Thought for the day

Anna dasha guNa pishTham PishTha dasha guNa paya :

PayasoasTha guNam Mamsam Mamsam dasha guNam Ghrutam [Chanakya neeti]

The above given verse states the nutritional values of different kinds of foods we eat, and which is better off.

Flour is ten times better than rice- flour here usually referred to wheat; Wheat flour is ten times better than rice. Milk is ten times better than flour (?) Meat has eight times more nutritional values and calories than milk and Clarified butter/Ghee has ten times more calorific values than meat.

Maybe Chanakya also wanted to tell that the foods with lesser calories should be eaten more often; if you notice the quote you’ll find that foods with more calories are listed in a descending order

Flour (wheat)-Rice-Milk-Meat-Ghee

This the exceptional wisdom of Chankya the ancient economist of India.
