#5: Go for the Lumins
Lighting has traditionally been provided by incandescent light bulbs, and while CFLs and Leds have dominated the market offering more light while using less energy, people still think of lighting in traditional terms - by the watt.
A watt is a measurement of power, however, when we talk about a 60 Watt light bulb, we really mean Watts per hour - a unit of energy. A traditional 60W lightbulb emits about 800 lumens (a measurement of visible light). Want more light go for a bulb that has more Lumins.
Extra pro tip: if you want more light for you buck, look for a bulb with a high lumens to watts ratio. Also keep in mind that you want a long life.
Today Ayudh MA had it's first event. Three Ayudh MA members served food for Amma's birthday celebration at the Royal Plaza Hotel in Marlborough. Serving other before yourself when in front of delicious food is challenging, but our Ayudh group assembled and served with a smile!

One of the biggest events Asha holds is Holi. Here they fundraise for poor and underprivileged children in India by holding a massive Holi event where they sell food, water guns, and powder. During the festival many student groups perform dances or play various Indian instruments.
What a great way to showcase talent and celebrate spring while sharing with those who have nothing!
Cooking is a valuable skill and has many benefits but getting started in cooking can be intimidating. Lets do a hangout learning how to chop vegetables. We will cover which knife to buy and what knife skills to practice. We will look at chopping onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger - the key ingredients to many Indian recipes.
If you are look to get chopping here's a fun video to start with.
We will be making our own video showing how to chop for an Indian meal, and also show videos on how to season food along with quick healthy recipes to take with you where ever you go.
We will also study nutrition because without a strong body it is not possible to serve the world.
Amma says "If our youth arise and act, they have the strength and dynamism to create a huge transformation in society." One way to start some change is to find out everyone's talent. That way one person doesn't need to know how to do everything and many people can offer their talents to improve society. In order to showcase talent, the website now has a new talents page. If you are an Ayudh MA member you can edit the page to add your talents. Then other can reach out to you and together you can make a bigger splash.
