C B Ramkumar left a cushy job as a big honcho of the revered ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi in the middle east to return to India and indulge in that ultimate of luxuries – pursuing his dream. He now farms a 7 acre patch of fertile land just outside Bangalore and has set up India’s first 100% eco-resort adjacent to his farm. With a menagerie of animals (including Basavaraj the bull, who gives you great Bullock-cart rides and Nihal the turkey who thinks he is a peacock), the chance to share long-forgotten experiences such as kite flying and Gilli Danda with your kids and the amazing sound of silence that you get in wide open spaces, the place has a serene charm that most of us will find enticing. Check out his resort, Our Native Village, for yourself. Here is wishing CB the very best.
