During his college days, Vivek had once found a stray dog, living outside his house. He fed the dog and took care of him for years, till a car ran over it, crushing its legs and leaving it with a permanent disability. Being a student, he did not have the funds to get medical treatment for the poor dog so he researched and started treating it on his own.

Unfortunately, even after plenty of efforts, the dog couldn't get better, and eventually, Tiwari had to take him to a nearby vet. On reaching there, he realized the insufferable pain the stray was bearing, without being able to express it, which birthed the idea of 'Bezubaan'.

It was on this day, he decided to dedicate his life to take care of those who are powerless and in need of help, just like the stray animals around. The list of the creatures include dogs, pigs, cats, cows and so on but isn't limited to it. According to Vivek, he had encountered many incidences where animals were not taken care of properly by the local clinics, which made him a practising 'home vet' and the rest is history.

40 furry members who have separate bunkers & a safe space

Even after being an engineering graduate from Lucknow's College of Engineering Sciences and Technology, Vivek decided to pursue his humanitarian side by dedicating his life to provide shelter to the vulnerable. In a conversation with Knocksense, he mentioned that he lives with his parents and about 40 furry members, who have separate bunkers and a safe space.

Currently, he treats the strays himself but in case of any major surgery, local ex-military vet, Dr. Kesarwani, looks after the procedures at a minimal cost. Further, with the support of his parents, a fellow colleague and a few part-time members, Vivek runs a KPO named 'Vivid Communications', to raise funds in order to support 'Bezubaan'.

Vivek single-handedly bears the cost of running the NGO, which comes up to over 1 lakh per month, to provide appropriate fodder, shelter, medical treatment and so on, to the 'Bezubaan' residents. Additionally, Vivek also medically treats the specially-abled humans on the streets, who have been found injured due to whatsoever reasons.

Keeping the spirit of the day alive, we urge you to be a part of this extraordinary persons' journey in supporting those who cannot fend for themselves. This article is a tribute to the remarkable work of Vivek Tiwari, who hardly takes any day off for himself, to fulfil his humanitarian duties.
