12th May- International Nurses Day!

Nursing the World to Health - ICN announces theme for ...

In a way the role of Nurses is as great as Doctors- even more
Today twelfth May is International Nurses Day to remember
The anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birthday and-  celebrates
The contribution given by the selfless nurses to society around the world.

On this day the International Council of Nurses organisation
Produces an International Nurses kit to educate and assist
Health workers globally with a different theme every year.

The International Council of Nurses today announced the theme for

International Nurses Day 2021 (#IND2021). the overarching theme

for IND is Nurses: A Voice to Lead. The sub-theme for 2021 is A Vision for Future Healthcare.

“This global COVID-19 pandemic has shown the world the important role that nurses play in keeping people healthy across the lifespan,” said Annette Kennedy, ICN President. “While there has been significant disruption to healthcare, there has also been significant innovation that has improved access to care.

Howard Catton, ICN Chief Executive Officer, says, “The pandemic has exposed the weaknesses in our health systems and the enormous pressures our nurses are working under, as well as shining a light on their incredible commitment and courage. What the pandemic has also done is given us the opportunity to call for a reset and the opportunity to explore new models of care where nurses are at the center of our health systems. We can only achieve this vision of future healthcare by generating new policies that pave the way for this sea-change and that is another key area IND2021 will seek to focus.”

The IND2021 theme reflects on the impact of COVID-19 on the health system and the nursing profession and how these might be affected into the future. Nurses, as the largest healthcare profession, must play an integral part in planning the future of healthcare.

The International Council of Nurses has set the theme
For this year as “nursing the world to health”, with a focus
On the “true value of nurses to the people of the world”!

Nursing a profession within the health care sector
Focused on the care of individuals, families, and communities
So they may attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and
Quality of life. Nurses different from other health care providers
By their approach to patient care, training, and scope of practice.
Nurses practice in many specialties with differing levels of prescription
Authority. Many nurses provide care within the ordering scope of
Physicians, and this traditional role has shaped the public image of nurses!

On this holy day for nurses, let us compliment and wish the nursing fraternity ALL WELL!

Well took care of her boys three, brought them well, educated nice,
Teaching at home too! extra reading, TV serials, discussions
With friends during her evening walk in the colony for years

MAY 9th- Mothers’ Day

Mother's Day 2021: 10 Ways to Celebrate Mom from A Distance | The Old  Farmer's Almanac

Today the second Sunday of May ninth is observed as MOTHERS’DAY and hence this week’s Sunday story in your favorite Blog Envius Thoughts is this. (2396th post}

Hinduism has taught us that MOTHER is supreme and even God comes later. “MATHA, PITHA, GURU, DHEYVAM”. For prioratizing prayers to the great FIRST to be revered is MOTHER, SECOND FATTHER, THIRD TEACHER and FOURTH IS GOD!!!

Such a great mother – a house wife – offers her prayer thus:(published in my prayer series at the beginning of my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS )

“Oh! Divine Mother of all creations
Blessed am I a tool for procreation
Enjoying life as housewife with high education
Which I use to teach my children
Who shall be responsible citizens
And serve the society with all devotion!

Bless me serve my neighbor well
Whose wards look up-to me to tell
All they need to stand with strength
And sharpen their mind and spirit in length
Grant me wisdom, love and patience
Make my sweet home abode of Providence!

Here we shall see some of the famous thoughts and evaluate ourselves:

Famous Mother’s Day Thoughts

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

“There never was a woman like her. She was gentle as a dove and brave as a lioness… The memory of my mother and her teachings were, after all, the only capital I had to start life with, and on that capital I have made my way.”
~ Andrew Jackson

“Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.”
~ Barbara Kingsolver

“In all my efforts to learn to read, my mother shared fully my ambition and sympathized with me and aided me in every way she could. If I have done anything in life worth attention, I feel sure that I inherited the disposition from my mother.”
~ Booker T. Washington

“It seems to me that my mother was the most splendid woman I ever knew… I have met a lot of people knocking around the world since, but I have never met a more thoroughly refined woman than my mother. If I have amounted to anything, it will be due to her.”
~ Charles Chaplin

“I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn word of my good mother.”
~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“The noblest calling in the world is that of mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after painting shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give.”
~ David O. McKay

“My mother never gave up one me. I messed up in school so much they were sending me home, but my mother sent me right back.”
~ Denzel Washington

“The mother, more than any other, affects the moral and spiritual part of the children’s character. She is their constant companion and teacher in formative years. The child is ever imitating and assimilating the mother’s nature. It is only in after life that men gaze backward and behold how a mother’s hand and heart of love molded their young lives and shaped their destiny.”
~ E.W. Caswell

“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.”
~ George Washington

“The mother’s heart is the child’s schoolroom.”
~ Henry Ward Beecher

“Education commences at the mother’s knee, and every word spoken within the hearing of little children tends towards the formation of character.”
~ Hosea Ballou

When Robert Ingersoll, the notorious skeptic, was in his heyday, two college students went to hear him lecture. As they walked down the street after the lecture, one said to the other, “Well, I guess he knocked the props out from under Christianity, didn’t he?” The other said, “No, I don’t think he did. Ingersoll did not explain my mother’s life, and until he can explain my mother’s life I will stand by my mother’s God.”
~ James S. Hewett, Illustrations Unlimited, Tyndale.

“Mothers have as powerful an influence over the welfare of future generations as all other earthly causes combined.”
~ John S.C. Abbott

“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power.”
~ Maya Angelou

“The future destiny of a child is always the work of the mother.”
~ Napoleon Bonaparte

“My mother said to me, “If you become a soldier you’ll be a general; if you become a monk you’ll end up as the pope.” Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.”
~ Pablo Picasso

“An ounce of mother is worth a ton of priest.”
~ Spanish proverb

“Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.”
~ Stevie Wonder

Many scholars have concluded that you cannot really understand John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, unless you understand his mother Susanna Wesley. She was so instrumental in his life that she inevitably affected the movement and its direction. Americans know that Abraham Lincoln led this nation through perhaps its time of greatest crisis; but who was it that made Abraham Lincoln the man that he was? I know what Lincoln thought. He said it was his mother. I would submit to you this morning that there is not a person sitting here that in one, five, ten, a thousand different ways has not been forever influenced by their mother. I firmly believe that you cannot understand who a person is and what motivates them until you understand their past. And you cannot understand a person’s past without understanding the source that co-created that person along with God-their parents.
~ Unknown

“The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.”
~ W. R. Wallace

Thus comes to an end this week’s Sunday story with hope and confidence that our esteemed viewers have enjoyed this post, and we shall meet tomorrow as usual and till then may MOTHER;S GRACE BE ON AND WITH YOU to continue for ever!


Oh, My Sweetest Love!

Oh, my sweetest love, my beloved mother,

Who else can be sweeter than you-a feather

But for you, I could not be here in this world

I can make this known to the world very bold.

Oh, my sweetest love, my beloved father

How kind you have been to me all these years

Where one can find this love other than parents

I thank God for blessing me with you both.

Oh, my sweetest love, my respected teacher

You teach me all noble things in my life

You are next to my beloved parents sure

I love and respect with all my heart pure!

ITHAKA POEMS 682/683-ELECTRONIC LOVE and On the Death of a Day old Child-இதாகா பாடல்கள்

Here is a communication received from my Spanish friend Mr. Germain:

Dear Tamil friend,

Friday, poetry day…

Several friends and translators have proposed to select one of my new, rather philosophical poems. Some even translated them (I will select one next week), but  as Ithaca 683 I selected a poem of our Macedonian translator as I had promised her the publication.

I did not know the expression “duck face”. It probably is not used in other languages.  The poet  “enlightened” me : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck_face

I don’t know if there is a similar expression in your language. But if you translate duck face, I imagine that most of the readers won’t understand the meaning. I didn’t.  Maybe you can replace it by forced, mannered face. In fact, not natural. The purpose of many persons is to look  “special” at Face Book and other so called “social” media, which are not social at all, the owner being one of the richest men in the world, not investing a cent of his billions in “social”, human projects.  

Seeing the heartbreaking images of what is happening in India I hope that your health is ok.

Thank you in advance for your translation and promotion.

Best regards


Ps I did not find your translation of Ithaca 682. Please send as well.

Electronic Love

Love is on sale in the shop windows of desire
in the Book of Faces where everyone is taking a selfie

with the duck face of despair
as a pop-up of the melancholic everyday
in the society in which everything can be bought
for only 2.99 euros at a 50-percent discount—
but the soul is what’s really reduced.

மின்மக் காதல்/அன்பு

விருப்பம் என்னும் கடையில் அன்பும் காதலும் விலைக்கு

முகநூலில் ஒவ்வொருவரும் ’செல்ஃபீ’ எடுத்துக் கொள்கின்றனர்

நம்பிக்கை இழந்த நிலையில்,தலை தாழ்ந்த நிலையில்

ஒவ்வொரு நாள் வேதனை ஒலியோடு

எதை வேண்டுமானாலும் பெறக்கூடிய சமுதாயத்தில்

பணத்தோடு- தள்ளுபடியோடு

ஆனால் இழப்பது, குறைத்துக் கொள்வது ஆன்மாவை!

All dead, day old children will welcome you.
The wind will sing my lullabies to you,
when the sun falls where the saddest grass grows.
You are the beginning when light is wise.
God will guard to the end of days your day,
In the land of manna, Eden of bread.
With ray and shade you will play pranks all day.
Autumn will teem with the brown of your eyes,
With my grief will forever weep the dew.

ஒருநாள் வயதுக் குழந்தையின் இறப்பில்

அனைவரும் இறந்தனர்- சில நாள் குழந்தைகள் வரவேற்கும்

காற்று தாலாட்டுப் பாடல் உங்களுக்குப் பாடும்

கதிரவன் மறைந்து, வேதனை அடைந்த புற்கள் வளர்கின்றது

வெளிச்சம் மெய்யறிவு பெறும் பொழுது

உனது நாளின் முடிவை இறைவன் காப்பாற்றும் நேரத்தில்

அமிர்த நிலத்தில்,ரொட்டி ஈடனில்,

கதிரோடும்,நிழலோடும் நாள் முழுதும்

குறும்புசெய்து விளையாடும் பொழுது!

கண்களின் குளுமையோடு கனிதரும் பருவத்தில்

இணையும் பொழுது

எனது வேதனை பனித்துளிகளை

எப்பொழுதும் அழச்செய்யும் பொழுது!

World ending asteroid strike on 6th May 2021 ! – Nostradamus

Laugh and/or Watch!!!!!

Many saints and seers have already predicted that the Earth will face the 3rd world war, natural calamities etc. in the next 2-3 years. It is highly important to practice spirituality for self protection and obtain God’s blessings. At least Hindus should start now !

 Nostradamus, the famous seer, has predicted that an asteroid may destroy the earth on 6th May 2021. Nostradamus has made prophecies till the year 3797. His prediction that the earth will be destroyed in 1999 did not come true, so one has to wait and watch whether this prophecy will !!!!???

1. Nostradamus has predicted that the year 2021 will be full of destruction. Soldiers with microchips implanted into their brains will be introduced to the world army. Fire and a long trail of sparks will be seen in the sky on 6th May 2021. The scientists monitoring the asteroids say that, ‘the asteroid 2009 FZ4 would possibly strike the Earth on May 2021. The technique of implanting microchip in the soldier’s brain will be discovered. There will be a remarkable discovery in the advanced technology used for soldiers.’

(Courtesy : Nedrick News)

2. Nostradamus has also claimed that Russian scientists would develop a biological weapon and virus which will cause the destruction of the whole human world. No great person will be alive. The whole world will come to an end.

3. Some parts of the world witness devastating earthquake in the year 2021.

If we simply LAUGH, let us! If we want to WATCH, let us!!If we want to laugh and watch LET US!!!

Let us all pray the Almighty to ensure the predictions of Nostradamas go wrong!


World Portuguese Language Day 2021

In the creation of the Universe, Saraswathy- Goddess of Learning

Has created languages many for the people to move and converse

To communicate their thoughts and ideas fluently and comfortably!

One such great language is PORTUGESE with lovely grammar and literature!

Today MAY FIFTH is “WORLD PORTUGESE LANGUAGE DAY” a sweet day indeed!

FIFTH May was established in 2009 by the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries

(CPLP) – an intergovernmental organization that has been in official partnership with

UNESCO since 2000, and which brings together peoples with the Portuguese language

As one of the foundations of their specific identity – to celebrate the Portuguese

Language and Lusophone cultures. In 2019, the 40th session of UNESCO’s General Conference

Decided to proclaim THIS DAY of each year as “World Portuguese Language Day”.

The Portuguese language is one of the most widespread languages in the world,

With more than 265 million speakers spread through all continents, AND also

The most widely spoken language in the southern hemisphere. Portuguese remains,

Today, a major language of international communication and a language

With a strong geographical projection, destined to increase.
