Vinayak was a student of Amity International School in Noida and he had passed away in the middle of his CBSE class 10 exams. He could appear for only three exams and has scored exceedingly well in all three of them.

A student of Amity International School, Vinayak, had passed away during his CBSE class 10th board exams this year. The incident stirred again when the results of class 10th were declared. Vinayak’s mother, Mamatha Sridhar, received messages that spoke about the “stellar score” of her son.

Vinayak had given three exams before he passed away. He scored 100 marks in English, 97 marks in Home Science, and 96 marks in Sanskrit. His mother said that he would have scored equally well in the remaining two exams as well if he had a chance to sit for them.

Vinayak suffered from muscular dystrophy which was the reason for his death. His parents said that he made them proud till the last moments. Vinayak’s mother expressed how her son would have been ecstatic at his result and that he would have been the one giving the interview.

At the age of two Vinayak was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, after he had trouble sitting or standing without support. He was wheelchair bound by the time he was seven, and by the age of thirteen, his parents had to feed him. Mamatha told that his classmates were very helpful and did things like opening his tiffin box, pouring water in the cap of the bottle, etc. His classmates called and told his family about the result he got.

Vinayak was drawn towards Sanskrit and spoke to his teacher in the Sanskrit language often. He was a good quizzer and loved history and mythology. He was quite excited about his social studies exam.
