The whole place has a great vibe. There's different seating for different moods, and I felt like I finally found a place that I can go to when I want to work or read a book or just be- all under one roof. I'm sure I'm going to find myself coming here pretty often!

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake

Apart from my current job, I try to devote my maximum time into wildlife conservation and I also blog about it. One day, I would want to pursue a career of wildlife conservation (probably after I have gained some exposure and saved some money).
Some of my life changing experiences have been my first tiger sighting moment and also the close moments with a little lion-tailed macaque. It was after 10 years of search I sighted a majestic tiger in the deep forests of Bandipur. It was one amazing huge creature gazing at me while I emotionally tried to capture it both in the memories of my brain and my camera. The lion-tailed macaque or the wanderoo is one of the most adorable but sadly endangered species because its forest habitat is being turned into farmland.
I wish to do alot to increase awareness amongst youngsters on the importance of conservation. Its certainly not about whether these animals will survive or not, its largely about our human will to save them.

I believe it's definitely a place which brings smile at one's face, sparkle in one's eyes. For a person like me with a bleak outlook on life, a place like yours motivates to appreciate simplicity of life. Additionally, the team's expansive nature helped freeing the stressed me and I could leave for the day in a palatial state of mind.
I soulfully appreciate the team Dialogues' effort to establish such a beautiful and unique place where you time is given importance unlike materialistic stuff.
Although a random check for a nearby restaurant brought me to Dialogues, but I am looking forward to visit again and again.
I wish Dialogues a good fortune ahead and be extremely successful in the job you are doing that is engaging different people and making them happy.

The stories narrated will make you think, laugh and learn a handful of words from different Indian languages. These Indian folk tales will bring one closer to the heritage of the region they come from.
Not to forget the rhymes. There's a rhyme about the white moon, there's a rhyme about the cham, cham rains, there's something about the chhuk, chhuk trains too! Squirrels, monkeys, crows and buffaloes. Also about the pappadams , dosas and vegetables. Fun, rhythm, beats and intonation are all important when we sing or recite these Indian rhymes. We'll end the session with a traditional game.

The key to Good life is hidden with us!!! Tarot card foundation course
Intrigued by the above statement, you should not be. Most of the time people go wrong and blame it on their fate or just say that they are not lucky enough to have required tools to handle a situation. So what is the cause for the problem? The answer is very simple, it is our mind and the decisions that it makes under influence of various factors around us. This will have a far reaching effect if decisions are not made at the right time in right manner.
So what is the solution???
Tarot is one of the ancient systems of divination which helps a person to communicate with his higher self and utilize the higher level of consciousness for understanding a situation. What do I mean by this? Simple my mind is sort of receiver for the cosmic consciousness and Tarot is a tool by which we try to connect to this intelligence which is with us and everywhere to arrive at a right decision.
So with proper knowledge and practice one can tap into this and lead a life that is fulfilling in a way that we become more close to our higher self and lead a happy life in-spite of situations around us. As we would have the knowledge and understanding of the situation that has led to present events.
Your precious time that you spend with us will cover following topics that should enable you to use this system effectively from day 1
1. How to work with the cards?
2. Which deck to choose?
3. How to connect with the cards and interpret the card?
4. How Tarot helps in my spiritual progression?
5. How to Frame a question (A clear question will give clearer answer)?
6. How to interpret the same card in different situation?
7. How to use it for personal growth and help other?
8. How to improve link with your cards (per say the system)
9. And few other topics
About the Trainer
Ever wondered why life is so full of questions and challenges, why things happen.
This is the question each and every person would have thought about and Im no different.
Im Jayanth Chandramouli S, a Bangalorean who had this thought as long as I can remember. As part of my family upbringing I was exposed to various types of occults sciences from very young age, mainly due to the influence of my Father, which lead to learning of traditional Vedic astrology for more than 15 years (still going strong) and during time I wanted to explore other systems of divinations as well, this led to dabbling on various other systems like Palmistry, Numerology, Prasna, Swara Shastra etc, it was at this time I discovered Tarot Cards in the year 2005, which actually came to me as a pleasant surprise and captured my attention immediately from day one and then the rest is history.
By far Tarot was the most simplest and effective system of divination that I had come across and the answers that I started getting was simply shocking, it actually used to predict big shifts in my life around 6 to 8 months before the actual event and many times it seemed impossible when the card for revealed. The point is Tarot is a wonderful techniques which will help you as a person and get in touch with your higher self. Now I use Tarot reading in amalgamation with traditional Vedic astrology when reading horoscopes for people and has produced very good results.

Being in a school which is structured in a way that greatly mirrors that of British schools, I found to my dismay that my summer vacation was to fall in mid-June again that year, and, once more, I would see days, weeks and months stretching before me with no entertainment of even the most meagre form.
More as a way to occupy myself, I logged on to EventsHigh and scrolled through events taking place that week. I found myself clicking on the link for a screenwriting workshop - a subject which, before that day, I had nursed great interest in, but I had never thought of taking forward.
Drawing up to the building in Koramangala that houses Dialogues, I hadn't expected it to be outstanding in any way, having thought of it more as a vessel for the workshop than as anything else.
I was greatly surprised, then, when I walked up the steps, through several shop fronts still under construction, and I saw the cheery, warming interior of the caf, and forgot for a moment my rush to get in on time. I saw through large glass panels a group which had already assembled for the workshop and sat on a beanbag chair as quickly as I could.
The next day I had more of a chance to observe the caf, having arrived early to it, and settled myself down in the room where the workshop took place. One of the co-founders ambled over to me, and as we talked, I suddenly realized that all the people around me on computers and phones weren't run-of-the-mill cafe goers. They were dreamers - artists, writers, poets. And I suddenly noticed the slips of paper on the wall were filled with the writings of Dialogues regulars, and the artwork hung up was painted by customers as well
Then, as he spoke, I saw how perfectly I fit in to the framework of creators at Dialogues, and how wonderful it was for me to sit down for an hour or two and write just as feverishly as the others around me, and what immense satisfaction it gave me to know that everyone there wanted to create, to spread wonder, and to make the most of their imaginations.
I was reluctant at first, and hesitant to admit to myself that there might be some glimmer of talent in my madness - or that there might be a little more than merely enjoyment in my writing. But Dialogues nudged me along my way, introducing me to the most eclectic cast of characters - people I would have never met, and people who have shaped who I am, both as a writer and as a person.
