The Four Humors ......

This Professor told us some rather interesting stuff ..... 'bout the four humors ... it seems our body consists of four elemental fluids. They are:
Yellow Bile (Fire)
Black Bile (Earth)
Phlegm (Water)
Blood (Air)

Each of the humors was associated with one of the four universal elements (Fire, Earth, Water & Air). An imbalance in the distribution of these fluids was thought to affect each individual's personality


Too much blood, made one SANGUINE; these people are generally amorous , sturdy, confident, cheerful, sociable, carefree, lively.

Too much black bile, MELANCHOLIC; and these people are usually moody, anxious, sentimental, introspective, reserved

Too much yellow bile, CHOLERIC; and these folks are easily angered, agressive, short-tempered, ambitious, restless, impulsive

& too much phlegm, PHLEGMATIC; they are calm, unemotional, cool, impassive, careful, reliable, even-tempered

I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
