Rooted in nostalgia
The play Adrak takes place over a few telephonic conversations, and draws from the liveliness and immediacy of what could be just a regular phone call. However, the essence of the plot is the flash of introspection that hits one soon after a conversation ends. This is the story of three characters: Nischay, Vikrant and Anokhi. All of them, with little hope in their present, try and dig out the nostalgia of their shared past.

Parul Khurana, 36 Sleep Yoga Coach
AVAILABLE FOR: Sessions and workshops
Charges: Rs 1,000 onwards
Imposing a regimented sleep cycle using the ancient philosophy of yoga has been a part of Parul Khurana’s life since she was 21. Through her online sessions and in-person workshops, the sleep coach aims to help people reset their natural sleep cycles to improve their mental and physical health. Her approach includes coupling the ujjayi breathing with sudarshan kriya yoga asanas. “Every individual has a natural sleep cycle that ensures rejuvenation and repair, but our lifestyles disrupt it,” says Khurana, adding that overthinking is the most common disruptor that affects sleeping patterns to the extent that it impacts overall health.
RECOMMENDED BY: Rishabh Khattar, 38, businessman, says, “I attended her sessions online during the COVID-19 lockdown, and that turned out to be the best decision of my life. I continue practising what she taught regularly, and that has benefited me immensely. Working on my sleep cycle improved my work life, and my bond with my wife, family, friends, and relatives.”
