ASIA PLATEAU

Nestling in the western hills of India and overlooking the Krishna Valley lies Asia Plateau, a centre for introspection and dialogue. Over the past five decades ordinary men and women of all classes, races and religions have experienced here, a change in attitude, motivation and behaviour causing ripples in their personal lives, families, workplaces, communities, and sometimes much beyond.
