THREE GREATS IN A DAY!

GANDHI + SHASTRI + KAMARAJ DAY =October 2nd!

MAHATMA 150! – Envius Thoughts

As I normally used to say, besides my parents in their heavenly abode, I have three more mentors from HEAVEN who hold my hands and accompany me wherever and whenever I go out and bring me back home safely. They are great Poet Saint Thiruvalluvar, Mahakavi Barathiyar greatest national patriotic Poet from Tamilnadu and Mahatma Gandhi father of our holy Motherland-India that is Bharat.

This day is a sacred day OCTOBER SECOND, the Day Gandhiji and LalBahadur Shastri  were born and Kamarajar entered his HEAVENLY ABODE.
For Gandhiji’s birth day, here s a tribute paid to him by Barathiyar which I reproduce in Tamil along with transliteration and translation in English.

ORIGINAL IN TAMIL

வாழ்க நீ எம்மான்!
வாழ்க நீ எம்மான் , இந்த வையத்து நாட்டி லெல்லாம்
தாழ்வுற்று வறுமை மிஞ்சி விடுதலை தவறிக் கெட்டுப்
பாழ்பட்டு நின்ற தாமோர் பாரத தேசந் தன்னை
வாழ்விக்க வந்த மஹாத்மா! நீ வாழ்க; வாழ்க!
அடிமை வாழ்வ கன்றின் நாட்டார் விடுதலை யார்ந்து செல்வம்
குடிமையில் உயர்வு, கல்வி ஞானமும் கூடியோங்கிப்
புவிமிசைத் தலைமை யெய்தும் படிக்கொரு சூழ்ச்சி செய்தாய்!
முடிவிலாக் கீர்த்தி பெற்றாய் , புவிக்குளே முதன்மை யுற்றாய்!

TRANSLITERATION
VAZHGA NEE EMMAAN GANDHI!

Vaazhga nee emmaan, indha vaiyaththu naattilellaam
Thaazhvutru varumai minji vidudhalai thavarik kettup
Paazhpattu nindradhaamoar baaradha dhaesan thannai
Vaazhvikka vandha Gandhi mahaathmaa! Nee vaazhga, vaazhga!
Adimai vaazhvaganrin naattaar viduthalai yaarndhu selvam
Kudimaiyi luyarvu, kalvi njaanamum koodi yoangip
Padimisaith thalaimai yeydhum padikkoru soozhchchi seydhaay!
Mudivilaak keerthi petraay; puvikkuLae mudhanmai yutraay!

Translation in English.

Long may you live, Gandhi Mahatma,
You who have brought new life to Bharat,
The land which of all lands on earth
Lay most degraded, poverty-stricken,
Ruined, forsaken, of freedom bereft.

Endless glory, yea, a crown
Universal you have gained
Devising a simple plan whereby
Our people can shake off slavery.
Breathe free, grow rich and learned and wise,
And show to all the world the way
Of true, enlightened citizenship.

This day is the birth  anniversary of a great Gandhian, a simple but effective Prime Minister he was Lalbahadhur Shastri.

He was the second Prime Minister of Independent India and he was greatly impressed by Mahatma Gandhi. He gave the slogan of “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan” which means “Hail the soldier, Hail the farmer”- most important segment of the Indian society.

Lal Bahadur Shastri dedicated himself for more than 30 years to the country and he came to be known as a man of great integrity and competence. He was a man of great inner strength, humble and tolerant. He understood people’s language and was a man of vision towards the country’s progress.

Here is a tribute to one of the greatest citizens from Tamilnadu-a very efficient Chief Minister of Tamilnadu whose death anniversary
 is observed today. Tribute is in Tamil and its English version.

கர்மயோகி ஆனவர்

காமராஜர் என்பவர் கர்மயோகி ஆனவர்
கதராடை அணிந்தவர் கடமையில் தவறாதவர்

தமிழகத்தில் பிறந்தவர் தியாகம் செய்து உயர்ந்தவர்
அகில இந்திய அளவிலே தலைவராக இருந்தவர்

தமிழகத்தின் முதல்வராய் தலை நிமிர்ந்து நின்றவர்
தமிழகத்தின் பெருமையைத் தரணி அறியச் செய்தவர்.

எளிமையான வாழ்வதை என்றும் ஏற்று வாழ்ந்தவர்
ஏழை எளிய மக்களின் துயர்தனைத் துடைத்தவர்.

காமராஜர் என்பவர் கல்விக் கண்ணைத் திறந்தவர்
மதிய உணவுத் திட்டத்தை மக்களுக்குத் தந்தவர்.

தன் நலம் துறந்தவர் தனியராக வாழ்ந்தவர்
அண்ணல் காந்தி அடிகளின் அறவழியில் சென்றவர்.

பாசமிக்க தலைவராய் பலகாலம் வாழ்ந்தவர்
பாரதத்தின் பெருமையை பார் புகழச் செய்தவர்!

Translation:

BECAME A KARMA YOGI
Kamaraj became a karmayogi
Wearing kadhar, never failed in duties!

Born in Tamilnadu became tall through his sacrifices
At the All India level a great leader he was!

As Chief Minister of Tamilnadu he stood with his head high
Glory of Tamilnadu he spread in the whole world!

Simple life he lived all throughout his days
Removed the woes of the poor and have nots!

Kamaraj opened the eyes for education for all
Provided mid-noon meals for students all!

Selfless he was a bachelor throughout
Followed the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi!

As beloved leader he lived for long
Spread the glory of India all through the globe!

So a GREAT THREE IN ONE day- auspicious day for our nation!

Why October 02nd is a 'Special Day' in India?

Lal Bahadur Shastri

Kamaraj

June 12th- Shame my Lord!

 

UN reiterates call to end child labour by 2025 - CGTN

Cruel it is my Lord! to put the young children to work
On the field and in the furnace in heat and dust can’t shirk
In the home as servants and in the firework units, shame
At an age to attend school to become great and get fame!

Cruel father spending time in gossiping and drinking
Shameless, sends wife and children to work and earn a living
Merciless human being selfish to be condemned, damned
And bring them to their senses, my God, Omnipotent-guide!

Pity is the indifferent Governments here and there
Unable to check the child labor with hands severe
Punish the healthy parents living on children’s earning
Allow the employer exploit children for meager pay!

Education, uniform free, free food for all at school
Thanks to that great Chief Minister Kamaraj!
Yet children not sent for studies but to work a shame!
Cruel child labor to go here and now, world over cool
People, Governments, social minded to work together
Register success grand, stamp out the shame altogether!

Indian Republic Seventy One
Democratic fruits enjoyed fine
Democratic rights availed in full
Democratic values laid in lull!

Rights yielded place to a free license
License to indulge in deeds nonsense
Nonsense leading to atrocities
Beyond all due sensitivities!

Achievements galore, pride on one hand
Atrocities galore, ashamed we stand!

Corrupted mind, stained thoughts, evil deeds
Here and there, everywhere, pity indeed!

Our success and failure, good and bad
Who is responsible- sure I am!
R-day resolve- to all should be same!
“Let me mend my mind, tame my thought
With power of will, evils to be fought
Sure allow not my Motherland rot!

My holy and great Motherland gave birth to several greats
To take care of hard won freedom and its democratic values
Great Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru as one such Prime Minister
Friend of the poor Chief Minister Kamaraj great and selfless worker!

Humble worker of the Congress movement under Mahatmaji
Born on Fifteenth of July in the year Nineteen Thousand Three
In the South of my sacred homeland-India that is Bharath
Led the State and the Nation in a variety of noble ways!

The greatest Chief Minister Tamil Nadu privileged to have
The finest King Maker of India ever seen and had
His selfless service and sacrifices made him the noblest
Ever remembered for eternity- let us seek his blessings!

18th June KAKKAN DAY

Image result for kakkan

June Eighteenth is the hundred and ninth anniversary a great man
A great simple, noble unassuming leader from Tamilnadu
Late P Kakkan, Tamil Nadu’s formidable leader and Indian
Freedom fighters. Kakkan’s rich legacy and history is sadly left
Languishing from the hearts of the people.Most unfortunate.

Look at his condition.“Then Tamilnadu Chief Minister MGR
Saw a woman among the morning crowd, got out of his car,
Went up to her and inquired about her husband. Invited her
To eat and said that a car would take her home. She was former
Congress minister Kakkan’s wife. Kakkan could not pay meager rent
Faced eviction from his government accommodation. Asking for a day’s
Time, his wife approached MGR who settled all rental dues from his
Personal funds. The next day, a government order announced free
housing to Kakkan, and granted a monthly stipend of RUPEES FIVE HUNDRED!
This continued to his family even after his death. Tamil poet Kannadasan said,
“Any party man would have to praise MGR for helping a martyr like Kakkan.’”
That was the condition of a former Stae Minister and that shows simplicity.

INTERNATIONAL NELSON MANDELA DAY 18th JULY

Image result for quotes by mandela

 

World continues to be blessed by the Lord Almighty
By the birth of noble souls-men and women mighty!
All over the world to protect the humanity
By the great thoughts, words and deeds with nobility!

Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Tilak, Patel,
And host of others from India -fought for freedom
And led the people! Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama,
Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill and a host!

Forget the past.
We pledge ourselves to liberate all our people from the continuing bondage of poverty, deprivation, suffering, gender and other discrimination.
To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children
Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will.
After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
