SALT -Commercially Refined or Unrefined

Through out history the essentiality of salt has been subjected to government monopoly and special taxes. Salt taxes long supported British Monarchs. French kings developed a salt monopoly by selling exclusive rights to produce it.

In modern times Mahatma Gandhi defied British salt laws as a means of mobilizing popular support for self-rule in India. In recent years, the promotion of free trade through the World Trade Organisation has led to abolition of many national monopolies.

Salt was in general used long before history began to be recorded.Some 2700 years BC i.e. 4700 years ago, a treatise was published in China byPeng-Tzao-Kan-Mu. It discussed 40 kinds of salts including what we know as thecommon salt. It also described methods of extracting salt [NaCl]. Themethods are amazingly similar to processes used today.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of water for treatment of disease. Use of water for treatment has been around for thousands of years, as far back as Yogies,Rishis and even ancient Greeks ,Romans, and is integral part in many traditional medicine systems in Asia . HOW DOES HYDROTHERAPY WORKS - Healing properties of Hydrotherapy are based on its mechanical and /or thermal effects .It makes use of body’s reaction to hot or cold stimuli, to the protracted application of heat, to the pressure exerted by water and to the sensation of water itself. Nerves carry what is felt by skin deeper into the body, where it is then vital in stimulating the immune system- influencing production of stress hormone ,improving circulation and digestion, encouraging flow of blood and lessening body’s sensitivity of pain. HEAT is used to quiet and soothe the body. And slow down the activity of internal organs. COLD is used to stimulate and invigorate, increasing internal activities of body . When cold water is applied to the body through showering it opens up capillaries and flushes blood deep into all of your internal organs . ESSENTIALLY you are flushing your system with new blood encouraging circulation. When the capillaries open ,the blood that was once in your system will have no choice but to leave and new blood enters carrying more oxygen to nourish your body and regenerate cells. Normally body cells recuperate themselves in 72 hours .Recuperation becomes slower as you old. But practicing hydrotherapy stimulates the cells and cells regenerate instantly. It is better than exercising for hours. Exercise cannot stimulate the cell syche to the extent as with cold water. Body works hard to restablish the normal level of warmth thus burning extra calories.

There are certain energies which cancel each other, the result is nothing. There are certain energies which multiply their effects and give an unexpected results. It is like superposition of two waves resulting in resonance.

My love affair with Allahabad

How do you fall in love with a city with which you have had no association? I was not born in Allahabad. I did not study in any of the famed schools of Allahabad nor did I attend the Oxford of East, Allahabad University. I have always been a Lucknow girl, school college university…Mayfair, Novelty, Leela, and Ganj all evoke memories that no other city can match. Yet here I am, trying to explain how did a city with which I had no roots nor any emotional ties, become a huge part of my life. When we were transferred to Allahabad, the first thought that came to my mind was of Dr. Ishwari Prasad. I was a student of Ancient Indian History and his book was my bible. I never had the guts to meet him but was happy knowing that I lived close to his house! Thus began my love affair with Allahabad, definitely not love at first sight but a gentle more enduring one. Allahabad became associated with all the authors whom I had read or whom I was to read later…Nirala, Mahadevi Verma, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Subhadra Kumari Chauhan, Dharamveer Bharati, Upendra Nath Ashk, Rajendra Yadav, Kamleshwar, Mamta Kalia….I just felt proud that I too had lived in Allahabad as if intellect is a virus that you catch by breathing the same air!! I remember meeting Dr. S.N. Roy. He asked me the meaning of my name and when I passed the test, he wrote me the verse from Kumarasambhava. Just like that. It is my most prized possession. Then came UPSC, the Karbala of many. I had to face the UPSC interview and to prepare for that I toured Allahabad like I was on a countdown! I discovered the antiquity of the city Ashoka, Samudragupta, Harsha and Akbar had made this city their own. It was the capital of United Provinces and what can I say about Chandrashekhar Azad. Who can embrace death like him? The city became a physical entity to me now. Khusro bagh, Anand Bhawan, Pontoon bridge Mahakumbha of 1989 all added flesh to the skeleton of my Allahabad. But this was not the end of my affair with Allahabad. I was to visit Allahabad again. This time as a bride! Our reception was held in the lawns of Prayag Sangeet Samiti, a dream come true for me. I shared this with my mother-in –law and she just beamed. More was to come. My eldest was born in Nazareth hospital. Doctor T.B. Singh and Doctor Manjula Pandey were like family, doting on me. I still vividly remember the moment when I was being wheeled to the operation theater and the lift door opened, inside the lift was my dearest friend. She had heard the news and had just rushed to the hospital. This could have only been possible in Allahabad, where distance between places and people was nonexistent and hearts were always connected. This has been the love affair of a young driven girl, a shy bride and a nervous mother with a city that just grew on her and enriched her life without her even realizing it!
