Who is Alakh Pandey?

Alakh Pandey’s journey with Physics Wallah began in 2014 when he dropped out of his fourth year of B. Tech. and started the Physics Wallah YouTube channel, where he taught students simplified physics. Alakh Pandey received her early education in Prayagraj, where he was born in October 1991. He began teaching at a young age due to family financial constraints. 

Alakh did well in science, cracked UPSCEE and got into Harcourt Butler Technical Institute (HBTI) in Kanpur. Further, he enrolled in the college’s mechanical engineering course.

In his first year of B. Tech., Pandey scored 80% in Physics, placing him above his college peers. To fulfil his needs, he additionally began tutoring in his B.Tech’s second year. His interest in teaching had grown by the third year, and he wanted to learn more about it. 

Moreover, he wasn’t satisfied with college learning because he thought it didn’t help him in real life. As a result, he quit college in his final year, moved back to Prayagraj and debuted his YouTube channel, Physics Wallah, in 2014.

In the beginning, Pandey uploaded instructional videos on subjects for Class 12 in 2015 and 2016, but nothing came of it. On the other hand, his channel’s subscriber base increased in 2017 when videos on high school students’ topics were posted. Physics Wallah is envisioned to inspire young students and entrepreneurs.

Many people on Twitter have expressed their admiration for Alakh Pandey’s performance in the series, which stars Shriidhar Dubey as the lead. The trailer for the show has left many people in awe. 

In a tweet, digital entrepreneur Rahul Kumar Pandey wrote, “Wow… Just Saw the Trailer of Physics Wallah, and just by the glimpse of it felt this story of Alakh Pandey sir #physicswallah is so inspiring.”

Another tweet from Sandeep Kishore on Twitter read, “Alakh Sir is the G.O.A.T- Greatest of all teachers Can’t wait to watch Physics Wallah on @amazonminiTV #PhysicsWallahTrailer.”
