They are like two Divine beings and we should pray them with all sincerity.

We should work hard to be successful in our life.

They have made us like the clayman making pots from clay.

We can never forget them even if we are in a chaotic world and feel ourselves to be swayed.

All efforts should be given to keep them happy and contented through out their lives.

Then we will be blessed by the Divine and will see light.


With that light we can dispell all darkness from our path.

By serving them we will find flowers on our way.

The way though difficult will be simple.

With positive minds we will go forward and all goals will be achievable.


They work hard for us only to keep us happy.

In this world of delusion we should not forget their beauty.

We should do all works keeping them contented and happy.

They will be happy and we will be blessed keeping ourselves always clean and tidy.


By our love and affection they will live longer.

The love and affection which they have taught us we should give them so in return.

They are the two sweet flowers in our home.

Even if they will go their fragrance will never be gone.

Home Sweet Home

A home is a place where we live for good with our dear ones. It is the place having an emotional address of my grandparents and of course mine own. It can’t be denied that home is the supply base for a man’s physical and mental needs. It is from home that a man inherits the cultural and social tradition,learns how to cope up with different situations of life. The positive influence of a home makes a perfect social being bubbling with the spirit of benevolence and humanity. It is the negative influence that turns one to the way to hell, devastation and chaos. Home thus plays a great role in shaping the personality of a man making him either a god or a beast.

At home the child is reared under the guidance of the parents and the elders. They influence it in an immense manner. The child in the very beginning leans to follow the steps trodden by its superiors, watching them from every corner with minute details. If the home corner is a really cozy one , perfect abode of peace and tranquility the baby grows up in a healthy manner. From the very beginning dreams loom large in his eyes and he determines to follow the foot prints of his superiors. In the long run it is noted that he is a perfect man in the true sense of the term.

If the home front is busy with constant war and tussles the baby can’t find the path, hover in the dark, and finally can’t but choose the wrong direction failing to thrive properly. It is not the baby who in the long run becomes a devil it is the people of the home who goad it to the way to destruction, misleading it at every moment with absurd ideas. The baby who regular watches its father to beat its mother in a sate of intoxication and the mother in return using filthy words in a state of perpetual despair can never be a healthy baby in all respect , the hell beckons it all the while.

It is often noted that parents who are generous may lead their child to the way to generosity. It is absolutely true that a generous parents can make a generous youth with a broad outlook and a soft corner. The child that notices its parents to show kindness to every man irrespective of caste and creed must be a perfect social being in the later years. The child that watches parents doing menial deeds is sure to do every thing in a bad way.

Thus if we want to make our home a real sweet place next to Paradise we must brood hard that home is a temple and it is our duty to maintain its serenity and holiness. If we are successful in our mission to make our homes temples we are sure have a great generation that would make history in the time that is about to come.

This human candy craze started with our prehistoric fathers stealing honey from beehives which was quite dangerous but quick to satisfy their sweet tooth cravings. From beehives, man started to enjoy the sweet juices of plants like sugarcane and corn while mixing them with water, fats, nuts and even chocolate. This eventually laid down the bricks for all the candy varieties we know today. Then and now, man always knew what to look for in candy which is simply a sweetness regardless of the ingredients used.

Familiar sweetness is,of course, more appealing such as what those traditional sweets offer. These days,we want to munch on on our Caramacs and suck on our Jumbo Banana Split Lollies because they’re sweet both to our tongue and our memory. Just one mouthful of jelly beans is enough to make us travel back to those days when we stood with wide-eyed joy at the counter of our favorite candy store while trying to decide which of those goodies were on our own personal sweets menu for the day.

Indeed, man has come a long way when it comes to satisfying his insatiable sweet tooth. Today, those unforgettable retro sweets are a celebration of all things sweet and lovely.

Craving Sweets

Specially, it seems like that Craving sweets is natural with women. Unfortunately, it can get out of hand which leaves people wondering how they can stop craving sweets. If you are wondering the same, perhaps you would benefit from knowing why you have sugar cravings.

Why Do You Crave Sugar?

First of all, you have to understand that this is biological in nature. When you feel tired or depressed, the sugar levels in your blood are low. This means that the feel-good hormone, Serotonin, in your brain is also low. The body reacts by craving sweets. Once you eat or consume sweets like chocolates or cakes, the brain releases the Serotonin. Unfortunately, the brief bursts eventually subside and since you are still depressed or tired, you will still feel the need to eat sweets.

Craving sweets may also be attributed to severe stress or adrenal fatigue. Not everyone understands what adrenal fatigues means. Basically, this results from severe stress. When people have little sleep or practically no sleep or when they are overworked, they will generally experience severe fatigue. Accordingly, they will also experience intense sugar cravings.

Your diet can also cause sweet cravings. If you have been on a low-fat low-carbohydrate diet for a significant length of time, chances are your body will become insulin resistant. When this happens, the body will send signals to the brain prompting you to eat more sweets even though you already have ample glucose supply in your blood. Many people who use appetite suppressants are not aware of this. They don’t know that by constantly craving sweets, they also increase their fat deposits even if they are eating less than usual. However, they do not feel the need to stop the craving since they figure they are already addressing the problem by eating less.

Perhaps, It is in Your Genes

Many researchers believe that craving sweets may be attributed to a gene variant that helps in maintaining and handling sugars. Constantly craving sweets may caused by this gene urging you to hunger for sweets like sodas, cakes and chocolates.

The researchers and scientists from University of Toronto claim that this particular gene, the glucose transporter type 2, actually assists the brain in regulating food intake. They conducted a study on two groups of people – one group with regular gene and the other with a gene variant. They then compared the eating habits of these two groups.

The first group consisted of 700 individuals who were in perfect condition. These people were asked to make a record of their diet and eating habits over a course of one month. The other group consisted of about 100 overweight individuals who were in the early stages of diabetes. They were not taking any diabetic medication. They were asked to record their eating habits over three days, and then to record their diet again for another three days after the lapse of two weeks.

Researchers discovered that regardless of their health and condition, the people with the gene variant ate more sweets than those people with regular gene. However, they did not see any difference in the fat or protein intake of either group.

Craving Sweets – How to Deal with It?

There are some things that you can do in order to curve your sweet cravings. You are likely to place your health at risk if you keep on gorging on chocolates. So, how do you stop yourself from cravings sweets?

a. Eat small meals every two to four hours. This way you will avoid cravings. Just make sure that you keep your meals small or light. Otherwise, you would gain a lot of weight.

b. Relax. You need to relieve yourself of stress. So, you should give yourself time to relax. Hit the gym. Watch a movie. Go for a walk. Read a good book. Stress can trigger sweet and carbohydrate cravings. You should make sure that you have a stress management plan set up, so you can relax every now and then.

c. Exercise! Regular exercise can relieve stress. You don’t have to go to the gym. You can go for a walk or take up jogging. Just make sure that you exercise at least every other day.

d. Avoid skipping meals. Many people avoid meals or restrict their calories thinking that they are going to lose weight faster. In truth, they are only actually starving themselves. Craving sweets also comes in the same territory. Do not deprive yourself of food especially if you are hungry.

Craving sweets is not a whim. Often, there is a biological reason behind an incessant craving for sugar and carbohydrates. If you are constantly craving sweets, you should try to determine what is causing the need, so you can address the problem properly.
