~ Indian Proverb

This page is dedicated to Sangeeta of Obesity Central. Her new website was created out of her passion for Ayurveda for good health and healthy living.

For those of you like me that have never heard of Ayurveda, join the crowd. I hadn’t either and of the dozen or so I asked they hadn’t either. Ayurveda is finally catching on, more so in other countries, but slowly here in the USA. It’s a very interesting science of healthy living and is one that has been refined over centuries of use in India.

Sangeeta has spent many long years studying about Ayurveda, then practicing the science herself and for many friends and clients she has helped over the years. Ayurveda followed a natural progression from her scholarly studies of the Vedas which was her first passion and continuing passion.

Visit her site to learn about Ayurveda and how it can help you personally improve your health. If you are interested in the origins of Ayurveda and much more science from ancient India visit her companion site at ?? to learn about the Vedas. If you’ve never heard about the Vedas you need to visit her site. If you already know about the Vedas her site will help explain it in easy to understand English although the original documents were written in Sanskrit.


Brahminy Kite

In flight near Chalakudy, India the rounded tail and plumage of adults is distinctive.

In India the Brahminy Kite is considered as the contemporary representation of Garuda, the sacred bird of Vishnu. The Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus), also known as the Red-backed Sea-eagle, is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as eagles, buzzards and harriers. They are found in the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Australia. Found mainly on the coast and in inland wetlands, they feed on dead fish and other prey. Adults have a reddish brown plumage and a contrasting white head and breast which makes them easy to distinguish from other birds of prey.

Brahminy kites are familiar sights in the skies of Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and southeast Asia and as far south as New South Wales, Australia, through which region it is widespread and resident. They perform seasonal movements associated with rainfall in some parts of their range.

Kites are mainly seen in the plains but can sometimes occur above 5000 feet in the Himalayas.

It is primarily a scavenger. These kites feed mainly on dead fish and crabs, especially in wetlands and marshland. However, they occasionally hunt live prey such as hares and bats. They may also indulge in kleptoparasitism and attempt to steal prey from other birds.

Brahminy Kites roost communally on large and isolated trees and as many as 600 have been seen at just one location. They may mob larger raptors such as the Aquila eagles.
