Way to go

Standard

I am all for the idea of giving choices to people to change for the better. This is one of my favorite anecdotes supporting that thought.

Safdar Nagori, 38, a leader of the Students Islamic Movement of India ( SIMI) has topped the post-graduate diploma course in value education and spirituality while killing time in the Sabarmati Central Jail. The course, which includes yoga lessons, is run by Brahmakumaris in association with Annamalai University’s distance learning division.

The inmates appeared in four written exams of 100 marks each, and 50 marks each for an oral test and a term paper on a subject of their choice. Nagori’s term paper was on the ethos of various religions. He has evaluated the commonalities between different religions. Other inmates focused on subjects like the current education system, the Gita in the modern context, science and spirituality, and meditation and farming.

Evolving and revolving! Douglas Adams & Woody Allen are my soul mates from another era. My quirkiness is an eclectic mix of Jess (New Girl), Dharma and Carrie Bradshaw. Sharing my birthday with Paulo Coelho & Stephen Fry, i'm always reading a book and enjoy having engaging conversations about life and love. I take children, wit and play seriously, very seriously. I'm a renaissance soul who enjoys yoga, vodka with cranberry and doodling. Working in the field of Education and Story-telling, there are only two things i look forward to: Knowing myself and Everything that matters!
