GIFT---GIFT

A GIFT:
Doctor Pratap a busy practitioner was approached by a medical representative (MR) to prescribe certain product, which had a gift after three months. It was a protein powder used as a tonic for weak pateients.Pratap tried to prescribe as many as possible for his patients whether required or not. After completion of four months doctor was waiting for the gift. One day Pratap observed that his friend Mohan was coming in a red colored new Kinetic scooter. Doctor Pratap was surprised to see the new scooter with a miser friend, who till then was coming to his clinic in a fourteen year old bike!
“How much it cost you”?
“Forty five” he said.
“Nice colour, milage?”
“Fifty”
When the same MR came to doctor Pratap, he confronted him and reminded him about the gift.
“But, sir you have not prescribed a single one?”
Doctor did not argue with the MR and kept quite.
Next day Pratap went to the medicine shop where that product was available. He checked with the pharmacist who said “he was asked to write the doctor’s name as ‘Mohan’ in all the receipt by the said doctor, he was a relative of mine, you see”. That was the last time Pratap prescribed any product keeping in mind of a gift!

EGGS ARE GOOD FOR YOU !

EGGS:

The nutritional values of all the eggs now available in the market are not the same. In our Indian market eggs are kept in open spaces hence degrade fast. The eggs kept out side in open spaces in bright sunlight lose the protein fast. Next time you buy eggs see to it that they are fresh. Keeping old eggs in your fritz does not make them fresh! Boiled eggs are always better than fried eggs or omelette. We produce cholesterol in our body irrespective of how much you eat. Do not blame eggs for your cholesterol. Senior citizen must consume at least three eggs a week if they are not taking mutton, chicken or fish. One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids. The egg is a powerhouse of disease-fighting nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin. It’s your drinking habits and snacks in club and bar which is responsible for your bad lipid profile not eggs!Earlier doctors used to frightened their patients with the hazards of eating eggs now they say just the opposit.

HORSES FOR COURSES


HORSES FOR COURSES:
Why no topper ever said in any interviews that he or she would be the CM of his state or a politician? Because it’s very difficult and need lots of intelligence and presence of mind. Similarly no one says he would be a poet or a writer?
Those people who are shouting and criticizing the politicians are to be blamed first, because these politicians are selected through secret ballot by the people of the state and country. These horses were sent to assembly and parliament by the people not by auction. Hence the so called horse trading is an indirect insult to the people of India. Intellectuals please stop grumbling about the SC verdicts and politician but keep quiet and watch the race. It’s a political game, enjoy it and do not get too much involved in it and invite stress related diseases.
Just think if BJP loses the vote today you will get few lakhs as bet or become a BR?There was a black and white Hindi film by I.S.Johar “Hum Sob Chor Hein”

ALCOHOLISM:

 Alcoholism:
Def: Continued excessive or compulsive use of alcoholic drinks.
But in our society even drinking once in a year is labeled as a ‘ମଦତି’, মাতাল, and alcoholic? Following are the types of drinkers as observed by the author.
1.  Those people when drinks when available free and wife is not around him!
2.  They drink along with a friend who provides him with free food and drinks.
3.  They drink everyday and spoil their liver and pancreas.

    4. They have a desire to drink but fear of wife makes them
                      behave like teetotaler.
    5. No problem, both wife and husband drink together at
       Home or Club. (Living together or working
         Couple, recent phenomenon)
   6. Retired drinkers: Now they are vegetarian and teetotaler
       after stents and bypass surgery or cancer?
If you know about another type, you are welcome to add.

DWARF IDEAS

 DWARF IDEAS:
                                      A highly qualified relative of mine drawing a good amount of pension money after retirement wanted some dwarf varieties of fruit bearing plants at Bhubaneswar. He has no bad habits but to please his wife he ordered for ‘plantain/banana seeds from a reputed American company.
                                       His wife leaked this news to me. “For each seed germinating you would get hundred rupees from me” I said.
                                        He prepared a pot with outmost care with cow dung and good river bed soil and implanted those seeds on 1st of April -2018.He would sprinkle water and covered the pot with a net and watched every day morning for the dwarf seeds to germinate.
He did not lose heart and planted rest of the seeds on 1st May. He is still hopeful the seeds may germinate. Earlier he has tried with dwarf orange seed without success. His wife is fond of banana fruits but alas nobody knows whether he would be able to present his wife with some dwarf fruits during this life or next birth?
When confronted he said “These are experiments, you see, some succeed others fail, that’s science! There is no harm in trying”.
