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 early 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
encouragement. Under the guidance of his mentor and guru, Devi Prasad
Verma, then the Head, Department of Mathematics, Patna Science
College, Anand started a training programme for mathematics lovers. It
was a free programme, 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 in
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 right opportunities.
This led to the birth of new 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 programme 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 programme.
