Anand Kumar is an educator and the founder of Super30, a program which coaches underprivileged students for IIT-JEE. In the last 15 years, he has coached 450 students, of which 396 made it to IITs.

He was internationally recognized, and the Discovery Channel even made a documentary on his work in 2009. He has also been featured in programs by BBC. In 2011, in a Bollywood film, 'Aarakshan', Amitabh Bacchan's character was inspired by Anand Kumar and his Super30. He also appeared on the popular quiz show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'.

Anand's biography- 'Super30: Anand Kumar', is written by Biju Mathew, a Canadian psychiatrist. In 2019, a biopic on Anand Kumar directed by Vikas Bahl, starring Hritik Roshan was released; the movie was a tremendous success.

The Journey to Super30

Anand comes from a modest background, his father was a post office clerk in Bihar. Following the demise of his father, Anand had to work to make ends meet. 

Anand started a small business from home, where he tutored students in maths to earn extra cash. In 1992, ​he rented a room for INR 500 a month and started his coaching centre, the Ramanujan School of Mathematics (RSM), where he taught mathematics to the students.

In 2002, an underprivileged student came to him who could not attend IIT entrance coaching due to poverty; this motivated Anand to start the Super30 program.
