Currently, we have a total of 85 Keedays in our community. Some of them sing, some work with kids in the mountains, some do nothing, some do too much, some design, some make films. Read up profiles of some of these Keedays who help build webs of change and growth.
A writer, story-weaver, intergenerational, facilitator, and game designer. I currently run my game-design venture called Swacardz.
My Keeda is listening, observing, and dancing. I believe music and dance have so much to make our lives livelier.
My melodies can keep your maladies away, my voice can keep you out of noise and my heart can sing harmonies with yours. Curiosity is what drives me, joy is what keeps me alive, love is what I and you are here for, and community is everything!
Chandan is an environmental educator and Permaculture designer. He enjoys practicing martial arts and, once in a while, writing poetry.
His keeda is never-ending curiosity.
I enjoy pondering over life's bewilderment. Trying to live a life which seems well lived (to me, myself) on a death bed. Trying to figure out avenues to earn more wealth and spaces to give it away!
I love feeding people, creating art, conversations, mental health, stories, art, slow travel, cleaning when I feel like, communities, farm hopping, culture and food. .
Connect naturally with - interconnectedness, forest spaces, nature walks, movement therapy facilitation and events.

तरूण को नए लोगों से मिलना, कहानियाँ सुनना - सुनाना पसंद है। जब भी समय मिलता है वो किताबें भी पढ़ता है और कभी-कभी लिखता भी है।
अभी वो 'रंग कारवां' से जुड़ा है जहाँ बच्चों के बीच कहानियां, नाटक और कविताएं पढ़ता है।
उसके लिए कीड़ा है कि वो हमेशा कुछ न कुछ करता रहे जिससे वो नये-नये विचारों में उलझा रहे। 🌈
I am Ankit Das formally, informally known as 'banjaraa' since a few years - since I also became a 100% nomad. A social worker professionally, mostly found in northeastern India. Had no plans of starting NGOs and all, but now founder of a few.
Have been a traveler at heart and action. I had resolved to remain poor (financially) since 2017 to understand how life works in a limited income and well guess what - its amazing.

With over 10+ years of experience in the social sector, I now identify myself as a Development Communication practitioner. I enjoy discussing and engaging in matters concerning the participation and mobilization of underrepresented communities, aiming for their inclusion. I believe my empathetic nature and problem-solving skills contribute to my effectiveness in this role. However, I'm always exploring more about myself by asking introspective questions. At some point in life, I would like to be a full time cloud gazer and do everything else part-time
I experienced an early onset of a midlife crisis, where I found myself embracing various interests and becoming part of this community that celebrates exploration. As I navigate this journey, I remind myself to appreciate the process of self-discovery and remain open to the opportunities that present themselves. I actively seek to identify and explore the diverse keedas within me, nurturing those that bring me genuine happiness and fulfillment.
I'm Adil. Half hindu, half muslim by birth and just one quarter away from death. I like to rap sometimes that's crap most of the times. Ergo.
My projects include doing crosswords while lazing on an easy chair and giving people so much gyaan that it comes out of all their orifices.
The only thing I've really craved for since school is to hang out with cool people. And keeda for me is that dream coming true.
I am called everything but Urvi, my actual name.
I am an unidentified bug, hopping, skipping, trotting and leaping through life while occasionally pausing for sunsets, filter coffee and ramen.
Can be spotted trying to furiously hold a paintbrush or taking pictures of the quotidian.
Let's go for Chai!
Call me Naga.
I am part time educator and fulltime sloth bear.
I love to dance, make tea, sit in a group listening to random conversations. Currently trying to find what else I can do for kids other than classroom teaching.

Deepak Kurki Shivaswamy
A dancer who dances less but makes others dance more as a teacher and choreographer. Looking at making art making sustainable all my life.Most hard working lazy person when I am creative otherwise I am just lazy
I am a curious city dweller who enjoys spending my vacations hiking mountains and gazing at the night skies. I love to read and learn about new things, but there never seems to be enough time to read as much as I want.
I am grateful for the people who came before me and whose shoulders I stand on.
Call me Em. Or Mannu da.
I like working with the forests. I live in the mountains with Bombil, who is a fish.
I’ve been trying hard to do nothing. But it doesn’t come that easily and I sign up for a hundred projects. But I like doing everything also. So I don’t mind.
I'm Bombil, the fish. I live in Champawat, Uttarakhand where we run a community volunteering project, HaiJalo. I'm keen to work on a nature based prison rehabilitation program, although its not as easy as one thinks to get into jail. Life is busy, yet I find time to hang out with the cows and dogs in our neighborhood.
Being a passive participant of Laaife, I like to let things happen instead of making them happen. Changing careers and personalites is what I am best at.
The only three constants in my life are- love for food, sports, and conversations with Maa.
I call myself one of the bechain aatmaas (anxious souls) in the Keeday community. Slish means, one whose willpower is very strong. What a contrast! Strong will, and an anxious soul. But aren't these the essentials? I find my pieces in - Education Environment and Equality.
A creative whirlwind who loves to dance, design, cook, travel, and dive into new experiences.

I am communications professional in Hyderabad. I am keeda with a profound interest in sustainability and businesses with a social purpose.
I thought I was a nonprofit professional for the longest time, but I was just a human trying to be more humane. In the process, I learned a bit about healing and well-being for all. So now I am a weaver who weaves experiences and communities to help people and the planet thrive and flourish (a.k.a my keeda). When I am not weaving, I am a dad to a one-year-old daughter and a six-year-old cat.
I am a moody, imperfect human and a nonpracticing civil engineer consciously chosen to do only what my heart says and not what people tell me to do. I wanted to become a baba like the many mystics ( shhh! *%*$%!) of my land but ended up being just called babajee, fondly though!
When I am not busy saving the world, i mostly daydream to make this planet a more beautiful and compassionate place to live.
I am an artist and traveller at heart. I like creating safe spaces which enable awareness, freedom, choice, and boundaries, and connection with self through breath & body work, expressive arts in harmony with nature.
