NATIONAL PET DAY April 11th

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

சின்னஞ் சிறுகுருவி போலே-நீ
திரிந்து பறந்து வா பாப்பா
வன்னப் பறவைகளைக் கண்டு – நீ
மனதில் மகிழ்ச்சி கொள்ளு பாப்பா!
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!

Looking at the colorful birds around –you
Have all joy ever in your mind my child! (2)

Indeed is a nice and good cow my child;
The dog that comes around with its wagging tail it
Is a great friend of a man my child! (4)

The goat that depends on us for life – all these
To be taken care of by us, my child! (5)

GREAT CREATION MY BELOVED CROW!

CROW

Photoed by S.Nivetha in our Balcony.

MY dear and beloved crow, I love you sure
I love your color-praised by Bharathiyar
I love your alarming * voice to wake me up
I love your beak strong enough to break hard nut
I love your hospitality-sharing a morsel
Of food with all your kith and kin-which I don’t!
I love your punctuality-to rise up early morn
Taking your food at seven thirty in my bolcony
Attending your classes in the evenings perching
On the branches of a tree very regularly learning!
I love your sharp sight to see my placing your food
In my balcony and coming in seconds to taste the good!
I admire your intelligence that makes you carefully see
Whether the food kept is right and good; when you doubt
By its shape or size, you call your friends to ascertain
Whether it is harmless and then only you take!careful certain!
My people call you sky scavengers as you clean the earth quite nice
I call you as earth beautifiers sans any salary what a great grace!
You are a fine creation by the Almighty God- Omniscient
Lovely bird beloved crow created by the Omnipotent!
I love you so much, but you make me guilty of jealousy
I feel jealous of you-I am unable to swim in air like you!

*alarm clock like.

CROWS- Teacher and the Taught!

December 11th-International Mountain Day

Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Lord Almighty
In HIS ocean of compassion created the whole world with all
Living beings, humans and animals, high mountains and deep valleys,
All to coexist for the mutual peace and plenty, joy and health!

”Mountains Matter” – theme for this International Mountain Day
Crucial role they play in providing key ecosystem goods and services
To the planet and their vulnerability due to climate change,
We all of us have to step up and raise attention to mountains.

Mountains Matter for Water as mountains are the world’s ‘water towers’
All glaciers in mountain ranges around the world retreat and disappear.
Mountains Matter for Disaster Risk Reduction as climatic variations trigger disasters.
Avalanches, mud flows and landslides tumble downstream, strip bare forests.

Mountains Matter for Tourism as mountains attract global tourism
Mountains Matter for Food as centers of biodiversity
Mountains Matter for rural Youth as life in the mountains is tough.
Abandon their villages in search of employment elsewhere.

Mountains Matter for Indigenous Peoples as mountain areas host
Ancient indigenous communities with precious knowledge, traditions.
Mountains Matter for Biodiversity as half of hotspots are in mountains
Mountains are home to rare animals such as gorillas, snow leopards etc.

Large social movement can bring mountain issues through a global campaign
Social media strategy and events around the world, to tell the world
That the current neglect of mountains and mountain peoples must stop.
Let us use the hashtag Mountains Matter in all our social work.

FRIEND WITH BIRDS (Part I)

In the great creations of the Lord Almighty
Birds are wonderful in its wonderful variety
A heaven indeed for the bird watchers pleasant
In its sanctuaries all over for merriment!

Following the Flowers  speak a few days back
Here are the birds who spoke to me – a nice cake!
 

Bat-it cannot-but we can: Why do you sport my name?
I said with pride: We have Tendulkars and Gavaskars!

 

Bulbul asked with a smile: Can you sing like me?
Said I with smiles: Yes we have bul bul dharas!,

Cormorant asked cryptically: Can you live like us?
Said I with my strength: You can not as much as I do in land!!!!

Crane asked of me with clarity: Can you climb up like us?
Said I with a penchant: Look at the aircraft flying over your head!

CROW

Crow asked with you joy: What do you think of us?
Said I politely: You are my conscience keeper!.

Cuckoo in its voice melodious asked: Can you sing like our tribe?
With a sense of pride I told: We have amidst us melody kings and queens!

Dove with its penchant told: We are the ambassadors of peace!
I replied majestically: That is why we lift you up and leave you in the air
To spread our message of peace and harmony every where!

Duck said happily: It is a pleasure to swim in water!
I replied  sadly: That is why and how we duck!

Eagle asked in its voice sad: Are you not happy with my sight?
I told in vain: Not like that but……………………………

Emu asked with pride: Why not you visit Australia to enjoy the view of our clan?
I said with pleasure: I shall come along with our cricketers  next season!

Falcon in its beauty asked: Are you ready for the game?
I said with fear: Yes ready but…………………………

Flamingo with a pride of its color asked: Are you envy of our color?
In joy I told : You are one of the lovely creations of nature in tower!

BEYOND THE GRILLS

 

Beyond the grills of my beautiful window
A lovely sight I get as the gift of wind!
A plant of two years with height of ten feet
Bows with respect to the God of wind quite neat!

East to West and West to East, South to North and
North to South –gentle movement supporting wind
Adding to the great pleasure of breeze sitting
On this good side of the grill and enjoying!

A beautiful crow just glides and lands on the
Tender green plant- plant obliging the crow
A space to perch and moving along wit the
Plant’s branches- the great creation of God!

SONG OF THE CROW.

In God’s creation all the living beings humans and animals
Have been blessed with the art of communication-in their annals
Wonderful and unique with each and every creation sure
Can be enjoyed with a properly attuned mind very pure!

Song of the crow sweet and melodious, enjoying from childhood
Beloved mom made me get up to the tune of Crow’s song in the morns
Made me taste my first food calling crow to sing a song for me
What a lovely creation of the Almighty and a present to all!

With its song it makes the people get up in the predawn regular
It gives a musical tone calling its kith and kin to a tasty food
When in distress the crow sings a song that brings its friends smart and quick
In their evening classes in tree branches, a nice chorus is sung in mirth!
