Case Study: Thingnam Girija

Thingnam Girija’s love for flowers and children is evident through her work as a teacher working with autistic children. But it is her lifelong passion for flowers that led her to create a one-of-its-kind website www.flowersofindia.net along with Dr. Tabish Qureshi, a physics professor at Jamia Millia. The duo undertook this endeavour when they realized that there was little to no information available online about India’s floral heritage. The project took the duo across the terrains of north and northeast India to photograph and study flowers.
