IANS  |  New Delhi 

President Pranab Mukherjee on Friday appreciated the social work done by Anand Kumar, an educationist from Bihar, saying it was "inspiring".

Kumar, who works for the underprivileged students, presented his biography to the President at the Rashtrapati Bhavan here.

The biography of Kumar, who is known for his Super 30 programme, was written by Canada-based psychiatrist Biju Mathew and released by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in Patna on Monday.

Super 30 is a programme under which Anand selects 30 students from the underprivileged sections of society and provides them free mentoring for IIT entrance exams.
