Dr. Deboraj Muchahary started his journey of life in a poor but beautiful family who reside in a small village named Koptupali. His family members are Baijanti Muchahary (mother), Dhumal Muchahary (father), Chameli Muchahary (aunt), Rashmi Muchahary (sister) and Amit Muchahary (brother).

S School and passed the 10th board exam in 2009 securing letter marks in Science and Bodo subjects. He completed higher secondary (science) from Bijni College in 2009 securing first division. Due to irregular family income often he had to drop the tuition classes. After 10+2 he had no idea which course to choose and there was nobody who could guide him. But one day his mother told him that she heard about an engineer. From that day he decided to become an engineer and remove the poverty from his family. He enrolled in B. Tech (Electronics and Communication Engineering) at Central Institute of Technology (CIT), Kokrajhar and completed the course in 2013. During his journey at CIT he had to face several problems both economically and facility wise. Due to low family income he got pocket money sufficient to pay hostel mess fee only. But his hostel life was beautiful and full of fun and joy. Even with minimal resources he managed to learn basic engineering subjects at CIT. He is thankful to all the CIT family for being supportive in the journey of life. He then joined National Institute of Technology (NIT) Arunachal Pradesh for M. Tech program in 2013.
