Happy birth day to you Jesus!

Hi friends, 25th of December the birthday of Jesus Christ is the most auspicious day for majority of the people irrespective of their religious faith and I take this opportunity to wish every human being a merry Christmas. Recently I got a chance to view the DVD version of the most popular English movie “2012” and I enjoyed the movie thoroughly. The director of the film Mr. Roland Emmerich deserves all sorts of appreciation for his imaginative work. Though we hear stories and prophesies about end of the world in the year 2012, I never believed them even for a moment for various reasons. Even in the 2012 film, the director tried his level best to make people believe what they have watched; I treat it only as a fiction which is meant for enjoyment. I feel, predicting such a large scale disaster which involves the destruction of entire creation of Lord Almighty is not at all possible for any human being. I hope human race can celebrate Jesus birthday for millions of years and he will guide us to live a harmonious life along with other creatures in the Nature. Kind Jesus will not tolerate such suffering shown in the movie to his children and if you are a real believer be assured that you are protected all the time by Him.

Are you concerned about the disappearing playing ground in schools?

Hi friends, last week end I traveled about 700 kilometers to attend my mother’s death anniversary rituals at Kasaragod (my birth place) and it was not a pleasant journey for me for various reasons. During the entire bus journey I was looking out side the window and observing the various changes taken place in our society. I would like to confine this post to the subject of depleting infrastructure in schools in developing countries like India. I always believe that playing games is a part of curricular activities in schools and it is the fundamental right of children to play and enjoy. When I was young, our schools used to have big play grounds as spacious as those schools where all students were accommodated. In those days as students we used to give equal importance to both studies and games without bothering much about our future with respect to our professional life. Even our parents were not over ambitious like the present generation parents about their children’s future and allowing us to enjoy our normal school activities without putting much pressure on us. But things have taken a u turn and school going children are not a free bird any more and lot of things are expected from them at this tender age at the cost of freedom and enjoyment. The exponential growth of population is a main cause of this unhealthy activity in the field of education and one can see a gradual decrease in the basic infrastructure provided in schools. The existing school buildings are insufficient to accommodate the large number of students who are admitted to schools and new buildings are occupying the playing grounds thus denying the students enjoyment and healthy physique. Spacious playing grounds are slowly disappearing to make room for new buildings. I feel pity for the present generation school going children who neither have freedom nor free time to play. Even if they manage to create some free time for extracurricular activities, many schools are not having a proper play ground. Under such condition how can we expect our children to be healthy both physically and mentally?

Take care of your parents. They are precious!

Hi friends, being a blogger I need to post useful contents every now and then to attract visitors to my site and I never miss opportunities to convert information received from any source as a blog post. The following content is a narration by an Indian Air Force pilot Mr.Venkatesh Balasubramaniam in a seminar on Human relations. Here, Venkatesh explains how his gesture of booking an air ticket for his father, his maiden flight, brought forth a rush of emotions and made him realize that how much we all take for granted when it comes to our parents. As soon as I saw this information in my Gmail inbox, I have decided to post it on my website because I am always having a guilty feeling of not treating my parents fairly and when I realized my mistake it was very late. The following narration by a son about his parents feeling should be an eye opener to all those children who think old aged parents are a burden. All credit of this post should go only to Venkatesh who opened his heart without any hesitation in front of a large gathering.

My parents left for our native place on Thursday and we went to the airport to see them off. In fact, my father had never traveled by air before, so I just took this opportunity to make him experience the same. In spite of being asked to book tickets by train, I got them tickets on Jet Airways. The moment I handed over the tickets to him, he was surprised to see that I had booked them by air. The excitement was very apparent on his face, waiting for the time of travel. Just like a school boy, he was preparing himself on that day and we all went to the airport, right from using the trolley for his luggage, the baggage check-in and asking for a window seat and waiting restlessly for the security check-in to happen. He was thoroughly enjoying himself and I, too, was overcome with joy watching him experience all these things.

As they were about to go in for the security check-in, he walked up to me with tears in his eyes and thanked me. He became very emotional and it was not as if I had done something great but the fact that this meant a great deal to him. When he said thanks, I told him there was no need to thank me. But later, thinking about the entire incident, I looked back at my life. As a child, how many dreams our parents have made come true. Without understanding the financial situation, we ask for cricket bats, dresses, toys, outings, etc. Irrespective of their affordability, they have catered to all our needs. Did we ever think about the sacrifices they had to make to accommodate many of our wishes? Did we ever say thanks for all that they have done for us? Same way, today when it comes to our children, we always think that we should put them in a good school. Regardless of the amount of donation, we will ensure that we will have to give the child the best, theme parks, toys, etc. But we tend to forget that our parents have sacrificed a lot for our sake to see us happy, so it is our responsibility to ensure that their dreams are realized and what they failed to see when they were young. It is our responsibility to ensure that they experience all those and their life is complete.

Many times, when my parents had asked me some questions, I have actually answered back without patience. When my daughter asks me something, I have been very polite in answering. Now I realize how they would have felt at those moments. Let us realize that old age is a second childhood and just as we take care of our children, the same attention and same care needs to be given to our parents and elders. Rather than my dad saying thank you to me, I would want to say sorry for making him wait so long for this small dream. I do realize how much he has sacrificed for my sake and I will do my best to give the best possible attention to all their wishes.

Just because they are old does not mean that they will have to give up everything and keep sacrificing for their grandchildren also. They have wishes, too.

Take care of your parents. THEY ARE PRECIOUS.

Chanakya’s Quotes: Part 2

Hi friends, the remaining quotes of Chanakya are below and I hope we can apply many of these quotes to specific situations which may arise in our day to day life. I feel, only a person like Chanakya with a very strong will power can speak like this which is remembered even after 2000 years. Again I want to thank and link the site Brainy Quote” from where I have copied these valuable quotes.

He who lives in our mind is near though he may actually be far away; but he who is not in our heart is far though he may really be nearby.

If one has a good disposition, what other virtue is needed? If a man has fame, what is the value of other ornamentation?

It is better to die than to preserve this life by incurring disgrace. The loss of life causes but a moment's grief, but disgrace brings grief every day of one's life.

Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status. Such friendships will never give you any happiness.

O wise man! Give your wealth only to the worthy and never to others. The water of the sea received by the clouds is always sweet.

Once you start a working on something, don't be afraid of failure and don't abandon it. People who work sincerely are the happiest.

One whose knowledge is confined to books and whose wealth is in the possession of others can use neither his knowledge nor wealth when the need for them arises.

Purity of speech, of the mind, of the senses, and of a compassionate heart are needed by one who desires to rise to the divine platform.

Test a servant while in the discharge of his duty, a relative in difficulty, a friend in adversity, and a wife in misfortune.

The biggest guru-mantra is: never share your secrets with anybody. It will destroy you.

The earth is supported by the power of truth; it is the power of truth that makes the sun shine and the winds blow; indeed all things rest upon truth.

The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all direction.

The happiness and peace attained by those satisfied by the nectar of spiritual tranquility is not attained by greedy persons restlessly moving here and there.

The life of an uneducated man is as useless as the tail of a dog which neither covers its rear end, nor protects it from the bites of insects.

The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearted and strenuous effort.

The serpent, the king, the tiger, the stinging wasp, the small child, the dog owned by other people, and the fool: these seven ought not to be awakened from sleep.

The wise man should restrain his senses like the crane and accomplish his purpose with due knowledge of his place, time and ability.

The world's biggest power is the youth and beauty of a woman.

There is no austerity equal to a balanced mind, and there is no happiness equal to contentment; there is no disease like covetousness, and no virtue like mercy.

There is poison in the fang of the serpent, in the mouth of the fly and in the sting of a scorpion; but the wicked man is saturated with it.

There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.

Treat your kid like a darling for the first five years. For the next five years, scold them. By the time they turn sixteen, treat them like a friend. Your grown up children are your best friends.

We should not fret for what is past, nor should we be anxious about the future; men of discernment deal only with the present moment.

Whores don't live in company of poor men, citizens never support a weak company and birds don't build nests on a tree that doesn't bear fruits.

Chanakya’s Quotes: Part 1

Hi friends continuing my post about Chanakya, he was a very religious person and known for his straightforwardness. He was a professor at the then world famous Takshashila University and some of the quotes extracted from his books are very famous in India and I can say those quotes written about 2000 years ago are more relevant to present conditions than ever and you will agree with me after going through some of his famous quotes. I copied them from “Brainy Quote”. Since I felt some of these quotes are very useful in dealing with critical situations, I am publishing them as blog post.

A good wife is one who serves her husband in the morning like a mother does, loves him in the day like a sister does and pleases him like a prostitute in the night.

A man is born alone and dies alone; and he experiences the good and bad consequences of his karma alone; and he goes alone to hell or the Supreme abode.

A man is great by deeds, not by birth.

A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.

As a single withered tree, if set aflame, causes a whole forest to burn, so does a rascal son destroy a whole family.

As long as your body is healthy and under control and death is distant, try to save your soul; when death is immanent what can you do?

As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it.

Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions - Why am I doing it, what the results might be and will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.

Books are as useful to a stupid person as a mirror is useful to a blind person.

Do not be very upright in your dealings for you would see by going to the forest that straight trees are cut down while crooked ones are left standing.

Do not reveal what you have thought upon doing, but by wise council keep it secret being determined to carry it into execution.

Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.

Even if a snake is not poisonous, it should pretend to be venomous.

God is not present in idols. Your feelings are your god. The soul is your temple.

He who is overly attached to his family members experiences fear and sorrow, for the root of all grief is attachment. Thus one should discard attachment to be happy.

Financial mismanagement! Et tu, Dubai?

Hi friends, we are still in the process of recovery from the self created economic crisis but the recent shocking news from Dubai may hinder this process to some extent. As published on “The post.IE”, Dubai, once the poster child of global economic boom, looks like becoming the symbol of its collapse, with major question marks over its financial health. When I first read this story I remembered the famous quote from Julius Caesar, Et tu, Btute? and I never imagined that a country like Dubai with the blessings of our ancestors in the form of fossil fuel resources will lose its face on economic fronts. (Read my post written long back: “Are we enjoying on debris of our ancestors”) Can the already weaken world economy with stand another turbulence without sinking? And only time will give the real answer to this question because in economics contradictory answers are given by different experts keeping in mind their interest. One of the basic reasons for all economic crisis which we have seen in recent past either globally as a whole or in individual countries is the failure to assess our own economic strength and in India our moms use to call it as stretching legs beyond our bed. I have published a post “Remembering my mom and her proverb” long back about this subject and some people criticized my views. Dubai economic disaster is a fresh case of economic mismanagement which has given sudden shock to all of us. Since we are living in a global village, any blunder committed in one part of the village is bound to create problems in other parts. So it is necessary for the economists to observe some discipline that are planning and advising governments on day to day basis so as to keep the progress in a normal way. Whenever I hear the stories of economic mismanagement from the responsible Governments, I remember the most powerful historical personality of India Chanakya who is known for his practical approach in successfully dealing with any political situation. He was the most honest and shrewd politician ever seen and if you have a deep knowledge of world history including India, you will agree with my opinion. I think Chanakya is the most ideal kingmaker because he has chosen an ordinary person like Chnadragupta who was not having any sort of back ground either political or financial, established a kingdom from nothing and made him the king of Pataliputra. He has guided Chandragupta in all aspects of ruling and he became the most ideal emperor in the history of India. The book “Arthashastra” written by Chanakya is still considered as the best ancient Indian treatise on statecraft, economic policy and military strategy and the economic disciplines explained in the book if followed in letter and spirit with changes to present conditions will create a heaven for all of us in the earth itself. Those who have read this book have called Chanakya as Indian Machiavelli. According to Chanakya, country’s interest stands first and everything follows next and the book “Arthashastra” teaches how to rule and keep your citizen happy. Though this book was written in 350-283 BCE, Chanakya’s economic visions are relevant to present modern world and we can practice and get benefited from them which are unique in many ways.

Hi friends I will put a break to this post and continue tomorrow……….

Prevention is better than cure: Part -5

Hi friends, continuing my discussion on importance of water with respect to preventing occurrence of various types of diseases I would like to share some important health benefits of drinking water on empty stomach. Similar to pranayama (breathing exercise) which may be called as oxygen therapy, drinking water in a scientific and systematic manner is called as water therapy and it has become more popular in Japan than in any other country. Japanese made a sincere effort to study the health benefits of drinking water on empty stomach and the Japanese medical society has come out with a study report according to which one can get 100% cure for the following common disease.

Headache and Body ache

Blood pressure and Heart system


Fast heart beat


Excess fatness

Bronchitis asthma



Kidney and urine diseases







All types of eye diseases

Womb cancer and menstrual disorders

Ear nose and throat diseases

The method of this water therapy is very simple and free of any expenditure except dedication and belief in what you are doing. The person who follows water therapy will be free of any pain nuisance.

Routine procedures to be adopted in water therapy

Drink about 600 ml water as soon as you get up from bed before brushing teeth

Don’t consume anything for 45 minutes and you may proceed with brushing during this period.

Take your normal breakfast and drinks after 45 minutes.

After breakfast, lunch and dinner don’t eat or drink anything for about 2 hours.

For aged people, drinking as much as 600 ml water at a stretch may be a Herculean task and such people can acclimatize to this habit by drinking lesser quantity in the initial days. Water therapy can be practiced life long without any side effects; but you need to practice it for a minimum period if you want to see remarkable difference in patient’s condition.

Blood Pressure

30 days


10 days


30 days


10 days


180 days


90 days

So friends, Mother Nature has provided us everything to live happily without any diseases and it is left to our wisdom to use them properly and live happily.

Prevention is better than cure: Part -4

Hi friends, as we all know regular intake of water containing enough content of dissolved oxygen will activate our internal organs. I still remember those days when my mother used to boil water and preserve it in an earthen pot and insist us only to drink boiled and cooled water from the pot every now and then. Though my mother was not educated woman, she was having general knowledge about the importance of drinking pure water to remain healthy. In those days in early sixties we have not heard of the so called water therapy but we were partially practicing them under the guidance of our mom. We were taught that by drinking boiled and cooled water we can remain healthy and avoid medicines. I think though it looks very simple, enough water consumption along with proper diet preferably vegetarian may be a solution for many health problems which we are facing today. Breathing pollution free air rich in oxygen and drinking pure water saturated with dissolved oxygen will help our metabolism and strengthen our immune system. I received the following health tips on water intake from my friend and we can prevent many diseases by practicing those tips. Though drinking water is beneficial for our body all the time, one can maximize its effectiveness by drinking at a proper time. Two glasses of water after waking up in the morning helps activate our internal organs. One full glass of water about 30 minutes before meals helps proper digestion. One glass of water before going for bath is good for lowering blood pressure. And last but not the least, a glass of water before going to bed will keep you away from killer diseases like stroke and heart attack. I think we cannot find a cheap and effective detoxifier than water and it is wise to utilize it to a maximum extent.

There are many simple ways through which we can avoid visits to hospitals and save our hard earned money for other useful purposes.

Is non vegetarian food habit causing global warming?

Hi friend, continuing my discussion about prevention is better than cure I would like to mention here an alarming report by a group of scientists who were on the job of finding reasons for the so called global warming. The group of scientists who worked on this project which is known as “Kyoto Protocol” came out with a list of reasons for global warming. The list contains various known human activities which are directly responsible for increase in ambient temperature. According to a well-known social activist from India Mr, Rajiv Dixit, the Protocol came to a definite conclusion that unhealthy life styles adopted by human being are also responsible for global warming apart from carbon burning. According the study report, meat eating or non vegetarian food habit practiced by human being all over the world played an important role in global warming as well as polluting all components of our biosphere. After attending the summit on climatic change, Mr. Jayaram Ramesh, minister of state for environment and forest, Government of India, released a press statement that humans diet of cow and pig meats are also contributes to its share for global warming and pollution. I feel when our unnatural activity of eating non vegetarian food is capable of making dents to environmental health, how our body will be spared where the activity is taking place? As we human are herbivores and eating non vegetarian food against Nature and our body nature is bound to produce negative energy which is harmful to our body as well as environment. I think the time has come for us to make changes to our existing life style slowly and steadily so as to give a chance to our future generations to lead a healthy life. I wonder among millions of organisms present in nature why only human beings are suffering from different types of diseases?

Prevention is better than cure: Part -3

He friends, Because of the tight schedule of my professional activities I am still not finding enough time to enjoy my most favorite hobby – blogging. I like to enter my friends sites and leave my mark there as a proof of my visit. Like all other bloggers, I also want to see more number of visitors to my site and to make it happen every day; I need to write some thing special. Today I have made up my mind to write a post about health and I want to type my learning in SSY classes and camps. As I have mentioned in my earlier post Spiritual practice and food, food plays a very important role as far as leading a healthy life is concerned. My Guruji’s argument about food was very special and he used to give scientific explanations to these arguments. Rishi Prabhakar says, there are millions of living organisms in this biosphere and nature has provided a specific type of food for each organism. A herbivore creature either very strong like an elephant or a very tiny one, both will stick only to vegetarian food and a carnivore creature will eat only meat of other creatures. Internal as well as external parts of the body of these organisms are helping to collect their food and digest them properly and convert to useful calories. Digestive parts of an herbivore are different from that of a carnivore and length of intestine varies from species to species. According to scientists, we human are herbivore mammals and our digestive system including intestine is fit for vegetarian food and any deviation in selection of food may not be a wise idea. He says, compared to various creatures of this biosphere only human are prone to different type of diseases and selection of wrong food is the main reason for this development. Because of food habits which are against to our body nature we are inviting trouble for us in the form of killer diseases and we are spending most of our energy in fighting these self invited enemies. Then how to prevent these diseases from occurring? My teacher declares, going to Nature and living green is the only option through which we can live happily like other species of our planet. Since our body design is made for vegetarian food, we need to eat mainly vegetarian, preferably raw. Rishi Prabhakar has proved beyond doubt many a times through his yoga classes and sessions that one can lead a happy, disease free life following vegetarian food habits and changing life style. One of the most powerful animals in the earth is elephant and it eats only vegetarian food and from this example we can learn that -if you eat what you are suppose to eat and able to digest what you ate, you can remain as fit as an elephant. Like human beings what will happen to an elephant if it eats meat of some other animal?

Prevention is better than cure: Part -2

Hi friends, continuing my discussion about health, I would like to memorize gist of teachings of my Guruji Rishi Prabhakar which are directed towards human health. I will utilize this opportunity to give a brief introduction of my teacher. Born in southern part of India, Prabhakar popularly known as Rishi Prabhakar is a well educated person having degrees in various disciplines including Engineering degree from Bangalore University, Engineering Master Degree from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada and MBA Degree from University of Western Ontario. After spending few years of his life in Canada, he returned to his mother land stayed in isolation for few years experimenting on various yoga combination and food on his own body. After getting convinced about benefits of his teaching which he was about to spread to his fellow human beings, he established SSY and I am very proud to say that millions of people are benefited from his teachings on both spiritual as well as health front all over the world. Since he was basically a scientist, he gave scientific reasoning for his teachings and processes which are part and parcel of his yoga secessions. A 15 minutes meditation taught by Guruji is not only a stepping stone for higher consciousness but a ladder to reach a non problem state. Guruji says that to be joyous within oneself is every one's birth-right. Though the mediation we practice in SSY is only for 15 minutes, it creates miracle on the practitioner’s body and mind. According to Guruji, nature of food to body and mind are the two main factors which influences our overall health and if you want to be free of any diseases including physical and mental health, you need to be selective in these matters. He practices what he preaches and sets example for his followers. His life is a guide to lead a disease free happy life and SSY teachings if followed holistically, one can live longer and enjoy materialistic life or spiritual life as per his leanings. He emphasizes the importance of eating raw food and other vegetarian food and according to him, we humans are herbivorous mammals and our only food is vegetarian. He says any compromise in this matter is foolish as far as overall wellness is concerned. I have already dealt with this important subject in my blog post spiritual practice and food. My Guruji says, regular meditation for 15 minutes 3 times a day combined with yoga practice (breathing exercise and physical exercise) and vegetarian food preferably larger portion of raw food will keep you away from any sort of pain( both physical and mental).

Hi friends, we can prevent any type of disease, common or killer by following the path shown by Rishi Prabhakar.

Prevention is better than cure: Part -1

Hi friends, after attempting few posts about environmental and financial health I want to move to the field of human health and create a blog post on how to prevent chronic ailments. As I have mentioned in my recent post, I am serving in an organization with strong fundamentals on all aspects of Industrial activities and they give utmost care to employee wellness. In addition to all sort of medical facilities and financial help to meet additional expenses, my organization tries to bring health awareness among its employees through e-magazines and this blog post is inspired by one such magazine which is distributed to us through our company website. According to the definition published by the World health Organization, the concept of health is very broad comprising of all three aspects of wellness of human life including physical, mental, and social. According to the oldest treatment system of the world Ayurveda, mental health and physical health are two sides of a coin and you cannot enjoy one without other. As Swamy Vivekananda declared one cannot have a healthy mind in a weak body, we need to focus on both fronts to remain healthy and enjoy our life to its full extent. Cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and hypertension are the most common ailments and they become life threatening if neglected for a longer period. Though all these problems are considered as physical ailments, they are directly connected our mental health and we need to give enough attention to our mental health to keep our self away from the so called killer diseases. As we all know, prevention is better than cure and I think this proverb is more relevant to the present world than ever simply because majority of us cannot afford the expenses of treating such diseases. According to Ayurveda, food plays an important role in maintaining our mental health and mental health plays more important role in maintaining your physical health. All the above said ailments are not appearing suddenly and it is a gradual build up because of our modern life style, as well as unscientific and unhealthy food selection. Another major contributor is the work environment stress and you need to find ways to cope up with this unavoidable situation. I am a member of Siddha Samadhi Yoga and some of the guidelines given by my Guru, Rishi Prabhakar are very helpful in achieving the overall human health with respect to the definition given by the WHO. I will put a break to this post and continue it tomorrow.

Be loyal to Mother Nature

Hi friends, I am serving in a blue-chip Indian manufacturing industry and I am very proud to be part of this organization for many reasons. We Indians are emotionally get attached to anything we are associated with and as far as employee employers relationship is concerned it is treated just not a contract but as a sweet responsibility given to the employee by the employer. An employee will always try his level best to please his employer and remain loyal to his organization during his service. I am also one such employee and all these years of years of service I worked at various positions with all humbleness and loyalty. My organization is one of the main pillars of Indian Industries with strong fundamentals and I am really liked the long sighted approach of my business leaders during the recent economic turbulence. In spite of having vast reserve resources, Chairman of our organization advised all his managers and officers to cut expenditure wherever possible and spend every dollar as is it is your last one. To keep the financial health of the organization intact and sustain the achieved growth, each and every one of us has supplemented his emergency measures. We have sacrificed many comforts of industrial life and successfully met the challenges of recession without any hiccups. We have minimized usage of oil run vehicles, electricity, water, air-conditioners and so on which not only helped my organization to improve productivity but helped our environment. By minimizing usage of oil and other fuels we have reduced our share of green house gas generation which is one of the positive aspects of economic recession. Similar precautionary steps were taken by majority of industrial houses in India and survived the turbulence appeared on the economic front. When we can scarifies some of our basic comforts and make changes in our life style for many months to maintain the financial health of our organization, why can’t we scarifies some more for maintaining the health of our environment and save our planet from environmental disasters ? I have discussed positive aspects of bad economy with respect to environment in my blog post Bad economy- good for future generation published many months ago. I believe, the time has come for us to think and act in the direction of using renewable energies available in nature freely and put a break to fossil fuel usage. We try to remain loyal to very thing but why not to Mother Nature?
