"We need to have healthy food and avoid junk food. We should consume natural food items and cook vegetables, especially leafy vegetables. Only when women are trained to follow this will the whole family be healthy. Because of their sedentary lifestyle, most of the women prefer to skip breakfast which gives rise to health problems. Have healthy food and remember, do not go for a walk soon after dinner because it hampers digestion. Soon after the dinner sit for at least two hours. Lead a healthy life for a longer life span," Dr Aruna Mallya told the gathering.

    Slowly things are changing due to constructive criticism of netizens. Officials are slowly coming out of the A/c cabins. Now we have to take them to the field and especially the runway. Runway extension is the need of the hour. Celebrations are good, but we need to convert these celebrations into positive attitude & thinking. Aeroplane yatrika sangha needs to be formed. Happy women's day.
