Feng Shui's Little Master brings 'positive energy'
Kochi | Monday, Dec 31 2012 IST
Growing renown as an expert in Feng Shui, a thriving consultancy and a bestselling book may count as achievements of a lifetime; but for K S Vishnu Das it has all come at just 16 years of age, with what he believes is the power of the ancient Chinese art he practices.
At his stall in the GKSF Global Village Consumer Pavilion, surrounded by the instruments used in Feng Shui, Vishnu, a Class XII student at the Kaloor Model Technical Higher Secondary School, speaks about the positive energy that has filled and transformed his life. He learnt the basics of the art as a youngster from his father K S Sivaprasad, an aquamarine trainer who runs a Feng Shui cum Aqua store in the city. So drawn to the art was he, that when most children his age occupied themselves with schoolbooks and in the playground, he trawled through the internet and literature on the subject to understand the depths of Feng Shui. The result was a book titled 'Feng Shui: The Art of Living In Harmony With Your Environment'. Vishnu was a Class X student when it was published and it changed his life. Hailed by many, including renowned writer/orator Dr Sukumar Azhikode as a first-rate book on the subject, the volume got multiple reprints within a short span and went on to become a bestseller at the Kochi International Book Festival. Builders, interior designers and homeowners came seeking his guidance, and as many of his clients reported positive changes in their lives following his advice, his career as a professional consultant took off.
Vishnu, who is currently busy publishing a second book on the subject, finds time to spend some time at his stall at the Global Village. His family is at the store throughout, explaining to visitors the various Feng Shui tools and instruments symbolising positive energy, including the Laughing Buddha, the mythological three-legged frog, the pagoda, the Mandarin Duck, the crystal globe, the phoenix and the dragon. Vishnu himself is available to offer consultancy services. The Global Village, sponsored by Dalda and Carnival Group, is being held as part of the ongoing South Indian Bank Grand Kerala Shopping Festival.
The shopping, entertainment and amusement opportunities it offers have been drawing large crowds from across the state. UNI XR/DS AKM ADB1931 NNNN
