ALLEN Career Institute Kota’s student suffering from cerebral palsy now admitted in IT Branch of IIEST Shibpur

If you have the will to do something, then every obstacle turns into an opportunity. The most prominent living example of this is Cerebral Palsy suffered boy Tuhin Dey. After staying in Kota for three years to prepare for the engineering entrance exam from ALLEN Career Institute, Tuhin will now study Information Technology at the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST) Shibpur, West Bengal. In JEE Main, Tuhin has secured category rank 438. In Tuhin's body, Cerebral Palsy is the Arthrogryposis multiplex congenital disorder in which the muscles become so weak that they can't even bear the body weight. Tuhin can neither move his hands and nor can stand on his feet. Only the head portion above the neck remains active. Tuhin, who came to Kota from Midnapur, his native city in West Bengal, to prepare for the engineering entrance exam JEE-Advanced after passing his tenth three years ago, prospered with normal students despite the physical disorders and adversity. Tuhin, who considers eminent physicist Stephen Hawkins as his idol, wants to research astrophysics. Despite getting no support from hands and feet, Tuhin operates mobile and computer from the mouth. He even writes using his mouth. Not only this, he has better knowledge of computer programming as compared to normal students. Tuhin said that he got everything in Kota that he had thought of; in fact, he got more support than what he had expected. He states, "ALLEN took complete care. My parents were here with me. Right from my commute to the institute, everything was well taken care of by Naveen Maheshwari, sir, to my studies. Counseling took place from time to time. Not only this, but I was also treated with neuropathy. A separate table-chair was arranged for me in the class to facilitate my seating with the normal children; there were helpers to take me to the class and bring back".
