What a great encouragement and inspiration! Out of the 299, mostly read post was VALLUVAM INSPIRED MAHATMA GANDHI- a subject that was so dear to my heart. It was my paper submitted in the International Thirukkural Conference held in Washington in 2006 and subsequently posted in this Blog on second October 2015.
During the period between Part 14 and part 15, besides my Monday-Saturday posts, Sunday Stories have carried the views of two of our relatively new Viewers viz JAGAN ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS on 8/1/2017. Mr N Jagannathan is the PRO of SEVALAYA. The second one is Shri Ramamurthi from Bangalore whose views were posted on 22/1/2017.
Since the last Tale Part 14, there have been a few happenings which I would like to share with my esteemed viewers.
“FLAMINGO FESTIVAL” AT SULURPETA(AP)-24/12/2016 ForeNoon)
It was indeed a great occasion and a detailed story was posted under the caption :IN THE WONDERLAND OF FLAMINGO POETS!” on the first day of the current year ie on 1/1/2017 in ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com
AWARD OF THE TITLE “KAVI NILAVU” 24/12/2016 Evening
On the same day in the evening in a pleasant function in Chennai, I was awarded the title “KAVI NILAVU” for my contribution to Tamil Poetry world.
“SANTHA VASANTHAM” TAMIL POETS MEET (28/1/17)
There is an excellent group of Tamil Poets, speakers, writers and scholars under the banner of “SANTHA VASANTHAM” founded a decade and half ago in Chennai having members from several parts of the world. Founder is ‘Kavi MaamaNi’, ‘KAVI VEZHAM’ Shri Ilandhai Ramaswami, a great Tamil poet. This entire group consists of excellent Tamil poets and it is my fortune that I, a VOP- Very Ordinary Person- could get acquainted, get entry and accepted as a member! Periodically they meet for about 6 hours, exchange pleasantries over breakfast and lunch, discuss literary matters, release books and have poetry rendering by all present. This was the first golden opportunity I got to attend. Each of the intending poet to render his poetry was given a line from the great National Poet Mahakavi Subrahmanya Bharathi and a Tamil poem in not more than 32 lines was to be presented.
A title “PERUM KAVICH CHUDAR” was conferred on the great poet HARIKRISHNAN by KAVIKKO Gnanachchelvan. Isaikkavi Ramanan and Advocate Bharathi devotee Ravi spoke in detail about the quality of head and heart of Shri Harikrishnan. Each speaker was introduced in a poetic language that was indeed unique and great. Poet Harikrishnan chaired the Poets’ Meet.
A book of letters to his wife in Tamil poems “KANANGALAI NIRUTHTHIYA KADITHANGAL” (The Letters that stopped the moments”) by KavimaamaNi Ilandhai Ramaswamy- first of its kind- letters in Tamil poetry written to his wife when he was away on profession, was released by Prof. Dr. V V Subramanian on the occasion and was scholarly reviewed by Shri Dakshinamurthi.
To a great extent the credit for the success of the Meet should go to Shri Kumar from Singapore, who was coordinating from there and came to Chennai a week in advance for the Meet and organized in an enviable manner.
“ARIVUK KALANJIYAM” AWARD (“TREASURE TROVE OF KNOWLEDGE” AWARD) (28/1/2017 AN)
There is a literary organization here in Chennai by name M T S Academy. Their main objective is to popularize the tenets of Valluvam-as propounded by Tamil Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar in his magnum Opus THIRUKKURAL written 2300 years ago.
This Academy in association with Nehru Yuva Kendra and NSS University of Madras in a gala function arranged in the Senate Hall of Madras University, honored four eminent scholars and me as is seen in the above card.
M T S Academy is well known to me for quite a few years as its Secretary Dr.Cheyon is very efficiently managing its multifarious activities including conducting Personality Development Programs free to the youth. I used to handle Time Management and Stress Management in those courses. Publication of a quarterly Science journal titled ARIVIYAL POONGA in Tamil and Science workshops in colleges are organized. Credit for Government of India-Ministry of Railways naming a long distance train from Tamilnadu to Nizamudin as TIRUKKURAL EXPRESS goes entirely to this Organization!
Some of the photographs taken on the occasion are included below:
Five were awarded on the day.

SEMINAR ON ENGLISH POETRY (29/1/17)
There is a nice organization named CHENNAI POETS’ CIRCLE with which I was connected closely till a few years ago. Aim of this circle is to bring in the Ambassadors of peace called Poets within its area and promote peace and harmony in the society through the medium of poetry. Somehow due to personal reasons/mishaps, I was away from their activities and on the occasion of their Seminar this year I attended the Meet along with my ward Miss Nivetha S -17 year old young poet delegate, presented our poems – she her “SISTER OH SISTER” and I “DANCE OF THE WIND” –both were well received by the co poet delegates from many parts of India. The day was quite enjoyable.. A detailed account is given in my ENVIOUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com under the title AMIDST AMBASSADORS OF PEACE on 31st January as “Month end story”. Kindly view and comment.
