Three Minutes To Memorize Intricate Physics Theory

Updates (06/22/2008): Anshuman has informed us that he has accepted TCS offer as it came with no pre conditions.

Came across this amazing story of how a hard working talented Indian boy from an economically stressed background got an admit into Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Anshuman Panda of Bankura scored a perfect 2400 in mathematics and physics to bag a scholarship to the best technology school in the world.

Anshuman’s father earns his living by giving private tuitions and there was a time not too long ago when they could not even afford to have electricity at their home as his dad could not pay the bills.

Some time back Anshuman saw an advertisement in the newspaper and thought of filling up the application. Since he knew application had to be filed online, he headed to a local cyber cafe. After a crash course in internet, he decided to apply at four universities – MIT, Harvard, Stanford and Caltech.

The rest, as they say, is history.

March 17, he goes to the internet cafe accompanied by his mother, to look for the results online. This is when he realized his dreams have come true. Actually the results were declared on March 16, but it being a Sunday, the cafe was closed. Thats why he came to know the next day.

Anshuman studies 10-12 hours every day and is extremely focused and sincere. According to his teachers, it takes Anshuman only a couple of minutes to wade through and understand complex physics theory.

This young man is already a celebrity in his town and journalists started pouring in from every corner to his modest two room rural house. But this has not affect the scholar much. According to him, he is used to all this media circus.

Needless to say, Anshuman’s school, the principal, his teachers who taught him maths and physics are extremely proud of what the student achieved and are basking in his glory.

Now that the time has come to go to US, Anshuman and his parents are in a fix as to how to fund the plane ticket. Anshuman says he has received sponsorship offers from TCS but he refused it because it came with strings attached. There are some more offers from ex MIT students and NRIs. According to Anshuman, if there are no pre-conditions, then he might consider them.

Anshuman is a professed atheist but having read Stephen Hawking, he worships his idol like a god. After MIT, Anshuman wants to get into research in theoretical physics and dreams of formulating some grands theories of his own.

He has our best wishes riding on with him.

      It sure does warm the cockles of the heart.

    2. Tarun says:

      Good question Ankur. This was quoted in Rediff. Let me look for that article and get back to you on your site!

      Thanks for your comments BTW.

    3. Anshuman Panda says:

      Dear Ankur,
      Please visit http://www.collegeboard.com before leaving a comment on SAT. The distribution of 2400 (in my case)in SAT Subject Test is
      Math Level-1 : 800
      Math Level-2 : 800
      Physics: 800
      All the best. Don’t mind.

    4. Tarun says:

      Thanks for getting that cleared up Anshuman.

    5. Tarun says:

      I didn’t realize the comment was from that “Anshuman” whom I wrote about in the post!

      Anshuman, did the article do justice or would you like to have something corrected.

      Also, are you in MIT right now? Whats the experience like.

    6. Anshuman Panda says:

      To Ankur,
      As you already now, I had also applied to Harvard College. I needed to submit the result of 3 SAT Subject Tests (any 3) as per their admission requirements. I had not taken Biology in my +2 Curricula (I took Statistics) and hence there were only four options for me in SAT Subject Test- Math-1, Math-2, Physics, Chemistry. I was (and am) weak in Chemistry. Hence I decided to take the combination I have already mentioned.
      I had no intention to hurt you, if my comment has hurt you sorry for that.
      To Tarun,
      I will go to MIT in the 3rd week of August.
      Update Required:
      Dear Friends, you have dropped a wrong information. I had told that if there would be any condition I would not accept that sponsorship. The sponsorship of TCS had no condition and hence I accepted it.

      Best of luck to everyone.

    7. Tarun says:

      Anshuman, besides the test score, did you have to fill out other applications like essays, objectives, past experiences etc.? Did you have to go through any interviews?

      What would you like to tell other aspirants who are preparing to take the SAT examination.

    8. Anshuman Panda says:

      MIT admission needs interview. Yes there are some essays in some application form. Score of SAT Reasoning / ACT + Writing / TOEFL is also required.
      To aspirants,
      Don’t be disappointed, be confident, remain focused, try your best, depend on self study__ you will have a good probability to succeed.

    9. Debanjan Nag says:

      Dear Anshuman,

      Whatever time you have now, devote some good amount of time to improving your spoken English so that you are ready to start shining like a much-expected star from day one on US soil. Remember, when a guy is academically brilliant like you are and communicate well in English in USA, sky will be the limit for him. Also do whatever it takes to prepare for American way of living so that you have minimum hassle in adjusting and you are ready from day one.

      Feel free to let me know if I can be of any help.

      With my best wishes.

Provost Dr. Tom Burish stated in the release that “While Notre Dame would have preferred to maintain its independence, the financial realities of the world of college football made the decision a necessity.” He also said that “The longstanding tradition of the schools in the Big 10 conference best fit that of the Irish program”, according to reports.

    17. Just finished getting the warm season veggies transplanted and direct seeded early this week. The newly transplanted tomatoes and peppers seem to be doing well. We enjoyed our asparagus for about a month (delicious!), and now they’re free to grow tall and ferny. Carrots, parsnips, beets, chard, cilantro and peas look good, but still small. We’ve started harvesting lettuce, spinach, arugula and radishes. And today, saw the first two or three corn seedlings poking out of the ground! Exciting! The only thing that’s been a total loss so far is the broccoli. Direct seeded it early this spring (which usually works well), but something chowed down on the seedlings. Ended up tilling the poor things under on Monday, and seeded okra, lettuce and reseeded broccoli there. Better luck this time with the broccoli!

    18. Also, by working with the internet to acquire women’s style garments, individuals can make sure they are able to make the most of exceptional discounts.

    19. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
