“Dear Anand Sir, Thank you. My life will forever be different because of you. My father is a farmer in Jharkhand’s Hazaribag district. After school, I got to know of Super-30 and I entered your coaching institute through a very rigorous selection process. Anand Sir, you have been my biggest inspiration. See, my family could never have afforded the lakhs that students from better-off families pay at coaching institutes. By teaching me and taking care of my living expenses, you made me confident enough to pursue my dreams of entering an IIT.
I am lucky to have you, Anand Sir. I owe everything to you.”
Rahul Kumar aspires to take admission in mechanical engineering at IIT Kharagpur.
