HUMAN RIGHTS DAY is 10th December.

 

All living beings created by the Lord Almighty
Have basic rights- known or unknown-humans or animals
Right to live, earn, eat and to be at peace all the life time
Alas! Many times human beings have to fight for rights!

Universal Declaration of Human Rights- Human
Rights Day observed on this day as per UNO-
Political, social, economic, cultural and
Civil rights- constitute human rights for all to enjoy!

Slavery, torture, genocide and war crimes haunted all
A just society cannot tolerate- to stand quite tall
Came the United Nations to the rescue of the world
At least in theory we have with violations bold.

KALAIVANAR BIRTH DAY TODAY

N. S. Krishnan.jpg

Man to be free from the stress and strain of the routine
Needs humor- the stress burster- to laugh heartily-brings in
Joy and laughter to both the giver and listener!
Rightly we have humor clubs functioning everywhere!

We had Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy
Who made the people laugh and forget agony
At the international level with their own style
We had “Charlie Chaplin of India” in KalaivaNar!

KalaivaaNar Krishnan was born this day in nineteen not eight
Leading Indian film actor comedian,
Theatre artist, playback singer and writer
In the Tamil film industry – in  forties and fifties!

ONION IS NOT H2O!

 

 

In  my life as a Blogger since February 2015, every day making one post at least- today it is 968th day and 1035th post! I don’t believe in making a repost of what already I have posted once earlier. But today I am deviating myself from my   “ self imposed” restriction and recycling a post what I did on 15th November 2015, when the  total viewership of ENVIUS THOUGHTS  was 21000 and today it is about to cross 1,15,000 in another few hours from more than 210 countries! Here in this Sunday you find this a slightly modified version. It was ‘ONION IS NOT OXYGEN’ and today it is “ONION IS NOT H2O”!

These are the scientifically advanced days when we find ALTERNATIVES for anything and everything! Please look here:

“Oxygen is not just in the air; it’s on the shelves. It has been discovered by alternative medicine and is being sold in various forms in the health supplement marketplace. Air has to go in and out, Blood has to go round and round.  Oxygen is good. And is easily available in air!

Oxygen is required to support life; therefore more oxygen should make us healthier. It’s not clear how this relates to alternative medicine’s advice on anti-oxidants, but that’s irrelevant. OXYGEN IS GOOD, so we should put it in our soft drinks and breathe it at oxygen bars. Take an oxygen tank home with us — we might feel better. The oxygen vendor might feel better, too. Dr Andrew Weil, the renowned health guru, tells patients with chronic fatigue to ask their doctors to prescribe oxygen for a home trial. Sure, why not? The money it costs will literally vanish “into thin air,” but who cares? OXYGEN IS GOOD.

Similarly can a man live without H2O? Two units of Hydrogen and one unit of Oxygen give water! Can one live without for hours and days together?

In the days of spiraling inflation, when the cost of living soars, when the prices of milk to mango, banana to bindy (lady’s finger), carrot to capsicum, mango to melon skyrocket day by day, the middle class people are the worst hit. Governments and the party in power say they make all-out efforts to contain the prices. Economists quote several factors for price raise-very hard to understand by a common man. Rightly the Opposition parties protest government policies for the pathetic conditions of the people.

Maybe, what cannot be cured must be endured! But I use to wonder whether there is anything in the world that cannot be cured. When I was in my teens six decades ago, I was living at Karaikudi, a part of Chettinad in Tamil Nadu, where the dominant community was indeed rich, orthodox, highly philanthropic and well educated.

I used to go out with my mother to the weekly shandy (vegetable market) and distinctly remember her purchasing the weekly requirements of vegetables for a family of five for less than a rupee! The womenfolk of that dominant community of Chettinad would boycott any shop in the shandy if the cost there was a little higher than in the other shops. The way they treated the shop keeper charging a higher price was unique and the result was that the town was comparatively cheap and life was smooth. All due to the ‘will to resist’ on the part of housewives! Sixty eight years since then, when I find myself helpless managing my household expenses, I wonder whether bringing down the cost of things rests with the government alone or, as an individual, can I have any influence on the uncontrolled rising costs?

Can society play any role in holding the price hike? I would boldly declare ‘yes’, if only society really feels suffocated and would like to do something in this regard. But look at the long queue in hotels to find a seat where ‘dosa’ is sold at Rs. 70 a piece, a cup of 150 ml coffee for Rs. 40! Look at the cinemas where a new film is released with people thronging for the first show paying astronomical amounts. Despite the spiraling cost of petrol and diesel, look at the queue in petrol stations. Money is in the hands of the most and they spend as they like! Those without much, suffer.

I remember my walking without footwear to college, a distance of 8 miles one way. Today, my son wants a scooter to go to school, hardly a kilometer away. Do I ever care to go by bus instead of my two/four-wheeler?

Do I resist purchasing onion at Rs. 80 or tomato at Rs. 50 a kg? Onion is not oxygen without which I cannot breathe! Supposing people do not purchase beans at Rs. 70 a kg, how long would the shopkeeper keep the vegetable on his shelves? — right from the wholesale merchant to my street vendor? If office-goers as a class desist using their petrol/diesel vehicles and choose public conveyance, won’t petrol price come down? If we boycott the auto drivers charging an unreasonably high fare, can they continue forever by fleecing the people?

Today I went to the vegetable vendor and was shocked to be billed Rs. 150 for a kg. of ONION –Big or Small! This triggered my thoughts and the result is this SUNDAY STORY!!!!Yes, onion is not H2O! We cannot live without H2O, but we, sure, can without onion! Prices cannot go up when it begins to rot!

HISTORIC DAY IN INDIAN ECONOMY!

Historic day in Indian economy
The objective of bringing out the black money
Currency notes of high value were demonetized
poor people became poorer-depressed and deserted!

I am a black money holder-my black money
Of four thousand five hundred was brought out rightly
Another three thousand brought out after a few months
still lying safe in my blessed purse in cup board!

Practice of ladies keeping money safe for emergency
Seven thousand was found after the death of my lady
Beloved wife-by the time exchange at bank offer was over
Indian economy grew up sky high- tales of woes for ever!

 

DOUBTING THOMASES!

The great Creator of the Universe made all equal
And fixed faculties to be good and honest-sequel
Peace and harmony, friendship and fraternity with all
Alas! Doubting Thomases have nothing but DOUBT in all!

I believe not in my own self unfortunate-how else
I have belief in others? May be right or wrong-more
Wrong than right- all based on experiences one may say
Ultimate sufferer is the self who develops doubt on all!

Lord Almighty, my God free me from all my doubts- you are
Not excluded! Will you give me what I want or not
Is my deep doubt!I know if only it is good for me
You will! Yet I doubt-Kindly help me to come out of this web!

UGLY EXHIBITION

A joyous occasion should have been alas- my Lord
“Joy of Giving Day –Deepavali” this day my God
Turned out to be a pompous show- vulgar and vain-pity
Soundest day it was-poor crows and dogs and their kin on run!
Sick and the old suffered not a little -worst pollution
Of sound and smoke- even the strongest could not stand the day
Could do nothing but cursing the young and their damn parents!

Children could not sleep or eat pathetic their parents
Weeping children’s cries- good Narakasura was killed!
Deepavali of late appears neither religious
Nor social but has become anti social and pompous!

Spending five hundred for hundred sounds- atrocious
Not once but fifty times- twenty five thousand drained in sounds!
Making the roads dirty with pieces of papers across
Giving respects scant to the “swachh bharat abhiyan”!
May God bring in some sense in the youth and their parents
Irresponsible to the core spending lavish, exhibiting
Their ugly wealth on crackers! Children in millions
Go without food and dress, engaged in child labor!
Old age homes full of inmates with half food or food less!

Here are people spending lavish in their food and clothes
Worst of all in CRACKERS- should be banned for ever!
Self control and discipline have no place unfortunate
Big stick may help- least concern for the neighbors- they hate!
