Ramon Magsaysay awardee and social worker Prakash Baba Amte, who took the hot seat on television game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) for a special episode, says through the platform, he hopes to urge the country’s youth to try and be exposed to reality before building a career of their choice as they may find a new path to live.

The social worker from Maharashtra, along with his wife Mandakini, run an animal orphanage and sanctuary on a 50 acre land in Hemalkasa. They have also been involved in philanthropic work in the form of the Lok Biradari Prakalp amongst the Madia Gonds in Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra and the neighbouring states of Telangana and Madhya Pradesh.

Prakash visited the sets of KBC, hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan, as part of KBC Karamveer which has individuals whose heroic actions and good deeds have brought about a positive change in society.

For Prakash, the younger son of Baba Amte, it was a “very exciting feeling” for him to get on the hot seat with the “legendary” Big B. “He has always been a personality that people look up to and I was looking forward to meet him,” Prakash said, and praised this year’s tagline for KBC, #KabTakRokego, which salutes the indomitable spirit of the common man to overcome obstacles.
