“ENVIUS” ENTERS “INDIA BOOK OF RECORDS”!


Introduction
Lord Almighty the great Creator of the Universe and humanity in all HIS compassion makes everyone to be at peace and prosperity, joy and happiness provided he loves all and serves all, helps ever and hurts never. I have the staunch conviction on this and I have all what I deserve.

ENVIUS THOUGHTS BORN

With nothing in particular in expectation I launched a blog through word press on February 28th 2015 and titled the same as ENVIUS THOUGHTS raising the curiosity of the viewers as to what is this ENVIUS probably wrongly spelt! The blog cn be accessed through https://nvsr.wordpress.com
My first post was “TRYST WITH LIC” – almost an autobiography of my official life started with my hunt, getting a job in LIC, allowing it to slip and again after a couple of years landing in LIC till I retired as a Deputy Zonal Manager on my superannuation. Since that post received tremendous response, at the instance of my journalist son from Bangalore I decided to continue.
I decided with the blessings and grace of Gods and Goddess of Learning from all over the globe to continue my Blog posting uninterruptedly as long as possible. It was also decided to post poems in English-may be original or translated from other languages by me to English-on all days from Monday to Saturday and on all Sundays a Sunday story.
By God’s immense grace I could do what I wanted to post every day without a break right from the day that I started. Today this is 1024th day and1071st post.
Viewership grew gradually and as of now overall view score is 1,20, 000 from more than 210 countries. I have hundreds of followers who look forward for my daily post.
Hundreds of comments have been received and a few are continuing to make their comments on a daily basis. My esteemed viewers are aware of my consolidation of such comments and they have been published in several parts as several Sunday stories. For every fiftieth post, I give a summary of several aspects under the title TALE OF A BLOGGER. 21 parts are over and the 22nd tale on the 1100th post is due on 14th January 2018.
Lord Krishna in Bhagawath Geetha says:
“Karmanyeva aadhikaarasthae
Maa palaeshu kadhaachana”
Action is thy duty fruit is not thy concern.
With that in mind I am
going on with my Blog work without any great expectation except the joy of observing the overall views soaring higher and higher. With every 1000 views forthcoming I share with my viewers in this manner:
“ Dear all,
ENVIUS THOUGHTS crosses 1,20,000 views
I am glad to share with you that with the 56th view at 14.45 hours today viz Saturday the 16th December 2017, total views of ENVIUS THOUGHTS crossed ONE LAKH AND TWENTY THOUSAND (1,20,000) from more than 210 countries around the world on the 1023rd day and 1070th post, thanks to your support and encouragement.

BANANA FLOWER USLI!

A little more than two decades ago, while I was in service with the premier Public Sector Organization –LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA- there was an occasion to stay in Taj hotel at Mumbai along with my colleague Shri Akbar Ali.

As we went for our lunch we were attracted by a special menu-BANANA FLOWER USLI- and as we ordered and the dish came we were shocked to find a 50gram side dish known as the title of this story shown above at a cost of Rs250?-!!!!

Almost twice a month we do this called வாழைப்பூ உசிலி- (vaazaippoo usili) in our home may be the family requirement of 400 grams at a cost less than rs.25!!!!!!!!!!!

Having ordered we could not return and we took it with a pinch of salt as it was not even one tenth of the taste our people prepare at home!

We know that banana is one of the best vegetables created by the Lord Almighty for the benefit of all living beings- humans and animals. Every part of a plantain tree- banana tree- is of great use in one way or the other.

Its Roots, stem, leaves, banana ripe or otherwise, flower- every part is of use to the people. How nice if only every part of every individual human being is of  positive use, help and service to every other individual. The society will be enjoying peace and harmony, poise and prosperity, health and happiness!

Let us have a look at the plantain.

  Health benefits

Heart health

Bananas are good for our heart. They are packed with potassium, a mineral electrolyte that keeps electricity flowing throughout our body, which is required to keep our heart beating. Bananas’ high potassium and low sodium content may also help protect our cardiovascular system against high blood pressure.

A 2017 animal study conducted by researchers found that the potassium in bananas is also linked to arterial effectiveness; the more potassium we have, the less likely our arteries are to harden. In the study, mice with lower-potassium diet had harder arteries than mice consuming a normal amount of potassium. Arterial stiffness in humans is linked to heart disease.

Depression and mood

Bananas can be helpful in overcoming depression “due to high levels of tryptophan, which the body converts to serotonin, the mood-elevating brain neurotransmitter,”  vitamin B6 can help our sleep well, and magnesium helps to relax muscles. Additionally, the tryptophan in bananas is well known for its sleep-inducing properties.

Digestion and weight loss

Bananas are high in fiber, which can help keep us regular. One banana can provide nearly 10 percent of our daily fiber requirement. Vitamin B6 can also help protect against type 2 diabetesand aid in weight loss. In general, bananas are a great weight loss food because they taste sweet and are filling, which helps curb cravings.

Bananas are particularly high in resistant starch, a form of dietary fiber in bananas may support gut health and control blood sugar. Resistant starch increases the production of short chain fatty acids in the gut, which are necessary to gut health.

Exercise 

For replenishing energy and electrolytes, bananas can be more effective than sports drinks. One looked at male athletes competing in long-distance cycling races. They compared athletes refueling with Gatorade every 15 minutes to athletes refueling with a banana and water. The athletes’ performance times and body physiology were the same in both cases. But the banana’s serotonin and dopamine improved the athletes’ antioxidant capacity and helped with oxidative stress, improving performance overall.

Vision

Carrots may get all the glory for helping our eyes, but bananas do their share as well. The fruits contain significant amount of vitamin A, which is essential for protecting our eyes, maintaining normal vision and improving vision at night. Vitamin A contains compounds that preserve the membranes around our eyes and are an element in the proteins that bring light to our corneas. Like other fruits, bananas can help prevent macular degeneration, an incurable condition, which blurs central vision.

Bones

Calcium in bananas is helpful in keeping bones strong.Bananas contain an abundance of fructooligosaccharides. These are non digestive carbohydrates that encourage digestive-friendly probotics and enhance the body’s ability to absorb calcium.

Cancer

Some evidence suggests that moderate consumption of bananas may be protective against kidney cancer. Women who ate more than 75 servings of fruits and vegetables cut their risk of kidney cancer by 40 percent, and that bananas were especially effective. Women eating four to six bananas a week halved their risk of developing kidney cancer.

Bananas may be helpful in preventing kidney cancer because of their high levels of antioxidant phenolic compounds.

Pregnancy

The potassium in bananas is correlated with women giving birth to baby boys. A study looked at 740 women and saw that those who consumed high levels of potassium prior to conception were more likely to have a boy that those who did not.

Bananas may also help prevent gestational diabetes. Lack of sleep during pregnancy can contribute to gestational diabetes.. But the magnesium and tryptophan in bananas can help ensure a good night’s rest.

Banana peels: edible or poisonous?

 

It turns out that the biggest risk from a banana peel might really be slipping on it. Banana peels are not poisonous. In fact, they’re edible, and packed with nutrients. “Banana peel is eaten in many parts of the world. “It contains high amounts of vitamin B6 and B12, as well as magnesium and potassium. It also contains some fiber and protein.”

It is important to carefully wash a banana peel before eating it due to the pesticides that may be sprayed in banana groves.

Banana peels are usually served cooked, boiled or fried, though they can be eaten raw or put in a blender with other fruits. They are not as sweet as banana flesh. Riper peels will be sweeter than unripe ones.

Other banana facts

Bananas may have been the world’s first cultivated fruit. The banana plant is classified as an arborescent (tree-like) perennial herb, and the banana itself is considered a berry. A bunch of bananas is called a hand; a single banana is a finger.

There are almost 1,000 varieties of bananas,  Nearly all the bananas sold in stores are cloned from just one variety,

Botanically, there is no difference between plantains and bananas. But in general use, “banana” refers to the sweeter form of the fruit, which is often eaten uncooked, while “plantain” refers to a starchier fruit that is often cooked before eating.

                               (Technical information from Google Guru)

 

 

Tamil Nadu is to become the number one area in the world in banana production beating Ecuador and Indonesia if post-harvest losses were cut down and more marketing efforts were taken.

Areas in Tamil Nadu where banana is prominently cultivated are Theni, Trichy, Erode, Thoothukudi, Coimbatore, Kanyakumari, Thanjavur and Dindigul. The varieties cultivated include Grand Naine, Virupakshi, Sirumalai, Rasthali, poovan and Red Banana. Most of the bananas produced here go to the Gulf countries.

 

Raw banana is used for preparing different side dishes – in Tamil parlance- poriyal, koottu, varuval and so on!

Similarly the stem- known as vaazhaith thaNdu- is used for pachadi, porial and koottu. When its juice is taken regularly, no question of stones in kidney, urinary track etc.

Nendhram variety from Kerala – raw or ripe- is known for making chips all over the country!

Coming back to our banana flower usli, here we find the banana flower ready to be cooked. Last Sunday we had at home that triggered my thoughts and the result is today’s Sunday story that was presented above.
