Petrol Price Rise: Modi HATERS do NOT Mislead the Nation!!

Standard

Courtesy : An Oil Industry Expert

Under UPA, when crude oil prices averaged $132 per barrel in July 2008 (it was during that month Brent reached a historic high of $147/b) petrol price was just Rs. 50.62 per litre. Today when oil price is around $80/b, petrol price has reached a high of Rs. 76.57 per litre in Delhi. On the surface it looks like Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been citizen unfriendly. NO.

Natural for anyone to think that when international prices have fallen (by $52/b, 2008 versus 2018), petrol prices in India should also fall. But it has not. It is this simplistic, non-expert thinking which must have impelled or provoked the former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram to tweet that Modi can easily cut petrol price by Rs. 25. However, when we analyse the factors behind the petrol price movement, one will wonder how a responsible leader can mislead the country. It is shocking.

NDA was lucky that soon after it came to power oil prices fell. It wisely decided not to pass on all the benefits to consumers. It increased excise taxes on petrol in small doses from Rs. 9.48 per litre to current rate of Rs. 19.48 per litre and for diesel it was from Rs. 3.56 per litre to 15.33 per litre.

Chidambaram must be aware that under his government policy the public sector oil companies (Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum) were bleeding. He must also be knowing that their irrational pricing policies forced private sector oil companies like Reliance, Essar and Shell to close down their thousands of stations. Their stations were far more efficient than the ones operated by the public sector giants. In addition, the so-called “under recoveries” (in simple term losses) by the public sector companies were reaching stratosphere. In 2012-13 under recoveries of public sector oil companies was mind-boggling Rs. 1.6 trillion.

Here is one more reason to convince critics of Modi that NDA’s policy was far more progressive than the populist policy of UPA. While NDA succeeded in collecting additional revenues of Rs. 4.4 trillions during its four- year rule, UPA incurred a loss of Rs. 4.3 trillions by selling petrol and diesel below cost between 2005-06 and 2014-15. Who are the real beneficiaries of different policies of NDA and UPA?

UPA’s munificence (selling fuels below cost) mostly helped the middle class and the rich. It also increased fiscal deficit resulting in higher inflation which harmed the poor. NDA’s policy of not passing the benefits of lower crude oil price (by imposing additional excise taxes) helped them to finance various welfare measures, reduce fiscal deficit and check the inflation.

I am sure the former Finance Minister must be fully aware of these facts. As suggested by Chidambaram, NDA can reduce excise taxes by Rs. 10 and revert to the level of UPA. But as a consequence what will happen to fiscal deficit? Where will Modi find the additional Rs. 15 to cut? Is he expecting Modi to force oil companies to lose (as happened when he was the Finance Minister) or ask States to reduce their VAT or act as a magician?

Note: Dr. Bhamy V. Shenoy, an IITM graduate, has over 50 years of experience in international oil industry having worked for Conoco in US, and Europe. He was on the board of Georgian National Oil company, Advisor to former Soviet Union countries of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Georgia and also advised Ghanian Government, Pemex in Mexico, Pertamina in Indonesia, etc. In India, he served as a member of Advisory Committee to Chairman of ONGC.

He was senior advisor to Centre for Energy Economics at University of Texas.

Why choose NaMo for the Prime Minister Job?

The end of February 2014 saw the release of another round of disappointing figures on India’s economy.  In the final quarter of 2013, India’s economy grew by 4.7 percent, the fifth consecutive quarter of sub-5 percent growth. The  4.7percent growth rate is far below the 8 percent growth rate that is needed to combat the country’s chronic development challenges.

As India heads towards a landmark election, there is certainly a need to change the  government  as the Congress led UPA’s  dire economic performance has casted a long shadow on people of the country.

The incumbent UPA government, a coalition of left-leaning parties, has long championed an “inclusive” growth model. But its failure to ensure that the benefits of growth have “trickled down” to the poor is well established. When adjusted for variations in the cost of living, 32.7 percent of India’s population live below the international extreme poverty line of $1.25 per day. India is home to a third of the world’s poor and on a host of  other social and development indicators it continues to slip further and further behind other developing countries.

According to figures compiled by the World Bank and McKinsey, since the 1980s India has only lifted 35 million people out of extreme poverty. In China the figure is 678 million. India’s poor poverty-reduction rate is matched by rapid increases in income inequality. In January India’s Business Standard reported income inequality in urban areas across a third of India’s states reached its highest point in 2011-12 since 1973-74.

The widening gap in income levels in urban areas is the product of a number of factors: continued rural-to-urban migration, a contracting industrial sector and a growing under-skilled labor force. India is urbanizing rapidly, with the urban population set to increase from 27.8 percent in 2011 to 38 percent by 2025. The country’s shrinking manufacturing sector has not been able to absorb this migrant labor force, exacerbating the problems of urban unemployment, slum expansion and widening income inequality. These challenges have had a long gestation, and persistent policy neglect is to blame.  It is clear that the Congress led UPA government at the centre continues to be evasive in addressing the legitimate needs of a fast growing urban India.

Manufacturing has the potential to be an engine of growth and development. But owing to bad policies of the Congress led UPA,Indian industry has become the country’s economic “Achilles’ heel.”The country’s manufacturing sector continues to be hobbled by poor electrification, a shortage of skilled workers and inflexible labour laws .

Improving public services, reforming labor regulations and boosting infrastructure are three things which are central to India’s effort to tackle poverty, boost employment and revive industry.

Until then India is witnessing the curious phenomenon of “reverse migration”: due to the lack of manufacturing jobs, 12 million people are set to return to rural areas from cities by 2019. These estimates, produced by Crisil, an Indian research institute, also show that the rate of job creation across both industry and agriculture is declining.

India is famously enjoying a demographic divided: it has a growing population with millions more entering the labor force each year than are leaving it. With a median age of 26 and with almost two-thirds of the population under 35, India is well placed to compete with the aging populations of its Asian economic rivals China and Japan. But India’s vast stock of labour is being squandered by a shortage of jobs, a stumbling manufacturing sector and desperate skill deficits – challenges with serious implications for urban India.

The present government has failed to meet the challenges mentioned above during the last 10 years. It is time to usher in a new era of new economic reforms under the leadership of a visionary leader like Sh. NarendraModi. So let us vote for better economic policies this time, let us vote for BJP, let us endorse Sh. NarendraModi’s candidature for Prime Ministership.

Significance Of Rudraksha

Standard
Rudraksha Significance:
courtesy:Hinduism the forgotten facts

Rudraksha is one of the most important things for the devotees of Lord Shiva. The word Rudraksha means the eye of Lord rudra (Rudraksha – rudra + aksha). The Rudraksha beads are worn by the Lord and Its devotees. rudraxa beads proven to have very good positive effect in one who wears it properly is spiritually quite significant.

Puranic Importance of Rudraksham

On the request of the divines Lord Shiva burnt the three daemon forts called tripurasura who were into disruptive activities. God burnt them without even a weapon just by the smile itself ! Three daemons in those forts who were good and devotees of the Lord came out without any harm by the Lord’s Grace ! At this point of time fromt he Three eyes of the Lord Rudra has came out. Since it came from the aksha (eye) of Lord rudra (a role played by the Supreme Shiva), it is called rudraksha.

Glory of Rudraksha

Skanda puranam (3) details the glory of this great ornament.
“Hearing or reading the glory of Rudraksham can drive away the sins of anybody. Be devoted or not, scholar or illiterate, whomsoever it be one who wears the rudrraksa will surely get rid of all the bad deeds. Philosophers call this as mahavrta. There is no deed more virtuous than wearing rudrAxa. One who gets adorned in a sincere and proper way with thousand rudrakshas, all the divines will salute that person. If thousands are not available sixteen each in both the hands, one at the head top, each hand twelve, in the neck thirty-two, six each in the ears shall be worn. One who wears like that is worshipped by others as if they are Lord Rudra. One who wears rudrakshas with pearl, ruby, Spatikam crystals, silver, gold, vaidurya (lapis lazuli), that person is Rudra Himself ! One who wears the emblem of Lord Rudra, the Rudraksham, them the sins do not approach as the darkness cannot approach the sun. The chanting (japa) with rudraksha mala will yield lots of good result. The japa done without that will give the fruit only to the extent of its own glory. Thus very virtuous rudraksha is not worn by anybody, their life gets wasted like that of the one who does not wear Holy Ash (2). The wise who keeps the rudraksha at the head and bathes, gets the benefits of bathing in Ganges, this is beyond doubt. Such rudrakshas even if only one beed is worn that person gets rid of the sin did in many births. One who anoints rudraksa gets the benefit of anointing Shiva linga (1). One, five and fourteen faced rudrakshas are adorable in all the worlds. Human who worships rudraksha, even if he/she is very poor, will get all the wealth.”

Skanda purana also refers to many stories that tell the glory of adorning one with Sri Rudraksham.
How to wear Rudrakshas

Rudrakshas are very Holy. One should wear them with respect and maintain their sanctity. Various ways are suggested by the scriptures on adorning oneself with them. Some of them are:
Adorning with thousand rudrakshas.
26 beeds on head, 50 over the chest, 14 on the shoulders, 12 on the wrist.
16 each in both the hands, 1 at the head top, 12 in each hands, 32 in the neck, 6 each in the ears.
Garlands of 108, 50, 27 are boon full.
A single bead.

Different Types of RudrAksas

Rudrakshas are in three colours. Tawny reddish (Kapila) color represent sun (Surya), white represent moon (Chandra) and black represent fire (Agni) eyes of the Lord from which they originated.
Rudrakshas come with different number of faces. Though all Rudrakshas are emblems of the Lord Shiva, each type has its additional significance. Some of them are given here.
one face – Shiva svarupa
two – devadevi (Shiva shakti)
three – agni
four – brahma
five – Kaala agni
six – Skanda
seven – Madan Mohan
eight – Ganesh
nine – Bhairava
ten – Vishnu
eleven – Ekadasharudra
twelve – dvadashaditya
thirteen – Shanmukha
fourteen – Lord Shiva

Trees giving Rudraksa beads grow in the Himalayan regions of India and Nepal. Experienced do tests to confirm the originality of the Rudraksha beads.

Plant Trees Save Electricity

Image

If you plant trees in and around your houses rather than keeping the place open you will save a lot on electricity and  will help save the environment as well. When you plant trees around your house, you prevent the sunlight to directly come on your house and thereby making the temperature lower in your house and thus reducing the need for air conditioning. When lower air conditioning is needed the lesser will be your power consumption.

So when you plant trees in and around your house you save the planet in 2 ways:

1) Trees generate oxygen which will save the plant and coming generations.

2) Trees make the air-conditioning need less which saves power which in return save the environment and your money as well.

 

So save trees plant trees love trees as they are your best friends and do work for you 24/7 without asking anything in return.

Interesting Facts About Narendra Modi

Standard
1965 में जब भारत और पाकिस्तान का युद्ध हुआ तो नरेंद्र मोदी करीब 15 साल के थे. उन दिनों वो सुबह ही अपनी टोली के साथ रेलवे स्टेशन पहुंच जाते और वहां से होकर गुजरने वाले सैनिकों की सेवा में जुट जाते थे. इसी तरह 1967 में जब गुजरात में भयंकर बाढ़ आई तो नरेंद्र मोदी अपने साथियों के साथ बाढ़ पीड़ितों की मदद और सेवा में कूद पड़े.

-बंद कर दिया था नमक और तेल खाना

आरएसएस से जुड़ने के बाद नरेंद्र मोदी ने नमक और तेल खाना बंद कर दिया था. इससे उनकी मां और भाई प्रह्लाद मोदी डर गए कि कहीं नरेंद्र मोदी फिर से साधु बनने तो नहीं जा रहे हैं.

नरेंद्र मोदी बचपन से ही आरएसएस से जुड़े हुए थे. 1958 में दीपावली के दिन गुजरात आरएसएस के पहले प्रांत प्रचारक लक्ष्मण राव इनामदार उर्फ वकील साहब ने नरेंद्र मोदी को बाल स्वयंसेवक की शपथ दिलवाई थी. मोदी आरएसएस की शाखाओं में जाने लगे. लेकिन जब मोदी ने चाय की दुकान खोली तो शाखाओं में उनका आना जाना कम हो गया.

-प्रचारकों के लिए चाय-नाश्ता बनाते थे मोदी

नरेंद्र मोदी की जीवनी लिखने वाले लेखक एमवी कामथ के मुताबिक गुजरात आरएसएस के दफ्तर हेडगेवार भवन में सुबह नरेंद्र मोदी प्रचारकों के लिए चाय नाश्ता बनाते थे. इसके बाद हेडगेवार भवन के सारे कमरों की सफाई में जुट जाते थे. आठ नौ कमरों की सफाई के बाद अपने और वकील साहब के कपड़े धोने की बारी आती थी.

-मोदी थे मेहनती कार्यकर्ता

नरेंद्र मोदी बहुत मेहनती कार्यकर्ता थे. आरएसएस के बड़े शिविरों के आयोजन में वो अपने मैनेजमेंट का कमाल भी दिखाते थे. आरएसएस नेताओं का ट्रेन और बस में रिजर्वेशन का जिम्मा उन्हीं के पास होता था. इतना ही नहीं गुजरात के हेडगेवार भवन में आने वाली हर चिट्ठी को खोलने का काम भी नरेंद्र मोदी को ही करना होता था.

नरेंद्र मोदी का मैनेजमेंट और उनके काम करने के तरीके को देखने के बाद आरएसएस में उन्हें बड़ी जिम्मेदारी देने का फैसला लिया गया. इसके लिए उन्हें राष्ट्रीय कार्यालय नागपुर में एक महीने के विशेष ट्रेनिंग कैंप में बुलाया गया.

आरएसएस के नागपुर मुख्यालय में ट्रेनिंग लेकर नरेंद्र मोदी गुजरात आरएसएस प्रचारक बनकर लौटे. आरएसएस ने नरेंद्र मोदी को गुजरात अखिल भारतीय विद्यार्थी परिषद का प्रभारी बना दिया. 1975 में इमरजेंसी के दौरान भी नरेंद्र मोदी के पास यही भूमिका थी.

इमरजेंसी के दौरान नरेंद्र मोदी ने अपने आज के सबसे बड़े राजनीतिक दुश्मन शंकर सिंह बाघेला के साथ मिलकर गुजरात बीजेपी के कार्यकर्ताओं में नया जोश भरने का काम किया किया और मज़बूत कार्यकर्ताओं की फौज तैयार की. उन दिनों शंकर सिंह बाघेला जनता के प्रिय नेता थे और मोदी को बेहतरीन रणनीति बनाने के लिए जाना जाता था.

-शुरू से थे थोड़े मनमाने

नरेंद्र मोदी शुरू से ही थोड़े मनमाने थे. उनके पुराने साथी बताते हैं कि मोदी रात में देर से सोने के चलते अक्सर संघ की सुबह की शाखा के लिए लेट हो जाया करते थे और जब सभी कार्यकर्ता फुल स्लीव कुर्ता पहनते तो नरेंद्र मोदी हाफ स्लीव का कुर्ता पहनते थे. जब सभी कार्यकर्ता खाकी नेकर पहनते तो मोदी सफेद रंग का नेकर पहनकर आते थे.

-स्टाइल था जुदा

नरेंद्र मोदी की स्टाइल सारे प्रचारकों से जुदा थी. वो दाढ़ी रखते थे और ट्रिम भी करवाते थे. एक बार आरएसएस के तब के अध्यक्ष माधवराव गोलवलकर ने सबके सामने मोदी से दाढ़ी ट्रिम किए जाने की वजह भी पूछी थी.

इमरजेंसी के दिनों में मोदी ने गुजरात में कई भाषाओं में लाखों की तादाद में संघ की विचारधारा को दर्शाने वाले पर्चे और पोस्टर छपवाए और पूरे देश में बेहद गुप्त तरीके से संघ के दफ्तरों तक पहुंचाने का काम किया.

इमरजेंसी के दौरान ही मोदी को विश्व हिंदू परिषद की एक सभा के संचालन की जिम्मेदारी दी गई. चंदे के तौर पर एक बड़ी रकम वहां इकट्ठा हुई और तमाम विश्व हिंदू परिषद के नेताओं को उस रकम की चिंता हो रही थी. मोदी ने उसी वक्त जमीन में एक गड्ढा खोदकर उसमें वो सारी रकम दबा दी और खुद अपना गद्दा उसके ऊपर बिछा कर लेट गए.

सोमनाथ से अयोध्या रथ यात्रा में बड़ी भूमिका

90 के दशक में नरेंद्र मोदी ने आडवाणी की सोमनाथ से अयोध्या रथ यात्रा में बड़ी भूमिका निभाई थी. इसके बाद उन्हें उस वक्त के बीजेपी अध्यक्ष मुरली मनोहर जोशी की एकता यात्रा का संयोजक बनाया गया. ये यात्रा दक्षिण में तमिलनाडु से शुरू होकर श्रीनगर में तिरंगा लहराकर खत्म होनी थी.

… जब मिली अनुशासन की नसीहत

नरेंद्र मोदी के शानदार मैनेजमेंट में मुरली मनोहर जोशी की एकता यात्रा बहुत कामयाब हुई, लेकिन एक दिन जोशी नरेंद्र मोदी पर भड़क गए. दरअसल तय ये हुआ था कि राष्ट्रीय नेताओं और सभी कार्यकर्ताओं को खाना साथ खाना था. लेकिन बंगलुरू में नरेंद्र मोदी अनंत कुमार के साथ गायब हो गए. जोशी इस पर बहुत नाराज हुए. सुबह उन्होंने कार्यकर्ताओं के सामने मोदी को कड़ी फटकार लगाते हुए अनुशासन में रहने की नसीहत दे डाली.

जोशी की एकता यात्रा के बाद से ही नरेंद्र मोदी की महात्वाकांक्षाएं बढ़ने लगीं. मोदी को लगने लगा कि उन्हें गुजरात बीजेपी के सीनियर लीडर्स केशुभाई पटेल और शंकर सिंह बाघेला की हैसियत का समझा जाना चाहिए. मोदी का बढ़ता कद शंकर सिंह बाघेला को भी अखरने लगा था.

1995 में जब बीजेपी जीतकर सत्ता में आई तो केशूभाई पटेल को पार्टी ने मुख्यमंत्री बनाया. शंकर सिंह बाघेला ने पार्टी में बगावत कर दी. इस सारे फसाद की जड़ माना गया नरेंद्र मोदी को. तब पार्टी ने नरेंद्र मोदी को राष्ट्रीय सचिव बनाकर गुजरात से दिल्ली रवाना कर दिया. दिल्ली में मोदी 9 अशोक रोड के एक छोटे से कमरे में रहते थे.

अटलजी बनाना चाहते थे मोदी को गुजरात का मुख्यमंत्री

2001 की बात है. एक दिन उस वक्त के प्रधानमंत्री अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी ने मोदी को बुलाया और बोले- तुम यहां पंजाबी खाना खा खाकर मोटे होते जा रहे हो. अब दिल्ली छोड़ो, यहां से जाओ. मोदी ने पूछा कहां- तो अटलजी बोले गुजरात जाओ और वहां चुनाव लड़ो. मोदी सकपकाकर बोले- मैं गुजरात से छह साल दूर रहा हूं, तमाम मुद्दों से दूर हूं, ये कैसे होगा. खैर थोड़ी देर बाद उन्हें पता चला कि अटलजी उन्हें गुजरात का मुख्यमंत्री बनाकर भेजना चाहते थे.

A Small NaMo Story – Really Impressive Read

Standard

Almost everyone who meets Narendra bhai once will say that he/she has long lasting impression of Narendra Bhai on his/her mind. Today I had a very interesting conversation with my friend in USA. We are friends since our US days and he was bachelor. A sharp guy with finance background and committed swayamsevak, he got married with equally sharp girl graduated from IIT. During the height of Ayodhya agitation in mid 90s when they got married, she was totally in opposition of Ram Janmabhoomi agitation. She had family background of Congress. I met her first time when RSS swayamsevak friends in USA gave me send-off party before I returned to India. She joined the program but stood away during “Prarthana”. But she did come to airport with her hubby to say good bye to me.

She eventually became good friend of Jyoti but never compromised on the issue of Sangh/Hindutva. I met her couple of times later during my US visits and she was always very affectionate.

This is the background. Now the real story. Today this friend of mine called from US after long gap. I casually asked him wht’s his wife’s opinion about Narendrabhai. I expected a very strong negative opinion.

To my surprise he said she is big fan of NM. And reason too is quite interesting. Several years back, before he became CM, NM traveled to US and a meeting with #RSS SwawaySevaks and family was organized in someone’s house. Our friend couple went there but as usual she did not join the meeting and instead preferred to sit in other room. After the meeting was over, NM happened to walk to the same room and found this girl reading newspaper. Out of curiosity, he started talking to her. She told him upfront that she did not agree with Hindutva etc and she belonged to Congress. NaMo continued discussion with her, accepting contribution of Congress in pre-independence and early post-independence days and candidly accepted some of our own limitations.

This 15 minute conversation with NaMo 15 years back still had long lasting impression on this lady, which made her NM’s strong supporter.

As a post script, while NaMo’s charisma has undoubtedly played a big role in this event, it is equally true that open-mindedness of this intelligent person too needs to be appreciated. Today, when my friend was talking to me, he told me that his wife is waiving a tea mug at him. That’s a mug I gave her in mid-90s (along with a small tea-table). They have changed house few times since then and now staying in their own sprawling house but they have still kept that mug and tea-table.. We are really blessed to have friends like this couple.

Should Political Parties Come Under RTI Act?

Standard
Should political parties come under RTI act? Should people kept in lawful custody be banned from contesting elections of MLA, MP and MLC?

These are the 2 questions many have been asking to us on this page through your comments. Most of them are low IQ AAP trolls who are intolerant & fanatics and as per them, Arvind Kejriwal created the whole universe and is one stop solution for every single problem in this world. We do not entertain such trolls. However there were some mature members who are regular here and have been asking this same question for the last some days, hence we decided to clear what we think of these issues.

Our take is that these 2 rules are extremely important and should be there in force. Any party Congress, BJP or AAP included should be damned to shame if they do not support them or have not implemented them. Now some of the AAP trolls will say AAP is supporting RTI. But the thing is AAP has not implemented RTI in its system so how can you support something when you have not implemented it within your organization? So AAP supporting RTI is as farce as Congress saying we will bring Economy to 10% growth or for BJP to say, we will bring in Uniform Civil Code and banish Article 370. All the parties promise a lot before elections but when they come to power, they forget it. For AAP, it is so easy to promise a lot, but their intentions are clear from the fact that they have not implemented RTI in AAP itself.

Now, In one of our earlier posts we had said that, irrespective of any political party, we would question their hypocrisy be it Congress, BJP, SP, BSP, CPM DMK or AAP. So as of now I would safely say that none of the parties (BJP and AAP) included support RTI for political parties. Their leaders may make tall claims but actions is quite contrasting and it is actions which matter not words.

Now I would come to the original question, should political parties follow these 2 rules? My answer is a FIRM YES.
Should they be cursed and criticized if they oppose to follow these rules? Again a DEFINITE ‘YES’

But in this ‘josh’ (ultra excitement) we forget basic things. There is something known as priority. Right now in the country how many people do you think get 3 meals per day? How many have decent enough Job to satisfy basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, education and entertainment? How many of you can travel between 2 places without having spend 1 hour in traffic jams? If we have trains which can travel at 400 km per hour, we can commute daily to Big cities while staying in nearby cities, thereby saving a lot of money which goes on House Rent due to staying in Big cities. How many of you get proper healthcare and hospital benefits? How many of you get proper safe drinking water? How many of you think that you are safe from Terrorist attacks?

As per Economics Resources are limited and I would rather have the current resources allocated in addressing the above problems and not in RTI or Lokayukta or Lokpal and all that jazz. Clearly, that does not mean political parties should escape transparency, but we MORE IMPORTANT issues to address. It would be a shame that despite having 1.3 billion plus brains, we are forced a sub standard living. So RTI, No criminal in politics etc should definitely come but not at the cost of above things.

Further I have my own reservations on political parties under RTI and not allowing lawful custody to contest elections which I would tell you in sometime. But as of now the only thing is there are lot of people who would try to mislead you. Do not fall into their trap. Now whenever your local politicians/candidates come to you, don’t ask them, “WHAT THEY WILL DO” rather ask them “WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TILL NOW” and being in power has no bearing to this question. We the people of India should set the agenda for politicians in elections and not the other way around so ask these politicians what they have done to achieve above mentioned points, along with some other development related problem at your local level.

नमक का ये आसान प्रयोग कर देगा हर तरह के बुखार की छुट्टी ——–
_____________________________________________________

बदलते मौसम में बुखार की चपेट में आना एक आम बात है। कभी वायरल फीवर के नाम पर तो कभी मलेरिया जैसे नामों से यह सभी को अपनी चपेट में ले लेता है। फिर बड़ा आदमी हो या कोई बच्चा इस बीमारी की चपेट में आकर कई परेशानियों से घिर जाते हैं। कई बुखार तो ऐसे हैं जो बहुत दिनों तक आदमी को अपनी चपेट में रखकर उसे पूरी तरह से कमजोर बना देता है। पर घबराइए नहीं सभी तरह के बुखार की एक अचूक दवा है भुना नमक। इसके प्रयोग किसी भी तरह के बुखार को उतार देता है।

भुना नमक बनाने की विधि- खाने मे इस्तेमाल आने वाला सादा नमक लेकर उसे तवे पर डालकर धीमी आंच पर सेकें। जब इसका कलर कॉफी जैसा काला भूरा हो जाए तो उतार कर ठण्डा करें। ठण्डा हो जाने पर एक शीशी में भरकर रखें।जब आपको ये महसूस होने लगे की आपको बुखार आ सकता है तो बुखार आने से पहले एक चाय का चम्मच एक गिलास गर्म पानी में मिलाकर ले लें। जब आपका बुखार उतर जाए तो एक चम्मच नमक एक बार फिर से लें। ऐसा करने से आपको बुखार कभी पलट कर नहीं आएगा।

- इस नुस्खे को अजमाने के बाद रोगी को करीब 48 घंटे तक कुछ खाने को न दें। और उसके बाद उसे दूध चाय या हल्का दलिया बनाकर खिलाऐं।

सादा बुखार

सादे बुखार में उपवास अत्यधिक लाभदायक है। उपवास के बाद पहले थोड़े दिन मूँग लें फिर सामान्य खुराक शुरु करें। ऋषि चरक ने लिखा है कि बुखार में दूध पीना सर्प के विष के समान है अतः दूध का सेवन न करें।

पहला प्रयोगः सोंठ, तुलसी, गुड़ एवं काली मिर्च का 50 मि.ली काढ़ा बनाकर उसमें आधा या 1 नींबू निचोड़कर पीने से सादा बुखार मिटता है।

दूसरा प्रयोगः शरीर में हल्का बुखार रहने पर, थर्मामीटर द्वारा बुखार न बताने पर थकान, अरुचि एवं आलस रहने पर संशमनी की दो-दो गोली सुबह और रात्रि में लें। 7-8 कड़वे नीम के पत्ते तथा 10-12 तुलसी के पत्ते खाने से अथवा पुदीना एवं तुलसी के पत्तों के एक तोला रस में 3 ग्राम शक्कर डालकर पीने से हल्के बुखार में खूब लाभ होता है।

तीसरा प्रयोगः कटुकी, चिरायता एवं इन्द्रजौ प्रत्येक की 2 से 5 ग्राम को 100 से 400 मि.ली. पानी में उबालकर 10 से 50 मि.ली. कर दें। यह काढ़ा बुखार की रामबाण दवा है।

चौथा प्रयोगः बुखार में करेले की सब्जी लाभकारी है।

पाँचवाँ प्रयोगः मौठ या मौठ की दाल का सूप बनाकर पीने से बुखार मिटता है। उस सूप में हरी धनिया तथा मिश्री डालने से मुँह अथवा मल द्वारा निकलता खून बन्द हो जाता है।
