VictoryTales with its objective to strive and grope vigorously to bring most of the meaningful and powerful inspirational stories from around the world to empower and motivate our growing community, this time we are introducing Mr Pulkit Kumar, Founder of the UofA Cancer Society. Pulkit Kumar (known as Pulkit), is an Indian-born Canadian scientist from Alberta, Canada. He is also known for his discoveries in the field of medicine and technology. He aims to provide more effective treatments for the future, which challenges current treatments in all aspects. He also aims for net-zero carbon emission and plans on creating clean and renewable energy resources, which will decrease the net carbon emission and will keep the average earth temperature in the ideal range.

Pulkit published a paper in May 2020, while touched upon the future of anti-depressants. The paper proposed an alternative treatment for a potential add-on, which in the previous studies was proven to be almost at the same level as the current treatments, with almost zero side effects, even when taken for a period of 7–10 years. This got a lot of attention since the proposed treatment costed almost nothing when compared to the billion-dollar medicinal industries. Later, in October 2020, Pulkit published another paper that proposes the idea of using plant-based compounds for the treatment of cancer. Though he faced lots of challenges with this (since very little research has been done in this field), he took it upon himself to solidify his claims and to encourage more research in this direction.

His study, also published on Research Gate, a well-respected platform used by scientists to host their findings, is one of the most widely read with more than 1,000,000 views to date. In his popular paper Pulkit methodically breaks down the scientific findings surrounding the use of Ocimum sanctum (OS), a popular cancer treatment in Ayurvedic medicine.
