Testimony

“While both of us have worked in India before, this was also the first time we had run our own survey. We became very aware of all of the things, small and large, that can go wrong when doing fieldwork. The grant from the Mittal Institute gave us the opportunity to run a small pilot survey that gave us the experience we needed so that our future surveys are run more smoothly.”
