Gratitude — the great attitude Part 2

Mira Prabhu

Can practising gratitude transform one overnight into a serene being? No, but a consistent and sincere readiness to look on the bright side most certainly shrinks fears, clears vision and allows one to move forward with increasing confidence and joy.

Airway mucus hyper-secretion and its management through exercise interventions

Manikonda Prakash Rao

Conquering negative attitudes

In mucus-related respiratory health problems, the following changes take place in the airways: inflammation, hyper-secretion of mucus and bronchospasm. Together, these factors cause breathlessness. The author has devised some exercises which are therapeutic tools. They help to cleanse the adhesive mucus from the primary sites of colonisation of pathogens along the mouth, nose, pharynx, sinuses and bronchial airways. They reduce C-reactive protein resulting in decreased inflammation and strengthen the remodelled airways, resetting the biological ageing process. Read more...


Evolution Next — III

Dr. Alok Pandey


Is evolution a mechanical senseless unfolding or is there a mysterious ‘Something' at the root of it that is unfolding Itself through evolution?

But those destined or ready for the next evolutionary adventure find these boundaries split up and a wide horizon opening, teeming with new and old possibilities, with all its dangers and delight. For when the magic circle unfastens the doors we may either slide to the previous level or else go up the ladder. This is the evolutionary risk we face at the moment. Read more...

Notes on counselling

Dealing with fear in children — personal notes

Dr. Soumitra Basu


Quite often mothers complain to me about the fears and feelings of insecurity in their children. If the child is very young and there is no obvious family discord, the first thing that I ask is whether the child sleeps at night with the night-lamp on. In most cases the answer is yes. The child has not learnt to enjoy darkness, not been allowed to experience darkness. Has he not played that game of blind man’s buff? Inadvertently, the mother thinks the night-lamp will allay the child’s fear, but actually it increases the insecurity.. Read more...
