I teach Sociology at the PG and UG levels at a Government College, in New Tehri that is famous for the Tehri Dam in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand in India. I have worked with various NGOs for 15 years and have been in close contact with communities far removed from the urban centers.
As for my interests, I am reminded of Sir. Francis Bacon who said "I take all knowledge to be my province". However, the subjects of immediate concern to me are 'Environmental Sociology', 'Sociological Theory' and 'Traditional Knowledge Systems'.
