RAMAMURTHI ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS! Part V – Envius Thoughts

The Blog gets inspired  by the esteemed viewers from more than two hundred countries of the world as  can be seen by the overall view score.
The blog’s esteemed viewers appear to be reasonably satisfied with the contents and presentation as is seen from the increasing number of views gradually but steadily.

Very pleasant experiences are when our esteemed viewers express their appreciation in their own style! In this Sunday Story “THREE S’s on Envius Thoughts” on the Blog are given below and I am sure other viewers will enjoy and respond suitably. Who are these THREE S’s! One is my co colonyvasi yet to be personally met  Sri SRIRAM! Second S is Sri SARAVANAN of Thiruvarur. The third S is Sri SANKAR of Pondicherry!
1. FIRST S Sri SRIRAM:

All the songs mentioned by NVS sir is in you tube and we can fully justify it is “Creative Composer”.

Mr NVS has graciously accepted my suggestion to end the article in a positive way.
Hats off to him.  could find Mr NVS has no ego and willing to improvise immediately.

VASUDEVAN ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS PART III – Envius Thoughts

TALE OF A BLOGGER 40

PRESS AND ENVIUS THOUGHTS! – Envius Thoughts

TWO THOUSANDth POST

2000th Post

Yes, today it is 2000th post-and hence the TALE OF A BLOGGER Part 40!

Today is not a Sunday but  it is  2000th post. It is Wednesday 27th May.  Any how I am the monarch of all I survey as for as the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is concerned! I am the writer, Editor, a viewer –thank God I am not the only viewer- more than 2 lakhs viewers are there! PLEASE LOOK FOR THIS SUNDAY STORY also  on 31st May.

1947 days are over since the Blog was launched on 25th February 2015  and today is 1948th day and the post is 2000th without any break. God has been kind enough to bless with physical, mental and intellectual strength to continue this passion sans any break. This Tale has become a Wednesday STORY instead of  SUNDAY STORY!

The blog’s esteemed viewers appear to be reasonably satisfied with the contents and presentation as is seen from the following increasing number of views gradually but steadily though slight depression will be there on a few days.

20/05/2020 1941st day 1992nd post        2,46,000 views

14/05/2020 1935th day 1983rd post      2,45,000 views

06/05/2020 1927th day 1972nd post       2,44,000 views

26/04/2020  1917th day 1961st post      2,43,000 views

16/04/2020   1907th day   1949th post     2,42,000 views.

Well, during the period covered by the last fifty posts, flood of water has flown under Ganges!

The whole world continues to be flooded with CORONA VIRUS and it is several days we see the people walking or biking on the roads! It is estimated by the scientists that the total weight of the CORONA VIRUS in the ENTIRE WORLD is JUST ONE GRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is what I wrote a small note to my friends in Chennai and some outsiders:

“Men
May walk
May not walk
On the road!
May bike
May not bike
On the road!
But I
Go on
Watching from my balcony
A few who do,
Dogs running here and there barking,
Crows flying in the blue sky
Jumping from branch of
One tree to another.
Tree branches swinging,
This side and that side
Because of wind,
Or because of swinging wind blows?”

Yes today’s CONCERN, WORRY, botheration, thoughts, talks writings  and so on are about that monster virus all over the world called CORONA supposed to have originated from our neighbor CHINA. All are locked in and are under punishment of “STAY AT HOME”! No schools, no colleges, no offices, no factories, no trains, no flights, no transportation, no temples, no churches, no mosques, no Gurudwaras, no eating houses- big or small , palace like hotels or roadside eateries! People depending on daily wages for their food go and stand in queues waiting for the supply of food by generous and philanthropic minded people, institutions and organizations as they do not earn anything to have food these days! No schools, colleges, examinations till June end!

DISTANCING- individual and social is claimed to be one of the effective ways of combating the evil not suffered in the known history of mankind in the recent or distant past.   No face masks, no gloves, no sanitizers!!!!  As of now up to twenty seventh MAY no getting out of home – likely to be extended again and again!

Here is a tribute to this Blogger – deserving or undeserving?????????

Feedback from Mathew Eapen, American blogger’s society member based at New York…

*Dr NVS is the only blogger we have seen in the history of blogging-Doing with out any returns…We have seen many bloggers doing for monitory benefits through advertisement..

His personal blogs are truly great… Earlier the Ginger one has gone viral in bloggers group.. Really a unique blog👍🏼

Now CVK @66…Though I have not seen CVK, I have a clear and vivid picture about him… Great man with a social orientation…Need to appreciate such people..If many CVKs are born , world will be a better place to live*

Rich tribute paid by New York blogger Mathew Eapen, I accept with all humility and thank him for his love and kindness. I only pray God that I continue with greater quality of content and presentation.

I do hope that this Wednesday TALE OF THE BLOGGER Part 40 would have been interesting. Next Sunday Story topic as it is left to the imagination of our esteemed viewers ! Till then Bye!

VISITOR'S VOICE ON “ENVIUS THOUGHTS” Part I – Envius Thoughts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part 27/AND AN APPEAL

This week’s Sunday story in Envius Thoughts carries the VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS where we have been giving the views of our regular viewer and commentator Shri OKR Sivagnanam 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 Sivagnanam is regular in viewing ENVIUS THOUGHTS and sharing with 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 this Part 27 –TWENTY SEVEN . Here we have covered his Reviews up to date from February First..
26/03/2020
Learn to Live – Your post today is timely to remind us of the need to muster enough strength to face the uncertainties presented by the deadly CORONAVIRUS, sweeping the world!
That strength is nothing but our steadfast preparedness to stay indoors, putting a challenge to the virus possessed of an ego – it won’t visit us unless we go after it and invite it!
The authorities are finding it tough to make the man stay at home – of course we are all social beings ever in search of people put there to interact with!
Whatever has come follows a pattern already designed by the “power”, and we have to put up with it and emerge safe and unaffected!
What we have to do in a given situation will come on its own, may be by intuition, and we act accordingly to make any adverse impact at bay!
For, to live is to learn, and abide by the lessons learnt!
24/03/2020
An awareness on the World Tuberculosis Day!
Diseases many that take away the precious human lives!
Prevention is one effective method that may keep us protected from an illness, and save us from their negative effects!
Tuberculosis, playing foul with our respiratory system, is rather an uncontrolled disease, despite various medications that is intended to take care of different stages it presents itself!
Not following the advice of doctors mainly play against strict control of the disease!
In India alone, we are facing one thousand deaths a day due to Tuberculosis, we are told!
A costly affair indeed, that calls for concerted efforts from all the stakeholders – first to reduce the cases, and then gradually to eradicate it altogether!
Easier said than done, but essential to avoid its occurrence, taking into account human fatalities and the resultant economic loss the nations suffer!

24/03/2020
March on……March – a good read!
A hectic month for all those connected with business!
A month that spells “BUSY”,driving one non-stop- not only to achieve the targets, but surpass it even to keep the head tall!
A month that generates enthusiasm of the highest order, not to be generally found in all other months!
Negativity is there, in that any untoward happenings may spoil the plan altogether, as is the case now, with the deadly coronovirus threatening us not to venture out as a precautionary measure to keep us safe and uninfected!

It’s for us to maintain the tempo right from the day one, and be on a top gear when MARCH announces its arrival!
May the end of this MARCH be good in all respects to the entire world!
23/03/2020
Nice to read your post on International Day of Happiness on 20th March!
One may achieve anything in life, and be the centre of attraction, gaining accolades from one and all!
May we adopt HAPPYTALISM as a way of life, and spread its fragrance, wherever we are!
If the achiever finds no time or no reason to enjoy happy occasions, they stand to lose everything they might have gained in the course of their journey of life!
23/03/2020
Your post today on Bhagath Singh’s Martyr Day, focusing on his revolutionary ways in the freedom movement!
He died very much young, and left his mark as a courageous fighter!
May his spirit inspire the young minds to achieve something great – to be of significance to the nation!
22/03/2020
Nice to read your post on World Poetry Day!
For many, like you, all days are Days of Poetry!
Poetic breath fills their lungs and they fill the atmosphere for others to inhale afresh!
The subtle nature of a poem adds beauty to its content and construction, and a poet lives through it eternally!
Glory to the poets who take away the monotony of everyday life by their lavish spread of poetic air!
22/03/2020
A nice post on the World Water Day, with special quotes, using water!
It’s ironic indeed that despite plentiful water available, many go without a drop of it to quench their thirst, not to speak of other needs of water!
Judicious use is the key in our hands to better handle it!
Having something of it left behind is better than being with nothing to turn to – applies equally to water!
Nature is repaying what we in fact have inflicted it with our senseless attitude!
A better understanding even at this stage will help us tide over the problem – of water – effectively!
You were referring to the dwindling scores to your blog posts, but you will agree, not each day passes off in a like manner, and the following day may rise with a lovely shine, promising everything good and favourable!
So, apprehension or misapprehension on your part is quite misplaced and unwarranted!
May a day of hope follow!
18/03/2020
Saint Patrick’s Day – a nice read!
We have been taught to rejoice in giving rather than getting!
A principle of equality we have learnt from the great thinkers from around the world from time immemorial!
Let us minimize the space between Plenty and Poverty, and reach a point where both of them merge together to lose their individual identity!
Peace then is sure to bloom!
18/03/2020
Nice to read your post on Life and Time!
Life and Time indeed our best teachers, and may we hold on to them and get benefited!
“Waste not time to not waste this precious life” is how we can justify our noble birth here!
At no point of life should we be a burden to others, and inversely may we offer our shoulders to the needy in as many possible ways as we can!
Every second that ticks away reminds us that TIME IS RUNNING OUT, and before it’s too late, let us make use of it to leave behind our noteworthy footsteps on the sands of time, never to be washed away by the thing called DEATH!
It’s our life and our time- live and use them to the fullest potential!
08/03/2020
Nice Sunday Story with selective quotes on Solitude!
There’s nothing in this world to give respite to our disppoitments and worries other than loneliness!
It’s a timely balm that takes away pain and suffering instantly!
It’s a self-proclaimed tool that helps in deep introspection leading to the correct option in genuinely finding out a way to answer the questions raised in the mind!
It’s for the solace that one turns to solitude, and not to part ways with our dear and near ones as a means of escape from the reality of life!
Used properly, solitude is the best bet against the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
08/03/2020
Nice to read on Nazareth Ali!
It’s an irony that even the saints are not spared in the cruel hands of evil-minded and beastly humans!
Do they think, the saviours of mankind are against their designs perpetrated on the innocent lives?
Their contention is totally wrong, but on the other hand, saints and seers come to this world to bring an atmosphere of peace and happiness to prevail!
GLORY TO THEM!
06/03/2020
Nice to read your post on Yogananda Guru!
We are an integral part of this materialistic world, but it doesn’t mean that we can go overboard with this, and view everything from the material angle!
The balancing act is to limit its influence in our everyday life, and not allow it to hold us hostage!
The tool that comes in between to rescue us from its evil nature is spirituality that the gurus like Yogananda are set out to propagate amongst the ignorant!
06/03/2020
Nice to read your post on World Wildlife Day!
Every creation on the earth is with a purpose, and must coexist with one another to keep the environment balanced!
Large-scale deforestation efforts on the part of humankind for economic reasons led to shrinkage in forest cover, resulting in encroachment of animal kingdom.
And in search of food, animals turn to our habits, making man-animal conflict a regular feature with no end in sight for its redressal!
So too with plants and trees- that grow in the forest-getting destructed by ulterior motives of man whose main concern is to fulfill their selfish interests!
It’s high time people realised the long term effects of dwindling forest area, and an awareness created for sustaining nature without disturbing the wildlife!
02/03/2020
Nice to read your Sunday Story, carrying the Part 2 “On Prayer”and appending therewith my feedback to Part 1!
Thank you very much.
The contents are very good and they seek our attention to the goodwill they generate!
Yes,faith, and “utmost good faith” at that serves as the foundation for the prayers we make!
A prayer is one that involves genuine appeal for the benefit of humanity, and it’s not a tool in the hands of those selfish individuals who want to have their evil expectations fulfilled at the cost of others’ interests!
Your inclusion of”A Writer’s Prayer, and “A Blogger’s Prayer”, revealing the responsibility of a writer in general to bring nice messages, of course with a liberty of sort,to the reader’s doorsteps!
Your “Sportsman’s Prayer”,depicts the real spirit of a sportsman/woman who is never expected to spread the despicable HATE!
And your “Birthday Prayer”, goes to convey the purpose we have to execute for which we have been made a part of this universe!
Help Ever, Hurt Never, Love All, and Serve All – nice phrases you have employed for the peace and prosperity of society!
We get what we aspire for, provided the path we choose troubles none!
Congrats for the Arivukathhir Award you are conferred!
02/03/2020
A nice post on Kachiyappar Day!
The Hindu religious text, Kandhapuranam on Lord Muruga, is a great contribution to Tamil Literature!
The saints were immensely aware of the efficacy of language in promoting not only their religious ideas, but culture as well obtaining during their period of history!
Remembering them on the day they were born is in a way refreshing the past, having the unsuspecting relevance to the present and future!
02/03/2020
Your post on Arch David is a nice read!
All should be well – this is the guiding principle all religions profess!
Religion?
A conveyance that takes us to the place we want to reach!
The choice is ours to prefer one to the other!
It’s all our inclination to embrace and abide by a certain “faith!”
Here, there’s no need for any external force to exert on us, and direct against our mindset!
For, all roads safely take us to the final destination to make us happy and content!
28/02/2020
Kasturiba Memorial Day – a nice read for the day!
The “Team Freedom Movement,”was behind the memorable success, with
M K Gandhi in the forefront!
The fruits of their labour we’re enjoying, and it’s incumbent on us to appreciate the value of democracy by solemnly adhering to its principles!
What we’re sowing today will one day be gigantic for the generations to come to witness, wonder, and feel proud about!
Let us be thankful to our great leaders who made us breathe a fresh air and relieve us of “suffocation!”
27/02/2020
A nice gesture with all your blessings to those students appearing for the ensuing Board Examinations!
Yes, examinations will haunt us, if we entertain fear for its arrival!
A nice clue you gave – preparation from day one – this in fact will show the ghost the door, and allow the Almighty to enter and shower the fortunes of success!
All the best to the examinees to come out with flying colours!
27/02/2020
A nice post on Ash Wednesday!
Belief and faith play an important life in the life of mortals, who one day or the other leaves this earth forever!
The mortal nature of humans has a lesson to share with us that our short sojourn here should be utilised for the good of humanity, and not unceremoniously wasted!
The Ash Wednesday is to remind the followers, on the importance of repentance for the sins, knowingly or unknowingly committed, by putting on their foreheads the mark of a “cross” with the palm ashes by the priest!
The process symbolises the “dusty” nature of the humans, sooner or later to lick the dust, and become dusty ashes in the end!
In short, this ritual is but a warning intended for the sinners to mend their wayward behaviour!
25/02/2020
A nice post on World Scouts Day with a nice photo of yours in the scouts dress!
Scouts – a great movement, across the globe in the service of society!
An opportunity at the young age to face life with confidence!
A discipline-builder that instills patriotism in the minds of the cadre!
May patriotism prevail over nationalism, and the world may prosper in the face of obstacles that come its way!
25/02/2020
INVISIBLE WIND – comes alive through your words!
Just because it’s invisible, can we underestimate its power?
An invincible power that equates with that of the Almighty!
A power that operates from behind, but its effect is discernable!
Our very sustenance is a question mark, without the indelible ‘mark’ of the wind in its many forms!
If it’s calm and reasonable, it’s soothing for all, and if it tends to go violent, there’s no escape from its total destruction!
GLORY TO THE WIND!
22/02/2020
Nice of reading your post on Central Excise Day!
Without revenue, the affairs of a nation cannot be conducted in the manner expected of it!
The Central Board of Excise and Custom, day in and day out, through the tireless work of the personnel, put in their efforts in not only mobilising what is due to the government exchequer, but also in the process, in booking those who go anti-national, and meting out the due punishment for deciance and non-compliance!
May the stakeholders act responsibly for the good of the nation!
25/02/2020
A nice Sunday Story on PRAYER!
A prayer by the cancer patient, and the other one by the carpenter- both are revealing!
Nice description of your life journey with prayer occupying the central role!
And about your prayer for the ENVIUS THOUGHTS to spread its wings far and wide, it’s quite normal for a person with a great vision in mind!
Last, but not the least, your prayer not for yourself, but for the prosperity of the whole world, is simply great!
25/02/2020
Rough and Gentle,”at the same time – very nice attributes of waves that rise and fall, powered by the wind!
We’re taught against building castles on the sand due to waves of reality in wait attacking in no time!
It’s favourable when the waves bring to the shores what’s lying beneath the ocean!
Are we not supposed to accept with equanimity, when the same waves engulf the beautiful pebbles on the beach to take them back to the ocean?
Of course, there’s every chance that we’ll get back something more attractive than the ones we lost to the furious waves!
Fear of waves won’t allow one to venture into the ocean, and they inevitably let go of an opportunity to exhibit their prowess!
And likewise, for fear of failure we lack the will to climb and set foot on a new horizon!
Waves act in accordance with the pull and push of the nature, and so we must, against the odds to succeed in life!
21/02/2020
A nice tribute to Ramakrishna paramhansa on his birthday!
The problems humanity is facing today are many that man seeks redressal through the spiritual path!
The enlightened sages and philosophers guide us to travel inwardly and meet with solutions baffled them long!
We are part of a fast-paced living, that has its unbeaten stress level, making us vulnerable to intolerance which is being addressed to by the sages like Paramahamsa!
Mission in his name continues to serve the spiritual needs of humanity, and provides a meaningful life to those who were drifted away from the accepted norms of life by choice or chance!

A nice post on JK!
His views on education should have an impact on the society, considering the holistic approach he had to the subject!
An individual should be his own making, and not to be influenced by external factors!
The idea of “education” should change from being just the tool of a “means of living,” to one of complete transformation of societal members!
The society has the responsibility to not enforce a particular pattern on the individuals to live away the life, and allowing us to righteously move along the directions our minds had to dictate!
In short, we remain what we are, and from there to evolve humane, and be of service to humanity!

nice post on Anandamayi Ma in your IS series!
Saints and Seers are a class of its own, who always had that distinction of spreading peace, joy, and happiness among the people!
Unparalleled mission is their universal language, which is understandable by one and all!
May we take their cream, and marinate our food of life for ourselves and others as well!
So with this we end this Sunday Story. We shall meet tomorrow as usual through https//nvsr.wordpress.com. Till then good bye!

HERE IS AN APPEAL FOR A NOBLE CAUSE

OMNIPOTENT CORONA has its own impact on Sevalaya’s sources!!

The Institution is run on the donations received by the well wishers and philanthropists from all over the world. But one will agree no amount is too much for the services being extended in more and more domains, there is a constant need for flow of funds and the intending donors may help the TEMPLE OF SERVICE to the extent possible.

“ABOUT 1000 LIVES ARE TO BE FED TWICE AT LEAST EVERY DAY”

  1. Donation Payment Mode: There are various payment options.  This can be had from their website:  Within India:  http://sevalaya.org/support/

For donors abroad                                                          :   http://sevalaya.org/support/abroad-donation/

Naturally one is tempted to do something for a great organization like SEVALAYA the TEMPLE OF SERVICE. I end this Sunday story with an appeal as made by Mahakavi Bharathiyar, already posted in the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com  in ten parts under the title “ ON THE PRETTY PETALS OF THE WHITE LOTUS!  வெள்ளைத் தாமரை! and that is quite relevant now in the matters referred in the write up.

In Tamil:

“நிதி மிகுந்தவர் பொற்குவை தாரீர்;
நிதிகு றைந்தவர் காசுகள் தாரீர்;
அதுவு மற்றவர் வாய்ச்சொல் அருளீர்!
ஆண்மை யாளர் உழைப்பினை நல்கீர்!
மதுரத் தேன்மொழி மாதர்க ளெல்லாம்
வாணி பூசைக் குரியன் பேசீர்!
எதுவும் நல்கியிங் கெவ்வகை யானும்
இப்பெருந் தொழில் நாட்டுவம் வாரீர்!

While rendered in English:

“With the wholesome wealth donate in gold
Less fortunate give money enough
Those without these, oral support you give
Those with health strong, offer efforts great
Women with voice melodious
Sing in praise of Mother!
In every way and every means
Engage in this service pretty!
Dwells the Mother of knowledge and power
On the pretty petals of lovely lotus!”.

I appeal to my ESTEEMED VIEWERS to HELP!

TALE OF A BLOGGER 36

Image result for photos of N V Subbaraman-Envius Thoughts"

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let us have a look at the overall views since the last Tale 35.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 CVK Advocate on Envius Thoughts!

Mr. CVK Advocate with his pet ginger

CVK Advocate- Mr. C.Vijayakumar, a leading Advocate in Madras High Court is the former important Office bearer of the great mini India JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR, where about five thousand people from East and West, North and South are living in perfect peace and harmony, promoted by my Alma Mater Life Insurance Corporation of India where I learnt the art and science of Life and living, is my co resident. Advocate CVK takes a lot of interest in ENVIUS THOUGHTS and makes his scholarly observations, which I feel must be shared with my esteemed viewers and hence here is this week’s Sunday Story-(1792nd post).

Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru was a very tall world leader. Most modern in his out looks and molded with scientific temper. His “Glimpses of World History” will always remain as a classic book on History educating all. Politicians with medieval views only attempt to damage the image of Nehru. But they cannot succeed. He was one of the tall leader of Indian Freedom Movement.

Entropy shouldn’t be a deterrent to a productive, meaningful life

Thank you Mr. Suresh Mathew, for your kind information… If we love all humans& living beings, nature, that will be a solution for bringing world peace..😄😄

Very happy to see Mr. Suresh Mathew is projected , in “Suresh Mathew on Envius Thoughts”. He is a very good friend of mine and a nice fellow being of our colony, always taking a right view& stand on issues. In modern days of colony life, people living in multi- storied colonies like our colony ” Jeevan Bhīma Nagar”, we have to rise above race, religion, caste etc. From the day one, when we entered the colony ,we have been promoting a peaceful & happy life among residents with mutual cooperation. That is the way to lead a wonderful life .Our Association “JBNFOWA” is fully committed to the welfare of all.We have evolved ourselves as a model to colony life. This colony is “Mini India” setting an example to whole of India to lead a peaceful life of “Unity in Diversity”. My sincere thanks to Mr.Subbaraman & Mr. Suresh Mathew to activating me to respond.😄😄

On World Kindness Day 13/11.
Love and kindness are never wasted… Human kindness has never weakened stamina or softened the fiber of free people… Mother Theresa in the initial stage of formation of missionaries of charity approached one of the richest Indian in Kolkata. When she extended her hand for help, that person spitted on her hand. She has shown other hand too and said graciously that I am receiving it for the lost and least people in Kolkata. Kindness to the core. Kindness never fails. The man who spit on her hand later changed his mind and gave an open cheque book endorsed by him to her so that she can take any amount of money from his account at any point of time. This is truly the victory of kindness. This person is none other than the founder of mighty Birla group G D Birla. Kudos to NVS for kindling a kindness thought in the morning.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ESSENTIAL

Nice thoughts..All points are inspiring..
Where we  meet the people with cynicism and doubts and those who tell us that we can’t, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of some of the people: Yes We Can improve the environment.

This much is this story. We shall meet tomorrow as usual. Till then GOOD BYE!

MISSION SUNDAY October 20th.

Image result for mission sunday 2019

This Blogger and his Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com  with an overall view score of TWO LAKHS AND SEVENTEEN THOUSAND  from more than two hundred countries is an UNIVERSALIST and an INDIAN FIRST AND INDIAN LAST!

We have Missions and Missions-organizations to develop the society and its people with the ultimate objective of ensuring peace and harmony, pleasure and prosperity, joy and health. Sri Ramakrishna Mission, Chinmaya Mission, Sai Mission, World Christian Missions, UN Missions, Space Missions, Nasa  Missions!!!!!!!!

Today October 20th is MISSION SUNDAY-an important Mission day for Christianity all over the world.

World Mission Sunday is on the penultimate Sunday in October each year. It’s the one Sunday in the year when the entire global Church comes together to support mission. And every single donation from these worldwide Masses goes to support churches, hospitals, schools and vocations in countries where the Church is new, young or poor.

Every Catholic community, in every country, sends a powerful message of faith, hope and love on this special day.

This is their chance to show love and solidarity to the global Church family. Through prayers, they support missionaries everywhere in spreading the Good News. And by donating they respond to Christ’s call to feed the hungry and clothe the naked.

Today. Tomorrow. Together.

All Christians are proud to be the Pope’s chosen charity for mission. Mission works with the Mission family around the world to bring the church together in compassion and communion. Together, they coordinate World Mission Sunday and provide mission dioceses with the essential support they need to become self-sufficient.

They work with local bishops, churches and missionary congregations, to distribute resources and funds fairly on the basis of need. And all of donations go directly from the entire world including England and Wales to the bishops in the mission territories: local church directly helping local church!

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS FRANCIS
FOR WORLD MISSION DAY 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

For the month of October 2019, I have asked that the whole Church revive her missionary awareness and commitment as we commemorate the centenary of the Apostolic Letter Maximum Illud of Pope Benedict XV (30 November 1919). Its farsighted and prophetic vision of the apostolate has made me realize once again the importance of renewing the Church’s missionary commitment and giving fresh evangelical impulse to her work of preaching and bringing to the world the salvation of Jesus Christ, who died and rose again.

The title of the present Message is the same as that of October’s Missionary Month: Baptized and Sent: The Church of Christ on Mission in the World. Celebrating this month will help us first to rediscover the missionary dimension of our faith in Jesus Christ, a faith graciously bestowed on us in baptism. Our filial relationship with God is not something simply private, but always in relation to the Church. Through our communion with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we, together with so many of our other brothers and sisters, are born to new life. This divine life is not a product for sale – we do not practise proselytism – but a treasure to be given, communicated and proclaimed: that is the meaning of mission. We received this gift freely and we share it freely , without excluding anyone. God wills that all people be saved by coming to know the truth and experiencing his mercy through the ministry of the Church, the universal sacrament of salvation

The Church is on mission in the world. Faith in Jesus Christ enables us to see all things in their proper perspective, as we view the world with God’s own eyes and heart. Hope opens us up to the eternal horizons of the divine life that we share. Charity, of which we have a foretaste in the sacraments and in fraternal love, impels us to go forth to the ends of the earth . A Church that presses forward to the farthest frontiers requires a constant and ongoing missionary conversion. How many saints, how many men and women of faith, witness to the fact that this unlimited openness, this going forth in mercy, is indeed possible and realistic, for it is driven by love and its deepest meaning as gift, sacrifice and gratuitousness! The man who preaches God must be a man of God

This missionary mandate touches us personally: I am a mission, always; you are a mission, always; every baptized man and woman is a mission. People in love never stand still: they are drawn out of themselves; they are attracted and attract others in turn; they give themselves to others and build relationships that are life-giving. As far as God’s love is concerned, no one is useless or insignificant. Each of us is a mission to the world, for each of us is the fruit of God’s love. Even if parents can betray their love by lies, hatred and infidelity, God never takes back his gift of life. From eternity he has destined each of his children to share in his divine and eternal life

This life is bestowed on us in baptism, which grants us the gift of faith in Jesus Christ, the conqueror of sin and death. Baptism gives us rebirth in God’s own image and likeness, and makes us members of the Body of Christ, which is the Church. In this sense, baptism is truly necessary for salvation for it ensures that we are always and everywhere sons and daughters in the house of the Father, and never orphans, strangers or slaves. What in the Christian is a sacramental reality – whose fulfillment is found in the Eucharist – remains the vocation and destiny of every man and woman in search of conversion and salvation. For baptism fulfils the promise of the gift of God that makes everyone a son or daughter in the Son. We are children of our natural parents, but in baptism we receive the origin of all fatherhood and true motherhood: no one can have God for a Father who does not have the Church for a mother.

Our mission, then, is rooted in the fatherhood of God and the motherhood of the Church. The mandate given by the Risen Jesus at Easter is inherent in Baptism: as the Father has sent me, so I send you, filled with the Holy Spirit, for the reconciliation of the world . This mission is part of our identity as Christians; it makes us responsible for enabling all men and women to realize their vocation to be adoptive children of the Father, to recognize their personal dignity and to appreciate the intrinsic worth of every human life, from conception until natural death. Today’s rampant secularism, when it becomes an aggressive cultural rejection of God’s active fatherhood in our history, is an obstacle to authentic human fraternity, which finds expression in reciprocal respect for the life of each person. Without the God of Jesus Christ, every difference is reduced to a baneful threat, making impossible any real fraternal acceptance and fruitful unity within the human race.

The universality of the salvation offered by God in Jesus Christ led Benedict XV to call for an end to all forms of nationalism and ethnocentrism, or the merging of the preaching of the Gospel with the economic and military interests of the colonial powers. In his Apostolic Letter Maximum Illud, the Pope noted that the Church’s universal mission requires setting aside exclusivist ideas of membership in one’s own country and ethnic group. The opening of the culture and the community to the salvific newness of Jesus Christ requires leaving behind every kind of undue ethnic and ecclesial introversion. Today too, the Church needs men and women who, by virtue of their baptism, respond generously to the call to leave behind home, family, country, language and local Church, and to be sent forth to the nations, to a world not yet transformed by the sacraments of Jesus Christ and his holy Church. By proclaiming God’s word, bearing witness to the Gospel and celebrating the life of the Spirit, they summon to conversion, baptize and offer Christian salvation, with respect for the freedom of each person and in dialogue with the cultures and religions of the peoples to whom they are sent. The missio ad gentes, which is always necessary for the Church, thus contributes in a fundamental way to the process of ongoing conversion in all Christians. Faith in the Easter event of Jesus; the ecclesial mission received in baptism; the geographic and cultural detachment from oneself and one’s own home; the need for salvation from sin and liberation from personal and social evil: all these demand the mission that reaches to the very ends of the earth.

The providential coincidence of this centenary year with the celebration of the Special Synod on the Churches in the Amazon allows me to emphaze how the mission entrusted to us by Jesus with the gift of his Spirit is also timely and necessary for those lands and their peoples. A renewed Pentecost opens wide the doors of the Church, in order that no culture remain closed in on itself and no people cut off from the universal communion of the faith. No one ought to remain closed in self-absorption, in the self-referentiality of his or her own ethnic and religious affiliation. The Easter event of Jesus breaks through the narrow limits of worlds, religions and cultures, calling them to grow in respect for the dignity of men and women, and towards a deeper conversion to the truth of the Risen Lord who gives authentic life to all.

Here I am reminded of the words of Pope Benedict XVI at the beginning of the meeting of Latin American Bishops at Aparecida, Brazil, in 2007. I would like to repeat these words and make them my own: “Yet what did the acceptance of the Christian faith mean for the nations of Latin America and the Caribbean? For them, it meant knowing and welcoming Christ, the unknown God whom their ancestors were seeking, without realizing it, in their rich religious traditions. Christ is the Saviour for whom they were silently longing. It also meant that they received, in the waters of Baptism, the divine life that made them children of God by adoption; moreover, they received the Holy Spirit who came to make their cultures fruitful, purifying them and developing the numerous seeds that the incarnate Word had planted in them, thereby guiding them along the paths of the Gospel… The Word of God, in becoming flesh in Jesus Christ, also became history and culture. The utopia of going back to breathe life into the pre-Columbian religions, separating them from Christ and from the universal Church, would not be a step forward: indeed, it would be a step back. In reality, it would be a retreat towards a stage in history anchored in the past”.

We entrust the Church’s mission to Mary our Mother. In union with her Son, from the moment of the Incarnation the Blessed Virgin set out on her pilgrim way. She was fully involved in the mission of Jesus, a mission that became her own at the foot of the Cross: the mission of cooperating, as Mother of the Church, in bringing new sons and daughters of God to birth in the Spirit and in faith.

I would like to conclude with a brief word about the Pontifical Mission Societies, already proposed in Maximum Illud as a missionary resource. The Pontifical Mission Societies serve the Church’s universality as a global network of support for the Pope in his missionary commitment by prayer, the soul of mission, and charitable offerings from Christians throughout the world. Their donations assist the Pope in the evangelization efforts of particular Churches (the Pontifical Society for the Propagation of the Faith), in the formation of local clergy (the Pontifical Society of Saint Peter the Apostle), in raising missionary awareness in children (Pontifical Society of Missionary Childhood) and in encouraging the missionary dimension of Christian faith (Pontifical Missionary Union). In renewing my support for these Societies, I trust that the extraordinary Missionary Month of October 2019 will contribute to the renewal of their missionary service to my ministry.

To men and women missionaries, and to all those who, by virtue of their baptism, share in any way in the mission of the Church, I send my heartfelt blessing.

Thus ends this week’s Sunday story and we shall proceed as usual tomorrow. Till then GOOD BYE!
