[] 7 Ways To Put A Smile On Somebody Else's Face


1. Write an encouraging note to others that have encouraged you or that need encouragement. Handwritten notes that are given to encourage, not just for thanking someone for a gift, are rare. That makes handwritten notes even more special. Start a new practice of sitting down and writing an encouraging note on a regular basis. You just might start an epidemic!
2. Take a friend out to lunch or invite her to your home for a meal. You will get to know each other even better than you do right now. If you feel like being more adventurous, throw a party for several of your friends and put smiles on a multitude of faces.
3. Give someone an inspirational book to read. You will feel good doing it, reading the book will change the person, and they will think of you every time they read it.
4. Ask a friend or relative if you can take care of their kid(s) for a day or evening. If you have been a parent, you know the value of being able to have a few hours of `adult time` without worrying about the children. Don't wait to be asked to baby-sit when it is required. Offer to do it at a time when the parent can do something fun and relaxing.
5. Deliver a meal to someone you know that is sick or having a rough time. We have all been sick and know the last thing you want to do is be out of bed. There are also times when life is tough and it is hard to do all of the daily chores. You can be a tremendous help by providing a meal that can be
6. Volunteer time to supporting your local prayer hall or temple. Every minute you dedicate to charity or temple will cause many smiles. You will put a smile on the face of each leader just for helping without being asked. You will also be putting smiles on the faces of those that are being helped through the organization.
7. Thank everyone that supports you throughout the day. The list of those that you come in contact with is endless. Remember family and friends, secretaries, co-workers, teachers, Sunday school teachers, pastors, store employees, janitors, gas station attendants, those that deliver your mail and newspaper, and servers at restaurants.

Re: [] കൊളസ്ട്രോള്‍ ( ബബ്ലൂസ് നാരങ്ങയോ അതോ ഗ്രേപ് ഫ്രുട്ടോ ?)


Dear friends,
it seems there is a confusion among the citrus varieties; The botanical family name is rutaceae and genus-citrus:
The so called bambloos naranga is pamelo fruit, also called as shaddock (citrus Maxima), big in size, available in the tropical and sub-tropical regions
Our odichukuthi naranga is known as persian limes, similar to grapefruit, another variety of average size, but used for curries, pickles and mermelades
Mosambi fruit average in size, is generally used in the middle east (now available in india) is widely used for making juice.
Grape fruit (citrus paradisi) is a hybrid variety, first bred in barbados ( known as the forbidden fruit)
All lime varieties have more or less the same medicinal properties...
So use at least one fruit per day, let it be any citrus variety..
all the best..

May God Bless the Humanity
Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you.

Dear friend,
Egyprian orange is different and is very tasty too.
Grape fruit is same as "babloos naaranga" ( ബബ്ലൂസ് നാരങ്ങ ) in Kerala, especially central Kerala ! This has got a typical bitter taste unlike oranges ... In Kerala, it will be bigger with yellow or red pods inside, but the typical grape fruit we get in middle east is slightly smaller , but with red inside pods. (ചുവന്ന അല്ലികള്‍ ) .....Both taste the same......
with regards,
May all the worlds be happy. May all the beings be happy.

Re: [] method of making neelabhringadi oil


This oil is used to combat hair loss, dandruff and other hair problems and uses coconut oil as its base. It is intended specifically for women as an overnight treatment and, according to Ayurvedic principles, should be used every night for a period of six months. The oil is also believed to induce relaxation and restful sleep. The oil is easy to make at home and many of the ingredients are available in the grocery store or through online retailers.

Step 1

Combine all of the Ayrvedic herbs in the interior pot of a small double boiler. Fill the outer pot with one inch of water and set the pot with herbs inside. Do not turn on the heat.

Step 2

Heat the coconut milk in a separate pot until just before boiling. Pour the coconut milk over the herbs. Cover the pot and let sit for two hours.

Step 3

Add the oils to the pot of herbs. Turn the heat on high until the liquid inside the double boiler comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer.

Step 4

Stir the oils and let simmer for two to three hours. Do not allow the oil to boil.

Step 5

Remove the pot from the heat and allow it to cool. Pour the oil through a strainer into a clean ceramic container.

Step 6

Add the strained oil back to the double boiler. Heat the oil on low for another 30 minutes to remove any moisture.

Step 7

Let the oil cool and pour it into an air-tight container. Store it in the refrigerator for up to six months.


  • Allow the oil to heat to room temperature, or warm it slightly in the microwave, before applying it to your hair. Part your hair into sections and apply the hair to the scalp and roots, and work the oil through the hair to the ends. Cover your pillow with a towel to protect your bedding.


  • Small double boiler
  • Small sauce pan or pot
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • Ayurvedic Herbs
  • 1 tbsp amla powder
  • 1 tbsp ground fenugreek leaves
  • 1 tbsp hibiscus
  • 1 tbsp ground bhangra leaves

  • ¾ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp sweet almond oil
