About Me Active in the alternative lifestyle movement in Australia since my teens, I first joined the Down To Earth Movement in 1977, and Friends of the Earth soon afterwards. The pivotal moment for me was at the 2nd ever ConFest in Bredbo (Canberra) where I was amongst the co-signatories of the Charter established by the ConfFest organizers.

In the early 1980's Permaculture became known through the efforts of Bill Mollison & David Holmgren, which for me epitomized the "need of the hour" in terms of just how important it is for us human beings to reconnect with the natural balance that the Earth provides us ... reconnect with nature, reconnect with what is right and true. The 3 basic tenets governing Permaculture Principles and (1) Earth Care, (2) People Care, and (3) Fare Share - the tenets by which i have chosen to live my life.

In the 1990's I first visited India. Little did I realize then, that I would wind up living here full-time in India, keeping a house in the beautiful Himalayas, and launching the Permaculture India movement nation-wide. My life is now full - growing the Permaculture India movement in a subcontinent that contains near-abouts 20% of the total human population on this planet.
