A couple of her other conservation films are- Integrated Urban Water Management (2021), Mitigating Elephant-Train Collision (2016), awareness videos of Friends of Elephants (2015) & Smart BIO (2010).
Her interest in film making took wings when she produced her first documentary ‘The Story of Shravanabelagola’ (2006), a one hour documentary on then historic city of Shravanabelagola in Karnataka – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pKLcOuWhiY (short version, 00:00:45 onward), apart from many corporate film projects during her corporate career.
In all her roles, her constant endeavour has been to create awareness that touches lives around her, arousing deep sense of consciousness within. Her life mantras, “driven to make things happen” and, “adaptability above circumstances” have enriched her journey in life.
