MENTOR OF KAMARAJ DEATH DAY

Mentor Sathyamurthi

 

Sathyamurthi with Kamaraj

India that is Bharath-my holy Motherland has given
And seen births and deaths of veterans in fields several in
Politics and philosophy, Science and Technology great
To know and follow their footsteps essential to grow and a treat!

MARCH Twenty eighth today is a sad day- death anniversary
Of a soul great-mentor of late Kamaraj-Tamilnadu easily
The best CHIEF MINISTER one can think of-SATHYA MURTHY born on
Nineteenth August Eighteen Eighty Seven and died in Nineteen Forty Three!

A great and noble son born in Thirumayam in Tamilnadu
Involved in Indian Freedom Movement very deep and devoted
Independence Activist and leading Congress politician
We salute him on his death anniversary today in veneration!

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM Part 25

The arduous journey to noble Indian freedom commenced
Decades and decades ago and the final stage was erected
With founding of a political party on this holy day
One hundred and thirty two years ago making all to pray!

Great Indian National Congress was founded in Bombay nice
At the instance of patriotic and national leaders- to size
Under the leadership of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi- to be
Revered as the Father of our Nation and freedom was born!

Great leaders led the journey till freedom and thereafter to makw
India a vibrant and largest democracy in the world
To the envy of neighbors around-yet developed wholesome
Party goes on under the young President now- to wait and watch!

LAHIRI HANGED ON 17/12/27

Statue of Rajendranath Lahiri in Gonda district jail, Uttar Pradesh

 

On the journey to freedom scores and scores of youth
Sacrificed all including studies and life-a truth
Many lost their studies and so many lost their lives
One such was Rajendranath Lahiri a revolutionary!

Hanged to death on seventeenth December twenty seven
Gonda jail in Uttar Pradesh saw him hanged,sent to heaven
For his involvement in driving out the British
Unfair but that was the end for the great and unselfish!

Our great freedom that we won on the holy midnight
Under Mahatma Ji’s leadership against British might
To be regained to fight today against the vices
Crept and make every one national and patriotic-spices!

Indira Gandhi’s Birthday 19/11/1917

Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in deep thinking .

Born to guide the destiny of my Motherland-
India that is Bharath-great and holy land
Born as a noble daughter to a noble father
On nineteenth November nineteen Seventeen!

At a critical juncture in Indian history
Stood like a rock and brought discipline among all
While many failed, she made the nation straight and tall
Grateful people remember her services – not small!

National Integration Day is today- her birth day
Need of the day as fissiparous characters
Raise their heads to make the honest people down theirs
Patriotic people should raise themselves above all!

AUGUST 22-MADRAS DAY.

“Madras nalla Madras” was a song famous from a film
In Tamil a few years ago!- “Madras good Madras”
Was the meaning; right till this day, in future too to be
One may agree or ‘dis’ but-matter of opinion can be!

“August Twenty Second- Madras Day” was celebrated
Capital city of the Indian State of Tamilnadu
Recalling formation of modern city –Fort Saint George
In sixteen thirty nine by the British- a scar in a way!

Journey to freedom was long and arduous uniting
The people by the national leaders great – guiding
Under the leadership of Gandhi- Father of our Nation
Proud Madrasi to day I am with millions- our passion!

SALUTE TO THE TRICOLOR!

 

 

Today it is seventy first Indian Independence day. For any Nation THE  most important SYMBOL is its NATIONAL FLAG. It is therefore rightly hoisted on our Republic Day by the President of India and on the Independance day by the Prime Minister at the Center and their counterparts in the State Capitals by the Governor and the Chief Minister  respectively.

In that way today’s ENVIUS Thoughts carry the greatness of our TRICOLOR  in the words of Mahakavi Bharathiyar greatest national , patriotic poet from Tamilnadu’s vision of National Flag and his scintillating  song in Tamil and its translation in English: Bharathi passed away in the year 1921-twenty six years before we got freedom!

In Tamil
தாயின் மணிக்கொடி பாரீர்!

தாயின் மணிக்கொடி பாரீர்! – அதைத்
தாழ்ந்து பணிந்து புகழ்ந்திட வாரீர்!

1.ஓங்கி வளர்ந்ததோர் கம்பம்- அதன்

2.பட்டுத் துகிலென லாமோ! – அதில்
பாய்ந்து சுழற்றும் பெரும்புயற் காற்று

3.இந்திரன் வச்சிரம் ஓர்பால் – அதில்
எங்கள் துருக்கர் இளம்பிறை ஓர்பால்
மந்திரம் நடுவுறத் தோன்றும் – அதன்
மாண்பை வகுத்திட வல்லவன் யானோ?

4.கம்பத்தின் கீழ்நிற்றல் காணீர் -எங்கும்
காணரும் வீரர் பெருந்திருக் கூட்டம்
நம்பர்க் குரியர் அவ்வீரர்; -தங்கள்
நல்லுயிர் ஈந்தும் கொடியினைக் காப்பர்.

6.அணியணி யாயவர் நிற்கும் – இந்த
ஆரியர் காட்சியோர் ஆனந்தம் அன்றோ ?
பணிகள் பொருந்திய மார்பும் – விறல்
பைந்திரு வோங்கும்வடிவமும் காணீர்

6.சேர்ந்ததைக் காப்பது காணீர் ! அவர்
சிந்தையின் வீரம் நிரந்தரம் வாழ்க!
தேர்ந்தவர் போற்றும் பரத – நிலத்
தேவி துவஜம் சிறப்புற வாழ்க!

TRANSLATION IN ENGLISH

Look at the banner of Mother;
Come and humbly adore and extol it.

Tall stands the mast, and from its top
The flag of red silken lustre wafts
With the well printed dazzling words
Declaring “Vandhae maatharam” !

Is it a piece of simple silk? Into it
Blows and twirls a mighty typhoon
Even when it rages excessively
It wafts serene a ruby hallow!

Indhra’s thunder bolt and young crescent
Of our Muslim friends bedeck the flag;
At its middle is Mother’s manthra
Its greatness I can’t describe!

Behold them beneath the mast
An immense throng of peerless warriors
Tried and trusted and brave they are
They may give up their lives, sure not the flag!

Behold the phalanxes! Is not
This noble sight a great joy for ever?
Behold their bedecked breasts and forms
The abode of Divine valour!

They are here to guard the flag; behold this!
May their strong willed bravery last for ever
May the banner of Mother- Bharath
By these adored , flourish in fame for ever!

 

 

One of my good friends a learned scholar from Manipal Shri Vis. Gopal has made a post to a group which I proudly  reproduce with the addition of English

நான் தற்போது குடியிருக்கும் மணிப்பாலில் குடியிருப்பாளர்கள் சங்கத்தின் வேண்டுகோள் எனக்குச் சுதந்திர தினத்தில் கொடியேற்றும் வாய்ப்பைத்தந்தது. கொடியேற்றியவுடன் தேச பக்தி சம்பந்தமாக ஏதாவது பேசச் சொல்லியிருந்தார்கள். வந்தே மாதரம் என்று சமஸ்க்ரிதத்தில் தொடங்குவதால் சம்ஸ்க்ரிதத்திலேயே ஒரு 4 வரிக் கவிதை எழுதிப் படித்துப் பொருள் கூறினேன். அதைத் தாழ்மையுடன் இங்கு இடுகிறேன்.

I had an opportunity to hoist the national flag on an Independence Day in a colny where I reside. After hoisting the flag, they wanted me to speak and as I had to start with Vandhe Maatharam in Sanskrit, i wrote a four line poem in Sanskrit, explained its meaning which I share with you.

हे मातः तव दर्शनं ध्वजमुखात् सर्वे लभन्ते वयं
तत्सद्दर्शन सम्भवात् तव जनाः विस्मृत्य भेदान् स्वकान्
तत्संरक्षणधर्ममेव मनसि स्मृत्वा भजन्तः सदा
स्थैर्यं यस्य पराक्रमं च सहजं वन्दे त्रिवर्णं ध्वजम् ||
Hae maatha: thava dharsanam dhwajamoolaath sarvae labanthae vayam
Thathsathdharsana sambhavaath thava janaa:  vismruthya  bhaedhaan swakan
Thath samrakshaNa dharmamaeva manasi smruthwaa bhajantha: sadhaa
Sthairyam yasya paraakramam cha sahajam vandhae thrivarNam dhwajam!!
हे मातः        ஹே (பாரத) அன்னையே!  Hey, {Bharatha) Mother
तव दर्शनं     உன்னுடைய தரிசனத்தை  Your darshan
सर्वे वयं        நாங்கள் அனைவரும்  we all
ध्वजमुखात्   (இந்தக்) கொடியின் மூலமே through this Flag itself
लभन्ते         பெறுகிறோம்!  Get.
तत्सद्दर्शन सम्भवात्   அக் (கொடியின்) காட்சி ஏற்படுகையில் When we get that Flag’s darshan
तव जनाः        உன் மக்கள் (யாவரும்) all your children
स्वकान् भेदान् विस्मृत्य  தம்முடைய பேதங்களை மறந்து   Forgetting their differences
तत्संरक्षणधर्ममेव मनसि स्मृत्वा  அதைக் காக்க வேண்டிய கடமையை   மட்டும் மனத்தில் வைத்து  keeping the duty of protecting in our minds
भजन्तः सदा     ஈடு படுகிறார்கள்! Involve themselves.
यस्य स्थैर्यं पराक्रमं च सहजं  நிலைப்புத்தன்மையும் வீரமும் எதற்குக் கூடப்பிறந்த குணங்களோ  Are Stability and valor born long with
त्रिवर्णं ध्वजम्   (அந்த) மூவண்ணக் கொடியை (That) Tricolor Flag
वन्दे    நான் வணங்குகிறேன்! I pray( salute)
