H1N1 Swine flu

Dr. Deepak Purohit wrote to president of INDIA



I agree with you that swine flu awareness is needed, but there is no need to be panicky and join the publicity propaganda carried out by media and others which acts as a vehicle to spread misconception than to spread scientific information.

These are few facts about swine flu when discussed with the leading epidemiologists.

1) Swine flu, that is H1N1 flu is not new, first detected in 1987

2) Infective stage of flue is 5 days, 1 day before and 4 days after onset of symptoms

3) The best way to prevent it spreading is asking patient having symptoms of flu like fever cough and running nose to take rest at home for 4 days so he does not transmit it

4) Masks are of limited value if any, in this disease, it can spread through droplets on your skin, through contact etc, and I have seen that the masks in Pune are worn as fashion statement, while walking on road today morning I saw people wearing masks coming out for a morning walk with their dogs!, many wearing masks around their necks, and so on, infect these masks shall act as the vehicles to carry the virus, instead, avoiding crowded places or cinema halls or malls where air conditioners are on, is advisable, because you get recalculated air, where the virus density multiplies

5)Death after H1N1 flu is not common, infect infections like measles is taking toll of thousands more every year, and we are oblivious of the facts. Swine flu is being blown out of proportion by media trying to create hysteria among lay people.

6) Fever accompanied by respiratory distress, should be immediately notified which is likely to be a complication of H1N1 flu

7)The mortality is less than .01 percent of those affected, that means may be one in 10,000 affected is likely to suffer the life loss.

8) If you remember, 2 years ago SARS was blown out of proportion, what happened? Humans develop immunity to the virus, the same is going to happen, we develop immunity in due course of time, the virus is in the air, you can not stop it, our body is already developing the immunity so nothing to panic.

We need to take care of children and elderly who have less immunity and do not let them go to crowded places that are all.


I am amazed to hear that people are selling masks of RS 20 each which are available to less than Rupee 1 in the market.

See who is getting benefitted?

Please spread the scientific info, do not join the band wagon and stick to science, that should be the order of the day.

Best Regards

Avoid eating outside, especially road side vendors…

Take extra precaution on children who are more vulnerable to the disease .. even if it is a small symptom, it is best to have a thorough check done .

How to add a favicon in Blogger

To add a favicon you need to have a favicon and there are plenty of ways to create a favicon. If you are planning on using Photoshop then you need to download this plug-in.

If that’s not possible there are plenty of sites out there that generates a favicon for you when you upload an image. Do a Google Search for "free favicon Generator" and plenty of sites would come up.  Set the size ( 16 x 16 ) capture and preview and you get a link to download the favicon.ico file. The whole process want take you five minutes.

I have used this file in Photoshop

Since you cant upload .ico files to blogger you need to find some free image hosting service to use and of course that service should let you upload .ico files .Since your using a service by Google I suggest you use Google page creator which lets you upload .ico files. Then get the link to the favicon file.
I have used fileden which is free service for uploading files

Now go to your blog and click customize. Then click the Edit HT
ML tab and search for "title" , this should be inside the header tags. You should find something like mentioned below.

Just after that line add the following line and enjoy the nice icon showing up before your url.

your url is the url for the ico file

So now Just refresh and check your blog you should have the favicon

Hey this ones for anands blog girl power

Baby Blues

OK a real post after a long time not forwarded ones
Just few days back i spoke to a friend about the antics of my child. and just was thinking how far out this generation is . I never knew what terrorist are at 5. my 5 years old and his same aged friends play terrorist where they are the police who do encounter with the terrorist.
U should see my son pretend to speak on this toy phone "target samne hain". Kill on order.

Was I shocked when i heard that.
I remember playing with my dolls and preparing for their weddings. but this was a far cry from what I expected my kid to do.

Are they growing too fast was my question??
how do we restrict their media exposure even the cartoons 2day are full of violence. and the cartoons translated in Hindi are so pathetic .

It was my fault too a hilarious incident with my friends in my sons presence had such a effect on him i never thought.
it so happened that we i.e. my hubby and some of our friends went for the movie Dostana. my friend has met a new fellow who he gets along well with so he invited that new fellow for movie too. our seats were in different adjacent rows we were a big group so all of us sat with their spouse but that fellow sat with his new friend and his wife sat with us.
after the show his wife and all of us started teasing him about his friend saying that aaj kal he is more with this new friend then his wife. and then when ever we meet them we always ask him about his dostana.
i never thought my son noticed this . so lo and behold after few days janav i.e my son was speaking to his cousins drashya about his friends. drahya who is 5 said that his best boy friend is so and so. on that i was spellbound to hear my son go boyfriend like in dostana.

we bust out laughing but still I was worried of what he has understood of the dostana bit.
