Meet the boy who defied carebral palsy & dyslexia.Ability India
Yash Avadhesh Gandhi, 21 years old, has left behind all the problems in life and has joined IIM Lucknow. His story is inspiring as he suffers from a disease like cerebral palsy and dyslexia. They need a writer to take the written test. Despite traveling lamely, they travel by local train to Mumbai. Not only that, his pronunciation is unclear but his sentiments express his views clearly. Cerebral palsy and dyslexia is a condition in which the muscles required to speak become weak. However, none of these problems prevented him from scoring 92.5 in the CAT-2019. Gandhi has enrolled under the handicapped quota for the academic session 2020-22 at IIM Lucknow. On this, Gandhi living in Mumbai said that nothing could be happier for him. He said, “I am happy to be a part of IIM Lucknow.” He has been taking online classes since last month.
Yash started preparing for CAT in July 2018, when he was in the second year of his undergraduate course. He said, ‘I have problems with numbers. So I had to put extra effort into the Quantitative Ability section. It was tough but not impossible. “His hard work paid off and he received a call from all IIMs for interviews with IIM Bangalore. He got offer letters from IIM Kozhikode and Indore and chose Lucknow because of the high rank. Yash’s parents are his support system. Awadhesh Gandhi, who works in a private company, said, “When he went to school, he had difficulty learning and was not able to compete with his classmates.” But he learned slowly. He always had to work harder than normal children.
