About Me
I was educated as MD (Anaesthesiology)1983, Pune; PGCPC (Vellore) 2001. I worked as Eclectic Psychotherapist-teacher and trainer at my own center. I am now retired since Jan 2015. I have now devoted myself to photo-documentation, conservation and restoration of wild flora and fauna.
I have been associated with various wildlife organizations in Pune since 1995. I am interested in whole web of life instead of any particular branch of biology. I have been travelling and documenting flora and fauna across India visiting various types of habitats.

From 12th July 2014 till July 2015 I had focused my attention on study of plateaus especially Kas Plateau in Satara Dist. My adviser was Dr. Aparna Watve. Along with Kas plateau, I completed year long documentation of other adjacent locations like Pune-Satara highway, Satara-Gondawale road. I documented observations from Mahabaleshwar, Panchgani and Amboli - other key high attitude plateaus in western Ghats in the state of Maharashtra. The flora of Khambataki Ghat, which I documented during 2014-15, part of it is lost because of road widening.

From Aug 2015 till Oct 2015, I documented flora and fauna of Monsoon from Mulshi Taluka of Pune Dist. During this time I continued documenting observations from Kas, Mahabaleshwar and Amboli for missing species.

I have also completed year round documentation of Pune city flowers, flora and fauna of Katraj Ghat and Tahmini Ghat.

I feel fascinated to visit and document various passes of Sahyadri in Maharashtra state. I visit them particularly during monsoon. Recently,I visited Low Level Ferrecrete plateaus of Ratnagiri dist.

I have uploaded observations of wild flora and fauna from states other than Maharashtra on this portal.
