Mirror of Soul

Hi friends, here is a health tip which was lying in my inbox since many days and I am publishing it as such for my blog visitors.

During a recent visit to an optician, one of my friends was told of an exercise for the eyes by a specialist doctor in the US that he termed as, "20-20-20". It is apt for all of us, who spend long hours at our desks, looking at the computer screen. I Thought I'd share it with you.

20-20-20 Formula

Step I:
After every 20 minutes of looking into the computer screen, turn your head and try to look at any object placed at least 20 feet away. This changes the focal length of your eyes, a must-do for the tired eyes.
Step II:

Try and blink your eyes for 20 times in succession, to moisten them.
Step III:

Time permitting of course, one should walk 20 paces after every 20 minutes of sitting in one particular posture. Helps blood circulation for the entire body. Circulate among your friends if you care for them and their eyes. They say that your eyes are mirror of your soul, so do take care of them, they are priceless................

Root of Stress

Hi friends, here is an eye opener to all of us who are hell bent on acquiring the best things at the cost of peace. Let us read and realize.

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university Professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the Prof went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups: porcelain, plastic, glass, some plain-looking and some expensive and exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the lecturer said "If you noticed, all the nice-looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups."

"Now, if Life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change. "Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it.

So, don't let the cups drive you...enjoy the coffee instead.

Hi friends, as per the definition, any object may be classified as an antique if it is at least one hundred years old. Whenever we come across the word “antique, we think of ancient coins and sculptures which are the most common old objects we see in our day today life. India is a country which carries a very rich ancient cultural heritage with it and ancient Indian temples and sculptures are some of the richest ancient heritages of the world. Evaluating the value of an antique sculpture should be a real Herculean task even for an expert.

We can see number of ancient temples in India which were built way back before the birth of Jesus Christ. Apart from the main deity, which is the most important and most valuable idol placed inside the sanctum sanatorium, there are number of other small idols placed at different locations in side the temple. There is a great demand for Indian antiques in the world market and Indian Archaeological Department is taking necessary steps to prevent its theft and black marketing.

There are number of voluntary organizations, Government agencies and online communities which are working for preserving these ancient heritages all over the world. Among them I antique online, which is an online community for antique lovers of the world who are interested in collecting, buying and selling antiques. I think is the right place for dealing antiques and there is no doubt that the dealers will get the right price for their antiques. In this form it is a win-win situation for both buyer and seller.
