Rare disease

  • Rishu suffers from a rare genetic disorder known as osteogenesis imperfecta

  • He appeared for exam with one eye bandaged

  • Rishu says he is preparing for the Common Entrance Test for a five-year degree in law

"He suffered fractures eight or nine times a year when he was younger," said Lal Chand, Rishu's father.

Rishu has had this problem since his childhood and was denied admission by many schools which refused to take responsibility of a student with a rare genetic disorder of bones breaking at a mild push.

As a child, he studied at SDAV Model Cosmic School, Bassi Pathana (Fatehgarh Sahib district). The then school principal gave a certificate, "His fragile structure may stir up feelings of sympathy....but nine-year-old Rishu is facing life in the bravest manner possible. Despite his frail bones, he gives strength to all".

Rishu's father is mathematics teacher and his mother Kusum Lata teaches social studies. Both are posted in Government Senior Secondary School, Mustafaba (Fatehgarh Sahib).

When asked what he planned to do in future, Rishu said, "I am preparing for the Common Entrance Test for a five-year degree in law."
