IAS Interview

Once a bright intelligent young man went for IAS (Indian Civil Service) interview. He was asked –

Q 1. When did India get independence?

He answered – The efforts started long back; but could succeed in 1947.

Q 2. Who were the persons, who played important role in this fight for independence?

Answer – There are many people, who were involved and contributed in this. If I give a name, it will be injustice to others.

Q 3. Do you think, corruption is the greatest enemy of the country?

Answer – A committee is investigating in this matter. I can give a correct reply to this only after seeing the report.

The interview board was impressed by his original ideas. They asked him to wait outside; but also advised him not to reveal the questions, as they may ask the same questions to other candidates also.

When the young man went out of the room, Sardar inquired about the questions asked. The young man said that he had promised the interview board not to disclose the questions.

But, Sardar found a way out. “Tell me the answer you gave”..

The young man, thought it to be okay, as he was not going back on his words of “not disclosing the QUESTIONS”. So he gave him the three answer which Sardar quickly learnt by heart.

When Sardar went in for interview, this is what happened.

Q 1. When were you born?

Sardar:- The efforts started long back, but could succeed in 1947.

Interviewers got confused…they asked next question.

Q 2. What is your father’s name?

Sardar :- There are many people, who were involved and contributed in this. If I give a name, it will be injustice to others.

The board members were shocked at the reply..they said.

Q 3. Are you mad?

Sardar :- A committee is investigating in this matter. I can give a correct reply to this only after seeing the report.

Home Remedies To Control Blood Sugar Levels

Diabetes is one of the leading concerns among health professionals today as more and more individuals fall prey to this life-long and dangerous disease. Diabetes is caused when the blood sugar levels rise to an excess and a resistance to insulin results. Once this happens, the diabetic individual can no longer control their blood sugar levels, and they can rise and fall with serious consequences. Yet whether you are diabetic or know someone diabetic or not, it is important to implement measures to control blood sugar levels and to stop the spread of the diabetes in its tracks.

1. Consume More Dairy Products dairy
The protein and fat in dairy products helps improve blood sugar levels, and if the products are low in fat, it has been shown that they can also decreased the chances for developing insulin resistance.

2. Choose the Right Kind of Bread
Avoid white flour based products at all costs! These simple carbohydrates are full of sugar that spike up your blood sugar. Instead, you should consume whole wheat or rye products that are high in fiber, protein and complex carbohydrates which control blood sugar levels and keep you full longer.

3. Maximize the Magnesium
Magnesium is a mineral known to help prevent the onset of Type II diabetes and should be consumed as much as possible. It is best to consume natural sources of magnesium such as spinach, fish, nuts, leafy greens and avocados. All of these foods have been proved to lower the risk of diabetes and can even aid in weightless.

4. Cardamom is great!
Cardamom originates in the ginger family of spices and comes from Asia as well as South America. The spice is known to regulate Type II diabetes and can be sprinkled on coffee, tea, yogurt and even cereal. The spice is known to help decrease blood glucose levels by eighteen to thirty percent.

5. Buckwheatsoba
Buckwheat is an excellent source of fiber that you may never have heard of. It also does wonders for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. Buckwheat comes in the form of soba noodles, which are a delicious substitute for rice or pasta as well as in a number of powders that can be added to baked goods or even on top of a slice of (whole wheat) bread.

6. Drink in Moderation
Alcohol contains huge amounts of sugar, and anyone trying to watch out for their blood sugar should definitely moderate the amount of alcohol they consume. It is best to occasionally drink wine with dinner, and not after dinner when the same glass of wine could alter insulin levels in the blood.

7. Watch Fat Intake
It is important to watch the amount of saturated fats entering the body because these can seriously increase the chances of contracting diabetes. Saturated fats are usually in fried and junk foods as they are cooked in unhealthy oils.

8. Exercise Daily
Getting in exercise each day is critical to maintaining normal blood sugar levels, even if it’s a brisk walk in the park.

9. Laughing
Yes, this is really one of the tips that will prevent your chances for diabetes. It was found that those who laugh have lower blood sugar levels than those who don’t laugh enough (this means you should keep reading our jokes!).

10. Eat Grapefruit
Grapefruit has been proved to aid in weight loss as it affects the glucose metabolism, keeping insulin levels steady.

11. Do Resistance Training
Building muscle mass is important for burning more glucose out of your system and training once to twice a week could significantly aid in preventing the occurrence of diabetes.

12. Drink Decaf, Not Regularcoffee
Decaffeinated coffee slows down the rate at which the intestines absorb sugars and speeds up the absorption of sugar by the muscles.

13. Eat Smaller Meals
It is best to have a small meal every half hour and then another small meal (or a second half of the regular size meal) later on. In the same vein, it is also important to eat regularly so that insulin levels don’t spike.

14. Get Enough Sleep
Sleep deprivation can affect blood sugar and insulin levels so it is important to get enough sleep each night. It is also essential to stop snoring because according to some studies, those who snore are more likely to develop diabetes (because snoring is often tied to being overweight).

15. Learn Relaxation
Listen to soothing music or read an interesting book, whatever you need to do to relax. Meditation and yoga can also help if they are done properly and on a regular basis.

10 Unexpected Benefits of Yogurt

Yogurt is a great food for us as it helps with digestion, gives us a good energetic feeling and tastes wonderful. But not many people know that it has many other benefits you may not know quite yet. After reading all of this I’m sure you’ll start acting like me, and do your best to eat one cup of yogurt every day or two.

Protects your teeth:
The lactic acid in yogurt has a positive and protecting effect on your gums and teeth. It can help keep your teeth healthy and pretty and overcome the damages done by other foods and drinks, most commonly – coffee. It’s important to note that although containing sugar, yogurt has no harmful effect on the enamel of your teeth.

Reduces allergy symptoms:
Those of us with seasonal allergies know how hard it can be to do anything when the symptoms start to appear, but a cup of yogurt might be an easy fix to this problem. The probiotics found in yogurt may decrease your body’s reaction to pollen and other allergens, minimizing your allergic reaction.

Great pre or post workout snack:
Yogurt is rich on carbohydrates that can either help re-fuel you through out your workout, or replace the energy lost after you are done. The potassium and sodium found in it can also help replace those electrolytes you sweat out and keeps you feeling fresh even after a hard workout.

Fights the common cold:
The common cold will always be there, not much you can do about it. But there’s still hope preventing it in time. Research proved that yogurt can strengthen your immune system, making your T-cells stronger and more active. They are more prone to beat the sickness out of you before it drags on too long.

Prevents yeast infections:
If you are given a prescription for antibiotics, you might want to consider yogurt to protect yourself. Using antibiotics usually raises the chances of yeast infections and the yogurt’s active cultures can help balance pH levels and prevent this uncomfortable problem.

Reduces the risk of high blood pressure:
A recent study, conducted over the course of 15 years, revealed that 30% of volunteers that took at least 2% of their daily calorie intake from yogurt, were less likely to develop high blood pressure. That’s only from 2%.

Helps prevent osteoporosis:
All milk and dairy products are in general a great source of calcium, and help build healthy bones. Look for yogurts with added vitamin D for an greater help in keeping your bones strong and healthy.

A great source of energy:
Aside from the energy provided by the carbohydrates in yogurt, it also contains B vitamins which are just what your body needs when you feel like you could use a little pick-me-up.

Importance of E

In this world of E-mails, E-ticket, E-paper, E-recharge, E-transfer and the latest E-Governance…

Never Forget “E-shwar (God)” who makes E-verything E-asy for E-veryone E-veryday.

“E” is the most Eminent letter in all most every situation.

Men or Women don’t exist without “E”.

House or Home can’t be made without “E”.

Bread or Butter can’t be found without “E”.

“E” is the beginning of “Ethics” and end of “Life”

It is beginning of “Existence” and the end of “Trouble.”
It is beginning of “Evolve” and the beginning of “End”

It’s not in ‘War’ but twice in ‘Peace’.

It’s once in ‘Hell’ but twice in ‘Heaven’.

“E” represented ‘Emotions’

Hence, all emotional relations like Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Wife Friends have ‘E’ in them.

“E” also represents ‘Effort’ ‘Energy’

Without “E”, we would have no Love, Life, Wife, Friends or Hope.

And ‘See’, ‘Hear’, ‘Smell’, or ‘Taste’ as ‘Eye’ ‘Ear’, ‘Nose’, Heart ‘Tongue’ are incomplete without “e”.

Henceforth GO with “E” but without E-GO.

Women’s favourite joke. Men will also enjoy.

A woman was walking down the street when she was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked her for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The woman took out her wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy some chocolate with it instead of dinner?”

“No, I had to stop sweets years ago”, the homeless woman replied.

“Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?” the woman asked.

“No, I don’t waste time shopping”, the homeless woman said. “I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.”

“Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?”, the woman asked.

“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless woman. “I hvnt had my hair done in 20 years!”

“Well,” said the woman, “I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going to take you out for dinner with my husband
and myself tonight.

The homeless woman was astounded. “Won’t your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I’m dirty and I probably smell pretty disgusting.”

The woman replied, “That’s okay. It’s important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, salon and chocolates
