The Inspiration to create and invent Arya Games came in the early days of the internet towards the end of the last century, when Sameer Mehta (husband) and Rochana (wife) initiated email interactions for a potential life and soul partnership across different continents. The story sparked when both of them were keen to understand what mattered to each other and their motives in life. Their success in first finding each other and then building a life with each other -is partially due to the seeds of the first Arya Game -the Values Game.
What was truly inspiring and surprising was how useful the games proved in families and with friends to have interesting discussions across generations on what truly mattered and what mattered more to each other without the typical ego, pride and judgment that are typical of family sessions. People started to sparkle . Today – the aim of Arya Play is to help understand folks ,we enjoy sharing and investing time with .
Over the last two decades , through marriage ,through children ,through transitions ,through migration across 4 continents -the couple began to observe that although core aspects (Values) remained the same ,the priority of these aspects and ingredients seemed to change with life situations .Also , it was observed that sources of energy and vitality seemed to change with life .As these findings with colleagues ,friends and family were contemplated upon and discussed – it was understood that core values , the prioritization of values and energy ingredients for a happy life were different for different folks, and could vary with age, a culture and life circumstances.
Further research along social anthropologists, clinical psychologists and human behaviorists, became another major driving force to help develop a list of positive values and a few governing frameworks. The Arya Play games have been refined nationalists and over by play with people from over thousands of professions, over hundred nationalists and a full spectrum of age groups. The findings are remarkable – by prioritizing these aspects(ingredients for life), we can collectively live more fun, grounded and fulfilling life.
