  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Three wise monkeys who teach to 'speak no evil, hear no evil, see no evil' signify refraining totally from evil, yet they also represent 'good people' who do nothing about evil, feign ignorance, and turn a blind eye to misappropriate behaviors. It's possible that evil won't prevail in the society, if good people stop to stand by, and take positive steps to stand up and be counted.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Interestingly, Paleo Diet is getting extremely popular nowadays. It's also known as: Caveman Diet, Stone Age Diet and Hunter-Gatherer Diet. It's basically the diet that includes raw wild plants and animals eaten by human beings during the Paleolithic era (that ended 10,000 years ago.) It's an interesting dichotomy, imho, in light of the fact that most cavemen actually died as early as the age of 25. During that era, very few could make it anywhere close to the modern day life expectancy of 85 to 95 in many countries. There is absolutely no good alternative to balanced good diet, be it Paleo or otherwise, and most importantly, refraining from smoking and drinking excessively. Have a wonderful healthy life!
