"Paradox and wonder are the words that come to mind when I think of India. For nearly five years, this country has not only shaped my mission but also transformed the way I connect with others and my approach to life.

Working with LP4Y in such a new environment forced me to question my Western ideas, to adopt new perspectives and to get out of my comfort zone.
The old man in the winery with the toothless smile, the neighbour who treats us to sweets, the auto-rickshaw driver with a deceptively stern look... all these encounters punctuate and brighten the daily experience of Catalyst. Some dread it, others are just waiting to dive in, and in the end, most of them feed off it and aspire to return. To live India is to live in the moment!"
