Earlier this year, another student of Super 30, Abhishek Gupta, was selected for education in Tokyo after clearing the JEE-Mains. Kunal Kumar's father is jobless.

"Till four years ago, I was struggling even for proper education, even though I had high dreams. It was sheer luck that I was routed to mathematician Anand Kumar's Super 30 through a friend of his and that changed my life," said an emotionally charged Kunal, who received a rousing reception at the Super 30 academy for being selected by the University of Tokyo.

Impressed with astounding performance of Super 30 of mathematician Anand Kumar, officials of the Tokyo University had visited the institution last year and offered free education to its selected students.

"It is good that Kunal Kumar has got the opportunity. International exposure in a technologically advanced nation like Japan will help him a lot," said Anand Kumar, who could not go to Cambridge in his youths due to poverty.

Founded in 2002 by Kumar, Super 30 has managed to send more than 300 students from extremely poor family to the IITs so far. Kumar and his Super 30 have won effusive praise within country and outside.
