In keeping with her interest in climate change and vegan food habits, Disha Ravi works as a culinary experience manager with GoodMylk, a company involved with making plant-based food accessible and affordable to people.
Bengaluru: In an interview last year to US author and professor Gayle Kimball, who is compiling a book on Gen Z girl climate activists, Indian climate activist Disha A Ravi, 22, weighed in on a question on whether protests and activism is a part of Indian culture.
“In India, protests are a part of life since the Indian freedom struggle was rooted in peaceful protests. There are a lot of protests on humanitarian issues and religious issues and protests are very ingrained in Indian society. Social media has helped in recent days,” said the business administration graduate, who was arrested by the Delhi Police Special Cell Saturday for links to a farmers’ protest toolkit put out by the teenage global climate activist Greta Thunberg.
Disha, who wanted her to pursue a career in finance, had been vocal about environment issues long before she graduated from Mount Carmel College in Bengaluru in 2018.
