Sangita, once, whose highest weight recorded was 88 kg lost 33 kg because of the strong determination of loosing weight. She was suffering from so many problems (mentioned above). One day she went to the doctor and asked a doctor about her problem and the possible way out. Instead of giving her hope, he sympathized with her and asked her to live with it. That’s the turning point where she decided to fight against her health issues. Then she studied nutrition, got in-depth knowledge of the subject and ultimately, cured all her ailments.In an interview with TOI, she shared all her secrets from her diet to her motivation for loosing weight.

Her breakfast: Roti with egg white/ idli sambar/ poha/ cheese toast/ peanut butter toast

Her lunch: Salad + roti, sabji & dal/ brown rice with fish curry/chicken curry

Her dinner: Salad + roti, dal & sabji/ brown rice, dal with veggies/besan chilla/ quinoa pulao with curd

She keep on snacking every 2 hours with buttermilk/ coconut water/ fistful of dry fruits/ bhuna chana/ fruit.

She also said that,” I indulge in everything I like once in a month, but I make sure to zip my lip by 6:30 pm that day. I don’t drink or smoke, so any such indulgence is ruled out.”

When asked about her workour routine she replied that, “Initially I started with one hour of walking. After reducing 10 kgs, I started one hour of exercise (mix of cardio and strength training) six days a week. If I skip gym for any reason, I compensate it with walking.”

She also added that, “One shouldn’t starve or skip meals to lose weight. You have to eat everything in moderation to lose weight and stay healthy. Eat something every two hours to increase BMR and this helps you to reduce weight as well. Your body is primarily made in your kitchen and not in the gym.”

Her motivation for loosing weight is very great, she get motivated by shopping, she told TOI that,  “I shop often to keep myself motivated. I buy clothes one size less than usual and try to make myself fit into it at the earliest. A healthy body is a necessity just like food, air or water.” and she also added that, ” I believe that you earn your body. I don’t want to go back to my earlier self. I keep reminding myself this to stay focused.”

When asked, what lifestyle changes she made in the process of loosing weight, she said that,” I eat my breakfast within one hour of getting up. Also, I eat every two hours. I always go for healthy options in every meal. I include salad, fruit and nuts in my diet. Exercising six days a week for an hour is a must for me. I drink plenty of water. Last, but not the least, I eat an early and light dinner.”

While sharing her bad experience about his weight she said that, “When I was suffering from morbid obesity with lots of health issues and was clueless about how to recover, I gave up my professional career and interests. I had a miscarriage and underwent acute depression and found myself utterly useless in society and relationships.” and that is why she believes that, that you earn your body. Living with health issues not only gives you physical but mental stress as well.

10 years from now she want to be an internationally recognised nutritionist engaged in public awareness and help people achieve a healthy body.

They entered through the entry they made and stole valuables and money from 30 lockers. The exact amount of money that had been stolen is not confirmed yet but it can easily run into crores.

The branch is located on NH-58 and is adjacent to an L shaped plot on which sits an abandoned rubber factory. On this plot, an empty office is right behind where the bank’s strongroom is, sharing a common wall.

The burglars entered this office, and cut the hole in the common wall, which is about nine inches thick, at a height just above where the lockers end.

The loss was discovered when a bank staffer, Anil Bhargav, and the head cashier, Ajay Kumar, opened the strongroom on Monday around 9:45am.

Ajay Kumar, opened the strongroom which has two security doors.The steel door of the strongroom can be opened with a set of two keys, kept in the custody of these officials, only when they are inserted together into the keyholes.

After opening the steel door, the officials were about to open the next door which is an iron grille like those found in prisons. However, they noticed through the grille that things had been scattered inside the strongroom. They also noticed that several lockers seemed to have been broken. They immediately called up the police control room, They then informed the police about the robbery.

Bank officials said there has been no security guard at the bank. “The strongroom had been closed on Friday around 6pm. The bank was closed for two days after that. A security alarm is also installed inside the strongroom apart from a CCTV camera. Even if the alarm went off, there was no one to hear it since the bank was closed. There was no security guard at the branch. The branch depended on police patrol vehicles for security,” said S.K Pancholi, assistant general manager.

There are total 435 lockers in the bank out of which 96 are not in use at present, burglars managed to open only 30 lockers, but it is evident that they tried to open other lockers too. The burglars also stole a double-barrelled gun kept inside a steel cabinet inside the strongroom though the iron chest containing the bank’s cash reserves had been left untouched.

Senior officials of Ghaziabad police reached the bank after receiving the call, along with a forensic team and a dog squad. Fingerprints have been lifted from the scene.The bank operates out of a rented building which once belonged to the now-abandoned Modi Rubber Factory .According to officials, the building has now been sold to Haryana Distelleries which has continued with the rent agreement.

On the other side of the bank is a building which houses the office of Modi Spinning & Weaving Mills Employees’ Union. Cops used the ladder of a fire engine to enter the compound of the abandoned factory whose walls are at least 30-feet high.

According to cops, the room from which the burglars had drilled the hole contained a small steel almirah, a table and a typewriter which are also in derelict condition. Police said the burglars had broken the cement-concrete of the nine-inch-thick wall with the help of hammers and pickaxes while its steel frame was cut open with the help of blade saws. The equipment has been recovered by police from the spot.

Scores of anxious customers thronged the bank throughout Monday. Valuables worth crores are allegedly missing from the lockers.Many complained that their entire savings have vanished.
