Running overtly after fleeting moments of happiness,
Experiencing withdrawal after some initial giddiness,
Oh the maddness! Why is it not here to stay?!!
Slipping away, like the scenic sunset golden ray…

Mind, Body and I

FB_IMG_1506889706778

At dawn when the war had reached its end,
Bodies were strewn; what was left to mend?
“Who owns?!” the rage first started off as a mutter,
Now trucks pick both bodies alike, lying in the gutter.

Nationalism, sexism, racism, this-ism, that-ism. As if the conflict outside wasn’t enough, there’s enough to deal with within- could’ve done, absolutely should not(!!) have done and so on. Is there a right or a wrong way of behaving in situations? Could these be cases of mis-directed identity? What on Earth does “mis-directed identity” even mean?!

Welcome to Krishna Club’s first event of Fall 2017!! We’re back with intriguing topics and guest speakers! Below are the deets for this week:

What? Mind, Body and I
When? Thursday, Oct 5 @ 7pm
Where? Room 311 C Student Centre
Cost? FREE**!!

**There are no hidden clauses! First event of the semester is usually free. Each session is $5 with club membership at $15.
