It’s said no that if you have full determination to do something, nothing can stop you; not even diseases. Cancer failed to deter Ranchi boy Tushar Rishi from crossing 90% in CBSE 12th boards, the result of which was declared on Sunday.
However, Rishi had to visit the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi in every 3 months for the check-up, even then also secured 95% without any additional coaching. The Ranchi guy scored 93 in Mathematics, 95 in English, 95 in Physics, 89 in Computer Science and 100 in fine arts.
“My condition is better now after all the treatments. But, I have to visit AIIMS for checkups and updates for every 3 to 4 months.”
Rishi believes that studying regularly reduces the pressure of exams to a large extent.
But, for a 19-year-old student of Delhi Public School (DPS); it was not an easy journey for them. Tushar’s bone cancer was detected just after the Class 10 Mock exams in 2014.
I was under chemotherapy for around 11 months. Despite, I try and stay focused on my academics. However, he returned after chemotherapy and secured 10 CGPA in 10th boards.
Unlike other students, he isn’t at all interested in doing Engineering. Rather, he wants to pursue graduation either in English or Economics from the Delhi University.
Ritu Agrawal, his mother is a professor at the Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, and father, Shashi Bhushan Agarwal works with the agricultural department.
Tushar was solely dependent on the classes at school as he didn’t go to tuitions. He was struggling with his cancer disease and we can understand, how difficult it is.
The young guy has also written a book, “The Patient Patient, the story of his struggle as a young cancer survivor. His book is selling good on Amazon.
However, the Ranchi guy still has to follow a line of treatment, a strict diet and take care of his health in order to avoid recurrence of cancerous cells.
