Video interview | Magsaysay Awardee Prakash Amte on being a doctor practicing in the remote tribal regions – Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh & Chhattisgarh What does it take to be a doctor practicing in the remote tribal regions without easy access to proper medicine and technology? 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.
