Through art we can see things in a different light and learn something new. In this episode, Nikunj Pathak shares his understanding of hope in form of a poem. This is the third and last part of my conversation with Nikunj. 


Text of the poem:

I ask what is hope
An emotion or a lie,
Or a word for refusing deny,
When I think of this I broke,
My mind doesnt know what is hope,

A river on her way to the sea,
And the eyes of a man on a boat,
Do they have the same destiny,
I dont know 
but I see hope,

Will the river meet the sea,
And the man his destiny,
Their fate is bound in one rope,
And I feel there is hope,

Dark clouds gearing up in the sky,
Looking up the man sighs,
Chilling wind and lightening sensations,
There is hope in his emotions,

This too shall pass,
Closing eyes he thought,
Sleeping on a floating boat,
I see hope.

In this episode Nikunj Pathak tells his story of how he met a farmer who had high expectations towards Nikunj's work. This is a story of how you can become hopeful by an unexpected encounter. This episode is the second part of the conversation with Nikunj.  Make sure to check out the first part which is called "Individual Power to Foster Change".

With Nikunj I talk about the current Covid-19 situation in India and his work as a field researcher in the water and sanitation sector. He gives an insight in his field research to improve sanitation in Indian villages. We conclude that every individual has the power to foster change. This is the first part of our conversation.
