A native of Indian Himalayan region (Rudraprayag in Uttarakhand) that boarders to China and Nepal, my work and interest remained in these mighty and beautiful Himalayan Mountains. A seasoned professional, worked on various environment and development issues over decade in India and Himalayan region. I am trained in various ecosystem approaches in water resources, bio-diversity, farming and mountain climate change issues. Spearheaded an initiative, called 'Climate Himalaya', and involved in developing the first phase of knowledge networking and partnership among interest groups in 4 South Asian countries like Bhutan, India, Nepal and Pakistan. I am fond of debating issues related to environment and mountain development. I keep on traveling in Hindu Kush Himalayan region and around the world to meet people to network and support Climate Himalaya's work.

Looking upon present trend of development and socio-environmental changes in Himalayan Mountains, it is expected that the ongoing downstream migration from Himalayan region will be at peak by 2050, to seek food, water and livelihood. On other hand there will be increased efforts and financing towards research, development and establishment of institutions in the region! So, what entails to present efforts and establishments! And, what great the increase will do! This blog is compilation of my personal opinion on various socio-environmental issues, which I observed and learned over the years from these mighty terrains. They examine about various social, environmental and developmental efforts, processes, within these mighty mountains and to its dwellers. They are about practices, policies and institutional functioning, and about contemporary to traditional science. They are contextual, and entail the veracity of development in Himalayan Mountains!
