1001 People of Manipur

“1001Thagatchari” Gratitude project for Manipur
One of the takeaway I had interviewing many of the awesome talented voices of Manipur for the last 5 years was the lack of recognition and appreciation for their work and contribution. In the midst of conflicts, unrest and media’s focus for sensational stories, we have forgotten to say “Thank you” “Thagatchari”.
To change that I have challenged myself to find people who truly have appreciation and gratitude in their heart for the people of Manipur and the idea of “1001 Thagatchari” was seeded.

Sharing our deepest gratitude to the people of Manipur, we are grateful for your contribution for Manipur and for inspiring us. Thagatchari!
