Manager of Artisans Marketing Company, Rang Sutra
November 2007: Upon returning to India, I co-founded Rang Sutra, a federation of grassroots organizations from around India who work for the economic and social empowerment of rural producer groups. Now I am running a small company (part of the federation) that markets the products of over 1,000 artisans from remote and tribal regions of India. This company sells to Fabindia (a main markerter in India of Indian made quality fabrics, crafts and other products).
While at CJP I dreamed up this company, and did the ground work in a major paper for one of my classes. When I returned to India, I got it implemented. You can read more about this organization at www.rangsutra.com.
My daughter is now in her last year of college at Lady Shri Ram College where Rina Kashyap (MA ’07) and Shweta Singh (SPI ’06) teach.
