Fact check/Verification

We utilize Google searches with keywords and reverse image searches to

locate the original sources of the viral videos. And found that these viral videos have no connection with  the national curriculum.

In order to find  the original source of the “bicycle training” video, we looked for the keywords in the rhyme found in the viral video. We found a YouTube channel called “Biswajit Borah Education.” On this channel, we found a video titled “SCERT Assam Class 1 Assamese Poem “Tiling tiling cycle solai feriwala jai” for kids,” which was uploaded two years ago. The video reveals that the poem is from the first grade of Assam’s Angkurun Anand Path. Additionally, the same viral video can be  found on a Facebook page called Ratan Lal Saha. . On November 17, Ratan Lal Saha posted the viral video with a caption that reads, : FLN Training on Poem Poster for Oral Language Development. You can watch the video here.

In a related development, a video of teachers practicing duck calls as part of the new curriculum went viral on social media.
