Ramesh, in one of his avatars, is an amateur musician with a proclivity for Indian Classical music. He is pursuing Dhrupad, one of the oldest genres of Hindustani vocal styles, under the tutelage of the world-renowned Gundecha Brothers. To lend further credence to the seriousness of each of his undertakings, Ramesh has also conceptualized and modified a western instrument — the fretless bass guitar — in order to do justice to the vocals. A core team member of Journeys With Meaning (JwM), an award winning social enterprise in the space of experiential learning and education for ecological and sustainability solutions, Ramesh endeavors to lead a zero-waste, plastic free, and sustainable lifestyle.
He lives by Horace Walpole’s assertion, “Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he isn’t. A sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is.”
