Calculus is a stone seen. Now you should follow certain dietary and lifestyle changes to improve it naturally. Also drink plenty of water. No need of surgery at this stage but if you ignore, then it shall grow in size and be of more concern later.

My diet had been very consistent with less of fats and oil and more of water contained food and also i drink prescribed level of water for a normal human being. So how should it be attended to?

Radiologist Dr. Joe Antony's  Response
Hi astrodreamer, welcome to healthcaremagic,
Please consult a urologist. You appear to have a very small stone in the middle part of your right kidney. You should drink plenty of water; also some medicines can be taken daily for some time... to dissolve the stone. Usually this type of medication and moderate increase in intake of water should solve your stone problem in 2 to 3 months time.
Take care.
