HEALTH AWARENESS - Food is thy Medicine November, 2017

Turmeric is used as a spice in curry powders and mustard. It is being investigated in clinical trials for the treatment and prevention of cancers, particularly of the gastrointestinal tract, and for treatment of colitis and Alzheimer and Huntington diseases.
                                 According to the Journal of the American Chemical Society, turmeric contains a wide range of antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic and anti-inflammatory properties.

                       It is also loaded with many healthy nutrients such as protein, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, potassium, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc. Due to all these factors, turmeric is often used to treat a wide variety of health problems.

What is the recommended dosage?
                           Powdered turmeric root has traditionally been used as a stimulant and carminative at dosages of 0.5 to 3 g/day. Dosages of 3 to 6 g/day have been investigated to protect against ulcers. Daily oral doses of curcumin 3.6 g have been typically used in clinical trials, but dosages of curcumin up to 8 g/day have been used. Higher doses are associated with adverse GI effects

How does it work?
                           Turmeric contains the chemical curcumin. Curcumin and other chemicals in turmeric might decrease swelling (inflammation). Because of this, turmeric might be beneficial for treating conditions that involve inflammation.
·         Stomach ulcers. Some research suggests that taking turmeric three times daily for 8 weeks does not improve stomach ulcers. Also, taking powdered turmeric four times daily for 6 weeks seems to be less effective than taking a conventional antacid.

·         Alzheimer's disease. Early research shows that taking curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, daily for 6 months does  benefit people with Alzheimer's disease.
·         Eye inflammation (anterior uveitis). Early research suggests that taking curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, might improve symptoms of long-term inflammation in the middle layer of the eye.
·         Colorectal cancer. Early research suggests that taking a specific turmeric product containing turmeric extract and Javanese turmeric extract (P54FP, Phytopharm plc., Godmanchester, United Kingdom) might stabilize some measures of colon cancer. There is also early evidence that taking curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, daily for 30 days can reduce the number of precancerous glands in the colon of people at high risk of cancer.
·         By pass surgery (coronary artery bypass graft surgery). Early research suggests that taking curcuminoids, which are chemicals found in turmeric, starting 3 days before surgery and continuing for 5 days after surgery can lower the risk of a heart attack following bypass surgery.
·         Skin wounds related to cancer. Early research suggests that applying a turmeric ointment might help to relieve odor and itching caused by wounds associated with different types of cancer.
·         A type of inflammatory bowel disease called Crohn's disease. Some evidence suggests that taking curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, daily for one month can reduce bowel movements, diarrhea, and stomach pain in people with Crohn's disease.
·         Depression. Early research suggests that taking curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, twice daily for 6 weeks is as effective as the antidepressant medication fluoxetine in people with depression.
·         Diabetes. Early research suggests that taking turmeric extract twice daily for 9 months can reduce the number of people with prediabetes who develop diabetes.
·         Stomach upset (dyspepsia). Some research shows that taking turmeric by mouth four times daily for 7 days might help improve an upset stomach.
·         Gum disease (gingivitis). Early research suggests that using a turmeric mouthwash is as effective as a drug-therapy mouthwash for reducing gum disease and bacteria levels in the mouth of people with gingivitis.

·         Stomach ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) infection. Early research suggests that taking turmeric daily for 4 weeks is less effective than conventional treatment for eliminating certain bacteria (H. pylori) that can cause stomach ulcers.
·         Boosts Immunity : Curcumin has a huge therapeutic value and boosting immunity is one of the most important properties of curcumin.
·         Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Early research suggests that taking a turmeric extract (Cynara Turmeric, Lchtwer Pharma) daily for 8 weeks reduces the occurrence of IBS in people with IBS who are otherwise healthy.
·         Joint pain. Research shows that taking a specific combination product (Instaflex Joint Support, Direct Digital, Charlotte, NC) containing turmeric and other ingredients three times daily for 8 weeks reduces the severity of joint pain. But it does not appear to help joint stiffness or improve joint function.
·         Skin rash (Lichen planus). Taking a certain product (Curcumin C3 Complex, Sabinsa Corp) containing chemicals found in turmeric three times daily for 12 days can reduce skin irritation caused by lichen planus.
·         Prostate cancer. Research suggests that taking a formula containing broccoli powder, turmeric powder, pomegranate whole fruit powder, and green tea extract three times daily for 6 months prevents an increase in prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels in men with prostate cancer. PSA levels are measured to monitor how well prostate cancer treatment is working. However, it's not yet known if this formula reduces the risk of prostate cancer progression or recurrence.
·         Inflammation in the mouth and/or esophagus from radiation treatment. Early research suggests that swishing a turmeric solution in the mouth six times daily for 6 weeks reduces the risk of inflammation in the mouth and/or esophagus caused by radiation treatment in people with head and neck cancer.
·         Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Early research suggests that curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, might reduce some RA symptoms, including morning stiffness, walking time, and joint swelling. Other research shows that taking a turmeric product (BCM-95, Arjuna Natural Extracts, India) twice daily reduces RA symptoms more than conventional medication.
·         Recover from surgery. Early research suggests that taking curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, daily for up to one week after surgery can reduce pain, fatigue, and the need for pain medications.
·         An inflammatory disease called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Early research suggests that taking turmeric by mouth three times daily for 3 months can reduce blood pressure and improve kidney function in people with kidney inflammation (lupus nephritis) caused by systemic lupus erythematosus.
·         Tuberculosis. Early research suggests that taking a product containing turmeric and Tinospora cordifolia can reduce bacteria levels, improve wound healing, and reduce liver toxicity caused by antituberculosis therapy in people with tuberculosis who are receiving anti tuberculosis therapy.
"5 to 8 times stronger than vitamin E and stronger than vitamin C, this antioxidant breakthrough may help boost your immunity, maintain normal cholesterol levels, and put the brakes on aging," says Dr. Joseph Mercola about curcumin in turmeric.
Contraindications : Turmeric should not be used by people with gallstones or bile obstruction. Though turmeric is often used by pregnant women, it is important to consult with a doctor before doing so as turmeric can be a uterine stimulant.

Random Some POETRY November, 2017

Wayward nature of life
Baffles me to no end!
Is it really no honey without money?
When you do some things
Seemingly correct to you
You always think so correct..!
Everything looks corrupt to you?
If I wish to speak
Why you make me mute?
I am tired… talking to myself
So many things to do!
Only one life??
Lots of memorabilia in attic
Which gave you right to feel
You are always correct!
Reminds me something
A fable… “ God never lies”
But God never listens as well!!
But I know my dear!
It’s not easy changing your mind
However much you renovate an old mind

Past mistakes appear here and there!!

Dear Friends..

INCREDIBLE INDIA - Chow Mahalla Palace November, 2017

Grandeur of rulers, glory of its past, glimpse of their enigmatic way of living, are still alive in the form of palaces like Chow mahalla Palace, a place worth visiting when on a Hyderabad tour.
Built in the 18th century, almost 200 years ago, the Chow mahalla Palace is one of the popular sightseeing places in Hyderabad. The literal meaning of this place is “Four Palaces” with “Chow” means four in Urdu and “Mahalat” which is the plural of “Mahalel” meaning palaces. Chow mahalla palace is said to resemble Shah Palace of Tehran in Iran.
Chow mahalla Palace History

The construction of Chow mahalla Palace was mainly completed between 1857 to 1869 during the rule of fifth Nizam, Afzar-ud-Daulah, Asaf Jav V. However, its building is mostly credited to Nizam Salabat Jang in 1790. The Palace originally covered 45 acres which extended from the Laad Bazaar on the north to the Aspan Chowk Road on the south. Now, the total remained area of the palace is close to 12 acres.
                               The palace was restored by the Government and was opened to the public in the year of 2005. One can visit the palace throughout the week except on Friday and national holidays.

Chow mahalla Palace Architecture
The Chow mahalla Palace is consisted of two courtyards which are divided into the northern courtyard and the southern courtyard. The southern courtyard of the palace has four palaces which are namely Afzal MahalTahniyat MahalMahtab Mahal, and Aftab Mahal. The Aftab Mahal is a two storied building and is the biggest of all the four. The northern courtyard which has been open to public, houses Bara Imam, a long corridor with many rooms on the eastern side, which was once the administrative wing. Another captivating feature of this courtyard is the Shishe-Alat. This was used to receive guests and public figures.
The Chow mahalla Palace has Clock Tower, Council Hall and Roshan Bungalow inside it. The Roshan Bungalow has been named after Roshan Begum who was the mother of sixth Nizam. Khilwat Clock, which is famous for ticking since the construction of the palace, can be seen inside the Clock Tower. At the Council Hall, various manuscripts and rare books which were personal collections of the Nizam have been kept.
The heart of the palace is called as Khilwat Mubarak. This grand Durbar hall is undeniably the best part of the palace. Mughal domes, imposing arches and an intricate Persian work create a masterpiece. Inside the Durbar Hall, there is platform made up of marble. It is on this platform where the royal seat, Takht-e-Nishan was laid.
It is said that Chow mahalla Palace used to have around 7000 attendants on any given day. For its grandeur and charm, it has been often compared to the Enchanted Gardens of the Arabian Nights for its grandeur.

NGO : HEAL (Health and Education for All) November, 2017

IT has been 25 years since a simple act of kindness led to the formation of a charity called HEAL, or 'Health and Education for All', to give it its full name.

                   Dr Satya Prasad Koneru donated his family home to start a small orphanage all those years ago and the journey over the next quarter of a century has seen HEAL achieving great things for the benefit of some of the most vulnerable children in India.

                  Ever since registering as a charity in the UK, where Dr Prasad went on to a long and successful career as general practitioner, HEAL has been committed to providing shelter, support, education and healthcare to orphaned, abandoned and destitute children.
                          HEAL has been one of the real beauties of this charity is that it is still run entirely by volunteers, despite the obvious pressures to appoint paid staff and incur sizeable administration costs. Put simply, this means that all money raised by HEAL's valued donors and child sponsors goes directly for the benefit of the children in its care.

                    Alongside its expanding Poverty Trap support programme for poorly-funded schools in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states, projects include the long-established HEAL Children’s Village in Guntur, and an unparalleled educational campus called 'Paradise Village', currently in the final phase of construction at Thotapalli, which will provide a cradle-to-career home for 1,000 underprivileged children.

Features of this flagship project include:

HEAL/Elizabeth Panton Artificial Limb Centre, providing child amputees with long-term and holistic support;
Vocational Training Centre;
Institute for the Visually Challenged;
Full-time residential Secondary School and Primary School education;
Health Centre, Sports Centre &  Seniors Residences.

These days, HEAL has chapters not only in India and the UK, but also in Australia and USA, where celebrations and fundraising functions have begun to mark the HEAL Silver Jubilee.
                     And minds are already focused on the next 25 years and beyond, with the ambitious goal of helping up to 10,000 children escape the poverty trap by 2020.
                                 To find out more about HEAL, please visit the website at www.healcharity.org, where you can learn how to get involved in fundraising events such as Cycle India 2018, sponsor a child, make a donation, become a volunteer or even leave a legacy gift in your will.

CHILDREN’S DAY November, 2017

Jawaharlal Nehru (14th  November 1889 – 27th May 1964) was the
first Prime Minister of India and a central figure in Indian politics before
 and after independence. He emerged as the paramount leader of the
 Indian independence movement under the tutelage of Mahatma Gandhi
 and ruled India from its establishment as an independent nation in 1947
 until his death in 1964. He is considered to be the architect of the 
modern Indiannation-state: a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic
 republic.He was also known as Pandit Nehru due to his roots with the
 Kashmiri Pandit community while many Indian children knew him as 
Chacha Nehru  ("Uncle Nehru").

      In INDIA his birthday is celebrated as


Social Activities of Jawaharlal Nehru :

             Jawaharlal Nehru was one of the few Indian states men at that time who understood the need of proper intellectual development of the Indian populace. Nehru realized that the only way the Indian Republic can reestablish its presence in the world stage is through the intellectual power of its citizens.
·         Jawaharlal stressed on the teaching of science and its practical application fields.
·         “Special focus was put on development of technology which resulted in the demand of IIT graduates among corporate.”
·         The establishment of such learning centers also indirectly contributed to the emergence of the Indian Republic as a pharmaceutical major in the late 1980's.
·         Most of the economical (cheapest) medicines in the world are produced and sold in India. The capabilities of the Indian software industry have also amazed the world. 
·         The government schools provided free meals to its students. This scheme was the trump card of Jawaharlal Nehru. The food acts as a magnet for the impoverished hungry child. The food given in the primary education programs included milk in addition to pulses for a healthy meal.
·         The specter of malnutrition in the 1950's and 1960's India were fought in this way. Jawaharlal Nehru also established vocational schools for adults.
·         Adult education centers were created both in rural and urban areas. Higher technical schools were also established.

          The success of Jawaharlal Nehru's reforms is apparent throughout the modern Indian Republic. The booming economy of contemporary India underscores this fact. 

On this Children’s day let us know talents of some wonder kids,

Writing : Writing is a talent that all people can’t do it. A school student of 7 years from North India left surprised with her beautiful hand writing.

Fancy Dress : Some kids are very good looking in Fancy dress. Every year each and every school celebrate Children’s day and offer tribute to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru,

In Schools Every year Children’s day is celebrated in schools and give tribute to the
Legend Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
