“By Nature we are friendly, cooperative and compassionate. If we are unfriendly, it is because of stress and tension.”
- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

The three-day ‘Art of Living’ camp was organized at the Sultania Infantry Lines from 23rd to 25th of this month. Lt. Col. and Mrs BS Gokula organized the camp. Developed by H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, these courses offer simple and effective techniques for eliminating stress, resolving conflict, improving health and living life with new joy and enthusiasm through a combination of the very best of ancient wisdom and modern science.

Throughout our lives we learn many skills like reading, writing, science, music and art, but very few of us have actually learnt the true Art of Living. We are rarely taught how to handle our negative emotions - anger, depression, stress. Yet the quality of our life depends upon the quality of our mind.

The Art of Living courses offer simple but effective techniques which eliminate toxins and stresses that accumulate in our systems over time.

They are a unique way to harmonize and energize the Body, Breath, Mind, Emotions and Spirit. This course was a combination of powerful Sudarshan Kriya with ancient wisdom, yoga, pranayam- for effective stress elimination and improved sense of physical, mental and emotional well being.

Akhilesh Chabra a teacher of these courses along with some of his disciples including Ms Ritu Alagh, Ms Deepti Seth and Ms Lipika Bhattacharya had come from Delhi to teach the courses.

Operating in over 140 countries the Art of Living Foundation offers unique programmes that eliminate stress and help individuals realise their maximum potentials. The Art of Living reinforces human values and brings people from varied social, economic, geographic, cultural and religious backgrounds together in a spirit of Service and Celebration.

Farewell to Ms M P Singh
A coffee evening was organized by the ladies of the Selection Centre, Bhopal to bid farewell to Mrs Parminder Kaur, wife of the Commandant Maj.

Gen. MP Singh. The evening was culturally loaded with a stuti, ghazal, antakshari and few games. It was quite an emotional moment when Mrs Madhu Patil, President, 21 SSB presented to her the memento. Mrs MP Singh is a highly qualified lady with a Masters degree in English Literature and Bachelors in Sciences.

She is an experienced academician with over 15 years of teaching experience in reputed schools all over the country. She is also computer savvy with a good working knowledge of Internet. She has throughout been an active member of AWWA and the Ladies Club. She has been the guiding force for ladies and has always been appreciated for valuable tips. Ladies in the Selection Centre refer to her as the ‘Goldmine of Knowledge’. We wish Mrs MP Singh and her family all the very best in life.

Did you know?
Officers should walk, stand or sit but never lounge around in uniform. Also going to the market for shopping in uniform is a big NO. Defence personnel should deport themselves with dignity. They are not expected to go around making a spectacle of them by wearing fancy add-ons. Lady officers should leave wearing earrings and long hair to the riff-raff.

Sunglasses should only be worn while traveling, take them off when talking to a senior or a lady. Avoid dangling your sunglasses from the shirtfront or pocket of the uniform. For both sun and power glasses select frames that add to your military personality.
