सेलेब टॉक :
मुस्कुराहट का पर्याय बने
 "दुर्गादास" जी,

" मैने संघर्ष नही किया क्योंकि मैं मुस्कुराता रहा"


नमस्ते दोस्तों, 
    आप जानते ही होगें कि आज पूरा विश्व भारतीय जीवन की सकारात्मक स्वास्थ्य शैली योगा को आत्मसात् कर चुका है | इसमें कोई शक नही कि योगा तन-मन को स्वस्थ्य और सुन्दर बनाता है और हर तरह के तनाव को मिटा देता है | आज हम बात कर रहे कि हास्य योगा यानि लॉफ्टर योगा की | लॉफ्टर योगा एक सकारात्मक ऊर्जा है जो व्यक्ति को प्रेम से जुड़ना सिखाती है | यह एक ऐसी दिव्य ऊर्जा है जो विपरीत परिस्थितियों में भी व्यक्ति को सामान्य प्रसन्नचित् रखती है | विज्ञान की भाषा में कहें तो लॉफ्टर योगा करने वाले व्यक्ति के मस्तिष्क में एंडोरफिन नामक रसायन उत्पन्न होता है जो आपका स्वभाव, व्यवहार मधुर और खुश बनाये रखने में सहयोगी सिद्ध होता 
है | लॉफ्टर योगा ने तो देश- दुनिया के बच्चे से लेकर बुजुर्ग तक को मुस्कुराहट की आहट में मानो संजो लिया है | जो बुजुर्ग घर में चुपचाप लेटे रहते थे आज पर लाफ्टर क्लबों में जाकर दिल खोल कर हँसते हैं और अपने जीवन के अंतिम पड़ाव में भी जवाँ नजर आ रहे हैं | हर बुजुर्ग खुश है यही लाफ्टर योगा की पहिचान है|   
  तो, आइये आपको रूबरू करवाते हैं ऐसे ही चर्चित शख्शियत से जिनको सभी लॉफ्टर योगा गुरू भी कहते हैं | जिन्होने अपना पूरा जीवन समाज और राष्ट्र को कुछ देने में लोगों को "खुशियाँ बाँटने" में समर्पित कर दिया | उन सम्माननीय शख्शियत का नाम है
 "दुर्गा दास" जी |

दुर्गादास- लॉफ्टर योगा एक एरोबिक व्यायाम (कॉर्डियो वर्कआउट) है जो मस्तिष्क और शरीर को अधिक ऑक्सीजन देकर उन्हे तरो ताजा रखता है | इसके फायदे ही हैं जैसे कि यह हम सभी के इम्यून सिस्टम को मजबूत बनाता है जिससे कि हृदय रोग, उच्च रक्तचाप, डिप्रेशन, अर्थराइटिस, कमरदर्द, फ्राईब्रोमाइलगिया, माईग्रेन, सिरदर्द और कैंसर जैसी लाईलाज बीमारियों को होने से बचाता है और जिसको हैं उनको ठीक करने में भी मददगार साबित होता है |

आकांक्षा- आपके जीवन की सफलता का श्रेय किसे देना चाहेगें?

Durga Dass: A Journey with a Difference




The ACTION PLAN of my life is attuned to two features :



1.   God is love, Love is God.


2.   Life is service, Service is Life.



This led me to explore the natural and brighter side of being human and it gradually merged in my personality. I strongly believe in the charm and fascination in :


Keep Smiling

Be Happy and keep others Happy.

Help Ever Hurt Never.

Always make the other person feel important


I started my career in Secretarial services in 1970 and after 5 years experience, joined Engineers India Limited, a Govt. of India Undertaking on 12.01.1976.


On the sideline of career, I developed keen interest in organizing competitive events for my organization. ‘Carom’ attracted my fascination. It is a game of concentration, focus and control of physical and mental faculties. This enabled me to pursue many social activities later in my career and life. Organizing and providing relief work in natural calamities, taking trekking expeditions to mountain trains for young and old became part of sideline activity. Visits to religious places inculcated humility in me and helping attitude towards the destitute and needy.


There was once a lean patch in my life but instead of brooding over the events I faced it as a challenger. One of my friend introduced me to a unique form of ‘being happy’ and I joined a Group of laughtarians. I got involved with base branch of, ‘Delhi Laughter Club’ at Rohini, The activities led me to rejuvenate my morose life style so much so that I made up mind promote laughter therapy for the society and to make it peaceful, healthy and better.


My important contribution/events in my life from Laughter to other activities:


I was given the responsibility as Promoter/Coordinator by Delhi Laughter Club (Regd.) and started laughter promotion from Sept. 2009.


In due course I became a passionate laughtarian after studying its impact on body and mind and on overall health due to positive developments in hormones. It is no secret that I am a crazy about laughter and is working in this field as a dedicated soldier. I had given more than 100 laughter demos and about 35-40 classes were opened with my personal efforts.


Initially, I was an Executive Member but considering my involvement for laughter promotion, I was given the responsibility as Joint Secretary. First Session was started in New Moti Nagar and East Punjabi Bagh (Dhingra Park) on 15.11.2009 and 06.12.2009 respectively.


I opened laughter class in Engineers India Limited on 24.03.2011 and still going on. I started laughter demos in while travelling in Chartered Buses for more than a year before my superannuation.

We used to visit Tihar Jail No. 3 in the year 2013 and gave demonstrations of laughter and ‘be happy’ concept to the under trials and prisoners. The Jail authorities got so much enthused that we were given clearance to visit the JAIL complex to create harmony and love amongst the people over there. I feel proud to free those imprisoned souls.


We used to go Vimhans Hospital to help mentally sick persons through laughter.

Now I have been given a responsibility as a Vice President of Delhi Laughter Club.

Laughter for Varishth Nagrik Kesri Club

Being part of this club, I used to do laughter demos there in its branch at Chaukhandi, near Tilak Nagar Delhi. Once Mrs. Kiran Chopra – Co-Chairman of Punjab Kesri and Founder of this Club, saw my program and she was so happy and impressed with laughter concept and requested to visit the 25 branches of Kesri Clubs in Delhi for laughter demos.


I use to go regularly at Punjabi Bagh, Patel Nagar, Paschim Vihar, Model Towl and Rohini Kesri Clubs.

DD Laughter Concept


As a Laughterian I believe that laughter is a dose that can be taken any time anywhere without any side effects. It brings in happy feelings, happy thoughts, happy work life, happy in team activities, happy dreams leading to sound sleep. With the founder member Dr. Madan Kataria and other worthy members and participants Laughter Movement is being taken to international level. The credit goes to none other than Dr. Madan Kataria.


I am also interested to start DD16 concept under Delhi Laughter Club based on our slogan:

Laughter Club is a journey from 60 to Sweet 16..


Be Young and Feel Young through laughter always. You can be young, energetic and lively at any age.  As in our Society, majority of men and women start thinking old after 60/70/80 and as a result stop enjoying life, as it should not be.


‘Laughter’ to me is like Homeopathic Dose, sweet and effective to heal a person without side effects. Each person requires healing from various ailments. In today’s fast paced life stress strain has added pain to our body. The more we allow it to be retained; more it envelops our heart and mind. Laughter has proved to be effective in helping the heart ‘light’. Lightness is the key to Laughter. It also helps in inculcating the habit of being positive and looking the brighter side of everything. Laughter also helps in creating the subtle art of ‘forgiveness’. Which in turn leads us to be ‘being human’ and happy.        


My dream is to open my ‘DD16 Laughter Club’ and bring it at international level. 


Now taken a responsibility of Secretary – Delhi Laughter Club and they are planning to make me as General Secretary.

With this achievement, there was lot of enthusiasm in EIL Carom players. In 1993 I dedicated myself to this game that enabled EIL players to bring trophies for EIL.
