Brilliance beyond barriers

first_imgKolkata: Sagar Chandra of Burdwan Municipal High School has made it to the tenth position on the merit list of 137 candidates released by the West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education. But what separates Chandra from other students is the fact that he is differently-able. “Chandra does not like to be classified as differently-able and he had appeared in the examination from the general category, scoring 486. He has already cleared the entrance examination and been selected to study Chemistry at Indian Institute of Science (IISC) in Bengaluru,” said Sambhunath Chakraborty, headmaster of Burdwan Municipal High School.

One of his legs is short and he uses an artificial limb but he never missed the opportunity to run along the corridor with his friends during tiffin break or after the end of school hours. “I have appeared in a number of competitive examinations like JEE (Advanced) whose results are still awaited. My admission at IISC is scheduled in a few days. So I will seek admission there and would decide where to study after the results of other examinations are out,” said Sagar, who is also an expert in drawing and has won a number of awards in the regional and national levels.last_img read more
