As COVID-19 pandemic has confined everyone to their homes, people are resorting to various ways to live with the virus. And in the process, schools have started functioning online as teachers are giving lessons to students through the internet from homes. And a photo of a teacher striving her best to teach her students with the best possible resources available to her, has gone viral. She made a tripod with things available at home, the best form of Indian jugaad. As the photo was widely shared, her dedication and efforts to impart education to students were applauded. The teacher Moumita B, shared the video on her LinkedIn account with the caption, "As I didn't have any tripod so I made an Indian Gugad for taking online classes from my home."

To support her phone as he writes on the board, she made a stand that does the work of a tripod. A hanger can be seen hung upside down from the roof tied to some strings. She has secured the phone which is recording her to the hanger using strong threads. The phone is kept at the right angle recording the entire board she is writing on. Probably to ensure that the phone does not move or shake, the threads coming from the roof are tied to a chair on three sides kept below the phone. The photo was shared on Twitter with the caption, "I don't know where or who. But this picture made my day. A teacher setting up their online class with available resources.
