Though this term was coined on 26th January 1950, what caught my attention today is the word ‘Purna’ i.e. ‘complete’. Why did our very astute and intelligent leaders use this word before freedom, when we all know that there is nothing like partial freedom?

‘Helping’…does the word come across as condescending, or maybe demeaning? To me it does not! The reason being, I help others for my sake; it gives me immense joy and power, and when I empower others I get what I want as well.
I would ask of you to feed poor and under privileged. Whenever you go out to eat, make sure that you order a little extra, so that you can pack some food and give it to some needy kid or an old man. It will help feed hungry people. Remember, food never really goes to waste. Intentionally, order one or two extra portions of the same, and at times when only a gravy is left order a extra rice or roti and generously give it away.
Try this and feel the wave of goodness move through your entire being. It will give you a high far better than any sugary treat. Maybe this is your only birth, so whatever goodness you can think of, speak or do, do it now. Don’t wait for confusion or a sense of inadequacy to come in the way! Be generous…Be giving…Be yourself!

Bananas are a great food for all round health benefits, for the average person, dieter or even athletes; they provide greater benefits than most fruits. The combination of carbohydrates and B vitamins present in a banana helps provide an energy boost which makes them great to eat 30 minutes before a workout, or even at breakfast to help boost energy at the start of every day.
Bananas consist mainly of sugars (glucose, fructose and sucrose) and fiber, which makes them ideal for an immediate and slightly prolonged source of energy (more…)
