Dr. Samanta is a great humanitarian who loves people and deserves to give humanitarian award and I am expressing my gratitude in receiving the 10th KISS Humanitarian Award from him. For me, this prize is no less than the Nobel Prize. (more…)

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.

Shri Prakash Javadekar
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…)
KIIT is comparable to Nalanda, Taxilla and Vikramsila of past.
Prof. Sukhdeo Thorat
I am overwhelmed with the mission and activities of KISS. Dr. Samanta's initiative of empowering thousands of tribal children through this institute will definitely bring a positive change in this region.
Prof. V. R. Panchmukhi
These are most unique and exciting institutions. They make our vision of having inclusive growth a reality. Samanta should be honoured with the highest honours of the country and that of the United Nation for his works shown in KIIT and KISS.
Prof. Ved Prakash
Hon'ble Chairman of University Grants Commission (UGC)
When you go to KISS, you witness a University that stands for Humanity. When thousands of children are eating together, then you see the elements of humanism on the campus of this university. It requires commitment of the highest order. It requires passion - almost close to obsession. Only then you can think about such kind of qualitative change.
Professor Muhammad Yunus
KISS is a wonder. An institution like KISS is rare in the world. Impossible task has been achieved by Dr. Achyuta Samanta, the Founder of KISS. He has done something which not only changes the person, but the entire society, community and nation.
Shri Akhilesh Yadav
Hon'ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh
I had heard a lot about KISS, but after visiting the institute, I am astonished to see such a large number of students here. I have never seen such an institution anywhere in India.
Shri Anupam Kher
I am very happy watching you. What a magic, Prof. Samanta. I feel it's like special effects that I see many children, happy children. This reality looks like a dream. The platform that Prof. Samanta has given is praiseworthy. He has reached the exalted position as he has worked selflessly.
Shri Anurag Thakur
Hon’ble Chairman, Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT
KISS is the wonder of the World. Everybody dreams, but a few of them make it reality. Dr. Achyuta Samanta, Founder of KISS is one among few successful persons who make their dreams into reality. We all should learn from him.
Shri B. L. Joshi
Dr. Samanta is comparable to Martin Luther and KIIT & KISS are laboratories of education.
