Does स्वस्थ have any relation to 'swastika'?

Yep. The swastika symbol was associated with good health in India. Good eye :)

Actually, not "was", it is. In many Asian countries, the swastika is still a symbol of divinity and spirituality. You might see them drawn with red kumkum on both sides of doorsteps to welcome in good luck in Hindu households and in Jain temples in India, Buddhist temples in Japan, etc.

In Trinidad and Tobago West Indies it is used on the bedi when certain pujas are performed

health > healthy. "healthic"? swasth > swasthik(a) ?

I wonder why we find both svast and svasth.

the pronunciation is more a w sound than a v sound... is it right the way the computer spells it?

"I am well" was not accepted. To me 'I am in good health', 'I am healthy' and 'I am well' are just alternative ways of saying the same thing
