Anshu Gupta is the founder of Goonj, an organisation, that works on providing clothes and other necessities to those in need. He started Goonj, when he saw someone pick unclaimed bodies by roaming around in Delhi with his wife sitting on his handcart. He followed them, talked to them and realised that the family does not have proper clothes to wear, and how their daughter hugs the corpses and sleeps at winter nights so that she feels warm. This touched him badly and he came up with the organisation. He believes that not everyone has the art of giving. He even recycles clothes as well and wants people to give as much as possible, even if it is not enough but good and worthy. He expects people to not only support but take initiatives, and help. He also opposed how some people do it for publicity or attention which is selfish. He lead kindness by caring about people and giving them clothes to wear, we all should take inspiration from him and lead kindness.
