All the Self-Help books do magic provided  you scrupulously follow their principles with a firm resolve.

I had seen  Gopi Kallayil’s  first You Tube video in March, 2013. His lecture  discussed how  we addict with technology, especially with internet and cursed with a continuous partial attention.

In continuation of his efforts to guide people to live a conscious life, Gopi brought out this amazing book called The Internet to the Inner-Net : Five Ways to Reset your connection and live a Conscious Life   and it has all the necessary ingredients to guide a person for a rich inner life.

Gopi belongs to Kerala, but after studies he went to US in search of a  job and currently he is Chief Evangelist,  Digital Transformation and Strategy at Google.   The book is a technologist's solution for vibrant inner life .

When he imparts yoga training to Googlers, he calls them  yoglers.   He says that the most sophisticated technology is already within you. In response to  his fast-paced professional life, Gopi found his own solutions and this book is the summation of what he progressed on the path of Enlightenment.

The book offers tools to integrate your inner and outer worlds.   In one word, it is a must read book for  those who want to strike a balance between their personal and professional lives.

My eyes take special attention on the walking path where these ants crawl.  When I see them in close sight, I wonder about the marvelous functioning of their brains to change direction immediately on sensing the sounds of walkers.  But the walkers crush these ants mercilessly  which is deplorable.

Even to make a tiny robot of this sort, imagine how difficult it is for our scientists to take complex calculations in programming and to find suitable material in the making. But creating these ants or tiny creatures is an effortless spin for the Guy who is sitting up above.

The very awareness of human limitations must make us to realize that there is a Power beyond our comprehension and each one of us must explore this area individually!

Beauty lies in the looks of beholder;

If you have a pair of creative eyes,

everything in Nature looks like a poem.



We generally put financial goals but health goals should override all other goals in life.

When it comes to health, it is this great Guru of Yoga - B K S Iyengar, who lived a fruitful and disease-free life of 95 years.

To reach to the level of perfection in Yoga like Iyengar, one must be a born yogi.

Iyengar through his yoga teachings spread the lamp of awareness on health to millions of lives which include the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin in1950s. Menuhin factor helped a lot to Iyengar to spread his wings in the West. His celebrity disciples include Queen Elisabeth, the Queen Mother of Belgium who showed interest to learn yoga in her eighties. Even teaching to the royal woman, Iyengar did not compromise his style - to take the full charge of body of disciple to impart the error-free yoga postures with equal stress on mind.

We have very rare gurus like Iyengar. He should have lived little longer to serve the humanity. But, in nature, everything has its own exit date and it was Iygengar's turn to pack up his earthly sojourn.

When you see his life, it is apparent that he scored so high in life in terms of personal achievement as well as great service to the humanity. May the yoga live longer and its fruits reach to each and every individual on the planet!
