Padma Award for Anand Kumar for selflessly teaching under-previleged students

Mr. Anand Kumar through his coaching institute Super-30 has for more than a decade helped scores of under-previleged students get admission to IIT's and other top colleges. He has given these kids a flying start by coaching them to prepare for competitive exam like the IIT-JEE. Without such help it would have been difficult for these kids to get such avenues to get a jump start in their careers.

It is a pity that while undeserving movie actors get the Padma awards such a selfless teacher hasn't yet been recognised for his noble efforts.

Please sign this petition to our Government's HRD Minister to nominate Mr. Anand Kumar for a Padma award for year 2015-16. Also please forward this to others so that they spread this message and garner support for this cause!

Let us remember to honour such heroes among us - in these cynical times where wrongdoers and shallow glamour steals the limelight of public attention! India needs some real heroes like Mr. Anand to be recognised so that more are inspired to undertake such causes! Do your bit by signing this petition.
