J B N TWENTY FIVE TODAY!

JBN Silver Jubilee Celebration program

One of the leading premier Public Sector Organizations of India that is Bharath our holy Motherland is LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA which was my Alma mater for more than four decades where I learnt the Art and Science of Life and Living! I make my bread and butter even today at past 78!
I have served this great Institution in different parts of the country-Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan- and as a part of our Central Office in Maharashtra.  I have travelled far and wide India for my official duties!
Corporation has developed housing in a very gigantic manner for its employees in some places and for its POLICY HOLDERS in many centers.
Housing for its policy holders is done and in many centers called JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR. In that way we have Jeevan Bima Nagars in places like Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkatta, Delhi, Chennai etc.
Since my last transfer in service in 1998 from Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh to Chennai I have been a resident of JEEVAN BIMA NAGER, CHENNAI where I own a two bedroom flat which I purchased in 1995 when I was in Salem at a total cost of Rs.5, 75,000 including registration charges. A beautiful Nagar by itself one of the biggest in Chennai 944 Flats, Community Hall, Kids World, Youth World, Women’s World etc   within a compound wall and has FIVE  gates in a vast  area under  Ambattur Municipality. –

A quarter century is gone since the colony- a mini BAARATHA NIVAS was born-citizens from North and South, East and West and center – a mini township well taken care of by the office bearers of the JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR FLAT OWNERS WELFARE ASSOCIATION – a Registered Body duly constituted and having a well drafted constitution and bye laws approved by the Government authority right from 1994. Office bearers since inception have been giving their best for the development of the colony and the welfare of the residents. In fact one can confidently say that this JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR IS A MODEL COLONY in Chennai as of now.

The following are SILVER JUBILEE YEAR OFFICE BEARERS:

President: Mr. C. Sundararajan.
Secretary: Mr. P. Boominathan
Treasurer: Mr. Radhakrishnan

Here is my Tamil poem presented on a happy occasion which talks about the greatness of this Jeevan Bima Nagar:. .

ஒற்றுமை ஓங்கவே!

ஒற்றுமை ஒற்றுமை ஒற்றுமை
வேற்றுமையிலும் ஒற்றுமை
ஓங்கவேண்டும் ஒற்றுமை
நாடும் வீடும் ஓங்கிட
வேண்டும் நாட்டில் ஒற்றுமை
வேண்டும் உலகில் ஒற்றுமை!

ஜீவன் பீமா நகரிது
பாரத விலாச நகரிது!                                 8
வடக்கும் தெற்கும்
கிழக்கும் மேற்கும்
கூடி வாழும் நகரிது!

கோலம் கூட ஒற்றுமை
காட்டிக் கொடுத்த நகரிது!
முதற் பரிசும் இரண்டாம் பரிசும்
பெற்றதந்த கோலமே!
ஜீவன் தந்த நகரிது                                   16
பீமா செய்த நகரிது  !
ஜீவன் பீமா நகரிது
நாட்டுக்கே எடுத்துக் காட்டும்
நமது வலிவு மிக்க ஒற்றுமை!

நல்ல சங்கம் நமது சங்கம்
நல்ல வழி காட்டும் சங்கம்
வாழ்க நகரம் வாழ்க சங்கம்
வாழ்க மக்கள் அனைவரும்!                           24

அமைதியும் ஒற்றுமையும்
கைகோர்த்து நடக்கட்டும்!
மகிழ்ச்சியும் மானுடமும்
பெருமையோடு பறக்கட்டும்!
நாடும் நாமும் ஒன்றெனப்
பாடுவோம் இந்நாளிலே
ஏடெடுத்து எழுதுவோம்
என்றும் நின்று நிலைக்கவே!`                              32.

சேலத்தில் இருக்கையிலே செய்தி வந்தது
சேலத்து மாம்பழமாய் இனிமை தந்தது
ஜீவன் பீமா நகர் பிறக்க வழி வகுத்தனர்
ல்லமுறையில் நாமும் வாழப் பாதை தெரிந்தது!

என்ன இந்த இடத்தில் நமது வீடா
என்ற ஐயம்  பிடுங்கித் தின்றது!
வந்து விட்டேன் ஆறு லட்ச விலைகொடுத்தே!
அந்த நாள் முதல் இந்த நாள் வரை                              40
வந்த நண்பர்கள் வளர்ந்து வந்தனர்!

நல்ல சங்கம் அமைத்து நம்மை
நன்றாய் பேணிக் காத்தனர்!
என்னவெல்லாம் செய்ய வேண்டும் என்று
எண்ணிப்பார்த்தனர் அனைவரையும் ஒன்றாக
அணைத்துச் சென்றனர்! அன்றிருந்த நிலைமைதனை
நினைத்துப் பார்க்கிறேன்!

மேடு பள்ளம் அத்தனையும் நேராக்கினர்                         48
பாடுபட்டு மரங்கள் வைத்துப் பசுமையாக்கினர்
எத்தனையோ வளர்ச்சி என்று
வியந்து நிற்கிறேன்!சிரம் தாழ்த்தி நன்றிதனை
சொல்லி மகிழ்கிறேன்! அவர்கள் பட்ட பாட்டினையே
எண்ணிப் பார்க்கிறேன்! காலை மாலை இரவு என்று
தண்ணீராய் கடமை புரிந்தனர்!காலனியை மேம்படுத்தி மகிழ்ச்சி கொண்டனர்!
என் வீட்டை நான் காப்பது எனது கடமை
என்பதனை என்றும் எண்ணி நடந்து செல்கிறேன்!
கால் நூற்றாண்டை நாமும் கடந்திருக்கிறோம்
மேலும் பல்லாண்டு காலம் மகிழ இருக்கிறோம்1

வாழ்க நகர், வாழ்க சங்கம், வாழ்க மக்கள் என்று கூறி
முரசம் கொட்டுவோம்! இதய கீதம் பாடுவோம்!                  61

News came when I was in Salem
Sweet like Salem Mango it was
Way was laid for the birth
Jeevan Bima Nagar in mirth
Road was seen for our happy life!
IS this the place where we have our house
Doubt began to nag our mind!
Came here purchasing for six lakhs!
From that day to this day
Friendship with many developed
Good association was formed and
Take care of us sound!
What all to be done
Was their constant thought
Took all of us as one together! Think I                                48
The condition that prevailed then
Ups and downs in the roads were leveled
Planting sapplings they made colony go green
So much of development delighted I am
Bowing my heads I gratefully thank them
Morn day and night- never an issue
Did their duties as the water does
Found joy and happiness at the developed Nagar
My duty it is to maintain my flat nice
Conscious I am and do take care
Quarter century we have walked together
Very many more years we are to enjoy
Hail to thee our Nagar, our Association, our people
Let us trumpet aloud and sing the song of joy!                           62

EVILS OF FRAUD

 

Image result for images of thiruvalluvar

Unfortunately the society is beset with frauds and fraudsters. The following are Ten Thirukkural Couplets translated by me into English. Wortds of wisdom that came from Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar more than 2000 years ago: This indeed the u8rgent need of the hour!

1.
Indulge not in fraud
If not to be insulted
Guard from evil deeds!                                                 (281)
2.
It brings awful woes
Very thought of defrauding
Coveting others!                                                           (282)
3.
Wealth through coveting
Disappears in no time
A sin – demeaning!                                                       (283)
4
Fruits of fraud and greed
Though seem sweet, bring bitter woes
Attempt and get freed!                                                 (284)
5.
To show love and grace
Is not the wont of a fraud
He covets and falls!                                                      (285)
6.
Whose life uncontrolled
Go with love and lust for fraud
Get bad uncontrolled!                                                   (286)
7.
Those who know their strength
Know well the evils of fraud
Indulge not a length!                                                    (287)
8.
Fraudulent mind stands
As a virtuous thought holds
Hold to virtue strong!                                                   (288)
9.
Evil thoughts bring doom
They sure suffer and perish
Shun fraud, avoid gloom!                                             (289)
10.
Fraudulent falls sure
Liability on earth
Heaven greets the pure!                                                (290)

May 7th-National Tourism Day

Image result for national tourism day May 7th 2019 theme

Travel makes a person perfect rightly said out of experience
Confined to home or own place puts one under constraints
Going out of one’s place, State, country indeed great practice
New learning from the place and people new –sans restraints!

Travel as a part of TOURISM is very much unique and great
Tourism opens up people to experiences new and unexpected
Giving lot of inputs new  on people, their culture, language
A golden opportunity of course at a cost- physical and financial!

Travel  good for things many – for business, on a  family trip,
Giving up everything to pursue a nomadic life, traveling
Makes us happier  builds self-confidence through new experiences,
Breaks barriers and allows to meet people from all over!.

People visiting foreign countries  encouraged to learn
New phrases, words of the native languages of every foreign
Country  visiting.. Speaking in foreign tongues helps people
Attain a whole new outlook in life and world!

Culture shock indeed is the impact of moving from a culture
Familiar  to an unfamiliar. surprise of a new environment,
With new people and a new way of life worth the time and cost
Never to be got experiences and joy, opportunities and great toast!

what if you wrote a catchier post title? I am not saying your content is not
solid, however suppose you added something that makes people want
more? I mean UNIQUE NELLORE – Envius Thoughts is a little plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
news titles to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a picture

TRUE SIR! “If the farmers refuse to work and keep quiet, even the saints and sages cannot continue with their prayers and penance.”

But it is unfortunate that the farmer is not getting his due share in the crop he produces. Only the middlemen are making money out of his toil.

It is a pity that still he is the victim of vagaries of nature particularly the rain God Varun…. ativrishti and annavrishti.
