Spas today immediately conjure up in one’s mind images of a relaxing environment with one dressed in a robe and osho slippers listening to soothing music, sipping herbal concoctions and eating healthy designer meals. Life is supposed to be simplified in a spa with no distractions and work obligations focusing just on the well being of the client.
Today there are different kinds of spas – health, day, retreat, beauty, resort and detoxification. Health spas are about instant rejuvenation quite like the instant Maggie noodles that we are familiar with. Treatments in these spas are designed not just to work fast but to also provide visible instant results. Most spas offer five star facilities and are largely the destination of the rich and the famous. These spas that exclusively cater to the glitterati are generally situated in resorts. The rich pay huge amounts to get them off their dependence on substances and to get their lives back on tracks. The champagne dreams and caviar kisses that’s what luxury is all about in the spas. They are aimed at pampering the already pampered.
With less time these days for relaxation, these spas are minting money as popular vacation getaways for the rich to unwind. The idea is to be able to get mental and spiritual harmony by spending money realigned in a spa to be able to hit the road again.

I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
