The year 2019 had several thousand Goa stories being printed in the newspapers, shown on television and discussed on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. But there are some things that we missed to get the attention to. So, on this last day of the year, we bring to you “News that we missed.”
Porvorim: Meet Priyanka Sahasrabhojanee, a consulting Psychiatrist, who also introduces herself as “aspiring social entrepreneur.”
While consultants and doctors prefer to give their ‘dose of knowledge’ sitting in their Air-conditioned cabin, Priyanka did something different.
She has combined Goa’s natural beauty with her advice on positive mental health. All this happens on her YouTube channel “The Goa Therapy.”
Accompanied by her photographer Geetesh Gawas, Priyanka has shot at least eight videos on different aspects of positive mental health. The eight videos are at different locations, and if you log in her YouTube channel, I am sure you won’t log out till you listen to her last word.
It is not only the knowledge that she disseminates but the scenic surrounding where the videos are shot, makes it more interesting.
She started the channel in May, 2019 and now her popularity on social media has been skyrocketing.
She has shot the videos at the backdrop of Heart Shape Lake at Bogmalo, St Estevan, Torda Lake, Betim Church and Panaji’s iconic D B Bandodkar road alongside Mandovi river besides other.
“People are liking the videos. They feel like listening to them as I talk about positive mental health. The family members of the patients, the patients themselves, watch it,” she said.
Explaining the concept, Priyanka said “when we talk about Goa, it is synonym to de-stressing because of the natural beauty the state is bestowed with. So, I decided to couple the de-stressing natural ambience and the message on positive mental health.”
We wish all the best to Priyanka in the year 2020.
