iodised salt --- fact and fiction

From 17th May2006, a law has been passed which bans sale of un-iodised salt in India. Iodised salt is available for an average of Rs 10/- whereas un-iodised salt was available for @ Re 1/-. Where are ten rupees and where is one rupee?

Iodine is essential for memory power and as an essential ingredient in food. However iodine also evaporates above temperature of say 35 degrees Celsius. So due to hot climate in India, as soon as we open the salt pack, most of the iodine content gets evaporated. We add salt in food - do we add it while it is being cooked or after it is cooked?

If we add it during cooking, the temperature is definitely more than 45 degrees which means there is no iodine content in food transferred from salt! Iodine is available in green leafy vegetables like spinach and 6 such other natural sources.

Salt alone need not be forced upon as iodine source. So cold states like Himachal,
Arunanchal, J&K can have that as a law to have iodized salt. But why the whole of India?
Just so that MNCs can get 15000 crores of rupees from selling iodized salt in India?
Whom are we favoring here? Indian folks or MNCs?

Cattle in villages are fed broken rice & cattle drink for which people add salt, and typically they buy bags of salt (say 50kg )+ they also need large quantity of salt in coastal area to feed the coconut trees; so this issue was talked about in South-Kanara with regards to cow-feed and coconut farmers.
They can not afford to buy iodized salt.

Gurudev said, this is like a repetition of history. Mahatma Gandhiji had started Satyagraha for a restriction passed on by British rule on salt manufacture and sale in that era. It so happened that when Gurudev was told about this, He was returning from South Africa!
In British rule, 30% of income had to be spent on salt so that Britishers could make money out of erstwhile Indian pockets.
Many people in India do not even know about this law so far. We need to spread awareness and do the right thing to indicate our displeasure.

There are cigaretttes and liquor sold very openly in India, with just one message 'consumption is injurious to health' that makes it good enough for sale. Government does not do anything for such
substances, and they are behind salt!

In villages like Malegaon etc in India, even remote villages than these, we can easily get soap 'Dove' - MNCs have penetrated to the roots of India. Look at any other country -you will get what that country manufactures, anywhere in that country first and then you may have to look for other country items. Is this the case in our India?

We should all start using homegrown products wherever possible.

Else we are going to end up in making our country poorer and poorer by such salt laws in future

Brain damaging habits

1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood
sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the
brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in
mental power.

 3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

 4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and
nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain

 5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling
polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing
about a decrease in  brain efficiency.

 6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will
accelerate the death of brain cells.

 7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon
dioxide  and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain
damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in
effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

 9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain
stimulation thoughts  may cause brain shrinkage.

 10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain
 The main causes of liver damage are:

1.         Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
2.         Not urinating in the morning.

3.        Too much eating.

4.        Skipping breakfast.

5.        Consuming too much medication.

6.        Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring,
and artificial sweetener.
7.        Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce
cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking
oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired,
except if the body is very fit.
8.         Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden
of  liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried
veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

 We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just
have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining
good eating habits and time condition are very important for our
bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to

Evening at 9 - 11pm : is the time for eliminating unnecessary/toxic
chemicals (detoxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes).
This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music.
If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state  such
as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework,
this will have a negative impact on health.

 Evening at 11pm - 1am : is the detoxification process in the liver,
and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

 Early morning 1 - 3am : detoxification process in the gall, also
ideally done in a deep sleep state.
Early morning 3 - 5am : detoxification in the lungs. Therefore there
will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time.
Since the detoxification process had reached the respiratory tract,
there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with
toxin removal process.
 Morning 5 - 7am : detoxification in the colon, you should empty your
Morning 7 - 9am : absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you
should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier,
before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very
beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip
breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to
eat breakfast late until 9 - 10am rather than no meal at all.

Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of
removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4:00 am
is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a
good sleep and don't sleep late.


when you decide something.......

An old man lived alone in Minnesota. He wanted to spade his potato  Garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped him,  was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his  Situation: Dear Son, I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant  My potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden, because
 Your mother always loved planting time. I'm just getting too old to be  Digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be  Over. I know you would dig the plot for me, if you weren't in prison.
 Shortly, the old man received this telegram:  For Heaven's sake, Dad, don?t dig up the Garden!! That's where I buried  The GUNS!! At 4a.m the next morning, a dozen police officers
 showed up and dug up  The entire garden without finding any guns. Confused, the old man wrote  Another note to his son telling him what happened, and asked him what  To do next.
 His son's reply was: "Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad. It's the  Best I could do for you from here."


Will you grant me a boon

'How long will you be pouring over that
Will you come here right away and make your
darling daughter eat her food?'

I tossed the paper away and rushed to the scene. 
My only daughter Sindu looked frightened.

Tears were welling up in her eyes.  In front of
her was a bowl filled to its brim with Curd Rice.

Sindu is a nice child, quite intelligent for her
She has just turned eight.  She particularly
detested Curd Rice.  My mother and my wife are orthodox, and believe firmly in the 'cooling effects' of Curd Rice!

I cleared my throat, and picked up the bowl. 
"Sindu,darling, why don't you take a few mouthful of this Curd Rice?  Just for Dad's sake, dear.  And, if you don't, your Mom will shout at me'
I could sense my wife's scowl behind my back. 
Sindu softened a bit, and wiped her tears with the back of her hands.  'OK, Dad. I will eat - not just a few mouthfuls, but the whole lot of this.  But, you should...'  Sindu hesitated.

'Dad, if I eat this entire Curd Rice, will you
give me whatever I ask for?'
'Oh sure, darling'.

'Promise'.  I covered the pink soft hand extended by my daughter with mine, and clinched the deal.
'Ask Mom also to give a similar promise', my
daughter insisted.  My wife slapped her hand on Sindu's,muttering 'Promise', without any emotion.

Now I became a bit anxious.  'Sindumma, you
shouldn't insist on getting a computer or any such
expensive items.  Dad does not have that kind of money right now.  OK?'
'No, Dad.  I do not want anything expensive'.
Slowly and painfully, she finished eating the whole quantity.
I was silently angry with my wife and my mother
for forcing my child eat something that she detested.
After the ordeal was through, Sindu came to me
with her eyes wide with expectation.  All our
attention was on her.  'Dad, I want to have my head shaved off, this Sunday!' was her demand!
'Atrocious!' shouted my wife, 'a girl child
having her head shaved off? Impossible!'.
'Never in our family!' my mother rasped.  'She
has been watching too much of television.  Our
culture is getting totally spoiled with these TV programs!'
'Sindumma, why don't you ask for something else? 
We will be sad seeing you with a clean-shaven head.'
'No, Dad.  I do not want anything else', Sindu
said with finality.
'Please, Sindu, why don't you try to understand
our feelings?' I tried to plead with her.

'Dad, you saw how difficult it was for me to eat
that Curd Rice'.  Sindu was in tears.  'And you
promised to grant me whatever I ask for.  Now, you are going back on your words.  Was it not you who told me the story of King Harishchandra, and its moral that we should honour our promises no matter what?'
It was time for me to call the shots.  'Our
promise must be kept.'
'Are you out your mind?' chorused my mother and wife.
'No. If we go back on our promises, she will
never learn to honour her own. Sindu, your wish will be fulfilled.'

With her head clean-shaven, Sindu had a
round-face, and her eyes looked big & beautiful.
On Monday morning, I dropped her at her school. 
It was a sight to watch my hairless Sindu walking
towards her classroom.  She turned around and waved.
I waved back with a smile.  Just then, a boy
alighted from a car, and shouted, 'Sinduja, please wait for me!'
What struck me was the hairless head of that boy.
'May be, that is the in-stuff', I thought.

'Sir, your daughter Sinduja is great indeed!' 
Without introducing herself, a lady got out of the car, and continued, 'That boy who is walking along with your daughter is my son Harish.  He is suffering from .. ..leukaemia.'
She paused to muffle her sobs.  'Harish could not
attend the school for the whole of the last
month.  He lost all his hair due to the side effects of the chemotherapy.  He refused to come back to school fearing the unintentional but cruel teasing of the schoolmates.  Sinduja visited him last week, and promised him that she will take care of the teasing issue.
But, I never imagined she would sacrifice her
lovely hair for the sake of my son!  Sir, you and your wife are blessed to have such a noble soul as your daughter.'

I stood transfixed.  And then, I wept.  'My
little Angel, will you grant me a boon?  Should there be another birth for me, will you be my mother, and teach me what Love is?'


A friend drove me to lunch downtown and – miracle of
miracles – found an empty parking space right in front
of the restaurant. But just as he turned on his
blinker and started to back in, another car zipped
into the space, its driver yelling, "Whoever’s faster

I was furious, but my friend just shrugged and
began looking for another space.

A fool shows his annoyance at once,
but a prudent man overlooks an insult.
– Proverbs 12:16

Man is free at the moment he wishes to be.
– Voltaire

"Didn't that bother you?" I asked my friend once we
were seated in the restaurant. His reply amazed me. "I
never let anyone provoke me for things I can't
change,” he said quietly.

His answer was food for
thought that was much more nourishing than the lunch
we went on to share. It became clear to me that when I
Iet myself fall into provocation trap, I give up
control over my emotions, which eventually hurts no
one but me.

Has someone provoked you recently?

Stay out of the trap!

MY Room

One stormy night many years ago, an elderly man and his wife entered the lobby of a small hotel in Philadelphia. Trying to get out of the rain, the couple approached the front desk hoping to get some shelter for the night.
"Could you possibly give us a room here?" the husband asked. The clerk, a friendly man with a winning smile, looked at the couple and explained that there were three conventions in town. "All of our rooms are taken," the clerk said. "But I can't send a nice couple like you out into the rain at one o'clock in the morning. Would you perhaps be willing to sleep in my hotel room? It's not exactly a suite, but it will be good enough to make you folks comfortable for the night."
When the couple declined, the young man pressed on. "Don't worry about me; I'll make out just fine," the clerk told them. So the couple agreed. As he paid his bill the next morning, the elderly man said to the clerk, "You are the kind of manager who should be the boss of the best hotel in the United States. Maybe someday I'll build one for you." The clerk looked at them and smiled. The three of them had a good laugh. As they drove away, the elderly couple agreed that the helpful clerk was indeed exceptional, as finding people who are both friendly and helpful isn't easy.
Two years passed. The clerk had almost forgotten the incident when he received a letter from the old man. It recalled that stormy night and enclosed a round-trip ticket to New York, asking the young man to pay them a visit.
The old man met him in New York, and led him to the corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street. He then pointed to a great new building there, a palace of reddish stone, with turrets and watchtowers thrusting up to the sky. "That," said the older man, "is the hotel I have just built for you to manage."
"You must be joking," the young man said.
"I can assure you I am not," said the older man, a sly smile playing around his mouth. The older man's name was William Waldorf Astor, and the magnificent structure was the original Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. The young clerk who became its first manager was George C. Boldt. This young clerk never foresaw the turn of events that would lead him to become the manager of one of the world's most glamorous hotels. All this happened because of the service he offered by going out of his way and going beyond the call of duty.

Dancing With God

When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing "dance" at the end of
the word. I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.  The movement doesn't
flow with the music, and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead, both bodies begin
to flow with the music.  One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the
back or by pressing lightly in one direction or another. It's as if two
become one body, moving beautifully. The dance takes surrender,
willingness, and attentiveness from one person and gentle guidance and
>skill from the other.  My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.

When I saw "G," I thought of God, followed by "u" and "i."  "God," "u" and
"i" dance." God, you, and I dance. As I lowered my head, I became willing
to trust that I would get guidance about my life.  Once again, I became
willing to let God lead.

 I Hope You Dance!

Give Without Seeking Recompense

Buddha had just finished his sermon when the king of
that province approached him desiring to donate land
and huge wealth. Buddha remained on his seat and
received that with one hand. The king took a seat
close to Buddha. Then came the wealthiest landlord of
that province and he too donated a large amount of
money. Buddha didn’t move from his place and took it
with one hand. The rich person also sat next to the

Then emerged a poor old woman from the crowd of large
devotees and bowed before Buddha offering a handful of
grain tied up in a small bundle. Much to the chagrin
of both the king and the rich man, Buddha got up from
his seat and took that with both hands. When the king
and the rich landlord asked the reason for this
differential treatment, Buddha explained how they had
given a very small part of their holdings and their
donations were imbued with vanity and expectations.
“Therefore I have taken them with one hand without
moving from my seat. But, that poor woman donated
everything she had and she moved back in to the crowd.
She had no desire to be known or acknowledged. So I
got up from my seat and accepted her donation with
both hands.” Give not anything away as yours, but as
that which is given to you by the divine power, for
dispensing to the needy. He who comes to know this
truth is a seer because he rises above ego, and the
arrogance associated with the donor.

True charity is the desire to be useful to others
without thought of recompense. Charity given from
earned money without any intention to earn glory is
worthy of reckoning, irrespective of its magnitude. If
the donor as well as the receiver is particular about
this aspect then our religious and charitable
institutions will continue to command respect.

four wives

FOUR WIVES............

 > Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives.

> He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her

 > to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.


 > He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to

 > neighboring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave

 > him for another.


 > He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant and was always kind,

 > considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem,

 > he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the

 > difficult times.


 > The King's 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great

 > contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdo! m. However, he did

 > not love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took

 > notice of her!!


 > One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought

 > of his luxurious life and wondered, "I now have four wives with me,

 > but when I die, I'll be all alone."


 > Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you

 > with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that

 > I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No way!", replied

 > the 4th wife, and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut

 > like a sharp knife right into his heart.


 > The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all my life.

 > Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No!",

 > replied the 3rd wife. "Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to

 > remarry!" His heart sank and turned cold.


 > He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for help and

 > you've always bee! n there for me. When I die, will you follow me and

 > keep me company?" "I'm sorry, I can't help you out this t ime!",

 > replied the 2nd wife. " At the very most, I can only walk with you to

 > your grave." Her answer struck him like a bolt of lightning, and the

 > King was devastated.


 > Then a voice called out: "I'll go with you. I'll follow you no matter

 > where you go." The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She

 > was very skinny and frail and not pretty at all, as a matter of fact

 > she looked very homely from neglect. Greatly grieved, the King said,

 > "I should have taken

 > much better care of you when I had the chance!"



 > In truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives:


 > Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we ! lavish

 > in making it look good, it will leave us when we die.


 > Our 3rd wife is our possessions, statu! s and wealth. When we die, it

 > will all go to others.


 > Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have

 > been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the

 > grave.


 > And our 1st wife is our Soul. Often neglected in pursuit of wealth,

 > power and pleasures of the world. Ho wever, our Soul is the only thing

 > that will follow us wherever we go.


 > Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of

 > us that will follow us to the throne of God and continue with us

 > throughout Eternity.

 > Thought for the day:


 > Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the

 > perfect position to pray.
