Drink more water

In summer literate drinking is especially important. When the weather is hot the human body loses more moisture with sweat. In order to normalize the water balance, it is necessary to drink at least 1.5-2 liters of liquid every day. It can be ordinary water, green or herbal tea or water with lemon. Ask your partner to cooperate: this way both of you will be healthy and neither will forget about your special diet.

Adjusting to drink more water is not always easy, but necessary. Start the day with a glass of water - this method awakens our metabolism and helps us wake up. Drink some water half an hour before each meal. Download a special application that reminds you that you need to drink another glass of water.

Eat vegetables, fruits and berries

Everyone knows that seasonal fruits are the most useful for our health. Do not miss the unique opportunity to saturate the body with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which are found in huge quantities in summer vegetables, fruits and berries. Eat them every day: add to useful salads, use as a snack, replace the usual desserts, cook smoothies. Such a diet will increase the body's defenses, cheer up, and drive fatigue away.

Give up fatty foods

The time when you needed to lean on fatty and nutritious food to keep warm and to charge the body with energy has passed. According to statistics, in summer a person spends less energy: at least one does not need to warm up constantly, as we do during cold winters. In this regard, the need for high-calorie food disappears. During the hot season, on the contrary, it becomes difficult our body to process fatty foods, which becomes the cause of stomach severity and constant fatigue. However, keep consuming useful fats, which do not make your stomach feel heavy. Fish and seafood, olive oil, nuts, avocado, seeds contain such useful fats.

Do not forget about soups

Summer is not a reason to refuse soups and forget about them until the next cold season. Soups are different: just replace chilly soup and cheese soup with gazpacho and okroshka. These cold summer soups will help you add more vitamins and minerals to your diet, normalize the water balance and simply cheer you up. Experiment with recipes and try new gastronomic combinations. Add more useful vegetables, greens and spices to summer soups. Such a diet will make your body feel completely delighted.

Have small amounts

In summer, it is worth refusing lavish breakfasts, lunches and dinners and concentrating not on quantity, but on the quality of food. Eat in small amounts and choose the most nutritious foods, yet light and low-calorie ones that satiate quickly and cope with hunger. Such products are easy digested, so that our body does not spend all its energy on digesting process, which consequently saves energy for more exciting activities: cycling, volleyball, and swimming.

Give up alcohol

It is better to abstain from alcoholic beverages in summer, even if your health is at an altitude. During the hot season, it is difficult for our body to process alcohol without harm: we experience intoxication of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, kidneys and the organism as a whole. Not to mention another danger: the heart and blood vessels cannot withstand such a load in summer.

In addition, alcohol provokes dehydration, which is so harmful in summer, when the body is already losing a lot of moisture. Have some aromatized water, smoothies and other tasty nonalcoholic rinks.

Time to bring work culture back

24 Sep 2014 - 10:10pm | Daya Nath Singh

The Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi had expressed his views on the importance of 'healthy work culture' in the Harijan newspaper of 15th October,1938, emphasizing on hard work by the people of the country for attaining the goal of freedom. He dared to declare that 'declaring his birthday as a holiday should be treated as a cognizable offence'. This was a clear indication that the 'Great Soul' was confident of the might of his people, which later on succeeded in bringing freedom to the country. His experiments on Swadeshi movement brought good results. But it seems that the present situation has completely changed the whole thing and Mahatma’s dreams are shattered.

Unfortunately, with his assassination on January,30,1948, his ideals and teachings were thrown out in the wilderness by the people whom he trusted most.. His followers used his name, teachings and ideals for making wealth and property by playing politics. His soul might have felt ‘tremendous pain’ on the day the Government of India declared his birthday, the 2nd October, as a National Holiday. This decision, ignoring the Great Soul’s wishes, was great dishonor to him. Since that day the ruling parties in the country started distancing from his ideals. No doubt they kept crying for Gandhian philosophy and remembering his ideals at every critical times. Ignoring his sentiments and ideals for long sixty seven years, efforts are on to underplay his teachings and increasing holidays from time to time, with intention to make the people idle by reducing their working capability. It is only in India, where maximum holidays are allowed. The practice of demanding more and more holidays in the industries and offices are continuing regularly. It is unfortunate, when the country needs more work for development and prosperity, our people demand more holidays. More holidays means reduction in working capability of our people. On the one hand, when there is necessity for hard work due to economic globalization to counter the challenges of multinational organizations; our country prefers reducing working ability of our people.

Whereas there is necessity of increasing ‘work culture’ to bring the country at par with developed nations, the tradition of increasing holidays at work places leads to reducing working potential of our people. Politicians and trade unions are equally responsible for this sort of affairs. Mere slogans cannot lead the nation on the path of progress. It needs hard work and foresightedness in planning. Development needs more hard work and fewer holidays. Developed nations increase production by reducing holidays and increasing working hours to increase per capita working capability. In Indian politics there is a ‘conspiracy’ going on to reduce capability of our people. Power hungry politicians having interest in multinational companies are busy to get the benefit out of this practice.

Our trade union leaders ‘mislead’ the workforce over various issues demanding to keep their leadership alive. It is unfortunate; these leaders demand more holidays and other benefits instead of encouraging the workers to increase production, so that the industry is compelled to pay them more. Due to high illiteracy and lack of right understanding, exploitation of workforce is continuing in the country. Working force fail to understand whether their prosperity depends on more work or on holidays. Government of India has adopted the policy of five days working in a week, which ultimately leads to delaying disposal of works. Not only this, out of 365 days of year, about 25 National, 104 Sundays and Saturdays, besides 65 privilege leaves, casual and medical leaves, provisions are already there. In this way about 200 days of the year a worker enjoys as holidays.

The state governments on the other hand declare a few local and festival holidays in addition to all these. Another fact that shows that the ‘bandh culture’ has spread in the country at large scale on various issues and petty matters..Any organization gives a bandh call and it is found that the people give good response to that and enjoy extra holidays. As much misuse and negligence of human resources is done in India, nowhere in the world one can find. Several small nations have attained their position in the developed countries because of proper use of human resources and our  India is lagging behind even after 67 years of independence.. It is not enough to pay homage to the Great Soul by putting flowers on his Samadhi from time to time. It is time to follow his ideals and make the country self sufficient in the fields of agriculture and industries, which can provide work for all and prosperity for the country. With the change of the guards at the top of the country under the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the people seem to have respite as he has promised all-round development of the country. The time is awaited to see the result.

Akhil vs APSC: New revelations

1 Jul 2015 - 8:18pm | AT News

Amid his unrelenting crusade against Assam Public Service Commission, Akhil Gogoi demanded forensic test of the answer sheets of five candidates which would reveal the real picture of the rampant corruption in the ACS examination.

Addressing a press conference in Guwahati on Wednesday, the RTI activist claimed that the five candidates who are shown to have obtain good marks resorted to a murkier deal with the top officials of the commission to ensure their selection.

“Those who bribed were given the question papers in the preliminary round beforehand for Rs 10 lakh and some others were given their answer sheets back after the examination for correction,” said Gogoi.

Producing the photocopies of some answer scripts procured through RTI, the KMSS leader further alleged that many brilliant candidates were not given due marks only to ensure the selection of those who bribed a section of top officials.
