This January, Kalki Koechlin performed her poem “The Printing Machine” in a moving, massively viral video.
And this morning, Kalki received a letter from Melinda Gates chock-full of admiration for her work.
The letter reads:
Dear Ms Koechlin:
I appreciate your taking time to join me in a discussion on empowering women and girls in India. Your video poem, "The Printing Machine", was both powerful and thought-provoking.
Thank you for bringing attention to violence and discrimination against women. Your voice helps bring much needed attention and support to these issues — and I am grateful for your efforts.
It was a pleasure meeting you during my visit.
