The Perfect Work-Life Equilibrium Ever Attained

28/11/2019

Over the ages, the word ‘work’ has become synonymous with a monotonous 9-to-5 schedule. This unfavourable perception towards office-life has grown with the passing eras that changed concepts and ideologies in accordance with the prevalent global trend. Since the industrial era, the phrase ‘work-life balance’ was unheard of. Then in the era of baby boomers (those born in the 1940s to 1960s), the daily eight-hour grind was an expected part of life. Today, all such norms and conventions are being broken on a daily basis in an attempt to create a world of individualistic self-governance.

So, the fundamental question that has harrowed every working professional over the years is - what exactly is work-life balance? Does work-life balance stop at giving equal importance to both work life and personal life? Perhaps it only starts there. The end goal of work-life balance isn’t about finding only balance. It’s about finding fulfilment. Ergo, the much-hyped balance is only the means and not the end.

While 9-to-5 office workers still exist, for the most part, an increasing number of professionals are eschewing the conventional work dynamic to engage with work on their own terms, timelines, and turfs. As lives get busier and hassled, striking a balance between work and other aspects of life becomes an arduous task in itself. Since the days of the Vedas, enlightened sages and free thinkers have constantly stressed the importance of bringing balance to every aspect of one’s life. In order to feel a semblance of fulfilment, the average person faces an uphill task of assigning adequate time and energy to nurture their social life, leisure activities, and other pursuits that lead to a truly content life.

Working from home is only one way to help cultivate a lifestyle that leads to contentment, but it is a drop in the ocean compared to all the lifestyle elements constituting a fulfilling life. Much is influenced by one’s home, for its positives and negatives inevitably shape one’s way of living. Imagine a concept of living that comes with space dedicated for work, adorned with functional and aesthetic elements that enhance productivity. Not to mention a concierge service to address every whim, both work-related or otherwise, that makes your daily routine a lot more pleasant. In a community equipped with spaces, features, and amenities that make an uneventful day seem like one straight out of a fairy tale, attaining the perfect balance seems a lot more plausible. Svasa Homes is a living experience designed for a lifestyle that not only puts the problem of work-life balance to rest but brings utmost equilibrium to every single aspect of living.

How Impactful Residential Communities Can Change The World

20/11/2019
A community can be many things. In the original context, it refers to a collection of individuals and families living in a specific space or geographic region. In the truest sense, a community not only includes families within a living space but entire villages and towns. It flourishes through the strength of its members, their activities, traditions, and ideals. The collective actions and thoughts of its members defined the community’s identity. By their very nature, humans thrive only when they are active members of a living ecosystem where others work for the betterment of one another and thereby the community as a whole.

A member, when part of a community, is greatly influenced by the perceptions, actions, and ideas of others. They inspire and influence one another to do great things. When one is actively involved in a close-knit community, it is hard not to be influenced by the actions and achievements of your fellow residents, especially when their doings create profound impact in society. Greatness inspires greatness, and it is all the truer when you live in a community brimming with extraordinary personas.

Today, residential communities are microcosms with the potential to create an impact on a global level. Nothing is truer when speaking of the Svasa Homes community, where literally every member is a powerhouse of immense knowledge, ability, and connections. With a collective so impactful, there is no hurdle or dilemma that cannot be overcome. Of course, there exist similar communities across the world and likely the same potential for groundbreaking change. Countries can be saved from hunger, children everywhere can access quality education, global warming may become a distant memory, economies can flourish, the possibilities are endless. Harnessing the full capabilities of a truly impactful residential community can lead to the world becoming a much better place.

Reviving Vedic Principles For Today's Impact Makers

08/11/2019

The ancient Indian civilization was a time of great significance and progress. The erudite sages of the age delved into subjects and thoughts that required a level of gumption and dedication that was way beyond the ability of the common man. The sages determinedly pursued knowledge and truths on the origin of existence, the concept of self, the duality of good and evil, generosity of the soul, and many other profound themes of life. These thoughts they discussed, debated, and immortalized in the form of scriptures greatly revered to this day - the Vedas.

The Vedas comprise four sacred Hindu texts - Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda, and Atharvaveda. Packed with stories and hymns varying in themes such as life, existence, and worship, the Vedas are considered one of the oldest bodies of knowledge in the world offering philosophies that hold true even today. While delving deep into heftier topics, the Vedas also cherish the simpler yet important aspects of a wholesome life such as goodness, philanthropy, and more. More than anything, the Vedic texts aim to nurture impact and fulfilment in an endeavour to uplift the very nature of human existence.

Together, the four Vedic texts hold enough power and wisdom for an individual to effect paradigm-shifting impact in their own life and the world. In their own simple yet profound way, the Vedic sages tackled some of life’s most ineffable concepts while moulding common sense and practicality into a way of living. Imbibing these philosophies allows one to view the world through a clearer, brighter lens. It shows how thinking selflessly creates not only a better world outside but a purer one within the Self. This is the path to true fulfilment.

One might ask, why is fulfilment important for impact makers. The lack of time, peace, and mind space pose challenges to an impactful way of life today, throwing us in a cycle of discontent. The irony is that the Vedas contain solutions to this conundrum. It’s a simple and arduous endeavour to break free from this seemingly irreversible rut - fortitude and determination aided by an environment crafted for higher living and an experience of absolute fulfilment. Svasa Homes is a concept of living that revives Vedic principles to facilitate one’s journey to profound impact and completeness. Every space is designed to, together, enable attainment of this elevated pursuit in myriad ways and methods. Using Vedic principles as guidelines inspire the individual to transcend the mundane gains of everyday life in search of a greater purpose. Therein lies the catalyst to encourage one to impact the world for the better.
