Australian Diaries.. Part 5

Hey everyone!
So continuing back from where we left.. After the Indian Party, we had few days left before the exam which was to be held on the last day of the course.

We all were totally engrossed in studies. My brain seemed to go crazy and was buzzing continuously as I read page after page and discussed technique after technique with my colleagues.

On the day of the exam everyone was nervous.. My brain anyway was overloaded till it stopped working I guess! :p

Everyone was hushed up till their turn came. We were called inside one by one to demonstrate the techniques we had learnt and to answer the theory questions asked by the professors.

Trust my luck, I was the last one to be called so till then I was a bunch of nerves even though everyone else who were done with the exam assured me that it would be fine.

Well my batch mates were right, my exam went just fine. Yes, I was asked quite a lot of questions but I answered them to the best of my ability and in the end they said I had done pretty well!!

Finally! It was over.. I was relieved...

But the course getting over also meant that I had to say goodbye... In the beginning of the course everyone was so aloof and hardly interacted with each other.. By the end of the course we all had gelled so well with each other!

You know, I hate goodbyes.. I really had a lovely course with all my international colleagues and each one of them was distinct and amazing in their own way!!

Also, all the professors who taught us during the course were phenomenal! I think I really was privileged to learn from top physiotherapists who came from all over the world and taught us. I think it was wonderful to attend the world's best manual therapy course where each one who came in and taught us added something new to our knowledge. They all are amazing teachers with lots of knowledge and humility despite their stature...  Respect for all of them!

I would specially like to thank Dr. Toby Hall and Dr. Kim Robinson,, the founders of the Manual Concepts and the ones who have designed this course.
Me with Dr. Toby Hall and Kim Robinson
Me with Sam.. Amazing professor

Me with Michael Monaghan and Indian colleagues
I think this course gave me something more than practical knowledge. After meeting colleagues from all over the world from countries like Japan, Cambodia, Italy, England, Ireland, Canada, Romania, Korea and of course Australia and a few fellow Indian colleagues too,  I think my perspective towards life has changed. I think it's great to meet people from different backgrounds and interact and learn with them..  It has made me more aware about how different life can be in different parts of the world..

yes selfie mania continues!

Also I had the most crazy, funny and amazing roomates ever- four Italians and one Indian. A special mention to all 5 of them- Andrea Sgambati, Marilena Sfrecola, Sonia Lottini and Raffaele Caradini and yes Manshi Chheda..

It was too awesome meeting all of them and I enjoyed, fought, discussed and learnt a lot from them all during one month!!!  And yes, they played like the most silliest pranks on me during our stay!! It was a tough thing to say goodbye to all of them!
A shout out to my Indian colleagues and now friends Minakshi Fullara, Lakshya Sharma and Saurab Sharma!

I am so grateful to the Almighty and the people back at home without whom I wouldn't be where I  am today..
So finally I get the certificate!!

I guess life is a journey in itself and I am glad that whomever I met on the course were a part of my life's journey!
I wish all of you the very best in life!

Hope to meet you all somewhere, somehow once again!!!

Till then,

Dream. Imagine. Be Crazy. Be You.

Au revoir!

Prema's Journey...

Hey everybody! Today we have a very special person with us.

Meet Prema Malhotra.  Prema lives in the United States of America along with her family. She has two brothers.
She is just like everyone of us. A slight difference is- Prema was adopted when she was a child.
Prema has willingly agreed to open up to us & share bits of her life.
Let me tell you, after Prema came to know that she was adopted, her thirst to search for her original parents started. She travelled from USA to India, in search of her roots. She came to know that she was relinquished by her birth mother two days after her birth.
The reason was that her natural mother was abandoned and left alone by her natural father. Later on she was adopted by her current father & mother.  Prema then started to feel that she really should meet her birth mother.
The struggle Prema went through to search for her birth mother is something one cannot explain. Did she then, meet her natural mother??? She has done extensive resea…

Gaurav Ghatnekar - A candid interview with a gifted actor!

Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together to welcome none other than Gaurav Ghatnekar! Today we have with us a handsome hunk who is a talented Marathi and Hindi actor, famous for his movies like "Tujhi Majhi Love Story" and shows like "Tuj Vin Sakhya Re" among many others. He
has recently been essaying the role of Lord Krishna to perfection in a popular Hindi show called Dharmakshetra on Epic Channel.

Back after a game of squash, in a candid chat with me, he answers some of my questions-

Me: Have you always wanted to be an actor? What made you decide that you want to be an actor?
Gaurav: When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a lot of professions. One day I would want to be a bus
conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…

4 simple ways to get out of the Comfort Zone.

Hello everyone!
So it's the first blog post of 2018! It's already been almost two months into the year and I hope the year is going good for all.

  I would like to bring to you 4 very simple ways to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

What is the comfort zone?
A comfort zone is a zone for each one of us where we feel safe or at ease, where we use only tried and tested methods which can yield only the same type of result.

Why get out of it?
Getting out of the zone, means essentially adding more value to your life, growth in terms of personal and professional life. It basically means expanding your horizons, facing your fears and doing something you have not done before, to make your life more meaningful than it is now.

In fact, writing a blog post on something like this, is me getting out my comfort zone as well, because it's different from what I usually write.

Here I am sharing with you four effortless yet significant ways to change the way you perceive …
