The trailer of Super30 out today and peoples liking this very much. Hrithik Roshan looking very strong in the movie and we are expecting and strong come back from him.
The movie based on the real incident and the man who was behind Super3 is Anand Kumar. So let’s know some more about this man and about his history.
If Super 30 has become an architect for the budding poor talents, it is not without a reason. Fascinated by mathematics since early childhood, Anand always dreamt of becoming a mathematician. He started showing sparks of brilliance since the y days. His love for mathematics came to fore in 1992, when he formed a Mathematics Club, ‘Ramanujam School of Mathematics’, while he was still in graduation. His mathematical bent of mind was spotted by renowned teachers, who provided him withdrawment. Under the guidance of his mentor and guru, Devi Prasad Verma, then the Head, Department of Mathematics, Patna Science College, Anand started a training program for mathematics lovers. It was a free program, which anybody with interest in Mathematics could join. As months rolled by, Anand contributed several problems and papers on Mathematics to various national and international journals, magazines and newspapers.
In 1994, Anand got an opportunity to pursue higher education at Cambridge University, but his poor financial health came in the way. Having witnessed extreme financial hardship since childhood, he felt the pangs of poverty so much that he decided to do something for the poor students, who invariably fade away without getting the t opportunities. This led to the birth of the form of ‘Ramanujam School of Mathematics’.
Here he trained a small group of students for various competitive examinations at a very nominal fee. For those who were extremely poor and were in no position to pay even the small amount, money was never a constraint. They just did not have to pay anything.
After some time, Anand decided to shape his program seriously to cater to the poor, but meritorious students more significantly. He called his brother Pranav Kumar, a talented violinist, from Mumbai and planned to start the innovative Super 30 program. Pranav Kumar helped Anand earlier also, but now he was directly involved. He was entrusted with the responsibility of managing Super 30. After a thorough screening, 30 poor, but talented students were shortlisted for the Super 30. Initially, making all arrangements for 30 students, as not so easy, but Anand’s family extended all help in his endeavor. Anand generated finances by tutoring students of other schools, while his mother, Jayanti Devi, cooked food for the students. For the students, there was only one goal – to study hard. hat followed next was rigorous training of the students, and the results came as a big surprise in the very first year. It motivated Anand for put in more and more effort along with his team of dedicated teachers.
In the last eight years, 212 students out of 240 have made to different IITs of the country. In 2003, when Super 30 started its journey, 18 out of 30 students competed. The very next year, the number jumped to 22. In 2005, it improved further to 26. Continuing the trend, 28 students made it in 2006 and 2007. However, the ‘magic moment’ came in 2008, when the result was an astonishing 30 out of 30. Super 30 had hit the bull’s eye. It was ‘a dream come true’ for Anand and his team. Super 30 has done it again in 2009 and 2010. It has been 30 out of 30 for the second year in succession. It was the result of the created effort of a committed group of teachers, led by
Anand. A senior police officer, Abhyanand, who is now involved with other social activities, also played his part in motivating the students by finding some time off his busy schedule. The role of a group of old students of Super 30 was also vital. Amit Kumar and Praveen Kumar contributed to running regular classes for various subjects.
