Blog author during his Cuddapah days

MARATHON BLOG
Yes, TIME is on a marathon!! ENVIUS THOUGHTS –this post is 950th. Just like that keying in My TRYST WITH LIC 885 days ago in February 2015 in my PC-TIME in its marathon beginning has come up to this stage! With another fifty posts, total posts will be ONE THOUSAND!(Tale TWENTY)

With every passing day, we see new skies, new horizons, new rains, new wind -nature in its absolute beauty –Divine manifestation!

This Tale 19 I believe must prove to be as interesting as the last 18- at the interval of every fifty posts. This time it is 950th post on the 884th day of the Blog.

In another 50 posts by HIS grce- the grace of the Goddess of LEARNING –Goddess Saraswathy- it will be THOUSANDTH. That is TALE TWENTY!

Some interesting Posts

Some of the posts had too much of emotional attachment during this period. And they are:

24th June post                    Strange Alibis

5th July                                Painful Luxury

12th July                             Fools First

16th July                            Week of Deaths.

3rd August                         Am I Sinner?

20th August                       Life’s Light Left

 

Man has to stand on certain principles and they have got to be followed under all circumstances. I remember my beloved father who reached his heavenly abode on 5th March 1987 = at the age of 87  was very very particular about his morning and evening walks. On the evening or 4th March 12 hours before his last breathe he had his 4 kilometer evening walk and as he came down from his first floor bed room on the 5th for 5 o’clock morning walk he sat down and passed away. Point is whether it is summer or winter, cold or rain – he will have his walk with an umbrella! Here is his son who was trained by him right from his age 5 for walks, today at past 75 finds light drizzles on the morning walk time, finds an alibi in the rain drops and  comes back happily to resume his sleep at 3-00am!

I pleasantly recollect my college days in karaikudi where Alagappa College was situated five miles away from my house and all the four years I used to walk 5+5= 10 miles irrespective of the season –both up and down- barefooted! Today I see the children in my colony from which the school is situated hardly 200 meters going by the school van or dropped in bike /scooter/car/luxury car! Unfortunate result is obese boys and girls at the age of ten! If this is not PAINFUL LUXURY what else can it be!

Next one- my noble father’s voice I hear from His heavenly home as I would have heard 1000s of time when he was physically with us:“Fools and rogues must be punished-FOOLS FIRST!”. I act very many a time even at this stage of my life and I have to be punished which I regularly have! Have a look at this post to know more about my FOOLISHNESS!

 

Death is not anything new on earth. Yet a continuous three deaths- of close friends all great scholars- is something that I could not take it easily and reconcile resulting in this post.

 

For the reasons quoted in this post I do feel I am a SINNER though some of my friends who viewed this post differ with me. What about you!?

 

Again the biggest tragedy struck me in my life when that “LIFE’S LIGHT LEFT” exactly three years ago on this day the 20th August.

TALE OF VIEWS

In every Tale right till now, I elaborately review the VIEW story since I consider itself to the measuring unit for the Blog. I deem it to be the approval for my posts. In that way August First was a red letter day on the life of ENVIUS THOUGHTS when the overall view score crossed ONE LAKH from 210 countries! This is how I communicated to my esteemed viewers first:

ENVIUS THOUGHTS” CROSSES 1,00,000 VIEWS

This is a neighborhood news paper Anna Nagar Times Coverage of ENVIUS THOUGHTS crossing ONE LAKH MARK.

 

 

Following this, I had basketful of congratulatory messages through phone calls, g mails and face book! What greater Nobel award is needed for a blogger other than such encomiums?

 

On the day the news came in the paper, day’s views was 295 –the highest for a day since the Blog was launched! The earlier highest was 257 last August!

As of now overall views have crossed 1,02,000!

 

CPC MEETS

A very interesting observation by a great scientist reads: “Art and literature of the highest order cannot flourish in a world which is increasingly becoming mechanical and society a rocket!”.

How true it has been proved! There are no eyes to enjoy the magnificent mountains and veritable valleys, beautiful night sky and ever bright stars, fantastic fauna and fanciful flora, dancing daffodils and revealing roses! There are no ears to listen to the melodies of nature, ennobling music and roaring sound of the waves along the coast of Bay of Bengal or Atlantic Ocean! No time to enjoy the reverberating flow of Ganges waters in the Himalayas and stirring verses from the Vedas and Upanishads, Quoran and Bible!

Fast moving vehicles, fast food, fast life- every thing fast- no time to stand and stare!

Notwithstanding the above scenario, there are silver lining in the literary world where we see the poetry lovers play viewers and prose gluttons  do go in search of journals and nooks, Meets and Seminars.

Here is one lovely organization called CHENNAI POETS CIRCLE where the members meet every month to present poems, analyze and discuss, organize annual Seminars where anthology is released, poems and papers on poetry are presented.

In the last CPC Meet held on 22nd July, I had the pleasure of participation along with Ms. S. Nivetha, youngest poet to present her poem.

Here is news coverage in the neighborhood newspaper ANNA NAGAR TIMES dated July 30th-August 5th 2017:

“17 year old S. nivetha, resident of 12/1045, Jeevan bima Nagar, Anna Nagar Western Extension presented her poem –‘WINGS OF FRIENDS’- at the Chennai Poets’ Circle in the Meet held on 22nd July 2017, in Defenc 2
e Officers’ Colony Ekkattuththangal.

She was the youngest poet at the Meet.

Her grandfather N V Subbaraman also presented his poem ‘Freedom He Resented’ at the Meet.

Nivetha is pursuing her graduate course in Ethiraj College, Chennai.” .

 

ADDITIONAL ADMIRER

I very strongly believe that I draw strength from the immense Grace of the Lord Almighty and inspiration from my esteemed viewers and their responses. With 134 followers from more than 210 countries, very satisfying progress of the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is the overall view score is more than ONE LAKH. By the grace of Goddess of Learning and the enthusiasm of the viewers, today’s post is 950th on the 884th day of the Blog!

Well, one of my new admiring viewer is Shri Vasudevan my erstwhile colleague in the Life Insurance Corporation of India and presently with his daughter in Toronto, Canada. He daily views the post and makes his comments regularly and a compendium of the same for the reading of my esteemed viewers was posted as Sunday story which was received well.

POSTS AND PICTURES
I always believe that simple words and sentences may in the course of time lead to boredom and dry. Hence I make ita point to post one or two images or pictures appropriate for the topic and content. Photos taken by my family members re put to use. and take refuge in GOOGLE GURU many a time. I am glad to give below comment that was received from one of the regular readers from Manipal: I am impressed with the amazing images/pictures your Blog posts carry day by day. My hearty congratulations. Please continue.”

I feel this much is sufficient for this Sunday Story-950th Post.
We shall meet as usual daily.

Aug 19 -World Photography day

 

World Photography Day is today- a great day indeed
What one cannot see the actual –sees as good in need
Thanks to the camera invented, improved long ago
In eighteen thirtees- a lovely invention in the world!

People express and communicate sans words tht is great
Photographers of all shades share with the internet-treat
‘Selfie’ to day so small and cute in the grasp of fingers
A lovely machine that captures nice and beautiful-lingers!

Child born in Canada seen in India in minutes
The grand parents enjoy reclining in their easy chairs
Great indeed is the art and science of photography
Let us remember the greats and enjoy the FINE ART freely!

 

Selfie style!

 

August 19-World Humanitarian Day

 

August nineteenth –tomorrow is a great day-quite significant
“World Humanitarian Day” observed all over the globe
For all of us to think, to pen and spread, make the world with patience
To respect all beings-God’s creation with clear conscience!

Men and women are created by God the Almighty
To live and lead a life normal with kith and kin rightly;
But there are the beloved of God who work for the world
Sacrificing all in challenging situations bold!

Brazilian Sergio Vieira de Mello was one of age
Whose thinking, philosophy, dynamism and courage
Inspired all and timeless legacy for all to emulate.
Rightly United Nations dedicated this day to that great!

PARSI NEW YEAR DAY IS TODAY

Unity in diversity- that is my Motherland
India that is Bharath-ancient and holy land
Languages, traditions, culture, climate all different
To others, people as such are never indifferent!

Today PARSI NEW YEAR- linked to Zorastrianism
Yearly renewal of everything in the Universe!
Maharashtra nd Gujarath- main States to observe sure
Special decorations in and out of the houses-pure!

After breakfast all together visit the Fire Temple
During the visit think of good and bad in the year
Resolve to do only good in the year new by HIS grace
Start the happy New Year with thoughts, words and deeds good to face!

.August 12-International Youth Day.

 

Said great Swamy Vivekananda – modern Saint
“If I can get some young men of heart and energy,
I shall revolutionize the whole country.”
That indeed is the youth power and energy!

August twelfth today is “International Youth Day”
To focus on the power of youth and their energy
For the world to progress in fields various sure
If only harnessed and guided right by the elders pure!

Not allowing the idea of India
To be a prisoner of narrow-mindedness
And communal ideology –aim of elders
Should be to harness the power of the young!

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM Part 20

Velu Nachiyar

Rani Velu Nachiyar, was a queen of Sivaganga estate in 1760-1790. She was the first queen to fight against the British colonial power in India, even long before the famous Rani of Jhansi.

In the long and arduous journey to Indian Freedom
Many places and persons from this holy Indian soil
Played  role very important worthy of remembrance-their toil
For all the times to come -none can erase their fame or spoil!

In the far south of Tamilnadu valiant people
From places deep stood firm fought the British tooth and nail
One such was the valiant lady VELU NACHIYAR -queen
Of Sivaganga, first to fight before Jansi Rani-keen!

Independance day seventy second shortly arrives
On this happy and holy occasion- the patriotic
Citizens of our Motherland India that is Bharath
Offer homage to Velu Nachiyar and her clan as wealth!

August 09-International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples!

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!
