Yo Workouts !

_DSC0162-cutAs has been his practice of expressing gratitude to the Universe on his birthday every year, global holistic health guru Mickey Mehta is giving the wellness industry a gift on his 53rd birthday today.

The generous 53% discount he is spontaneously offering on all new memberships at his 360 Wellness Temples in the city and country apart, Mickey Mehta is introducing an exciting series of signature workouts that promise to revolutionize the very concept of wellness, well-being, health and fitness.

Called ‘Yo Workouts’, the wellness guru promises will be a shout, or a call, to every soul in the yo-logo2 (1)universe to wake up and take their wellness seriously. It has taken Mickey Mehta years of scientific research and new age study, a constant pursuit of what works best for mankind, to create the ‘Yo Workouts’.

“Very simply, they are based on the principles, spirituality and science of Yoga, but I have reworked them and given them a 21st century spin so that they now not only appeal to the youth who are looking for quick-fix solutions to all life’s issues, but also attend to the elderly who are reaching and pushing new boundaries,” said Mickey Mehta of his ‘Yo Workouts’.

Explaining further, the holistic wellness expert with universal reach and appeal said, “Every workout connects body to mind, mind to spirit, spirit to body… leading to wholeness and evolution. They have been aesthetically and functionally designed to address all human needs on the ladder of evolution, including fitness, health, wellness, and well-being.”

Breaking it down further so that it can be easily applicable and beneficial to every Indian, Mickey Mehta has described his ‘Yo Workouts’ as a soul-searching synergy of exercises called Flow-Yo, Card-Yo, Stretch-Yo, Strength-Yo, Ab-Yo, Cross-Yo and Cool-Yo. “Yo is like saying yuppie, it’s young, cool, trendy, it’s another way of giving the Universe a High Five,” he explained.

“These terminologies are self-explanatory, they harmoniously and seamlessly combine in the _DSC0188-cut‘Yo Workouts’ to help build the champions of tomorrow and stabilize and energize those of advancing years,” said Mickey Mehta. The ‘Yo Workouts’ are a part of the popular Wellness Revolution for Human Evolution campaign that he drives globally.

“I want Wellness to be the World’s Religion No. 1,” said Mickey Mehta, “and I will take every initiative to work towards making ours a disease-free world. If that happens, then every day will be like a ‘birth day’ not just for me – but for all of us. That’s why I am introducing the ‘Yo Workouts’. I want everybody to get energized. When you do that, your potential gets maximized and optimized. It’s what I call ‘Getting Mickeymized’,” says the 53-year-old holistic health guru whose ‘Yo Workouts’ have given him the mind and energy of a teenager.

So what are you waiting for let yourself be transformed and metamorphised.

Join YO Workouts and get Mickeymized.

A Day in the Life of… Artist, Educationist and Entrepreneur, Oorvazi Irani

An artist at the core, Oorvazi is also a successful film-maker, film critic, educationist and acting coach. She freelances as a photo editor for Life Positive Magazine and is also the CEO of Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Institute (South Mumbai) and has regular columns in film journals and online web channels. Impressive, right? Well, that’s not all.

The alumni of reputed Indian film making institutes like FTI & NFAI, Oorvazi has branched out into direction for her home production that was started by her father Sorab Irani in 1975.

After two successful short films, The K File and Mamaji which got a lot of recognition in Indian and foreign film festivals, she is now ready with her next big venture, The Path of Zarathustra. This is a 79-minute-long English language feature film that talks about the evolution of the Parsi community. Ahead of the release of her film, Oorvazi takes us through a day in her eventful life. Take a look.


Oorvazi’s day starts with experiencing the glorious morning rays of the sun and dancing to the rhythm of the waves, which make her feel the pleasure of being alive.


As an educationist she’s got to be in school on time. So by 8.30 AM she heads out, wearing the proud teacher hat.

“I enjoy my early morning school lectures, teaching film at the SVKM IB school in Mumbai (14 – 16 years) and nurturing young talent,” she says.


Post school, Oorvazi gets busy, working from home, juggling multiple assignments.

“I enjoy my freedom as a freelancer. I can dedicate most of my time to working on my independent projects,” adds the excited director who awaits her film’s release.


Amidst all her commitments, Oorvazi takes time out to pamper her maternal grandmother.


Even though it’s late in the day, Oorvazi is energised as she gets into the role of an acting coach conducting the Michael Chekhov Acting Workshop, a technique that she has introduced to India with her DVD. She strives to empower actors to use their body and imagination instead of their personal memories in the process of acting.


She believes that evening walks are a great way to stay fit and refreshed.

Oorvazi adds, “For an artist, no opportunity is lost to create art. Anything is a canvas or inspiration. Walks turn out to be inspiring photo opportunities; I just cannot resist the urge to create art out of the ordinary and seize the moment.”



Then Oorvazi gets to practising for her play. Here she explores the infinite resource of the body. “Body as art …time to exercise body and imagination,” she explains.


Her flirtatious streak in front of the camera.


She ends the day with her favourite person Dinyar Contractor and a big, wide smile.

Sam Balsara on instilling a certain pride and craft into Print Advertising

The Dainik Bhaskar INK Awards were held in Mumbai on August 21, 2015 to celebrate creativity in Print advertising.

Madison World turned up big winners at the event with multiple wins between Madison Media and Madison BMB.

Madison Media won the award for Media Agency of the Year along with a Gold in Best Direct Response Advertising –National sub-category of Media awards, for ‘Shower of Purple Hearts’ for client Mondelez. The agency also won two Silvers for the same work — Best Innovation in Newspaper Advertising-National and Best Media Planning Strategy incorporating Print-National.

Madison Media’s ‘De-MYTH-ifying Colour’ for Asian Paints bagged them a Silver for Best Innovation in Newspaper Advertising-National. The agency also won a Bronze award for Best Contextual Newspaper Advertising –National, for Godrej’s ‘Google Search on Print’.

Madison BMB won two Golds for ‘Jiyo Parsi’ campaign done for PARZOR Foundation for Best Copywriting-Campaign and Best Creative Advertising –Single ad or Campaign-Not for Profit and Public Service.

Speaking to exchange4media at the 2nd Edition of the Dainik Bhaskar INK Awards, Chairman and MD of Madison World, Sam Balsara said of winning the Media Agency of the Year Award, “We are absolutely delighted as this is a hat trick for Madison. A few months ago we won the Radio Agency of the Year, last month we won the Media Agency of the Year and now at the Print awards we win the Print Media Agency of the Year Award. The focus that we had brought about on awards two years ago is beginning to pay off.”

Further discussing the direction of advertising in Print, Balsara spoke about the expectations from the medium in the future. “Print media today, has a larger percentage share of the total advertising pie because print operates on a much wider canvas than television. If television has 30,000 advertisers, Print has 1.5 lakh advertisers. While it’s true that among the large advertisers, the share of print sharply comes down every decade, I think the number of new advertisers who are emergining in this country is phenomenal and print is always the entry point for these advertisers. Therefore, I have no doubt that print is going to continue to gain in this country for a long time.”

He pointed out that the expansion of newspapers to include various regional editions will aid in bringing in new advertisers.

“The language papers are going berserk expanding editions. As these editions expand, there will be more and more local advertising that will come into this. While Print all over the world is seeing a slow down, I have no doubt that in India Print is going to continue to grow for quite some time to come. I don’t think we should be so worried about market share. It’s important for the medium to get in newer advertisers and instil a certain pride and a craft into Print advertising so that they are able to create magic with a combination of just four or five words. An outstanding example of that is our ‘Jiyo Parsi’ campaign. My favourite two lines in it are, ‘Isn’t it time you broke up with your mom?’ and the other ‘Be responsible. Don’t use a condom tonight.’ The combination of just four or five word and it conjures up so much in your mind. That is what I call crafting and we need to infuse that skill in our young creative talent only then will our print pages begin to fire advertisers’ imaginations,” Balsara explained.


‘Cyrus the Great – Celestial Sovereign’ by Sam Kerr

Dear Friends,

Here is an interesting book  “Cyrus the Great – Celestial Sovereign”  that was released three days ago.  The Paperback that runs into 334 pages is well researched and penned by  friend Sam Kerr,  deserves a wider audience and the pride of place on the bookshelf of Zoroastrian homes and libraries.

Sam originally Sam Kerawalla of the Dadar Parsi Colony, Bombay, but has settled in Australia since several decades.  Mr. Sam  Kerr is no stranger to  most of you, as are his writings on matters Zoroastrians.

This is his first book. We  wish him luck in the first edition being a sellout


Rusi Sorabji.



It is published by the Lulu Press Inc.

Its ISBN code is 7891326284848.

Published Date 22 August 2015

Paperback in the popular 8.26”  by  5.83” format.

Here is a  brief review of the book by the publishers:-
image005Cyrus the Great lived 599-529 BCE and ruled 559-529 BCE.
The book is a fictionalized historical biography in a chronological order, inferring from the Old Testament
and other legitimate sources in the search for valid clues, including a study into the nature of a wide variety
of peoples, their cultures, habits, inclinations, manner of speaking and way of life of ancient times. The original
Avestan, Old Iranian, Hebrew and Semitic names, assisted by Greek, Latin and Vedic equivalents in the foot-notes have been retained. The addition of fictional material was done with a hope to place emphasis on his humanitarian facets, which changed the prevailing chaotic way of life to a new ‘World Order’ in the, then, known Classical World. He was the first in documented history to be titled ‘The Great’.
