Into The Clarity

Into The Clarity

A life audit exercise to help you steer through the everyday chaos and tangled threads of life.   Year after year, the time passes ….. We transform from kids to teenagers to adults to elders ….. Seasons come and go, months fly by as weeks become days and hours turn into moments …….. At the start of every year, we make resolutions, most of which never get achieved. we over promise and under deliver. We forget that in order to achieve something we need to act, rather we confine ourselves to our comfort zones and hinder ourselves to take the first step. Honestly, how many times did it ever happen that you sat back and looked into the yesteryears, just to check how far you have come, How many valuable and reliable relationships you made, how many you lost ? Were you able to achieve what you dreamt of ? Have you become better or worse ? What matters the most to you ? Are you satisfied with the way life turned out for you or otherwise ? Are you HAPPY ??? As a matter of fact, we as individuals try our best to keep ourselves acquainted with the latest happenings of the market, industry, technology, government, trends, even neighbours etc but we choose to ignore ourselves. Even a mere attempt at understanding ourselves and what goes inside us, doesn’t ever take place. So, standing at the edge of the year, let’s romance ourselves and take a peek into the time gone by to understand ourselves better before we take a plunge into the new year and start afresh....

How Alcohol which is otherwise considered notorious can help you be Healthy and Happy …   Booze, Juice, Hooch, Sura , Madira etc…….. all these are just a few references to what is popularly known as Alcohol. Since times immemorial, alcoholic beverages have existed and been used for both, pleasure and treatment of diseases. Even Ayurveda, the ancient science of medicine in the indian subcontinent, praises alcohol for its medicinal uses. However, it very clearly says that Moderation is the key when it comes to alcohol consumption and should be done keeping in view one’s age, medical conditions, seasons etc. In India, despite the growing numbers of alcohol takers, it is still considered a taboo and drinking at home, in front of the family still raises many eyebrows. Probably, thats why it’s more of an outdoor sport !!!! Well, without getting into the complicated Indian scenario of alcohol consumption and keeping in mind the approaching celebration period ( Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!! ), let’s have a look at how alcohol helps health positively.   1) It keeps the heart, Hearty and Healthy The primary reason for cardiovascular diseases and strokes is the accumulation of a layer of cholesterol inside the arteries that block the flow of blood to and from the heart.

Pollution – Beating us Black and Blue !!!

Pollution – Beating us Black and Blue !!!

Every average Indian office goer has a typical routine. The moment we get ready and out of our homes towards our places of work, each one of us have these experiences typically. We pass through that corner vacant plot that’s piled with the ever growing, incessant heaps of garbage (most of which is non recyclable), emanating stench that’s hard to bear. We move a little ahead and come across a municipal corporation worker sweeping the street and burning a big pile of accumulated garbage releasing the choking smoke and fumes. And once we are out on the main road, we get welcomed by the never ending traffic jams . A few minutes into the jam offer a nice cocktail of the best available poisonous gases that can kill !!!! And not to forget the once favourite lake everybody liked to go to, for a stroll on the banks that has turned now black and dirty. Pollution has been the buzz word doing rounds in the tabloids, primetime, conferences – national and international. Despite so much hue and cry on all available media actually and apparently, very little seems to be have been accomplished in controlling it. At least that is what the latest study from the Lancet, a reputed medical journal suggests. According to this study, in 2015, pollution led to 2.5 million premature deaths in India – the highest in the world, followed by China. If the statistics are to be believed, pollution caused more deaths as compared to smoking and thrice the number killed by AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. It killed more than the number killed...
