New Delhi-based environmental charity Global Foundation and SEWA, a noted social development organisation of Assam, rolled out an Independence Day special programme – Tholua Kotha: Heart to Heart – a series of spirited conversations on Sunday.
“Born out of appreciation for individuals, who have gone out of the way to create unique value for our society and the environment, Tholua Kotha will capture their life-changing experience in its website -http://tholuakotha.in/all-events,” Pranab J Patar, chief executive of Global Foundation stated.
This series of free-flow conversations in Assamese aims to highlight ‘75 Change Makers of Assam’ as a tribute to an emerging new Assam’s contribution to India of the 21st century, Patar informed.
“Each episode of Tholua Kotha will present one story, a story that has the power to change the fate of thousand of others,” a press statement said.
One of the architects of this initiative, Bibek Bora, chairman of SEWA, hopes this programme on the Internet will inspire a generation of Assamese youths, who are waiting to embark on a journey of self-discovery and create something on their own.
“These stories will hopefully unveil ideas and solutions to bring about positive social change and mitigate environmental challenges of our times,” it said.
Dr Patar, who has been incubating the idea of Tholua Kotha for some time now, expressed his satisfaction over the development so far and hoped this initiative will inspire many people to take the leap of faith and usher a new journey of growth into the post-Covid world.
The first episode of Tholua Kotha, which was launched on August 15, features engineer Manoj K Das, managing director of Northeastern Regional Agricultural Marketing Corp (NERAMAC).
