His dad Mukesh told MailOnline: “It’s a miracle. He looks great. His neck is straight; and his life is so very different.

“He’s in a good place. It was heart breaking to see him before. We were on the brink of losing him.

“When his neck was bent he was too shy to speak but now he feels like a normal person and we can see his confidence levels growing. He is very happy now.”
