Sleep: Necessity of Hale and Hearty Life

sleep

It’s been taught to us from very early period of education that food, clothing and shelter are the basic need which satisfies one’s survival but attaining survival needs, need to work and rest simultaneously. Soft pillow, fluffy blanket, no lights and cool puff of air makes every person fall asleep; however we neglect the pleasure of sleeping just to achieve the basic needs. We forget that “sleeping is an investment in the energy that you need to be effective tomorrow”. Studding, cooking, managing, entrepreneurship, PR, advertising etc any work leading to dream life needs efforts every day, but leads to unhealthy life whereas sleeping for sufficient hours daily needs no effort and leads to healthy life with ones satisfactory survival. There’s a proverb “maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots” which fits exactly to the working of present generation, we search for relaxation by referring to doctors and medicines to fulfill the race of sitting at top of fast-pace of the present society but we never look to the basic therapy of relaxing despite of working hard daily.

Sleep is important to a number of brain functions. Recent findings suggest that sleep plays a safeguarding role that removes toxins in your brain that build up while you are awake. Research also shows that a continual lack of sleep, or getting poor quality sleep, increases the risk of disorder in one’s health including high blood pressure, stress, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, and obesity. Sleep works as food for brain, everyone is aware that food plays an important role in keeping one’s body developing and energetic with nutrients. Food for every living body has been described suitably for their proper functioning brain also needs food called sleep for its proper working. Skipping meal for oneself brings many harmful effects on health same get anticipated with skipping sleep.

There are some myths and there truth about sleeping that deviate ones judgment on the subject of sleeping which allows a person to skip or play with actual amount of sleep.

Myth 1: Getting just an hour less sleep per night won’t harm our daytime functioning.

Truth: Sleeping one hour less won’t allow you sleep during day time but affects your ability to think properly and response quickly as it should be, it also lead to reduction in cardiovascular health, energy balance, and ability to fight infections

Myth 2: Your body adjusts quickly to different sleeping schedules.

Truth: Body has a quality of adjusting to changes but adjusting to sleeping schedule won’t give you an idea about a big change but soon will bring laziness, decreases work performance, brings daytime drowsiness, and a sour mood.

Myth 3: Extra sleep at night can cure you of problems with excessive daytime fatigue.

True: Quantity of sleep plays an important role but also the quality of sleep is way more vital for solving the problem of fatigue. To cure the problem of daytime fatigue one must excessively pay attention rather than paying attention on extra time of sleep.

Myth 4: You can make up for lost sleep during the week by sleeping more on the weekends.

Truth: one long sleep may help you feel refreshed for a short while, the settlement of that extra sleep usually last only six hours or less after waking. Deficient sleep, lacking quality of sleep or disruptions to the sleep-wake cycle causes sleeps dept or sleep deprivation.

Myth 5: It’s no big deal to often have trouble falling asleep.

True: Insomniac is a serious sleeping disorder occurs due to trouble of falling asleep. Such trouble in falling asleep can bring disturbance in one’s working ability.

Sleep for every age group is defined differently. Sleep requirements vary from person to person, despite the notion that our sleep decrease with age; newborn to 3 months old requires 14-17 hours of sleep, 4-11 months old requires 12-15 hours of sleep, 1-2 year old requires 11-14 hours of sleep, 3-5 years old requires 10-13 hours of sleep, 6-13 years old requires 9-11 hours of sleep, 14-17 year old requires 8-10 hours of sleep, adults of age 18-64 years old requires 7-9 hours of sleep and older person aged 65 and more requires 7-8 hours of sleep. There is a big difference between the amount of sleep you can get by and the amount you need to function optimally can a bit be rescheduled but the frequent changes to this timings cause many problems.

Sleep is a complex and dynamic process that affects how you function. The cranky mood on next day is the result of sleep dept. Description of harmful effects to health due to lack of sleep is numerous and benefits of proper sleep is same. Conserving energy and decreasing blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and body temperature occurs when we take rest. Thus sleep is the best way to relax your body while keeping ones brain active.

Whatsaap welcoming business for creating new trends

“Acceptance of change and improvisation accordance to time brings happiness every time.”

Communication has come a long way from sending written letters to gossiping live through video calls which have made human conversation easier. Person sitting miles away can chat with another person in just one click. Saying of George Cantor “great innovation only happens when people aren’t afraid to do things differently” fits to the innovation of telephones by Alexaender Grahambell. Differently thinking of Grahambell to the problem of communication led to the introduction of telephones which also inspired others to bring changes in communication technology to make it easy.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it fails but that’s what is faced during improvisation. Improvisation from heavy, huge and long wired telephones to small, light weighted and wireless mobile phones worked positively. In today’s world everything is just one click away with such improvised techniques. Many social media platforms have surrounded us for communicating such as whatsaap, instagram, facebook, wechat etc.

Out of several social media platforms present, whatsaap is growing immensely with 1.3 billion monthly active users and 60 billion messages delivered daily on board; WhatsApp wants to make its platform more users friendly. It started as an alternative to SMS but today it supports sending and receiving a variety of media: text, photos, videos, documents, locations as well as one can pursue video calls and voice calls. With frequent updates from past 2years whatsaap has also covered the field of online business. The company has finally released its Business app which can help small businesses to engage with a large number of users more easily.

WhatsApp claims, 80% of small businesses in India and Brazil are already using their existing app to connect with their customers and expand their business. Whatsaap business just makes smart business sense to engage with your customers on the app they’re already familiar with. The company has tweaked the interface and added a bunch of new features which will allow small businesses to furnish more details about themselves and respond faster to their customers. It provides businesses to create a business profile with more detailed information about what they do and sell along with their address, website and contact number. Customers can reach out to them through messages or calls. With some smart messaging tools such as quick replies, which are a bunch of custom messages prepared by them in advance and can be used to provide quick answer to frequently asked questions makes whatsaap business different from normal whatsaap. Presently payments of orders is being done through net banking of UPI apps but whatssap is reportedly working on bringing the option to make UPI payment to its users and is having talks with various Indian banks and NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India). When it rolls out, customers will be able to pay merchants from within WhatsApp and the money will be directly sent to their bank account.

This new feature has not only helped small business grow but also have brought new enthusiasm in housewife’s to work and earn online. Simply becoming a reseller of any existing business has helped and is helping many Indian women to earn while working with households. It also has encouraged teenagers to earn while studding without losing their attendance. Whatsaap also add a sense of improvisation in other social media to create a platform to earn.

Enjoying ease of technology brings two aspects positive as well as negative automatically with it. Business through whatsaap has many positive layers to it but by default there occurs some negative layers too. Marketers fool customers in tangible business environment then its way easier for them to fool in intangible world. Basic problem faced are lack of referring to quality of product, theft by not delivering the product even after payment, delay in delivery or getting notifications every single minute can irritates anyone. Every problem comes with a defined solution though. Whatsaap have designed its app as such that you can block any person or group from irritating you, its upon customer to get the instance of quality by referring the cost and also one can directly approach to police for complaining the fraud related to money. Negative aspects of whatsaap business have not led it hinder its growth as there exists some true venders who work positively and are trust worthy in every case.

अनमोल

एक दर्द से हम अभी उभरे नही
दूसरा फिर से सामने आगया,
एक एक करके अनमोल लोगों का साथ हमसे छूट गया।
पहले श्री देवी तो अब स्टीफन हॉकिंग का यू अचानक चले जाना,
बॉलीवुड और विज्ञान जगत को अपने अपने हीरो को नम आखो से अलविदा करना पड़ा।

मेरा पहला प्यार।

लड़कपन कि वो पहली- पहली याद है,

मेरा वो पहला पहला प्यार है।
मेरी पहली तो नही पर हाॅ एक ताजी सी याद है,
वो कुछ और नही मेरे पहले प्यार कि शुरूआत है।

उस वक्त मैहज 14-15 साल कि छोटी बच्ची ही थी मै,
प्यार क्या है वो बस फिल्मो मे ही देखा करती थी मै ,
पर फिर भी मूझे ना जाने कैसे तूझसे इक्करार होने लगा था।

हालाकी ये तेरी -मेरी उन अन्नगीन्त मुलाकातो जैसी ही एक मुलाकात थी,
पर उस दिन शायद तेरी जरूरत मूझे कुछ जादा ही थी।

तब से तूझे मैने मेरी जिन्दगी में थोडा जादा ही मिल लिया है,
क्योकी तेरी महक मैं मेरी हर परेशानी को दूर करने का राज़ छुवा रखा है।

शायद उस वक़्त लोगो के पास टाइम काम था,
इसीलिए मैंने तुझे अपने लिए चुन लिया था।

याद है मुझे मैं कैसे तुझसे चुप चुप कर मिला करती थी,
कही और नही तुझे अपने रूम में ही छुवा कर रखा करती थी।
आज तो इस कदर बेशर्म बन चुकी हूं,
की तुझे सारे आम ही अपने लबो से मिला लिया करती हूं।

किसी को मेरी कहानी मैं कह दिलचसबी हुआ करती थी,
तू ही तो है वो जिसे मैं अपने हर राज़ बोलै करती थी।

ठंड हो या गर्मी का मूसम तुझे पकड़ने के बाद सुखोन मिलता है,
आज भी तुझे पाकर मन खुशी से झूम उठता है।

अब तो मम्मी भी बहुत बार बोल दिया करती है,
किसी और को भी देखा कर अपनाया कर,
अरे पगली
अपने दांतों का तो धयान दिया कर ,
चॉकलेट ज़्यादा न खाया कर।

पर क्या करूँ तू है ही इतनी मिट्टी और प्यारी ,
की तुझसे दूर रहने का मन ही नही मानता है,
तुझे बिना पाए मुझे अब चैन नही आता है।
इसीलिए तुझे अब खरीदने की जगह ,
बनाने मे ज़्यादा मज़ा आता है।

Happiness without laughter and sadness without tears…

Confusion and frustration of single line which strikes my mind all the time and was pinching my nevers with horified vibes

the line is…

Why I didn’t cried when someone important was leaving my small life..??

After a time I think I have finally hit my grith or you can say my thinking heights.
One unpleasent night…I ended up with answer that fits very right
so here is something I have stopped with..

just starting from my toys to my tecnological needs…
sheding my tears with loudest laughter all the tym…
from the day I started the sense of feeling ..I always felt a manly hand on my sholders to protect me even If have ever did a mischive..
I know him from last 19 years so well that i always trusted him blindly for all my dreams..
We were dating each other from long back I remeber the date 20.4.1998
Yes its such a long journey …I had shared with him who is someone important i belive
In contarary of dating each other.. I was never jealous or pissed off.. even knowing the fact he loved 3 other girls excluding me…
that bonding between me n him was the key of our love journey
never I ever asked him whom he love the most nor he ever asked me to prove my love for him..
from last 7 years right from 2011 he was getting ill but was never weak
that is why I never thought of such a disaster in this sweetest love live..
such thougths of loosing him so soon may have arrived if doctors would have defined..
doctors always said he is all fine but not his working time..
yes because he used to work hours n hours n hours to give us a pleasure full life…
his workimg hours was moring 4 to 12 at midnight..
You all only say… was it right..??
no!  I know but no one could justify this in front of him…
years passed… my someone important was just beside..
2016… I left my hometown for further studies
and opted the same subject in which he was specialised…
as soon as reaching my new place I got engaged with some not same but similar monkeys and butterfiles …
I think those 11 months was in so hurry that they didn’t allowed me to spend time with him…
no but this isn’t true…
those fasinating days became my new feeds and unknowingly pages of that lovers dairy was left blank behind…
15 days later I was standing on a white polished hospital’s floor
And he was lying on the bed with 2 to 3 machines attached to him
producing the irritating beeping sound….
he was 30 years ahead of my age but the charm of his face even today stops at my old days..
but that his face was looking like a jet leg..
still that smile… yes that smile was the thing I could ever had.
for some time we were just staring to each other… for rest I got scared of seeing those scarce left by the therapy cuts n bruises..
my father had beared it alone all the time..
as we started talking…doctor cum uncle walked inside with some paper in his side..
see it was difficult for some one read that paper who was hoping for his recovery..
I walked out of the room over that unpleasant coridoor
I sat on the chair arranged in a row..
with a thougth preoccupied that how he was fighting with those painful theropy needels
how he was doing….was he cring or was he just letting it go???

I could never imagine…
but that images i remember… my first memories with him from hell
It was my fault why i had left mine love story incomplete just to start some new stories.
Inspite of seeing all activities I was not thinking that the air we both are  breathing could lead to end of the story..
 yes I do cry
but this time defination of crying was something else…

the suddeen separation and no last touch
of my father left me with happiness without laughter and sadness without tears..
may be I saw him being so strong….made me tough that 19 year girl is holding her self with all her left strength..
May be his teachings are working today that never cry until then you don’t fight..
never feel sad until you dont survive the worst..
May be he is still beside and holding my hand that just I cant feel thats why my tears don’t fall…
Yes that someone imp is my dad….

NEHA ASAWA

Best thing about teachings is it can  work  even when teacher stops working angel….But only if you want it to work.

And you never left the love diary incomplete…You just took a break with his permission and trust me it was his greatest pleasure to see you flying in new colors with new butterflies…Infact I am happy that he was lucky enough to witness you like that…He was proud of every moment you had spent there…He used to enjoy seeing your pictures and videos and say me after watching neha,It feels like I am in my college days…He was extremely happy to afford you something,he never got an opportunity of ….He was living his college life by seeing you there….So that clearly means your story never had any breaks…And if you can trust me more…This story has now become eternal and will see no more breaks in future.

As you said he is still holding you and will hold you forever

​Guru is aspiration, Guru is inspiration: Guru Purnima

India being a multi religious country follows many different rules, beliefs, culture, scriptures etc. For example Hindu’s goes to temple, have beliefs in lord Shiv, lord Krishna etc, and follow the rules of holy books like Ramanaya, Mahabharata etc. similarly Sikh’s goes to Gurudwara, have beliefs in Gurunanak Sahab, Gurugovid Singh etc, and follows the rules of holy book Gurugranth , Muslim’s goes to mosques and follows the rules of holy book Quran, Christian’s goes to church, have beliefs in Jesus and follows the rules of Bible. But besides of being many differences there is one common belief in all realigns is to follow the perching of Guru or Teacher. From ancient times guru is given a special and important place in anyone’s life it is because guru is light, guru is wisdom who makes the complicated life wonderful with his or her teachings. There is a saying in Hindi which describes the importance of guru directly “Guru Govind do khade kake lagu paye , Guru balihari apki Govind diyo bataye”. 

To mark tribute and be thankful towards teachers India recognizes 5th September as teachers day. The day is commemorated as the birthday of Late Dr. S. Radhakrishnan who was a great teacher who has contributed a lot towards education and he was the 2nd president of independent India. Words of Dr. Radhakrishnan “instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my privilege if 5th September is observed as Teacher’s day” brought the concept of teachers day celebration since 1962 when some of his students came up to celebrate his birthday. The day to honor teachers for their contribution arose not before mid 20th century. But the question arises that is before 20th century no day was meant for honoring teachers or guru? No it’s not so. 

India from early times has always witnessed great spiritual guru as well as academic guru and they have always been admired and honored. Our ancestors like us have not failed to mark a day specially meant for gurus. Guru Purnima is age old fest day which comes in month of Ashadha(June or July) to pay tribute to gurus. Traditionally the day was celebrated by Buddhists in respect to Lord Buddha who gave his first lecture at Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh on this day, in mythologies the day is recoganised as the occasion when Lord Shiva became the first guru as he began to spread yoga to Saptarishis but the authentic basis of reorganization of the day is in honor of the great Saint Ved Vyasa who is the author of Mahabharata and wrote 4 Vedas. It is said that saint was not only born on this day but also have started writing the Brahma Sutras. For that reason the day is also said as Vyasa Purnima and the day was accepted as Guru Shishiya tradition.      

Historical evidences and believes are of no use till it is being applied in the busy scenario. There are people who keep these evidences alive through some celebrations but unfortunately there are many who laugh at such celebration with the saying “why to devote one day when we can devote it daily”. Simple answer to their argument is that we need such days to bring out some time for them from our busy life or the celebration is required to express our gratitude without fail. Gratitude is a quality embedded in us that we often forget to express and may be therefore the special occasions are made so that we can express our feeling entirely to the one. 

Neha Asawa. 

Happy guru purnima neha.

A good read for today✌

And I loved the last para which highlights the relevance of showing gratitude.

​Awaited and famous festival of Orissa (Puri) : Rath Yatra

Rath yatra or Chariot festival is the most awaited festival among the innumerable festivals illustrious around the globe. The festival is also identified through these names such as Festival of Chariot, Car Festival, Dashavatar Yatra, Gundicha Jatra, Navadina Yatra and Ghosa Jatra. These auspicious festival Rath Yatra is associated with the lord Jagannath (avatar of lord Vishnu) which is celebrated every year in Ashad Shukla Dwitiya (2nd day of the bright fortnight of the month of Ashad) this year the date is set to be commence on 25th of June and the fest is celebrated for about 9 days therefore the end day ceremony falls to be on 3rd of July. 

The festival defines the formal procedure of visiting maternal home in every summer holidays as it is believed that lord Jagannath with is elder brother Balabhadra and his sister Subhadra annually visits their maternal aunt’s home and their return falls after 9 days. The procession starts from Jagannath Temple to Gundicha Temple or Masi Maa Temple near Balagandi Chaka, Puri both temples are 3km away but happiness of devotees clubbed with prayers and drums take few hours to reach. The procession carries the wooden idols of the three siblings i.e. lord Jagannath his elder brother Balabhadra and his sister Subhadra. The three idols are placed to their respective chariots which are accompanied with chants (mantra or bhajan), conches (shankha) and drums along with millions of devotees.

The main highlights of the procession are the three chariots. The preparation of these chariots starts from the day of Akshay Trithiya. All three chariots are named differently and have different number of wheels along with difference in their heights. Nadighosa Lord Jagannath’s chariot is 45.6feet in height and has 18 wheels attached, Taladhvaja Lord Balabhadra’s chariote is 45feet in height and has 16 wheels attached and Devadalana Goddess Subahdra’s chariot is 44.6feet in height and has 14 wheels attached to it. The three huge chariots are not pulled by horses nor by any other animal but are dragged by the hands of devotees itself. The chariots are connected with the long ropes which are 50meter long in length. It is believed that pulling the rope is nourishing the good karma and brings subtraction to their bad deeds. Procession is has Lord Balabhadra’s chariot at the fist followed by Goddess Subhadra’s chariot and at last Lord Jagannath’s chariot is placed. 

Before the commencement of Ratha Yatra there are series of celebrations or rituals performed. In the very first ritual the three idols are taken for the bathing ceremony on a full moon day, the bathing festival is known as Snana Purnima. 109 buckets of water are drawn from temples well are poured over the idols. After the Snana fest the idols are kept away from public view for about fifteen days as it is believed that idols are affected with fever. During this period the Pujaries of the temples are also said to be ill and recommended to eat fruits and diet foods only. This ritual of not letting public to view the Lords and Goddess idols is known as Anasara. After these fifteen days idols are been seen Navayauvana Vesha (renewed vesha) on the new moon day in the month of Ashadha. And finally on the second new moon day comes the occasion of Rath Yatra. On the day of procession the famous and main ritual is performed which is known as Chhera Pahara. This ritual is performed by the royal successor of Orissa. In this ritual the idols are brought from the temple by the king and placed on the chariot before placing the idols it is the king who sweeps the chariot with broom that has golden handle to it. He late has to decorate the chariot with fresh flowers. The ground where the chariot will move through is also being cleaned by him. This ritual directly points out to the saying that all humans either rich or poor are equal in the eyes of lord.

As Chhattisgarh being a neighboring state of Orissa also witness the enthusiasm and happiness of this positive festival. Chhattisgarh also enjoys the Rath Yatra with same essence and rituals as the population has loads of Oriya people living here. Even the Governor and the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh also take part in the celebration.
