Next Victim Please

Next Victim Please

I was born to struggle, up to my last breath, I have to struggle for everything
— Ketan Kumar Shirke, TFT India

Who are the hardy souls working to help people and plant trees in rural India?

Next Victim Please’ is the third and final podcast from my recent trip to India. Having travelled to Rajasthan to visit cobblestone producers (Stone Voices) and then to Haryana to meet Krishan Rao, tree planter extraordinaire (On the trail of the Sheesham Tree), I returned to TFT’s office in Delhi where I spent a lovely time speaking with my TFT India colleagues.

These are people like you and me; people with family, pressures, loves and dreams. I asked each of them nine questions and their deep humanity shone through in their answers.

I am privileged to work with colleagues like Amit, Priyanka, Gaurav, Girish, Geta, Ketan, Vishal, Sanjeet and Sanket and 270 more TFT people around the world as well as so many others who too are striving and struggling each day to make a difference. There is a lot to do but if we just keep going, keep living according to the fine values our parents taught us, perhaps we can each make a contribution.
