Ayurveda for anti-aging

Age is just a number, if we understand the concept Ayurvedically. Bharat Savur, co-author of the book ‘Fitness for Life’ explains:

Ayurveda, a medical system developed by Rishis like Charaka and Sushruta ages ago, has been languishing after the onslaught of modern medicine until foreign visitors to India discovered its healing power.

Kerala Vaidyashala has its roots in Aluva near Kochi, where Harshjeet and Vishwajeet's father Ramachandran Kuroop practiced ayurveda. In the late nineties, the sons expanded by setting up a chain of therapy centres.More...

Goa planning a spruce up?

India’s most popular tourist destination these days is pitted against Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Sri Lanka, which are preferred destinations for many international tourists. Goa is now looking for private players to develop projects on a public-private partnership (PPP) model.

“We need to create better facilities and provide more than just beaches for tourists. If anybody has an idea, then I invite them to come and talk to the government. We are keen to develop such facilities,” said minister for tourism Francisco Xavier Pacheco. This includes a proposal to set up amusement parks, a golf course and even promote medical tourism, all of which attract a holidaymaker to come again to Goa.More...

Shovana Narayan's kathak - Yudhishthir and Draupadi

Yudhisthar and Draupadi

The dance-theatre 'Yudhishtir and Draupadi' has been performed several times, not only in Delhi but also in Nepal, Punjab and Kerala. It has won raving reviews all over. This production, even though based on an event in one of our great epics, 'The Mahabharata', yet is so contemporary, as it explores various facets of human nature. It could be the story of any person; it could be articulating the innate unsaid feelings of a person. It makes a person think, laugh, sympathize, enjoy but above all …..  it talks about relationships which are eternal  ….  traditional yet so very modern! More...
