Pune: City boy scores over epilepsy

He successfully cleared the exam with a CGPA of 5.8 despite suffering from epilepsy, a neurological disorder.

As the CBSE results were declared nation-wide on Thursday, one of the biggest success stories belonged to Kushagra Singh, a student of City International School in Wanowrie. He successfully cleared the exam with a CGPA of 5.8 despite suffering from epilepsy, a neurological disorder.

“Kushagra was first diagnosed with epilepsy when he was just four years old. After learning about his IQ level around five years ago, we had to decide whether to admit him to a special or a normal school. We allowed him to continue at City International School as we wanted him to grow up as a normal child,” said Kushagra’s father G K Singh.

He added it was due to the support of school teachers and the administration that his son managed to sail through. The parents also consulted several doctors on precautions to be taken by their son. “Kushagra plays and behaves in the same way as the children of his age normally do. Now, I am looking at various options available for him in Class XI and XII,” he added. Currently, Kushagra is enjoying his summer vacations in Jharkhand.

“He is interested in History. His principal suggested that we should check-out various vocational courses and eventually get him admitted in arts stream,” said his mother Remy Singh.
