Dear Students: This site is developed for your help and guidance. We will appreciate your comments & feed back. Soon we will add other subjects to this site. Thanks

Doctor's Advice

There were lots of shops of eatables and toys at the city fair. Hina was tempted to eat 'fruit chaat' but her brother stopped her from eating and said, "Look! There is a lot of dust around. It is unclean. Don't eat it." Then they went up to the stall where people were having 'gol gappas'. Hina felt hungry and wanted to have them. She persuaded her brother to order two plates of 'gol gappas'. Her brother did not agree and said, "All the eatables here are not covered. There are flies sitting upon them." But Hina didn’t listen to her brother. She asked for a plate of 'gol gappa' with sour syrup of vinegar and tamarind. She ate them and said, "These are very spicy and tasty." She asked her brother to taste them but he refused. The stalls of sweet meat were a colourful show of temptation, urging the visitors to relish them. After visiting the fair they came back home. They were tired so they went to bed soon.
The next morning Hina could not get up for school. Her mother noticed that she was running high temperature and had a sore throat. Her mother called the doctor. When the doctor came to examine Hina he told her to take necessary precautions. "The precautions were very simple and practical". The doctor gave her some hints on personal hygiene.
.
1. We must wash or hands and face with good soap.
2. We must take bath every day.
3. After means we must brush our teeth carefully.
4. Our clothes or uniform should be neat and clean.
5. We must keep handkerchief with us to cover or mouth at the time of coughing and sneezing.
6. We must brush our teeth before going to bed at night.
.
Uncovered things are exposed to flies, smoke and dust. This type of food carries bacteria and germs of various diseases. Therefore the kitchen must be kept neat and clean. There should be net windows and net doors, so that the flies may not enter the kitchen. The food items should be stored in safe and clean pots.
The garbage should be kept away and disposed of daily. If possible, filtered or boiled water should be used. Islam being the most scientific and natural religion also preaches cleanliness and maintenance of a healthy body. Our Holy Prophet (PBUH) also said, "Cleanliness is half the faith". So it is our religious obligation to keep the environment hygienic to save ourselves from all sorts of diseases and contamination.
