“International Women’s day” is today with the theme great
“PRESS FOR PROGRESS”-the wonderful creation of God- a treat
Yet treated unequally by the male chauvinism pity.
Let us PRESS FOR FREEDOM and salute with respect-a reality
India That is Bharath sees women as incarnation of God
India is our MOTHER LAND and NOT FATHER LAND rightly my Lord!
It is MOTHER TONGUE and not Father tongue=tribute to women
Everything revolving around MOTHER-womanhood-great God!
Mahakavi Bharathi sings in praise of modern woman:
When men and women are equal deemed
Our brains on earth will burgeon, it seems;
Clothed in virtue, in women’s form here,
Is the very Goddess, Our Mother, it seems;
Fear and shame to dogs belong,
Wisdom, virtue, freedom and courage
Are a well-born woman’s natural traits —
You heard these claims of that heavenly girl?
A straight look and an upright gait,
Brows that fear none on earth,
A pride arising from mature knowledge
Will keep a woman steadfast, it seems.
A woman’s duty, we are told,
Is to spit on the darkness of ignorance
And a hapless, sunk, uncultured life —
Did you hear that prophetic lass?
மூத்த பொய்ம்மைகள் யாவும் அழிப்பராம்
மூடக் கட்டுகள் யாவுந் தகர்ப்பராம்;
காத்து மானிடர் செய்கை யனைத்தையும்,
கடவு ளர்க்கினி தாகச் சமைப்பராம்;
ஏத்தி ஆண்மக்கள் போற்றிட வாழ்வராம்;
இளைய நங்கையின் எண்ணங்கள் கேட்டீரோ!
Many and many a lore they will learn;
Many and many a deed they will do;
Destroy all the hoary lies;
Raze down all the stupid blocks;
All that men have done so far
They will reform for God’s assent;
Earn man’s regard by the way they live
Did you listen to that youngster’s aims?
None can praise the Divine WOMEN in words
Better than Mahakavi Bharathi bard of bards!
The time that my journey takes is long and the way of it long.
I came out on the chariot of the first gleam of light, and pursued my voyage through the wilderness of worlds leaving my track on many a star and planet.
It is the most distant course that comes nearest to thyself and that training is most intricate which leads to the utter simplicity of a tune.
The traveler has to knock at every alien door to come to his own and one has to wander through all the outer worlds to reach the innermost shrine at the end.
My eyes strayed far and wide before I shut them and said “here are thou”.
The question and the cry “Oh, where?” melt into tears of a thousand streams and deluge the world with the flood of the assurance “I am!”
Human life is a long and arduous journey. If we lead a simple and noble life we can see the Lord Almighty. We need not traverse a long distance to see HIM. There is no need to search for him here and there. The Omnipresent Almighty can be felt through Divine music and noble living.
கீதாஞ்சலி 12 ஆம் பாடல்
பயண நேரம் மிக அதிகம்
பயண தூரம் மிக நீளம்
இனிய பயணம் துவங்கியது
அழகு வாய்ந்த ரதத்தில் நான்
அமைதியாக வலம் வந்தேன்!
பரந்த உலகில் பயணம் தொடர்ந்தேன்
விண்மீன் விண்கோள் கடந்து வந்தேன்!
தொலைதூரத்தில் உணர்ந்தேன் நான்
அருகில் உள்ளதைக் கண்டேன் நான்
நடைப் பயிற்சியில் நன்மை கண்டேன்
இனிய இசையின் எளிமை ரசித்தேன்!
தனது வீட்டைத் தான் அடைந்திடவே
அன்னியர் கதவை தட்டிச் சென்றான்
மனது அறியா பயணி அவன்
அண்டம் முழுதும் அலைந்து வந்தான்!
இறுதியில் உள்ளே கருவறை என்பதை
இறுதியில் உணர்வதே மனித இயற்கை!
உறுதியாய் சொல்வேன் இங்கும் அங்கும்
திரிந்தது பார்வை; உடனே மூடினேன்
தெரிந்தது உருவம், தெளிந்து சொன்னேன்
”இருப்பது இங்கே இறைவா” என்று!
” ஆ!எங்கே?” என்ற கேள்வியும் கதறலும்
கரைந்தது கண்ணீரில்; பெருகியது ஆறாய்!
பிரளயமாய் மாறி உலகிற்குரைக்கும்
”நான் இருக்கிறேன்”” எனும் இறைவன் வாக்கு!
மனித வாழ்க்கை என்பது ஒரு நீண்ட, நெடிய பயணம். எளிமையான வாழ்க்கையில் நம்மைப் படைத்த இறைவனைக் காணலாம். அவனைக் காண
நீண்ட தூரம் அலைய வேண்டியதில்லை. இங்கும் அங்கும் தேட வேண்டியதில்லை. எங்கும் நிறைந்த இறைவனை இனிய இசையாலும், நேர்மையான வாழ்விலும் உணரலாம், காணலாம்.; கண்டு அவன் அருளைப் பெறலாம்.

My first son was born on 25th November and MY FOURTH SON NAMELY ENVIUS THOUGHTS WAS BORN ON 25th FEBRUARY!!!!!! Of course there is a vast difference in the years- first son in 1971 and the FOURTH in 2015! I deem and treat my BLOG ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com as a MEMBER OF MY FAMILY and I spend more time on my FOURTH SON and not on my SECOND AND THIRD sons in Bangalore and Canada respectively!!!!
I remember my second son a journalist in Bangalore designed the Blog and made me to post every day. The posts will have photos every post and I have received a lot of encomiums on the appropriate selection of photos for the posts! Every Sunday there will be a SUNDAY STORY and all the week days Monday to Saturday English poems will be the posts. Poems will be translations of great Tamil works of Saint Tamil Poet Thiruvalluvar, National Poet Mahakavi Bharathiyar, Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi of Thiruvannamalai, tamilnadu and so on.

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….

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
INTERNATIONAL MOTHER LANGUAGE DAY is today-to forget never!
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!
A great poet and politician she was- Nightingale of India- nice
Born in a Bengali Hindu family this day in Eighteen Seventy Nine
In a family of leading poets and politicians- studied in Chennai
And at King’s College London, later at Girton College, Cambridge!
Worked with Mahatma Gandhi, Gokale and Annie Besant played great
Role in the long journey to freedom – Congress President she was
Imprisoned for her political activities – natural treat
Witnessed the birth of FREEDOM at MIDNIGHT- UP Governor she was!
We salute the great lady on this memorable day-her birth day
Several volumes of prose and verse to her credit- a treat
To lovers of literature- rightly named Nightingale of India
Her name indelible and her memories to last for decades!
Great national poet Mahakavi Bharathiyar declared
“To be born as a woman on earth, great penance one should have made”!
That is the veneration our Motherland shows for woman
This day we observe as “National Girl Child Day”-respect by man!
Bharathi said:”Burn the idiocy of denouncing womanhood”
Alas a pity in a land that reveres Woman as Goddess
In forms many- sad we get news of insults on women each day
In one part of the country or other to be ashamed of-sad!
Equal they are in HIS creation -distinct role they have to play
Noble family they make and more responsible than the menfolk
Today’s GIRL CHILD is tomorrow’s WOMAN- let us celebrate the day
And resolve to take care of the girl child much more than the boy!
