Smile Umbilical chord and ancient indian culture

Maybe some of us might be aware on the importance of umbilical chord and cord blood. They are life savers as they contain stem cells which can be used to treat hematopoietic and genetic disorders.

Let me tie this to an important activity that happens in southern part of india (maybe its prevalent too in entire india - not sure though).

Whenever a baby is born, the umbilical chord is cut and a clip is put up in the baby's navel end with the umbilical chord part extending out. In a matter of few days the external portion will heal and fall off.

This is then taken to a goldsmith who in turn stuffs this into a small golden (or silver depending upon one's capacity) and seals them air tight (mind this air tight) using fire. this is then tied along with a thread and is generally worn around the hips of babies.

Maybe our ancestors knew that this part of tissue might help in healing some disorders for the babies. Who knows better than them. Many of us indians would have worn this without much aware of its importance.

Hope that I have submitted a informative post here.

When posts related to 'which airlines is good to fly' can be posted and reviewed under this section, why cannot this be posted too.

But if admin feels that its an irrelevant post, then please go ahead and remove it.

Hey Krish2005, I see that you have a long wait before getting green card. I am not sure whether killing time by posting these would help you...

Anyway, to answer your thoughts, it might be informative on a more relevant science based forum than an immigration forum.

Trying to see how it is relevant here?...

Dr. Balkrishna Matapurkar, a surgeon at New Delhi's Maulana Azad Medical College, has pioneered a stem cell based technique for the regeneration of tissues and organs. He already holds a patent for this innovative technique. Incidentally, he is of view that embryonic stem cell research is one of the lost sciences of ancient India.

But please note that I am not trying to propagate that indian culture is best or better etc. I just wanted to share that stem cell related view of mine.

A couple of the fellow members might be cursing me to have posted this in. I know its nowhere related to immigration, but just a thought share.

That would be the view of Dr BalKrishna Matapurkar.

There is no accepted literary evidence to support his views. If so, please point me to that

Right. Its his view of stem cells research in ancient india. Some article I read in net which excerpted from mahabharatha.

"It appears that the ancient Indians also had the ability to clone humans(it's very ironic that contemporary India is taking the lead in stem-cell research) In the Mahabharata, the queen Ghandari, who had pregnancy problems and after 2 years bore a pinda(ball of flesh) which was then handed over to a sage. He divided this ball of flesh into 100 parts and treated them with a chemical process, then put each part into a sealed cooling container for 2 years, from which 100 male babies were created."

Maybe some support..

So learn a lesson, and when you get your GC, cut a small piece and wear it around your hips too.

"Science is a double edged". I would support stem cell research if there are ways control it and not to jeopardize nature's protocols.

lol. I could imagine the comical kaurava clowns running around when you put that post.
