Woman Arrest Law :
An incident took place in Pune – a young girl was attacked by a man
posing as a plain clothes officer; he asked her 2 come 2 the police station when
she & her male friend didn’t have a driver’s license 2 show. He sent the boy
off 2 get his license and asked the girl to accompany him to the police station.
Took her instead to an isolated area where the horrendous crime was committed.
The law [which most of us are
not aware of] clearly states that between 6 pm and 6 am, a woman has the right
to REFUSE to go to the Police Station, even if an arrest warrant has been issued against her. It is
a procedural issue that a woman can be arrested between 6pm and 6am, ONLY if she
is arrested by a woman officer & taken to an ALL WOMEN police station. And
if she is arrested by a male officer, it has to be proven that a woman officer
was on duty at the time of arrest.
Please fwd this 2 as many girls you know.
Also 2 boys coz this can help them protect their wife, sisters and mother. It is
good for us to know our rights.
Do not neglect, fwd to your entire buddy list.

You are responsible for everything that happens in your life. Learn to accept total responsibility for yourself. If you do not manage yourself, then you are letting others have control of your Life. These tips will help “you” manage “you.”
Here is a list of things that help you in self management and which will in turn lead you to the path of success: –
-) Look at every new opportunity as an exciting and new-life experience.
-) Be a professional who exhibits self-confidence and self-assurance in your potential to complete -any task.
-) Agree with yourself in advance that you will have a good attitude toward the upcoming task.
-) Frequently ask, “Is what I am doing right now moving me toward my goals?”
-) Do it right the first time and you will not have to take time later to fix it.
-) Accept responsibility for your job successes and failures. Do not look for a scapegoat.
-) Do not view things you do as a “job.” View all activities as a challenge.
-) Use your subconscious mind by telling it to do what you do want. Instead of telling yourself, “I can’t do that very well,” say, “I can do this very well.”-) Give yourself points for completing tasks on your “to-do” list in priority order. When you reach 10 points, reward yourself.
-) Practice your personal beliefs. It may be helpful each morning to take 15 minutes to gather your thoughts and say a prayer.
-) Make a commitment to show someone a specific accomplishment on a certain date. The added urgency will help you feel motivated to have it done.
-) Practice self-determination, wanting to do it for yourself.
-) Believe that you can be what you want to be.
-) Never criticize yourself as having a weakness. There is no such thing. You are only talking about a present undeveloped skill or part of yourself that if you so chose, you can change. You do not have any weakness, only untapped potential.
-) Be pleasant all the time-no matter what the situation.
-) Challenge yourself to do things differently than you have in the past. It provides new ideas and keeps you interested.
-) Talk to yourself. A self-talk using positive affirmation is something that is common among all great achievers. They convince themselves that they can accomplish their goals.
-) Create your own “motivation board” by putting up notes of things you need to do on a bulletin board or special wall space. It is an easily visible way to see what you need to work on. When an item is done, remove the note. Also keep your goals listed and pictured on your board.
-) Stay interested in what you are doing. Keep looking for what is interesting in your work. Change your perspective and look at it as someone outside your job would,
-) Establish personal incentives and rewards to help maintain your own high enthusiasm and performance level.

C. 2 German men and 1 German woman
D. 2 Greek men and 1 Greek woman
E. 2 Polish men and 1 Polish woman

What a Crazy coincidence!
One month later, on various parts of the island, the following was observed:

G. The two American men are contemplating suicide. The American woman is bitching about her body being her own, the true nature of feminism, how she can do everything that they can do, about the necessity of fulfilment, the equal division of the household chores, how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her much better, and how her relationship with her mother is improving.

Healing Powers of Yoga
[Swami Satyananda Saraswati]
Himalayas with a very eminent s annyasin, Swami Sivananda, who had been a medical doctor in the earlier period of his life. I used to be his secretary, typist, editor and translator.
Balancing the energies
The endocrine glands
The body makes its own medicines
Europe, America and Australia and inspired them lo study these phenomena. I helped one team lo thoroughly examine the impact and effect of yoga postures on coronary disease, which was a very important subject for me. I went to the central government in Delhi, and met the ministers and other chief officers as the first endeavour to finance the project. They were very glad to do that, and granted a large sum of money and facilities in a medical college, along with permission to examine and instruct the heart patients. They also gave an office, electro-cardiographic and electroencephalographic facilities, and a yearly subsidy for recurring expenses. Eminent doctors followed these observations during a period of five years and examined more than 950 patients, men and women, with all kinds of coronary diseases including angina, thrombosis and Myocardial infarction. The report was finally compiled and published before the Government of India.
India, that before a medical expert is called for a heart problem, the patient is made to lie down on the floor with his legs raised. It is common sense, when legs are raised on a pillow, the blood goes back to the heart, and the pressure and strain on the heart is relieved, no matter what complaint it is. Then the heart can function until the medical expert arrives. This is a very simple thing which can be taught to everybody. Wherever I go, if I meet people over forty years, I tell them that this is one practice they have to learn.
, heart disease is not a major disease, whereas in the west it is the number one killer. In India, only the people who are following the modern way of life, sitting in a room all day and not going out; suffering from anxiety, insecurity, stress and strain, etc., have heart attacks. In the villages, people do not understand what a heart attack is. They are very simple folk. They go to sleep on time, wake up on time, take proper food and exercise, just as the body requires.
Siddhasana and the heart
Christian Barnard from South Africa. We started talking about the yoga postures and he said, 'Yes, that is what I tell people to do, because if yoga postures are done correctly, you don't have to worry about heart attack at all.' When I asked him what was the basis of his statement, he replied that, 'In the male body, testosterones are produced, and these hormones attack the heart.'
, along with heart disease, another important experiment has already been concluded in the management of diabetes. The course; was conducted in one of my ashrams for forty days under the direct observation of doctors. When the course was concluded, the patients went home and the doctors followed up their progress.
, yoga is one of the most important branches in healing. The Medical Association has asked the medical colleges to include the teaching of yoga therapy in the medical studies. Medical doctors come to our ashram in Monghyr from all parts of India in order to get an introductory idea of the major principles of yoga therapy. As well as in India, there is work being done with great speed in Australia, Belgium, America and other places into the effects of yoga therapy.
Prolapse of the uterus
India, many ladies suffer from prolapse of the uterus, where its supports become weak, and it comes down. Of course, we have a system of surgery for this, but in yoga we use only three postures practised over a period of time, which bring the whole genitourinary system into order and make it strong. One practice is called naukasana, 'the boat pose'. You lie down, raise both legs a bit and tense them, then raise the upper part of the body a bit, and tense it. Then stretch the arms in the direction of the feet and make them tense. It has been seen that during this posture the uterus drops back. It may not happen in a few days, it may take a period of time but definitely this posture helps in prolapse.
India, an F.R.CS. He had been in London and had to be brought back to India because of cancer of the spine.
annot move his head as easily as I can, he can at least look a little from side to side.
Patna from an overseas trip, he took leave of me and said, 'Swamiji, next time, I will come to the ashram alone.' He now goes to the bathroom, takes his own bath, washes his own clothes, cleans his own plate, sweeps his own room, and makes his own bed.
England or America, they may have a way, but here in India we do not have a cure for rheumatoid arthritis.' The Secretary of Education was thus so obliged that he spoke with his colleagues in the Government. He reasoned that a science that could deal so positively, so successfully, and so immediately with such a condition as rheumatoid arthritis should be taught to the teachers and professors so that they in turn, could teach the children. In this way the next generation would have a better idea about the therapeutic possibilities of yoga.
The future of yoga
India, not only my own institution but many others, and in Australia they are working very hard too. Australian doctors write down under their prescription 'Practise Yoga'. They don't know very much about the postures, but they know what yoga can do. The work is also going on in most European countries. I am particularly aware of what is being done in Czechoslovakia and
Poland because my disciples there are working in collaboration with the medical authorities.
