Turning The Dream Into Reality
The force behind the dream
Liam Neeson’s dialogue from the film A-Team, "I love it when a plan comes together," repeatedly rang inside the head of our founder Shariq; he knew his idea was a sure-shot box office blockbuster.
What would you do if you owned about 28 acres of land in Bangalore filled with trees, a beautiful lake, and wildlife? Fall prey to the temptations of urbanization, or pay respect to mother nature? The choice was easy for Shariq. He chose the latter. He was taught to revere the power and beauty of nature, thanks to his family.
Big dreams require big investments. The faith that Mr. Akmal Sheriff had in his son Shariq is what made him invest in his dream without an iota of doubt. When that faith combined with the unwavering support of his brother Tariq, something magnificent was born just an hour away from the heart of Bangalore city—a place where people who love and respect nature can escape the mundane. That is what Area 83 is today—a slice of heaven within an urbanized city.
Preserving nature comes at a price; we pay it daily by keeping our surroundings pristine, and this is the reason why we want everyone who visits to pay a price so that we can keep Area 83 green and clean not just for our generation but for future generations too.
