Hello friends,

I am Harshal Ravindra Mahajan and I am a member of KshitiZ Group the creators of I am really very impressed by the way your team has worked for the cleaning of the Tikona fort. Photographs clearly reveal of the efforts taken by your team in completing these endeavors are tremendous.

I have authored a book (A Rendezvous with Sahyadri, Snehal Prakashan), which has conservation of the forts in Sahyadri as its central theme. Currently we at KshitiZ Group are working on a project related to Sudhagad.
