Pupils take up books, pens, and hand-stoves

A makeshift hand-stove is placed along a student's desk at a school in Chaping township, Xinhuang Dong autonomous county in Central China's Hunan province, Jan 6, 2011. Without a heating system at school, students have to take along their makeshift hand-stoves to keep warm. The stoves are made from different materials, such as metal bucket and washbowl. The Xinhuang county, located in western-most Hunan, has been hit by severe freeze brought by cold snap from the north recently. [Photo/Xinhua]
