They say travelling opens your mind. I refuse to stop at just that. I know travelers that have hit the same destinations but haven’t opened their mind an iota. That is because it is not where you go, it is READ MORE
I don’t want to marry for the society, because I have hit their threshold of an age. I don’t want to marry for the wedding day, because that is just one day and marriage is my lifetime. I don’t want READ MORE

Nirvana Shatakam is 6 verses (Shatakam) by Shankaracharya on Nirvana – End of the cycle of birth and death and all the pairs of opposites that come between these two occurrings.
This particular dance was performed & choreographed by myself for the occasion of Shivratri 2017. It was on a recitation of Nirvana Shatakam by Rahul Solapkar feat Tom Alter in the album ‘In Search of God’.(https://www.amazon.com/Nirvana-Shatakam/dp/B0077RYXLG)
This dance was first conceived, choreographed and performed at Siddhabari, Himachal Pradesh (December 2016)- the abode of Swami Chinmayananda.
