Without any financial donor and State funding, this institution is alive and really creating a world that we all love to see. A just, peaceful, human and caring institution, contributing to build a world of peace and harmony.

Ms. Ertharin Cousin
Executive Director, World Food Programme.

You are the future of India as well as the world. Dr. Samanta has given you a tremendous platform to dream. KISS is the right platform to fulfil your dreams.

Ms. Lakshmi Puri

KISS is really exemplary for all of us and UN Women will work with such an exemplary institution. It’s a great work done by Dr. Achyuta Samanta. I am confident that, you will be the change agent to transform the world into a peace and prosperous world without caste, creed, colour and gender inequality.

Ms. Martine Reicherts, Director-General of the European Commission for Education and Culture

I had heard about KISS earlier. You are the future of not only India; you are the future of the world. You can change the world as the whole planet is now in your hands.

Ms. Nisha Desai Biswal
Asst Secretary of State, South & Central Asian Affairs, U.S. Dept of State

I have been to many countries in my career and met many young children, but I have not seen a place like KISS. KISS is so special because it was started as a result of a simple dream of a humble man to try to expand opportunities and education. I am humbled by Dr. Samanta’s vision, ambition and commitment.

Ms. Shobhaa De

Visiting KIIT and KISS has been an inspiring and exhilarating experience. As an Indian, I am intensely proud of the enormous achievements at KISS.

Achyuta Samanta the Creator of KIIT Universe is an extra ordinary person, having God gifted powers to serve the humanity at large & poor in particular.

Why not replicate KISS elsewhere, ignoring the problem of an inability to clone Achyuta Samanta?
