HAL Aerospace Museum and Tiruvannamalai Temple PhotosOctober 11, 2009
It’s been a long time since I put up a photo post, since I rarely take any photos. I am either too lazy to take photos or my cell phone is too complicated for such operations. Anyways, crossing all the self inflicted hurdles, I managed to take some photos.
The below are some pictures taken in HAL Heritage Centre and Aerospace Museum, Bangalore.
The below photo was taken in front of the Tiruvannamalai Temple (Annamalai is another name of God Shiva) in TN. Quite a big temple this.
Actually I went to attend the marriage of a relative, there. And they gave one small booklet to everyone. There was one section in it, which was quite interesting. It was in Tamil, but I will translate it for you people.
Why should you eat food by sitting down on the floor (with your legs folded)?
Since the eating culture is changing very fast in our country, we are eating food by standing, sitting on the sofa, walking etc. Instead of eating food sitting on the chairs of the dining table (sometimes with one leg over another, sometimes without removing shoes, sometimes watching TV simultaneously), it is better to follow the habit of our ancestors – sitting on the floor with legs in folded position as it is good for the health. When we eat food, there is some movement in some joints in our body – this movement will cause some pressure on the joints. Sitting down with legs folded would help reduce this pressure, which is good for the joints. Also, when we are standing or comfortably sitting on the sofa, there is more chance that we would eat more (lot of) food, which is also not good for health. Even today’s medicine advises you not to eat so much food that your stomach is full.
So, you fast-food-culture-brought-up people, know this :D. Of course, fast food in itself is bad for health.
