Dinesh Valke
– ‘Saarthi’ ‘सारथि’ of eFloraofIndia


Saarthi ‘सारथि’- Title for Sh. Dinesh Valke:

Sh. Dinesh Valke’s achievements have been enormous not only for efloraofindia but equally also elsewhere. Mentioning below, some of them as quoted by some of our team members:
He has been a pioneer in giving/ implementing ideas for bringing efi to this level.
He has been posting most of his images on efi along with helping in ids, as and when time permits.
He has been compiling names in local languages for a very large no. of plant species and sharing those with eFloraofIndia.
He maintains his own site along with sharing the contents freely.
He has devoted his life for this sole purpose.
He has put all his Flickr images on Wikimedia Commons to be used all over the world with due credits and in the process of doing the same in iNaturalist.
His behaviour has been superb and most gentlemanly. We have never seen him getting derailed.
A lot of his images are being used in Flora of Peninsular India as well as Flowers of India.
A generous and a great personality and a Legend in the making.
He has great passion for plants although not a botanist by profession. And he has outstanding photographic skills and a wonderful passion to collect regional names in native scripts. He is a perfect Lexicographer. His uploads have been both inspiring and educational. His contribution to this group is immeasurable. Indeed a great contributor in all aspects !
He is a veteran explorer, autodidact or self-taught botanist, excellent photographer, the go-to person for any IT-related stuff for the group, resolute lexicographer, and a great human being and much more.
His enlightened guidance has been instrumental along with his cool and calm advice.
He has been doing enormous work, without asking for any credits.
In view, he has been conferred the title of Saarthi ‘सारथि’ of eFloraofIndia (derived from Lord Krishna, who guided Pandavas in Mahabharata- like Dinesh ji has been guiding the team of eFloraofIndia) in view of his great contributions.
A suitable link will be created shortly at the home page of efloraofindia.com.
