Greetings to all!

Welcome to our enthusiastic k way readers, as much as we are eager to get connected with all of you, we are also bonded to all of you!!

Wishing that the festive season of good wishes and happiness continues always!!

But although wishes and sweets were exchanged...I feel the festive mood of the general population has minimised considerably, which is really of concern!

Though I am not that old to talk about flash backs ....I do remember the fulfilled enthusiastic early morning wishes, the excitement on the arrival of new clothes to show off to our friends and also the mild envy on the neighbours 100 wala crackers .....last but not the least eagerness to run to the table to see the wide spread variety of food and the mouth-watering sweets. All this excitement has definitely dwindled!!!

Why so?? Very simple the so said technology makes our kids to choose and buy their clothes, sweets and food items online and through apps!! Even wishes to people are shared online with a button pressing "To all contacts" Yes definitely we can wish millions but we have absolutely lost connectivity!!!! Well as much as technical world is helpful; it is making the simple happy life head towards a complicated one.

For example, a simple walking has become a money-spending affair at a gym.

Let’s attempt to change our sedentary lifestyle routines on festive days at least. Going to one and others place to share the wishes, cooking for our loved ones on these special occasions should at least be attempted.

Being sedentary is the major cause of the upcoming life style disorders, rather than anything else. Dear friends try to make these changes at least during festive occasions as we all live in a fast forward world!!! Let’s live a connected life.

We’d love to know what you think about our monthly newsletter, feel free to connect with us through feedback@kauveryhospital.com.
