Abha Dawesar: Life in the “digital now” One year ago, Abha Dawesar was living in blacked-out Manhattan post-Sandy, scrounging for power to connect. As a novelist, she was struck by this metaphor: Have our lives now become fixated on the drive to digitally connect, while we miss out on what’s real? Abha Dawesar writes to make sense of the world — herself included WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER? Abha Dawesar began her writing career as an attempt to understand herself — at age 7. It’s a goal that remains at the center of her work: Sensorium, her most recent novel,explores the nature of time, self, and uncertainty, using Hindu mythology and modern science as prisms. “At a very basic level, writing was always my way of apprehending the world,” she has said. Dawesar moved from India to the United States to study at Harvard, and Delhi appears at the center of her novels Family Values and Babyji. But the oversimplified genres of immigrant fiction or ethnic fiction do not appeal to her. “Those looking for a constant South Asian theme or Diaspora theme or immigrant theme will just be disappointed in the long run from my work,” she has said. “The only label I can put up with is that of a writer. And my ideas come from everywhere.”
Lessons In Leadership – Episode 2 – Family Businesses When it comes to family-run businesses, there’s a common saying that the first generation creates a business, the second builds it and the third squanders it away. Is there any truth to that? Bloomberg TV India’s Mini Menon discusses how best family run businesses survive generations as she speaks to Professor John Davis, Senior Lecturer of Business Administration, Harvard Business School on Lessons In Leadership.
The Future of Recycling: Rajan Ahluwalia Rajan Ahluwalia has been in the recycling business since 1989. He is from Mumbai (Bombay) India. His father served in Indian Railways, and his mother was a stay-at-home mother. He holds a B.Sc. degree from Bombay University in India. From his school days he has associated himself with recycling, where he would be frequently seen recycling his own (and willing classmates’) textbooks. Even the writing books, he would remove the un-used pages and take it to the local Binder, who would make a brand new note book for the next year. This was the basis of recycling for him. It was when he attended university that he learned more of nature; and nature’s natural way of recycling. This study greatly increased his passion for recycling. He was always heard saying “follow or be in tune with Nature, and Nature would take care of itself.” Rajan came to Canada in 2007 to set up the first closed loop recycling plant for paper. His unique method and process is the first of its kind and has drawn much attention locally and worldwide. Although most paper can only be recycled 6 or maybe 7 times, Rajan has developed a process that can recycle paper many more times than that. His method is totally locally based: local waste, local jobs, and sells the products locally. Additionally, Greys recycling method uses no toxic chemicals, creates no harmful byproducts and is stronger than regular paper. His goal was that everyone could be partners in his business venture, and his novel way of controlling global warming. He is also reaching out to local Hotels and Hospitals and recycling old cotton and converting them into beautiful cotton paper. Rajan does not limit himself to just the paper. He is also pursuing recycling waste glass and making interlocking bricks for pavements. Coated in Titanium Oxide, these blocks will have unique air cleaning properties. The City of Edmonton is now working with GREYS providing the land necessary for this new venture. GREYS plant is located in the Edmonton Waste Management Centre of Excellence, in a unique 68,000 square foot monolithic dome. The City of Edmonton is fully supporting his project by way of supplying raw material and leasing 7 acres of land to him. GREYS currently employ approximately 60 people in the first of its kind plant in Canada and the world. Rajan is very optimistic about his venture in Canada. He says the people of Canada are really caring for the Nature and the response to his idea is tremendous. He is looking for like minded people to work with him. His International ventures are keeping him occupied today, as he is working on developing his concept in the USA and China to name a few.

Consciousness: The Missing Link by Radhanath Swami Despite decades of advancement in science and technology, we are somehow facing increasingly complex problems to solve — both individual and collective — even in the most affluent nations: identity issues, high divorce rates, unexpected violence, high school dropouts, teenage pregnancy, environmental crisis, energy shortage, unemployment rates, unstable economy, rising healthcare costs, etc. Why and where is the disconnect ? The Vedic model of consciousness that’s described in the ancient Sanskrit texts of India provides dramatically fresh insights into the root cause of these problems — and their solutions — in the most unexpected way. In this talk, Radhanath Swami will explore the inner workings of consciousness based on this model and discuss its application in the modern day context. Speaker’s Bio: Radhanath Swami is a renowned Vedic scholar, a highly respected bhakti-yoga teacher and author. As a counter-cultural young American teenager, he left a promising career behind 40 years ago and hitchhiked all the way across the world in search of deeper meaning of life. Convinced from his world travels that the fundamental problems of the society are simply caused by basic human frailties irrespective of race, nationality, sex or economic status, he dedicated his life to the exploration of solutions to the world’s problems through advancement of human consciousness. He is currently based in New York and travels frequently giving presentations and workshops at universities, corporate venues, community, yoga and cultural centers.
