An art director’s crusade for women’s safety

As street protests for the Delhi gang-rape victim thin out in the city, 36-year-old Sukant Panigrahy has held on tight to the hope of making a difference. Despite a hectic schedule as an art director for Yash Raj Films, Panigrahy visits Jogger’s Park at Lokhandwala in Andheri every evening from 7.30pm onwards with his friends, with a message to make the world a safer place for women.

Sometimes he has an audience, at other times he walks up to individuals and strikes up a conversation about women’s rights.
