Rahul Yadav, Devendra Singh and Sahil Gupta, residents of Behror, a small town in Alwar, Rajasthan, have started a digital revolution by developing 95 free apps for education.
Today, more than one million students are studying with these apps and brightening their future. The three friends say that they are greatly inspired by PM Narendra Modi's Digital India initiative.
Their app RDS Education, is on Google play store for over five months now and has connected over 10 lakh students. Rahul says,
We want that students will study from tabs instead of books.
The types of study material on the app RDS Education, range from NCERT books, notes and solutions for students from class VI to XII. The other apps revolve around spirituality, competitive exams, general knowledge, general awareness. In a conversation with Hindustan Times, Sahil says,
We cleared class XII exam from a school in Behror in 2014 and after dropping out of college started an online business of selling vegetables. We managed to save some money and bought a laptop and learned how to develop apps through Google online courses.
They have also built an artificial intelligence bot on Facebook messenger, which helps you navigate the social media app and find answers to your questions on any of the topics mentioned above. Soon, the trio intends to explore the video space with YouTube.
While Rahul and Devendra are the sons of farmers, Sahil’s father is a shopkeeper in Behror. Sahil who dropped out of National Institute of Technology, Silchar (Assam), joined Devendra who was preparing to clear NDA entrance exams and Rahul dropped out of KMSU University before joining the team.
