TabooDana emerged from the need to have an environment, place and a circle where one can be open and free when talking or listening about anything and everything which is a ‘Taboo” and in the process emerge as a completely powerful person who is not consumed by power and still has empathy, a Dana (Day-Na). Dana is a word itself, created to define awesome people.

There are somethings that only Love Understood and no else did. We all know love exists in ways we may not agree with. Taboos around love are socially conditioned. Taboos are pleasures we desire, which are reined in considering social isolation. Nevertheless, behind those closed doors, under the spread out sheets and in the darkContinue reading “An Affair only Love Understood”
We are in testing times with the ongoing pandemic. While I hope most of us are home with our families, there are several of us who are away from their homes separated by sealed borders.

When we are growing up, there are a lot of things which we do and talk about in our innocence. At times because they sound funny, at times because someone said don’t do it and at times because they make us feel grown up. Gradually, we start forming perceptions about what is right and what is wrong, what is out of the ordinary and goes against the norm.This can be a practice, a culture, or a person or a thing. We believe in providing a place where anyone can express, discuss, vent about anything which is a Taboo. Our mission is to invest time, energy and money in building a society which is excepting to the exceptions. We do that, by creating programs and holding listening circles, providing necessary resources.
