Role of 'Community' in Localised Social-Ecological Regeneration
52 PARINDEY FELLOWSHIP
Ankita was born and raised in Delhi. With a background in literature and journalism, she worked with mainstream and alternative media for three years, during which she wrote on business, gender, education and culture. She hopes to find her short-story collection and comic book on a dusty shelf of a bookstore someday.
She took up the 52 Parindey Fellowship in an attempt to live slowly and write slower. During these five months, she visited various community spaces across India that are driven by a common interest or cause to understand the essence of community and participatory planning. Her exploration also took her to learn about the relevance of sustainable agricultural practices in the current industrialised model. She believes that growing one's own food is the most urgent act of political rebellion needed today.
