I’m thrilled to have you here, dear reader.
Wisdom from the Smiling Panda is an effort to spread ideas that uplift, inform and (hopefully) transform you to believe – in yourself, the universe and affirmative action.
The inspiration comes from my most prized possession – a stuffed Panda which never fails to put a smile on my face, no matter what the situation is in my life. I can’t begin to tell you the joy this 32-year-old man derives in getting a hug from his panda. It’s my wish to be able to put into words; this joy that I feel and weave ideas around it to serve you.
I draw inspiration from the Indian epics – Ramayana and Mahabharata; Batman and Snoopy (FYI, who also graces my life in a stuffed toy avatar.) Lust for personal growth has led me to balance out my civil engineering consultancy and trading to attain a diploma in clinical hypnotherapy, become a 200 hour yoga teacher. Reading, writing, and sharing fulfils me like nothing else.
Welcome to my world! Thank you for taking out the time to read this.
