Do you think that the title of this post is weird beyond your expectation of weirdness from this blog?
Let me try and explain. For the longest time, we have seen how we, as a country, value family relations more than anything else. Talking of recent times, we never refrain from commenting on global forums that we Indians believe in family and relations and with the kind of close-knit bonds that we have in our families, we can take on the world. While shouting at the top of our voices about how we have close-knit relations on every forum possible is not really a done thing, having strong family relations is one of the best things one can have. (Let’s not talk about how it’s mostly about family and society in India than individual, let’s keep that for another day 🙂 ). So, coming back to the reasoning behind the title, having a happy family ensures that we have a fulfilling life which in turn is the basis of having a flourishing country and what lies the foundation of a happy family? A healthy child. (I do realize that in that last few sentences I have made the world appear so simple). Still, we can collectively agree that the foundation of a happy family is a healthy child.
When a child arrives into a system, it fills the entire atmosphere with happiness. Children happen to have that power. No matter how stressful your day had been, when the child of the family comes in front of you, it puts a smile on your face. The opposite of this is as true. When the child of the family is sick, everyone and everything is strained and tensed. Nothing seems to be right. Precisely the reason why our parents fuss so much about what we eat and whether we are getting ‘weak’. I remember my mother telling me that they also used to get irritated when grand mother fussed so much about what they ate. No matter whom you ask, everyone seems to have some foods that were constant companions in their childhood. Even a mere mention of any of the names brings back huge memories because some foods have so much been a part of our childhood. A part of our routine so fiercely that it is hard to not get nostalgic. I am sure you are all thinking about some of those foods right now. Yes, yes, I and you are on the same track thinking about soaked almonds and milk. To take care of our health and well-being, our families ensured that we eat all the wondrous foods possible. Among these foods, the one product that was a part of the winter morning routine for most of us was Chyawanprash and I am not sure of today’s time but in those days, Dabur ruled. So much so that it is almost not possible to say ‘Chyawanprash’, we always tend to say ‘Dabur Chyawanprash’. It is that one thing that I think most homes stocked up on because they considered it a wonder product for the health of the children of the family. Let’s just say that they got to know about my theory of a healthy child = a happy family. 😉 Now, honestly, I am not aware of it’s benefits but I really, really enjoyed eating it. I found it very tasty to be honest. However, definitely head over to this link: https://www.liveveda.com/daburchyawanprash/ to know about the benefits of Dabur Chyawanprash and, of course, you should head over to Google as well to know about the benefits or any precautions whatsoever. Since these days we are all awakening again to healthy eating, this could be that one good thing in your morning routine. I know if you have a child in your family, you are already thinking about their morning routine. 🙂 Wishing good health to all the children and happiness to all! 🙂
PS: Totally off-topic, but I hope someone from Dabur who can be of help reads this: I totally love Dabur’s venture: NewU. To have a multi-brand cosmetics chain which is exclusive to India is very exciting, but I am refraining from buying things from NewU as Dabur is not cruelty-free. I understand that for the Dabur Research Foundation, you cannot go completely cruelty-free but in cosmetics, it is really not required. Can we have NewU’s cosmetics that are cruelty-free (or if they already are, then a confirmation would do). Thanks. 🙂
