How Yoga Became Popular: Know the Masters of Yoga from Modern Era

With the third International Yoga Day – on June 21st– being round the corner, Creative Yatra discusses how modern day Yogis have popularised Yoga over the years. Know how the science came into existence and how different Yogis preached their unique Yogic methods to seekers. The significance of choosing June 21st as the International Yoga Day is quiet interesting. For half the year, starting from December 21st to June 21st the Northern Hemisphere is inclined towards the Sun, which is known as ‘Uttarayan’. The Northern solstice is the moment when the sun reaches its highest position with reference to the North Pole. This makes 21st June the longest day in the Northern Hemisphere. Similarly, during the June Solstice, the North Pole…...





Ahmedabad Art Weekly 114

Monsoon has delayed from its usual schedule this year, but the fun will not at all be procrastinated from our side. The Ahmedabad Art Weekly 114 is here to update you with this week’s most enchanting events. With unique theatrical performances, thought-provoking literature events, engaging cultural gatherings, and enriching religious processions the city land’s thirst will be quenched through creativity and innovation, if not with water.

He initiated and edited several publications including Young India, Navjivan ane Satya, Mumbai Samachar, and Bombay Chronicle and produced poems, Gujarati dramas, short notes and more than ten films under the banner of Young India Pictures.

Far Distant From The Urbanization

Don’t we all deserve to take a day off from the mundane and get involved in the actual beauty of life? Leaving all the cubicles, construction, honking traffic and the hustle and bustle aside. Just to hear what nature has to say, to hold the hidden perfection in all its raw form. Photographer Shishir Desai, who hails from Surat city, the textile hub of Gujarat is in a constant search of tranquility and purity. In his album ‘Far Distant From The Urbanisation’, he has depicted the beauty of nature, that he witnessed over his various photographic sojourns.

Technology is a boon and should be used to get closer to the reality rather than losing our conscious self in an imaginary virtual world. Absorbing sun and moon rays are far more beneficial than consuming radioactive rays from an electronic screen. Talking to an animal would make you much smarter than interacting with the Artificial Intelligence. Humans have misunderstood the information and data as knowledge, have miscalculated about being bright synonymous to being wise. Let’s break these myths and get into nature with album ‘Far Distant From The Urbanisation’.
