My grand father one of the leading High Court Advocates did not.
Despite Acharya’s desire to meet, he budged not!
Acharya said , if NKR Iyer* is not coming, he would go to
Nagari Mahal and meet my grand father. At last Shri NKR Iyer agreed
On condition when calls on Acharya, he will not sit on the ground,
Nor bow to Acharya and so on. Acharya agreed and arranged
For a chair to NKR Iyer. Young Acharya, by his wisdom and intelligence
Made my grand father revise his resolve and he bowed to Acharya
And the Peetam in the traditional practice! Greatness of Acharya

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!

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!

I think that everything published made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
what if you wrote a catchier post title? I am not saying your content is not
solid, however suppose you added something that makes people want
more? I mean UNIQUE NELLORE – Envius Thoughts is a little plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
news titles to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a picture
or two to get readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your
posts a little bit more interesting. https://bahastopikgosip2.blogspot.com/2018/09/kakak-syahrini-lakukan-hal-tak-biasa.html

TRUE SIR! “If the farmers refuse to work and keep quiet, even the saints and sages cannot continue with their prayers and penance.”

But it is unfortunate that the farmer is not getting his due share in the crop he produces. Only the middlemen are making money out of his toil.

It is a pity that still he is the victim of vagaries of nature particularly the rain God Varun…. ativrishti and annavrishti.

Young or old, healthy or sick everyone likes cake- tasty cakes

Look at the cakes home made by Sharada our daughter in law
Developed as a hobby but friends throng to her to get cakes with awe
That made her a specialist cake maker at home in Bangalore
Very delicious to look at and taste- all will concur sure and pure!
