Valve, Rhythm and Bypass – Open Heart Surgery
I just developed a slight pain on the bottom rib on right side while walking and the same got repeated after a few days. On getting medical checkup I was advised to go in for open heart surgery and I underwent the same unexpectedly. Thanks to the Almighty and the Doctors and those who cared for me that I recovered back to health.
Once I was walking on a foot path in Delhi India and I sneezed, across the road there was a gentleman who shouted. 'God bless you' and I got reminded of my religious duty. In fact one gets relieved on sneezing and the other person blesses him.
It is our religious duty to say 'Thank God' on sneezing, when the other person near him says, 'God bless you' and he in return says, 'May God guide you on the right path'.
Thanks to all our ancestors who have preserved these age old manuscripts through thick and thin protecting these from attacks of moths, silver fish,rats etc.
We have 777 year old Arabic handwritten manuscripts in our ancestoral Library, besides other manuscripts of later dates.
It is said: 'No news is good news'. I was told that in England the front page of a newspaper does not carry the bad news as it adversely affects the psychology of the public. An elderly man was asked about his health by his friend and his reply was, "How can you expect me to keep a good health when I see a bad news on the front page of the daily paper as a break fast news."
I prefer radio news, next I see headlines in the newspaper and read the details that I find of my interest.The Tv news is my last preference.
It would give a great pleasure to see old friends at High School meeting again after over half a decade.
