In two thousand eight Gillian McAuliffe, Pedagogista and Founder of
Bold Park Community School in Perth, Australia, was at the World Forum
For Early Childhood Care and Education. had a discussion with a colleague
From Nepal about the challenges children face when playing together in the Mud.
On the plane returning from the Forum, thought of the obstacles that Stand among
Children and their ability to enjoy the simple, natural act of Playing in mud.
Challenges – preferences for cleanliness, lack of Access to “disposable”
Clothing that can be dirtied and proper cleaning Supplies, or dry,
Sandy geography not conducive to muddy conditions.
When she returned to school in Perth, she spoke to group of Young ones.
They, in turn, decided to fund to purchase clothing for Nepalese children,
And thus all play in the mud “together”. raised Over one thousand pound,
Paid for new clothing for children in Bishnu, Nepal, where a Mud Day
Event was held for Panchkhal orphanage.
Now, every year on this day, children from all over the world celebrate
International Mud Day as a way to connect joys of playing in the mud!
As mythology would have it Lord Krishna ate mud and got
Reprimanded by HIS mother Yashodha! Children like mud!!!!
Yes this week\s Sunday Story (2029th post) is on WORLD FATHERS DAY! ENVIUS THOUGHTS carried a Sunday story on Mothers Day on 16th May last month which was received overwhelmingly by our esteemed viewers and a few also suggested a post on FATHERS DAY and the effect is today’s Sunday story on FATHERS DAY!
MOTHER IS GOD!
India –sacred land worships one’s mother as
FIRST GOD! They say MATHA, PITHA, GURU, DHEYVAM-First in the priority for respect and reverence, love and affection is MOTHER followed by FATHER, third GURU (Teacher) and FINALLY DHEIVAM that is GOD! Probably because of this we call our country as MOTHER INDIA!
Today Twenty First June being FATHERS DAY, it is apt to have this week’s Sunday Story on that head. 2029th post on the 1973rd day of the Blog!
Fathers Day is a day for many people to show their appreciation towards fathers and father figures worldwide.Events and observations associated with this day is to show our respect and love for father by presenting some gifts- what he likes most if the individual is fortunate enough to have.
Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide to recognize the contribution that fathers and father figures make to the lives of their children. This day celebrates fatherhood and male parenting. Although it is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide, many countries observe this day on the third Sunday in June.
Father’s Day 2020: The third Sunday of June is celebrated as Father’s Day in most parts of the world. Father’s Day is a celebration of fathers, honoring fatherhood, paternal bonds and the role fathers play in society.
The third Sunday of June is celebrated as Father’s Day in most parts of the world. Father’s Day is a celebration of fathers, honoring fatherhood, paternal bonds and the role fathers play in society. This day was first proposed in 1909 to complement Mother’s Day celebrations.
On this day children acknowledge and appreciate their fathers and father figures, who play an important role in their lives, be it emotionally, mentally or even financially. On this day children understand the importance of the role of a father in one’s life. This day acknowledges the contribution of fathers to their own families and society at large. Children buy or make presents for their father or father-like figure, write and draw cards, spend the day engaging in activities that can be enjoyed with one’s father, be it hiking, fishing or just sitting around watching some television. In India especially, most kids have a closer bond with their mothers, so this day definitely helps forge a closer relation with one’s dad.
While India follows the US, and celebrates Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June every year, in other countries including Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Italy, Father’s Day is celebrated on March 19. And even though this is a Western tradition started in the United States of America, it has gained a lot of prominence in India in the past many years.
The day was founded in USA, where it is celebrated on the third Sunday of June, at the Spokane, Washington YMCA in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd. That year, Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910. Sonora heard about how Anna Jarvis had founded Mother’s Day in honor of her mother and told the pastor of her Church that there should be something similar to celebrate fathers too. Sonora’s father was Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, a single parent from Arkansas who raised six children. Sonora was hoping that Father’s Day celebrations would be held on June 5, which was her father’s birthday, but the Church’s time constraints ended up pushing this day and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June.
My father – one of the most loved and respected teachers/Headmasters who died at the age of 87 in the year 1987 served lived in Karaikudi and spent his retired life in Thanjavur. Highly principled and what he preached, he practiced. He brought up his three sons including me in a way that stand up in good stead even today when I have just stepped into my EIGHTY! Whether it is taking walks in the very early mornings and evenings or visiting temples every day twice, reading, writing, loving all and helping all and hurting none and so on, I am regularly following the guidelines given by my beloved father till his death.
Fathers’ Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.
In the hierarchy of Indian persons to be
Revered and respected “FATHER” stands next to the
MOTHER and before TEACHER and God! Great indeed is he
“Fathers’ day” observed all over the world on twenty first June right!
In the creation of God and the noble thoughts of the
Human beings-father and fatherhood have a special
Place of honor-the role he plays sacrificing his self
For his family-kith and kin- great and noble self!
On this sacred day, let all pray, revere and respect
Godly fathers-responsible for what they expect
For their welfare- joy and peace, health and happiness ever
In their old age, take care-keeping them in old age home never!
I am happy that this day gave me a nice opportunity to think of my beloved father. I do hope that post-Sunday story would have been of interest to all our valuable viewers. We shal meet as usual on Monday and till then Bye!
To be born as a human being is the gift of God- Lord Almighty!
Health is wealth and if health is lost something is lost one has to be careful!
To keep healthy, good food and nice exercises do help at all ages.
Walking, jogging, running, cycling all help to keep health quite trim!
Sauntering indeed is one form of walking of course in a different style!!
Nineteenth June is today-World Sauntering Day is observed all over
Encouraging people to slow down and enjoy life rather than blindly rushing .
World Sauntering Day created in nineteen seventy nine by W. T. Rabe.
Jogging was rapidly gaining popularity, and Rabe was worried
That people may forget how to relax and appreciate the world around them.
World Sauntering Day was born.
Sauntering is a specific style of walking not to be confused
With sashaying, prancing, strutting, or trotting. It is walking
In a slow and relaxed way, typically in no particular direction.
On this day, let us put on comfortable clothes and go for a walk
To enjoy life instead of rushing somewhere and running errands.
Let us not combine sauntering with walking with our dog;
Our pet may distract us from enjoying our-self!

World BOOK Day is this day-Twenty Third April-Are you able to hear
Many mocking derisively at the books and readers who find pleasure?
These people know not how to spend time usefully and worthwhile!
Books provide knowledge to all- I am not concerned I have other sources!!!
Unfortunately placed is our society today
Where book culture has become culture of yesterday
Fast moving times deny the habit of reading
No time to stand and stare at the great books for enjoying!
Writers regret, publishers find it hard to go ahead
Despite Book fairs increasing and sales soaring above head
Habit of reading by youngsters declining fast and strong
Make our system change, parents aware of their wards!
Days of the ebooks are, we are aware and welcome too
World is worried on the decline of book culture as such
Bless us my God! Restore the noble culture in all
Writers to serve, publishers to prosper, and society stand tall!

Let Him give us all the knowledge through the books!
Post Lunch SLEEP called NAP a debatable topic for quite a long time
Notwithstanding lot of people cannot be without a nap for some time
At least! Many like me indulge not in this pleasure in their life!
May be a habit-good or bad- according to the individual!
May be not for office goers for decades- cannot become a habit
Developing post retirement- or a continuing habit
Unknown to others and unseen by colleagues!!! something very great!
May be for them NAP is a way of spending some time in a day!
Any principle involved in NAP or NO NAP! Sure there must be
Nap is physically bad- as one gets fatter some say-may be right!
Nap helps compensation for the no last night sleep -or coming night!
Matter of one’s will and opinion- we tamper not that right!
Sure I must tame my tongue
Lest I fall in the fire of dung!
Rests in it the sweetness of speech
Wisdom flows as you nicely preach!
Sour or sweet, tongue knows the difference
In the world of food, it has its preference!
When left untamed and let loose
We falter and let tongue to choose
The nasty road that leads to hell
Slow but sure follows the death knell!
The tongue unbridled and untamed
Leads in fact to uncontrolled words
Makes life difficult and ill-famed
Even our good friends made to cross swords!
Tamed tongue breeds nice health and peace
Through words sweet and food nice with ease!
Look at the great Indian Idlis on this World Idli Day-great to see
Greater to enjoy with coconut chutney and onion sambar!
In hotels always accompanied with pongal and vada on our order
Of course! At homes only idlis other than in festive occasions!
Made of boiled rice and black gram and salt made into a dough a day
Earlier for it to get fermented appropriately – can be used for dosa also!
Idli taken with sesame oil or ghee or curd for breakfast or after noon tiff in
Or night dinner- for that matter any time in the day as substitute
For regular food! Harmless food as not roasted in oil or boiled in oil
Boiled in water for children or elders or sickly people!
Green in memory, for more than a quarter of a century our break fast was
Only IDLI thanks to my beloved father’s insistence! he used to have
One or many days half an idli! On the day of his death in the year
Eighty seven at his age eighty seven he had half an idli as breakfast!
Bored of idlis, if any alternative made for us he should have only idli
Though half only! Memories green at my seventy nine!
Come on let us hasten to taste delicious idli only at home
As we cannot go out as the hotels are closed thanks to CORONA!
In Chennai HOTELS daily more than TWO LAKHS idlis are prepared according to a recent survey! Besides thousands of idlis in houses!!!
Sponge like Idlis with the flowery touch! Idli of ideal making!
Man with his routine hard and sustained work needs leisure very sure
Leisure time can be spent constructively if only there is mind pure
May be readings, writings, listening to U TUBE prayers and manthras
