Since my birth - which is a bit more than 71 years ago - I've witnessed perpetual conflict in the South Asian region. Warns between India and Pakistan; wars in Afghanistan and wars in the Middle East! Wars, along with harming the poor and women and children the most, also scoff at rule of law robbing the faculty and facility of a dialogue and replacing it with insane jingoism. By joining Namati, I intend to work with them to promote access to justice to the teeming poor and disadvantaged among us in the developing world.

I intend to employ Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) to raise awareness about legal rights so that the people are able to raise voice for their rights. I believe "communication" is a central development issue. Unfortunately the power elite in most of the former colonized world still treats "access to information" as the colonialists did! We need tto cjange this thinking and practice to encourage access to information for all.
