Journalists, journalism, print and electronic media-Radio and television rightly called fourth estate next to Legislature, Judicature, Bureaucracy.
They have a noble role to play and by and large they play their role very effectively. They by their free and fair reporting enhance the reputation of the individuals or institutions.
Newspapers big and small in the area of circulation or the number of copies circulated, carry a lot of messages for the readers. I have personally experienced the joy and worth of such reporting on ourselves or others.
This week’s Sunday Story carries the recent experiences with the Press and Envius Thoughts.
We have national news paper of century old THE HINDU and several neighborhood newspapers called Anna Nagar Times, Anna Nagar Talk, Mogappair Times, Mogappair mail Tamil magazines of repute “KALAI MAGAL”, “KAVITHAI URAVU”, “ILAKKIYA CHOLAI” and so on. They frequently carry some interesting information on my work and Envius Thoughts which creates a new circle of friends and acquaintances. and I feel very rewarding to me a sensitive person.
Friends and others in my colony and outside speak to me over phone or in person; they say they feel elated whenever they see some news on me and this Blog.Naturally it plunges me in pleasure! Let me share a few thoughts with my esteemed viewers.
When a review of my Tamil translation of Telugu Thyagabrammam’s Pancha Rathna Keerthanas to Tamil was reviewed very positively by the HINDU a lot of inquiries were made.
I can quote quite a few examples in the Hindu and other magazines. Would like to confine for the reasons of brevity the latest one.

On seeing the Anna Nagar Time one more Mr Kumar highly appreciative of the Blog. He observed-”A new concept within the Visual communication. Neat work by you. “ He had a golden idea to suggest through the Blog for the viewers to adopt CALF OF A COW AS PET.
Here is a post in the Blog reproduced:
All living beings on earth fine creation of Lord Almighty
Humans and animals, trees and forests, rivers and seas mighty
To play supplement and complement to each and all at all times
All have to enjoy harmonious joy and happiness,and peace!
Pets play an important role to provide joy to the owners
Parrots and squirrels, cats and dogs are the pets of pet- lovers!
It is noble to adopt Calf of the cow as one’s pet in life
Calves of today are cows of tomorrow-called GOMATHA fine!
Cows give the nutritious milk – essential for young and old
The sick and poor! Every individual house owner-bold
Can happily and the flat owners may be a question mark
Yet can try outside the building in the open space around!
In India- my Motherland-Bharath it is genuinely
Believe COW as sacred one and mother for all rightly
Called GO MATHA-in whose body dwell hundreds of our Gods
With the pets we find pleasure in fondling with our palms.
More so with Cow’s calf-both find happiness- to provide our goal
One Swami will say-”Our religion is for giving maximum
Happiness to maximum people for maximum time”. Let us
Adopt the calf of the cow as pet and enjoy make it famous!
Cows and buffaloes friends of the farmers in our country great
Farmers provide us food with their agricultural products neat
Tractors are different-cows and buffaloes nothing to beat
Let us adopt calves and give to farming community later!
He has also organized planting 4500 saplings to become great trees towards greener world!
Recently there was a special achievement.
Palasu is a vedic spiritual tree, whose dry branch/ stems are used as samithu.
We had planted 4500 plants which is unique.
Can you cover.We had planted.
