Pallu Gupta, how a School failure turned to be the Founder of Angry Youth NGO

The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%. ~ Andrew Carnegie, business magnate and philanthropist.

The above lines belongs to a Person we are going to discuss about here, who devoted his 100% in his passion of social work.

He is an example how a person even at his childhood can be an inspiration for others.

Inspiring story of him

At the age of 17 in 2011 he went to Cyber Cafe to check his Intermediate CBSE board exam result.

But surprisingly he got failed in mathematics. Being feared about Father’s angry reaction he refused to go home instead he went railway station directly from the cafe and spent the whole day there.

According to him he felt extremely suicidal till the noon, but then he started observing the worst life of homeless people living there.

Homeless children were hungry and fighting for the food. They did not have even clothes and conditions were so unhygienic. Most of the parents were handicapped and helpless.

Even there were people having maggots in their heads and wounds. All these terrific things made him realise that the real problem of life was not he was going through but was those people were going through.

This incident made him went back to his home and from the very next day he started helping them and working for their welfare at individual level.

Meanwhile, he read about Sahid Bhagat Singh and other revolutionaries which made him feel the need of a team. So, he Founded Bhagat Singh’s Ideology based NGO Angry Youth in 2012, in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. He is the Founder and the National President of Angry Youth.

Problems Faced

A lots of challenges have been faced by him during these last 10 years and one of them is to win the trust of the people to get involved in social services with Angry Youth as the Image of Social service based NGOs is not so good in the society. The other challenge was monetary arrangements for the NGO in starting phase.

The Vision of Angry Youth

The Vision of Angry Youth is that capable people want to help the needy but they do not have a Transparent, Practical and Honest medium to approach them.

The NGO is working as a Bridge between the capable and the needy so the capable one can reach to the needy one through us and can change his life.

Ideology behind the name Angry Youth

He named the NGO as Angry Youth because what he think is if one wants the positive change in the society then one has to have the Anger against the negative things exist in the society. Anger is always the first step of the change and the second may be Violence or Non-violence depends on the need of time like Mahatma Gandhi and Saheed Bhagat Singh.

In Today’s world the need of time is only Non violence and that is the path we adopted. This is how the NGO got it’s name ANGRY YOUTH and Slogan The Pacifism Leading by Anger.
