Trina Talukdar


Trina envisions a world where society is being developed by the most unlikely leaders from unlikely places.

In order to find and nurture these leaders, Trina co-founded Kranti, an organisation that transforms girls from Mumbai's Red Light Areas into agents of social change. As Director of Venture and Fellowship for Ashoka, South Asia, Trina searched, selected, celebrated and supported the leading social entrepreneurs of our times to scale their work globally. 

Through Bolti Bandh, Trina continues to place the power of listening to those with opposing beliefs to ours, into the hands of unlikely leaders, in a bid to de-polarise our society.
