BDM International always takes pride in their students. And we want to congratulate another brave heart from our school. Sohom Bhattacharya of BDMI has faced a trauma at a very young age. Being deformed at birth, is a different story altogether. But losing a complete hand at the age of six, is enough to lead any kid to depression. But Sohom didn’t let his childhood tragedy of losing a hand while at a vacation come between him and his dreams. A supportive cohort of teachers and parents helped Sohom bounce back into his everyday life and perform as a top bracket student at the school. Sohom though scored a 65% in CBSE Class X, but the absolute value of the marks doesn’t often tell the real story. Without his disability, Sohom would have scored much higher, claimed his teacher. Due to his ability, Sohom was allowed an extra hour to complete his papers. But his father Bishnu Bhattacharjee completely agrees with Sohom’s teachers that if Sohom despite his disability has reached thus far, imagine what he could have achieved if that accident hadn’t occurred. Sohom is currently studying commerce with IT in his school and is undecided upon his future career with software engineering and accountancy being his prime choices.
