northern India. Working temporarily in all-age school, Anshu Agarwal teaches the children about literature and English-speaking films.
«I show the children Harry Potter movies on Sundays. They immediately began to dream of being witches and wizards themselves,» Anshu Agarwal says.
Levitation photography has long interested Anshu, and that’s why he came up with the idea of recreating the game of Quidditch using his camera.
«When I told my students that I could give them some flying lessons, they were so excited that they literally dragged me into the field. During the four days the shoot took, the students repeatedly jumped from wooden platforms until we collected enough material for the photos.»
«The shoot was quite difficult, but when my students saw the photos, they squealed with delight.»
«I was so happy and proud that I could bring a little bit of magic into their lives. These feelings are beyond words.»
