“Go-Matha”

 Cow is  an animal, but… a cow has many specialities that no other animal (not even human beings) has in this world. This is the reason that Hindus consider cow as ‘mother’ after their own mother, and pray to the cow with respect calling it “Go-Matha”.  These are some truths about go-matha.

· If a cow eats something poisonous by mistake, and we drink its milk, will we fall ill? To find out, one cow was regularly fed a particular quantity of a poison every day. After 24 hours, its blood, urine, dung and milk were tested in a lab to check where the poison could be found. In this way, the tests were done not for 1 or 2 days, but continuously for 90 days in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) New Delhi. The researcher did not find any trace of poison in milk, blood, urine or dung of that cow.
Then where did this poison fed for 90 days go? Just like Lord Shiva held poison in his throat, the go-matha hid the entire poison in her throat. This is a special quality that no other animal has.

· This is the only creature that inhales oxygen and also exhales oxygen.   · Cow milk has the quality of countering poison.  · There are diseases that medical science has not yet understood; urine of Go-matha has the power to cure them.   · If cow-ghee and rice are cooked together, two powerful gases called ethylene-oxide, propylene-oxide are released. Propylene-oxide is the best gas used for creating artificial rain.  ·  Cow-urine is the world’s best killer of microbes    · With medicines made using cow dung and cow urine, stomach-related ailments can be cured.  · We can save ourselves from radio-waves by plastering the home floors and area outside home with cow-dung.   · Cow-dung has the power to destroy the microbes causing cholera.   · If 10 grams of cow-ghee is put in fire (yagnya), 1 ton of oxygen is generated.

Advice to seniors.*

A study in United States shows over 51% of old people fall down from climbing stairs. Every year, many Americans are killed by climbing stairs.

*Experts Reminder:* 

After 65 years, these 10 actions should be avoided:

1, do not climb staircase. If must climb, hold on firmly to staircase railings.

2, do not rapidly twist your head. Warm up your whole body first.

3, do not bend your body to touch your toe. Warm up your whole body first.

4, do not stand to wear your pants. Wear your pants while sitting down.

5, do not sit up when lying face up. Sit up from one side (left hand side, or right hand side) of your body.

A mindful educationist

In an effort to bring about change in the society, a Begumpet sub-inspector, Madhu Uyala, has recently adopted a government school in his jurisdiction. Interestingly, before joining Hyderabad Police in 2013, Madhu was a teacher. “I used to coach students for IIT entrance exams for six years. I had to quit my job after I fell ill for a few months. Post which I joined the police department,” says Madhu.

However, a change in profession could not dampen his spirit to work in the education sector. “I met a few pass outs from the Zeera Government  Upper Primary School, Shamlal (Telugu medium). They were lamenting about the poor facilities and lack of basic infrastructure at their school. It was then that I decided to adopt the school and serve the students,” he says.

Talking about the contribution of his students’ and the locals in transforming the adopted school, Madhu says, “They contributed abacus tools, school bags, note books, stationery and even sports equipments like carom boards and volleyball kits. We have hired two non-teaching staff members to look after the sanitation. We have also renovated  the entire school, constructed compound walls.”

Apart from this, the school will soon form an Aspirants’ Hub — a two-room knowledge centre for competitive exam study. And now, Madhu’s wife, Archana, is joining the cause as well. “She is also a teacher and an expert in abacus. She recently delivered a baby boy, so after a couple of months, she will take up classes,” he mentions.

Madhu now wants to bring them on par with private schools. “Recently, we prepared a special time table, which included skill-oriented teaching aid among other things. With the school strength going up to 70, the DEO is now considering to convert it into an English-medium school from the next academic year,” he says.

Clearly, Madhu’s initiative is not just quenching his own passion for the sector, but also rousing a fire in many young minds.

Expressive message

 

A university professor wrote an expressive message to his students at the doctorate  masters and bachelors levels in South Africa.  The message

Collapsing any nation does not require use of atomic bombs or the use of long range missiles. It only requires lowering the quality of education and allowing cheating in the examinations by the students.

The patient dies in the hands of such doctors.  And buildings collapse in the hands of such engineers. And money is lost in the hands of such accountants. And humanity dies in the hands of such religious scholars. And justice is lost in the hands of such judges.

The collapse of education is the collapse of the nation.

 

The freshly brewed aroma of a letter

In a bygone era young women would spray a little perfume on their letters to their beaus. Nowadays of course even getting a handwritten letter in the poet is a rarity.

But India Post is making it possible to send letters that carry the fragrance of something a large part of India loves deeply  on Sunday April 23 the Department of Posts will release a ‘ coffee stamp ‘ at the General Post Office Bengaluru.  The stamps have been printed at the India Security Press   Nashik.

It will last long

The technology involves spraying or embossing the stamps with fine coffee granules that will retain the aroma for a long time  said Charles Lobo,  Chief Post Master General Karnataka Circle.  “ Only on the day of the release will we know the colour  texture and design “

The stamp will be released by Minister of State for Communications Manoj Sinha and Union Minister for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman with officials of the Postal Department and Coffee Board.  “ I ‘m very excited about the coffee stamp “ said Ms. Sitharaman.  “ It is not just about philatelic interest but also about the appreciation of coffee.  It’s a collector’s version priced at Rs  100.  Coffee deserves a premium price  we should not underprice it”.

One lakh stamps will be ready for sale to collectors.  The stamp first day cover miniature sheets and information brochures will be available at the Philately Bureau  Bangalore General Post Office and all other head post offices.

Bhutan first introduced the concept of aromatic stamps in 1973.  New Zealand  Thailand and Switzerland among others joined in later.  Brazil has issued coffee and burnt wood scented stamps and China has done fruits and sweet and sour pork.

India introduced its first aromatic stamp in 2006 with a Rs 15 sandlewood scented stamp.  Thirty lakh of these sold out within two weeks.  In 2007 there were rose scented  stamps  in four varieties of the flower Jawahar  Neelam  Delhi princess and Bhim  at Rs 5 each and a jasmine fragrance in 2008

A great leap in science

The world of gadgets is ever evolving and everyday day there emerges  a new concept to improve existing technology. Working on increasing the speed of electronic devices with the help of photonics technology is Dasari Venkatakrishna Rao  who is pursuing PhD in material chemistry from university of Hyderabad.  He has been selected for Lindue Nobel laureates 2017 an annual scientific conference that brings together Nobel laureates and young scientists to discuss important issues in that field. It will be held in Germany in June.  ‘ I ‘m happy that I was selected to present my studies at such a prestigious place. I am excited about meeting people who are working on similar technology there and getting feed back about my work so far.  The technology I am working on is relatively new and hence not many are aware of the advantages of using light instead of electrons in electric devices’ says Dasari.

About his study Dasari says “ the speed of light is much faster that the speed of electrons. In the same case if you want to send a signal from one regime to another regime  you need a medium to pass the signal. Unlike electronics light may not need any medium to send a signal to two separate extremes. We are working on creating micro lasers and modulators which can fit into photonic devices. Scientists are already working on creating photonic chips in western countries but no one is working on this subject in India’

While growing up Dasari wanted to be a doctor but his parents couldn’t afford it.  “ My father worked as a security guard and my mother was a daily wage worker. When I was in class VIII I realized that I was good at chemistry and decided to pursue a career in it. It was while I was graduating that I chose photonics as my subject of research. Soon I ‘ll actually becalled Dr. venkatakrishnarao” says the 27 year old from Ongole with a laugh.

Dasari is a dedicated student and spends most of his time in the lab either studying or experimenting under the guidance of his supervisor Professor Rajadurai Chandrasekar  whom he considers his idol.  “ I am an atheist. I think man has the power of defining his own destiny.  Professor Chandrasekar is very knowledgeable and helpful.  He inspires me to put in more than 100 percent in my work. I idolize Dr A P J Adbul Kalam and Dr B R Ambedkar who also came from small towns and made it big “ he concludes.
