Meditate Your Way To Wellness

Meditate Your Way To Wellness

Don’t begin to meditate with an objective in mind because this is against the very spirit of meditation. Meditation is non-doing. Most actions are goal directed and a goal implies a desire. A desire to achieve something through meditation works as an obstacle in attaining the state of meditation. In fact, liberation which is the […]






We’re All Mad Here

We’re All Mad Here

A minute before I was about to write this blog, I wrestled with an array of thoughts. Should I write about this? Should the world know? Is it necessary? Then I gave room to this thought: It might help somebody. And, that’s enough! I just finished Jerry Pinto’s Em and The Big Hoom. As always, […]






One Breath At A Time

One Breath At A Time

I walked into my first yoga class with no background in movement training or sports of any kind. It was no surprise that I couldn’t get a thing right and frankly, I was a bit disappointed! Earlier, my level of physical activity was rather limited to walking when necessary and nothing more. I have always had a petite […]






Teachers Who Unlock Inner Doors

Teachers Who Unlock Inner Doors

“I was never a dancer, never a gymnast, never naturally peaceful, patient or confident. I generally felt socially awkward, private, introverted, comfortable reading and studying but not talking, sharing. I never ever felt beautiful or elegant, always felt like the small girl in the corner. Then one day after many years of Yoga practice, I […]






Because Maggi Was Everyone’s Backstory

Because Maggi Was Everyone’s Backstory

  The Maggi controversy has tainted the glow of memories that were formed as an entire nation gathered to watch Hum Log in the early eighties and to salivate over a new wonder snack that was, ‘‘fast to cook and good to eat.”  Hum Log was Manohar Shyam Joshi’s seminal story about  a lower-middle-class Indian […]






The Girl Who Chose To Be A Yogi

The Girl Who Chose To Be A Yogi

Vasuda Giri does not think of the future as a magical place where all her dreams will one day come true. She doesn’t have to because, every morning she takes a few deep breaths and begins the life of her dreams. In her twenties, she is no different from many of her friends who want […]






Beyond The Brick Wall Of Depression

Beyond The Brick Wall Of Depression

This International Women’s Day, as we celebrated sheroes who have shown us how to own their power and impact lives positively, I was reminded of an article adapted from Debora L. Spar’s new book  Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection.  She is the president of Barnard College and says something really pertinent […]






Unvanquished Light

Unvanquished Light

Only last night, I finished reading Lights Out, a brutally honest book by my former journalist colleague L Subramani who has written about gradually going blind at 18 from a degenerative retinal disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa; and this morning I have this sudden desperate desire to speak to him. I manage to get his number from a common […]






My Tryst With Smoking

My Tryst With Smoking

It  took  decades  for  the  ill effects of tobacco on health to  be  made  public  and  many  nations took some  more  years  to  ban  smoking  in  public  places and  spend  on anti-smoking  campaigns.. Between the two world wars, cigarettes were  part of a soldiers rations.  There was not a single film where  somebody  didn’t smoke.  […]






2014: Goodbye To Inertia

2014: Goodbye To Inertia

2014 is slowly fading into the past as a collage of memories and we eagerly await a new beginning, a new journey through 2015. The twilight between the years is a good time to reflect upon the past experiences that have shaped us into what we are at this moment, and to weave dreams of […]






Karunashraya: Death With Dignity

Karunashraya: Death With Dignity

A single powerful thought can change the course of a life. Or many. Who would have imagined that 14,800 cancer patients would receive critical palliative care over 20 years only because in 1992, Kishore Rao, General Manager of Madura Coats, took early retirement to initiate the Karnataka Chapter of the Indian Cancer Society? The momentous […]






Why Success Isn’t The Only Answer

Why Success Isn’t The Only Answer

Success is so overrated in a world where mere survival is a great gift. Robin Williams’ recent suicide proves once again that just success is not enough to keep us all afloat and yet we celebrate success more than the courage it takes for ordinary people to keep going regardless of the hardships life throws […]
