Leonov-the first Space Walker!

Alexey Leonov on 1965 USSR 10 kopek stamp.

Leonov was outside the spacecraft for  twelve minutes and nine seconds
On Eighteenth March Nineteen Sixty Five- fifty three years ago
Connected to the craft by a five meter tether! Wonderful feat-
At the end,  his spacesuit inflated in the vacuum  to the point
Where he could not re-enter the airlock-. opening a valve to allow
Some of the suit’s pressure to bleed off and  got back inside the capsule.

The great Creator, Preserver and Destroyer Lord Almighty
Made the Universe-earth, sky, space and all living beings mighty
To explore the space and hills, seas and forests sky and the planets
And exploit for the world’s greater peace and joy, health and happiness!
Man in his wisdom made his body and mind, intelligence in full
Set his feet into the space and planets outside his earth
And the search goes on – with successes- set goal higher in mirth!

The above is the view of a part of my home library, more beautified by the addition of this GOLDEN JUBILEE ISSUE  after my reading and appreciating the poets and their creations!

Literature in any language is a great, plentiful, beautiful Ocean where one gets pearls par excellent!

ENVIUS THOUGHTS had the pride and pleasure of paying tributes to International Multilingual Anthology   POETIC PRISM in  November 2016  viz  IN PRAISE OF AMARAVATI POETIC PRISM 2016!

Again in February this year for EFFLORESCENCE an anthology compiled by Chennai Poetic Circle and released in the CPC Meet!

There used to be a statement running like this about half a decade ago:

“Art and Literature of highest type cannot flourish in a world which is increasingly mechanical and society a rocket!”

But my own experience shows that the above statement has been devalued and demonetized to the extent that more and more  literary works are made, widely in circulation, they have a currency among the public and they are enjoyed as is seen from the increasing popularity of Book fairs in all parts of the country, flourishing publishers all over, skyrocketing readership of magazines- E and print- books  printed and e, literary meets and conferences and so on! POEM HUNTER is a fine example!

In the literary world POETRY has its own exalted position!

When we hear a poem, we may recognize certain patterns, such as a regular beat, a rising rhythm, or a series of rhymes. When we see a poem printed on a page, we might notice another kind of pattern that cues us we are not looking at standard prose: those ragged right-hand margins, indicating the lines must stop there and nowhere else. Whether we hear a poem read aloud or read it on a page, it ought to be clear we are experiencing a special patterned arrangement of language, differing from ordinary speech or prose writing.

Those who have ears to hear and eyes to see a POEM do and can enjoy this genre of literature.

It was my singular fortune that I have come across nice poetic journals for quite some time;  I am not a good poet-though the literary world has admitted me into their respective circles- POET, POET CRIT, BRAIN WAVE, CONTEMPORARY VIBES, METVERSE MUSE, MANDAKINI, KAFLA-INTER CONTINENTAL, YOUNG POET,  POETRY WORLD, GREEN LOTUS, BIZZ BUZZ, BRIDGE-IN-MAKING, CANOPY, POETRY TODAY, POETS INTERNATIONAL, SAMVEDANA, QUEST, KOHINOOR and others.

In most of these journals my poems have appeared many a time.

In Tamil MANA OSAI, KAVITHAI URAVU are exclusively for Poetry.

METVERSE MUSE one of the best and regularly published POETIC JOURNAL is indeed apple of my eyes!

I am connected with this journal of Dr. Tulsi from Vishakhapatnam for a long time and there was a gap of late now renewed.  To manage a journal exclusively for promoting the poets and their creations  needs tons of devotion to the cause, dedication to the purpose, loyalty to the goal and Poet Madam Dr.Tulsi at her age 81 has been blessed with plenty.  One is left to wonder whether such an achievement is humanly possible- possible of seeing in Black and White, the Golden Jubilee issue of  a poetic print journal –with a hefty 400 pages presenting over 1750 Poems in structured verse by World Poets representing over 65 countries along with regular features and photos!

Immediate reaction of this blogger on receiving this issue was as communicated to the Editor:

Respected Poet Editor,

Delighted to receive the GOLDEN JUBILEE ISSUE OF METVERSE MUSE just now. On the first look FINE, VERY FINE, and DELIGHTFULLY FINE! Heartiest congratulations. Probably GODDESS SARASWATHY  compiled through you. May God bless you. I shall write in detail as a Sunday Story in my ENVIUS THOUGHTS in

With kind regards.

Yours N V Subbaraman

My ward young poet S. Nivetha is  very happy to find her poem published  along with her Bio data recalled here for the kind perusal of my esteemed readers.



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!.


Miss. Nivetha S is a first year  BCA student of a Chennai local college. She has nice handwriting. She is a good cartoonist. She has a passion for writing English poems and articles. She was the youngest poet to present her poem out of more than 200 poets who participated in the International Multilingual Poets Meet at Vijayawada on 13th and 14th November 2016 and in the Poets Meet organized by Chennai Poets Circle on 29th January 2017 in Chennai.

For her participation in the Vijayawada meet she found a place in the INDIA BOOK OF RECORDS FOR CHILDREN.


I recollect the earlier issues  and the innovative feature of the GJI (Golden Jubilee Issue) is the Editor’s publishing  important  letters/responses right from the first issue to 49th issue just as the important poems published in the past! A himalayan task at the age beyond sathabishekam age! They have been clasified into foreign poets and Indian poets!

GJI caries 1750 poems from the poets from 65 countries! Mind boggling  figures requiring Himalayan Efforts by the Editor!

























New Zealand







South Africa













Poets are universal; their thoughts are societal; their expressions are enviable; their words and deeds help to improve peace and poise, joy and harmony!

Those who connect the poets from different parts of the world such as Dr. Tulsi of Vishakapatnam, Smt. Padmaja Aiyengar of Vijayawada, Mrs. Hema Ravi and Shri Jayaram Seshadri of Chennai who are all involving themselves with great devotion and dedication to publish Poetry Anthology in a tremendous manner in fact give a shot in the arm for the improvement of the prestige of literary world!


I pleasantly recall my communication to Madam Dr.H. Tulsi on receipt of her mail soliciting  contribution of poem for the DJI:


Respected Editor Poet Thulsi madam,

I am N V Subbaraman, regular contributor to your esteemed METVERSE  MUSE for a decade in those days.  I admired your interest in encouraging young poets by allotting first few pages  for children’s poems. My YOUNG POET has been going as emag.


My ward S Nivetha got into the India Book of Records for Children for being the youngest poet delegate at age 17 in the International Multi Lingual Poets Meet held at Vijayawada in November 2016.


My hearty congratulations for your bringing out the FIFTIETH issue of MM.


Thanks. You have happily kindled my thoughts on the METVERSE MUSE with which I was connected for a decade and more. I have taken quite sometime to respond to your mail as I was trying to lay my hands on the great journal. So far I could on 17 issues and out of the 17, 15 carry my 16 poems-third issue published in January 1997 to 9/2006-3/2007. IMy home library is big and I am tracing the rest.


With greetings from YOUNG POET and N V Subbaraman!

As advised by you, I attach herewith my poem and that of S. Nvetha my ward for the FIFTIETH issue of METVERSE MUSE  for your kind consideration of including the same in this issue. We will deem it as a great privilege and honor.

  1. NIvetha seeks your blessings for her successful poetic journey.

Thanks and with regards.

This way the GOLDEN JUBILEE ISSUE of METVERSE MUSE brought me joy and happy remembrances of the past.

It is indeed great and unique that such a great work-the GJI – has been made available free of cost for which one has to thank the sponsors.

This issue is very well brought out with thick beautiful cover with a poem “ARTISTIC ART DEFIES DEATH” as a response of the Editor to a point made by Dr. Hyder Nayab. Inside papers are art paper in nice print.  The Anthology-GOLDEN JUBILEE ISSUE OF METVERSE MUSE adds beauty and great value to my Home Library about which I am quite proud of with a few hundred volumes.

On line marketing, anything sitting in front of all powerful
COMPUTER-making use of internet facility from any part of the globe
Whatever we need, reaching our door steps in a couple of days,
Risk is always there with anything on earth- not an exemption here!





Albert Einstein

GERMAN-Scientist-Physicist Albert Einstin

Nobel Laureate Albert Einstein was born this day hundred and thirty
Nine years ago in Germany-inventor of Theory
Of Relativity leading to quantum theory in the field
Of Physics- that made the lives easier and comfortable!

In the creation of God Almighty all over the world many
Giants were born-in the fields different bringing comforts heavy
For the people to live-Scientists, Mathematicians, Economists
Litterateurs- to make human lives great and noble, very best!

Born and made they are- children from young age be trained to think and learn
The ways and lives of the great ones in areas various and resolve
To achieve great like Raman and Kalam, Einstin and Edison
Contribute to the Society- parents and teachers a great role to play!


Most baffling to the students of Mathematics is Pi
It has a lovely history and Science behind- sky high!
March Fourteenth is PI DAY all over the world- well observed
A great fun  and pun on the word Pi and Pie – well enjoyed!

A mathematical constant π twenty two by seven!
3.1415926535897932384626433……… ad infinitum
Used in various ways- areas of circle, circumference
With properties-irrationality, transcendence!

Great Scientists and Mathematicians used extensive
Archimedes, Liu Hui, Zu Chongzhi, Aryabhata, Madhavea
Ludolph van Ceulen, Seki Takakazu and a host of many
Let us salute the day, concept and the people on this day!


My desires are many
My desires are many and my cry is pitiful, but ever didst thou save me by hard refusals; and this strong mercy has been wrought into my life through and through.
Day by day thou art making me worthy of the simple, great gifts that thou gavest to the unasked – this sky and the light, this body and the life and the mind- saving me from perils of overmuch desire.
There are times when I languidly linger and times when I awaken and hurry in search of my goal; but cruelly thou hidest thyself before me. Day by day thou art making me worthy of thy full acceptance by refusing me ever and anon, saving me from perils of weak, uncertain desire.

It is natural that as our desires go on increasing, we get disappointment and hence regrets Yet God Almighty guides us. By creating NATURE, HE makes us prosperous.
In our efforts to realize GOD, our desires and avariciousness may stand as a hurdle.By efforts we have to overcome and succeed. in realization. by following noble ways we have to tread and succeed.

கீதாஞ்சலி 14ஆம் பாடல்
எனது ஆசைகள் அதிகம்!
எனது ஆசைகள் அதிகம்
எனது அழுகை பரிதாபம்!
எப்பொழுதும் என்னைக் காத்திட
மறுத்ததில்லை; இந்த இரக்கம்
என்றும் காத்திடும் இனிய அனுபவம்;
என்னைக் காக்கும் இன்ப ரகசியம்!
வானும் ஒளியும், உடலும் மனமும்
கேளாமல் தந்தஅருட்கொடையன்றோ?
ஆசைகளென்னும் ஆழ்ந்த குழியில்
அமிழ்ந்துவிடாமல் காத்திடுமோ?
இலக்கு என்பது அறியாமல்
இழந்த காலம் எவ்வளவோ?
இலக்கை அறிந்து அடைதற்கு
இடையே நிற்பது முறைதானோ?
ஆசை என்னும் பாசக் குழியில்
இடறி விழாமல் காத்திடுவாய்!

ஆசைகள் அதிகரிக்க அதிகரிக்க வேதனையும் அதிகரிப்பது இயற்கை. இருப்பினும் இறைவன் நம்மை வழிநடத்திச் செல்லுவார்.. இறைவன் இயற்கையைப் படைத்து அதன் வழி நம் வாழ்வை வளப்படுத்துகிறார்.
இறைவனைக் காணும் முயற்சியில் சில நேரங்களில் நமது ஆசை, பேராசை குறுக்கே நிற்கலாம். அவற்றை முயன்று வெற்றிகொண்டு இலக்கை அடைதல் வேண்டும். நல்ல வழிகளைப் பின்பற்றி வெற்றிகாண வேண்டும்.
