Class 12 student Sparsh Tamta fractured his right hand a day before the CBSE exams, but did not lose his confidence. He came out from the exam hall smiling. “I considered myself little unlucky as I was not able to write my own paper. But I’m thankful to Amisha Srivastava of Class 11 who volunteered to do so. She did a fantastic job as a writer. Full marks to her,” said Sparsh, a student of Central Academy.
