Thanks for visiting my website and reading my blog. I hope you found something interesting.
Life is fun, with demands on time in so many directions.
Thursday I went to the Community Centre in Cricklewood. Every Full Moon, they do prayers to Satnarayan Swami and Mata Laxmi. It is a tradition we Sindhis have followed for generations, to pray to God and Goddess to give us peace in the household, and prosperity in our business affairs.
Later I visited the Southbank Centre, attracted there by the exhibition of her Picasso like painting by
Sangeeta Roshni Babani (she is an inspired painter from Mumbai, and she's Sindhi too, so I thought I'll
pay there a visit).
Sangeeta hadn't obtained her visa, and therefore could not be there. Other artists from India exhibited
their creations alongside a few of Sangeeta's paintings.
Particularly I liked a table whose top opens in segments like a fan, and this is adorned by mirrors.
This is by Yamin Mohiuddin from Hyderabad. I can see such a piece adorning some young one's bedroom or even a hairdressing salon. It would look good in a media company's foyer.
If you like genuine teak furniture, like a chair crafted like black petals, or a palm made of teak, and don't mind paying about £800 for such items, Firdos Furnishers of Nagpur have several pieces on display.
An English idea that seemed to catch everyone's eye was Gerrad the Second. This is a folding dog that looks like an inspired work of origami, with 188 sections to unfold and paste together very very carefully with Uhu glue. The small ones sell for £20, and are limited editions of 500. Fair enough. They have decorative prints of dollar notes, piping, mascots, newspaper cuttings and so on, like industry or sector or indeed national mascots.The large ones, including one made of black wool decorated with harlequin squares, well, those will become collector's items, starting in an auction in 2014 at £1,000. Absolutely grand. Made by Liam from Liverpool.
Today I missed going to the Millionaire Mentors Bootcamp at the Hilton, London Bridge. There is a free general entrace, generously hosted by Raymond Aaron, the bestselling author. Problem is, it starts at 9 am on Saturday and Sunday. Just a bit too early to travel up there for me; otherwise it seems an event worth attending. Finishes at 6pm both days. Bootcamp to give you quick fire ideas how to boot up your ideas and send them skyrocketing.
I am sure someone can suggest ideas to make my website and blog into a money minting machine. Well, hold my hand and show me the way.

I have high regard for the yoga techniques taught by Swami Ramdev, who's shivir in Hainault over 5 years ago I had the great joy of attending. In fact, it was Baba Ramdev's first visit to Europe at that time, and since then he has made countless journeys to Europe and America, Africa and many places.
He has always received a warm and great welcome everywhere he has visited, for his name has spread as the man who brings the magic of yoga techniques for improving health. His partner in the Patanjali Yogpeeth foundation, Acharya Balkrishan-ji, is one of the best in the field of research in the field of Ayurveda, and he has discovered and created many formulations which he has generously brought to the world, for bringing improvement in health.
Their greatest reward is the adulation they are shown by people, and their products are receiving wide-ranging note and approval, as they help people control or even cure diabetes, cholesterol, obesity, third-stage cancer and various ailments, like hair loss, impotence, urinary problems, the list is extensive. Of course, a degree of faith is required to try out the techniques and herbal remedies.
The shop, called Divine Supplements, is located at 855 High Road, Goodmayes, IG3 8TG. This is near the corner with Barley Lane. Tesco with ample parking is nearby.
They are normally open only on Wednesdays and Saturdays, between 10.30 and 4 pm.
Telephone no : 0208 590 7900.
Mr Wilson is a gifted masseur, and he generously offers a first free massage for people over 70 years of age. For everybody else, it is a reasonable amount, and worth every penny. Mr Wilson is very good with relieving Frozen Shoulder, and he helped me with trapped energy in the chest. I definitely recommend this gentleman for a curative massage.
I wish you good health.

It is monsoon and rains intermittently, making roadworks difficult. Much money has been allocated to repairing the roads, which are full of potholes, in Hyderabad, Mumbai and Banglaore. Within the last 24 hours, 4 people have been killed on the roads as a result of the potholes, sending people off their scooters and cars off balance. Traffic grinds down, and it is sheer determination of people to go to their work, take children to school or return home that makes them carry out these bumpy, back-arching journeys. Just to see the roads on NDTV and their representative coverage of this situation makes people cringe.
There is no clarity as to who is responsible for keeping the roads up to date. The local people have given up on the politicians and councillors, whose job it is to organise the repairs and point them out to the relevant municipal authorities, but confusion over which patch it is, whose jurisdiction it is, who is responsible and so on leaves a poor impression. Just how do the politicians and councillors and the road works departments liaise and co-ordinate is a fool's blessing.
Of course there is a lot that can be done to rectify the situation, and ensure the traffic moves at a normal pace, saving people time and frustration. This would surely add to the economic growth? Time is money, and a satisfied people can enjoy the finer things in life than being regularly trapped on the bouncy journeys.
It is time clear maps were drawn for people to know who is responsible for road maintainaince on each patch, and then for the teams responsible to get the work done of filling the potholes. It may not be the best plan to fill them all in a short while of say 48 hours, but rather to fill in a few roads each day when the weather permits so that the job is well done and the filling solidifies and takes hold and lasts longer. Attention to this problem of repairing the potholes will do Indian cities a lot of good, and the people proud. Those who are in charge must ensure they don't let the people down. Travel on Indian roads ought to be safe and comfort and free of stress as possible. That's something to achieve.

The Chapter 9 Bankruptcy of Detroit last Friday is a stark reminder of what happens to an economy when trust breaks down between communities and disrupts the social fabric, leading to decline and decay and a sad breakdown of an economy.
I understand from cursory reading of books on Detroit that the 1967 riots sparked off a distrust between the communities, and may have been the turning point for the breakdown of the economy which has now resulted to this sad, sad decline.
No two children of the same family will be totally understanding or obedient to their parent(s), but if family members work in harmony and common objectives, they tend to be more successful. That rule of harmony holds true for organisations as well as for communities, there is no reason why it should not hold true for cities or even nations, hence last week I referred to Cario and Oakland but of course I should also have mentioned Miami.
Just imagine Detroit in the 1950s, which now appears to have been its heyday, full of harmony and enterprise, inspiring dreams, the American dream, contributing to its status as a city of great reputation worldwide, with its ballrooms, museums, theatres, skyscrapers....The industry and enterprise was there to give a livelihood to the 465,000 residents there, who soon grew to over a million and to nearly two million towards the peak. The infrastructure was added to as it served the citizens and visitors, and the town grew to a city.
The decline has seen people leave, mainly white people leaving the city to suburbs, leaving a ghetto at its core, the deserted buildings falling apart, now ready for demolition or refurbishment.
The population has fallen, leaving the municipality with an income of about $1 billion a year, when it probably needs at least a billion-and-a-half just to service the interest on the bonds.
A solution may be repopulation, with some company and a group of New Economy companies able to generate a lot of jobs and sustain the livelihoods of the citizens. Obviously there is a lot of talent and raw energy, that can be purposefully employed and will create wealth and sustain the people and regenerate the city. All that is now needed is for a few men and women of vision to locate their wealth generating companies there, and give a boost to the regeneration of the housing and public buildings.
The talent is there, you cannot stand and see a great city die. Hopefully, the government can make a special provision for a funding programme to regenerate this great iconic city with its beautiful landmarks.
As harmony exists between people, so will Recovery and Prosperity bloom in their midst. Today, I pray for restoration of faith in Detroit.

Swollen legs are a most painful condition. I am diabetic, and I developed swollen legs, and I was frightened.
My legs used to feel like lead. The blood was not circulating properly. In fact, blood was collecting in the lower parts of the legs. I was determined to find relief for me, through some method, if a method there was.
First thing I remembered was something called 'bench exercises', which a reknowned magazine owner had once written about. I tried what I imagined were bench exercises. I would hold the edge of the table and try to raise up and down on my legs - do sit ups holding the table. Very painful with bloated legs.
But observing Baba Ramdev doing his exercises on Aastah TV, I realized that the way to do this exercise is to lie flat on the back, then BREATHE OUT and bring one knee to the chest, BREATHE OUT again and bring the other knee to the chest. In other words, knock the air out of the stomach, naturally and not forcefully. The relax. And, still lying down on the back, do cycling movements with your legs, for five, ten, fifteen, twenty minutes progressively as the legs become less bloated, more normal and are able to take more exercise.
Another thing, and in fact the first thing to do, is to soak your legs in a bucket of warm-to-hot water with some Dettol or antibacterial liquid, and enjoy this for 20 minutes to half hour, till the veins open up and gradually after a few days the circulation may be restored to normal.
The third thing is to wear tights (or hosiery) from a chemists shop, although I imagine any tights will do for the time-being if those are not available. Wearing the tights will give pressure to maintain the good work done. Then, if you follow this routine, within about eight weeks, your legs will start to look and feel normal. Then use this routine with your own judgement, as and when necessary.
May friends, I wish you good health.

As the weather shoots up another 5 degrees in most parts of India, including the normally cooler hills, there is a drought in the state of Maharashtra. The water wells are empty, and water is being brought in by tankers, which move along and inefficiently distribute the precious water, spilling some of it as the tanker moves along, one pewter container per person.
The drought is all no thanks to the sugar cane industry, which drinks up most of the irrigated water. There are handsome subsidies in the sugar cane industry, and more acres are earmarked for further plantation of this crop. The sugar factory bosses are happy, and the regional government ministers have to get their favour. But it seems absurd as the drought is likely to drive people away from parts of Maharashtra, and the overfill of treasury to the sugar bosses will bring poverty to the rest of the region.
That is something which is best faced up to and averted before it becomes glaringly obvious.
Sugar could be imported quite economically from regions of Africa where there is plenty of land and water, such as Uganda, where the Indian Madhvani family have the biggest sugar mill.
In Pune, normally a cool area compared to other parts of Maharashtra, temperatures have soared up to 45 degrees centigrade, and there seems just about enough water to wash the face and brush teeth with a glass of water. This is in stark contrast to how it used to be, when people could take a comfortable bath. The CM of Maharashtra and his cabinet must rethink on this policy of allowing more sugar cane plantation, to ensure the economy doesn't become unbalanced. I hope they will listen to this as constructive criticism, as I have stayed in Pune and have many relatives there.

The Last Great Prophet, a review by Thomas Sugrue
It seems there are people regularly interested in the review of the above-name. This, according to
a reprint of the original 1937 edition of Think and Grow Rich (with a foreward by Tom Butler-Bowden),
appeared in the Herlad Tribune, in the 1930s.
The book itself is entitled Mohammed, a biography, by Essad Bey, who has a few books to his credit,
The above-mentioned biography and the previously mentioned review by Thomas Surgrue, have earned their names in recent history, I believe.
All religionists are dreamers, who have believed and pursued a dream, as did Mohammed, as did Christ, as did the Buddha. Their distinguishing characteristic was persistence, a characteristic that is the top quality necessary for any kind of success, followed by a purpose, a plan....and action.
All these revered figures had one more distinguishing feature in addition to a message of God : a message of love, preaching God's love for humanity and the unifying fact of humanity : love and honour for all, as brothers and sisters in humanity.
Today, I send my message of peace and love to the people of Oklahoma, Iowa, Arkansas, Missiouri, and the other states who have seen devastation at the hands of Nature.
When I think of the twisters and tornadoes (now heading for Nebraska and Texas) I imagine Christ's command : Winds, be thee still.
Likewise, we should follow in the footsteps of Jesus, and say : Winds, be thee still.

The yogi with the big beard and healthy smile who wears saffron robe and shows breathing exercises and yoga is known as Swami Baba Ramdev. He has helped a tremendous number of people regain their health and vitality. I attended his first shivir in Hainault, Essex - that was his first big venture outside India. I was deeply impressed with his style and his persona. He is a true messenger of goodness, come to share with humanity the gift of good health which we can rekindle within each of us.
He has a range of herbal products which are effective in controlling diabetes, cholestrol, and even (I believe) swine flu (the herbal is known as Sanjeevni for swine flu).
The shop in Ilford is at 855 High Road, Goodmayes, Ilford, Essex, IG3.
The phone number is 0208-590 7900.
It is best to make an appointment before visiting.
Normally it is open only on Saturdays, 10.30 to 4.30.
Mr Wilson here is one of the best masseurs, and does wonders for frozen shoulders.
Baba Ramdev is currently in India, and if there was such a category, he is worthy of being nominated for the Nobel Prize.
He has helped people restore their health, even from cancer. His knowledge of health and wellness is marvellous. There is Divine inspiration behind what he does. Jot se jot jaga-teh chalo, prema keh Ganga bahateh chalo. (Spread the Divine light, spread the Divine love).
