June 15th- WORLD ELDER ABUSE AWARENESS DAY

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day - CNPEA

Today’s Twenties are tomorrow’s Forties, day after tomorrow’s
Sixties! Sixties and above designated as ELDER! None living
Can avoid being an ELDER and the attendant abuse sure
Better to be aware and prepare to protect- simple and pure!
Abuse by the youngsters at home, youngsters outside  both are possible
Abuse by nature -health problems a source of abuse horrible!

In Tamil it is said: முற்பகல் செய்யின் பிற்பகல் விளையும்”
Whatever we do earlier, we shall reap it later! Let us not abuse
Elders when we are young! We shall suffer  as we become elders!
Not only let us not abuse elders, but go all out to be of use and help!
Elders suffering on the road, let us rush to be of use and assistance
A way indeed to show our respect for elders known or unknown!

Rightly said, my Lord, blood is always thicker than water
Blood in red- has life and love, health and joy all that matter!

The sufferers with love-seeking love in return valued wealth!

In Sivaji Troop- patrol Leader and Troop Leader in  about
Seven years – respected by student friends and admired by teachers!
When in uniform with a prestigious scarf felt as if in Army serving the Nation
Days in the Movement turned to be days with great passion!

Image result for Image of Lord Rama fondling the squirrel

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~!

To another- may be American I was in my previous birth
And now in this birth an Indian-migrated from America!

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.

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.

National Thrift shop Day-AUGUST 17.

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!
