Flu treatment from history

Once upon a time In 1919, flu killed 40 million people. 
A doctor visited the many farmers who had the attack to see if he could help them combat the flu. 
Many of the farmers & their family had contracted the flu and many died.
However, the doctor came upon one farmer whose family was healthy and nobody in the house contracted the flu.
The doctor asked the farmer what he was doing that was different from the others. 
The farmer’s wife replied that she put an unpeeled onion in a dish and placed them in all the rooms in their house.
The doctor thought that could have been the cure so he asked for one of those onions.
As he placed it under the microscope, he found the flu virus in the onion. The onions obviously absorbed all the bacteria and thereby kept the family healthy.
Now, I sent this story to a friend in Oregon who regularly contributes material to me on health issues. She replied with this most interesting experience about onions:
She said ‘ Thanks for the reminder. I don’t know about the farmer’s story but, I do know that I myself got pneumonia and became very ill. From my previous knowledge about onions, I  cut both ends off an onion put it into an empty jar, and place the jar next to myself over night. 
By the morning, I began to feel better while the onion became black.’
Lots of times when we have stomach problems we don’t know what to blame. Maybe the onions that we ate earlier are to blame.
*Onions ABSORB BACTERIA* and that is the reason why they are so good at preventing us from getting *colds & flu* 
And for that very reason we should NOT eat an onion that has been sitting for a time after it has *been cut open.*
*Left over onions are poisonous*
When food poisoning is reported, the first thing the officials look for is whether the ‘victim’  ate *ONIONS* and where those onions came from. Most probably the *ONIONS,* are the cause.
*Onions are huge magnets* for bacteria, especially uncooked ones.
*Never ever keep a portion of sliced onion over a period of time and thereafter use it to prepare food. It’s not even safe if you put it in a zip-lock bag and placed it in your refrigerator. It is still poisonous* 
Also, do not give onions to dogs. Their stomachs cannot metabolize onions.
*Please remember it is dangerous to cut an onion and try to save it to cook with the next day, it becomes highly poisonous for even a single night – as it creates toxic bacteria which causes adverse stomach infections because of excess bile secretions and even food poisoning.*
Let as many as possible people know this.


The story to stay young

Once a Elderly man gave an advise to stay young. 

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them’
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s. 
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5.. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity. 
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER :Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but  by the moments that take our breath away.
And if you don’t send this to at least 8 people – who cares? 
But do share this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each day!! 
Worry about nothing, pray about everything!



So beautiful. Cannot resist not to share. 



At the prodding of my friends I am writing this story.  My name is Mildred Honor. I am a former elementary school Music Teacher from Des Moines, Iowa.
I have always supplemented my income by Teaching Piano Lessons…Something I have done for over 30 years. During those years, I found that Children have many levels of musical ability, and even though I have never had the prodigy, I have taught some very talented students. However, I have also had my share of what I call ‘Musically Challenged Pupils.
One such Pupil being Robby. Robby was 11 years old when his Mother (a Single Mom) dropped him off for his first Piano Lesson.
I prefer that Students (especially Boys) begin at  an earlier age, which I explained to Robby.  But Robby said that it had always been his Mother’s Dream to hear him play the Piano, so I took him as a Student.
At the end of each weekly Lesson he would always say ‘My Mom’s going to hear me Play someday.’  But to me, it seemed hopeless, he just did not have any Inborn Ability.I only knew his Mother from a distance as she dropped Robby off or waited in her aged Car to pick him up.  She always waved and smiled, but never dropped in;
Then one day Robby stopped coming for his Lessons.  I thought about calling him, but Assumed that because of his lack of Ability he had decided to pursue something else. I was also glad that he had stopped coming. He was a Bad Advertisement for my Teaching!
Several Weeks later I mailed a flyer recital to the Students’ homes. To my surprise, Robby (who had received a flyer) asked if he could be in the Recital. I told him that the Recital was for current Pupils and that because he had dropped out, he really did not Qualify.
He told me that his Mother had been Sick and Unable to take him to his piano lessons, but that he had been practicing.  ‘Please Miss Honor, I’ve just got to Play,’ he insisted. I don’t know what led me to allow him to play in the Recital – perhaps it was his insistence or maybe something inside of me saying that it would be all right;
The night of the Recital came and the high school gymnasium was packed with Parents, Relatives and Friends. I put Robby last in the Program, just before I was to come up and thank all the Students and Play a finishing piece. I thought that any damage he might do would come at the end of the Program and I could always salvage his poor performance through my ‘Curtain Closer’.
Well, the Recital went off without a Hitch, the Students had been Practicing and it Showed. Then Robby came up on the stage. His Clothes were Wrinkled and his Hair looked as though he had run an egg beater through it. ‘Why wasn’t he dressed up like the other Students?’ I thought. ‘Why didn’t his Mother at least make him Comb his Hair for this Special Night?’
Robby pulled out the Piano bench, and I was Surprised when he announced that he had chosen to play Mozart’s Concerto No.21 in C Major.  I was not prepared for what I heard next.  His fingers were light on the keys, they even danced nimbly on the Ivories.  He went from Pianissimo to Fortissimo, from Allegro to Virtuoso; his Suspended Chords that Mozart demands were Magnificent!  Never had I heard Mozart played so well by anyone his age.
After six and a half minutes, he ended in a Grand Crescendo, and everyone was on their feet in Wild Applause!!! Overcome and in Tears, I ran up on stage and put my arms around Robby in Joy; 
‘I have never heard you Play like that Robby, how did you do it?’  Through the Microphone Robby explained: ‘Well, Miss Honor, Remember I told you that my Mom was sick?  Well, she actually had Cancer and Passed Away this Morning. And well… she was  Born Deaf, so tonight was the first time she had ever heard me Play, and I wanted to make it Special.,


There wasn’t a Dry Eye in the house that evening.  As People from Social Services led Robby from the stage to be placed in to Foster Care, I noticed that even their Eyes were red and Puffy.  I thought to myself then how much Richer my Life had been for taking Robby as my Pupil.
No, I have never had a Prodigy, but that night I became a Prodigy… of Robby. He was the Teacher and I was the Pupil, for he had taught me the meaning of Perseverance and Love and Believing in Yourself, and may be even taking a chance on someone and you didn’t know why.
Robby was Killed years later in the Senseless Bombing of the Alfred P. Murray Federal Building in Oklahoma City in April, 1995.

*Tirukkural  by Tiruvalluvar (a Tamil  poet/writer) was written more than 5,000 yrs ago. It’s one of the ancient science on Human Behaviour, which has not changed in spite of modern education  & technology!*
1. *If your child lies to you often, it is because you over-react too harshly to their inappropriate behaviour.*
2. *If your child is not taught to confide in you about their mistakes, you’ve lost them.* 
3. *If your child had poor self-esteem, it is because you advice them more than you encourage them.* 
4. *If your child does not stand up for themselves, it is because from a young age you have disciplined them regularly in public.*
5. *If your child takes things that do not belong to them, it is because when you buy them things, you don’t let them chose what they want.*
6. *If your child is cowardly, it is because you help them too quickly.* 
7. *If your child does not respect other people’s feelings, it is because instead of speaking to your child, you order & command them.* 


8. *If your child is too quick to anger, it is because you give too much attention to misbehaviour & you give little attention to good behaviour.* 
9. *If your child is excessively jealous, it is because you only congratulate them when they successfully complete something & not when they improve at something even if they don’t successfully complete it*
10. *If your child intentionally disturbs you, it is because you are not physically affectionate enough.*
11. *If your child is openly defiant, it is because you openly threaten to do something but don’t follow through.*
12. *If your child is secretive, it is because they don’t trust that you won’t blow things out of proportion.*
13. *If your child talks back to you, it is because they watch you do it to others & think its normal behaviour.*
14. *If your child doesn’t listen to you but listens to others, it is because you are too quick to jump to conclusions* 
15. *If your child rebels it is because they know you care more about what others think than what is right*
*Pls fwd this to Parents who care to read this!*


*Positive Parenting!*

Life in years

Good read:
● At 20 years “foreign country” and “hometown” is the same. (No matter where you are, you can always adapt) 
● At 30 years, “night time” and “daytime” is the same. (A few days of no sleep, does not matter) 
● At 40 years, “highly educated” and  “lowly educated” is the same. (Lowly educated persons, may even earn more money) 
● At 50 years, “beauty” and “ugly” is the same. (No matter how pretty you are, at this age, wrinkles, dark spots, etc. start to appear.) 
● At 60 years, “high official” and “low official” are the same. (After retirement, their status are the same)
● At 70 years, “big house” and “small house” is the same. (Joints degeneration,  cannot walk, only require a little space .)
● At 80 years, “have money” and “no money” is the same. (Even when you spend money, you won’t be able to spend much) 
● At 90 years old, being “man” and “woman” is the same. 

● At 100 years, “Sleeping” and “waking up” is the same. (After you wake up, you still don’t know what to do) 

Take life easy, there are no mysteries to be solved. 

In the long run, we’ll all be the same 🙏🙏

Recently 3 incidents which have shaken us and make us to rethink where we are moving. 
1. Man, who was owner of 12000 crores Empire, Raymond is now living in rented room on hand to mouth basis because of his Son has showed him Exit door of house. 
2. Billionaire Woman  died in her posh Flat in Mumbai , her body became skelton in one year and Her millionaire Son was not even bothered to know about her in last 1 year. 
3. An IAS officer topper of 2012 batch committed suicide because he was unable to cope up stress with his family issues. 
All these incidents tell us that Money and power / reputation are not the only things which make us to  feel complete. 
(Raymond says a complete man !!!)
Unless and until we are not happy with, whatever have in our life it is incomplete.

Let us show gratitude for what we are blessed with while aiming at higher goals in life.

The Runner

I read this amazing true story of Lata Bhagwan Khare. Lets read and be inspired by her great willpower. 
Lata Bhagwan Khare, a 65 year old resident of an small village in Buldhana district in Maharashtra, lived with her three daughters and husband. She and her husband worked very hard throughout their lives and married off their daughters. All the savings which they gathered over the years were spent on these marriages.
Post daughter’s marriages, she and her husband started working as daily wage workers in the nearby farms, they used to make enough to survive.
One day suddenly, her husband felt uneasy and was diagnosed with some serious infection. Lataji was left baffled, with no money in hand and the creepy situation, she couldn’t understand what to do. She took him to the nearby government hospital, doctors recommended her to take him to the terminal hospital in Baramati as few tests had to be conducted. Lataji was in tears, she felt pity on her misery. She couldn’t see her husband dying in her arms. She felt helpless and sorrowful.
Courageously, she begged her neighbours, relatives and every possible person she could and gathered a small amount and left for Baramati for the further tests of her husband.
Doctor moved her husband in the check-up zone, she discreetly sat outside the room with the teary eyes, praying god to save the only wisdom in her life. Doctor came out of the check-up ward, her eyes lit, eagerly waiting to hear the well-being of her love. But Fate had some other story written for them, Doctor advised further costly tests and medications, which were going to cost them a bounty. Lataji’s world collapsed with her nowhere to go, no money to treat her husband. Her world was shattered, her heart ached, overwhelmed by emotions, she cried with helplessness.
They came out of the hospital heavy-heartedly, stopped by nearby samosawala, had two samosas on piece of newspaper, her eyes stopped on the bold Marathi headline on the newspaper, her eyes lit, heart skipped. The headline was about the ‘Baramati Marathon and it’s prize money’. She was excited and all sorts of thoughts flooded her mind.
Next day, Baramati Marathon was about to commence, everyone geared up in their sports shoes, cozy shorts and tracks, sweat absorbing tees. And there she comes, the 67 year old Lata Bhagwan Khare, wearing torn saree (lugda), bare footed, tears in her eyes. She argued with the organizers, they weren’t ready to let her participate in the marathon, she pleaded, she begged, she convinced them to approve her participation.
Marathon started, she hitched her saree just above her ankles, she ran like a wizard, like a 16 year old teen, she didn’t think of anything else, she could just see her husband’s agony and the winning amount in front of her eyes ahead. She didn’t care about the hard hitting rocks and pebbles on her way, her feet bled, but she ran and ran. She won the marathon and was awarded the prize amount. It meant a life to her, she was going to see her husband live. Crowd cheered her, streets of Baramati clapped for her. People were flabbergasted, they saluted her and applauded her.
She collected the winning amount and made sure her husband received the proper medication. This is love, this is devotion. She didn’t blink an eye, she never thought about how she is going to win the marathon, how is she going to run barefooted, how’ll she survive. She only ran with one motive, to save her husband.
I salute Lata Bhagwan Khare, for her courage and fortitude. In the world full of excuses, you just proved to be an icon.

Thank you for everything

There was a bird who lived in the desert; very sick, no feathers, nothing to eat and drink, no shelter to live and kept on cursing his life day and night. 
One day, an Angel was crossing from that desert, bird stopped the Angel and inquired ” where are you going?” Angel replied ” I am going to meet God”. 
So bird asked angel ‘ please ask God when my suffering will  come to an end?’ Angel said ” sure, I will” and bid good bye to bird. Angel reached God’s place and shared the message of bird to Him.
 Angel told Him how pathetic the condition of bird is and inquired when the suffering of the bird will end. God replied “For the next seven life times, the bird has to suffer like this, no happiness till then”.
Angel said when bird hears this, he will get disheartened. Could You suggest any solution for this?
God replied: Tell him to recite this mantra “Thank you God for everything”. Angel met the bird again and delivered the message of God to the bird. 
After seven days, the Angel passed the same path again and saw that bird was so happy; feathers had grown on his body, a small plant grew up in the desert area, a small pond of water was also there, the bird was singing and dancing cheerfully. Angel was astonished as to how this happened, ‘God said for seven life times, there is no happiness for the bird’… with this question in mind, He went to visit God.
 Angel asked his query then God replied: “Yes, it was written there will be no happiness for the bird for seven life times but because the bird was reciting the mantra “Thank you God for everything”  in every situation.
 When bird fell down on the hot sand, it said “thank you God for everything”, when it could not fly it said “thank you God for everything”, so whatever the situation, the bird kept on repeating “Thank you God for everything” and therefore the seven life times’ karma got dissolved in seven days”.
When I heard this story, it landed me in a different energy zone, i felt a tremendous shift in my way of feeling, thinking, accepting and viewing life. 
I adopted this mantra in my life. Whatever the situation I faced, I started reciting this mantra ‘ THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING’. It helped me to shift my view from what i did not have to what i have in my life. 
Similarly,  i started using this mantra in my relationship, finance, love life, social life, business, with friends, maids, colleagues and everything with which I can relate. I shared this story with my spouse and children too which brought a great shift in their behaviour.
 This simple mantra really had a deep impact in my life, i started feeling how blessed I am, how happy I am, how good life is….
The purpose of sharing this message is to make all of us aware how powerful is the power of gratitude is. It can reshape our life.
 A simple word, a simple thought, which teaches us to be grateful for everything we have in our life has power to dissolve the karmic baggage which we are carrying from so many life times. Lets recite this mantra continuously to experience the shift in our life. 
I end this article with the beautiful lines:
Be grateful, and see the change in your attitude.

Be humble,and you will never stumble.
Deep love and gratitude to you for reading it.
 Thank you😊
