One of the greatest creations of the Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore is GITANJALI.
With a view to giving the same to the esteemed viewers of ENVIUS THOUGHTS a small beginning is made today by posting the first poem in English, its translation for the benefit of Tamil knowing all over the world and a brief meaning of the celestial song in Tamil and English. Envius Thoughts looks forward for the support by viewing and responding. Thanks.
STILL THERE IS ROOM TO FILL!
Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure.
This frail vessel thou emptiest again and again and fillest it ever with fresh life.
This little flute of a reed thou hast carried over hills and dales and hast breathed through it melodies eternally new.
At the immortal touch of thy hands my little heart loses its limits in joy and gives birth to utterance ineffable.
Thy infinite gifts come to me only on these very small hands of mine. Ages pass and still thou pourest and still there is room to fill.
கீதாஞ்சலியில் முதல் பாடல்
நிறப்பிட இருக்கும் இன்னும் இடம்!
அந்தமற்றவன் ஆக்கியே என்னை
அதிலோர் இன்பம் அடைந்தாய் நீ!
இந்தஉடலெனும் குடத்தை இனிதாய்
வந்த வளமான வாழ்க்கை அது
மீண்டும் வந்த வாழ்க்கை
தந்த அந்த வாழ்விலே
ரசித்தேன்; சுவைத்தேன் முழுவதுமே!
காலம் காலம் கேட்டிடும்
அழகாய்ப் பட்டது என் மேலே!
இதயம் மலர்ந்தது மகிழ்ச்சியினால்!
பிறக்க வைக்கும் உன் பரிசம்;
அழிக்க இயலா எண்ணத்தால்!
அளக்கமுடியா உன்பரிசில் அமுதாய்
கொட்டுது என் கைகளிலே!
மறக்க முடியா காலங்கள்
மறைந்தே போகும் விரைவினிலே
நிறப்பிட இருக்கும் இன்னும் இடம்
நிறைந்தே இருக்கும் எந்நாளும்!
Brief interpretation in Tamil.meaning
இந்த உலகமும், உலகத்தில் மனித வாழ்க்கையும் இறைவன் அளித்த வரம். மனித வாழ்வு ஒரு தொடர்கதை. பிறப்பும் இறப்பும் இயற்கையின் நியதி. இறைவன் அளித்த இவ்வாழ்வை நல்லமுறையில் அமைத்துக் கொள்வதும், நடத்திக் கொள்வதும், அனுபவிப்பதும், அவன் அருளால் நமக்குக் கிடைப்பன. நல்லமுறையில் வாழ முயன்று அவன் ஆசியினால் உலகம் பயனுற வாழ்ந்திடுவோம். இயற்கையையும், இயற்கை படைத்த இவ்வுலகினையும், உலக வாழ்க்கையினையும் நல்ல முறையில், தூய வழியில் அனுபவிப்போம்

Considered a heroine of France and canonized !
Joan had the visions to support Charles Seven
Recover France from English domination late in
The Hundred Years’ War!. The uncrowned King sent Joan
To the Siege_of_Orléansas part of a relief mission!
Several swift victories led to Charles Seven’s
Coronation at a long-awaited event!
Boosted French morale and French victory ensued.
There are Joans of Arc all over the world followed!.

The day, Nelson Mandela was imprisoned a cruel day indeed is today
South African Mahathma Gandhi-so considered by the world to pay
Our respects and shower honors to the great and noble soul who worked
For the lowly, poor and downtrodden and for social justice- sacrificed!
A call by the United Nations Organization to the world
To serve the humanity! Call to prove the idea that one be bold
And each individual has the power to transform the world-impact
He has the ability to make on the people and society-a fact!
Call: Nelson Mandela fought for years sixty seven pretty long
Serve the society minutes sixty seven a day that will change strong
And bring together people around the world to fight poverty and
Promote peace, harmony and cultural diversity abound!
No wonder suffered for his boldness to go violent
Imprisoned several times- and on this day twenty fifth
October fifty five years ago- for treason-filth
And sabotage for years five but made for ‘life’ strict!
What a funny world is this in which we live and spend all our times
Unique in ways many but peculiarities several!
Man to live in peace and harmony to develop qualities nice
Sure neither fear nor anger can be delicious spice!
Man does wrongs –big and small, cheap and costly all through the life
Ever under constant fear that when exposed loses name
Fear manifests through hatred and anger losing much earned fame
Very difficult to come out of both while young and to tame!
‘Worst thing to fear is fear’-easily said than done
When one does right thing in right fashion that will be well done
There is nothing to fear- no need for anger to set in
May God help us to be normal sans fear and anger fine!
The Lord Almighty- great creator of the Universe
Provided us with what all we need out of NATURE –HIS GRACE
Air, Light, Gas, water, heat and all that give health and happiness
To make the world a heaven to live in peace and poise!
OZONE prevents the ultraviolet radiation
From reaching the ground, creating normal condition
For the life on the planet; protects us from the sun rays
And forms suitable light and warmth conditions of the world!
Depletion of the layer increases radiation
Causing skin cancer, cataract, and weakens immune system
Making us suffer the infectious diseases!
Today is WORLD OZONE DAY- let us think and protect Ozone!
UN LOGO FOR THE DAY.
In the great creation of the Lord Almighty
Are the people all over the world quite mighty!
Spread over and spreading over each and all parts
Making their living useful to them and others smart!
Indigenous people moved and settled far off
Totally identifying with locals and serving
With all their best for mutual benefits giving
And taking culture of theirs to the land anew!
“International Day of the World’s Indigenous
Peoples” is today – to recognize the achievements
And contributions they make to improve world issues
Such as environmental protection-great salutes!
Great Creator God in His immense compassion created the Universe
The whole Universe to enjoy peace and harmony, freedom-not perverse.
Misfortune, men and nations in greed resort to war and violence alas
Leading to loss of several lives at a great cost –arrogance first and last!
My Homeland India that is Bharath by culture a peace loving nation
Driven to wars by neighbors avaricious of progress we make with passion
Strong in will and wit, man power and materials lot at our command
Show mettle in the battle field and justice triumphs on our demand!
Twenty sixth day of July ninety nine great Kargil war was won in great style
Today we remember those hundreds of valiant men who fought all the while
And sacrificed their lives fiercely fighting against odds so heavy
Truth and fairness sure triumphs and the guilty punished proved in merry!
