Squirrel indeed one of the cutest creations of the Almighty
Moving fast and jumping here and there nice- very casually
Won the heart of lord Rama by helping in its own way
Earning three  permanent stripes on the back sings this way!

Oh, my Lord, the Almighty among your million creations
A creature tiny I am, yet proud of my birth –admiration
Showered on me by Lord Rama whose fingers three fondled
On my back for the little service rendered for making the bridge!

Trees of all sizes and shapes, house tops big and small make my home
At will, with ease and peace, joy and poise, I jump here and there roam
Sing in praise of the Lord and His creations, eat sweet fruits and nuts
To my heart’s content right from the trees and plants with strong guts!

Blessed with voice melodious, I make others enjoy my songs
Young and old, healthy and the sick, one and all like my voice
I served the Lord along with men and monkeys to build the bridge
May you my friends, build bridges of love and friendship with all to live!

On this happy squirrel appreciation day twenty first January
Let us learn a lesson or two from the squirrels’ life to follow
Help others- solicited or not- in a measure very small or otherwise
Helping ever and hurting never as our motto in life very wise~!

In a way all the people all over the world are migrants only
We were born and died several times in the past- migrated from one life
To another- may be American I was in my previous birth
And now in this birth an Indian-migrated from America!

International Migrants Day is today the Eighteenth December
Observed in accordance with Resolution of the United Nations
General Assembly, adopted in December Two Thousand.
International Convention was for the Protection of the Rights
Of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.
For dissemination of information on human rights and fundamental
Political freedom of migrants, and for the protection of migrants.
Let us on this day save and serve the migrants in all possible means!

Volunteering for any good cause is gradually on the wane
In the fast food days everyone is concerned with one’s own!
Here is a day today Fifth December International Volunteer Day
To make me conscious of volunteering to be of assistance to all!

International Volunteer Day desired by the United Nations
General Assembly, is  viewed as a unique chance for volunteers and Organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and
To promote their work among their communities, non-governmental Organizations, United Nations agencies,  and the private sector.
Programme contributes to peace and development by advocating
For the recognition of volunteers and working with partners to integrate
Volunteerism into development programming. Great objective indeed-great.

The diverse and dynamic role of volunteerism in promoting the Sustainable Development Goals merits strong support from Governments and other stakeholders. On this International Day, I thank volunteers for their efforts to leave no one behind. Secretary General’s gratitude expressed.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres

Image result for Images for National Thrift Shop Day 2019

What a great concept put into practice in America for long?
August Seventeenth-third Saturday of August every year
Is NATIONAL THRIFT SHOP day -a day eagerly looked forward by all
To make purchases of whatever they need at more or less half the rate!

Budget bound poor and middle class people are everywhere desiring
Purchase of furniture or utensils, books or shelves, fridge or ACs
At the concessional rates in those thrift shops- not compromising
Quality or color of our choice -great opportunities sure and pure

Shops collect the used ones and recondition them – restoring their
Originality and the not so rich with low budget at disposal
Make use of the seemingly fun day and equip their homes very well
Indeed a nice concept and well put into practice regular-helps all!

WORLD REFUGEE DAY June 20th.

 Every minute 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution or terror

In a way I feel we are all refugees sent by the creator Almighty
To this world for a temporary phase-but our lives made  worthwhile rightly!
But real refugees are unfortunate people becoming refugees
Due to external reasons-very miserable and atrocious to the core!

World Refugee Day marks a key moment for the public to show support
For families forced to flee.June Twentieth today is World Refugee Day.
Every year is observed with different themes declared by United Nations
This year’s theme is Global Compact on Refugees.indeed very important one.

It calls for investment in communities that host refugees to help ease
The pressure on the host and to help refugees become self-reliant.
Some important quotes on this:
Albert Einstein: “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything”

Kofi Annan: “I urge you to celebrate the extraordinary courage and contributions of refugees past and present.”

Anne Frank: “How wonderful it is that no one has to wait, but can start right now to gradually change the world! How wonderful it is that everyone, great and small, can immediately help bring about justice by giving of themselves.”

Martin Luther King Jr: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

BE A MILLIONAIRE DAY 20th May

Image result for be a millionaire day may 20

Shall I say let me be a MILLIONAIRE? No let me a CROREPATI-
Million has not much of a value today as much as a CRORE!!!!!
It’s Be a Millionaire Day! Today an opportunity to dream big
And imagine what life would be as a millionaire! a crorepati!

A million dollars isn’t what it used to be, seeing a seven-
Figure number in our bank account is still financial milestone.
Rightly Gandhiji said if one has more than what he needs, balance
Be held as a custodian for others-poor and downtrodden!

If not cent per cent a major excess can go to orphanages
And old age homes in plenty in the world! Sevalayas and
Uthavum Karangal are there all over needing funds from the public!
Let us help to the extent possible on this awareness occasion!

WORLD SAVINGS DAY- 31st October

Image result for Images for world savings day 2018

“Look at the ants and learn the habit of saving for the rainy day”
The nice and great advice we have been hearing since our childhood days!
Rainy days are inevitable for every one in life-old
Age bound to come and we do need wherewithal to live life of gold!

Several ways of savings-the days were there when the people of olden
Days used to keep all their savings money or gold kept in vessels and
Keep it under the grounds in the corner of their dwelling- never used
Treasures we find here and there and supposed to be given to the Government!

Savings to be done -not putting every thing on one plate- skill
Of savings to be developed through training and experience-still

Sixth sense helps a lot! October 31st today WORLD SAVING DAY

Let us start savings and teach our young ones also -to have a nice future!
