Handicap no barrier

Prateek, the son of Mruthyunjaya Yaji, an employee with a private firm, says this year was a challenge, which required hard work, perseverance and dedication.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, he said his mother would read out for him for about five hours as he can neither read nor write. Attributing his success to his school and parents, Yaji said being visually impaired he was entitled to get the help of a person to write his examination as he dictated the answers.

Blind by birth, he said that his subjects included all the language and major subjects with exception of Mathematics and Science. “These two subjects were replaced with Political Science and Economics,” he explained. Prateek has secured 441 marks and wants to pursue Arts or Commerce.
