Pooja Tripathi is a first-generation Indian American actor, filmmaker and violinist based in New York City. She grew up in Pittsburgh & NYC, and studied at Carnegie Mellon University.  Pooja is the co-creator of new Dutch American dramedy series Amsterdam Ave. which was created by a 90% female crew and takes place in The Netherlands and NYC. Having a predominantly female crew was an intentional choice as she believes, the industry does not provide enough opportunities for women in filmmaking. Even though Pooja has played the violin since she was three, Pooja never thought herself to be an artist. She grew up thinking she would have a stable corporate career and dabble in arts as a hobby. After working at corporate jobs in top fashion houses, Pooja realized she was unhappy. She found the courage to quit and get into filmmaking with the help of her friend Dionne. Today, Pooja considers herself an artist first, and this is Pooja's charming story of letting the artist in her shine!

Yashi, as she's popularly known, is a Connecticut based homeopath with nearly three decades of experience in the medical field. Yashi's way of practising homeopathy is a bit different from the traditional way. She strives to empower and educate families that are looking for a safer, alternative way to good health. She does this by teaching them the basics of homeopathy so that they can manage everyday ailments themselves. Over the years, Yashi has helped hundreds of families and thousands in need. Her practice was non-profit until 2017. The fee was to "Pay it forward" by supporting non-profits close to her heart. Since 2018, new families have been paying for her time, while #payitforward families that are part of the Homeopathic community continue to donate instead of consultation fees. Enjoy Yashi's heartwarming story of using her qualification and experience to make a difference in the world.

Anahata Meher is a Shamanic practitioner based in Goa. Before finding Shamanism, she was a city brat living a comfortable life with no worries or ambition. Despite having all the comforts, Anahata found that she was angry all the time, to the extent that her husband suggested she seek help to manage the anger. She sought help from a hypnotherapist, but it was a trip to the mountains that truly changed her life. It was here that her journey of seeking began and led her to Shamanism which she believes changed her very existence. Shamanism recognises and honours three worlds: the lower world, where one connects with mother Earth and the animal spirit guides. The middle world, which is one's reality and the upper world, which is the home of the celestial and spirit guides; a Shaman travels through these three levels to heal. One experiences healing through energies present in nature like plants, humans, crystals and stones. Anahata is a Shamanic healer and this is her mystical and magical story!Connect with the guests:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/anahatameher/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/anahatameherEmail: anahatalovelight@gmail.com Support our sponsor: Mehta JewelleryClick on the link and fill the form to receive exclusive offers from Mehta Jewellery: http://mehtajewellery.com/nri-woman/ Please help the voices of our guests be heard by sharing this podcast with your friends and family.

Water is the most important natural resource in the world; without it, life cannot exist. 2.1 billion people across the world lack access to clean drinking water. Marita Peters, the Executive Director of Surge UAE chapter, is determined to change that. Marita's childhood friend, Shilpa Alva, is the founder of Surge. Growing up together, they had a shared dream to do something that makes a difference in the world. Both Shilpa and Marita shared similar lives growing up. They were NRI kids who mostly visited India only during the holidays. It was during these trips they realized that running water was not available to everyone and the thought that they must do something about it occurred to them. It was this thought that later led to Shilpa setting up Surge, a non-profit organization that focusses on providing clean water and sanitation in water-stressed areas. Since its inception Surge has impacted over a million people across the world. Marita shares her wonderful story of fulfilling a childhood dream with her best friend, Shilpa and how their bond is now enriching the lives of so many across the world.

Dipti Mehta is a scientist, entrepreneur, writer and an award-winning artist based in New York. She grew up in a conservative, patriarchal family in India. But she was not one to keep quiet; she questioned everything, especially why she was treated differently from her brothers. At twelve, an All India Radio executive discovered Dipti at an elocution competition and offered her a ten-minute slot on the radio. She used this opportunity to share her budding feminist ideas.Since then, Dipti has used art for social transformation, for being the voice of those who have none, and towards changing the deeply patriarchal patterns that exist in our culture. Dipti shares her inspiring story of understanding patriarchy, breaking social stereotypes, and purposefully championing gender equality.

“Don’t you have long sleeves you can wear while you’re outside?”, “I brought a new brightening face scrub for you to try.”, “Try not to stay in the sun too long, you’ll get dark." South Asian kids listen to these kinds of comments all the time. And not from outsiders but people close to our hearts. This was also the case for Anu Kumar. Born in New York to Indian Immigrant parents, from Southern India, Anu moved and was raised in Knoxville, TN. Anu was confused when she realized that people, who are like her of Indian descent didn't like their dark skin and people who are from around the world who have much lighter skin wanted to become darker. Anu shares her story of growing up in almost two different worlds, one where her skin colour was appreciated, even desired—the other where she was constantly reminded that it was something undesirable and in need of being fixed. She talks about how she overcame Colorism, identifying and accepting her inner thoughts on this subject and working on being comfortable in her own skin.

Suzanna grew up surrounded by nature and by all things natural in Munnar, India. When she moved to the city, she quickly adapted to the city life of access and "use and throw" mentality. All that changed when Suzanna's daughter was born. She wants her daughter to grow in a world that is not being crushed under the burden of consumption. And so, Suzanna became conscious of the everyday choices she made. She found this shift in her way of living was not easy, cheap or accessible.

Addiction is a progressive mental illness. Mehek Gidwani shares her story of addiction, recovery and now living a sober life. She was born and raised in Hong Kong and had her first interaction with alcohol and drugs at the tender age of thirteen. The drug didn't seem like a drug. It was a natural thing found around the house. What started as a fun, exhilarating experience and way to fit in with friends quickly progressed to full-blown addiction by the age of fifteen. She was torn, one part of her wanting help, wanting to get better, and the other part was utterly fighting and trying to push it away. Rehab became a huge turning point in her life. Her values, how she viewed the world, her relationship with herself completely changed and she was able to forgive herself and come to a place of acceptance. Today she works as a Holistic Addiction Recovery Coach supporting people who are in recovery from addiction.
