Aliston Texeira: “Nature is not a place to visit - it is home... I plan to use the Sharavathi Rainforest farm space to create a central repository for all types of useful plants, local and exotic, while studying and making accessible to others, indigenous knowledge of ecosystem interactions and ways of living.”
Hema Bapat: “When I began the Sustainable Living course in Bhoomi, little did I imagine that I would get so committed to reviving the Hado Siddhapura Lake. It may be a long journey, but with so many people who are suppporting me, it seems possible for an ordinary person like me.”
There was a time when the high rise buildings and the illuminated malls used to attract and impress me. I was a typical city dweller, happy and proud about its huge infrastructure.
