Pradip Krishen

Pradip Krishen writes about trees and plants and works as an ecological restoration practitioner (mostly) in Western India and the desert where he has restored spoiled landscapes (of about 70 hectares) with native vegetation. He is the author of Trees of Delhi (2006); Jungle Trees of Central India (2015); and Abha Mahal Bagh: A Garden of Wild Plants from the Thar Desert (2019).

He made 3 films in the 20th century (that’s supposed to sound far away) and regards filmmaking as a career he has moved away from. His films were: Massey Sahib (1986), In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones (1989) and Electric Moon (1991).

He lives in New Delhi with his daughters and dogs.
