Anshuman Panda, from a remote village in West Bengal, is headed to MIT, after cracking a perfect SAT score. Nice to hear, also, that the West Bengal government has taken upon itself to fund his travel and initial expenses once he is here. That’s one use of tax-payers’ money that no one will begrudge, I am sure.
Anshuman is also receiving well needed advice from an MIT alumnus, WB Finance Minister Asim Dasgupta. There’s one bit that I loved the most. Says Dr Dasgupta, ‘Don’t take more than four courses at a time!!’. Yes, very important advice, that!
On a related note, check this post. More than the post itself, check out the comments section, which has been graced by the man of the moment himself.
Best of Luck, Anshuman.
