Prof. Achyuta Samanta is a Mahatma to all of you. He is giving you the education as well as the bright future. Hailing from rural area, after going through a series of indescribable hurdles and after establishing KIIT, he thought of doing something for the tribal students of Odisha and finally the result is the establishment of KISS.

Achyuta Samanta’s dedication and commitment for transforming the children to become worth citizen of the mother land are laudable. His selfless efforts in establishing and running the largest residential tribal institute have been recognised as a model to eradicate poverty and hunger through education alone.
The way KISS is trying to change the lives of tribal people in a positive way by providing education is very important. Babasaheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar had always given importance on the kind of upliftment through education of tribal, Dalits and other backward classes.
Realisation of Prof. Achyuta Samanta’s vision and dream is as much a matter of happiness for me and the entire country as for him. In KIIT and KISS, I see new Taxila University and Nalanda University being developed. (more…)
Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu
I thank Prof. Samanta for creating two beautiful institutions like KIIT and KISS. He is educating 25,000 poor children. It is a great service to humanity; and service to humanity is service to God. May God bless him to do many more such work. (more…)
Dr. Samanta's concern for poor and underprivileged and his service to the tribals through KISS are examples for others.
