As we wrapped up yet another year of a very successful association with Pratibimb, we wanted to reflect back on the wonderful exhibition that it was and the year leading up to it. Pratibimb is an annual exhibition-cum-sale organized by the Rangoonwala Foundation India Trust in Mumbai. It serves as a platform for its Partner Organizations like us, trainees from its Community Centers, as well as individuals and groups associated with it to exhibit and sell their products and also to reflect on their work. Through Pratibimb, the idea is to enhance the visibility of the work of the participating organizations and also to sensitize civil society on the processes and to the people behind the products on display. It was held this year at Bajaj Hall in Nariman Point and spanned a period of 4 days from 6 th of February to the 9 th of February.
