Shri N. Jaganathan who is in charge of PR and Publicity wing of my beloved organization SEVALAYA (seen above) about which I have posted a poem on 3rd August 2016 and a Sunday story under the title TEMPLE OF SERVICE (SEVALAYA) on 7th August 2016 in this Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS.
Mr. Jagannathan has become so fond of ENVIUS THOUGHTS that he not only regularly views them but also makes his comments often. I am sure they are quite interesting and hence they form this week’s SUNDAY story; I am confident that you will enjoy them.
Part V was posted on 26th May 2019. Here is Part VI for the delightful reading of my esteemed readers.

, your to-day’s post is informative, illustrative and inspiring. All are new information (to me). Once again thank you for your consistent contributions in dissemination of facts, many of which people seldom know.

11/7/2019

Sir, this is another great saint-preceptor-philosopher you have given and made your many viewers know. Thank you Sir. From your blog, I could understand that the saint was a positive philosopher served people. We are reminded Anusuyadevi, lived with our Rama Sita Devi, who had direct blessings of our Matha. She had the great honour of listening when Sita Devi described her marriage. This great privilege Anusuyadevi had, our epic Ramayana says. How great! So also Anusuyadevi of Bapatla, an holy pilgrimage place. What more can we say! We are blessed to be born in such a great land, Bharath.

Adi Shankara was a beacon light to the society, for, he extricated ignorant from the muddle during 8th century. The masterpiece to his contributions was his great exegeses to our tenets and rituals through Mimamsa. It used to be said in our tharpanas that we owe our ancestors. It is great saints like Adi Shankara, who showed the meaningful path of life to generations. Yes, generations owe him.

8/7/2019

Let us love and live in each other’s heart as long as we live. Thank you for a beautiful post.

Saradha Peetam was adorned by great of great in all respects. Of them Shri Chandrasekara Bharathi, served the humanity, by mid 19th century was an incandescent figure among large number of pontiffs. A genius, even an authority in scriptures, tenets. More than a preceptor, the pontiff was also a social scientist, at a time when Mutt heads used to confine with just serving as preceptors. The Nation’s core strength is that she had great, like Chandrasekara Swamiji. We pay our homage. Thanks for giving an opportunity Sir.

26/6/2019

Yes Sir, a large number of saints, scholars, persons served and risen to aesthetic order contributed to Saivism. That include Bhakthi literature (Bhakthi ilakkiyam) which serve as inspiring treatise to the followers. I concede it is an information to me, your write up on Kashmiri Saint. We should thank for this rare but important information.

24/6/2019

Great Sir for your blog today. Mother Bharath has produced galaxy of great men to serve this great land in all spheres. Frankly, i did not know about the great who has served this great land. The concluding line is an inspiring and true statement. Yes, miracles happen in the lives of such true devotees. Again it is people are the beneficiaries out of such persons’ penance.

20/6/2019

I endorse and supplement Einsten’s: “If we don’t act or react on the matters, history will condemn us as abettors of tolerating such inhuman things! We wish and pray that this trend should end.

18/6/2019

Dear Sir, All we viewers should thank you for paying a tribute to Kakkan ji, a man, who stood as a striking example for all in public life. Unfortunately, seldom we would have come across in the contemporary persons (politicians). All that you have reminisced in today’s blog are natural things in him. No surprise to any body. Why this is mentioned to recall is to-day we have to search such persons. No doubt, in our midst also, today we have good persons, committed to the causes, sans personal considerations. To-day nation is in dire need to have such great leaders for construction and re-construction of the country in all spheres. One day, He will grant us such a situation!

17/6/2019

There is parallel to Vanchinathan’s sacrifice. In our days of freedom movement, which was surcharged by Jalianwalabagh massacre perpetrated by Dyer mercilessly, cruelly, he sacrificed his life after achieving. Nation owes him for his grit, courage, determination and a great sacrifice at the altar of motherland. Even for millennia, his sacrifice to our Mother Bharat will not be forgotten. To-day nation, with its 1.3. billiion people, pay its homage and salute the great. He joins the great patriots Lala Lajapathi Rai. Madanlal Dingra, Veer Savarkar, and many like.

15/6/2019

Read the poem of the great Crazy Mohan in Tamil n ur translation in English is great. This is the first time I come to know that Crazy is also a Devotee of Sairam n also a poet. Let him be under the Lotus feet of Sairam for ever.

11/6/2019

Yes, it is cruel on the part of a small, illiterate people criminally -by a section of people. The reasons are bigotry attitude, false economic reasons and under-estimation of women force and their contribution to the society. The is gainsaying fact that women contribute to the society and country at large more than their men-counterpart, as is evident from the contemporary history even (Madam Indiraji, for example). More than this, can we deny that daughters are more affectionate to their parents than the indifferent sons, in many a case.
In any case this should be condemned in the strongest possible terms. This should go lock-lock-barrel.

8/6/2019

The concluding line, let us green the blue” is an excellent message. The need of the hour too. Ocean occupies major portion in the world. It is a great wealth for all economic activities. For vessels transporting people and serve as a global carrier for goods. Seas have enormous wealth. It is our duty to protect, preserve and use. In our mythology, scriptures, ocean occupies respectable places. Our Yajur Veda declares saying “Samudhrame namadhu bandhu” What more can we say on the greatness of Oceans!

7/6/2019

Before admiring the important points on your post to-day, please permit me to express my view: “…let me a blogger, not a …..” I am afraid the latter is not a relevant for the very reason, your lacs of viewers read, enjoy and consume valuable everyday. What you have written is not relevant, except it suits for coining rhyme, Am I right Sir, I have taken liberty to say this due to my genuine respect and regard to you sir. Your wide knowledge acquired by your vast experiences, natural talents, command over language, knowledge in the matters particularly about the nation at large, are great asset for you, blessed by Him, and they are effectively used for lacs of viewers. I think it is a french word, a derivative.

Thus comes to an end this week’s Sunday Story and I am confident that learned Jagannathan’s feed back are always quite interesting and all my esteemed viewers would have enjoyed the same. Till we meet as usual tomorrow GOOD BYE!

TALE OF A BLOGGER 33

An ardent viewer Mr. A RAMAKRISHNAN honoring the Blogger with a shawl.- Photoed by S. Nivetha

TALE IS A TALE and the teller is a teller! Normally it will be a Sunday Story in ENVIUS THOUGHTS but today it is SATURDAY STORY!

Time and tide waits for none it is said; but tide waits for full moon to blossom to show its beauty in depth!
Time goes on and on, on and on for eternity! Eternity to eternity! It looks February twenty fifth two thousand and fifteen was just yesterday- but it was 1649 days ago! ENVIUS THOUGHTS took birth on 25th February 2015 with its FIRST POST “MY TRYST WITH LIC” and today on 06th June it is SIXTEEN HUNDRD AND FIFTIETH post! Post for a TALE- TALE OF A BLOGGER 33”! (33X50=1650)

As any other writer, I write for my satisfaction. When they are found to be useful to the viewers through my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com, I am indeed delighted and am motivated to proceed further and further, farther and farther! One measurement of my viewers is obviously the overall number of views. Though I am a little uncomfortable that the daily views  is a little dwindled from what it was earlier, I do realize my helplessness in this regard except constantly thinking of how the Blog can be made more interesting.

I am a little sensitive to the daily number of this Blog’s view and overall as I feel it is the measure of viewers’ estimate of the quality of the Blog and hence I feel a little apprehensive whether the Blog is losing its sheen. Except the caption change, this is the continuation of the TALES –every fiftieth post- and in that way this is 32nd TALE OF THE BLOGGER!
Let us have a look at the overall views since the last Tale 32  Caption changed as “TODAY IT IS 1600th” on 19th May 2019..
19/05/2019   11539th  day   1600th post    1,98,161
29/05/2019   1569th day   1611th post       1,99,000
11/06/2019   1582nd  day   1624th post     2,00,000
24/06/2019   1595th day   1638th post      2,01, 000
05/07/2019   1606th day   1649th post     2,02,000

A landmark achievement was crossing the overall views of TWO LAKS on 11th June!  I was indeed  thrilled to receive NATIONAL ICON Award from the GLOBAL RECORDS AND RESEARCH FOUNDATION in appreciation of the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS for crossing two lac views!

Since 19th May, I attended a few Poets Meets in Chennai. That I received Kannadasan Award from  the hands of the son of KAVINGAR KANNADASAN 0n 16th June in an impressive function organized by ILAKKIYACHOLAI will ever remain green in my memories.

Somehow as ill luck would have it, rain miserably failed Chennai and at the request of my well-meaning friends I wrote the following in the ENVIUS THOUGHTS and the rain God blessed with two showers!!

Middle of JUNE is gone-gone sans rains-my God or Nature Why this punishment
To me a citizen of Chennai. I know I have not been good to any,
I do not love all,  serve all-though I say help ever hurt never, I follow not strict
I deserve to be denied of Thy grace Lord Varuna- but not my kith and kin here!

By now year after year we use to get the grace of Rain God –and blessed
With RAIN- this year not till now!. Prayers are on seeking your grace
Every nook and corner- Be kind enough to bring in RAIN to this starved city
Of Chennai. For drinking water and other purposes we do not get water enough.

We pay heavily and exorbitantly for the little water, to those who help us
We can only pray, beg you to bring us rains and do rain water harvesting!
Oh! Lord Varuna-Rain God- kindly lend us your ears and bless us with rain
May all living beings humans and animals, trees and plants get their thirst quenched!

So let us close this Saturday Story with this and continue as usual with the ENVIUS THOUGHTS. GOOD BYE!

Yes today is June 30th– even if it is not a Sunday no bank will be kept open for public transactions as this day is HALF YEARLY CLOSING DAY!

Favorite Blog – is it trumpeting by the self!!!!!!!!!May be , yet  that it has run 1600 days since its launch on 25th February without a day’s break that has fetched a place of honor in the Asia Pacific  Book of Records which in turn has fetched an honorary Doctorate  from the UKL based World Records University!

Recently  Global Records & Research Foundation has honored thye Blog  with NATIONAL ICON REWARD for the Longest Running Blog – ENVIUS THOUGHTS” which reads as:

Within  all the limits of modesty, I can say with pride that maintaining a purely literary one as this is extremely taxing and tiring. Every day a topic is needed and

deciding eats upon our precious time and once decided , matter-content- to be thought of and presented in a pleasing manner lest it may not attract the viewers.

Taking debits and credits, assets and liabilities, receipts and payments – for drawing the Half Yearly Balance Sheet and Trial Balance—for the Blog ……….Oh! My God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some  well-meaning friend of mine asked me once,  in all sincerity how much money I get out of the Blog!!!!!!!!! I don’t know how a literary Blog can earn money!

Daily ‘the number of views’  is my earning and from how many countries?

Assets and liabilities are assessed on the basis of increasing or decreasing number of views every day!

Month      No. of days  No. of posts  No. of views     pda

January 19  31                      31              4600              148

February 19  28                   29              2100                 74

March 19      31                   32                   2000            64

April 19         30                   31                    2200       73

May 19         31                    32                  2400             77

June 19        30                       31                 2200+           74

Nothing can be described as LIABILITY in the Blog disturbing fact is decreasing number of views as is seen above. This makes me seriously analyse the accounts as we have this” half yearly closing”, whether topics and themes chosen for the posts are losing their sheen and what better themes and contents can be  given to my beloved  viewers. I solicit ideas and suggestions in the interest of better closings in the future.

New Receipts are a  a series of INDIAN SAINTS and so far five are over and is to continue for quite some time, will include the Saints and Seers of all religions.

On the asset side of this balance sheet, all my viewers are my assets! About 15000 views for the half year ending today! Viewers  are indeed  the greatest assets of any Blogger and I cannot be an exemption!

There is a regular viewer of the Blog who sends his observation on each of the post- put together for a couple of days in the form of an audio!!! Very interesting they are for those who know Tamil. He is one of my erstwhile colleagues in my great ALMA MATER-Life Insurance Corporation of India- where I learnt the art and science of life and living- that I was fortunate to serve for more than four decades in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan and as a part of my Central office in Mumbai!

He is Shri A.Ramakrishnan now settled in Chennai who hails from Thanjavur District as I am. He called on me yesterday just to felicitate me on my Blog’s crossing TWO LAKHS views!!!!He offered me a grand shawl on the occasion.(

I am sure my esteemed viewers will not be very sensitive to find out and point that normally book closing must be at the end of the day and not as this Half yearly closing in your hands on the morning of June 30th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let us meet tomorrow as usual after you digest this Half yearly Accounts closing  Report!!!

My beloved father used to advise us on all possible occasions that we must be doing something extraordinary in the world that will have a positive impact on the society!

This has been working in mind right from childhood and a stage has come at the age o0f 78+ to assess whether we I could come any where near my father’s advice.

I thought of sharing my thoughts on this subject with my esteemed viewers and the result is REMINDING REWARDS!

I will be doing injustice to the Organizations and individuals if I discuss how far I deserve these Rewards as they are all great in their own way and have not given the rewards casually or just like that for fun. They have their consideration before deciding on the reward and to whom they are given.

Just an ordinary Mathematics graduate of 1961 through Alagappa College affiliated to Madras University and employed in premier Life Insurance Corporation of India for four decades and more- nothing to do with literature! But almost all the above rewards are for literary achievements only! That looks a paradox!

God’s grace propelled an urge in me and in deference to my father’s constant motivation to achieve something in life I put up my efforts and the result is seen in the above rewards.

செயற்கரிய செய்வார் பெரியர்; சிறியர்

செயற்கரிய செய்கலா தார்     (குறள் 26)

The small the path of ease pursue

The great achieve things rare to do (KuraL 26)

I used to say that Thiruvalluvar from his heavenly abode guide me ever and takes me by his hand once I step out of my home and bring me back safe and sound along with Barathiyar and Mahatma Gandhi! In conjunction with my father’s dinning, I put in my efforts in the literary field and by HIS grace, I could achieve something and the lst furnished above is a proof.

BUT THEN……………………………….These REWARDS are constantly REMINDING me not to feel great and take rest but go on with your efforts.

Yes that is how I would say about my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com which is today 1594 days old with 1637 posts- without a day’s break since 25th February 2015! This Blog has earned me a place of HONOR in the ASIA-PACIFIC BOOK OF RECORDS which in turn has made the WORLD RECORDS UNIVERSITY UK to offer me an honorary Doctorate.

The NATIONAL ICON Reward by the GLOBAL RECORD AND RESEARCH FOUNDATION is based on the Blog crossing TWO LAKH VIEWS from more than 200 countries in the world! This constantly reminds me to continue a post every day without fail ‘as long as possible’! – of course “as long as possible” is a million dollar question!

Writing a poem every day from Monday to Saturday and a Sunday story  for every Sunday quite a drain on my mind and body. But these REMINDING REWARDS make me not to look back but proceed with my work –doing as a duty- leaving the fruit for God to decide. BUT DUTY IS OF COURSE A PLEASURE!

Well my dear viewers-sufficient I believe for the week. More than TWO LAKH VIEWS of the Blog, REMINDING REWARDS will give me strength sufficient to think and write every day without fail with God’s GRACE AND BLESSINGS!

My only request and appeal to all my esteemed viewers is only to give me your honest feedback on the Blog and if you feel either the lay out, topics, contents, method will make you more at ease in viewing, definitely I will improve my style. After all a writer, a poet or a singer only needs his admirers to be at ease and comfort and enjoy. Be free to send your kind feedback. We shall meet tomorrow and till then may GOD BE WITH YOU! GOOD BYE!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
REMINDER OF REWARDS
COME WHAT MAY! CONTINUE YOUR LITERARY ACTIVITIES TO DO AND ACHIEVE SOMETHING GREAT AND YOUR BELOVED FATHER FROM HIS HEAVENLY ABODE WILL ENJOY AND CONTINUE HIS BLESSINGS TO YOU.
GOD ALWAYS STANDS BY THE SIDE OF THE TRUE, SINCERE AND HONEST WORKERS WHEREVER THEY ARE AND WORKING.
REWARDS OR NO REWARDS, WORK CONSCIENTIOUSLY -“ACTION IS THY DUTY-FRUIT IS NOT THY CONCERN” LORD KRISHNA’S DIVINE WORDS. WHAT HE TOLD ARJUNA EQUALLY APPLIES TO ALL ON EARTH!

J B N TWENTY FIVE TODAY!

JBN Silver Jubilee Celebration program

One of the leading premier Public Sector Organizations of India that is Bharath our holy Motherland is LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA which was my Alma mater for more than four decades where I learnt the Art and Science of Life and Living! I make my bread and butter even today at past 78!
I have served this great Institution in different parts of the country-Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan- and as a part of our Central Office in Maharashtra.  I have travelled far and wide India for my official duties!
Corporation has developed housing in a very gigantic manner for its employees in some places and for its POLICY HOLDERS in many centers.
Housing for its policy holders is done and in many centers called JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR. In that way we have Jeevan Bima Nagars in places like Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkatta, Delhi, Chennai etc.
Since my last transfer in service in 1998 from Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh to Chennai I have been a resident of JEEVAN BIMA NAGER, CHENNAI where I own a two bedroom flat which I purchased in 1995 when I was in Salem at a total cost of Rs.5, 75,000 including registration charges. A beautiful Nagar by itself one of the biggest in Chennai 944 Flats, Community Hall, Kids World, Youth World, Women’s World etc   within a compound wall and has FIVE  gates in a vast  area under  Ambattur Municipality. –

A quarter century is gone since the colony- a mini BAARATHA NIVAS was born-citizens from North and South, East and West and center – a mini township well taken care of by the office bearers of the JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR FLAT OWNERS WELFARE ASSOCIATION – a Registered Body duly constituted and having a well drafted constitution and bye laws approved by the Government authority right from 1994. Office bearers since inception have been giving their best for the development of the colony and the welfare of the residents. In fact one can confidently say that this JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR IS A MODEL COLONY in Chennai as of now.

The following are SILVER JUBILEE YEAR OFFICE BEARERS:

President: Mr. C. Sundararajan.
Secretary: Mr. P. Boominathan
Treasurer: Mr. Radhakrishnan

Here is my Tamil poem presented on a happy occasion which talks about the greatness of this Jeevan Bima Nagar:. .

ஒற்றுமை ஓங்கவே!

ஒற்றுமை ஒற்றுமை ஒற்றுமை
வேற்றுமையிலும் ஒற்றுமை
ஓங்கவேண்டும் ஒற்றுமை
நாடும் வீடும் ஓங்கிட
வேண்டும் நாட்டில் ஒற்றுமை
வேண்டும் உலகில் ஒற்றுமை!

ஜீவன் பீமா நகரிது
பாரத விலாச நகரிது!                                 8
வடக்கும் தெற்கும்
கிழக்கும் மேற்கும்
கூடி வாழும் நகரிது!

கோலம் கூட ஒற்றுமை
காட்டிக் கொடுத்த நகரிது!
முதற் பரிசும் இரண்டாம் பரிசும்
பெற்றதந்த கோலமே!
ஜீவன் தந்த நகரிது                                   16
பீமா செய்த நகரிது  !
ஜீவன் பீமா நகரிது
நாட்டுக்கே எடுத்துக் காட்டும்
நமது வலிவு மிக்க ஒற்றுமை!

நல்ல சங்கம் நமது சங்கம்
நல்ல வழி காட்டும் சங்கம்
வாழ்க நகரம் வாழ்க சங்கம்
வாழ்க மக்கள் அனைவரும்!                           24

அமைதியும் ஒற்றுமையும்
கைகோர்த்து நடக்கட்டும்!
மகிழ்ச்சியும் மானுடமும்

நாடும் நாமும் ஒன்றெனப்
பாடுவோம் இந்நாளிலே
ஏடெடுத்து எழுதுவோம்
என்றும் நின்று நிலைக்கவே!`                              32.

சேலத்தில் இருக்கையிலே செய்தி வந்தது
சேலத்து மாம்பழமாய் இனிமை தந்தது
ஜீவன் பீமா நகர் பிறக்க வழி வகுத்தனர்
ல்லமுறையில் நாமும் வாழப் பாதை தெரிந்தது!

என்ன இந்த இடத்தில் நமது வீடா
என்ற ஐயம்  பிடுங்கித் தின்றது!
வந்து விட்டேன் ஆறு லட்ச விலைகொடுத்தே!
அந்த நாள் முதல் இந்த நாள் வரை                              40
வந்த நண்பர்கள் வளர்ந்து வந்தனர்!

நல்ல சங்கம் அமைத்து நம்மை
நன்றாய் பேணிக் காத்தனர்!
என்னவெல்லாம் செய்ய வேண்டும் என்று
எண்ணிப்பார்த்தனர் அனைவரையும் ஒன்றாக
அணைத்துச் சென்றனர்! அன்றிருந்த நிலைமைதனை
நினைத்துப் பார்க்கிறேன்!

மேடு பள்ளம் அத்தனையும் நேராக்கினர்                         48
பாடுபட்டு மரங்கள் வைத்துப் பசுமையாக்கினர்
எத்தனையோ வளர்ச்சி என்று
வியந்து நிற்கிறேன்!சிரம் தாழ்த்தி நன்றிதனை
சொல்லி மகிழ்கிறேன்! அவர்கள் பட்ட பாட்டினையே
எண்ணிப் பார்க்கிறேன்! காலை மாலை இரவு என்று
தண்ணீராய் கடமை புரிந்தனர்!காலனியை மேம்படுத்தி மகிழ்ச்சி கொண்டனர்!
என் வீட்டை நான் காப்பது எனது கடமை
என்பதனை என்றும் எண்ணி நடந்து செல்கிறேன்!
கால் நூற்றாண்டை நாமும் கடந்திருக்கிறோம்
மேலும் பல்லாண்டு காலம் மகிழ இருக்கிறோம்1

வாழ்க நகர், வாழ்க சங்கம், வாழ்க மக்கள் என்று கூறி
முரசம் கொட்டுவோம்! இதய கீதம் பாடுவோம்!                  61

News came when I was in Salem
Sweet like Salem Mango it was
Way was laid for the birth
Jeevan Bima Nagar in mirth
Road was seen for our happy life!
IS this the place where we have our house
Doubt began to nag our mind!
Came here purchasing for six lakhs!
From that day to this day
Friendship with many developed
Good association was formed and
Take care of us sound!
What all to be done
Was their constant thought
Took all of us as one together! Think I                                48
The condition that prevailed then
Ups and downs in the roads were leveled
Planting sapplings they made colony go green
So much of development delighted I am
Bowing my heads I gratefully thank them
Morn day and night- never an issue
Did their duties as the water does
Found joy and happiness at the developed Nagar
My duty it is to maintain my flat nice
Conscious I am and do take care
Quarter century we have walked together
Very many more years we are to enjoy
Hail to thee our Nagar, our Association, our people
Let us trumpet aloud and sing the song of joy!                           62

Oh! My Lord, Omniscient-Omnipotent God!
In Thy million creations “blog” gets Thy nod!
Let me be a blogger and sure not a blaggard
Pen is mightier than sword not to go wayward!

Freedom of expression never to be misused
Blogger’s honest followers not to be mislead
I write what I want and know- none to edit sure
No censor; my blogging must be noble and pure!

Matters in millions; subjects are aplenty
Great knowledge and nice language are in my kitty
To be used with sense of responsibility
Goddess of knowledge! Bless me with ability!

Bless me with that control, – thoughts not to run riots
Thoughts meant to make noble, inspire and elevate
The society of which I am part and parcel
May my Blog bring peace, joy, food for thought a morsel!

JAGAN ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part V

 

Image result for Sevalaya photo

Shri N. Jaganathan who is in charge of PR and Publicity wing of my beloved organization SEVALAYA (seen above) about which I have posted a poem on 3rd August 2016 and a Sunday story under the title TEMPLE OF SERVICE (SEVALAYA) on 7th August 2016 in this Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS.
Mr. Jagannathan has become so fond of ENVIUS THOUGHTS that he not only regularly views them but also makes his comments often. I am sure they are quite interesting and hence they form this week’s SUNDAY story; I am confident that you will enjoy them.
Part IV was posted on 5th August 2018. Here is Part V for the delightful reading of my esteemed readers.

Yes, the doctrine ‘Vasudeva Kutumbakam’ was founded and practised by our culture. Our country has given this value to the entire world! We will continue to nourish, come what may, regardless of narrow considerations of some segment of people amongst us.
Yes, camera is only an irreplaceable also an indispensable one in the world of communication and its industry at large. It a great gift of Science given by Eastman!

Thank you Sir, for mentioning Sevalaya in the context of advising people having surplus over their requirements. Yes, I have seen in many families, for generations, that a portion or a certain fixed percentage of their income to go to charities, It is even today practiced and followed. You have rightly mentioned Gandhiji’s view on this. Which human aspect remain untouched by Gandhiji. As Indians it is our pride to have born in Gandhi’s land.

I take a legitimate right to express, he it is not only your LIC Colleague’s liked lines and words on your various posts. His views represent majority of viewers’. The reason is simple. All have come out with conviction that is common in all. Kudos to Mr. Venkata Krishna. Thanks.
We Indians are very much eligible to celebrate ‘siblings day’, for the very reason, Institution of family is very well regarded. Siblings are part of the family. More than that it is India gives the world the concept of “Vasudeva Kutumbakam” – “universal brotherhood” . (when we say this, it does not mean other parts of the world lack this sentiment, they may have different philosophies).

Oh! Great! How beautifully you have glorified men engaged in such a novel soothsaying method! It is unfortunate that this is seen or observed for amusement. They are not recognised, nor appreciated. At least, on seeing your today’s post, people should watch with seriousness and even contribute.

Sir, to-day’s post is timely. People hold diametrically opposite views on vital matters concerning on the return to organic farming. But it is an undeniable fact that the nutrient character of the precious soil suffers once and for all by the extensive use of synthetic pesticides, genetically engineered seeds, among other reasons. In any case it is not without challenge, to mention a few, cost factor, shortage of seeds, lack of understanding and awareness among farmers. In the midst of all these, awareness on this on the increase in the country, particularly in the Agri-hubs of Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, the states blessed with perennial river water sources. Let us be optimistic. I recall, Nehruji gave a clarion call for “Grow more food campaign” which happened to be a core reason for our to-day’s achieving self-sufficiency. We can’t forget the days of famine!

Oh! bunch of information on Penguin. Many of them, many, may not know. Thanks a lot for your today’s informative post.

Yes it has been our custom in our hoary culture, to perform Celestial Weddings. It is in our great faith and a matter of extreme delight. This apart, many among in our midst legitimately believe that if Their wedding is performed, the impediments of performing marriage to the children will be removed, I was told by a genius-discourser. This was the answer given by persons asking why so much celestial weddings are performed everyday. Anusuyadevi heard describing the wedding of Sitamahalakshmi, by herself. This is also interpreted as Thirukkalyanam. How blessed Anusuyadevi.

May I supplement what I remember to have read some decades back? Sir Walter Scott, in his famous poem (a sonnet) “Patriotism” chides, rebukes by saying those do not have the sense of pride of his own land, will go unnoticed to the vile of dust unwept, unhonoured and unsung, however he possessed limitless wealth, power and pelf. Our Bharathi had triggered patriotic spirit in his great poems. Every citizen of every land should learn this and have uncompromising patriotism to his own land.
10/4
Oh, what a great achievement! What to say, several factors would have contributed to this. Your half-century plus experiences, your non stop reading, your serving in a leading public sector undertaking, your friendly viewers across globe and others, and above all Her unlimited grace, among other attributes. You have been contributing every day on valuable topics, many are new to the intended viewers, with a sense of seriousness and missionary zeal. I am afraid, I am less competent to praise you, I concede. I am only a beneficiary. To sum up, I repeat, contents are big and so the container and vice versa. Looking forward to your valuable postings!

5/4
A new and useful one to-day. Humours apart, it is necessary all should choose to walk in every opportunity, and benefit. Abundant availability of facilities has made man lazy at the cost of his own health soundness. Your ‘confession’ that you also provided transports to your children, lest they undergo physical strain, – is an interesting ‘confession’. Besides exclusive walking as a habit in the morning hours, everyone should walk, try public transports and save money and protect health, I think. Though I also err on this, I follow this procedure whenever possible (subject to time constraint).
22/3
Dear Sir, With my poor knowledge and vocabulary, I was under the impression that the meaning for ‘goof’ is fool or foolish. But your today’s blog interprets differently. On the one hand I should thank you and request you on the other hand whether my understanding is right or needs to be changed. My acknowledgement/reaction today is different than the rest Sir.
21/3
Holy festival bears several significance. It is a harbinger of beginning of Spring, destruction of evil for ever, i.e. celebration of victory over evil demons, and many more. It has cultural significance too. In western parts of India, on the streets, young boys and girls make human pyramids to reach a pot on the high place and “steal”. This is to reminiscent krishna’s playful deeds and to say if Krishna steals butter, it wipes out human sins. This was the mythological significance of ‘butter stealing’. All these are demonstrated on this day, in western parts of India. I think this is what I have heard.
16/3
Oh! this is a converse one to yesterday’s. This is more convincing in terms of the contents. But eerything is due to His grace.
11/3
Dear Sir, Satyamoorthy was a great patriot, writer, orator par excellent. Kamaraj and all the national leaders had very high respects for his contributions in the freedom struggle. I had occasion to associate with his daughter Lakshmi Krishnamoorthy, who was also a good orator and patriot. When I used to visit her and her husband (Indian Express), she used to narrate and recall Satyamoorthy’s remarkable talents, memory, and unparalleled public speaking, which was essential during freedom struggle. He was fondly called by his admirers “Silver-tongued-Satyamoorthy”
5/3
Sir, it is altogether a new subject you have chosen today. In my understanding, ‘multiple personality’ and split personality are synonyms. While psychiatrists analyse the cause, many have opined that it is attributed to Childhood trauma, one underwent. Often symptoms used to be such persons may have inflated ego in everything to the detriment of cordial association with others.

This much is for this Sunday Story. We shall continue as usual tomorrow. Till then GOOD BYE!
