Chhindwara (MP), Mar 4: A mishap took away Saifi's both hands but not his zest to go ahead in life as he decided to write his 10th board exams today with his feet.
Saifi, who lost his hands six years ago after he accidentally came in contact with a 1100 KV high voltage electric line while playing on the terrace of his house here, appeared for his exams at Penchvalley Excellence School centre.
At the time of accident, Saifi was studying in fourth class. With his grit and determination he developed skills to write with his feet, Aaradhna Convent School's Principal Madhu Rai said.
Saifi belongs to a middle-class family and his father owns a shoe shop in the town. The young boy is also a good player of carom and football and took part in the district level football tournament, she said.
In future, Saifi wants to do a government job and lead a self-sufficient life on his own terms.
