THE TEARS trickling down the faces of Deepak’s family members convey the grief that struck them when Deepak fell down a lift well in Lucknow on Wednesday evening while preparing for the cultural programme to welcome the past luminaries of the King George Medical University.
Deepak’s father Brij Mohan Agarwal told HT that Deepak, a second year student at the KGMU, could not get through in his first attempt in the CPMT examination.
When his mother asked him to adopt the family profession, Deepak vehemently opposed the idea and took the challenge of second attempt at the CPMT and attained 23rd position in the State. During last year’s Agarsen Jayanti, he was honoured by Transport Minister Naresh Agarwal for achieving 23rd position in the CPMT and performing brilliantly in the first year of MBBS.
He used to study for more than 18 hours and his colleagues used to advise him to take care of his health as less sleep could harm his health.
Many of his colleagues from KGMC who were present at the time of his funeral at Gopal Ghat here yesterday, talked about Deepak as a humble person who had a mission to help the poor after his studies. He wanted to practice at Sitapur to help his fellow citizens in fighting out diseases. His brother who is a student of Engineering College, talked about his wisdom and capacity to tackle all odds at this early age.
His father appealed to the students and authorities of the KGMU to maintain peace on the college premises as this would be the best tribute to Deepak.
