She has written over 650 exams in 10 years for the disabled
February 12, 2018
30-year-old N M Pushpa Preeya has written 657 exams in 10 years. Not for herself, but for many disabled people in Bengaluru.
Pushpa, who works for a multinational, started writing as a scribe for a blind school student in 2007 and since then has been helping disabled students, including people with cerebral palsy and Down Syndrome.
She says that what she writes decides their future and she is always alert. Even when the candidate gets tense, she stays clam. Sometimes she has to repeat a question 30-40 times to make sure the candidate understands it thoroughly.
Pushpa says that when she was in school she was thrown out of the exam hall as her family could not afford to pay fees. She was able to continue with the studies only because she got some help from well wishers.
Pushpa has been a saviour for many people.
