Fruitier than ever!

”Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.”Khalil Gibran

I was wondering about it the other day, what really is a fruit? Edible stuff  grown on trees, that comes in various colors and shapes. The stuff your parents say is healthy that children often find it in their lunch boxes. As I progress in my life, I come to the thought that  a fruit is more than just this.

Fruit, can be thought of as a reward for your hard work, the happiness for your sorrows, the gift for your patience or the medicine to your pain. This is what i have figured out through some pondering. Most fruits are sweet and this is achieved only when a seed is buried in the dirt and darkness and struggles to reach the sunlight. Our efforts in life follow the same course. The more willingness and sincerity we put it,   only than we can expect a fruitful result. 

”Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet” — Jean-Jacques

So few days ago, my mom brought two very expensive and weird sounding fruits. I have never heard their names but one one them turned out to have a common name which i knew. Tamarillo and Cherimoya. Uh? Do you know these people? 

Just so interesting are their benefits and the fruits themselves are beautiful. Cherimoya is also known as custard apple and yes i’ve eating this fruit. Its really sweet and is one of my most desired fruits. On the other hand tamarillo is something  new for me. Never tried it because mum brought them for my aunt who is sick. Like other fruits, these ones have their own benefits which fight diseases and keep you healthy. 

Ever tried any of the two? Which one is your favorite?

You may want to check out these  fruits if you weren’t aware like me and can also introduce a new fruit here. Comment your opinions!!

Obese or anorexic…are you one of them?

Anorexia3

Eat to live, Don’t live to eat..

One of the major health issues includes these two eating disorders: eating too much or not eating at all. These are two extreme habits of eating which leads to numerous health hazards. 

 Parents and the youth of this generation should take this topic in consideration and care for their younger generations. This is something our teenage girls should be kept aloof of that taking after slim celebrities is not a good practice. In doing so teenage girls decrease their diets and ultimately stop eating. Anorexic people tend to fear food more than losing their families or going on a war. On the contrary obese people eat much more than they are required and find it really difficult to stay away from food.

Yesterday ,in school, we held an awareness campaign about this issue. It was to make people aware about the fact that eating more or not at all than required is dangerous. Parents and students were educated about this topic and even we raised funds for donations. Me along with other students sold coffee mugs,pins and shirts printed with our self designed logo. The money collected were than donated to the local Diebeties Center for people who cant afford the cost of treatment.

It was truly a great experience and i felt really touched by it. It was a lesson for me that we all should be thankful if we don’t fall in any one of the two categories. Also if you can afford what you want, than why not help those can’t afford more than basics needs.
