Mysore ride on family scooter.

My kids’ favorite part about living in India was getting to ride on the “family scooter.”

Sometimes we would drive to the swimming pool across town and pile on the scooter with all of our floaties, swimsuits, picnic basket, and change of clothes, and we would all manage to fit.

What’s more, sometimes we could drive across town, beeping and swerving around vehicles and animals, without stopping once! It was pure freedom.

“Wealth cannot be measured by the size and power of the “Family Wagon.” It can be measured by the size and magnitude of the smiles on the passengers.”

Eight limbs of yoga: “Santosha (contentment) is one of the niyamas. It means the knowing the peace that is already inside, and, at the same time, feeling unity with something much greater than ourselves.”

  1. Having visited Vietnam recently I was amazed at how many people can fit on one scooter and how much stuff can be loaded onto one, at the same time driving through heavy traffic.
