Sreeni who leads Neelambari is an engineer by qualification. After graduating from the prestigious IIT-Kanpur he had a successful career in the automation industry for seventeen years in middle to senior management positions. His role as head of international sales took him to nearly fifty countries across the world, an opportunity he cherished more for the cross cultural exchanges than for business garnered. Bordering on forty, he quit his career and headed back to his dear little village to create Neelambari, as a purposeful vent for his passion for Kerala’s (especially Peruvanam Gramam’s) art, culture and history. The mainstay of Neelambari however is his wife Meera, who cooks delicious central Kerala cuisine for Neelambari’s guests and delights in their comfort and happiness during their stay.
