Stress is an invisible adversary that affects people from all walks of life, undermining health, happiness, and productivity. Shankar understands this struggle intimately. After numerous failed attempts to alleviate his stress, he recognized the urgent need for a lasting idea. This persistent issue ignited his determination to not just find a temporary fix but to pioneer a groundbreaking approach to stress reduction.

The existing methods of stress management often fell short, leaving many, including himself, in a continuous loop of anxiety and frustration. This realization pushed him to think outside the box, aiming to create something that could offer more than just a quick fix.
