Stress and strain part of our life-age and employment, wealth and health
Have little to impact-negative or positive, negative and positive! a paradox!
What stress can do can be experienced- more important is to be aware of stress
And the ways to be away from or not to fall a victim to stress!
Today April sixteenth is National Stress Awareness Day. The day
Designed by the Health Resource Network in nineteen ninety two to raise
Awareness of stress. Day is a chance to take a deep breath and relax.
Stress has a negative effect on the immune system -research has proved.
Chronic stress takes greater toll on our body than acute stress.
Raises blood pressure, increases the risk of heart attack and stroke,
Anxiety and depression, hastens the aging process.
Stress is one omnipresent
Easily coped sure by the competent
On the body and on the mind
On the soul and on the intellect
Age and sex, wealth and status
Stress of-course has little respect!
Faith in God, self and people
Fair to all with love and scruple
Thoughts noble and deeds worthy
Happy hobbies and habits healthy
Yoga sure a medicine for stress
Love for nature, animals and people
Through stress and strain nothing can topple!
Man – the roof and crown of God’s creation indeed is great!
Peculiarity and uniqueness a part of His creation- neat
Peculiar or unique question raised on an individual
Depending on the manner in which one behaves-practical!
January tenth to day is a peculiar day-
Unique Day too! Praising in honor of the PECULIAR S!
Peculiar People Day a day to celebrate the leaders
Of the unusual and strange, the peoples who refuse
To succumb the world idea’s which is sane and reasonable.
Challenge status quo and rebuke the concept extraordinary!
May be in their style, they simply dress or having ideas
Peculiar People’s day for Peculiar peoples to shine!
Let their be UNIQUENESS positive and noble people
And not peculiar to be laughed and joked sans scruple!
NATIONAL Day OF SILENCE is today in America
For reasons peculiar on the last April Friday
It is twenty seventh of April this year-this post
Deals not with the reasons quoted by Americans-the host!
In our context SPEECH IS SILVER AND SILENCE IS GOLD
Great words of wisdom to follow from the days of old!
Silence gives greater peace- leads not to acrimony
Always providing and sponsoring fund of harmony!
What they call me a chatter box-I can not keep quiet
At least this day onward I have to develop the art
And science of SILENCE!-helping to save Energy nice
Not speaking out of tune and incur displeasure of others!
In the great creation of the Lord Almighty
All living beings do communicate rightly
In their own languages-man has his own on top
People in crores and languages in scores-quite sharp!
languages are their to promote love and respect
Peace and harmony in the society perfect
Languages have alphabets, words and nice meaning
When applied clear with love ensures noble living!
Alas! When one finds nicely spoken Words hollow
With no intention even remotely to follow
All his promises of doing turns deeds shallow
Like the rain water falling in the lands fallow!
Holiest day in a year is tomorrow-GANDHI JAYANTHI DAY
Great Father of our sacred Motherland- India that is Bharath-Way
Ahead of many world countries in aspects several thanks to his vision
Whose unceasing efforts and unparalleled leadership guided with a mission!
The whole nation owes for eternity its gratitude and respect great.
Unfortunate that the murderer of that great soul is sought to be honored
With statues and books on the wretched; no redemption for the ungrateful;
On this day sacred and holy, let us resolve to uphold Gandhism-be redeemed!
Truth and non-violence when adopted as solution for all evils
Peace and harmony will rule the Society and throw away all ills.
Sure not theoretical or bookish but was demonstrated by him
Hail that great Mahatma- revered by the world around, our minds trim!

Man has his ego

Sure I know I came from my mother’s womb
And equally sure I will be interned in tomb
When and how is only the question
About which I don’t worry now is certain!
During this life what I do is important
How I behave and serve my kith is pertinent
Before birth and after death, Hell or Heaven
None can tell me in valid pattern
Mystery it is that none from Hell or Heaven
Chose to brief me on how are matters! !
Hell, one says, is nothing but torture and agony
Heaven, other admits, is full of joy and nectar
Hell, one says, is reserved for the wicked and sinners
Heaven, other admits, is meant for the kind and sacred!
To me Hell or Heaven is here and now
Well in the manner I think, speak and vow
To do things in style that will bring joy
To think of things that will bring cheers
To speak of words that emit sweetness
To one and all my brothers in distress!
Why think of unseen Hell or unknown Heaven
While Hell or Heaven is made by you and me seven!
Resolve to provide Heavenly joy and nectar
And give best you can to every sector!
