Not even cancer could stop him from scoring 95% in class XII board exams
In this strange world that we live in, life can sometimes surprise you immensely. Though rarely, but at times we do come across such purposeful individuals who have the ability to fight life's toughest battles against all odds with sheer courage and resilience, and emerge as winners in the end.

One such story is of 19-year-old Ranchi-based boy Tushar Rishi, who refused to give up hope even after finding out that he was suffering from cancer.

Rishi managed to score 95 per cent marks in his class XII board exams, the results of which were declared on Sunday.

Just after finishing his calls X mock exams, Rishi had been diagnosed with knee cancer. After undergoing chemotherapy, Tushar appeared for his class X board exams, scoring a perfect 10 CGPA.

Although he has to visit the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) every three months for checkup, it could not stop him from scoring 95 per cent marks in the class 12th board exams, and that too, without any additional coaching.

According to a report in Hindustan Times, Rishi secured 95 marks in English, 95 in physics, 93 in mathematics, 89 in computer and 100 in fine arts. However, unlike other science students, Rishi aspires to pursue graduation in either English or economics from the Delhi University, reported HT.

Apart from being a brilliant student, Rishi has also chronicled his battle with cancer in a book titled, "The Patient Patient".

Ritu Agarwal, his mother, whose a professor at the Birla Institute of Technology, while talking to HT said, "I have seen him battle cancer and I know how difficult it is for him. I hope he stays healthy and achieves all his career goals."

"I am in a much better condition now after all the treatments. But I have to visit AIIMS in every three to four months for checkups and updates on my health," says Rishi, who strongly believes that regular study is the key to his success.

It is stories like these that inspire us and make us gather ourselves once again to face all the hardships that life has to throw at us, but, with a big smile. Not to forget, it ain't over till it's all over!
