Beginners All Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code (BASIC) was developed by John G Kemeny and Thomas E Kurtz at Dartmouth College in U.S.A. in 1964. It is one of the simplest and easy to use computer languages. Basic is a High Level Programming Language, also termed as the Interpreter which reads one statement of a program at a time and executes appropriate instructions leading to some computations.
BASIC continues to be widely used because it can be learned quickly, its statements are easy to read by other programmers, and support is available on most operating systems. BASIC's documentation has been translated into many national languages.
BASIC is used in many business applications and is still considered a valid choice as a programming language for some purposes. Microsoft's Visual Basic adds object-oriented features and a graphical user interface to the standard BASIC.

About the Author
Major part of my career has been in the field of Education and Administration. I have a good command over my subject (computer science) and effective communication in English. I have written books in my subject and have represented Science Olympiad Foundation. I have been very adaptable to any kind of new environment and technologies. I have written a few computer science books for my students based on their syllabus. With lots of health issues cropping up with time, I recreated myself with the help of Yoga and Meditation. Which gave me a direction towards a happy mind and body. Thus decided to share my experience in penning down the Good Health Technique with all. I am ever grateful to Guruji, Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji and to Swami Satyananda Saraswatiji for guidance towards ultimate physical and mental good health.
