He lives in a 300 sq.ft ramshacle home, but that did not limit his spirit from soaring to the top of the world. This son of a bicycle mechanic has scaled Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world. 

Yes. We are talking of Sadhanapalli Anand Kumar, that Class IX student from Khammam district who scaled the Everest.

The tallest peak in the world proved to be shorter for Anand's derring-do and rebelliousness. 

Imagine who are most proud of his achievements? No marks for guessing! His parents of course.

"It feels great! Till now, he was Son of Kondal Rao. Now, after this Himalayan feat, I am known as Anand's father," says an elated Anand Rao. Anand's mother is an anganwadi worker.
