Every life has a beginning and an end. Experiences in the first few months of life can have an impact on our lives to the very end. But your choices in the middle make you who you are.

“To be happy is your fundamental right,” said Dr. R. Murali Krishna, author of a new book, “Vibrant: To Heal and Be Whole — from India to Oklahoma City.”

While many feel life is so competitive, so fast and so restless, Krishna is different from others.

He intersperses his joy, sorrow and hardships with life lessons and shares his lessons for a happy and successful life through his book “Vibrant.”

To write it, he partnered with Kelly Dyer Fry, editor of The Oklahoman and vice president of news for OPUBCO Communications Group, who was editor for the book.

“Vibrant” is available in bookstores and online.

But realizing the importance of this book, The Greens Country Club has arranged a tennis and table tennis tournament on Saturday, an event that combines one of Krishna's first loves — Ping-Pong — with interest in his new book and support for Integris Mental Health, the organization he leads as president and chief operating officer.

It is rare for a country club to promote a book like this, said Suzanne Laelle, the club's tennis director.

“This tournament is an opportunity to support the efforts of Dr. Krishna and increase the awareness of the stigma of mental illness. As a fitness facility, we recognize the importance and well-being of the whole mind, body and spirit,” she said.

Ping-Pong played a very important role in Krishna's life in India, he said during an interview.
