21st June WORLD MUSIC DAY

Carnatic  Music Legend Smt.  M S Subbulakshmi enthralled UN by her divine performance.

Music in India is ever deemed divine quite right
Vocal and instrumental ennobles and enthuses tight
Young or old, rich or poor, humans or animals and plants
All respond to this Divine art- Goddess Saraswathi grants!

Beyond religion, creed and caste, language and people- all love
Stress reliever, tension blower, health developer- above
Everything gives peace and joy, make the souls unite
May all in the world observe with full verve and appetite!

Hundred and fifty countries all over observe the day
Make the people take to the art and science of Music great!

A nice post on Earth Day to remind us of our duty to the Mother Earth!
It’s all because of our indifferent attitude towards our divine earth, that we’ve all landed in troubles more and more!
Global warming is one such issue that needs our focus to enjoy a climate, nice and beautiful!
It’s not that we’re all illiterates to the extent of neglecting the environment ;
Rather, we utterly lack the will to keep it properly!
A change for the better is the need of the hour.
Let us resolve this EARTH DAY to make friendly with NATURE, and avoid its wrath to better our lives on this earth!

27/4/17
An amusingly nice post you wrote about on National Pigs -in-a-Blanket Day!
Everything we do in the course of our mundane life may ensure a society, both interesting and peaceful!
A world sans FUN is not an ideal place to live in!
Fun in its various ways and forms is a major contributor in enrichment of our daily life, and ‘National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day’, serves to remind us and make an otherwise dull and monotonous life, a spicy and enjoyable one!
The various dishes partaken in countries like USA and Canada on the occasion lend to an element of amusement that qualifies what’s called fun!

21/4/17
What a nice poem it’s on Universe- a chariot on the move under Part 35!
The earth we live in is illuminated by the bright rays of the powerful LIGHT!
The fact that even the all-powerful light has learnt the art of obedience (due to the force of gravitation, of course), may be the reminder for us to practice obedience without fail!
Does the LIGHT stop with light alone? – no indeed!
LIGHT also provides us with heat, the energy needed for sustaining our life!
LIGHT helps in CREATION, PROTECTION, and DESTRUCTION- the ordained functions of God, the Almighty- to keep the Universe going nice!

21/4/17
Nice to read your poem on World Innovation and Creativity Day that’s observed across the globe today!
Man proves his inherent potential in many ways than one creatively and differently to benefit the society of which he’s an inseparable part!
In stead of following the routine path , man finds it a thrill to find a way entirely new, at the same time serving the purpose of reaching the destination safely in time!
The power of innovation, he’s credited with is sought to be put in practical use by the people for their benefit;
For, anything new and different should not be for the sake of change or whatever it’s!
Creativity has its application in life to a great extent by clearly facilitating solutions for various problems encountered by the mankind!
The God-granted imagination is readily with the man to accomplish what he has planned to do effectively!
On this special occasion, may we make it a point to think out of the box and land in innovations aplenty for the society as a whole to prosper!

20/4/17
A beautiful poem on Universe-Part 34!
The role of LIGHT to the Universe is crucial indeed that we cannot imagine a world bereft of light!
The whole of our life depends on the power of light that dances to the tunes of Universe!
Light makes us wonder through the journey it undertakes uninterruptedly!
Not to speak of the awe-inspiring rainbow that presents itself as an arch mammoth across the sky!
And we witness the Universe that dances beautifully, and it’s bright, thanks to the shining light!

18/4/17
Your World Heritage Day Post today reminds one of the importance of maintaining the symbols of heritage for all the days to come!
Keeping tourism and its development in mind, the UNO has rightly come out with the theme :
‘Cultural heritage and Sustainable Tourism’.
Heritage speaks volumes on the history of a nation and the world ;
It seeks to serve the purposes sought to be achieved by culture and civilization!
And our country can boast of such monuments in Mahabalipuram, near chennai, Big Temple of Thanhavur, and Taj Mahal, to name a few!
The architectural extravaganza of these sites and others treats to the aesthetic sense of the viewers, and remain ever green in their minds!
The workmanship involved in such creations is quite unparalleled, and it’s all the more essential to keep them in tact for the posterity!

17/4/17
Nice to go through your Happy Tamil New Year Day post on 14/4/17.
Whether we fulfill our New Year ‘resolutions’ or not, we wish to run a peaceful life throughout!
A decision taken in a state of emotions does not carry the weight it deserves, and hence most likely it meets with failure!
To make our life meaningful, we ought to be instrumental in rendering the lives of others nearby joyous and peaceful in one way or the other!
This should be our tasks routine, and not limited to special occasions like Tamil New Year Day or Good Friday!
Of course festivals are the times for a nice and memorable get-together of people divided by time and distance!
May nobility beautify our social interactions and help remain righteous on all occasions without waiting for special days to direct us to be so!

On your Journey to Freedom – Part 2 on 4/4/17:
We were a nation known for its beauty and abundance, and no wonder, many foreign countries wanted to plunder the riches available!
The last in line to invade us was the East India Company of Britain ;
The war of independence was really a long drawn process, and yet it was possible for us to get relieved of its clutches successfully at the end!
The hardships otherwise faced by our leaders didn’t deter them from pursuing the cause of freedom!
It turned out to be an one-point agenda, and the focus was total, as there was nothing else to distract our freedom fighters!
The journey of our freedom thus was well on its track, hopeful of surely reaching the destination!
13/4/17
A beautiful poem from you on Sri Rama Navami on 5/4/17!
Many of us unfortunately forget the purpose of our living on this earth;
Making others happy and peaceful should be our mission, and whatever we perform in the course of our life should aim to fulfill this singular task successfully!
Self-centred activities make us animals that in general do not care about the harms perpetuated by them out of sheer ignorance!
Lack of righteousness on our part takes away the good attributes that make a man’s life meaningful, and the very purpose for which we are created is not served, thereby not justifying our presence at all!
And it’s right to recall Lord Rama and His noble qualities that stand the test of time, guiding the humans in leading a life that’s of use to others!

86000 scores- a great news!
11/4/17
Very nice and thoughtful of you for having launched the new series with the title: Journey to Indian Freedom from 3/4/17, particularly for circulation among the youngsters who may not be aware of the struggle that culminated in the freedom for our nation!
The size of the country coupled with diversity made it highly difficult to keep the flocks together for a harmonious living of all the people!
We have a culture and civilization that we can rightly boast of, and your efforts now to make it known to the present generation through a description of the fight we’ve had with the British Empire will go a long way in understanding the sacrifices and sufferings undergone by our freedom fighters under the able leadership of Mahatma Gandhi!
Children today must be aware of the various stages of the process of independence, to make themselves ready not only to guard the hard- won freedom, but to conduct/participate in the affairs of the nation in a proper way!
A right endeavor on your part to spread the knowledge needed on this score!

3/4/17
Part 16 of your Tale as a Blogger, dated 26/3/17 carried nicely your recollections of the viewers to Part. 15 appeared earlier, as also a nice story shared by your journalist son on the demise of Ashoka Mitran, the versatile writer and novelist recently!

To Mr. Prasad, your poetic journey is a non-stop feat!
For Mr. Muthu Ayyar, the review was not less than a documentary!
Mr. Uthayamurthi opined, given the determination, age was not a criterion to make any achievement!
And now, my submission too does not deviate from the above observations!

Your son’s encounter with the writer Ashoka Mitran is an interesting read, particularly his reference to the calmness exhibited by the latter, during his ‘bike ride!
And a nice recalling of what the writer had said of a good writing!
Creating harmony is a great virtue of a writer, who is conscious of his/her duty to the society!

As you were in the top managerial position before retirement, you are as an editor, definitely going to create an impact on the readers of IMPACT, an e-magazine!

All the best in your endeavors!
3/4/17
Nice of you having crossed a score of 85000 for your valuable THOUGHTS!

You are what you are- very special- not having anything to do with ALL FOOLS DAY!
31/3/17
I am referring to your Post made on 18/3/17 to mark the First Walk in Space Day!

We are part of this magnificent Universe, and as if not content with its original original creation, humans with their wisdom come out with new theories useful and effective on various counts!
The discoveries and inventions greatly contribute to the well being of all living beings!

Man has made very many great strides towards growth and development in all fields of activity that concerns our everyday life!
One such achievement was the setting the foot on the space by Alexy Leonor, the Soviet cosmonaut for the first time in the space history!
On the face of it such breakthroughs may not appear significant, but their application proves its importance in future!

Scientific advancements are hence very much necessary to evolve further and farther in matters connected with the Universe!

Government must on its part encourage, and facilitate the scientists in a big way by allocating sufficient funds for the projects floated by them in the interest of humanity as a whole!

Student community should also enhance their scientific temper right from their school days, and make themselves sufficiently equipped to be of useful to the common man!

31/3/17

A nice post, titled World Meteorological Day you have made on 23/3/17!

We have to learn to be SLAVES of NATURE, if we’re really revering the God Almighty!
The different seasons of the year are to be seen, and experienced for what they are!
There’s no enjoyment without the corresponding hardships!

May we enjoy the comforts when we’re blessed with them, and may we also prepare ourselves to face boldly if hardships encounter us in the way!

We have no right to intervene in the ways of NATURE, but rather to guard the environment in all possible ways!
May we not lose our sense to the extent of welcoming our nature to play tit for tat, thereby revenging on our senseless actions!

Clouds play an important role in weather and climate forecasts ;
The uncertainty that goes with climate change drives us to be well aware of everything about clouds, and hence the theme:
” UNDERSTANDING CLOUDS!

31/3/17

This is about your post on WORLD WATER DAY, made on 22/3/17!

Despite the fact that our earth is made up of more water, we suffer from its insufficiency!
That not all of us are ensured of potable water is most ironic in the light of this truth!

Water is so scarce that we need to use it judiciously, making it available for those in need of it!
We feel its usefulness only when we are not fortunate enough to have our daily quota of water, the ELIXIR of life!

Harvesting of rain water will go a long way in catering to our needs when we are rendered hapless due to its non-availability!

To make the current year’s theme workable, first of all, may we not waste water unnecessarily, and also may we learn to recycle the wasted water to serve various other purposes easily!

For this Sunday Story only this much!!!!!

We shall meet as usual on Monday morning Thanks

SERENITY IN SILENCE

 

In silence you see serenity
In stillness you see divinity
Silence and stillness bring sanctity!
In the battlefield you feel silence
In the market busy, feel stillness
What one needs sure a mind and patience!
It’s only the mind that makes or mars
Train the mind and tame the thoughts sure harsh
Make life’s journey like a controlled horse!
Turbulent waves in storm rock the ship
Captains with skills never meet a pip
Sure the man reaches the glory’s tip!
God dwells in deep silence and strong sound
Great yogis of yore with wisdom found!

 

Rhyme And Rhythm Or Theme And Content*

 Image result for Images-Rhyme and Rhythm

Sure rhyme and rhythm always great
Music and sound sure a treat!
Poem writing lovely art
Love it is to poet’s heart
Grammar and rules play a part!
Theme and content must be smart!
Feelings and emotions sure
Make the poem simply pure!
Content no doubt adds splendor
Message gives it more grandeur!
As I write this with great care
Bhagwat Pada comes to share
“bhaja govindaṃ bhaja govindaṃ
govindaṃ bhaja mūdhamate |
samprāpte sannihite kāle
nahi nahi rakṣati dukriṅkaraṇe”*

*Adi Shankara Bhagawat paadha in his monumental BAJA GOVINDAM says in his own inimitable style the futility of mastering over the grammar at the time we have to make our exit from this world and the need to think of the Lord.

CPC MEET !

 

CPC May monthly Meet-27/5/17 Shri Jairam Seshadri and Shri B. Jayaraman

I have on 31st January 2017 exhaustively dealt with the great activities of the CHENNAI POETS’ CIRCLE in ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com under the caption AMIDST THE AMBASSADORS OF PEACE (available in January 2017 archives of the Blog).
There are indeed many literary organizations in the country that provides sufficient food for the ever hungry lovers of literature- beyond region and religion, language and culture.
In Chennai-the great seat of education and research, culture and civilization, literary activities of all hues and shades- is blessed with CHENNAI POETS’ CIRCLE which has been in active existence for the past FOURTEEN years.
Poet Members are professionals like Chartered Accountants, Bankers, Insurance Managers, academicians and so on.
They meet regularly in turn in the members’ premises promoting literary and social wellbeing and present poems and have discussions on the theme content and form. A couple of hours a month spent on literary discussions indeed rejuvenate the minds and intellect of the participants.
In the latest Meet held on the premises of Shri Jairam Seshadri who is Chartered Accountant having returned home after several years spent in UK, USA and Canada – away from the Punya Bhoomi finds himself wanting to write more. He is in Defence Officers Colony, Chennai.
He writes poetry to vent emotion that needs venting; poems serve as a catheter for the overflow and all that brews within.
Hospitality to the participant poets displayed was indeed great and enjoyed by all.
The Meet on May 27th in one of the hottest days in the city, was no longer hot inside the Meet because of the overwhelming love and respect. Cool breeze that came out of the poems presented made the participants quite comfortable and pleasant.
The meet started with the presentation of the young Poet S. Nivetha, awaiting admission for the first year of the undergraduate studies in one of the womens’ colleges in the city. She is good at drawing and she is a cartoonist. She writes prose and verse in English. She has attended the International Multilingual Poets meet held in Vijayawada on 13th and 14th November 2017. She was the youngest poet delegate and presented her poem from the Amaravathi Poetic Prism 2016 titled FRIENDSHIP-VIRTUES AND VALUES.
She also participated in the Annual potry seminar organized by he Chennai Poets’ Circle in Chennai on 29th January 2017.and presented her poen titled SISTER,OH, SISTER which was well received by other poets
She was interviewd by the Management magazine IMPACT in its special silver jubilee issue and published under the caption “INTERVIEW WITH A YOUNG ACHIEVER”

She is being included in the INDIAN BOOK OF RECORDS FOR CHILDREN to be published soon from Zirakpur, Punjab.

.She presented her acrostic poem

SUMMER DAYS WITH FRIENDS

Summer is out waiting for us to wade
Umbrella in my hand to give a shade
Monsoon and rain dreams often at the end
Making a plan to go with all my friend(s)
E very summer day is to be hot
Roaming in Sun right my mom ever shouts.

Days pass without our moving out in Sun
Awaiting my friends to share my sweet bun
Yet they find it so difficult to walk
Sitting in a/c room in house and talk!

Watching at the window I dream of rain
Idea is to go out and get drained
Thinking of the Sun my friends rest at house
Having computer and moving the mouse.

Making strange ideas – innovation
Yet need support from my friends with passion

Finding new food stuffs to eat I make now
Reducing fat my aim I bend and bow
Intake of more rest of my summer bad
Evening comes to make my life enjoy
Never my mind should become dull and sad
Declining waste of time and improve a ploy
Sharing my views with friends give a great joy.

I presented my poem “MARVEL IS THY CREATION”.

Hills are lovely, Dales are beautiful
River is lovely, fishes are beautiful
Sea is lovely, waves are beautiful
Sky is lovely, stars are beatiful
Tree is lovely, flowers are beautiful!

Beautiful is the sky lark, lovely is the peacock
Beautiful are the birds, lovely are the animals-deers and dogs!

Beautiful nature is always beautiful
Oh! It is all Thy wonderful creation!

Even
Rain is lovely, fire is beautiful
Storm is lovely, volcano is beautiful
Thunder is melodious, lightning is pleasing!
Nature’s fury is a thing of beauty!

Bed of roses and scent around it
Blade of grass and dews upon it
Rise of moon and stars above it
Oh! It’s all the marvels of Thy creation!

Here is a child with crippled foot
There is a boy with cruel mind
Here is a man with dishonest deeds
There is a woman with a lustful eyes!

He has eyes, yet blind
She has ears, yet deaf
She has hands, yet lame
Yonder Thou art witnessing all!

Mend their ways or end their deeds
Make them honest – make them healthy
Help us live in peace and amity!

All the poems presented by the participating poets were well received and the Meet came to an end very very pleasantly.

This much is for the Sunday story this week. We shall continue to meet every day.Thanks.

Poet Jairam Seshadri has two beloved pets – nice to see, touch, well disciplined and brought up great! Have a look at the same here:
