A Dream is a sequence of images


A Dream is a sequence of images, predominantly visual in character, which are experienced during sleep. A dream has commonly one or more scenes, several characters in addition to the dreamer, and a sequence of action &interaction usually involving the dreamer. It is like a motion picture or a dramatic production in which the dreamer is both a participant and an observer. The images of a dream are projections of mind. A projection is a representation of what is in the mind. Dreams, are in fact, creative expressions of the human mind .They tell us what is going on in a mind of a person. The language of dreams consists of pictures which are concrete representations of the mind ideas. What kind of conceptions are expressed by dreams? There is the whole world of the personal , the intimate, the emotional & conflictful, and it is this world of ideas out of which dreams are formed. A dream is a personal document,  a letter to oneself. In the first place dreams reveal what we really think of our selves when the mask of waking life is removed. These self conceptions are important because what a person thinks about himself has a great influence upon how he behaves. If a person thinks he is a  failure, the chances are that he will try to live up to this image of himself and be a failure. If he thinks he has done some immoral act, his life will be full feelings of guilt, even if he tries to justify himself to others. Dreams also reveal how the dreamer conceives  of others people. During sleep it is not uncommon for impulses that are kept in check during waking life to express themselves in dreams. Many are unpleasant, even terrifying as in the case of night mares. The dreamer is being chased by a man with a knife, a lion about to spring on him, the house is on fire, he is drowning or he is arrested and put in a prison. These are all punishment dreams. The dreamer feeling guilty for a misdeed in finding himself punished. Everyone has problems and everyone tries to do something about them. The dreamer should be interpreted as a whole, because it reflects an interconnected network of ideas in the mind of the dreamer. By analyzing a dream sequence once arrives at a more comprehensive and more coherent view of the conceptual  system and the subconscious contents of a persons.

“Thirst” is what I don’t find fit

“Thirst” is what I don’t find fit.

Our new generation is deeply thirsty of ‘cold-drinks’ and ‘ice-creams’. Adolescents find passion to drink strong cold-drinks with friends on roads, still even some of them are well known of these drink’s contamination.

I am not saying that I am too much preserved from all these things. Of course not! I love it and also know that “Excess of everything is bad”. I too can feel that yet we are not so much grown up to think too much about intake of food but consciousness of health must be started from now onwards because healthy man bears a healthy mind and healthy mind is what a student requires.

Turning now to main point that why we must not be eagerly crazy about thirst? It must be because the factories of thirst like cold-drinks and ice-lollies never think about the quality of products they are using in manufacturing of all these things. Strong cold-drinks contain carbon-dioxide (CO2), which is poisonous to a small extent but poison is poison irrespective of its quantity and rest of this, it contains chemicals and added colours and cheap ice-lollies that children prefer to eat also have a same state of quality as hard-drinks.

I can never forget that once in a bet I drank up one litre of ‘coca-cola’ with two ‘samosas’  (stuffed snack) as a result of which I got loose-motions and acidity sticked up my stomach for two days. Ah! What a horrible time was that and my classmates are well known of my childish that once I quickly licked up all of the chilly-sauce available on that table with chowmine (noodles) which really affected me so much. So please I don’t want you to relive my experience.

Avoid excess thirst & stay fit.

Urbanisation and health

Urbanisation and health

Cities have the potential for effective action in health and in improving the quality of life of its inhabitants. Cities must play a vital role to take new public health action particularly in developing health public policy and strengthening community action. Urbanisation is associated with many health challenges related to water, environment, violence and injury, non-communicable disease and their risk factors like tobacco use, unhealthy diets physical inactivity, harmful use of alcohol as well as risks associated with disease outbreaks. The problem is to create a political will for action; the challenge is to deploy the managerial skills and innovation required to pull together the vast human and other resources that a city processes to bring them to bear on the concept of a healthy city.

Urban health

Rapid urbanisation is due to natural growth in population and migration of people searching for better opportunities in cities. In general urban areas offer better education, jobs social mobility and services. However, many people who move to cities are trapped in marginal situations as a significant proportion of them are poor, have large families and are not well educated. The health of the urban poor suffer the most because of both living conditions and high cost of health services. The urban poor face illness and premature death from preventable diseases due to lack of safe drinking water, sanitation, health facilities, safety security, and health information.

Urbanisation and workers’ health

Health should be a right for workers. Health for all beings has been a cornerstone of health public policy, but workers who move into cities for economic reasons and to purchase better services, education and ultimately good health are comforted  by a number of conditions that instead create ill health; both for them and their families.

Human behaviour in complex urban settings

Cities are often centres of health education, research, technology and advanced services. But some of the lifestyle aspects of urban life are

contributing to the rising burden of non-communicable diseases in the region. The rapid pace of urban life may lead to neglect of nutrition and sedentary jobs invite lethargy and provide little physical stimulation; crowded living conditions ignite communicable diseases among the urban poor, as well as social tensions and stress; and heavy road traffic is part and parcel of city’s bustling life and commerce. Thus, the ongoing urban environment may take more away from the people’s health than it gives back – unless a conscious effort and planning are used to create healthy cities.

Healthy lifestyle

Healthy lifestyle can be created by making cities more liveable. Congested areas can be made more environment friendly by having these localities better planned, with more green spaces and safer neighbourhoods; education can be used to encourage healthier nutrition; parks and sidewalks enable healthy exercise and also make travel safer; and health workplaces promote a healthy workforce and also reduce accidents and the attendant social cost.

Urbanisation and injuries

The mixed nature of road traffic in many low and middle income countries – with bicycles, hand carts, motorcycles, pedal and motorised  three wheelers, cars, trucks and buses in varying proportions means that many of the technical aspects of planning, road design, traffic engineering and traffic management needs to be worked-out locally rather than imported. Moreover, there is no speed control specifically for urban areas. The increased use of motorcycles creates greater risk for pedestrians, cyclists and the motorcyclist themselves.

Rapid urbanisation leads to overcrowding transportation and dwelling beyond the planned occupancy. In cases of disaster, it can lead to high loss of life and injuries. Large number of casualties overwhelm hospitals and health facilities. In addition, many cities that have grown rapidly have not taken into account how the hazard make them more vulnerable.

Civil society has a responsibility. Let us rise to the of new world to enjoy the urban life and pay simultaneous devotion to nature and health.
