Contributions to Human Health: Video Clip of exercise video:

He developed a new style of jogging called "dorling". This includes shaking head vigorously (stimulates vegas nerve that can cure depression; increases blood circulation in brain which can prevent plaque formation & thus reducing chance of alzheimer's), moving hands vigorously, & continuously folding & unfolding all fingers (started this few years ago when a finger developed "trigger finger cond.", now all fingers fine).

There is an obscure static exercise developed in ancient India called "gODakurcii". With hands stretched wide this puts body in form of a chair leaning against wall. He modified this into a dynamic exercise called "vaNuku" (the Telugu word means "shivers"). This, done in open space, puts body in a crouching position,& moves head, hands, fingers vigorously while swaying whole body. Exercises all parts of body.
