MAHESH owns and runs NIRVRTA Estate and as well as managing the property and homestay, he is also a filmmaker and photographer, with a passion for creating things. From Bangalore, Mahesh is inspired by nature and the environment and this is evident in his film, photography and craft projects.
Mahesh is a social documentary photographer and captures people, street life and architecture. He also takes asana shots. If you fancy doing a yoga photoshoot during your stay at NIRVRTA, please contact Mahesh in advance and he can plan a session for you (see his website for details).
Mahesh designed NIRVRTA, project managed the construction and is instrumental in the continued creation and furnishing of the buildings and landscaping. Many of the wood turnings and ceramics that you see around the property, have been made by Mahesh. He is also gifted at growing things and we try to offer as much local produce as possible. Plenty of the food created in the kitchen, has been inspired by Mahesh’s culinary skills.
Having lived in London (after growing up in India), Mahesh is in a unique position of being able to create a space that encapsulates the charm and beauty of rural India, whilst living up to Western standards. He speaks several languages, has strong people skills and enjoys involving the local community in helping with the day to day running of NIRVRTA Estate.
