In Search for Peace
Mahesh emptied his cup of coffee and packed his bag since the day’s work was done. But as soon as he looked at his watch, he realized that this day was no new and it had already been too late.
On the way back home, he gives a call to his mother, discussing about his work and how it had started getting hectic.
“Beta, I hope you pray regularly, it will calm you down.” (suggests his mother).
“Yes, mom I have figured a way out.” Reaching home, Mahesh quickly puts on his ‘Yog Headset’ and soothing chants begin to play and he soon drifts into a world of spirituality. The ‘Yog Headset’ calms him down and he leaves behind his worries of the day. This calming pause is the only thing that Mahesh looks forward to now, as it keeps him prepared for the next day.
“yog” generally means “in a state, or a phase, as in a phase of life” It is a play
on words, linking to spiritual notions associated with yoga and yogi. Yog Headset is a virtual reality device to facilitate spiritual enrichment amid hectic, Indian work culture.
