Eat home cooked foods

Eating better-Sometimes we forget that little things matter more than the big things. Why I am saying is that when I was living in Trichy, I ate healthy home made foods. We did not go to hotels too many times as always I ate food made by my mother during my school days and college days. But once we shifted to chennai, my younger sister got a job in a well known KPO company then a software company, we started to celebrate this by going to hotels near our home many a times.While my mother ate very little in hotel my father and my sister ate more including myself. Due to this habit I have to go to the hospital because I had breathing troubles.

Then a chest x-ray and an ECG was undertaken by the doctors. The result came normal but my blood tests and ultrasound scan were not normal. I had less haemoglobin and have to take iron tablets and vitamin tablets for that. I also had slight polycystic ovarian disease which is shortly known as PCOD. It can be found in many married and unmarried couples but this is not serious the doctor told. If I don’t reduce my weight in a year’s time, I will have diabetes, thyroid disease and infertility. The amount I have to pay for eating junk foods.

I was 55 kg in Trichy and when we started living in chennai eating hotel foods more often my weight raised at an alarming rate. My weight is currently 62 kg. The doctor advised me to exercise a lot as I have to deal with PCOD too along with breathing problems which has turned out to be anxiety disorder. My breathing problem is due to my weight gain also. I am finding it very hard to reduce my weight like I used to. So I am sharing my life experiences to let you all warn about the risk of not eating better food that harms your heart.

Staying active

With only home cooked meals and after saying no to all fast foods, now I feel I can decrease my weight if I put my heart and mind into the cause. My office is very far so I always do a brisk walk to the share auto stop and then a bus stop.But as I have PCOD it is very hard to reduce the weight. Last time I checked it was sixty two before that it was sixty three.

So what I am trying to say to all is that don’t put on so much weight. You will get heart disease than other people who are slim or thin. Take care of your heart by maintaining a balanced weight. Most of the disease in the world is because of not taking care of the heart. Make the right choice of cooking using the oil that does not harm your heart. Heart failure, heart attack, and many other heart related problems occur because of bad oil. Always stay active if you eat too much junk foods you may regret it later on in your life.

What I am doing to keep my heart healthy and happy?

In the morning, we start the day by drinking fruit juice or carrot juice.
In the afternoon, along with variety rice home cooked vegetables for side dish.
During night time, either dosa or rice.

Happiness can be achieved when we are healthy and active. Nothing can replace joy and happiness if we eat home cooked foods made in oil such as Saffolalife.

For a sound, healthy heart

A sound heart and mind is needed for a healthy lifestyle. For that to happen we have to eat lots of vegetables and fruits. We should not neglect greeny vegetables especially. That is why our elders are more healthy and stronger than us. I have seen my grandfather since childhood. He walks both in the morning sharp at 5 o’ clock am and in the evening 5 o’clock pm. He walks briskly even at the age of eighty six. Everyone in my family say that my grandmother looks more healthier than my mother I agree with this statement. My mother has blood pressure and my father has cholesterol. My uncles and aunts too have some problems such as diabetes, etc. Why my grandparents had no health problems?I do not have to answer this question as you all know well. While I am lazy at many times they are staying very active. How it is possible because they don’t eat junk foods like most of us.

In my point of view what I(you)should do to keep my(your) heart well and happy

I will make a comparison between how our ancestors lived and how we are living in this fast moving world. We are born yesterday and the average life span of humans today is sixty I suppose. But in Christianity in the bible it says people have lived more than thousand years. I do no know whether it is true or not. There is no scientific proof for that. My guess is that it may be true indeed because my uncle’s mother is ninety seven years old and how she was able to live? Will she cross hundred years, hell yes. How does she manages to be healthy without a sign of any disease? It is simply amazing too.

I am not sure whether I will be able to live that many longer. But in order to save myself against early death, I have to eat healthy food. Without the help of saffolalife how can I do that?

Always eat better –Our heart must be healthy otherwise we will get many heart problems other than heart attacks. All problems regarding health occurs only because of not taking the right food that strengthens the heart.

Saffola oil helps to manage the heart well by decreasing the chance of cholesterol, heart attacks, and many other heart problems. Irregular heart beats will get stabilized once we start eating foods that are cooked in best oil like Saffolalife.

We cannot neglect our heart condition otherwise we will not live that longer like our grandparents or like our ancestors. That is why cooking food in Saffola oil is a must in every household. Let us better be safe than sorry.

I conclude by saying that our heart’s health is not a child’s play. It should be well taken care of. So a single mistake in our food lifestyle can make matters worse. I hope this helps you understand what I am trying to say.

Inside the diary of a female journalist

She cried for help but nobody answered. It was so dark outside. The evil men tore off her clothes and took turns to rape her. These demons struck her mouth with her own clothes. She was suffocating. She could die any moment.They also didn’t mind her profuse bleeding due to her vaginal tear.

By “she” it could be any female. She may be a girl child, a teenager or a grownup woman. She could be anybody. She could be your sister, your sister-in-law, your cousin, your classmate, your best friend, your daughter. She could be anybody.

The newspaper read 80 men raped a single woman repeatedly by holding her captive for many days. The woman last the count of men by whom she was raped. Another heart wrenching news within that day. A five year old child was raped by her own grandfather.More ugly news of rape filled the newspapers. Everybody in India became used to the word “Rape”.

India became the first largest country that is not safe for a girl child to be born. This couldn’t stop all women to protest. Indian women got used to the word “rape” and began protesting along with the decent men.Does that help? The answer is a “no”.

It is sad of course the state of a female child has become a question mark. Mothers were apprehensive of sending their female child to schools and colleges even it is not co-ed education for they were aware “ A girl is a girl”. The root cause for rape are the films so the elders say. They argue that semi-nude and nude, bold stunts by actresses and the violence shown in films forms the basis for rape, murder and other major crimes in India. How true it is?

Where men were growing violent day by day, the women were growing silent feeling helpless. There were very less fast track courts in India. Once the case is being filed and the rapists has been caught, it took months to put the culprits behind bars. Many upper class rapists were let free because of narrow minded lawyers who would not stop until they have won because they are paid hefty fees for that. They safeguard the dignity of their women and girl children but not the others.

If a woman can walk boldly on night, it is a great miracle. That day all females in India can celebrate Independence day. Will that just be a dream and nothing more?Only time will tell.

Nilima stopped writing for she finished writing all her thoughts about the state of female in India. She opened a blank notebook to write more but what stopped her was the tears that flowed through her eyes incessantly. She felt ashamed to be born in India. She hated her parents for giving birth to her. She hated all men even her own father, uncles, cousins, and every single men she came in contact with. She hated the education system which didn’t help even a tidbit to teach the children about how to differentiate right from wrong. But behind her smooth facade, she hid this aspect of her. She didn’t know how to help her sisters subjected to violence and rape. So she joined an NGO and began helping the raped girls and women to stand up on their own leg and be an example to all the other women and even men. She managed to continue writing on her notebook, cowards rape and before she could end the sentence her ink pen’s nib broke.
