Ms. Trupti Doshi is the Architect of our flagship project – Jagriti Enterprise Centre, Purvanchal commissioned by Jagriti, a national non-profit organisation and organiser of JagritiYatra – Journey of Awakening, the world’s longest train journey dedicated to Social Enterprise. My relationship with the Trupti is Client – Architect. I have known Trupti for the past 2.5 years, since she came aboard on Jagriti Yatra in 2014. We selected her as the architect of our Enterprise Incubation Centre soon after. Trupti’s genius lies in embracing a project at its conceptual level as her own, and shaping it with her creativity that is inspired by her inquisitiveness to explore new horizons. It’s not easy to convince everyone about new, radical ideas, especially when the person in question is your client. But that’s what Trupti does with certain poise. And the reason she does this is because she imbibes the vision of the person and becomes a co-creator in the process. To me, that is the mark of a leader. My organization has been engaging with Trupti for more than a year for the Incubation Centre idea. She has really championed the idea, collaborated with our various team members, listened to every idea with open mind and heart. Finally she delighted us with her designs which kept on improving every time they came to us. She is not satisfied with the ordinary, neither she let people around her get satisfied with the prosaic. The project brief kept on changing but every time she took it as a challenge and came back to us with something that was beyond our imagination. Her dedication and passion towards the work she takes up is exemplary. I highly recommend Trupti’s selection for your Professional Fellows Program and am sure she will be a note-worthy asset to your team and the alumni.
