Moments in the country’s contemporary history:

The hands of a group of armed men led by U Saw,
Aung San’s political rival, who burst into the
Secretariat, a large colonial building in downtown Yangon
And used Sten guns to wipe out a significant part
Of the Burmese leadership.That is the day today!
My holy and great Motherland gave birth to several greats
To take care of hard won freedom and its democratic values

The finest King Maker of India ever seen and had
His selfless service and sacrifices made him the noblest

ON VIRTUE (Araththuppaal)
GLORY OF GOD
“A” leads the language

Like peacock’s plumage! 1
Learning lacks meaning
If the learner believes not
In Him – protecting! (2)
He surely lives long
Who seeks the feet of the Lord
To whom the noble throng! (3)
To the one who clings
To HIM beyond likes-dislikes
No woes the life brings! (4)
Who sings in HIS praise
Seeking HIS love and grace
Freed from the sins nice! (5)
For long he lives for sure
Who treads HIS path sans desires
In this world – pure! (6)
Who seeks not HIM whose
Compassion beyond compare
Never free from worry’s woes! (7)
He can’t cross the sea
Of sins if he thinks not HIM
Indeed Virtues Sea! (8)
Those heads that pray not
The God of eight virtues sure
Have eyes and ears just dot(s)! (9)
Those who pray the Lord
Nicely cross the sea of birth
Others don’t – face woes! (10)
