December tenth-” Human Rights Day” is today a very significant day
In a way it is a pity that we have to think and talk about this day.
God in HIS immense compassion has created all the living beings
With all freedom and rights to lead a life of peace, and plenty; harmonious.

What has happened to the God provided rights how and when we lost- question??
By misuse and disuse to the selfish needs, we lost necessitating
Intervention at international level, Oh,my God!-a pity.
Human Rights Day observed every year on tenth December, is the
Anniversary of the day that the United Nations General
Assembly adopted, in nineteen forty eight, the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights. this year marks seventieth anniversary.

TOOTHLESS PERSON!

WITH    Photo:Ramnath

 

WITHOUT! Photo:Swetha

In the creation of a human being God-the Almighty, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient God has chosen every part of the body head to toe very carefully and seriously, majestically and meticulously!.

Of the various parts of the body one’s mouth and the teeth within seems to be VERY IMPORTANT AND SIGNIFICANT.

A person is born, brought up, grows up, child to an old one- living life from womb to tomb! Rich or poor, man or woman, girl or boy, read or unread, young or old, employed or unemployed, handsome or aweful, tall or short, fat or lean,  cannot afford to live and sustain without taking food regularly- thrice or sure twice a day! Mouth, tongue, palate, teeth and digestive system as a whole have to play their respective roles responsibly lest……………….!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????.

Literally the subject of this Sunday Story in Envius Thoughts- “TOOTHLESS PERSON”- is a person without  tooth! God has given teeth- strong thirty two in number for one’s optimum use and welfare. It takes a year for a child to get teeth and the day the first tooth is seen it would appear to be a great day for the family members! Teeth grow and grow and begin to fall due to reasons several till one loses all his teeth at his old age! Old age sets in at 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 or in between! A very interesting thing when no other part of the party cannot fall-teeth and teeth alone fall! Of course nails stand at different footing!

Figuratively toothless person connotes a different meaning- “ weak, having no capacity of enforcing something”.

Etymologycally]

From Middle English toþeles, from Old English tōþlēas; equivalent to tooth +‎ -less.

With Adjective

toothless (comparative more toothless, superlative most toothless) (1)

  1. Having no teeth.
  2. a toothless old man

Synonym- ‘edentulous’

 

Here is a question: What is one word for a TOOTHLESS PERSON”?

An answer:

Your question has put me in a state of ambiguity and hence, I’ll try to frame my answer accordingly.

Situation 1:

The word, ‘toothless’ can have a general meaning i.e. a person who’s without teeth. For this, ‘Edentulate’ is the perfect synonym for the above reference.

Situation 2:

This particular word, ‘toothless’ refers to any pointless or edgeless object. As we assume often teeth to be sharp, ‘a toothless person’ means, that particular person is obtuse in nature i.e. s/he is slow to comprehend anything.

And in real, if any individual exists without teeth to showcase those when needed, it’s a cherry on top for people surrounding you, as you would see them to nibble your favourite dishes, leaving you no option but to stare at them and lick your lips in dismay !

Ok-teeth are supposed to be taken special care of right from the childhood. Whether one takes bath or not he needs to brush his teeth as soon as he gets up from the bed! With raw fingers, with toothbrush!

In the village sides with the powdered brick!!, tooth powder or toothpaste!

Youngsters wonder at a TV add. “Has your toothpaste SALT?” If not you go in for Colgate”

The writer well remembers his using what is called “கருவேலங்குச்சி” (karuvelangkuchchi) on the basis of the dictum“”ஆலும் வேலும் பல்லுக்குறுதி”  (Aalum velum pallukkurudhi”!) This small stick of 4 inches length(tender ones -thin rod like) is cut from the tree like banyan, ebony, margosa,- and biting with the teeth top one or one and a half inch to the extent of looking like the brush, brush the teeth and throw  ! I remember my father till his sixty and more will cut as he goes for evening walks make 7 small sticks -what is called “KUCHi” in Tamil to last for a week to all his three sons! Every week the process will go on!! It went on till we migrated from our native village/town.

Then came the practice of using this costly TOOTHBRUSH of different companies and toothpaste in different packs!

It is said taking too much of sweet or raw sugar spoils the TEETH!

May be the reason that I had to visit the great Gods-DENTISTS-DENTAL SURGEONS- wherever I was – in nine different stations- in the course of my official life for four decades-Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan etc!

Even after retirement I have to be visiting my good friend and Dental Surgeon- HOD in a Dental College- every now and then! The latest position is that in the last 216 hours I am without even a SINGLE TOOTH- having extracted about ten at a time giving sedation-full, half broken, three fourths broken , roots etc!!!!!! with the assurance that NEW THIRTY TWO teeth will be beautifying me at my 78th year of existence within a period of three weeks – and with all my teeth intact and my handsome face and words I will l be participating an International Poetry Festival in the third week of September in Guntur-Andhra Pradesh!

It is said in Tamil-”பல்லுப்போனால் சொல்லுப் போச்சு” (PALLUPPONAALSOLLUPPOCHCHU).”நொருங்கத்தின்றால் நூறு வயது” (NORUNGNATHTHINRAAL NOORU VAYADHU”) meaning “once teeth are lost, words are lost” and “when one eats pounding/grinding well with his teeth , he can live for hundred years”. Well for quite sometime I do  no pounding/grinding with teeth but simply swallow whatever I put in my mouth! And again though not very much felt by the audience whenever I address or render poems, pronunciation is bound to improve when new teeth are born in a month’s time! ,

 

All the above are on physical level and let us see something on a different ‘figurative level’.

We have already seen that the figurative meaning is:”Figuratively toothless person connotes a different meaning- “ weak, having no capacity of enforcing something”.

Thank God never in my life I was so-whether in personal or official life I had made a mark and none  said even remotely that “ I was weak and had no capacity to enforce something”! Having worked in a premier Public Sector organization well over four decades I was deemed to be an “ “EFFECTIVE MANAGER” as assessed by the results in different areas.

Well sufficiently you have heard your friend Blogger N V Subbaraman. We shall meet tomorrow morning with a post to mark the WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY”! Till then may GOD BE WITH YOU!’

Man the roof and crown of HIS creation has to take care of health

Habits healthy, mind kept ever calm, faith in God and so on pure
All these and more help me keep my health all right till death very sure !

One simple and easy exercise for body is walking, jogging
In the early morning- and this can be replaced by running
Walking or running regular keeps one fit and fine without doubt

Participants of all ages and abilities pledge to take
Part in some type of running activity individually
Or collectively. To continue every day sans failure!-

WORLD MALARIA DAY is today the twenty fifth April
With the year’s Theme-“READY TO BEAT MALARIA”- still
Remembering the last year’s Theme-“End malaria for Good”
With the next year’s -WE CAN DO TOGETHER”-absolute need!

Proven tools, diagnosis and treatment for its disappearance
Some of the defensive techniques to provide insecticide
Treated mosquito nets, indoor residual spraying of insecticides,
And therapies for pregnant women and children to fight Malaria!
All we need is to close the gap to fight against the menace!

Spread by malarial mosquitoes as individuals
We have to make efforts to keep the environs clean
Not allowing stagnant water here and there every where sure
awakening the peoples conscience through social media-pure!

TAGORE’S GITANJALI POEM 1

 

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.

In English
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.

In Tamil

கீதாஞ்சலியில் முதல் பாடல்
நிறப்பிட இருக்கும் இன்னும் இடம்!
அந்தமற்றவன் ஆக்கியே என்னை
அதிலோர் இன்பம் அடைந்தாய் நீ!
இந்தஉடலெனும் குடத்தை இனிதாய்
நிறப்பினாய் காலிசெய்தாய்
காலிசெய்தாய் நிறப்பினாய்!
வந்த வளமான வாழ்க்கை அது
இன்பமான வாழ்க்கை;
மீண்டும் வந்த வாழ்க்கை
தந்த அந்த வாழ்விலே
உந்தன்குழல் ஓசைதனை
ரசித்தேன்; சுவைத்தேன் முழுவதுமே!
மலையிலும் மடுவிலும்
காலம் காலம் கேட்டிடும்
பாசமுள்ள உன்மூச்சாய்!
அழிவிலாஉன்கைப் பரிசம்
அழகாய்ப் பட்டது என் மேலே!
இதயம் மலர்ந்தது மகிழ்ச்சியினால்!

பழியிலாஎன் வார்த்தைகளை
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

IN ENGLISH
