Embarking on the journey of ‘self’
This is the greatest help we can do to ourselves.
We all look, but do we see? We hear, but do we listen? We feel, but do we experience?
Butterfly on the Old Banyan Tree reminds us of the simple joys of everyday life that are normally lost in the chaos of human desire to become something. The concise, simple, yet exotic narrative urges the readers to delve into themselves and carry out an introspection of who they really are and who they wish to be.
In the midst of our imperfections we are perfect is the theme of Neveah's exotic and intriguing journey of her life wherein, Neveah transforms into a colourful and beautiful Butterfly. The novelette is flavoured with the undertones of life's philosophy. Its story line forces the reader to enter the realms of nostalgia in her or his own life. This short and simple story could easily be the life's journey of an individual anywhere, anytime. Its universal appeal is truly commendable.

We have been associated with Padmaja from 2014. She has always been great initiator n multifunctional. She has compassion and strong hold on the subject and immense knowledge on multidimensional areas . She has been conducting workshops for our parent community and staff in which her verbal and articulate mannerisms are very highly appreciated and the way she connects every aspect to real life situations for better understanding is commendable. She is a person who cares about an organisation and it’s growth . Her interpersonal skill set is her strength .She has played a vital role in motivating and inspiring our employees to work with their abilities and integrity
I have known padmaja on a personal level; she is the definition of what constitutes a "strong woman". She balances her work & home quite swiftly, reminding me of a picture of a swan in a lake - looking serene, calm & beautiful, but paddling hard beneath the water... She sure inspires me!
Padmaja is a friend and I end up reaching out to her to discuss my blocks/beliefs/apprehensions. She is so nonjudgmental and guides me to think in a right way. This has helped me in sorting things within myself. She taught me how to be more objective and clear in my mind.
Her explanation about various phases and situations in life are very realistic and the suggestions given definitely worth following . She truly is an encouraging and sympathetic speaker worth emulating.
It was an excellent session. Really could connect to some of the points which though we know we have left it unaddressed.
