People Living Along Ganga River More Prone To Cancer

A recent study conducted by National Cancer Registry Programme under the Indian Council of Medical Research revealed that people living along the banks of GangaRiver in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Bengal are more prone to cancer than anywhere else in India.

On How to Overcome Hatred – Dada J P Vaswani

Think of two people who have hurt you, made you angry or let you down recently - two people about whom you still feel animosity.

Now ask yourself: what is my animosity doing to me? Do I feel happy holding on to it? Does it make me feel happier? Does it improve my sleep? Is my life better, richer, more meaningful because of my resentment?

If the answer to all the above questions is 'No', then take a courageous decision.

Let go! Walk away from the disappointment and the bitterness!
What should you do when faced with betrayal, hurt, anger or disappointment? You can choose to react differently, by taking responsibility for your own emotions and feelings. You do this in full awareness that others do not influence your feelings. You choose your own. We have to learn to let go of disappointments and get on with our life. We need to forgive.
