Students’ Experience      

Institute of Design student participates in Jagriti Yatra  

Gauri Asati, a Semester VI student from the Institute of Design was selected for Jagriti Yatra held from Dec 24, 2022 to Jan 8, 2023. She was there as an artist on board, where she was supposed to document the journey and the experiences through artistic means. As quoted by her, “Jagriti yatra was a highly enriching experience in terms of meeting new people all over India and around the world, living on a moving train for 15 days, and living with the changing landscape every day. It was challenging and equally adventurous. I got to meet people who are absolute pioneers in their field of study. We visited social organisations like Arvind Eye Care in Madhurai and Gram Vikas in Orrisa. Industrial visit to Sricity in Andhra Pradesh exposed us to the largest Industrial Park in South India spread over 7,500 acres of land.”

Jagriti yatra was an experiential journey for her incorporating wide aspects such as building startups, learning business models, taking leadership lessons, tinkering dreams, constructing & deconstructing ideas, identifying problems, surveys in the heart of India- villages, talking about the solutions more, building relationships and mindsets, and much more.

About Jagriti Yatra: It is an ambitious train journey of discovery and transformation that takes hundreds of India’s highly motivated youth, from all over India and the world, on a 15-day, 8000 km national odyssey to meet the role models – social and business entrepreneurs – of the country. The vision of Jagriti is ‘building India through enterprise’. Jagriti yatra is a confluence of change-makers, leaders, problem-solvers and innovators. It focuses on the themes of Agriculture, Health, Technology, Handicraft and Apparel, Women Empowerment and Urbanisation, and Interlinking Entrepreneurship with Nation-building.
