DARPAN Magazine's Newmakers 2016

DARPAN Magazine's Newmakers 2016
2016 was a great year for the South Asian community. It was filled with promising initiatives taken up by most of our members and great achievements/honours received by many. It was only ideal to start 2017 by remembering these personalities and applauding them for making the community proud. This is how the idea of DARPAN’s 2016 Newsmakers came into being.

Through all these experiments, Mistry “was trying to bring a part of the physical world to the digital world.”
