Arun Deshpande

Vasundhara Sanman

He is an experimenter farmer, agricultural engineering scientist, and science and appropriate technology communicator. He has set up a ‘water bank’. It is just a tarpaulin-lined storage tank spread across 5 acres. The tank holds more than 5 crore litres — enough for all the members for two summers. He has worked on many other projects related to sustainable lifestyle that include agricultural equipment and farm machines, water management ideas and a permanent exhibition on energy besides his experiments on sustainable housing.
