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)

As any other writer, I write for my satisfaction. When they are found to be useful to the viewers through my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com, I am indeed delighted and am motivated to proceed further and further, farther and farther! One measurement of my viewers is obviously the overall number of views.  I do constantly think of how the Blog can be made more interesting.

I am a little sensitive to the daily number of this Blog’s view and overall as I feel it is the measure of viewers’ estimate of the quality of the Blog.  This is 36th TALE OF THE BLOGGER!

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!

திறம் பாட வந்த மறவன். புதிய
அறம் பாட வந்த அறிஞன், நாட்டிற்

TRANSLATION IN ENGLISH
For great Tamil that lifts the man
New dimension was added by Poet Bharathi

A chareeteer for beautiful Tamil
He is a honey bee of Tamil, father of Sindhu!
He is a sweet voiced cuckoo!A great Poetic Drum
to defeat the enemies of the Nation.
He is a poetic Moon who came to rid of long sleep!
The scented camphor in the garden of poetry.
He is the treasure of writings with the stream of imagination
A great captain of Poets
A poet who came ti sing of nobility
A medicine for the ills of castes
Religions cannot divide and put out
The light among the poets!

Mahakavi Barathiyar’s Death Day-11th September

Image result for Mahakavi Bharathiyar Death Anniversary 2018

Ninety Seven years ago this day fell an Institution
Great movement he was-the patriotic poet of the Nation
A poet par excellent, writer and speaker fell a victim
To a temple elephant whom he used to feed while in Madras!

From politics to religion, freedom to womens liberation
He wrote poetry and prose in thousands including education
Multi linguist he was, handled all languages with felicity
Poverty struck poet and politician of the days of yore!

After a near century, on all national occasions
His songs are sung- vibrant and young they are all
May be on the nation, Gods and religions, nature tall
His writings inspire the young and old, read and unread!

BHARATHI BIRTH DAY IS TODAY

Mahakavi Subramaniya Bharathi one of the three of my mentors from his heavenly abode was born on this day in 1882. Here is a tribute paid by Barathi’s ardent admirer BARATHI DHASAN under the title BARATHI ULLAM – Barathi’s Heart!

His original in Tamil and my translation in English form today’s Envius Thoughts.
IN TAMIL

பாரதி உள்ளம்

சாதி ஒழித்திடல் நன்று –நல்ல
தமிழ் வளர்த்தல்மற் றொன்று
பாரதியை நாடு மறந்தால்-மற்றப்
பாதி துலங்குவதில்லை.

சாதிப் பிணிப்பற்ற தோளே –நல்ல
தண்டமிழ் வாளினைத் தூக்கும்!

பன்னும் நம் பாரதியாரின் –நல்ல
பச்சை அன் புள்ளத்தி னின்று
நன்று பிறந்த இப் பேச்சு – நம்
நற்றமிழர்க் கெழில் மூச்சு!
செந்தமிழ் நாட்டினிற் பற்றும் – அதன்
சீருக்கு நல்ல தோர் தொண்டும்
நிந்தை இலாதவை அன்றோ! –எந்த
நேரமும் பாரதி நெஞ்சம்
கந்தையை எண்ணுவதில்லை – கையிற்
காசை நினைப்பதும் இல்லை.
செந்தமிழ் வாழிய! வாழி – நல்ல
செந்தமிழ் நாடென்று வாழ்ந்தார்.

IN English:
Barathi’s Heart
Good to get rid of castes –Good
To develop Tamil is the next.
If Barathi is forgotten –remaining
Half cannot prosper!

Shoulder sans the bondage of castes – heavy
Armoury can shoulder!
Caring our Barathi’s – sweet
Speech was born from his loving heart- our
Sound breathes of dear Tamils!

Love for our dear Tamil Land- for
Its prosperity our service
Blemishless indeed are they!- At
No time Barathi’s heart
Thought of his rags –nor
Cared about his hands empty of money.
“Long live great Tamil!! Live – great
Tamil land” –so he lived his life!

“MAHAKAVI” ENTERED HEAVEN ON 11th SEPTEMBER

Poetry indeed is the index of the greatness of a language
Poets of all hues are the invaluable wealth of the language
There are many known and unknown in all languages and countries
MANA KAVI cannot be many and rarest among the poetsi

In Tamilnadu MAHAKAVI refers to the great national
Patriotic Poet who inspired and instilled patriotism
In all the people through his immortal poems-in journey to freedom
Subramaniya Bharathiyar entered HEAVEN on that holy day!

Scholar in languages several, learned and the one who loved
The country more than his Mother-injecting love in all who lived!
We salute the one who died almost a century ago whose songs
Are sung even today on all occasions-songs immortal! Man throngs!

Hearty greetings from the Young Poets Club of India, Editor and Web Administrator of Young Poet.Org to all our young poets, senior poets, readers, contributors and well wishers of the journal from all over the literary world.We have pleasure to inform you of the release of the latest issue bringing you some of the best poems from the poets – young and senior. As we started the publication of YOUNG POET, as the Millennium gift to the young poets-by definition poets less than twenty five years of age, we were very particular that the journal provides a platform to the young poets only. Now that almost a decade and half has gone since the Club was founded and its official organ was published, many of those young poets of those days have gone beyond twenty five and of course new tribe of young poets have come in, we have a lot of requests that the condition regarding age must be revised and in deference to their wishes, our YOUNG POET is open to all and our team is conscious of the fact that poets of what ever age they are, all are quite young in their spirits and hearts.

We are sure the issue will be well received by the lovers of English poetry and they will encourage the poets to come out with their best of poetic talents-in content, theme and presentation.

With best wishes

N.V. Subbaraman
