March 22nd. National Goof Off Day

National Goof Off Day - March 22

Is it a funny day? No it is a serious day to think of and follow
We work , work, work and get tired-tired to the extent of requiring REST!
March Twenty Second National Goof Off Day is meant for that taking rest at best
Happily avail and enjoy a day of complete rest to body and mind-a test!

A day to relax, enjoy and goof off, doing something fun and leave the work
Until tomorrow. Everyone needs a break from time to time from hard work
Easy to get involved in the work and pressures in our lives. Let us stop,
Take a break, find something different! away from the routine!

A Maths lecturer of my times used to say when we ask for a leisure period.
If we read Algebra instead of Astronomy, it is a leisure hour
Not necessarily taking rest- let us spend time in a different fashion
That will amount to GOOF OFF DAY- wish you a day of such rest in attention!

Robert Browning who wrote GRAMMARIAN’S FUNERAL

 

Robert Browning and his Grammarian’s funeral are indeed great
“On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven, a perfect round.”
The line I like most as it has given me the vision for life.
” AIM HIGH, ACHIEVE HIGH” I used this thousands of time to motivate all!

The POET says:

That low man seeks a little thing to do,
Sees it and does it.
This high man, with a great thing to pursue,
Dies ere he knows it.

That low man goes on adding one to one,—
His hundred’s soon hit;
This high man, aiming at a million,
Misses an unit.
That has the world here—should he need the next,
Let the world mind him!
This throws himself on God, and unperplexed
Seeking shall find him.

Let us aim at a million- no matter we miss by an unit
A place in heaven is sure for me as my aim was high
ON THE EARTH THE BROKEN ARCS; IN THE HEAVEN A PERFECT ROUND
‘Aiming high and missing’ better than ‘aiming low and achieving’-joy unbound!

What a wonderful world is God’s creation!Plenty to write and plenty to read
Plenty to eat and plenty to make innovatively to cater to the taste buds!

Complained that his potatoes were too thick and soggy, kept sending them back.
Chef George Crum sliced as thin as possible, frying them until crisp and added
Extra salt. To great surprise, the customer loved them, and became a regular
Item on the restaurant’s menu under the name of “Saratoga Chips.”

Then widely used menu item on train cars, hotel restaurants, and street carts!
The Dayton, Ohio-based Mike-sell’s Potato Chip Company,started in Nineteen Ten 1910,
Is the “oldest potato chip company in the United States.” Flavored chips were introduced .
Potato Chip revenues are over Fifteen billion dollars a year worldwide!

Though our home made chips are tastier and cheaper children go in for
Pringles,Uncle Chipps, LAY’S,Haldiram’s, Ruffles and what not to go for
Funny world, funny habits but of course popular among young and old
Advancing world with modern means of publicity, potato chips nice people say bold!

TAGORE IN TAMIL Poem 30

 

POEM 30

IN THE SILENT DARK!

I came out alone on my way to my tryst. But who is this that follows me in the silent dark?
I move aside to avoid his presence but I escape him not.
He makes the dust rise from the earth with his swagger; he adds his loud voice to every word that I utter.
He is my own little self, my lord, he knows no shame; but I am ashamed to come to thy door in his company.

கீதாஞ்சலியின் 30ஆவது பாடல்

அமைதியான இருட்டில்
குறித்த நேரத்தில் சென்றடைய
தனியாக வந்தேன் எனது பாதையில்!
அமைதியான இருட்டில் தொடர்ந்து
வருவது அங்கே யாராய் இருக்கும்?
அவனைத் தவிர்க்க ஒதுங்கிப் போகிறேன்.
இருப்பினும் அவனைத் தவிர்ப்பதெப்படி?
அவன் பேசும் தற்புகழ் பேச்சு
பூமியினின்று துகள் கிளப்பும்!
நான் பேசும் ஒவ்வொரு சொல்லிலும்
அவனது கனத்த குரலை கலந்து விடுகிறான்!
இறைவா! அவன் வேறு யாருமில்லை
நானே ஆவேன்; வெட்கம் அறியேன்.
உன்னிடம் அவனுடன் வரவேண்டாம்
வெட்கம் என்னைத் தடுக்கிறது!;

As I see it…………..

In Tamil

ஒளியிலும் இருட்டிலும், பகலிலும் இரவிலும், காலையிலும் மாலையிலும் யாரோ என்னை எப்பொழுதும் தொடர்ந்து வந்தவண்ணம் இருக்கிறார். நான் அவரை ஒதுக்க, அவரைவிட்டு ஒதுங்க விரும்பினாலும், ஒதுங்கிச்செல்ல முடிவதில்லை. அவர் வேறு யாருமில்லை எனது ஆன்மாதான்; எனது உள்ளுணர்வுதான்! எனது தற்புகழ்ச்சி உணர்வு, பெருமை, நான் எனும் அகங்காரம், எனது எனும் மமகாரம் ஆகியவையே. இறைவா! உன்னிடம் அவைகளோடு, அவர்களோடு வர வெட்கப்படுகிறேன்; வேதனைப் படுகிறேன்.

இந்த எதிர்மறை உணர்வுகளை அவன் அருளொடு தவிர்க்க முயல்வோம்; தவிர்த்து அமைதியோடு, பண்போடு வாழ்வோம்..

In English.

Some one continues to follow me in the light and darkness, day and night, morning and evening. Even if I want to be away from him,I am unable to be away.He is none other than my spirit, soul, anmaa.; my inner feelings; my sense of ego;pride, the Iness in me;
my ahankara, mamakara,. Oh, my God,I am ashamed to come to you with them.I regret.

Let us try to avoid such negative tendencies; giving u8p let us live in peace and nobility.

March 6th -DENTIST DAY

With best wishes for all the DENTISTS  over the WORLD on this DENTIST DAY!

 

Toothless person, Tooth full (Truthful) person posted in this Blog earlier
In the creation of human body, TEETH that add beauty to the face
Right from the childhood every one boy or girl needs careful nurture
Lest greater embarrassments all our life we will be forced to chase!

Of the noble medical professionals, Dentists have a special
Role and place. Sixth March today observed as DENTISTS DAY all over -noble
Fortunate I am to have a great Dentist -Professor- Victory i.selfish one
During his medical course never allowed any award to go to some one!

The day annually observed on March sixth to say “Thank You” and show
Appreciation to your dentist. The day of our dental visit makes us nervous
We wish we have someplace other than a dental chair. When our checkup is done,
Our teeth cleaned, cavities filled, broken tooth fixed, toothache gone, we are happy!
