Has lived like a free bird who could not be caged by the worldly compulsions. Loves to travel and pursue photography, passionately; supports nature conservation zealously. Meandering around like a snake, knowing no boundaries, Suresh makes anyone envious with his life style and the life he has lived. Spirit of outdoors and adventure got him to the army, but again hung his boots to explore `Life’ unconditionally. A man with courage to live life on his terms, which most people find difficult in India. Suresh has dedicated his life to the pursuit of photography as a passion, which he is exploiting as his tool to disseminate awareness about nature conservation and snakes. He has a kaleidoscopic repertoire with an adventurous zest for life – having crossed the half `century mark’, connecting the dots of his experiences gives value addition to his knowledge which has now distilled into wisdom. After facing brutal combat situations as IPKF member in the jungles of Sri Lanka he took to wildlife and is an acknowledged expert on snake photography

He has championed many social causes including looking after disabled soldiers and finding habitats for snakes lost in the concrete jungles of urban areas, educating people about `snakes & snakebite’, all self-funded. His wife Rajbir , a qualified homeopathic doctor, is a soulmate who juggles motherhood with the life of adventure as a team member. Their lives have been enriched by their shared experiences and has supported each other through their common passion, from handling snakes for the photo-sessions of Captain.

The couple has now founded the `GREEN DOT EXPEDITIONS’ to take you to exotic locales where you shall network with world class enthusiasts and freeze frames of your experiences with photo souvenirs to remind you of the wonderful exploration and learning experience for life time.

Colonel Ajay Kumar Raina, Sena Medal

(Planning & Special Ops)

A decorated soldier, a record holder rider, a published author and a successful entrepreneur- some of many dimensions that define Colonel AJ in very basic cognizable terms. Beyond such visible and well documented traits, is a person who comes across as an easy, happy-go-lucky kind of a man who is equally comfortable consuming a formal seven course meal as well as eating stale food straight from a rolled tissue paper. Now out of his uniform, he is a successful entrepreneur in the tourism industry.

From Mountaineering to snow skiing to river crossings to parachute flights to balloon rides to high altitude off-roading, he has done it all. He, along with his spouse and two years old daughter were mentioned in Limca Book of Records (2011) for triple riding across all major passes in Ladakh without any back up support. As a couple, they rode across Marsimek La, then the highest motorable pass, in 2009. He was awarded the fourth highest peace time award for bravery for his gallant military action in 2005. At a very young age of 43, he went back to a reputed business school to earn two years full time MBA in Finance and came out as the topper of the course.

He is a freelance blogger and a writer with four published books to his name. His experience of more than 27 years in Army, his qualifications in academics and his passion for travel and hosting, all together, make him a worthy member of our team of professionals. He possesses mastery over camping, rescue, survival and hospitality at offbeat locations with or without any supply lines. He is sure to be our man Friday if and when we are put to some real 'beyond the world' tests in the field.
