Forum advice, news & etiquette / Dattaswami - banned from this site
« on: April 03, 2008, 05:32:41 PM »
Dattaswami has been banned from this site because he broke the rules and is clearly on a campaign of self-promotion - which goes against everything that this site is about.

I took the decision to remove everything posted by him and all replies, but only after reading some of the rubbish he posted.

This is irreversible.

I must apologise for not acting sooner.

Forum advice, news & etiquette / Tolerance
« on: July 02, 2007, 01:50:52 PM »
The purpose of this forum is to permit people to post their questions, answers and observations for other members to respond to.

Faith is an emotive issue and has many facets. No-one has any right to condemn other people just because they disagree with them.

You cannot report topics to the administrator just because you don't like them. If you are offended by something then you have the freedom to post your own message.

Everyone wants their voice to be heard, this is a fact of life, but tolerance is very important. However, generally offensive material, obvious lies and racial comments will be removed without hesitation.

In January and February of 2007 links to pornographic sites were placed on this forum. This is the kind of thing that should be reported immediately.

Arunachala / Health warning to travellers
« on: October 29, 2006, 04:08:24 PM »
Visitors to Tiruvannamalai and to India in general should be aware of the current epidemics and health dangers that are prevalent today.

There are a number of mosquito-borne diseases that are gaining ground over the efforts to contain them.

1/ Chikun Kunya/Gunya

This is a very debilitating disease now spreading throughout India. The symptoms are a very high fever of 105/106 farenheight, painful or itching body rash and severe pain in the joints.

This virus is self-limiting, lasting about 15 days, but the after-effects can last for months or years.

2/ Dengue fever

This is a far more serious illness, which if not treated properly, can lead to hemorrhagic fever and death. The symptoms are almost the same as for chikun kunya.

You can find details of this disease on the web.

3/ Malaria

This is becoming very widespread throughout Tamil Nadu. There are hundreds of new cases in Tiruvannamalai every year.

If caught quickly there are allopathic medicines which can destroy the parasite, but they are very toxic to the body. There are also herbal remedies which work perfectly and have no side-effects.
