I am Dr. Krishna Mohan (krishi as I am affectionately called). I am a surgeon practicing at my own hospital – Prabhu Hospital at Moodabidri along with my wife Dr. Radhika Prabhu. I live at Moodabidri in my home Akruthi along with my wife and daughter Neethi.

My varied interests include trekking, mountaineering, wildlife conservation, photography, classical music, computers and Internet. I was a member of the team of 1990 Expedition Brahma I, to scale 21,050 feet of this world’s 17th toughest peak on western Himalayas. I am also member of Arohana, mountaineers and adventurers, Mangalore.

I served for World Wide Fund for Nature in 1989-92 and conducted innumerable nature camps for young nature enthusiasts at Mudumalai, Bandipur, Nagarhole,& Bhadra wild life sanctuaries. Now I am an active member of Wildlife First. I am the founder member and the presently secretary of the CyberForum Of Mangalore, the organization responsible for getting Internet connectivity to Mangalore & Udupi districts.

We have a 2500 member strong and very active photo critic forum on Facebook which will help in learning photography as well as critically analyzing and improving photos.

This year I started a new venture called Creative Focus. It is an unique idea helping aspiring photographers to gain knowledge of Photography using one-on-one workshop. You will gain a clear & concise understanding of skills and technique behind the art of Photography. Sharpen your skills as well as refine your technique with our exclusive hands on workshops specially catered exclusively for you, keeping in mind your experience, knowledge and your needs. Our workshops are held in a compact environment with not more than six participants, so each one can interact as well learn the techniques hands-on.

    Thank you

  11. It was nice to hear from you. Thanks a lot for visiting my site. Great to know that you too are a physician. My blog is one way of teaching photography. I mention how I took photograph along with tidbits on the subject at hand. Also if you check larger version of the photos by clicking on them you can find out detailed information on the parameters I used to take the photograph. Buy a nice cheap camera and start using it and that is the best way to start learning.

  27. Hi Sir,

    how are you?
    I wanted an information. Is there any museum on insects in your area or in your surroundings? We are planning for a trip with PU students, so if you know about it kindly inform about the same.


  28. Dear Pavan,
    There are no Museum on insects nearby. In fact the only museum we have nearby here is in Mangalore. Called Bejai Museum (Seemanthi Bai Government Museum) is the only museum of city and links contemporary Indian history with the 16th century. It is named after the mother Seemanthi Bai of an officer V.R. Mirajkar of British Raj.

    Through the collections of ancient and foreign coins, some belonging to British East India Company and Pakistan, and stylish paintings among others the museum provides a immense knowledge about the Indian history and heritage. This museum is very valuable for the researches as it houses an asset of metallic icons, statues, lamps and inscriptions made out of copper. Copper inscription containing the verses of Keladi Venkatappa Nayaka, dating back to 1624 AD is the one major draw here.

  37. It’s indeed great to see a Doc interested in Nature and photography. Your photographs have excellent clarity, color coordination and perfect light effects. Considering Doc’s life very busy, How do you get time to pursue all these interests?
    I am also from DK, Udupi and GSB too.
    I would like to meet you sometime when I am in Udupi.

    Thanks & Regards
