MARKETING MANAGER
Kalyani’s days are filled with the delightful chaos of tending to her dogs, hens, fish, and cat while managing her bustling farm and vibrant garden. When she’s not busy attempting to perfect her baking skills, you’ll find her in a wildlife sanctuary, capturing the majestic beauty of tigers and raptors through her lens. And if that’s not enough, she’s off to distant lands, navigating her trusty 4×4.
