In this edition, we focus on relationships, particularly on the traditionally lifelong bond between two
individuals. In the past few decades, divorce rates have been rising worldwide, and as the social and
economic fabric changes, even in India, the once unthinkable is not completely out of bounds anymore.
Is marriage becoming obsolete, or are there fundamental reasons to uphold this institution? Our Lead
Article, “One Life, One Partner?” has Sadhguru’s answer. In a public conversation with Sadhguru,
actress and former Miss India, Juhi Chawla, calls attention to the emotional level of relationships:
Where to draw the line between loving unconditionally and becoming a doormat? In the article “Of
Domestic Love and Doormats,” Sadhguru sets forth his view on the matter.
While marriage is a union of two people, the article “Three in One Shot” is about a union of a different
kind. Find out why the number three plays a pivotal role in yogic practices, though we ultimately aim

“Close Your Eyes / Toe to Toe / Heel to Perineum.” The article “Down to Business” offers us a peak into
the 2013 edition of INSIGHT – The DNA of Success. Our “Dry Fruit Barfi” recipe allows you to treat
yourself, your family, and your friends with a sweet indulgence this Diwali. Enjoy without remorse!
