Bihar siblings fight disabilities, poverty to meet IIT dream
June 19, 2016
The story of two siblings, Krishan and Basant, one of whom has polio, is an inspiring one. They overcame both disability and poverty to get through the IIT entrance exam this year.
Basant used to take his brother to school on his shoulder and later to a coaching institute in Kota. Krishan has secured the 38th All India position in the IIT- JEE under the OBC, disabled category this year, while Basant has got 3675th rank in the OBC quota.
The only thing that saddens the two is the thought of studying engineering in different colleges. Krishan now wants to complete his Computer Science degree and Basant is aspiring for IAS.
