Neel Aryan Gupta, AIR-10

Neel Aryan Gupta, Chandigarh boy, got All-India Rank (AIR) 10. He was diagnosed with a serious health ailment in the middle of his CBSE Class 12 board examination and preparation for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). He could not even sit properly due to the pain from the ailment, but surgery was not an option before sitting his mathematics, physical education and JEE Main papers. The pain will be too much to handle, doctors told him. “So, I decided to take these three tests and then undergo surgery. My father, a property dealer, was able to take care of me as my mother was working the whole day and my teachers sent me revision papers that I solved lying down on the bed,” he said, adding that he got AIR 182 in the JEE Main.
