About Arun Kumar Mishra (UPSIDC)

Purpose + Passion + Perseverance = Prosperity

These are not just mere words. They are words of an indomitable will. They speak of the character of a human being. They speak of courage. They speak of success. They speak of – Arun Kumar Mishra, Chief Engineer at UPSIDC. (U.P. State Industrial Development Corporation).

Arun Kumar Mishra is currently placed as a Chief Engineer in the UPSIDC (Uttar Pradesh State Industrial Development Corporation). Under his leadership, the UPSIDC has forged into new arenas and embarked on great industrial ventures and projects including Leather Technology Park, UPSIDC has developed two Agro Parks at Kursi Road Barabanki & Karkhion, Varanasi, Textile Parks, Tronica City. A tireless worker, Arun Kumar Mishra stays on task with the most difficult of projects. He is one of those quiet, behind-the-scenes leaders who knows how to get things done.

Arun Kumar Mishra strongly believes that there is a difference between making a living and making a life – and life without purpose is meaningless. “Purpose is not just any purpose but one that stirs your soul and pushes you forward to build a better world, not just for yourself, but for others.”

He is also known as a passionate advocate of sustainable development, progressive planning, green technology and above all, human rights. He champions many causes and strongly believes that we must encourage our youth to focus on literacies, skills, and innovation to build best-in-class infrastructures and society.

Personally, he doesn’t like to call himself a religious man. He believes in God but more importantly, he believes that, “standing up for one’s convictions is the hardest and most courageous thing to do but that’s what defines your character. That is your identity. Your true religion”.

Deeply spiritual, Arun Kumar Mishra, can be best summarized as a karma-yogi. Karmaṇy akarma yaḥ paśyed akarmaṇi ca karma yaḥ, sa buddhimān manuṣyeṣu sa yuktaḥ kṛtsnakarmakṛt (Gita 4.18). Work we must. Silent we must not be. His values and convictions reflect in the work he undertakes and executes.

Whenever he is not traveling and meeting people, he loves to read Biographies of living legends and actively encourages the youth to read it, saying “they allow you to see the world in new ways.”
