How to stop hiccups effectively

Many of us face the problem of hiccups from time to time. Sometimes it happens to me if the food is too dry and thus difficult to swallow. One old story about hiccups is that somebody is remembering you and hence the hiccups. Actually they happen when the diaphragm muscle suddenly and involuntarily contracts. But whatever the reason, hiccups could be annoying and even embarrassing if you have an official meeting or presentation. Once it happened to my uncle that he had the hiccups and it didn't stop for one whole day and he had to go to the doctor!

Sadhguru's teachings

First, I would like to start by saying that this is the 100th post that I am writing!

I have read so much that Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has said and seen so many of his videos (He along with Osho are the 2 people I have read, or seen their videos the most) so I consider these 2 to be my gurus in a way.
I have actually attended Sadhguru's Inner Engineering program and thus have been initiated by him and hence he really is my guru. I have also attended 2 of his talks.

Recently I thought of summing up what he has said in points. And incidentally today is Guru Purnima so that makes it even better.

So following are some of the things that he has said, many of which I really like and find it relevant. These may not be exact quotes, but it is in my words the summary of what I have heard and read him. I will keep on adding more.

Website for making portraits

In the past, I have spent a lot of time looking for different, interesting websites and softwares which I could use for various purposes. From time to time, I get different ideas in my mind like drawing portraits or making a blueprint of a home etc. So I recently tried to search for all those websites and in the process found a new one-

It is an interesting website where you can easily make different faces. Although I am not too happy with the options available in terms of the nose especially, there are very limited options. Nonetheless, it is very easy to make a portrait here. Here is one I made recently:

You can visit it and give it a try :)

India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup Final


Background- This was the first time that a World Cup was being held in Cricket for a format other than ODIs. It was for the latest format- the T20s and it was held in South Africa. India had just finished an ODI series in England and they did not even have warm up matches for T20s. India was without the three greats- Sachin, Sourav and Rahul for the T20s but was led by the young, long-haired man – Dhoni.

There was a lot of excitement about the new format which took almost the same time as a movie. There was also interest about rules like Powerplay and field restrictions for T20, free-hit and bowl-out. In fact India and Pakistan had met before the finals in a game which ended with a spectacular bowl-out with India winning it.

Finished Candy Crush Saga

Around 8 months ago I saw a few of my friends playing a game on their mobiles. It looked too simple and unimpressive as I was used to a lot of different kinds of games with amazing visuals etc. I did not even understand the game. Then once I asked my friend about the game, how to play it, what is the objective etc. After that I decided to try it. I downloaded it. It was Candy Crush Saga. After that things were not the same anymore.
