Achhe Din ….

(…..writing on eve of the 1st day of Vikram Samvat 2071)

Here’s wishing you all a Joyous Deepawali & a Healthy, Happy & Prosperous New Year!

Been away from here for too long….. actually more than a year has passed since I or any of you guys have shared anything here. Time to change that.

A lot of water has since flown under the bridge. Some of the Sunrise Parivar kids have entered adolescence while a few are just about to hop out of it and enter early adulthood – the unabashed youth. The magical age at which anything seems possible & achievable.

Our country has also witnessed paradigm change as far as politics is concerned. BJP has achieved total majority in parliament and is also routing its opponents in the assembly elections, state after state. It has decimated opposition recently in Haryana and Maharashtra assembly elections.

Cricket has lost ground in popularity. Kabaddi has gained and other sports have also picked up. Hope this trend continues. Equation is simple, if other sports also get equal attention, our medal tally at international competition improves BUT on the flip side, if we keep loving cricket blindly, bank account of cricketers, cricket administrators and ad-makers grow fat. Choice is yours to make.

Our honorable PM Shri Narendrabhai Modi has launched Swachha Bharat Abhiyan. I had once heard a dialogue in a movie which inferred that we get what & how we think or want, i.e. we get our police exactly how we wish it to be like & we get our politicians exactly how we wish them to be like. So it is us that need to change in order to bring success to this humongous task that our PM has initiated. Come, let us all take this pledge that we will not litter and we will not tolerate anyone littering in the area close to our residence & shop or office. (doesn’t mean that we go and pick quarrels with anyone who litters around, instead we clean the dirt and then request him/her to not litter anymore)

Evening at 9 – 11pm:  This is the time for eliminating unnecessary/toxic chemicals (detoxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes).  This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music.  If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on health.

Evening at 11pm – 1am:  This is the detoxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 – 3am:  detoxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 – 5am:  detoxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time.  Since the detoxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.

Morning 5 – 7am:  detoxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 – 9am:  absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick.  Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit.  Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 – 10am rather than no meal at all.

Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals.  Aside from that, midnight to 4:00 am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood.  Therefore, have a good sleep and don’t sleep late.


Cancer Info

Following info was received in an email, Hoax-Slayer website ( says its a hoax as far as the name to which this info is attributed.

But after reading through it, I find the information to be very useful. Tips are quite harmless, infact they are beneficial, & there is logic to it.

My personal opinion is DO NOT OPT FOR ANY TYPE OF CONVENTIONAL (RADIATION/ SURGERY/ CHEMO). I have seen people dying even after going through these tremendously painful and body-wrenching procedures & therapies.

Ayurved, Yog and plenty other alternative medicines are there. we just need to explore them.

Now , pls go thru the original msg:

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer
cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have
multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients
that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after
treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the
cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a
person’s lifetime. 

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer
cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and
forming tumors. 

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has
nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic,
but also to environmental, food and lifestyle factors. 

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing
diet to eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day 
and by including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing
cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells
in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can
cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc. 

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars
and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs. 

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often
reduce tumor size.
However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction. 

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from
chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either
compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb
to various kinds of infections and complications. 

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to
mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy.
Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer
cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made
with Aspartame and it is harmful
. A better natural substitute
would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small
Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in
color Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the
gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.                                 

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based
 is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little other meat, 
like chicken. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole
grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into
an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked
food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live
enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to
cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance
growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building
healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most
vegetables including be an sprouts) and eat some raw
vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at
temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees                                 C)..                                 

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high
caffeine Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer
fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or
filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap
water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of
digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the
intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup. 

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By
refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes
to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the
body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells. 

14. Some supplements build up the immune system
(IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals,
EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies own killer cells to destroy
cancer cells.. Other supplements like vitamin E are known
to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s
normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or
unneeded cells. 

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.

A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior
be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put
the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to
have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated
environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to
get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells. 

1. No plastic containers in micro

2. No water bottles in freezer

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.. 

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed ArmyMedical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

It is FAITH which matters

(Please read every line carefully to enjoy it. Don’t miss even a single word. Every second is worth in reading this small true story)

An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty.

He asks one of his new students to stand and…..

Prof: So you believe in God?

Student: Absolutely, sir.

Prof: Is God good?

Student Sure..

Prof: Is God all-powerful?

Student: Yes.

Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him.

Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is this God good then? Hmm?

(Student is silent.)

Prof: You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?


Prof: Is Satan good?

Student: No.

Prof: Where does Satan come from?

Student: From…God…

Prof: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?


Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct?


Prof: So who created evil?

(Student does not answer.)

Prof:Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?

Student: Yes, sir.

Prof:So, who created them?

(Student has no answer.)

Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you.

Tell me, son…Have you ever seen God?

Student:No, sir.

Prof:Tell us if you have ever heard your God?

Student: No, sir.

Prof:Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?

Student:No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

Prof:Yet you still believe in Him?

Student: Yes.

Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn’t exist.

What do you say to that, son?

Student:Nothing. I only have my faith.

Prof: Yes. Faith. And that is the problem science has.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?


Student: And is there such a thing as cold?

Prof: Yes.

Student: No sir. There isn’t.

(The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)

Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat.

But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go

any further after that.There is no such thing as cold . Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of

heat.. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy . Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it .

(There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)

Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

Prof:Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?

Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright

light, flashing light….But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it’s called darkness, isn’t it? In

reality, darkness isn’t. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?

Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?

Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

Prof:Flawed? Can you explain how?

Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one.To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it.

Now tell me, Professor…Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

Student:Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)

Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher? (The class is in uproar.)

Student:Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?

(The class breaks out into laughter.)

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain,sir.

With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The room is silent… The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Prof: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.

Student:  That is it sir… The link between man & god is FAITH . That is all that keeps things moving & alive.

NB: I believe you have enjoyed the conversation…and if so…you’ll probably want your friends/colleagues to enjoy the same…won’t you?….

this is a true story, and the student was none other than………….
