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