Repair Cafe Bengaluru,
Purna Sarkar is an activist, theatre in education (TIE) coach, life skills trainer and HR professional. She is a co-founder of an environmental sustainability initiative called Repair Cafe Bengaluru. The idea of repair was not new to her life, as she has witnessed her parents and grandparents maintain a box of tools ready to tinker when the need arose. Purna left her corporate job to do something more meaningful and that was the beginning of repair café workshops in Bengaluru in 2015.
