Dubai: The 35th episode of NewsKarnataka.com’s talk show ‘Sunday Celebrity’ was held on Sunday August 28 at 8.00 pm IST.
The guest for the evening was Vipula Shetty, Founder, Namaste Yoga Center, Al Nahda, Dubai. Floyd Kiran was the host for the event.
The programme was premiered on NewsKarnataka.com’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
Vipula Shetty reminisced her childhood and recalled the days of losing her father and mother taking care of four children as a single parent.
“When it comes to yoga, it is destiny. I went to a yoga centre out of my friend’s compulsion but from that day onwards I stopped all other activities like gym, shuttle and completely dedicated myself to yoga,” she narrated.
“Initial six months of leaving India was tough. But with the help of my sisters-in-law and the contacts they have in Dubai, I was able to build up my career too,” she shared.
Being a cancer survivor she stated, “Over coming the challenge is life. It is only then, we move forward in our lives.”
In the celebrity favourites segment she shared, “Each day I wake is the day for gratitude and happiness but the day I became a yoga teacher is the happiest day in my life. The day I lost my father and the day I was detected with cancer were the saddest days of my life.”
As an advice to the audience she said, “You are the sole motivator for yourself and no one takes care of you unless you do. And so do yoga and be healthy and beautiful.”
Kiran Nirkan expressing gratitude signed off.
