HEALTH AWARENESS - Malnutrition October, 2017

Malnutrition, is the situation where there is an unbalanced diet in which some nutrients are in excess, lacking or with out any proportion.
When we talk about malnutrition,
A question arises in our mind does malnutrition really exists ?
               These questions arise in our mind because, we never seen poverty And malnutrition, so closely..
But malnutrition exists, around us and we don't spare our time to know.
Despite humongous growth of Indian GDP from last 20 years we still have one third of worlds malnourished children.



 Why ?    How ?   Who ?   When ?     Where ?
These are the doubts you may get regarding malnutrition.
Actually you should know because it is serious threat to our nation.

            Why ?
·         Malnutrition is caused by these main reasons.
·         Lack of quantity of food.
·         Lack of quality of food.
·         Lack of care of children.
·         Poverty.
·         Culture.
·         Diaputes in parents.
·         Priorities of parents.
·         Presdisposing diseases which lead to
             mal absorbtion or lack of appetite.

How ?
·         Yeahh., Malnutrition is not a disease which spreads from one person to another, but it still is spreading because of lack of awareness.
·         Because lack of proper care.
·         And also because people don't know it as a problem.
·         So, it still prevails silently or violently in our society.
·         If you keep low economic status as a reason aside actual reason for malnutrition is lack of awareness.
 Who?
Yes, who is good question.
·         Answer for that is : Anyone.
·         Anyone is prone to malnutrition. Even malnutrition is found in Rich families. But reasons may be different.
·         Eighter due to lack of time for parents or lack of proper care.
·         But comparatively we have very less children who are malnourished in people of high socio economic status than people of low socio economic status.

When?
If you ask when ?
·         When you there is mal nourishment there will be malnutrition.
·         But the young the child is the more severe the child is affected.

Where ?
·         It is not like just people of India. It is affected in mostly all parts of the world.
·         But severity is more in south Asian and African countries.

Consequences of malnutrition

The consequences of malnutrition are,
·         Retarded Growth
·         Deminished health.
·         Deminished immunity - > prone to diseases.
·         Affect in mental health.
·         And many other problems.
                             So, malnutrition is a problem which Indian government is trying to eradicate but it is not successful because there are wonderful schemes like mid day meal. Supplies of suppliments through anganwadi schools.And many NGO's are also working on it.But problem is lack of awareness. And lack of zeal in Society to eradicate this serious threat. So, hope for the best start educating other regarding malnutrition. It was simple overall explanation on malnutrition.

But if you are serious about, malnutrition i have 
a home work for you.

Reply me by searching for few questions.
What are indicators of malnutrition ?
What is P. E. M ?
What is kwashiorkor ?
What is marasmus ?
What are problems of over nourishment ?

Balance between Outer and Inner World of Knowledge October, 2017

             Knowledge is taking in different colors and assimilating it to become a rainbow for others. Knowledge is accumulation of facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education, the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject (or) awareness or familiarity gained by experience of a fact or situation. Knowledge is just knowledge, it cannot be divided into worldly or hereafter. People who make these divisions think Money is the only product of the worldly knowledge but it is not. Knowledge should be acquired not with an intention to earn money, power or fame but just to be knowledgeable. Money is a by-product of your knowledge and it is knowledge that gifts you wealth as a by-product. Now the knowledge which has been acquired how can it be spread across or used for the benefit of others. Others who others. Others are a part of community or society we live in. The knowledge needs to be translated in the way other's can be benefited. Knowledge needs language or expression which other's can understand. And that is the job which knowledge provides you to fulfill few needs of the society. Society pays you back by giving you money or responsibility or power or fame. If you don't want these from the society fine ask them to pay through smiles.

    
             So the education system which is a medium to acquire knowledge has to touch vast and deep topics, vaster than the universe and deeper than the earth. It should be both of the Inner and Outer World. When we Humans and Nature are creation of God. Inner world's knowledge can be biological, emotional, psychological or spiritual from Human's perspective. Outer world's knowledge consists of social, anthropological, historical, geographical, astronomical, material and so on. So Knowledge both inner and outer is equally important and is a vast field to reach out to. If one color is missed rainbow cannot be formed.
                                              When we are knowledgeable we are bound to have learning based on perspectives because we have limitations. Knowledge is an ocean and a human can only drink a drop from it. But should the drop be just of inner knowledge or outer knowledge. There needs to be a balance. The difference in opinions are nothing but understanding of the same philosophy in a different perspective. Perspectives might be different but the truth is one. So if I bring this philosophy and implement in the form of observation of how Quran's truth has got it's perspectives. When we take the example of Sunnah and Quran, there are different perspectives to it. Few go into the deeper meanings, few just follow the literal sayings, few just want to by heart them, few would love to take Quran and Sunnah as base for scientific discoveries and inventions, few might love the poetic nature and excellence of Quran, few might see the historical and geographical relevance of it, few might see how it impacts social structure and brings on activism, few just read and enjoy it's beauty, few take it and implement in healing processes and on and on we find the same Quran and Sunnah being taken as base to construct the society around us and help it in its growth. So there is no conflict of interest everyone is doing his job perfectly fine. It would be ridiculous to say a Doctor is better than an Engineer, that is how I see one sect cursing other. Similarly I see religious cursing the worldly. Inner cursing the outer. Hold your difference of perspectives to appreciate others not to degrade them and humiliate other sects to uphold yours. The secular knowledge only expands our horizons of learning for inclusive living.
                                            The past glory of Muslims in Science was not the result of separation of science and religion example Ibn Sina and Canon of Medicine. Those revolutionary Muslim scientists were truly devoted to religion and became more spiritual while carrying out their scientific studies. There were no contradictions between their scientific thinking and their religious thinking, it only enhance their growth as a human and soul. In fact, the driving force behind their scientific discoveries was the Quranic command to observe the signs of God spread throughout the Universe. But if you feel today's scientific thinking is in contradiction with Quran why don't you stand up and prove them wrong using their own methods.
                                      Why are we getting aloof from the secular learning? Why is this division of Deen and Duniya? I want to share my own example here. The more I learnt from this world more did my faith in God increase. I have learnt from multiple mediums like Science and Technology, Film Making and Theatre, Sociology and Anthropology, Psychology, Pedagogy and Teaching Methodology, Tibb(Medicine) and when I come back and read Quran and it's Tafsir (Interpretation) I find these methods can be used aligned with it. There is no contradiction. We have to think how? As the eras changed, mediums changed, didn't our ancestors make use of those technologies and developments, are we not using mobile phones created by others, are we not using internet being created by others, why do we have this inhibition against the medium, if at all we should be concerned it should be about the content. Medium is never a problem content is. Why don't we contribute to the development of society as many in the past did?
Knowledge of the outer world and inner world needs to be balanced. The door between the inner-world and outer-world is where I stand. I find a tremendous connect between both. Same level of corruptions on both the sides, same kind of freedom movements inside and outside, same oblivions and confusions. Those who claim to be searching heaven in hereafter are equally lost as much as those who are trying to find an idealistic society here in this world. I stand here as a mere observer, that troubles me. In other words, human reason can subdue the forces of nature but cannot by itself find a satisfactory solution to the complexity of the problems of humankind. The holistic or integrative approach is the only way to balancing both aspects of human existence Duniya (the outer world) as well as Deen(the inner world) which is to acquire knowledge of the forces of the Universe and to use its power for the benefit of all humankind without any discrimination whatsoever. This is how we can create long-term balance between the outer and inner worlds. Yes, it is an ideal society I am talking about but Idealism is what I learnt from the belief in heaven. So let us find a balance and I am sure we will get it sooner or later.

INCREDIBLE INDIA - GOLCONDA FORT October, 2017

                       
                        Golconda Fort is located in the western part of Hyderabad city and is about 9 km from the Hussain Sagar Lake. The outer fort occupies an area of three square kilometers, which is 4.8 kilometers in length. It was originally known as Mankal, and built on a hilltop in the year 1143. It was originally a mud fort under the reign of Rajah of Warangal. Later it was fortified between 14th and 17th centuries by the Bahmani Sultans and then the ruling Qutub Shahi dynasty. Golconda was the principal capital of the Qutub Shahi kings. The inner fort contains ruins of palaces, mosques and a hill top pavilion, which rises about 130 meters high and gives a bird’s eye view of other building.  Golconda fort is undoubtedly one of most magnificent fortress complexes in India. The history of Golconda Fort goes back to early 13th century, when it was ruled by the Kakatiya’s followed by Qutub Shahi kings, who ruled the region in 16th and 17th century. The fortress rests on a granite hill 120 meters high while huge crenellated ramparts surround this structure.
                                      It was initially called Shepherd’s Hill, meaning Golla Konda in Telugu while according to legend, on this rocky hill a shepherd boy had come across an idol and the information was conveyed to the ruling Kakatiya king at that time. The king constructed a mud fort around this holy spot and after 200 years, Bahamani rulers took possession of the place. Later the Qutub Shahi kings converted this into massive granite fort extending 5km in circumference. The fort is considered a mute witness to historic events. The Qutub Shahis reign at Golconda ended in 1687 when it was run over by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, who intentionally left it in ruins

              Golconda still boasts of mounted cannons, four drawbridges, eight gateways, and majestic halls, magazines, stables etc. The outermost enclosure is called Fateh Darwaza meaning Victory gate, after Aurangzeb’s army marched successfully through this gate. At Fateh Darwaza one can witness fantastic acoustical effects, which is one among the many famous engineering marvels at Golconda. Clapping your hand at a certain point near the dome entrance reverberates which is heard clearly at the hill top pavilion, almost one kilometer away. This served as a warning note to the inhabitants of the fort of any impending danger, Ofcourse it now amuses visitors. The fort gains an impressive place among the architectural marvels and heritage structures of India and is a testimony to Hyderabad’s glorious past.
Golconda fort is located at a distance of nearly 11 km from Hyderabad and is accessible by road.

When in doubt, Wear JEANS ! October, 2017

                        It's difficult to find a garment as widely embraced, worn and loved the world over as jeans. The classic symbol of the American West is now a staple in wardrobes around the world. They were affordable and hard-wearing, looked good worn as well as new, and didn't have to be washed often or ironed at all. They conformed to the body in a way that matched even the most finely tailored clothes. This became especially important for women because then, as now, they paid more attention to fit.
          Ask any group of people why they wear jeans and you will get a range of answers. For some they're comfortable, durable and easy - for others they're sexy and cool. Jeans mean different things to different people. Does this explain their wide appeal?


  Today, jeans are mostly sold pre-shrunk and pre-worn. Jeans have become this neutral foundational garment. If you want to show you are relaxed, if you want to be relaxed, you wear jeans …

About
                           Chopra studied medicine in India before emigrating to the United States in 1970 where he completed residencies in internal medicine and endocrinology. As a licensed physician, he became chief of staff at the New England Memorial Hospital (NEMH) in 1980. He met Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1985 and became involved with the Transcendental Meditation movement (TM). He resigned his position at NEMH shortly thereafter to establish the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center. Chopra gained a following in 1993 after his interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show regarding his books.  He then left the TM movement to become the executive director of Sharp HealthCare's Center for Mind-Body Medicine and in 1996 he co-founded the Chopra Center for Well being.
                               Chopra believes that a person may attain "perfect health", a condition "that is free from disease, that never feels pain", and "that cannot age or die". Seeing the human body as being undergirded by a "quantum mechanical body" composed not of matter but of energy and information, he believes that "human aging is fluid and changeable; it can speed up, slow down, stop for a time, and even reverse itself," as determined by one's state of mind. He claims that his practices can also treat chronic disease. As of 2014, Deepak Chopra lived in a "health-centric" condominium in Manhattan.
