He lives in a forest in South India and is a member of the Auroville intentional community. When not dreaming about overland travel between Europe and Asia (ambitiously called the Green Silk Road) he is building tree houses with his kids. He is a member of the Vikalp Sangam -Indian confluence of alternatives, where groups from across the subcontinent join in imagining a more humane and ecological world.
