Manav Rachna was proud to host Mr Anand Kumar, Founder of Super 30 as he visited the campus to engage in a fruitful interaction with Senior Dignitaries and MRIS Students
It was a day of dream fulfillment and fruitful interactions as Mr Anand Kumar, Founder of Super 30 and a legend in academic circles, visited the campus here today. At the Manav Rachna campus, Mr Anand Kumar met up with Dr Prashant Bhalla, President, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions and Dr Sanjay Srivastava, Managing Director, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions (MREI). He was deeply appreciative of the sprawling campus and the world class infrastructure facilities that is the hallmark of the Group. Mr Anand Kumar also undertook an extensive tour of the campus visiting the Innovation and Incubation lab, Radio Manav Rachna, Sukam Solar Energy Lab, Dr. O.P. Bhalla Central Library and Shooting Range and expressed great happiness over the Quality of Education that was being imparted to students at the Institution. Having mentored students under the Super 30 programme, which he started in Patna, Bihar, in 2002, and which coaches economically underprivileged students for IIT-JEE, Mr Anand Kumar understands the true value of education and what it can do to transform students’ lives. He is also a Mathemetician and columnist for various national and international mathematical journals and magazines and was invited by the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University to speak on his globally acclaimed effort to mentor students from the underprivileged sections for admission to IIT.
At Manav Rachna, he had a Rendezvous with Senior Professors and engaged in an interactive session with the Leaders of Tomorrow—more specifically, Grade XII scholars from Manav Rachna International School (MRIS) Sector 14, 46 and Charmwood.
Speaking to students aspiring for IIT JEE entrance examinations, Mr Anand Kumar said, “To crack IIT JEE, you should have a strong desire and thirst for knowledge. What would also work in your favour is your positive attitude and passion as you devote yourself wholeheartedly towards the accomplishment of your goals even though challenges may come and go. Do not ever lose out on your self confidence as your self belief will pave the way for your success story.” Mr Anand Kumar also told the students to respect and value their teachers and the need to bring in changes in the IITs so that the not-so-privileged students have better chances of education. His motivational words and down to earth simplicity won over the students.
Expressing utmost satisfaction over Mr Anand Kumar’s visit, Dr Prashant Bhalla, President, MREI, said, “It is our great privilege to have with us Mr Anand Kumar whose erudition and endeavour to give a positive direction to students’ lives is phenomenal. Educationists like him are rare, and his words of wisdom a great source of inspiration to our students for whom his enlightening presence is undoubtedly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
