07 May, 2019

17 years old Mamta Nayak couldn’t manage to get admission years ago since several schools denied granting her admission due to her medical condition. She was detected with cerebral palsy. Mamta won the champion’s glory by obtaining 90.4% in CBSE 10th results and became the superstar of Rajhans Vidyalaya in Andheri West.
People suffering from cerebral palsy cannot move independently and they also encounter problem in speaking and writing clearly. Mamta scored 452 out of 500 in CBSE exams while managed her studies and physiotherapy sessions altogether. She was allowed to take the exams orally and exempted from appearing in Mathematics.
According to Deepshikha Srivastava, school principal, Mamta’s heroic act is not less than a motivational story for other students as well as teachers. She defined Mamta as a loving and honest child who always carries a pleasing smile on her face.
“It has been a pleasure to see her grow up,” she said.
In the success story of Mamta, her mother Rupali also bids a mention as she used to go to her school regularly to make her understand the subject learning. It helped Mamta perform exceptionally well in exams without any coaching.

Roopali showed a thankful gesture to school and said, “it was possible because school allowed me to come along with her and gave relaxation in her timing for her treatment.”

Mamta couldn’t choose music or art due to her medical conditions and she chose Social Studies wherein she scored 92 out of 100. As per her mother, she has made her mind to continue her further studies with psychology as a major subject.
