Capt Suresh Sharma & Dr Rajbir Kaur : Founders & Team Leaders Ops
Capt Suresh Sharma is fondly addressed by friends as`CAPTAIN’, is the one who has given shape to his dreams and has lived with them … accrued the traits of a true leader. 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. 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 authority 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’, self-funded. His wife Rajbir , a qualified homeopathic doctor, is a soul-mate 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. His creativity has been acknowledged through the Rashtrapati Bhavan (Presidential Palace) down the corridors of diplomacy in various embassies down to the Bombay Natural History Society and the National Geographic. Capt Suresh Sharma has made numerous presentations at the Indian Institute of Management (Ahmedabad), National Institute of Designing, medical colleges, national parks, universities, Wildlife Institute of India, etc.
Suresh and Rajbir custom built a caravan for their work and has clocked more than 125,000 kms with family & friends in their home on wheels, called KINGCOBRA, for almost 14 years – an unparalleled feat for any Indian in India. 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.
