You can read his articles on www.indiasutra.co.nz. He contributes as a columnist to community newspapers (both in print & online) in New Zealand, India, Australia and the USA. He is actively engaged in clearing the myths, challenging the pedestrian view and promoting the understanding of dharma through his writings, presentations and social media inputs.

He is a member of the Chinmaya Mission New Zealand, the Hindu Council of New Zealand and the Hindu Organisations and Temple Association (HOTA) Forum of New Zealand.
