The most dreaded piece of clothing for any woman is the two piece string bikini. It’s that barely there lycra material that exposes everything. Any other piece of clothing and you can hide your slightly protruding pooch, all those stretch marks on your bum, the cellulite creeping up your thighs but not when it comes to the Bikini. This non-existent item of fashion doesn’t let you hide anything. Its bare , it’s there and one has to be brave enough to embrace it. Women go through months long rituals to get in shape; to wear that perfect bikini they spend…

Whoever YOU are, you need Yoga! You need not wait for your doctor’s advice, your weighing scale or your stress imbued hair loss to get that yoga mat out of your attic.

I was told on 23rd July 2012 in London that the next 19 days of my life would be a journey that would make me or break me. These 19 days spent at North Greenwich Arena also known as O2 Arena, would change my life. I would never be able to experience this again and I would be one of the very few who would have had the opportunity to experience it in the first place.

For a long time I had been planning to do a write-up on my Turkey Travels from last year. But something or the other came up, and the post kept on getting delayed.
