Tale of a physically challenged girl

Physical and financial limitations stand in the way of achieving success in life. But it is not the case for Falguni Saha, a girl who lost both of her arms in an accident.


She is studying at Geography Department of Jahangirnagar University after securing brilliant results in the secondary and higher secondary exams.


Falguni, now in the fourth year of honours course, continues her study offsetting all the limitations. She wants to be a magistrate after the completion of the study to serve the people.


The poor girl lost her two arms in 2002 in an electricity accident. She suffered burn injuries up to the elbow of both the arms. Her arms were later amputated.


Falguni obtained GPA-5 in the Secondary School Certificate exams in 2011. Media published news items highlighting her brilliant results. Her insolvent father, Jagadish Chandra Saha, was uncertain about her admission in eleventh grade due to financial hardship.


There are generous people in the society. The principal of Trust College in Dhaka, Basir Uddin Ahmed, saw the parents of the girl knowing about her. He enrolled Falguni in his institution with full scholarship. The college authorities even provide her with a domestic help. She again obtained GPA-5 in Higher Secondary Certificate exams too, in 2013.


Highly confident of her abilities, Falguni now wants to become a magistrate.


Authorities of the college said they always stand by talented boys and girls since its inception and want to continue the endeavour.
