Dear Dr Nadkarni,

I have gone through the feedback for yesterday’s seminar. The response to the program has been 'Excellent'. Your session was reported as the best session of the seminar by majority of the participants. They have liked the format, content and the delivery of the talk. The trainees want more such programs and therein lies the feed back.
I look forward to more interactions with you for benefit of Mumbai Police.

Dr. Dilip Nadkarni could well be the next Deepak Chopra, if Chopra learns to sing!

CALMSUTRA: Now you don't even need the Bedroom, do it in your Boardroom !

Well… That's because Calmsutra is the art of "Relaxation"..!

One of the most brilliant talks ever conducted at the center, this was a roaring success with a packed lecture hall rolling in splits with the man with an eclectic wit and sense of humor, while renowned for - not just his "Mikaholism" but his accolades as An - "Orthopedic Surgeon"… The speaker was Dr. Dilip Nadkarni..

What started with poking at the commonest lame causes of inflated stress levels especially in the fast paced life like Mumbai, Dr. Nadkarni then explained so many quick fix solutions to these everyday problems, this talk really made stress look so insignificant that at least for the 2 hours that people were laughing their hearts out over his jokes, they could really put their real life problems behind, and enjoy themselves without any guilt.

In fact, when the busiest of Doctors can just shake off their worries like Dr. Nadkarni taught us, I think this talk goes a long way in teaching us what is the best way to live your life, Think and live in the present, change what you can and forget what you can't, life will take it's own course anyway…

Dr. Dilip Nadkarni was the highlight of the camp. He flew in from Mumbai to present his session on relaxation, de stress, creative visualization and affirmations. His session was thoroughly prepared for golf and for that age group. He managed to grip the attention of all the players for over 5 hrs with lots of jokes, music, singing and dance thrown in. He practiced a few breathing and meditative techniques with the all those present. I felt like I was rejuvenated and was roaring to go after his session. We were really fortunate to have Dilip who is a dear friend and good golfer himself. He has recently launched his book titled CALM SUTRA The art of Relaxation with a complete chapter in Golf.
