Born in a small town of Pilibhit, Uttar Pradesh, the journey of Mudit Pathak is a tale that will inspire many people and prove that age is no bar when it comes to making a difference.
An alumni of Little Angels School, Mudit comes from humble beginnings. His father, Jitendra Kumar Pathak, manages a school canteen while his mother, Geeta Pathak is a teacher by profession.
“From the very beginning, I was inspired by my grandfather to do something different in life,” Mudit explains his drive to create a unique path of his own.
Exploring different domains
Mudit is currently in the third year of his college life at Shaheed Bhagat Singh Evening College, Delhi University. But his desire to go off the beaten track enabled him to explore different domains right from the first year in college.
In his first year, he pursued two internships, under UIDAI and GAIL, which directly report to the government of India. This provided him with a lot learning opportunities. The experience also encouraged him to explore even further.
In the second year, he set up his own companies and communities to focus on multiple issues.
The event management company Plan_It_4U, was set up primarily to allow school and college going students to understand the nuances of working in a corporate environment, develop relevant skills and become financially literate at a young age. ‘We are fortunate enough to have worked with big stars such as Nasiruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapoor, Geeta Dutta etc,’ adds Mudit.
Mudit has also established Artistic_By_Nature. According to him, it is India’s first and biggest platform/community to support, appreciate, promote, motivate, and inspire artists. ‘With this organization, we have hosted 1000+ events nationally & internationally with the sole purpose of helping artists. We also organized India’s largest talent hunt event during this lockdown’, says Mudit Pathak.
Mudit’s next venture TheYogi_Gang is a youth empowering community to help youth to understand the practical aspects of life. ‘We give seminars, sessions and workshops in different schools & colleges to spread real life knowledge and to give the youth a practical mindset.’ adds Mudit
Even at such a young age, Mudit’s list of achievements is long indeed. The best one?

His long list of awards include the ‘STAR 2020’ recognized by World Book of Records, UK. He had also been recognized as the Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
