    I like the simple pleasures of life
    Sitting sipping wine watching a movie
    Laying in the pool drifting
    Train journeys with my current favourite music playing on loop
    Candy floss, I love candy floss
    Sitting in a cafe watching the world go by
    Walking side by side with no words being exchanged
    Blowing bubbles
    I like the simple pleasures of life
    If only I could like simple people
    But my heart and head always fall for the most complex complicated lot
    Do you like the simple pleasures of life?

    Chase us with sticks
    Threaten us

    Force us to bribe you
    But you cannot
    Will not
    Stop us

    In the file photo, Radhika Bose poses in a two-piece bikini as she captions this photo: I am neither skinny nor fat and FYI both those terms are offensive on certain levels. I have no wish to grow muscles like a man, nor look like a leggy supermodel. I am 5’4 that’s any way out of the question. More often women around the world are told how to look.
    Try this latest diet to look like this celebrity.
    Want flawless skin like this famous person, who probably has a crew taking care of her from top to bottom.
    Want fuller lips, fuller breasts, fullers a** ???
    Must go under the knife then.
    We are constantly told to fix ourselves as if something is wrong with us in the first place
    Have I fallen for this gimmick?
    You bet I have!
    It takes a lot to love yourself when we are often told to hate how we look.
    Now, I just love my body for what it is. It probably doesn’t fit any mainstream type but its me. I’ll never have a big butt, and that’s absolutely fine. I am good at maintaining my abs. I’ll always have thunder thighs, big deal.
    People will ask you to change your body to soothe their sensibilities. I say to hell with those people.
    Don’t let your body define you
    You define your body

    In the file photo, Radhika Bose attempts the Chakrasan pose in her hotel room. In one of her post where she looks flawless and stunning she captions her entire life in one go:
    I started dancing at 4
    I was 5 when I did my first dance recital
    I got horse riding lessons at 10
    I was playing tennis at 12
    I had an art teacher every year
    And one day I left all of it
    I wasn’t forced
    But I had to concentrate on getting that 90%
    I gave up everything I loved
    I was eventually the school topper
    Bachelors in history
    Masters in Filmmaking
    And never did I dance again
    No horses for me
    I haven’t held a racket in 15 odd years
    My art is doodling now
    And one day, I realised that I hated whatever I was doing in life
    Crashed and burned
    I couldn’t see a future and my past was a bunch of regrets.
    I started from scratch and this time I did everything I ever wanted to do
    Also, I was older, so one to bully me around
    This time there were no regrets
    This time was my time
    Every day goes by and I thank the universe for letting me crash
    Because otherwise, I would have never gotten my time
    Go find your time

    Radhika Bose really known how to rhyme too... Check this out!

    You scare me
    I often hear men tell me
    I smile coyly 
    That was the intent my lovely
    For you assume I'll play nice
    Pretend to laugh at your lame lines
    Boy they may fly with other dames
    The usual games
    But boy I see you for who you are
    Now see me for what I am
    Formidable

    Radhika Bose, also known as Yogasini has become quite popular and the most followed yogini on Instagram in a short period of time. She captions this pic: Yoga day cannot be just one day in your life. Yoga is not a trend, yoga is a way of life.
    It’s not a sport, it’s not your insta picture.
    It’s daily practise.
    It’s failing over and over again till you nail it
    It’s patience , it’s listening to your body and mind
    It’s letting go off everything holding you back
    It’s isn’t easy and it’s not temporary
    Happy Yoga day
    Let this day be a start of your yoga journey

She writes, "Never workout if your significant other thinks you’re putting on weight or getting a tad too chubby. Dump the significant other. No one has the right to comment on your body but you. NO ONE. This also includes those pesky friends we all have; you know the ones who make it a point to comment on your love handles. Dump them too. If these people are forcing you to hit that mat, I say don’t !"

    Radhika Bose: This picture was taken post puke session and pre about to collapse again. Leave a comment if you too had a similar mountain experience. I don’t want to feel alone in this. Ladakh was out of this world but took quite a toll on my body. But Instagram ke liye yoga pose karna toh banta hein, even though I exerted myself a bit too much. If you are visiting Ladakh for the first time, take care of your body first

    You are much more than the role assigned to you
    Your presence will be felt even when you’ll leave the world
    You are the force to be reckoned with - To all my female followers never forget that

    Radhika Bose quotes: Little birdie told me a secret
    If you wait a little longer
    And have some patience
    Always be true to yourself and others
    You will get your happy ending
    If not an ending
    Than definitely a beginning
    Ps- I am petrified of birds, snakes and fishes
    What animal are you scared of?

    Radhika Bose performed a handstand and had something to say about it: It took me a year to master the supported handstand, without the initial jump. I still struggle with it at time. Some people can nail it within a day and some struggle for a long time. I am definitely one of the strugglers. Everybody is different, so don’t get disheartened and give up on the practise. I know it sounds very preachy when people say that it’s the journey that counts and to be honest at times that journey is hella irritating. But once you reach the destination, it’s a whole lot of fun. Next stop a proper handstand. What is your next fitness goal?

  • Radhika Bose: The video editor who became a yoga babe and fitness blogger

    Radhika Bose also has humour to her. She says in this photo: I often get sms asking ‘how do I get your body’. Well for starters, you gotta workout and not just depend on diets. I eat everything under the sun in moderations, including a piece of chocolate a day.
    Secondly, don’t expect an overnight miracle, you won’t become Gigi Hadid after one workout session. There will be ups and downs, and days that will frustrate you. I still have those days, even after working out 2 hours a day, 6 days a week.
    Instagram fitness models should not be your benchmark. I don’t want to throw shade at anyone, but don’t always believe what you see. There is no easy way out, no quick fixes and finally please don’t follow a body type trend and more importantly don’t do things your body is not ready for just because it’s a fitness trend - enough gyan for today

    Radhika Bose quotes again: She was fierce. She was simple. She was crazy and always had something to say. She had flaws, but when she was down she got right back up. She was a beast in her own way but one word described her best…Strong!
