When I first visited the property, I was completely taken away by the garden. The white bougainvillea had climbed over the cotton tree and hung like a veil covering the sun at day and danced by night. The lily’s tucked away in the corner sang with the birds and the Jackman’s Clematis welcomed you at the front gate. Of course, I did not these fancy names back then. Lynn who had planted every flower and tree was present with me and she told me her how soul was in the garden. She called it the garden of Eden at the Sunshine Bungalow.

I believe one does not buy land, the land and the creatures that live there adopt you. I was welcomed by Lynn, her soul, Henry the bumble bee, Timothy the toad, the garden of Eden and all the birds that chirp so loud that your thoughts stop in case they disturb them with the city chatter, the gentle blowing wind, the windmills that slowed down just so you could count the rotations, the rustling of the Peepal tree, and the most beautiful of them all, a full moon rise immersed in an aquarium of stars.

The land changes with every season. From a lush puky green landscape in monsoon to a dry cherry blossomed bouquet in the winter.

We remain still. Lynn checks up on her soul once every few months and Ulhas fills us in with all the village politics. Manda cooks the most amazing food and Juleh, Kaichi and Sukku bestow all their love on you.

I changed the name from Sunshine to Purrom because of my love for cats. Lynn still calls it Sunshine. You will find your own name.

Come here to lose yourself!

Being a lover of cats, it was always a dream to combine the healing powers of the feline world and integrate them with the human race hence the name “PurrOm.” There are 4 (this number can change at the drop of a hat) rescued cats on the property Juleh, Phoolan, Om, and Kainchi. They don’t BITE or ATTACK or HARM. They have their own Cat House and you are welcome to enjoy a cup of tea with them in their house or invite them to yours.

The “mothership” or the main house has many common areas for all to use including the secret garden. The kitchen is where the meals are served (in the monsoons) as well as tea and coffee. There is a music room for all to enjoy that has live instruments like Tanpura, Acoustic Guitar, Djembe, and a Didgeridoo. There is also a vintage record (that works :)) with loads of records to groove to. The view of the mountain and the windmills from our huge glass windows is completely jaw dropping.

Lynn Fernandes
Lynn has planted each and every plant, tree, flower on our property. She is the soul and heart of Purrom. Not only is her knowledge of nature excellent she also paints on rocks. You will find her art in every corner of the land. If you are lucky you will meet her on the property painting or talking to the birds or just star gazing.

Ulhas is a local adivasi from Palegaon, the village our center borders. His knowledge of the land and its history as well as local sacred chants is his pride. He is the main tour guide who takes our visitors to secret trails through local farmlands and conducts fire ceremonies with chanting that invokes the land. He smile can light up the entire garden on a new moon night.

Manda as we call her with love is the best cook we have had. Her hands have magic and we believe the hand that feeds is the best healer of them all. And if you are lucky, she will make you her special tomato chutney that will have you licking all your fingers.
