Then there is me. Murali alias AV Narayanaswami. Orphaned at a young age I got lost in the forest of life. After attaining the age of majority legally, I purchased Sundara Mahal and adjacent lands from other legal heirs and decided to settle here. I actively ran businesses, Invested well, acted as a retained consultant for UNDP, Kerala State IT Mission, developed Asia’s largest agribusiness database, designed and built the database to protect the IPR of traditional knowledge in Kerala, organised farmers to be aware of the opportunities arising out of Globalised trade regime, appeared on TV channels, enjoyed public speaking and writing articles and essays.
