Vidya Bharati alumni and Animal Activist from Bihar, Vikram Basu shares his story.


Veganism is a movement that is taking the world by storm in recent years. The acknowledgement by humans that every living on the world has equal rights to co exist on this planet has further strengthened this movement. Preventing the exploitation of animals is not the only reason for becoming vegan, but for many it remains the key factor in their decision to go and stay vegan.

Specifics aside, avoiding animal products is one of the most obvious ways an individual can take a stand against animal cruelty and exploitation. Turning vegan is not only ethical, but also beneficial for our planet as well.

Vikram Basu, an alumnus of Anandram Dhandhania SVM school, Bihar and an animal activist, is a staunch believer of this movement. Recently he gave a interview about his experiences, whose short excerpt has been given below:


Interviewer : Please tell us something about yourself.

Vikram :  I did my schooling from Anandram Dhandhania Saraswati Vidya Mandir and passed out in 2016. After that I did a Diploma degree in Tool and Die making from Delhi Institute of Tool Engineering.


Interviewer : Are you associated with any kind of social service?

Vikram : Yes, I have been an active animal activist from a very young age. Currently I am working towards spreading veganism in my city Bhagalpur, Bihar. I started the movement in Bhagalpur in August 2019.

Veganism is not just a diet or a passing fad for those who want to look ‘cool’ in social media. It is a social justice movement. The Vegan ideology rejects the notion that animals are mere objects or slaves, meant for human use.

The movement was created to give justice to animals and treat them respectfully. Vegans cannot be put under the same category as Vegetarians. Our movement is apolitical and does not have any religious motivation. We believe in nonviolence of thoughts, action and speech. We don't discriminate amongst people according to their gender, colour, sexual orientation, body shape, religion, language, ethnicity, caste, culture, etc.

We believe all of us are offspring of Mother Earth and we will go back to her after death. All animals have equal rights to live. We must not destroy their homes and lives, just for our convenience and greed. Let us please come together and learn to coexist and live with love and compassion in our heart. 



Interviewer : Did your school have any impact on your life ?

Vikram : My school has taught me several things such as compassion, respect, discipline and serving others. I feel these are important qualities that every child should be imbibed with.


Interviewer :  Would you like to share any message with the community?

Vikram : I would like to request Vidya Bharati to kindly give the alumni members a common platform and opportunity to connect with the next generation, so that together we can bring positive changes in our surroundings.

Vidya Bharati  Purv Chatra thanks Vikram Basu for sharing his thoughts with the alumni community.
