From 1997 to 2000 CE he was part of a team that was instrumental in the notification of 3 new Wildlife Sanctuaries in India. Here he worked in important natural heritage areas, and acquired a rich background in conservation of India’s bio diversity and its traditional way of life.
Thus he was in the thick of action in the new millennium, when information technology in an internet age created new age disruptive business models & facilitated highly personalised services to masses.
