CBSE Class 10 Result 2019: Vinayak Sreedhar, scored nearly 100 in the three subjects he appeared for during the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) 2019 examination. The CBSE class 10 results were released on Monday. Vinayak passed away in March before he could complete the remaining two examinations.
Vinayak was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when he was a two year old. He scored a perfect 100 in English, 96 in Science and 97 in Sanskrit but could not appear for the Computer Science and Social Studies examinations. A fan of Stephen Hawking, apart from topping the class 10 board examination, becoming an astronaut and a trip to Rameshwaram were among a few of his unfulfilled wishes.
A student from Amity International School, Noida, Vinayak appeared for the class 10 CBSE examination under the general category and not in the Children with Special Need category.
Talking to the media, his mother Mamta Sreedhar said, “His muscular movement was very limited. He could write slowly but since there is time duration for exams he used a scribe for his English and Science Examination. However, for Sanskrit, he insisted to write himself". She further went on to say that his body movement was restricted and he was bound to a wheelchair but he has a sharp mind and high aspirations.
She recalls, “He would always say that he wants to become an astronaut despite all the challenges and would say if Stephen Hawking could go to Oxford and make a name ion Cosmology I can go to space too.” Vinayak was confident that he will be among the top rankers for CBSE . “We were always amazed by his confidence and would encourage him further”, she added.
Sreedhar had plans to visit Rameshwaram temple near Kanyakumari after his exams. The family who is in Rameshwaram right now said that they are going to fulfill his wish.
It must be noted that it is not only Vinayak in the family makes his parents proud. His sister is an alumnus from Indian Institute of Science (IISc) who is currently pursuing her Ph.D. at the University of British Columbia on a fellowship. Vinayak’s father is the Vice President in GMR while his mother is a homemaker.
