Indian Public reaction on Demonetization of 500 and 1000 Notes (Hindi) (...

From midnight of November 8, 2016, Rs. 500 and Rs.1000 will cease to be legal tender. "These notes are just papers from tomorrow," says the prime minister.

In an attempt to crack down on black money, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has phased out two major currency denominations Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes.

The announcement was made by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi in an unscheduled live televised address to the nation at 8:15 pm IST the same day. In the announcement, Modi declared circulation of all 500 and 1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series as invalid and announced the issuance of new 500 and 2000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi New Series in exchange for the old banknotes.

The Government has taken a powerful measure to eradicate black money by scrapping all notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000.

Similar measures have been taken in the past. In January 1946, currency notes of 1000 and 10,000 rupees were withdrawn and new notes of 1000, 5000 and 10,000 rupees were introduced in 1954. The Janata Party coalition government had again demonetised notes of 1000, 5000 and 10,000 rupees on 16 January 1978 as a means to curb forgery and black money.

This measure would mean that from midnight, almost Rs 6,32,600 crore in circulation in the form of Rs 1000 notes would be illegal tender. To replace them, Rs 2000 notes would be introduced.

86% of currency by value in India is of 500 and 1000 denominations.

On 28 October 2016, the total currency in circulation in India was 17.77 lakh crore. In terms of value, the notes in circulation valued to 16.42 lakh crore of which nearly 86% (around 14.18 lakh crore) was 500 and 1000 banknotes. In terms of volume that 24% (around 2,203 crore) of the total 9,026.6 crore banknotes were in circulation.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that demonetisation would clean the complete economic system, increase the size of economy and revenue base. He mentioned the demonetisation along with the upcoming Goods and Services Tax (GST) as "an attempt to change the spending habit and lifestyle".

What is Black Money

Black money is that income which is not reported for income tax purposes, done by transacting with cash and not recording such transactions. Cash is preferred because information regarding bank transactions can be accessed by income tax authorities.

Other Way of Payments
  • Other Currency Notes – Rs 100, Rs 50, Rs 20 and Rs 10 are still valid, as are all coins.
  • All cashless transactions such as cheques, cards and demand drafts, will continue as usual.
Tourists can change these notes at airports.

Certain exceptions to this exist where the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes will be accepted for an additional days that is till midnight on November 24. This includes:
  • Hospitals
  • Railway ticket booking counters
  • Government bus stands
  • Airports
The goal is eliminating active, potentially undeclared currency.

The people who are going to be affected by this decision are the ones who have stacks of black money.

There are some people who still evaded submission and decided to keep hoarding the heavy note stacks. They will be forced to get in inside the system now.

With the demonetization of these notes they become worthless overnight. You can no longer use them for any transaction. The only way to make them usable again is exchanging them in a bank or post office, and this requires your valid ID.

The method for the exchange of the demonetised banknotes with new 500 and 2000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi New Series are as Follow:
  • Citizens will have until 30 December 2016 to tender their old banknotes at any office of the RBI or any bank branch and credit the value into their respective bank accounts.
  • Cash withdrawals from bank accounts will be restricted to 10500 per day and 25000 per week per account till 24 November 2016.
  • For immediate cash needs, the old banknotes of value up to 4000 per person can be exchanged for the new 500 and 2000 banknotes as well as 100 banknotes over the counter of bank branches from 9 November 2016 by filling up a requisiton form along with a valid ID proof.
  • All ATMs will dispense banknotes of only 50 and 100 denominations, until further notice.
  • Banks will provide all cash withdrawal transactions at their ATMs free of cost to their customers till 30 December 2016. Cash withdrawals from ATMs will be restricted to 2500 per day per bank card up to 24 November 2016.
Effect of Money Demonetization
  • 1) Heavy Deflation : This will reduce the total currency circulation in the economy - leading to deflation. Deflation increases the value of money that we have because the total money supply goes down but the commodities and things available in the market have not gone down.
  • 2) Increase in Inflation : There will be a lot of people who have a lot of cash legally earned which they will deposit it in the bank. Now the bank with more deposits can do more lending. Credit (loans) will become easier and interest rates may come down. More loans given out increases broad money supply and creates inflation. But this will happen slowly, not over-night.
  • 3) It will help the government to fight Black money, corruption, terrorism and counterfeit currency with one single decision.
Initial aspect of this move is inflation as due to less availability of cash, price of every items increase. 

If the income tax department finds that a large amount of cash such as Rs 10 lakh is being deposited and is not matching the declared income of a citizen, it would be treated as a case of tax evasion.

There was the rumour on nano-chip enabled currency notes.

Reason for Money Demonetization

The incidence of fake Indian currency notes in higher denomination has increased. For ordinary persons, the fake notes look similar to genuine notes, even though no security feature has been copied. The fake notes are used for antinational and illegal activities. High denomination notes have been misused by terrorists and for hoarding black money. In order to contain the rising incidence of fake notes and black money, the scheme to withdraw has been introduced.

The withdrawn old high denomination (OHD) notes cannot be used for transacting business or as a store of value. 

People if they don’t have a bank account, they can easily open a bank account by approaching a bank branch with necessary documents required for fulfilling the KYC requirements.

According to Government, steps are necessary to arrest corruption and black money. Fake notes of higher denomination are being pumped in from our neighbourhood country which is used to fund terror activities.

For exchange up to Rs 4500 in cash you may go to any bank branch with valid identity proof. For exchange over 4500 which will be credited to the bank account, you have to go to the branch where you have an account or to any branch of the same bank.

You can use the demonetized notes till 24 November of 2016 for payment at government hospitals, purchasing bus tickets at government bus stands for travel by state government buses, train tickets at railway stations, and air tickets at airports within 72 hours after the notification.

India is a cash economy. Well over 90% of all transactions are done in cash.

Demand for gold is up giving some jewellers a temporary albeit welcome windfall.

Note :
  • 1) Fake currencies were used to fund terrorist activities against India. As a result the step of eliminating the notes was taken.
  • 2) Six months ago and printing of new currency notes of denomination 500 and 2000 had already been started. However, only the top members of the government, security agencies and the central bank were aware of the move.
  • 3) The scarcity of cash due to demonetisation has led to chaos and long queues at ATMs and banks across India.
  • 4) The State Bank of India reported to have received more than 30000 crore in bank deposit in first two days after demonetization.
  • 5) Bag of burnt notes was found in Uttar Pradesh and other part in India following demonetization.
  • 6) India has made the first move from cash economy to a digital economy. 
  • 7) Larger amount of savings and cash will find a way into the mainstream economy and be deployed for physical and financial asset creation.
  • 8) The demonetization effect is mainly responsible for the current drop of share Markets in India.
  • 9) The value of money will go up due to this move and this will very well be reflected in the prices of commodities like real estate and gold in the coming days. 
  • 10) In the near-term, this move may hurt economic activity, specifically discretionary consumption, gold and property demand.
  • 11) This move has been possible because of the availability of technology and multiple means of financial transaction. 
Consideration :
  • 1) In Gujarat, Delhi and many other major cities, sale of gold massively increased on 9 November with an increased 20 to 30% premium surging the price as much as to 40,000 from the ruling price of 31,900 per 10 grams.
  • 2) Due to demonetisation, the share markets saw drop in stocks of software industry and real estate but slight improvements in the banking sector.
  • 3) Nitin Gadkari, the Minister of Transport announced a suspension of toll collections on all national highway sacross India until midnight of 18 November.
  • 4) It points out that there are still 300 million people who do not have an identity proof such as an Aadhaar card and as such people will not be able exchange notes.
  • 5) It will impact the middle class in terms of inconvenience for several months. It will gut the very poor and the lower income groups. These are people with little in the way of ID proof and they often keep cash stashed under the bed because they have no bank accounts.
  • 6) Reports coming in from Malaysia where money exchangers are refusing to accept Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes from travellers coming from India. It is advice for customers to wait for further announcement from the Indian government.
  • 7) Today Indian economy's major problem is black money entering from Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. 
  • 8) This decision never touch that part of the stock of black money held in other forms of assets like benami properties in land and real estate, gold, foreign currency, offshore bank accounts etc. 
  • 9) This decision has particularly affected the lives of the rural and urban poor who are out a living in the vast informal economy.
  • 10) There is no guarantee that the high denomination currency notes would not be faked again.
  • 11) It will have deflationary impact in general and more specifically on real estate prices and makes homes affordable. It is also indirectly a benefit to honest tax payers.
  • 12) There is likely to be a negative impact on sectors with high cash economy in the immediate term.
  • 13) Demonetisation of currency is not entirely effective because one can not really know how much black money there is in circulation.
  • 14) Out of the current Indian population estimated at 123 crore only a minimal fraction of 2.87 crore individuals filed their income tax return and even lower, one percent or 1.25 crore paid taxes in FY 2014-15.
There have been also reports of people circumventing the restriction by making multiple such transactions at different bank branches.

The last date to exchange currency notes of 500 and 1000 is 30th December 2016. The limit is Rs 4500 till 24th November 2016. (Which changed again to Rs 2000 due to misuse of this)

Government hospitals, bus, air and train ticketing counters, fuel stations, co-operative stores, milk booth and crematoria grounds will accept these notes till 11th November 2016.

The entire country is in a surprised state right now. No one expected this huge news. The social media has gone crazy and hilarious tweets and shares are flooded all over internet.

Many labourers get paid in cash. It was mostly all in 500 Rupee notes. They have money, but they can not do anything with.

Mostly labourers live on cash and the cash in their pocket is now worthless. Worse, waiting in line for changing currencies for two days, it means that they are not working on those days.

The currency notes affected by the new policy account are roughly 86% of all notes in circulation across India which functions on cash.

The value of notes and coins as a proportion of India’s economic output, or GDP, was just over 12% significantly higher.

Lot of people said that they do not mind waiting if it helps end corruption and the black money problem.

These old notes can be converted into currency again only with identity proofs (which hundreds of millions don’t have) and the additional hardship of standing in many queues for many hours.

Comments from Bussines
  • 1) It would help curb black money. Kunal Bahl (Snapdeal and FreeCharge) also supported the move adding that it would also accelerate e-commerce.
  • 2) Former World Bank Chief Economist Kaushik Basu said that the damage is likely to be much greater than any possible benefits. It has also been noted that black money holders keep only a small fraction of their ill-gotten wealth as cash, hence targeting this cash may not be a successful strategy.
  • 3) Former Chief Election Commissioner of India S. Y. Quraishi said demonetisation could lead to long term electoral reforms.
  • 4) All denomination of notes will be reintroduced with new design and new features: Shaktikanta Das, Economic Affairs secretary. 
  • 5) “If you have valid money, it would not turn invalid. People with some vested interest are trying to create panic” said by Venkaiah Naidu
  • 6) Funny Advise : “Urgent message to anyone who robbed a bank tonight: You just got robbed…
  • 7) Most truly rich people do not keep their wealth in the form of cash, but in the form of real estate, gold, deposits in foreign bank accounts and other benaami investments. They will be largely unhurt. it is the poor who will be hurt the most by this.
A key point is that only 1% of India’s population pays income tax. As a result, what low income tax payments mean is that India is forced to raise money in less efficient ways and to govern through regulation. 

Two early demonetization in India, one in 1946 and one in 1978, both were focused on the larger bills unlike the current demonetization.

There is no need to panic. Your immediate cash is not worthless. You can refill your vehicles or restock your medicines.

Those unable to deposit Rs 1000 or Rs 500 notes by 30 December 2016 for some reason can change them till 31 March 2017 by furnishing ID proof.

It is a big reform which no one expected and will have a huge impact on people who are hoarding money and not disclosing money for tax purposes.

New updates about Money Demonetization

  • 1) Exchange limit over the counter increased from the existing 4000 to 4500.
  • 2) Cash withdrawal limit at ATMs increased from the existing 2000 to 2500 per day in the recalibrated ATMs.
  • 3) The weekly limit of 20,000 for withdrawal from bank accounts has been increased to 24,000.
  • 4) The limit of 10000 per day has been removed.
North East and other far off places which are not that developed, are not equipped with banks and ATMs, they are suffering most.

Further information of money demonetization is available on rbi.org.in and GoI website (rbi.org.in) or call the control room of RBI on Telephone Numbers 022-22602201 and 022-22602944

Our Appeal : Ordinary citizen is quite and doing their job. Common citizen know that there is a pain and inconvenience but they are supporting to crack down the corrupted people. If there is a pain there is a gain.

A rare Conversation between Krishna and Today's Arjun

Arjun : I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

Krishna : Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

Arjun : Why has life become complicated now?
Krishna : Stop analyzing life... It makes it complicated. Just live it.

ArjunWhy are we then constantly unhappy?
KrishnaWorrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.

ArjunWhy do good people always suffer?
Krishna : Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer. With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

Arjun : You mean to say such experience is useful?
Krishna : Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons later.

Arjun : Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…
Krishna : If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.

Arjun : Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?
Krishna : Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

Arjun : In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
Krishna : Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

Arjun : What surprises you about people?
Krishna : When they suffer they ask, "why me?" When they prosper, they never ask "Why me?"

Arjun : How can I get the best out of life?
Krishna : Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

Arjun : One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
Krishna : There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.

Last Words of Steve Jobs

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.

In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of God of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:

Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days ...

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.

What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? - "Sick bed" …

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – "Life".

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – "Book of Healthy Life".

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends...

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

How to Survive a Heart Attack when alone

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
  • A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
  • A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
  • Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
  • The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

Interesting Facts about Hong Kong

Hong Kong was occupied by the British army and then subsequently acquired by United Kingdom as a colony as a result of the Opium Wars in the mid-nineteenth century. Hong Kong was remained a British colony until 1997, when control was officially handed over to Republic of China.

Because it was a British colony for longer time, citizens of Hong Kong were quite different from China. It had a democratic system of local government, free press, and a culture that was deeply influenced by United Kingdom. Many residents of Hong Kong were fearful of the PRC’s intentions for the city.

Therefore, China has assured Hong Kong that it will be allowed to retain its self-governing democratic system for at least fifty years, and it is currently considered as Special Administrative Region and it does not has the same laws or restrictions as the rest of the China.

Till 1997, Hong Kong was a colony of the United Kingdom. After 1997, there is as agreement between China and United Kingdom that Hong Kong will have its own currency (the Hong Kong dollar), legal system and parliamentary system for fifty years. Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) is a part of China. But, for all practical purposes, Hong Kong is actually little separate country to China.

Hong Kong has a wholly separate legal system to China. The Chinese currency is not accepted in Hong Kong similarly Hong Kong dollar is not legal tender in China. Citizens of Hong Kong have their own separate passports (HKSAR passport).

Tourist of Hong Kong who already have visa of Hong Kong, will have to apply for a visa to China separately for visiting China. Similarly citizen of China also require permits to visit Hong Kong. Hong Kong and China has a border too. China maintains a sort of quasi embassy in Hong Kong via the Chinese ministry of foreign affairs.

The official languages of Hong Kong are Chinese (Cantonese) and English, where as China has Mandarin as official languages.

Election in Hong Kong

Hong Kong has a type of democracy but it does not have universal suffrage like other democratic countries. 

Hong Kong has its own mini parliament in the form of LEGCO (Legislative Council). Representatives in LEGCO are either elected by direct election or by Electoral College. 

The resident in Hong Kong who live for more than seven years, are eligible to vote in direct elections, but elect only 1/3 members of the council directly. The remaining 2/3 members are elected by a 20,000 strong functional constituency which are made up of businessmen and professionals such as doctors, engineers, lawyers etc. These groups form into broad parties formed through mutual interests mostly business related.

The Chief Executive is directly answerable to China. The Chief Executive is elected by 800 members drawn from the functional constituency, so there are no direct elections.

The residents of Hong Konger are very concerned about direct election.

Hong Kong Vs China

The sharp contrast in system and culture between Hong Kong and the mainland has caused a fair amount of tension in the years since the handover in 1997. There are significant differences in political culture and systems of government of Hong Kong with remaining China, so the tension between residents of Hong Kong and mainland China will remain for some time to come.

Natural Treatment and Cause of Hypothyroidism

The thyroid is the thermostat of the body. It produces hormones that work to keep our metabolic rate stable and keep energy-producing processes in balance. The thyroid is essential in protein synthesis, growth, temperature regulation, and oxygen consumption of cells. If the thyroid is deficient, the rest of the body functions poorly. With low thyroid, cholesterol can shoot up to dangerous levels.

Hypothyroidism is a health problem that occurs due to underactive thyroid gland. Due to hypothyroidism the metabolism rate of the body gets affected as metabolism is controlled mainly by the help of thyroid gland. Under-active or hypothyroid conditions can cause low energy.

Symptoms associated with hypothyroidism are fatigue, increased sensitivity to cold, constipation, dry skin, puffy face, hoarse voice, cramping of muscles, sudden weight gain, depression and brittle fingernails and hair.

Causes for Hypothyroidism

Some causes of low thyroid besides inheritance are : iodine depletion, x-rays or low dose radiation, pituitary and thyroid malfunction, air and environmental pollutants, overuse of diet pills and other drugs, and vitamin A, E, and zinc deficiency. 

Many times it is caused by lifestyle factors such as poor eating habits, lack of sleep, not handling stress well. Other times it can be environmental toxins causing or contributing to such a condition.

Home Remedies for Hypothyroidism

  • The enzymes from live foods help the body to maintain proper metabolism. Foods that heal include sprouts, salads, raw vegetables, and thermos cooked grains to retain enzymes which heal and feed the glands.
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin A, such as yellow vegetables, eggs, carrots, and dark green vegetables. 
  • Iodine rich foods that nourish the thyroid are: fish and sea vegetables such as kelp. Seaweeds are very nourishing to the glands.
  • Zinc and copper are important in helping the body make thyroid hormone. 
  • Foods rich in zinc are : beef, oatmeal, chicken, seafood, dried beans, bran, spinach, seeds, and nuts. 
  • Foods rich in copper are : organ meats, eggs, yeast, legumes, nuts, and raisins.
  • The amino acid tyrosine is helpful. Tyrosine is found in beef, chicken, and fish. Soy should be only used in small amounts.
  • Meditation and visualization using colour therapy may be helpful. Visualize a beautiful blue light and feel the colour into the thyroid area. Blue is a very soothing and healing colour. It stables our energy.
  • Aerobic exercise such as jumping or fast walking may enhance our nutritional program and help to strengthen the thyroid. Exercises regularly help us to improve our blood flow which will help supply the cells in your body with fresh nutrients and oxygen while burning off toxins.
Effect of Coconut Oils on Hypothyroidism

When the oils are stored in our tissues, they are much warmer and more directly exposed to oxygen and so their tendency to oxidize is very great. These oxidative processes can damage enzymes and other parts of cells, and especially their ability to produce energy. The enzymes which break down proteins are inhibited by unsaturated fats; these enzymes are needed not only for digestion, but also for production of thyroid hormones, clot removal, immunity, and the general adaptability of cells. 

Since the unsaturated oils block protein digestion in the stomach, we can be malnourished even while “eating well.” There are many changes in hormones caused by unsaturated fats. Unsaturated oils block thyroid hormone secretion, its movement in the circulatory system, and the response of tissues to the hormone. 

Coconut oil has ability to prevent weight-gain or cure obesity by stimulating metabolism. It is quickly metabolized and functions in some ways as an antioxidant.

Coconut oil is saturated and very stable. Coconut oil does not require the enzyme stress that vegetable oils do, preventing T4 to T3 hormone conversion, not only because it is a stable oil, but also because it is processed differently in the body and does not need to be broken down by enzyme dependent processes as do long chain fatty acids. Also, since the liver is the main place where damage occurs from oxidized oils that cause cell membrane damage, and since the liver is where much of the conversion of T4 to T3 takes place, eliminating long chain fatty acids from the diet and replacing them with medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil can help in rebuilding cell membranes and increasing enzyme production that will assist in promoting the conversion of T4 to T3 hormones.

There are many natural remedies that can help in preventing, controlling and treating Hypothyroidism.
  • Iodine : Iodine is essential to ensure proper functioning of thyroid gland. The iodine level of our body can be increased by including natural sources of iodine in our diet. Some of natural sources of Iodine are yoghurt, fish, meat, eggs, seafood, potato, radish, bananas, oatmeal and salt.
  • Ginger : Ginger is a good source of zinc, magnesium and potassium and its powerful anti-inflammatory properties can help in improving the functionality of thyroid. Fresh ginger root slices can be added to soups and other dishes or used as ginger herbal tea. Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning.
  • Coconut Oil : Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids which help in improving the functionality of thyroid. It also boosts the body metabolism rate. Coconut oil is a saturated fat that we can consume by adding it to milk. 
  • Primrose Oil : Primrose oil is rich in amino acids which nourish the thyroid gland. This oil can help in improving the functionalities of thyroid gland and it also remove the problems associated with hypothyroidism such as hair loss and heavy menstrual flow.
  • Black Walnut : Black walnut is a good source of organic iodine. Black walnut which is also rich in magnesium helps in improving the functionality of thyroid gland.
  • Flax Seeds : Flax seeds contain a good amount of omega 3 fatty acids which are essential for smooth functioning of the thyroid gland. Take a tablespoon of ground flaxseeds and have with water every day on empty stomach. We can also consume a teaspoon of flax seed oil daily to improve the functionality of the thyroid gland. 
  • Nettle Herb : Nettle herb is a rich source of iodine. Nettle herb is good to balance the thyroid with both under and over activity. Nettle can be used to make an herbal tea which can be consumed three times a day. We can use nettle oil for gently massaging the neck area. This will encourage production of thyroid.
For proper functioning of thyroid gland, it is important to expose your body for twenty minutes daily to early morning sunrays. This helps us to maintain the vitamin D level of our body which plays a important role in maintaining healthy immune function and calcium metabolism.

The use of "toning" or singing the tone of G may also help to balance and stimulate the throat area. 

Precautions for Hypothyroidism
  • Avoid refined foods, saturated fats, sugars, and white flour products. If the thyroid problem is severe it is then good to avoid brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, kale, mustard greens, peaches and pears as they have anti-thyroid substances and may suppress the thyroid function.
  • Carbohydrates other than those contained by potatoes and whole wheat products should be avoided. Cakes, pastries, sweets and other calorie rich items should be avoided.
  • Certain food items containing preservatives, white flour products and stuffs high on sugar should be avoided by thyroid patients.
  • Beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option.

I don’t Understand

  • Why we can’t have morality without dictating religion.
  • Why we can’t have differences without hatred.
  • Why we can’t have disagreements without belittlements.
  • Why we can’t love a higher spirit, but each in our own way.
  • Why we can’t feed the homeless but can rebuild the world.
  • Why we can’t find charity for our neighbors but can pray for a stranger.
  • Why we can’t see our own faults but can so easily find them in others.
  • Why we can’t see the good but so readily point out the bad.

I don’t understand
  • Why love doesn’t return the gift of generosity.
  • Why we profess to value honesty then lie to protect ourselves.
  • Why success can’t be won without deceit.
  • Why we abuse the world but cherish possessions.
  • Why profit means more than the method that achieves it.
  • Why what people say isn’t what they mean.

I don’t understand.

  • Why we complain more about what we don’t have instead of seeing what we’ve already been given. 
  • Why we want so much when it’s usually the simple things that make us happy. 
  • Why we try to be someone and something we aren’t instead of celebrating who we truly are. 
  • Why we aren’t more thankful for the people in our lives instead of the things in our lives.

Great Scarifies of the Mother for her Child

Mother undoubtedly is the most sacred person to everyone. Her love and sacrifice know no bounds. She carries the child for ten months in her womb, goes through excruciating pain and discomfort while giving life to the child, nurses, feeds, teaches, imparts values, knowledge and everything good to her loving child. Mother does everything for the child; nothing is left out, with least expectations of goodness. She is the most vociferous advocate in favour, when the whole world goes against, her love, compassion, overflowing goodness and kindness have no parallels in history. Mother is God Incarnate in every sense of the term.

Taking care of mother at old age is our sacred duty, no one should ignore. Mother is so precious, words cannot describe her. I bow to my mother and all mothers of my family and my world.

Mother is above everything in the world. Running after the material world, many of us forget to take care of our beloved parents. Irrespective of busy schedule/ status/ money, kindly spare some time for them, love them, be with them, please take care of them, as we realise the value of their pure love once they are not with us. Please do not forget their sacrifice to make what we are today and please do not ignore them, especially in their old age. Love, love and love our parents as they are the living Gods.

Let us all love, respect and take every care of our mother, let every word convey our feelings.

How to Be an Inspiration to Others

Sachin Tendulkar has inspired thousands of young boys to take up cricket.  Lata Mangeshkar has inspired many to become professional singers. There are a million such examples of people who have been an inspiration to others. How does one get there? How can you inspire people? How can you become someone that people look up to?

Do what You love

Had Sachin become an accountant, would he have been so successful? Would he have become the sweetheart of the nation that he is today? Perhaps not. So start by doing what you love to do and are good at. At the same time, don’t think about money or fame. Just quietly go about doing your job and success will follow.

Success breeds Inspiration

Look at the Tatas and Birlas. I am sure they didn’t get into business saying one day we will inspire people. Inspiration happened on the way. Their success is one of the reasons why people look up to them.

It’s not only Success

But it’s not only success, it’s their personality- them as people that inspires us too. There are thousands of people who have become successful using unscrupulous means. We don’t get inspired by them. Even your father or a friend could be an inspiration. Not because they are rich and successful, but maybe because they never lie, or are hardworking or are always there for you.

It doesn’t Need to be Big

You don’t necessarily need to climb Everest to be inspiring. It could be really simple things. Like learning to read and write at the age of 80, finishing a novel you’ve been working on for years, quitting your job to open a restaurant, taking care of your ill mother. Any activity that is done with all your heart will be an inspiration to others.

Putting Others before You

Mother Teresa was a saint, not because she always dressed in white and smiled at everyone, but because she sacrificed everything for others. She always put others before her. Give up the larger chunk of apple pie to your sibling, let your friend go to Disneyland instead of you because he can’t afford or, on your birthday, instead of spending thousands of rupees on a party and getting drunk, go to an orphanage and play with the children there. The day you start giving up what you love for others, that’s the day people will start looking up to you and will get inspired. But this doesn’t mean you pretend to give just to be admired. You really should want to do it.


Even after being so immensely successful, Sachin and Lata are both incredibly humble human beings. There’s not an iota of pride in their voice when they speak in public. That’s one of the most important traits one needs to inspire others. The more successful you become, the richer you get, more humble you should be.

Start giving, and serving others selflessly and sooner or later, people will start admiring you for the person that you are.

Future in Tablets Technology

A Waterproof tablet PC from Fujitsu is seen lowered into a fish tank at the world's biggest high-tech fair, the CeBIT, on March 6, 2012 in Hanover, central Germany.

Let's look at where the trends point out for upcoming generations of tablet computers.

Transparent Displays :

Transparent glass displays are a staple of technology concept videos and while there has been immense innovation in display technology and devices, not much has translated to mobile devices yet. The next generation of tablets will most certainly move in this direction. Also, the tablets should allow extending the display to a television or another computer or project on a screen in an intuitive manner.

Diverse Form-Factor :
Foldable panels that fit one's pocket and display panels that can be extended to one's preference - the next generation of tablets would not be hard-lined on form factor and dimensions. A tablet, like a phone, is an intimate device and hence needs to be attached like a sensory organ.

File Storage :

As Internet and mobile data continues to grow ubiquitous and online services grow in number and capabilities, your data and preferences live on the cloud. The local storage becomes irrelevant, only sufficing the intermediary needs. Also, this would allow seamless migration from one device to another irrespective of device segment or operating system.

Interface :

While pointing via a mouse is old world, the touch would be the next casualty. Humans don't touch to interact in most cases. We speak or move our hands to explain things. Several devices of the current generation - game consoles, smartphones et al - employ bits and pieces of gesture and voice recognition and the next generations of tablet would have these baked in exhaustively with comprehensive knowledge of local cultures and languages.

Location-Awareness :

One of the biggest leaps that smartphones and tablets allowed was making the phone and apps location-aware using the GPS. This allows the information to be better served and locally relevant. Several services like Foursquare have built successful engagement on top of this, and it is anybody's guess that future evolutions would also bring context to the awareness.
Wireless Charging :

I've wished for this one every time I've snapped my laptop's charger and taken a fall through the cable. While wireless Internet and near-field communication are moving progressively, the future tablets would also cut this last cord.

Capabilities :

Snap your boarding pass, and your tablet would give you your flight details. Or place a phone or another tablet next to it, and data transfer would happen. Advances in near-field communication, image recognition, and augmented reality would give future computing devices immense power to enable seamless communication and enhance productivity in a natural manner.
Other Concept in Tablet :

Better battery backup, tougher casing and resistant to a fall or a dip in the water, and an overall holistic ease of managing the hardware.

8 Easy Ways to make Money on Internet

As long as you have the inclination, a little bit of expertise and some free time, you can earn some money on the internet from the comfort of your own home.

Here are some popular ways to make that quick extra buck.

1. Self Publish Books :  If you love writing and want to get a book published, Amazon offers a free service called Kindle Direct Publishing. The service allows anyone to self publish books on the Kindle (electronic) bookstore and earn royalties from sales. 

There are two plans you can choose from — the 35% royalty works across any book sold in any country) while the 70% royalty plans works if you sell in a few select countries. Indian authors can choose to set prices specifically for the Indian bookstore and receive royalty payments in Indian currency as well.

2. Make and Sell your Applications :  With so many smartphones and tablets, app development can be a very lucrative business. You can learn about developing apps online — there are various tutorials available for free. That's the easy part — the hard part is coming up with an idea that 'clicks'.

Once you make an app, submit it to the respective app store, set a price and choose whether you want to earn from inapp advertising. Your earnings, after deducting the appropriate fees, will be paid monthly.

3. Sell old House Stuff Online : An easy way to earn some money on the internet is by selling old stuff that you have around the house. Websites like olx.in, quickr.com and http://craigslist.co.in provide a free classifieds platform. 

You need to create an account, enter the product details, location, the expected price along with some photographs — listing usually go live within a couple of hours. Interested buyers can directly contact you and finalize the sale.

4. Start an Online Shop : With some creativity, you can learn to make handicrafts or if you know a wholesale dealer, purchase unique things at low prices. Once you have some stock ready, you can set up an online shop to sell these goods on sites like ebay.in or indiebazaar.com

Both sites have a simple signup process. After you get verified as a seller, they provide you with a step-by-step wizard to set your online store (how to add photos and details of items you want to sell).

5. Work Online for Money : The internet is full of bogus companies that promise to pay you for work but never will. For instance, all places that offer money to fill surveys or those that require payment up front are scammers. 

Two popular and reliable places to find work are odesk.com and elance.com. Both have a similar system: set up a profile and take tests to prove your proficiency in certain areas. 

Once done, you'll be listed as a contractor/ freelancer and people can hire you for an hourly rate. You can get paid more by working hard, getting better at what you do and getting good feedback (ratings) from your clients.

6. Sell your Photos Online : Numerous stock websites like shutterstock.com, shutterpoint.com and istockphoto.com host photographs submitted by members. Depending on the site's policy, you can earn between a 15 to 85% royalty on each sale. 

The better the quality of photos and the larger your online portfolio, the more you will sell. Usually, each photograph you want to upload will have to be 'selected' by them first — and they usually have strict requirements of what can or cannot go on sale.

7. E-Tutoring : If you are fluent in any subject and have some tutoring experience, you can sign up on websites like 2tion.netor, tutorvista.com as an online tutor. The sites require you to create a tutor profile with details such as the subjects in which you are fluent, what classes/courses you want to teach, your experience level, preferred timings for tuitions and the remuneration expected. 

After verification, the site lists your profile on their portal where interested students can connect with you for tuitions. You can opt for virtual workspaces with built in teaching aids like live chat and collaborative whiteboards. Once you get better at tutoring, you can increase your monthly earnings by teaching multiple students simultaneously.

8. Earn from Advertising : A reliable way to earn money is from Google AdSense on your blog/website or ads on your YouTube channel. To get started, create a Google AdSense account at google.com/adsense

You can use the same account with your blog, website or YouTube channel. To maximize earnings from your blog or website, your objective needs to be to get the maximum number of visitors possible. 

Write about what you know and what you're passionate about. On YouTube, make sure that your videos are original and interesting. Promote your channel to get more views. Apart from views, your objective should also be to get more people to like/ favourite your video and to subscribe to your channel. 

The build up will be slow and Google only makes payments once your balance crosses $100, so don't get disheartened. Persistent efforts pay off in the long run.

The Bull who Cried

Knowing it was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realize or are skeptic about when it comes to animals - he showed emotion.

As reported by "Weekly World News", a group of workers walked a bull to a packaging factory. They were about to slaughter him to make steaks and beef stews. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped going forward and knelt down on his two front legs. The bull... was all in tears.

How did he know he was going to get killed before he entered the slaughter house? He is even smarter than people.

Mr. Shiu, a butcher recalled, "When I saw this kind of so-called "stupid" animal sobbing and with his eyes in fear and sorrow, I started trembling." "I called the rest over to see. They were just as surprised. We kept pushing the bull forward, but he just didn't want to move and sat there crying."

Billy Fong, owner of the packaging factory said, "People thought animals didn't cry like human beings. However that bull really sobbed like a baby." At that time, more than ten strong men witnessed the scene and they were all touched. Those who were responsible for slaughtering even felt more touched and teared as well.

Other workers working at the same slaughter house also came to see the crying bull. It was all packed with people. They were all shock by this scene. Three of them said they would never forget this crying bull when they slaughter other animals.

With both man and animal crying, everyone knew that nobody could kill the bull. The problem was, what should they do with him? In the end, they raised funds to buy this crying bull and sent him to a temple, where the kind monks would take care of him for life.

After the workers had made a decision, a miracle happened. A worker said, "When we promised this bull that we will not kill him, he started moving and followed us."

How did he understand people's words?

Mr. Shiu said "Believe it or not? This is real although it sounds unbelievable." No doubt, this bull changed these butchers' lives.
