harmful (3)

17th March 2014: Why is holika burnt? Perhaps you've read or heard the story. If not then search online and you should easily find it.

Also, what did you do today about "Toxic colours are freely being sold everywhere. These colours contain harmful substances such as zinc, chromium, mercury, lead, mercury, asbestos etc." Are you sure that you didn't have harmful chemicals in colors that you put on others or others put on you? Also, what about the colors in our food that we're eating daily?

Also, what did you do today about "Researchers are beginning to suspect that India's unusual mix of polluted air, poor sanitation and contaminated water may make the country among the most dangerous in the world for lungs." Are you sure that the severely harmful chemicals in your air today are much within the maximum limits including when burning holikas and the chemicals in colors mixing in air, water and land and then going inside us over the long term?

Also, what did you do today about "The NGO Consumer Voice, one of the petitioners in the court, said the quantum of pesticides in fruits and vegetables in India, especially those sold in Delhi markets, was as much as 750 times the European standards." Are you sure that the sweets and other food which you're eating today and over the long term don't have harmful chemicals which aren't even allowed by others in our world for import, however, they keep getting sold here?

Shared on Holi 2013:

On Holi, push people away if you must to avoid getting harmful colors on you and which then might spoil your relationship with those people. Have a Blessed Holi!

Green Blue Holi Colors More Dangerous

I've been coughing off and on for some years which upon checkups from two quality doctors seems to be due to I being allergic to something in air (I think high pollution because I never coughed like this during college years in USA and before that in Delhi). I reside in Delhi region which has a very high amount of pollution. I wonder if it's Ravan making us burn the harmful firecrackers? In my FB wall post yesterday, I've shared the link of another of my Health and Fitness India network's blog posts which lists the possibly very harmful chemicals in a firecracker:

The world is amazing! I felt blessed on Dusshera http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vijayadashami In the morning, I received email from HDFC with my bank balance and within a minute an email from my student loan co-signer in USA! My co-signer has been great to me for which I'm blessed!

During evening when I was going to the gym, there was no auto rickshaw at the stand outside my apartment complex. After a minute or so, I saw one coming and the driver was pushing it because it was broken. The driver was also talking to someone that there's a traffic jam towards the main road. It was perhaps because Ramlila http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramlila was going on in the large ground across the main road. I then thought that I shouldn't go out in open on ground today because of the possibility of very high pollution due to burning of Ravan. I then thought again which I've also thought before that perhaps Ravan is hurting us even today because of the very harmful smoke that we would breathe in due to it and that it's due to Ravan that we burn harmful firecrackers every year.

If you aren't aware then my latest comment (bottom most) on http://www.healthfitnessindia.com/profiles/blogs/anti-pollution-mask-delhi-metro-police?id=6458971%3ABlogPost%3A1560&page=4#comments is about the very harmful chemicals possibly present in firecrackers. I also wonder about our elders leading us to such high amount of pollution here.

I then decided to workout at my apartment. I generally watch an episode of NCIS along with dinner. However, I did indoor cycle while watching it and so watched three of them. In the second one, "NCIS - Season 7 Episode 19 - Guilty Pleasure", student loans were mentioned! I wish that my work would increasingly justify the student loans I took for my college which was great!

Today I interacted with a girl who plays rummy well and has also won money online but doesn't like her college teachers for her CS degree. I shared with her these C Programming Lectures PPTs http://www.shaktisaran.com/CLectures.html and that I would also try to clear her doubts as best as I can including because she's working with me in my recruitment work and I also wish that when she'll be doing well professionally then she would also help others given there're colleges and institutes which don't seem to be doing even well enough for their students according to their students and that which is negatively affecting our society.

I wish that we can learn the great human values from Lord Ram.

11th April 2014: Someone liked my this post in a group after some years on which I then commented: Thank You for liking PERSON after some years of I posting this! Yesterday I wasn't carrying enough money to go to vote because I thought that I would walk but then I saw autos at the stand and so thought of taking one. Moreover, I requested the driver to wait and if it wouldn't be a problem. The driver responded that I can pay later and that there's no issue in waiting and that all the auto drivers at the stand think nice of me. I then had again thought of doing more for the drivers which I would! (y)

I feel sorry for the auto drivers because I've told some of them that they should wear anti-pollution masks on which they've said that they think that the police wouldn't let them due to security issues. In this regard, I also suggest to Google "anti pollution india" and on 1st page is http://www.healthfitnessindia.com/profiles/blogs/anti-pollution-mask-delhi-metro-police

How do you feel as an Indian when you read it and think that how come people have led India to like this? Is this also why the aware and wealthy people seem to be moving their children abroad and also having their grandchildren abroad? How would India be like in the next decades when the people have become very weak considering human potential since this would weaken the people? What are you doing to make things better?

Jab maa aisi conditions mein bachcha paida kare to woh kaisi maa: "Researchers are beginning to suspect that India's unusual mix of polluted air, poor sanitation and contaminated water may make the country among the most dangerous in the world for lungs."

"Delhi has turned into a pollution zone so deadly that children in the Capital have the lungs of chain-smokers, and all the associated respiratory ailments."

5th September 2012: I felt like an Indian street dog considering the world when going through a market which sells including expensive things for common man, however, the area has much filth. I also met a person who goes to the same gym and that she was also there shortly before. I shared with her about my anti pollution mask which I was wearing and that I was trying to work to get the auto rickshaws fixed with water coolers to help drivers not get sick from potentially harmful water that they might get from outside and that to also help them save money and that I was learning from drivers that many support my idea if I can get something affordable and that it can be fixed well in the auto. 

Then she asked why I also don't do something for manual rickshaw drivers on which I told her that I'm first targeting one segment and that after that I'll work on manual rickshaw drivers to get them affordable footwear and to see if anything can be done to the rickshaws to make them better like how indoor bikes come in several qualities and that some things in them are critical for us to avoid short-term to long-term injury. Moreover, she and I had also done the spinning class today during which she had said to our trainer that I'm concerned for everyone when I had asked our trainer on her child! Also, a manual rickshaw driver nearby was attentively listening to me as she pointed to me which was nice and that I wish that I can also do much for them.

People keep blaming others including the government and the administration. I don't want to sound like an Indian street dog barking like when I keep clearing my throat due to pollution. I'm doing what I can and that not blaming others or asking for change in government or administration but trying my best to bring change in our society and environment by directly contributing to them. I think that we can contribute much even by making small changes at large scale. If you like then you're welcome to contribute with me to our world and that I'm trying to make www.healthfitnessindia.com a platform to connect, share and collaborate for the same. Best! Shakti
