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!
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.”
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!
Sevalaya, Pakkam village
Uthavum karangkal-Children taking food.
“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!
Poverty manifests through hunger with no food available
Pity in HIS creation- people in poverty horrible
Go without food begging, stealing or fasting for years in life
Lacking employment and earn to take food and feed his family!
Affluent are many on their own or at the cost of others
Not ready to give and take care of those in poverty-alas!
Exploitation has its own impact negative on poverty.
Anti poverty Day is this day the seventeenth October!
Tamil Patriotic Poet Bharathiyar would say for sure:
No more exploitation of snatching the food of one by others
We shall make a rule and law; keep it forever- come what may
If any one goes sans food, we shall destroy the whole world-hey!
Blogger visited Nagore Dargha with his d-in-law on 10th June.
“Nawaitu sauma ghadin anadai fardu syahri
ramadhana hadzihissanati lillahitaala”
I intend to do obligatory fast tomorrow in the month of
Ramadan this year because of Allah
“Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu
wa alayka tawakkaltu wa ala rizq-ika-aftartu”
O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You And
I put my trust in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance
A great month of fasting has come to an end
That was the opportunity given to me to mend
If I had done anything wrong considered as sin
I become by HIS grace good and noble and serve fine!
Of all the world religions, Islam is one that
Trains and makes its followers to be nice and great
To live in peace and amity through its practices.
Today is one such holy day RAMADAN-end of fasting month!
INSHA ALLAH! MASHA ALLAH” -all the Islam’s watchwords
All praise to HIM! May Islam flourish true to HIS teachings.
