ROSE DAY- 22nd September.

World Rose Day - Welfare of Cancer Patients 2019 Celebrations on 22 September 2019

For those who believe there are three distinct Lord Almighty
Creator, protector and destroyer! Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva
In Hinduism  and naturally who believe! Cancer
Indeed is a killer disease.-my better half a victim years six ago!

World Rose Day is today September twenty second-as done
Every year to support cancer patients and make them aware
So that they can face the disease with strong willpower and spirit.

The awareness programs on this Rose day also make people
Aware of the importance of being cautious about cancer.
This in fact was the prayer of that cancer patient:

My Lord, the Almighty, creator of the Universe
What pleasure you find in making me suffer adverse
With the deadly, killer disease named CANCER-the monster
Death instant is less cruel than stifling sufferings-booster!

Chemos and radiations my Lord! Unbearable to the last
Expenses apart, sufferings mental and physical vast
Pain here and there all over-unable to bear my Lord!
Am I such a sinner to deserve this at Thy hands my God?

Thee know well I am a person of clean habits
Never irregular in anything even in bits
How and why I fell a victim Thee alone know
Spare every one from this torture, kindness please show!

Have some pity and relieve me of my woes for long
Relieve the world from this scourge of cancer, the killer strong
Let me suffer and let me be the last patient to suffer
“Let there be no more cancer patient” is my prayer!

With me let the cancer die-leave the world quite free
Let the young and old, men and women, rich and the poor
Get not the killer cancer- cause unknown, why and how-sure
None knows all over the universe-make the people free-pure!

ITHACA 647- MEN

 

ITHACA 647 Men, Maria Nivea Zagarella, Sicily

Men

The resigned sea gives back
the dead,
excessive straw,
useless,
upon this earth.

Crazy and lost
the desperate adults
depart,
the innocent little ones
can do nothing,
their little hands
frozen by the cold night
that brings them death.

Murderous men
against their own flesh,
murderous against the earth
that breast fed them since birth.

The sea no longer has
enough straw baskets
to collect drop after drop,
woes and laments
of these drowning bodies

August 6th- HIROSHIMA DAY.

Hiroshima Day 2020 — Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service

Several days in the history of the world remain green in all
And one such is today the SIXTH AUGUST! On this day in Nineteen Forty
Five most atrocious  the U.S. atomic bomb attack on the people of
Hiroshima  and the second attack on the city of Nagasaki on August ninth
Killed and wounded hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting men, women,
And children in a horrible blast of fire and radiation, and deadly fallout.

In years that followed, those who survived—the hibakusha—suffered from
Trauma of the experience and from the long-term effects of their exposure
To radiation from the weapons.  United States need not have dropped bombs
To avoid  invasion of Japan and bring an end to World War Two..
President Harry Truman  chose to authorize the use of the atomic bombs in Part to further the U.S. government’s postwar geostrategic aims.!

ITHAKA Poem 16-I AM ALSO IMPORTANT

I AM ALSO IMPORTANT

When you rich guys
பணக்காரர்களே
have spent your money,
பணத்தைச் செலவழித்து
and your banana peels
have been thrown in the ditch,
உங்களது வாழைப்பழத்தோல்களை
வாய்க்கால் பள்ளத்தில் எறிந்துவிட்டீர்கள்
and your bus tickets
as confetti have been scattered around,
உங்களது பேருந்து பயணச்சீட்டுக்களை
காகிதத்துண்டுகளாக சுற்றி எறியப்பட்டுள்ளன
and your wine and soft drinks
have been finished,
and your bottles and cans
have been left in an alley,
உங்களது குடித்து முடிந்த மதுபான பாட்டில்களும், சோடா பாட்டில்களும் சந்துகளில் கிடக்கின்றன
and your fish leftovers
and rotten fruits
மிச்சப்பட்ட மீன்களும், அழுகிய பழங்களும்
and broken boxes
and papers
உடைந்த பெட்டிகளும், காகிதங்களும்
have been tossed around
இங்கும் அங்கும் சுற்றிலும் பறந்து கிடக்கின்றன
Then I will come
and clean up the world again:
நான் அங்கு வந்து மீண்டும் உலகை
சுத்தப்படுத்துவேன்
thus,
I am also important.
இவ்வாறு
நானும் முக்கியமானவனே.

WE SHALL MEET . . .

We shall meet after the end of world, you told me

உலகத்தின் இறுதிக்குப் பிறகு நாம் சந்திப்போம், நீங்கள் என்னிடம் கூறினீர்கள்
When we’ll be just you and me, sunrise and sunset.

அப்பொழுது நாம் சாதாரண நீங்களும் நானுமாக இருப்போம்
கதிரவன் உதயம்  மறைதல் போல.
We shall meet after the end of the world, precisely

உலகின் இறுதிக்குப் பிறகு நாம் சந்திப்போம், சரியாக
When we’ll be just we two, abyss clamoring abysses.

ஆழமான  பள்ளம், ஆழமான பள்ளங்கள் என ஆரவாரம் செய்யும்
We shall meet when all things will pass through fire

எல்லாமும்  நெருப்பின் ஊடே கடந்தபின் நாம் சந்திப்போம்
And we’ll be ashes or we’ll be no more

நாம் கருகிச் சாம்பலாகி, இருக்கவே மாட்டோம்
We shall meet again when everything makes sense

நாம் மீண்டும் சந்திப்போம், எல்லாமே புரியும்
Without understanding why I was what I was.

நான் எதற்கு, நான் என்ன என்பதை அறிந்து கொள்ளாமலேயே!

State Repression During The Indian Emergency Of 1975-77 And Its ...

Our Homeland India that is Bharath one of the largest democracies
In the world  had a period some use to call BLACK Period alas!
Citizens welcoming or opposing were there quite natural
A male Prime Minister was there who had will power necessary
To declare emergency on this day Twenty Fifth Nineteen Seventy Five!
Many people sure felt and said had a good effect and impact on the Indian Society!
Withdrawn on March Twenty First Nineteen Seventy Seven for good!
When an extreme measure was initiated all knew that it will have low points:
Elections suspended, civil liberties curbed, jail sans trial, press censorship!

On the positive side people  felt had it continued they would have got
Accustomed to the trains and buses plying on time without a minutes
Late running! Not a pie to be paid as illegal gratification to different
Authorities to get job done- Automatically done at the quickest
Possible time! Employees at their seats on the dot of time working
Hard and bringing benefits to the clientele happily!

Had not that bitter pill administered the nation might have been….. !
Naturally party ruling then lost heavily in the elections next
Matters little when the  citizens at large stood benefited!

LET ME BE ALONE

Here are a few quotes on SOLITUDE!
“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.”
I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself.”
― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
“Solitude is fine but you need someone to tell that solitude is fine.”
― Honoré de Balzac
“If you’re lonely when you’re alone, you’re in bad company.”
― Jean-Paul Sartre
“My imagination functions much better when I don’t have to speak to people.”
― Patricia Highsmith
“I had already found that it was not good to be alone, and so made companionship with what there was around me, sometimes with the universe and sometimes with my own insignificant self; but my books were always my friends, let fail all else.”
― Joshua Slocum, Sailing Alone around the World
“Literature is the most agreeable way of ignoring life.”
― Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
“being alone never felt right. sometimes it felt good, but it never felt right.”
― Charles Bukowski, Women
“Time was passing like a hand waving from a train I wanted to be on.
I hope you never have to think about anything as much as I think about you.”
― jonathan safran foer
“Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast…. be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don’t torment them with your doubts and don’t frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn’t necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust…. and don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
― Lord Byron

I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.”

(Audrey Hepburn: Many-Sided Charmer, LIFE Magazine, December 7, 1953)”
― Audrey Hepburn

“The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.”
― Aldous Huxley
“I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time. To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden
“Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous – to poetry. But also, it gives birth to the opposite: to the perverse, the illicit, the absurd.”
― Thomas Mann, Death in Venice and Other Tales
I am not an introvert yet LET ME BE ALONE
I am not a pessimist yet LET ME BE ALONE!
LET ME BE ALONE to suffer my miserable life
Full of woes and pains, LET NOT OTHERS WORRY ABOUT ME
My woes and pains. God’s will is that
I don’t want my kith and kin, friends and all
To know and grieve at my Woes and Pains!LET ME BE ALONE till my WOES AND PAINS
Yield place to JOY AND HAPPINESS
Others my kith and kin, friends and all
Can participate and enjoy with me.
Till then LET ME BE ALONE and suffer my destined
WOES AND PAINS, SORROWS AND SUFFERINGS!
God is Great and sure HE will not make me suffer for LIFE!
