Welcome to the May edition of WFY. As we navigate through these challenging times, it is important to take care of our physical and mental health, and this issue is packed with stories and insights that can help us do just that.
Our cover story features Sudha Murty, a true inspiration who embodies the power of being a complete woman. From breaking gender stereotypes to advocating for education and social welfare, she has left an indelible mark on society.
In Economy & Business, we examine the impact of India’s recent cryptocurrency ban on the diaspora community and its potential consequences for the global economy. Meanwhile, our Sports section celebrates the Anglo-Indian connection of Australian cricketer Clark, who continues to excel and inspire millions.
Mental health is an important issue that affects us all, and in this issue, we shine a spotlight on the rising prevalence of mental health issues among Indian immigrants in the US. We also explore the link between positive education and the development of powerful leaders.
In World Politics, we delve into India’s role in the geopolitics of the Indo-Pacific region, an issue of increasing global significance. We also take a look at the Clark Story, a testament to the strong and devoted Anglo-Indian connection.
In Academics, we consider whether movies can educate and inspire and how universities can continue to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing landscape.
I am delighted to share with you that the May edition of WFY magazine also features a vibrant art and culture section, complete with insightful poems and inspiring stories. Our Travel and Leisure section explores the fascinating lives of migratory birds and their incredible journeys across the world. And of course, we have our mouth-watering feature on the traditional Indian delicacy Puran Poli in the From the Kitchens of India section.
Additionally, we have a feature on important dates to mark in May, reminding us of the rich cultural and historical significance of this month. So, whether you are interested in health and wellness, business and economics, world politics, academia, or simply looking to explore the diverse and fascinating aspects of Indian life and culture, the May edition of WFY magazine has something for everyone.
I would like to share a thought with all of you, my dear readers. As members of the Indian diaspora, we are spread far and wide across the globe, but we are all connected by our shared heritage and culture. In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to come together and support one another.
One way we can do this is by becoming a part of Indian Diaspora Global, a platform dedicated to fostering connections and promoting the interests of the Indian diaspora worldwide. Another way is by supporting the ‘Keep the Door Open’ campaign for dual citizenship, which would allow us to maintain our ties to India while also embracing the opportunities and challenges of our adopted countries.
Let us remember that we are a diverse and resilient community capable of great things when we work together. May this edition of WFY inspire us all to lead healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives, both individually and collectively.
We hope you find this issue informative, insightful, and inspiring, and that it provides you with the tools and motivation to live your best life, whatever challenges may come your way.
Thank you, and until next time.
