My grandpa’s teaspoon of paste

    When I understand the things as I grow up, I got to know my grandpa is having a teaspoon paste daily in morning and in night with milk. I was very curious to know what it is. Sometime I tried to get that teaspoon paste by myself by pushing chair or stool but every time someone came to me and gave me understanding that this paste is not for you, first you should learn how to chew. You cannot swallow this paste. It was a secret for me what is that paste, which my grandpa and my parents are having it daily basis twice but I can’t, some time I got the taste by my grandpa fingers. I found taste something different, taste was sweet and sour. My parents was also taking this paste mixing in milk, and drank whole glass of milk.
    When I started chew, I got the teeth’s in my mouth. I asked to my grandpa can I have this paste and I got it first time half teaspoon of paste and the taste was not that good like mango. I asked for milk and I drank it with that paste, then only I got to know why they are taking milk with this paste. Now I started to take half teaspoon paste with milk in morning but not in evening. As I got started yellow milk in night, after sometime I got to know this is turmeric milk and it increases immunity.
    Later I got to know this paste is called Chyawanprash, I was very curious to know the story about Chyawanprash. My Grandpa told me long time back in India maharishi Chyawan has invented the recipe of Chyawanprash it give power, it heals inner body and helps internal cell system to develop stronger. So I can fight against any illness as my immunity power in increasing.  Its and Ayurvedic recipe and we can also prepare it home, but I told why should we mess at our home when we are getting ready made from market.
    On 4th Nov. 2014 I completed my 10 Years, Now I am 10 Year old and now I am taking Chyawanprash twice as my grandpa is taking and having turmeric milk as well in night. I thought it was enough for my body but my perception was wrong. As we came to Gurgaon from Bangalore, the weather of Gurgaon was horrible, it was too hot. I was feeling like why we came to this place from Bangalore. As Bangalore weather is pleasant round the year. In hot weather I can’t have food in afternoon, I was weak and I got viral from my bench mate (who share my bench at school). I got viral for 14 days, my parents took me to the doctor and got all the medical examinations, but you know what doctor says – if you can’t have proper food intake then it will weak the immunity system, so take food properly and be healthy. Now my parents are happy as I recovered. Hence I can say “A healthy child makes a happy home”.
