I don’t believe much in bios; any attempt feels continually outdated and restricting, and self promotion is so tiring. If you are here there is a reason for it!
What I will say is I continue to serve actively as Founder and Chairman of Board of Trustees of Unogwaja Charitable Trust and wear my red socks every Friday. And I truly believe in their respective roles in bringing people together and inspiring us all that we are one and have a duty to live as gracefully, peacefully and courageously as possible while we are here.
I am also a certified 300hr JivaMukti yoga teacher. The study and practice of yoga is having a great influence in my life and ever evolving life view and approach to activism to which I am deeply grateful. Thank you Granny Karin for introducing me to yoga when I was so young.
Simple but powerful words that I hope inspire you as much as they inspire me:
Umuntu Ngumuntu Ngabantu: I am because you are
Sthira sukham asanam: May your connection to the earth be steady and joyful
Breathe more, think less, you are free.
Whatever is here is everywhere, whatever is not here is nowhere
This blog presents some perspectives that I hope may spark you to question your reality and even take a step or two towards creating a new one.
A new world!
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu: May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.
