IN today’s era of increasing digital influence, it is becoming a rare occurrence to find people who are fond of books and literature in comparison to the old times. What would you say if a young man not only dreams of shaping his future in the world of books, but also fulfills it? One among such success stories is of the 22-year-old Mr Akash Gupta, a resident of Kharagpur, the railway town of West Bengal. Akash is working towards the realisation of his dreams.

Akash Gupta, who has completed his B.Tech from Jain University, Bangalore (and currently pursuing his MBA from Adarsh Institute of Management and Information Technology (AIMIT) Bangalore) says that, in order to establish himself, he had given interviews in many companies and firms. The count of which nears 28. But met with disappointment every time. He strongly believes that his destiny had altogether a different course of action. “During those difficult times, I realised that I need to do something to help those people whose dreams went unfulfilled due to various circumstances. Something which I am passionate about, and it shouldn’t necessarily be a job. My only aim was to spread joy by helping people by turning their dreams into reality”, says Akash.

Born in the house of Mr. Keshow Prasad Gupta and Mrs Nandini Gupta,residents of Kharagpur city, Akash Gupta founded an organisation called Fireboxx on 15th September 2019.

Mr. Keshow Prasad Gupta, a vegetable trader by profession, says that he and his wife are deeply proud and happy that their son has chosen this amazing career path.
