" In both senses literally and metaphorically, unable to finish what I take on my plate upsets me. That being so, I cherish sustainable growth and development. In the spirit of making this world a better space, while numerous young minds leaving their footprints behind, I would like to add my baby steps as well. I believe that courage to take initiatives brings the change one wish to see around, and I aspire to be venturous enough. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Iota: Sustainable Wastepaper Management
Paper waste is one of the big concerns on college/university campuses. The project aims to realize a simple intent: installing a paper recycle machine on campus and/or establishing a system to make paper recycling efficient. As the project comes under ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns, and being a zero-waste campus is a dream goal for any organization, it is not only pleasant for the environment but also considerate for the organization's economy. Perhaps, zero paper waste can be the first step or a jump for Ashoka University in that direction that can guide others at Ashoka University to aspire for another long jump, maybe zero food waste, and so on.
