From concerts to conservation, it has been a journey of transition for me. My interests lie in the field of elephant behaviour and this has helped me to be instrumental in human elephant conflict management in the Anamalais. Over the past few years, I have witnessed and documented some of the rare and intimate moments of elephant life. Besides spamming the residents of Valparai, I am also interested in photography and filming the natural world around me.
