The Allopathic Ramayana

Navratras to Diwali is the season of revisiting the messages from Ramayana, the largest epic of our country which was once classified as one of the Puranas. One can understand the story of Ramayana as the story of mind, body and soul and the story of causation and prevention of a disease, where the soul is represented as Rama and the physical body as Sita. Body is made up of five elements with earth being the predominant. Sita was the daughter of earth (prithvi). Soul and body can only unite in presence of a determined mind holding them together. Determination means “aim” and in Hindi it is called “lakshya”. The mind with a defined aim, therefore, represents “Lakshmana”. more

Travel in India to boom again with 50 per cent people making plans already: Report

While the lockdown put a ban on travelling across India, it could not however curb people’s desire to explore new places. A recent survey conducted by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry( FICCI) and Thrillophilia across India, revealed that while more than 50 per cent plan on travelling in the next 2 months alone, 33 per cent are making plans to travel twice of what they did in 2019 as the next year rolls in. Conducted in October 2020 with most respondents belonging to major metropolitan cities in India, this survey was aimed towards understanding the post-Covid preferences of Indian travellers and covered aspects like safety measures, accommodations, modes of transport, etc. “It is interesting to know that 65 per cent of respondents said they are comfortable travelling outside their states in flights or personal vehicles, and around 90 per cent comfortable in exploring offbeat places in the mountains, beaches, smaller villages or towns, and alike. This can help the stakeholders of the travel industry to redesign their services in line with inclinations of the travellers, thus opening up opportunities for both new and old business avenues,” Abhishek Daga, the co-founder of Thrillophilia quoted.

Seven Different Forms Of Mild Covid-19 Identified

Scientists have shown that there are seven "forms of disease" in mild Covid-19, and that the novel coronavirus infection leaves behind significant changes in the immune system even after 10 weeks, findings which may aid in the treatment of patients, and in the development of a potent vaccine. The study, published in the journal Allergy, involving 109 recovered Covid-19 patients and 98 healthy individuals in the control group, showed that various symptoms related to Covid-19 occur in groups. In the research, scientists, including those from the Medical University of Vienna in Austria, identified seven groups of symptoms including "flu-like symptoms" with fever, chills, fatigue and cough, "common cold-like symptoms" with rhinitis, sneezing, dry throat and nasal congestion, and "joint and muscle pain".
