The students and staff of Seth M.R. Jaipuria and Navsrijan (a parallel school run by Jaipuria for the underprivileged) welcomed mathematician and educationist Anand Kumar who is well known for his Super 30 program for IIT-JEE preparations and has recently made news with his Hritik Roshan starrer biopic which is set to release soon. Kumar interacted with students and teachers and talked about the value of education and the significant role of teachers in shaping futures, especially of those who are not privileged enough to get quality education.
He also took a math class in a senior section where he emphasized on the fact that good strategy, planned preparation and skilled team of teachers can achieve great results.
He encouraged students as well as the teachers to make valuable contributions in the field of education and help build a strong teaching community.
Kumar quit his job as a high paid teacher in a coaching institute for the rich to teach poor students who could not afford coaching or any educational help. His Super 30 program has been preparing poor but talented students to crack IIT-JEE exams since the year 2000.
