Differently-abled students cross selection hurdle

The joy of the special achievers knows no bounds on getting seats in reputed colleges

Sarthak Kamat, suffering from ‘Duschennes Muscular Dystrophy’, a rare muscular disorder that affects one in 3,500 newborns, is elated as he got a medical seat in M S Ramaiah College.

“I was a bit nervous about getting a seat in M S Ramaiah College, as it had only two seats for the disabled candidates. My worries are over and I look forward to realise my dream of becoming a psychiatrist.”

Overwhelmed with the achievements of her son, Sarthak’s mother, Sneha Kamat, said: “I feel on top of the world as my son achieved what he wished.” Sarthak is a fan of Dr Devi Shetty, Amir Khan, Anil Kumble and hopes to meet them in future.

Another candidate, Sohan R Telsang, who was hoping to get a seat in computer science engineering at PESIT said: “My father is my source of inspiration and thanked both his parents for their care.” The jubilant parents of Sohan expressed happiness and wished that their son would work harder to excel in future, leaving aside all the difficulties that he faces.

Shruti, a candidate with a spinal cord bend towards her left, was successful in grabbing a medical seat in a college of her choice.

With all the physical disabilities due to polio, Santosh P has realised his lifelong ambition of pursuing software engineering from a good college. The parents and the guardians of the specially-abled candidates were pleased with the arrangements made for the counselling by the CET authorities.

“The authorities were highly co-operative and gave the students a little extra time to take decisions,” said D C Patil, the parent of one of the candidates.
