Rugmani Prabhakar is a poet and writer. She began her journey as a journalist writing features, news, politics, and business for several national and international publications.

She then moved into the developmental sector, working with vulnerable communities and leading grassroots transformational projects in remote parts of rural India and in vulnerable locations around the world.

She is a teacher of The Art of Living’s Meditation programs and has taught thousands of people in different parts of the world. Mental health is a crucial part of her work.

She supports her husband on their family farm on the outskirts of Bangalore to preserve and propagate rare species of indigenous seeds that are going extinct. During the pandemic, she went back seriously into writing again.

She anchors two groups of writers and poets and inspires them to cross boundaries and explore their potential through the power of both the spoken and written word.
