One such trip to Coorg, Madikeri ,with his family was the turning point in his life. One morning he was a part of bird watching activity guided by Mr.Ganesh. The most inspiring thing was the communication between the birds and the guide. He was so captivated by this activity that he couldn’t resist this thought coming over and over again. That’s when he started researching about nature and wildlife. The more he came to know about it the more he realized that this is where his passion lies.
