5 Minutes To Stress Relief

I am happy to address my readers once again  with a very important subject of day-to-day problems: Stress.
Stress is a force that strains and deforms. People, events and circumstances take over you, and create stress. It is a physical expression of emotional insult. Emotions like Fear, Guilt, Shame, Anger, Worry, Guilt and Doubt lead to stress. That practically covers every normal, routine emotion. Then, how can we deal with stress?

Facebook Friends Count

Facebook Friends:

More the number of friends, more the time needed to see their updates and respond. Sometimes, one feels it to be a waste of time.

So better avoid unknown, half-known and the friends of friends types.

What is the ideal maximum number?

ICU (Intensive Care Unit)

ICU (Intensive Care Unit). It is the most alert and up-to-date department in a hospital.

Minimum expectations of the patient admitted here are would be:

There is a doctor present all the time (round-o-clock) to treat the patient and attend to any emergencies.The present doctor must be having technical skills and know-how in the management of critical care. He/she may be a Physician/Anaesthetist/Critical care treatment specialist.Necessary gadgets like cardiac monitor, ventilator, pace-maker, cardiac defibrillator and such others are present in working condition.Emergency Medicines, Oxygen, continuous electric power and assisting staff on duty.

Social Media Addiction

Addiction!

Internet users with Facebook, Whatsapp, Emails and what not, very well know the (usefulness and) uselessness of the continuous connectivity and still can not stop the wastage of time in this activity... just like the addicts of alcohol, smoking and tobacco chewing...

Compulsive Attention To Mobile Notifications

Addiction to be attended to as an emergency:

Beware if you are seeing in your mobile/computer while being with some-one talking to you.You are missing a great real moment for virtual reality and showing a great insult to the people around.

This is internet addiction needing urgent attention. Real life relationships and persons around are more important than distant imaginary 'virtual' world.

Camera And Photography

Just owning a camera does not make you a photographer!

You have to learn the fundamentals of photography and technical know-how of cameras, or you will come out with dull and irritating photos. I request my friends to be kind enough to see the image, its light and contents ("the subject") appearing in the frame before using the "CLICK" button.

Anavils - Endangered Species Among Human

After Parsis, Anavils (Anavil Brahmins, અનાવિલ બ્રાહ્મણ ) are the fastest decreasing community. The total population of Anavils around the world does not exceed two lakhs figure and that is also fast reducing day by day. Days are not far, beyond a century or so, when they will have to be seen/found in records, photos and videos. Why?


Because,
   - they get married too late,    - many are dying unmarried,    - they wait for the career to be settled before the first (and maybe the only) childbirth.

The Sun, The Name

The SUN is hot, so provides heat.... enlightened, so provides light.

Gujarati words for the Sun... Suraj (સૂરજ), Bhaskar (ભાસ્કર), Ravi (રવિ )...
Here is a coincidence to quote:
Name of the father was Bhaskar (Sun) till he went to school.And the name of the son was Ravi (Sun) till he went to school. Their parents changed their names in school as Bharatchandra and Rahul, respectively!


Confession on Women's Day

Being a member of a male-dominated culture and having an Anavil inheritance of male-ego, I was wrongly considering myself superior to my wife Dr Bhavana Desai (Devyani). I want to confess, I was wrong.


Before Shirdi, Shivarimal and After Saputara, Shivarimal - Story of a School for Blind Children

We visit Saputara (the only hill station in Gujarat) round the year for pleasure trips. Similarly, the devotees of Sai Baba visit Shirdi frequently. For a change and possibly a better experience, I’d like to suggest you visit Shivarimal (a Free Residential School for Visually Impaired (Blind) and Physically Challenged Children), about 20 km from Saputara and 93 km away from Bilimora on Bilimora-Saputara road. Let me tell you my reasons for details.

My close friend Piyushbhai Dharaiya formed a charitable trust in the name of his wife Late Jyotsanaben and decided to donate the interest away, every year. I suggested him to visit Shivarimal School for Blind Children and experience the emotions of blind students. We finally visited this place on Sunday, February 16th, 2014 and the result is this introductory article.

Hatred – My Involuntary Emotion

Whatever idealistic discussions we do, there are certain emotions that come out without our will – involuntarily. Hatred is one of them. I shall introduce the subject first.

Penguin dictionary describes Hate as a deep enduring intense emotion expressing animosity, anger and hostility towards a person, group or object. So, hate is deep and emotional dislike created by ideas, individuals, entities or objects.

Become an iMature Student – A Book On Internet

Computer users having internet connection are most of the time restricted to the Social Media like "Facebook" or just reading E-mails received. Here is a book for them to teach all the details on the subject.
