“Dope rules our lives, we do the same stuff and we ride a tiger by the tail with the same twins of boisterousness fed in us at one hand and fear of falling off the tiger’s back and be seen dead on the other. It is all vested in the mind. Minds have become Brittle, Anxious, Non-linear and incomprehensible. We mirror your mind that helps you exact your vision as you replace dope with YourOneLife” says Yogi.
