(now Ruby Dutta) began a prolific career in
anchoring and acting by winning the title of “Miss India-Canada, 1993”. Born in the
U.S.A. and raised in Canada, she moved
to Mumbai after studying Philosophy at the
University of Toronto.
Popularly known as India’s first veejay, Ruby was
launched by Star TV’s music
channel, “Channel [V]”. Since then, she has anchored
a wide variety of television shows,
acted in a plethora of big-banner films, advertised
for top international brands and hosted
mega-events like Miss World and the Filmfare Awards.
She has also actively participated in
social causes like children’s education and the
Crusade Against Tobacco.
In 2006, Ruby decided to pursue her first love, yoga
and meditation. She became an
initiated disciple of Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda,
great God-realized master of India
and author of the spiritual classic “Autobiography
of a Yogi” (www.srf-yogananda.org / www.yssofindia.org ). This brought an ineffable
satisfaction to her life, and answered all her questions as a student of philosophy.
Recently, Ruby married Ajit S. Dutta, a fellow
disciple of her Guru. Ajit, a talented
choreographer and dance instructor, shares Ruby’s
love for fitness, yoga, and meditation.
And Ruby, in turn, shares Ajit’s love for dance (she
is trained in Tap, Jazz, Ballet and
Modern Dance from the Toronto Branch of The Royal
Academy of Dance, London).
This common interest in dance and fitness led to the
establishment of Ajit and Ruby’s
company, “BODY DYNAMICS—Dance and Fitness” (www.bodydynamicsindia.com).
Together, Ruby and Ajit hold classes and workshops,
choreograph shows and provide
corporate training. They also perform at selected
events, and give dance and fitness
presentations on television and other forms of
media. As the Business Manager of Body
Dynamics, Ruby oversees its activities…while Ajit is
the Creative Director of the company
as well as its Chief Choreographer and Instructor.
