He has infinite talents in the film media and he had produced many short films like “Veeramangai Velunachiar”, a film on the brave historical women, “Ellaiyilla Paarvai” – Vision beyond boundaries. These films had the vision to create values in the younger generation. The short film titled “Kadavulai Kandaen “– Saw the Almighty – a real story of Sethu Bhaskara School student, “Bimbam” -to highlight the value of parents and the need to take care of them in their old age and the film titled “Kalviyin Kaimaru”-to inculcate the humane quality of compassion in the mind of everyone are some of his exemplary works and masterpieces.

He is the Correspondent & Managing Trustee of the Sethu Valliammal Educational Trust which renders yeomen service to the society by running many educational institutions of repute, which include:

Sethu Bhaskara Matric. Higher Secondary School (Recognised by Govt. of Tamilnadu), Pudur, Ambattur.

Dr. Ikeda Karunayagam, Anna Nagar West, Chennai.

Sethu Bhaskara Technical Institute, (Recognised by Govt. of India and Govt. of Tamil Nadu)Kandramanickam, Sivaganga Dist.

Soka Ikeda College of Arts & Science for Women (Affiliated to Madras University) , Madhanangkuppam, Chennai 600 099.

Sethu Irani Matriculation School, Kandramanickam.

Sethu Bhasakara Agricultural College and Research Foundation, Visalayankottai, Karaikudi.

Dr Sethu Kumanan holds the prestigious post of the Honorary Senate Member, Middle East University, Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. He is the Editor & Publisher Iniya Ikeda ( An International Magazine) and the Managing Trustee, Village Community Hall – Sri Manickanachi Amman Marriage Hall, Kandramanickam, Sivagangai Dist.

He has visited many countries and participated in several International Poets Conferences. They are  Meets held in Turkey, Israel, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia, Finland, Slovakia, S. Korea, Mexico, Greece, Romania, U.S.A, Switzerland, Australia, Mongolia and Hungary. He has visited more than 60 countries encompassing all the continents and far-flung areas like Arctic and Antarctic regions of the world.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan aspired to achieve something significant in the field of education. With the moral and financial support of his maternal uncle and father-in-law Mr Sethu Bhaskaran, he started a school in 1988 under the banner “Sethu Bhaskara Matriculation Higher Secondary School” at Pudur, Ambattur, Chennai 600 053 with just eight students. The school has now grown up with the guidance and support of numerous well-wishers to the extent of producing state ranks. The school strength is now nearly 8000.

The school imparts value-based education to children, who are mostly first-generation school-goers. Hailing from an economically backward family, Dr Sethu Kumanan could appreciate how financial difficulties could hinder the academic progress of an individual. Sethu Bhaskara MHS school offers concessions within its means and occasionally beyond, to the needy, so as not to deprive a child of knowledge just for want of money.

In Sethu Bhaskara, apart from offering free education and fee concessions to the wards of their staff, the school tries to extend the facility to other students also – parentless, fatherless, financially backward and on medical grounds. Around 248 students enjoy free education. These students and the visually- challenged will come under the banner Dr. Ikeda School Students. The meritorious students – proficient in academics as well in sports are given free education to encourage them and to motivate other students.

Sethu Bhaskara School enjoys the pride of being the first English Medium School in India to launch Integrated Education for the visually-challenged children. The School Management willingly and happily bears the responsibility of providing free education, transport, uniform etc. to the twenty-two visually-challenged students who are covered by this scheme.

The most striking part of this scheme is the mingling of these students with the students in the general stream, by which they attend classes along with the normal children in the regular classrooms. As these children are able to mingle with other students, they gain the confidence that they can cope up with the peers who have normal vision.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan strongly believes that it is not enough just to sympathise with the visually-challenged. Instead, we should see what best can be done for them. That is the reason why all efforts have been taken to initiate to help the visually-challenged enjoy their rights to live happily as others do, by giving them education, which is like eyes to every human being.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan started an Industrial Training Center in his native village Kandramanickam in the year 1997 “ Sethu Bhaskara I.T.C.” with an aim to make them capable bread-winners. The students are trained in different fields – Fitter, Wireman and Electrician etc. Around 300 students have successfully completed the course and are now comfortably placed locally and abroad. He has also started Sethu Irani Matric.Hr.Sec.School in the year 1998 to impart education to students in his native village. More than 500 students are studying.

Taken up by the viewpoint of the great Japanese philosopher Dr.Daisaku Ikeda, an enthusiastic educationist and ardent follower of Gandhian principles, Dr. Sethu Kumanan decided to follow his path. Dr.Ikeda, his mentor, fervently believes in educating the people of the rural area and in the empowerment of women. His adoration for this noble personality lead to the founding of a college exclusively for women, an institution to cater to the educational needs of the rural women in the name of the renowned educationist “ Soka Ikeda College of Arts and Science for Women, Chennai 600 099 in the year 2000. Rightly as the banner specifies, the college imparts value-based education.

It is a matter of pride that the college has been identified as the “Institution of Excellence” by the National Advisory Committee of Indian Council of Gandhian Studies, New Delhi for the services in the field of women’s education and empowerment.

The Father of our Nation has said, Agriculture is the backbone of our nation. However, it is disheartening to see that agriculture is being denied prominence and fields are being transformed to plots for construction. With a vision to revive the interest of the younger generation in farming, he has started Sethu Bhaskara Agricultural College and Research Foundation at Visalayankottai, Karaikudi Taluk, very close to his native place, Kandramanickam, Sivagangai District

Dr. Sethu Kumanan’s dreams are thus coming true by the Grace of God and the good wishes of countless well-wishers. There are yet many dreams of his to take shape, in the words of Robert Frost.

“And miles to go before I sleep And miles to go before I sleep”.

His service in the field of Education is tremendous. Pudur and Madhanangkuppam have found their place in the Indian map of education on account of Dr.Sethu Kumanan. Here is a great man who strives for women empowerment. Thanks to his noble vision, many girls of the rural area of Madhanangkuppam have become graduates and have been placed well in reputed organizations.

The best feature of his character is his humility. It is this humbleness that makes him all the more a great personality.

A helping hand to the needy “hands that help are better than the lips that pray.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan is a benevolent giver who is ready to help the needy. He has helped so many financially backward students in their education.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan hosted SIXTEEN Mexican Poets in the MEXICAN POETRY CENTER in his college referred to above in which several Indian poets including this blogger were invited. College was the venue of the Meet.

October 6th-MAHA SAPTAMI

Image result for Images of Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati

Religions’ noble objective is to unite the entire humanity with the bonds of LOVE and HARMONY, RESPECT and REGARDS. In India our holy Motherland in particular, by our tradition and culture respect all Religions and coexist with the followers of all religions and with the freedom of worship enshrined in our great Constitution we have temples and churches, mosques and Gurdwaras are abound in all places-East to West and North to South!
Rightly our Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi always stressed upon religious unity and all Indians-Hindus and Muslims, Christians, Parsis and Jains all involved voluntarily in our freedom struggle under Gandhi’s leadership and won historic freedom purely with the weapon of NONVIOLENCE AND TRUTH.
Very nobly he sang Ramdun every day in his prayer meetings:
ரகுபதி ராகவ ராஜாராம்
பதீத பாவன சீதா ராம்
ஈஸ்வர அல்லா தேரே நாம்
சப்கோ சன்மதி தே பகவான்!
Sunday the sixth October today is MAHA SAPTAMI day -Seventh day of Festival of Nine Nights called DUSSEHRA and NAVRATRI.
The seventh day of the Navratri festival is celebrated as Maha Saptami. During the grand Durga Puja festivity of 9 days, there is vital importance of the seventh day which is observed as Maha Saptami. As per the Hindu calendar, the day is celebrated in the month of Chaitra during Shukla Paksha on Saptami. According to the Gregorian calendar, the day falls in the month of March or April.

What is the Significance of Maha Saptami?
The day of Maha Saptami holds great significance as devotees worship Goddess Durga and seek her divine blessings. During all the nine days of the Chaitra Navratri, devotees worship and offer prayers to Hindu Goddess Shakti. It is believed that during the festivity, nine different incarnations of Goddess Durga are revered and worshipped across India. The day is also celebrated as Gudi Padwa in the states of Maharashtra, Ugadi in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and various other southern states and also as the beginning of the Hindu New Year.

The festivity and celebrations of Maha Saptami begin with offering a sacred bath to Navapatrika. It comprises of nine different plants including Paddy, Banana, Jayanti, Colacassia, Pomegranate, Ashoka, Turmeric, Arum Plant, and Bel. All these plants are together tied with Koyala and Aparajita plants and then Navapatrika is formed. This represents the win of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura.

At the time of war with Mahishasura, Maa Durga created eight different war partners called ‘Ashtanayika’. These nine different plants are the symbols of these eight war partners and Goddess Durga.
TOMORROW the seventh October is Durgashtami:
2019 Mahashtami, Durgashtami
Mahashtami, also known as Maha Durga Ashtami, is second day of Durga Puja. Maha Ashtami is one of the most important days of Durga Puja. Durga Puja on Maha Ashtami begins with Mahasnan and Shodashopachara Puja (षोडशोपचार पूजा) which is very much similar to Maha Saptami Puja except Prana Pratishtha (प्राण प्रतिष्ठा) which is done only once on Maha Saptami.

On Maha Ashtami nine small pots are installed and nine Shaktis of Durga are invoked in them. All nine forms of Goddess Durga are worshipped during Maha Ashtami Puja.

Young unmarried girls, being treated as Goddess Durga itself, are also worshipped on Maha Ashtami. Worshipping of young girls during Durga Puja is known as Kumari Puja. In many regions Kumari Puja is done during all nine days of Durga Navratri. Kumari Puja on a single day during Durga Puja is preferred on Maha Ashtami.

The legendary Sandhi Puja is also falls on Maha Ashtami. The time window of the last 24 minutes of Ashtami Tithi and the first 24 minutes of Navami Tithi is known as Sandhi Time or the holy juncture during Durga Puja. Sandhi time is considered the most auspicious time during whole Durga Puja. Sandhi Puja is the culmination point and the most important ritual of Durga Puja. It is customary to perform Balidan or animal sacrifice at this sacred juncture. Devotees who abstain from animal sacrifice perform symbolic Bali with vegetables like banana, cucumber or pumpkin. For Brahmins any type of animal sacrifice is prohibited by scriptures and Brahmin community does only symbolic Bali. Even the famous Belur Math in West Bengal does symbolic Bali with banana during Sandhi Puja. It is customary to light 108 earthen lamps during Sandhi Kaal.
Here is a poem composed by Mahakavi Subramanya Bharathiyar on Navratri in Tamil, its transliteration and translation:

ஓம் சக்தி ஓம் சக்தி ஓம் சக்தி (உஜ்ஜயினீ)
2. உஜ்ஜய காரண சங்கர தேவி
உமா சரஸ்வதி ஸ்ரீ மாதா ஸா (உஜ்ஜயினீ)
3. வாழி புனைந்து சங்கர தேவன்
தோழி, பதங்கள் பணிந்து துணிந்தனம் (உஜ்ஜயினீ)
4. சத்ய யுகத்தை அகத்தி லிருத்தி
திறத்தை நமக்கருளிச் செய்யும் உத்தமி. (உஜ்ஜயினீ)

Let us on this auspicious festival of Nine Nights invoke the grace and blessings of Durga for valor, Lakshmi for Wealth and Saraswati for learning and knowledge- three eternal needs of human beings!
With this we end this week’s Sunday story and we shall meet as usual tomorrow. Till then GOODBYE!

பாரதிரப் பாடிய பாரதியை
பாடிடவே நாட்டம் வைத்தேன்
வானதிரக் குரல்கொடுத்த புலவனவன்
பெருமைதனைப் போற்றிடவே ஆவல் கொண்டேன்!
பக்திவெள்ளம் பாய்ந்திடவே
பாமாலை தொடுத்திட்ட பேரறிஞன் பாரதியைப்
புகழ்ந்திடவே உவகை கொண்டேன்!
சுதந்திரத் தீயினையே நாட்டினிலே எரியவிட்ட
உயர்ந்த தமிழ்க் கவிஞனுக்குப் புகழாரம்
சூட்டிடவே திட்டம் வைத்தேன்!
பாஞ்சாலி சபதம் தந்த பாவாணன்
பெருமைதனைக் கூறிடவே ஆசைகொண்டேன்!

நூறாண்டு நம்மனதில் வாழ்ந்துவிட்ட
பேராண்மைப் பெரியவன்தன் கொள்கைதனை

ஊரெங்கும் உணர்த்திடவே சபதம் செய்வோம்!

மதந்தனிலும் சாதியிலும் பெருமையில்லை
மனிதனாய் வாழ்வதில்தான் பெருமையுண்டு
என எண்ணத்தால், செயலால் வாழ்ந்த
ஒற்றுமைக் கவிஞன் வாழ்ந்த நாட்டில்
மதத்தின் பெயரினிலே சாதியின் வெறியினிலே
குழப்பம் செயும் சழக்கர்
குழுவினர்தம் சதிதனையே முறியடிப்போம்!
பாரதி கண்ட ஒருமைப்பாட்டை
பாரதத்தில் நிலைபெறச் செய்திடுவோம்
இந்நாட்டின் ஒற்றுமைக்குத்
தீங்கிழைக்கும் தீயவரைத்
தீயில் இடுவோம்!
எந்நாளும் பாரதத்தின் புகழ் மணக்கப்
பாடுபடும் நல்லோரின் அடிச்சுவட்டில் நடந்திடுவோம்!

 

Here is the poem presented by S.Nivetha
HIDDEN TREASURE…!

    1.     Nivetha

12/2045, Jeevan Bima Nagar
Chennai 600101

When we started thinking of finding a correct path;
It automatically shifts and pulls us to the wrath;
We usually met many people while we travel;
We come up with many struggles and battle;
Everyone does not get the same treasure;
Every people’s treasures have different measures;
Focusing on your goals is treasure;
So, take it as positive pleasure;
Imagination and expectation towards finding things are worst;
Execute what you think to fulfill your thirst;
The treasure was nothing but the people’s mind;
But the words spoken out from their mind made me blind.

BIO DATA:
