Diet for Dialysis Patients

Patients on dialysis needs to take care of their diet to stay healthy and avoid complications. They are very likely to develop other health related issues because their kidney is already non functional and they are depending on an artificial mechanism.

The diet is designed so as to maintain a balance of electrolytes, minerals, and fluid in patients on dialysis.

Most dialysis patients urinate very little or not at all, and therefore fluid restriction between treatments is very important. Without urination, fluid will accumulate in the body and cause excess fluid in the heart, lungs, and ankles.

Patients on dialysis need a high protein intake to maintain adequate nutrition. Patients on dialysis can become malnourished and this often means a poor outcome.

The diet will help dialysis patients feel as good as possible.

Contrversies and Yellow Journalism

Our news media has no shame in publishing any type of lies against anyone. The latest example is the Kavya Madhavan, Santhosh Madhavan Semi nude pooja controversy. Its soo stupid and absurd. Still the link is spreading like wild fire. Are we promoting them ? Is it ethical to promote such yellow journalists.

Techie Fun

Technopark is a place with the highest density of techies in the world. Around 20,000 techies in an very small area working day and night. But life is not monotonous for them.

Technopark conducts an event called the Tech a Break every year, which is the fun event in technopark, where the techies get to enjoy for 2 weeks.

The recent event was Tech a break 2008. There were many events like group dance, singing competitions, sports and games.

Incremental service delivery

In the early days of software, people used to sell software and then forget about it. Service was not a concern. There was no proper feed back mechanism. Different versions of the software would be released, in which the client had to replace the old installation every time a new version was released.

Then the process began to change. The concept of service pack started to become popular. A Company would sell a software and then would release a service pack after a few months, which will correct the bugs in the existing installations. Sometimes they also add features.

Which car do you want to buy ?

After the indian markets opened up many new car models were released in India. Till them it was only maruti 800, fiat and ambassador. But now we have a large range of cars to choose from and that presents a lot of problems. We are not experts

Then I decided to buy a car. Maruti Swift Dzire was released a few days ago. I decided to do a test drive and was impressed by the cars performance. The price is less and its feature packed.

After all swift dezire is an Indian car. May be some engineering is done by Fiat, and suzuki did most of the body work. But still its an indian car.

Behind the screens

Movie stars have got many fans. People are crazy about their favourite stars in their favourite movies. But how many of us are aware of the work that goes behind the screens.

The actors and actresses are mere puppets in the hands of a director. The key people behind a film are the script writer, screen play writer and the director. All other come after these 3 fellows.

Notebook was written by script writer Bobby Sanjay, two brothers. The film got many awards You can find an interview with Bobby Sanjay here.

Anjathey Review

I went and saw anjathey on the first day itself. I saw the movie cos the same team had done the hit movie, chithiram pesuthadey. It was also a good movie. Anjathey is a thriller. And dont get deceived by the posters, there is not even a single romantic scene in the movie.

Anjathey is superb in terms of the script, the way the story is told, and the climax. The movie has taken full use of the steady cam, and the shots are very realistic. Never seen such wonderful steady cam work in any indian movie.

Narain has acted really well in anjathey. He is suits Tamil films better than malayalam films. He has a tamilian attitude to his looks and acting style.

Desires and their timings

There was a time when i needed something badly and I was ready to give up everything for the stuff that I loved. But time was against me, the social situation was against me and there was no way in which I could get to my objective.

But now the situation has changed, and there is something that I am interested in very much. I can have it any time i need, but now I dont feel like taking the pain to get it.
