The city has a reason to be proud of 16-year-old Anshul Gupta, a class 10 student who bagged a top grade in a summer programme of Harvard University, USA.

Anshul, a student of The Sri Ram School, Aravali, has returned here after attending the eight-week-long programme of physics.

"I never went there to top in any examination. I was there to gain knowledge and may be this is the secret of my success," said Anshul, who got an opportunity to compete with students of top universities of the world.

"I was awarded 'A' grade, the highest grade which was awarded to any student," he said. There were more than 80 students in the programme from leading institutes such as MIT and University Of California.

"No doubt the methodology they use to impart education is par excellence," he said.

"When I was awarded the top grade, people were surprised as it was difficult for them to believe that a high school student could give competition to graduates and post-graduates of best colleges and universities of the world," he said.

Anshul also topped in the city scoring 97% marks in class 10 ICSE examinations this year. This aspiring engineer loves all outdoor games.
