The chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra shared his photo with Indian educationalist and a mathematician from Bihar Anand Kumar on his Twitter account on Saturday. He made a surprising revelation about the maths teacher in his post.
Reacting to Kumar’s article in which he claimed that he turned down a donation offer made by him, Mahindra tweeted, “Anand Kumar says in the article that he turned down my offer to fund his efforts. I confirm that when we met, he courteously declined my offer of financial support. I remain an admirer of how he’s changed the lives of so many.”

This Friday released film Super 30 Vikas Bahl starring Hrithik Roshan, Pankaj Tripathi, and Mrunal Thakur is based on the life of Anand Kumar. The film is receiving positive reviews from the audience and the critics.
Kumar says that he does not take any grant or donation from anyone. Indian Prime Minister, corporators, business tycoons like Mukesh Ambani or Anand Mahindra have offered donation but he hasn’t accepted anything. He meets everyone but does not take money from anyone. He says that he only wants to do good work in the field of education.
Anand Kumar is a well-known name in the field of education, especially in North India. He is hailed for his Super 30 program in which he selects 30 super-intelligent but financially backward students and teaches them focussing on IIT entrance. Out of 480 students, he has taught so far, 422 have cracked IIT.
