A circus owner runs an ad for a lion tamer and two people show up.
One is a retired golfer in his late sixties and the other is a gorgeous blond in her mid-twenties.
The circus owner tells them, “I’m not going to sugar coat it. This is one ferocious lion. He ate my last tamer so you two had better be good or you’re history. Here’s your equipment –chair, whip and a gun. Who wants to try out first?”
The girl says, “I’ll go first.” She walks past the chair, the whip and the gun and steps right into the lion’s cage. The lion starts to snarl and pant and begins to charge her. About halfway there, she throws open her coat revealing her beautiful naked body. The lion stops dead in his tracks, sheepishly crawls up to her and starts licking her feet and ankles. He continues to lick and kiss her entire body for several minutes and then rests his head at her feet.
The circus owner’s jaw is on the floor. He says, “I’ve never seen a display like that in my life.” He then turns to the retired golfer and asks, “Can you top that?” The tough old golfer replies, “No problem, just get that lion out of there.”

Utterly Butterly Important:
Bharat Ratna for Amul’s founder Dr Verghese Kurien
There is a spontaneous demand from ordinary Indians for a Bharat Ratna for India’s milkman Dr Verghese Kurien, who passed away recently at the age of 90. Here are 10 reasons why India must recognize this Bharat Ratna officially. India talks socialism and pays lip service to poverty alleviation. But when it comes to the highest civilian award for exemplary service—we do not adequately recognise the work of this giant individual who transformed lives in rural India.Verghese Kurian, gave up his home state of Kerala to build a unique milk cooperative movement, which transformed the lives of millions of poor rural Indians. He make them self-sufficient. He empowered women. He eradicated poverty in a pocket of India. But thats not all. In Amul, he built one of the biggest brands in India. One that we are all proud of. 10 Reasons Why Dr Verghese Kurien Deserves A Bharat Ratna 1. His breadth of vision was stunning; no matter how familiar we may be with it: transforming India from a milk-deficit country to the world’s largest milk producer and doing it through the cooperative route so that women and small farmers were empowered and found an additional source of revenue to augment their farm income. 2. In doing so he brightened the future of a millions of children by ensuring they had access to milk when they needed it the most, in their childhood. 3. Operation Flood or the white revolution worked, not because it was a social experiment, but because of Dr Kurien’s shrewdness and strategic vision in creating a national marketing machine that matched the best multinationals in wits. 4. It also worked because he built Amul into one of India’s biggest brands since independence. Its mascot, the Amul girl has charmed the nation for half a century. 5. Dr Kurien had the ability to recognize and nurture the finest talent and give them room to deliver—he did this with its advertising agency, to create the iconic outdoor campaign which the “utterly butterly delicious Amul” tagline that comments on everyday events. 6. In building Amul, Dr Kurien demonstrated that efficiency isn’t dependent on profit motive alone as is the modern belief. Because he remained unaffected by the mountain of money that he controlled in the 1970s and 1980s—over Rs 2,000 crore in liquid cash at one stage. 7. Importantly, Dr Kurien’s genius at Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) and the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) and the creation of an iconic brand in Amul happened in a closed and highly restrictive economy. 8. India has no other brand of a similar stature even from the private sector in the 30 years since Amul or even in the 20 years after economic liberalization. 9. History will remember Dr Kurien as India’s real Bharat Ratna because no individual has impacted Indian lives the way he did in the last 50 years. 10. By giving Dr Kurien the recognition that he richly deserves, the government will demonstrate that our highest civilian award goes to a person who has truly lived up to the socialist ideals that India embraced at independence.

Kidneys are two small bean shaped organs, each about the size of the fist, located on either side of the spine just above the waist at the small of the back. It is a part of the urinary system. Each kidney is about 10cm long, 5-6cm wide, 2.5cm thick and weighs between 115 to 170g in the adult human. The right kidney is situated slightly lower than the left because the liver pushes it down.
The outer portion of the kidney called cortex is composed of blood vessels and urine tubes and is supported by a fibrous matrix. Deep to the cortex lies the medulla which is divided into 10-20 conical regions called renal pyramids. Renal pyramids also known as the malphighian pyramids contains the secreting apparatus and tubules. Each pyramid together with the associated overlying cortex forms a renal lobe.
The tip of each pyramid (called a papilla) empties into a calyx, which empties into the renal pelvis. Pelvis forms a small reservoir for urine produced by the kidney. The whole kidney is covered by a membrane called renal capsule.
The cortex and the medulla are made up of nephrons, which is the most basic functional units of the kidney and each kidney contains about a millions of nephrons. Filtration, re-absorption and secretion of the blood occurs in the nephron. Each nephron is made of a glomerulus and a tubule. The glomerulus is like a miniature filtering or sieving device while the tubule is a tiny tube like structure attached to the glomerulus.
The kidneys regulate the body’s fluid volume, mineral composition and acidity. The vital function of kidneys is to separate urea, mineral salts toxins and other waste products from the blood. They preserve water, salt and electrolytes; controls the level of chemicals like sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, sulfate, phosphate and hydrogen. In addition to this, kidneys release three important hormones. They are Erythropoietin (EPO) which stimulates the bones to make red blood cells, Renin which regulates blood pressure and Active form of vitamin D which helps to maintain calcium for bones and for normal chemical balance in the body.
The waste products are generated in the body from normal metabolic processes including the breakdown of active tissues, ingested foods, and other substances. To separate these waste and extra water, the blood enters the kidney through the renal artery, creates urine, which flows to the bladder through tubes called ureters. The clean blood flows back to other parts of the body. This process takes place throughout the life of the kidneys. The kidneys process about 200 liters of blood every day and produce about 2 liters of urine. For maintaining life at least one kidney must function properly.
When the kidneys become diseased or damaged, they lose their ability to perform their vital functions. As a result, waste products and excess fluids build up in the blood, become toxic and damage the body. This may cause a variety of symptoms, particularly swelling of the hands and feet, shortness of breath, and a frequent urge to urinate.
Most kidney disease attack the nephron and destroy them which cause to lose their filtering capacity. Diabetes and high blood pressureare the most common cause of kidney disease. Injury, exposure to toxins and certain medications and trauma can lead to kidney disease.
If the blood supply to the kidneys is reduced considerably from blood loss, a fall in blood pressure, severe dehydration or lack of salt, then the kidneys may be damaged. This may lead to permanent damage to the kidney tissue.
Kidney (Renal) failure occurs when the kidneys partly or completely lose their filtering ability. Acute and Chronic are the two types of Renal failure. When kidney failure happens suddenly it is called Acute renal failure. Chronic renal failure usually develops slowly, with few signs or symptoms in the early stage. Mild kidney disease is often called renal insufficiency.

If any of the following symptoms are noticed, do not avoid it. Consult a physician to know the cause of the symptoms.
1. Changes in Urination

SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE EXERCISE PLEASE TRY
The essence of the exercise is that your “Eyes Must be Closed” when you are doing this exercise.
You must practise the “Jin Ji Du Li” exercise with the eyes closed.
Here is the exercise:
Stand on one leg while your eyes are closed.
That is all. Just try it right now, stop reading and stand up, close your eyes and try standing on one foot.
If you are not able to stand for even 10 seconds, it means that your body has degenerated to 60 to 70 years old level in other words, you may be only 40 years old, but your body has aged a lot faster.
I tried this exercise myself when I read the mail. I thought “It’s no big deal, I’m sure I can do this easily”
I was fooling myself, I’m glad I tried it because I discovered, much to my surprise, that while I could stand easily on one foot with my eyes open; trying the same thing with my eyes closed was another story!
I just could not keep my balance for more than two to three seconds before I started wobbling and hopping around.
You do not need to lift your leg high, if your internal organs are out of synch, even lifting your leg this bit will make you wobble.
These Chinese are really very advanced in their knowledge of the human body.
It was very heartening to know that frequent and regular practice can help you recover your sense of balance.
In fact Chinese specialists suggest daily practice of Jin Ji Du Li for 1 minute, this helps prevent dementia.
You can try slightly closing both eyes while practicing Jin Ji Du Li, instead of completely closing them; in fact this is what the health specialist Zhong Li Ba Ren recommends.
Daily practice of Jin Ji Du Li, can help in healing many illnesses or diseases like
· High Blood Sugar or diabetes,
· Neck and Spinal diseases,
· it can also prevent you from getting dementia.
