CHANGE­MAK­ERS

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNE - BY ADITI PAI

Pune’s young bri­gade is mak­ing a splash with their achieve­ments. From ad­ven­ture sports to the arts, this Gen­next is bring­ing home in­ter­na­tional ac­co­lades, win­ning hearts and mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to so­ci­ety. For some, the cho­sen field is a long cher­ished dream; for oth­ers, the achieve­ment is a mix of chance and hard work. While 21 year-old moun­taineer Krush­naa Patil be­came the youngest girl from Ma­ha­rash­tra to scale Mount Ever­est, award-win­ning di­rec­tor Umesh Kulka­rni al­most be­came a char­tered ac­coun­tant be­fore he chose to pur­sue a ca­reer in cinema. For noted vo­cal­ist Rahul Desh­pande, mu­sic wasn’t the first choice while Bhushan Tosh­ni­wal proved that vis­ual im­pair­ment couldn’t kill his dreams when he cleared his ac­coun­tancy ex­ams. SIM­PLY PUNE meets these young achiev­ers who’ve made a mark in their fields.
