Dr. Aniruddha D. Joshi, our beloved, Aniruddha Bapu, held a lecture on the topic of “Self Health” on December 13th, 2014 at Andheri Sports Complex, Mumbai. The lecture was surely an eye opener for a majority of the huge number of individuals who attended that day. Each minute of the time spent listening to Bapu’s lecture that day, was time well spent. We are aware of the fact that many persons attended the lecture themselves but many also missed out on attending that day due to various reasons. We have made an effort to summarize the contents of Bapu’s lecture and have presented it here for the ready reference of all. We shall delve into details about each topic separately in the near future.
Bapu began his lecture by telling us at the outset that he was aiming to highlight “What mistakes are being committed by us” which are affecting our health in an adverse manner and “How we can improve?”
He assured each one of us that “Everything CAN BE REPAIRED”.
He asked us to reflect on the fact that the number of diseases and the number of person unwell in our society has risen very sharply. Many more people are suffering from different kinds of diseases as compared to the past.
The RURAL-URBAN difference in disease occurrence has disappeared. Some of the diseases which were more common in the cities only have now started affecting even the villages in a very bad manner. Industrialisation of the villages has increased the pollution in the villages and so all persons living in the villages are now facing the same health problems as the city persons.
“HEALTH IS NOT VALUED TILL SICKNESS COMES.” Dr. Thomas Fuller
We get worried about health only when we ourselves suffer from diseases. When we see some family member affected by a disease, we feel bad for him but never consider the fact hat we too can suffer from the same disease and so must change our lifestyle to avoid getting the same disease too. We do not learn from others experience and improve our health.
