Research scholar with 95 % disability gets his Phd

A research scholar with 95% disablility , for whom even getting admitted to a school was a challenge, has been awarded doctorate in Computer Science by Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in a special ceremony.

Akshansh Gupta, fondly called as Bunty Dada, was awarded Phd for his thesis ‘Brain Computer Interface’ by VC S K Sopory ahead of the formal convocation ceremony scheduled to be held next year, reports TOI.

Indeed, it’s a rare feat achieved by a 32-year-old man who grew up with cerebral palsy.
He is grateful to his mother and his school teacher Meera Sahu for shaping his destiny and rickshaw-puller Mahajan who used to take him to the Umanath Singh Institute of Engineering and Technology in Jaunpur.

Akshansh wishes to start his professional life at JNU if the university is ready to accommodate him.
