What and Why do I avoid?

  1. Meat
    1. Most farmed animals/birds are treated with antibiotics as per law and that creates immunity against antibiotics
    2. Meat messes with the pronunciation  of certain words (Sanskrit chants) which are a bit hard to pronounce. I face difficulty in pronouncing certain words.
    3. Affects my meditation.
    4. Against my principle 'enjoy your life with least harm or hurt to anyone or anything'
    5. A chicken in a lifetime might eat 20 meal worth of beans or food grains but it will hardly serve one or two when it gets killed. Inefficient way of generating food in a world where many die of hunger
    6. more carbon footprint than vegetable meal
    7. It takes 6-7 times more water to cook a meat meal than a vegetarian meal. In world where people are still dying of lack of good drinking water or farmers committing suicide for lack of water, I can contribute passively by preferring a veg meal instead of meat meal.
    8. It costs more money, more water, more carbon footprint, more grains....I simply cannot justify it to myself
      If in future when science advances and takes away all the above associated factors then I will surely consider consuming it. Yes it tastes good but when compared to the proud feeling that you get when you avoid meat for the above mentioned reasons, the taste of meat is nothing.
  2. Alcohol
    1. unhealthy
    2. A liter of  alcoholic beverage costs upto 17 liters of regular water. When all the beings of this world have enough good water for their consumption then I will consider it.
    3. return on investment or what you get out of it after it wears of can be measured in negative numbers. So it takes more from you than it gives (temporarily) in the long run.
  3. Tobacco
    1. unhealathy
    2. affects others and not just me

Human Perception Ceiling (HPC), external and internal engineering

You might know what is an apple iphone retina display is! Basically it is a ceiling or limitation that apple company had put on the resolution of the screen to match the perception of the eye. Most if not all products today consumed by humans are catered to serve their senses. 5 physical senses and the 6th if you believe in 6th sense. This is about how a saturation and if not an end to external engineering or product development can come sooner or later.
Let us take one example of screens or displays. Below are the most important things in a display when you buy it.

ResolutionRefresh ratecolor reproduction and accuracyResponse time
Check what is the resolution of your phone or screen. You put few phones next to each other with the same picture on display on all of them. Let the resolution of the screens on them be 8k, 4k, Full HD (high definition), HD (High definition). If you do not know it already this is the heirarchy in terms of greatness and quality 8k > 4k>Full HD> HD. …

Why do hindu temples have half naked girls on their temples ???!!!

This was the question which bothered me till I entered high school of a gurukul (ashrama). Usually when you see any famous old hindu temple you will find some pretty young girls who are wearing almost no clothes are carved on the temple. In fact temples in kajuraho & konark have become world famous bcoz of the same reason where you will find almost all the postures of kamasutra including postures of groupsex are on the temple. Any ordinary human being will think that this is disgusting to have such things on the temple which is the place of worship. If sex is so dirty and vulgar then why should we all do it? Let us all stop having sex and soon the entire human race will be extinct. Sex is the source of creation of another living being and creation is the process of the creator the god. God is holy and he creates and does only holy things. God has created us and sex, which leads to creation and the continuity of life. Creation is a godly process (some have mistaken it with having mu…

Male Pattern Baldness (MPB), Hairloss and Red hot chilli pepper

I have a friend who is taking treatment for hailoss and he is spending 3k. He said it has worked for his friends and it should for him too. Many a type of baldness, hairloss especially the Male Pattern Baldness which are a result of DHT or genetic heritage are hard to conceive or cure.
I recently came to know about a rather scary and strange indian remedy known to cure and gradually reverse the baldness. The cure is Red hot Chilli+pepper as an optional add on. You can use the powder of these two with any oil especially coconut oil or even better mix it with raw aloe vera gel (not the aloe vera extract) another great all natural herbal extract and use it as a paste to the affected area, leave it for a while and wash it off. Do it once a week on weekend or when you have time., then take a bath and clean your hair. A shikakai or shikakai based shampoo was recommended to clean your hair after few moments of this paste on your head and of course you have to apply it in such a way that it …
