Day 87: Ayurveda (Quote a Day)

I am a big proponent of Ayurveda and yes, it is slow process but it is surely the best means to tune our 'out-of-tune' body and mind. One of the things I miss here is this from my state....

"The great thing about Ayurveda is that its treatments always yield side benefits, not side effects."
~Subhra Krishan~ 

I am not sure who this author is. Her book has some good ratings (decent). Wanted to find some quotes on Ayurveda and found a simple straightforward one. I used this picture because this is a brilliant campaign for Kerala Tourism. The link says 2012. Not sure where this campaign ran. So, see you all. Today is the last day of 'quote a day' series! 

See y'all with a new post tomorrow!

Day 86: Wings of Fire (Quote a Day)

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, a visionary and a simple and wonderful human being. He was the president of India in the early 2000's and I think, he is the only one who probably earned the title "The People's President" in every sense. May his soul rest in peace. He passed away yesterday at the age of 84. And he was at IIM-Shillong giving a lecture (guest)! Commendable and truly inspirational!

Day 84: Explore (Quote a Day)

I would use explore in a different context. Not just travel. Exploring one's self beyond what we can fathom is the best form of exploration. It is hard and we can easily get lost in the chaotic world around us and within us. Swimming out of that chaos into the silence and exploring our deepest thoughts is going to be the best thing we can ever do..................
