My work creating new forms of institutions and initiatives and the most recent projects are all linked here. While I list them here as my work, I need to acknowledge that it is always in collaboration with and cooperation of several other people.
initiatives that I have been creating in recent times
conservation linked livelihood plan for Tribal communities
An integrated conservation linked livelihood proposal for the Kaani Tribal Community living in the southern tip of the biological hotspot of western ghats in the Kanyakumari district of Tamilnadu, India. - Government of Tamilnadu, May 2019
Evolving Ethical Labelling for rural women enterprise products
local communities, provided with the managerial competence and technical support for the eco-system can create their own unique selling propositions for ethical, green and inclusive product marketing. Ten such clusters will be developed for local products each with 5-20 producer groups. - Government of Tamilnadu, Jan 2019

My Advocacy & Campaign
Million Voices for Gandhi
It started as part of the course on Contemporary Gandhi for the students, but has grown into an effort by ordinary people to articulate what Gandhi meant to them.
Tamilnadu Environmental Research & Advocacy
An initiative still in a nascent stage, to create a network of people's organizations that are actively involved in researching and using their research to advocacy on environmental issues across the state of Tamilnadu.
