Vaccination induced brain damage

This boy was only two month old, when he received his first dose of vaccination, called as DPT. He was unlucky, as he reacted badly to the vaccine. The vaccine caused massive brain damage. He is now six year old. Taking flower remedies since 4 months. He had large tonsils. He was advised surgery. He gets convulsions often. His intake of food was very less. His recognition of sounds was very less. His ability to express emotions by making any gesture or sound was hardly there.
There is much improvement in his condition. He is able to sit without support now. Stands with support for hours now. Claps while other children clap. Expresses joy or fear. If left alone in room, he makes sounds to call people. Eats very very well. No more enlarged tonsils. Convulsions less than before. He used bang his head against any object. Now he has forgotten that. Healing continues.....We are not sure how much of the brain function we can revive with the help of flower energy remedies...time will tell.

Monsoon is here already! but no earthen fragrance!

Last week, it started raining. We thought it was just pre-monsoon showers. But on the night of the 7th June, it did rain heavily. Once again, our area was flooded.

I was particularly trying to smell the earth! But, no sweet fragrance of earth with new, fresh rain! I was so disappointed. How can there be any fragrance? We have not left an inch uncovered! Every day, this city is adding tons of cement on the surface of earth! The earth cannot breath! It feels suffocated! Therefore, no smell. I feel sad. No mitti ki mehek and no dancing in the rain!

The other day I visited many plant nurseries, as I wanted to buy earthen pots for our little city garden. Almost all nurseries had only very expensive plastic pots. The plants, I guess love to be in earthen pot, so that the mud/mitti can breath!

Mud, Mitti, earth...disappearing from urban scene. I miss it far too much! I was brought up in an environment of huge garden and many trees in the surrounding area. I miss all this year after year in the city which has lost touch with nature and nurture!

Finally more than 700 Mangoes we got from our tree this year! Mango are very sweet. Excellent quality. We all had great time watching it grow on the tree. The tree was a great attraction to kids this year as they were constantly making attempts to catch a mango or two. Kids were coming well equipped with a long stick, may be stones! Early morning, first thing to do was to look out in the garden for fallen mangoes! Finally removing most of the mangoes was a big task, took two whole days of labour.
We are looking forward to repeat this experiment next year also.
