"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

Lahiri sees himself as a campaigner and a campaign builder, trying to bring together many small movements and taking their voice to the corridors of power. His primary focus area for next couple of years will be northeast.

AID will strive to learn from Souparna Lahiriís work in the northeast, the aspirations and perceptions of the people there; how issues and movements are connected at the local and national level and mechanisms of engaging with the State.
