The Mentoring Relationship provided a unique opportunity to Sanchit, who had not engaged with mentors outside the class earlier. As someone who doesn’t usually ‘network’, he was initially a bit hesitant, but meeting Dr. Rizio Yohannan Raj and learning from her throughout the past 6 months or so has, in his own words, reshaped his perspectives and attitudes towards the worlds of thought and material. Dr. Raj is a writer, translator, the Founder-Patron of LILA Foundation for Translocal Initiatives, and the CEO of The Marg Foundation. Sanchit’s broad interests in art, culture, and literature motivated him to approach Dr. Raj. Her kind acceptance to mentor him has been, according to him, one of the highlights of his Fellowship experience. Apart from receiving academic guidance from Dr. Raj, Sanchit also got the opportunity to contribute to ‘Inter-Actions’, the thematic cultural quarterly by LILA Foundation.
