FATHERS’ DAY 18th June

Father's Day

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 eighteenth 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 shelf!

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!

This Blogging has become a passion for me and as such I spend quite some time on this every day. I have already mentioned that looking at the statistics and recording the same in my diary has become a routine. Many a time, I ruminate about the purpose and the effect of my postings, how best to improve upon the theme, content and expression that can have a better impact over my esteemed viewers from more than 200 countries.
I used to analyze my earlier and past postings.
ABOUT A FEW VIEWERS

I gauge this from the responses I receive from my viewers and I am really proud that there are quite a few viewers who look for four a.m for the scheduled post appear on the screen! Out of the several, some are very vocal and express on a daily basis their views on the Blog. I thought it fit and interesting to others and hence consolidate and post as Sunday stories under different heads as below:
Viewer’s View of ENVIUS THOUGHTS (in several parts- of Shri OKR Sivanganam)
Voice of the Viewer on ENVIUS THOUGHTS (in a few parts of Shri Rajeev Jha from Bhagalpur))
A journalist’s view of ENVIUS THOUGHTS (of Shri Muthu Aiyer from Hyderabad)
Uthaya’s view on ENVIUS Thoughts (of Shri PH Uthayamurthy from Bangalore)
LICsian’s View on ENvius Thoughts (of Shri T Chandra Sekara Reddy from Kadapa)
Ramamurthi on Envius Thoughts (of Shri Ramamurthi from Bangalore)
Jagan on Envius Thoughts (of Shri Jagannathan from Chennai)
Prasad on Envius Thoughts (of Shri KVVS Prasad from Vishakapatnam)
“Consolidated comments of several viewers” (other than those referred to above) in two parts.

One Mrs. Elezabeth K Mona from Hyderabad appreciates every post and in particular posts on Special Days. She says “We gain a lot of knowledge in an interesting way by reading your posts. Thanks for sharing”.

While the responses are very positive and encouraging, inspiring and motivating, I have a feeling that further improvement is very much called for lest interest may gradually wane and fall into oblivion!

SOOTHING POSTS

Some of my posts do give me a sense of satisfaction as those particular posts appear to give a specific category of viewers some solace and a greater sense of anticipation of something good.
Some time ago, I wrote a PRAYER series out of which “A CANCER PATIENT’S PRAYER” is a regular lead by many and it occupies the TOP position of VIEWS TOPICWISE.
Yes total number of Views as of now is 16731 out 0r 89000. Almost 20%.
Second highest is again related to my post on CANCER- NATIONAL CANCER SURVIVORS’ DAY (USA) which has a view score of 8812 as of now- more than 10% of the total view.
There are Cancer Patients/Cancer survivors who find reading this post giving solace and comfort. I also pray for their wellbeing. With a heavy-very heavy-heart, I recollect my beloved wife suffering with cancer for a few moths and succumbing to the deadly decease on that fateful day 20th August 2014.
TOP THREE VIEWING COUNTRIES
Country- wise top three in terms of overall views are as below as of now:
India 23085
Pakistan 9607
United States 8790
What an amazing figures!

Great fund of statistics provided by WORDPRESS is indeed remarkable.

SUMMER IN CHENNAI
Summer in Chennai is awful-not less than 40 degrees in the last quite a few days. Practically confined to home- what else to expect from a person in his 76+ !!!!!!! Early morning walk, morning temple visit, post sunset a twenty minute outing to enjoy fresh air- away from the electric fan and the AC!

CELEBRATING THYAGARAJA

“Entharo mahanubhaavulu andhariki vandhanamu”
1767-2017.

One of the greatest Saint Poets Tamilnadu has seen is Thyagabrahmam- a great devotee of Lord Rama on whom the poet has written and sung hundreds and hundreds of keerthanas in Telugu is 250 years now.
He was serving Rama and spent all his time in Ramasmarana having been born in 1767. He was born in Tiruvarur and spent his time on the banks of THIRUVAIYARU- in Thanjavur district.
I happily recollect the appreciation my Tamil translation of Thyagayya’s Telugu PANCHA RATHNA KEERTHANAS- FIVE PEARLS OF HIS OFFERINGS- first of its kind in Tamil- from our former President Dr. Abdul Kalam who visited the house of the musicians who brought out the CD of Tamil keerthanas, asked them to sing, had dinner with them in Madurai.

Dr. Abdul Kalam with the musicians in their Madurai residence.

A detailed story you can read from the archives of ENVIUS THOUGHTS here in https://nvsr.wordpress.com under the caption “A GREAT DAY WITH DR. ABDUL KALAM”. I am glad that the Tamil version is being rendered in many places including US. It is all the will and gift of Goddess of LEARNING SARASWATHI.
During the 4 day Thyagabramma festival being conducted on the banks of the CAUVERY river in Thiruvaiyaru a holy and sacred village near Thanjavur in Tamilnadu( where I started my career as A MATHEMATICS-ENGLISH teacher in the year 1961-62 in the centenarian School ) musicians from all over the globe participate –including John Higgins of yesteryear from US.-
Thanks my dear viewers, I stop for the part 17 of the TALE.

MOTHERS’ DAY IS TODAY!

Mother primary God cannot be left in an old age home
Old and decrepit, sick and serious- to be kept in a foam
Mattress with possible comfort in the bedroom of our home
For all what she has done for us since birth sacrificing dome!

“Maathru dhevo bava” Vedic dictum for the Hindus all
Among the four-mother, father, teacher and God- she stands tall
The whole world of course keeps Mother atop and reveres her
And never to forget her greatness -God incarnation sure!

Today is the WORLD MOTHERS’ DAY- a holy and sacred day
Young or old, poor or rich, literate or otherwise let the day
Start with respect and seeking blessings from her in person
From home or heaven wherever she is and not from old age home!

RABINDRANATH TAGORE DAY IS TODAY- 7th May

 

 

OUR MOTHERLAND

India that is my Bharath is my sacred and holy Motherland. One of the oldest countries on earth- its age cannot be assessed-it is timeless, beyond times, its culture, civilization, languages, principles, practices, philosophy and so on.
What is deemed to be modern Science or Mathematics, Economics or Commerce, Engineering or Medicine they were all in the day to day use of ancient India!
The great languages and precious literature were part of this land! West looking for this East for peace and composure, thoughts-religious and spiritual is as ancient as our Motherland.

HISTORY MAKERS OF INDIA

Let us have a glance at the ancient personalities who made our country great through their contribution from the days of yore in various fields of human  activities and welfare:

Sushruta (600 BCE)
Born to sage Vishwamitra, Sushruta is the father of surgery. 2600 years ago, he and health scientists of his time conducted complicated surgeries like cesareans, cataract, artificial limbs, Rhinoplasty (restoration of a damaged nose), 12 types of fractures, 6 types of dislocations, urinary stones and even plastic surgery and brain surgery. Usage of anesthesia was well known in ancient India. Author of the book “Sushruta Samhita”, in which he describes over 300 surgical procedures and 125 surgical instruments, including scalpels, lancets, needles, catheters and rectal speculums; mostly designed from the jaws of animals and birds. He has also described a number of stitching methods; the use of horse’s hair as thread and fibers of bark.

BharadwajaAlso known as Bharadwaj Gotra, a descendant of rishi Angira (vedic sage who wrote most of the Atharva Veda). Lord Rama along with Sita and Lakshmana (in the epic Ramayana) met many rishis and sages including Bharadwaja.

Acharya Bharadwaja authored the ” Yantra Sarvasva ” which includes astonishing and outstanding discoveries in aviation science, space science and flying machines. He has described three categories of flying machines: (1) One that flies on earth from one place to another. (2) One that travels from one planet to another. (3) And one that travels from one universe to another.
Kashyap
An ancient rishi, the Saptarishi. He was the father of the Devas, Asuras, and all humankind. He was the son of Marichi and Aditi.
Patanjali (200 BCE)
Called the father of Yoga. The Science of Yoga is one of several unique contributions of India to the world. It seeks to discover and realize the ultimate Reality through yogic practices. Acharya Patanjali , the founder, hailed from the district of Gonda (Ganara) in Uttar Pradesh . He prescribed the control of prana (life breath) as the means to control the body, mind and soul. This subsequently rewards one with good health and inner happiness.
Acharya Patanjali ‘s 84 yogic postures effectively enhance the efficiency of the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive and endocrine systems and many other organs of the body. Yoga has eight limbs where Acharya Patanjali shows the attainment of the ultimate bliss of God in samadhi through the disciplines of: yam, niyam, asan, pranayam, pratyahar, dhyan and dharna.
Kanad (600 BCE)Founder of Atomic Theory. As the founder of “Vaisheshik Darshan” – one of six principal philosophies of India – Acharya Kanad was a genius in philosophy. He is believed to have been born in Prabhas Kshetra near Dwarika in Gujarat. He was the pioneer expounder of realism, law of causation and the atomic theory. He has classified all the objects of creation into nine elements, namely: earth, water, light, wind, ether, time, space, mind and soul. He says, “Every object of creation is made of atoms which in turn connect with each other to form molecules.” His statement ushered in the Atomic Theory for the first time ever in the world, nearly 2,500 years before John Dalton . Kanad has also described the dimension and motion of atoms and their chemical reactions with each other. The eminent historian, T.N. Colebrook , has said, “Compared to the scientists of Europe, Kanad and other Indian scientists were the global masters of this field.”
Kapila (3000 BCE)
Called the Father of Cosmology. Acharya Kapil was born in 3000 BCE to the illustrious sage Kardam and Devhuti. He also gifted the world with the Sankhya School of Thought. His pioneering work threw light on the nature and principles of the ultimate Soul (Purusha), primal matter (Prakruti) and creation. His concept of transformation of energy and profound commentaries on atma, non-atma and the subtle elements of the cosmos places him in an elite class of master achievers – incomparable to the discoveries of other cosmologists. On his assertion that Prakruti, with the inspiration of Purusha, is the mother of cosmic creation and all energies.
Bhaskaracharya He calculated the time taken by the earth to orbit the sun hundreds of years before the astronomer Smart; Time taken by earth to orbit the sun: (5th century) 365.258756484 days. Born in the obscure village of Vijjadit (Jalgaon) in Maharastra, Bhaskaracharya’s mathematical works called “Lilavati” and “Bijaganita” are considered to be unparalleled. In his treatise “Siddhant Shiromani” he writes on planetary positions, eclipses, cosmography, mathematical techniques and astronomical equipment. In the “Surya Siddhant” he makes a note on the force of gravity: “Objects fall on earth due to a force of attraction by the earth. Therefore, the earth, planets, constellations, moon, and sun are held in orbit due to this attraction.” Bhaskaracharya was the first to discover gravity, 500 years before Sir Isaac Newton.

Chanakya (370–283 BCE)
Chanakya or Vishnu Gupta or Kautilya (his gotra) was a teacher to the first Maurya Emperor Chandragupta – the first emperor in the archaeologically recorded history to rule the complete Indian Subcontinent.
He authored the ancient Indian political treatise called Arthasastra. Chanakya is considered as the pioneer of the field of economics and political science and his work is thought of as an important precursor to Classical Economics. Chanakya’s works predate Machiavelli’s by about 1,800 years. Chanakya was a teacher in Takshashila, an ancient centre of learning.
Vatsyayana
A Hindu philosopher who lived during the reign of the Gupta Empire (4th – 6th century AD), is believed to be the author of the Kama Sutra. In the second chapter , Vatsyayana describes 64 kama-kalas, or ways to make love. These are not 64 positions, but the categories of different modes of lovemaking, namely ’embracing, kissing, scratching, biting, the positions, moaning, the woman playing the man’s part, and oral sex.’ As each of these modes of sex is supposed to have eight different particular manifestations, there are thus sixty-four ways in which a man or woman could be said to be having sex in its broadest sense. But kama-kalas are not just tools for successful love making, they also lie at the heart of what constitutes an educated man.

Valmiki
The famous poet and the author of the epic Ramayana.

Panini (600 BCE)Panini is known for his Sanskrit grammar, particularly for his formulation of the 3,959 rules of Sanskrit syntax and grammar known as Ashtadhyayi (“eight chapters”), the foundational text of the grammatical branch of the Vedanga, the auxiliary scholarly disciplines of Vedic religion.
Nagarjuna (100 CE)Born in the village of Baluka in Madhya Pradesh, his dedicated research produced maiden discoveries and inventions in the faculties of chemistry and metallurgy, like “Ras Ratnakar”, “Rashrudaya” and “Rasendramangal”. As the author of medical books like “Arogyamanjari” and “Yogasar,” he also made significant contributions to the field of curative medicine. He was appointed as Chancellor of the famous University of Nalanda.

Vashishtha
One of the Saptarishis. He was the Maanasa-putra (“a brain child”) of Brahma. He possessed the divine cow known as Kamadhenu and the Kamadhenu’s child Nandini. Vashishtha is the author of some parts in the Rigveda.

Jaimini
An ancient rishi, a great philosopher of the Mimansa school. He was the son of wandering rishi Parashara, and a disciple of Veda Vyasa.

Varahamihira (499-587 CE)Varahamihir’s book “panch siddhant”, noted that the moon and planets are lustrous not because of their own light but due to sunlight. In the “Bruhad Samhita” and “Bruhad Jatak”, he has revealed his discoveries in the domains of geography, constellation, science, botany and animal science. In his treatise on botanical science, Varahamihir presents cures for various diseases afflicting plants and trees.
Some of the other sages were:
Astika (the son of Manasa and Jaratkaru, the Vyasa of the twenty-seventh Dwapara) Atri (A legendary scholar and a son of Brahma – a Sapta Rishi)
Bhrigu (One of the Saptarishis and one of the Prajapatis (and Maanasa Putra – a brain child) that Brahma created as facilitators of creation)
Kraustuki (Markandeya’s disciple)
Kripacharya (an important character in the Mahabharata; one of the Chiranjivin (the “immortals”).
Marichi (The son of Brahma and also one of the Saptarishis)
Narada (A divine sage (son of Brahma) in the Vaishnava tradition)
Paráshara (A Rigvedic Maharishi and author of many ancient Indian texts. He was the grandson of Vasishtha and the author of some verses in the Rigveda)
Prahlada (amahajana – that is, a “great devotee”, in the puranic Vaishnava traditions).
Pulatsya (One of the ten Prajapatis – sons of Brahma, and one of the Saptarishis. He was the spiritual vibration through the power of which some texts of the Puranas were written)
Shukra (son of Bhrigu)
Vaishampayana (the original teacher of the Black Yajur-Veda)
Yajnavalkya (A legendary ancient sage, a pupil of Vaishampayana)
There are several notable female rishikas who contributed to the composition of the Vedic scriptures. The Rig Veda mentions Romasha, Lopamudra, Apala, Kadru, Visvavara, Ghosha, Juhu, Vagambhrini, Paulomi, Yami, Indrani, Savitri, and Devajami. The Sama Veda adds Nodha, Akrishtabhasha, Sikatanivavari and Gaupayana.
India’s other contributions to the world:
India’s greatest gift to Humanity – Mathematical innovations include ZERO; use of DECIMAL NUMBERS and DICE.
Budhayana explained in the 6th century, the concept of what is known as the Pythagorean Theorem, long before the European mathematicians.
Algebra, trigonometry and calculus came from India; Quadratic equations were by Sridharacharya in the 11th century; The largest numbers the Greeks and the Romans used were (10 to the power of 6) whereas Hindus used numbers as big as (10 to the power of 53) with specific names as early as 5000 BC during the Vedic period. Even today, the largest used number is Tera 1012 (10 to the power of 12).
By 1,500 BC, Indians used figures like square, circle, rectangle, angles, triangle, fractions, algebraic formulae and astronomy and metaphysics.
The art of Navigation was born in the river Sindh 6000 years ago. The very word Navigation is derived from the Sanskrit word NAVGATIH. The word navy is also derived from Sanskrit ‘Nou’.
The earliest reservoir and dam for irrigation was built in Saurashtra. According to Saka King Rudradaman I of 150 BC a beautiful lake called ‘Sudarshana’ was constructed on the hills of Raivataka during Chandragupta Maurya’s time.
Originated in India – Pharmacology, brain surgery, medicine, artificial colors and glazes, metallurgy, re-crystallization, chemistry, textile production, hydraulic engineering, water powered devices, etc.

NOBEL LAUREATES

There are several success stories like Rabindranath Tagore (1913 Nobel Prize in Literature), CV Raman (1930 Nobel prize for Raman effect), JC Bose’s discovery of microwaves by 1895 and Prof. Jagdeesh Bose (USA based IEEE has proved what has been a century-old suspicion in the world scientific community that the pioneer of Wireless communication was not Marconi).

BARD OF BENGAL
In such a back ground of Indian history, it is not surprising that another great personality was bestowed to the Bharath by Bengal –RABINDRANATH TAGORE-whose 156th birth day is today. Here is my humble poetic tribute to him:

“Bard of Bengal was born today years hundred and fifty five ago
Brought fame to India that is Bharath winning Nobel prize sans ego
Founder of Shanthi Nikethan and  spread Upanishadic values
Of education-  reformer and Bahma samajist of value!

A poet, writer, painter of excellence-Gandhiji’s trusted friend
For the world,  VOICE OF INDIA’S SPIRITUAL HERITAGE he was
Through his nobility of thoughts and writings set a  valuable trend
Won the Nobel prize for his song celestial GITANJALI-wealth a mass!”

Tagore was honored with the Nobel Prize for his immortal GEETHANJALI-Song offerings- originally written by him in Bengali and later translated by himself into English. …
The Nobel Prize in Literature 1913 was awarded to Rabindranath Tagore “because of his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, by which, with consummate skill he gave this work to the world.”

In his “SONG Offerings” , Tagore finds the way out to unite the soul with divinity  uses modernized images  from the great classical Indian love poetry to symbolize his yearning to merge with the Supreme.Therefore, the mud stained traveler, the parched summer earth, the bride awaiting the return of her lord, the first monsoon shower, the flowers,  the rivers and  the conch are images which gain a mystical depth in these poems.
On this holy day of Rabindranath Tagore’s 156th  birth anniversary ENVIUS THOUGHTS pays its homage to him in the shape of this Sunday Story.

 

(For this SUNDAY STORY, I have taken refuge extensively in GOOGLE GURU.)

All the religions in the world are great serving humanity
To make them live as noble citizens in peace and harmony
Motherland India that is Bharath with great Hinduism
The oldest has great message for the whole world with humanism.

Dwaitha, Adwaitha, Visishtadwaitha three most important
Branches
Hinduism have and all aimed at the same goal in a path different
Ramanuja the great seer who spread the gospel of Vaishnavism
Is thousand today and we seek His blessings entire humanity.

Though orthodox in His own way the Seer a social reformer
Who broke the superstitious chain in the hands of the ignorant
By standing atop the tower gave the significance of secret Messages to the commoners and thus proved a real seer great!

Years come and years go but the world goes on for ever
Joy and happiness follow with every new year-
More to the concerned- yet all it is nice and great
The Tamils in all parts of the globe celebrate a treat!

“HEVILAMBI” name of the year in Tamil heralds
A new year that will bring happiness and joy to all
General prediction is optimistic on all fronts
People of the Tamil land to prosper and stand tall!

Multi blessed day is this holy and sacred day-
GOOD FRIDAY-preceding Easter- crucifixion day
For Jesus Christ to raise up and Ascension on Sunday
Vishu for Keralites and thus indeed a great day.

Human beings we are, to make honest attempts
All in our lives adopting noble thoughts words and deeds
To promote peace and harmony among all in the world
True to the dictum “LOVE ALL SERVE ALL, HELP EVER HURT NEVER!”

All the religions of the world are great preaching peace and friendship
Joy and harmony promoting prosperity in great kinship.
Alas, men in their arrogance and shortsightedness do misuse
Nobility and wisdom to stop this menace, make love profuse.

The oldest religion of our Holy and sacred Motherland
Has gifted ideals great, personalities noble in heartland
Gods, emperors-deemed divine incarnations many born and spread
Virtues and values for all young and old, small and big to tread!

Lord Rama hailed by authors of Ramayana-the epic great
Was born on this day and indeed a great day to observe neat
Dedicating ourselves to the path and guidance provided
To make the society and the world a heaven created!
