What does it take to run an orphanage for rescued animals which may have otherwise ended up as dinner for the local population? What does it take for a regular surgeon to perform cataract operation with just a book as a reference? And least of all, what does it take to be Baba Amte’s son? In this Q&A with INK Curator Lakshmi Pratury, Magsaysay awardee Prakash Amte answers these questions and more.

ABOUT PRAKASH AMTE: Magsaysay Awardee Prakash Amte runs Lok Biradari Prakalp to provide community services to tribal people in rural Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. The project has grown into a hospital, residential school and an orphanage for injured wild animals. He heads a rare informal court where adivasis (tribals) from far come out of love and trust that justice will be granted.
