September 4th-ONAM FESTIVAL

Third biggest Religion HINDUISM indeed is great
All its festivals, principles and practices – a treat
Infusing oneness and unity, peace and poise in all
Trying to make the people joyous and happy quite tall!

Festivals an effective tool-many they are in all states
Today is ONAM-great festival of Kerala state
God’s own country-Festival of rice harvest, Rain Flowers
Prayer offered to Mahabali whose grace is showered!

Here is an ONAM special song in Malayalam

“Maveli nadu vaneedum kalam,
manusharellarum onnupole
amodhathode vasikkum kalam
apathangarkkumottillathanum
kallavum illa chathiyumilla
ellolamilla polivachanam
kallapparayum cherunazhiyum
kallatharangal mattonnumilla
adhikal vyadhikalonnumilla
balamaranangal kelppanilla”

which can be broadly translated into

“When Maveli ruled the land,
All the people were equal.
And people were joyful and merry;
They were all free from harm.
There was neither anxiety nor sickness,
Deaths of children were unheard of,
There were no lies,
There was neither theft nor deceit,
And no one was false in speech either.
Measures and weights were right;
No one cheated or wronged his neighbor.
When Maveli ruled the land,
All the people formed one casteless race”

Sacred River Godavari

Rivers –big or small- long or short- their tributaries
All sacred gifts of Almighty through its arm of nature
They indeed the source of life and living for all beings
Numerous are they deemed holy and revered as Gods!

Mekong, Danube, Columbia, Rhine, Orinoco
Volge and Thames- great and holy rivers of the world
People have to be grateful to the Almighty- Lord!

Thiruvalluvar the great Saint Poet of Tamilnadu rightly
Proclaims the world cannot thrive sans water boldly.
Where is agriculture, good crops, food and life of all
Our sacred rivers seven- sure source of life for all.

  HAIKU ON “NATURE!”

(1)

Nature beautiful

Men blind and have no appetite

And waste life in full!

(2)

Nature showers joy

Most ungrateful men destroy

Her love proves a toy!

(3)

Birds strike chord of peace

Love and live with nature well

Do we live with ease?

(4)

Sure woods are lovely

A great creation of God

Man kills brutally.

(5)

Nature binds us all

Until the ungrateful men

Push and make us fall!

(6)

Sandy beach God’s gift

All to enjoy and protect

None has right to drift!

(7)

Great lake beautiful

With vast expanse of water

Nature bountiful!

(8)

Yes, surging waves surge

In the lake – gift of nature

“Serve the world” they urge!

(9)

Cold breeze the waves bring

To all sans fear or favor

As water from spring!

(10)

Nature God’s great gift

Sure to  be nurtured by all

The world to move swift!

Beautiful view of OOTY LAKE- nature at its best!.

The “Chundan vallams”-long snake boats sail in the waters-a great play
Competition rigorous- rowers over hundred show their skills
Sense of unity, alliance and sportsmanship displayed in full!

Great union with nature and to enjoy its beauty in pound!
