Super 30 founder-director Anand Kumar said on Tuesday that Kunal has made it to the University of Tokyo for an international program.

“It is a big break for him,” Anand said.

For Kunal, son of a low-wage earner, it is a dream come true.

Till four years ago, he was struggling even to get a proper education. His father had no job, and he gave home tuitions to make a living.

Kunal, who is on cloud nine, said his life changed after getting into Super 30. He got into IIT, Guwahati after clearing the JEE.

“Had I not reached Super 30, such opportunities would have remained elusive for a small town boy like me. I would not have been able to move out. It was a turning point. Today, I am going to Tokyo with full scholarship,” he added.

Anand Kumar, who had been invited by the University of Tokyo in Japan for educational collaboration, was happy over Kunal’s achievement.

“This is good that Kunal Kumar has got the opportunity. International exposure in a technologically advanced nation like Japan will help him a lot,” Anand said.

“Tokyo University’s Yashino Haroshi had also come several times to Patna and discussed with me how more deserving students could benefit from the collaboration,” he added.

Anand Kumar said it was a matter of great satisfaction for him that students from the underprivileged sections were not only reaching IIT with the help of Super 30, but also getting an opportunity to study at globally acclaimed institutions.

“This proves what equal opportunity can do. The youth of the country have the talent to do wonders,” Anand said.

Earlier this year, another student of Super 30, Abhishek Gupta, was selected for studying in Tokyo after clearing JEE-mains.

Super 30 is known for providing free coaching and assistance to underprivileged students to help them get into prestigious IITs.

The institute selects 30 students every year from the underprivileged sections of society.

They are taught for around one year free of cost to clear the entrance test for IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology). In the past 13 years, 308 of the institute’s 360 students have cleared it.
