Probably that is why Lord Krishna in Bhagawath Geetha said:
“KarmaNyaeva adhikaarasthae, maa phalaeshu kadhaachana”
Meaning :“Action is Thy duty and fruit is not your concern”. That is what our great Hinduism will say “Nishkaamya karma”. It is very difficult to follow in real day today life. Yet worth developing the attitude lest the sufferers are only we!
I remember my olden days in the service of a premier public sector organization where there was a cler dichotomy – marketing officials and administrative officials. Marketing officials were deemed to be great motivators and they were very much competent to deliver motivational addresses to the marketing force. I was basically an administrative official. Yet while was in Madurai a suggestion came that I should address a group of marketing force. I started with the statement “ எங்கெல்லாம் எதிர்பார்ப்புக்கள் அதிகமாக இருக்கின்றதோ அங்கெல்லாம் ஏமாற்றங்களும் அதிக மாக இருக்கலாம்”. That is in order to ensure that they get back not disappointed! But to my great surprise and delight, every one assembled ,about 100, was extremely happy and they insisted that I must continue! Towards the end of my meeting with the Agents-the primary marketing personnel of the LIC of India, always I quote my mentor from his heavenly abode Mahakavi Bharathiyar thus:
பாரத பூமி பழம்பெரும் பூமி
நீரதன் புதல்வர் இந்நினைவகற்றாதீர்!
பாரத நாடு பார்க்கெலாம் திலகம்
நீரதன் புதல்வர் இந்நினைவகற்றாதீர்!
பாரத ஆயுள் காப்பீட்டு நிறுவனம்
பார் புகழ் நிறுவனம்-
நீரதன் முகவர் இந்நினைவகற்றாதீர்!
உங்களுடைய வெற்றியும் தோல்வியும், பெருமையும் சிறுமையும், வாழ்வும் தாழ்வும்,
இந்த நிறுவனத்தின் வெற்றியும் தோல்வியும், பெருமையும் சிறுமையும் வாழ்வும் தாழ்வும் இந்த் நிறுவனத்தின் வெற்றியோடும் தோல்வியோடும், பெருமையோடும் சிறுமையோடும் வாழ்வோடும் தாழ்வோடும் பின்னிப்பிணைந்து இருப்பதால் உங்கள் ஒவ்வொருவருடைய, எண்ணமும், சொல்லும் செயலும் இந்த நிறுவனைத்தை எப்படி வெற்றியடையச்செய்ய முடியும் என்றே அமையவேண்டும் என்று வாழ்த்தி விடை பெறுகிறேன்”.

In English, great National Poets Words and its improvement to suit my objective:

The land of Bharath is ancient one
You are her children-forget not!
Country the Bharath is the crown of the world
You are its children-forget it not!
Life Insurance Corporation is a world admiring Institutions
You are its Agents- forget it not!
Your success and failure, greatness and triviality, life and death stand intertwined with that of the Institution, may your thoughts, words and deeds be for carrying the Institution to greater heights!
With this wishing you all the best I take leave!

As this method of commencing and addressing my marketing I adopted this as my style and in the course of my thirty years of career in a higher level in the Corporation I would have addressed 1000s of Meetings which were satisfactory to me and the audience.
Well, let me not digress much from the theme!



I recollect a great Novel written by Charles Dickens titled GREAT EXPECTATIONS. In this Sunday Story I would like to spare with my esteemed viewers for the benefit of those who have not come across the great work.
Great Expectations is the thirteenth novel by Charles Dickens and his penultimate completed novel; a bildungsroman that depicts the personal growth and personal development of an orphan nicknamed Pip. It is Dickens’s second novel, after David Copperfield, to be fully narrated in the first person. The novel was first published as a serial in Dickens’s weekly periodical All the Year Round, from 1 December 1860 to August 1861. In October 1861, Chapman and Hall published the novel in three volumes.
The novel is set in Kent and London in the early to mid-19th century[3] and contains some of Dickens’s most memorable scenes, including the opening in a graveyard, where the young Pip is accosted by the escaped convict, Abel Magwitch. Great Expectations is full of extreme imagery—poverty, prison ships and chains, and fights to the death[4]—and has a colorful cast of characters who have entered popular culture. These include the eccentric Miss Havisham, the beautiful but cold Estella, and Joe, the unsophisticated and kind blacksmith. Dickens’s themes include wealth and poverty, love and rejection, and the eventual triumph of good over evil. Great Expectations, which is popular both with readers and literary critics, has been translated into many languages and adapted numerous times into various media.
Upon its release, the novel received near universal acclaim. Although Dickens’s contemporary Thomas Carlyle referred to it disparagingly as that “Pip nonsense,” he nevertheless reacted to each fresh instalment with “roars of laughter.” Later, George Bernard Shaw praised the novel, as “All of one piece and consistently truthful.” During the serial publication, Dickens was pleased with public response to Great Expectations and its sales; when the plot first formed in his mind, he called it “a very fine, new and grotesque idea.”

The plot Summary is reproduced from Wiki Pedia:
On Christmas Eve, around 1812, Pip, an orphan who is about seven years old, encounters an escaped convict in the village churchyard, while visiting the graves of his parents and siblings. Pip now lives with his abusive elder sister and her kind husband Joe Gargery, a blacksmith. The convict scares Pip into stealing food and a file. Early on Christmas morning Pip returns with the file, a pie and brandy. During Christmas dinner, at the moment Pip’s theft is about to be discovered, soldiers arrive and ask Joe to repair some shackles. Joe and Pip accompany them as they recapture the convict who is fighting with another escaped convict. The first convict confesses to stealing food from the smithy.
Pip is ashamed of Joe at Satis House, by F. A. Fraser
A year or two later, Miss Havisham, a wealthy spinster who still wears her old wedding dress and lives as a recluse in the dilapidated Satis House, asks Mr Pumblechook to find a boy to visit. Pip visits Miss Havisham and falls in love with her adopted daughter Estella. Pip visits Miss Havisham regularly, until he is old enough to learn a trade.
Joe accompanies Pip for the last visit, when she gives the money for Pip to be bound as apprentice blacksmith. Joe’s surly assistant, Dolge Orlick, is envious of Pip and dislikes Mrs Joe. When Pip and Joe are away from the house, Mrs Joe is brutally attacked, leaving her unable to speak or do her work. Orlick is suspected of the attack. Mrs Joe becomes kind-hearted after the attack. Biddy arrives to help with her care.

Four years into Pip’s apprenticeship, Mr Jaggers, a lawyer, tells him that he has been provided with money, from an anonymous benefactor, so that he can become a gentleman. Pip is to leave for London, but presuming that Miss Havisham is his benefactor, he first visits her.[15]
Pip sets up house in London at Barnard’s Inn with Herbert Pocket, the son of his tutor, Matthew Pocket, who is a cousin of Miss Havisham. Herbert and Pip have previously met at Satis Hall, where Herbert was rejected as a playmate for Estella. He tells Pip how Miss Havisham was jilted by her fiancé. Pip meets fellow pupils, Bentley Drummle, a brute of a man from a wealthy noble family, and Startop, who is agreeable. Jaggers disburses the money Pip needs
When Joe visits Pip at Barnard’s Inn, Pip is ashamed of him. Joe relays a message from Miss Havisham that Estella will be at Satis House for a visit. Pip returns there to meet Estella and is encouraged by Miss Havisham, but he avoids visiting Joe. He is disquieted to see Orlick now in service to Miss Havisham. He mentions his misgivings to Jaggers, who promises Orlick’s dismissal. Back in London, Pip and Herbert exchange their romantic secrets: Pip adores Estella and Herbert is engaged to Clara. Pip meets Estella when she is sent to Richmond to be introduced into society.
Pip and Herbert build up debts. Mrs Joe dies and Pip returns to his village for the funeral. Pip’s income is fixed at £500 per annum when he comes of age at twenty-one. With the help of Jaggers’ clerk, Wemmick, Pip plans to help advance Herbert’s future prospects by anonymously securing him a position with the shipbroker, Clarriker’s. Pip takes Estella to Satis House. She and Miss Havisham quarrel over Estella’s coldness. In London, Bentley Drummle outrages Pip, by proposing a toast to Estella. Later, at an Assembly Ball in Richmond, Pip witnesses Estella meeting Bentley Drummle and warns her about him; she replies that she has no qualms about entrapping him.
A week after he turns 23 years old, Pip learns that his benefactor is the convict he encountered in the churchyard, Abel Magwitch, who had been transported to New South Wales after that escape. He has become wealthy after gaining his freedom there, but cannot return to England. However, he returns to see Pip, who was the motivation for all his success. Pip is shocked, and stops taking money from him. Subsequently, Pip and Herbert Pocket devise a plan for Magwitch to escape from England.
Magwitch shares his past history with Pip, and reveals that the escaped convict whom he fought in the churchyard was Compeyson, the fraudster who had deserted Miss Havisham.
Pip returns to Satis Hall to visit Estella and encounters Bentley Drummle, who has also come to see her and now has Orlick as his servant. Pip accuses Miss Havisham of misleading him about his benefactor. She admits to doing so, but says that her plan was to annoy her relatives. Pip declares his love to Estella, who, coldly, tells him that she plans on marrying Drummle. Heartbroken, Pip walks back to London, where Wemmick warns him that Compeyson is seeking him. Pip and Herbert continue preparations for Magwitch’s escape.
At Jaggers’s house for dinner, Wemmick tells Pip how Jaggers acquired his maidservant, Molly, rescuing her from the gallows when she was accused of murder.
Then, full of remorse, Miss Havisham tells Pip how the infant Estella was brought to her by Jaggers and raised by her to be cold-hearted. She knows nothing about Estella’s parentage. She also tells Pip that Estella is now married. She gives Pip money to pay for Herbert Pocket’s position at Clarriker’s, and asks for his forgiveness. As Pip is about to leave, Miss Havisham accidentally sets her dress on fire. Pip saves her, injuring himself in the process. She eventually dies from her injuries, lamenting her manipulation of Estella and Pip. Pip now realises that Estella is the daughter of Molly and Magwitch. When confronted about this, Jaggers discourages Pip from acting on his suspicions.

Magwitch makes himself known to Pip
A few days before Magwitch’s planned escape, Pip is lured by an anonymous letter into a sluice house near his old home, where he is seized by Orlick, who intends to kill him. Orlick confesses to injuring Pip’s sister. As Pip is about to be struck by a hammer, Herbert Pocket and Startop arrive to rescue him. The three of them pick up Magwitch to row him to the steamboat for Hamburg, but they are met by a police boat carrying Compeyson, who has offered to identify Magwitch. Magwitch seizes Compeyson, and they fight in the river. Seriously injured, Magwitch is taken by the police. Compeyson’s body is found later.
Pip is aware that Magwitch’s fortune will go to the crown after his trial. But Herbert, who is preparing to move to Cairo, Egypt, to manage Clarriker’s office there, offers Pip a position there. Pip regularly visits Magwitch in the prison hospital as he awaits trial, and on Magwitch’s deathbed tells him that his daughter Estella is alive. After Herbert’s departure for Cairo, Pip falls ill in his rooms, and faces arrest for debt. However, Joe nurses Pip back to health and pays off his debt. When Pip begins to recover, Joe slips away. Pip then returns to propose to Biddy, only to find that she has married Joe. Pip asks Joe’s forgiveness, promises to repay him and leaves for Cairo. There he shares lodgings with Herbert and Clara, and eventually advances to become third in the company. Only then does Herbert learn that Pip paid for his position in the firm.
After working eleven years in Egypt, Pip returns to England and visits Joe, Biddy and their son, Pip Jr. Then in the ruins of Satis House he meets the widowed Estella, who asks Pip to forgive her, assuring him that misfortune has opened her heart. As Pip takes Estella’s hand and they leave the moonlit ruins, he sees “no shadow of another parting from her”.

In due course we shall see the characters and their characteristics in the novel which are indeed very interesting.
Those who are interested further will do well to read the entire novel which is bound to be quite interesting.

Normally I don’t reproduce from other sources. This was so interesting I was tempted to. Kindly enjoy. We shall meet tomorrow.



                  IN THIS LONELY DARK CORNER

Leave this chanting and singing and telling of beads! Whom does thou worship in this lonely dark corner of a temple with doors all shut? Open thine eyes and see thy God is not before thee!

He is there where tiller is tilling the hard ground and where the path maker is breaking stones. He is with them in sun and shower and garment is covered with dust. Put off thy holy mantle and even like him come down on the dusty soil!

Deliverance? Where is the deliverance to be found? Our master himself has joyfully taken upon him the bonds of creation; he is bound with us all forever.

Come out of thy meditations and leave aside thy flowers and incense! What harm is there if thy clothes become tattered and stained? Meet him and stand by him in toil and sweat of thy brow. with a sense of service

As I see:
According to Tagore, temple is not the place of God; the God whom Tagore sees dwells in the hearts of the poor, laboring, noble hearted and with a sense to serve all.We can also feel and see HIM if our heart is pure and noble, serve the society,practice good thoughts, words and deeds.

Quite interesting presentation of an involved career spanning a period of nearly four decades. I remember the association I was privileged to have with you in Thanjavur D.O. during late 1960 s,when,we were together in P.h.s. and you used to give the highest number of revival quotations and acted as a role model for others to follow. I cherish the association We had on subsequent occasions when you were heading Bikaneer and subsequently Cuddapah. divisions of L.I.C. and even after your retirement when you Visited Hyderabad as a Trainer of Bajaj AllianZ. Best wishes for a Long, healthy future.

Dear Sir, it was nice reading your autobiography relating to your experiences in LIC. I too had the good fortune of working with you (not under you…!! while you were MM at Salem and I was Sr.BM at Salem North) I was also receiving your copies of “Young Poet” and used to enjoy going thru’ the poems. I remember one of your advises that you gave me when I told you that I was transferred to Delhi in 2001, you told me… keep your head cool and your feet warm.
Sir, I wish you all happiness, joy, good health and prosperity in your life….

“WORLD THINKING DAY” is today as if the world thinks not on other days!
This day celebrated annually by all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
Also celebrated by boy-oriented associations around the world.
A day when they think about their “sisters” and “brothers” all over the world!

To think of the meaning of Guiding, and its global impact
Twenty second February -the birthday of Scouting and Guiding
Founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell and of Lady Olave Baden-Powell,
His wife and World Chief Guide. Other Scouts observe asFounders’ Day.

My memory goes back to fifties when as Shivaji TROOP LEADER
In my Karaikudi school days I observed the day with my troop
Six decades ago still green in mind-badges, scarf and khaki
Colored dress and beret and shoes! “BE PREPARED” on lips!



In the course of gradual evolution of humanity
Language- a great landmark as a facility in society
To communicate with each other indeed an innovation
Different languages In the domain of communication!

One’s mother language is more sacred and important than others
The day the child is able to hear and understand language
Mother language gets ingrained in its mind to last for ever

The day to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural
Diversity and promote multilingualism. Though there are
Six thousand nine hundred and nine languages approx.
One’s Mother language has its own charm and beauty to be proud of!
