Are you liking our conversations with Jaipur based diabetic women under our campaign ‘Stand as a Sugar Pot’. The initiative, in association with Baidyanath Sugarfree Chyawanprash – Chyawan Vit, is to spread awareness and take inspiration from these women’s lives on controlling diabetes on a daily basis.
For us, to stand like a sugar-pot means to stand victorious over diabetes with a posture of both hands on waist. After meeting Mrs. Rekha and Mrs. Anuja, it is time we meet Mrs. Sarita Agarwal to learn how she is winning over this medical condition.
JWB – Hello, Sarita. Tell us about your diabetes.
Sarita – I have type-2 diabetes and was diagnosed 8 yrs back. Since, my parents were diabetic, I was always regular with check-ups to see if I had developed the symptoms. Somehow, I was mentally prepared.
JWB – Being a single parent and living alone at home while the two kids are at work, how do you manage to deal with diabetic issues?
Sarita – I know I am responsible for my own health. There are times I feel like eating things that are not good for my blood sugar, but then I control.
Sarita – And then I keep a strict check in the coming days to balance the sugar level.
JWB – And how do you manage kitchen, considering everyone’s choices that you cannot eat?
Sarita – We are 3 in family so generally I cook 3 types of veggies for all of us. That’s not tough for me.
As you know, we have asked each diabetic woman’s family to show their support by painting the white sugar-pot. We were eager to know about this one.
Sarita – My daughter Garima has drawn this park view. She is the one motivating me to go for walks and do yoga.
JWB – Beautiful. Is she a painter?
Sarita – It’s her hobby. Like she pursues me to do exercise, I have been asking her to follow her passion of art.
JWB – Actually walks are the simplest and most effective way to stay fit. Morning walks are so healthy with fresh air around.
Sarita – It’s good for human being to stay close to nature. Whether it is food or exercise, the more natural it is, the better. I am glad the name like Baidyanath Chyawanprash is holding campaigns like this one.
JWB – Right. So now we have a fun question for you. Imagine if your diabetes just disappears tomorrow, how will your life change?
This is how Sarita Agarwal stands as a sugar pot – brave and determined – to defeat diabetes every day. Mrs. Sarita’s idea to balance blood sugar after a little sweet-treat for self is smart. Are you good at balancing? Tell us!
