public function notifyUser(Request $request){

   $user = User::where('id', $request->id)->first();

   $notification_id = $user->notification_id;
   $title = "Greeting Notification";
   $message = "Have good day!";
   $id = $user->id;
   $type = "basic";

   $res = send_notification_FCM($notification_id, $title, $message, $id,$type);
