Affiliations and Achievements:
Self Published the first photo-video book on the Toto tribe of India in Dec. 2021 from Oslo.

This photo book (which took 7+ years to compile) gives a visual, sociological, anthropological and a documentary insight into the culture, traditions, and daily life of the little-known indigenous Toto tribe of India. It is the first extensive photo book on the indigenous Totos who are only about 1600 and reside only in Totopara, a small village in the state of West Bengal bordering Bhutan. This photo book also visually traces the changes in the indigenous Totos’ life due to globalization, modernization, and acculturation through the medium of photographs and videos. It also contains exclusive videos embedded in QR Codes about the indigenous Totos’ culture and traditions.
