Travel is one of the deepest medicines for growth.
Foreign lands open us to new experiences and awaken new aspects of ourselves in the process.
We’re faced with diversity in historical imprints, geography, languages and cultures — we are asked to see with both curiosity and compassion, the different ways of being from a place of neutrality.
It forces us out of our comfort zones, and reminds us that sometimes the healthiest thing is to get lost and not know (to let go completely of our expectations and even identities) and lean into trusting ourselves and the world around us.
And in the midst of the mystery and challenges, we share new types of exchanges.
We to open up and ask for a helping hand when we need it, humbling ourselves and honoring our ignorance in the process.
And more often than not, we’re guided with a smile and positive encouragement.
The Universal goodness of humans becomes real in these moments and it fills our hearts with a tenderness that can feel so familiar.

Dong~dong~dong!!! The sound of the ghatam makes me feel so joyful and peaceful.
Once I saw people practising yoga with ghatam music. So I started to do yoga too.
Yoga is my favorite activity now ! I am a part time yogi!
As opposed to developed countries, where the percentage of skilled workforce is between 60% and 90% of the total workforce, India records an abysmal 4.69% of workforce with formal vocational skills (as per the 2016-17 Annual National Skill Development Report by Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Govt. of India). Pratham launched its vocational training program in 2005 to train youth from economically disadvantaged backgrounds between 18‐25 years and provide them with access to employment and entrepreneurial opportunities, thereby addressing India’s growing need for skilled manpower.

I remember, when I was little and asked the elders about my birth, they told me I came because they worshipped a God I don't know of... Or found me on a street side and adopted me... Why people fear and ashamed of Truth... Maybe it's a feminine nature of feeling ashamed about the physicality... But who cares about the twists... I need truth for my survival... That Truth which is ecstatic and blissful, Unmovable and permanent beyond time... Now when I am there with #sambho, the graceful one and who dances in the cremation ground ecstatically, what do I now have left to do with this worldly good and bad things... #innercalling#world#birth#india#shiva#sambho#realization#truth
Naval ensign of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya (1977-2011)- I think that it is important to realize that for 34 long years, Libya had to be represented by the pitiful flag shown on slide 2. It looks like Jamahiriya just took a leaf, said it’s their flag, and called it a day. Also, from 1977-2011, there were no other countries with a single colored flag. There have been many empires and societies that have used a single colored flag, but they were all very old compared to this one. Since it’s relatively new, we are able to see a wonderful naval ensign born from this sad, sad flag. This is only my second naval ensign; my first was the Italian one. I have already posted Libya 1977-2011 btw. If I wasn’t aware of what the Libyan flag (1977-2011) flag looked like, I would think that this is just a regular canton flag. The blue and green look nice together, and the anchor is okay. I will give this flag a

Nihari is a slow-cooked meat stew popular in Pakistan and parts of India, usually made with boneless beef or lamb. The dish is often topped with ginger juliennes, cilantro leaves, fried onions, sliced chilis, and squeezed lemon, and it is served with naan or rice.
In order to make the meat as tender as possible, nihari is cooked in large pots for several hours, even overnight in some cases. It is common to include bones in the stew for additional flavor from bone marrow, resulting in a rich and mouthwatering gravy.
According to most accounts, nihari originated in Old Delhi in the late eighteenth century during the Mughal Empire. The name of the dish comes from Arabic “nahār”, meaning “morning”, indicating that nihari was originally a breakfast food (though it is now normal to eat it for any meal of the day). Muslim noblemen who could afford the meat for it are believed to have originally developed nihari for their morning meal. Because the dish is hot and rich in nutrients and protein, it is considered beneficial for health and for increasing one’s energy and warmth, especially in the winter. Nihari was sometimes served to laborers under the Mughal Empire for this reason, so that they would be able to work diligently in construction projects and other tasks.
In recent years, nihari has become extremely popular as a signature Pakistani dish served in restaurants all around the world.
