Next will be THIRTIETH- TALE- in February 2019!!!
Here is 29th Tale –!
in several ways GOD has been so kind and compassionate to me in helping me to continue this Blog that has earned me a place of honor in the Asian Book of Records which in turn has earned me a Hon. Doctorate from the World Records University UK.
Since the Tale Part 28 on 4th November, much water has flown under the Ganges and mostly happy happenings.
During this period a number of Poets Meets were held and I had the fortune of attending a few. Noteworthy was the one attended on the Mahakavi Barathiyaar’s Birth day on eleventh December- I had already on 11th December made a post in this Blog and also a detailed Sunday Story titled King of Poets Birth day . Vanavil Panpattu Maiyam- RAINBOW CULTURAL CENTER-who have been organizing this day for the last 25 years, conducted a poetry competition on the top[ic “VEERA SUTHANTHIRAM” for which they received more than 500 entries out of which they selected 30 poems in the first round and they were to present their poems in the Meet at Barathiyar’s Memorial in Triplicane, Chennai after the JATHI PALLKKU –Royal Palanquin carrying Barathi’s statue in a procession from Parjhasarathy temple reached. Nothing gave me can give mr greater pleasure than presenting poem on Barathy’s words in the very place where he lived for some years and finally taken to the heavenly abode.
Two more Meets were conducted on Barathy by two organizations in Chennai on 16th December one by Kavi Oviya and the other by Ilkakiyach cholai. I presented my poems in Tamil “THEENGIZAIKKUM THEEYAVARAI” and “BARATHY ENADHU PERAASAAN”.
It is nothing but God’ s grace that made me launch this Blog “ENVIUS THOUGHTS” on 25th February 2015 and it appears as my PASSION and MISSION to make posts on a daily basis-Mondays to Saturdays poems in English and on Sundays ‘Sunday Story’ articles and this is 1450th post in 1395th day! This has brought me a place of honor in the Asia Pacific Book of Records and the UK based WORLD RECORDS UNIVERSITY has offered me an Honorary Doctorate. Thus your versatile Blogger N V Subbaraman has become Versatile Blogger DR. N V Subbaraman!!!!!!!! To me at least it looks funny!
INAUGURATION OF MONTH LONG DISCOURSES
In Hindu calendar this month of MARGAZHI is deemed to be a very sacred month. Lord Krishna declared that HE stands tall as MARGAZHI in the 12 months! That this is the first month in winter, and the devotees get up at as early as 4.00 am and go to the temples which increases the will power and spiritual power. Devotees of Lord Ayyappa take their annual pilgrimage to Sabarimala in Kerala where Ayyappa is, in thousands from all parts of India.
Andal a great devotee of Lord Vishnu wrote her 30 songs in Tamil –THIRUPPAVAI- in the early part of KALIYUGA- about 3100 years ago! Kaliyuga is reported to come to an end in another 20 years.
Great and learned scholars are invited to give month long discourses on Thiruppaavai in the nights. Thirumala-Thirupathi Devasthanam have arranged for discourses in 52 temples in Tamilnadu and more than 500 centers in the entire country in different languages.
16th of December this year happened to be the first of Margazhi month and in a local temple month long discourses were to be delivered by one authority in Tamil literature Dr. Kaliyan Sampath . I was given the honor of inaugurating the series by the temple management.

In this way number of views is progressing in its own speed of course giving a sense of achievement. I take pride and pleasure to communicate the crossing of every 1000 views to all my well-wishers through all possible methods- What’s-app, Face book two Accounts, Bloggers’ Meet-Up, Gmail and so on!
WHAT’S-APP A GREAT DEVICE
I used to wonder and admire modern modes of communication of which a nice part is WHAT APP device IS! I spent quite some time in a day on sending the messages through What ‘Sapp , receiving and responding.
First work in the morning is to communicate my Good morning message with the day’s Blog post to about 140 friends seen and unseen. A typical message that I send every day is as follows:
“Good morning. Today it is “INTERNATIONAL HUMAN SOLIDARITY DAY- December 20th.” in Envius Thoughts in https://nvsr.wordpress.com for your kind read and response. Thanks”. .
In those days all the messages will be sent easily; now there is a restriction on the number that it can be sent at a time NOT MORE THAN FIVE. As a result I have to repeat the process 28 times to send to 140 ! As and when I receive a message through this mode I get an auto-signal and I immediately turn to, read and respond! Great indeed is the experience!
