Seventh December today – a day to show our gratitude to our great
Indian Armed Forces who are engaged in protecting our holy and sacred
Motherland India that is Bharat-sacrificing their personal comforts
And conveniences living far far away from their family for long!

Indian Armed Forces Flag Day is today to donate our might for their welfare
Flag Day of India dedicated towards collection of funds from people for welfare
Of the Indian Armed Forces personnel. observed annually since ninety forty nine
A tradition as an honour to the soldiers, sailors and airmen of sacred India.

Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India, on December 7, 1954 said:

“A few weeks ago, I visited Indo-China and saw our officers and men attached to the International Commission there. It gave me a thrill to see their smart bearing and the good work they were doing in that distant land. What pleased me still more was their general popularity with the people there. By their efficiency as well as their friendliness, they enhanced the reputation of India. Among them were people from all parts of India. They observed no provincial or other differences amongst themselves. I am sure my countrymen will be pleased to learn of them and would like to indicate their appreciation of these young men who serve our country both here and elsewhere so well. A way to indicate that appreciation is to contribute to the Flag Day Fund.”

Homage to a Saint.

Here is a poetic tribute in Tamil by Pulavar  Ramamoorthy of Santha Vasantham, Chennai:

தருமையரு   ளாதீனத்   தலைவர்   என்னும்
     தனிச்சிறப்பால்  சைவத்தை   ஆண்ட வேந்தர்
ஒருமையுடன்  திருவருளை  உலகத்   தார்க்கே
      உரையாலும்  செயலாலும்  வழங்கி  வாழ்ந்தார்,
குருமுதல்வர்   எனநமக்கே  ஆசி   நல்கி
      குவலயத்தில்  சைவநெறிக்  கொடியை  ஏற்றித்
திருநெறிய   தமிழ்வளர்த்த  சீர்வ   ளர்சீர்
        தேசிகரின்  திருவடியே  சிந்திப்  போமே!
In English
By the fact of his being the head of Dharmapura Adhinam
         He ruled over the SAIVITE branch of Hinduism
God’s greatness  to the people of the faith with focus
        He his actions and words graced the faithful and lived.
As chief Guru He blessed us gracefully
       Hoisted the flag of tenets of Saivism
And developed the divinity of Tamil language
     Let us worship His divine feet and receive His grace!
