RAMADAN IS TODAY

A holy and sacred day today the end of the month long fast
Iftars hosted, rich and poor, big and small, well read and others toast
A month of fasting brings self restraint; detoxifies both body and mind
Reminds the rich of the sufferings of the poor to feed and help in kind!

Holy month of Ramzan is over with month long prayers and fast
The month of Prayer for deliverance of the self seeking HIS grace
To serve the poor and needy among their kith and kin of all trace
Soliciting Allah’s grace for MERCY, REMISSION FROM SINS,
FREEDOM FROM HELL- morn to night fasting and in prayer-hosting IFTAR
After the Sunset- feeding the poor, pleasing their Almighty-
“ALL PRAISE TO ALLAH!”- I get cleaned in my thoughts, words and deeds  pure
The great month in my Islamic Calendar let the world prosper sure!

Different cultures have different traditions during Ramadan [Amr Abdallah Dalsh/ Reuters]

STRANGE ALIBIS!

Strange indeed is the strength of alibis in the world!
To do a thing or not to do, right or wrong quite bold.
Regular early morning walker for decades six
And more. Yet one morning he feels like not- in a fix!

Slight drizzles he can easily withstand but takes as
An alibi for avoiding the morning walk alas!
A long time friend wants to visit after long pass
No mood to entertain finds an alibi-head ache!

Constant munching of snacks while at home alone satisfies
But sure not good for health beyond seventy-decides
Not to take for hours six- finds a strong alibi
In the visit of a guest and takes to his heart’s content!

WORLD BLOOD DONOR DAY 14th June

Lack of blood pure, sufficient and circulation normal
Leads to one’s inevitable end and exit- cruel
Can be of any reason-malnutrition, accident
Fortunate it is one can help the other donating!

World Blood Donor Day is today the fourteenth of June
For those in dire need for survival it is a bright moon
Group tallying, donor available indeed a great boon
May be exiting life of the person revived quite soon!

Person strong enough in body and mind, hygene and health
Loses not much by blood donation but adds his wealth
Wealth of good deed deriving the blessings of the Lord
On this great day let us resolve to help and please God!

CPC MEET !

 

CPC May monthly Meet-27/5/17 Shri Jairam Seshadri and Shri B. Jayaraman

I have on 31st January 2017 exhaustively dealt with the great activities of the CHENNAI POETS’ CIRCLE in ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com under the caption AMIDST THE AMBASSADORS OF PEACE (available in January 2017 archives of the Blog).
There are indeed many literary organizations in the country that provides sufficient food for the ever hungry lovers of literature- beyond region and religion, language and culture.
In Chennai-the great seat of education and research, culture and civilization, literary activities of all hues and shades- is blessed with CHENNAI POETS’ CIRCLE which has been in active existence for the past FOURTEEN years.
Poet Members are professionals like Chartered Accountants, Bankers, Insurance Managers, academicians and so on.
They meet regularly in turn in the members’ premises promoting literary and social wellbeing and present poems and have discussions on the theme content and form. A couple of hours a month spent on literary discussions indeed rejuvenate the minds and intellect of the participants.
In the latest Meet held on the premises of Shri Jairam Seshadri who is Chartered Accountant having returned home after several years spent in UK, USA and Canada – away from the Punya Bhoomi finds himself wanting to write more. He is in Defence Officers Colony, Chennai.
He writes poetry to vent emotion that needs venting; poems serve as a catheter for the overflow and all that brews within.
Hospitality to the participant poets displayed was indeed great and enjoyed by all.
The Meet on May 27th in one of the hottest days in the city, was no longer hot inside the Meet because of the overwhelming love and respect. Cool breeze that came out of the poems presented made the participants quite comfortable and pleasant.
The meet started with the presentation of the young Poet S. Nivetha, awaiting admission for the first year of the undergraduate studies in one of the womens’ colleges in the city. She is good at drawing and she is a cartoonist. She writes prose and verse in English. She has attended the International Multilingual Poets meet held in Vijayawada on 13th and 14th November 2017. She was the youngest poet delegate and presented her poem from the Amaravathi Poetic Prism 2016 titled FRIENDSHIP-VIRTUES AND VALUES.
She also participated in the Annual potry seminar organized by he Chennai Poets’ Circle in Chennai on 29th January 2017.and presented her poen titled SISTER,OH, SISTER which was well received by other poets
She was interviewd by the Management magazine IMPACT in its special silver jubilee issue and published under the caption “INTERVIEW WITH A YOUNG ACHIEVER”

She is being included in the INDIAN BOOK OF RECORDS FOR CHILDREN to be published soon from Zirakpur, Punjab.

.She presented her acrostic poem

SUMMER DAYS WITH FRIENDS

Summer is out waiting for us to wade
Umbrella in my hand to give a shade
Monsoon and rain dreams often at the end
Making a plan to go with all my friend(s)
E very summer day is to be hot
Roaming in Sun right my mom ever shouts.

Days pass without our moving out in Sun
Awaiting my friends to share my sweet bun
Yet they find it so difficult to walk
Sitting in a/c room in house and talk!

Watching at the window I dream of rain
Idea is to go out and get drained
Thinking of the Sun my friends rest at house
Having computer and moving the mouse.

Making strange ideas – innovation
Yet need support from my friends with passion

Finding new food stuffs to eat I make now
Reducing fat my aim I bend and bow
Intake of more rest of my summer bad
Evening comes to make my life enjoy
Never my mind should become dull and sad
Declining waste of time and improve a ploy
Sharing my views with friends give a great joy.

I presented my poem “MARVEL IS THY CREATION”.

Hills are lovely, Dales are beautiful
River is lovely, fishes are beautiful
Sea is lovely, waves are beautiful
Sky is lovely, stars are beatiful
Tree is lovely, flowers are beautiful!

Beautiful is the sky lark, lovely is the peacock
Beautiful are the birds, lovely are the animals-deers and dogs!

Beautiful nature is always beautiful
Oh! It is all Thy wonderful creation!

Even
Rain is lovely, fire is beautiful
Storm is lovely, volcano is beautiful
Thunder is melodious, lightning is pleasing!
Nature’s fury is a thing of beauty!

Bed of roses and scent around it
Blade of grass and dews upon it
Rise of moon and stars above it
Oh! It’s all the marvels of Thy creation!

Here is a child with crippled foot
There is a boy with cruel mind
Here is a man with dishonest deeds
There is a woman with a lustful eyes!

He has eyes, yet blind
She has ears, yet deaf
She has hands, yet lame
Yonder Thou art witnessing all!

Mend their ways or end their deeds
Make them honest – make them healthy
Help us live in peace and amity!

All the poems presented by the participating poets were well received and the Meet came to an end very very pleasantly.

This much is for the Sunday story this week. We shall continue to meet every day.Thanks.

Poet Jairam Seshadri has two beloved pets – nice to see, touch, well disciplined and brought up great! Have a look at the same here:

FIRST TO SCALE THE EVEREST!

General landscape shot of Everest

God’s creations all over the globe indeed is wonderful
None else can no imitation-no duplication beautiful
Human and animal beings, hills and dales, mountains and seas
All to coexist to ensure health and happiness, joy and peace!

Inevitable- exploitation of one by the other
Man has to apply and stop it within a limit- feather!
Man’s heroism, spirit of adventure, fearlessness and all
Carry him to the top of Himalayas!Make him stand tall!

Sixty four years ago this day conquest of Everest by
Tensing Norgay and Edmund Hillary surprised the world
We think of their heroic deeds, preparation for years
Let their tribe increase to repeat such great acts-bringing cheers!

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay smiling in climbing gear.

May 18 – International Museum Day

Over centuries man’s history is chequered and long
Full of incidents and happenings- quite good and bad throng
Historians’ job to chronicle and hand over to
Posterity as a treasure- sure to be looked into!

Museums indeed are the homes of history perceived
Giving data and details for the people to refer
A school for learning, knowing and absorbing-cultural
Museums all the world over serve purpose-natural!

International Museum Day is today-observed
With the theme-“Museums and contested histories:
Saying the unspeakable in museums”. Means of
Cultural exchange and enrichment of cultures to think of!

 

Chennai Government Museum.

May 17-  World Telecommunication Day

 

 

 

 

Man in his stone age and earlier knew no communication
Yet went on their lives and living sans any hypertension
Ages moved fast and humans began to learn the art of talking
Culture, practices, art of life greatly developed galloping!

Fast delivered talk and conversation, telephones, telegrams
Easily hand delivered tapals though slow, steady-phonograms
To day we enjoy the fruits of science and technology quite quick
Facilitating contacts any where in the world any time-mirth!

‘WORLD COMMUNICATION DAY’ is today to thank all those concerned
Replying mails received from the farthest corner in no time – secured
Easiest to reply the emails- no paper, no pen, no cover,
No post box- yet I have no mind- pity we see in the society!
