Patna: Super 30, Bihar's free coaching centre which helps economically backward students crack the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology-Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE), has been given an extensive write-up in a leading Canadian newspaper

The article and photo-feature in the Toronto-based The Globe and Mail has lauded Super 30 school, run by Anand Kumar, for doing a "great job for the poor sections of the society".

Anand Kumar has been described him as a "fanatical hero", who has been trying with tremendous zeal to take the talented students from the lower strata of the society to the top.

Earlier, Time magazine had described the school as the 'best in Asia', while the magazine Newsweek put it in the list of world's four most innovative initiatives.

"This recognition has only added to my responsibility and passion to do more. The main credit for the success should go the talented bunch of students, who put in a lot of effort to change their destiny. Super 30 is just a small example to show how much talent India has, which needs to be tapped. I have a dream that no student in the world should be deprived of opportunity to study," Anand said Sunday.

He had set up Super 30 to prepare 30 students for the IIT-JEE in 2002, providing free boarding lodging and coaching to the selected aspirants. In the last nine years, 236 students from Super 30 have made it to the IIT-JEE. This brought it into focus, with Discovery Channel, Al Jazeera and Japan's NHK channel making films and documentaries on Super 30.
