About Me

Priya Hart

A juggler keeps several balls flying through the air. If one falls down, she immediately picks it up and tosses it up again. That’s me, juggling family, yoga, writing, friends and nature. Family means stability, grounding, home and hugs. Yoga is a way of life and a gift of grace. Writing is an inner glow - lights, heats and blazes. Friends are a circle of warmth and support, and nature is a constant source of life and beauty.

Upside Down

Upside Down

If survival is the measure of evolutionary success, bacteria and insects far surpass all other life forms. We humans appeared later than other animals and it's not at all clear how long we will last. 


In "Upside Down," Priya Hart interweaves three strands – personal anecdotes, scientific studies of animal behavior, and tales from Indian culture – into a unified, unconventional, and memorable picture.
