Guest speaker Nithya Shanti to speak on "Taking the Big Leap: How I left my job and followed my calling of being a forest monk."

Nithya Shanti is an internationally respected spiritual teacher, seminar leader, writer and educator, committed to sharing practical wisdom teachings for happiness and enlightenment with people in a joyful and transformational way. 

Nithya completed an MBA from XLRI, Jamshedpur and then worked in the corporate sector. Despite having a promising career, he was drawn to pursue his spiritual quest further. In 2002, he ordained as a Buddhist Monk. After six years of living in forest meditation monasteries in Thailand, Sri Lanka and also various parts of India and the US, he was guided to live, learn and serve in broader ways than the traditional role of a monk permitted. With the blessings of his teachers he stepped out of the robes in early 2008 and now shares joyful teachings in happiness joyshops, youth programs, corporate trainings and meditation retreats around the world.

Asha : we can add twitter hash tag #rodinhoods #rodinhood @rodinhood for live tweets during entire open house & specially @ 10x10x10 Show and Tell’ Presentation  

vishal: just do it baba - that's your portfolio!!!!!

#therodinhoods is a better idea 

Hi Vishal !! Lets connect to plan the Virtual Connect Platform for the Rodinhooders who are staying out of Mumbai and for one or the other reason won't be able to come to Mumbai for each Open House. I have worked on a couple of options. Kindly share your contact coordinates so that we can connect and work on this. You can reach me at +91 98908 17339 or me(at) or mandy.joshi (Skype) 

i am in for the virtual connect - bhaviksparmar (skype), bhaviksparmar(at), 9923112603, Pune

I would suggest if there could be small tea break or that kind of a thing so that people can also interact with each other and exchange their business cards (if they have the cards :P).
My point on suggesting it is that It would help people knowing other people of their interest and who knows some may find co-founders | mentors | advisers in the social gathering. :)

rohit... the last part is for mingling & networking :)

Will not miss it this time !

This sounds like FUN! Will be mailing in my PPT as well! :)

see you guys 27th July!

Cheers, Pranay

pranay... haven't heard from you yet... hope you haven't changed your mind! 

Amazing. Sounds like a litmus test of ideas. Do the presenters get any quick feedback (a minute or two) from Alok  after their presentations?

I think keeping the entire Q&A portion at the end of One and a Half hours might lack the spontanity and thrill of a Q&A.. Why not try accomodate it within the scope of 10 mins.. And moreover, what about people who would have a Question but not an Internet enabled mobile phone??

Great !! nice to see the meet up evolving and getting better with every instance.

What does 'Rodinhood' mean?

Rodinhood is inspired from Rodin - who sculpted 'The Thinker' and Robin Hood who 'got things done'. Hence Thinking+Doing = Rodinhood.

The best place for enterprising folks to hang out, share,make like-minded friends, get feedback and soak in a pool of vast experience.
