“With the students basking in glory after their success in JEE-Advance for admission in IIT and sweets being distributed, my family members got down to his usual cooking for the students to prepare something special for the day to leave a lasting flavour. After all, such occasions come, only once a year and the flavour of the day has no match”, writes Anand Kumar, founder Super 30, on his Facebook page.

It is noteworthy that the super 30 is a highly ambitious and innovative educational program running under the banner of ‘Ramanujan School of Mathematics’. It hunts for 30 meritorious talents from among the economically backward sections of the society and shapes them for India’s most prestigious institution – the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). In the last seven years, it has produced hundreds IITians from extremely poor background.
Experiencing acute poverty in his student days, which prevented him from going to Cambridge University for higher education, Anand Kumar made his life a mission to help wards of humble background of his Super 30 realise their dreams.
During this program students are provided absolutely free coaching, lodging and food. Super 30 targets students from extremely poor families. They have all seen the change with sheer disbelief in their eyes that their children are now going to be top technocrats.
