Here at Law & Order, we place our bets on young ones. This month we are looking at six change makers in finance, literature, education and politics.
Puneet Kothapa – A chartered accountant with five years of work experience in Ernst and Young. He is the Hyderabad-based executive director of the Narayana Group of Educational Institutions which comprises 450 primary-secondary schools, junior colleges, and a medical and dental college, and two engineering and nursing colleges with an enrollment of 350,000 students and 13000 faculty in 11 states countrywide! His vision was to equip the children with what awaits them as they climb up the success ladder.
Julia Hansen – Inspired by the gruesome horror of losing two friends to mental illness during her sophomore year, Julia created the YELLOW TULIP PROJECT back in 2016 in Seattle as a Non-Profit Organization with a zeal to smash the stigma around mental illness.
The project successfully expanded in over 30 states and with several countries on board. Julia delivered a TED talk in 2017, underlining the essence of the project. Their project involves the two largest events being centered around the tulips––in the fall they plant the tulips & in the spring they welcome them, all while bringing people together to talk about mental health and work toward smashing the stigma. Beyond these two anchoring events, the project is mobilizing an active network of YTP Ambassadors who are bringing their message to schools, something textbooks cannot preach.
Param Jaggi- is a young inventor who changed the world through his passion for environmentalism. At the tender age of 16, he created the Algae Mobile—a device that can convert carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles into oxygen. To inspire many like him: "At 19, I Think I Can Change the World. By 21 he has been focused on cleaning up the Earth and changing the course of where we're headed. However, nothing is quite as ambitious as the Eco tube. Jaggi applies the technique of using layers of algae on plates arranged in a tube; when your car starts, emissions flow over it… including the CO2 we need out of the atmosphere. The algae turn the CO2 into oxygen, and even the least fuel-efficient vehicle has become greener.
