PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE!

PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE!

Yes this is  this week’s Sunday story ( 2103rd post) on PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE with  tne various creations of the Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent Lord Almighty.  This was prompted by one Sri Sriram of our colony Jivan Bima Nagar promoted by the Life Insurance Corporation of India which I served for more than four decades where I learnt the art and science of life and living!
Mr. Sriram is a regular viewer of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and makes a review of his own motivating to write more and more!
This world is a WORLD OF PETS!
Our children are of most precious PETS!!!!! The world takes the meaning  of pets only to refer to a pet, or companion animal, is an animal kept primarily for a person’s company or entertainment rather than as a working animal, livestock or a laboratory animal. Popular pets are often considered to have attractive appearances, intelligence and relatable personalities, but some pets may be taken in on an altruistic basis (such as a stray animal) and accepted by the owner regardless of these characteristics.

Two of the most popular pets are dogs and cats; the technical term for a cat lover is an ailurophile and a dog lover a cynophile. Other animals commonly kept include: rabbits; ferrets; pigs; rodents, such as gerbils, hamsters, chinchillas, rats, mice, and guinea pigs; avian pets, such as parrots, passerines and fowls; reptile pets, such as turtles, alligators, crocodiles, lizards, and snakes; aquatic pets, such as fish, freshwater and saltwater snails, amphibians like frogs and salamanders; and arthropod pets, such as tarantulas and hermit crabs. Small pets may be grouped together as pocket pets, while the equine and bovine group include the largest companion animals.

Pets provide their owners (or “guardians”) both physical and emotional benefits. Walking a dog can provide both the human and the dog with exercise, fresh air and social interaction. Pets can give companionship to people who are living alone or elderly adults who do not have adequate social interaction with other people. There is a medically approved class of therapy animals, mostly dogs or cats, that are brought to visit confined humans, such as children in hospitals or elders in nursing homes. Pet therapy utilizes trained animals and handlers to achieve specific physical, social, cognitive or emotional goals with patients.

People most commonly get pets for companionship, to protect a home or property or because of the perceived beauty or attractiveness of the animals. A 1994 Canadian study found that the most common reasons for not owning a pet were lack of ability to care for the pet when traveling (34.6%), lack of time (28.6%) and lack of suitable housing (28.3%), with dislike of pets being less common (19.6%). Some scholars, ethicists and animal rights organizations have raised concerns over keeping pets because of the lack of autonomy and the objectification of non-human animals.
Leaving this at this stage, in our colony there are a good number of stray dogs besides those that are maintained as pets by cynophiles!
These stray dogs are of course fed by kind hearted residents here and there and they sleep on the road corners, bark as they like, move from a place to another at a few meters away as if they have very important job there!
I am an early morning walker – as early as 3 to 4 in the morning within my colony! These dogs in the earlier days used to bark at me as I step out of my Block and in course of time they realized that I am a regular fellow and they not only stopped barking at me but also walking with me as if to guard me!
One of my hobbies is to sit at my balcony for a few hours and observe the movement of dogs chasing and barking and flying of crows cawing!) !
Unable to tolerate their barks in the nights, disturbing their sleep, they organized with Chennai Corporation dog vans to visit our colony and take away as many dogs away ! Here is a small description I made in the Whats App group of our 1000 flats strong and 4000 residents strong JIVAN BIMA COLONY which is well maintained and taken care of by the JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR FLAT OWNERS WELFARE ASSOCIATION (JBNFOWA).

DOG MENACE IN JBNAGAR

Lot of discussion is on on the above subject. Yes it is unfortunate and a sort of nuisance. Our efforts to remove them with the help of Corporation and their DOG VAN are of not much avail. God has created them with great acumen and the moment they smell the van, they are not to be found anywhere!!!!

Probably PEACEFUL COEXISTANCE is only the way out.

Yes those who own or love dogs can observe certain regulations and restrictions so that others are not put to any inconveniences or discomfort. When I go for  my vry early morning walk, one or two bark at me and one or two keep guard of me and come for a walk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pet dogs are well taken care of by their owners and stray only to be controlled. After all DOGS are BAIRAVA SWAMI according to Hindu thought! Those who feed them can choose a closed place and dogs know when and where and they manage their feeding! Barking is their habit and who can help! They bark only when they see a stranger DOG or Man, whether DAY or NIGHT, FIRST GATE or FIFTH GATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let us practice to have a PEACEFUL CO EXISTENCE with yet another wonderful creation of the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent!

This is the response of our senior member and leading Advocate Mr. C. Vijayakumar who is a lover of dogs: Love for pets & domestic animals are very fundamental for human survival. It is the duty of civic authorities/ Central, State Govts. to take all scientific measures to control the birth of stray animals and take them to shelters. It is the duty of owners of pets to maintain them and see that the environment is not spoiled.

 

 

I have seen a number of houses where pets like cats, dogs,  parrots, sparrows, cows and calves (not for milk vending) and so on are kept simply for  the sake of pleasure! Still delightful are those who keep SNAKE as pets. They are not snake charmers yet they keep!

Here is  my close poet friend- organizer of IPC -India Poetry Circle in Chennai -Mr. Jayaram Seshadri with his pet dog at home-beautiful is the dog.

POETS' PET! – Envius Thoughts

A couple of days back I saw a beautiful dog and they have named it as DIRT and when asked, I was told that it was  taken from a dirty place when it was just a few days old!!! Now it can be displayed in a DOG SHOW- it looks so pretty!

DIRT  1 of Block 9 JBN

DIRT gives another pose!!!

I have seen monkey as the pet of many!

PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE is needed today in the world with all pets and non- pet  birds and animals and thus maintain that peace and harmony with all creations of the Almighty!

Thus comes to an end this Sunday Story and we shall meet as usual tomorrow. Till then bye!

First time owners: dogs or cats?

Friendly cat and dog our normal pets!

Here is something on DOG from my friend GERMAIN from abroad:

 

Dog

Suddenly, so spoiled, caressed,
well cared for
with vaccines administered.

At the slightest symptom,
I’m being taken for a consultation.
The pampering yet increases
the pitiful voices
seeking my comfort
and exquisite care.

I have no other choice
but to show joy,
happy and grateful,
canine loyalty.

When I was a poor pup,
I begged in the streets
seeking for scraps.

Perro // De pronto tan mimado, acariciado, /con la salud cuidada, /con las vacunas puestas. // Al síntoma menor / me llevan a consulta, / los mimos acrecientan, / las voces lastimeras / buscando mi consuelo / y un cuidado exquisito. // No tengo otro remedio / que mostrar alegría, / contento agradecido, / fidelidad perruna. // Cuando era un niño pobre /
mendigaba en las calles / buscando mi comida.

நாய்

திடீரென, கெடுக்கப்பட்டு, அணைக்கப்பட்டு

பத்திரமாகக் காப்பாற்றப்பட்டு

அம்மைப்பால் மருந்து தரப்பட்டது

சிறு நோய்க்குறி தெரிந்த உடனே

என்னை அறிவுரையாளனாக ஏற்று.

அதிக சலுகை மேலும் அதிகரிக்கிறது!

பரிதாபத்திற்குரிய குரல்கள்

என்னுடைய ஆறுதலையும்

அருமையான கவனிப்பையும் கேட்கிறது.

எனது மகிழ்வையும், இன்பத்தையும், நன்றியையும்

நாய்மேல் வைத்த பற்றையும் காட்டுவதைத்தவிற

எனக்கு வேறு வழியில்லை!

நான் ஒரு சிறு நாய்க்குட்டியாக

நான் தெருக்களில்  பிச்சை எடுத்தேன்

மிச்சம் மீதியை வேண்டி!

JUNE 21st- WORLD FATHERS’ DAY!

Yes this week\s Sunday Story (2029th post) is on WORLD FATHERS DAY! ENVIUS THOUGHTS carried a Sunday story on Mothers Day on 16th May  last month which was received overwhelmingly by our esteemed viewers and a few also suggested a post on FATHERS DAY and the effect is today’s Sunday story on FATHERS DAY!

MOTHER IS GOD!
India –sacred land worships one’s mother as
FIRST GOD! They say MATHA, PITHA, GURU, DHEYVAM-First in the priority for respect and reverence, love and affection is MOTHER followed by FATHER, third GURU (Teacher) and FINALLY DHEIVAM that is GOD! Probably because of this we call our country as MOTHER INDIA!
Today Twenty First June being FATHERS DAY, it is apt to have this week’s Sunday Story on that head. 2029th post on the 1973rd day of the Blog!
Fathers  Day is a day for many people to show their appreciation towards fathers and father figures worldwide.Events and observations associated with this day is to show our respect and love for father by presenting some gifts- what he likes most if the individual is fortunate enough to have.

Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide to recognize the contribution that fathers and father figures make to the lives of their children. This day celebrates fatherhood and male parenting. Although it is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide, many countries observe this day on the third Sunday in June.

Father’s Day 2020: The third Sunday of June is celebrated as Father’s Day in most parts of the world. Father’s Day is a celebration of fathers, honoring fatherhood, paternal bonds and the role fathers play in society.

 

Father’s day was first proposed in 1909 to complement Mother’s Day celebrations.

The third Sunday of June is celebrated as Father’s Day in most parts of the world. Father’s Day is a celebration of fathers, honoring fatherhood, paternal bonds and the role fathers play in society. This day was first proposed in 1909 to complement Mother’s Day celebrations.

Significance

On this day children acknowledge and appreciate their fathers and father figures, who play an important role in their lives, be it emotionally, mentally or even financially. On this day children understand the importance of the role of a father in one’s life. This day acknowledges the contribution of fathers to their own families and society at large. Children buy or make presents for their father or father-like figure, write and draw cards, spend the day engaging in activities that can be enjoyed with one’s father, be it hiking, fishing or just sitting around watching some television. In India especially, most kids have a closer bond with their mothers, so this day definitely helps forge a closer relation with one’s dad.

While India follows the US, and celebrates Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June every year, in other countries including Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Italy, Father’s Day is celebrated on March 19. And even though this is a Western tradition started in the United States of America, it has gained a lot of prominence in India in the past many years.

History

The day was founded in USA, where it is celebrated on the third Sunday of June, at the Spokane, Washington YMCA in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd. That year, Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910. Sonora heard about how Anna Jarvis had founded Mother’s Day in honor of her mother and told the pastor of her Church that there should be something similar to celebrate fathers too. Sonora’s father was Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, a single parent from Arkansas who raised six children. Sonora was hoping that Father’s Day celebrations would be held on June 5, which was her father’s birthday, but the Church’s time constraints ended up pushing this day and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June.

My father – one of the most loved and respected teachers/Headmasters who died at the age of 87 in the year 1987 served lived in Karaikudi and spent his retired life in Thanjavur. Highly principled and what he preached, he practiced. He brought up his three sons including me in a way that stand up in good stead even today when I have just stepped into my EIGHTY! Whether it is taking walks in the very early mornings and evenings or visiting temples every day twice, reading, writing, loving all and helping all and hurting none and so on, I am regularly following the guidelines given by my beloved father till his death.

 

 

Father's Day

Fathers’ Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.

In the hierarchy of Indian persons to be
Revered and respected “FATHER” stands next to the
MOTHER and before TEACHER and God! Great indeed is he
“Fathers’ day” observed all over the world on twenty first June right!

In the creation of God and the noble thoughts of the
Human beings-father and fatherhood have a special
Place of honor-the role he plays sacrificing his self
For his family-kith and kin-  great and noble self!

On this sacred day, let all pray, revere and respect
Godly fathers-responsible for what they expect
For their welfare- joy and peace, health and happiness ever
In their old age, take care-keeping them in old age home never!

I am happy that this day gave me a nice opportunity to think of my beloved father. I do hope that  post-Sunday story would have been of  interest to all our valuable viewers. We shal meet as usual on Monday and till then Bye!

International Picnic Day- June 18th

Now picnic to your heart's content at India Gate - The Hindu

For many indeed PICNIC is a luxury! Money apart time?
Time permitting nothing can be more joyful than a picnic
To a nearby spot with children enjoying the day with play
And food of different varieties prepared by beloved mother!

Selecting a day with nice climate neither very hot nor cold,
Spot with trees lovely, plants and flowers in full swing
A veritable day to spend with the beloveds free from home !
Joining children in their play, fun and frolic a joy by itself.

Sitting in a circle under the green wood tree, flowing  mild breeze
Enjoying the music of birds sitting on the tree, flying around
Birds of different feathers, and colors and voices quite pleasant
Forgetting the responsibilities of office or business
Nothing can provide greater joy and pleasure for the family.
Lakh of money and materials cannot be equal to a day’s picnic!

Simple Food - International Picnic Day - Simple Life Management

God created man to love and serve
Love and serve all with strong nerve and verve
Expect not anything in return
Worry not over the strain that turn
Falter not over the goal you set
Tinker not with the grand steps you plan
Treat success and failure on even plane!

Success and failure sure part of our life
Success after failure sweeter still
Lessons you learn taller than a hill!

God’s creations our great kith and kin
Deserve well to be cared, loved and served
Served to love and serve millions in turn
Drop of noble act in the sea of life!

PUNISH THE ABUSER!

Animal abuse                                                                   Child abuse

Use, abuse, mis use, disuse -all the humans and animals do
Child abuse, animal abuse engage the attention of some
One or the other in the society! People crying sharp and loud
Against the child ABUSER we come across day in and day out!

Including PETA- People for Ethical Treatment of Animals
Are not as vociferous, lo, as those against Child Abusers
No age or sex is observed in those who abuse children cruel
Worse still is animal abuse- poor creations of the Almighty!

Animal abuse is as cruel as child abuse deserving
Punishment equal- as both are innocent-fail in understanding
Unable to express what they want to- inscrutable are God’s
Creation-Let us bring sense in those who abuse children and animals!
