I was born and raised in New Delhi, India. I moved to New York as a young adult, to work at Time magazine — and I never returned to live in India. I grew up in a household where one of my uncles practiced yoga, much to the entertainment and delight of the children in the household, myself included! My uncle would search for calm as he stood on his head, and we would bend over and peer at him in what struck as as an odd way to greet the day!
We have lived in the Mount Washington Valley for nigh on thirty years. I have practiced yoga for many years, and it has brought calm and grace to my life.
