Our socialist friends say that Sanskrit & Hindi are being enforced by the Centre. They have to be enforced ( at least in CBSE syllabus & Navodaya ), as one is a Scholarly Language and the other, National Language.Those who are against may be eyeing narrow, political gains !

Banana, antidote to constipation !

I had a problem after my piles operation. Hard stools were coming out with blood, even after the operation ! I panicked, but solved the problem.

"A Banana a day keeps constipation away" was proved true, as I incorporated one ripe banana in my daily diet. My Doctor had told me to lay off non vegetarian and hot food and so I became a vegan ! Hot and sour foods have been eschewed, Eggs are taboo !

Once I made the dietary changes, constipation stopped. I was wondering how I got piles in the first place. If the tertiary cause was piles, the secondary cause was constipation and the primary cause was constipating foods. So I avoid all constipating foods. No milk, as it is dehydrating. No alcohol, as it is also constipating. Fruits and veggies are best

Before my morning tea, I have 3 glasses of water and so I get smooth motion. Now motion and digestion are OK and gone is my constipation !

Isnt constipation the root cause of all diseases ?
