How can I live longer?

A million-dollar question that all of us would have thought about at least once in life! Although thoughts about it used to come, there never was a clear answer ever. However, one of the lectures by someone knowledgeable about Vedas and Puranas seemed to hint an answer. It was an interesting perspective and not about the environment or lifestyle, and it made me wonder about our existence and the purpose behind it. Sharing what I learned thus far…

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose (blood sugar) is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat.

Disruption – small or big?

Is it easy or difficult to disrupt a normal routine? Ask a mother who sends her kids to school in the school bus (need to maintain time) and then rush to office to be on time! Yes.. one day waking up few minutes late can cause a huge disruption in itself for a single family.. what about organizations and countries? When my son asked me about it.. I started thinking about how disruptions can grow in size pretty quickly and especially for areas that are really unpredictable.

How do 10 year olds think these days?

When I was growing up, focus used to be on studies and play. When my children were growing up, focus was on studies and extra curriculars – not necessarily play. Amidst all the subjects and theory, there has and will always be a good amount of applied knowledge that one needs! I am a true believer of this. I was pleasantly surprised to see how some of the elementary schools in a few states were teaching new subjects. Sharing what I learned and how I felt…

Lichens on trees in the yard

Seeing green patches on my trees, I checked with Home Depot if there was something wrong with the trees and if they were infected! I did not get a proper response. I was told to just mulch and wait for it to go away! No product, no solution to treat it, not even sure what was it. So, I let it be for a few years. Then, I found out it was Lichens growing on my trees 🙂 Now, my curiosity was triggered!

AgroTech business showing growth potential

I heard the term Agro Tech a few years back and wondered what is the big deal about technology in Agriculture.
