A Session By Alumnus

On 29th June, 2019, Sanskaar Alumnus Pracheer Dutta, a social entrepreneur was invited to share his journey in the field of environment sustainability. 

He is an IIT Delhi pass out in Textile Technology. He wanted to work in the field of environment sustainability right from the school and while studying in IIT Delhi, the smog in the city bothered him a lot. He wanted to work on it and so founded Kriya Labs with his other batch mates. Kriya Labs develops products and processes to produce affordable, high – quality and eco – friendly value added products from waste natural materials/ fibers. The startup is a case study now at various National conferences. He discussed various techniques with students regarding paper recycling.

He shared his school experiences, journey of preparing and getting into IIT Delhi and the struggle to starting his own venture. His journey from The Sanskaar valley school to IIT was not less than an inspiration for the students. He stressed on the fact that overall skill development is more important than just obtaining high marks. Post talk, students flocked around him to ask so many questions. He addressed them all.

He believes that, “One need to have a direction and idea about what inspires you.” 

Students left the hall inspired and motivated.
