WE ARE NOT IN SALEM TOWN. WE LIVE 65 Km away.
Living in our Organic farm.
I follow my heart rather than my mind. I have been out of the mainstream and been exploring everything alternative. We homeschooled our children; we are organic farmers; our house is solar powered. We harvest rainwater. . .
Nothing belongs to me.I have hired many of these and I will have to leave them sometime :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We have a beautiful house in a remote village. We offer simple stay and food for people who would like to touch base with nature. WE ARE NOT IN SALEM TOWN. We are 65 km away in a hill station. So If you are looking for a place in Salem, please check someone else.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
My first micro hydro project. We did this for a residential school in 1997. I was so happy when the tap was turned and the lights came on! After this, I have been at it ever since and get my reward every time when the tribal people for whom I work mostly shout in excitement when they see lights in their villages. . .
Teach, Learn, Share
a little bit of origami, chess, Solar energy, micro hydro power, organic farming, indian cuisine, etc
