Thopukarnam ; yoga for the brain

Praying to lord Ganesha the God of intellect and wisdom, can actually cure Alzheimer's and make you brainier.

When praying to Ganesha, we were taught to pinch our earlobes with opposite hands and do sit ups. Recent research has shown that our age old Indian traditional ritual, actually stimulates the brain by activating pressure points.


This video has made me appreciate our Indian traditional ways which many scoff and consider superstitious, but made the few of us who did follow a bit better. My Dad who is 84 still does this every morning when he prays. Shankari just remembered her teacher make her do this for not paying attention in class, as a punishment.
