|The Team Gone By
Parikshat (2002-03) was one of the founder members of Muse and it was his vision and love for Spiti that inspired him to establish the NGO Muse and work in this region. The team lost Parikshat unfortunately in a car accident while he was returning from Spiti in the winters of 2003.
Sonam Jorgyes (2002), for being with us and getting us started in the initial stages.
Gautam (2005), a man with a keen eye and also with the words to go with it. A passionate photographer, his contributions to Ecosphere’s travel initiatives are invaluable. Thanks for the pics G and the vision for Ecosphere. This website owes it to you.
Jasrriet (2006-07), a development professional from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences is a master of innovation and storehouse of energy. Her short but intense period with Ecosphere was one of rapid movements and gave Ecosphere a completely fresh and different perspective. She still continues to be one of our biggest supporters and assets.
Angchuk Dorje alias Amar Singh(2002-07), a native of the Spiti valley and one of the first locals to get involved with the initiatives of Ecosphere.
Lotey Zangbo alias Kalu(2002-06), a hard working individual who was involved in the management and set up of the Seabuckthorn processing units.
Schichot alias Raj Kumar(2006-08), was involved in the energy projects of Ecosphere. Although his stay was short it was definitely fruitful.
Bhutit (2002-08), -- another one of the locals who supported the cause of the organisation in the initial years. Her involvement in the seabuckthorn initiative was critical for its initial success.
Namgyal Dolma (2004-06) – the Rangrik nomo (girl from Rangrik village, famous for its pretty girls!!) thanks for keeping the office up and running efficiently.
Freya - Fatema Rehman (2008) – The biker girl from Bangalore. She brought in a new lease of interesting perspectives to Ecosphere and made her time fruitful and meaningful both for Ecosphere and herself. The summer of 2008 in Spiti will remember her fondly.
Yakuta Poonawala (2009) – A graduate in filming and a keen trekker, Yakuta spent 6 months with Ecosphere and worked on furthering Ecosphere’s responsible travel objectives.
