During my first weeks in Denmark, I was lucky enough to have a group of wonderful people from my new university organizing activities and events for us international students, with the purpose of introducing us to Danish culture. Among these – between a beer pong tournament and a cooking session – was dumpster diving.
It was last winter of 2016; I decided to be part of Tata Institute of Social sciences (TISS), Mumbai. I never heard about it so far in my entire life. I appeared for the entrance exam, cleared it. I proceeded further for my interview and later on, I got selected out of a pool of competing students in India.
