LITERACY – WHY and WHAT?

International Literacy Day 2020 – National Awareness Days Events Calendar 2020 – UK & US

Though alive, one is dead sans knowledge, wisdom through literacy
Unfortunate large population remain illiterate-pity
Efforts on war footing need of the day to provide literacy
Especially in the most countries adopting democracy!

Today is International Literacy Day as declared
By UNESCO in nineteen hundred sixty five-to be observed
To tell all- of the fact that one in five adults not literate
Two thirds of illiterates are women- estimate moderate!

Future of the family and society is at stake if allowed
On this day very important, all responsible be advised
To provide literacy to all at any cost-Government
And individuals to take up efforts honest- permanent!

N V Subbaraman

Prosperous Tomorrow

Amidst
Today’s
And till this day’s
Pain and pangs
Sufferings and sorrows
Falls and failures
Poverty and penury
I do see a
Silver lining
Bright tomorrow
Absolutely bright
Based purely on
Efforts and efficacy
Of hopes and prayer!
Tomorrow
A bright and prosperous tomorrow
Seen through my inward eyes
And its melodies
Heard through my inward ears!

Chinese Simplified Version

[印度]NV苏巴拉曼

繁荣的明天

今天的
和直到今天的
疼痛与痛苦
磨难与悲伤
挫折与失败
清贫和穷困中
我确实看到了
一线希望
美好的明天
绝对的光明
完全地基于
努力和奋斗
期盼吧!祈祷吧!
明天
一个光明繁荣的明天
透过我内心的眼睛
它的旋律
从我的内耳传来!

Always helps to lead a peaceful life!

WORLD BOOK DAY! April 23rd.

World Book Day | Teaching Resources

World BOOK Day is this day-Twenty Third April-Are you able to hear
Many  mocking  derisively at the books and readers who find pleasure?
These people know  not how to spend time usefully and worthwhile!
Books provide knowledge to all- I  am not concerned I have other sources!!!

Unfortunately placed is our society today
Where book culture has become culture of yesterday
Fast moving times deny the habit of reading
No time to stand and stare at the great books for enjoying!

Writers regret, publishers find it hard to go ahead
Despite Book fairs increasing and sales soaring above head
Habit of reading by youngsters declining fast and strong
Make our system change, parents aware of their wards!

Days of the ebooks are, we are aware and welcome too
World is worried on the decline of book culture as such
Bless us my God! Restore the noble culture in all
Writers to serve, publishers to prosper, and society stand tall!

Thursday is Teacher GURU day!

Gurur bramma gurur vishnu gururdevo maheswara

Gurur satchaath parabramma thasmai sri gurave namaha.

Guru is Bramma, he is Vishnu, he is Lord Shiva, Guru is indeed parabramma. I bow to Guru.

Let Him give us all the knowledge through the books!

Reading indeed is a must for every one for a successful life.
Reading what, when, and how?- questions natural to be addressed by all!
Reading trashes never helps at any stage at any place.at any time.
Reading what that builds up nobility and provides knowledge fine!

Today the twelfth of November is YOUNG READERS DAY- a day to cherish
To start practicing reading at young age! sure to be a nice habit!
Young Readers Day was co-founded in nineteen eighty nine by Pizza Hut
And the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress great move!

This blogger has a bad habit of reading nothing extra in life!
Upto college-study the books needed, while in office the manuals
And circulars to administer the office!!! None after retirement!
Only reading from age seven to seventy nine is THE HINDU-news paper!

BOOK LOVERS DAY November 2nd.

“Tell me who your friends are, I shall tell you who you are”-old time question
Tell me what books you read, I shall tell you who you are” modified question!
“Books are the best companions” and hence those who love books are to be loved
November Second today is rightly devoted to book lovers
And aptly called “BOOK LOVERS DAY”! A day to cherish by all book lovers!

Money and time not a factor for great book lovers as we see them
For them no food, no play, no recreation -all they need books on hand!
“PUSTHAKAM HASTHA LAKSHANAM” is a saying meaning book are
The ornaments in the hands of the holders! Wide readers they are!

People love reading books; reading a good hobby-it is relaxing
And entertaining, it sharpens the mind, reduces stress, gives readers
New information, helps them gain new perspectives—making them more
Empathetic. qualities helped create many book lovers throughout
The world, making it fit to observe a Book Lovers Day- today! .

Books indeed are our companions great making us knowledgeable
Our assets and treasures by all means till our life time available
Great habit of book reading is noble lasts from cradle to the grave
Let us therefore cultivate the habit in the children here and now!

All have our favorite books from childhood, that set the tone for our
Imaginations, that bring back memories of home when we remember them,
Some small comfort when we run our fingers over the well-worn and
Loved spines of the stories of our youth. Lovely experience sure!

Investing in books more valuable than in dress and ornaments
Ever lasting wealth that can be bequeathed to our heirs later!
Second April today is “Children’s Book Day” a great day
To discuss at home withy all and start a home library fast!

NATIONAL BIOGRAPHERS DAY-16th May.

Image result for National Biographers day 2018
Many a flower blossom sans seen by any and wither
In wilderness alas!God’s wonderful creations better
To be seen and enjoyed by all for its scent and color
man must have eyes and nose-ears and tongue to spread!

Many an unknown poet and author write and write all times
Keep them unread by any! They die unwept, unsung and unhonored!
Biographers are the need of the day to bring them out to open
National Biographers Day is today-sixteenth May!

A day to admire them who teach us about the famous people
Give us an impression into their lives via the biographies.
Biographies for children is the best way to explain history
Of people and their accomplishments in life.Day to honor!

Tell me who your friends are, I shall tell  you who you are
Tell me the books you read, I shall tell you who you are!
Questions of those great days ringing loud  in our ears
Two noble matters that shape a person for years!

Reading of books or hearing at still younger age
Sure will make a child grow in a way to gain an image
Schools and elders to inject the habit of reading
To last all through the life on the road of prospering!

Today is the INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S BOOK DAY
Second April of each year- for the elders to pay
Proper attention and get the quality books for the age
And infuse the great and noble practice at that stage!
