It started with her losing balance whenever she walked. Slowly, she began to lose her motor functions. Then, she began to go deaf. The disease affected her vision also. As we watched our daughter wither away the voice we so loved disappeared. She couldn’t talk, couldn’t say our names, couldn’t remember us, and after a while couldn’t even recognize us. The seizures took over her life until she stopped breathing. At 2 years of age. Our children were perfect. We didn't even imagine they would be affected by a disease so rare and unexpected that people would take so long to even diagnose it. We lost our daughter to it. My son's symptoms have just begun to show. There's time to save his life. We are just short of the means. My d...

My Story: How Rumours & Gossipping Ruined A 15-Yr-Old Girl’s Life

My story
“Every class has that one kid, the weirdo, the one who isn’t exactly fun to hang out with. The one who seems to have issues beyond comprehension. In my class, that was Priyanka Shah (name changed). Priyanka happened to be my mother’s colleague’s daughter and we lived in the same neighborhood. Priyanka did have friends – they just didn’t seem to be aware of her problems. The Shahs were an affluent family. Seven years into her marriage, Mrs. Shah (Priyanka’s mother) started showing symptoms of age regression. She started acting like a child and threw fits. Her mental age was reverted to that of a 5-year-old. She became unable to do even the most basic tasks on her own. Priyanka had to grow up seeing her mother turn into a chil...

My Story: I Was Robbed Of My Respect In Front Of 8-9 Men, And No One Came To Help

My story
“Around 8:50 pm, I was waiting for an auto at the Panchsheel Enclave bus stop. Suddenly, a big car with about 5-6 men slowed down beside me. I could hear them giggle and mouth something but I looked away and did not react. Within seconds one of them aimed at me with a water gun. Before I knew it, my kurti was drenched in water. I threw the bottle I had in my hand on their car, ran towards them and yelled at them to stop, but they managed to flee. I noted down the car’s number before it vanished. There were 8-9 men at the bus stop and about 2-3 standing at a distance. Not one of them came to help. I stood there for a few seconds, stunned, making sense of what had happened. I was robbed of my respect and I felt like I had no right to my own body. People looked and carr...

The Shadows of Yoga & Spirituality: I Was Raped by My Yoga Teacher in India.

Entertainment, Life, My story
In writing this I hope to spark a flame in my fellow practitioners, teachers, potential seekers, women, and men in this world to be open to the possibility that everything has a shadow. I believe we have the responsibility to turn into, rather than away, from these more challenging aspects and hold all members of a spiritual community accountable for their actions, teachers and students alike. Specifically, our teachers are human like ourselves and are just as capable of inflicting wounds as they are to evoking healing. This is a demand for Yoga Alliance to seriously invest time and money into creating a task force that can thoroughly investigate previous and current accusations of sexual assault in the industry, and to be transparent about these investigations with th...
