THE POWER OF YOGA

Yamini’s gift on International Yoga Day

Following United Nations (UN) declaring June 21 of every year, beginning from this year, as the International Day of Yoga, there has been a plethora of publications on Yoga almost all over the world in different languages.

We find most of those books, richly produced on art-paper with any number of Yoga postures by sexy looking females along with men, looking like coffee-table books. This is not to belittle their purpose and quality. Some of the books are indeed excellently produced with inputs sourced from experience and research on the subject of Yoga.

One such book landed on my table by courier last evening and being such a beautiful book, I couldn’t wait for another day to browse through it. The cover of the book is produced above.

There is also another reason why I decided to write immediately about the book. Its creator, Yamini Muthanna, is a Mysuru girl, a highly talented daughter of my classmate in Madikeri, Kodagu, who mastered the art of Bharathanatyam, for whose arangetram in Mysuru, I had the opportunity to attend. That was decades ago. Being a distinguished Bharathanatyam danseuse, Yamini apparently is using her Yoga skills to enhance the beauty of her dance adding grace to this classical art form.

Yamini, who studied Ashtanga Yoga in Mysuru under the renowned Yoga Master B.N.S. Iyengar, later shifted to Bengaluru establishing a Yoga School called simply as ‘Yoga Sthala.’ Soon people from all walks of life — from professionals to students — began to make a bee-line to Yoga Sthala. From then on, there was no stopping her from spreading her wings and soaring high in the art and craft of Yoga. She has conducted workshops at Yoga-studios in London, New York, Washington DC and Los Angeles. She gives Yoga demonstrations with different postures interpreting the Yoga Sutras. A Baba Ramdev in female Avatar !

Yamini strongly believes that if every individual practices Yoga daily, maki...more

MYSURU CITY’S AIR POLLUTION LEVEL IS ON THE RISE

A time to take hard decisions

This article is meant to create awareness on the impending danger to health and well-being of we Mysureans. Hope, it will generate an active debate and discussion to bring necessary pressure on authorities to take quick and corrective measures.—Ed

Gardiner Harris, a correspondent of The New York Times stationed in Delhi, has written a rather disturbing article in a national daily recently. He describes life in Delhi and the trauma that his family went through on account of the air pollution in the city. He narrates the life-threatening situations when his son was gasping for breath and had to be administered heavy doses of steroids to stabilise his breathing. His trips to the hospital and back was on the increase. Foregoing his career opportunities, Harris just moved his family back to Washington where he belongs to save his child.

Half of Delhi’s 4.4 million children are suffering from irreversible lung damage due to the poisonous air. Experts term the situation as a ‘Paediatric Crisis’ in Delhi. Sarath Guttikunda, an expert in air pollution research, who moved to Goa from Delhi recently with his family, advises that if one has an option to live somewhere else, move out of Delhi ! Wonder, who will shed a tear for the millions of poor who have no such option ? Studies show that Indians as a whole have 30% less lung capacities compared to the Europeans.

In simple terms, air pollution is judged by suspended particles present in the air measured in microns. It is typically judged by PM 10 and PM 2.5 levels in the atmosphere. PM 10 levels measure pollutants with a diameter of 10 microns or less while PM 2.5 measure pollutants with a diameter of 2.5 microns or less. Studies suggest that long- term exposure to fine particulate matter may be associated with increased rates of chronic bronchitis, reduced lung function and increased mortality from lung cancer and heart disease.
