Who we are

Hello! I am a grade 10 student, with a deep interest in wildlife since early childhood. ‘Little Planet Foundation’ is my non-profit initiative to make a difference to the wildlife and nature. It was this passion which encouraged me to travel to different sanctuaries around the world to pursue wildlife and nature photography as one of the activities to generate awareness. In October 2017 I held my maiden photography exhibition in Mumbai.

In addition to the above, my interests involve studying Physics and Mathematics, playing football, skiing and diving to catch a glimpse of the underwater world.

I am deeply thankful to my mentor and a leading Indian Environmentalist Mr. Bittu Sahgal and his team for guiding me and allowing me to work with Sanctuary Nature Foundation during my breaks from School. I am also greatly thankful to Lokmat Media Groups’ senior journalist Ms. Aparna Velankar for supporting me in my efforts.

Why we exist

I dream of a beautiful world where flora and fauna are nurtured and cared for and development and environment co-exist in harmonious balance. However, reality is far from this ideal situation.

It is our endeavour through ‘Little Planet Foundation’ (LPF) to create awareness and provide support for wildlife, marine life and nature conservation in every possible way. I believe no effort is too small in this direction. LPF will aim to undertake a range of activities for its main cause. I appeal to every person to support us with ideas, experiences, funds and above all moral support in order to achieve our purpose. Become a citizen of the ‘Little Planet’.
