A Healthy Child Makes a Happy Home

The house was always noisy with three musketeers around! There was never a dull moment with siblings up to something to keep the parents busy! Either someone had fallen, or one was hungry or the homework was not complete and the vacation was coming to an end! You guessed it right it was none other than yours truly and the younger brothers who raised the din from morn till night! Also, the name ‘The Three Musketeers ‘was given by one of the maternal uncles who were a frequent visitor to our home! I now look back and admire the patience and painstaking efforts of our parents who raised us to do well in our lives!
It was monsoon time and there were mosquitoes especially in the evening those days! One day the youngest brother fell prey and  was knocked out leaving us wondering what we could do to help! Formulations of Allopathic medicine were administered but with little relief except bringing down the body temperature during the day time and return of high fever by late night.  Our team had fallen short by one player and thus there was little that could give us joy. We missed his presence in the game of Cricket which was played in verandah of the house often knocking down utensils in the kitchen. Parents took time off to attend to him and we would do our bit after returning home! Since he fell ill, there was a kind of hush and unfortunately this continued for almost a month as we too fell prey to Malaria one after another! It was a dreadful time as the entire house had fallen silent, and the constant activity that one noticed went missing! There were no cricket matches, no school to attend, very little entertainment and a general lull all around.


In the meantime all efforts were being made by our parents to bring relief by way of trying some trusted Ayurvedic formulations from Dabur like ‘Chyawanprash’ for regaining strength! While we were suffering from Malaria some home remedies like cinnamon, black pepper , basil leaves and honey were crushed and mixed in hot water and were given to us at least three times a day! Gradually we recovered and were back to our old noisy ways! It was a time when everyone reverently wished that we recover and bring the house down with cacophony and shrieks!


Lessons learnt early in life paved way to adopt a natural way of life like always eating fresh food, taking enough exercise and supplements like trusted  Dabur   Chyawanprash,  to make the immune system strong, improve the overall digestion, and providing a shield from the cough and cold and general ailments! It has now become a companion for life!

  4. Of all Diwalis, this diwali I missed my sister and my other cousins, because all of us used to burst crackers together at our place and this year there was no one around. Having been in a family where the sibling and I used to keep doing something or the other, specially during these festivals, it feels weird for find a quiet home!

  12. This reminds me that the last dabba of Chawanprash is over and I need to get one in my next grocery shopping. I forget to give it to my kids...though it doesn't look attractive, both my kids love it. And yes, a healthy child makes a happy home. There is nothing worse than a sick kid for working parents.....sigh!
