“Currently, in India, we are at a wonderful juncture of huge change from the traditional field of sciences to allied sciences and therapies,” said Manisha Sanghavi, CEO, Sancheti Healthcare Academy.

The conjunction is where medical science meets the depth of art and creativity, juicing the best of both worlds, said Dr Nikita Mittal of ‘Life and Dance’, a dance therapy academy.
