Alumnus, Education and Public Engagement


As a child, I spent much of my time on a small plantation in a tiny village on the Western Ghats. My fondest memories are of ostensibly herding cattle but really of following them about while they did their thing. I climbed trees, gorged on stolen fruit, caught tadpoles, gathered flowers.  As such, my connection to the natural world is a bit tactile and mostly emotional. The joy of being outdoors chasing fireflies defies description. Now, as  project associate, SeasonWatch, I work on getting school kids outdoors, and looking at trees. Get them to watch the seasons go by. Make connections, and connect with the natural world.

When I grow up, I want to study anthropology and look at conservation at the intersection of current culture, cultural inheritance, and the psychology behind it.
