Be it thunderstorms or strikes,sunny days or strife,Autocar Magazines reached our little haven in the back of beyond in Balehonnur.
Rohiths monthly Bible.
His passion as an agriculturist,offroader and his culinary skills are known.
Our home was always overloaded with cuttings,tyres,indeginus plants,seeds,mud,woodfired roasts n pizzas,fruits,the aroma of great filter coffee and somedays a lost rabbit.
On one occasion an injured owl.
Coffee across the Malnad mountains is some of the best in Asia.
Rohiths drive transcended through generations.
His supreme guides,his grandfathers Halase Byregowda,Devarunda Manjegowda and his dad HB Rajagopal.
Growing coffee and spices with passion,against all odds,these men have raised the bar time and again.
With a Master's in Environmental Engineering,his gentle ease with the earth extends to all the flora and fauna that live here.19 years in the thick of it all and it feels like the begining.
He works with no delusions of grandeur.
Hence the air around him always feels easy.
When Autocar India roped him into the November feature on Hyundai and some of the best single origin speciality coffee grown in India,we were over the hills🌟🌲🌟literally speaking.
Life comes full circle sometimes🌟
A small validation of sorts.
