“I never took any coaching classes. If it were my teachers who would read out my lessons for me during extra hours in school, I had my mother at home who would sit with me and ensure that I don’t have a problem”, Rakshit Malik from Amity, Sector 44, Noida, told Times Of India.

He was beaming with confidence as he posed for the cameras flashing at him, sending out this message that no impairment can be a hindrance to success if one sets one’s mind to achieving one’s goals! Not only has the 18-year-old guy bagged the first position in his school along with Unnati Agarwal but also the third rank in the differently-abled category of CBSE +2 results declared on Saturday.

Rakshit could write his exams on his own till 5th standard but in class sixth his vision started to blur. However, this could not diminish his zeal for studies. His parents arranged for a scribe for him as they were familiar with a similar problem in his elder brother. Both the brothers had their vision blurred at an early age due to genetic problems. While the elder one graduated from SRCC, the younger, Rakshit has finished his class 12th with Humanities stream.

In fact, Rakshit scored a 100 in History paper! No wonder his mother Rachna Malik, a resident of Karkardooma in Delhi, is feeling proud of him. After all, she was the one who would read out their notes prepared in enlarged fonts at home.

Rakshit aims to become either a lecturer or an IFS officer, though he is not aware of the eligibility criteria for the latter.


The Logical Indian community salutes the undying zeal of Rakshit, congratulates him for the laurels won and wishes him all the best for his future endeavors!
