From a young age, Tanuj was moved by the plight of underprivileged people in his community. Now, he is an Indian artist and peace advocate. Tanuj aims to spread awareness about various issues through art. He has donated many pieces of artwork to raise funds for social causes such as environmental protection, social justice, global warming and the refugee crisis. Aside from his art, Tanuj empowers young people in his community through organising speeches and discussions on various topics related to youth activism. He also writes blog posts about social causes. As a result of his efforts, he was granted the status of ‘International Ambassador of Peace’ by the World Literary Forum for Peace and Human Rights.  In the future, Tanuj hopes to continue his work for children’s rights on a much larger scale.
