Dhanna grew cereals without sowing! founder of the swami swami samaj
By his mystery and divine power. due to which swami caste was.
Ploughing his fields, a large number of sanyasis came hungry and sought food.
Dhanna Bhagat gave them all the seeds he had kept for sowing his fields,
And ploughed the fields without sowing seeds. The fields produced no food grains,
But gourds. his land-owner came to collect the levy, Dhanna Bhagat offered two gourds.
Surprised and insulted, land owner broke the gourds in anger, only to find that they
Were full of pearls. Bhakti-saint Meera refers to this story in her poem,
“sun lijo binati mori, main sharan gahi prabhu teri”
Blessed Saints and sages have all the blessings of the Almighty!

My beloved father used to advise us on all possible occasions that we must be doing something extraordinary in the world that will have a positive impact on the society!

This has been working in mind right from childhood and a stage has come at the age o0f 78+ to assess whether we I could come any where near my father’s advice.

I will be doing injustice to the Organizations and individuals if I discuss how far I deserve these Rewards as they are all great in their own way and have not given the rewards casually or just like that for fun. They have their consideration before deciding on the reward and to whom they are given.

Just an ordinary Mathematics graduate of 1961 through Alagappa College affiliated to Madras University and employed in premier Life Insurance Corporation of India for four decades and more- nothing to do with literature! But almost all the above rewards are for literary achievements only! That looks a paradox!

God’s grace propelled an urge in me and in deference to my father’s constant motivation to achieve something in life I put up my efforts and the result is seen in the above rewards.

செயற்கரிய செய்வார் பெரியர்; சிறியர்

செயற்கரிய செய்கலா தார்     (குறள் 26)

The small the path of ease pursue

The great achieve things rare to do (KuraL 26)

I used to say that Thiruvalluvar from his heavenly abode guide me ever and takes me by his hand once I step out of my home and bring me back safe and sound along with Barathiyar and Mahatma Gandhi! In conjunction with my father’s dinning, I put in my efforts in the literary field and by HIS grace, I could achieve something and the lst furnished above is a proof.

BUT THEN……………………………….These REWARDS are constantly REMINDING me not to feel great and take rest but go on with your efforts.

Yes that is how I would say about my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com which is today 1594 days old with 1637 posts- without a day’s break since 25th February 2015! This Blog has earned me a place of HONOR in the ASIA-PACIFIC BOOK OF RECORDS which in turn has made the WORLD RECORDS UNIVERSITY UK to offer me an honorary Doctorate.

The NATIONAL ICON Reward by the GLOBAL RECORD AND RESEARCH FOUNDATION is based on the Blog crossing TWO LAKH VIEWS from more than 200 countries in the world! This constantly reminds me to continue a post every day without fail ‘as long as possible’! – of course “as long as possible” is a million dollar question!

Writing a poem every day from Monday to Saturday and a Sunday story  for every Sunday quite a drain on my mind and body. But these REMINDING REWARDS make me not to look back but proceed with my work –doing as a duty- leaving the fruit for God to decide. BUT DUTY IS OF COURSE A PLEASURE!

Well my dear viewers-sufficient I believe for the week. More than TWO LAKH VIEWS of the Blog, REMINDING REWARDS will give me strength sufficient to think and write every day without fail with God’s GRACE AND BLESSINGS!

My only request and appeal to all my esteemed viewers is only to give me your honest feedback on the Blog and if you feel either the lay out, topics, contents, method will make you more at ease in viewing, definitely I will improve my style. After all a writer, a poet or a singer only needs his admirers to be at ease and comfort and enjoy. Be free to send your kind feedback. We shall meet tomorrow and till then may GOD BE WITH YOU! GOOD BYE!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
REMINDER OF REWARDS
COME WHAT MAY! CONTINUE YOUR LITERARY ACTIVITIES TO DO AND ACHIEVE SOMETHING GREAT AND YOUR BELOVED FATHER FROM HIS HEAVENLY ABODE WILL ENJOY AND CONTINUE HIS BLESSINGS TO YOU.
GOD ALWAYS STANDS BY THE SIDE OF THE TRUE, SINCERE AND HONEST WORKERS WHEREVER THEY ARE AND WORKING.
REWARDS OR NO REWARDS, WORK CONSCIENTIOUSLY -“ACTION IS THY DUTY-FRUIT IS NOT THY CONCERN” LORD KRISHNA’S DIVINE WORDS. WHAT HE TOLD ARJUNA EQUALLY APPLIES TO ALL ON EARTH!

SREE SREE THAKUR

Anukul as a boy.jpg

The holy land of India that is Bharath gave birth to hundreds
Of Saints and Sages, Gurus and Seers to guide all here and all over!
A guru is a “teacher, spiritual guide, godman,”. A guru, must go
Through a standard initiation process Diksha, where he receives mantra.

ENVIUS THOUGHTS to carry to the extent possible every day
Some thing about one such Saint. Today is on SREE SREE THAKUR
Anukulchandra_Chakravarty”>Anukulchandra Chakravarty ‘Sree Sree Thakur’
Born o9n fourteenth September Eighteen Eighty Eight.

Sree Sree Thakur a medical practitioner after his study
From Kolkata Medical College. left his established medical
Practice to his friend and established Satsang Himaitpur
On Second September Nineteen Forty Six before Partition
Of India, moved to Deoghar in India from his birthplace Pabna.
Satsang currently has its main center. Thakur died in January Sixty Nine.

 

SREE SREE THAKUR’S MESSAGE

“The degeneration of humanity began at that moment when the unseen God was made infinite and, ignoring the seers, the worship of their sayings began. Oh mankind! If you desire to invoke your good, forget sectarian conflict. Be regardful to all the past prophets. Be attached to your living master or God and take only those who love Him as your own. Because all the past prophets are consummated in the divine man of the present.” Anukulchandra did not accept anyone as his disciple if he or she wanted to change his or her faith.  Anukulchandra advocated that people of all faiths could come together and strengthen communal harmony.”

SIRSAASANAA-how to? NOT ME!!!!!!

WORLD REFUGEE DAY June 20th.

 Every minute 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution or terror

In a way I feel we are all refugees sent by the creator Almighty
To this world for a temporary phase-but our lives made  worthwhile rightly!
But real refugees are unfortunate people becoming refugees
Due to external reasons-very miserable and atrocious to the core!

World Refugee Day marks a key moment for the public to show support
For families forced to flee.June Twentieth today is World Refugee Day.
Every year is observed with different themes declared by United Nations
This year’s theme is Global Compact on Refugees.indeed very important one.

It calls for investment in communities that host refugees to help ease
The pressure on the host and to help refugees become self-reliant.
Some important quotes on this:
Albert Einstein: “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything”

Kofi Annan: “I urge you to celebrate the extraordinary courage and contributions of refugees past and present.”

Anne Frank: “How wonderful it is that no one has to wait, but can start right now to gradually change the world! How wonderful it is that everyone, great and small, can immediately help bring about justice by giving of themselves.”

Martin Luther King Jr: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

TILL WE SEE THE HEAVEN!

Image result for Images for India to become a Heaven

 

Great country, great people
Noble thoughts, noble deeds
Hallowed Himalayas, reverberating rivers
Fertile fields, magnificent minerals
Fascinating forests, flora and fauna
Lovely languages, lovely people
Seers and saints, philosophers and scientists
Variety of knowledge, variety of culture
Unity in diversity all that we nurture
Love is God, Truth is God
All that we preach sure with nod
Values of life piously pursued!
Ichobad – glory going?

Old order changeth yielding place to new
New order bringeth glory in high view
Along with growth, greed and selfishness in a few
Negative values spread in all its hue!

Older people lamenting loss of values
Younger ones losing faith in moral values
Middle ones mooring neither here nor there
Ship of the Nation inching without care!

What a great people
What a great fall
Violence, betrayal, backstabbing
Jealousy, ingratitude, high cheating
Falsehood, corruption, dishonesty
Deceptions, treachery, infidelity
All that hinders Nation’s progress
All that plunders people’s wealth
All we need is a Mahatma’s lead
All we plead is noble deed
Another form of freedom struggle
To ensure peace and plenty free from peril!
Shall we get another Mahatma
To involve the intellectuals
To galvanize the society
To integrate the fractured nation
To infuse faith and confidence
To inject oneness and brotherhood
To lift us from lethargy and indifference!

Of! my beloved Mother Bharath!
Let me set my vision so high
Let my Bharath soar to sky
Let these winged words fly and fly
Till we see the Heaven so nice!
