Super 30 dreams of Nobel prize winners

Patna: Listed by the Time magazine as ” best of Asia 2010″ for providing free coaching for young kids from humble backgrounds, the Super-30 coaching center in the northern Indian state of Bihar cracked again this week with all 30 students passing the toughest Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) to secure a place in the country’s premier Indian Institute of Technology ( IIT).

This was the third consecutive 100 percent success rate of the center which gives free coaching to poorest of the poor students to get through IIT. The center provides free coaching, food and stay to its students for a year in Patna, the capital of Bihar.

The mood in the coaching center was jubilant and triumphant after the results were announced on Wednesday. Students feasted themselves and distributed sweets to each other.

“I am feeling great and feel quite humbled with this hat-trick. At the same time, I’m motivated to do even more for the deserving children,” said 37-year-old Anand Kumar on the phone. Anand Kumar founded the coaching center for talented but poor students in 2002.

Chiranjeev Kumar, 17, who hails from a remote village of Samastipur District undertook one-year coaching at the center. He was ecstatic with this week’s result.

“This is the best day of my life. I have never experienced such a thing in my entire life. I worked very hard for it. I wanted to appear for IIT but it would not have been possible without Super-30 coaching,” said Chiranjeev on the phone.

Chiranjeev is the second person from his entire village to clear this prestigious test and his family members are very happy with his success.

Anup Kumar, 17, is another Super-30 student who comes from one of the most backward villages in Aurangabad district of the state. He owes his success to the coaching center and its founder Anand Kumar
