Live Life Lovingly!


Body never lies.

Dance is one of the most revealing forms of expression. Body never lies. Movements unmask the truth within. And that is precisely the way it heals you.

Healing Art of Expression.

Self awareness through self-expression articulates the suppressed emotions. It unravels the depths of your being. Dancing can lift you from where you are and transform your heart and mind to seeing beyond the bare visible. It reflects the profound truths within. Dancing awakens the spirit of life.

Movements matter...

Often it is the neglect and disconnect with our body, as we grow that alienates us from ourselves.

Dancing works to stay aligned body mind and spirit. It is one of easiest, practical and effective ways to connect with oneself.

Dancing regularly alleviates stress anxiety disease and depression. Dance integrates and invigorates every cell in the body and consistency is the key to great health and happiness.
Movements matter.

When you dance you sense who you are.

Personally in my life, my way to deal with lifes challenges has been with movements ranging from walking to dancing.

Post a good walk or a dance session most of our so called brewing unrest in the mind and body settles down.
Our body provides us tools through movements for self expression but it needs sustaining and support.
Our body needs acknowledging acceptance, respect recognition recovery and regeneration time as much as stimulation and activity.

Dancing movements presents itself in many forms and every form has an advantage worth exploring.

Do you love to dance?

What kind of dance is your kind of dance?

Do you feel different after dancing?

How so?

Have you experienced mood changes post dancing ?

Are you ready to dance at any given moment?

Do you need to have a particular music or a partner to get up and dance ?

Do share…

Waltzing on ice.

Can you waltz on ice?
When winters turn grim and cold
Can you create joy an cheer?
Even in moments of melancholy.

Can you see a silver lining of hope?
In the dark dreary night to help you cope
Can you see beauty in every dusk and dawn?
Letting go of fear & doubts in the twilight hours.

Can you instill trust in another & move in faith?
Inspite of not knowing the way as yet.
Can you believe you can lead the way?
Inspite of being in a maze in the now.

Clearly then you are dancing in this moment.
Clearly you are waltzing on ice.

Chiseling Along The Way…

Evolution is a matter of chiseling

Of discarding the unnecessary.

Chiselling towards perfection

Weeding out the unwanted.

Until there is clarity of purpose.

Chiselling goes on cutting through

The edges of existence

To arrive at the core of the being.

That stays true to its form

The rest fall off unbound

Leaving the essence to come alive

Breathing life into the being.

Such is the act of chiselling

To reach the purpose of the being.

Each of us helps the other

Uncover the truth of our soul.

For life shapes up

As matter takes form

Igniting the spark of energy

To mould the spirit of the being.

And spirit willing we can keep on

Sculpting… the process of evolving

For the better of the world, we belong.

Revealing the meaning of life and living.

Came across this interesting picture on social media and these were my immediate thoughts.

Do care to share your thoughts.

On Thinking Thoughts


Thinking is open to possibilities
Thought is already channelled
To be fair and square
Thinking is about the now
Emerging in this moment.


Thought is the past
Over and done.

Yet every thought matters
As it may enable new ways of thinking…
And so it goes




Until these loops form a pattern
And hit a sweet spot of light
Illuminating a new path way!

Water matters

Water water everywhere
But not a drop to drink!

We are country overflowing with an abundance of rivers and blessed with the monsoon season.
Yet the picture is grim.
Rivers are tilting the balance,  either in floods or in a draught. The changing weather conditions,  the seasonal shifts, have created havoc on our agriculture.


Common man’s need for drinking water is not met. Some states fight for rivers to flow into them with acute water shortages, some states have perennial rivers flowing.
And some have dried river beds without a drop of rain.

Our majestic  country  that stood tall in the wealth of nature from east to west and north to south is sadly shrinking in shame
The culprits are no one but us all.
Land grabbing and construction is happening without care or consideration of the ecosystem. 

Today where rivers were there are buildings
With rampant construction without ethical practices.
We may have turned the face of India in digitization and globalization but our natural resources are being drained.
With rising population, it is creating a giant depletion of resources without developing adequate measures to restore and regenerate the ecosystem.

 

Here is the truth as we stand today.
India is among the 17 countries facing “extremely high” water stress, according to the World Resources Institute’s Aqueduct Atlas. The country, ranked 13th on the list, has more than three times the population (1.4 billion) of the other 16 countries combined. And the crisis isn’t limited to the southern states anymore: Northern India also faces severe groundwater depletion. Earlier, a WWF study showed that Chennai and Kolkata were the world’s most water-vulnerable metros due to mismanagement of river systems and shrinking of wetlands. 

What can we as citizens of this glorious generous land do to help?
There are many ways to help conserve water and make a difference.

Here are a few easy checks

Close taps when you are brushing/ shaving.
Fix leaking pipes and taps.
Stop throwing garbage in nature and contaminating water resources.
Check your water usage in bathrooms.
Fix water-saving showers.
Stop wasting water.
Every drop counts!

Being human is about caring for the world. So do remember if we save water today, we are ensuring there is water left for the future.
Let us all make a difference from where ever we are.
Save water.
