Fateh Singh Whig

His disability could not deter his spirit to stand tall on the day of his Class-12 CBSE results on Monday.

Fateh Mohit Whig, a student of Vivek High School, Chandigarh, has scored a 93.4% marks in the humanities stream despite facing odds in life over the years.

Fateh has a congenital spinal disorder, a shunt in the brain, a heart deformity and no bladder or bowel control as he has no sensation below the waist. He is son of a gallant army officer, Major Mohit Whig, who gave away his life fighting for the nation in Jammu and Kashmir in 1997. He has been brought up by his mother Tina Whig.

“He’s a fighter. His determination and tremendous will power has set an example for the others as well. He has been studying in the school since Class 1 and it is the fighter in him which has helped him achieve this stupendous feat. We are proud of him,” said a school staffer.

Giving credit to the school, her mother said: “I am thankful to the school staff for being so nice and cooperative to my child. They left no stone unturned to make things easier for Fateh. It is emotional day for me and I cannot express my happiness in words,” said Fateh’s mother.

Fateh is also elated over his feet. He says he wants to become a lawyer.
