Way to increase Abundant within ourselves from our own effort and understanding

We, human beings in these modern days are so selfish in doing any acts especially in our relationships like marital, friendship, and parental or whatsoever. We search peace, happiness and energy in the external objects and things instead of trying to find out within ourselves. It is irony of our socialisation and education system we are not told taught to recognise and identify abundant that we have within ourselves.

Reading the below article in the Natural News came to know that increase energy, lose weight, feel happier and eliminate depression by raising the levels of the brain neurotransmitter dopamine with simple dietary changes can be achieved.

Dopamine is naturally produced by the brain and controls the body's movements, stimulates metabolism and proper body weight, supports the circulatory system and governs the brain's information flow. Too little dopamine in the system is responsible for a lack of response in an individual, deadening the ability to feel emotion and creating a sense of indifference. In addition, low dopamine levels slow the metabolism, contributing to weight gain, low energy, sluggishness and depression. Too little dopamine can cause unwanted bodily movements, jerking, twitching and slurred speech. Proper levels of dopamine are necessary to prevent conditions such as Parkinson's disease. In the right amounts, dopamine encourages weight loss and helps the body maintain its proper weight.

Foods that boost metabolism and restore dopamine levels

It's important to maintain proper dopamine levels to enable an individual to experience their feelings of pleasure and have the ability to generate the energy to live life. Adequate dopamine raises the body's energy levels and increases metabolism promoting weight loss and well being. A variety of foods can help boost metabolism while increasing the body's ability to function at its optimal level.

· Proteins are high in amino acids which contribute to the production of chemicals that stimulate dopamine in the brain. Foods such as eggs, fish, poultry and red meats are all high in protein and great for increasing metabolism. Fish in particular, is high in protein and contains healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, which contribute to increased brain function. The best proteins are those that are organic and do not contain antibiotics, hormones or pesticides.

· Red beets restore dopamine levels and produce a sense of well being. Beets contain the amino acid betaine, which acts like an antidepressant, creating feelings of pleasure and joy.

· Apples boost brain power and help with weight loss. Apples are high in quercitin, a potent antioxidant, and may help prevent neurodegenerative diseases and stimulate dopamine production.

· Drink a daily dose of watermelon juice, which is high in vitamin B-6, an important nutrient for dopamine production

· Foods containing folate help the brain produce more dopamine. Good sources of folate are found in most leafy green vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower, lentils, garbanzo beans, black beans, and papaya. Plant sources of folate must be eaten raw to provide enough folate as a nutrient source.

Amino acids, vitamins and herbs boost metabolism by raising dopamine levels in the brain

· Tyrosine is the main amino acid that triggers dopamine production in the brain. Foods high in tyrosine are bananas, strawberries, blueberries and prunes.

· Include a multivitamin containing vitamins B, C and E to help produce additional dopamine supplies in the brain, notes Franklin Institute's, "Science Learning" website

· According to Blessed Maine Herbs, certain herbs are recommended to help the brain produce higher amounts of dopamine, such as fenugreek, ginkgo biloba, Indian ginseng, red clover, nettles, dandelion and peppermint. In particular, green tea contains polyphenols, which can increase dopamine output. These can be taken as supplements or consumed as herbal teas. Because herbs may cause side effects, it is necessary to use care when adding them to any health plan. An herbal practitioner should be consulted for directions how to use herbs and in what dose.

Sluggishness and lack of energy may indicate a serious disease in addition to low dopamine levels. If symptoms continue or do not respond to dietary changes or increased supplementation, see a health practitioner.

Nepalese women deserve to be killed, died, murdered, abused and harassed

In Nepal, most of the Elites and tuppa bata palayeka people who are holding big big positions are VERY SELFISH and ONLY AFTER MONEY, POSITION and POWER and can't think about deprived people and women/girls pain and suffering. It is because their ideology is guided by the religious dogma and doctrine like the Law of Manu (Manusmriti) and think that they are superior and women are inferior. For example, treating women as unequal in a normal practice and phenomena in our society. In the Law of manu it has stated that women, that is, even women belonging to Brahmin, Kshatriya and Vaishya varna are not entitled to upanayan and the study of the Vedas. For them, marriage is equivalent to upanayan and service of their husbands is equivalent to the study of the Vedas in the gurukul [Manusmriti  II: 67]. Even if the husband is morally degraded, engaged in an affair with another woman and is devoid of knowledge and other qualities, the wife must treat him like a god [Manusmriti V: 154]. A widower is allowed to remarry but a widow is not [Manusmriti V 158, 167]. Besides, women are not considered fit for being free and independent. They are to be protected in their childhood by father, in youth by husband and in old age by son [Manusmriti  IX 3]. They should never be allowed by their guardians to act independently [Manusmriti  IX 2]. A woman must never do anything even inside her home without the consent of her father, husband and son respectively [Manusmriti V 147]. She must remain in control of her father in childhood, of husband in youth and of son after the death of her husband [Manusmriti  V 148].

Therefore, knowing these religious beliefs and tradition it sounds to me that in Nepal women/girls are mainly born to be killed, murdered, abused, harassed, discriminated and tortured that's why they don't deserve to be saved and protected. 
Otherwise, our health policy makers , planners and decision makers would understand, internalize and act accordingly as Professor Mahmoud Fathalla, past president of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, said: “Women are not dying because of diseases we cannot treat. They are dying because societies have yet to make the decision that their lives are worth saving.” 
There are many best practice across the globe that has proven as a successful strategy in saving the lives of pregnant women and their newborns which can be replicated and adapted as per the country context but our health policy makers, planners and decision-makers are just trying to do patches kind of activities as per the donor interest.  "Investing in Maternal Health: Learning from Malaysia and Sri Lanka" report published from the World Bank in 2003 is one of the best report which has analysed in detail how maternal and newborn health can be improved even resource poor settings with limited fund if policy makers and planners are committed in saving the lives of pregnant women and their newborns. These two countries in the past 50-60 years were able to bring significant changes in maternal health in their countries by mobilizing community level "Competent, Confident, Committed and Compassion" healthcare providers, MIDWIVES. The report provides the most comprehensive and detailed analysis available on the factors behind the decline in maternal mortality in Malaysia and Sri Lanka in the past 50 to 60 years and the magnitude of health system expenditures on maternal health.
Unfortunately in Nepal even to date we don't have such human resource for health who are fully equipped with "4 C" who can deliver women friendly humanistic care in holistic approach respecting women's birth rights and being sensitive towards their culture and tradition. 
Here is the case from one of the most remote and deprived place of Nepal to back up my views about the situation of women and pregnant mothers. The below news entitled "Maternal health crisis in Bajura" was published on 22 August 2012 in the National Daily Newspaper of Nepal. 
BAJURA: Four women have died within a period of four months in Bajura district due to the lack of adequate maternity service.
According to Sharmila Shah, Auxiliary Nurse Midwife (ANM) at the District Hospital, there are no doctors in the hospital since April.

Thanks to the health service of Nepal, Juna BK (20) of Kotila VDC died last week in Kolti Primary Health Center where she was admitted to deliver baby. “She had twins in her womb but was unable to deliver babies in normal condition,” Assistant Health Worker (AHW) Ashok Singh said, adding that, “If there would have been a doctor for surgery then she would not have lost her life along with the babies.”

In the same way, Tiuki BK of Kailashmandu, Basu Mijar of Kuldaibamandu and two from Pandusain VDCs died since April due to the lack of maternity health service in the district.

According to ANM Shah, regular health check up service for would-be moms has also been halted in the district as the hospital and health centers have been facing scarcity of doctors.

Meanwhile, locals of remote villages have been found indulging in superstitions and visit witchdoctors rather than hospitals even for the delivery cases.

Pregnant women are compelled to work hard as normal persons due to the lack of awareness and social belief. After the transfer of as many as 24 women health workers from Bajura in June, male health workers have been handling the delivery cases. In District Hospital, the vacant quota for two doctors have still remained unfilled.

Since, various governmental and non- governmental organisations have been working in health and awareness sector in the district, all their efforts and money went on vain. “The impact of such organisations in the district is almost zero,” said Sher Shahi, representative of the Civil Society.

No wonder most of the health posts in Bajura district have been running by office assistants. According to health worker Dilram Bhatta, it is common in the district to run the office by an assistant. Bhatta has been the in-charge of the hospital since five-months.

One or 1% like-minded people can changed the status quo

Hundread thousands (100,000) men with FEAR is just a Crowd. One man with courage is more than enough to make it majority that's what Plato, Albert Einstein, Buddha, Dr. BR Ambedkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelsan Mandela, PN Shah, Hitler, Martin K. Luther, Mark Zuckerberg and many more people had done and proven in the history!!

But in our country, we just have crowd of men with full of FEAR with no courage. Therefore, runs everyone after politics, preachers, etc!!

"One man with courage is a majority."

- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and the third President of the United States

We just need 1% dedicated and committed like-minded people to change the status quo of our nation.  But they must be like-minded without any prejudice. ego, selfish and very much committed to make the difference in their society.

Margaret Mead (1901-1978), American cultural anthropologist has rightly affirmed that “Never doubt that a small group of people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

It is very interesting when we look back the history and learn from it. In Nepal, PN Shah at the age of 29 captured whole nation. Siddhartha Gautam at the age of 29 left the palace in search of truth and answer to human suffering and at the age of 35 (6 years after) got enlightenment!

History reminds us that 1% of a group of people has been able to impact the other 99% over and over again—when that 1% has bought into an idea with reckless abandon. In other words, the few can affect the many, with the right people on board." "Here are some example that we can learn from. "During the 1960s, the Civil Rights movement in America changed the course of history for minority groups. When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “I have a dream” in 1963, he was the point man for a movement that within one year would change legislation in the U.S. Believe it or not, it was a relatively small group of people. Millions sympathized with them, but never acted. In fact, only about 1% of the population was on board with the civil rights movement. But that’s all they needed. They marched together, stood together, faced opposition together and they changed history.

During the “Hundred Years War” in France, a teenage girl named Joan of Arc caught a vision from God to lead her nation to freedom. It seemed ridiculous to her—she was a child and a female, both which worked against her. France was divided into three factions and outside armies were bullying the French at will. They were at their lowest point in history. But in 1428, Joan approached a commander and offered her services. At 17 years old, Joan was leading 3,000 French knights into battle, and winning. When she died at the age of 19 she had accomplished her goal. Less than 1% of the French were even behind her, but her troops restored hope to a nation. Without knowing, she led a movement that changed France’s history.

John Wesley wanted to see spiritual renewal in England during the 18th century. Although he was kicked out of the Anglican Church, he didn’t give up on his goal. He traveled on horseback through the country speaking to crowds and organizing groups who responded to his challenge. His goal was to transform the nation by first transforming individuals. It worked. One historian wrote that Wesley almost single-handedly saved England from bloody revolution in the 1700s. He launched the Methodist Church and impacted the British population profoundly...with a small fraction of the people. We are told he had about 1 1⁄2 % of the English people involved." 
However it would be fantastic if our young people can instill in their head HOW POWER they are if they deeply wish to use their strength. 
Why young people? Why not older, more experience people? Good question. Certainly, students need experienced adults to act as mentors and coaches. But, world change often happens through the energy of the young. Consider this:

* Mozart: Composed his first symphony at age 6
* Bill Gates: Started Microsoft at age 19
* Trevor Ferrell: Began Trevor’s Place to feed the homeless at age 12
* John Wesley: Launched the Methodist movement at age 17
* Albert Einstein: Wrote first paper on theory of relativity at age 16
* Mark Zuckerberg: Launched Facebook at the age of 19
* Louie Braille: Designed reading system for blind at age 15
* Josiah: Became a reformer as king of Israel at age 8
* Joan of Ark: Led 3,000 French knights into battle at age 17
* Sagen Woolrey: Started free lunch program for poor at age 12
* Student Volunteer Movement: Pioneer missionaries: ages 18-24
* Cassie Burnall: Stood for her faith at gunpoint at age 17
* Steve Jobs: Launched Apple Computer at age 21
* George Williams: Stared the YMCA at age 23;
