Breathtaking Scuba Diving in Fiji

Scuba diving in the Fiji islands in south Pacific ocean. It is really breath taking & one of the most beautiful videos I’ve seen.I feel like as if I’m in the Ocean :P. Absolutely incredible, and the music was in perfect sync. Nature & Aquatic lovers you will be in love with this video like me..

Underwater caves, deep blue clear water, scuba divers, sea snakes, and colorful coral reefs exploding with tropical fish and other marine life.

Looking forward to experience it..


How heavy is this glass of water?

A Psychologist walked around a room while teaching Stress Management to an audience.
As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “Half empty or Half full” question.
Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter.  It depends on how long I hold it.
If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem.
If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm.
If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed.
In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change,
But The longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.
She continued, “The Stresses and Worries in Life , are like that Glass of Water…
Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And If you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything….!!!”
Remember to put the Glass Down…

My Reminiscence of Laknavaram Lake

March kicked off with an excitement to see complete ROR Boyz together as Prapul is heading back to India for a small visit from Australia, it didn’t stand for a long time as unavoidable circumstances pushed Vamshi to leave early to Australia.
Our initial plan was a trip to Gandikota–>Shimoga–>Mattur–>Badami caves–>Pattadakal–>Aihole–>Dambal–>Hyderabad. Best part of this plan was Camping in Shimoga. But due to the time factor we didn’t stick to our plan. So we changed our plan and went to Laknavaram for Camping. Our day started at 7am, firstly we went to Ramappa temple and spent some time checking its architecture (To know more about the temple you’ve to wait till I post 😉 ) then we headed to Laknavaram lake. We were really amazed to see such a lovely and beautiful place. We didn’t regret at all. Such an awesome experience I say and we discovered an another dimension of this place..

Laknavaram cheruvu or Laknavaram Lake: This Beautifully landlocked lake is located at a distance of 80kms from Warangal and 220kms from Hyderabad. This lake was the discovery of the Great Kakatiya rulers. They spotted this excellent place amidst trees and green hills coiled all around to hold the rainwater. This Spread over 10,000 acres. This lake has 13 tiny Islands which are scattered around the lake making this place blissfully serene

We all were amazed to see such beautiful and natural Landscapes..

Our Camping Experience:

Seriously speaking this experience was far better than camping in goa. This place was very Safe and was more like our private area. Camping on the Lakeshore of Laknavaram with Barbecue, Campfire, Hookah, Alcohol, Music, Beautiful Night view of the Bridge, Cool breezes, Sounds of Rippling waters, Bird’s sounds, Full Moon, Falling Stars and a lot more..We had the best time. The Lake is gorgeous and pristine. Can’t stress how perfect this site is for camping. I just hope it doesn’t become too well known 😉 !

Can't Stress how beautiful this place is...Memories bounded to this place

World Kidney day

The World Kidney day is Celebrated on the second Thursday in March, the mission of this day is to raise awareness of the importance of our Kidneys to our overall Health and to reduce the frequency and impact of Kidney disease and its associated Health problems worldwide.  And there isn’t a better time to learn more about these vital organs.World kidney day

Kidney and its functions:

The major function of the kidneys is to remove waste products and excess fluid from the body. The kidneys are powerful chemical factories that perform the following functions: remove waste products & Drugs from the Body, balance the Body’s fluids, release Hormones that regulate Blood pressure, produce an active form of Vitamin D that promotes Strong & Healthy bones, control the production of Red Blood Cells.

THE 10 GOLDEN RULES:

Kidney Diseases are silent killers, which will largely affect your quality of life. There are however several easy ways to reduce the risk of developing Kidney Disease.
1.Keep fit and active :Keeping fit helps to reduce your BP and therefore reduces the risk of Chronic Kidney Disease.
2.Monitor your Blood Pressure: Although many people may be aware that high Blood Pressure can lead to a Stroke or Heart attack, few know that it is also the most common cause of Kidney damage. The normal Blood Pressure level is 120/80. Between this level and 129/89, You are considered Prehypertensive and should adopt lifestyle and dietary changes. At 140/90 and above, you should discuss the risks with your doctor and monitor your BP level regularly. High BP is especially likely to cause Kidney damage when associated with other factors like Diabetes, High Cholesterol and Cardio-Vascular Diseases.
3.Eat healthy and keep your weight in check: This can help prevent Diabetes, Heart Disease and other conditions associated with Chronic Kidney Disease.
4.Reduce your Salt intake: The recommended Sodium intake is 5-6 grams of Salt per day (around a teaspoon). Large quantities of Sodium can increase BP. High blood pressure damages the Kidneys over time and is a leading cause of Kidney failure.
5.Reducing Sugar intake: : Your Sugar intake can reduce your risk for Diabetes, Obesity and Kidney Disease. If you cut back on the processed Sugars, you’re also likely to lose calories, chemicals and Sodium. Your Waistline and your Kidneys will thank you.
6.Maintain a healthy fluid intake: We should consume atleast 1.5 to 2 litres of Water per day. Consuming plenty of Water helps the Kidneys clear Sodium, Urea and Toxins from the body which, in turn results in a “significantly lower risk” of developing Chronic Kidney disease. In addition, people who have already had a Kidneystone are advised to drink 2 to 3 litres of Water daily to lessen the risk of forming a new stone.
7.Do not smoke: Smoking slows the flow of Blood to the Kidneys. When less Blood reaches the Kidneys, it impairs their ability to function properly.Smoking also increases the risk of Kidney Cancer.
8.Using painkillers for a long duration: Long-term use of certain pain medications, especially at high doses, has a harmful effect on Kidney tissue and structures. Both over-the-counter and prescription pain medications can damage and reduce Blood flow to the Kidneys. Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen are the main culprits.
9.Exposure to contrast dyes commonly used in imaging. It’s important to make sure Your Physicians check Your Kidney function before You undergo any Radiology procedures, such as CT scans, certain X-rays and angiograms. The dyes are injected into your body to complete these tests, can cause serious Kidney problems, including Acute Kidney Injury or AKI (results in an abrupt decrease in Kidney function). Discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before undergoing a procedure.
10.Reduce Your Alcohol intake: Alcohol creates an ionic imbalance in the body that can negatively affect many metabolic processes.

There are six warning signs of kidney disease:

1.High blood pressure.
2.Blood and/or protein in the urine.
3.A creatinine and Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) blood test, outside the normal range. BUN and creatinine are waste that build up in your blood when your kidney function is reduced.
4.A glomerular filtration rate (GFR) less than 60. GFR is a measure of kidney function.
5.More frequent urination, particularly at night; difficult or painful urination.
Puffiness around eyes, swelling of hands and feet.
6.Your kidneys keep the body healthy by regulating blood pressure and filtering out toxins and extra fluid from your blood. Damage to the kidneys is often irreversible.

I hope this will raise an awareness and encourage prevention of Kidney Diseases. Health is Wealth! Stay healthy and take care of your Kidneys and body.
