As I write this, I’m realising that the Poi-man has not made his daily rounds. I need to fix breakfast for the gang. That’s it for now, but we hope to host you soon at Caju Grove!

Hope you've been well and rested. Before you ask, The Kokum Tree is doing good; as rewarding as ever. Summer was bountiful this year, and monsoons brought with them the discovery of a hidden waterfall. Just when we thought we had explored our pride lands, we found this little gem! Now on to other matters. Sneha and I have been in Goa since September (2022) where we began working on an old Portuguese villa. There was an immediate sense of purpose. Never had we imagined an expansion-itch at this point. Mostly because, The Kokum Tree is only four years young, and we too are still learning. Leaving our city life and jobs behind was a drastic choice, and so was this move. But then, Goa was always a dream!
Caju Grove is this big yellow Goan house. It is our current chapter. The Goa chapter. Life and times in slow motion – that’s how we see it. Caju Grove is a place of many moods, of canopied skies and sunny swims. For the soul who rejoices, it is a warm home. For some wildflowers, it is an exchange. It is us.
