Subject: Emotional Intelligence "Panel members: Invited Speakers and more Have you ever thought why the best student at university is not the best one in family life or in profession? Why he is not the best father or best spouse? Anyone who has begun working life might discover soon that ability to 'get ahead' depends little on what they learned in training school or university. So, what’s the mantra of success? It’s probably the emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is form of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and action."

Dr. Bhalla also explains why it is important to exercise both the ""hardware"" and ""software"" of our person. Significant effort has gone into validating the scientific backing behind Pranayam. It is interesting to explore how this ancient practice reconciles against modern western science and the common sense of attending to one's breath"
