First ‘Burari’, now ‘Sushant’ – Who will be killed next by ‘Black magic’?

Who Will be Killed by Black Magic

Death! Period!

When the oblivion embraces you and you cease to exist.

Yes, death came slowly and torturously for the Chundawat family. All 11 members of the family died mysteriously on July 1, 2018. No one could escape.

Head constable Rajeev Tomar was the first policeman to enter the house to see ten bodies hanging like the root branches of a banyan tree. 

Ever since then, the ‘House of Mass Suicide’ in Delhi along with the whole nation has been demanding justice. No one could give it.

Not even the Supreme Court of India. Police called it suicide. Kin claimed murder!

The case was shut by the police stating the scene was a result of ‘shared psychotic disorder’.

Imagine that horrific scene, and if you aren’t able to, see this image of the unlucky family.

Do all these 11 people look psychotics to you?

Many questions like the above were left unanswered!

But there are two burning questions that precede all.

  1. Where the hell is justice for these 11 ghosts from ‘Burari Kand’? Because the occult murderer is still roaming free.
  2. Is that ‘Kala Jadu’ practitioner coming to kill YOU next? If yes, who is going to save YOU and your family?

Why am I talking about ‘Burari Kand’ all of a sudden? Because even in actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s unsolved death case, his sister – Meetu accused  Rhea Chakraborty of using black magic to kill him. To the utter dismay of logical minds left alive in India, Aaj Tak one of the leading news channels of India created prime time news to showcase Rhea as a black magic practitioner.

For once, the media has taken the issue hands-on, just like they barged in at the time of Burari case. But all are just going to scratch the pole, none going to dig.

But I’ll bring the real story ahead. Because as I said, you never know if you are the next victim of this ‘Kala Jadu’.

You and your family are living a happy life until the door gets knocked one day by a mysterious figure. That day onwards your life changes. Not just your life, there are chances that even your death changes.

The Burari case was neither the beginning, definitely nor the end!

But surely, Black Magic & Occultism have claimed more lives than COVID-19 has.

Make Hay While the Sun Shines

Not in India alone, this disease has spread in all corners of the world where civilization and religion reside.

Be it in name of ‘The Church’ since the first crusade, killing spree of millions of women guided by the book of Soloman, murders in name of conversion of Hindus and Sikhs into Islam or Christianity, mass suicide orchestrated in Jonestown – Guyana by Jim Jones, Cults and Occults for ‘Badh Tapasya’, ‘Bali Puja’ or Tantriks.

Damn! The list is crazy long!

Again, why creepy talks of all these scary as f*ck things?

If you are wondering, that I am being superstitious and talking about these.. HELL, NO!

I am a Theist but devoted to science as the first GOD!

I’m not being superstitious that the ‘Magic’ thing will actually work. It’s the brainwashed ‘Andh-Bhakti’ that kills people. Surprisingly, it doesn’t even ask for your religion, caste, or creed. It just kills!

Aghoris, Alams, Tantriks, Fakirs, Babas… and more! From ‘Necromancy’ to ‘Nazarbattu’, there is no one amongst us who hasn’t come across such ‘Supernatural Abilities Infused Super Humans’.

Just like I said, no one will dig. So, YOU and I have to do it. Because we and our families are still alive.

Crossing the Line

There is a very thin line between Spirituality and Superstition. Crossing this ‘Laxman Rekha’ will put you in the danger zone, where the vultures of ‘Kala jadu’ are hungrily awaiting to eat your body, heart, and soul (figurative yet audaciously true in its sense).

For a fact, many of us are aware of Kamakhya Mata Temple & Mehnadipur Balaji temple, both famous as the saviors for ‘Kala Jadu’ and ‘Pret Badha’ victims. But let’s talk of possible origin of this ‘black magic’ that will surely draw more attention – Mayong – a village in North-East India, where witches and wizards of black magic originated and their victorious stories of killing an army of 100,000 horsemen of Muhammad Shah became quite popular.

Superstition Unabashedly is the Religion of the Weak Minds!

Now read between the lines, these are the stories that date back centuries and years, but with little proof of real happenings. We all have millions of such lore and cases every mile of this Indian sub-continent. Religions were made to keep men in check and follow the societal guidelines. But with that spirituality, superstitions also grew, the latter being stronger. It is the superstitions, which have led to the rise of ‘Occultism’ and ‘Black Magic’. In all the cases I have referred to, more than magic it was brainwashing aka ‘andh-vishwas’ that led to deaths.

What varies is just the number of people dying. Sometimes just one ‘Sushant’ or 11 ‘Chundawats’. When the government and the opposition both are talking big on making India ‘The World Leader’, it’s time to look back at the roots and uproot the weeds.

Just to conclude, I remember Dr. Mohan Kashyap whose family has moved into the Burari house and have been living there without any problem; no spooky feelings at all. At least they are out of the grip of occultism, unlike YOU and ME.

If you are wondering where the 11 ghosts of Chundawat family are, let me tell you – they have gone to join the occultism that made them die.

They will be silently watching you, as one such ‘Occult’ or ‘Kala Jadu’ will be slowly creeping towards you and slyly getting a grip.

Ssssshhh! Koi hai!

Be careful, for you don’t know if Sushant, 909 Jonestown victims, or the 100,000 horsemen of Muhammad Shah are also watching you with others!

Ways to boost Mental Soundness

It was a regular spring noon; Julie in her 30s, was doing the laundry in the backyard as no domestic help was available due to fear of COVID-19.

Suddenly she started feeling numbness in her hands. Her body felt hot. She was gasping for breath & blacked out for almost 5 minutes. Joe, her husband, immediately called up the family doctor.

After talking for a while, the doctor made a shocking revelation– “Julie is a chronic case of depression.” Joe’s heart skipped a beat. How was this even possible? After all, they were living a healthy lifestyle by exercising daily and keeping themselves busy.

She did get some short panic attacks last month but then who cares to take anxiety seriously until it knocks you down unexpectedly.

The doctor prescribed some anti-depressants. He tried to analyse the cause of anxiety. Julie was spending most of her day consuming updates on the pandemic on television and social media.

Without even realizing, the uncertainty and stress of the Coronavirus  started taking a serious mental toll on her. She was a social butterfly! The isolation forced by quarantine and the feeling of being cut off from parents, friends, relatives began to have an unpleasant effect on her mental health. Making arrangements for grocery and medicines during the lockdown became a challenge. Deep inside, she was constantly fearing what will happen if her own family became a victim of Coronavirus.

Can you relate to Julie’s story? Almost every family has been through this during COVID pandemic.

So how do you even know that your mental health isn’t in a good state?

Someone can be perfectly healthy and yet feel as though there is something wrong with them.

Mental health awareness is important, even more, in today’s depressing times. If you are experiencing these symptoms, be wary my friend, could be a red flag!

1. An awkward fear

2. Numbness in body

3. Low mood

4. Irritability

5. Emotional exhaustion

6. Mood swings

7. Unreasonable anger

Julie focused more on exercising. There were a few routine workouts that she did. But she used to binge eat & that was a problem.

Ultimately you are what you eat and laughter is brightest where food is best. For sure she learnt that she needs to change what food she is gorging on mindlessly with special focus on mental health.

So here we are sharing some quintessential ways to boost your mental soundness. But, first things first.

What you should avoid at all costs?

1. Processed food – Start eliminating anything that is white or processed or carbonated in your meals. White sauce, pasta, fast food, gluten food, cold drinks – Strike these off your menu.

2. Sugar – Processed sugar is sweet poison. If you consume it moderately and don’t have any blood sugar problems, you are blessed. But if you over-consume or have a history of increased blood sugar levels, it will further trigger an imbalance in brain chemicals and increase the risk of developing a long term mental disorder. You may have abrupt mood swings. Trust me, it will completely zap your brainpower!

Anxiety loves sugar. To satisfy your sweet tooth, replace sugar with sweet potatoes, jaggery, honey, dates, coconut sugar, juices sans extra sugar.

What you should have at all costs?

 Foods: Some super-foods deliver serious nutritional value for mental health and should have a permanent place in your kitchen or refrigerator:

1. Berries – Are full of antioxidants. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries boost your mental health in magical ways. Antioxidants repair cells that get damaged by pollutants. Berries also improve concentration.

2. Walnuts – Walnuts look like a brain & that’s nature’s way of telling us they are good for mental health. They are full of antioxidants and help in the growth of brain cells. Include them in your diet, daily.

3. Whole Grains – Oats, Quinoa and Barley are some of the whole grains rich in vitamin B that reduce inflammation of the brain. They also promote flow of blood to the brain. Your brain is happy when blood can flow to it easily! 🙂

4. Beans – Beans stabilize blood sugar levels & also provide energy to the brain. Add some lentils and black beans to your meal. Beans are the secret to your brain’s energy!

5. Oily fish – Is also called the ‘brain food’. It has omega 3 fatty acid that contributes to optimal brain health and reduces anxiety. In case you ain’t fond of seafood, you can go for fish oil supplements.

Other powerful ways, that you just shouldn’t ignore, to fight depression

Food is just a part of your overall mental wellness plan. Shaking & moving your body a bit, ensures your muscles & nerves don’t shrink and your brain is conditioned well.

1. Make a daily exercise routine: Depending on your fitness levels, start exercising daily. Begin with short bursts of exercise like walking, skipping, stretching, yoga, burpees or something you can do while sitting on the sofa or chair or bed. It’s that simple!

For anxiety, HIIT or high-intensity interval training is the BEST! When you exercise, endorphins are released that boost your mood. Tweak your routine, the moment it gets monotonous. Take up some cool fitness challenges with your buddies if exercises bore you.

 2. Practise meditation – Whether it is allopathy, ayurveda or homoeopathy, each one of these swears by meditation to calm down a hyperactive mind. Those who meditate regularly have better chances of recovering from any disease. It helps to manage negative emotions & makes you feel relaxed. Mindful meditation is becoming very popular these days. Start your meditation routine with 5 minutes and gradually increase the time. Nothing can be as easy as breathing in and breathing out, trust us!

3. Give up on your drinking habits: People turn to alcohol to improve their mood and they get an instant ‘high’ after gulping a peg or two. In reality, alcohol intoxicates your mind. People soon get stuck in the cycle of addiction. Drink water instead! Squeeze half a lemon or add a spoonful of apple cider vinegar to it and just see the wonders it does to your body.

4. Watch comedy shows: A good laugh reduces stress hormones like cortisol and epinephrine, creating a relaxed environment for the mind. It also improves oxygen flow and releases tension in the muscles. FRIENDS, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Two and a half men, The Kapil Sharma show, there are plenty of them to cheer you up. Stand up comedy shows are instant mood lifters.. Once you start watching, I swear your brain will begin discoing & forget that it has 100 billion neurons to take care of.

5. Sleep: Last but not the least; don’t forget the power of sleep. It’s nature’s panacea and more powerful than any drug in the world.  At least 7 hours of sleep a day is necessary for your body to nourish. So keep calm and get your share of  beauty sleep, every single day!

sleep is good for mental health

Relax! Eat well, sleep well, exercise regularly and try to avoid seeking to much information on COVID-19 updates.

On a more serious note

If you are really losing your enthusiasm for life or getting thoughts of harming yourself or others, see a psychiatrist without delay. If any of your fellas are going through this phase, never leave them alone. Talk about their past accomplishments and share success stories with them. Make them wanted and let them know how their absence might affect their loved ones negatively. More than anything, teach them self-love. Nothing matters more than their own mental health.

Believe in yourself! Depression is not a stigma. Talk it out. It’s only when you don’t talk about it, stigma wins.

So, be a fitnessista. Take charge of your mental health, starting today!

An ‘Alexa’ for Doctors? Why Not? Said This Techie

He is the mastermind behind the clinical voice assistant tool. And he has a vision of having healthcare professionals with no burnouts.

Published

Suki, clinical voice assistant tool

Hey Google!

Hey Siri!

Hey Alexa!

Hey Suki!

We’re sure that most of you are aware of the first three voice assistants and are using those in your day-to-day life.

Now, you might be wondering what this fourth one is?!

Well, you will get to know about that in no time but before that; do you know, 

A recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine states that physicians spend 27% of their time consulting patients?

And do you know where do physicians spend 49.2% of their remaining time?

It is in doing paperwork! And it also includes the use of the EHR (Electric Health Record) system.

The primary reasons behind physicians’ burnout could be:

  • No help available for doctors and physicians to do paperwork
  • Clinics and hospitals are reluctant to invest in clerical and administrative support

Well, it is! It is totally related to our talks.

There is a technology that can assist the doctors in the monotonous documentation work; saves the precious time of the patients’ as well as their own.

And that technology is Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Leveraging this same technology, a US-based startup founded by Punit Soni has developed a clinical voice assistant named Suki.

It is aiming to help doctors and physicians with documentation work, and create more time for doctors to treat their patients, which is indeed their primary job.

A brilliant move of technology into the healthcare system, don’t you think?

The Beginning of Suki

Suki Co founder, Punit Soni

The co-founder of Suki, Punit, is a techie guy who has served as lead project manager for 8 years in Google, and chief product officer in Flipkart.

He was mainly into the development of mobile applications and games.

So, how did this nerdy techie get introduced into the healthcare system?

It was when he shadowed the doctors in a clinic.

When he was in the clinic, there was a stressful situation wherein many patients were getting treated, and many intense works were taking place.

In such a situation, the most distracted persons he could find were the doctors!

Why?

Because he found them immersed in the documentation work instead of treating the patients.

This was when he came up with the thought of creating a tool that can assist the healthcare professionals in doing the paperwork. And hence they could focus on their patients with more care and empathy.

And in 2016, Punit started his journey in the healthcare industry by launching Suki.

A Much-Needed Tool for Physicians

A Much-Needed Tool for Physicians

How does Suki work?

This clinical voice assistant records, transcribes, and organizes doctors’ conversations with their patients. And then, it completes the data entry that is required for EHR.

By taking care of this tedious documentation process, Suki has enhanced the relationship between a doctor and a patient.

As per a recent white paper published by Suki, this voice assistant has increased the time spent by the doctors with their patients by 12% by cutting down the note-taking time by 76%.

This is undoubtedly a win-win situation for both patients and doctors.

How?

When a happy and stress-free physician spends more time with the patients, treatment would be more effective. And that would cause faster recovery.

And for the doctors, the application of voice assistant brings a financial benefit of  $30,000 or more a year on average.

And hence, Suki, as a tool, has improved the healthcare system by  :

  • Structuring the format of the healthcare management
  • Happier physicians with no burnout
  • Increase in the profit of healthcare organization, and
  • A better outcome for patients

In one of his interviews, Punit expressed that the feedback from the CIO (Chief Information Officer), CMIO (Chief Medical Informatics Officer), and administrators were critical for Suki.

But what mattered to him the most was how Suki would help physicians work professionally and make their lives easier.

He is undoubtedly the rarest technology professional who realized that physician burnout is the most critical public health crisis that had to be addressed.

The Challenges He Had to Face

The Challenges faced by Suki founders

The journey of Suki was not a cakewalk.

Punit, and his technology team, had little to no idea about how a day would be like in a physician’s life, or they couldn’t spare time to observe and study their workflow.

So, to get access to the data that would help him develop Suki, he took physicians onboard as his colleagues.

Was it an effortless task for him to recruit and keep physicians in his team?

No, not at all.

It became difficult for Punit to create a workspace that could be ideal for both physicians and techies.

But he knew that to make Suki a success, both technologists and physicians had to work hand in hand. Therefore, even though it was challenging to understand each other’s work culture, ethics, and process, it was all worth it in the end.

The next challenge ahead of him was getting permission from physicians to introduce Suki in clinics and hospitals.

But most of the physicians did not agree to use the tool that was built only for them.

Why?

Before Suki, the technology field had developed many tools for physicians but not keeping them in mind.

These tools, instead of easing their work, added more burden on them. They used these tools only because the system forced them to do so.

When Punit approached them with Suki, most of the physicians were hesitant. But he assured them, saying that, if they used it, from day 1, their time spent on paperwork would reduce by 50 – 70%.

And guess what?

Physicians and the healthcare system agreed to welcome Suki.

And hence, it got its entry into the healthcare industry.

Even after Suki’s successful launch, Punit had to address questions regarding his intention behind this tool.

“Are you going to replace doctors with Suki?”, many curious people couldn’t resist but ask him.

He replied with an explanation that Suki has no intention of replacing doctors. But only to assist them so that they could do their job of treating their patients in the best way possible.

How could anyone think of replacing our super strong-minded professional folks, isn’t it?

What’s New in Suki?

Suki gets constant updates

“It was a tough job to make Suki a reliable, seamless, perfect and consistent tool for healthcare, where one can not entertain mistakes,” says Punit.

He has plans of scaling up Suki and making it even more reliable and efficient.

In this direction, Suki has come up with a newly updated platform that incorporates data collected by Suki and teaches the AI to respond to the users faster and accurately.

And that is S3 or the Suki Speech Service platform. With this new upgrade, doctors can communicate with Suki casually, without confusing it.

Punit has a vision of making Suki an invisible and assistive tool to the healthcare professionals, and hopes that many technologies would show up to upgrade the healthcare industry.

We, at TBM, wish the team of Suki all the best for future endeavours. And hope that Suki would bring a smile on each physicians’ face because they deserve it.

Here Is Why Entrepreneurs Should Go Out and Start Networking

Don’t hide behind. Face your circles. It’s high time you start networking.

Published

on

Networking of Entrepreneurs

We have often watched Hindi films where protagonists aspire to be a rich men as a kid. And hence they start thinking of different business ideas to be successful.

Well, this happens in reality as well. Who doesn’t dream of starting their own business one day, right?

However, business is not as easy as eating a piece of cake. And no, you don’t need to have a Ph.D. or an MBA degree to start a business.

You just need to have clarity of thoughts; about the business idea, sales and marketing, and most importantly, NETWORKING.

Today, everyone needs everything. The circle of needs and demands has become wider. Everything in entrepreneurship is becoming more interconnected. Just like the Past, Present, and Future in the web series “Dark”.

Networking is the one and only way to get to know what’s around you. From having conversations with your parents to your fruit vendors or even your house helps, you never know what brings you to the peak of your business.

We will share our two cents to convince you enough to go out and start networking if you are a budding entrepreneur. Pardon us if these two cents become 4 or more, but you will definitely not regret reading this till the end.

Entrepreneurship And Networking

The first thing that any budding entrepreneur does, while starting their own business, is to spread the word about it.

The first set of people that they talk to are their family, friends, and even banks (for financial purposes). Although these efforts may or may not materialize into something fruitful, you learn a thing or two about the ABCs of networking.

Entrepreneurship And Networking

Networking is one way to get clarity of thoughts about your business. It’s like building a blueprint of your business in mind. You not only know the industry better but also get to know the loopholes and healthy shortcuts that will save time and increase efficiency.

In the ABCs of business, “A” stands for “recognizing the needs and expectations of people around you.”

Networking is the first step to recognize the gap between demand and supply. It’s similar to providing electricity to those areas with no light, and the idea and motivation behind it.

So now that you are still reading, let’s go further and discuss the importance of networking in entrepreneurship:

Builds Trust And Respect

You may or may not earn money every day from your business. But once you earn trust and respect in the market, there is no way that people will forget you easily.

It’s a fact.

Earning money is easy.

But earning trust and respect takes more effort.

Networking with your business peers or veterans will get you noticed. Initially, you won’t find them paying heed to you, but once they do, they are never going to leave you.

Builds Trust And Respect

People believe in aggressive marketing to increase sales and business. But try aggressive networking instead, and there will be no stopping for you in the future.

Go Social

Remember, making friends in schools and colleges? It’s a similar situation in entrepreneurship, too.

Going social is one way you get confidence in networking with people in the future.

Go Social

Did you ever come across someone who would go to a restaurant with you and start talking to the waiters and receptionists?

Well, you may feel awkward about it, but that’s their first step to get to know the surrounding market.

Start from a party that you attend, be it a family party or a party with friends. Join a group of your choice and listen to the conversations. Once you get the grip of it, start by putting forth your views and then turn it around to your business idea. This may look boring and slow, but slow and steady will definitely win the race.

Today, there are many millennial-made apps, like Bumble, LinkedIn, etc. that encourage people to build an entrepreneurial network in any industry of their choice. Start posting. Start swiping right to the connections that interest you.

For that matter, you can even join dating apps to build professional connections. Your first conversation about your business will be a good ice-breaker (You’ll thank us later for this pro tip).

Don’t Be Selective In Your Own Circles

A very common mistake that most “choosy” or “picky” people do, is being very selective in deciding who to network with.

Today, almost all industries are interconnected. A top-class hospital will always need catering or food services for their staff and patients. A hotel will always want to have options for good clothes vendors for room and restaurant linen.

So if you limit yourself to one or two industries, and sideline others, chances are that you may lose a lot of opportunities.

Expand yourself. Even if you are not sure about it at first. Take that first call that says “our budget is low”, when you know that you have a different area of expertise to explore.

Your Shyness And Fear Will Only Put You Behind The Race

Entrepreneurship requires you to go “out-of-your-circles” more than going “out-of-the-box”.

You are likely to face uncomfortable situations all the time. You have to become an extrovert if you are a highly introverted person. You can’t hide from people who you dislike. You can’t say goodbye to those people whom you are done working with.

Your fear, your shyness will start putting you behind the race of a successful entrepreneur.

You have to be outspoken. Pave your way and lead it too. Take others along the way and build a huge business “family”.

Remember Abhishek Bachchan in the film “Guru”?

No, you need not be exactly like him, but you are expected to know why to be like him. And take your own decisions from the existing lessons.

It’s A Long Road That Will Definitely Lead You To Your Vision

Networking is a continuous process. You don’t stop after a certain level of achievement.

Starting a business is not enough, you have to keep it running. And for that purpose, you may need to explore your potential networks.

It’s A Long Road That Will Definitely Lead You To Your Vision

It’s often expected from budding entrepreneurs to network only with business-minded people to start and run a business successfully. What they don’t realize is that business is made by people, for people, and with people.

So start networking – whether virtually, or face-to-face. Get that business idea in place, get started with your plans, and you will surely reach a place where you can write “successful entrepreneur” in your social media bio.
