Honorable Prime Minister : Sri Narendra Modi ji ,

Namaskaram ,

In your #MannKiBaat on 26th March 2017 you spoke about #Yoga and asked for suggestions on promoting it .

Yoga is a rich treasure of our culture . Practice of Yoga can help create a more calm and joyous world .

I would like to share some ideas on promoting Yoga in India and internationally :

-       Yoga should be taught in schools and colleges across India . This will be an invaluable gift to students . Studies in USA have shown how Yoga when taught to children has had dramatic effects on their well being . Children in India are currently being denied their heritage by way of an education system where they spend 15-18 years and are never taught yoga.

-       The world of today is way more complex and competitive . Children are subject to huge amount of pressure , stress and distractions simply because the world is a very different place . Imagine an army that has powerful weapons yet sends it’s soldiers to war without ammunition. We’re doing that to our children in India by depriving them of Yoga in our education system.

-       All Indian airports should have a meditation room where people can practice Meditation / Yoga / Pranayama .

-       This will help those who already practice it to continue even when traveling

-       It would inspire other travelers to explore Yoga / Meditation

-       Larger airports like Mumbai / Delhi should have larger spaces for this where trained teacher & videos to basic yoga can be made available.

-       Progressively train stations and large bus stations ( as have been recently inaugurated in Gujarat ) should also have this facility of a space where people can meditate / do yoga . This should become part of specs of any future transport space of a certain scale .

-       Govt of India can take up spaces in international airports – especially those that are vibrant transit hubs like Singapore , Dubai , London , Qatar etc. Passengers often have long transit at these airports . Mostly people shop / eat or go on city tours.  GOI can take up spaces that can be managed by organizations like Art of Living / Isha Foundation where there can be an introduction to Yoga by way of videos, Live classes by a trained instructor.

Organizations like Isha Foundation / Art of Living  have an international footprint . They would be able to arrange for trained yoga teachers in various locations . A common curriculum can be evolved so that irrespective of which org manages the space – the structure and content would be largely common . It would be a powerful way to present Yoga and India to the world . This would have a positive impact on Indian tourism .

( I have listed 2 org for the purpose of illustration . There may be several more who can participate ) .

I thank you for your vision , zeal and efforts to promote Yoga in India and internationally .

Kind Regards ,

Savitha Rao

A meeting with Major D P Singh in Delhi earlier this year sparked off a discussion on a event to culminate on 3 Dec 2016 which is ‘World Disabilities Day‘ . The idea was to combine focus on needs of differently abled people and SwachhBharat - a cause very dear to us.

We’re happy to partner with Swachh Ability Run – a first of it’s kind marathon and cleanathon that focuses on Differently Abled Persons and Swachhta .

It’s been our pleasure to have designed the logo for SwachhAbility Run.

Not only is the event the ‘first of it’s kind’ – even the collaborators are first of it’s kind : The Indian Army , J.K Cement , Delhi Dynamos – a football team , Clean Planet , Proton Sports , The Challenging Ones – NGO founded by Major D P Singh.

Join us at Chandigarh on 27th Nov 2016 all the way to Delhi on 3rd Dec 2016 to make an #Inclusive and #SwachhBharat.

Happy Gudi Padwa

 

Wishing everyone a very joyous Gudi Padwa . Stay Eco in your Celebrations !

QZ8501

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

air asia

 

Most of Asia woke up today to the news of Air Asia flight QZ8501 having disappeared en route to Singapore . Across the world people tracked the news hoping for a miracle of the passengers being rescued . That hope still burns bright . Hopefully tomorrow will bring good news about the passengers on board being rescued from the sea .

As it always happens with such flights – there are people who made a last minute reservation to take the flight . And some who cancelled their tickets close to departure . One such lucky individual was Mr Chandra Susanto who was scheduled to travel on QZ8501 along with his wife and 3 children . They cancelled the plan a day prior as his father was unwell .

‘I am very thankful to God for his mercy for me and my family. But I am so sad and very sorry for the people on the plane,’ Mr Susanto said. He also had this to say ‘ Our lives have changed. We are so grateful. We have an opportunity to be the best people we can and to help others. We are so thankful to God

Reading the article it struck me that most of us are blessed to have that opportunity daily . Just because we did not miss a flight that crashed we don’t often realize the enormity of the gift that each day represents .

Our thoughts and prayers with those onboard the flight and their families and loved ones . A real tribute would be living each day for the GIFT it truly is #Be the Best People We can & Help Others.
