Getting to know Dandapani (Part 1)

2. One of my favorite things about you, is I know you practice what you preach. When’s the last time you had a teachable moment in your own life and struggled with your own teachings?

What’s in your suitcase?

The year is fast coming to an end. A new year is often a promise of hope. A time when many people make plans, set goals and resolutions, and more than anything wish for things to be better.   In going forward, a good practice to adopt is to look at what it is that we…
