Part two of Raj's story.  This episode features Raj's journey back to India where his grandfather left in the 1940s (to come to Canada for a better life for him and his children) in order to stop using heroin and find peace in his life.  HE traveled to a place called Rishikesh, a place where pilgrims and people from all over the world have been going to for thousands of years for spiritual clarity.  When Raj was younger, he was told by a doctor that he'd be on anti-depressants for the rest of his life, but hear how eastern spirituality, philosophy and embracing his familial culture proved that wrong.  In the last half of the interview, he also talks about the documentary he's currently making regarding his addiction, relapse, and recovery.

Raj also talks about 
the importance of relapse in his journey; 
yoga (but not the western lululemon type); 
life, death and the illusion of time; 
the importance of suboxone for his recovery; 
stigma of drug users in the south-asian community; 
what 'success' means 
and so much more!

Thanks so much for listening, friend!
