Shonu is known as an experimental educationist, philanthropic media person and a motivated and focused traveler. After his PGD – Children, Youth & Development (ISS, The Hague), he worked closely with various companies, broadcast channels, NGOs with children from marginalized communities across India and now, EdTerra. He has also designed, trained, supervised and evaluated Child-Led Media Projects in Africa and Asia apart from his association with the Education Department of Brown University for ArtsLits program. His perceptively made films helped the children articulate, and sensitized the world to their plight. These films won many awards including the ‘One World Media Special Achievement Award – 2003’. Incidentally, he is the second Asian to be conferred this prestigious award. He is a ‘continuous learner’ and endorses the credence that children have the wisdom of the ancient sages and are his best teachers. He wants the children of today also to see life in all its universality and totality and since the world is interconnected and has to be collaborated, the children must travel and overcome cultural boundaries.
