Wealth management: Eight types of Wealth (Part 1)
 Dr KK Aggarwal
Generally speaking, wealth means all assets owned by an individual. Money is commonly used to define or measure wealth, but all wealth is not money. Besides money, knowledge, good health, strength, children, strength among others are also our wealth.
 
Our wealth or assets can be described by "Ashta Lakshmi", the eight forms of Goddess Lakshmi, which denote different aspects of wealth.
 
  1. Dhana Lakshmi: represents wealth in the form of money or riches.
  2.  Dhanya Lakshmi: 'Dhanya' literally means food grains. This form of Lakshmi represents agricultural income.
  3.  Gaja Lakshmi: Represents strength and depicts your 'sena' or your team, which helps you to achieve your goals and objectives. They can also be called as ‘gana’, which literally means "flock, troop, multitude, number, tribe, series or class" (Wikipedia).
  4.  Santana Lakshmi: Children too are our wealth; they bring us joy and happiness as part of family and represent our future.

Childhood obesity a major public health crisis today
On World Obesity Day, awareness needs to be created on the fact that small steps at home and school can prevent obesity in children
 
New Delhi, 25 October 2017: Statistics indicate that India has the second highest number of obese children in the world after China. About 14.4 million children in the country are overweight as per findings. Obesity is the leading cause of many health problems and globally, about 2 billion children and adults suffer from such issues. The rate of increase in obesity among children today is alarmingly high when compared to adults, indicates the IMA.
 
Childhood obesity can be identified by measuring the Body Mass Index or BMI. Children with a BMI in the range of 85% to 95% are classified as being obese. Overweight and obese children are likely to stay so way into their adulthood. They also stand the chance of developing noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases at a relatively younger age.
