Mukesh is a Std X stu­dent at Sri RK Ab­hang Vidyalaya in Ul­has­na­gar. He is look­ing for­ward to his board ex­ams in March 2019, he said, adding, “I was not able to sit for a long time be­cause of the pain. But now, I want to make sure that I study well and com­plete all my pa­pers.” Be­ing able to sit for longer hours means that he can also bet­ter en­joy play­ing chess, a skill that has won him a cou­ple of tour­na­ments. He is also look­ing for­ward to re­unit­ing with his friends at the chil­dren’s home in Ul­has­na­gar.

be­fore he found a doc­tor will­ing to per­form the pro­ce­dure. Gun­jal said the surgery could be life-chang­ing for the boy. “We have never had cases where a child has re­ceived such a ma­jor surgery. He is a bright boy and he has an in­ter­est in stud­ies. We are thrilled to see him up and about so soon. If he per­forms well in his Std X ex­ams, he can be placed in an af­ter­care home, where he can con­tinue his ed­u­ca­tion till he turns 21,” he said.
