आकस्मिक उपचार!

असावधानी या लापरवाही दुर्घटनाओं का सबसे बड़ा कारण है। सावधानी से दुर्घटनाओं को बहुत हद तक कम किया जा सकता है। दुर्घटना में घायल व्यक्ति को जल्द से जल्द आवश्यक उपचार मिल जाने पर मृत्यु एवं अन्य खतरों से बचाया जा सकता है। अतः इस बार अखण्ड ज्ञान आपके लिए आकस्मिक दुर्घटनाओं में की जाने वाली प्राथमिक चिकित्सा के चुनिंदा सूत्र लेकर आई है। ... आग से जलना अक्सर गृहणियाँ रसोईघर में खाना पकाते समय  अपना कोई न कोई अंग जला बैठती हैं। वहीं बच्चे भी अनजाने में शैतानी करते हुए गर्म बर्तन को छूकर या गैस की आँच के नज़दीक आकर अपने को जला लेते हैं। दिवाली पर पटाखों से जल जाना भी एक साधारण घ…

क्या हम भी ले पाएँगे कोई प्रेरणा?

मात्र एक इंसान ने बीस लाख से ज़्यादा अजन्मे शिशुओं की जान बचाई। क्या हुआ? चौंक गए! पर यह बिल्कुल सच है... आस्ट्रेलिया के जेम्स क्रीस्टोफर के खून में पाया गया- Rh(D)इम्यून ग्लोब्युलिन। यह दुर्लभ एंटीबॉडी ( रोग-प्रतिकारक) है। गर्भस्थ माताओं की देह में इस एंटीबॉडी का अभाव गर्भस्थ शिशुओं को रीसस रोग से पीड़ित कर उनकी मृत्यु का कारण बनता था। जेम्स ने अपने रक्त-प्लाज़्मा को इन माताओं को दान किया और उनके शिशुओं की रक्षा की। अभी तक जेम्स हज़ार से भी ज़्यादा बार अपने रक्त-प्लाज़्मा का दान कर चुके हैं। इसके लिए उन्हें ' Man with the Golden Arm' की उपाधि से विभूषित किया गया है। साथ ही 'जीवन बीमा कम्पनी' द्…

विवेकानंद बनने के सूत्र!

इस माह अखण्ड ज्ञान पत्रिका आपके लिए भारत के क्रांतिकारी युवा संत स्वामी विवेकानंद जी के कुछ विशेष चित्र लेकर आई है। इनमें से अधिकतर चित्र मूल प्रतियाँ हैं, जो स्वामी जी के जीवन संघर्ष के विलक्षण पहलुओं को उजागर कर रही हैं। इन पहलुओं ने स्वामी विवेकानंद जी को आकार दिया; नरेन्द्र को विश्व-विजेता विवेकानंद बनाया। यह मौलिक चित्र स्वामी श्री रामकृष्ण परमहंस जी का है, जो अपने शिष्यों के मध्य उपस्थित हैं। परमहंस जी भाव-समाधि की अवस्था में लीन दिखाई दे रहे हैं। यह अवस्था उनकी ब्रह्म-निष्ठता की परिचायक है। केवल ठाकुर श्री रामकृष्ण परमहंस जी के समान सद्गुरु ही ऐसा सामर्थ्य रख…

How to get rid of the bad pathways?

Have we ever stopped and checked our personality? May be! We have good and bad traits; but have we ever observed and categorised them? No, because we don't care. We are not bothered! We take life as it comes and keep enjoying the free flow (or, better say, the free fall). Mixing with all sorts of people, watching all kinds of films/serials/scenes, doing whatever we like- all this underlines our existence. Not even an iota of thought goes into the "what's and how's" of 'Character'. 'Enjoy and chill'- this is the core principle defining the lifestyle of the current generation. Whatever comes our way, we simply go with it- without segregating the good from bad. Obviously, with greater and effortless availability of bad, we start spending more time on bad stuff. However, like weeds take away nutrition from the good crop; indulgence into bad sucks our energy and keeps us away from doing good. The result is- feeble conscience, lack of control, weaker mind, poor focus and concentration. Sooner or later we start getting bogged down and feel dull. Instead of enjoying life, we start feeling helpless and vulnerable. Therefore, an important question is- 'What is the way out?' 1. The first thing is to recognise that there is a problem. 2. The second is to identify right and wrong. 3. The third is to start feeding the good rather than feeding the bad. A man had two birds which would keep fighting. However, the bird that the ma…

Health Killers @ Office/Corporate

Office is our second home. Rather, in today's times, it won't be wrong to say that our workplace has become our first home with respect to the time we spend there. Since most of the time is spent in the office, the health or fitness factor at the workplace automatically pulls our attention. Therefore, let's shift our focus to the three major health hazards that can affect our fitness and the ways by which we can protect ourselves from these disorders. SITTING RELATED DISEASES One of the major health killers are the chairs of our offices. We sit for almost the entire day on the chair. Verily, the day is not far when we would come across such headlines- "Sitting has become the epidemic of the era!" Why so? It was published in the American Journal of Epidemiology that mortality and time spent in sitting have correlation with each other. This result came out after studying about 1,85,000 people for a period of around 14 years. Moreover, as per the article published in the Medical Journal of Australia,'prolonged sitting at the desk may account for health hazards'. ... AIR CONDITIONER-RELATED HEALTH PROBLEMS Air conditioners (AC) have become an integral part in offices today. Without an AC, we can't even imagine a corporate world. However, the AC environment has been taken as one of the causes of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is used in the context of situations wherein the people experience acute health ha…

Check the status of your Friendship!

A friend is one who stands to share your every touch of grief and care... And though your need be great or small, his strength is yours throughout it all... No matter what your dream may be... He prays your triumph soon to see... There is no wish your tongue can tell... But what it is your friend's as well... Let's say, one gets a friend who fulfill all the facets as expressed in the lines by the poet. Characterised with these traits, can we assure that friendship to be the 'true friendship'? Surprisingly, no! Reason being,the purpose for which this sharing is done... the objective for the accomplishment of which one pours his strengths... the dream which one aspires to turn into reality... and, the wish which one aspires to fulfill- these matter the most! It is primarily the direction and the intention behind one's goal that decides the cadre of friendship! Yes, friendship has categories. As Buddha says, one can be Kalyan Mitta (the good friend) or a Papa Mitta (the evil friend). In modern parlance, this bifurcation can be stated as animal friendship, human friendship and divine friendship. When the purpose for which one associates with the other as a friend is ill-willed, it is characterised as 'animal friendship'. The fate of such a friendship is nothing but disaster at the individual as well as the societal level. When one extends a helping hand to his comrade for the attainment of worldly aspirations or goals, that association is …
