Thane City History

Throughout recorded history the city has left its mark under various names. However, it's present-day name is said to be derived from Sthan or Sthanaka, the capital of the Shilahara kings of Konkan.

The earlist evidence of Thane appears in the works of the Greek geographer, ptolemy, who, in his writings ( 135 - 150 AD) refers to a place called Chersonesus, which, according to researches, is the area around Thane creek.

The city crops up again in the Middle Ages and slabs and copper plates dating back to the period have been discovered in Thane. One of them, dug up from the foundations of Thane Fort in 1787, dated 1078 AD, is apparently a land grant from Arikesara Devaraja, sovereign of the city of Tagara, wherein he address the inhabitants of a city called Sri Sthanaka.

The great Venetian traveller Macro Polo too, in the course of his wandering set foot in Thane in 1290 AD. He describes the city as a greatkingdom, which apparently had a well-developed port, for he mentions a continous traffic of ships, and merchants trading and exporting leather, buckram, cotton, and importing horses.In fact, the present day Ghodbunder is said to be the site where horses were unloaded from ships.

Friar Jordanus, a great traveller, who visited the city between AD 1321 and 1324, describes it as being under a Muslim governer. He leaves a detailed sketch of early Christians in Thane and refers to the martyrdom of four Christian priests in the region, more than 200 years before the Portuguese ever set foot in India.

The celebrated Ibn Batuta and Abul Feda, contemporaries of Friar Jordanus, also came here. They refer to Thane as Kukin Tana and speak of its fame as a port from which ships sailed to the gulf carrying a kind of cloth called 'Tanasi' which was produced in Thane. Duarte Barbosa, a noted traveller, described Thane by the name Tana Mayambu 25 years before the portuguese conquest.

He paints a vivid picture of the town as one of Moorish mosques and temples, with many pleasant gardens.
The portuguese came to Thane about 1530 and ruled for over 200 years till 1739. Thane was then known as Cacabe de Tana. Work on the Thane Fort began in 1730.

The Marathas, who conquered Bassein and Thane in 1737 and 1739, held sway over the region till 1784, when the British captured thr Fort and ruled Thane, then also called Tana. They made it the headquarters of the district administration with a district collector stationed in Thane. The Thane Muncipal Council was formed in 1863 when the city had a population of 9000 souls.

After independence, Thane grew slowly and attained the status of an industrial town in the 60's and 70's. There was also a corresponding growth in trade, transport and construction activities, which picked up tremendously in the 80's. The 90's has seen the city burgeoning ahead, with great stride in construction and housing. The population has also increased manifold and Thane now occupies pride of place as a prime suburb and is all set to make its mark in the next millennium.

Thus, when driving out for a trip, it's necessary to make sure your vehicle has been equiped with enough devices for security.

Reversing Camera

Some people may pay little attention to its important role. A reversing camera, also known as a rear view camera, usually works when you put the car into reverse. The unit can be connected to a monitor of an in dash car DVD, or a car LCD monitor can be installed in the dashboard to display the image of the rear situation of the vehicle. When you begin to move your car backwards, the monitor will automatically show you a clear picture of the environment behind your car. Then you don't have to worry about whether there is something lying behind the car, or someone trying to cross the street behind the vehicle. The reversing camera is useful to help you avoid crashing on anything or anyone by accident.

Other Car Cameras

In addition to reversing camera, there are some other car cameras available for people to enhance the security of the vehicle. Mounted in the vehicle, car cameras are used to monitor all the activities in or around the car. On the monitor in the front of the vehicle, you can view the whole situation in the vehicle so that you can be clear about what your passengers are doing. Such function is especially helpful when there are children in the car, because most children are so curious and active and they may do something that looks dangerous in the driving. The use of car camera will make your passengers and your vehicle much safer during the driving.

Rear and Side View Mirrors

Besides, it will be perfect to use rear or side view mirrors as well as reversing camera to complete the reverse. However, if you only use rear or side view mirrors to do the job, there may be some bind spots in your view particularly when there are not much space around the vehicle.

Easy Meditation Techniques

09 June 2013

Image Source:
Here are some easy meditation techniques to get you started:

Technique 1: Breathing Meditation

  • Sit in quite place where you won’t be disturbed. Wear comfortable clothes and find a comfortable chair (you don’t want to be so comfortable that you’ll be tempted to fall asleep. That’s why it’s better not to mediate in bed).

  • Close your eyes

  • Focus on your breaths - in and out, in and out, in and out. You can just pay attention to your inhaling and exhaling or you can count your breaths. Breathe naturally through your nose and just pay attention to your breath as you inhale and again as you exhale.

  • When your mind starts to wonder (and it will), just focus on your breathing again.
NOTE: Some find it easier to focus on an object instead of their breathing. You can focus on an object such as a flickering candle if that is easier for you.

Technique 2: Quick Meditation

Quick Meditation Techniques Really Work

Quick meditation can provide just as much benefit as those programs that require hours of meditation each day. We live in such a crazy busy world where we’re bombarded with information 24/7. All the modern conveniences we’re fortunate enough to have don’t necessarily give us more down time. We’re busier than ever.

You probably thought you had to spend hours a day to meditate and that you couldn’t really see results for years. That’s Not true. You can change your life in just minutes a day, and you won’t have to wait years to feel the benefits.

There is so much conflicting information available about the proper length of meditation. The truth is that you can gain benefits just by meditating 1 or 2 minutes at a time. If you meditate for a minute 8 to 10 times a day, you will start seeing results. The key is consistency; you have to do it every single day.

If you’re one of those people who just can’t seem to find 15 minutes for a meditation session, just commit to incorporating meditation minutes throughout your day (every day).

During the day, take a 1 or 2 minute meditation whenever opportunity allows – when you’re at a traffic light, when you’re watering flowers in the garden, during TV commercials, or when you just need some clarity.

The good news is that you can’t get it wrong and that it gets better the more you do it whether it’s a minute or an hour. Be consistent and meditate every day.

Benefits of Meditation

One of the most significant benefits of meditation is that it helps quiet the mind. Why is that important? When you relieve your mind from your thoughts and become still, there is no resistance within you. As your resistance subsides, you free your mind from worry and struggle. This is what inner peace and happiness feels like.

Why else do we meditate? Releasing your resistance can bring on a whole host of benefits to you spiritually, emotionally and physically. You’ll start to see huge changes in your life – you’ll start attracting the things you want and you’ll want to maintain your newfound positive state so your old negative thoughts will no longer take over.

Another one of the great meditation benefits is that it is a fast and reliable way to help you focus on now and just allow whatever happens to be okay. The more you meditate, the more you will be able to carry this feeling of allowing into your daily life.

That’s Huge! It helps you to embrace 'what is' instead of 'struggling against’ something. Once you have started this awareness journey you can’t go back – and that’s a very good thing.

Other Benefits of Meditation:

  • Promotes feelings of happiness
  • Reduces stress
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Enhances your ability to learn
  • Eases pain associated with tension in the body
  • Lessens anxiety
  • Helps you gain clarity and insight

  • Boosts self confidence
  • Helps you sleep better
  • Diminishes PMS symptoms
  • Reduces chronic pain
  • Slows down the aging process

Meditation Myths

Don’t let these common meditation myths prevent you from trying this powerful life changing tool. Have you held these common meditation misconceptions?
  • It’s for those “new age” or “super religious” people: Millions of people of all different cultures and backgrounds meditate in the US and worldwide. Almost all successful people understand the benefits of meditation and incorporate it into their lives.
  • It's too hard: You'll be surprised just how easy it is to learn how to meditate. If you can close your eyes and breathe, you can meditate.
  • I don't have time: You can get all the benefits of quick meditation as you do from those who meditate for hours, as long as you do it consistently.
  • My friends and family will think I’m weird: Your friends and family will be in awe of the wonderful changes they see in you and before you know it, they’ll be asking you for meditation advice.
You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain - try meditation and reap the benefits.

Heart Care and Cholesterol Control

20 May 2013

Image Source:

Heart Diseases and Hypertension which lead to heart or other organ failures has been on the rise for the past 2 decades. People above the age of 40 have been suffering from such problems due to their unbalanced dietary habits. Its always advisable to control these factors if you want to reduce your risk.

Preventing Coronary Diseases

When there are excess deposits of fat, cholesterol or other substances in the inner wall of arteries, the arteries narrow and harden into a condition known as astherosclerosis, the most common cause of heart trouble. A planned diet and regular exercise are the key to prevent atheroclerosis.

Friendly and Unfriendly FATS

FAT should not exceed 30 per cent of your total calorie intake, which includes a maximum of 10 per cent saturated fat and 10 per cent mono-unsaturated fats. Saturated fatty acids in full-cream milk and red meat increase your cholesterol level. Use non-fat or low-fat milk and milk products instead of full-cream milk and avoid sources of saturated fatty acids like lard, butter, cream, palm oil, coconut oil, ghee and vanaspati.
Mono-unsaturated fats that lower cholesterol as well as prevent formation of blood clots are present in olive, canola, peanut and mustard oils. It's best to use these while cooking.
Omega-3, a fatty acid that prevents atherosclerosis is present in foods like herring, mackerel, salmon, tuna, soyabean, walnuts and butternuts. Take these regularly in small quantities to prevent atherosclerosis.

Cutting Cholesterol

Dietary cholesterol should be limited to 300 mg per day. Since it largely comes from animal products, consumption of non-vegetarian foods, whole milk and milk products hould be restricted. For example, an egg has 250 gm of cholesterol and it is not advisable to take more than two to three eggs a week.
Take healthy alternatives like chicken, fish, beans, vegetable, fruits, bread, pulses, wholewheat flour, cereals, rice, millet, skimmed milk and skimmed milk products and vegetable oils like corn, sesame, soyabean, sunflower, canola, olive and mustard.
Heart disease is less frequent among those who eat high carbohydrate and fibre-rich foods. Carbohydrate and fibre-rich foods. Carbohydrates should provide at least 55 per cent of your daily calories. Foods like bread, chapattis, cereals, rice and dals provide an adequate amount of carbohydrates.

How to control Chest Pain:

  • Boil 4-5 pods of garlic in a glass of milk and consume the garlic pods with milk daily to avoid chest pain.
  • Pound the dates with the seeds and eat them every day.
  • Increase the intake of ginger and lime in your diet.
  • Pound urad dhal to powder and eat it regularly.
  • Drink a glass of milk mixed with kadukai powder every night before going to bed.
  • Take a spoon of tulsi juice with honey in empty stomach every day.

Juicing For Your Blood Type

19 May 2013

Image Source:
Ever wonder why a particular diet works great for some people but not others? Well now we know! Finnish scientists recently discovered that molecules which cover the surface of blood cells and determine each person's blood type are energized by different nutrients. In other words, certain foods are better suited to certain blood types. Thus, eating – and juicing - according to your blood type can be effective in lowering weight, boosting energy, and relieving GI problems.

according to your blood type has been an intriguing theory for decades as presented in the book, Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type by Peter D'Adamo, N.D. This article briefly reviews the foods that are best for each blood type, with a particular emphasis on fruits and vegetables and juicing recipes.

There are 4 blood types: O, A, B, and AB. Type O is the "oldest" blood type according to D'Adamo's theory, set in our genes when we first emerged as hunter-gatherers. Type O's have the hardiest digestive systems which consume mostly meat. Type A people come from the later development of agrarian society which adapted for the optimum digestion of all kinds of plant food. Type B folks are descended from nomadic people who raised herds and adapted to eating both plants and meat. Type AB arose most recently in our evolutionary history with digestive systems with both A and B blood type characteristics.

Type O's do best with a high protein and low carb diet. Their digestive systems need lean animal protein for optimal health along with certain fruits and vegetables, but only a minimum of carbohydrates. Since their digestive systems are high in acid, coffee and processed sugar is to be avoided. Rigorous exercise makes O's feel at their best.

Foods that don't do well with O's are: wheat, corn, beans, cabbage, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, avocado, eggplant, mushrooms, olives, potatoes, mustard greens, sugar, bacon, ham, and pork, caviar, lox, herring, and octopus, cashews, peanuts, pistachios, dairy, cereals, pasta, oranges, melon, strawberries, apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, vanilla, vinegar, ketchup, mayonnaise, pickles, coffee, distilled liquor, all soda, and black tea.

The best ingredients for Type O juices are cherries, leafy greens (particularly kale, spinach, and broccoli), bananas, blueberries, figs, mangos, and plums. The sugars naturally found in these fruits and vegetables combined with their alkalinity will not increase the acidity in the type O constitution. Here are some great juice recipes for O's:

20 cherries, pitted
1 leaf kale
1 stalk celery

2 mangos, with skins, without seed
1 banana, remember not to juice bananas as they will clog your juicer – blend them
1 spear broccoli

People with type A blood have a less hardy digestive system, and don't process meat well. They do best with vegetables and fruits as well as whole grains, tofu, and legumes. Animal protein and dairy products tend to rot and ferment in their digestive tracts, and the toxic bacteria backs up into their tissues and muscles, causing digestive distress. Type A's have less hydrochloric acid in their stomachs which is why they do not properly absorb Vitamin B12 which is found in red meat, although B12 is also found in vegetable protein foods such as Spirulina, soy, and seaweed.

The best exercise is not a vigorous workout, but rather calming, centering exercises like Tai Chi, Hatha Yoga and golfing. Type A's should avoid meat, dairy, sugar, white and whole wheat flour, corn oil, cottonseed oil, peanut, safflower and sesame oil, brazil nuts, cashews, pistachios, garbanzo, kidney, lima, navy, red beans, tamarind beans, cereals, pasta, cabbage, eggplant, lima beans, mushroom, olives, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, yams, bananas, coconuts, mangoes, melon, oranges, papayas, plantains, rhubarb, tangerines, gelatin, pepper, vinegar, wintergreen, ketchup, mayonnaise, pickles, pickle relish, Worcestershire sauce, beer, distilled liquor, seltzer water, all sodas, and black tea

The best Type A foods are berries, figs, plums, avocado, pears, peaches, broccoli, carrots, collard greens, kale, spinach, garlic, soy products, pineapple, and only moderate amounts of fish and poultry. Type A folks do really well digesting grains and beans such as green beans, black beans, black-eyed peas, lentils, and soy. Snack on nuts and seeds.

3 cups pineapple
1 pear
2 leaves kale

5 carrots
2 spear broccoli
1 thumb ginger

People with blood type B have very tolerant digestive systems. They do well with meat, plant, and dairy foods with only a few exceptions. D'Adamo highly suggests that type B's eat turkey rather than chicken because the later has a protein that directly interferes with type B metabolism. They should avoid corn, buckwheat, lentils, peanuts, and sesame seeds, as these foods will tend to make them gain weight. Just like the Type O's, Type B's tend to have a problem with wheat products and nuts.

Foods that are particularly good for B's besides red meat and turkey are liver, eggs, seafood, especially deep ocean fish such as cod and salmon, flounder, halibut, sole, licorice tea, soy products, olive and flaxseed oil, oatmeal and puffed rice. Foods to avoid are corn, lentils, black-eyed peas, garbanzo beans, peanuts, sesame seeds, buckwheat, wheat, shellfish, tomatoes, tofu, artichokes, avocados, olives, pumpkin, radishes, tempeh, oil of canola, corn, cottonseed, peanut, safflower, sesame and sunflower, coconuts, persimmons, pomegranates, prickly pears, rhubarb, starfruit, allspice, almond extract, barley malt, cinnamon, cornstarch, corn syrup, plain gelatin, black and white pepper, tapioca, ketchup, hard distilled liquor, seltzer water, all sodas, amaranth, barley, cornflakes, cornmeal, cream of wheat, kamut, kasha, rye, seven-grain, shredded wheat, wheat bran, and wheat germ.

Great type B juices include leafy greens, beets, carrots, sweet potatoes, peppers, eggplant, bananas, cranberries, grapes, plums, watermelon, papaya, and pineapple.

¼ watermelon, without rind
10 grapes, seeds and all
4 leaves mint

5 carrots
½ red pepper
1 thumb ginger

And finally the rarest blood type is AB which has only been around for the relatively short period of 1000 years. AB blood is a result of the intermingling of disparate groups. AB's combine the best and the worst of A's and B's - most foods that are bad for A's and B's, are also bad for AB's, with the exception of tomatoes. Like Type A, AB's produce less hydrochloric stomach acid and thus do not do well with a lot of animal protein, yet some is essential. Therefore, portion size is important, and with less frequency. Be sure to take bromelain, a digestive enzyme derived from pineapple, to assist with the digestion of your animal protein meals. The best meats for you are lamb, mutton, rabbit and turkey. Also, avoid smoked and cured meats.

Foods to avoid are red meat, kidney and lima beans, seeds, corn, buckwheat, wheat, chicken, cornish hen, duck, goose, ham, heart, partridge, pork, veal, venison, quail, anchovies, barracuda, beluga, bluegill bass, clams, conch, crab, crayfish, eel, flounder, frog, haddock, halibut, herring (pickled), lobster, lox (smoked salmon), octopus, oysters, sea bass, shrimp, sole, striped bass, turtle, yellowtail, cheese, ice cream, sherbet, whole milk, corn oil, cottonseed oil, safflower, sesame, and sunflower oil, filberts, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame butter (tahini), sesame seeds, sunflower butter, sunflower seeds, adzuke, black beans, fava beans, garbanzo, kidney, and lima beans, black-eyed peas, cornflakes, cornmeal, kamut, kasha, corn muffins, buckwheat kasha, barley flour; artichoke pasta, soba (buckwheat) noodles, artichoke (domestic & Jerusalem), avocado, white & yellow corn, black olives, peppers, radishes, mung bean & radish sprouts, bananas, coconuts, guava, mangoes, oranges, persimmons, pomegranates, prickly pears, rhubarb, and starfruit.

The best AB foods are tofu, seafood, dairy, green vegetables, spirulina, sea kelp, and pineapple. Great AB juice recipes are:

20 cherries, pitted
1 leaf kale
1 stalk celery

2 mangos, with skins, without seed
1 banana, remember not to juice bananas as they will clog your juicer – blend them
1 spear broccoli

10 smart eating habits to energise your lifestyle

16 May 2013

Image Source:
Most of us have a busy work schedules and a dozen other commitments to look into.

But, to do justice to all these various aspects of your life, you MUST pay attention to your diet and health. How you eat your food is as important as what you eat. So, the next time you sit down to eat, enjoy your meal by keeping these pointers in mind.

Energise your lifestyle

1. Eat slowly; chew your food well

It takes 20 minutes before your stomach sends a clear message to your brain that you're full.

If you take the time to chew your food well, you will find you end up eating less. Ideally, you should have smaller, frequent meals as opposed to larger, infrequent ones.

2. Eat more

If you want to lose weight, starving yourself does not help -- you need to eat well. Surprised?

Here's the explanation: When your body doesn't receive the required nutrients, your metabolism slows down. Metabolism is the rate at which you burn calories while resting. So, if you don't eat enough, fewer calories will be burnt and there will be less fat loss. You should eat small meals at regular intervals to keep your energy levels high. Eat till you are satiated (at the same time, don't forget what we suggested in Tip No 1).

Get MORE out of your cardio workout

3. Eat less red meat

Red meats are high in saturated fat and should be avoided by people with high cholesterol. Chicken and fish are the best meats to consume.

Fish is better than chicken because it has antioxidants. Antioxidants are organic substances that include vitamins C, E, A and carotenoids; carotenoids add pigment to some fruits and vegetables. For instance, carrots wouldn't be orange without them. Beta-carotenoid is the most popular of carotenoids. Antioxidants help prevent cancer, heart disease and stroke.

These meats can be baked, grilled or roasted. Frying will add unnecessary fat.

4. Prevent constipation

Add fibre to your diet; this adds bulk to your food and prevents constipation. Whole grain foods like oatmeal, bran, wheat germ, brown rice, fruits (especially with their skin), prunes (dried plums), etc, are all good sources of fibre. Home remedies for constipation including the following: Have guavas with the seeds.

Have honey in a glass of milk twice a day.Have one tablespoon of corn syrup in a glass of water. Corn syrup is actually corn starch, which is primarily glucose. It is used in making candies, jams and jellies because it does not crystallise like sugar. Corn syrup is available in any well-stocked supermarket.

Lifestyle tips for diabetics

5. Have onion and garlic

Onion decreases blood pressure and garlic decreases cholesterol. Any amount and form of onion and garlic will give you the benefits of their properties, but a raw garlic clove taken on an empty stomach in the morning is the best.

6. Use less salt in your cooking

Use minimum amount of salt for cooking if you have high blood pressure. Salt also causes water retention. This means your body will retain water if it is not receiving enough.

After all, it still has to carry on the normal functioning of the organs and, if you are not drinking enough H2O, then the body starts keeping it.

Water being taken in other forms, such as, soups, dals, drinks, etc, is retained for later use. Bloating and puffiness are all signs of water retention.

Sensible Diet Habits

7. Have calcium-rich foods

Use skimmed or double-toned milk and milk products as these contain less fat. Double-toned milk has lesser fat than toned or full cream milk.

In the non-packaged variety, cow's milk is just as good as skimmed milk; it is definitely better than buffaloes' milk as the latter contains large amounts of fat. You should have between one and two glasses of milk a day.

Other sources of calcium and protein can be taken instead of milk, if one is allergic to it. Calcium rich foods include almonds, figs, red kidney beans (rajma), mustard greens (sarson ka saag), etc. Proteins can be found in meats, sprouts, soya, dals, etc.

8. Switch from maida to whole grains

Replace maida products with whole grains, whole wheat, soya breads, etc, as these have a good amount of fibre; fibre helps in binding cholesterol, which helps in less production of bad cholesterol. Whole grain foods like oatmeal, bran, wheat germ and brown rice, fruits, especially with skins, prunes, etc, are all good sources of fibre.

Too much fibre may cause loose stools, so you have to monitor your individual intake accordingly. Medically, approximately 25 gm of fibre a day is enough to help maintain your digestive system.

A good indicator: four slices of brown bread contains five grams of fibre; so does one large banana or orange.

Dos and don'ts for migraine attacks

9. Have foods that contain iron

These include red meats, especially liver, fruits like watermelon and pomegranate, vegetables like spinach, beans, beets and broccoli, whole grains, dried fruits, especially prunes, sunflower seeds, etc.

10. Dos and don'ts for migraine attacks

You may have heard some of these before. But the best good food habit, which we all seem to overlook, is to actually taste and enjoy the flavour of the food with your emotions instead of just your tongue.
