Col Manhar Sharma
An engineer by education, a soldier by training, an organizer by passion, a poet at heart, and a spiritual by soul. For him work has always been worship. He joined the Indian Army at the tender age of 19 years, and went on to serve the nation for almost 35 years. He, forever remains indebted to the Army training that made him understand the true meaning of virtues such as discipline, camaraderie, solidarity, integrity, loyalty and leadership. He always turned to Yoga and Meditation seeking answers for questions that otherwise remained unanswered.

We lived in this house with our very talented son Vishal and daughter Nitasha. Life was as if absolutely perfect. Then came the year 2010 and both our children moved out in pursuit of their dreams and careers. This left us lonely and our beautiful home "an empty nest". That is when we not only opened our hearth but also our heart for the guests. And since then there has been no looking back. We have five large bedrooms with ensuite washrooms. We live on the property and enjoy the company of our most esteemed guests.
