Every child is born with an imagination power. It is the part of adults and parents to nurture their child’s imagination which in-turn will help kids to create new thoughts and things. Firstly imagining about something and then creating the new thing is how a kid learns. Creativity is the key to new inventions.
Nowadays in almost all pre-schools and schools you will find kids given time for art and craft work. But what if parents at home don’t put efforts to expand the creativity power of the kids, they won’t be that active in school then. Creativity gives great opportunities for learning and also helps in overall development of your kid. Making your kid indulge in creativity you will find a higher level of smartness, activeness and intelligence in your kid. When children participate in creative play with vehicles, toys, blocks, waste boxes or cardboards, etc. they gain self-confidence and a feeling of accomplishment that they did a great job of creating and inventing new things on their own.
Presently living in the world of technology and advanced games, it is becoming difficult to divert your kids from the devil electronic gadgets. They hardly go out to play or use their powerful brain for imagination and creativity. I still cherish the memories of my childhood days where I used to spend my spare time in solving puzzles, making utensils from mud, using empty matchboxes to make new showpieces or making crafty things according to the instructions given, etc. But, looking at the kids of today’s generation I feel like they are far from all this. So, thinking about the future of our kids, it’s essential to put efforts in moving our kids towards the right direction.
So, keeping in mind about the benefits of creativity and the fun and joy involved in it for kids, PediaSure has come up with an amazing idea by designing a fun-filled activity inside their boxes.
PediaSure is a nutritional supplement which provides complete and balanced nutrition to a growing kid. It is packed with 37 nutrients that help support a child’s growing height, weight, immunity and brain development and also all essential energy requirements. But what is even more amazing is the packing that PediaSure is offering now. With its Fun and Learn DIY activity box, it is a great way of building that creativity spark in your child.
Since we know if the root of the tree is strong, the tree will definitely grow strong and healthy. Likewise, if the seed of creativity is sown in your child right from childhood they will be great innovators in the future.
Kairali Ayurvedic : healing through old traditions but with new innovative products
How kairali Ayurvedic products and therapies are inspired by Ayurveda.
Life is 1% what happens to you and 99% how you respond to it” is a famous saying and this is what Ayurveda believes. The word Ayurveda means ‘Life-Knowledge’. Ayurveda is said to be the ancient theory through which the Ayurvedic medicines where made by our ancestors. If you are staying with your Grand Parents especially Grand Mother you must be aware of Ayurveda and its benefits. When you or your Parents fall sick, the first thing Grand Mother will suggest is the Ayurvedic remedy because she is aware of its benefits and knows it really well that though Ayurvedic treatment might take some time in providing relief but it cures your illness permanently whether it is constipation, cough cold, fever or any other normal illness. Even today for illness of such types I myself prefer Ayurveda. So I think when our Ancestors can trust Ayurveda then why not we as today’s generation can have same trust on it…?. The great thing about Ayurveda and Ayurvedic medicines is: it always gives side benefits and no side effects.
History of Ayurveda
Ayurveda is 5000 year old and one of the oldest forms of medicine originated from India. Ayurvedic medicine focuses on wellness and health by blending the body, mind and spirit. Its main motive is to promote good health, not fight disease. There are many health benefits of Ayurveda which helps cures your illness without spending enough money. An Ayurvedic Treatment mainly focuses on the daily routine of human being like the amount of healthy food you eat, the execise or yoga, pranayam you do, at what time you sleep and gets up, etc. But today’s generation who are busy with the hush and bush of life hardly pay attention to such terms and completely neglects it thus living an unhealthy and stress life. They hardly have time for Ayurvedic treatments and to follow its remedial procedures, they want quick relief for whatever they are suffering from whether it is cough-cold, fever or headache etc. But this is not good for present generation as well as for the future one. I am not saying being in 21st century depend completely on Ayurveda but should not neglect it fully.

Mumbai and summer seem to be synonyms to me now. Every Mumbaikar would relate with me when I say summers are like bread toasts on pan. It’s mid-May and we are struggling to beat the heat. Being a microbiologist, I know that summers are best temperature for microorganisms to grow fast and hence we tend to fall sick more. I am going through the same phase right now, because eating outside made me sick but as an adult, we can handle the situation. But what about our kids? Are they ready for summer? Have you made plans on how to make summer friendly for children? Are you making amazing summer drink for kids. I am sure you must have made all possible arrangements to make this summer cooler but with so many activities to distract them, food is never their priority. And since they aren’t receiving enough nutrition, they become more prone to diseases.

Cochlear Implant Surgery in India – Boon to hearing impaired people because #HearingMatters
Imagine a world without sound, no chirping of birds, no sound of flowing water, or no whistle of a cool breeze! How does it feel? Awkward, right? Now imagine a world without car-horns, crackers, honking, shouting and annoying voices. How does it feel? Heavenly, right? Now imagine a person who is born without the ability to hear and is unable to listen to both the pleasant and the annoying sounds. It does make a huge difference to that person, doesn’t it? The importance of listening can only be understood by the person who is hearing-impaired. What if I say you that Cochlear implant surgery can be boon to hearing impaired children or people who have profound sound loss. Thanks to Cochlear India for making me aware of this.
Recently I got a chance to meet a brave, optimist and a very talented 11-year-old boy who was born with profound hearing loss. Currently studying in Class 6th at the Balmohan Vidyamandir, Divyesh Indulkar now lives like a normal child, and show his talent to the world like any other child. Thanks to the unilateral Cochlear implant surgery he underwent at the age of 1.8 years at Hinduja Hospital by Dr. Milind Kirtane .
Divyesh’s parents who too were hearing-impaired from birth had a gut feeling that he too might be afflicted with hearing loss. And as fate would have it, their worst nightmares turned out to be true. After 5 months of Divyesh’s birth, his parents realized that he too was born with the hearing-impaired condition, since he was unable to respond to any of the sounds around him. All hell broke loose on Divyesh’s parents as the very thought of seeing their beloved son tread the same path like theirs gave them sleepless nights. The pain of seeing Divyesh go to a school for the hearing-impaired and communicating in sign language with others seemed like a repeat telecast of what they had been through all their lives.
There’s a saying, ‘Not all superhero wear capes’, so in such a situation Divyesh’s maternal aunt Chitra aka the superhero of the house, who had seen her sister her entire life without uttering a word, decided that Divyesh would not endure the same path like her sister. Therefore, she took him to a paediatrician to get him treated, after which certain tests were recommended. The tests revealed that Divyesh had profound hearing loss. Chitra was then educated about Cochlear Implant surgery at Hinduja hospital and how Cochlear implantees lead a normal life after the implantation. Divyesh was operated at the age of 1.8 and after 1.5 years of continuous therapy Divyesh was able to distinguish between the sound of a falling glass and the sound of a falling spoon. This was when the doctors started his speech therapy thereby enabling him to communicate. Divyesh loves to call himself ‘Shivba’ since he was born on Shiv-Jayanti.
Everything written above may seem to be simple for some people but Divyesh’s family had to go through tremors of financial and psychological setbacks every time they saw Divyesh not performing inspite of the effective therapy. But nature always pays of if you do hardwork to achieve something. In this case her aunt and Divyesh’s maternal grandparents stood up like giant tree to make Divyesh live normal life. It was Divyesh positive attitude right from birth to accept what comes to him.
divyesh’s best hobby -playing tabla
divyesh’s cochlear implant
Unlike his parents, Divyesh was lucky to get an implant at a very early age and now lives life-like a normal child. Divyesh is now a master at playing the Tabla and that’s been possible only because of the Cochlear Implant surgery. Is it a miracle or an irony of life? I don’t know! Such is Divyesh’s optimism that he dreams of becoming a pilot. He also does a lot of mono acts and dramas on stage. He loves to dance and has been featured in many Marathi ads and has also hosted many live shows at schools for the hearing impaired.
After seeing his family, I feel that we need to make other people aware of Cochlear Implants and its importance for hearing-impaired people. Many people take life as it is gifted to them, and don’t want to change for better. I have seen many cases where parents didn’t bother to take their children for the therapy sessions even after a successful cochlear implant. Therapy sessions are an important part of the Cochlear Implant as both go hand-in-hand. Avoiding therapy sessions post the implant would leave the child with speech disorder. The pain of seeing one’s child go through all the stress is a psychological setback for every parent but one must always remember that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
“Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.” by Jack Ma, Co-founder, Alibaba Group
A Cochlear Implant does the work of a human ear, but what teaches the child to speak and comprehend are the exercise and practice sessions with the therapist. Cochlear Implant is a boon to the soundless world.
Factors responsible for hearing loss:
Infections during pregnancy
Lack of oxygen at the time of birth
Listen to audio at high levels
Head or ear injury
Measles, meningitis, mumps or ear infections
High blood pressure
Who can get a Cochlear Implant?
People or children who have moderate to high profound sensorineural hearing loss (more than 50% hearing loss to 100% loss)
Cases where hearing aids are no longer helpful.
In cases with congenital hearing loss, early intervention is advised, especially for kids below 10 years as most of the brain development happens by the age of 10. Kids learn early and that’s why an early intervention with a Cochlear Implant is beneficial for a child’s growth.
Understanding what a Cochlear Implant is –
Cochlear Implant is an electronic device which is used for medical purpose that does the work of damaged parts of the inner ear (cochlea) to provide sound signals to the brain. It’s not a normal hearing aid that amplifies sound. Instead Cochlear Implants bypasses the damaged hair cells of the cochlea to provide sound signals to the brain.
How does a Cochlear Implant works?
A sound processor (for instance, the Nucleus 6 processor that Divyesh wears) worn behind the ear captures sounds and turns into digital sound code. The sound processor has a battery that gives power to the entire system and is easy to charge and clean as per your need.
The sound processor then transmits the digitally coded sound through the coil on outside of your head to the implant that’s surgically placed just below it, on the outside of the skull.
The Cochlear Implant transform the coded sound of digit into electrical impulses and transfer to the electrode array which is fixed in the cochlea.
The implant electrode stimulates the hearing nerve which then sends the impulses to the brain where they are converted into sound.
Facts and stats related to Cochlear implant surgery
A recent survey by WHO shows that over 466 million people live with disabling hearing loss. Hearing loss can be avoided and its impact reduced. Unless action is taken by 2030 there will be nearly 630 million people with disabling hearing loss and the figure could soar up to 900 million by 2050, which means, that nearly one in every ten people will have hearing loss. In India Neonatal tests or Newborn screening is given very less importance, which leads to late detection of newborn defects. As a parent, its difficult to accept that your child can be born with defects. But faster you accept , early you can start its treatment. This is exactly why it’s important to educate people about cochlear implants and raise awareness about disabling hearing loss.

Water is renewable source of energy, only if you save for future life. Water is life. In fact water is that precious diamond which we can’t afford to loose at any cost. Water is we and we are water, I am not wrong in saying this, as our human body consist of up to 60% of water. It is must for everyone to live on Earth. Water plays a very important role in everybody’s life, right from opening eyes to closing eyes. We start our day in the morning with water till going to the bed, you need water.

On a planet like Earth where Global warming is increasing with a jet speed and in the big cities with over populated people, creating pollution which is directly affecting potability of water especially for drinking. Major Concern is about the purity of both surface and groundwater. This is a growing issue because as the population grows, it becomes more important to understand how to manage the use of water and to drink and get pure water. What if people misuse water and makes more impure water, we wont have potable water. Because of its impurity and contamination , a day will come when people on Earth will have scarcity of water.
There is no planet like Earth which is both rocky and having flowing water. Without water, we cannot even dream of life. Although our planet has wide lakes , vast oceans and rivers but the amount of freshwater is about a small fraction. Since we all know clean drinking water is a necessity to make sure hygiene because there is rapid growth of number of ailments and diseases due to impure drinking water. You cannot all the time rely on mineral water so here is the need of Best Water Purifier for home in India .
