Master Aditya M R, a class XI student of the Indian School, Bahrain has come out in flying colours in the Indian National Mathematics Olympiad. He is one of the two from the Gulf and twenty eight students selected from over 6000 CBSE schools to be called for the second round of the Olympiad at Delhi, which will be to select the team to represent India in the International Mathematics Olympiad to be held later this year. The other student selected from the gulf is Ms Alisha Mendonsa from the Indian School, Al Ghubra, Muscat.

The credits for the result go not only to both the students for the effort they have put in, to the parents for grooming them but also to their teachers and the school community in facilitating and mentoring them over the years. Career Launcher pays tributes to all.

Lt. Col. (Retd.) K T Karmachandran, the principal of the Indian School, Bahrain said that it was a great honour for the student, for the school and for Bahrain. Acting chairman of the school Mr. A K Thomas congratulated Aditya on his achievement.

Aditya exclaimed that he was very happy to have been selected and was very excited at the possibility of representing the country internationally. He said that he was not pleased at the fact that he could not solve one of the questions as the Olympiad covered class XII syllabus also. It is very interesting to know that, Aditya who has been selected for the Math Olympiad is keen on doing Biotechnology where in he can strike a balance between two of his favourite subjects Mathematics and Biology.

It was a sheer serendipity that R. Sreenivasan, Director of Career launcher was in the principal's office on January 22, 2002, when Mr. K T Karmachandran, the principal received a call from Mr. Ashok Ganguly, chairman CBSE, Delhi asking to make arrangements to fly master Aditya to Delhi on the same day. He was asked to attend the special workshop on mathematics starting on January 23 in Delhi being organized for all the twenty-eight short-listed candidates, which came as a bolt from the blue.

Mr. Sreenivasan offered to host Aditya and his father Mr. Ravi Kumar at Delhi for their fortnight stay and also help Aditya in preparing for the final assault that is on Feb 03, 2002. They reached Delhi and attended the four day workshop and there-on Aditya has been counseled and groomed by Mr. Shivkumar, Director - Academics, of Career Launcher, who himself is an alumnus from IIT Madras and IIM Calcutta and a host of IITns and other professionals.

Career Launcher, being one of the top educational corporates in the country, which boasts of many alumni from IITs, IIMs, Engineering and Medical colleges, PhDs and ex-professors of many a prestigious institution, is very happy about the small contribution it has made towards a good cause and is very keen on lending its helping hand in all such endeavours.

Career Launcher wishes Master Aditya M R. the very best in the finals and hopes to see him represent the country in the International Math Olympiad this year.
