why are we building
a start-up eco-ashram

cities in India are congested, plagued by pollution, and are hotbeds for inequality. yet, people continue to migrate to cities for economic opportunities.

but what if you could realize your potential as a human being WITHOUT sacrificing your - health, mental wellbeing, spiritual progress and personal relationships, while pursuing work that is meaningful and beneficial to the world around you.

the eco-ashram aims to be a haven for creators of all kinds to freely pursue their passions without worrying about their physical survival. at its core, the ashram will be the epicenter of creativity, sustainable living, healthy relationships, and spiritual progress.
