Anand Kumar's Super 30 initiative in Patna will soon open its doors to students from Karnataka. It will conduct a competitive examination for students of classes 10, 11 and 12 in a few months. Speaking to Deccan Herald on the sidelines of the mathematics workshop, Mathemagic, here on Saturday, he said, "At least three or four students from poor financial background will be selected for the programme based on their talent. The test will be held in a few months," he said. Besides, these three or four students, others who do well in the test will also be eligible for a number of prizes. These, however, may not be necessarily from the unprivileged background, he said. "Three students will be taken on a foreign education tour.

Winds of change 25.4.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Ageneration ago, the course of life for an urban Indian was set into half-dozen grooves from birth: engineer, doctor, accountant, lawyer. And, underlying all those options: a job. It was accepted that you worked all your life in one job, then retired and subsisted on your pension. Working in a job was the known, accepted, thing, That thinking, like the economic straitjackets of old, now belongs in the trash. Not only is it absolutely fine to choose a profession that was unthinkable a decade ago, it's becoming more and more common to become your own boss. To start up a business, in other words. There's a new feel in the air. Everywhere you look, there's a new company, a new logo, a new product that didn't exist just a moment ago. It's a cool thing to start a company doing what you really enjoy. It may be baking, or health food, or an errand service, or a hotel, but you no longer have to separate your hobby from your profession. Simply turn your hobby into your business and live your dream. All around us ...
