Howrah: Where there is a will, there is a
way -- this adage was proved right once again today by a 16-
year-old girl handicap girl here.

Subhadro Bhowmick, a student of PNS High School in
Bagnan area, wrote her class X board exams using her feet in
Howrah district, school headmaster Sanjit Sengupta said.

"Special arrangements have been made for her during
the exams. Her writing speed is comparable to other students,"
Sengupta said.

About 9,47,495 students are appearing for the
Madhyamik examination which began today.

A resident of Sreerampur village in Ulberia area,
Subhadro was born without her left hand while the right one
had a defect, making her depend on her feet to write.
