    • Earlier he was unable to understand anything, he was averse to drinking water.  Forcefully we used to pour 1 -2 spoons in his mouth.  Within 6 – 7 months of Dr Rajul Vasa’s treatment he himself started asking for water on seeing someone drinking water.  Through gestures he started indicating he wants to have water.  Now he is able to easily drink about half a glass of water at one go and even have more quantity of food than before. 
    • In 2009, his diet consisted mainly of fruits and vegetables only as advised by Dr Rajul.  It was after this that we saw his body becoming tenable, more relaxed and soft.  His digestion system improved and his intelligence also showed remarkable improvement.
    • Rashid used to pass stools every 2-3 days and not everyday unlike other children. It used to be such a painful ritual for him that he had to gather all his strength to pass the stools.  Now he does it daily, mostly without any strain to pass stool.
    • He has become more active and tries to move forward by gliding on the floor.
