Day 4: Floor

It was a simple morning – different than other but plain and simple. That is what made it more clean and beautiful. In yoga series it was floor today. “Hop onto your mat and let’s get started”, Adriene’s charming smile was irresistible to start the day with her yoga lesson. I was expecting this floor…

Day 3: Stretch

It was a breezy day. I woke up at 5:00am and was ready on mat by 6:00am. I was totally into this 30 day thing by now. There were a million things I thought I could have done, but instead I was drawn to sit on that yoga mat and stretch. “Stretch your mind beyond…

I modified my diet – and experienced its results within 15 days

“You are what you eat”, is a known phrase I have heard numerous times before. Being an Indian, that is something I used to hear almost every week from my parents whenever I jumped asking to order pizza or butter nann from nearby restaurants. Moreover, little did I knew how practical and truthful the phrase is…

Let’s talk about Diversity

During my secondary school years, I felt compelled by society to identify myself with caste and religion, required for administrative purposes.

Facts, Concepts and Ideas – What exactly should we teach and learn?

I clearly remember my first day at school. Being a quiet girl since child hood, I prefered being by myself and was extremely excited to go to this new place called as ‘school’ my parents had just dropped me at. I knew I will be seeing new faces and talking to new people, and honestly…

Acknowledge and nurture your childhood innocent dreams

Most of our deep passions are the desires and aspirations we had when we were a young kid. Because that is the typical age when we are only influenced by are own imaginations and not by society in any way. We see ourselves and the world the way we want, not the other way round….

My battle between imagination and experience

Last year I got an opportunity to work on-site at a client location for company assignment. At such a young age of 23, it was something that I could have only imagined. No sooner did I receive confirmation e-mail after my interview with client-side company Project Director, I started thinking about all possibilities about my…
