Hello! I started ‘Little Planet Foundation’ (LPF) at age 15 as a grade 10 student, with a deep interest in wildlife since early childhood. LPF is my non-profit initiative to make a difference to the wildlife and environment. 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, India.
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.
Now that I am pursuing an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science degree from University of California at Berkeley, it gives me an opportunity to widen my horizon and connect with other students and thought leaders who are equally passionate about conserving the fragile natural ecosystem.
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.
First citizen of Little Planet
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’.
