Pralay Dey, a 17-year-old from Tripura showing up for class X tests, made a point to not give disability a chance to come in his learning’s way. As indicated by Indian Express, Pralay’s hands are not framed appropriately rendering him helpless to hold or handle things.
He has an uncommon disfigurement which only deteriorated by the orthopedic treatment, as his hands got more slender. He stated, “I feel no shortcoming. My mother and my teachers have taught me well. I am trying to give my best. I practice writing with my feet at least two hours a day. I am comfortable writing with my feet.”
Badal Chakraborty, the principal of Chandrapur Higher Secondary School-leading Class X board examinations-was informed that Pralay can’t sit on seats. So he orchestrated a wooden platform for him to sit and write on.
Mr. Chakraborty stated, “His pace of writing and intellect is worth mentioning. I stood beside him on the first day of his Madhyamik examination for 30 minutes and saw him write. This student may be challenged but he is brilliant and beats his condition with courage and success.”
Pralay’s dad is a daily laborer and his mom an Anganwadi assistant. The family keeps running on ₹9,000 that his mom earns. His dad was stressed over him growing up to be powerless. Be that as it may, his mom, albeit stressed as well, chose to show him and help him grow up with pride.
She additionally expressed that by the age of 3 he could compose English and Bengali alphabets. She said, “I was worried about him too. But soon after I started teaching him, I found Pralay was a quick learner. I decided against leaving him at any child care home and took care of him myself. Today, I am confident I was right.”
Pralay wants to pursue Humanities and turn into a Professor of English Language and Literature someday. The Board is additionally mindful of Pralay and his scholastic performance. Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) Deputy Secretary, Pradip Sengupta says, “We have seen video clips of him and enquired in his school.”
He further added, “Pralay Dey is an extraordinary student and his academic performance is commendable… He didn’t want any extra help. He is writing with his feet and competing students with all abilities.”
