What Are You Most Passionate About?

Photography. I have a dream to setup a digital studio in my village where people can come and use my services. We don’t have much available in our village, and I would like to be the first person to make that happen.

Who is someone who inspires you?

People who come from downtrodden situations and manage to rise and help society. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar dedicated his whole life for the upliftment of the lower castes of the Hindu society really inspires me. He has done some remarkable good for society through his service for the Dalits and is a reference point for anyone to follow their ideals.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The voice of the Asian koel, it makes me feel really good. I feel so calm and serene by hearing its soothing voice.

What Project would a laptop help you with?

Helping others setting up a digital studio in our village.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

In today’s world, most of the work happens online. Information is disseminated through digital platforms so it gets really difficult to stay up-to-date or relevant without one. In our village, a lot of people are illiterate people so they face even more difficulty. By receiving a laptop, I could help them as well. I could also involve myself in wedding photography as I love taking pictures and capturing emotions.

What do you love about this project?

I love being able to freeze a moment and relive the it through a photograph.  It makes me feel good.

What Languages do you speak?

Marathi, Hindi

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
