They bring about, a change!

Although the ‘World’ is full of sufferings, it is also full of charitable moments. By virtue, the true religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness. There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though ‘nothing’ is a miracle. The other as though ‘everything’ is a miracle!

Life is a process of becoming a combination of states, we have to go through. “Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it”. This is a kind of death!

Dreams passes into the reality of action and, from the actions itself stems the dream again and this, “interdependence produces the highest form of living”!

We enjoy warmth because we have been cold. We appreciate light because we have been in darkness. By the same token, we can experience “joy” because we have known “sadness”. Sadness flies away on the wings of time. It is sad to grow old but nice to ripen. We can choose to be happy or sad and whichever we choose, that’s what we get. I'm not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn't make us better, then what else on earth, is it……. for?

We ask God to forgive us for our evil thoughts and evil temper but rarely, we had ever asked Him to forgive us for our sadness? “All men have sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on”. It is towards that (sweetness) they turn, when feel too worn out!

People are sometimes wildly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all they still know certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing but it’s the middle that counts the most. No one is really responsible to make someone else happy, no matter what most people have been taught and accepted as ‘truth’. Deliver me from writers who say that way we live doesn't matter.

However long the night, the dawn will break. People just cry over their conditions but when they get angry, they bring about a change”!

Dont let insomnia get the better of your children.

Dont let insomnia get the better of your children.


Heres what you can do if your kid cant seem to get a good nights sleep
It might be the food they eat, or the mounting pressure of studies, but kids are as prone to insomnia as adults. And considering their age, the repercussions can be huge. Take a look at the common reasons that can play havoc with your childs sleep, and take preventive actions.

Beds not right

Even something as basic as a pillow can mean the difference between a good nights sleep and a bad one. For example, a pillow thats too big or bulky can cause children to toss and turn in their sleep.

What to do:
Adult pillows are too big. Young children should start with a flattish, fairly firm pillow to give support to their neck and shoulders, though it should be soft and comfortable too.

If youre not sure what kind of pillow will suit your child best, think about how he/she sleeps? If your child sleeps on his/her back, a medium firm pillow is best while a firm pillow supporting the neck is ideal if s (he) sleeps on the side. A slightly softer pillow is better to cushion children who sleep on their tummies.

Avoid soft goose down or feather pillows; they can be a choking hazard.


It's not dark enough

Darkness triggers the release of melatonin the hormone that brings on sleepiness.

But with kids surroundings now packed with gadgets it may still be too bright, even with the lights out. The rays from a sleeping TV or computer screen can disturb sleep and affect the production of sleep hormones. Watch out for blinking and flashing lights your child can see from bed. Lights of a digital clock are also enough wake them up when they are in a period of light sleep.
What to do:
Turn everything off. Fit a dimmer switch to lower lights gradually.

Check your door and window coverings too to see how much light they let in. Use door snakes or blackout curtains they can really help your child to sleep for longer.

If your child is afraid of the dark, use a moonlight lamp that gives off a calming green glow.

Also try glow-in-the-dark stickers, or give them a bedside torch.

Wrong food

If your child has a big meal just before bedtime, their metabolic rate and body temperature goes up which makes it harder for them to drop off. But being hungry can also keep them awake.

What to do:
Let them have a small bedtime snack about half an hour before bed.

Look for snacks that contain tryptophan, a substance which helps produce the sleep hormone melatonin. These include poultry, bananas, oats and dairy products.

Good snacks include porridge, bananas, yoghurt and muesli.

Avoid giving kids acidic foods like orange juice that can cause heartburn. Rich, creamy or greasy meals too trigger indigestion and gas.

Bedroom issues

Superheroes might be your childs favorites during the day but at night posters and pictures plastered over the walls makes it difficult to switch off.

What to do:
Check if there are any images which might be over-stimulating.

Colors can have a strong influence on moods. Shades like red and hot pinks make it hard for a kid to calm down.

Ideal colors for your childs room are pale shades of pink and green.

Growing pains

Night-time growing pains usually in the thigh or calf muscles are very common in youngsters. Its assumed they are caused when the skeleton grows faster than muscles. Although harmless, the sensation can keep children awake.

What to do:
Try painkillers such as paracetamol or give kids a hot-water bottle.

Massaging legs can also be soothing or you could also seek advice on stretching exercises.

They are too tired

Children who are put to bed too late may be so exhausted that they cant sleep. Instead, they get cranky.

What to do
Try to keep to a consistent bedtime ritual. Sometimes children dont want to go to bed simply because they want to be with you. If you give them quality attention every night, they will accept bedtime more easily.

Dont let them watch TV or play computer games before bed instead of having that special time.

Its the time when secrets come out

A lot of kids are under immense pressure that culminates into thoughts which interfere with the sleeping process. Hence, it is important for parents to be around when their child is going to sleep. The mere presence is a big emotional support. A sweet 'goodnight' can go a long way.

Also, one must not forget that bedtime is the time when all the secrets come out. Having a casual talk with your child at this time will calm him/her down. In the process, children learn to deal with problems that maybe trivial for you, but seem to be of great importance to them.

Moreover, saying a prayer with your child at this time will work wonders for his/her emotional development.

Knowing is better

Built atop an extinct volcano plug, the Buddhist monastery of Taung Kalat is one of the most breathtaking sites in Burma and the world. Many people call the hill on which the monastery was built, Mount Popa, but they’re mistaking it with the much higher volcano, close by. The hill is called Taung Kalat and though it looks like a mere bump when compared to Mount Popa, climbing it is quite a task. There are seven hundred seventy seven steps to from the bottom, all the way to the Buddhist monastery. The locals believe Nats (37 demigod-like beings) live inside Taung Kalat hill and judging by the heavenly views from up there, they just might be right. Climbing up Taung Kalat, you’re bound to run into some adorable Macaques, but be careful, they’re wild creatures and are likely to snatch anything you lay on the ground, before you even have the chance to blink. Taung Kalat Monastery and its surroundings are truly unique, but unless the Burmese government intervenes soon, they will degrade beyond recovery.

May I ask where did you get this information? (bigsmile)

Dear Gazoomartian!
I am a true Professional like you and never go after a hear say! My write-ups are mostly because of my reading habits and a sharp God gifted memory. An ardent believer and practical Muslim. No hatred for people belonging to other religions, sect or creed. Enjoy good understanding with Americans, Jews, Hindus & all men of intellect. Moderate and liberal in approach but, can stretch up to a limit that Islam permits. I often give reference and source of my Articles particularly that are having something Taboo in them. I mostly write at stretch on spur of moment but counter verify my notes and manuscript; I had with me since last 3 decades. Do read OH YOU HINDU by a Hindu Writer who has done PhD and is a lady herself. Similarly, LAW OF DESIRE on a faith practiced in IRAN, written by a PhD Iranian lady (Grand daughter of close confidents of Imam Kumanai). Moreover Books written by Hasnain Haikel earlier a Jew in glorification of our beloved, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Abu-Bakr Siddique (RA) & Umer-e-Farooq (RA) having similar Title are worth reading and written articulately. Ask me the source with a particular reference and Ill come back instantly o reading your note. For swift reply, better send me an E-Mail at [email protected]
