Organizations such as the Creative Movement Therapy Association of India is one of the pioneer organisations in the country that offers sessions in dance and movement therapy and have been hugely successful in helping people deal with stress and anxiety better. Rather than teaching dance, therapists try to assess the individual's needs and issues. Then they initiate and help develop movement patterns, taking off from the physical-emotional-intellectual level of their clients. People with background in dance and psychology can opt for this exciting career option.

What lies beneath is something that excites everyone! And that's what oceanographers and marine biologists do for a living. They cover a wide range of topics including marine life and ecosystems, ocean circulation, plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor, and the chemical and physical properties of the ocean. Biological oceanographers and marine biologists studyplants and animals in the marine environment. They are interested in the numbers of marine organisms and how t
hese organisms develop, relate to one another, adapt to their environment, and interact with it.
