“A” leads the language
The Lord Almighty protects
Like peacock’s plumage!
Learning lacks meaning
If the learner believes not
In Him – protecting!
He surely lives long
Who seeks the feet of the Lord
To whom the noble throng!
4                                    .
To the one who clings
To HIM beyond likes-dislikes
No woes the life brings!
Who sings in HIS praise
Seeking HIS love and grace
Freed from the sins nice!
For long he lives for sure
Who treads HIS path sans desires
In this world – pure!
Who seeks not HIM whose
Compassion beyond compare
Never free from worry’s woes!
He can’t cross the sea
Of sins if he thinks not HIM
Indeed Virtues Sea!
Those heads that pray not
The God of eight virtues sure
Have eyes and ears just dot(s)!
Those who pray the Lord
Nicely cross the sea of birth
Others don’t – face woes!

Well, during the period covered by the last fifty posts, flood of water has flown under Ganges!
The whole world continues to be flooded with CORONA VIRUS and it is several days we see the people walking or biking on the roads! It is estimated by the scientists that the total weight of the CORONA VIRUS in the ENTIRE WORLD is JUST ONE GRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On the personal literary front very happy developments have taken place which I would like to share with you all.
Thanks to CORONA all the Meets, Discussions and so on are all gone online wirh the help of all powerful ZOOM!
Twice or thrice in a week all meet and discuss  through Zoom!
Birds of the same feather flock together is a well known  statement of course of fact!
In that way, I got a great friend in Mr.Germain  and all my ITHAKA posts are prompted by him!.
Kindly have a read at his latest communication.
Dear friend,
I have bad news, Athena, my most beloved of all dogs I ever had, didn’t eat anymore, didn’t move, was suffering. So we took him took the veterinarian who checked his blood. His rains are totally destroyed. He had maximum 2 weeks more to live. What a terrible choice, unwilling to let the beloved animal suffer but having to decide to let him pass away immediately.
Before he slept he gave me his leg, as he used to do to show me his friendship.  Nietzsche called his dog “Mensch”, human, but if all humans would be as human as Athena was,
there would be less killings, less wars, more…humanity.
As you know the Poem of the Week is already translated weekly in Hindi, Tamil, Bangla. The good news is that Udayan Thakker, poet of Ithaca 651, promised to translate in the future the Ithaca poems in Gujarati.

Amrutlal *

With green ink, sometimes with red,
Amrutlal would very carefully, in neat handwriting,
write down his poems
in a leather-bound diary.
Sometimes he had a nightmare
that he died of the plague,
that his poems were never published
not even found.

But Amrutlal lived a long life.
(He was my friend.)
During his lifetime,

he saw the birth of his Collected Poems.
But he also saw them
age and die.

அவருடைய கவிதைகளை எழுதுவார்
ஒரு அழகாக பைண்டான டயரியில் நாள் குறிப்பேட்டில்
சிலநேரங்களில் கொடுங்கனவு வரும்
அவர் ப்ளேக் -கொள்ளை நோயால் இறந்ததாக.

அவருடைய கவிதைகள் என்றுமே பிரசுரிக்கப்படாமலே

எங்கு இருக்கிறது என்பது கூடத்தெரியாமல்.
ஆனால் அம்ருத்லால் நீண்ட வாழ்க்கை வாழ்ந்தார்

அவரது வாழ்நாட்களில்
அவரது கவிதைத் தொகுப்பு பிறந்ததைக் கண்டார்

This tale happily deals with my colony and the wonderful manner in which the colony’s welfare is managed by the honorary office bearers of the JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR FLAT OWNERS WELFARE ASSOCIATION-duly elected by the members in a democratic fashion.

LIC buys first issuance of longest maturity bonds - The Economic Times

Life Insurance Corporation of India-my Alma mater- where I learnt the art and science of life and living is indeed a leading primary Public Sector Undertaking!

Though Only providing  life insurance to the people of this great country India that is Bharath –our Motherland it does take some additional activities like providing flats to the policyholders in different cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkatta  and so on.

That way, Chennai has a lovely Jeevan Bima Nagar with 944 flats in 59 Blocks, a beautiful office complex for the Jeevan Bima Nagar Flat Owners Welfare Association, Community Hall, number of play grounds for children, women youth and so on.

A very vast area with hundreds of trees making it look as if we are in an ideal village with green wood trees amidst a great modern city!. People from North and South, East and West are residing here  in Single, Double and triple bedroom flats  with peace and harmony, taken care of by a well-run JBNFOWA  a duly elected by the Flat owners/residents . Present office bearers are a set of loyal, dedicated, devoted and dutiful team.

If it has been developed by a private builder, more than 100 Blocks would have come up- leaving no open space for a healthy living!

It is not a “GATED COMMUNITY” in a strict sense- of course within four compound walls with FIVE gates!

JBN one of our five gates- we are a gated community!!

Various amenities are available:

“Apart from security personnel guarding the entrance round the clock, gated communities boast of amenities such as club houses, swimming pools, community halls, play grounds, sports club, etc.  One will have power back-up and parking facilities if they are a member. A more premium gated community will have on the premises restaurants, cafes, shopping complexes, children’s play area, spa, clinics, etc. An even more premium gated community would offer you valet parking, private swimming pools and personal elevators, among others.”

We have lot of space for morning and evening walks including a long .  8 WALK- ordinary one and pebbled another. Kids World, Youth World, Women World , Indoor Stadium Basket ball court and so on.

Pebbled 8 walk in our Youth World

Swings for the  children in Youth World

Nonetheless we are enjoying a nice life- in fact I am one of the first batch alloties of the Flats. The colony was born in around 1993.

I recollect and reproduce here what I said on the occasion of the Silver Jubilee  of the Colony and our great Association JBNFOWA:

வெள்ளி விழா ஆண்டு மலர்ந்ததடா !


வெள்ளி விழா ஆண்டு மலர்ந்ததம்மா
வெள்ளி விழா மலர் பூத்ததம்மா
எங்கள் நகரம் பொலிந்ததம்மா
எங்கும் மகிழ்ச்சி நிறைந்ததம்மா!               4
ஜீவன் பீமா நகரிது
பாரதவிலாச நகரிது!
வடக்கும் தெற்கும்
கிழக்கும் மேற்கும்                       8
சேர்ந்து வாழும் நகரிது!
ஜீவன் மிகுந்த நகரிது
பீமா செய்த நகரிது
ஜீவன் பீமா நகரிது!                       12

நல்ல சங்கம் நமது சங்கம்
நலச்சங்கம் பெயர் படைத்தது
நயமான பாதை காட்டுது!!

சேலத்தில் இருக்கையிலே-               16
ஜீவன் பீமா நகர் பிறந்தது
நன்முறையில் வாழப் பாதை தெரிந்தது
அந்த நாள் முதல் இந்த நாள் வரை
வந்த நட்பு வளர்ந்தது                     20
தந்த நட்பு இனிய மணம் தந்தது!;
நலச் சங்கம் அமைத்து நம்மை
நலமுறவே காத்தனர்
என்னவெல்லாம் செய்யவேண்டுமென      24
எண்ணி எண்ணிப் பார்த்தனர்
வேண்டியதைச் செய்தனர்!
பாடுபட்ட அனைவரையும்
பாராட்டி மகிழ்கிறோம்.                   28
பட்டபாட்டை நன்றியோடு
எண்ணி, எண்ணிப் பார்க்கிறோம்!
வாழ்க என மனமோடு
வாழ்த்தி மகிழ்வோம்!                    32
வெள்ளி விழா ஆண்டினிலே
தங்கக் கிரீடம் சூட்டிடுவோம்!
வெள்ளிவிழா மலரிதனை
வேங்கடவனுக்குச் சூட்டிடுவோம்!          36


Various needs of the residents are carefully taken care of the Jeevan Bima Nagar Flat Owners Welfare Association meticulously. We know all the office bearers are volunteers and duly elected by the members and they spend quite a lot of their time and energy for the welfare of the Colony!

Despair and Despondency
Disappointment and Disheartening
What are these FOUR DEES?
For whom are these FOUR DEES?

Sure they are for
The weak and the meek
The slow and the sluggish
The inactive and the indolent
The timid and the sick in mind!

Surely not for
The sincere and the serious
Involved and innovative
Faithful and confident
Humane and God loving
Compassionate and comprehensive!

Come out of the shell
Look at the shining stars
Bright sky and the wide world
Unlimited opportunities and untread path
Untapped avenues and untried methods
Make your road to success
Success that can never elude

Academic year is gone thanks to CORONA only online classes and exams sitting at homes. Here is a student’s prayer  on the occasion.

Prayer Of The School Students. Editorial Stock Image - Image of play, girl: 13973549

Oh! Goddess of knowledge and wisdom!
Many born with me have no source
To pursue education with resource
Which I am blessed thanks to my parents
Who sacrifice all their money and comforts
To make me well read with quality
So that I may serve them and society!

Help me concentrate on my goal
In all sincerity with my heart and soul!
Knowledge is precious wisdom more
That help me locate what is core
In life with the guidance of my Master
Whom I revere as your Messenger!

With CORONA ruling the roost, classes and examinations
With technological advancement, are all on line- admiration
For the organizers. Let me do them with all seriousness
And come out successful to be complimented by my parents!
