Mr. Shailesh Saraf
Founder and Bio EntrepreneuR
It is not my credentials as a Surface Coating Technologist, enabled me to undertake this effort, it was my passion. I am a student of nature and the science behind it. I grew up in cities nestled by the Western Ghats, this 150 million year old wonder(older than Himalayan mountain range) has raised thousands of species over the years against all odd. My goal is to gather the best minds in science and technology to study this ecosystem, and to create a resource that is freely accessible to everyone
