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!

17th October- Anti-Poverty Day.

 

Image result for Images for Anti Poverty day 2018

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!

REVERED RENUKA RECALLED!

Displaying IMG_6021.JPG

Revered Renuka with her soul mate and sons and daughters like daughters- in- law.

The moving finger writes and having writ moves on. Yes, that moving finger of my life wrote and having writ moved on- my beloved better half was snatched away by that moving finger in the form of cruel hands of death and destiny exactly four years ago. That fateful day was Wednesday, the 20th August 2014. Today is 20/8/2018.. What all I could at that time was to put in my outpourings in the form of a write up “END OF AN ERA”. If any of my viewers are interested to read I can send personally by email. Please let me know your mail id .Thanks.

Here is my tribute to her paid  on the fourth anniversary.

Revered by  her better half ,children, friends and relatives
Painful Four years have passed-since the cruel hands-destiny
Snatched her away from us all to mourn and murmur, of course cry
Individually sans the knowledge of each other-pity!

Greatly beloved daughter of God Almighty was she from birth
Chose to take her to HIS heavenly abode through the arms of death
Not before testing and torturing bit by bit for days and days
When God wills, none could help and win – she fell from HIS grace!

Beloved daughter of her loving parents, affectionate sister
Of her brothers and sister, dedicated friends to all her classmates
Four decades four years dutiful wife for her husband and soul mate
Caring mother, teacher and guide for her children next to God!

Highly educated and equipped with knowledge- to the envy
Of many! For her walking mates all in all; speaking politics,
Music, discourses, and health in channels many acrobatics
Fine aunty she was to children and youngsters wherever she was
With care and concern for the weak and poor, loving and serving all
All shedding tears though years four are gone -tragedy tall.

Well read and decently qualified with a double degree
Ever fond of reading books and magazines; great devotee
Of Mother, Aurabindo, Babas and Hindu Gods well devoted
Sharing knowledge, helping ever, hurting never-with grace!
Fateful day it was twentieth August twenty fourteen
Revered Renuka Recalled to her heavenly abode
Leaving me in eternal grief and loneliness -hard to come out
Albeit all love and affection showered by all others at home!

She is REVERED RENUKA

ALL BECAUSE OF ALLAH !

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.

Image result for donate a day's wages to charity

“Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity Day “is this holy day
Wednesday, May ninth, the second Wednesday of May
Since the year two thousand! a thoughtful day
To make the people think of charity an act very noble!

In the creation of the Lord Almighty- there are poor and rich
Rich have to extend hands of help to the poor to make them feel
They are not orphans and the society is there to help
Though all out attempts must be made to help them earn through efforts!

How much I can spare to donate? May be a day’s wages I get
Noble thought-noble action- charity to the disabled best!
Old and debilitated unable to move, work and earn
It should be the peoples and society’s greatest concern!

TALE OF A BLOGGER 24!

 

Today it is 1149th day of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and 1200th post necessitating the TALE OF A BLOGGER in tune with the tradition of the Blog!
This tale 24 is again for the second time unique (is it peculiar!?!?!?)- as it is a SATURDAY STORY and not a SUNDAY STORY as usually the TALES come only on SUNDAYS in the last three years. Blog has entered into the FOURTH year and I wish this is not a forerunner for the things to come! Yet these two TALES appear on Saturdays!!!
Normally the Blogger makes it a point to give a longer story instead of a twelve line poem on Sundays when the viewers will be more at leisure and can comfortably read a longer write. This week it has so happened that 1200th post also falls on a Saturday as the 1150th did and could not be negotiated and hence this TALE 24 comes as a SATURDAY STORY and the Sunday Story will appear on 22nd April on the chosen subject!
It is extremely gratifying that with the grace of the Almighty GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY, WORD PRESS and my esteemed viewers the Blog has travelled to its 1200th post happily and uninterruptedly since its launch on 25th February 2015.
As is the practice we shall look into the progress of overall views of Envius Thoughts since the last Tale 23 on 3rd March 2018:
09/03/2018 1106th day- 1156th post- 1,35,000
16/03/2018 1113th day 1163rd post- 1,36,000
21/03/2018 1119th day 1169th post – 1,37,000
27/03/2018 1124th day 1175th post- 1,38,000
01/04/2018 1129th day 1180th post 1,39,000
08/04/2018 1136th day 1187th post 1,40,000
20/04/2018 1149th day 1200th post 1,41,

In this way number of views is strongly progressing giving a sense of achievement. I take pride and pleasure to communicate the crossing of every 1000 views to all my well wishers through all possible manner- WhatsApp, Facebook two Accounts, Bloggers’ Meet-Up, gmail and so on!
I am often reminded of a quote that I read about 57 years ago,, while I was a student of Alagappa College, Karaikudi: “Art and Literature of the highest order cannot flourish in a world that is increasingly becoming mechanical and the society a rocket”! Yes in these fast food days where and how does one find time for literary activities!
Yet there are several groups devoted to foster literature of different genres. Envius Thoughts has already carried Sunday Stories on CHENNAI POETS CIRCLE, VIJAYAWADA poets group and so on. There is a nice group= of course a little sophisticated and dwell in the higher ranges of POETRY World-the group known s INDIA POETRY CIRCLE from Chennai. They innovate activities among the members and go ahead in great way.”CONFLUENCE “ in one such activity a nice anthology! In writing poem one poet will contribute one line each! First line from the first poet, 2nd from the next, 3rd from the third and so on!
They meet every month and present their poems and discussions ensue! A great experience indeed!
The IPC has members from different parts of our Motherland -East and West, North and South!
One of the members is a retired Professor of English from Kerala who became a little close to me and our esteemed viewers will find her thoughts on Envius Thoughts as Sunday Story tomorrow! Tale of the Blogger has yielded place to a new Poet in the blog! I am sure the story will be enjoyable!


During the Tale period, a new anthology was brought out with the name and title “METVERSE MUSE GOLDEN JUBILEE ISSUE” from Vishakapatnam beautifully and scholarly edited by a veteran Poet and Editor DR. H. TULSI a detailed review of this work was published in this Blog on 18th March. (can be viewed from the archives of March 2018).
Opportunities are provided by the Lord almighty in any form and in many forms!
One such came to me a couple of days back. A poem was written by an young girl suffering from terminal cancer nd the hospital authorities from abroad have sent it all over the globe and I have sent the same to about 300 friends of mine-poet and non poet friends by mail. I reproduce the same with a request “LET US HELP”.
Slow Dance
This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer.
She wants to see how many
people get her poem.

It is quite a poem, please pass it on.
This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a
New York Hospital.
It was sent by a medical doctor Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.

SLOW DANCE
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last..

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift….
Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

FORWARDED E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL COUNT.

Dear All:
PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know –
even to those you don’t know!
It is the request of a special girl, who will soon leave this world
due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to
live their life to the fullest, since she never will.
She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school,
or get married and have a family of her own.

By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a
little hope, because with every name
that this is sent to, the American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name
to her treatment and recovery
plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6.

It’s not even your money, just your time! Pls read n forward … !!

My esteemed viewers are the first to be shared with of the news of your favorite  Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is getting into the ASIA PACIFIC RECORD BOOK- promotion from national level -INDIA BOOK OF RECORDS!-

So we end this TALE 24- a Saturday Story with a resolve “LET US HELP”. Thanks . Tomorrow a regular SUNDAY STORY THOUGHTS on THOUGHTS will greet you early in the morning!.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS DAY IS TODAY

 

 

Let us be a scribe to a blind student taking examination
Let us lead a blind man across the road to other side of road
Let us see the old tottering man waiting for the bus to get into
Let us remove the banana peel left on the middle of the road
Let us guide the little girl missing on the way and restore her
Let us rush to help a man who has fallen from his running vehicle
Let us rescue that little dog fallen under the wheels of a cycle
Let us greet the post man or a scavenger with a chocolate
………………………………………………………
…………………………………………………..
……………………………………………………..!

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS day is today the seventeenth February
The day I was officially born on this happy earth years
Seventy seven ago, in my holy Motherland India that is Bharath!
To love and live, to help and serve the known and unknown, big and small
Rich and poor- irrespective of the class and caste, creed and color!
That is the way we can repay the debt of gratitude to the Creator!

 

 

FRIEND OF TREE PART 4

Asked Casuarina with a pride on its face: Do you know me, friend?
Replied I with smiles: Very well, who can be without knowing you?

Asked the tree: What are you attracted with me?
With joy I replied: Your tall stature making me to think
I must be as tall as you in my knowledge, thoughts, words and deeds!

Said casuarina: That is great! I wish you all well. About my uses to the society?
Said I: You are in the sea shore to avoid sea erosion and windbreaks and firewood.
You help our poor people to build their thatched huts.
You are in use for putting up pandals.

Said the tree: My resin exuded is edible and a food source for Aboriginal people
Iparted saying: Great going, we are grateful to the Almighty for having created you.
