Patna: The socio-economic deprivation did not come in the way of realizing his cherished dream as a bright youth from the Mahadalit communities Anand Kishore, a native Nawada district, did himself and his family proud by cracking the prestigious joint entrance test of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).
The son of a father engaged in tapping palm juice for
livelihood, the 18 year-old boy lived upto the expectation of
his guru Anand Kumar, the mathematics wizard and founder of
the prestigious coaching institute, `Super 30` to secure
1190th position in the joint entrance test for IIT this year.

Basking in the glory of his newly found achievement,
Kishore, who studied upto Class XII from a non-descript school
in Nawada district, passed on the credit of his success to the
Super 30 and its co-founder Kumar.
"I studies in a dedicated and disciplined manner on
the advice of Kumar Sir," he said.

My family members too stood like a rock by my side and
prayed for my success, Kishore, who belongs to the Pasi caste
of the larger social conglomerate called Mahadalit, said.
