    Namaskar Guru Hansaji.
    I was so happy to see your picture in the airlines magazine on one of my flights.

    Then began my journey down memory lane. I was a student of first year BSc in Ruia college ( 1982)when I joined the Yogendra institute at Bandra to learn yoga. I was very impressed with you and your fitness mam, and so am now to see that you look as young and fit.( Wish I too could be like you.)

    I am looking forward to meeting you when I come down to Mumbai.

    Yours sincerely,
    Meena Sharma.

    I am an exponent of Yoga in daily routine. Towards this end, we started Yoga in our Colony (AWHO, TYAGI VIHAR, LUCKNOW) on 21 Jun 2015. We are well into our fourth yr of Yoga without even one day’s break. No Sundays…. no holidays. No New Yr…. No Holi Diwali. Yoga if done with regularity & tenacity, it pays great dividends in the form of creating balance in us. It feels very nice to read about Ma Hansa. May God bless her with longivity n grace for eternity !
