Of stories that celebrate health and nature
- February 8, 2019
NEW DELHI, India, February 6, 2019/- You can turn to books for everything –life advice, motivation, and for exploring new worlds. Unfortunately, in the times that we are living, the touch of the book has been replaced by the touch of smartphones and electronic tabs.
Today, we are in the grip of technology and though we may have come closer than ever in the virtual world, in reality, we have become disconnected from our loved ones and from our own selves.
Impinging on the significance of nature in our health, well-being and happiness, Mr. Gurdip Hari, launched his book titled Go Back to Nature and Heal Your ‘Self’.
Talk by Author, Mr. Gurdip Hari: “24/7 we are sitting in front of our screens. Why do we want to live in a virtual world – an imaginary and artificial world? Why don’t we go back to nature when we know that it is this artificial world which is giving stress to our minds and causing further problems?”
The book was launched in the presence of H.E. Mr. Michael Aaron N. N. Oquaye Esq (Jnr), Ghana’s High Commissioner to India. Welcoming the High Commissioners and Ambassadors of other High Commissions in New Delhi, H.E. Mr. Michael Oquaye, reiterated how technology has altered the way we live our lives and brought drastic lifestyle changes.
He said, “We can’t always be staring at computers and doing things in the concrete jungle. We are all victims, all of us. The way we eat, our lifestyles, behavior, from air-conditioned house to air-conditioned cars to air-conditioned office to air-conditioned hotels, every aspect of our lives is affected.”
Talking about Indo-Africa relations, H.E. Mr. Michael Oquaye added, “Indians in Ghana, or Africa for that matter, have a very long history. We are talking about relations that go back to 100 years. Ghana wants India to see Africa as lifelong partners.”
The intellectual high-tea saw the congregation of ideas on how to back to nature and heal ourselves and was attended by dignitaries of the Indian business community and esteemed members of the African High Commissions in India.
