Currently, I am the Chairman of Raveendra Hospitality Private Limited, Managing Director of Paradise Holidays, Director of MAD Rooms, Patron for Raveendra Foundation, Board member at Mookambika Technical Campus and is a soft skill trainer. We run a homestay of 7 rooms at Kadungalloor village. We have written our entire journey as a story in Our story. Please have a look at it too.
