He used to participate in various extracurricular activities while was in high school. He was interested in music, but due to the pressure of studies, he focused on his academics and continued his studies in the field of health sciences. Instead of quitting his passion for music, he continued it as a hobby. In 2017, he joined a university to pursue his further studies, but in 2018, he was diagnosed with clinical depression and it took almost one year for him to recover from it completely. In an interview, he talked about it, he said,
It was so bad that I had no idea whether it was day or night outside, or what date it is or even sometimes what month it is……I was lucky enough that I didn’t have to take any antidepressants or any other pills”
While he was going through this condition, he realised how people deal with it and how they are suffering from the side effects of the antidepressants or the mood stabilizer pills. Later, Pulkit and one of his friends Dhaniket discovered a potential/add-on antidepressant for cancer, which was available at a very low price with little to no side effects even if the patient takes it for 7-10 years. He started an organisation focused on spreading awareness about cancer named ‘The UofA Cancer Society’ in early 2020. The organization encourages new ideas which may be helpful to cure cancer. Pulkit published a research paper on a potential cancer cure in October 2020 in which he proposed all the major components needed to cure the cancer, but he could not solidify his claims due to lack of research. On such incident, Pulkit said,
We’ll follow the required procedure and hopefully, we can show everyone that this works.”
In an interview, when he was asked why he did not do anything for COVID in 2020, he replied,
IIT Delhi published something similar before me, so there was no point copying them.”
Though he could not do much about COVID-19, his group raised a mammoth sum of $50,000 which was donated to cancer research and frontline workers in 2020.
