I’m Vaidurya, a scientist who works to unravel the biology behind plant life. I love reading and have pursued a career in science for a span of more than a decade while living in Japan, South Korea, Czech Republic and Germany.
For me, plants and family history have always kindled my interest and no amount of time I spend researching these topics tires me. While I built my career on the first one, the second has motivated me to create this platform. However, these aren’t my only passions. I love travelling, learning about animals, birds, history of science and interacting with people.
I have been pursuing them for a long time now. Honestly, I have been gathering data about my family since I was in college. Maybe because there was so much I could read and know being born in one of the oldest lineages in India. The lineage of Mayura Bhatta.
The Sahis have a recorded genealogical history of 117 generations of kinship, with Tamkuhi as their capital for more than 250 years.
Using this platform, I would like to talk about the nobility in Modern India and how times have changed. Being born with a silver plated spoon rather than a silver spoon, I consider myself to be in a position to deal with the intricacies.
My grandparents were the last to have experienced and lived in the era of royalty, while times changed starting with my father’s generation. Though it didn’t perish, it wasn’t exactly what it used to be. My generation only had the chance of experiencing the remnants of the romanticised era.
It will be my endevour, through this website to showcase that charm along with the changes. With a team of editors and writers, I will take you through my writings to the battlefields. Tell you stories about hunting expeditions. Explain you the customs while serving you the recipies of royal food. There will be a riot of emotions involving love, ego, self respect, compassion, hatred & cruelty and I hope you find it engrossing if you are curious to know about the House of Raj Tamkuhi and Anapur.
