A bunch of school college students in a distant village in Mizoram are trekking up and down a hill day by day. Purpose: they should take their on-line semester exams and the Web reception is both non-existent or poor.
The shortage of Web connectivity within the distant Mawhrei village in Saiha district, about 400 kilometres from Aizawl, has pressured seven Mizoram College college students to climb the Tlao Tla hill, the one spot close to the village with first rate Web reception.
A makeshift bamboo hut with banana leaves on prime offers them safety from inclement climate. They sit huddled collectively contained in the hut and write their undergraduate exams.
“Mawhrei is a distant village in Saiha district and is totally surrounded by hills, so there isn’t a Web connectivity in our village,” says KL Vabeihruasa, a pupil of the village.
The college is conducting the semester exams on-line in June for over 24,000 undergraduate college students throughout the state.
At a time when the nation is ready for a 5G community, this village with a inhabitants of 1,700 simply has an erratic 2G connectivity.
“Immediately we got here to see how the scholars are writing the exams on hill prime. There is no such thing as a 4G community within the village, however right here the community is secure…we enchantment to the federal government to resolve this drawback,” mentioned N Beirasachai of the Mara College students’ Organisation.
