Pranayama is for Everyone

Prayanama benefits us in several ways. It regulates our body's processes, reduces stress, protects us from common respiratory issues, improves sleep and digestion and so on. It also makes one feel joyful. Learning Pranayama has two elements:

1. Some guidance from a practitioner who understands every human body is different
2. Regularity, regularity and regularity

BLOG BANWAS!

Some News Channels reported couple of days back about an Internet Blackout of Blogs in India. Could not believe it and so tried accessing this space from my home and failed. Despicable. And ill considered too, since I am still able to access this space through Bloglines.
Suddenly the India-Pak relationship on the Blogosphere saw a thaw with Indian's rushing to access blogs hosted on Blogspot through anonymizers such as pkblogs.com and its progeny inblogs.net. So much so, that their servers became dead slow last evening.

Thankfully, good sense seems to be prevailing with some reports suggesting today that there is likely to be a corrective action in the offing, not too far away. Read this ET report if you want to know more details.

Once again, hope the govt techies start focussing their energies on preventing online fraud and to make it safe for people to bank and do shopping on the internet. And please leave the blogosphere to bloggers.
