Once in a Village...

ORE ORU OORILE : Once in a village

All the children of the "Kadha Club" assembled together. "Pattu grandma" what is spicy today? asked the kids.

Pattu grandma was very serious. Please ! Please why are you mum sweet grandma! Are we making a mess? asked the children.

"Childrens" No jokes! said pattu grandma with a stern voice.No more complaints from your parents about your disinterest in studies.As there is story time, youth is the time for educating, reforming, tuning your life with the morals and thicks of life.

Basically, children love pattu grandma for her tonal modulations and depth in her presentations.

Though they like to stop studies for the sale of play, they are extremely punctual in pattu's session.

Pattu grandma raised her voice. Hey kids ! Be quite. I'm going to start the stroy.

Come on! Let us all sing together.

Form a circle and clap your hands according to the rhythm of this piece.

Everybody repeat, said pattu grandma " Odhamal Orunalum Iruka Vandam"(Learn each and every day) Children were very happy.

Chintu, a 8 year old was so dull.

He is a visually challenged boy with partial sight.Pattu grandma always appreciates his interest in studies.

Pattu asked "Why Chintu? Are you having a bad tooth ache?

No Pattu grandma, chintu cried. I lost my Tamil book couple of days back.

My teacher will punish me.My mom is not having money to buy. I do not know what to do.

Pattu grandma consoled him, "Chintu pappu", I will buy for you do not cry- she patted him.

Mintu asked "where is the story" Pattu grandma started.

This is a beautiful story based on the Proverb "Odhamal Orunalum" ... said by Aouvaiyaar a famous tamil poet in ancient Tamil history.

In the village of Ar...... there was a boy called Nandu who was in junior class.

Nandu was a sweet boy who helped his mother in domestic works, looked after cows and goats so beautifully but never wanted to study.

Nandu's mother was worried as he did not go to school regularly.He joined with lazy boys and started playing cards and marbles.

Nandu's friend chandu was a good boy who helped him in studies though Nandu made fun of him as he was a visually challenged boy.

Nandu's mom liked Chandu and helped him out with his problems.

Nandu never liked Chandu as he was cleverer than him.

It was quaterly examination time.Nandu did not know anything and tried to copy from Chandu which the teacher noticed and started to punish him.

Chandu said,"Miss please listen to me.Nandu could not prepare well because he was attending to me when I was down with Viral fever.

I instigated him to copy.

"Please punish me".

Nandu was shocked and reacted immediately.

He said Teacher please forgive me, I'm ashamed of myself for not taking up studies so seriously which made me handicapped mentally! I will definitely do well in my next exams as my chandu desired.

They hugged each other.

Nandu said, Chandu I realised that nothing can be a good companion except books and a true friend which is a platform for success.

Pattu grandma ended the stroy with a touching modulations and said! "Kids" remember no harm in skipping food, sleep or comforts, Never postpone your studies for the next day.It will pollute your mind with laziness.

Grandma added "Kids" here is your sundal(pea nut) time.Delicious peanut sundal. Hey Hey all the kids were in a merry mood.They started singing songs.

Bye grandma - Take care They dispersed with eagerness for the next day's session.

Water Therapy

Best medicine ever H2O…..drink liberally. You can cure and stay away from most of the diseases

Drink six (6) glasses of water (1.5 liters) everyday and avoid medicine, tablets, injections, diagnosis, doctor fees, etc. You can never believe before practicing.

List of Diseases That Can Be Cured By Water Therapy

Blood Pressure / Hypertension
Anemia (Blood Shortage)
Rheumatism (Pain in joints / muscles)
General Paralysis
Pulmonary Tuberculosis
Kidney Stones
Hyper Acidity
Uterus Cancer
Rectal Piodapse
Eye Diseases
Ophthalmic Hemorrhage & Opthalmia (Reddisheye)
Irregular Menstruation
Breast Cancer
Urogenital Diseases

Therapy Procedure
Early morning, after you get up from bed, (without even brushing your teeth) drink 1.5 liters of water i.e., 5 to 6 glasses. Let us all know that ancient Indians termed this therapy as "Usha Paana Chikitsa" . You may wash your face thereafter.
Here it is very essential to note that nothing else, neither drinks nor solid food of any sort should be taken within 1 hour before and after drinking these 1.5 liters of water. It is also to be strictly observed that no alcoholic drinks should be taken the previous night. If required, boiled and filtered water may be used for this purpose. It is difficult to drink 1.5 liters of water at one time, but you will get used to it gradually. Initially, while practicing you may drink four glasses first and to balance two glasses after a gap of two minutes. You may find the necessity to urinate 2 to 3 times within an hour, but it will become normal after quite some time.

By Research and Experience the following diseases are observed to be cured with this therapy within the indicated days as below:

Constipatio - 1 day
Acidity - 2 days
Diabetes - 7 days
Cancer - 4 weeks
Pulmonary TB - 3 months
BP & Hypertension - 4 weeks

It is advised that persons suffering from Arthritis or Rheumatism should practice this therapy thrice a day, i.e. morning, midday and night, 1 hour before meals for one week; and twice a day subsequently until the disease disappears.

How Does Pure Water Act?
Consuming ordinary drinking water by the right method purifies human body. It renders the colon more effective by forming new fresh blood, known in medical terms as " Haematopaises". That the mucous folds of the colon and intestines are activated by this method is an undisputed fact, just as the theory that the mucous fold produces new fresh blood.

If the colon is cleansed then the nutrients of the food taken several times a day will be absorbed and by the action of the mucous folds they are turned into fresh blood. The blood is all-important in curing ailments and restoring health and for this water should be consumed in a regular pattern.

If you are having difficulty in passing motion everyday morning try this, drink few glasses of water and wait for few mins. It really works, I have personally tried it...

Life is Short, Just go for it

Please forward this message to your friends, relatives and neighbors. It is a great service to the cause of humanity.

Never Quit

*When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.*

*Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow*

*Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.*

All about MIGRAINE

What is Migrane?
Migraine is a severe headache that's often accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea and vomiting. The precise cause in unclear, however it is thought to be related to a fall in the levels of Serotonin- a chemical neurotransmitter in the Brain.

There are two types:
  • Classical - the headache is preceded by an aura when symptoms such as seeing flashing lights, temporary visual loss, speech problems or numbness of the face or arms may occur

  • Common - no aura precedes the headache
What happens?
Both types of migraine often start with changes in mood and feelings of hunger or food cravings.

Migraine attacks last from four to 72 hours and are usually felt on one side of the head. During this time sufferers usually need to lie down in a quiet and darkened room since the throbbing headache is often made worse by movement, noise and light.

Why does it happen?
Changes in the size of blood vessels and the levels of neurotransmitter substances (chemical messengers) in the brain are thought to be responsible for migraines. In particular, a fall in the levels of the brain chemical serotonin is believed to be responsible for the dilatation (widening) of the blood vessels that causes the throbbing headache.

Many factors can trigger migraines including:
  • tiredness

  • stress

  • dehydration

  • missed or delayed meals

  • certain food and drinks - cheese, chocolate, coffee, tea, alcohol
Can one stop it?
Migraine can't be cured but it can be kept under control. Maintaining a diary – each time the symptoms occur, helps to identify triggers that can then be avoided.
Some men find that taking medicines early in the attack reduces the severity and duration of the attack.

When Should one see a Doctor?
A doctor should be consulted, if:
  • Medication (painkillers) purchased from the pharmacist is not helping or attacks are coming more frequently

  • There's a change from usual migraine symptoms
  • Avoid any identified triggers

  • Take painkillers as suggested by the doctor

  • Painkillers combined with anti-sickness medication

  • Medication that restores the normal levels of serotonin

  • Acupuncture, Osteopathy, Yoga, Relaxation or Homeopathy may help
