In his rather full life, supermodel MILIND SOMAN has worn many seemingly disparate hats, but the one common thread through them all has been his commitment to physical fitness. In the last several years, he has become an avid advocate of, and a role model for, a more holistic kind of fitness, one that incorporates mind, body and spirit. Through personal achievements like completing the Ironman and Ultraman challenges after turning fifty, and as the force behind breakthrough ideas like the Pinkathon movement and the Barefoot Marathon, Milind encourages women-and others-to take charge of their health, get back in touch with nature and believe in themselves.
Roopa Pai is one of India’s best-known writers for children. This Bangalore-based author has written over 25 books, ranging from picture books to chapter books and fiction to non-fiction, on themes as varied as sci-fi fantasy, popular science, maths, history, economics, Indian philosophy, life skills, and medicine. Many of her books are bestsellers and are enjoyed as much by adults as by children.
Her best-known books include the 8-part Taranauts, India’s first fantasy-adventure series for Children in English, _Ready! 99 Must-Have Skills For The World-Conquering Teenager (And Almost-Teenager)_ , the award-winning national bestseller The Gita For Children, listed by Amazon India as one of ‘100 IndianBooks To Read In A Lifetime’, and its ‘prequel' _The Vedas And Upanishads For Children_.
