For example, for someone who has a fiery nature or pitta dosha, Dr. Patel would recommend coconut oil, which is cooling.
To this class, to the class that hide their light under a bushel, the beautiful Indian pitta (pitta brachyura) belongs.
Apart from the colouring, it is impossible to confound the pitta with any other bird.
This pitta was exceedingly tame, often moving along only 20 feet ahead of the observer.
The true ant-thrushes of the Old World belong to the genus pitta.
It is strange that so retiring a bird as the pitta should find its way with such frequency into inhabited houses.
There is at least one favoured compound in Madras where a pitta, or possibly a pair of them, spends the cool-weather season.
The pitta is quick on its feet, and is able to hop and run with equal ease.
It seems to me that the pitta dislikes cold and wind, and therefore naturally seeks any shelter that presents itself.
It is seen in many bulbuls, robins, and woodpeckers, and in the pitta.
