Bicycle sharing program in Mumbai; inside look into Laughter Yoga

On this episode we talk to Raj Janagam, the founder of Cycle Chalao.  Cycle Chalao is a bicycle sharing program that Raj started at Kelkar College in Mulund to rent bicycles to students at two points: the railway station and the college entrance.  Bicycle sharing, already an idea popular in Europe and other cities around the world, has proven to be popular and Raj has already broken even on operational costs.  He is a finalist in the Unreasonable Institute business challenge.  To learn more, visit Cycle Chalao’s website.

Next we talk to Dr. Madan Kataria and his wife Madhuri.  In 1995 they founded Laughter Yoga and since then it has grown to thousands of clubs in over 60 countries.  I visited the couple and had them guide me through their Laughter Yoga practice and describe some of its benefits.  To learn more about their work, click here.
