Facebook and other social media websites have taken an integral part in our lives. While using such websites are quite fun and most of us love to do it at a different level, we often experience few annoying problems with them. Surge of unwanted friend requests in Facebook is one such embarrassing and irritating experience, which we all want to avoid and get rid of.
If the friend requests are from some totally unknown person, then it is not that a big problem and we can always ignore and turn down them. But what if that person is not totally a stranger, but someone you know a little bit though cannot be regarded as friends. How to handle these requests in Facebook is a big question. Things get even worse if you meet these people at some common places every now and then, but does not know him well enough to accept a friend request on Facebook. That will be not a very sensible thing to do as well, whether that person seems nice or not.
It is never wise to accept friend requests from persons who are not very well known to you. You will find yourself in similar situations with these types of persons from distant past (like school friends) whom you have acquaintances, but never treated as friends.
Now what to do? After receiving such requests there are two main options available. One is to reject the request. Always do it politely. That will save you from unnecessary misunderstandings. Another option is to ignore the request so that it will remain in your timeline as pending. But, if you feel these two options will not do and you have to accept the request, you can keep that person in the restricted list after accepting the request.
What is the restricted list? The persons in your restricted list can only see your posts which you marked as public. In that way, though that person is on your friend list, he or she will not be able to see any of your posts meant for your friend list only. In other words, including them in your friend list does not make any difference. They are still like public viewers, i.e. persons outside your friend list.
Now, how to put someone on the restricted list? All you have to do is to go to that person’s profile and select the add to list option from the friends drop down menu and choose restricted. You are done. This person will now only see your public posts and not the posts meant for your friends. Hope this will be helpful and is an enjoyable read.

The wellness of your child is no doubt of paramount importance to every household. A healthy child brings happiness to the family. If we consider the global scenario and position of India in this respect, things are not very bright. The rate of death of children in the world has been reduced to half in recent years in comparison to past few decades. But this does not reflect the overall development in child health scenario in every nation. Particularly in several countries, like India the progress of child health is moving forward very slowly. This slow nature of development needs urgent attention and should be dealt with specific approaches. In 1998 the child mortality rate was highest in India with the death of nearly 2.5 million children of the age group below 5 years.
From the onset of birth most of Indian children have to face deprived childhoods. Many of them are underweight and suffer from nutritional, educational and immunization deficiencies. The scenario of India is worse than the average of all the developing countries.
Even after adaptation of various policies and methods, the overall scenario of malnutrition in children across the globe is quite disappointing with approximately 90% of children from developing countries in Africa and Asia are suffering from malnutrition. A nation’s growth and competence get compromised when the majority of its children is undernourished and unless severe it is often remaining unnoticed.
Every day, millions of children are unable to grow and develop till their full potential due to malnutrition and ill-health. As development of human civilization depends heavily on well nourished and healthy children, the current scenario is calling for programs in large scale to address this matter. It is vital for the progression and advancement of our country.
Though the Government is doing its bit in reviving this scenario (no doubt it is an intimidating task ahead) it is also our responsibility to ensure proper nutritional benefits to our children and satisfy their demands. We love our child more than our life and if our child is sick our world comes to an end. Nothing seems good at that moment. The nutritional deficiencies are the primary culprit behind our child sickness in most of the cases. Appropriate healthy diet is essential for proper nutrition and any deficiency in that respect weakens the immune system of your child. This gets your child vulnerable against numerous virus and bacteria lurking around everywhere in the environment.
Apart from appropriate nutrition through daily supple diet your child need supplements for additional boost especially during the growing period. In this scenario, the age-old formulation of Dabur Chyawanprash which is drawn from several herbs and more than 40 natural ingredients including Amla (notably the best antioxidant) and Giloy or Guduchi (having immuno-modulatory properties) will definitely come in handy. Dabur Chyawanprash is a time tested formulation which delivers the potential to increase your child’s immunity by 3 times* & thus gives your child three times more protection against sickness.
