Our Team

Dr. Pravin Chordia(MBBS, MS) :

Dr. Pravin Chordia(MBBS, MS) is a learned surgeon and has practiced modern-day allopathic treatments for nearly 30 years for his patients. He is a naturalist and visionary and could very well see where we as an urban community were headed in the name of growth. He bought this barren land of Serene in the year 2000. The idea was to move towards a tree-based economy as India was originally. He has designed the Medicine Free Life course for Serene.

Nikhil Kothari :

A mechanical engineer and an adventurer by heart. He is one of the founder members of the eco-tourism and MFL courses here at Serene. Tired of the regular corporate job and city life, he started visiting Serene and helped in the afforestation activities here. He felt in love with the place and decided to stay here forever. He loves to experiment with new ideas and has tried his hand at landscaping, interior décor, solar panels, plumbing, electricity, motors and many more.

Dipika Chordia :

Following her dad (Pravin Chordia), being in Nature came very naturally to her as an obvious lifestyle choice. The consumerist lifestyle of the city bothered her the most. She feels fortunate to have met Nikhil and is proudly home-schooling her children amongst Nature. She likes baking cakes and cookies, sourdough and instant bread and experiment with different recipes. She envisions to create a community here with Nature as its center.

Jayashri Chordia :

She has chosen to be a homemaker and decided to support her husband (Pravin Chordia) in his endeavors. She is the solid backbone for the entire Chordia family. She has done bonsai making and gardening courses from Fergusson College Pune. She also loves healthy cooking. She has provided the entire diet and menu for the Medicine Free Life course keeping the meals delicious and healthy.

Rajinder Raina :

Rajinder says that he seems to have lived two lives in the near 64 years he has been on this planet.
In his present life (say last 15 years or so) he considers himself to be a systems designer, an inquirer into the mysteries of life, an amateur farmer, an intentional community builder.
In his previous avatar (which he hardly can relate to right now) he was an engineer MBA, successful corporate guy, business builder, goal chaser, focussed on deliverables and results.
He has a unique ability to see the gifts in each person he interacts with. He brings out the best in people around him – with ease and grace.

What brings him to Serene?
He claims to have just fallen in love with the people, the place, the fragrance and the thriving and throbbing community emerging in this ecosystem.

Sushil Bajpai :

Sushil is one person who is nearly always free at Serene. We have got him at Serene primarily to entertain children. He is the go-to person if you think in systems. Sushil has near infinite capacity to fall in love with whatever he does with the result it is always a joy for others to just watch him doing ordinary things with extraordinary outcomes with ease and a lot of fun.

He is qualified pilot/instructor and DGCA Designated Examiner (Sailplane). His work in support of sports aviation was internationally acknowledged by Federation Aeronautique Internationale with the Pual Tissandier Award. He has taught in schools/colleges, and worked with adivasi as well as rural communities.

Serene provides him with an opportunity to be a part of the emergent community which is on an expedition of:

– Learning and education
– Sustainable living and livelihoods
– Building adaptive capacities and resilience to systemic threats
