Who really forced British to quit?

1

Our Brave forefathers in Naval Services, inspired by Subhash Chandra Bose INA’s heroic tryst with destiny, wrote with their blood a new chapter in the history of our freedom struggle. NO THING CAN WIPE OUT THE MEMORY OF those five historic days which shook the very foundations of imperial rule in India.

And you were taught that Mr. Gandhi & his team gave you freedom! Re-read real history and know your real HEROES!

4) INDIAN NAVY REVOLTED AGAINST BRITAIN IN 1946 AND FORCED IT TO GIVE FREEDOM TO INDIA IN 1947-

http://oldphotosbombay.blogspot.in/2008/07/indian-naval-mutiny-of-1946-against.html

Following India’s Independence in 1947, generations of Indians have been taught that the real heroes of the Freedom Movement were Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, with grudging respect paid to Sardar Patel. Subhas Bose is all but forgotten. Even worse, he is the victim of a propaganda campaign by the Nehru Government and its successors that runs along the following lines: (i) Subhas Bose was an ineffective dreamer who played an insignificant part in the Freedom Struggle; and (ii) anyone questioning the official ‘truth’, including the account of his death, is some kind of a crackpot. The following passage by Surjit Mansingh in the Historical Dictionary of India illustrates both:

“Many Indians, especially in Bengal and Maharashtra, refused to believe [in his death in an air crash]…, perhaps because of a deep seated need to believe in an immortal hero, a saintly warrior king, even a Kalki or a future incarnation of Vishnu who would return to the nation when needed.” And later, writing about Subhas Bose himself: “…the Bose cult has not died despite his lack of a broad political base or solid political achievement when alive.”

So, according to Mansingh, who incidentally is a JNU professor and a former fellow at the Nehru Museum and Library, Subhas Bose is nothing but a cult figure who did little when he was alive. While this happens to be the ‘official’ (read Congress-Communist) line, not many historians today are prepared to buy it. Probably the most distinguished historian to highlight Bose’s real contribution was the late R.C. Majumdar. In his monumental, three-volume History of the Freedom Movement in India (which the Congress-led by Maulana Azad tried to suppress), Majumdar provided the following extraordinary information:

“It seldom falls to the lot of a historian to have his views, differing radically from those generally accepted without demur, confirmed by such an unimpeachable authority. As far back as 1948 I wrote in an article that the contribution made by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose towards the achievement of freedom in 1947 was no less, and perhaps, far more important than that of Mahatma Gandhi…” The ‘unimpeachable authority’ he cited happens to be Clement Attlee, the Prime Minister of Britain at the time of India’s Independence. As this is of fundamental importance, and Majumdar’s conclusion so greatly at variance with conventional history, it is worth placing it on record. (See Volume III, pp. 609-10). When B.P. Chakravarti was acting as Governor of West Bengal, Lord Attlee visited India and stayed as his guest for three days at the Raj Bhavan. Chakravarti asked Attlee about the real grounds for granting Independence to India. Specifically, his question was, when the Quit India movement lay in ruins years before 1947, what was the need for the British to leave in such a hurry. Attlee’s response is most illuminating and important for history. Here is the Governor’s account of what Attlee told him:

“In reply Attlee cited several reasons, the most important were the activities of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose which weakened the very foundation of the attachment of the Indian land and naval forces to the British Government. Towards the end, I asked Lord Attlee about the extent to which the British decision to quit India was influenced by Gandhi’s activities. On hearing this question Attlee’s lips widened in a smile of disdain and he uttered, slowly, putting emphasis on each single letter-”mi-ni-mal”.”
“The Government of India had hoped, by prosecuting members of the INA, to reinforce the morale of the Indian army. It succeeded only in creating unease, in making the soldiers feel slightly ashamed that they themselves had supported the British. If Bose and his men had been on the right side-and all India now confirmed that they were-then Indians in the Indian army must have been on the wrong side. It slowly dawned upon the Government of India that the backbone of the British rule, the Indian army, might now no longer be trustworthy. The ghost of Subhas Bose, like Hamlet’s father, walked the battlements of the Red Fort (where the INA soldiers trial was going on), and his suddenly amplified figure overawed the conference that was to lead to independence.[1]”

भारत राष्ट्र – एक अमर संकल्पना

When we think of the Bharatiya Nationhood, it at once appears to be unique and distinctive in its essence and form from the concepts of other peoples on the globe. All other nations are more like flies on the wheel of Time or the cycle of ‘life and death’ but not Bharat.

भारत - महाभारत
भारत – महाभारत

 

All nations’ of the world have all been, very much like human beings subject to the law of birth, life and death. No nation is known so far to have escaped this law of nature except one and that is Bharat. In spite of ceaseless efforts to discover the secret, the birth and the beginning of Bharat have defied all the great research scholars. Cast a glance around and ask if there is in existence any nation elder or older than Bharat.

 

Bharat is the oldest nation born and yet alive on the surface of this globe. A large number of younger nations appeared on the horizon, shone for a while like meteors and disappeared for ever in the oblivion. The records of their civilisations are now the histories of short-lived nations.

 

  • Where is that Greece of the omniscient Aristotle, and his worthy disciple Plato who gave science and philosophy to Europe?
  • What happened to the Greek nation whose two proud heroes Philip and Alexander claimed to have conquered the world declaring impudently that they only were born to rule and the rest of humanity to serve them as slaves?
  • What is the fate of that Rome of Caesar which once infused self-confidence in Europe and conferred on it the famous laws?
  • Where are also those other Christian nations of old times which under the plea of saving the humanity and in the name of non-violence ran rivers of human blood on earth?

 

The truth is all those have been swept off; and now purely materialistic nations nurtured on the principles of Capitalism and Communism have arisen in places of the old ones, The Russia of Zar is no more. It has been metamorphosed into a completely new State. There is China our neighbour. She has lived almost as long as ourselves. But the China of old was Buddhist till yesterday. The spirit of the Buddhist China was a gift of Bharat. Having accepted Communism as her ideology, the Chinese Nation has undergone a total conversion. It will have to be admitted without any reservation that as much a new nation has sprung up in China as the old one has been buried.

 

It is on this account and in this sense we affirm that all the old nations of the world have disappeared from the surface of the earth. Only Bharat has survived defying death or change.

 

It may be asked what is the meaning of births and deaths, the rise and fall of nations? For in cases of all those nations which have disappeared and died, are not the lands, the seas, the people still existing?

 

Does not the humanity inhabiting those various> territories on earth inherit the blood of their forefathers? Why and how can it then be said that a nation is dead or that a new one is born? An individual has his individuality. A nation has its national spirit and character. It is called its ‘अस्मिता’, the essence or the spirit. It is the particular characteristics which distinguish one thing from the other and their consciousness that is called the ‘अस्मिता’ the soul of a thing. ‘अस्मिता’ is a quality of only a sentient being which has consciousness and knowledge. The nature of the soul and spirit of one nation which distinguishes it from other nations is then the ‘अस्मिता’, as the essence of its nationhood. There must be a common current running in every individual of the national society. It is in the existence, affirmation and manifestation of this ‘अस्मिता’, that a people rise to full nationhood.

 

It is only the community of people throbbing with the sense, sentiments and the spirit of oneness which deserves to be called a nation.  When such a community or the people living in a distinct piece of land abandons their distinguishing consciousness of the spirit of unity and oneness, ‘अस्मिता’, then indeed the nation is said to have committed its suicide. It soon dies and disappears.

 

After such a forsaking of the spirit, when the people adopt new forms and formulas of life then the  nation is said to have been converted or changed. It may be that such a transformation of a nation may lend it a newer spirit and splendor a while. Such a nation may accelerate its progress. But that does not refute the fact that the old is dead. When it is said that the European nations from the days of the Greek history to the Zardorn have died, our meaning is clear. It is in this sense that we claim Bharat which had to face many a death-struggles, has survived with its spirit and soul unchanged.

 

The soul and spirit of the Bharatiya people today are exactly what they have been through thousands of years past (However small in number, spirit is alive!). It is in the same unbroken spirit and thought that the people of Bharat are continuing their course of life. For instance, the regard and sentiments which the ‘Cow’ inspired in the people of Bharat in the days of Atharva Veda, and then in the days of Mahabharat, milleniums of years back, persist to this day in this middle of the 21st century. If the President is to be considered as the true representative of the people of a nation, then it is apparent that the President of Bharat, who carries in his heart the same high regard and reverence for the sacredness of the ‘Cow’, as, the Rishis of the old times or the kings and common people of the Mahabharat days, represents the sentiments of the people. It is an indication that the nation is unchanged.(If he has no reverence for Cow and promoting slaughter, throw him out of office!)

 

Rama and Krishna worshipped the river Ganga. That very sentiment persists in the Hindu society of the present times. In other nations the relics of history become show pieces in their museums. But in India today, the whole society carries in its thoughts and actions all those sentiments and feelings with which the ancient forefathers were inspired thousands of years back. There is nothing like a relic or a forsaken idea in India. Even narrow minds and parochial personalities who get themselves encased in their territorial  or provincial prides and prejudices have unreservedly admitted that the spirit of Bharatiya nationhood has persisted since the prehistoric ages right up to the present times in an unchanged unbroken form and current. This persistence of the essence of Bharatiya nationhood which is a miracle according to some is a patent fact. It is for this reason that we consider our past to be worthy of becoming a sure and unshakable foundation for the future. It is the firm conviction of our gifted prophets that the Providence has bequeathed this national heritage to the people of Bharat for the saving of humanity.

 

Imbued with this belief an individual born in this land identifies himself with every particle on the surface of the earth. It is this spiritual identification with the Universe, a psychic consciousness of oneness that is the essence of our nationhood. The spirit which the word ‘Arya’ inspired the Aryas of the Vedic age to carry the message, and the mission of ‘Aryanising the humanity’ (civilising the universe), also continues to enthuse our great thinkers and heroes of today.

 

–    बालशाश्त्री हरदास (Savarkar’s associate)

 

अस्मिता is profound Sanskrit word which cannot be translated to any other language. When word ‘अस्मिता’ is led by word ‘राष्ट्रिय’, it becomes sparkling source of living energy. It is a common current running in every individual of Nation society. It conveys that society has faith in land, pride for their legacy and confidence to progress ahead with very same cultural base. It is proof of immortal  Nation ‘भारत’.

 

If you don’t have ‘राष्ट्रीय अस्मिता’, you probably cannot connect yourself with I-ness of Nation. You fail to associate your identity with National identity. Bunch of individuals, without ‘राष्ट्रीय अस्मिता’, is not Nation.

 

Nurture राष्ट्रीय अस्मिता, in you, in your family, in your society, in your friends, in your colleague. Demonstrate. Exhibit your own example.

 

To Nurture राष्ट्रीय अस्मिता, study and put Vedic Culture in action, in your life. Demonstrate!

 

May Bharat live forever. May we thrive hard to expect & emerge return of super-heroes. May we live like micro-version of these super-heroes who kept भारतीय अस्मिता alive since time immemorial.

 

Return of तिलक, बाल गंगाधर तिलक.

Return of स्वामी, स्वामी रामदास.

Return of राम, परशुराम.

Return of वीर, वीर शिवाजी.

Return of गुरु, गुरु नानक.

Turmeric has many benefits. One of them is that it can work as anti-depression medicine. Robin Williams could have avoided suicide if he was given Turmeric as medicine. Cancer is a cell level depression and identity crisis. Turmeric is emerging as best alternative medicine for cancer treatment.

Curcumin oil in Turmeric can do wonder. What you get from market is devoid of curcumin. It is first extracted and then powder is packaged for selling. So turmeric you use in kitchen may not work as per expectations. For curcumin rich turmeric, you will have to sacrifice your leisure time, travel across villages, meet farmers and find best source. I can help.

It is also not good idea to consume extracted curcumin (as modern pharma is planning to sell soon ) alone as magic is in whole turmeric and not in isolated curcumin.

So when you get time from your delusion that modern science is superior, start following your local food habits and avail benefits of healthy living.

Efficacy and Safety of Curcumin in Major Depressive Disorder: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Curcumin, an active ingredient of Curcuma longa Linn (Zingiberaceae), has shown potential antidepressant-like activity in animal studies. The objectives of this trial were to compare the efficacy and safety of curcumin with fluoxetine in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD). Herein, 60 patients diagnosed with MDD were randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio for six weeks observer-masked treatment with fluoxetine (20 mg) and curcumin (1000 mg) individually or their combination. The primary efficacy variable was response rates according to Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, 17-item version (HAM-D17). The secondary efficacy variable was the mean change in HAM-D17 score after six weeks. We observed that curcumin was well tolerated by all the patients. The proportion of responders as measured by the HAM-D17 scale was higher in the combination group (77.8%) than in the fluoxetine (64.7%) and the curcumin (62.5%) groups; however, these data were not statistically significant (P = 0.58). Interestingly, the mean change in HAM-D17 score at the end of six weeks was comparable in all three groups (P = 0.77). This study provides first clinical evidence that curcumin may be used as an effective and safe modality for treatment in patients with MDD without concurrent suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders.

Children: Language learning and social activities

Parents must not use shortcuts. Stories on tablets, cartoons on TV are not useful. If you want your kid to learn and excel in multiple languages, let there be more opportunities for social interactions. Your babies demand your time. Human interactions. Even if they cannot speak full words and sentences, speak with them! Communicate! Gestures, expressions and surprises! Tablet and TV cannot give gestures and expressions!

“We found that the degree to which infants visually tracked the tutors and the toys they held was linked to brain measures of infant learning, showing that social behaviors give helpful information to babies in a complex natural language learning situation,” Kuhl said.

“Our findings show that young babies’ social engagement contributes to their own language learning – they’re not just passive listeners of language,” Brooks said. “They’re paying attention, and showing parents they’re ready to learn when they’re looking back and forth. That’s when the most learning happens.”

This is interesting study. This supports my hypothesis that only scientific medicine we have is Ayurvedic.
 
It is only in Ayurveda, medicine is given based on individual prakriti, keeping in mind birth prakriti, season and age.
 
On the other hand, modern medicine has no such standard except change in dosage based on weight and age.
 
Microbial flora in our body changes with season, age and innate prakriti. Hence, one medicine for all will never work.

Intestinal flora effects drug response

KUMAMOTO UNIVERSITY

Intestinal flora has multiple influences on human health, but researchers have revealed that it is also likely to have an effect on the body’s response to drugs. Recent research from Kumamoto University in Japan strongly suggests that changes in the intestinal flora, caused by antibacterial and antibiotic drugs or individual differences between people, may have an effect on a person’s response to drugs including side effects. The research focused on the changes in proteins due to the condition of intestinal flora that affect the response to drugs in the liver and kidneys.

Antibacterial and antibiotic drugs are often prescribed for the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections and are often taken with therapeutic drugs to prevent recurrence of infection during treatment. Unfortunately, the drugs affect not only harmful bacteria, but also the naturally occurring bacteria within the intestine. To determine the effects of this influence on drug efficacy, Kumamoto University researchers investigated protein changes in the liver and kidney. Changes in these proteins have a great influence on drug efficacy and side effects since they are responsible for the metabolism and transport of many drugs, and are also affected by changes in the intestinal flora.

Business of Cancer Screening

It is height of fear vending by modern medical technology to detect disease that now normal biological events are termed as disease symptoms.

PSA test
PSA test

For example prostate cancer (PSA screening or prostate-specific antigen screening) prescribed by doctors as yearly check up for men above age 50. It is normal that with growing age, prostate size increases gradually. I bet, 90% aged men diagnosed for early prostate cancer symptoms were having normal conditions. But due to modern medical technological arrogance, they were terms as cancerous and hence operated.

Unnecessary surgical stress. Unnecessary hospital stress. Unnecessary antibiotic attack. Financial stress. Family under stress. Major havoc for life without any reason. Just for the sake of sheer arrogance of technological feet.

USA is waking up and correcting mistakes. Will Indian doctor learn? Genuine doctors will. Business minded won’t. You take care 🙂

Cancer is not a disease, but a biological event

Cancer Cells
Cancer Cells

[Based on reading late Dr M L Kothari’s cancer research]

Cancer is not a disease, but a biological event programmed by cells. The ticks of this event were started way back in past before symptoms are surfaced. The inception of cancer-starts as a very small, silent event that tardily marches over several years to the stage of being detected.

This initial event programmed by cell is due to several reasons. Some of them physiological and some psychological. Our body cells are themselves individual unique organisms with individual identity. They forget own identity to support larger existence i.e. your body. So they selflessly work day and night, perform own duty towards Nation (your body). It is Nation’s (body or “I” that govern body) reciprocal duty to provide stress-free life to each cell. Mentally stress-free life for cell is possible when “I” do not live life under any mental stress. Physically stress-free life for each cell is possible when “I” eat nutrient-rich, less-toxic or non-toxic food which can provide continuous support to each cell’s biological need. “I” also need to take care of vital Prana (force that keep the communication between “I” and each cell proper. Prana can be maintained by Prayer, meditation, exercise.

Now since our modern life expect us to live with stressful life, junk food devoid of nutrients and full of toxins, Genetically modified food, lack of exercise and prayer, wifi, mobile towers etc; so cancerous events are triggered in almost all of us. Only when the tolerance level of cells is passed, cells disconnect with identity of “I” and start living selfish life. So for their individual existence, they proliferate out of control. One fine day, tumor is detected.

So what is solution? Removing tumor is cancer treatment? No it is just a self-satisfaction of modern medicine that they can control cancer. They cannot as cancer is inherent nature of each cell. Until stress is controlled, cancer is not treated.

Treatment is not perfect if it does not restore cell identity and connect it again with you, your “I”. If you remove tumor from X position, it will resurface again at some other place. This is because canceribility (ability to disconnect from body and grow separately i.e. Ego of cell) is inherent nature of all cells. It is not treated. It can be treated when we take rest. When we remove stress. When we start eating healthy food. When we live more socially active life. When we live more jovial and smiling life.

Every human being geneti­cally possesses the cancerability of tissues. Such cancerability, as a biologic feature, is normally distributed. All humans can, thus, develop cancer, yet only a fixed percentage (20%) of them does. This is dependent on the fact that to express cancerability, a human being must cross a certain threshold of physical, mental stress. This is the reason you sometimes see relatively healthy person inflicted by cancer and a chain smoker living cacer-free life 🙂.

Take care. Take care of your body very well. Love and nurture each cell of your body daily by right food, right exercise, faith in self, faith in God/almighty/mother nature.

‘Undead’ genes come alive days after life ends

Although rat is dead, its genes may still be functioning, a new study reveals.
Although rat is dead, its genes may still be functioning, a new study reveals.

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/06/undead-genes-come-alive-days-after-life-ends

At first, the researchers assumed that genes would shut down shortly after death, like the parts of a car that has run out of gas. What they found instead was that hundreds of genes ramped up. Although most of these genes upped their activity in the first 24 hours after the animals expired and then tapered off, in the fish some genes remained active 4 days after death.

Many of these postmortem genes are beneficial in emergencies; they perform tasks such as spurring inflammation, firing up the immune system, and counteracting stress. Other genes were more surprising. “What’s jaw-dropping is that developmental genes are turned on after death,” Noble says. These genes normally help sculpt the embryo, but they aren’t needed after birth. One possible explanation for their postmortem reawakening, the researchers say, is that cellular conditions in newly dead corpses resemble those in embryos. The team also found that several genes that promote cancer became more active. That result could explain why people who receive transplants from the recently deceased have a higher risk of cancer, Noble says. He and his colleagues posted their results on the preprint server bioRxiv last week, and Noble says their paper is undergoing peer review at a journal.

Season of Maruts

Microbes
Microbes

This is season of Maruts. Microbes. Rain showers abundant of Prana. Originated from various corners of the sea. With infinite different forms and past memories and Sanskars. (Yes, water do carry memories and Sanskars of its travel and so do all elements).

Since it is season of Maruts. There are chances that weak humans get trapped under these new combinations of Prana, fell sick and blame microbes for all their fault! 😀

So this post for positive attitude towards Prana.

Microbial biomass exceeds the total animal biomass. I am = I + M = I + Maruts = I + Microbes.

So who is host and who is guest? Your textbook taught you that, you are host and microbes live at your mercy.

In reality, it is total reverse case. They are host and we are guest. In any infectious disease, problem is not with bacteria and virus but WE the ill-behaved guests.

If we ill-behave (use wifi, use mobile, use pesticides, use antibiotics etc), host (microbial biomass that hosts us i.e. Maruts) has all rights to kill us.

If we behave (live life as per mother Nature’s rules and by maintaining synergy with all organisms) well, they build our life with all pleasures.

Instead of killing rich sources of Prana, improve your immunity. Do fasting. Eat moderately. Do not it for taste. Fix meal timings. Fix sleep timings. During monsoon, do not take extra mental stress. Focus your mind by jap, tap, dhyana and Sadhna. Detoxify mind and body. See the magic. You will not fell sick for entire year! Maruts will take care of you! 🙂

The function of our microbiota: who is out there and what do they do?

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3417542/

Current meta-omics developments provide a portal into the functional potential and activity of the intestinal microbiota. The comparative and functional meta-omics approaches have made it possible to get a molecular snap shot of microbial function at a certain time and place. To this end, metagenomics is a DNA-based approach, metatranscriptomics studies the total transcribed RNA, metaproteomics focuses on protein levels and metabolomics describes metabolic profiles. Notably, the metagenomic toolbox is rapidly expanding and has been instrumental in the generation of draft genome sequences of over 1000 human associated microorganisms as well as an astonishing 3.3 million unique microbial genes derived from the intestinal tract of over 100 European adults. Remarkably, it appeared that there are at least 3 clusters of co-occurring microbial species, termed enterotypes, that characterize the intestinal microbiota throughout various continents. The human intestinal microbial metagenome further revealed unique functions carried out in the intestinal environment and provided the basis for newly discovered mechanisms for signaling, vitamin production and glycan, amino-acid and xenobiotic metabolism. The activity and composition of the microbiota is affected by genetic background, age, diet, and health status of the host. In its turn the microbiota composition and activity influence host metabolism and disease development. Exemplified by the differences in microbiota composition and activity between breast- as compared to formula-fed babies, healthy and malnourished infants, elderly and centenarians as compared to youngsters, humans that are either lean or obese and healthy or suffering of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). In this review we will focus on our current understanding of the functionality of the human intestinal microbiota based on all available metagenome, metatranscriptome, and metaproteome results

Season, Vata Prakop and Asuric Influence

We ,more or less, all are beasts in human form. Two qualities that restricts us becoming human are Anger and Lust. No worship, no meditation, no sadhna will bear fruits unless these two beasts are alive in you. Sacrifice them.

Beast Within

कामः क्रोधौ द्वौ पशु इमामेव मनसा बलि समर्पयेत।
क्रोधौ विघ्नकृतो बलि दत्वा जपं चरेत्॥

– महानिर्वाणतंत्र

काम & क्रोध – दोनों विध्नकारी पशुओका बलिदान करके उपासना करनी चाहिए|

’इन्द्रियाणि पशूनहत्वा’-

इन्द्रिय रूप पशु का वध करें ।

Although anger and lust can become active any time of the year, during monsoon, changes in our environment are such (mainly lack of Sun exposure) that they intensify these two beastly qualities. Observe around – why there are so many revolutions/agitations in the month of August. 🙂 Why monsoon is deemed as season of lust by Bollywood? 🙂

It is स्वभाव or nature of this season (seasons when दक्षिणायन of the sun happen) to spur आसुरी शक्ति of human mind during this time.

And नवरात्रि is the time when we can worship eternal form of Energy to suppress beasts within.

In fact, there are 5 Navratri(s) in one year but we hardly pay attention to celebrate even two major Navratri(s) Chaitra Navratri and Sharad Navratri.

Since परम्परा of identifying beasts like काम & क्रोध् and scarifying them for the greater good of the society does not happen, we have living beasts around. Pervert pedophiles to rapists to murderers to suicide attempters.

राम (ह्रदय सम्राट – अयोध्या निवासी – The one that rules our heart) – सीता ( शक्ति trapped in Muladhara chakra but freed by राम , हनुमान & वानरसेना ) , हनुमान & वानरसेना ( महाप्राण & मरुतगण i.e. micro organisms living in body) – they all together can control beasts of mind.

This year, when you receive “Happy Vijaya Dashami!” greetings, think about celebration of success of killing beasts within! And start preparing for real Vijay within 🙂

Child Development is an essential social forestry (सामाजिक वनीकरण)

Child Development - Social responsibility
Child Development – Social responsibility

There are 100 families in one urban residential area. All of them decided to grow mango tree. 25 families believed that…mango tree should be exposed to all natural/man-made conditions so they decided to take no care of mango trees. Out of 25 orphan trees, 10 trees grew well and 15 died premature death after 3 months.

10 families were happy: “See, we told you. You don’t need to over conscious about trees. Let them grow as is and they will be fine. You unnecessary worry about mango trees. We just need to grow them and they will grow by learning from us and others. No extra care is required.”

So why did 10 orphan trees could survive and 15 died?
Three factors play role in growth of any organism
1) Seed quality 2) Environment 3) Eco-system

25 trees were lacking environmental help in terms of their caretaker so their chances of survival was reduced to 66%. Some of them were near trees who were taken care and had superior quality of seed so 10 trees could survive. 15 were unfortunate – they either lacked seed quality or eco-support (Support from other mango trees and their caretakers) or both.

Child development is like growing and nurturing mango tree. If you are carefree and firm believer that…let the child exposed to everything…and still your child is growing as expected, you and your kid are lucky ! Despite your carelessness, his/her eco-support (good teacher, good friends, good parents of their friends etc) and inherent seed quality or both helped him/her.
But still, your duty is compromised so there will be some compromise with development.

Seed quality of child development : Healthy food before and during pregnancy. Healthy habits. Stress-free home and work environment.

Environment: Food, Water, Air

Eco-System : Family, friends, neighbours

Growing child need all! He or she can grow without all luxuries you provide but not without healthy communities.
