Prabha and Murali of Sundara Mahal

Prabha and Murali

Prabha completed her Post Graduation in MSW at IGNOU and is currently on her second Post Graduation on Counselling and Family therapy and is a Life Skills Instructor. Besides she is the home maker, mother, manager of the farm, accountant, PR Chief, the chef, a person who is the living embodiment of a workaholic with a variant of productive OCD. Her genuine interest in people reflects on all of us when we have families as repeat guests every year. Thirty eight years of marriage and she still has this laugh.

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.

I have come to realise that it is extremely complicated to keep life simple.
I live it minute by minute and am enjoying my family, our guests, my studies, the gardening, reading, writing and now being the creator and webmaster of this site!
