Blood pressure is the amount of force (pressure) that blood exerts on the walls of the vessels as it passes through them.

Why Is It Important?
As blood is pumped from the heart into the blood vessels, enough pressure is created to send it to all other parts of the body. As blood vessels travel away from the heart, they branch off and gradually get smaller, just like the branches of a tree. One branch may go to the brain, while another may go to your kidneys. Blood pressure keeps the blood flowing through all these branches so the body's cells get the oxygen and nutrients they need.
There are two types of Blood Pressure:- High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) & Low Blood Pressure (Hypotension)

“Hussein bhai was a dedicated and kind hearted social worker who always had the Community’s welfare at heart.  He served in the various positions in the Community with zeal and devotion and his death has left a big vacuum which will be difficult to fill.
On behalf of my colleagues and myself, I am writing this letter to express our deep sympathies to you, and all the members of the family on this bereavement, which has fallen upon you”.
