Meera Ramakrishnan

After 22 years of holding senior leadership positions in some of the best Indian & MNC organizations, I felt an urge to understand ‘my purpose’ in life. This urge & restlessness over the last 4 years made me explore various aspects that had a better meaning to what I do everyday.
This journey led me to understand my deeper passion for our traditions that were meaningful for our living. I decided with my friend to take my life’s journey forward in this direction to connect with our roots and bring to forefront our meaningful traditions.
