About Me  

I'm joining Service Space because ... the daily dose of inspiration loaded with rich personal experiences and experiments by the members of the community helps me become a better human being. ServiceSpace is my guide to living a meaningful life.

A good day to me is when ... i am able to keep calm and get on with whatever the day has in store for me

My hero in life is ...Anyone who's been able to put others before themselves

My favorite book is ...The Prophet. It made sense at 20 years, made a little more sense at 25, much more sense at 28 and absolute sense thereafter :)

One thing I'm grateful for is ... the love and care from family and friends, and the comfort in my heart that they are always going to be around when you need them.

The Joy Of Hosting Awakin Gathering In Navi Mumbai

Dec 13, 2012, 9 smiles We feel grateful for the opportunity t­­­o host an Awakin gathering this week at our home in Navi Mumbai.   After attending a few enriching Wednesdays at Sachi’s and Mayuri’s place, we have been intending to host Wednesday gatherings, but were not sure of how we would manage the silence having our 5-year old daughter around.   To test if we were ready for this, the two of us began by sitting in silence for 15 minutes every morning when our daughter Simran was away in school and managed to extend it to 30 minutes.
