We 9 families qith kids on thw.Range 1 to 15 years stayed in rasa Gurukul on Dec 27th for a night. Had a really transformative experience at the banks of chalakkudy river.
The owner of the place is mr Das Sreedharan, a successful London based restauranteur and cook book writer. Rasa Gurukul is the fruition of his vision and years of hard work to have people experience the wholesome life where the central role is played by the kitchen where food is prepared with love from local fresh produce.
Combine that with the beauty of chalakkudy river and re-creation of a village where a cowshed housing 5-6 different Indian cow varieties, a vast farm land where vegetables and fruits grow abound, and array old country crafts like blacksmithy, pottery, bull powered coconut oil press, bronze vessel molding etc can be experienced.
He took his vision of a place where man lives close to nature and thrives on natural abundance and made it a reality thru rasa Gurukul where a bunch of selected students are trained in the art of cookery yearly where they stay at the place and learn in the ancient Gurukul tradition of India.
To top off this, an ayurvedic clinic and a yoga teacher and dedicated staff whose full focus is to make you experience the goodness of wholesome food made with love, with cultural programs like mohiniyattam, ottanthullal and gazal all by professional artists made our stay a rich and satisfying experuence.
When one think about the destruction of earth thru human greed, people like Das with their amazing talent of vision and execution prowess still gives us hope that all goodness in the world is not lost.
A dedicated staff led by mr Satheesh made sure every little need was taken care of.
While driving back, my 12 year old son told he will write a review of the place himself....
