Disability need not and should not lead one do despair and dejection
Make the individual a burden on the family or society- can plunge into action
In a way that will make equal with others in all respects-notwithstanding.
God has given them all intelligence and wisdom, thinking capacity and act.

This year, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities focuses
On the empowerment of persons with disabilities for inclusive, equitable
And sustainable development -Agenda for Sustainable Development, pledges
To ‘leave no one behind’ and recognizes disability as a cross-cutting issue.

To have some disability or other-minor or major- not one’s making
It is HIS will and the society to accept such persons as individuals
And help as much as possible to make them forget their disability
To lead life as they can and like! Let us play our part with dignity!

HERE IS A PLEDGE -11th November

A Pledge For Holistic Abundance
Communication with the world outside very important
For social, official and domestic life and for success!
Quality of communication with our own self is equally so.
Our conscious mind trains our subconscious mind to believe.

Prayer,  is a communication from our conscious mind
To our subconscious mind, – it is between me and God.
We derive benefit from this auto suggestion- self-Communication.,
The self is communicating to the self!,

My resolve:
I will read and repeat this pledge everyday.
“Day by day,
in every way,
I am becoming Most and more..
Healthy, Wealthy, Loving, Blissful, Spiritual.”

ONION IS NOT OXYGEN!

Onion is not oxygen!

We cannot live without oxygen but we sure can without onion! Prices cannot go up when onions begin to rot!

In the days of spiralling inflation, when the cost of living soars, when the prices of milk to maida, banana to brinjal, 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. The Opposition parties protest government policies for the pathetic conditions of the people but secretly welcome the difficult times so that they can win the next elections.

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 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 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?

I remember my walking without footwear to college, a distance of 8 km. one way. Today, my son wants a scooter to go to school, hardly a kilometre 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?

Yes, onion is not oxygen! We cannot live without oxygen but we sure can without onion! Prices cannot go up when it begins to rot!

PS: Normally in principle I do not repeat any post for a second time! This ofcourse is not a second post in the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS but posting what appeared in the OPEN PAGE of  the leading NEWS PAPER which I am accustomed to read for the past SEVEN DECADES – as a student at 10 th year of age not knowing the significance of any news, views, language used and so on. But I must admit that I could improve my English language by reading this NEWS PAPER right from my boyhood at the instance of my TEACHER – FATHER. Cost of this  Newspaper was TWO ANNAS- of those days! I look with pride my  100 and more LETTERS TO THE EDITOR COLUMN during 1975-1978! On 31st August 2013, when the above artcle was published in the OPEN PAGE, my joy knew no bounds and I felt as if I have secured a NOBEL AWARD! THis is the article I have reproduced as this WEEK”S SUNDAY STORY-1772nd Post  I am sure you – my esteemed viewers – will enjoy and give me your feedback. My mind has green memories of the REVIEW this paper made  of my TRANSLATION OF TELUGU  PANCHARATNA KEERTHANAS of Saint Poet THYAGAYYA into Tamil (available in the form of a CD -produced by the famous Carnatic music team of Madurai- vocal Smt. Ranganayaki Sachidanandam, Violin Sri Sachidanandam, Mridangam Dr. Thyagarajan) which was greatly admired by our former Scientist President of INDIA DR. APJ Abdul Kalam.

WORLD STROKE DAY- October 29th

Image result for world stroke day 2019 theme"

Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent-Lord The Almighty
In HIS own wisdom created all the living beings on earth
To live in health and happiness, peace and plenty, joy and harmony
Yet to constantly think of HIM has also created ill health and diseases!

One way of punishing the people for the sins committed knowingly
Or unknowingly is to make them suffer with some disease-unfortunate.
One such is STROKE- kills not but makes one suffer a lot untold indeed.
Twenty Ninth October is World Stroke Day- observed all over the world.

To raise public awareness of the steps we can take to reduce our risk,
Campaign’s commitment to ‘Cut Stroke in Half’ as a theme this year brisk
To pursue and make the world to take steps to cut the stroke risk to less
Than half and ultimately nil. Let us all resolve to work for it this day.

ENVIRONMENT -CLEAN AND CLEAR? Part III

Over population-urban sprawl!

‘Environment, ‘Environmental protection”, “Environmental issues”
Very commonly discussed today all over-in fact very important
Yet day after day clean and clear environment remains a far cry
And that is a great threat to the welfare of all living beings very sure.

Not that the society is unaware of the issues involved-but unable
To tackle at individual level. Cooperation of all concerned
An absolute must-impossible to get and hence all talk only in air!
Ten issues identified:Pollution, Climate Change, Global Warming,
Deforestation, Overpopulation, Industrial and household wastes,
Acid rain, Ozone Layer Depletion, Genetic Engineering,Urban sprawl !

Pollution all kinds of pollutions by the individual as well
As industries-a pity but none can help to reduce and minimize.
At least if awareness is raised society may think of helping
If not today afuture sans much of pollution may be at sight!
