1). I want to know when does a girl feel more pleasure. Is it inserting a penis inside the vagina or putting a finger? 2). I have read that a girl likes oral sex and enjoys to put a penis into her mouth. Is it ok to do so? Does it cause some kind of infection to her or it is totally safe. 3). Not sure if a girl can use condoms to put it into vagina while having sex. Can a boy feel pleasure in uncovered penis and with covered vagina?

Rice flakes, a paddy product is also popularly known as poha. Break-fast is the right time to consume poha rice since it has about 76.9% of carbohydrates and 23.1% of fats.

4. Peanuts are usually added to poha preparation and are good source of antioxidants and protein.
5. It contains 20 mg of iron in every 100g raw rice flakes, squeezing a cut lemon on the poha helps in improving iron absorption.
A healthier version to the everyday poha is the red poha, which is made from red rice. The red colour is due to the presence of a pigment called anthocyanin, which is also a flavonoid. Moreover, unlike white rice, red rice doesn't undergo excessive processing, and as such the other bran layer remains intact, which is rich is fiber, vitamin b, and minerals like calcium, zinc, iron, manganese, magnesium etc.

Air is the Most Essential Thing
Air is a mechanical mixture of gases, and the most essential thing for an organism to survive. It normally contains Nitrogen (78%), Oxygen (21%), Carbon dioxide and other gases in proportion. In addition to these gases, air also contains water vapour, traces of ammonia and suspended matter such as dust, bacteria, spores, and vegetable debris, etc.
Apart from supplying the life-giving oxygen, air and atmospheric conditions serve several functions. The human body is cooled by the air contact; special senses of hearing and smell function through air-transmitted stimuli; disease agents are conveyed by air.
The term “air pollution” denotes the presence of substances (e.g. gases, mixtures of gases and particulate matter) in the ambient surroundings, generated by the activities that interfere with the human health, safety or comfort, and is injurious to organisms, and other environmental media. It also results in chemicals entering the food chain, drinking water and thereby, adding substantial disease burden and affecting the quality of life. The problem of air pollution was first recognized about 500 years ago when the burning of coal in cities was increasing, and since then it is increasing at an alarming rate all over the globe.
During foggy weather, when little wind is present the smoke generated from pollution is mixed with fog and form “SMOG”
The smog is making it difficult for people to see and breathe.
- Personal air exposure: refers to exposure to dust, fumes and gases to which an individual is exposed directly or indirectly, eg. Smoking.
- Occupational air exposure: exposure to harmful concentration of aerosols, vapors, and gases in working environment.
- Community air exposure: This is most serious, complex, consists of varieties of assortment of pollution sources, meteorological factors, and wide variety of adverse social, economic, and health effects.
Till date more than 100 substances have been identified which pollute the air. These vary from place to place depending upon the specific complex of contaminant source. Following are few examples of primary and secondary air pollutants:
- Carbon monoxide
- Sulphur dioxide
- Nitrogen oxides
- Particulate matter
- PAN (peroxy acetyl nitrate)
- Photochemical smog
- Aerosols and mists: Sulphuric acid (H2SO4), Nitric acid (HNO3)
Indoor Air Pollution
- Indoor air pollution is one of the four most critical global environmental problems.
- It exposes more people worldwide to important air pollutants than pollution in outdoor air.
- Rural people in developing countries may receive as much as two-thirds of the global exposure to particulates.
- Women and children suffer the greatest exposure.
Sources of Indoor Pollution
- Indoor air pollution contributes to acute respiratory infections in young children, chronic lung disease, and cancer in adults, and may induce adverse pregnancy outcomes.
- Non-smoking women exposed to indoor coal smoke have a risk of lung cancer similar to that of men who smoke lightly.
Effects on Health
Air pollution has short term and long term effects. The direct effects are reflected in airway system and then spread to multi-systems. It ranges from:
- Upper and lower respiratory tract infections (acute and chronic)
- Acute and recurrent bronchitis
- Acute respiratory distress
- Asthmatic attacks
- Aggravation of pre-existing respiratory and heart disease.
- Lung cancer
The short term and long term exposure is also linked with short life expectancy and reduced quality of life.
Effects of specific pollutants
The keywords of general management with respect to Air Pollution are:
- More you prevent yourself from harmful allergens, dust, smoke, pollution and smog, more it would be beneficial for your health.
- Try to avoid early morning exposure to smog, cold air when your city is too much polluted.

- Keep an eye on neighbourhood for any polluting activities such as open fires, release of chemicals from factories, old polluting vehicles etc.
- Try not to use own vehicles when you are travelling alone.
- Opt for Car-Pool in where ever possible.
Ask for your rights
- At working environments ask for masks, air purifiers, and less exposure to air/chemical pollution
- Take opinion of medical specialists if you feel unwell while working.
- Support govt. initiatives to keep your city clean and green
