Laughter as a medicine and a meditation

It was a get together of a club in Namakkal, called as happiness club.
They had decided to have a debate on the best effect of laughter was for the body or the mind.

The teams had straight away agreed the goodness was there and there was no doubt on that, but the difference was only the results, was it limited to the body or the presence of the mind itself.

 The readers digest has a separate page for the jokes titled as " laughter the best medicine", with no doubts left for the medical profession to argue at all.

The words medicine and meditation have a common origin, and it was no better place to have it than at this togetherness , where the whole auditorium was up with peals of laughter.

Sunny oil bath leads to strong teeth and bones

It was another of those lazy saturday mornings.
A container of cold pressed sesame oil was got, a packet full of grounded arapu leaves,( i have yet to find the English name for it) change clothes were collected, and of course that neem twig and off i was to have an oil bath.

The morning sun was at the a slant and  i was into oiling myself ,lazyly chewing the twig and letting my system have itself a chemical reaction of the oil,the sun light and what ever else that was there.

Some folks use shikakai powder, other shampoos, i prefer the powder of a local plant which has an oil cleaning effect we call it arapu, some folks also use the bark, it also offers a shampoo like solution.
a half an hour of a good sun bath , and buckets of spring water from the well, adds to the freshness of a good oil bath on a saturday morning.

No breaking fast today till lunch time, goody lunch awaits me.


Many of us are on to calcium supplements, the calcium that is made from our own system is the only calcium that can be absorbed by the body to be used with no ill effects.

The calcium that the body prepares from the food that we eat is best and natural organic food of sprouted pulses and green leafy vegetable sources are safe.

The calcium supplements are on the chopping block , with reseach leading them to cause ailments from many disorders.( courageous researchers will bring them to book)

(The vitamin D that is derived from the oily sun bath , helps in the body to absorb the calcium in our food.)

Across the Atlantic- a voice from the land of incas

I have always made it a rule that i would share things that are original and from my heart,and make exceptions when a life can be saved or a heart can be touched, and this doctor sounds a worthy example.

The topic is on vaccines, but the  words are thought provoking and stirs the heart.


Who is the real "" ?

In this world of so much search and  checking , one must at least get to know who or what are we searching for, that we already have, or do not have.

Like many searches, the direction and angle is always different and far fetched, so we can start from close by, and that is our place, than distant horizons of rich lands and poor people.

Writing exercises-to bring on a good sign

During our school days, we had those 4 liners to practise our handwriting,like i said it is a misnomer, it should have been finger-writing.

The writer was given a set of exercises,which we dutifully followed and still do at times of nostalgic school thoughts of " those were the days".

Things seem to have changed for the better or for the worse, with lots of sharing with e- mails and less of documentation and paper work, yet the answer sheet is one thing that keeps the writing work steady, at least for the future times of  a political high post when u have to sign a lot of bills.

For now the people with  posts are regular with their signing in of so many new laws that they don't have to do writing exercises as such , their signatures for passing this bill and then the next, a new one is already on the table.

If only they had reading exercises too, many of those bills would not have been passed, a shame we do not have similar reading exercises , for better results ,of a sharper mind and a courageous heart.
