He also uses his skills to represent disadvantaged parties and stand up for just causes.
He says, “Our world is structured in a way that at every point in time, there are people who will need our help and support. With the grace of god, I’ve experienced and received the kindness
of many people and I hope I’ve been able to pay that kindness forward. I’m grateful that because of my profession I have enough resources and a position that can be put to good use. I think being charitable is a fundamental value because at the end of the day - all of us are humans. You might be in need of help some time, and at times you’ll be the one who has the power to be helpful.”.
If everyone thought this way, the world would be a much better place! But not everyone has the same personality and caliber as Vikrant Rana.

We reached out to Vikrant Rana so we could get a peek inside a genius’s mind; he wrote back to us, saying, “I’ve been fortunate enough to have a supportive family, a comfortable life and access to the best educational resources. Of Course I have to work very hard, deal with problems and stay on top of everything- but I am grateful for all that I have and all that I have achieved. My goal is to help others out - everyone will have pain and problems but if you have the power to help someone out and relieve them, you should do it. At Least I know I will.”.
