Vividly remember Gurudev’s laughter when he uttered these words, “कौन कहता है कि रोने से मन हल्का होता है? मन हल्का हो न हो, सिर अवश्य दुखता है.” It translates as, “After a bout of crying, your heart may or not become lighter, but your head will definitely feel heavier.”
There is a scientific explanation to this: A headache after crying is a common after-effect. When you cry, you lose water from the body and this leads to dehydration which in turn leads to a headache.
About Gurudev Upadhyaya Praveen Rishi

His rich understanding of human nature is reflected in the way he speaks – with humour and seriousness intermingled beautifully.
