Vijay Kumar Naurang was born on 22 November 1911, in Salarganj village, Bahraich district, Uttar Pradesh. His early education took place in his native village and his dedication to serving the nation led him to rally fellow villagers to join the freedom struggle.

Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's ideology, he actively participated in the Civil Disobedience Movement of 1930, urging others to join. However, he faced imprisonment for six months and a fine of 100 rupees in 1932. Undeterred, upon release, he continued his revolutionary activities, resulting in a subsequent two-year imprisonment and a 200 rupee fine in 1934, all spent in Bahraich jail.

In 1940, he engaged in the 'Individual Movement' led by VinobaBhave and Jawaharlal Nehru, facing another year of imprisonment and a 100 rupee fine.

With Gandhi's leadership, on 8 August 1942, the Quit India Movement resolution was passed, and despite joining, he found himself under house arrest for 16 months.

Vijay Kumar Naurang's unwavering commitment to India's freedom struggle, despite multiple incarcerations and fines, exemplifies his dedication to the cause of independence.
