"My stay at SOUKYA (From 10.10.05 TO 16.10.05)
During my autumn break in October,
I came to SOUKYA with my mother.
This is a Holistic Health Centre,
In Bangalore, where I have been before.
Here the yoga and massages are relaxing,
On the ‘Nada Padha' we go walking.
The environment here is calm and quiet,
And SOUKYA gives you a delicious vegetarian diet.
Every one is surprised that a boy my age,
Enjoys coming to such a place,
But it's good to escape from the city cage,
And watch nature move at its own real pace.
SOUKYA is a really beautiful creation,
Where I learnt about the local drip irrigation.
This is my second trip here,
And I hope to return year after year.
Thank you Dr. Mathai and everyone !!!"
