Major Dhyan Chand-hockey legend got three Olympic golds 1928-36
Our great and holy Motherland-India that is Bharath
Known for its overall progress and success in all fields great
Games and sports not excluded for us to feel proud of and be proud
National Sports Day was yesterday twenty ninth flying beyond cloud!
Great Olympic Champion, hockey legend Dhyan Chand born this day-
Rightly observed as National Sports day in his honor-great day!
From villages of India sports persons blossom many
Amass medals in the ongoing Meet so far more than fifty!
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,
amodhathode vasikkum kalam
kallavum illa chathiyumilla
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”

Men blind and have no appetite
And waste life in full!
Nature showers joy
Most ungrateful men destroy
Her love proves a toy!
Birds strike chord of peace
Love and live with nature well
Do we live with ease?
Sure woods are lovely
A great creation of God
Man kills brutally.
Nature binds us all
Until the ungrateful men
Push and make us fall!
Sandy beach God’s gift
All to enjoy and protect
None has right to drift!
Great lake beautiful
With vast expanse of water
Yes, surging waves surge
In the lake – gift of nature
“Serve the world” they urge!
Cold breeze the waves bring
To all sans fear or favor
As water from spring!
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!.
God’s own country endowed with natural beauty – great creation
Vast back waters, groves, mountainous terrain-golden recreation
Nature loving people from far and wide – magnetic attraction
Great Kerala- its people language, culture – pride of the nation!
Annual boat race- August second Saturday great festival
Named after the legend Jawaharlal Nehru- nature lover
In Punnamada lake near Alappuza a great carnival
For Kuttanad villagers- occasion, greeted as flower!
Named as “Nehru Trophy Boat Race” –“vallam kali”-Kerala’s day
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!
Folk dance, loud drum beats and songs very special for the occasion
Sixty third year-today’s race goes on sans break as a grand function
With increasing interest and participation all around
Great union with nature and to enjoy its beauty in pound!
