National Pharmacist Day-January 12th

 

Image result for national pharmacist day 2019

Man to be happy should be healthy!If health is lost something is lost!
Rightly said but how, where and when none knows-medicines we need fast!
None can claim he has no need or never visited a medical shop
Many in fact live in Pharmacist’s paradise-a medical shop!!

Pharmacists are not simple persons to give the medicine on Doctors’
Prescription! National Pharmacist Day is today January twelfth
To recognize and honor all pharmacists across the nation.
Role of pharmacists has shifted from “lick, stick and pour” dispensary role
To being member of the health care team involved in patient care as a whole
After mastering biochemical mechanisms of action of drugs,
Physiology, and pathophysiology,they interpret and
Communicate their specialized knowledge to patients and healthcare providers.

Now pharmacists advise patients and health care providers on the selection, Dosages, interactions and the side effects of prescriptions, along with
Having the role as a learned intermediary between a prescriber and a patient. Monitoring the health and progress of patients! Let us wish them all well!

POETS’ PET!

Oh, POETS, if you miss your O you become PETS of the world!

Stalwart IPCian Jayaram Seshadri with his pet

In the creation of the Lord Almighty, Omniscient and Omnipresent
Unique are the living beings-humans, animals, pretty dogs and cats!
Poets  love nature-the God- and its manifestations-li ving beings
Accountants turned poets- keeping great pets with them and enjoy!

Poetry their first pet- one Jeesji we call-at India Poetry Circle
Who loves his pet dogs- trained to receive all poets at his home!
Another ESAR tending his pet poetry,-dog. beautiful plants  flowers!

A lady had a LION as her pet in her young age long years ago-fine
The Lion was left in a zoo later for greater protection and life nice
She went to the zoo one day to find how it was nursed and kept
Moment  lion saw her, jumped  from the cage, embraced and slept!
Pet indeed a pet whether a child or adult, cat or dog, parrot or lion
Greatness of the creation of Lord Almighty and-Omniscient!

I  know for sure that I am not a student of English literature; yet some interest in poetry drew me to the world of POETRY and I am deemed to be a bilingual poet-and recently I was offered honorary Doctorate for my literary achievements!?!?!?!?

The magnificent function was organized by the family of the veteran

One of them is a selfish Dental surgeon of great repute- selfish in the sense- he never allowed his university first rank in his Five year BDS and three year  MDS to go out of his hands to any one else!!!!!!!!

He has been my great friend and my caring Doctor for long. I was a toothless person and he made me a TOOTHFUL-TRUTHFUL -PERSON!

This Blogger knows no Raaga or Thaala but he can definitely enjoy the divinity in music in any genre! .

MELAKARTA RAGAS

Any music has its own method of rendering and naturally Carnatic music has its own nuances- sophisticated nuances- and one to master it is to take Himalayan efforts and here was that multifaceted personality- hero of this Sunday story- had made indeed HIMALAYAN efforts and successfully accomplished! Raagas and thaalas are the life line of great Carnatic music in any language.But here was a multi faceted personality hailing from God’s own country KERALA and settled in Chennai for long. Among his several accomplishments one was writing poetry in Tamil- KEERETHANAS in praise of Divinity and Gods.

Music is Divine and soul lifting, enriching and ennobling. He was a good musician, a nice mridhangist, efficient astrologer, a multilingual poet, a great devotee of Lord Ayyappa , author of poems in hundreds, a social worker for Ayyappa Seva Sangh, Anna Nagar, Chennai for long. Not having any formal Tamil learning, he wrote several, several Tamil songs!

Visually challenged he was, he visited Sabarimala for several decades. Blessed with an understanding and intelligent wife and sons his book was published and released in a grand function which I was fortunate to participate and key in this Sunday story of this week! .

Mēḷakarta is a collection of fundamental musical scales (ragas) in Carnatic music (South Indian classical music). Mēḷakarta ragas are parent ragas (hence known as janaka ragas) from which other ragas may be generated. In Hindustani music the thaat is equivalent  of Melakarta. There are 10 thaats in Hindustani music, though the commonly accepted melakarta scheme has 72 ragas.

“RAGA RAYS”

Coming to the book release function-function was to release a wonderful book titled as RAGA KIRANAS- RAYS OF RAGAS- 72 Melakartha Raagaas authored by the HERO of this Story-multifaceted personality-beloved father of my Dental surgeon.-

166 page wonderful book you can see the front and back covers below.

We have seen earlier the nice Invitation card prepared for the occasion.

Function started sharp as planned at 6.30 pm in a beautiful hall in Naradha Gana Sabha, Chennai.

Three greatly reputed personalities were the chief guests and seated on the Dias.

World renowned 74 year old MRIDHANGIST-KARAIKUDI MANI was the main on the Dias who recommended Shri Rajakumar Bharathi- great grandson of my mentor from heaven Mahakavi Subramanya Bharathiyar.

The mridangam is a percussion instrument from India of ancient origin. It is the primary rhythmic accompaniment in a Carnatic music ensemble. Guru Karaikudi Mani is the top mridangist in the world today. He is the son of my high school teacher in Karaikudi where I had my education and Shri Mani was a couple of years junior to me.

Guru Karaikudi Mani playing his Mridangam

He writes in his preface to the book that was released thus:

Greatness of the author in astrology indeed is something remarkable. He has exemplary knowledge of music; a great devotee of Lord Ayyappa. He is an eminent mridangist too. Besides composing keerthanas on different pantheons of Hinduism, he has composed 72 keerthanas in 72 mela kartha ragas. That is something awe inspiring.

His last wish was that all his compositions must be published in the form of a book, practiced and rendered by musicians all over. My request to all musicians-sangeetha vidwans- is to fulfill his wish”.

Giving his views on the composition musician and great grand son of Mahakavi Bharathi Rajkumar Bharathi says: “ most outstanding is he has a tremendous knowledge of music. Composing songs in 72 melakartha ragas is not an easy task.In each of the verse, he has made use of the name of the respective melakartha raaga in each of his 72 songs!

 

Voice From Heaven

Faithful wife of the author poet, Astrologer, no surprise, heard distinctly his voice from his heavenly abode and beautifully quoted the same in the RAAGA RAYS released on that pleasant evening function. She concludes: “Thus, comes an end to the VOICE FROM HEAVEN of my husband from his heavenly abode and that I have verbatim given as Preface to this monumental work ”.

What a great and nobler husband and what a dutiful wife! One of the finest and noblest couples created by the Lord Almighty!

On the dais were the Chief guests of the evening three in number and the noble Doctor son of the noble father. After the prayer song of one of the songs composed by the poet on the Goddess of Learning, SARASWATHI rendered by Shuba Iyer, floral tributes were made by the three guests. Doctor son welcomed the Chief guests on the dais and the other invitees off the dais in a short and sweet language- mixed English and Tamil! Floral tributes were paid by the Chief Guests for the portrait of the poet kept in a decorated chair.

The chief guests in their own unique manner paid rich and eloquent tributes to the poet for his genius composition of 72 Tamil keerthanas in seventy two raga karthas.

All those connected wit preparation and release of the Book were duly honored including this Blogger which he does not deserve!

Short and sweet Vote of thanks was proposed by the first son of Doctor.

There after there was a fine music program exclusively poems composed by the hero of the day the multi faceted personality..

TREE TALKS -3

It is true you need not wash the tumbler-glass or stainless steal
Every time you take a cup of tea or coffee or water-feel
Not the pain of finding place to keep the tumblers and glasses
In your kitchen cup board or dining table or some other space!

Easy and light to drink from a paper cup- including ice cream
Not very costly either -so you people have switched over
To paper cups and tumblers increasingly in these happy days
For you and sad days for me and my kith and kin in the tree world.

I am Douglas- a tree talking: My family was killed for
Paper cups. If you are a frequent drinker of coffee or
Tea please use a reusable mug. After all, I and my
Family clean your air all the twenty four hours of the day.

Good morning Sir. I am really in a pleasant surprise. I never thought that my responses will be one of your posts, because of my normal English. Really it’s an honor for me. I am blessed and overjoyed. When I viewed my responses in this post, I was thinking whether all this was written by me. I want to write so much but unable to express my feelings. Wishing you a sumptuous Sunday Sir

16.7.18
Congratulations Sir. Tremendous pace. Just 4 posts. Wishing to cross 158000 with 1290th post.

18.7.18
Good morning Sir. We had a nice read about South African anti apartheid revolutionary, philanthropist and political leader Nelson Mandela. It is very apt to remember him on his birth day, born exactly 100 years ago. His quotes are very popular throughout the world. “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head if you talk to him in his language that goes to his heart”.

19.7.18
Good morning Sir. Today’s post has taken me back to my childhood movie watching days. In some old Telugu movies, people are shown going to Burma for livelihood and the hero is hailed as returned from Rangoon, the earlier Capital. In fact there is a movie titled” Rangoon Rowdy”. If my memory goes right, Burma is famous for its rubber industry.

22.7.18
Good morning Sir. Please check 10 th line of 1st para. For will it is typed as ill. Please correct it. I will be back Sir. Going for a walk with my wife.

Sir, Had a nice read. Happy to hear that your mother tongue is ‘ Telugu’ and also you are graduated in mathematics. I too have flair for Mathematics(Arithmetic). ” I know no God ….

……
Be kind, be friendly”.
All this shows your true self. You are a perfect humanist. I too believe in humanism. No God for me. Whether you like it or not, I am an atheist. I want to share with you. Long back (30 yrs back) some homam was performed in Kadapa. Everybody gave donations . After this incident during that time only, floods created havoc in Kavali. Donations are raised by our union. Most were reluctant to donate citing one reason or other. For homam — readily came forward, For helping—– reluctant. After going through the post, I say that you are everything- a poet, a humanist, a mathematician. You are in a single word
” what not”. I will not further bore you. .

25.7.18
Good morning Sir. Congratulations on a mention about your blog-post on 06.07.18,health is wealth by EricMWalk. We LICians will treasure you as our wealth.

Good morning Sir. Today is 28 th and not 29 th. Please change today as tomorrow
Sir, finished walking etc. By seeing the post,I recollected story on tigers by Jim Corbett- British author. In the beginning, he hunted large number of man-eating tigers in India. He wrote many books recollecting his hunts & experiences. Later in life he spoke out for the need to protect India’s wildlife and was instrumental in creating National reserve park for the endangered Bengal tiger, named Jim Corbett National Park in his honor.

Congratulations Sir . The paper cuttings posted now and then are not clear Sir. We could read the information with some difficulty. Congratulations once again Sir on going to receive the award at the hands of Union minister

I take pride and feel my profession as very Noble. Yogakshemam Vahamyaham.
13.11.18
Good morning sir. Now a days, kindness is fast disappearing. To some extent, technology is killing our inner qualities. Addicted to smart phones! When some untoward incident occurs, instead of taking a rescue act, many people are engrossed in taking videos of the incident.
In this context, whether apt or not,I would like to share the Kevin Carter incident.
Carter shot in Sudan a photograph of a little girl starved and hunger stuck lying on ground while a vulture lurked on the nearby ground. A few minutes later he left the place. The photograph won Pulitzer prize. When he was basking in glory someone commented that there was another vulture at that place, that is Carter himself as he hasn’t cared about the girl. Carter could not withstand his act and committed suicide at young age of 33 in 1994.
