A Japanese TV channel is in Patna to make a documentary on how students from the underprivileged sections of the society aspire to be at the IITs under the guidance of mathematician Anand Kumar and his Super 30 team.
Masaki Hojo of Tokyo TV has said, “We want to focus on the economic condition in eastern India and how students from poor families strive for success using education as a tool. Super 30 is a place which helps them realise their dreams, with so many students reaching IITs and now also to Japan.”
Two former students of the Super 30 are now studying in Tokyo University.
