Kalandri to me evokes a sense of peace and tranquility. A tiny little village set in rural India, it is in Rajasthan’s Sirohi District, around 150km from Udaipur. Even though I was born and brought up in Adoni, Andhra Pradesh, my forefathers came from Kalandri, Rajasthan. It’s like Adoni is my Karma Bhoomi and Kalhandri is my Dharma Bhoomi. I had heard many stories from my parents and grandparents about our ancestral village and therefore had a deep desire to reconnect with my roots. It’s like a legacy left behind by my ancestors. Around 4 years ago I acquired land in the village and thus started my tryst with my motherland.
Even before acquiring land in Kalandri one of the first things we did was to set up medical camps for the residents covering Eye check ups, Dental Check ups and Diabetes.
