We often keep running in life after success only to realize much later down the line that success and happiness lie inside and not outside. "Vipassana" is a mindfulness meditation technique that was originally practiced by The Buddha which teaches you to start looking inside yourself and observe the truth scientifically to understand the key to happiness. Personal development is as important as material achievement, and understanding your own true nature is the primary key to a life of joy.

After running her family’s business for 5 years, Divya aimed to equip herself with further analytical skills through the Bentley master’s program so that she can develop progressive socio-economic business models. Divya believes in fighting odds and rising up; personal development occupies center stage in her life and has made her into a stronger person. Her story is not one about the “Art of Living,” instead she wants to share the “Art of Fighting” with her audience.
