Is junk food a boon or a curse?
It is both a boon as well as a curse, a boon as they have all mushroomed all over the city, so any time you have a guest you can orger these food, but it is not good for your health. ----------- Junk food is a consequence of an unregulated industry. Not that a food industry should be regulated, but that as in any open market, there are products and services that do not necessarily have the best interests of the public at heart.

Health tourism is not a curse. Thanks to the availability of lower cost treatments. Many people have been able to receive treatments quickly and cost effectively. His excel…lency President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam during his visit to Kerala put forward ten important points to the Government of Kerala with the intension of overall development of the state. These points have been widely heard and discussed among the masses. Of this one important point was Propagation and development of Health Tourism in the state. It is estimated that about 3.5 lakhs foreigners are coming to Kerala as Tourists in a year. Steps should be taken by the state government tourism department to increase the number of tourists from 3.5 lakhs to at least 10 lakhs within the next few years. If that goal is achieved no doubt about 20 lakhs unemployededucated youth in the state could be absorbed in that department directly or indirectly. At the same time the state exchange could be about 3000 crore rupees in its account statement as foreign exchange earning according to the Hon'ble President. Hon'ble President also insisted that the state should be keep up the traditional system of tourism in fact at the same time steps should be taken to propagate Health Medical Tourism through out the state. While promoting Medical Tourism in the state, importance should given to traditional Vaidya Sastra ie. Ayurvedic Medical Tourism. As a matter of fact medical Tourism is not a new subject to Tourism Sector. History reveals that in ancient Greece during the period of 'Askalepiyosis' itself there prevailed Medical Tourism. During the said period people from the surrounding regions including Mediterranean Region's were making medical tourism to Greek also with the intention of praying in front of the 'Queen of the Heavens' who can sheen and cure all source of diseases. Step by step the medical tourism has reached to the present 20th century stage particularly as an industry. Now a days the states are extending to the people through Medical Tourism all sorts of Medical Treatment despite to rest and entertainment. In the state of South Africa , Medical Tourism is tide up with Safari Tourism which is much popular there. South Africa is also famous and one among the leading nations of the world where Plastic Surgery is in an advanced stage and few centers are very famous in that field. It is estimated that by 2012 India could achieve a target of 200 Crore Dollars per year in the Medical Tourism sector. This will be about 8% of the Gross National Profit (GNP) of the country. Thus in this sector the growth rate per annum will be about 30% as estimated. In the capital city of Trivandrum, there are few private Super Speciality Hospitals were treating the patients coming from Mali etc. is provided in a cheaper rate comparing with the other neighbouring nations. These nationals are coming to this hospital, since such treatment is most available in their country. Recently certain Super speciality Hospitals in India have treated few children hailing from Pakistan comparatively in a cheaper rate for Heart Diseases. Since Pakistan does not have sufficient such hospitals there. This venture could also help stabilize the drained bilateral relationship between India and Pakistan. ACHIEVEMENT OF AYURVEDA MEDICAL TOURISM 1 To expose the characteristics and importance of Ayurveda to the tourists coming to India In India, Kerala is the only state taken much interest to retain Ayurveda Medical System in its present shape since 5000 years of its origin. Efforts are taken by researchers / practitioners all over the world in search ofdevelopment of modern Medical Science. These developments are taking placein the English System of Medicine. Thus this is the high time we should takesteps to popularize among other nations also the importance of Ayurveda whichis originated and developed to the present stage in India. The medicines which are commonly used in the English System ofmedicine is mostly made out of Chemicals which badly affects thehuman body in future even though it shall cure the diseases quickly. Whereas the medicines manufactured in the Ayurvedic System of Medicine the ingredients are mainly taken from plants, metals and minerals and animals which would not affect badlythe human body. This fact is to be brought to the notice of the foreigners coming to India as Health tourists. As a matter of fact there is no doubt if we shall chart out a plan to propagate the importance of Ayurveda Medicine among the foreign tourists in the future taking them to confidence that this system shall provide them body fitness aswell as pleasure and joy in the patients mind. In terms the shall be able to popularizethe system through out the world. 2. How to remove the misunderstanding about the Ayurvedic System of Medicine In the name of popularizing the Ayurvedic System of MedicalTreatment in the world, we are displaying the picture of half naked picture of"Madamma" laying down in the ground to undergo massage etc. If this sort ofpractice is allowed to grow future, there is no doubt it will badly affect theAyurvedic System and at the same time leads to giving a bad impression aftercalling it as Sex Tourism in India. Also it shall be a measure by which we are disgracing the traditional good name of Ayurveda Vaidya Sastra of India. In Ayurvedic System of Medicine treatment is provided to persons for maintaining good health. The places selected for giving this sort of treatment is resorts and places which are naturally gifted with good climate etc. Through this treatment the body and mind of a person could be made fit to defend the body from any sort of diseases. This fact should be taken in confidence in the mind of the nationals as well as foreign tourists. 3. It create opportunity for Employment Instead of going behind the foreign investors for aid etc. with the intention of creating more opportunities to the nationals, in the field of Ayurveda we should find out resources with the help of development of health tourism in our country itself. Also most of the Ayurveda Medicine should be cultivated in our country itself as a mixed crop along with the traditional crops. This will no doubt indirectly help the agriculture worker to get rid off from the present tragedy of helplessness and suicide. 4. How shall we can attract the Indian Nationals to bring close to Ayurvedic System of Medicine Nationals will prefer more what is endeavoured and supplied by nature itself to a country than what is brought from other countries. It will be liked more by the nationals when they understand that more foreigners are coming to India to study more about Ayurveda and Health Tourism. 5. Not only Treatment to maintain Health Only Ayurvedic Medicine not only used for maintaining health alone but also these are used as preventive measures by which shall cure the diseases such as rheumatism of various types, ulcer, nervous diseases, allergy, psoriasis, eye diseases, diseases normally found among the old aged. Due to the very reason in recent times the number of health tourists coming to India have enormously increased. It is beyond doubt that the importance of Ayurvedic medicine and treatment is not at all a hidden subject even to the foreigners. 6. How effective the System of Ayurvedic Medicine and Treatment A cheap advertisement about the Ayurvedic Medicine can achieve only a reverse effect to the progress of system and only the business community shall gain profit out of that. At the same time the fame and dignity of Ayurvedic Medicine will diminish. The medicine produced with the intention of gaining profit alone cannot contribute much to this system, whereas it can give an adverse effect only to the system as a whole. All possible steps should take to produce genuine quality Ayurvedic Medicine. By that we shall be proud in front of the world community. If quality medicines are produced and supplied that shall be a step further to promote health tourism in India. DISADVANTAGES OF AYURVEDIC HEALTH TOURISM 1. It shall promote activities connected with anti social elements in the society Some times Ayurvedic Health tourism shall become a curse to the society. For example there are numerous massaging parlours are coming into existence here and there without following the required standard resources. It will be a blow to the good name achieved through ages in the traditional way of treatment. If this sort of ventures are allowed to grow without any check it shall lead to activities connected with anti social elements. 2. Illicit production of Ayurvedic Medicine are increased In the name of Ayurvedic Medicines there are so many complaints and individuals are engaged in producing Ayurvedic Medicine which is normally below standard and this cannot be treated as genuine one. It is a well known fact that Ayurvedic Medicine has no side effect. Taking these facts as an advantage some companies are producing medicine without including all the ingredients needed for a particular medicine. Such act of irresponsibility shall lead to defame the Ayurvedic Medicine. Now a days in each and every small shops people shall find Ayurvedic Medicine with sub stand. These sorts of Ayurvedic Medicines will defame the genuine traditional Ayuvedic system. The only way to get rid off from this practice is to make proper Government rules. By which the quality of medicine should be tested in the level of production, manufacturing sales and should be carried out by the authorised medical shops only. 3. The most beneficiaries are always the famous medicine producing companies In the name of health tourism well known companies are making economic growth without any check. Even though they are earning more income out of that, the fruits of those benefits are not at all reaching to the common people. There are so many Ayurvedic Hospitals coming into existence in the private sector only. The motive behind it is always economic growth only, not the benefit of the common people. Due to the very reason private agencies prefer to be in urban sector only comparatively ignoring the rural sector. Therefore it is very difficult to find doctors in the rural areas. The rural people find it very difficult to get treatment when they needed. PROPOSALS The following proposals are put forward by which Ayurvedic System of Medicine and Treatment shall be made progressive through the Health Tourism. 1. Take measures by which the good standard of Ayurvedic Medicine in the country should be checked in all level. 2. Ayurvedic Hospitals and Medicine producing centers should be owned by the Government and avoid permitting the private agencies to start such hospitals. 3. Exact rules by which the less quality medicine should be checked and those who are violating the rules should be taken into book. 4. Provide quality treatment and medicine and supply costless genuine Ayurvedic Medicine through registered makers. 5. Ayurvedic Health Medicine Centers / Parlors be owned by the Government itself and avoid giving permission to the Private Sector. Of these above said proposals, kept in mind there is no doubt in the tourism sector Ayurvedic Health Tourism can contribute more advantages in the field of using our beautiful nature of the country, earning in the field of foreign exchange, advanced travel facilities and in the communication sector, and other related sectors like cultural, information technology etc..
In my oppinion health tourism can be boon or curse .it is related to how we use it
Nuclear energy that mankind boasts so much about is in reality, a boon, as well as a 'curse'. The only good side of it is that it provides us nuclear energy which is said to …be one of the alternative sources of power in the future. These energy concepts are hopeful, of course. But the improper handling of nuclear wastes results in major accidents that may capable of dismantling an entire city or region itself. So the improper handling of these wastes makes it a curse but there is nothing in the world which just has +ve aspects , so if the people are a little cautious about the disposal of the waste products it turns out to be a boon.....!!
monsoon rains are important for the agricultural uses of the area. farming can supply vast populations because the monsoons bring water and cause flooding that renews the soil…. of course, flooding also disrupts man's settlements and causes deaths, so you get a lot of bad with the good. Monsoon can be a boon if our water management is proper, it is a curse because our water management is highly of poor standard. Some areas perennially suffer from drought and water scarcity whereas some get marooned when it rains. Water harvesting by way of construction of reservoir on mass scale, river networking, digging & modernization of canals, better drainage system etc. are certain measures which need government's urgent attention. If these areas are given due attention, Monsoon could be bountiful as it kills India's scorching heat and helps farmers grow the crops.
Health tourism is a boon.
i feel it is a curse more.... . media emphasises on celeb activities more rather than any social activities. . it affects teenagers especially by influencing them to try out… new stuff whether dangerous or not. . it makes major issues on any kind of religious issues without any reason and that even doesn't make sense...
INTERNET - BOON OR CURSE Internet has entered lives of millions of people and effectively transforming their complex tasks into simpler ones. Earlier doing research involv…es several tiring library trips. But, with the advent of internet it seems like a cool breeze. Similarly, before the arrival of internet communicating your distant living loved ones was a tedious as well as expensive task. But, emails have made things easier and affordable at the same time. In earlier times, military intelligence used to hold the services of internet. But no one can easily explore the entire cyberspace with computer attached with modem and a telephone connection. Internet has made the world a smaller place to live. Moreover, those who are successful during this internet boom have also made quite good money. Internet is undoubtedly offering a whole lot of advantages but there are negatives too. Personal communication is being affected the most. Another serious issue which is growing adversely with internet is pornography. A recently conducted survey has revealed that approximately 30% of websites carry sex based stuff which is a serious threat for our future generations. It really needs some immediate step and look out for the appropriate remedy. In order to keep check on such sites censorship software is also available in the market, such as Net nanny, Surf Watch etc. But, unfortunately government is not taking the issue of pornography on internet seriously and it is affecting the young minds adversely. They are becoming addicted about it and are also getting distracted from their studies. Thus, it is a serious matter and needs to be considered effectively. On the other hand, internet is also playing key role in the constantly growing economy as innumerable internet based companies are evolving and giving business as well as employment. Although, internet offers some mind boggling benefits, still its negatives are unavoidable and needs to be considered instantaneously
If you are over 40, it is a blessing. If you have ever taken antibiotics, you are probably alive because of it. Ever have a cavity filled? BLESSING!!! The fact you can even as…k that question is a blessing of technology.
Some of each I suggest. Advances are rarely so clear cut as to say one or the other.
IT has many positive factors and it also have many negative factors so i think it is neutral
It is a boon for AYUSH medical industry.
Depends how you look at it. A boon for my behalf!
1. Plastic is light-weight, durable, low-cost, and has a wide variety of application ranging from a pen, which you use to write on the paper, to the waste paper basket, into w…hich you throw the paper. Plastic undoubtedly has been the one of the greatest achievements by man. (Well, not comparable to the wheel though!) Anyhow, plastic has proved to be a boon in various ways. When you enter a hospital, you can never fail to notice plastic vials, bottles, syringes, tubes, and many more articles made of plastic; those which are used to save many lives everyday all around the globe. As I did mention above, plastic has replaced metals and glass as the primary material used in the manufacture of pens. To use metals to manufacture pens would be costly and using glass, though cheap, it is not a durable material. Plastic is used in the manufacture of thousands of home use articles such as boxes, cases, bottles, containers, tumblers, chairs, tables, and many more. It also, in some way or the other forms a part of almost all electrical equipment, be it the sheathing of a wire or a plug casing, or even the keys of your cell phone. Plastic finds itself in automobile, and aircraft parts; in kids toys, and everyday articles like a brush or a comb.

It depends on your point of view. Personally, I think they're a curse - it seems like kids would rather sit glued to a computer screen, chatting to their school-mates, than do… something more energetic !
We are in the age of science and technology. Man cannot live without the aid of science. Science has so much engulfed our lives that nothing can take place in our day to day w…ork without the help of science. Our food, transport, learning, administration, recreation and social life are all linked with science in various ways. To answer the question whether science has come to mankind as a boon or as a use for ruin (bane), one should know what science exactly means. Science is said to be a systematic classification of experiences. We, men wonder at the various things and events happening around us. We get doubts; what are they? These questions are the basic seeds for science. Then starts the thinking, reasoning, analysis, synthesis, comparison and contrast and finally the truth emerges. Scientists say there is a scientific method for everything and there are inevitable steps to be followed: (1) Observation (2) Hypothesis (3) Experiment (4) Theory and (5) Proof. All scientists have, in a way, followed these steps. The aim of science is search for truth, and to know things, hitherto unknown. A scientist does not accept ideas, simply because, they were accepted by others earlier. Great discoveries are a result of reasoning. A lot of patience and observation are required. Civilization, as it is today, is the result of a number of discoveries made in the field of science. The invention of them simple wheel has resulted in our modern industrialization. Electricity, as a source of energy, has revolutionized the world. Medical science is so much advanced that the average life of an Indian has risen to 62 years from 35 years. Science has contributed to the success of our green revolution and now we have enough food for all. We have enough clothing and better shelter too. All this is possible, because of science. Radios, T.C s and cinemas which entertain us are the products of science. So a common man has to conclude that science is a boon to mankind. There is the other side of the coin also. T.L. Peacock says; "I almost think that it is the ultimate destiny of science to exterminate the human race". That is the other point of view. It is science, which gave birth to destructive weapons like dynamite, guns, rifles, rockets, atom bombs, hydrogen bombs etc. it is science that gave electrical power and nuclear power. If nuclear power is used for peaceful purposes, there is no need for fear. But after all it is human to err. Can anyone say that there is no chance of the destruction of a Hiroshima or a Nagasaki being repeated? If that happens, will not science be a bane of humanity? Leaving that apart, another creation of science is pollution of the environment. Industrialization with the aid of science has polluted air, water, food and the atmosphere. The ozone layer is giving threatening signals. So here is a case for man to consider science as a cause of ruin. Man is a rational being. He can safeguard himself against all odds. That is how he was able to conquer and control all other creatures in the world. So let us believe that his wisdom will prevail and he would reason out for the well being of his kind on this planet. When the universe reveals more secrets to man by means of science, there is hope that the present man will become a superman and eventually science would be only a boon and not a bane of his life. Science without conscience is death of the soul.
