In this era where social causes and violence against the women is at its peak a Human Rights activist who is an unnoticed rising personality is working very hard to bring a full stop on this cause leaving behind all the obstacles which came on his way from the day one.

His Ideology of life

Kundan strongly believes that “Sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary. How? Simply by doing them with a bit of an extra determination and for the right cause”.

His story in his own words.

Let’s hear his story in his own words only to understand and to know him better.

“Since I was protesting against the bureaucracy and mafia that was taking over the education system, I was kidnapped. I was away, hidden and scared with those thugs for seven days. I wasn’t sure whether I would survive the ordeal or not, but somehow I managed to escape from their clutches after seven days, and even endured a gunshot on my leg while escaping”.

Early Days

This young social activist is an Engineer by his qualification, was born in Raxaul, a village in Champaran. He has acquired his degree in Information Technology from Dehradun Institute of Technology.

He is the youngest CEO and Founder of “Be In Humanity Foundation”, and “The Voice Raiser”.

Basic Motto of his life

The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because it’s the only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, and fantasies that last. People did well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, will go on and on. If you can change the way of how people think, the way they see themselves, the way they see the world, the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create and I want to be that reason. That’s my motto “creating an everlasting revolution of change”.

 How change can bring in society?

“Old ways won’t open new doors “: If everyone put forth a little effort towards making the world a better place, it would definitely worth it. Make a change and allow a change. Be in it to help people. Have and keep both moral and ethical standards. Use what works. Examine your own prejudices. Stand together.

Word of mouth (What is the social cause?)

The social cause of any project that we personally support is that it is our social responsibility to help our fellowmen. These projects could be anything that benefits various segments of the society. Social work is not only a job, it’s a mission.  Extremism can flourish only in an environment, where the basic governmental social responsibility for the welfare of the people is neglected. Political dictatorship and social hopelessness that creates the desperation that fuels religious extremism. I want to ride away every inch of the government and a common man to fight for what is right.

Improve your argument rather than raising the voice (What he is trying to achieve now?)

It’s a herculean effort, taking on a fight against injustices and violence committed against any individual especially women. I hope that my work encourages and motivates others. I hope I set strong examples for my fellow people who may have the same passion and zest to do well and leave an impact in the world. I want the world to be a better place for my people to live with equality and peace be it, man or woman.

When we can’t stop the waves, but can learn to surf

If you do anything unique, people will attack you for it. Self-motivation depends on having a thick skin, persisting in spite of criticism. But equally important is the ability to not let praise consume you, either. I believe somewhere, praise and criticism are just reflections of each other. In order to properly handle criticism, you also need to properly handle praise. If someone excessively flatters you for a minor success, you need to internalize it the same way you would internalize a scathing insult. I’m human like everyone else, so when I am insulted, I feel bad about that. When I’m praised, I feel happy. Those instincts won’t go away. But with time I have learned if people praise you, thank them and focus on your goal. If people criticize you, thank them and focus on your goal. Re-evaluate your actions and goal and don’t get distracted.
