1. Is that the sound someone digging a borewell?

Let’s face it, most men snore. Apart from the nuisance value, snoring is related to obesity, which makes the muscles inside the throat lax, thus producing a vibration that comes out as a sound or grunt. In some cases it may be a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea or OSA. This condition blocks oxygen from going to the brain and could be a cause of a stroke which may be fatal. To reduce snoring, try sleeping on your side instead of your back. If the snoring persists, consult your physician.

Hi Kamal Pandya,

Dandruff could be due to the extreme weather conditions. Take 50 gm of Amla powder + 5 ml of fresh lemon juice + 1 egg white + 25 gm of fresh curd – Apply as pack followed by warm water wash after 15 – 30 minutes. This head pack is very effective in removing the dandruff and strengthens the hair roots and nourishes the hairs.
