He was just six at that time seventy two years ago
Partition of India worried him along with his father’s Oh!
He of course joined the celebrations next day happily
Enjoys that freedom his Motherland got very joyfully!

Later when he came across the Indo-Pakistan war he
Felt as bad as at the time of partition poor man was he!
Envius felt sad when in Cricket matches with us, they won
If not partitioned, team should have been formidable one!

Yes the person who feels sad and bad is none but thy friend
N. V. S who meets you all daily with his Envius Thoughts!
Let us pray and work towards perfect peace and harmony
Second largest viewers of this Blog after India is PAKISTAN!

A nice read is your post on International Day of Friendship!
Opinions differ, we’re told!
The friction that develops as a result does harm to the otherwise smooth- going relationship!
We lose the opportunity of finding mental solace in desperate occasions in a state of strained relationship!
The evil of inflated ego renders the atmosphere grim and tough to deal with!
And it’s the right mental make-up in action that avoids this situation and helps in keeping the bond created the hard way in tact!
The arm of friendship that extends to entertain and accommodate differences helps in easing the situation for the better!
If friendship as between two intimate individuals cannot be maintained without hiccups, what will be the fate of friendly ties between two neighbourhood countries that’s very much essential for perennial peace and economic co-operation leading to mutual development, not to speak of peace pacts across the globe?
“To love and be loved”, is the singular and best win-win option we’re fortunately credited with to shake even the mountains and come out victorious unharmed!
Happy International Day of Friendship!

Your post yesterday on International Tiger Day today is a nice read!
Tiger is our national animal and stands for magnificence, courage and ferocity!
The fact that wild animals like tigers depend on herbivores for their survival is a pointer to the restriction on grasslands being overgrazed, thus resulting in ecosystem being well maintained!
The fact that tiger population is dwindling by the day is a pointer to the loss of their habitat due to poaching for man’s material gains!
This is not to discount its gradual extinction due to climate conditions too!
The fact that India is home to the largest tiger-population places a higher responsibility on our part to conserve the species from extinction!

A nice post on Buddha/Guru Poornima Day!
Teachers are a great pride of our society, and this day we remember those selfless souls who are actively moulding the people through their wise teachings!
That’s what the great gurus like Vyasa, the author of great epic Mahabharata and Goutama Buddha the renouncer of all his worldly pleasures, did to impart values in life!
Of importance is the role of teachers to the students in equipping them with necessary guidelines that help to navigate through the challenging phases of life later!
Rightly they are an inspiration to future leaders in the making!
And it’s incumbent on us to revere and accept them as indispensable part of our life!

25/7/2018
A nice post on Subramania Siva Day!
The British atrocities were to the core, and our freedom fighters had to suffer a lot before we got our independence!
In the long list that targeted also included Subramania Siva who had to walk home because he was not allowed to travel in the train due to leprosy he was afflicted with while being a prisoner!
And the greatness of our leaders lies in their courage and determination in challenging the ways of the British who were out to scuttle the efforts of selfless souls in all possible ways!

Steadfastness marked every move of their mission called the freedom movement, and no stone remained unturned in their serious pursuit for the singular cause of the freedom-starved people of our nation!

Glory of saints nicely brought out!
Saints, including Thiruvalluvar, live to eternity the way their words of wisdom continue to influence us positively, transcending all barriers!
The impact they create on the society is powerful enough to shape it rightly and guide through all the challenges posed to it!
The influence with which the wisdom words come out of the heart and soul of the saints is enormous and forceful that they cannot go irrelevant at any point of time!
The truth that their wise sayings hit the nail on the head is total and beyond questionable on one pretext or the other!
The couplets by Thiruvalluvar are so crisp and to the point that interpretations by others fail to reflect to its exactitude!
Glory to the saints and their stellar contribution to the humanity!

A nice Online Interview as Sunday Story from you this week!
The inputs provided herein are highlights on your consistent literary activities especially through your famous blog, of course, apart from your books, original and translated, including!
Reference to Thirukkural is the crown that beautifies the story splendidly, for this great work of Thiruvalluvar has got universal application through its verses!
You’ve nicely brought out the importance of translation in bridging the gap reportedly created due to regionalism!
Youth power essentially of this era is determinant of what future is going to be like!
And literature of various nations, when translated in common language will provide the right setting in this respect!
You’ve shown how inspiration works better in one’s life journey, with the triumvirate Thiruvalluvar, Bharathiyar, and Mahatma Gandhi, accompanying and guiding your way of life and living!
And your call to the youngsters to read and read is a nice message worth broader sharing!
Wishing you a happy Sunday!

Burmese Martyrs Day – 19th July – a revelation of the historic incident to the readers!
We have anti-nationals everywhere to disrupt peace among the people!
The selfish motive of a few individuals makes humanity pay a heavy price, resulting in untold miseries to the legitimate rulers and the common citizens!
Sometimes motives may be just right, in that lies the responsibility of the people in power to address appropriately and provide the remedy needed!
Even then, the approach of the fighters for their cause needs to be cautious and peaceful, in the larger interest of all concerned!

Nice quotes by Mandela for refreshing us on his day!
Thoughts of great souls like those of Nelson Mandela are for the humanity to survive in an atmosphere of peace and brotherhood!
Leading life without losing dignity is a fundamental right of one and all!
Anyone who’s out to deny this to others can feel the pinch only when they encounter with such an eventuality in life!
Children to become responsible should be treated by the elders the way they should be, lest we have to repent later for not doing justice to the young minds!
Freedom air we must get to breathe, and in its absence, our tied hands will falter, and fail to better the lives!
His quote, ” It always seem impossible until it’s done “, can drive everyone of us to give in our best in whatever we attempt at, and to succeed in the end!
And his call to ‘ brave ‘ fear and act courageously will provide the force required to attain the set goals!
A happy day to remember his nice ideas for betterment of society!

It’s great of your efforts behind your THOUGHTS reaching the view-score of 157000 yesterday!
CONGRATULATIONS
12/7/2018.
Voice of Valluvar- a nice come – back through your ENVIUS THOUGHTS!
We’re just instruments in the hands of God, and what we’re doing is just execution of HIS commandments, exactly the way he directs!
We cannot transgress the path shown by HIM!
Rather we are mesmerized into doing as dictated by HIM – however hard we may try, it’s not within our reach to change course- it’s just like an involuntary task!
HE is our true companion throughout our journey on this earth, and let us heartily welcome what’s dealt with by HIM!
Learn to accept and lead life peacefully!
10/7/2018.
Yet another beautiful poem by Tagore, followed by your nice comments and translation!
The doors of the Almighty are ever open to all!
Rather we’re unwilling and hesitant to let HIS compassion fall on us!
Closed are our ears that never let us hear the merciful words of the Lord, chanting nonstop for the humanity!
Closed are our eyes that never perceive and imagine the benevolence that’s reserved in HIM for our benefit!
Our feelings and emotions are numb as not to feel the the God’s real concern for all of HIS creations on Earth!
Let us all wake up from the ‘ pretending ‘ stupor, and accept the helping hand of the Almighty, for our own sake!
9/7/2018
What a nice poem from Gitanjali by Tagore, and your views and translation!
Time and tide wait for none, and we must do right what we must, and at the opportune time, not to worry later!
What’s ordained is bound to happen irrespective of what we imagined or liked!
For, crying over spilt milk is of no avail!
Our responsibility is to give our best in whatever we do, and needless it’s to entertain anxiety or curiosity as to the results that follow!
Nature’s way is unique, and our wisdom lies in dancing appropriately to its set tunes, with sufficient care not to deviating to satisfy our whims and fancies!
Life’s a combination of good and bad, and we must adapt to the situations with the hope that everything will pass to make us feel ever at ease!
After darkness comes light, it’s for sure, and what’s expected of us is our patience which alone can provide the driving force to move ahead with total confidence!
This we must continue till we inevitably become one like the ‘faded faulty flower’, so that our purpose of life will get served to the commandment of NATURE, that’s nothing but the ALMIGHTY GOD , residing with us!

A nice Sunday Story!
A nice press coverage of your Envius Thoughts!
Appreciation through the print media – seen in black and white – is indeed an inspiration for the best to follow!
And you’ll justify it by proving your mettle as is your wont – no doubt about it!
And what else can be more encouraging than such reports reaching tens of thousands of readers at their doorsteps!
Arise and achieve!

A nice post on American Independence Day
( July 4th )!
America, a pioneer among the democracies in the world!
Like us, America too came out of the clutches of the British Colony, and now breathing an air of freedom!
And showing the world the positive occurences born out of independence!
The unfettered freedom defeats the purpose of earning independence from the autocratic power for the benefit of the Motherland, for too much of anything is a curse!
There’s an increased amount of responsibility to exhibit by a free nation and educate their citizens on the value and limitations of democracy!
America is welcoming one and all wholeheartedly to its fold, and through facilitating fulfilment of their dreams, also get their nation’s agendas met!
One should keep in mind the effectiveness of doing something in an atmosphere of
non-intervention from external sources!
And it’s also incumbent on them not to cross the limits, and exert undue influence on others to the extent freedom is abhorred!
Let there be no country and no people in the midst of Slavery, and peace and prosperity be around for the enjoyment of all!
6/7/2018.
Stay positive and expect the results to follow to your liking!
2/7/2018.
Nice of your post on Canada day!
Each country in this world is unique in their own way, and I join with everyone in wishing a happy Canada Day to each one of those living there!
With more people relocating from their own places to countries many, culture of one country is spreading to other nations, with local culture allowed to be remaining in tact at the same time!
This broad-mindedness is at the centre of the economic development of the countries concerned, and also the mutual interaction between nationals of various countries that make everyone at ease in an alien setting!
1/7/2018.
Nice comments from Mr. Jagan on your nice blog that’s making rounds around the globe with increasing viewership by the day!
As your endnote of this Sunday Story suggests, the stamp of his scholarship is quite evidrnt in all of his valuable views!
My hearty appreciation to Mr. Jagan!

CONGRATS.

A nice post on Insurance Awareness Day!
Our lives are invaluable, and the monetary value we attach may not justify it!
Yet, considering the ‘ uncertainty factor ‘ that goes with a human life, we cannot brush it aside, but in stead, take care to insure it when we’re in perfect health, for our request for insurance will not be considered when our health fails!
This is where the question of ‘awareness’ arises, and more the awareness, the better it’s for us to keep our lives sufficiently insured to take care of the financial needs of dependents in our absence!
It may take some time to reconcile to the sudden loss of the breadwinner of a family, but afterwards everything will have to go as usual, and the wheel of life has to move on as before for the rest of the family members!
This requies financial support that’s well taken care of by INSURANCE!
Hence before it becomes too late, it’s prudent for the eligible ones to go in for sufficient insurance and remain peaceful in the remaining years with the thought of having successfully ensured the comforts of the family unit!
23/6/2018
What a nice post on United Nations Public Service Day!
Public Service is a great pillar on which thrives the entire gamut of administration that’s at the back of the welfare of the citizens of the world nations!
Selfless attitude is an integral aspect of public service, playing dominant role in appropriately serving the people’s needs to their satisfaction!
Not allowing corruption to raise its ugly head ensures timely service to the intended, and the recipient goes with a happy mind, appreciating the work done by the people in charge of management of the affairs of a department concerned!
For, appreciation does the true magic of providing value-added service to the approaching customers in future!
It’s the true reward and motivation an employee gets in the course of his employment /profession to further improve upon his performance!
The higher-ups patting the workers then and there for the nice work done by them invariably make for an efficient and smooth administration!
Happy Public Service Day to all those involved in serving the humanity in one way or the other!

23/6/2018
A peep into the freedom journey then and there can strenthen our will not to misuse the liberal thoughts against the interest of the nation!
21/6/2018
Nice to read your post on International Yoga Day!
We are home to yoga, and it’s a perfect gift to the world!
It’s a much -talked about subject, and to be aware of its benefits, physical and mental, and practicing it regularly will yield the favourable results!
Religious colouring being applied, of late, to yoga seems to be a deterrent for all others to practice it!
Different forms of yoga in vogue cater to the specific needs of the practitioners!
As with other habits we are getting accustomed to, yoga too will become our routine, once we start doing it!
20/6/2018.
Your post on World Productivity Day is a good read!
Humankind is capable of fantastic performance!
We’re endowed with various talents, and go on increasing the skill-sets necessary to apply in life and work as well!
This comes in handy to achieve maximum productivity!
But the question is whether we’re putting them to use in full!
Society’s needs are increasing by the day, and in the course of our profession/employment, we need not relate productivity with monetary value we receive, but in stead, we should make it a practice to give our best, and offer something extra towards the welfare of the nation, in all possible ways!
This way our productivity goes up that helps in maximising the economic development of the country/world!
18/6/2018.
A Nice post on International Panic Day!
Life today is full of stress and strain!
Problems are many that we keep the panic button ever on!
But we should never allow this to continue all the time, and find alternatives to ease the situation by refreshing ourselves by going out quite often!
Lest we’ll get immersed in monotony and tension, affecting the quality of life!
Say no to panic and peace be ours all the time!
16/6/2018.
Your post All Because of Allah on the day of Ramzan is a nice read!
Culmination of a month-long fasting today marks the celebration of Ramzan festival by all the Muslims!
It’s an occasion to seek the pardon of the Allah for the wrongs commited by them!
It’s love that spreads peace and harmony around, and no religion seeks to embrace feelings of hatred among those following the teachings of other religions!
Happy Ramzan Day to the Muslim brethren!
15/6/2018.
A nice post on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day!
Ageing population is on the rise, and continues to be a problem across the globe!
It becomes a burden on the family and society as well, the cause being an indifferent attitude of people towards this segment of the population!
It’s the lack of consideration for the aged who were very much active and useful to society in more ways than one during their prime age, that’s responsible for their unfortunate neglect!
Not only that, they are abused physically, emotionally, and financially by those who are very much close to them!
Old age is rather seen as a commitment by the society, forgetting that one day everyone is going to enter that vulnerable age, and remain dependent on their close relatives for their survival!
It’s for the care – givers in charge of the aged not to neglect their duty towards them, and diligently take care of their needs, and ensure their satisfaction and happiness in the evening of their life!
Only a proper awareness of the need to keep them in good spirits that can ensure a healthy society!

14/6/2018.
Your post on World Blood Donors Day is a nice read!
Yes, blood donation helps in saving the lives of many who are suffering from blood loss due to fatal accidents, and physical ailments as well!
It’s a honour on the blood donors who are life-givers to the needy!
It’s harmless for the healthy donors to make available their blood to others once in every six months!
It’s a valuable gift to the recipient in the form of new lease of life!
It’s an opportunity for the donor to be a responsible citizen, and render service to the humanity!
A life lost is lost forever, but the blood donated is sufficiently compensated with new blood!
The donor and the recipient get themselves well connected through this grand process, no matter they are separated by, say, the distance!
Let the eligible come forward on their own, and be of use to the people in a special way!

14/6/2018.
A nice poem from Tagore!
There will be –
Lull after storm,
Happiness after sadness,
Hope after failure,
Union after separation,
Strength after desperation,
Briskness after idleness,
Peace after confusion,
Determination after wavering,
Positivism after negativism,
Riches after poverty,
Health after illness, and so on……..
Life is thus a combination of ups and downs, and we need to learn to remain neutral to occurrences we are encountered with!
With the grace of Lord, and our will to extricate ourselves from the clutches that restrain routine activities, our shift to peace and happiness is assured!
12/6/2018.
Nice to listen to the poetic lines of Tagore’s Gitanjali and your thoughts!
Everyone coming in to this world experiences good and bad!
The incidents that occur in life contribute to our feelings good bad!
Many a time what’s happening on its own inside of us determines our moods good and bad!
Unexplained is the cause of shifting mental journey leaving one hilarious sometimes, and dejected oftentimes!
In the God’s scheme, everything is predetermined!
What’s keeping us dark about this fact is the crucial aspect that generates anxiety and suspence, leaving us wondering what next in line is going to be encountered with!
What’s expected of us is our strength to be responsible in performing the duties without setting our mind on the end result!
Strength and grace must flow naturally from the courteous Almighty on us the mortals to execute the purposes for which we have been allowed this valuable birth!
For, we’re just the tools in the hands of the Lord to execute HIS will meticulously!

9/6/2018.
A nice post on National Donald Duck Day!
Cartoon, a nice tool to express things subtly, and the Donald Duck is one of the characters with the characteristic comic element being presented to the various tastes of young and old alike!
There’s nothing like comedy that drives the monotony away, refreshing the mind!
This fast-faced world has produced in its wake what’s frequently referred to as stress that contributes to many of the physical ailments humanity suffer from!
A break now and then from this avoidable situation is the remedy we are fortunately blessed with!
The choice is ours to make use of this option of seeking the comic players like Donald Duck and Micky Mouse to make us lively and pleasant!
5/6/2018.
Your post on World Environment Day is informative and timely!
A great honour indeed it’s for India to host this year’s World Environment Day today!
Yes, no denying, with it goes our commitment to the issue, and our constructive action in fixing the problems connected with it!
And the theme, ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’, is apt for the reason that nowadays plastic has its presence in anything and everything we use!
The amount of waste being dumped in the ocean is a pointer to the enormity of the problem we face, and a clear direction to each one of us to be cautious about the consequences we must experience, and remain sensitive to the menace!
Let us remind ourselves that the quality of our life is directly proportional to the care and attention we bestow to keep our environment neat and tidy!
Let us not ourselves be the cause of our own destruction!
4/6/2018
A nice post on Monday Day!
There may never be one without an experience of what’s called ‘ morning blues ‘, at one time or the other!
It’s about the need to get up from the otherwise a deep slumber with the characteristic reluctance, and face the day ahead!
‘ Monday blues ‘ is similar to this feeling of sadness that envelops one with the mere thought of starting the first day of the week, leave alone accomplishing it to our heart’s content!
If we delve deep into the concept, we will realize the folly of this ‘perception’, and go ahead with energy and enthusiasm to successfully execute the tasks planned!
A positive mental preparedness will take care of this negative influence, and will not only make our day a significant one, but also that of others around us!
A well thought – out plan the day before will make this day eventful!
For the retired people, as you mentioned, there’s no question of this ‘dreadful feeling’, as everyone of the 365/366 days is a SUNDAY with more time to stand and stare!

1/6/2018.
Only a passionate spirit can make one indulge in the monumental works of Shakespeare!
Many a time I would think on these lines- but then the spirit lacks unfortunately!
Am I alone im this venture?
31/5/2018.
Awareness created through your nice post on World No Tobacco Day today!
It’s good that heart disease is focussed this year to educate the tobacco users!
Reasons may be many for the ailments connected with heart, but the part being played by tobacco in its various forms cannot be overlooked, and hence the need for propagating the negative effects that go with it!
It’s not that they are not aware of its consequences, but that they find it difficult to give the practice a go-by due to their addiction over a period of time!
A mental preparation on their part can make them slowly drift from the habit, and save themselves from worst results in future!
The smokers must understand the fact of passive smokers being put in more trouble due to their unmindful act, and save the society too in the process!
Awareness is better directed at the people who get themselves addicted to this habit quite recently, for it’s easy to make them alive to the seriousness, compared to those on a long
‘ innings!’

Thus comes this SUNDAY STORY to a conclusion! We shall meet tomorrow-till then GOOD BYE!

Jagan On Envius Thoughts Part IV/ UWA AWARD.

Out of more than 1,49,000 views from more than a couple of hundreds of countries of ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com many are by Shri N. Jaganathan who is in charge of PR and Publicity wing of my beloved organization SEVALAYA about which I have posted a poem on 3rd August 2016 and a Sunday story under the title TEMPLE OF SERVICE (SEVALAYA) on 7th August 2016 in this Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS.
Mr. Jagannathan has become so fond of ENVIUS THOUGHTS that he not only regularly views them but also makes his comments often. I am sure they are quite interesting and hence they form this week’s SUNDAY story; I am confident that you will enjoy them.
Part III was posted on 1st July covering his views up to 29/6/2018.
This Part IV has his views up to 3/8/18.

3/8/18.

There is no gainsaying that Nagalanad is another great state in our country, for which we should contribue to be proud of. The Millet State of North east is known for several credits. The festivals you have mentioned I have come to know just now, I concede. I repeat that India is a land of multiple culture. We derive legitimate pride to be sons of this great soil.

2/8/18
This universal truth has to be understood by all mothers in the world. Our respectable mothers should be firm on feeding their lovable babies in the larger interest of their (children’s) life long health. I think, awareness and understanding are disseminating fast. It is a good sign. But none should skip this. That way your to-day’s blog is timely and thought provoking.
1/8/18
Dear Sir, Are you conveying that today is your birth anniversary. On this great day, we pray for your long, healthy life. We also pray Him to grant you all peace, plenty and prosperity in copious measure.

, I only supplement. Friendship at all ages, at all levels, is necessary. Friendship between nations had and has been yielding results mutually, we know. Understanding each other, most importantly, eschew hatred, eschew enmity are the needs.
26/7/18.
Nation salutes the great men who had sacrificed and fought the war valiantly with determination. It our soldiers brought great honor to the nation. Yes, all of us salute!

24/7/18.
Yes, we have to recall the great patriot’s contributions in our battle for freedom. His sacrifice, suffering, humiliations he underwent, his greater involvement and attachments to his contemporary freedom fighters, Bharathi, VOC, and many more, are to be remembered and told to the generations. Papparapatti, in Dharmapuri district, is a holy place.
21/7/18.
Yes, our great teacher-saint Tivuvalluvar has dealt all matters concerning the world matters. All his couplets carry messages to the entire world. Rain is one such important caption. How beautifully he has explained! If he is alive today he would have praised your excellent interpretation in English and again in a couplet! Thank you Sir!
When we think of rain, I am reminded that that Spanish people are delighted on how rain god favours their land. They say with pride, incidentally, to explain pronunciation, they say “rain in spain mainly falls on the plain”
16/7/18.
A true patriot, uncompromising nationalist, sacrificed during freedom struggle and greatly contributed in post-independent India. A striking example and a an inspiration to all particularly politicians of all times.
12/7/18.
Maxim of great Thirukkural, numbering 1330, divided into several chapters and of our dharrma, condensed and contained the philosophies and way of life in couplets. They are Tamil form of our Vedas and scriptures as well. Kudos to your great initiative of magnificent task
11/7/18.
Explosion of population will add to the problems like scarcity, inadequate situation of essentials world over.Malthusian theory in its final analysis declare if preventive steps are not taken natural laws. such as war, famine, disease, etc will take their own courses to contain and control the explosion of population. So the world should wake up.
9/7/18.
Tagore a great poet of the time. He loved nature and lived with nature. More than his poem, I have enjoyed beautiful translation, which conveys meaning, without the meaning gets suffered. Lovers of Tamil will enjoy for the contents as well.
4/7/18.
US the great nation to be congratulated on this day. This is the nation embraces people from all over the world sans difference. A truly secular State with exemplary stability with Federal structure.
2/7/18.
Canada has a special place in the minds of the people across globe for several reasons. Geographically proximate to US has its prestige of Nayagara, mainly on its side. The uniqueness of Canada, it attracts people from all over the world, sans difference. It accommodates. Sir, thanks for your write up on Canada.

Yes, camera is only an irreplaceable also an indispensable one in the world of communication and its industry at large. It a great gift of Science given by Eastman!

It is always wise to write something as we please. It is WISER to know how the viewers view the content and method of presentation. Volumes and volumes we write but no one to read! Writing has no meaning. One way of assessing how our writings are taken by the public is to get their positive feedback and in a case like this Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS by the number of VIEWS the post enjoys!
From this angle I thank Goddess of Learning – SARASWATHY- for giving me ideas and knowledge sufficient to maintain the blog that has earned me a place of honor in the ASIA-PACIFIC BOOK OF RECORDS and the increasing number of views of the readers. On an average each day of my Blog earns an average of 125 views-which by all means according to Bloggers is quite fair and great!
It is also a great matter of honor and satisfaction that the total views have crossed One Lakh and Sixty One Thousand as of now. There are a few who after seeing the Blog Post send their feedback in their own lovely language which I consolidate and publish in the Blog as a Sunday story. The following is my reply to one of my new admirers by name Kumar who suggested that I may look for Indin followers!
There are several Indian viewers, known, unknown, half known who wait for the daily post and send reviews. I consolidate and post as Sunday Stories. They are indeed elated to find their views in the Blog! 1)Viewer’s View-OKR SIVANGANAM from Erode Perundurai- 17 parts published. 2) Prasad on Envius thoughts -from Visakapatnam 5 parts. 3) Ramamurthi on Envius Thoghts from Bangalore 5 parts. 4) Visitor’s Views on Envius Thoughts-Rajiv Jha from Bilaspur 5 Parts. 5) Vasudevan on Envius Thoughts 4 Parts. -from Srirangam. 6) Jagannathan on Envius Thoughts 3 Parts. -from Chennai. 7) ARK on Envius Thoughts 3 Parts- from Chennai 8) A Journalist View on Envius Thoughts 2 Parts.- one Muthu aiyer from Hyderabad. . 9)Ravindranath on Envius Thoughts Part 1 -from Hyderabad. 10) Latha on Envius Thoughts Part 1 English Professor from Ernakulam. 11) LICsian on Envius Thoughts 1 part- T Chandra Sekara Reddy from Hyderabad. 12) Uthayamurthy on Envius Thoughts Part 1 -from Bangalore. 13) Press on Envius Thoughts 1 part. 14) WordPress on Envius Thoughts 1 part thus you will observe that today’s is the first one from an American and all the above are Indian fans!

TALE OF A BLOGGER 26

 

 

“Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind. …
It’s pretty scary to know how quickly time flies. …
It’s crazy how fast time flies and how things progress. …
Time flies really quickly. …
Time flies. …
Time flies never to be recalled. …
Time flies like an arrow – but fruit flies like a banana. …
Time flies so quick.”

Yes, my esteemed viewers, this exactly is my experience on the “flying time” and a few of the quotes on the subject!
It looks as if my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com was just launched today-but it is 1300th day prompting me to write this Sunday story with the above caption- TALE OF A BLOGGER 26! Yes 26X50= 1300!
Today it is 1247th day of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and 1300th post(a land mark day in the life of the Blog) necessitating the TALE OF A BLOGGER in tune with the tradition of the Blog- A TALE FOR EVERY FIFTY POSTS as a Sunday Story!
!
Normally this Blogger makes it a point to give a longer story instead of a twelve line poem on Sundays when the viewers will be more at leisure and can comfortably read a longer write. This week it is 1300th post falling on an usual Sunday
It is extremely gratifying that with the grace of the Almighty GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY, WORD PRESS and my esteemed viewers the Blog has traveled to its 1300th post happily and uninterruptedly since its launch on 25th February 2015.
Though I have already shared a happy news about your favorite Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com getting a place in the Asia Pacific Book of Record.
It is indeed a matter of joy with a legitimate pride that the Blog entered the ASIA-PACIFIC BOOK OF RECORDS on 20th April 2018 and the Certificate issued by the GLOBAL RESEARCH AND RECORD FOUNDATION reads as under:

Kindly continue.

AN ONLINE INTERVIEW!

Probably some of my esteemed readers of my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS would have read this interview elsewhere. In this Blog first time for your kind view and review! In the background of my intention to publish as much TirukkuraL in this Blog -already TWO chapters have been published and the rest to follow-this will be of some good inputs to my viewers all over the globe:

“Mr. N V Subbaraman from Tamilnadu is a bilingual poet, a Versatile Blogger, writer, scholar, trainer and communicator with thirty seven books to his credit including 16 translated works in prose and verse. Following are his thoughts on some of the questions we asked him.

1.Tell us something about yourself?

I am N V Subbaraman, was born on July 31st 1941 in Tamilnadu. My mother tongue is Telugu. Having been born, brought up, educated and employed for long and living in Tamilnadu I know Tamil well in addition to my mother tongue, English, Hindi and Sanskrit to an extent. I am a graduate in Mathematics and a Fellow in Insurance. I served the premier Public Sector Undertaking Life Insurance Corporation of India for four decades, served as a part of my Central office, in the States of Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan. I retired in 2001 as Deputy Zonal Manager and post retirement served as a Director in an HR Training Organization and as a Managing Director of a company.

Since the age of seventy, I have given up all my gainful employment and concentrating on literary activities.

I am a bilingual poet in Tamil and English. I am a communicator, writer, speaker, and a trainer. I am a small time writer and I have thirty seven published books to my credit. I am a translator from English to Tamil and vice versa. Totally I have to my credit translated works numbering 16 in prose and verse.

I am a Blogger-keeping ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com where I post an English poem original or translated every day from Monday to Saturday and a Sunday story right from 28/2/2015 till this day without a single break; my 545 posts in 508 days have a total VIEW Score of more than 49000 from 198 countries.

I am a Haikuist and I have written more than 1000 Haiku poems strictly in 5-7-5 pattern, with first and third line rhyming. I have ten awards for my literary activities including the latest to be awarded on 16th September UWA ADMIRABLE ACHIEVER AWARD 2016/17 by the United Writers Association of India “an Association formed to kindle the light of love and compassion among all nations and whenever possible, in areas of conflict, the Association will act as counseling body for equalizing the flow of knowledge, for reducing aggression and of generating attitudes of fraternization, and an Association of Truth to lend meaning to the pursuit of excellence with a view to forging an endless alliance and a more perfect Union among the people of the Earth”.

I am a simpleton, out and out a humanist and a Universalist keeping strictly to certain principle of life. I wrote long back and I hold to that.
I know no God
no religion
no philosophy!

I know no Bible
no Quran
no Dhammapada
no Mahabharatha
no Ramayana!

I follow and practice
“Help ever, hurt never
Love all, Serve all
Be kind, be friendly!”
That is all what I know on earth and
That is all what I need to practice!

I am greatly attached to Saint Tamil Poet Thiruvalluvar, Mahatma Gandhi and Tamil national poet Mahakavi Subramaniya Bharathi. I use to say that whenever I leave my flat all these three take me by their hands and bring me back home safely.

2.What is the essence of Thirukkural in your opinion?
In one of his poems singing in praise of Tamilnadu, national poet Mahakavi Subramaniya Bharathiyar wrote:
வள்ளூவன் தன்னைஉலகினுக்கே தந்து
வான்புகழ் கொண்ட தமிழ்நாடு.
“VaLLuvan thannai ulaginukkae thandhu vaan pugazh koNda Thamilnadu”
In English
“Giving Valluvan to the world, Tamilnadu got the sky high fame”
THIRUVALLUVAR indeed is one of the greatest thinkers the world has witnessed. Born more than 2300 years ago in the famous city of Chennai in India, he through his magnum opus ‘Thirukkural’ has given the art and science of life and living.

When the values propounded are practiced truthfully, it will surely bring the unseen heaven to this very earth. Hardly there is any subject in the world that has not been dealt with by Thiruvalluvar and that in fact has made this work universally accepted as common scripture of eternal truths. This is probably the only work that has been translated into more than ninety languages of the world, of course, excepting Bible and Quran, which are the valued possession of the respective religions. That indicates the universality of the great work. Monumental contribution and rarest gift of Tamilnadu to India and the world are versatile Tamil Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar and his marvelous work Thirukkural!

To me Thirukkural dictum is not theoretical or bookish. A serious practitioner whether he is a layman, an employee Manager to the last grade servant, an agriculturist, medical man, or in Government from the ruler to the ruled, or in any walk of life can put into practice and the society will be peaceful, prosperous and noble. In fact Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and Ramalinga adigaLaar—a Tamil reformer and many others have practiced VALLUVAM-dictates of Thiruvalluvar and his Thirukkural- .all given in 133 parts of 10 couplets each totaling 1330 couplets of seven seers each.

3.Different Indian languages have literary works of great cultural and artistic value but regionalism often comes in the way of connecting people with these works. What is the way to bridge this gap in your opinion?

Yes, India is a vast and diverse country with its rich heritage, culture, religions, languages, literature, scholars, writers, poets and so on. They are indeed great treasures beyond values for the present and posterity.

In a multi lingual society and the states on linguistic basis, regionalism of course takes its own toll on many aspects and one important impact is on the literary works of great cultural and artistic value. Due to political and other reasons there is a vast gap in connecting the people. Rightly you have diagnosed the cause for the gap and that is narrow regionalism leading to parochialism. It should therefore, be the foremost duty of the broad and nationalistic minded patriots to create opportunities for the people of religions and regions, languages and cultures to move freely and absorb the greatness from others.

Translation of the rich literary works of each language into other languages of India and English is a sure way of bridging the gap.

Emphasizing on the importance of TRANSLATION in bridging the gap great National Poet Subrahmanya Bharathiyar says:

தேமதுரத் தமிழோசை உலகமெலாம்
பரவும்வகை செய்தல் வேண்டும்.
பிறநாட்டு நல்லறிஞர் சாத்திரங்கள்
தமிழ்மொழியிற் பெயர்த்தல் வேண்டும்
திறமான புலமையெனில் வெளிநாட்டோர்
அதைவணக்கம் செய்தல் வேண்டும்.
Thaemadhurath thamizoasai ulagamelaam
Paravum vagai seythal vaeNdum
Piranaattu nallaringar saaththirangkaL
Thamizmoziyir peyarththal vaeNdum
Thiramaana pulamaiyenil veLinaattoar
Atdhai vaNakkam seythal vaeNtum.

In English

Tamil’s mellifluous sounds
Must reach the world’s utmost bounds.
Translation too we must produce
From foreign classics for our use.
Our genuine greatness and skills and wisdom
The world will recognize and salute hands down.

But then translation is a fine art and science; competent persons for translation from one language to other language/s are to be spotted, sufficient recognition given and motivated to pursue the art of translation. Translation is not simply finding the equivalent words. It is indeed trans- creation; the translator must get into the heart and soul of the original creator and come out with his version presenting the mind of the creator.

It has to be done through print and electronic media. From that angle, I cannot but commend the efforts of Indian Periodical. Educational Institutions should make it a point and policy to prescribe the translated literature in the curriculum at all levels. As extracurricular studies, parents, social service organizations and schools must popularize translated arts and literature. It may not be too much to suggest literary competitions may be floated at many levels on translated literary pieces for all ages, educational standards, rural, urban groups and so on as the competitions have the motivating ability.

4. How should young generation be motivated towards preserving the cultural heritage like Thirukkural?

Your question on targeting the younger generation is indeed commendable. This is the age of youth and the future of the country’s culture and civilization, principles and practices, peace and harmony very much depend on the way our younger generation is brought up. While several distractions and disturbances are there for them, concerted efforts must be made, by all concerned with the future, to divert the focus of the youth towards preserving the cultural and literary heritage of the great works like THIRUKKURAL. Right from the elementary stage through curricular and extracurricular activities the text, meaning and the value of the teachings of Valluvar are to be prescribed. It has to be naturally in the languages known and appreciated by them for which making available the TIRUKKURAL in all Indian languages is a sine- qua-non. It is to be coordinated at the school/university, state and central level by competent teams.

The parents and elders should set an example and role models to the youngsters by practicing the principles of life and living propounded by Thiruvalluvar in his magnum opus Thirukkural. Once the young minds absorb from their studies and observe the elder’s following in their day to day life, they will also fall in the groove and what is imbibed at the cradle will stand till the grave.

5.What sort of encouragement do central and state governments provide in promoting literature?

Of course, they have their own methods and manner of providing encouragement in promoting literature; but it leaves much to be desired. Of course priority treatment is given to education and not to the man making literary education! Unlike the subjects like Mathematics and Science, Engineering and medicine, literature in any language enhances the vision and catholicity, broad mindedness and nobility of the learners.

Hence, the governments must give a priority to the translation activity of the ministry of culture and education and instill the importance of translated works, methodical study at all levels to ensure that regionalism stands not in the way of literary progress in the whole nation. In particular in Tamilnadu lot of emphasis is made on studying the THIRUKKURAL couplets and the schools right from the age of four make the kids read and recite this great work of Thiruvalluvar.

Monetary incentives have their own attraction with the human beings and rightly the Tamilnadu Government recognizes the students from primary level to University level, who learn, by heart and recite the entire 1330 couplets in front of competent team of Thiruvalluvam specialists and award Rs.10000 each. It is indeed a matter of immense satisfaction and pride that thousands of boys and girls from Tamilnadu have been awarded.

Individual specialists in Tirukkural contribute in their own way for the propagation of the Saint Poet’s ideas and views among the children and elders. One such expert by name ELLAPPAN from the famous holy place of Kanchipuram in Tamilnadu, a dhashavadhani, has trained many children and out of them more than hundred boys and girls have received the Rs.10000 award from the Government.

One more individual Mr. Aadhilingam, founder president of “ULAGAP PODHUMARAI THIRUKKURAL SANGAM” is running THIRUKKURAL SCHOOLS in different parts of Chennai, teaches Thirukkural, awards monetary incentives up to Rs 5000 to the school children for attainment of proficiency in Tirukkural in 10 different levels. How I wish the students from Andhra Pradesh to Uttar Pradesh prepare themselves and receive the Tamilnadu government and other awards in large numbers!

6. Your message for our readers?

Message to readers! Yes, we have to. At a time when the sea changes are taking place in the society, in the minds and attitudes of readers and writers, concerted efforts are called for to make the youth read, read and read, understand, appreciate, absorb the contents and crux of the noble literature from not only their own language but from other languages translated well by the competent authorities. Honest efforts must be made to read well all that is worth reading and follow in day to day life that they got out of reading.

Just as physical exercises tone up the body and health, reading tones up the intellect. They must also make it a point to read the journals and magazines on line or off line providing translated matters as is being efficiently done by Indian Periodical. My best wishes and prayers are to all the readers. Thank you, very much to you for having provided me a golden opportunity to interact with you and through you, your esteemed readers. .

I am sure this Sunday Story will be found quite interesting. Kindly respond.
We shall meet tomorrow as usual.
