I am a simple human just like anyone with curiosity for nature and life. I am totally in love with India and often amaze at the deep culture every state in India has to offer right from food to traditions to temples to homes. I am blessed to have experienced just few state cultures like Karnataka, Kerala, Gujarat and Maharashtra. The ancient wisdom each culture in India offers great insight into how our ancestors connected almost everything for our well-being.
