12TH MAY: INTERNATIONAL NURSES DAY

Nurses in their whites- embodiment of peace and comfort
Sacrifices and service-great sons and daughters of God!
Born to serve, serve and serve the sick- men or women
Young or old- rich or poor- educated or uneducated-equal!

May TWELFTH today is National Nurses Day day to honor nurses
For their selfless services-but not rich- with cashless purses
The day “The Lady With the Lamp” Florence Nightingale
Strikes our minds! Nineteenth Century end it was!

Florence Nightingale—founded modern nursing. her strict use of hand-washing
And hygiene practices while caring for wounded soldiers in the Crimean War,
She and her helpers reduced the death rate very much ushering in nursing
As is known today. we recognize the role they play in our lives.

11TH MAY: NATIONAL TECHNOLOGY DAY!

11 May – National Technology Day
Every year National Technology Day is observed on 11 May to highlight the important role of Science in our daily lives and encourage students to opt for science as an option for a career. On this day Shakti, the Pokhran nuclear test was held on 11 May, 1998.

India’s National Technology Day on May 11 celebrates the country’s technological advancements. This day marks the date the technology industry in India earned several monumental achievements by breaking into the elite group of nations with nuclear weapons, conducting the successful flight of their first indigenous aircraft, and performing a successful test firing of the Trishul missile.

HISTORY OF NATIONAL TECHNOLOGY DAY

We all agree that technological advancements have been some of mankind’s greatest achievements. It has definitely made our lives easier, more efficient, and more productive, and we are always thankful for that.

The people of India showed their thanks when they declared May 11 as National Technology Day in 1999, following their grand achievements in the field on that day, the previous year. 

On May 11, 1998, the country conducted three successful nuclear tests at the Indian Army’s Pokhran Test Range under Operation Shakti. Two more nuclear tests were conducted on May 13, led by late President Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, which made India an official member of the elite club of nuclear power nations.

However, that was not all India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation achieved. On the same day, they also tested their first indigenous aircraft, Hansa-3, and conducted a successful test firing of the Trishul missile. 

The Prime Minister at the time, declared May 11 as a day of significant achievement for the country, and National Technology Day was observed for the first time on May 11, 1999. Since then, the Technology Development Board has been honoring scientists and engineers and their technological innovations that have added to the growth of India.

An important day

PURELY PERSONAL YET……………………….

It was exactly FIFTY TWO YEARS AGO THIS DAY IN 1970 that I got into wedlock with RENUKA B.A. B.T in a well known town known as UDAMALPET near the famous abode of LORD MURUGA- PALANI! I was then employed as Assistant Administrative Officer IN MY ALMA MATER LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA, DIVISIONAL OFFICE COIMBATORE where I learnt the Art and Science of life and living. We lived happily with our three gems of sons: VENKATARAMAN now in Chennai,, RAMNATH now in Bangalore and Dr. Lakshman in US! All the three are married and well settled in their lives!

We spent years happily in different places like Coimbatore, Ooty, Thanjavur, Kadapa, Erode, Salem, Chennai etc. Unable to see us happy with three gems of sons, Lord Yama took her away in June 2014.

An embodiment of patience and devotion she was!

Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive but to be young was very heaven
To be the Secretary of Chinmaya Mission Thanjavur was indeed a bliss

More than Geeta- “MY six thirty means six thirty neither six twenty nine
Nor Six thirty one! My eight means neither seven fifty nine nor eight not one!”
Such a punctualist to the core not to come across any longer
My refrain in my training classes used to be a subject of discussion on this
With a quiz “Can you tell me a Barrister turned spiritual head?”
As a clue poorvashrama name started with ‘B’ sanyashrama name started with ‘C”!
Eighth May is today a holy day! Swamiji’s jayanthi day!
Chinmayananda Saraswati born as  Balakrishna Menon on Eighth May

ITHAKA 732: PRELUDE

HERE is a communication from

y

Dear friend,

I’ll a bit late today. Already 2 weeks I have pain in my throat and problems to sleep, so this morning I went to the doctor, therefore the delay. I also received from the poet translations of his poem in English, Spanish and French, but there were some differences between them, so rather than less work these translations gave me more work. Actually I still did not get a reply from China about the last verse:

In English: do all living things still follow the old ways. Whereas in Spanish it says do all living creatures follow the old ways, which seems to me more logic as “things” generally not live.

Best wishes

Germain

hAn Ancient Lotus Seed and a Ge Kiln Porcelain Jar—


Prelude

An ancient idea, like an ancient lotus seed
hidden in the ground for thousands of years,
suddenly, but gently activated by cool running water
sprouts a bashful tender bud.

Ah, through the vicissitudes of the earth
you look so familiar and yet so unfamiliar.
The moment the fallen leaves and blooms are gone with the wind
a new lease of life comes floating with the current.
The same face, the same countenance
all unchanged ever since that time thousands of years ago.
What encased in fashionable clothes
is the not yet evolved skeleton of the body.
In the buds and among the stems and leaves,
the dewdrops are glittering as in those days.
The crowd is whirling and running in the wind,
and in the rain the plants are shaking their heads and waving.
Has anything changed to the world? Do all living things
in heaven and earth still follow the old ways?

முற்செயல்

நிலத்தில் ஆயிரக் கணக்கான ஆண்டுகள் மறைந்து கிடந்து

திடுமென ஆனால் முரட் டுத்தனமின்றி

குளிர்ந்த ஓடும் நீரினால் உந்தப்பட்டு ஒரு அழகான மொட்டாக

வருவதைப்போல

பழங்கால எண்ணம் உதித்தது

ஆ, நிலத்தின் அதிருஷ்ட மாற்றத்தால்

நீ அறியப்பட்டு இருந்தும் அறியப்படாமலும் .

விழுந்த இலையும் மலர்தலும்

காற்றோடு கலந்து விட்டன

ஒரு புதிய வாழ்வு அலையோடு மிதந்து வந்தது।

அதே முகம், அதே முகபாவம்

ஆயிரம் ஆயிரம் ஆண்டுகளாக அனைத்தும் மாறாதன.

அழகான ஆ டை அமைப்பு

உடலின் எலும்புக்கூ ட்டைமாற்றும் அளவிற்கு மாறவில்லை.

மொட்டுகளிலும் நடுத்தண்டிலும் இலைகளிலும்

அந்த நாட்களைப்போல பனித்துளிகள்மினுமினுக்கின்றன.

காற்றில் கூட்டம் சுற்றிச சுற்றி வருகின்றன. மழையில்

செடிகள் அவற்றின் தலைகளை அசைத்து கைகளை ஆட்டுகின்றன.

உலகத்தில் ஏதேனும் மாற்றம் ஏற்பட்டதா?

சொர்க்கத்திலும் நிலத்திலும்

எல்லா உயிரினங்களும் இன்னும்

பழைய பாதைகளையே பின்பற்றுகின்றனவா?
