Lessons from Living in Nature
Nisha Srinivasan and her husband Ragu Padmanabhan had Silicon Valley careers, when in 2008, soon after having their son Aum, they promptly sold everything and moved to rural India. They wanted to farm, but had no experience in it and so set out as students of the land -- for instance, when they planted 9000 trees on their barren land, thousands didn't make it, but thousands blossomed into a mini-forest. They jumped in with the intention of living and being in a way that was better aligned with their inner voices, and learning what they needed along the way. In their own words, they saw it simply as an"experiment in laying a new path on an old road that leads to simplicity, sustainability and dare we say, spirituality." Nisha shares more from their journey in this disarming and inspiring piece.
