    With schools closed to most pupils and teaching taking place online, many parents are struggling, with many lacking devices for pupils to access lessons and school work.

    The situation has inspired 62-year-old father Prem Gyani to refurbish old laptops, which he then distributes to local families using his tuk-tuk, Tara.
