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.

Shift in Gender roles & responsibilities

Posted on February 9, 2020 at 10:30pm 2 Comments


United Nations’ Gender Development Index confirms that countries with a high level of gender equality have higher immunisation coverage. In India, socially constructed roles and behaviors are attributed to men and women. Too often, the burden of child health falls solely on the shoulders of mother. According a GAVI study, making women the primary target of information campaigns merely perpetuates the idea that taking children to be…


SALT effects go deep within

Posted on February 6, 2020 at 11:30pm 1 Comment

We went for a SALT visit today to Village Hiragata and digging deeper brought surprising changes to the fore after nearly three years of the project.

Community shared that we cleaned up the playground of the school, planted trees in the ground, installed a water tap and ceiling fans in the classroom. Now the school is clean and beautiful. So what is the result of this, asked Laura Simms. When Children come to school, they enjoy playing in the playground, clean drinking water is…

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.

Dear Rituu,

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.
