MAY DAY

Labour Day has its origins in a movement mobilised by the labour union at the time of rising industrialization

May Day-Labor Day- to honor the working class who labor for a cause
The cause to make the people live in peace and harmony, and be happy
They sacrifice their pleasures and health, care not for comforts and suffer pain!
Right in the days when they were subjected to exploitation and strain!

Unfortunately the labor class exploiting the society becomes
Order of the day and the people are put to inconveniences!
Both seem to be at fault- expectations high among all pathetic.
Rights and duties go hand in hand and society to be sympathetic!

On this holy holiday let the blue or white colored-working class resolve
To be faithful to all and selves and do their duty with all their heart
Government and employers to take care of the employees, workers of all
Cadres -treating honorably, paying decently, respecting  humanly!

Great indeed are the culture and traditions of India-that is Bharath
In different States and many a time all over the country as a whole.
Climate, nature, people language differ yet we see unity in diversity
Including fame and name, glory and greatness that enhance the Nation’s dignity!

Fifteenth February is today – a day great for Manipuris
Lui Ngai Ni is the seed-sowing festival for the Naga tribes of Manipur
The festival heralds the season of seed sowing and marks the start
Of the year for the Nagas -a holy day indeed on their part!

Agriculture a noble culture and the agriculturalists great tribe
Who toil and till in sun and rain, to feed others- we have to imbibe
Their spirit of service for the humanity! Vagaries of monsoon hitting
Them hard and harsh. Let us wish Naga season all success this year flourishing!

Image result for World Wetlands Day 2nd February

Wonderful world created by the Lord Almighty- Omnipotent
Humans and animals, lands and oceans, hills and dales-significant
Wetlands, dry lands, marsh lands, deserts,-all created for the good of all
In the God’s beautiful creation all are equal and stand quite tall!

Every bit of land on earth has its immense value and use
It is for us to make the best use for peace and plenty profuse
Alas! Man in his selfishness converts wetlands into plots for flats
Unfortunate development in our society to put an end to..

Today is the WORLD WETLANDS DAY to raise awareness about values
And benefits of Wetlands for humanity and the planets like biologically
Diverse ecosystems to provide habitat for many species,
Serve as buffers on the coast against storms and flooding, and
Filter water by breaking down or transforming harmful pollutants.

As a teetotaler- at the instance of Kanchi Maha Swami
As a final year Degree student of Alagappa College,

November 1st WORLD VEGAN DAY

Family cooking a vegetarian meal.

The world knows well the PLEA FOR VEGETARIANISM
Advocated by Mahatma Gandhi as an expression
Of compassion and love for animals-yet another
Creation of the Lord almighty!- The Omnipotent!

Compassion Towards Animals-noble mission
Of veganism- refrain from using anything made
From animals- meat, eggs, milk, and honey avoid products
That use animal labor! What a great mission vegans have!

November first World Vegan Day is today-no animal
Racing or fighting be allowed! Non-violence, compassion
Towards all of nature’s creatures- heart of their philosophy.
All such activities are exploitative and cruel
Vegans, feel it is an issue of ethics and health.
Plant-Based Diet-advocated and practiced-
Their diet high in fiber and low in cholesterol reduce risk of
Heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.!
