Eating Fruit

We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.

It’s not as easy as you think. It’s important to know how and when to eat.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?

IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS!

FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.

If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system,

supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD.

Let’s say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit.

The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines,

but it is prevented from doing so.

In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid.

The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices,

the entire mass of food begins to spoil….

So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals!

You have heard people complaining — every time I eat watermelon I burp,

when I eat durian my stomach bloats up,

when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc —

actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach.

The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!

Greying hair, balding, nervous outburst and dark circles under the eyes

all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice – drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans.

Don’t even drink juice that has been heated up.

Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get the nutrients at all.

You only get to taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.

If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly,

because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body.

Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days

and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

KIWI:

Tiny but mighty.

This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber.

Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

APPLE:

An apple a day keeps the doctor away?

Although an apple has a low vitamin C content,

it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C

thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

STRAWBERRY:

Protective Fruit.

Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power

among major fruits & protect the body from

cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

ORANGE :

Sweetest medicine.

Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol,

prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

WATERMELON:

Coolest thirst quencher.

Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione,

which helps boost our immune system.

They are also a key source of lycopene — the cancer fighting oxidant.

Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

GUAVA & PAPAYA:

Top awards for vitamin C.

They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content.

Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation.

Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!

Can u believe this??

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.

It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal.

However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed.

It will slow down the digestion.

Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid,

it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food.

It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer.

It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks

HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE': (THIS IS NOT A JOKE!)

Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.

Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.

You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.

Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.

Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep.

Let’s be careful and be aware.

The more we know the better chance we could survive.

Lost forever….???

April 7th 2011, 4.30pm PST.
I got a call from my brother that my mother was no more with us. For a moment the world came to a stand still to me. I wanted to scream and tell that it was not true, I just wanted it to be a nightmare that was not real when I got up, I wished it was some sort of a bad feeling that would vanish soon, I wanted it to be anything else but true….Coz for once I was not ready to accept this truth… I couldn’t imagine the truth that a human being who gave birth to me, who took care of me all these years, whom I spoke every day and night even though I was 1000s of miles apart, whom I loved more than anything, who meant so much in my life is no more. But unfortunately it was a hard truth and I had to face the hard part of life. Yes, my mother had left me(April 8th 2011, 4.55AM IST), Left me to a place of no return, A place where I can’t reach her by any means. I had no choice but to rush to India to bid an adieu to the lady whom I would want as a mother for all my re-births. It was one of the toughest journeys of my life since emotionally I was broke and I had to travel hours to join my loved ones back home. I arrived in Bangalore on 10th April and we had to complete the final rituals. I was still in a sort of silhouette and wished it was a dream. But as the final rituals proceeded I had to finally accept that I had lost my mother forever. It was toughest for my father and equally tough for me and my siblings because my Mother was like a support system for us and now it’s a life without a support system for all of us. After this happened I am a little puzzled with what life is all about??? A person is born with so much of love, leads the life with so many aspirations, so much of ambitions and within a moment the person has to give up everything and surrender to death….After doing a lot of soul searching I am still wondering is the person Lost forever….??? Or is it really just the body…..???

For whatever it is, All I can do is to pray for my Mother to Rest in Peace and hope to continue doing good things so that my Mother will always be proud of me, Since I still believe she is around me watching every move of mine and guiding me in the right path………..

Quote : If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I’d walk straight up to the heaven and bring you home Mother….Love you always!!!!!!!

Need for a Change

Being outside the country, I know the importance of what it is like to be in your motherland. However for people like me, opportunities, fast money, better life-style, urge to do things differently, social obligation, etc takes precedence and end up in creating confusion. You may debate that I can get everything back in India too and I completely agree with you. It’s just that I am not quite sure how much I can handle it. Anyways that’s another whole topic about which we can talk, argue or debate for hours and days. Having said that lemme emphasize on the topic for this post. ‘need for a change’, now that I am out of country and seeing the system from a different angle I see so many things that I would have never noticed being within the system. May it be with respect to values, life style, technologies, ideas, etc. Going forward I shall start posting about what could be wrong or right in India and how can those things be exposed or corrected. I shall go by facts and figures so I am sure there will be enough scope for critics to hunt me down. While commenting make sure you are aware of the fact that I am trying to analyze the system from outside and it is just my view. We are not talking about what is right or wrong but what is correct and incorrect. After all our country is in Need of a change(a +ve one).

What’s Life?

What’s Life?

With no smiles?
With no friends?
With no thrill?
With no goal/aim?
With no satisfaction?
With no one around to share your happiness and sorrow?
With no intentions of doing good?
With no innovations?
………….
I am sure everyone has things to add about Life. However as my fav quote goes…”a ship is always safe in the shore, but that is not what it is made for?”. So treat your Life as ship and let it sail and face the real waves, I am sure Every ship has a better Destination.

Interesting Companion!

While the word companion in the title could refer to anyone or anything, I would like to keep the context as an entity rather than any particular individual or thing.

The interesting companion that I am talking about here is a backpack or a school bag. As I have stated above please refer to bag as entity and not “A PARTICULAR BAG”. It all started when I started my schooling at an age of 3/3.5. It’s a tradition with any kid to carry a school bag and I too had one. Starting from those days till today the school bag which later took the form of a backpack has taken a great place in my life. It’s been on my back for carrying my books, my lunch, my important documents, laptop, etc. from a very longtime and till date. It is until this morning, when I didn’t take my backpack to work(I carry a backpack everyday to my work), that I realised it’s significance. This morning when I got out of my house without my backpack, I felt there is something important missing on my body. I felt very light and peculiar. It is then I realised that my backpack has been a companion and without my knowledge I have established a very strong bond with this useful material. I love my backpack and make a pledge to myself today that I will never get rid of such an interesting companion in my life.

Addiction

I am not talking about alcohol, tobacco, video games, gambling, etc. People get affected very badly while addicted to those things. However in my case there are few things that I am addicted to and while writing this I would like to see the threats and advantages of such addictions.
Internet: while this is so far the biggest in the communication media, it also has become a vital part of my life. I can’t imagine life without Internet. Since I was introduced to Internet during the late ninties I have become a devotee of the webworld. Browsing, chat, blogging, webdesign, websearch, etc would run in my mind 24/7 as chants. The good side of it is, I am gaining knowledge, keeping in touch with all my friends, adding to my skillset, got in touch with people whom I never thoght will meet again, etc. In short I would say the world on my fingertips. Now the badside of it is I am addicted, I spend more time than I should, i don’t move much as it’s my fingers that do most of the work, I am straining my eye, etc. I know by mitigating between these 2 I can find a solution but still Internet will remain my addiction.
Farmville: while it all started as fun, by the time I could realize that 2 million ppl are addicted to this bug called farmville, I was already into it. While there was not much knowledge gathering in this, it still had the same bad effects as the Internet. Some of the good things were it was fascinating, It taught me how important time is in farming, etc. I am almost out of this addiction, just need to wrap it up.

There are always good and bad about every addiction, however there is always a need for us to sit back and weigh the good and bad. We need to ensure that the good always overcomes the bad. I am trying to do the same, will you???

Real Weapon

With the increasing number of crime, terrorism, anti-social activities, etc, its evident that somewhere things are going wrong which is yielding in the increase of such negative activities. Everyday we read in the newspaper and see on TV about the need for imposing strict ban or restrictions in usage of illegal weapons. While watching the news about one such incident in the TV, where the government was planning to bring restrictions on carrying liquids while air-travel, I was thinking the days are not far when ppl will not be allowed to carry milk for the babies, medicinal liquids for patient, water for people with sickness and so on.  Having thought this I questioned myself on how could a liquid turnout to be so dangerous where it could be used as a weapon for forced destruction??? And that triggered my pragmatic sense into thinking. Well My first question to self was what is a weapon? As per wikipedia its “A weapon is a tool used to apply or threaten to apply force for the purpose of hunting, attack or defense in combat“. I don’t really agree with this because as a definition it may be true but in reality the application of the force is from Human Being. As seen sometime back in one of the regional movies A real weapon is Human Being(Human Mind in precise). without the application of force from human being everything else becomes just substance. May it be a Gun, Axe, Bomb, missiles, etc. it needs someone to drive it and use it as a weapon. So until it gets into the hands of a human being nothing can be considered harmful, infact most of them will have absolutely no significance and eventually die with rust or decay particles.

Now accepting that a person can be a real weapon it makes us think where or how to restrict it? Its for sure that we can’t ban something like a human body/mind in action. All that we can do is create awareness, let people know the impact of misusing such a weapon, start bringing up kids with positive thoughts, etc. If we fail to do so, the day is not far where we can see people making use of anything and everything as a medium for destruction. Can you imagine a hydro-bomb made up of water which can cause major destruction? And the source could be just water, so should we put restrictions on usage of water? Start thinking as to what is the Real Weapon?????

Inhuman

Does it pain for you when you get a shot(injection)? Does it burn when you apply anti-septic lotion on a cut/wound?does it really hurt badly when they take blood from your body for test purpose? If all these actions, which are executed for your well being, hurts you then can you imagine how it feels like when the throat is slit into pieces? Or the head is severed from the body? Sounds scary right? It may look like a funny/stupid example but yes it really hurts me when I read or hear about thousands of animals being butchered in the name of sacrifice, for the sake of fur/leather, for someone’s entertainment which they call hobby(hunting), etc. Why or how can someone have the heart to execute such inhuman acts or are those who does this taking advantage of being the supreme species on this sphere? Why?why? Why? Don’t these animals have right to live on this earth? What harm have they done to you? Have you ever imagined how would it feel like if someone does the same act on you or your beloved ones? Even a thought like that scares you right? For a moment sit back and think, Life is very precious may it be your’s or the Animal’s, when you don’t have the power to give life you don’t have rights of taking it. If you do so you are being inhuman, a cruel creature who don’t have any trace of civilization and shame on your so called audocity to commit such an act.

I beg you all through this post to think again before committing inhuman act on Animals, coz life once taken cannot be given back, all you can give is a sinful act of yours to this earth which will reflect back to you one day or the other……

I smile when I don’t understand the words what
people say to me. It is like a baby’s innocent face.
I smile when people yell at me, I don’t understand
why they do it to me.My smile is like a baby’ cry.
I smile when I serve people, My smile is the only
way for me to communicate with others. I give
warmth to people and I hope they return it.
I smile when people help me, I slowly understand
how important it is to take my first step and then
walk independently.
I smile when I am tired, I see what I have earned
from the hard work that I have done all the time.
I smile when I finally can listen and speak, The
more I smile the more people treat me like a real
person in this society.

Change!

I am a person who believes change(in any form) is needed for every human being in their day to day life. Else, as known, life becomes monotonous which is not fair enough. There are N scientific reasons to prove change is necessary however I am not in a mood of proving a theory or my point, I just want for share few incidences which I faced recently.

I stay in seattle which is known for it’s rainy and boring climate. Some times it rains continuosly for days. I have got used to it however whenever it rained I thought to myself about sunlight for a change. I think god heard me and here you go… It’s summer and it’s been hot. If you are thinking “what big deal? It’s gotto be hot in summer” then lemme tell you seatlle gets heavy rains even on summer. It’s past one month and there is no sign of rains yet. Many veterans who have stayed in Seattle for long says this is the first time ever in seattle that it hasn’t rained for so long. And now is the time that my mind starts tickling me for change. YES I need some rain, I need the change. This is just one instance, there are several instances that happens on a daily basis that demands for a change proving the fact that “CHANGE is the only term that’s CONSTANT, everything else needs to CHANGE”.

PS: with this post I wanted to experiment if I could write and post one during my one way journey to office which takes about ~30mins. And I think I made it through fairly well within that time. Coooool!!!!!
