Always loved, never forgotten, forever missed: Sheetal Mulani #23
N.R.I. Woman N.R.I. Woman
access_time8 days ago
Our guest today Sheetal Mulani shares her story of rebuilding her life after her son Mohit passed away at the age of 21. The loss of a child regardless of age is one of the most devastating experiences a parent can face. One is never going to stop feeling the loss, and that gap is never going to be replaced. Sheetal and her family have had to find a way to love and care for each other so their family can survive despite missing a very precious part. Mohit was diagnosed with anxiety and ADHD while he was away at university and put on medication, which Sheetal believes changed the person Mohit was. She was unaware of his diagnosis or treatment until it was too late. She hopes in sharing her story more parents become aware of some of the changes to watch out for in their children so more children can be safe. She's our NRI Woman and this is her story!

In stillness the world is restored: Sonia Anand #21
N.R.I. Woman N.R.I. Woman
access_time22 days ago
Sonia Anand believes stillness is the key to restoring the balance within ourselves and on a larger scale the world. She thinks when the organic beauty of our soul evolves through gentle practices we automatically begin to radiate love health and positivity to the universe. Sonia was like most of us, wearing many hats at the same time. From raising her young kids, managing the home to juggling her corporate job, Sonia felt like she was being pulled in ten different directions at the same time. This overly scheduled and hard life left her feeling physically exhausted most of the time. It reached a point where she was so stressed with the daily routine that she thought she couldn't take it anymore. It was at this point she was diagnosed with depression. She sought the necessary treatment needed to help her get on track, but she also knew she needed something more. She decided to explore Yoga to help her cope with the depression. That decision changed the course of her life. She eventually went on to give up her corporate career and decided to pursue life as a Yoga teacher and Acharya or spiritual leader. She hasn't looked back since. She has found a connection with her inner-self through yoga, meditation and stillness and she hopes that in sharing the skills she learnt, will help others connect with themselves. She is our NRI Woman, and this is her story. Until next time, keep learning, keep inspiring and be kind!

Today's AI algorithms require tens of thousands of expensive medical images to detect a patient's disease. What if we could drastically reduce the amount of data needed to train an AI, making diagnoses low-cost and more effective? TED Fellow Pratik Shah is working on a clever system to do just that. Using an unorthodox AI approach, Shah has developed a technology that requires as few as 50 images to develop a working algorithm -- and can even use photos taken on doctors' cell phones to provide a diagnosis. Learn more about how this new way to analyze medical information could lead to earlier detection of life-threatening illnesses and bring AI-assisted diagnosis to more health care settings worldwide.
