"Education Best Bet to Poverty": Super 30 Founder Anand Kumar at Cambridge

Anand Kumar, the founder of Super 30 said that education is the best bet to fight poverty and related issues. Education can help to eradicate discrimination and help to build an equal society on where the deserving people get awarded on the basis of merit. He spoke on this note on Tuesday in an education gathering held at the Cambridge University.

Anand said that this is an amazing experience to speak in the US-Asia summit organised by Cambridge University as a youngster, he aspired to study here but could not make it into for financial issues. He expressed that only because of his Education, he has stood there. He said that education is the only way to bring a silent revolution and has the potential to bring generational change.

Anand also told the gathering about the Movie which is made on his life struggles and how he helped students from an underprivileged background to crack into the IITs which is considered as the most prime technological institutes in India.

Anand Kumar has said that the difference between underprivileged and privileged is only a matter of opportunities. Many times, underprivileged students cannot excel in the national and international education landscapes because they are not given equal opportunity due to financial capabilities. He pointed out that some of his students who were previously identified as underprivileged are working with some top US-based engineering firms.

Anand said that Hrithik Roshan played his character in the film which shows his struggle and director Vikas Bahl took care of the most minute details to picturise the film.

Anand said that the state of Bihar from where he belongs once excelled in the field of education and the first universities of the ancient world were established there but over the course of time, it slipped down below the Index.
