Bellary: Mustafa, a 18-year-old student of Veerashaiva College near Bellary town in Karnataka, has just cleared his II PU exam with 80% marks and topped his college. But unlike other students, Mustafa has achieved this feat by writing the exam with his toes. Mustafa was born disabled, with no hands, and lives in Kolagal village with his parents.
Mustafa, who also scored 74% marks in his SSLC exam, refused all help that is provided to the disabled for writing exams. “Neither did I take any assistance to write the exam, nor did I take exemption for writing language papers,” he says. Regarding his dreams, Mustafa says: “I want to become an IAS officer and would like to serve the country.”
