August nineteenth –tomorrow is a great day-quite significant
“World Humanitarian Day” observed all over the globe
For all of us to think, to pen and spread, make the world with patience
To respect all beings-God’s creation with clear conscience!
Men and women are created by God the Almighty
To live and lead a life normal with kith and kin rightly;
But there are the beloved of God who work for the world
Sacrificing all in challenging situations bold!
Brazilian Sergio Vieira de Mello was one of age
Whose thinking, philosophy, dynamism and courage
Inspired all and timeless legacy for all to emulate.
Rightly United Nations dedicated this day to that great!
UN LOGO FOR THE DAY.
In the great creation of the Lord Almighty
Are the people all over the world quite mighty!
Spread over and spreading over each and all parts
Making their living useful to them and others smart!
Indigenous people moved and settled far off
Totally identifying with locals and serving
With all their best for mutual benefits giving
And taking culture of theirs to the land anew!
“International Day of the World’s Indigenous
Peoples” is today – to recognize the achievements
And contributions they make to improve world issues
Such as environmental protection-great salutes!
Friend in need is a friend indeed – a saying goes
Your friends will see you in your prosperity
You will see your friend in your adversity
Understanding each other is indeed friendship
Friendship is not mere smile on face
Friendship is the smiling heart’s embrace!
Friendship hastens help in mishaps
Like hands picking up the dress that slips!
Not to laugh is friendship made
But to hit when faults exceed!
International Friendship Day is sixth August
Let us promote in a manner quite august!
To punish is human to forgive is Divine
To forget is human to forgive is Divine
To say yes to punishment is human unfair
To say no to punishment is Divine –quite fair!
Forgiveness is giving up resentment and anger
Forgiving is granting free pardon to the wrong doer!
August sixth –first Sunday of each august August
International Forgiveness day is robust!
“Love all and serve all” paves path for forgiveness pure
“Help ever, hurt never” spreads red carpet quite sure
Let us take to the path Divine, forget and forgive
Lord Almighty in all HIS compassion, takes to Heaven!
Wages one gets for his sins is death- said Lord Christ
Those who believe not may ask ‘don’t the non sinners die’?
Others are wondering what constitutes sin at best
It all depends on the perception of men –answers lie!
In the creation of the God Almighty- my lord
All His creations are to live in peace –never sounds odd.
Love all, serve all- help ever hurt never- golden path
All have to take and serve the Lord – from Him no wrath!
Tiny creation is the nice ants – red in color pure
Mostly they cause no harm to humans very sure
They go in a beautiful line one after the other
A nice sight- but I am tempted to crush them together!
Am I a sinner? Unable to decide- a shame
I see a snake going on its own way afraid of me
I kill it with a stone and stick-am I a sinner?
A dog afraid of me barks in a corner- I
Drive it away under fear- am I a sinner?
Tell me what is sin and am I a sinner?
Kerala born little girl named Anna chosen by Jesus
To carry HIS sufferings right from her childhood precious!
She became Saint Alphonso -lived hardly years thirty five
A symbol of carrying the sufferings of her supposed spouse.
She wrote in her spiritual diary:
“I do not wish to act or speak according to my inclinations.
Every time I fail, I will do penance…
I want to be careful never to reject anyone.
I will only speak sweet words to others.
I want to control my eyes with rigour.
I will ask pardon of the Lord for every little failure
And I will atone for it through penance.
No matter what my sufferings may be, I will never complain
And if I have to undergo any humiliation,
I will seek refuge in the Sacred Heart of Jesus”.
Yes, she is in the Sacred Heart of Jesus blessing all
An Indian born great Saint- taking care of all standing tall
Today is HER feast day- let us take care of the poor and feed
Show our concern for the world on this holy day- a great need!
Dr. Abdul kalam with his aide Srijan Pal Sing on the last day of his life-27/7/2015.
Strange coincidence though it was two great leaders died
Twenty Seventh day of a month- May Nehruji entered
And July Doctor Kalam reached heavenly abodes
Two of the tallest leaders served the holy land!
A lover of Karnatic music Kalam was loved
My Tamil translation of Thyagayya’s gems five proud
Listened personally sung by great artists at night
Ten at Madurai at the artists’ humble homes- a delight!
A noble first citizen of Bharath – our homeland
Moved so freely with all in simple style- made wonderland
Lives ever in the minds of all- on this sad day
We pay our respects to him in all humility.
In this regard kindly read the connected posts to Dr. Abdul Kalam viz
