Potluck Picnic Pune
Great homemade low carb food, great company, two fun furry friends and a small hike. Sunday mornings with T1 friends are the best way to start the new year!
Coffee meetup Delhi
A lovely evening where T1s and families bonded over coffee, food and conversations.
It was heart warming to hear parents bonding over low carb recipes, hacks for school routines and more. From newly diagnosed to veteran T1s, everyone shared their experiences and learnings!
Run and yoga in Hyderabad
Sonu and I spent a wonderful weekend with our Hyderabad friends last month. We got a taste of the incredible Hyderabadi hospitality, tons of low carb treats, caught up with old friends, shared our 100km trailwalk experience, did yoga and jogged in the park...what more could one ask for? Thank you for an incredible turnout Hyderabad pals and hosts, it's always so much fun meeting you all.
School Awareness - Pune
We visited a government school (Shivaji Maharaj English medium school, PCMC) in Pune and addressed students, parents and teachers to create diabetes awareness. When we walked in the kids were having their mid-day meal, for some it might be the only meal for the day. Some kids were from migrant families and their parents work as labourers. Diabetes can affect anyone regardless of the social strata. Our free blood test camp led to two parents being diagnosed with diabetes. They have been referred to health care providers. Shout out to our volunteers, Siddhanth, Sharvari and Mini.
Intercontinental Hotels x Blue Circle
Intercontinental hotels recently invited me to conduct a workshop on 'Living your passion'. It was nice interacting with a focussed and driven group.
