The man in the picture is Anand Kumar, a brilliant mathematician from Patna, Bihar. For many, he is a role model but he gained inspiration from one of the greatest Indian mathematicians Ramanujan.
the person you are seeing in this picture is Anand kumar , A mathematician from Patna, Bihar, India. His papers on the Number Theory were published in the Mathematical Spectrum and The Mathematical Gazette and he soon got an admission in the Cambridge University.
However, after the death of his father, Kumar discontinued his studies at the University due to financial instability. He moved back home and started working as a tutor for students along with continuing his own study on mathematics.
He would commute to Varanasi every weekend to visit the Central Library, BHU. There, he rented a classroom for Rs 500 a month, and established the Ramanujam School of Mathematics (RSM).
Students grew in number exponentially each year and one fine day, a student from an economically backward class arrived at his doorstep. The student, who sought coaching for IIT-JEE, motivated him and thus, Kumar embarked upon the journey of the Super 30 program.
Ever since 2003, Kumar now holds a competitive test to select 30 students from economically backward sections from the nation whom he would train for the IIT-JEE. His mother would cook for the students as Kumar tutored them.
Out of the 270 students who have enrolled in the program, 236 have cracked the examination and the year 2010 marked the 100% clearance of the exam for the third year in a row.
Kumar’s works have been recognised worldwide and his program has also been listed amongst the Best of Asia in 2010 in the Time’s magazine.
