Welcome to Blue Jay Diaries.
This blog is the namesake of one of my favourite birds, the iridescent Indian Roller or the Indian Blue Jay, the state bird of Karnataka, my home in India.
An environmental engineer turned software marketer, I switched gears from the corporate side to independent consulting after over a decade and a half with software product companies.
Farming though, is my first love. Together with my family, I run Navilu Kaadu, a zero-chemical farm on the outskirts of Mysuru, modeled on the Subhash Palekar Natural Farming (SPNF) methodology. Navilu Kaadu is helping us realize our dream of growing our own food and sharing the land with all its critters, in a small way.
Natural farming aside, writing, deep dense forests, mountain streams and winged beauties make up the rest of my love interests.
Ruminations on sustainable living, farming, nature, people, places and some more, find a place in Blue Jay Diaries.
Hope you enjoy the read. Thanks for stopping by.
