THREE D’S DAY is today the Eighteenth April-very important day
This is DEMOCRACY’S DEMAND on me DAY! Democracy’s right day to me!
My right to vote I will not let go off-but my Lord I am not in the list!!!
From  my twenty second year till this day I have not missed any
Local, State or Central -my greatest right and privilege it is!

Feeling pretty great as a part of this great Indian democracy!
Out of five  hundred and forty three constituencies all over
Eighty five in thirteen States including mine go to polls today
Including my State of Tamilnadu where I will have to!

It is  unfortunate that the voters in general are becoming
Apathetic towards elections and do not avail their democratic right
As is seen by the dwindling percentage of voting.   Young and old voters
Should do it as their  sacred duty towards our motherland !

PATRIOT DAY!

indianyouth

A special day for special thoughts, words and deeds for all to know!
Patriot Day is the third Monday of April in United States!
Better to think of much exhorted PATRIOTISM than the patriots.
Noble trait, virtue and quality sure is patriotism!

Patriotism- national pride the feeling of love, devotion
And sense of attachment to a homeland and alliance with other
Citizens with the same sentiment. can be a combination of many
Feelings – own homeland, ethnic, cultural, political aspects!

Patriotism- love for one’s native land and may be symbolism
Of culture,agriculture social bond and the soil in which born!
Patriotism induces nationalism not much different
Yet is -let us develop in our youngsters -nation will progress!

முப்பத்து மூன்றாம் ஆண்டு இது
முத்து முத்தான ஆண்டு இது!

முழுமையாக மகிழ்விருக்கும்
எழுந்து நம்மை விரையச்செய்யும்
பழுத்த கருத்துக்களைப் பரவச் செய்யும்
அழுத்தமான வாழ்வு நம்மை அலங்கரிக்கும்!

விகாரி ஆண்டு விகார எண்ணங்களை
விரட்டி அடிக்கும்!
பலகால நட்பதனை நாடச் செய்யும்
வருங்காலச் சிறப்பதனைக் கூட்டுவிக்கும்!
விகாரி ஆண்டதனைக் கை கூப்பி
வரவேற்போம்! வாய் நிறைய வாழ்த்திடுவோம்!

வண்ண வண்ணக் கோலமிட்டு
வாயிலிலே காத்திருப்போம்!
விகாரியே வருக! விருந்தாக அமைந்திடுக!

Color each other -friend or stranger, rich or poor, man or woman!

Temples and buildings carrying drums and other musical instruments,
Sing and dance, visit family, friends and foes to throw colored powders on all
Laugh and gossip, then share Holi delicacies, food and drinks.

Festival of plentiful colors-ever pleasing to the eyes!
Let us wish all a happy HOLY, HOLI, HOLI this day
Let the whole world flourish in colors all through the year!

March 19th-POULTRY DAY

National Poultry Day - March 19

Great Saint Poet, author of the Tamil magnum opus Thirukkural
Two thousand years ago appealed to the people to shun and
Give up meat eating!
Chapter Twenty Six

BYE TO MEAT EATING

1.
How can be graceful
One who takes animal’s flesh
To keep his flesh fresh!                                      (251)

2.
For the meat eaters
No grace left; wealth of no use
Who cares not but fritters!                               (252)

3.
The one who takes flesh
Sees not the grace of life great
Killer minds his knife!                               (253)

4.Non-killing is grace
Killing graceless; eating meat
Sure a sin – disgrace!                                       (254)
5.
Bye to meat! Lives saved!
Hell welcomes the meat eaters
Path to hell well laid!                                      (255)
6.
Killing life for meat
Selling flesh for money – sin
No more flesh to eat!                                       (256)
7.
Flesh – another’s sore
Realized one avoids meat
The world can’t ask for more!                           (257)
8.
Free from ignorance
Will abstain from meat eating
Meat – another’s life!                                      (258)
9.
Better than penance
Is giving up meat – a life
Killed for our pleasure!                                    (259)
10.
Who abstain from meat
The world salutes with respect
They kill not and greet!                                     (260)

Here we have NATIONAL POULTRY DAY today Nineteenth March
Eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast, an open-faced turkey avocado sandwich for lunch and then perhaps a good, ol’ fashioned fried chicken dinner to finish off the day. Poultry is the theme for March 19th as it is National Poultry Day.
Poultry refers to domestic birds that are raised for meat and eggs. These birds include chicken, turkey, ducks, geese, quail, and pheasant.  Poultry is farmed in large numbers with chickens being the most numerous.
Poultry can be prepared in many different ways including roasting, baking, frying, grilling, sautéing, steaming and roasting.

Look at these ignorant and innocent looking hen and rooster
Not knowing its fate in a minutes few at the hands of the men
Great creation of the Almighty, my great Lord Omnipotent
To be at peace and harmony with all HIS creations!

Let us try  and make efforts to follow the Tamil Poet Valluvar
And take to vegetarianism in all spirit good and valuable
And spare the valuable lives of all birds and animals
Live to the traditions of India that is Bharath our homeland!

World thrives on the sacrifices of thousands of its sons and daughters
It is for the world to remember and follow their foot steps and serve!
Sacrifices for the family, society, nation and the world
In any form or mode- sacrifices sure deserve honor quite bold!

Eighteenth March is today National Supreme Sacrifice Day
To honor those who made tremendous sacrifices for the sake
And the good of others as well as those who sacrifice their lives
Every day for us.! The men and women in uniform who have lay
Down their lives protecting their country and communities. And those
Who stepped forward during times of crisis to rescue a stranger
Or a neighbor and gave the supreme sacrifice now and then.
These sacrifices don’t come in uniform  often remain unsung.

An assassin is sung today- with a temple for him and books published
As inhumanly planned by some at the  Center! The assassinated
Getting into oblivion- a paradox we see here in our
Holy Motherland India that is Bharath! Let us arrest the trend!
