FARMERS’ DAY IS TODAY

 

God in HIS immense compassion has created this world
With all living beings wonderful -to take care young and old
With the groups of people following their own vocation
For the mutual happiness of all with satisfaction!

Farming community playing the role of a fulcrum
Taking care of the need of the world-food for all -dictum
To show the gratitude in the land of Tamils-this day
Is dedicated to play tributes-FARMERS’ DAY- holy day!

Farmers on their part pay their gratitude to their friends great
Cows and bulls- inseparable from the farmers’ lives- give treat
Decorate, play, pray and spend the day in joy and happiness
We salute the farmers and wish them great wellness!

THIRUVALLUVAR DAY IS TODAY

 

India that is Bharath with its hoary culture
Intellectual and spiritual literature
Add greatness and earn place of pride among the nations
One great work was Thirukkural- winning admiration!

Tamil saint Poet Thiruvalluvar was born this day
More than two thousand years ago- a sacred day
Authored the great work of couplets thousand three hundred
And thirty-covering virtues, wealth and love- a wonder.

Greatness of a country depends on the quality
Of its people- culture, knowledge and nobility.
Culture and literature it has produced for long
Greatly valued and recognized by the world along!

-N V Subbaraman

Today is a holyday –Makara Sankaranthi Day- Pongal Day- very auspicious day! Thanks giving Day to the Lord Sun for having blessed the agriculturists with plenty of produce filling the coffers of paddy and other cereals and grains.
This is a very significant day in my personal life in as much as it was on this auspicious day Makara Sankaranthi Day- 14th January 1961- FIFTY SEVEN years ago I gave up taking coffee or tea as a final year student of my degree course in Alagappa College, Karaikudi in response to the advice of the great Saint Jagath Guru Shri Chandra sekarendra Saraswathy of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam – recognized as a MAHA PERIYAVA! I have elaborately written about this important event of my life under the caption GOOD BYE TO COFFEE in this Blog (kindly go to the archives.

This I owe to the grace of my God of Learning and my esteemed Viewers support. Kindly read my post titled ENVIUS THOUGHTS ENTERS THE INDIA BOOK OF RECORDS from the archives of https://nvsr.wordpress.com.
The Lord Almighty has blessed us with this human life to LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL and HELP EVER HURT NEVER. To the extent possible we must achieve something that should be remembered by our posterity; that will indeed be the fulfillment of ones birthl I used to contemplate often whether we are leaving something to the world.

One of the things that come to my mind and gives a sense of satisfaction is my translation of the great Saint Composer Shri Sathguru Thyagaraja’s Pancha Rathna Keerthanas –FIVE GEMS OF COMPOSITIONS- to Tamil from the original Telugu at the instance of a great scholar and devotee of Maha periyava Translation by itself has not much of significance unless otherwise it is rendered by a competent group of musicians. and in this case it was a group from Madurai comprising Smt. Ranganayaki Sachidanandam- vocal, Shri Sachidanandam- violin- and Dr. K Thiyagarajan-Mridangam. The CD was brought out by an organization named THISRADWANI. 

 

 

.When a leading Tamil monthly magazine KALAIMAGAL made a review of the translation brought out in the form of a CD by a leading musical troupe of Madurai- Smt. Ranganayaki Sachithanandam vocal, Shri Sachidanandam violin and Dr. K Thyagarajan Mridhangam- There was a wave of demand for the CD from many countries where the Tamil magazine is read –it was in February 2013.
When Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam former President of India – a great lover of Karnatic music heard the CD and called on the artists in Madurai to hear the songs rendered in person which was reported by me in my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHFS , another wave of demand arose.
Newspaper like the HINDU is a powerful medium and on 15th December they commended the translation, a third wave was in and continues till now. Spate of phone calls enquiring about the translation and requesting for the CDs continues and I am still attending to promptly! Significance about this translation is despite the appeal of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in the year 1963 while inaugurating the Thyagabramma aradhana for translating the Telugu keerthanas into different Indian languages for the people all over can understand and appreciate the musical outpourings of the Saint Composer musician, no attempts were made and this translation of mine is very first. I take it as God’s will and grace.
Come December-January-Chennai Music Season is on! Karnatic musicians and music lovers from all over the world flock to Chennai!
I had a good opportunity to visit two of the programmes- one Chennaiyil Thituvaiyaru at Kamarajar Arangam and the other Mylaopre Fine Arts Society in their auditorium. In the earlier one I was honored for my translation of Thyagayya’s Pancha Rathna Keerthanas.

 

Latest news is that one of the karnatic music lovers from US who has come to India wanted to take about 25 CDs to enable him to distribute the same among the music schools in US to enable them to make their students sing

Thus comes to an end this TALE OF A BLOGGER Part 22 with my hearty thanks to the Almighty, WORDPRESS and my valuable and esteemed viewers from all over the globe. Latest viewer is from Northern Mariana Islands!!!!!
We shall meet on Monday. Thanks.

PONGAL DAY IS TOMORROW 14th January

 

Great India that is Bharat- holy Motherland of stature
Has its ways of living and worshiping noble Mother nature
Tomorrow is Pongal day-makara Sankaranthi- holy day
For all when the Sun deemed to be God worshiped by all for His grace!

A great day is tomorrow to thank the SUN GOD
The giver of love and light, power and strength
End of harvest season bringing cheers and joy
Plenty of paddy and sugar cane to enjoy!

Agriculture sustains the world and people
Agriculturists sacrificing their all
For you and me deserving our thanks and praise
Let us keep their joy as ours and make them rise!

Let on this day our prayers go for the world
To prosper! Its welfare and peace goal golden!
Forget not the animal friends who serve us
All through in their own way without making fuss!

Bull fight, rekla race, ruse fight-depict not valor
Sure inflicting on the dumb beings a terrible torture!
To me the Tamil, my tradition and culture taught me more
Showing love to all living beings-humans and animals, sure.

NATIONAL YOUTH DAY 12th JANUARY.

 

Here is a Saint-Swami born on this day in Eighteen Sixty three
With his great address”Brothers and sisters of America” free
Carried the day in Chicago and the world turned its eyes on us
Great Swami Vivekananda day is today-very famous!

Observed as National Youth Day- great and noble homage paid right
To rouse the feelings and emotions of the Indian youth stright
To imbibe the Swami’s teachings on our culture and tradition
The hope for the future of our Motherland -Bharat -to fruition!

Youth power is indeed the great and strong power that keeps our heads high
To be harnessed well right from the early days of life lest goes dry
Schools and colleges, parents and society have a role to play
In molding at the right stage for the greatness of the society!

PITY OR ATROCITY!

 

Is it a pity no, it is an atrocity very sure
Arising out of humans’ utter selfishness simple and pure!
Vehicle population racing with human population
May be a sign of prosperity but causing deprivation!

Agricultural lands being converted into nasty flats
For the growing population depriving lands which deflate
Food and air!, on all the colonies existing expanding
For greater comforts and conveniences selfish Encroaching!

Roads and streets get shrunken thanks to encroachments unauthorized
Court orders and Government laws and rules not withstanding- disobeyed
Managed with the power of money and muscle here and there
Atrocity! But none can escape the powerful arms of God sure!
