    It was an incredible, exciting, amazing time in India and very interesting to experience. Shantai is a small paradise to work in. We developed together great ideas for this place and I supported PPT through my concepts and design knowledge. During location scouting I got so see so many things in the area, the Ayurveda factory, the labour camp with their friendly people, the fishing village where the time passes so much slower. I remember the social documentary workshop I could participate in, the meetings and shoots. I very much enjoyed the travels together, the common meals along with the Shantai music and frog concerts. Thanks to all of you!

    “I am ever ready to help the trust because whatever I am today is because of PPT and the guidance of Sudharak sir. Working in the many PPT Projects has taught me how to talk to people in different situations on field and has also changed my personality and perception about life.”

    Graphic Designer / PPT Volunteer
    “I’ve always had a fascination of cameras, but photography never really took the center stage as I worked as a reporter for NDTV. Until I got enrolled for a photography course and met Sudharak sir. I have not looked at anything else but photography from that day onwards. From helping in transcribing stories of acid attack victims, being part of Documentation projects. PPT has helped me gain a lot of insight into photography and now have started my own Photography company called Lens Affair. Along with photography, Sudharak sir has taught me one thing is that no matter how big you become in life always stay true to your roots and never forget where you began.”
