Mahatma Gandhi is a great and outstanding personality of India who is still inspiring the people of India as well as abroad through his legacy of greatness and noble life.Bapu was born on 2nd of October 1869.Celebrating his 150th anniversary not only by remembering his momentous question of non-cooperation but also knowning his authority on matters of health and diseases as well.

Very few knew that bapu is an author of a health book in gujarathi.Here he discussed all the aspects for an individual to maintain good health and to perforem his duties properly.

-it is the health that is real wealth not the pieces of gold and silver-

Bapu,always wanted to explain complex things in a coordinated and simple way providing the people above and below the board easier way to understand it.

He used basic familiar terms such as air,water,food,

Addictions,bramhacharyas to describe health

According to bapu health is an body ease,the man whose body is free from all disease and carries his nrmal daily routines without fatigue.he should be able to walk ten miles a day,coud digest ordinary simple food.his mind andhis senses should be in a state of hormony

-good health and good senses are the life’s best blessings-

The natural air that we take through the nose to lungs consist of a life giving substance called oxygen and the air that breathe out consist of gasses that may fatal to us if they are not discharged into the atmosphere.Hence explains the neccesisty of proper ventilation

Water is an essential eliment next to air as scarcity of former can live for days but latter provide few minutes to live.mother earth provides sufficient amount of water for survival.In oder to be healthy every one should take 5lbs of water or any other drink in a day.drinking water must be pure.the difficulty is that appearance and even taste of water may not be ultimate measure of purity.the water which appears perfectly harmless in sight nd to taste may act as a poison.the age-old custom of not drinking from an unkown well as well as straingers house is worthacopying.

Saying that ‘food is life’signifies that human body cannot be without water and air but the real nourishment is food.Food can be divided into three classes mainly vegetarian, flesh and mixed.flesh food consist of fowl and fish.a daily routine,milk is a animal product and cannot be included in strict vegetarian diet as it serves the purpose of meat to a very large extinct,a layman doesn’t consider it to be a animal food.similarly eggs are regarded as flesh food but in reality they aren’ a days sterile eggs are produced which are not develop into chicks therefore the one who consume milk sould have no objection in taking sterile eggs

In terms of medical profession,mixed diet is more prefered although there is a growing child,which is strongly of opinion that anatomical and physiological evidence in favour of a man being vegetarian only.his teeth,stomach,intestines….are known to prove that nature meant to be a vegetarian.

Common salt may be regarded as king amoung condiments and it is most widly used condiments.the body requires certain salts and the common salt is also one of them.these salts naturally occur invarious food stuffs but due to the unscientific ways of cooking such as throwing away the water in which rice,potatos or others have been boiled,the supply becomes inadequate.then the deficiency must be madeup by separate addition of salts.

Tea and coffe are not required by the body.the use of tea has originated in china.primarly to ensure the safety,the water is boiled along with grass called tea then it developed golden colour.the colour didn’t appear unless the water is boiled.thus the grass became infalliable test for checking the boiling of water later addition of other tea leaves imparted flavour to water and thus tea is originated.

The intoxicants used in India mainly alcohol,ganja,tobacco,bhang and opium.alcohol is the major intoxicant that is ruining the people by diminishing there senses as well as morals.alcohol can be made locally that it country madeor it may be imported form abroad.this all should be banned.although there are group of people who are in favour of limited and regular consumption of alcohol and belive that it is useful.bapu found no reason in favour of argument.even if we accept this view,there will be a increased vulnerability to people of all age groups.
