Thanks to Homeopathy, and Dr. Deepak K Tibrewal, my boy, Lohaan, got an award for highest attendance in Class

It was the annual day function at Electronics City Kidzee and Juzzkids school, where both our children are studying. Once all the programs where over, They started giving awards. It was a surprise to us when we heard our 2 year 8 months old boy, Lohaan’s name announced for an award. And the award was for having maximum attendance in the class. Now I am not sure if we are doing justice to him sending him to school all the day. But this made me think for a while.  Most of the children of this age are not able to attend the classes. And this was the case of his sister also. We had to take lots of leaves when Claire was of his age, because of the cough and cold. It is usual in Bangalore that kids get fever, cough and cold when the climate changes. And also because of the pollen in the air. Our kids where no different.
Each time you go to a doctor first thing he would start with an antibiotic. And after some time the dosage is increased for proper effect. Children where getting week over a period of time and we were getting worried. It is also not a good mood that you would get in office when your boss see you taking leaves often for some or the other reason. Claire had some problem in her eyes for which we had to spend a weeks time in a hospital. Pediatric surgeon had a doubt that it was some complex problem. She was given antibiotic over iv for all 8 days. It was the time when my wife, Ahilaa, was expecting our second child in another 8 days. We had no choice but to leave the hospital. We then met more than 60 doctors in Bangalore for this. One would investigate and give reference of another doctor. Then it went for six months. I would not blame any of those doctors, but am thankful to each one of them as they were all trying to help us.  By now we had also started all the same antibiotics for Lohaan who was now 6 months old. For him, there was a problem that his temperature increases and he had twice lost his consciousness.
This is when the magic happened. We got introduced to Dr. Deepak K Tibrewal Homeopathic doctor in Jayanagar. Dr. Deepak K Tibrewal is a unique practitioner of Homeopathy in Bangalore - India, he has Allopathic qualification MBBS from MAHE and Homeopathic MF(HOM) from The Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital, London. He provides fully personalized modern Homeopathic treatment on the principles of classical Homoeopathy.
He has got a website : . This will help you know more about him.
From then for the last two years we have been taking his medicines for both our children. With God’s grace and Dr. Deepak K Tibrewal Homeopathic medicine we never had to take antibiotics for both our children from then. It is only those sweet medicines that we need to take. The only thing is that when you are taking homeopathic medicines, there are some rules that we need to follow. If we could follow it then the medicine would do its best. Rules are not so difficult. We need to take medicines as per the prescription. For half an hour, should not eat anything before or after taking medicines, should not take medicines immediately after brushing your teeth. And should have a clean mouth at the time of taking medicines. That is all. 
He found out that Claire needs Sodium supplement, and Lohaan he gave a magical medicine HKP. AB etc.  I do not know what all those are. But now we survive with those. Now we know that if there is a chance for fever, AB. If there is cough and cold, HKP.  And for each person the medicine is different according to the body type of the person. So there would be a half an hour consultation which is required to know what kind of person you are and body type you have. 
Now our children can play in rain and go to school next day. In the above picture you can see Claire and Lohaan with other children playing in rain as they have Dr Deepak’s medicine kept inside their home.
I thank him for helping us. Knowing about my children, many of my friends who went there told me later that they were all happy that they met him. They were also thankful to me for introducing him. It is not just them some of our relatives also started his consultation which includes my father in law who could completely remove the usage of his asthma medicine puffs.

Is Vladimir Putin The Richest Politician? Russia?

 A recent study came up and said that Vladimir Putin is the richest politician in the world. It is said that "Putin's personal fortune" on Google, and you'll find estimates of between $40 billion and $70 billion. He is not just rich, He is one of the healthiest politicians too. Do not mess with him.

It could be also possible that he has shown all his wealth. There are many politicians around us who we have heard having so much money either in their names or they have someone else who keeps their money.
We only notice those politicians who are in limelight, why don’t we look at some others too. Some one who is in politics for more than 70 years.

Russia? May be I do not know but we also have to check for other countries. India could be one of it.

There is no cholesterol in vegetable oils

I happened to see the video of a class Dr. N Gopalakrishnan a scientist and Hon. Director of Indian Institute of Scientific Heritage, having M.Sc. (Pharm. Chem); M.Sc. (Appl. Chem); M.A. (Soc.); Ph.D (Bio); D.Lit
I thought it is very important for most of us to know this, so hear it is what he said : Remember there is no cholesterol in any vegetable oil. None of the vegetable products including palm oil does not have cholesterol. Cholesterol is there only in animal based products. It is there in butter, Ghee, egg, Meat, fish etc. Our body needs 950 mil cholesterol each day. Cholesterol is not a poisonous material. 950 mg cholesterol is required for our body, which our body produces. If one egg is consumed 60 mg of cholesterol is made in the body. Similarly, when chicken, mutton, beef, etc are consumed it increases with respect to it.
Specialty of cholesterol is that, our body knows how to make it but does not know how to decompose it. Remember, body know to produce cholesterol, body does not decompose cholesterol. Alternately it uses these cholesterol and convert it to lipo-protein to make skin and membrane, and that is the only thing body does.
In Denmark 1945-46, when heart of the war prisoners was opened the It was found that huge amount of cholesterol was there in the fat inside the heart. From that day, it made to think that that cholesterol is a reason for heart attack. Then there was so many changes later. You would have heard about HDL and LDL which is there inside this. I believe that you would have heard about it. Could be a misunderstanding, no worries.
Low density Lipo protein, LDL. 0.94 gram per cc. Very High density Lipo protein, VHDL 1.2 gram per cc. In between these you have High density Lipo protein HDL.
LDL is produced when cholesterol and fatty acids which has got 18 carbon join together and makes ester, this joins with protein and then goes through phosphate. Then LDL and HDL is produced.
In this if Saturated Fat is what has come, then density of lipo protein will be less. Melting point will be 40, 41, 42 degree for different fats.
What is the body temperature? 37.3 degree. So melting point of fat is 40-42 and body temperature is 37.3. What will be the state of the fat in the blood? Solid/ globule will be the state.
This will go somewhere and create a block. For this reason, gingili oil is the best oil for body. The whole of it is omega 3 poly unsaturated fatty acid and because it's melting point is less than 9 degree.
For that reason, 40 grams of fat with unsaturated fatty acid is required for our body each day.
We doctors frighten saying that you need to avoid fat, but yes should avoid chips sort of things. Reason being oil is heated up to 167 to 170 degree before frying. When this is mixed with water and salt, peroxides and hydro-peroxides. It is sure that this will make cancer. That is why, the thing which can have more probability of having peroxides and hydro-peroxides, have you heard of fried oil? What do you call the oil which is once used for frying? You use the same oil for frying for five days. Keep it for two days. Take two grams of it and feed a chicken. Within five minutes chicken will be dead. Reason peroxides. Peroxides and hydro-peroxides are what that would be there in this. So without knowing unsaturated and saturated fatty acid, we frighten patients many times.
Butter has got so much of cholesterol. Butter is not a vegetarian product. So do ghee has got so much of cholesterol. Because ghee is made out of butter.
The reason why I talk with this confidence is that my PhD is in lipid Chemistry. My doctorate is in Lipd Bio Chemistry. I worked inside and outside India in the same field.
I am telling you one more thing. 60% of the diseases can be cured only with hydro therapy. What is hydro therapy? Get up in the morning and drink 4 glass of water. That's it. Nothing more. The 6.25 liter of blood which is there inside our body is uncommonly polluted. Blood in the body is like stagnant water. Have you found any way to purify it? You could clean your outside body using different soaps. What to do inside? How will you clean inside? Drink enough water that is the solution.

Get ready for Christmas with a bottle of wine

This is been some years I have been making wine at home and share it with some of my friends. It is most of the years in month of Nov I start preparing so that I have it ready by Christmas. I thought it would be a nice idea to share the recipe in Mirage.
It is very simple only thing that you need to have is patience. You should be a little extra careful when you make wine, because wrong bacteria can make it vinegar. This has happened with me once. I had 25 litres of vine vinegar which I did not know what to do J
I will tell you how to make wine from one kilogram of grapes. You can make wine with any fruit, the process remain the same.
  1. Black grapes 1 Kg
  2. Sugar 1 Kg
  3. Wheat : 50 g
  4. Yeast: 10 g
  5. Water: 2.5 litre
  1. A ceramic / plastic pot
  2. Wooden long handle spoon
  3. A filter
Boil 2.5 litres of water and keep it closed to cool
Clean the whole grain wheat and keep it to drip all water.
Clean grapes well and remove it from the stems. You can clean it three to four times to make sure that all the dirt is gone.
Boil some water for five minutes in a big vessel and drop all the grapes in to it and take it back immediately. This is to make sure that grapes is properly cleaned.
Take a pot which you wanted to make wine it. A ceramic pot is better. It is also fine if it is plastic. Metal pots are not advised.
Take the Yeast in a small vessel and pore some water in it. And keep it for some time.
Put all the grapes in to the pot and smash it with the wooden spoon. Need to just smash a little.
Pore the already cooled water, 2.5 litre in to the pot.
Pore the yeast water
Put half of the sugar 500 g
Put the wheat and stir it.
Close the pot and keep it in a cool dark place.

Next day same time open it and stir it with the wooden spoon. Make sure that you have cleaned the spoon well. Do not use detergents. Better sterilise it, by poring hot water on the spoon.
Keep it closed and keep it back in the same place.
Continue to do this process for the next 21 days.

On the 21st day open it and pore the whole thing out in to a clean dry vessel.
Clean the Ceramic pot with hot water and let it cool.
Filter the juice and pore it to the ceramic pot again.
Make sure that you use a gloves if you use your hand. Any wrong bacteria can make it to 4 litres of vine vinegar. J
Put the balance sugar 500 g and stir it .

Tightly close the pot and keep it closed for another 25 days. 25 days is the minimum. The more it is kept the better the wine. Is.
Pore it out and keep it in a glass bottle and use it when you want. Hey make sure you send me a small bottle to taste once you make it

Why do we have girls in Dad’s office?

The influence of media on the society is incredible. When I reach home in the evening there is a Tamil serial which will be playing in the television "Thirumathi Selvam". The story is about a mechanic turned in to a rich car dealer. The hero of the story was good to his wife when he was a mechanic. As he turns to a rich man, he also gets involved in an affair with a lady in his office.

A few days before I was browsing through comments in Facebook pictures and my child, Claire was leaning on me watching me browsing. I saw some of the pictures of celebrations in office. I called my wife to show her some of the interesting recent pictures. Suddenly Claire turned to my wife and asked, "Ma, why do we have girls in dad's office?" She continued, "We should ask them to come to your office".
We did not take it seriously. After a while when we were seeing the pictures of her school, I said, "See you have boys in your class, will ask them to go to your younger brothers class". To which she suddenly stated, "They are all small boys, there isn't any problem."
Both I and my wife were shocked to hear this from her. Then my wife asked her "Claire, what is the problem if there are girls in dad's office?" She said, "It is not good, that's all".
Being a member of the Great Parents Club (GPC) in Logica, I feel that this is something which is to be thought with great seriousness from the subject I just realised. At home we need to realise that the next generation is much faster than what we are. In our childhood, we had to search for information. We had to listen to some one speak, read books, read newspaper etc. First, we had to search for the source of information. And most of the time if we get an information, it was true. It was only important to make sure that the parents and teachers teach them morality. As these two were the main sources of authentic information. Now it is all around them. Information is around them and they automatically gets influenced to the way it is projected to them. And media plays a major role.
A nice generation if we want to present to the society, it is important that we talk to our children on all the subjects and clarify them in a very early stages.

CGI Weds Logica

When the shareholders, management, and customers are all getting prepared for the all cash acquisition of Logica by CGI, it is important that we employees also get prepared. A great excitement is there in each one of us. Yesterday when I was thinking about this, I got a beautiful composition of the process with arranged marriage which happens in India.
Wedding, be it in India, America or England, or where so ever it is, marks the most important event in the life of a person, when leaving behind the single life and getting ready to share each and every thing with the partner. However, the style in which it is conducted differs in each of these places. Talking about India, it is the biggest event in a girl's life. It is not only an event which brings together both bride and the groom. But it is
two different families which come together.
When we talk about arranged marriage in India, both bride and the groom, who never knew each other gets proposed by the elders in the family and makes the desertion to get them married. In most of the cases, both the family are strangers to each other. The culture differs in the homes. But yes there would be something is common which would have helped them to make the proposal. There would be people who know both of them. Elders in the family talk to each other's regarding the proposal. There will be many such proposals from many families. They enquire to advisors and friends to know more about each other's; they match their horoscope, and will conclude on the best match. Once finalised with the matchmaking first of all we will have an engagement.
Once the wedding is over, the grooms' relatives become bride's relatives, and bride's relatives become his relatives. Each other's relatives start to have faith in each other, and maintain good relationship. It brings two families, villages together.
For a bride there is so much to prepare. She is going to be in a whole new world. The day from which she gets married her last name changes to her husband's. She is from then identified as the member of the new family. Her interests are the interest of the new family. She will have all the rights in the new family and is one of them.
She will have to understand and follow the culture and traditions of the new family. She should also take the good things that she has been following and would bring those to the new family making it still better. She is considered as one important person in that family who respects and is respected by other family members.
The bride, Logica is going to CGI and so we have to prepare ourselves to be a part of the company. Tomorrow it is CGI which is our company and it would be new people all around, new management, new rules, new culture, etc. We need to take all the good things we have in here to make our new company to greater heights. Like the relatives of the bride and the groom, both our clients will be known to each other because of us. Let us prepare ourselves and make sure that our Sasural (the family to which you are married to) is full of happiness; let our contribution make the new company to grow to greater heights.
Like the bride gets herself prepared, to give the best in her new home, let us all get prepared and be proud to be part of the new company. Let us make sure we continue to give our best to make it big success.
