Scoring 80 per cent in II PU may not raise eyebrows, but it is extraordinary when it has been achieved by a student without both hands. Mustafa(18) Son of Dasgir Sab, a lorry driver, and Maqbul Banu of Kolagal village was born disabled. He is the second of three siblings and the only one who is born disabled.


Courage has a new name
It takes great courage for a student to not to give up when he does not have both hands. The will power of Mustafa to change adversity to opportunity is inspirational. He competed with all the students without seeking any favors or guidance. “Neither did I take any assistance to write the exam, nor did I take exemption for writing language papers,” he said to The Hindu.


A proud teacher
Good teachers make great students. The force behind Mustafa was his teacher K. Gadilingappa, he has been his friend, philosopher, and guide. “I was transferred to Kolagal around six years ago, and I was astonished and proud to see that Mustafa was independent and faced challenges on his own. Seeing his self-confidence and positive attitude, I helped him get a scholarship for the disabled and gave him moral support to motivate him,” Mr. Gadilingappa said.


Numbers speak for themselves
Mustafa scored 74 percent in SSLC exam and aims to become an IAS Officer.


The Logical Indian salutes Mustafa all success for his future. Mustafa’s story should make everyone introspect, whether are we making use of our full potential despite all the resources at disposal? If the answer is ‘No’, let us take a vow to make use of the time and resources at our disposal to succeed in life.
