About Me  

I'm joining Service Space because ... I feel it gives me infinite possibilities to become a better "me" and make the world a better place to be in!

A good day to me is when ... I have sat in silence for an hour.

My hero in life is ...Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach

My favorite book is ...to many to mention...

One thing I'm grateful for is ... some of the setbacks I experienced early on in my life. Looking back, now I can say with a quiet confidence that accepting suffering with patience and faith in the universe's wisdom makes one a mature and compassionate being.

Multiple Forms Of Poverty

Jan 13, 2019, 3 comments, 16 smiles A beautiful quote by Amma -- “In today’s world, people experience two types of poverty: the poverty caused by lack of food, clothing and shelter, and the poverty caused by lack of love and compassion. Of these two, the second type needs to be considered first because if we have love and compassion in our hearts, then we will wholeheartedly serve those who suffer from lack of food, clothing and shelter.”

A Closing Cycle At Awakin Urban Ashram, After 10 Years

Jan 02, 2019, 5 comments, 22 smiles For the last ten plus years, we've had the privilege of hosting Awakin Circles at our home that people refer to as -- Urban Ashram. Earlier this year, Khushmita and I decided to move full time to Auroville, to explore a life dedicated to deeper inner work. For a bit, we managed to keep the work going remotely, but ultimately realized that it was most skilful to transition completely. So, we did a closing ceremony, "visarjan" of Urban Ashram as we bid it adieu to the Urban Ashram's current avatar. Paulo Coehlo's blog on closing cycles is helping me breath through this process. It's been a remarkable decade of hosting Awakin Circles every week, with so many fond memories and ripples of inner transformation. On last Wednesday, we held a joy-filled, final Awakin at this location. Some photos here. That evening, I shared with the circle about how if Guru Nanak would have someday passed by our Urban Ashram community, he might've said "Ujad jaoo" -- a reference to this parable, where Guru Nanak blesses a beautiful village, not that they stay together, but spread far and wide to share their insight, love and kindness.
