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!

Leading Indian film actor comedian,
Theatre artist, playback singer and writer
In the Tamil film industry – in  forties and fifties!

WORLD HELLO DAY

In the wonderful creation of the world by the Almighty
Thee is no place for enmity or disharmony-mighty
Friendship and harmony, love and affection, respects and regards
Must prevail all over the globe leaving no scope for conflict!

Alas , we see what prevails at home, society and the world
November twenty first today is the WORLD HELLO DAY each one
To simply greet at least ten friends today to show  the importance
Of personal wish for preserving peace all over-of significance!

On the thoughts words and deeds rest the nobility of each and all
On which the home and society, nation and the world can stand quite tall
Let us promote peace and harmony sans resort to conflicts and
Misunderstanding- God’s purpose to see fruition -times thousand!

 

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!

SPIRITUAL RETREATS

 

“Spiritual retreats” important part of religions many
Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Sufi (Islamic) -heavy
All resort to RETREATS-in solitude or community
Intimate way to improve powers of concentration and insight!.

Withdrawn from the din and dust of atmosphere in a city
Remote village far from the madding crowd- under the giant tree
A sacred hall with an atmosphere serene, simple but great
Indeed  never to be got back the retreat will be a great treat!

Spiritual retreats a source golden for reflection, prayer
And meditation for all more in Buddhism -in rainy season
Goutam  Buddha’s preachings! Darkness is ideal for the retreats
For Christians from a few hours to a month) spent away from  normal life
Reconnecting, in prayer, with God. a sacred and noble practice!
All religions have their own- for serenity, peace and poise!
