Most Dangerous Ads : By children, for children


Flipkart ads

Any Ad that exploit children is sick and eunuch effort to sell products. TATA Sky’s new Ad series is such example. It is instigating children against parents (मम्मी कहतीहै टीवी मत देखो…see how fool my mom is)

What TV can teach, you can easily demonstrate. Benefit of you replacing TV is: You interact with child for more time. More time your spend with your kid, better brain growth happens. This is biological truth. If you do not agree with this, all the best 🙂.

In some homes, Kids love TV more than spending time with parents. I can sense the reason behind it: Parents are disinterested spending time with kids and are more interested in their own entertainment. Before this repeat with your family, take care. If you see loss of affection for you from kids, you have difficult old age 🙂 😉. And you deserve difficult old age! 😛


Parenting Ignorance : Fruits and Fruit Juice



Nothing worse than buying food labelled as ‘Healthy food’ by continuous bombardment of advertisements  during prime TV time. It is parental laziness who present processed fruit juice to kids as healthy food.

You are not helping your child bus killing his/her future! Read what American Association of pediatrics suggest about fruit juice intake in kids.

We have warned readers 5 years back about this habit:

Our habits reflects our collective intelligences as a society, as a family and as an individual.

Since cancer-colas are continuously losing their popularity in last decade, new trend is emerging in our society and that is to drink juice. In juice, more artificial juice than a natural one.

Good that youth is ignoring colas but it is not yet best choice as alternative.

What do we lose when you drink juice and not eat fruits?

Fiber. The high fiber content of a whole orange helps the body properly process the high fructose content of the juice. The fiber actually blocks some of the sugar from being absorbed, which makes the orange more nutritious for the amount of calories it contains. The fiber also makes a whole orange much more filling than the juice (it’s far easier to consume several glasses of high sugar orange juice than several whole oranges). If you eat a whole orange you’ll also be more satisfied and less hungry for calorie-dense, nutritionally-deficient food later on.

In addition to the benefits of the extra fiber in the pulp, a whole orange contains numerous health promoting micro-nutrients that aren’t found in the juice alone. One of the most researched is a flavanoid called hesperidin, which is concentrated in the pulp and inside of the peel. Hesperidin shows promise as an anti-inflammatory, in lowering blood pressure, and in promoting healthy cholesterol. One animal study also found that a diet rich in orange pulp increased bone density!

Another mindless habit?

Fruits are already having less nutrients due to chemical farming, chemical processing. Why do you want to make them more deprived of benefits by drinking juice?

Artificial juice – NEVER EVER. Natural Juice – only to avoid dehydration during summers.

Always prefer fruits over juice.

We also wrote extra sugar havoc :

Fruit juices and ice creams during all illnesses – this is not always desired.

This may increase chances of infections.

Hint: High intake sugar vs weak digestive fire

No genuine ayurvedic doctor prescribes it. Superficial allopathy doctors do. And self-proclaimed doctor relatives of patient do it always as for them, fruits mean vitamin C 😉 And ice-cream is medicine for acidity

Fruit Juice in Infants, Children, and Adolescents: Current Recommendations

Historically, fruit juice was recommended by pediatricians as a source of vitamin C and as an extra source of water for healthy infants and young children as their diets expanded to include solid foods with higher renal solute load. It was also sometimes recommended for children with constipation. Fruit juice is marketed as a healthy, natural source of vitamins and, in some instances, calcium. Because juice tastes good, children readily accept it. Although juice consumption has some benefits, it also has potential detrimental effects. High sugar content in juice contributes to increased calorie consumption and the risk of dental caries. In addition, the lack of protein and fiber in juice can predispose to inappropriate weight gain (too much or too little). Pediatricians need to be knowledgeable about juice to inform parents and patients on its appropriate uses.


  1. Fruit juice offers no nutritional benefits for infants younger than 1 year.

  2. Fruit juice offers no nutritional benefits over whole fruit for infants and children and has no essential role in healthy, balanced diets of children.

  3. One hundred percent fresh or reconstituted fruit juice can be a healthy part of the diet of children older than 1 year when consumed as part of a well-balanced diet. Fruit drinks, however, are not nutritionally equivalent to fruit juice.

  4. Juice is not appropriate in the treatment of dehydration or the management of diarrhea.

  5. Excessive juice consumption may be associated with malnutrition (overnutrition and undernutrition).

  6. Excessive juice consumption is associated with diarrhea, flatulence, abdominal distention, and tooth decay.

  7. Unpasteurized juice products may contain pathogens that can cause serious illnesses and should be given to children cautiously, if at all.

  8. A variety of fruit juices, provided in appropriate amounts for a child’s age, are not likely to cause any significant clinical symptoms.

  9. Calcium-fortified juices provide a bioavailable source of calcium and often vitamin D but lack other nutrients present in human milk, infant formula, or cow milk.

Parenting Alert : Bollywood Memes and Kids


First of all, let us understand, what is meme?


Bollywood is business. They want to not only earn by movie profit but also derail the societal setup as per their investors vested interests.

We must get rid of them from our lives. There are many active entertainment ways possible where our involvement is 100%. Unlike passive movies.


Our life is now so stressful (We only made it stressful!) that we consume anything and everything as entertainment!


We don’t even care if our kids are watching them too or not!



What is trivial adult comedy for you, may not be true for kids. For them, it is new learning that is morally ok as parents enjoy in their company and give tacit approval of such social events/setups.

So in context of Bollywood’s present songs and stories or TV soaps, dancing car of PK, Vodka song of honey singh and mistake song of Jagga Jasoos – all ok for kids as parents give indirect approval by enjoying it! 🙂

Don’t complain 10 years later. Forewarned as your well-wisher. Take care. Think 100 times before you watch movies or TV soaps with kids.

Choose Role Model Carefully: Misleading youth

Look at this ad : काटेगी क्या?
And then don’t complain if a teen in neighborhood ogle at middle age female of family. This is what we present to our kids in name of entertainment and rolemodels!
Bollywood actors have no sublime inclination for anything. When this idiot sold MNC product in name of Ayurveda, many of my friends forwarded it to me. Look, he is saying same what you are saying!
It was biggest insult I felt in life. How dare you compare paid actor with me? We don’t need paid actor to help us understand Ayurveda!!
Never consider reel life actors as role model or else you will fall in the trap. Trap where you will start liking vices too! Esp teens. They still don’t understand right vs wrong. They follow role model.
Now this so called Nationalist is selling pervertness and women obsjectification. Take that!
Instead of inspiring youth to work on internal bodily fire which when not working, body stinks, this demon is selling deo!
One segment of FMCG products is flourishing. Fragrance segment. To hide foul body smell.
If our agni is robust and healthy it brings fragrance to life. When agni is imbalanced, the opposite occurs.When a person has a foul smell or bad breath, that indicates impaired agni. Such a person may use perfume, but there is a perfume in your body, a fragrance of the body, which is agni.
Solution is to improve bodily fire. Stabilize it. Avoid events that can destabilize bodily fire.

Feeding Formula : Infant’s slow poison


What is poison for you, may not be true for me.

Something is poison when it is given in overdose against the capacity of digestive fire to digest it. Bodily fire to assimilate it with body. Or when it is प्राणविहीन e.g. feeding formula, urea, processed food etc.

Fertilizers for crops and feeding formula for infants – both are poison as they are burden for digestive fire.

Society that promotes chemical fertilizers for crops and feeding formula for kids, is sick and insane society. We are . Our govt is! (Neem coated urea! 🙂 )



Digested formula but not digested fresh human milk causes death of intestinal cells in vitro: implications for necrotizing enterocolitis

Premature infants fed formula are more likely to develop necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) than those who are breastfed, but the mechanisms of intestinal necrosis in NEC and protection by breast milk are unknown. We hypothesized that after lipase digestion, formula, but not fresh breast milk, contains levels of unbound free fatty acids (FFAs) that are cytotoxic to intestinal cells.

Lipase digestion of formula, but not milk, caused significant death of neutrophils (ranging from 47 to 99% with formulas vs. 6% with milk) with similar results in endothelial and epithelial cells. FFAs were significantly elevated in digested formula vs. milk and death from formula was significantly decreased with lipase inhibitor pretreatment, or treatments to bind FFAs. Protease digestion significantly increased FFA binding capacity of formula and milk but only enough to decrease cytotoxicity from milk.

Early Childhood Environment Determines Adult testosterone levels


I have coined the word ‘Yashoda-care’ for the treatment every child desire in first 5 years of life. And when they miss it, we can’t really predict good adulthood. One or another way, you will see disorder in their life.

Your Child Demands Yashoda Care : Neuroscience of parenting

लालयेत् पंच वर्षाणि दश वर्षाणि ताडयेत्।
प्राप्ते तु षोडशे वर्षे पुत्रे मित्रवदाचरेत्।।

अर्थात- पाँच वर्ष की अवस्था तक पुत्र को लाड़ करना चाहिए, दस वर्ष की अवस्था तक (उसी की भलाई के लिए) उसे ताड़ना देना चाहिए और उसके सोलह वर्ष की अवस्था प्राप्त कर लेने पर उससे मित्रवत व्यवहार करना चाहिए।

Hormones represent पित्त / अग्नि in body. During childhood, body’s nature is of type क़फ. But when the environment is chaotic, more and more raw fire will be consumed (As hormonal transformation is not demanded now!).

Although, what this study says is not strong correlation but it certainly gives potent hint. First 5 years, child must feel like a womb. It is only human childhood where kid takes years to acquire basic living skills. Still in womb, learning. During this time, if the environment is chaotic, impact will be long lasting. It is not just physical environment but also mental environment. All plays role.

At  the same time, it is also important to alter parenting style once child crosses 5 years of age! Not only that, one must focus on gender too! Respect biological differences. Don’t live under false delusion of equality!

When all of this is missed, expect hormonal imbalance. And then we blame random things on the sky for mental and physical abrupt disorders popped up in adult life.

Read this study and it will give you potent hints for certain questions

  1. Why yashoda-care for first 5-7 years?
  2. Why Gurukul (Learning by self-discipline and hardship) after age 8
  3. Why girls and boys should receive different education during their hormonal transformation age (teen age)
  4. Why not engage child in sports/martial art too early in life (ideal after 7-8 years)
  5. Why not engage child in any competition too early in life (like reality shows)

Tame the bodily fire during childhood so that the child emerge as firehouse in adulthood.

Consume the bodily fire during childhood so that child turns out to be a feeble minded weak body!


Men’s testosterone levels largely determined by childhood environment

Men’s testosterone levels are largely determined by their environment during childhood, according to new research.

The Durham University-led study suggests that men who grow up in more challenging conditions where there are lots of infectious diseases, for example, are likely to have lower testosterone levels in later life than those who spend their childhood in healthier environments.

Prostate cancer risk 

The study, published in Nature Ecology and Evolution, challenges the theory that testosterone levels are controlled by genetics or race.

As high testosterone levels potentially lead to an increased risk of prostate enlargement and cancer, the researchers suggest that any screening for risk profiles may need to take a man’s childhood environment into account.

The study found that Bangladeshi men who grew up and lived as adults in the UK had significantly higher levels of testosterone compared to relatively well-off men who grew up and lived in Bangladesh as adults. Bangladeshis in Britain also reached puberty at a younger age and were taller than men who lived in Bangladesh throughout their childhood.

Disease exposure

The researchers say the differences are linked to energy investment as it may only be possible to have high testosterone levels if there are not many other demands placed on the body such as fighting off infections. In environments where people are more exposed to disease or poor nutrition, developing males direct energy towards survival at the cost of testosterone.

The researchers collected data from 359 men on height, weight, age of puberty and other health information along with saliva samples to examine their testosterone levels. They compared the following groups: men born and still resident in Bangladesh; Bangladeshi men who moved to the UK (London) as children; Bangladeshi men who moved to the UK as adults; second-generation, UK-born men whose parents were Bangladeshi migrants; and UK-born ethnic Europeans.

Childhood environment

Lead author of the study, Dr Kesson Magid from Durham University’s Department of Anthropology (UK), said: “A man’s absolute levels of testosterone are unlikely to relate to their ethnicity or where they live as adults but instead reflect their surroundings when they were children.”

Men with higher levels of testosterone are at greater risk of potentially adverse effects of this hormone on health and ageing. Very high levels can mean increased muscle mass, increased risk of prostate diseases and have been linked to higher aggression. Very low testosterone levels in men can include lack of energy, loss of libido and erectile dysfunction. The testosterone levels of the men in the study were, however, all in a range that would unlikely have an impact on their fertility.

Health implications

Co-author Professor Gillian Bentley from Durham University, commented: “Very high and very low testosterone levels can have implications for men’s health and it could be important to know more about men’s childhood circumstances to build a fuller picture of their risk factors for certain conditions or diseases.”

Aspects of male reproductive function remain changeable into adolescence, up to the age of 19 and are more flexible in early rather than late childhood, according to the research. However, the study suggests that, in adulthood, men’s testosterone levels are no longer heavily influenced by their surroundings.

Food Marketing to Children and Youth: Ultimate Profit Machine


Food Marketing to Children and Youth:


Creating an environment in which children grow up healthy should be a high priority for the nation. Sadly, neither parents nor govt is having clue! Forget about schools as they are no more sacred places.

Children’s dietary and related health patterns are shaped by the interplay of many factors—their biologic affinities, their culture and values, their economic status, their physical and social environments, and their commercial media environments—all of which, apart from their genetic predispositions, have undergone significant transformations during the past three decades. Among these environments, none have more rapidly assumed central socializing roles among children and youth than the media.

But if you share this with parents, they respond: Oh, you are thinking too much! Its ok if they become consumers!


Food Marketing to Children and Youth

Creating an environment in which children and youth can grow up healthy should be a very high priority for the nation. Yet the prevailing pattern of food and beverage marketing to children in America represents, at best, a missed opportunity, and, at worst, a direct threat to the health of the next generation. Dietary patterns that begin in childhood give shape to the health profiles of Americans at all ages. Because these patterns reflect the intersecting influences of our cultural, social, and economic environments, ensuring that these environments support good health is a fundamental responsibility, requiring leadership and action from all sectors.

The dramatic rise in the number of U.S. children and youth who are obese, have type 2 diabetes, and are at increased risk for developing obesity and related chronic diseases in adulthood, is a matter of national concern. Obesity among children and youth has more than tripled over the past four decades—from about 5 percent in 6- to 19-year-olds in the 1960s to 16 percent in 1999–2002. More than 9 million U.S. children and youth are obese and another 15 percent are at risk for becoming obese. The prevalence of type 2 diabetes among children and youth—previously known as “adult-onset” diabetes—has more than doubled in the past decade.

As a society, we have moved well beyond the era when our dietary focus was on ensuring caloric sufficiency to meet basic metabolic needs. We are now confronted with nutritional inadequacy of a different sort. Diets that are high in calories and other constituents such as saturated fats, and low in certain nutrients are putting our children and youth at risk for diseases later in life, such as heart disease, stroke, circulatory problems,some cancers, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Parents, communities, the government, public health sector, health care systems, and private enterprise all face significant challenges to create an environment for our children and youth that turns the course and enhances their prospects for healthy lives.

Lack of Ghee(Fatty acids), Teenage and Anxiety disorder in Adult age



You ignore your teen boy/girl’s diet now, deprive them of vital omega fatty acids during brain growth period and you gift them anxiety and entire gamut of neurological disorders in adult life!!

And don’t feel sad for increasing cases of suicide! We as a society failed our future generation!

The structure and function of the brain continue to change throughout adolescence, at the same time that teenagers gain increasing independence and begin to make their own food choices. Since high-calorie, low-quality diets tend to be more affordable than healthy ones, teenagers may opt for foods that lack key nutrients important for brain health such as omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs), which cannot be produced by the human body and must be obtained from foods such as Ghee, fish and vegetables.


Amplification of mGlu5-endocannabinoid signaling rescues behavioral and synaptic deficits in a mouse model of adolescent and adult dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids imbalance

Energy-dense, yet nutritionally-poor food is a high-risk factor for mental health disorders. This is of particular concern during adolescence, a period often associated with increased consumption of low nutritional content food and higher prevalence of mental health disorders. Indeed, there is an urgent need to understand the mechanisms linking unhealthy diet and mental disorders. Deficiency in n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFAs) is a hallmark of poor nutrition and mood disorders. Here, we developed a mouse model of n-3 PUFAs deficiency lasting from adolescence into adulthood. Starting nutritional deficits in dietary n-3 PUFAs during adolescence decreased n-3 PUFAs in both medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and nucleus accumbens, increased anxiety-like behavior and decreased cognitive function in adulthood. Importantly, we discovered that endocannabinoid/mGlu5-mediated long-term depression in the mPFC and accumbens was abolished in adult n-3-deficient mice. Additionally, mPFC NMDAR-dependent long-term potentiation was also lacking in the n-3-deficient group. Pharmacological enhancement of the mGlu5/eCB signaling complex, by positive allosteric modulation of mGlu5 or inhibition of endocannabinoid 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG) degradation, fully restored synaptic plasticity and normalized emotional and cognitive behaviors in malnourished adult mice. Our data support a model where nutrition is a key environmental factor influencing the working synaptic range into adulthood, long after the end of the perinatal period. These findings have important implications for the identification of nutritional risk factors for disease and design of new treatments for the behavioral deficits associated with nutritional n-3 PUFAs’ deficiency.

Drone Parenting (Modern Psychology) vs (Sutra) Chanakya’s Child Psychology



Who decides what level documentation one should do?

अल्पाक्षरमसंदिग्धं सारवद्विश्वतो मुखम् ।
अस्तोभमनवद्यं च सूत्रं सूत्रविदो विदुः ॥

अल्पाक्षरता, असंदिग्धता, साररुप, सामान्य सिद्धांत, निरर्थक शब्द का अभाव, और दोषरहितत्व – ये छे ‘सूत्र’ के लक्षण कहे गये हैं ।

We believe in सूत्र level of documentation. If I really want my student to आत्मसात the subject, I will set him free by giving सूत्र | The real वीर will walk on the guided path (सूत्र) and derive his/her own conclusions based on स्थल, देश, काल!

so for parenting, very powerful sutra is given.

लालयेत् पंच वर्षाणि दश वर्षाणि ताडयेत्।
प्राप्ते तु षोडशे वर्षे पुत्रे मित्रवदाचरेत्।।

अर्थात- पाँच वर्ष की अवस्था तक पुत्र को लाड़ करना चाहिए, दस वर्ष की अवस्था तक (उसी की भलाई के लिए) उसे ताड़ना देना चाहिए और उसके सोलह वर्ष की अवस्था प्राप्त कर लेने पर उससे मित्रवत व्यवहार करना चाहिए।

We don’t care about the cultural legacy given as free gift and then run after half-baked western psychology. Take for example this concept of helicopter parenting!

It is not that easy to make 2 years set free. And at the same time, it is foolish to continuously observe 12 years old like a drone!


Helicopter Parenting May Negatively Affect Children’s Emotional Well-Being, Behavior

It’s natural for parents to do whatever they can to keep their children safe and healthy, but children need space to learn and grow on their own, without Mom or Dad hovering over them, according to new research published by the American Psychological Association. The study, published in the journal Developmental Psychology®, found that overcontrolling parenting can negatively affect a child’s ability to manage his or her emotions and behavior.

“Our research showed that children with helicopter parents may be less able to deal with the challenging demands of growing up, especially with navigating the complex school environment,” said Nicole B. Perry, PhD, from the University of Minnesota, and lead author of the study. “Children who cannot regulate their emotions and behavior effectively are more likely to act out in the classroom, to have a harder time making friends and to struggle in school.”

Gadget Meal – New style of parenting



If you have formed this habit of forcing kid to demand screen while eating, STOP it now! Find alternative. This is example of careless and lazy parenting.

1) Kids already have short attention spans. Having TV along with meal further divides it. Lesser focus on meal -> Indigestion
2) Kids learn unwanted human habits from advertisements. You shape their consumer habit.
3) They pick up unnecessary products targeted to them
4) Visuals limit imagination instead enhancing it.

Stop it. If at all needed, you sing a song or enact a scene! Don’t take shortcuts and ruin your kid’s future.
