74-yo ex-IPS officer turns organic farmer, grows paddy & shrimp in Kerala!

‘If you protect the nation, the nation will protect you’, is the philosophy that P K Hormis Tharakan has lived his life by.

Tharakan, a former Chief of Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) has played many roles in his life. An Indian Police Service officer, Director of the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau, Chief Advisor of Strategic Affairs and a guest lecturer for International Relations, and through it all, his mantra for life stayed true.

The same motto is now helping Tharakan in his quest to reconnect with his native village Olavaip in Kerala’s Alappuzha district by adopting aquaculture farming and working with the locals.
