He has worked with livelihood project under the guidance of Dr. Narasimha Reddy at CHETANA organisation and moved towards rights based work, especially, housing rights of urban poor, homeless community and labour rights. Author is associated with the Human Rights Forum for many years.

To encourage more in-depth data collection and research on upcoming and ongoing riverfront development projects in cities across India, People’s Resource Centre started the Nagar-Nadi Fellowship – which sought to improve the understanding of the current state of urban stretches of rivers in India. Through this research, we hope to initiate more informed discussion on the ongoing and upcoming infrastructural developments on urban rivers and bring attention to more ecological and socially just approaches to better manage the river-city relationship
