In commemoration, here is a special post:
‘ENVIUS THOUGHTS’ SCORE “1,11,111”!

Passionate I am with numbers and views powerful
Gone mad with observing the number of views each hour
Recording the same in a diary- great honour!
In the history of Envius Thoughts holy day

Look at 1,11,111 from countries two hundred
And ten and more- all by the grace of Goddess Saraswathi!
THOUSANDTH POST THOUSANDTH POST THOUSAND POST Thousandth Post
It is with deepest reverence to the God Almighty –GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY- and unbounded pleasure and pride, joy and happiness that today I am presenting my “TALE OF A BLOGGER PART TWENTY” as this week’s Sunday Story in ENVIUS THOUGHTS as this is my THOUSANDTH POST (1000th) on the 924th day in my life as a Blogger.
At this point I recollect my Blogger’s Prayer:
Oh! My Lord, Omniscient-Omnipotent God!
In Thy million creations “blog” gets Thy nod!
Let me be a blogger and sure not a blaggard
Pen is mightier than sword not to go wayward!
Freedom of expression never to be misused
Blogger’s honest followers not to be mislead
I write what I want and know- none to edit sure
No censor; my blogging must be noble and pure!
Matters in millions; subjects are aplenty
Great knowledge and nice language are in my kitty
To be used with sense of responsibility
Goddess of knowledge! Bless me with ability!
Bless me with that control, – thoughts not to run riots
Thoughts meant to make noble, inspire and elevate
The society of which I am part and parcel
May my Blog bring peace, joy, food for thought a morsel!
Yes, that indeed is my prayer as a blogger; I am going with my blog work in a very truthful manner.
God has been very, very kind and compassionate that till this 924th day, without missing EVEN A SINGLE DAY I have been able to make a post daily and many of my followers, I learn through their feedback over phone and mail, that they look for my post in the early morning and one of them stated that he has become an addict to the ENVIUS THOUGHTS!
Blog’s popularity is seen through the number of views –the statistics provided by the great WORDPRESS indeed is an adequate proof!
Since Tale 19 was posted on 20th August, the progressive 1000s are shared below:
20/8/2017 884th day- 950th post- 1, 03,000

We write, write and write for our own satisfaction- not expecting anything from readers except their feedback. Feedback I believe is a strong tonic for the writer- whether it is adverse criticism in the normally accepted sense or inspiring compliments.
By HIS/HER grace I have been getting regular feedback/comments/responses/reviews for each and every one of my posts- all these 1000! I feel inspired that I consolidate the same and publish as Sunday stories in the Blog.

Local neighborhood news papers like Anna Nagar Times and Mogappair Times play their own noble role in encouraging my Blog work periodically publishing land marks in the Blog’s pleasant journey.
Though I am a proud Indian first and Hindu second, I am a Universalist.
My avowed thought in this regard oft quoted is:
I know no God
I know no Bible
I follow and practice
Help ever, hurt never
Love all, Serve all
Be kind, be friendly!
That is all what I know and
That is all I need to practice!
In that way I post in ENVIUS THOUGHTS on every possible occasion on all religions.In fact one of our viewers from Hyderabad Poet Madam Elizabeth Monaliza has expressed her positive observation on this aspect.
AFTER THOUSAND WHAT!
This is the million dollar question looming very large over me. I could manage my Blog effectively according to my own assessment and those of my esteemed viewers from more than 210 countries nd more than 130 followers
Some of my Blog followers are here:
Fernando Ortiz Jr.
SINCE MAY 19, 2015
SINCE MAY 12, 2015
SINCE APR 25, 2015
SINCE APR 23, 2015
SINCE APR 22, 2015
SINCE APR 22, 2015
SINCE APR 8, 2015
SINCE APR 8, 2015
SINCE APR 7, 2015
SINCE APR 7, 2015
SINCE MAR 27, 2015
Age has its own constraints!
Physically, mentally and intellectually most are affected due to old age as senility sets in. I am not an exemption. That is the reason for the million dollar question looming large over! To find a subject for each day, presenting in an interesting manner, anxiously looking for the views every half an hour- (more frequently too?)- saps my energy! I do admit that one need not be so sensitive but I am unable to contain!
Strong believer in the Divine Dispensation, God’s grace will help for any good work. As the Blog work has its own positive impact on all concerned and I should be getting the guidance and help from the Goddess of Learning –Saraswathi in Hindu pantheon- to go beyond the THOUSAND – much beyond 1000!
An ezine from Delhi with the learned Editor Siddharth Sehgal has been for the past one year and more publishing my articles-translated ones regularly every week, After the great Magnum Opus THIRUKKURAL, the great National Poet from Tamilnadu injected patriotism in the society, Manakavi Bharathiyar’s songs are published and they get not less than a hundred readers every week. I take pride in the fact that Mahakavi Bharathiyar’s patriotic and devotional songs are reaching the outside world thanks to this magazine.
INDIAN POETRY CIRCLE and Chennai Poetry Circle:
I am happy to be a part of the above two Organizations and participate in their poetry reading Sessions; a great intellectual and literary feast indeed!
I give an extract of what I wrote some time back as it is quite relevant at this point of time.
“A very interesting observation by a great scientist reads: ‘Art and literature of the highest order cannot flourish in a world which is increasingly becoming mechanical and society a rocket!’.
How true it has been proved! There are no eyes to enjoy the magnificent mountains and veritable valleys, beautiful night sky and ever bright stars, fantastic fauna and fanciful flora, dancing daffodils and revealing roses! There are no ears to listen to the melodies of nature, ennobling music and roaring sound of the waves along the coast of Bay of Bengal or Atlantic Ocean! No time to enjoy the reverberating flow of Ganges waters in the Himalayas and stirring verses from the Vedas and Upanishads, Quran and Bible!
Fast moving vehicles, fast food, fast life- everything fast- no time to stand and stare!
Notwithstanding the above scenario, there are silver lining in the literary world where we see the poetry lovers play viewers and prose gluttons do go in search of journals and books, Meets and Seminars.
Here is one lovely organization called CHENNAI POETRY CIRCLE where the members meet every month to present poems, analyze and discuss, organize annual Seminars where anthology is released, poems and papers on poetry are presented.
In the last CPC Meet held on 22nd July, I had the pleasure of participation along with Ms. S. Nivetha, youngest poet to present her poem.
Here is news coverage in the neighborhood newspaper ANNA NAGAR TIMES dated July 30th-August 5th 2017:
“17 year old S. Nivetha, resident of 12/1045, Jeevan Bima Nagar, Anna Nagar Western Extension presented her poem –‘WINGS OF FRIENDS’- at the Chennai Poetry Circle in their Meet held on 22nd July 2017, in Defence Officers’ Colony Ekkattuththangal.
She was the youngest poet at the Meet.
Mr. N V Subbaraman also presented his poem ‘Freedom He Resented’ at the Meet.
Nivetha is pursuing her graduate course in Ethiraj College, Chennai. Contact number is 2654 4950.
In that way poetry lovers do have the occasions and opportunities to enjoy literary feast- may be prose and verse, plays and films!
I honestly believe sufficient is this TALE TWENTY and God willing going beyond ONE HOUSAND we shall have the TALE TWENTY ONE fifty posts hence.
Thanking the Indian Goddess of Learning Saraswathy and Roman Goddess of wisdom MINERVA for having passionately leading me to this level in my Blogging world, I take leave at present to meet tomorrow morning at 4.00 hrs.
THOUSANDTH POST THOUSANDTH POST THOUSANDTH POST THOUSANDTH
Your submission has been posted in our latest issue, twitter and Facebook page. Check links below.
Yes, TIME is on a marathon!! ENVIUS THOUGHTS –this post is 950th. Just like that keying in My TRYST WITH LIC 885 days ago in February 2015 in my PC-TIME in its marathon beginning has come up to this stage! With another fifty posts, total posts will be ONE THOUSAND!(Tale TWENTY)
With every passing day, we see new skies, new horizons, new rains, new wind -nature in its absolute beauty –Divine manifestation!
This Tale 19 I believe must prove to be as interesting as the last 18- at the interval of every fifty posts. This time it is 950th post on the 884th day of the Blog.
In another 50 posts by HIS grce- the grace of the Goddess of LEARNING –Goddess Saraswathy- it will be THOUSANDTH. That is TALE TWENTY!
Some interesting Posts
Some of the posts had too much of emotional attachment during this period. And they are:
24th June post Strange Alibis
5th July Painful Luxury
12th July Fools First
16th July Week of Deaths.
3rd August Am I Sinner?
20th August Life’s Light Left
Man has to stand on certain principles and they have got to be followed under all circumstances. I remember my beloved father who reached his heavenly abode on 5th March 1987 = at the age of 87 was very very particular about his morning and evening walks. On the evening or 4th March 12 hours before his last breathe he had his 4 kilometer evening walk and as he came down from his first floor bed room on the 5th for 5 o’clock morning walk he sat down and passed away. Point is whether it is summer or winter, cold or rain – he will have his walk with an umbrella! Here is his son who was trained by him right from his age 5 for walks, today at past 75 finds light drizzles on the morning walk time, finds an alibi in the rain drops and comes back happily to resume his sleep at 3-00am!
I pleasantly recollect my college days in karaikudi where Alagappa College was situated five miles away from my house and all the four years I used to walk 5+5= 10 miles irrespective of the season –both up and down- barefooted! Today I see the children in my colony from which the school is situated hardly 200 meters going by the school van or dropped in bike /scooter/car/luxury car! Unfortunate result is obese boys and girls at the age of ten! If this is not PAINFUL LUXURY what else can it be!
Next one- my noble father’s voice I hear from His heavenly home as I would have heard 1000s of time when he was physically with us:“Fools and rogues must be punished-FOOLS FIRST!”. I act very many a time even at this stage of my life and I have to be punished which I regularly have! Have a look at this post to know more about my FOOLISHNESS!
Death is not anything new on earth. Yet a continuous three deaths- of close friends all great scholars- is something that I could not take it easily and reconcile resulting in this post.
For the reasons quoted in this post I do feel I am a SINNER though some of my friends who viewed this post differ with me. What about you!?
Again the biggest tragedy struck me in my life when that “LIFE’S LIGHT LEFT” exactly three years ago on this day the 20th August.
TALE OF VIEWS
In every Tale right till now, I elaborately review the VIEW story since I consider itself to the measuring unit for the Blog. I deem it to be the approval for my posts. In that way August First was a red letter day on the life of ENVIUS THOUGHTS when the overall view score crossed ONE LAKH from 210 countries! This is how I communicated to my esteemed viewers first:
ENVIUS THOUGHTS” CROSSES 1,00,000 VIEWS

Kindly continue. Thanks aplenty.
This is a neighborhood news paper Anna Nagar Times Coverage of ENVIUS THOUGHTS crossing ONE LAKH MARK.
Following this, I had basketful of congratulatory messages through phone calls, g mails and face book! What greater Nobel award is needed for a blogger other than such encomiums?
On the day the news came in the paper, day’s views was 295 –the highest for a day since the Blog was launched! The earlier highest was 257 last August!
As of now overall views have crossed 1,02,000!
A very interesting observation by a great scientist reads: “Art and literature of the highest order cannot flourish in a world which is increasingly becoming mechanical and society a rocket!”.
How true it has been proved! There are no eyes to enjoy the magnificent mountains and veritable valleys, beautiful night sky and ever bright stars, fantastic fauna and fanciful flora, dancing daffodils and revealing roses! There are no ears to listen to the melodies of nature, ennobling music and roaring sound of the waves along the coast of Bay of Bengal or Atlantic Ocean! No time to enjoy the reverberating flow of Ganges waters in the Himalayas and stirring verses from the Vedas and Upanishads, Quoran and Bible!
Fast moving vehicles, fast food, fast life- every thing fast- no time to stand and stare!
Notwithstanding the above scenario, there are silver lining in the literary world where we see the poetry lovers play viewers and prose gluttons do go in search of journals and nooks, Meets and Seminars.
Here is one lovely organization called CHENNAI POETS CIRCLE where the members meet every month to present poems, analyze and discuss, organize annual Seminars where anthology is released, poems and papers on poetry are presented.
In the last CPC Meet held on 22nd July, I had the pleasure of participation along with Ms. S. Nivetha, youngest poet to present her poem.

He daily views the post and makes his comments regularly and a compendium of the same for the reading of my esteemed viewers was posted as Sunday story which was received well.
POSTS AND PICTURES
I always believe that simple words and sentences may in the course of time lead to boredom and dry. Hence I make ita point to post one or two images or pictures appropriate for the topic and content. Photos taken by my family members re put to use. and take refuge in GOOGLE GURU many a time. I am glad to give below comment that was received from one of the regular readers from Manipal: I am impressed with the amazing images/pictures your Blog posts carry day by day. My hearty congratulations. Please continue.”
I feel this much is sufficient for this Sunday Story-950th Post.

His views form the Sunday story today. Mr. G Vasudevan now in Toranto, Canada.
I very strongly believe that I draw strength from the immense Grace of the Lord Almighty and inspiration from my esteemed viewers and their responses. With 134 followers from more than 210 countries, very satisfying progress of the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is the overall view score is about to cross ONE LAKH in a couple of days. By the grace of Goddess of Learning and the enthusiasm of the viewers, today’s post is 928th in the 863 day life of the Blog!
Well, one of my new admiring viewer is Shri Vasudevan my erstwhile colleague in the Life Insurance Corporation of India and presently with his daughter in Toranto, Canada. He daily views the post and makes his comments regularly and here is a compendium of the same for the reading of my esteemed viewers as this week’s Sunday story. I hope you will enjoy reading.
I like your words “EVERYTHING IS CREATED FOR A PURPOSE ” I came to know that tiger belongs to cat family. Tiger is beautiful in sight. Though we are afraid of Tigers, they too have love towards their kith and kin as shown. The picture shows the mother’s love towards its baby. It is known that “LORD AYYAPPA” is a friend to the tigers and could get milk from them ! If we show love and affection to anyone, NO HATRED will be present in GOD’S creations. Thanking you Sir for having given me a chance to express my thoughts also.
I went through the words of Saint Alphonsa. There is rich meaning in her saying about not harming anyone even while talking. She is always fond of sweet talking. She says that she will never complain of anything.
She is always interested to show love to others. For every failure she asks pardon. Her life should make us learn her holy spreading’s. Let this FEAST DAY give “ALWAYS FEAST” to our EYES, SPEECH AND THOUGHTS. Thanking you sir for showing light on HUMAN VALUE and UNDERSTANDING
GREAT TRIBUTES TO THE GREAT LEADER!!
What a strange leader! Holiday was declared as against his will! I am not thinking about your two ill-lucks, but I am proud that you have 1,00,000 followers as of now. I hope the numbers will grow at a greater speed. Your thought on DEATH brings confidence in us . Very nicely I have through the entire article and thanking you sir for a well-read article.
I have gone through this article. Excellent to read! Finally it is a surprise to me that the translator is the AUTHOR himself. Very soon I will be listening to your TAMIL TRANSLATION. Thanking you sir for knowing you more and more!!
Great Abdul KalamJi, Great Pandit NehruJi. Both of them are known for their peace-loving nature. Though KalamJi was a scientist he had been teaching till his last breath. Nehru Ji also delivered a peace-talk at UNO. When I was in 9th Standard, his speech” The world has become advanced in Science. War at the present time will mean an end to the world”was in English lesson. This has touched my heart and I found love is the only key to open all the doors of darkness. About KalamJi, we are proud enough that he led a simple life. It is great that he was attracted to TYAGARAJA PANCHARATNA KIRTIS. Your noble touch in the lines of your poem would keep their memories ALIVE in our lives.
A peace loving nation is ours. It is a known fact that we won the freedom without any arms. But if war is forced we will not watch and forgo our mother’s space. All the wars so far fought have been won. We think of Major Saravanan (whose statue in Trichy Cantonment Area) who has sacrificed his life for the sake of our nation. We LOVE OUR NATION with peace and pride. Thanking you sir for making us remember our KARGIL HEROS.
The child has a confident face and showing a victory sign. Only thing is that we have to be eye openers!
By opening eyes how many things do happen! The wonderful world is bright. Changes are being accepted and adapted. All the day dreams have been fulfilled with wishful thinking and wise actions. Let us make our children realize the reality and show them the path full of wisdom and courage. Thanking you Sir, for waking up at the right moment to make our children great in thoughts and actions.
This is a chance to know that our great poet has praised “TILAK JI” with love and affection. To drive the meanness away is a catchy term in your translation. As Saivites repeat the Lord’s name, we use to chant his glory. Again our Bharath Matha wears Tilak by remembering our “TILAK JI”. Thanking you Sir for driving our emotional national spirit by adoring TILAK JI.
Sir, Went through the two finest incidents of helping nature of the SUPREME LORD! Our kavi Bharathi was also confident of meeting KALA and his Tamil poem is excellent to read. He would drive KALA 4000 miles away. He challenges YAMA in a straight forward contest! Dr. Hayim enjoyed your translation. I praise HIM for his noble understanding of our Great Kavi and his feelings.
Final advice says that our lives should challenge the little problems which come and go and should not be taken to heart. No about your emotions will surely help us to have courage at odd moments. Thanking you Sir, for bringing this article to have STUBBORN MIND in us.
A good poem by Great Bharathi! And a great translation by you Sir and it says a lot about our flag and its protectors. The words expressed show the high esteem of your thought. Not only KAMBAM is tall, your description also is high in national SPIRITS. The words expressed are so strong that I could see
REBORN BHARATHIAR in you. I have no words for description further. I am immensely HAPPY and PROUD that your words should keep our FREEDOM intact. Thanking you Sir again for the creation of awareness of our PRESENT INDEPENDENT INDIA.
Sir, again you have made this day as a MONKEY DAY. We saw two monkeys show the togetherness and attachment. As you rightly told, they know their GOAL and helped Lord Rama heart and soul. Sita is brought back. I see the author’s feeling in the poem that he is not able fix the goal yet. Oh! GOD, help us to have clear VISION and WITHSTANDING power as per the prayer song to the LORD HANUMAN. Thank you Sir, for bringing this note to us and making a feeling that monkeys are superior to us in all respect.
Never thought that this day is a “lolly pop” day, a jolly day. We have come down to the level of children enjoying lolly pop. We are very young if our thoughts are childlike. Yes, we should also be free from all other loads of everyday life. Thanking you Sir, for making us children at times.
I am happy Sir; your books have been published!
I will read those books and enjoy.
I am proud of being a friend of HIGH SCHOLAR, HARD WORKING, and KIND HEARTED.
The history of the growth of communication is interesting .We Humans are unique in communicating. As stated we can lead a noble life by this noble gift. Your last para shows your feelings about the communication in the present days and the unmatched actions. Your feelings are well expressed in the last para and beautifully worded with musical words. I pray God to gift the society with noble thoughts so as to deliver sweet communication followed by kind deeds. Thank you Sir, for creating awareness.
Oh ! Narayana ! Oh ! Namasivaya ! You are able to save elephant and you are able to grant life to Markandeyan. Could you not save our great poet Kavi?! I request you to grant REBIRTH to our great poet!
Sir, Your translation is very nice to read and it showed your WITHSTANDING WILLPOWER!
I ALSO PRAY THE Lord to grant MOKSHA to all the above three HOLY SOULS!
We are motivated to live stronger with boldness in mind!
Thanking you sir for bringing this finest article.
Simple, Brave, and courageous leader! He was leader to the poor. He was the king of Education! He earned name and fame! He was the CM in the glorious era.. His HISTORY cannot be forgotten. Thanking you sir.
Sir, wonderful description of noble virtues of PATIENCE. It brings us VICTORIES. It lightens the anger of others during each and every communication. It gives us the ability to think first and then act. It is a wonderful GIFT in customer servicing. It earns respect from elders. Patient hearing helps to build the confidence in the minds of Old-Age people. It gives beauty to our face and handling of any situation becomes easier and lighter.
As you rightly said” MOTHER EARTH” has more patience to have all of us in HER lap.
Thank you, sir, for bringing this GIFT ARTICLE. We thank our MOTHER EARTH also.
Sir, Population issue is rightly discussed. Global Vision is now required to carry out the mission..
Went through the Sunday special. My praises to Sri Ramamurthy for appreciating your noble noting.
I thank the LORD for having given the senses to understand and realize the ENORMOUS POTENTIAL

Here is the Part XIV of the VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS where we have been giving the views of our regular viewer and commentator Shri OKR Sivagnam who was my colleague in the great Public Sector Undertaking – Life Insurance Corporation of India, which I proudly served for four decades and more. Shri Sivanganam is regular in viewing ENVIUS THOUGHTS and sending a review thereon on a day today basis. It is a matter of delight that he is as enthusiastic in viewing and reviewing as I am in posting! -religiously meticulous! Kindly read and enjoy. Here we have covered his Reviews in the current year.
An additional aspect is he goes through my very early postings in 2015 till he came in contact with ENVIUS THOUGHTS and makes reviews to the delight of my esteemed viewers.
Part XIII covered upto 1/4/17. Here it is uptodate.
A nice definition of a POEM in your Rhyme and Rhythm or Theme and Content today!
The lyric of a poem loses its lustre and goes hiding from the eyes – physical and mental – of a reader hungry for its content and flow, if it is bereft of the requirements set forth for the purpose!
We reach the ecstatic heights when our heart and soul are sought to be elevated with the powerful aid of fertile imagination flowing graciously as they are from the careful creation of the poet!
The Rhyme and Rhythm and, Theme and Content, referred to in your post are the heart and soul of a poem worth its name, and quite indispensable to perform its function effectively!
The Lord will only be happy to see His devotees’ prayers in words right, playing music to His ears sharp!
Happy to hear the figure 93000- CONGRATS.
Your post today on Cancer Survivor Day ( 4th June) is a nice note to create an awareness on the disease!
A most deadly and destructive condition it’s that the word cancer by itself sends shrill down one’s spine!
The shift in food habits from the one traditionally followed may be one of the main causes that contributed to the enormity of the problem we face today!
What we consume happily is palatable to our taste buds, but not at all taken kindly by our body system, which in turn results in unhealthy physical conditions such as cancer we’re dealing with!
The disservice we render to the original environment compounds the problem to unimaginable proportions!
We’re in a commercial mode that whatever we do invariably consists of the element of returns in financial terms!
What’s ideal for our healthy living is ignored to our peril!
Once cancer enters into our homes uninvited, we become panic, and everything under the sun becomes a thing of dismay, and we begin to lose the purpose of life altogether;
But then, we need to reconcile ourselves to the situation, and face it boldly with its attending inconveniences in order that we may tolerate wholeheartedly and aid in lessening the adverse impacts to the extent possible!
Such a survivor can extend the hope needed by the cancer-suffering people, and be of helpful to them in perceiving the condition as less painful and therefore manageable!
Nice reviews of Prasad on Envius Thoughts -Part 4 on 21/5/17!
I thank him for his appreciation, referring to my comments!
It’s fine that he’s shifting to daily reviewing and reporting on your blogs- from weekly basis earlier!
I’m afraid I’m drifting from my daily sharing- must turn to him for regularity!
His reviews are total and complete in themselves, and can well be followed close to your daily posts for full clarity!
I’m of the humble opinion that he shares your wavelength, as found in his feedback to yours!
God bless him!
Nicely presented is the voice of Rajeev Jha under the series VISITOR’S VOICE-Part 6!
Kudos to Rajeev!
A voice powerful enough to wake us from the deep slumber, and make us enjoy his comments coming afresh straight, with the early morning nice-to-enjoy breeze!
Commenting on his comments may be simply superfluous , for his observation and expression are complete in themselves!
I heard you commented on the effectiveness of sharing and commenting on your daily posts!
Now I fully understand the truth behind your opinion that is as valuable as your posts themselves!
Your post on Young Rajiv the Great appeared on 22/5/17 is a good read!
Leaders are for sure a great boon to a country!
They are a guide to our future leaders in the making!
An exemplary leader represents his / her country, spreads the culture overseas, and brings accolades to his/her motherland!
India can really boast of such leaders to our credit!
We’ve had Mahatma Gandhi who stood for values in life, and spearheaded our war of independence!
Who can forget Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who was the long-serving and successful Prime Minister of our country?
And Rajiv, the youngest Prime Minister of India, and the architect of modern India, remains a living example for our youngsters today!
We’ve inherited leaders of such calibre and fail not to follow their dictates for building a cleaner India, and show the way to other nations of the world!
Your International Family Day post on 15th instant is a nice read!
The small family norm we’ve adopted with the sole aim of making our life self-sustaining has turned out to be a folly, given our pathetic situation, wondering as what to do in our challenging times, often groping in the dark, on the look-out for the right solutions, which otherwise would have been readily available due to the presence of our elders around us!
Realization dawned on us to conclude that our wrong attempt was born out of sheer financial expediency that could only fulfill our wants as and when they occured, losing in the process the all-important peace and mental well-being!
Let us therefore revert to the good old joint family system, and adore our elders by fulfilling their needs in their old age, thereby keeping the family values in tact!
Much more refreshing is your Haiku on Summer on 13/5/17!
Summer may be the hottest season of the year, nevertheless, most welcome for reasons obvious!
For the old and the sick, it’s most unwelcome due to the inconvenience that goes with the scorching sun that is characteristic of heat during the season!
But, for children and adults too, summer promises amusement, fun, and frolic during its presence!
Notwithstanding the aversion due to the heat produced, it brings showers pleasant and presents greenery most appealing to the humans and other living beings!
In winter, we expect to enjoy summer with all its paraphernalia ;
Alternately, we expect summer to exit soon to prevent ourselves from the ill effects of summer- which is mostly to do with the heat and, of course, nothing more than that!
Nature has its own way of treating its creations, and there’s no escape from its impact, favorable or unfavorable!
May we enjoy all seasons whatever they are worth for, and remain thankful to Nature for all the gifts we’re endowed with!
Part 12 of your Journey to Freedom that appeared on 10/5/17 emphasizes the impact of Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 on the successful execution of the strategies adopted for attaining our freedom from the foreign yoke!
The coming together of all sections of people added strength to our war of independence, making the British government dwell on the proposition of slowly yielding to the designs of our freedom fighters, and think in terms of their exit once and for all from India!
The grit and determination, and the perseverance shown by our leaders was really challenging to the invader, who could no longer pursue their cruel rule on the foreign soil!
Part 10 of your Journey to Freedom shows how our patriotic leaders and followers had viewed their sacrifices an enjoyment in their mission towards freedom for our Motherland!
On return from South Africa, Mahatma made Sabarmati Ashram his home, and also the home to many important decisions concerning our Freedom Struggle!
Dandi March was one among the many programmes launched by M K Gandhi to make unity among the people the cornerstone behind the movements that was baffling and irritating to the British raj!
Considering the goal of independence, the sacrifices made were not an issue at all for the fighting band of truthful soldiers!
And this exactly acted as a morale booster for the leader, who was none other than Mahatmaji,to go ahead with the fight relentlessly!
Your Journey to Freedom (Part 9) is a nice read!
The name that comes before us when a reference is made to Andaman& Nicobar in connexion with our freedom struggle is Sarvarkar and his role in the mission towards independence!
How cruel was the torture meted out to our freedom fighters, can be seen in the special shows being exhibited in the Andaman cells!
To understand the sacrifices, and to revere them, the youngsters must visit Andaman and know for themselves what could be the nature of atrocities undergone by the fighters on the field!
This is one instance that stands as the proof for the activities of our patriotic people under the leadership of M K Gandhi, in arriving at the goal of independence for our Motherland!
A nice post on Press Freedom Day!
A tied press never helps in adoration of democratic principles!
Freedom of speech and expression is a constitutional requirement that must never be defied!
Indifference to this aspect is otherwise a death knell to democracy!
Nowadays political interference in press freedom kills the spirit behind a free and fair press!
Paid news has become the order of the day, and the famously called fourth pillar of democracy has lost its power to the political class – a worse trend indeed!
People have the right to true news, and this should never be sought to be crushed in the name of dancing to the tunes of powers that be!
Let the press be instrumental in creating a harmonious society, putting an end to sensationalism in news reporting!
World Penguin Day post on 25/4/17 is a nice read!
Whatever created in this world has a definite purpose to fulfill for the humanity to prosper with love, peace, and harmony nicely embracing it!
We must be happy about it for its sheer power of making co-existence with all other living beings, a definite possibility!
All the 18 species of penguins are found in the southern hemisphere , and according to the scientists, their population and well being are the indicators of Antarctica, the earth’s most frozen continent in the world.
Like us the humans, penguins too get threatened due to the erratic climate!
And again, it’s a social being like us, and would like to live and swim in groups!
Its power of recognition is great to the extent that it can easily recognise its mate and young ones, say in a large group!
It’s reported that most of the penguins practice monogamy, and stick to one partner even in situations where they are separated and living thousands of miles away – a lesson for us to practice diligently!
Your World Malaria Day post on 25/4/17 serves to create an awareness on the deadly malaria and how to avoid it for a healthy living!
Health is wealth – so goes the adage to remember and get benefited!
We must be healthy to enjoy the fruits of life;
But little we do care about our surroundings, and as a result, render it unhygienic to live!
And our careless attitude becomes the cause of many diseases we suffer from!
We’re responsible for the stagnant water, a breeding ground for the mosquitos to attack us with malaria ;
25th April being the Malaria Day observed through the length and breadth of the world , is a day for us to be aware of the healthy way of living and endeavor to make the theme of the year” End Malaria for Good “, a reality and live happily for ever!
Journey to Freedom( Part 8 ) on 27/4/17 is a good read!
History of our freedom struggle against the British has a lot to convey especially to the youngsters!
An awareness on the sacrifices behind our freedom will make one realize the need for love of the nation to be able to take responsibilities in right earnest for the common cause of our Motherland!
Good governance is the need of the hour and so it’s pertinent that our leaders do not forget the integrity -factor while running the affairs of the State!
M K Gandhi through his selfless activities, rose and successfully fought against the invader, and in this long process , launched the Satyagraha movement in Champaran to support the cause of farmers when confronted with poverty due to the indigo plantation issue!
The examples of the likes of Mahatma Gandhi must boost the spirit of of our leaders, current and future, in ensuring the right governance for the common weal of the people!
I enjoyed your post on MOUNTAINS on 28/4/17!
We cannot and should not blame the Nature’s creations!
Everyone of them contributes to the wellness of all living things !
Mountains for that matter, are a calm destination that ensures a peaceful mind , with no deviations to disturb the serene state!
Living in and around a mountain is a gift bestowed on the humankind by the great Almighty!
Environmental degradation is the prime cause of many problems we face today ;
It’s therefore our responsibility to guard against all sorts of exploitation to keep it as it’s, for all of us to enjoy the beauty of mountains, otherwise known as the natural borders!
Our encroachment in nature’s ways is bound to backfire and leave us wondering how to get out of the situation and lead a peaceful life!
Let us therefore think it over and mend ourselves for the better!
Your post on Rivers on 29/4/17 explains how they are a gift to all living beings!
Can we imagine our life sans water?
Obviously we cannot, and also according to Thiruvalluvar, the saintly poet of Tamil Nadu!
Rivers are a great source of our sustenance through their supply of abundant water- of course, in anticipation of nothing in return from the beneficiaries!
In the absence of sufficient water, getting our daily quota of food will remain a dream never to be fulfilled!
It’s for the mankind to ensure the sacredness of rivers through non-interference in their course of flow!
May we not obstruct its journey, by dumping garbages in rivers, as often resorted to unscrupulously by us in the name of keeping our own homes neat and tidy!
This much is for this Sunday story.
We shall meet on Monday as usual, till then all the best.
Shri OKR Sivanganam whose views on ENVIUS THOUGHTS, the esteemed readers have above.
The seen and known only through my inward eyes – Shri Rajeev Jha of Bilaspur.
This week’s Sunday story carries the VISITOR”S VOICE PART VI on ENVIUS THOUGHTS-the voice of my great unseen friend and unheard voice to my physical body(!) Shri RAJEEV JHA of Bilaspur has been a regular viewer of the Blog. He sends his view through Face Book almost every day. His part V was published on 5/3/2017 covering his voice up to 1-3-2017.Here is Part VI covering up to 30th April 2017. The esteemed viewers of these five parts so far would have happily enjoyed his scholarship, deep knowledge of Sanskrit and the great religion of Hinduism- a way of life and living. I am sure this part will also be found to be as great as earlier ones.
Season changes .. Mosquitoes, unique creation of God, have special organs to whine or buzz as they fly, to annoy us, other mosquitoes can hear the noise, and attract others.
They are not dead; Their memory is warm in our hearts, Comfort in our sorrow. They are not apart from us, But a part of us For love is eternal, And those we love shall be with us Throughout all eternity.”
National Safety Day is annually organized to enhance the safety awareness among people. It is a national movement carried out on annual basis to prevent and lessen the loss of life including various human being problems and their financial loss through availing them with safety, health and environment related support services
The rich rewards come when you add values and represent collective comments of viewer. I feel very happy to find such place. .
The festival of color shows that good wins over evil. It’s also believed that God always saves their devotees when they get stuck in any problem. “O! Adorable Lord, set forth your vigor, as a hunter speeds his capacious snare, and go like a compelling king on his elephant with his orderlies. You are the scatterer of dark forces. May you swiftly follow and transfix the knaves with your dash that blazes more fiercely. ” Nice note, Sir. Wish you and family a very Happy Holi.
Iconic genius and legendary theoretical physicist he is, who formulated the Theory of Relativity and the mass-energy equivalence formula. Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity drastically altered man’s view of the universe, and his work in particle and energy theory helped make possible quantum mechanics and, ultimately, the atomic bomb
The day is to raise awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases. Vaccination protects children from serious illness and complications of vaccine-preventable diseases which can include amputation of an arm or leg, paralysis of limbs, hearing loss, convulsions, brain damage, and death. Vaccine-preventable diseases, such as measles, mumps, and whooping cough, are still a threat. So the commitment of the remembrance
The day is to make the people aware of the basic and essential knowledge of tuberculosis, causes, prevention and cure of this disease to get prevented and eradicate this disease from the world. It is very necessary to aware people of all group and field about this epidemic disease to take precautions. All the people at workplace or at home should be encouraged about their health maintenance and must know about the prevention from tuberculosis. People must know that it is a completely curable disease
Life is a theatre ” All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; Act well your part; there all the honor lies. We do on stage things that are supposed to happen off, which is a kind of integrity, if you look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else. Music blows lyrics up very quickly, and suddenly they become more than art. They become pompous and they become self-conscious. An actor must never be afraid to make a fool of himself.
.Humans have used weeds for food and as herbs for much of recorded history. Some are edible and nutritious while other weeds have medicinal value. Common weeds do offer some benefits. They provide the very oxygen that we breathe. Weeds take in the carbon dioxide that we exhale. They also offer food and shelter for birds and wildlife.
ओ३म् । ऋतं च सत्यं चाभीद्धात्तपसोध्यजायत। ततो रात्र्यजायत ततः समुद्रोअर्णवः ।। १।। समुद्रादर्णवादधि संवत्सरोअजायत। अहोरात्राणि विदधद्विश्वस्यमिषतो वशी।। २।। सूर्याचन्द्रमसौ धाता यथापूर्वमकल्पयत्। दिवं च पृथिवीं चान्तरिक्षमथो स्वः।। ३।। ऋग्वेद १०.१९०.१-३ This Ugadi, may you be blessed with good fortune as long as Ganeshji’s trunk, wealth and prosperity as big as his stomach, happiness as sweet as his ladoos and may your trouble be as small as his mouse. Happy Ugadi !!!
“Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, among other Indian leaders, was extremely critical of this Act and argued that not everyone should get punishment in response to isolated political crimes. The Act annoyed many Indian leaders and the public, which caused the government to implement repressive measures. Gandhi and others found that constitutional opposition to the measure was fruitless, so, a “hartal”
was organised where Indians would suspend all business and fast as a sign of their opposition and civil disobedience would be offered against specific law. This event is known as the Rowlatt Satyagraha.”
“The conquest of India, which could be said to have begun with the Battle of Plassey (1757), was practically completed by the end of Dalhousie’s tenure in 1856. Again, the Mutiny of 1857, which began with a revolt of the military soldiers at Meerut, soon became widespread and posed a grave challenge to the British rule. ”
“Jainism is one of the oldest living religions of India. It predates recorded history as per references indicated in Hindu scriptures. It is a religion of purely human origin. Mahavir preached non-violence and prohibited any kind of killing. He also believed that the most virtuous life is spent sitting still and fasting, as then a man does not run the risk of injuring life even involuntarily, by swallowing or treading upon insects. On his birth anniversary, every Jain resolves to follow his teachings.
This special day offers an opportunity to raise the public’s awareness about the diversity of cultural heritage and the efforts that are required to protect and conserve it, as well as draw attention to its vulnerability. World Heritage is the shared wealth of humankind.
The idea is to eat fast food as an appetizer or as breakfast. Pigs in Blankets are tasty little treats children and adults scarf down at family get-togethers and big bashes. Perfect for breakfast or served as an appetizer, these popular snacks are little sausages or wieners wrapped in a pancake, biscuit or croissant dough or bacon.
A chance to promote or learn about the efforts made to prevent and reduce Malaria around the world. World Malaria Day is all about celebrating the successes there have been in the drive to eradicate malaria from the world as well as raising awareness of the disease and its prevention.
The reason why mountains and hills signified the goods of celestial and spiritual love, is that they are prominent above the earth, and by things prominent and high are signified those which are of heaven, and in the supreme sense which are of the Lord. We should respect and protect these gifts of God.
Water is of special significance in Hinduism, not only for its life-sustaining properties, but also because of its use in rituals and because of the stress given to cleanliness. Bathing also has religious significance, especially in God’s creation “rivers” considered sacred
It is very interesting to read all comments of Mr Ramamurthi Thupakula, who is well-steeped in his subject matter and who has deep knowledge of entire subject.
International Workers’ Day is an occasion that pays tribute and respect to workers and their contribution towards making our lives easier. A cause close to the heart of many socialists, Communists and the labour movement, May Day celebrates and honours workers. A public holiday of much importance to labour rights’ activists, it is also an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival
Freedom of information and freedom of expression are the founding principles for open and informed debate. Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers. Today is a date to encourage and develop initiatives in favour of press freedom, and to assess the state of press freedom worldwide.
When fire is cried and danger is neigh, “God and the firemen” is the people’s cry; But when ’tis out and all things righted, God is forgotten and the firemen slighted
The Andaman and Nicobar islands , an archipelago of islands situated in the middle of the Bay of Bengal is more than 700 kms away from the Indian Mainland but still it holds great significance in our independence struggle. Before independence these islands , especially Andaman was just a penal colony with the dreaded prison Kalapani or Cellular jail at its midst. The infamous cellular jail was a place for inhuman torture and confinement of freedom fighters from mainland India and as such this jail became a symbol of colonial oppression. Ironically this island of oppression was the first part of Indian land to be liberated.
The Sabarmati Ashram was home to Mohandas Gandhi and served as one of the main centres of the Indian freedom struggle. Originally called the Satyagraha Ashram, reflecting the movement toward passive resistance launched by the Mahatma, the Ashram became home to the ideology that set India free. Sabarmati Ashram named for the river on which it sits, was created with a dual mission. To serve as an institution that would carry on a search for truth and a platform to bring together a group of workers committed to non-violence who would help secure freedom for India
Internationally known as the ‘Bard of Bengal,’ Rabindranath Tagore’s genius is seldom understood completely by the common man. A poet, novelist, musician, painter, educationist, and a social reformer, Tagore has worn multiple hats in eighty years of his life. He is considered as a cultural symbol for not only his home-state, but also nationally. Tagore is in fact best known for being the first person from Asia to have ever won the Nobel Prize.
“A mother is special, she’s more than a friend. Whenever you need her, she’ll give you a hand. I think God made Mother like He’d make his own. A praiser, a helper, an encourager too, nothing in this world that she wouldn’t do. To help us succeed she does all that she can…” Very nice poem by Nivetha.
Gokhale was an indispensable link in the transformation of the freedom struggle to a more informed one and for the commitment to bring Indians on parity with the Britishers in terms of knowledge and administrative skills and to prove that Indians too can govern and can govern more efficiently. Gokhale gave voice to the aspirations of millions of Indians who were looking for freedom from the British rule. Gandhiji considered him as his political guru
Florence Nightingale (the foundational philosopher of the modern nursing) was born on 12th of May in 1820. International Council of Nurses established the day in 1974 to be celebrated every year to highlight the importance of nurses’ role in providing the best health care services. She became an important figure of the nursing since Crimean War during 1850s. She, stationed at the Barrack Hospital, Scutari, reformed the health care services and nursing and opened “the Nightingale School of Nursing” at the St. Thomas Hospital, London in 1860
The learned will follow the way of life, to enjoy nature and its warmth so rife
World Telecommunications Day is celebrated to increase awareness about the positives of communication technology among public. It also aims to make information and communication more accessible to people residing in remote and rural areas. It is mainly to increase the awareness of crucial communications in every life and the stimulation in a field like the development of technologies
The food’s here of the first crow to arrive, numbers two and three at a safe side, then approaching the hand-created taste What if to taste and see, to notice things, to stand each is up against emptiness
“The Rajiv era” can be regarded as the most distinguished period of initiating sets of break through reforms involving, India’s modernization, economic liberalization, inclusive growth, democratic decentralization, co-operative federalism, technological advancement, resource-based agricultural growth; economic reform and the concept of India as an emerging and independently great power. Nice remembrance,
: World Turtle Day:: Here people are encouraged to learn more about turtles and help protect them and their habitats, which are rapidly disappearing around the world. Turtles are a type of reptile that exists in many environments through the word and have found their way into literature, poetry, and parable throughout the world’s history.
Donkey is an introvert he has never ever let out a complete bray. Donkeys can sing and donkeys can bray a distress bray. Just like dogs can sing along with their human and dogs can bark when stressed so can donkeys. A high-pitched sound like the violin can make a donkey bray and this is singing, similar to a dog who will sing along when we encourage them with high notes. The donkey has amazing hearing. When the donkey hears another donkey braying with the distress bray they understand the distress sound as it is their language
I do believe that you would have enjoyed this part of Visitors Voice and we shall meet as usual tomorrow. Thanks.
Out of more than 85000 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 I was posted on 8th January 2017 covering his views upto 7/1/2017.
Jainism’s Karma theory is considered to be a scorecard of one’s life. Lord Mahaveera, the 24th and the last Tirthambara. His great sermons are considered not only just holy but also considered to be sacred by the followers and the whole world as well. Rather than viewing them in a narrow religions connotations, they should be seen as a way of life in real term
The great epic Ramayana, is a perpetual pride of India, its culture and ethos. Avatharapurush Rama’s life is a teaching to the whole world, on how a human being should lead his life. Sage Valmiki, once asked Narad, to tell him who possesses all the 16 Gunas, that our scriptures stipulate m(as he did not know). Pat he replies it is only Rama. What more, we Bharathiyans want?
Yes. It is a great initiative that the present generation and the youth to be are to be re-told our glorious freedom movement. The uniqueness of the struggle, resistance, defy the ruler’s atrocities, valiant struggle, untold miseries our freedom fighters underwent at the hands of Britishers, an unparalleled sacrifice, and above all the great leadership of our Mahatma, who spearheaded the movement across the length and breadth of our great land, – which only had resulted in the orderly withdrawal of the British. Unfortunately all are now confined to text books, which are read, and forgotten with their examinations! So I repeat that your initiative will go a long way in remembering our great history.
The very introduction to the series is fine. India, which had suffered at the hands of invaders, has been told. The viewers must be waiting its continuations. I wish the youth, particularly the students should start viewing.
Yes, it is not just associated with Telugu language, although this marks the beginning of the year. I supplement that this is also celebrated by Pandits of Kashmir with great enthusiasm and fervor. There is an official custom in Tirupati Tirumala Devasthanam to read Panchangam on this day for the benefit of all.
The Draconian Rawlatt Act, was, in our history, regarded as height of Britisher’s atrocities against Indians. Our Mahatma resisted, and on the day along with our Mahatma, Dr. Satyapal and Dr. Saifudin were arrested and added to that there taken to unknown places. Due to Our freedom fighters’ consistent resistence, confronting their oppression, the British regime repealed the law in the year 1922. Generations should remember the great sacrifices made by our freedom fighters, under the leadership of our Mahatma Gandhi, which only got independence to us.
Yes, the Nobel Laureate Albert Einstein’s contributions to the Science world are spectacular. Prominent of them is his theory of special relatively. One interesting parallel, our Swamy Vivekananda also was developing his theories on E=mc2 and by the time he announces to the world, he passed away. I remember to have read this in a popular daily, as told by a speaker in a function, addressing the students. Persons like Mr. Subbaraman should throw light on this.
Yes, women were (not are) suppressed, even subjugated by the by their men-counterparts, to the detriment of exploring their potential. In the preceding few decades, particularly Israel’s PM and our Indira Gandhi at the help and asserting, world started recognizing the potential in women. The inspiration for all these, needless to say, is our Mahakavi Bharathi. At the time when our women were suppressed, he categorically declared that they are capable of attaining great degrees and legislating, etc (pattangal aalwadhum, sattangal seivathum…..) . So, with our poet’s assertion, the present theme given is considered to be relevant.
Our Mahatma gave clarion call to his fellow countrymen to satisfy themselves in every action, particularly his advice to them in the matter of their being a true citizen of the nation. Just as Rama is revered for His uprightness, seeker of Dharma, an avathara to teach all virtues to the world, our Mahatma, in his every action, in every speech and every sermon he served, we see our Mahatma as Avathara Purush to save our nation and its people. He not only preached “path of duty is way to glory. Mother Bharath is proud to have such a son!
It is a fitting tribute. Yes, The Father is an important institution, for the very reason that one derives Gnana from him. No manthra could be bigger than that of father.
How interesting! Let me also supplement a couple of things to Mr. Subbaraman’s great thinking. In our great epic Ramayana, FOUR siblings, represent and signify the FOUR Purusharthas, the great Rishis aver and interpret. The directions are FOUR. Regarding our contributions to the Mathematics, Ramanujan gave hundreds of solutions on his own. An anecdote to explain his innate genius: “As he saw Registration number in the number plate of a car, instantly he commented that number is the highest when added”. It never struck to anybody.
Mr. Subbaraman’s blog viewers are delighted to note it shares with people over 200 countries across globe. A great achievement! It has crossed stupendous milestone, and everyday it is refreshing, inspiring, informative and thought provoking. The author has stated certain things as ‘weakness’. Not at all!, I am afraid, I have to totally disagree. A septuagenarian, with lifelong experiences, commands a great knowledge, skilled to apply in an apt manner, known for humility, deserve praises from all quarters. I am too small, a less competent person, even to give him encomiums. All that I pray Him is to grant him a long, healthy life.
Yes Sir, Mother tongue plays a dominant role in the lives of the people – across globe. Contemporary history tells how battle for his/her language got twists in political or national life. One glaring example is that people of East Pakistan waged a relentless battle for over 30 years for their glorified mother tongue – Bangla, against the ruling party’s (the then) Pakistan’s assertion over Urdu. The struggle witnessed twists and resulted in the birth of a nation – Bangladesh. In India, we have seen Linguistic states, which saw majority of people’s languages were the local language. However, the Eastern part of India, where more than one language is spoken the decision was different. Thus a situation of imbroglio was seen and it was handled by our Government in a sagacious manner. The message all these convey is that one’s attachment and love to his mother’s tongue is sensitive. Everyone has his/her legitimate pride over his/her language. One should know to respect the sentiments.
Our nation has produced a galaxy of great people – spiritual, national, social – at all times of need. One such great soul was our Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, revered by the entire world. I take a legitimate pride to say that I am a product of Ramakrishna Order. His contributions in the fields of Social, educational medical, spiritual and many more are immense. The mission, though founded by him, commanding a perpetual succession to serve the nation in all spheres. Sainthood in its hierarchy is an hallmark in its successful functioning. The nation should recognize Ramakrishna Order for its immense contributions with impact in high order.
Oh ! How many facts, which many do not know? Yes, knowledge seekers should definitely know these important astronomical marvels. Kudos to Mr. Subbaraman, the author, for bringing these rare facts. Viewers stand to benefit.
Mr. Gautham Karmakar’s interview with you gives almost a full account of your long drawn inspiring, well-meaning life. Several information contained is really news to us (at least to me). The magnitude of your knowledge, which is the direct blessing of our Godess Saraswathi, your philosophies and principles and the inspiration you have drawn from many, galaxy of great lived in this great land – are all
No way, I am a competent person even to praise, but immensely proud of associating with you and personally I stand gained.
You have chosen to mention Sevalaya for which I should thank you.
I wish to read the excerpts more times to understand and keep several things in mind.
Saint Ramanujan lived for 120 years, as Vedas bless us. Paramacharya lived in our midst, lived exactly for a century to bless us all. No doubt, He rejoices persons like you who possess great thoughts and imbibe great qualities. I pray He should grant you a longer life to serve all.
It is yet another inspiring poetic write-up captioned, “Song of a Serpent” May I supplement that He, on the plea and prayer from Serpent Karkotaka, dwelled on him in Namakkal Kshetra?
Our inspiring mythology goes to say that the Serpent remains not only to be His bed, and also an umbrella and thus serves (Kainkaryam) Him all round and at all times.
Those who, out of sheer ignorance think that the serpent is just poisonous, should know that it is a creature with umpteen philosophies, and in fact meant to serve sermons to the human beings only. Kudos to Mr. Subbaraman’s well meaning choice of the theme.
Oh! What a song on squirrel!
The episode in our epic Ramayana, seeks to teach us morals and lessons.
The tiny creature’s contribution is a symbolic one that everyone should think in terms of what they can contribute, however small it may be. Several drops thus collected can make an ocean.
Like this wherever we touch our epic, it is only Dharma, and nothing else. All the 24 K convey us. We are rich on this and so we are proud.
Mr. Subbaraman’s write ups are information to me. It is excellent and useful that everyone should know. I learn from the blog posted, that several firsts are there to her credit. Again it is true and to be conceded that British’s contribution to the Science world is spectacular and the whole world owe them and even indebted to them.
Alas, what a loss that our nation suffered in snatching away the precious life! The world mourns on the tragic death of 7 young. In Kalpana’s achievement, it was proved again that there is no dearth of talents. On this day, let the youth, particularly the knowledge industry in India resolve to rise, achieve and prove the world that India is a a land of talents. This should be a fitting remembrance to the astronaut.
Yes, the nation has lost a leader, a great leader, and friend-philosopher-guide and above all as fondly and aptly called Father of the Nation. But for the assassination, the nation would have further benefited at least for a couple of decades, by his sagacious prescription of counseling, cautioning in every single matter that assumes importance in the national life and character. Alas! Fate had snatched the pious soul forcibly. Instead of weeping, it will be desirable that all the 1.21 billion people take pledge to follow his ideals and contribute for the construction and reconstruction of our holy motherland. This only will be a fitting tribute than other mere rhetoric talks. As Shakespeare had said, if we have tears, shed it.
Shri Subbaraman deserves all praises from all quarters for his consistent initiative on the matters of national importance and pride.
Yes, Nation celebrated its 68th Republic Day yesterday. True, under the stewardship of our Mahatma got liberated from Britisher’s yoke and on 26th January 1950 the nation gave its valuable Constitution. On this great day, every Indian should remember Tilak, the man, who’s every word, action, deed, was only national integration, sans any differences amongst them on any consideration of Caste, colour, creed, religion, faith, language, etc. It is also equally important, that several lakhs of unsung heroes, sacrificed everything at the altar of Mother Bharath.
Yes, born as our 18th State, it commands its legitimate prestige. Pleasantly a chill state, apple is the mainstay agricultural economy. Beauty is its uniqueness. It is a jewel and crown on our Bharath Matha.
Subhash’s velour and sacrifice have been captured in a capsule. History records his great deeds, notwithstanding the fact some differ on his path. Nation will remember forever. Zillion salutes!
Our Indian Army has been rated 4th best in the world in several parameters, viz. valor, grit, patriotic fervor, zeal, commitment to the nation, accomplishing with responsibility dedication, and above all sacrifice. They displayed all the qualities of highest order in all the wars imposed on us. Yes, India has got a history that it never invaded any country. So we had to defend and face the wars to protect our sacred land, people and sovereignty While we hail all the victories in the wars, the greatest one to recall, remember and to be pride should be the 1971 war, spearheaded by our then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi. Nation remembers and gives its zillion salutes to her for taking the entire nation to win the war, which had raised the eyebrows of the world. It is evident that the then opposition leader Vajpayee, piloted praising slogans on Indiraji, as she entered Parliament after the war was over. He hailed her saying, Makali, Durga and saviour. A political comment on this: Indiraji returned to Parliament with two third majorities in the elections held after the war. This was the prize given by the people on her victory.

However there should be strong opinion to be led that milk habit should replace this. There could be large number of benefits one can derive,
