Get your professor or teacher, who is writing your recommendation, to mention this. It will sound sulky unfortunately if you write it. But coming from your teachers, who can put a positive spin on it ala look how well he's doing despite all the shyt he had to go through, will actually add to your strengths. After all, your achievements are even more impressive if you've suffered for them
Btw, GPA of 9 at IIT? That's insane! and probably unsustainable
No worries though 7 is still I think pretty good. Good Luck!
