My name is Sunil. I am originally from India and live in Schio (VI) in the north-east of Italy. I am responsible of the creation, design and running of this trilingual webzine.

Dr Sunil DeepakI am a medical doctor and my professional areas of expertise are leprosy, primary health care, community health, community-based rehabilitation (CBR), leprosy control & rehabilitation and Community-based Inclusive Development (CBID). For almost three decades, I was working for an Italian grassroots organisation called Aifo, first as the head of its international projects department and later as the head of its scientific support department. Over the years I have also worked with different U.N. organizations especially the World Health Organization (WHO) and many NGOs. During my professional carrier I have held other important positions such as being the president of ILEP (International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations). Between December 2014 and April 2016, I was based in Guwahati (Assam, India) as head of the north-east office of Mobility India.

Now, formally retired, I continue to work in collaboration with some international voluntary associations and as a freelance consultant. Over the past couple of years, I have been mainly involved in emancipatory disability research and training related to CBR and CBID programs. You can read or download some of my reports, research articles and publications.

About Kalpana

Kalpana is a trilingual webzine in English, Italian and Hindi. Its motto is Creativity with social consciousness.

The word Kalpana comes from Hindi and means imagination. It started as a small personal webpage in 2001 and over the years has grown in its present form. Initially, it was called Srijan. It is a hand-coded website designed in HTML with some CSS. It has been redesigned a few times. This version of the website was designed around 2013-14. I do not update it often.
