Our organization is defined by the people who champion it . We are a firebrand team of believers, who have chosen to commit themselves to the vision of Grassroutes.



    Inir Pinheiro

    The man with the vision. A true believer, dreamer and nurturer. He is friendly to everyone except the camera.

    Uday Nanda

    Catalyst of our growth. Hands down the coolest and smartest yet most humble person in the room. A traveler and wanderer.

    Sushma Mishra

    Our favorite human and show-stopper. Lover and protector of animals and all things green. Too hard to not fall in love with this beautiful soul.

    Richa Williams

    Bridging the gap between us and the outside world. Made of faith, love and food. She believes in her inner child, who isn't very bright.

    Ankush Shah

    Two things motivate him - Undhiyo and big bucks. Connecting educational institutions and corporates to rural India. Our eyes are always set on his 5-course lunch meal.

    Shreya Thaker

    The youngest bannerman of our house. Usually staring into nothingness, occasionally eavesdropping. Not creepy at all.

    Tushar Khurana

    The youngest community mobilizer in the house. Extremely responsible and patient for his age. He is a fierce dragon who breathes economics.

    Tamanna Shaikh

    The one with the big bucks. Honesty and a chuckling laugh are her best assets. A superstar with oodles of drama - Oh she's so extra!

    Manoj Kadam

    The stronghold of our on-ground operations. Tougher than the rest.  

    All pun is intended and nobody is safe.

    Akshay Ghadi

    Our voice for the outside world. Extremely loving and super rich. Dedicated to laughing at all silly jokes. Eats way to much for his perfect six packs.

    Jaywant Joshi

    Rockstar of the operations team. He adds innovation and passion to all he does. He can make stress look funny.

  • Our tourism initiative is community owned, managed and run.

    This means that when you are in the village, it is the local community that has primarily facilitated your experience and stay.
    Meet some of our stars!
