Dropping Girls ratio: Khandesh's
girls naming convention marks the psychology behind:
The Press Institute of India Journal in its study has reported that alike Punjab - Haryana, the Khandesh tribe region has also taken girls with affronting names thereby vindicating their psychology on having daughters. The names like 'Nakochbai', 'Khati' are being used as compared to 'Dagdu', 'Dhondu', and 'Shenfadu' being kept for boys.
We had boys being considered as upcoming generation and family limes, and girls being just to nurture and marry them. The most worrying issue as an outcome of this psychology is our Male - Female ratio. The 1991 census has mere 867 girls behind 1,000, one of lowest throughout State. Our neighboring Dhule has 907 female while tribes majority Nandurbar has almost equal 996 female to 1,000 male ratios.
We have seen sharp decrease in females especially in Leva Gurjar community. Our district dominated by Leva Patidar, Gurjar communities has more or less same state of male female ratio. If the scenario continues in same fashion, we would be witnessing dangerous social imbalance that could led us to various consequences with increase in criminal offences.

Eye Vision: Care and Natural Solutions
(By R S Tomar, Jalgaon):
Eye vision is very important in the life of every body with out this we are nothing and totally dependent on others and life is miserable, not enjoyable and creative. To keep our vision strong and effective in the old and deteriorating age following simple points to keep in mind for the best results. As present life style is as, we are giving less attention to our personal life and health. Every body is sitting in front of PC or Laptop for at least 4-5 hours minimum.
1) After getting up in the morning and washing eyes and face with water if we focus on seeing the Holy basil (Tulsi) plant continuously for 5-10 minutes daily, our eyes are so fresh and vision is very clear and if we start continuing it in the early age than we do-not feel the necessity of using the spectacle or eye lenses in our latter life. Holy basil is the best but if we see Peeple or Neem in the same way it also helps even better than other green plants, trees or green grass etc.
2) Avoid watching TV after 11 pm in the night as the deterioration of eye vision quality is fast as compare to see in other day time.
3) Consume water frequently and sprinkle water on eyes it also helps to make your eyes fresh.
4) Eat raw green vegetable or cooked.
5) Avoid seeing Red colour continuously or flickering welds light or sparkling light for longer time.
