WORLD REFUGEE DAY June 20th.

 Every minute 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution or terror

In a way I feel we are all refugees sent by the creator Almighty
To this world for a temporary phase-but our lives made  worthwhile rightly!
But real refugees are unfortunate people becoming refugees
Due to external reasons-very miserable and atrocious to the core!

World Refugee Day marks a key moment for the public to show support
For families forced to flee.June Twentieth today is World Refugee Day.
Every year is observed with different themes declared by United Nations
This year’s theme is Global Compact on Refugees.indeed very important one.

It calls for investment in communities that host refugees to help ease
The pressure on the host and to help refugees become self-reliant.
Some important quotes on this:
Albert Einstein: “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything”

Kofi Annan: “I urge you to celebrate the extraordinary courage and contributions of refugees past and present.”

Anne Frank: “How wonderful it is that no one has to wait, but can start right now to gradually change the world! How wonderful it is that everyone, great and small, can immediately help bring about justice by giving of themselves.”

Martin Luther King Jr: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

BE A MILLIONAIRE DAY 20th May

Shall I say let me be a MILLIONAIRE? No let me a CROREPATI-
Million has not much of a value today as much as a CRORE!!!!!
It’s Be a Millionaire Day! Today an opportunity to dream big
And imagine what life would be as a millionaire! a crorepati!

A million dollars isn’t what it used to be, seeing a seven-
Figure number in our bank account is still financial milestone.
Rightly Gandhiji said if one has more than what he needs, balance
Be held as a custodian for others-poor and downtrodden!

If not cent per cent a major excess can go to orphanages
And old age homes in plenty in the world! Sevalayas and
Uthavum Karangal are there all over needing funds from the public!
Let us help to the extent possible on this awareness occasion!

MAY DAY

Labour Day has its origins in a movement mobilised by the labour union at the time of rising industrialization

May Day-Labor Day- to honor the working class who labor for a cause
The cause to make the people live in peace and harmony, and be happy
They sacrifice their pleasures and health, care not for comforts and suffer pain!
Right in the days when they were subjected to exploitation and strain!

Unfortunately the labor class exploiting the society becomes
Order of the day and the people are put to inconveniences!
Both seem to be at fault- expectations high among all pathetic.
Rights and duties go hand in hand and society to be sympathetic!

On this holy holiday let the blue or white colored-working class resolve
To be faithful to all and selves and do their duty with all their heart
Government and employers to take care of the employees, workers of all
Cadres -treating honorably, paying decently, respecting  humanly!

Our children indeed are our pets even when in teens and above!
God’s will and creations are unique and many can be our pets!
If we consider our pet a member of the family, we
Are normal humans. Millions have dogs and cats as lovely pets!
Fish, birds, gerbils and turtles are also deemed to be so by many.
We love pets and National Pet Day is the purr-fect our furry,
Feathery, or scaly friends on April Eleventh- today our pet day!
Here isaa what Mahakavi Bharathiyar expresses his love for pets as if he advises his pet children!
IN TAMIL

கொத்தித் திரியுமந்தக் கோழி – அதைக்
கூட்டி விளையாடு பாப்பா.
எத்தித் திருடுமந்தக் காக்காய் -அதற்கு
இரக்கப் படவேணும் பாப்பா!
பாலைப் பொழிந்து தரும் பாப்பா! – அந்தப்
பசுமிக நல்லதடிப் பாப்பா!
வாலைக் குழைத்துவரும் நாய்தான் அது
மனிதற்குத் தோழனடி பாப்பா!
வண்டி இழுக்கும் நல்ல குதிரை நெல்லு
வயலில் உழுதுவரும் மாடு,
அண்டிப் பிழைக்கும் நம்மை ஆடு – இவை
ஆதரிக்க வேணுமடி பாப்பா!
