I am most impressed with this great institution. Living in Delhi, I was ignorant of the good work being done here and the good things done in far away eastern India.

It is not an easy task to look after small children who come here from far fetched areas of the state. By looking after these children, Dr. Samanta has done the duty of a father, mother, doctor and, above all, God. Dr. Samanta has realised this dream of Dr. Ambedkar through KISS.

It is incredible to read Dr. Samanta’s - story of an ordinary man who grew up in poverty and today has become emancipator of lakhs of poor without any help from the Government.27

KISS is a great institution. I express my great sense of satisfaction and pride that I have been introduced to the Founder. I have already become his disciple. He looks such a simple creature, but is a divine creation and, I think, he is a bit of God himself.
Shri Ram JethmalaniHon’ble Member of Parliament (R.S.) and Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India
I am amazed to see such an educational complex developed by such a simple man in such a short span of time. Dr. Samanta is not just a simple man but a great revolutionary.

You have a bright example in Dr. A. Samanta. See for yourself his dedication, commitment and strong desire to make things happen against all adversities. He made it a mission in life to reach out to the unreached.

KISS has gained good reputation in the country. I pray for further progress and growth of Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS).
Shri Naveen Patnaik
Hon'ble Chief Minister of Odisha
KISS far exceeds what I had heard about it. Dr. Samanta has demonstrated that if one has passion to do something for the society, a lot can be done.
Shri M. Hamid Ansari

I wish Samanta's experiment is reflected throughout the country.
