Profile Information

Rituu B. Nanda
The Constellation & Institute of Social Studies Trust
About Me:
Am still asking the question -who am I?
I love SALT but practice is difficult.
I want to explore the connection between SALT and spirituality.

My professional interests are facilitating community conversations and action, participatory action research, participatory evaluation, gender and equity issues; complexity and systems thinking; Public health is the sector I have worked mostly in.
My dream:
I have these dreams,the closer I get to them in this life time, I would have achieved my life purpose:
-Be non-judgemental
-Have no expectations from anyone as they are cause of misery
-to be selfless in whatever I do. If I help I do not expect anything in return, if I care I have no selfish motive. Otherwise its business.
-to connect as a human being with others
-to be appreciative
-to be a deep and compassionate listener and also listen to my inner voice
I'm proud of:
that I have tried to follow my instinct and inner voice in this life time. When I facilitate SALT feel that this is what I was meant to do.

When health worker begins to facilitate SALT

Posted on September 30, 2019 at 8:30am 1 Comment

Late in the night I received a message  health worker or ASHA(accredited social health activist) as we call in India. She had facilitated SALT for the first time and enjoyed it and wanted to share the pictures with me. She is Anita from Dharech, Block Theog, Himachal Pradesh, India. We are working with NGO Mamta-HIMC funded by Medtronic Philanthropy on patient centred approach to diabetes and hypertension. 

This what Anita shared:

I think SALT is a very good approach…


SALT stimulates response and behaviour change

One of the early projects I facilitated CLCP around 2012. I actively started facilitating in 2013.
Avahaan Project funded by BMGF and for Care India, I facilitated CLCP with a collective of 10 sex worker CBOs called Nari Saksham in Rajahmundry. This was under Anthony Reddy who headed the project. Through CLCP we had to build leadership amongst the sex workers to improve organisation and development of CBOs. 
During one of the SALT visits one of the practices which…

Whose knowledge is valid?

I have been informally involved with Society for Community Research and Action. The group recently had an exciting discussion on definition of CP practice and how it can/is/should change! I watched the video later and found it very useful and want to share with you. Thanks to Nicole Freund, Research Scientist, Managing Editor, Global Journal of Community Psychology Practice for this video. 

Key takeaways from the video

My experience in this particular is brand new. Most of my experiences of community both good & challenging have been faith-based in the United States, Canada, & Puerto Rico. 

For several years I was active in the Mankind Project local community in Cleveland, OH. New Warriors is a rite of passage for men with weekly groups for support. I facilitated several of these during my time there. 

I love everything about community, especially sitting in circle. Currently, I am a co-host for monthly World Cafe online calls. Also, taken a course on The Circle Way. 

My BIG wild idea is a sustainable ecosystem where each of us is supported for life. We have someone greeting us at birth and usually helping us leave at death. Our first breath is witnessed by another human being. And, so is our last. Why not have life support for every breath in between? From cradle to grave.

Your post is inspiring! I had to grab the last part and repeat it here:

Everyone knows what isn't right...their flaws, their weaknesses, but few people know and focus on their strengths, the talents, their skills, their blessings... what is right. It's true isn't it... when our own mental patterns guide us we feel so empowered, no matter what challenges we have, no matter what mountains we need to climb, we make a plan and go about getting it done. More importantly, when we share our dream with others they feel the need to help us fulfill our dreams. We dream together and each other’s words feed our minds and stimulate thought and action.

I end with a beautiful quote by Dom Helder Camara: When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality.

Yes, I will add a photo. Working on a new headshot.

Thank you for your very kind words. I will try and do a few statements. At the moment however, I'm bogged down with some strict deadlines.
