4th July-U S INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Fourth of July fireworks behind the Washington Monument, 1986.jpg

Creator-the Lord Almighty created the whole world to be free
And enjoy freedom and peace, joy and plenty live with independence!
But alas greedy political leaders of various countries
Bring under their control countries small and big to serve under!

Fortunately people are freedom minded and fight for independence!
India that is Bharath fought for freedom from the British for long
Under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi and got independence !
Fourth of July today -the great Independence Day of
The United States of America- observed in a fitting manner!

United States commemorate the Declaration of Independence
Of the United States, on July Fourth  Seventeen Seventy Six..
The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies
No longer  subordinate to the monarch of Britain, King George THREE
And were now united, free, and independent states.
The Congress  voted to declare independence two days earlier,
On July second, but  was  declared on this day in Seventeen Seventy Six! This second post is at the instance of my VISION SCIENTIST  son presently at U S.

June 5th-WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY.

World Environment Day 2019: Date, Theme, Slogans, History, and ...

In the wonderful creation of God vital
Is environment to promote health pivotal!
Words of wisdom from Mahatma Gandhi“Earth provides
Enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not greed”!

Out of that GREED and SELFISHNESS, to own and enjoy
Dwelling places for the humans, we destroy the
Forests and fields= beautiful houses and flats come in
Nature’s environmental beauty  gone for ever!

“What we are doing to the forests of the world
Is but a reflection of what we do well or bad
To ourselves and to one another”- Let us keep
Environment neat and safe for the world to flourish!

Very important is protecting trees aplenty
Planting trees here and there everywhere to get air
Fresh oxygen driving away carbon-di – oxide
For protecting our health and sick -less life!

World Environment Day is today the fifth June
To those enthusiasts a sacred day a boon
To raise the awareness of the environment
And issues connected all over permanent!

Let the world create strict discipline law needed
To ensure environmental protection -required
Any one found doing harm to environment
Is dealt with firmly with sufficient punishment!

It is heartening that our schools do have a subject called EVS
Environmental Science! Let it not be  for the exams and marks only
Let it be ingrained in the minds of the young students that remains
In their minds and make them ENVIRONMENT CONSCIOUS all their lives!

Esteemed viewers of ENVIUS THOUGHTS, I am sure would have made out why and how this week’s Sunday story!!!!!!!!!!!
The above is a chat with one of my closest co residents of my great mini ‘Baratha Vilasam colony’ Jeevan Bima Nagar, promoted by Life Insurance Corporation of India, my Alma master- with 944 flats for the policyholders of LIC, of whom I am also one notwithstanding the fact that I have served for more than four decades this mammoth Organization in Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamilnadu etc.! Mr. Suresh Mathew my close friend has gone to US on an official work and caught up there thanks to ALL POWERFUL CORONA!

There are so many “isms” in the world and one is GANDHISM and one who follows Gandhism in thoughts, words and deeds honestly and faithfully can be deemed to be a Gandhian! Let us go a little deeper to find an answer to the question that the TITLE OF THE SUN DAY STORY poses!

Gandhism is a body of ideas that describes the inspiration, vision, and the life work of Mohandas Gandhi. It is particularly associated with his contributions to the idea of nonviolent resistance, sometimes also called civil resistance. The two pillars of Gandhism are truth and non-violence.
The term “Gandhism” also encompasses what Gandhi’s ideas, words, and actions mean to people around the world and how they used them for guidance in building their own future. Gandhism also permeates into the realm of the individual human being, non-political and non-social. A Gandhian can mean either an individual who follows, or a specific philosophy which is attributed to, Gandhism.
However, Gandhi did not approve of the term ‘Gandhism’. As he explained:

“There is no such thing as “Gandhism” and I do not want to leave any sect after me. I do not claim to have originated any new principle or doctrine. I have simply tried in my own way to apply the eternal truths to our daily life and problems…The opinions I have formed and the conclusions I have arrived at are not final. I may change them tomorrow. I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills.”

In the absence of a “Gandhism” approved by Gandhi himself, there is a school of thought that one has to derive what Gandhism stands for, from his life and works. One such deduction is a philosophy based on “truth” and “non-violence” in the following sense. First, we should acknowledge and accept the truth that people are different at all levels (“truth”). Second, that one should never resort to violence to settle inherent differences between human beings at any level: from between two people to two nations to two races or two religions (“non-violence”).
Simplicity in life and living and nobility in thoughts, words and deeds are sin qua non.
Khadhi dress –kadhar- is just a symbol and wearing kadhar dress alone cannot be deemed to be simple and Gandhian! From this standard there are thousands and thousands of Gandhians in India and in that case India should be the NOBLEST NATION in the world!
Gandhiji’s autobiography “MY EXPEREIMENTS WITH TRUTH “ is indeed  a great epic!
Here are his views on his cherished principles of TRUTH and NON-VIOLENCE:
TRUTH AND NONVIOLENCE are  the two key ingredients of Gandhian thought. It is not possible to pursue one without the other.  .Word “truth” denotes the “right” thing to do in a morally charged situation. Mahatma Gandhi was fond of quoting the following statement from Confucius: “To know what is right and not to do it is cowardice.”
It may be possible to pursue both truth without regard to nonviolence, and nonviolence without regard to truth.  The pursuit of truth on its own makes us self-righteous. Similarly, nonviolence pursued on its own, uncoupled with truth, could simply be used as a cover to countenance passivity, even cowardice, and degenerate into a form of self-indulgence – just as truth on its own could degenerate into a form of self-righteousness.
If the two-truth and ahimsa-are to be pursued simultaneously, then the question  arises- what is the relationship between the two? The following passage from the writings of Mahatma Gandhi offers a clue to his position on the matter:
It is perhaps clear from the foregoing, that without ahimsa it is not possible to seek and find Truth. Ahimsa and Truth are so intertwined that it is practically impossible to disentangle and separate them. They are like the two sides of a coin, or rather of a smooth unstamped metallic are like the two sides of a coin, or rather of a smooth unstamped metallic disc. Who can say, which is the obverse, and which is the reverse? Nevertheless ahimsa is the means; Truth is the end.  When once we have grasped this point, final victory is beyond question. Whatever difficulties we encounter, whatever apparent reverses we sustain, we may not give up the quest for Truth which alone is, being God Himself (M. K. Gandhi, Hindu Dharma (Ahmedabad : Thus for Mahatma Gandhi nonviolence is the means, and truth, or God, is the end.

This relationship of the two is also capable of being looked at in new light from within an essentially Gandhian framework.

. It seems, however, that there are good reasons for arguing, from a Gandhian perspective, that such a proclamation should be nonviolent. Mahatma Gandhi insisted that human beings are necessarily an imperfect channel for the respective of God’s revelation. This fact means that they could go wrong in some way in speaking for God. So if in disseminating God’s message they turned out to be wrong but proclaimed it in a nonviolent way, then they would have caused minimum harm. And if they turn out to be right – then all power to them.
Is this the reason why crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus in Christianity are companion events?.

This apart,
I distinctly remember on the assassination day of Gandhiji, at age 7, I was  having fever and I refused to take porridge and slept weeping.
My conviction on truth and non- violence NIL? If someone takes a staff and asks me the question, if I say yes, and is likely to beat me I shall say NO NO NO!

That type of Gandhian I am!

It is unfortunate that the present Center proposes to build a temple for that criminal Godse and publish his books. What a shame!
Secularism-yes I subscribe. ISHVAR ALLAH THAERAE NAM SABKO SANMATHI DHE BHAGWAN- Ragupathi Raghava Raja Ram was Gandhiji’s pet song.   I also love it.

I go to temple, stand for a minute in front of any mosque, or Church when I pass through by walk. And think when I cross by other modes. To some extent I don’t indulge in uttering lies with knowledge.

To conclude the Sunday Story –“EMPHATIC NO “ is THE answer to Mr Eapen of US and my dear friend Suresh Mathew at the moment caught up in US!

We shall meet as usual tomorrow and till then BYE!

April 2nd- Lord Rama’s Day

Lord Rama (श्रीराम)

Among the world religions, Hinduism is great
Aiming at world harmony and peace, indeed a treat!
God, Lord Almighty, Creator of the Universe
Religion makes them descend to the earth in forms diverse!

Second April today is the birth day of Lord Rama pet God
Of our Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi died saying RAM RAM
Though died  out of a gun of a terrorist- most pathetic.

In human form to demonstrate what DIVINITY is
Born in Chaitra Navami as Dasaratha’s son!

Part of human life- Rama’s life taught the humans strong
Success ultimate for the nobles in thoughts, words and deeds

Obedience to parents’ commands, sincerity
Devotion, dedication to cause, and loyalty,
Forgiveness, sacrifice- all divine virtues for sure
Humans can imbibe with devotion to Rama pure!

Rama Moola Mantra

2. Rama Taraka Mantra

श्री राम जय राम जय जय राम॥
Shri Rama Jaya Rama Jaya Jaya Rama॥

In Taraka Mantra,

  • Shri stands for Shakti or Goddess Sita.

  • Jaya means victory to the spirit over the flesh.

Thus, the entire meaning of the mantra is a victory to God with His Shakti.

3. Rama Gayatri Mantra

ॐ दाशरथये विद्महे सीतावल्लभाय धीमहि, तन्नो राम प्रचोदयात्॥
Om Dasharathaye Vidmahe Sitavallabhaya Dhimahi,

Shri Rama Jaya Rama Kodanda Rama॥

March 23,: Bhagat Singh’s Martyrdom Day

Bhagat Singh 1929.jpg

Path to Indian freedom was quite long, painful and tedious
Leaders and workers in thousands sacrificed  their all in their lives
Many were not there to see the Nation becoming independent
We enjoy freedom at their cost not repaying our debt of gratitude !

One of the many revolutionary workers fighting for freedom
Was Shaheed Bhagat Singh -executed this day twenty third March
In Nineteen Thirty One. Born in nineteen hundred and seven
Sacrificed his life before twenty five years of age!

Socialist revolutionary whose two acts of dramatic violence
Against the British in India and execution at age twenty three
Made him a folk hero of the Indian independence movement
One was fatally shooting down a twenty one year Police Officer.
In December Nineteen Twenty Eight- John Saunders, in Lahore.
Singh was convicted and hanged in  when he was just twenty three.

Shaheed Bhagat Singh became a popular folk hero after his death.
Jawaharlal Nehru wrote that Singh  became popular because
He vindicated the honour of Lala Lajpat Rai and  the nation.
Let us pay our respect to that great nationalist on this holy day.
