I have been a raw food eater for about 6 years, being raised in India for a while with the rice/chapati diet and going to the other extreme of being raw. I have noticed several changes for the good and I am interested in sharing this knowledge with others. Hoping to give people a new view on leading healthy lifestyle and what the body really needs. I am conducting a few workshops in Chennai this month and also write health articles for UrbanAsian website.


Interest in health, nutrition, fitness or simply raw food.

Speaker bio

I have completed my Undergrad in Computer Science and Engineering, MS Engineering Management at USC and Marketing at UCLA. Being raised in a family constructed to be good Engineers and doctors, I realized the stressful life and the need to accomplish constantly is detrimental to one's health. I hence focused on Nutrition, general health and fitness ( AFPA certified nutrition consultant) and I am a dedicated Ashtanga yoga practitioner and a long distance runner. My goal is to be a source of inspiration to people, and to put across the point that mind and body is the only property we really own.
