“ENVIUS” ENTERS “INDIA BOOK OF RECORDS”!


Introduction
Lord Almighty the great Creator of the Universe and humanity in all HIS compassion makes everyone to be at peace and prosperity, joy and happiness provided he loves all and serves all, helps ever and hurts never. I have the staunch conviction on this and I have all what I deserve.

ENVIUS THOUGHTS BORN

With nothing in particular in expectation I launched a blog through word press on February 28th 2015 and titled the same as ENVIUS THOUGHTS raising the curiosity of the viewers as to what is this ENVIUS probably wrongly spelt! The blog cn be accessed through https://nvsr.wordpress.com
My first post was “TRYST WITH LIC” – almost an autobiography of my official life started with my hunt, getting a job in LIC, allowing it to slip and again after a couple of years landing in LIC till I retired as a Deputy Zonal Manager on my superannuation. Since that post received tremendous response, at the instance of my journalist son from Bangalore I decided to continue.
I decided with the blessings and grace of Gods and Goddess of Learning from all over the globe to continue my Blog posting uninterruptedly as long as possible. It was also decided to post poems in English-may be original or translated from other languages by me to English-on all days from Monday to Saturday and on all Sundays a Sunday story.
By God’s immense grace I could do what I wanted to post every day without a break right from the day that I started. Today this is 1024th day and1071st post.
Viewership grew gradually and as of now overall view score is 1,20, 000 from more than 210 countries. I have hundreds of followers who look forward for my daily post.
Hundreds of comments have been received and a few are continuing to make their comments on a daily basis. My esteemed viewers are aware of my consolidation of such comments and they have been published in several parts as several Sunday stories. For every fiftieth post, I give a summary of several aspects under the title TALE OF A BLOGGER. 21 parts are over and the 22nd tale on the 1100th post is due on 14th January 2018.
Lord Krishna in Bhagawath Geetha says:
“Karmanyeva aadhikaarasthae
Maa palaeshu kadhaachana”
Action is thy duty fruit is not thy concern.
With that in mind I am
going on with my Blog work without any great expectation except the joy of observing the overall views soaring higher and higher. With every 1000 views forthcoming I share with my viewers in this manner:
“ Dear all,
ENVIUS THOUGHTS crosses 1,20,000 views
I am glad to share with you that with the 56th view at 14.45 hours today viz Saturday the 16th December 2017, total views of ENVIUS THOUGHTS crossed ONE LAKH AND TWENTY THOUSAND (1,20,000) from more than 210 countries around the world on the 1023rd day and 1070th post, thanks to your support and encouragement.

Knowledge is wealth so goes the wise saying-words of wisdom
Sources of knowledge manifold- one is through reading sure
“Tell me the book you read, I shall tell you who you are”
On the type of books one reads, we can find who he is- pure!

Books in the world though one has to read, purchasing to read
Pretty difficult indeed- Libraries give a great lead
Home or school, college or public libraries are many
For the people to make use, read and enhance knowledge!

From cradle to the grave such habits will last- to manage
The self and pave way to be great and noble–good books

Let us make our young ones to take to reading on this day
And make it a regular habit- school books apart
Additional reading is meant- here and now let us start!

CPC MEET JULY 2017

 

Young Poet S. Nivetha presenting her poem in the CPC Seminar last.

 

A very interesting observation by a great scientist reads: “Art and literature of the highest order cannot flourish in a world which is increasingly becoming mechanical and society a rocket!”.

How true it has been proved! There are no eyes to enjoy the magnificent mountains and veritable valleys, beautiful night sky and ever bright stars, fantastic fauna and fanciful flora, dancing daffodils and revealing roses! There are no ears to listen to the melodies of nature, ennobling music and roaring sound of the waves along the coast of Bay of Bengal or Atlantic Ocean! No time to enjoy the reverberating flow of Ganges waters in the Himalayas and stirring verses from the Vedas and Upanishads, Quoran and Bible!

Fast moving vehicles, fast food, fast life- every thing fast- no time to stand and stare!

Notwithstanding the above scenario, there are silver lining in the literary world where we see the poetry lovers play viewers and prose gluttons  do go in search of journals and nooks, Meets and Seminars.

Here is one lovely organization called CHENNAI POETS CIRCLE where the members meet every month to present poems, analyze and discuss, organize annual Seminars where anthology is released, poems and papers on poetry are presented.

In the last CPC  Meet held on 22nd July, I had the pleasure of participation along wit Ms. S. Nivetha, youngest poet to present her poem.

Here is a news coverage in the neighborhood newspaper ANNA NAGAR TIMES dated July 30th-August 5th 2017:

“17 year old S. nivetha, resident of 12/1045, Jeevan bima Nagar, Anna Nagar Western Extension presented her poem –‘WINGS OF FRIENDS’- at the Chennai Poets’ Circle in the Meet held on 22nd July 2017, in Defence Officers’ Colony Ekkattuththangal.

She was the youngest poet at the Meet.

Her grand father N V Subbaraman also presented his poem ‘Freedom He Resented’ at the Meet.

Nivetha is pursuing her graduate cource in Ethiraj College, Chennai. Contact number is 2654 4950.

Here is her poem:

WINGS OF FRIENDS!

We cannot gather all in one place

To have a wonderful joy and peace.

All our fast and great memories on

Like that of the nice, fast moving fan.

Miles and miles to go walking with friends

The distance of those miles never ends.

Full of pleasure in joyous wings of friends

Seen in all shapes and colors of kinds!

Love of the friend can’t be got from all

That flows through like Naigara falls.

God creates and gives us friends great sure

For us to keep all our lives quite pure!

 

Nivetha with her India Book of RECORDS for CHILDREN certificate

Here is my poem:

FREEDOM HE RESENTED!

DREADED DEATH

What is this DREADED DEATH
Knows no distinction
Young or old, poor or rich
Either sex, healthy or sick
Virtuous or vicious, dunce or diligent
Unlettered or highly literate
Dedicated Mahatma or despicable bandit
Social worker or menace to the society
All are same in the grip of death!

Death at times brings relief
Most of the times nothing but grief!

In one’s life time
That he lives is not a matter
How he lives is all that matters!

Man’s greatness is not in being
Sure one agrees that in doing!

Death can remove the physical self
Sure not his words and deeds
That indeed make him live for age!

Birth is alike getting out of sleep
Death is akin to getting into sleep
Fear not death, but boldly face!

Alive are dead; Dead are alive
All in the manner we live
And how we serve the society with love
To live in peace and amity, joy and cheers!

Poets indeed are ambassadors of peace

All of us in Chennai Poets Circle never cease

To promote peace and harmony among all

One such great who left us all was indeed tall!

 

Dr. Nithie Victor felt that his work and purpose

On earth was over and never felt nervous

Reached his heavenly abode enjoying rest

Among the members he was one of the best!

 

***HE RESENTED FREEDOM –

Freedom for each one to act his whim

Free to spit, excrete, hit or spit

To mob, disrupt, beget, beset

To beat the wife, treat her as housemaid

Or make a matchstick of her

Build where you shouldn’t, break what you shouldn’t

To dump the rubbish by another’s wall

Joy through speakers-eardrums pounded

Khaki-clad to browbeat and extract

To trade justice for filthy lucre

To promise voters, feather own nest

For caste, creed and tongue to ramp.

 

A free-for- all on city’s arteries

Where wheels and feet, cattle and hawkers

Cheek by jowl, the right of way contest

A jungle wherein might is right;

To block the road, processionists,

A striking group and irate mob or e’en

A corpse on its last journey-

Freedom’s final fling!

 

The freedom of society is dead

Long live the freedom of the individuals!

 

That is Dr. Nithie Victor-may he from his

Heavenly abode guide the Poets and this

Chennai Poets Circle!

***

This is a part of a poem that was written by Dr. Nithie Victor and published in the WORLD POETRY 1999 published by Bhishma Pithamaha Dr. Krishna Srinivas who was editing purely English Poetry monthly journal for more than 50 years and he passed away at his 92nd year almost a decade ago.

 

In deference to the desire of Sundararajan I am posting in this Forum. Thanks.

Dr. Nithie Victor  was a senior poet member in the circle for long and he is no more. Silence was observed nd later this poem was presented.

Other poets attended presented their poems absolutely great and interesting.

INDIA POETRY CIRCLE was discussed in detail and the CPC members share their poems with the IPC a more wider and vast set up.

The senior Poet Shri Jairam Seshadri proved a very pleasant host where his two pet dogs received the guests very lovingly!
