The patient himself who recited the Hanuman Chalisa for three hours while doctors removed a tumour from his brain

To point docs to right spot, man recites prayers during brain op


It’s usually relatives who recite religious verses when a patient goes under the knife, but at a private hospital in Jaipur, it was the patient himself who recited the Hanuman Chalisa for three hours while doctors removed a tumour from his brain.

A 30-year-old accountant from Dungargarh of Bikaner district hesitated when doctors told him they’d conduct brain surgery under local anaesthesia, but agreed when they explained that it was the only way they could ensure that his speech would be unaffected.

“He had a tumour in the part of brain that controls speech. We decided to keep him awake and talk to him during surgery to ensure that his ability to speak was not affected. If we noticed even a minor change in his speech during surgery, we would have taken corrective measures. He recited the Hamuman Chalisa all the time, and we operated successfully,” said Dr KK Bansal, senior consultant of neurosurgery at a private hospital.

The surgery was conducted on November 14, but doctors disclosed details of the procedure only a month later after ascertaining that the tumour had been removed and there were no side-effects. Doctors said the man had epileptic seizures for three months. They did a biopsy and diagnosed a grade two brain tumour. Doctors in Jaipur agreed to perform the surgery, known as awake craniotomy.

Last year, a man in Bengaluru who’d lost the use of three fingers played the guitar while undergoing brain surgery to correct the problem.

Saying thank you is best gift you can give yourself

People Who Express Gratitude Have Greater Life Satisfaction, Fewer Visits To Doc And Better Sleep

Without meaning to sound ungrateful, it really is the comedown after the festive cheer: the dreaded thank-you notes. Perhaps you agonise over how to make each sound genuine. Then there is the skill of mustering the convincing fauxthanks for unwanted gifts.

If writing thank-you letters is a task you readily dismiss, you aren’t alone. It tur ns out we express our gratitude more rarely than you might assume. But, however you feel about those festive notes, it is time to knuckle down. Because saying thanks could be the best gift you can give, to yourself and others.

The benefits of gratitude have long been championed in religious and philosophical thinking. In recent years, science shows that people who feel most grateful generally get a psychological boost as a result. They also have greater life satisfaction, fewer visits to the doctor and better sleep.

However, the benefits of actually expressing this gratitude have received less attention. Now evidence is stacking up that shows turning our inner gratitude into action can make our lives even better.

Expressing gratitude to a friend also changes your view of that relationship, making it feel stronger. But the benefits go further than just strengthening social bonds, they can have an impact on health, too. A study of over 200 nurses working in two Italian hospitals found that gratitude expressed by patients could protect nurses from burnout; especially in the emergency room, where personal interactions with patients are typically shorter and less rewarding.

All of this makes sense from an evolutionary perspective. Gratitude is a very social emotion. It sends a signal to others that we recognise what they have done, that we aren’t just freeloading. It might also imply that we intend to reciprocate.

To better understand how people express gratitude, anthropologist Simeon Floyd, at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in the Netherlands staged a large, cross-cultural study spanning five continents and eight languages, including English, Italian, Polish, Russian and Lao Interactions included both verbal and nonverbal expressions of gratitude such as a smile or a nod.

Floyd’s team left cameras in household and community settings and captured over 1,500 instances of social interactions. They found that in every culture, people overwhelmingly fulfilled requests, but expressions of gratitude, such as saying “thanks” or nodding in appreciation, were rare, occurring just 5.5% of the time.

English and Italian speakers had slightly higher rates of gratitude expression than others — 14.5% and 13.5% of the time, respectively.

One explanation for the absence of thank yous in some languages could be a tacit understanding of our social obligations in informal contexts, such as with close friends and family, which makes explicit acknowledgement less vital. Or it could be that we simply don’t realise the impact on others of saying thanks.

High time to drop the excuses and get those thankyou notes done.

Are You Desperately Looking For A Soulmate?

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

Many people subscribe to the idea that there is a single ‘right’ person out there for everyone. Some believe that this is determined, by the stars. There is also the pervasive notion of the ‘soulmate’ chosen by the Creator Himself. Implicit in both views is the idea that human love has its origins in the heavens rather than on terra firma.

What people forget is that the soul cannot mate with anything or anyone. Nor does the soul need a mate. When we speak of the soul, we are speaking of the absolute and boundless. Only that which is limited needs a mate. Why would the boundless ever seek a partner?

Why do people seek a mate? It could be for physical reasons; we call that sexuality, and it can be quite beautiful. It could be for mental reasons; we call that companionship, and it can be beautiful, too. It could be for emotional reasons; we call that love, and that has been legendarily extolled as the sweetest experience. Certainly, physical compatibility, companionship and love can make life wonderful, but if you are honest with yourself, you cannot deny the anxiety that follows such an arrangement.

It is wise to be honest about the limitations and conditions within which a relationship operates. The advantage of being realistic is that when you are confronted by limitations tomorrow, you will find a mature way to deal with them. But, most people create limitations. They employ terms like ‘soulmate’, or proclaim their relationship is ‘made in heaven’. With this level of self-deception, disillusionment is inevitable.

Is there something wrong with marriage? Not at all! Marriage can be a very pleasant experience as long as you know it is not the ultimate. If you have too many romantic delusions, even if you are married to the most wonderful person, it will definitely crash because you cannot delude yourself forever. If you want to live sensibly and joyfully, it is important to remember, marriage is a human arrangement, not a celestial one.

It is true that certain karmic connections may draw people towards each other. This does not mean, however, that these will be ideal relationships. The success of these relationships will depend on the maturity and sensitivity with which we approach them.

I am not being cynical about love – far from it. Love is one of the most beautiful qualities a human being is capable of. Many cultures have suppressed love; others have tried to export it to heaven. But love is of this planet, and it is deeply human. Why deny that?

Love does not need an object. Love is simply a quality. If the person you love is not in your physical presence, you are still capable of loving them. If the people you love cease to exist, you still continue to love them. This means you are using people around you as mere stimuli to find expression for this innate quality. If you bring sufficient awareness to your discriminatory intellect, love is the only way you can be. Love is not about what you do. Love is the way you are.

Love is simply life longing for itself. This longing is essentially to become all-inclusive – boundless. It is only when love becomes all-inclusive that you touch the boundless. And that is when you realise a simple truth: the soul does not need a mate. It never has.

This Year, Resolve To Be Loving And Giving

Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

Another new year is here. All people dream of a happy and fortuitous future. May this New Year be filled with happiness and peace, with less war and conflict than in the year gone by. It’s not enough to pray and hope for a favourable future. We should also be ready to work with alertness, determination and self-confidence. Realising our past mistakes and learning from them, we should move forward and work with enthusiasm. If we put in effort, we will definitely receive God’s grace. Then, we may be able to create a world filled with goodness, peace and love. May the New Year enable us to come closer to God, nature and our fellow beings.

All of us enjoy newness, but what is it that lends something that sense of freshness? It is when our heart has love and openness – that is when we are able to see goodness and beauty in everything.

A garden filled with fallen leaves and dry twigs will cover all the flowers and their beauty will be lost. Wild plants growing in the forest do not require watering or fertiliser. They get their nutrients naturally from the soil. Yet, if we want the same plants to blossom after being transplanted into our garden, we will have to regularly water and nurture them. It is the same with the garden of our heart. Currently the flowers that exude the fragrance of pure love are covered with the dead leaves of selfishness, anger and jealousy. This prevents us from being able to awaken the goodness within us. Let us clear away hatred and jealousy and awaken positive thoughts. Let us nurture a mind that does not harbour past animosities but welcomes everything afresh. If we can do this, we will be able to see newness and beauty everywhere and discover joy in that.

Two friends were sitting in a flower garden. One thought, “My girlfriend would be so pleased if I gave her one of these flowers!” He began thinking of her, enjoying the flower and soon became lost in dreams about the conversations they would have. His friend, on the other hand, was reminded of a time when he had given flowers to his ex-girlfriend: “We loved each other so much. But then she left me for someone else!” Angry, he ripped out a handful of flowers, threw them down and stomped on them. Both friends saw the same flowers. The angry one could not enjoy their beauty.

Everything depends on the mind. If we have an open heart, we will be able to see goodness in anything and enjoy its beauty.

At the end of each day, lemonade sellers, for example, will calculate exactly how many lemons they used, the quantity they sold, and how much was wasted. If sales were poor, they will reflect and find out if there is something else they could sell instead. They are constantly thinking about ways to increase their profits. Similarly, daily, just before going to bed, we should reflect on our day: “Selfish, I became angry and hurt this many people today.” And then we should earnestly resolve, “Let me not do this tomorrow.”

Nurture a mind that finds joy in loving and giving – a mind that accepts criticism with love. This should be our New Year resolution. Those who have this will never fail.
