POLITICIAN cum LITERARY SCHOLAR!

I am not a politician but a keen observer of political developments in and around me in Tamilnadu, India and the world!Political parties and the politicians of different hues and colors are fascinating indeed!

This week’s Sunday story deals with a friend of mine who was the All India General Secretary of the Lok Janshakthi party of Hon. Ramvilas Paswan. Mr. P Chandrakesan of Chennai  a politician as well as a Tamil writer- scholar- passed away recently when he was just short of one year for his HUNDRED!

When he visited me in my flt at Jeevan Bima Nagar, Chennai, we were discussing more on literature than politics. In fact in one of the Tamil monthly magazines edited and published by him with the title ”நீதிக்கான விடியல்” (NEETHIKKAANA VIDIYAL) he was publishing an epic poem “”பிரபஞ்சம் ஒரு தேரோட்டம்”-Universe- a Chariot on the Move” written by one leading poet Sri Narana.Manivannan in Tamil and translated by me into English as a serial for more than a couple of years. In fact that was published in this Blog available in the archives. Even on 19th inst. one chapter was published in this Blog which was well received by the Blog’s  esteemed readers.

This week’s Sunday story carries a message of condolence in Tamil by Mr. Manivannan and my English translation hereunder:

கண்ணீர் அஞ்சலி

காலமும் அறிவும் வெளியும் வெடித்துச் சிதறிவிட்ட
பிரபஞ்சத்தின் கண்ணீர் அஞ்சலி!
ராம்விலாஸ் பஸ்வான்ஜியின் அகில இந்திய லோக்ஜனசக்தியின் பொதுச் செயலர்
அன்பு அண்ணன்  சந்திரகேசன்ஜி நூற்றாண்டைத் தொட்டுத் தொடருவார் எனக் காத்திருந்தேன்.தொடாமலேயே பல நூற்றாண்டுகளைத் தாண்டி விட்டார்.
.தலித்முரசு, நீதிச்சக்கரம் சுழல்கிறது. நீதிக்கான விடியல் போன்ற பல மாத இதழ்களின் நிறுவனர்.
.தலையங்கங்களின் சங்கமம் போன்ற பலநூல்களின் ஆசிரியர்..
ஆம்பூர் பெரியசாமியின் திராவிடப் பாரம்பரியத்தைச் சார்ந்த பெருமகன்.
.அன்பு, பாசம், நட்பு, பக்குவம் போன்ற பல நல் எண்ணக் குவியல்களின் சாகரம். மனித சமூகத்தில் சாதி, தீண்டாமை எல்லாம் இல்லை என்று அவரிடம் வாதம் செய்வேன். ஒத்துக் கொள்ளவே மாட்டார். இன்று மனித சமூகமே உண்மையான தீண்டாமையை வாழ்வியலாகக் கொண்டு  விலகியே நிற்கிறது. அவர் இல்லாத காலமும் வெளியும் கூட வெடித்துச் சிதறிவிட்டதோ?
வழிந்தோடும் கண்ணீருடனும், வற்றாத மனக் கவலையுடனும், வாடிக்கொண்டிருக்கும் அவர்தம் குடும்பத்தாருடன் என்னையும் இணைத்துக் கொள்கிறேன்.                                                                                      என்றும்
அன்புத்தம்பி
நாரண மணிவண்ணன்
சிதம்பரம்

When translated into English it reads like this:

CONDOLENCES

Tearful message of condolences

Time, knowledge and space blown to pieces and tearful message of condolences of the Universe!.

Ramvilas Paswanji’s All India Lok Janasakthi’s General Secretary

Dear brother Chandrakesanji’s stepping into his centenary year, I was expecting.  Without stepping into he has crossed several hundreds of years

Founder of several monthly magazines like DALITH MURASU, NEETHICH CHAKKARAM SUZALKIRATHU, NEETHIKKANA VITIYAL and so on

Author of many books like THALAIYANGKANGAKALIN SANGAMAM he is..

He belongs to the Dravidian family of Ambur Periyasami

He is an ocean of great qualities of Love, affinity, friendship, maturity etc. I used to argue with him that in the human society, there is no caste, un-touch-ability etc but he will never accept the same. Today, human society is adopting as a way of life real un-touch-ability and stands at a distance. Is it that his time and space without him has exploded and broken to pieces!

I join his family who are in grief with uncontrolled tears of sorrow and, unabated mental worries                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Ever

Dear younger brother

Narana. Manivannan

Chidambaram.

With this we end this  Sunday Story and some insights have been given about the POLITICIAN cum LITERARY SCHOLAR! and I do hope our respected readers would have appreciated the personality. We shall meet tomorrow as usual and till then bye.

Flow of Time in the Timeless World

TIME
If deemed imagination, imagination
If deemed illusion, illusion
If deemed REAL, Real!
For human life it is TRUTH
Since it beholds the earth
On the earth, described as TIME
Day, hour, month and year!
TIME is submitted to calculation!
Found beneficial to human life
Has come into practice and usage!
Biology knows no ‘present’
Past, present and future
Sure different from each and varied
Calendar tells us the TIME
Wrist watch shows us the TIME
Make us conscious, gives us awareness
Various units of time,
Various measures of time
Different and varied!

Even to think
Of Sun and earth
Exploding and
Becoming a memorial,
Both may take years million
To role by and pass!
What is there inside
The earth’s belly?
Await the chater next
And see what the heat can do
Fire can lead
Surprises may visit us!
May be, we are enthralled!

 
Universe
That was born about
A thousand five hundred crore
Years ago, generously pours
Power and heat unlimited
Till this day!
A magnificent philanthropist!
Real evolution is
The evolution of the living beings;
Along with the Universe!
Universe
Along with the living beings!
That great Universe
Keeping a tab on
TIME, DISTANCE and SPACE
Actively growing into
Magnificent Universe
Expanding, revolving
Revolving fast and rotating
Rotating big
Gaining length, breath and height
Active, gigantically active!
Goes fast and strong!
Universe
Developed with the power of heat
Passing through the flood of TIME
Moving through the cyclone of TIME
Later Limitless heat began subsiding
Vibrating heat reverberated
Sprout and blossom!

TALE OF A BLOGGER 36

Yes, what is the magic of TIME! Goddess of Time is very powerful and SHE expects everyone on earth to handle time effectively and efficiently. On the one hand we find the people not knowing what to do with that ”TIME” and on the other hand we do come across people praying the GODDESS OF TIME why she has done only twenty four hours a day and why not it be 48? May be man designed yet……….

I am probably neither here nor there! That I used to get up at 5 in the morning till I completed my college course in 1961, and at 4 till I was in the service of my Alma mater great premier public sector organization Life Insurance Corporation of India where I learnt the art of life and living and now post retirement I get up at 3 yet I am unable to complete my routine with peace!!!

Time and tide waits for none it is said; but tide waits for full moon to blossom to show its beauty in depth!”

Time goes on and on, on and on for eternity! Eternity to eternity! It looks February twenty fifth two thousand and fifteen was just yesterday- but it was 1766 days ago! ENVIUS THOUGHTS took birth on that great day with its FIRST POST “MY TRYST WITH LIC” and today on 1st December 2019, it is EIGHTEEN Hundredth post! Post for a TALE- “TALE OF A BLOGGER 36”! (36X50=1800)

A landmark achievement was crossing the overall views of TWO LAKS AND TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND on 26th November 2019!

It has always been a great matter of awe and delight, inspiration and wonder! I mean the astrological/astronomical knowledge of our learned saints and seers, yogis and predictors of the future. That is getting strengthened as days pass bye. Astrology is a great art and science – not superstitious beliefs of a few.

Planets govern the world and they move from house to house from time to time. That way October 30th was “GURU PEYARCHI DAY” that is Transit of GURU-Bruhaspati- from one house to another. That morning in the temple the priest was mentioning that the person having SWATHI star (I am a SWATHI starred person) may have to face minor problems! It took its own stride. One may not believe what I experienced in that very evening! I am a type of person rushing to help others asked or unasked, known or unknown, young or old! Lady from the third floor was going out and she had come to the road. Her son threw a bag at her request from their flat. In the normal course it should have fallen on the ground and she would have picked up and proceeded with her work. In my over enthusiasm to help her, I wanted to catch that bag as it was falling and in the process I hit against the iron gate and got hurt in my head, shoulders and back-thank God not very serious!!!I was writhing in pain for a few hours after applying some ointment!! Then I decided to visit a 1000 year old temple-guru kshethram- in walking distance from my flat- every Thurs day and I continue. It was 4th
a couple of days back!  Several thousands of years ago they calculated that the planet will transit on that day and predicted the possible effect on persons born in different stars!    That is why India, my holy Motherland is very great in all spheres on earth.

On 14th November-Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday being observed in deference to his wishes as Children’s day. We in our colony observed with great fun and respect- a lot of children enthusiastically participating displaying their talents in various activities.

Great MUSIC SEASON commences today in Chennai. Scintillating Music festivals many in each locality- attract lot of music lovers from the whole of India and many countries abroad! A month long season indeed is great for the participating musicians -young and old, men and women-and music lovers of all ages.Music is divine and divinity can be felt, seen and heard in Chennai through out this month.

I am always proud of my esteemed viewers. One Shri Shankar from Pondicherry is one of the regulars and he suggested the post like “November 29th-Sirappuli Nayanar IS 36* Day” in respect of other Tamil Saint poets Nayanmars 63 in number and it will be a big task. Anyhow I may start the series in a planned manner in due course. I am indeed grateful to him.

December first is today promising a great closing of the year for me! On
7th I am presiding over a Tamil Poets’ Meet, on 11th I am presenting my Tamil poem on Bharathiyar, on 13th I am presenting my Tamil Poem and getting an award, on 15th I am presenting my Tamil poem on Barathiyar, on 29th I am getting an award for my poem on Barathiyar. One English Poets Meet in Nellore for Flamingo Festival for which date is yet to be fixed.

Thus goes  my life told to my esteemed viewers through this TALE OF A BLOGGER 36. We shall meet as usual tomorrow and till then GOOD BYE!

UNIVERSE PISI

Universe
Not here, in this place
Unsteady
Nor stands back to back
In elliptical shape
In beautiful form
Beauty personified
Are the active objects
Bundle of objects
Groups of objects
Embracing each other
Playing with each other
Gallery of objects
Gallery of beauty!
Group of fast moving images
Parts, continuations
In density
In energy
In volume
In its weighty weight
In its softy softness!
Objects in the Cosmos
Their energy
Have ups and downs!
Though not having
Directions definite
They follow mathematical laws.
It searches for the search!
Galaxies adopt
Deliver
Makes wonders
Brings surprises
Actions
Excitements
Images
Pulses
Of the planets and their deputies
Derive the authority from the LIGHT
And rule and reign!
Throw the waste in the cosmos
Add to the garbage
And form families!

RAINY DAYS!

Image result for pictures for rainy season"

Prompted by the weekly prompt of Blogging Meet here is prompted poem:
RAINY DAYS have made grand arrival! Yes the great gift of Nature alias God!
PAINY DAYS are these to many-going to schools and offices and outside home
With umbrellas failing to protect from rains heavy, Rain coat
Out of its place from the cupboard helps walking or driving two wheelers!
Getting cold and fever as a result of getting drenched in rain-a pain!
Even after the RAIN stops, drizzles continue through TREE LEAVES and branches!
RAIN essential for the world as the Saint Poet of Tamilnadu says in his Magnum Opus THIRUKKURAL written years two thousand and three hundred ago!:
Chapter Two
GLORY OF RAIN
11.
On rain, rests the world
Sure for its prosperity
Treat rain –nectar bold! (11)

12.
It helps grow great food
Sans water no agriculture
Quenches thirsty world! (12)

13.
Water all in sea
Helps not life on earth so well
Rain water gives glee! (13)

14.
Rain sustains the world
Makes the fertile land yield more
Sans farmers can’t mould! (14)
15.
By absence, rain destroys
Life, living, people and the world
By care it creates! (15)
16.
If rain fails to grace
The earth with its compassion
No grass you can trace! (16)
17.
Ocean becomes dry
When the sky bears not the clouds
People made to cry! (17)
18.
Rain – gift of nature
Whenever denied to the world
Bleak – nobles’ future! (18)
19.
When powerful rain fails
Noble charity gets failed
Nobles’ penance falls! (19)
20.
Sans water no life
When the Lord of Rain conspires
Virtue faces knife! (20)
