Someone May Be Dying On A New Year’s Eve – Should We Still Celebrate?

happy-new-year-1116338_960_720

The most tragic thing associated with human beings is the unpredictable nature of death. Every human being is a born mortal but what varies is their time of leaving the earth. Coming to New Year’s celebration, nobody wants to miss it out.

 

We welcome the dawn of 1st January every year in a crazy and frenzied manner. In fact, by way of celebration we express our uttermost joy to thank god for making us alive to witness the day. But at the same time someone may be dying! Will you still celebrate New Year’s Eve and Day?

There is no definite answer to it. It all depends upon your individuality and ability to see other people’s pain. Agreed, someone might be dying or lying on the bed as a terminally ill patient, but should we also join the chorus of loud cries and wallows – forgetting all essence of optimism and positivity surrounding us?

 

We have two choices before us; either considering our life full of suffering, subtracting all happiness, or we should celebrate the magic of life as it comes. As responsible citizens we should aim to maintain perfect balance. Celebration must go on just like human life continuous even after any tragedy or holocaust.

 

Essence of compassion must be within all of us. During New Year’s Eve and parties we must realize the reality that happy moment we are sharing with our family and loved ones is the priceless possession every person wishes to. Human life is short and nobody can predict which day is going to be his or her last, so our focus should be to live life to the fullest.

We can avoid rash driving and firecrackers on New Year’s Eve as a mission to not to trouble others while celebrating the occasion. In order to live a happy and jovial life, we have to subtract the feeling of sadness and uncertainty of life. Even though by thinking more about future –we can only make our present worse.

 

The ideal way to proceed is to celebrate Happy New Year positively with a resolution not to hurt the feelings of the other. If someone in your neighbor or at the other part of the world is breathing his last on New Year’s Eve, then at least pray for their well-being before you begin the celebration. What else can we do? We are not super humans; all of us will reach to same destination one day – death.

 

You must calm your mind and meditate for a few minutes on New Year’s Eve before starting the celebration. It will open your inner eyes and help you realize the pains of people around you. It will make you a generous and compassionate soul.

Always consider every person as someone who is attached to you philosophically even if you don’t know each other and there is a long geographical distance between both of you.

Why Some People Are Left-Handed, While Others Right-Handed?

During our childhood days, we often got fascinated that why a few of our friends did most of their daily activities using their left-hands while most of us used our right hands for those stuffs. It seemed to be a bit of mystery during those days, but latest scientific research and studies have unravelled the same.

In our daily life, we often find people using different hands for their day-to-day activities. Some people are well-versed using right hand for varieties of stuff – around 85 per cent of the people dominantly do so. However, there are still around 15 percent of people who use their left-hands most of the time.

While it seems utterly puzzling from outside, it is very well backed up by scientific research. According to Clare Porac, a professor of Psychology at Pennsylvania State University (USA), “the side of the preferred hand that we use most in our day to day activities depends upon biological and genetic factors”. Evolutionary natural selection produces most of the humans with speech control in the left hemisphere of our brains which also manages the movements of the right hand.

Medically speaking, there are two alleles of a gene at the same genetic location that are associated with handedness; D (Dextal, meaning right) gene and the other allele is a C (denoting chance, since lefties are minority) gene. Most people are born with a larger influence of the D gene based on genetic factors. Scientific research also claimed that being left-handedness could arise out of genetic history too.

Contrarily, C gene is usually found in rare cases. When it is present, people find it easier to do work with left hands. This theory of hand preference causation is often determined by societal pressures and cultural biases as well. Presence of right-handed children in families with left-handed parents and left-handed children in families with right-handed parents are quite normal. We find such cases even in our own surroundings.

Why Lefties are viewed with Suspension?

There is absolutely no rationale behind the theory that why lefties are viewed with suspension? A few decades back, left-handedness was called ‘sinistrality’ for no definite reason at all. The term Sinistrality has originated from Latin word sinistra meaning left but people soon associated it with evilness. Gradually the concept is getting changed now with the advent of rational thinking among the people, but still many people view left-handed people that way.

Historically, the left side has construed to be negative while right side has continued to be viewed as positive. Even the word ‘right’ means correct in itself, while being left suggests that you are on the contrary side.

Some of the people are also well versed with doing things at ease using both hands – this is called ambidextrous ability. Scissors, cameras and computer mouse are made for right handed people hence sometimes left-handed people find it difficult to operate them.

Drinking Water is good for Kidneys – Agree?

kidney

Believe it or not. You can actually eliminate many of your health risks by simply taking adequate amount of water every day. You will be surprised to know that drinking at least 8 to 10 litres of water a day keeps kidney problems at bay. Yes, it is true that water is good for kidneys. Even doctors admit this fact. Drinking enough fluids helps us remove toxins out of our body.

Often, the formation of kidney stones take place inside our body without our knowledge. But, we can actually minimize the risk of such stones and prevent their further proliferation by consuming enough water. In most cases, people who drink water sufficiently pass kidney stones through urine without much pain and problems. The health risks mainly arise when people consume less water without knowing that they may be nurturing a kidney stone.

For this very reason, doctors often advise patients to drink a sufficient amount of water at frequent intervals in order to prevent the formation of kidney stones, while keeping their kidney healthy.

Kidney Stones and Complications: Common Symptoms

You may be having a kidney stone if you encounter the following:

  • Fever and chills
  • Bloody and cloudy urine
  • Constant Pain below ribs for 30 to 50 minutes
  • Painful urination
  • Nausea and vomiting

Types of Kidney Stones

  • Cystine Stones: These are largely formed due to hereditary disorder and genetic problems.
  • Calcium Stones: Calcium oxalate is the most common substance found in Kidney stones. In fact, we consume some amount of oxalate daily as this substance is found in vegetables and fruits. If you have calcium stones in your kidney, then doctor may ask you to avoid food rich in oxalate.
  • Struvite Stones: These types of Kidney stones are mostly found in women. These stones are formed due to UTI or urinary tract infections.
  • Uric Acid Stones: Uric acid is mostly found in protein-rich foods. If your doctor finds uric acid stones inside your kidney, then he may ask you to avoid eating protein rich vegetables and fruits.

Causes of Kidney Stones

Lots of chemical reactions take place round the clock inside our body. Sometimes, risky substances such as urate, calcium, oxalate, phosphate and other chemicals join together forming a minor particle in the form of kidney stones. When it becomes too big, then surgery becomes essential. Smaller stones can easily pass away in urine by consuming enough water and with the help of few doctor prescribed medicines.

Sedentary lifestyle with limited physical work is cited as one of the common reasons for growing kidney problems. Sugar intake should be directly based on our physical activity and body types. Drinking too much soda and overeating are some other reasons leading to the formation of kidney stones. Balanced diet and physical work-outs are easy remedy to stay healthy and disease-free.

Tips to Keep Your Kidneys Healthy

Our first aim should be to keep our kidneys healthy and prevent the formation of stones inside them. Drinking a lot of fluids and producing enough urine is extremely important in this regard. According to National Kidney Foundation, Dallas, Texas, “People reduce their chance of forming kidney stones by 50 percent when they produce around 2 to 3 litres of urine every day.”

Consuming normal food and limited water doesn’t produce adequate amount of urine. We need to drink at least 10 glasses of water every day to produce an optimum quantity of urine. The best idea is to keep sipping plain water at frequent intervals.
