Members of Millennium Youth had a fun Thursday afternoon spent doing exercises and group activities as a part of Dance Movement Therapy Workshop conducted by Angirra Chakravorty Dasgupta. “This workshop focuses on the movements of our body, which has come to a standstill due to the mobile era.

Then there was that time her scooty had a flat tyre and she had to wait in the scorching heat for a mechanic because she can't change a tyre.
I joined the Universite de Sherbrooke in Canada this January to do a doctorate in Cell Biology. My project focuses on pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest forms of the disease.
