   HAIBUN AND HAIBUNEERS! (Part 1)

Images for Haibun and Haibuneers க்கான பட முடிவு

I am very sure that my esteemed viewers will be surprised at the very caption of this week’s Sunday Story in the Envius Thoughts! Yes.
There are oceans and seas all over the world. We know Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic and Southern oceans each having its own seas numbering 21, 25, 9, 8 and 6 respectively besides 6 landlocked seas!
Normally we have heard the language and its rich literature in the form of prose, poetry and dramas are vast like  an ocean!
I used to quote that “Art and Literature of the highest order cannot flourish in a world which is increasingly becoming mechanical and the society a rocket!
To disprove the statement we come across LITERARY REVOLUTION as Industrial Revolution, or Cultural Revolution,r Economic Revolution or Fashion Revolution!
Literature in any language is growing fast and more so with ENGLISH-naturally!
We know there are several Gene-res in English poetry:It is not a fun!

We are familiar with HAIKU, TANKA, SENRYU etc.- short verses of Japanese origin.
You may be wondering what the TITLE of the story to do with these matters.
I am glad to share with you my literary lovers all over the world about the new and innovative form of HAIBUN- which is a combination of Haiku poem and prose and the practitioners are known as Haibuneers.
I know of one poet of repute by name Rochellie Potkar from Mumbai author of “The Arithmetic of breasts and  other stories”, “Four Degrees of Separation” is the alumna of Iowa’s International Writing Program, Fall 2015. Widely anthologized, her prose has been read and interpreted by actors and dancers on stage in Iowa and Portland. She was the 2016 winner of the Open Road Review short story contest. Her poem Cellular: P.O.W  was shortlisted for the 2017 Hungry hill international poetry competition., Ireland. She is he 2017 recipient of the Charles Wallace writer’s fellowship, University of Sterling.
I came across a review of her book PAPER ASYLUM and on pursuing, I have landed myself in her wonderland of HAIBUN!  This Sunday story is its result
We know HAIKU, TANKA, SENRYU etc.- short verses of Japanese origin.

In fact Haiku is a short verse in 5-7-5 format- three lines of 5,7,5 syllables. Nowadays these Haiku  poems have become very popular in several languages.
You may be wondering what the TITLE of the story to do with these matters.
I am glad to share with you my literary lovers all over the world about the new and innovative form of HAIBUN- which is a combination of Haiku poem and prose and the practitioners are known as Haibuneers.

I came across a review of her book PAPER ASYLUM and on pursuing, I have landed myself in her wonderland of HAIBUN!  This Sunday story is its result!

Let us hear about her book in her own words:
Haibun in Me
I remember a day in Hyderabad when I was
introduced to my first book of haibun. I began
reading it to kill time before a literary event, but
couldn’t put the book down. I am not a reader who
can be enthralled easily. Anything can distract me: a
film, a phone call, a friend, a better plan, the aroma of
food . . . But here, within 250 pages were 120 haibun,
sketching universes of revelations in synopsized
depth—summarized lifetimes, told with lucidity, in a
frame no longer than a page that set tales adrift with
a lingering aftertaste of haiku.
I read 120 haibun that day, traversing ages,
continents, and eras through confessions, memory, and
the anecdotes of pain and pleasure. I remember feeling
enriched, as though I had read 120 novels or watched
120 films, through slow-moving window frames of
worlds, going far into the multiplicity of slant, idiom
and thought-thread. By night I had haibun fever. This
has to be it! I told myself, where the storyteller and the
poet merge into a sangam on a page.
We know the haiku: two images juxtaposed in a
fragment (one line) and a phrase (two lines) that link
and shift. The haibun, then, is prose poetry interspersed
with haiku. Written in a first-person narrative, in the
present tense, it can range from autobiography to
Diary writing, essay to travel-journal writing. Like the
haiku, the haibun begins in the everyday events of life
and can be described as a narrative of an epiphany. The
practitioner of haibun is called a haibuneer. There
can be 100 haiku in a haibun, but we generally find
one or two. The haiku forms an integral part of the
haibun and follows the same link and shift inherent
to all Japanese short poetry forms, including haiga,
tanka and senryu. While the haiku links and shifts
between its phrase and fragment, the haibun does so
between its title, prose, and haiku. The link and shift
apes the continuity of life’s wheel, keeping in motion
the navigation to new territories of notion, imagery,
and feeling.
Once a guru said that to practice Japanese poetry,
>one must celebrate and curate nature, becoming
ornithologist, zoologist, biologist, spiritualist, psychologist,
and painter—all at once. If poetry is a niche
genre in the world of literature, the Japanese forms
are more so. The haibuneers and haijins the world
over are a subculture practising in quietude, with
limited printed-book possibilities. In India, a couple
of hundred members constitute an online Facebook
group, INhaiku, and converge every day to weigh
words like goldsmiths, for brevity between lines 1, 2,
and 3 of the haiku.
Every time I enter a new college classroom for a
workshop and tell students that to write haibun they
can be a bit of a storyteller, personal diarist, traveler,
chronicler, and poet, there is a sigh of relief that runs
through. No one feels excluded.
I think the time for haibun has come, given the
small reading screens and attention deficits. Or the fact
that this is an accessible form allowing its practitioner

to intersect story and poetry, besides acquiring ediblesounding
titles like haibuneers and haijins, while
practicing the art of word zen.
Since I write in other forms, I think it’s interesting
to mention that in relation to free verse poetry, I
have found the haibun to have sentences stacked
horizontally. While comparing it to flash fiction, the
‘Act 3’ is a haiku.
St. Xavier’s College was the first in Mumbai
to include the haibun in its syllabus under Emerging
Poetry Forms, whereas Wilson and V.G. Vaze colleges
welcomed the haibun through workshops by me.
But I am probably a late-comer to this bandwagon
of haiku and haibun practitioners, probably an even
later champion. The stalwarts in India who have
affected me, and to whom I pay my obeisance, are
Angelee Deodhar, Johannes Manjrekar, Kala Ramesh,
Geetanjali Rajan, K. Ramesh, Gautam Nadkarni,
Paresh Tiwari, Raamesh G. Raghavan, Akila
Gopalakrishnan, and the many whose works I come
across in international journals and magazines.
A special note of thanks to Kim Richardson for
going through an earlier version of this book and
saying, ‘Your haibun are good, and I don’t say that
lightly. You “get” the form.’ I have never forgotten
those words. My deepest gratitude to Michael
Rehling, Christopher Merrill, and Gabriel Rosenstock
for writing a quote for this book.

A must-read book is the Journeys series, edited
by Angelee Deodhar, while online archives of
Contemporary Haibun Online, Haibun Today, and Cattails
are the other sources to deepen one’s morning zen.

VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part 19

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKR Sivagnanam க்கான பட முடிவு

In continuation of last Sunday story, here is the VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part 19.  We have been giving the views of our regular viewer and commentator Shri OKR Sivaganam who was my colleague in the great Public Sector Undertaking – Life Insurance Corporation of India, which I proudly served for four decades and more. Shri Sivagnanam is regular in viewing ENVIUS THOUGHTS and sharing with a review thereon on a day today basis. It is a matter of delight that he is as enthusiastic in viewing and reviewing as I am in posting! -religiously meticulous! Kindly read and enjoy. Here we have covered his Reviews in from May 1st to 31st May of this year.
An additional aspect is he goes through my very early postings in 2015 till he came in contact with ENVIUS THOUGHTS and makes reviews to the delight of my esteemed viewers.
Part 18 covered up to 30/04/2018. Here it is up to 31st May 2018

31/5/18.
Awareness created through your nice post on World No Tobacco Day today!
It’s good that heart disease is focused this year to educate the tobacco users!
Reasons may be many for the ailments connected with heart, but the part being played by tobacco in its various forms cannot be overlooked, and hence the need for propagating the negative effects that go with it!
It’s not that they are not aware of its consequences, but that they find it difficult to give the practice a go-by due to their addiction over a period of time!

A mental preparation on their part can make them slowly drift from the habit, and save themselves from worst results in future!
The smokers must understand the fact of passive smokers being put in more trouble due to their unmindful act, and save the society too in the process!
Awareness is better directed at the people who get themselves addicted to this habit quite recently, for it’s easy to make them alive to the seriousness, compared to those on a long
‘innings!’

29/5/18.
Last year this day on Everest conquest!
29/5/18.
A nice post in memory of Tenzing who scaled the Mount Everest first with Hillary!
Missionary zeal and passion must have been behind their great ‘ feat ‘!
We must congratulate their preparation and the spirit that goes with this splendid achievement!
Both Tenzing and Hillary are an inspiration for the mountaineering lovers who may wish to undertake similar tasks in future!
Tributes to the EVEREST HEROES!

28/5/18.
Voices heard and heard enlarge the contents, making it more visible to the eyes, and giving the larger picture!

27/5/18.
Nice of Shri. Vasudevan’s views having been reproduced by you as this week’s Sunday story!
Let him continue to post his views and empower your ENVIUS THOUGHTS!
Your ‘ mission ‘ with ‘ passion ‘ goes unhindered to the day, and there’s not an iota of doubt in its non-stop JOURNEY in the days to come with more vitality to make its presence realized by more number of new ‘ visitors ‘!
I’m sure, your entry into the ASIAN BOOK OF RECORDS will also take care of this aspect, as you’ll further embark on new approaches to make the BLOG still more welcome for the sheer quality of its CONTENTS, and the way it’s presented!
May the Almighty play its part to make yours a TOWERING BLOG!
Wishing you a happy Sunday!

26/5/18
A nice post on Napoleon as Emperor!
A personality who rose from obscurity to the command of the most of Europe!
An inferiority complex he developed in his childhood days – very much responsible for power of his will, and determination to succeed in his endeavors!
An indomitable courage that raised his stature as the King of Italy!
A commander par excellence, instilling a sense of win amongst his soldiers!
A super – hero of the French Revolution, winning many battles for the country!
An expert in handling the financial aspects meticulously for the cause of the nation – a reminder to the world leaders of today to follow suit!
A strategist who prioritized the issues to ultimately taste success in his missions!
A salute to the emperor Napoleon Bonaparte!

25/5/18.
A nice revelation on Thyroid!
Diseases are many, and so too are treating methods to combat or control them!
Imagine a life without physical ailments!
We can very well perform all the functions, and be happy and peaceful!
Not so in almost all of us, with one or the other challenging, and so compromising, the quality of life to our dismay and disappointment!
An issue that’s common nowadays is the thyroid dysfunction – hypo and hyper – that necessitates, among other things, taking suitable food, and of course, medications as suggested by the physician!
Proper care and attention will keep us away from the complications arising out of this condition, and let us therefore spread awareness at least amongst the group of people we move with, and avoid its incidence to the extent possible!

23/5/18.
Nice to see your post on World Turtle Day!
All the creations in this world have a purpose to serve in their own way!
It’s all the handiwork of the Almighty, and nothing can be set aside as of insignificance!
It’s through the creations of the God that humans take a leaf or two, and find them applicable in the day-to-day life!
Though many attributes come to our mind on the mention of turtle, it’s sturdiness of the turtle that appeals most to the human beings!
Turtles’ slow movement cannot make one underestimate its inherent power that goes with it!
Didn’t we hear about the adage: “Slow and steady wins the race?”
22/5/18.
A nice post on Biological Diversity!
As you wrote, biodiversity cannot be viewed in isolation!
A subject that lacks sensitivity on our part!
An issue more relevant as long as the world continues to exist – a must-concept to occupy the mind-space, perennially!
An all-out effort and consciousness to take care for the biodiversity to work and take care of us!
A singular and most important concern for biodiversity lies in nurturing NATURE in all possible ways!
A neglect on our side brings in its wake all the ills that lessen the quality of our life, which after all no one likes to happen!
If fear of dangers alone can make us sensitive to this all-important issue, let us not to hesitate to fear, and introduce remedy in the process!
22/5/18
Museum, a thing of JOY and KNOWLEDGE!

காலையில் நல்லதொரு கவிதையைப் படித்ததில் மட்டற்ற மகிழ்ச்சி.
அன்னைக்கு நிகர் அன்னையே அன்றி
வேறெவர் உளர்?
அன்பையும் பாசத்தையும் பண்பையும் சீராட்டி அள்ளிக் கொடுப்பதில்
வேறெவர் போட்டியிட்டு வெற்றி கொய்த முடியும்?
இரக்கத்திற்கும் அற்பணிப்பு உணர்வுக்கும் இலக்கணம் வகுக்க உதித்த அன்னையின் ஒளி நம் வாழ்க்கைப் பாதையை எளிதாக்கி இட்டுச் செல்லும் ஓர் அற்புத சக்தி.
அந்த அன்னையின் சக்தியை – அரவிந்த அன்னையின் சக்தியை – போற்றி வணங்குவோம்!
18/5/18
Nice to view your post on National Visit Your Relatives Day!
When we go distant places responding to the need of employment /profession/business, etc., it’s out of question to meet our relatives frequently as used to be before!
And so we must never lose the opportunity thrown in before us to meet and exchange pleasantries and memories with our near and dear ones during our occasional visits to our original place of living!
It’s a sort of refreshing our minds after a long gap of unintended separation!
After all we are social animals and cannot remain insensitive to whatever, good and bad, happened to our relatives in our forced absence!
Sharing the information in person has the positive impact of relieving our pains and sufferings, and of the visited as well!

And so let us make full use of our periodical visits quite meaningfully and renew our cherished relationship ever to remain current!
17/5/18
Nice to see your post on World Hypertension Day today!
16/5/18
Your post on National Biographers Day assumes significance in as much as it reminds one of the importance of great personalities qualifying themselves to be part of our past history!
Some truly great are averse to getting them highlighted in the public, and they like to exit unknown from this world!

They don’t like others going extravagant with their lavish sprinkling of words of appreciation, despite their true worth!
Hence the need for the biographers to bring them in the limelight, and let the people benefited with revelations on what those unheard-of intellectuals had to say on varied subjects!
Not knowing our own past history is in effect a dangerous proposition taking away our right to know our own culture!
No denying that autobiographies are very much qualified to bring out the first-hand information right from the heart of the writer, in the absence of which, biographers stand to fill the vacuum by presenting the facts uncolored and untwisted for the progeny!

15/5/18
A nice post on International Day of Families!
Harmonious relationship within a family is fundamental to the success of the family!
Happy families put together see the birth of a happy society!
And happy societies the world over make the entire world happy and peaceful!
Sounds Utopian?
Yes, but we may not forget the fact of continuous rain drops going to make the large and mighty ocean!
Like the small but concrete steps contributing to the success of a task, conscious efforts put in by each and every family will surely make an ‘international family’ a possibility!

Deep understanding, patience, and a policy of give-and-take can definitely make international family a reality!
Long live the bond within the constituents of the family unit, and happiness prevail everywhere!
14/5/18.
Your post on 8th on World Red Cross Day is all praise for the Movement that extends its helping hand to the suffering and the needy!
But for empathy and sacrifice overflowing, the less privileged may not get the support at the right time when needed most!
Especially when people, young and old, are stranded due to natural calamities, the Red Cross Movement’s role is indispensable and so worthy indeed!
The selfless personnel working for the prestigious Movement deserve our whole-hearted appreciation, that acts as an encouragement for their continued service to humanity!
And this day let us wish them and their families all the best to take the Movement to its amazing heights!

13/5/18.

Importance of fairness beautifully revealed in your post on World Fair Trade day yesterday!
Fairness and ethics are in danger these days, and all must try to bring them back in the limelight!
Service providers and traders need to concentrate on this aspect to improve their share in the ever competing market!
That a customer is the king must come before the businessman in trying to market his product!
Practicing honesty as the best policy enables the trader not only to keep his existing customers under his flock, but also to increase the customer base further and farther, which in effect means increased sale resulting in more profit!
Remaining truthful pays extremely well, and the customers are bound to develop a sense of un-shifting loyalty towards the preferred shop or establishment for their needs!
After all it’s customers’ hard earned money going in to the traders’ pocket, making them prosperous!
And it’s the quality and quantity that matters to the buyers, whether it be a product or a service!
Value-addition should be the mantra adopted by marketeers around to keep their going smooth and continuous!

9/5/18.
Nice it’s to read your post on Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity day!
Not everyone is fortunate to be riches!
Some are born really rich with all the comforts of life!
Some manage to lead a contented life with what they have!
Some go all out to enjoy life no matter what they get is through legitimate means or otherwise!
Some experience the ordeals of life without having the wherewithal to meet them!
Some have nothing with them, and their very living is a challenge without the alms coming from the good-hearted souls!
Affordable and charity-minded have a great role in alleviating the sufferings of have-nots in all possible ways!
Let that class of people ever increase to drive the poorest of poor away from the hardships they undergo, and make them happy and comfortable!
And let us pray, the disadvantaged group slim its size, and have the courage and determination to gradually alter their position for the better!

7/5/18.
Nice to read your post on Love’s Baby Soft Day!
Who can deny ‘being natural is beautiful’?
But commercial advertisements are very powerful and inducing that the viewers are induced to make use of the products recommended!
We know very well that appearances are deceptive, yet we are mesmerized into believing what’s not believable!
Whether true or false, we’re attracted to brand values created, and we must learn to turn a deaf ear to them gradually, and return to nature’s way!
Once we understand that innocence of a baby is beautiful, we may try to discard alluring advertisements as of no meaning, and begin to mend our ways to align with nature!

4/5/18
Baby Day in remembrance of babies across the globe! The cheers and pleasures that a baby brings in the midst of a family are unfathomable and limitless! It can be understood only by a childless couple for a very long time after their wedlock! The smiling and innocent face of a child subsides our problems to a great extent! It’s a natural and effective therapy available to humankind! The cry of a child, for whatever reason, is a thing of worry for the members of the family concerned! The disappearance of cry of a baby is in effect appearance of happiness in the family! It’s a day of celebration and revelry for all concerned! Happy Baby Day to all!

4/5/18
International Fire Fighters Day post is a nice read!
Yes, fire is very much essential for life and living!
With safety in mind, chances of fire erupting are ruled out to the maximum!
Occasions beyond our control call for the intervention of God- like firefighters to challenge the Fire-God suitably!
This way theirs is noble service for the people affected by sudden and unexpected fire devastating the lives and property beyond recovery!
This day let us salute the firefighters for their selfless service despite the risks involved in their job!

3/5/18.
A tied press – you unceremoniously surrender your integrity and ethical standards to power mongers, and compromise your true nature!
Please don’t do it to establish your supremacy!

1/5/18
What a nice Tamil poem on May Day and its translation in English!
Workers of the world unite for their prosperity and that of world society!
Without the toiling work force, capitalists have no place to boast of, and so both are dependent on one another!
Whether it’s rain or shine, the workers continue to contribute to the economy in a large measure!
Well being of people is in direct proportion to the sweat put in by the labor!
Whither our happiness, when the working class decides to strike work!
Without their service, we’re nowhere in this world!
But,
We all are in a sense workers, sincere and serious, doing one thing or the other, just as we’re served by others!
Wish everyone a happy May Day!

With this comes to the end this SUNDAY story and I am sure my esteemed viewers would have enjoyed the views and reviews of Mr.O K R Sivanganam of Envius Thoughts.

TALE OF A BLOGGER 25.

Blogger in front of GOA church

Today it is 1197th day of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and 1250th post(a land mark day in the life of the Blog) necessitating the TALE OF A BLOGGER in tune with the tradition of the Blog- A TALE FOR EVERY FIFTY POSTS as a Sunday Story!
This tale 25 is again for the third time unique (is it peculiar!?!?!?)- as it is a FRIDAY STORY (and not a SUNDAY STORY as usually the TALES come only on SUNDAYS in the last three years. Blog is running in its FOURTH year and I wish this(other than Sunday story) is not a forerunner for the things to come! Yet these two TALES appeared on Saturdays and this one a day earlier on a FRIDAY!!!
Normally the Blogger makes it a point to give a longer story instead of a twelve line poem on Sundays when the viewers will be more at leisure and can comfortably read a longer write. This week it has so happened that 1250th post falls on a Friday and could not be negotiated and hence this TALE 25 comes as a FRIDAY STORY and the Sunday Story will appear on 10th June on the chosen subject!
It is extremely gratifying that with the grace of the Almighty GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY, WORD PRESS and my esteemed viewers the Blog has traveled to its 1250th post happily and uninterruptedly since its launch on 25th February 2015.
Though I have already shared a happy news about your favorite Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com getting a place in the Indian Book of Record.
It is indeed a matter of joy with a legitimate pride that the Blog entered the ASIA-PACIFIC BOOK OF RECORDS on 20th April 2018 and the Certificate issued by the GLOBAL RESEARCH AND RECORD FOUNDATION reads as under:

Many a flower blossom sans seen by any and wither
In wilderness alas!God’s wonderful creations better
To be seen and enjoyed by all for its scent and color
man must have eyes and nose-ears and tongue to spread!

Many an unknown poet and author write and write all times
Keep them unread by any! They die unwept, unsung and unhonored!
Biographers are the need of the day to bring them out to open
National Biographers Day is today-sixteenth May!

A day to admire them who teach us about the famous people
Give us an impression into their lives via the biographies.
Biographies for children is the best way to explain history
Of people and their accomplishments in life.Day to honor!

I think of those days millions of years ago sans the power of SPEECH
How communications could have taken place- body language alone -each
Individual human or animal would have its own method to convey
Thoughts and ideas! Communication should have been a fun as it looks today!

Man developed his method and languages began to flow like water falls
Seven Thousand and one hundred and more languages are there figures quite tall
Including spoken and signed languages-dialects not excluded
Great world, great people, great languages, great art of communication!

ENGLISH LANGUAGE DAY is today the twenty third of April- great language day
Most widely spoken and fastest spreading world language! It is English today
More than ninety eight crores of people speak as first and second language
Full of excellent works of literature – prose and verse-all over the world!
