Gift from Ganesh

Yoga Teacher Training India Rishikesh Strolling along the Ganga-road from Ram Jhula to Laxman Jhula yesterday, I suddenly heard someone calling my name. Somewhat surprised I spun around to see a little boy running up behind me and I recognized him as Ganesh, the oldest son of the poor woman I wrote about in the By the river Ganga-post.

Bonding across time and space

Yoga Teacher Training India - Rishikesh During five days in August 1973, a hostage drama took place in Stockholm during the armed robbery of one of the banks. During five days, some of the employees where held captive by the robbers and this created a term called the Stockholm syndrome.
