Abishek Pant, a student of Computer Science programme at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur has broken all placement records on receiving a job offer of Rs 2 crore per annum from Google, say newspaper reports.
The 22 year old boy who hails from Pune had to go through several interview rounds before making it to the design solutions cell at Google. Pant will be joining the organisation in September, 2016. The final year student had interned with Google, California for a period of three months, earlier this year.
Born and brought up in US, the CBSE Class 10 topper was brought to India in the year 2006 when his family decided to shift to Pune. Initially, his family seemed quite worried about him adapting to the Indian education system. But the boy who was studying in Delhi Public School, responded well and obtained 97.6 per cent in his Class 10 Board Exams.
Abhishek has also surpassed Chetan Kakkar, who was offered a package of Rs 1.27 crore per annum from Google. Chetan, a final year student of DTU's Information Technology department will be joining Google, California with a remuneration of Rs 1,25,74,200 ($1,90,000) after the completion of his programme in the year 2016.

But also for our parents and students, a tip of advise that we would like to give is: "Everybody is a Genius. But If You Judge a Fish by Its Ability to Climb a Tree, It Will Live Its Whole Life Believing that It is Stupid".
