Cashews! Are you nuts? No, but to keep your nuts and bolts in the right places you should consider eating kaju. But how much? You know, eating kajus will even teach you to stay in touch with your appetite, so let’s just let kaju do all the talking now.
Hey! Thank you for having me in your warm, tropical environment, feels like home. Have almost forgotten that I came here with the Portuguese, I actually feel like native Goan or Konkani now, if you please.
Let me tell you something since you mostly read this for health benefits (weight loss, wink wink). Some of you have been avoiding me in your quest to lose weight. You also believe that eating ‘good quality’ protein is central to weight loss. Now listen, I am a rich source of tryptophan, the same essential amino acid that helps you boost your metabolism and fat-burning. Neurologists also use it to reduce anxiety and depression in patients because of its ability to convert to Niacin (Vit B). Actually, I have all the qualifications of a ‘mood-enhancer’, I mean just look at people who reside with me along the costal belt!
And yes, all you heart disease ‘preventers’ who consume virgin olive oil for ‘good fats’, I am full of Oelic acid, mono unsaturated fat (mufa), which helps you lower triglyceride and bad cholesterol. Now, don’t I qualify as a heart protector?
I am told no one’s gonna eat me just because I am yummy to taste, crunchy and flavourful, but I do stand a chance if I ‘exploit’ my health benefits. So I am hoping I have sold myself to you well. See you in the gut!
My love for Kaju, and hate for Katju made me click the mouse on the featured article, hoping to crack few laughter after Katju baiting, only to be dissapointed, for the author killed the satire by only speaking about nutritious value of good ol Kaju. May be next time, she sud write a slapstick story on Katju in the gossip column, and blame it on Kaju.
Rujuta, every week, without fail, you exhort us to eat another food item. I have two questions for you:
1) How is the average Indian supposed to afford all these items?
2) How much exercise would be required to burn off the calories acquired from eating all of these items?
In case you hadn't noticed most Indians are fat and unfit. May I suggest that instead of suggesting a new item to include in their diets, you came up with suggestions for ew exercises which coul, preferebaly, be done without any equipment and at home?
Ratnakar ..... how about Yoga!!!
I knew a small person in school, who was as impressive as Mr. Katju. If he is the proverbial worried Adam in Paradise, (Kashmir), it's no wonder that Kashmir is a paradise. According to me, the Kashmiri is using religious sentiment not in a well manner. I don't think people outside the state, are in any way seeing Kashmir as even a modern tourist destination. Who is the Kashmiri blaming? It seems, the Kashmiri is saying, that people are saying Kashmiri's are Indian and Pakistani's. I can make out a Kashmiri from a distance. If I might make an observation, it appears that the Muslim Kashmiri in India, is blaming the Hindu because they see people outside India, identifying being Muslim as the reason they are not united. I think, this is very bad, and I see a situation, where in the future, neither India nor Pakistan will fight over the region, and no non-civilian security not wanted will be relevant there. And, if any man from any ethnicty rapes women from other religions, then he hasn't recognized his mother. Any Muslim Kashmiri would feel violated if his Muslim neighbour raped any woman in the vicinity.
I actually saw the name, 'Katju' instead of kaju. Perhaps, just as the walnut was conceived as a nut, some enterprising Kashmiri saw the cashew and had an inventory idea. On a very light vein, Mr. Katju should go to Kashmir and wear the ethnic dress in his house. But if people see him frequently near the Dal Lake, then if they don't see him at all, they won't be visiting the lake at all. He should wear dhoti in New Delhi, since he is a govt. official.

The best way present generation Urban , desk job working Indians can get fit and trim is not joining those costly gyms but walking a lot . In present urban India, the people have completely forgotten walking and this is also because our roads are absolutely unsafe to even stand and pedestrian footpaths have been forgotten even after so many flyovers and likes are built. But who is going to talk all this.. OUTLOOK? Forget, the media doesnt want all that
