Shall I say let me be a MILLIONAIRE? No let me a CROREPATI-
Million has not much of a value today as much as a CRORE!!!!!
It’s Be a Millionaire Day! Today an opportunity to dream big
And imagine what life would be as a millionaire! a crorepati!
A million dollars isn’t what it used to be, seeing a seven-
Figure number in our bank account is still financial milestone.
Rightly Gandhiji said if one has more than what he needs, balance
Be held as a custodian for others-poor and downtrodden!
If not cent per cent a major excess can go to orphanages
And old age homes in plenty in the world! Sevalayas and
Uthavum Karangal are there all over needing funds from the public!
Let us help to the extent possible on this awareness occasion!
Sevalaya, Pakkam village
Uthavum karangkal-Children taking food.
Stress and strain part of our life-age and employment, wealth and health
Have little to impact-negative or positive, negative and positive! a paradox!
What stress can do can be experienced- more important is to be aware of stress
And the ways to be away from or not to fall a victim to stress!
Today April sixteenth is National Stress Awareness Day. The day
Designed by the Health Resource Network in nineteen ninety two to raise
Awareness of stress. Day is a chance to take a deep breath and relax.
Stress has a negative effect on the immune system -research has proved.
Chronic stress takes greater toll on our body than acute stress.
Raises blood pressure, increases the risk of heart attack and stroke,
Anxiety and depression, hastens the aging process.
Stress is one omnipresent
Easily coped sure by the competent
On the body and on the mind
On the soul and on the intellect
Age and sex, wealth and status
Stress of-course has little respect!
Faith in God, self and people
Fair to all with love and scruple
Thoughts noble and deeds worthy
Happy hobbies and habits healthy
Yoga sure a medicine for stress
Love for nature, animals and people
Through stress and strain nothing can topple!
A special day for special thoughts, words and deeds for all to know!
Patriot Day is the third Monday of April in United States!
Better to think of much exhorted PATRIOTISM than the patriots.
Noble trait, virtue and quality sure is patriotism!
Patriotism- national pride the feeling of love, devotion
And sense of attachment to a homeland and alliance with other
Citizens with the same sentiment. can be a combination of many
Feelings – own homeland, ethnic, cultural, political aspects!
Patriotism- love for one’s native land and may be symbolism
Of culture,agriculture social bond and the soil in which born!
Patriotism induces nationalism not much different
Yet is -let us develop in our youngsters -nation will progress!
Last words of the dying normal human being groaning and weeping
Hence Mahatma Gandhi Mahatmaji fell backwards on getting bullet shots
Chanting RAM RAM- some say he chanted HEY RAM-RAM was in his lips
Today is SRI RAMA NAVAMI -birth day of LORD RAM -a HOLY DAY !
Ram Navami religious and traditional festival, celebrated
With great enthusiasm by the Hindus all over on the birthday
Of the Lord Rama, the seventh avatar from the Dashavatar
Of the Lord Vishnu.this festival falling on ninth day in Chaitra.
The great Avatar to demonstrate how a human must live on earth
Love and obedience for parents; taking care of brothers and friends
Even under the most trying circumstances in life one may face
On this holy day let us invoke HIS blessings to lead a noble life!
What a wonderful creation of the Omnipotent- my Lord and God
The whole world appears to be a magic land- Magician the God!
As school children we lost ourselves in the magic show of
Magician with his smoke and mirror- his dress peculiar!
March Twenty Ninth today is “SMOKE AND MIRRORS DAY” very interesting
Source of the name based on magicians’ illusions- they are making
Objects appear or disappear by extending or retracting mirrors
Amid a confusing burst of smoke. “smoke and mirrors” audience deceived!
A sort of presentation by which the audience sought to be deceived
God’s creation makes me feel I am permanent as the world is
One’s death today tomorrow becomes his second day of exit
Just a smoke and mirror life! Let us be honest and truthful in life!
