Great souls have come to mankind to uplift their lives and the way to lead it. They have always inspired mankind to master the art of living in a way to stay close to purity and happiness. Sri Loknath Baba was one such eminent personality who still glitters in million of Bengali hearts. Amongst a few – a very few semi-legendary Hindu saints, who marked their names all across India and even abroad, Sri Loknath Baba was the one.

10 more reasons to have sex...

1. Do you have a blocked or stuffy nose or are you suffering from asthma or hay fever? To cure these ailments indulge in lots of love making as
sex is a natural antihistamine.

2. Suffering from headache? Immidiately head for the bed as a love making session can cure you of headache by realising tension that blocks the blood vessels in your brain.

3. Suffer from bad breath? Start the practise of kissing your wife while going out as kissing encourages saliva to wash down food bits from teeth and reduce the acid level in your mouth that causes tooth decay.

4. Insomania? Sex is the safest tranquilizer in the whole universe far better than valium.

Whispering Corridor

Now it has become fashionable to maintain and run for niche blogs, but reading a niche blog is not fun always, they are too technical and often boring. The actual flavor of blogging comes from general and personal blogs. Blogs that discusses about various issues of life, questions and teases our brain cells are few, but are generally very interesting and informative. Unfortunately we don’t really get to see this genre of blogs that often. It’s not as easy as writing a technical blog. In fact a personal general blog deals so much with emotion, feelings and experiences that is why it becomes quite difficult to find bloggers who delves into these subtle side of life. I have recently found a blog called Whispering Corridor that is a clean general blog that is designed on a white based design theme and deals with various issues and aspects, like a combination of expression of thoughts and sentiments, socialization, entertainment, information, technology, downloads and money-making .

Red banana

We have seen a variety of bananas but mostly they are yellow in colour. There is also another variety of banana that is red in colour ( a reddish-purple skin ) . These types of bananas are quite similar to the yellow ones we eat. Only its little softer and sweeter with a raspberry-banana flavor . They are generally imported from Costa-rica to USA and are little stouter and plumper ( In India, though , we get red bananas that are about 8 inches and above) than the ordinary yellow bananas we normally consume. These red bananas can be eaten exactly like the yellow ones and these types of bananas are mostly used for preparing those snacks and foods that requires the banana to fried ,baked or roasted.

World over being obese is a serious concern for people

World over being obese is a serious concern for people. The obesity problem is so acute in certain countries that the Government also had to sit up , take notice and introduce several steps in curbing this menace. People on their part as individuals are also trying to keep up the struggle. Obesity not always happens due to careless food intake. There are several factors including genes and other hormonal factors that lead to obesity. So there is a need of specialized medication considering various reasons causing the problem and also the difference in each Individual.

To judiciously decide which product to use it is necessary you do a comparative study on each of the options, which is again as difficult as the previous option.

An Indian blog in German?

I recently came upon a blog "India through the Eyes of An Indian" . It is quite interesting because its written in German. I had to translate it in English. Well contents are nice and thought provoking but its not only about India . Its got a wide variety of subject from hypnosis to richest Indians but translated pages are not fun to read. I had to read some of the articles very carefully (awesome grammar due to translation) but they were worth it. I think it could have been India oriented but over all its nice.

A report from university of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston states that being happy , helps patient recuperating from a stroke better than people with a more gloomier attitude. Research showed that people during the first three months after a stroke tend to function better when they
are positive and are relatively more independent in doing regular work than people who doesn't help themselves much. This positive attitude of the patient not only helps them but also has a profound impact on the family members. So be happy.

Sleep with your dead wife?

Image
I read an article recently about a South African man who sleeps beside his dead wife at weekends. He didn't want to be parted from her after she died so he has built an air conditioned mausoleum for her in his garden. On friday night through to Monday morning he sets up home there and lives "normally", except he lifts the lid of her coffin and has her join in with life. He doesn't have sex with her! Her skin is now shrunk to the bone as the decomposition process runs its course. Could/would you entertain such an idea if it was your loved one or you? Is he mad or sad. Or is this entirely acceptable to you?

Favourite moments of life?

I have images that I like. These are fond memories which always has a pleasant feeling associated with it. It would be rather harsh on my part to call one of them favorite among so many of those moments that made me appreciate the creation of god . All the moments that I have lived on this beautiful planet is a notable experience. With Pictures I have just tried in vain to immortalize the snapshots of life.Keeping a dated album of Pictures of life always serves as an interesting way of keeping oneself alive, and re-live this small life many times over.
Take a look at some pictures others call them their favorite.

Popularity of Fast Food and its Dangers

Image
Junk food Lovers!

Who doesn't love to gorge on those yummy roadside foods once in a while? Though due to health reasons we tend to keep away from junk food, there is no harm if we tease our taste buds occasionally. I guess, those fast foods and snacks are supposed to be great appetizers!

I have seen that North Americans simply love junk food! Every month nearly 90 percent of the children in America eat at McDonald's! In the United States, the food industry spends more than $33 billion a year to advertise products rich in fat, sugar and salt. Despite all those risks of obesity and cancer, average Americans consume more food rich in fat and sugar, than their European or Oriental counterparts. Aerated soft drinks, milkshakes and smoothies contain twice as much fat as hamburgers. However, these are a huge craze among school, college and even office goers.


Speaking of India, the fast food craze is rising among youngsters every day. People now consume more roadside junks and snacks th…

My son has just crossed the two months mark !! and he is doing fine. Thanks to the almighty for his overall well being.


I am from a Joint family which gradually became clusters of nuclear families after the demise of my grand parents. A joint family according to me is always a best place for a child to grow for the child is guaranteed of collective protection and is afforded collective education in social manners which makes them more compatible with life . Now due to several financial and other socio-economic causes these families are getting extinct by the day . Its heartening as well as disheartening to know of a mother of five children in the contemporary time. Well One can argue that this is something which should not be encouraged as bigger families would put undue stress on the limited resources of the world as well as the family concerned, But if a family has the means to sustain its large number of members then I believe its the best thing to be called a family. I wish ' …

It’s sometimes just a silly mistake that proves fatal.

Image
Around 7000 deaths according to Institute of Medicine (IOM) in July 2006 occur in USA, and the figure is not exactly known in India. Most deaths related to wrong medication are not generally reported accurately in India. Many a causes could be listed for these fatalities and the responsibilities are also almost equally shared among the patients, pharmacists, Doctors. With doctors having the lion’s share in these fatal goof ups. We have often come across doctors with handwriting that’s best understood by them. I personally knew a Doctor who was quite good and we often visited him, he also had a Drug store which his wife used to man. All the drugstores in the locality knew about it and always referred us to her store whenever they saw the Doctor’s prescription as none could after their best efforts decipher what the doctor had written. This is not that uncommon phenomenon; its world over, the Doctors are known for bad handwriting owing to various causes including tremendous work pressur…

Pretty women have Ugly Husbands?

Image
It’s often seen in successful marriages that the man concerned is often a notch or two below the woman in looks. All most all of us probably, have wondered about this phenomenon, after seeing stunningly beautiful women paired with ordinary or even below average looking men as long term couples. Why is it so common? Well it has got something to do with what a man or a woman longs for in their spouse? There is a distinct divide among the men and women on this issue, and it seems to have a uniform proportion in almost all part of the globe barring few exceptions. Men almost always and everywhere place great importance on the beauty, while women looked for support and care from their husband. Though beauty can never be defined exactly, there are some standards universally accepted as pointers of beauty in a women like a large pair of eyes, symmetric faces , So called ‘baby face’, ‘average face’ etc. Though past researches seems to have proved that people of comparable good looks attract e…

Love or lust? It shows on your face

Image
It’s possible to figure out if some really feels for you, or is more interested in a short physical stint by carefully studying their faces. In a study conducted by Durham, St. Andrews and Aberdeen University on 700 heterosexuals revealed ,that though there exist no definite facial pattern to differentiate between lust and love , a whopping majority of 72% figured out correctly the sexual attitude of men and women after being shown them the photographs or facial images of men and women. It showed that men believe that women who have wide eyes and large lips are attractive and it was also noted that men found women who are open to short physical relationship more attractive. Women on the other hand found men who are after long term relationship more desirable. Like it was a common conception of women that masculine men are likely to be more unfaithful than those with softer physic. A man with a square jaw, large nose and small eyes are perceived to be among those who are mostly after l…
