SREE SREE THAKUR’S MESSAGE

“The degeneration of humanity began at that moment when the unseen God was made infinite and, ignoring the seers, the worship of their sayings began. Oh mankind! If you desire to invoke your good, forget sectarian conflict. Be regardful to all the past prophets. Be attached to your living master or God and take only those who love Him as your own. Because all the past prophets are consummated in the divine man of the present.” Anukulchandra did not accept anyone as his disciple if he or she wanted to change his or her faith.  Anukulchandra advocated that people of all faiths could come together and strengthen communal harmony.”

Great country, great people
Noble thoughts, noble deeds
Hallowed Himalayas, reverberating rivers
Fertile fields, magnificent minerals
Fascinating forests, flora and fauna
Lovely languages, lovely people
Seers and saints, philosophers and scientists
Variety of knowledge, variety of culture
Unity in diversity all that we nurture
Love is God, Truth is God
All that we preach sure with nod
Values of life piously pursued!
Ichobad – glory going?

Old order changeth yielding place to new
New order bringeth glory in high view
Along with growth, greed and selfishness in a few
Negative values spread in all its hue!

Older people lamenting loss of values
Younger ones losing faith in moral values
Middle ones mooring neither here nor there
Ship of the Nation inching without care!

What a great people
What a great fall
Violence, betrayal, backstabbing
Jealousy, ingratitude, high cheating
Falsehood, corruption, dishonesty
Deceptions, treachery, infidelity
All that hinders Nation’s progress
All that plunders people’s wealth
All we need is a Mahatma’s lead
All we plead is noble deed
Another form of freedom struggle
To ensure peace and plenty free from peril!
Shall we get another Mahatma
To involve the intellectuals
To galvanize the society
To integrate the fractured nation
To infuse faith and confidence
To inject oneness and brotherhood
To lift us from lethargy and indifference!

Of! my beloved Mother Bharath!
Let me set my vision so high
Let my Bharath soar to sky
Let these winged words fly and fly
Till we see the Heaven so nice!

J B N TWENTY FIVE TODAY!

JBN Silver Jubilee Celebration program

One of the leading premier Public Sector Organizations of India that is Bharath our holy Motherland is LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA which was my Alma mater for more than four decades where I learnt the Art and Science of Life and Living! I make my bread and butter even today at past 78!
I have served this great Institution in different parts of the country-Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan- and as a part of our Central Office in Maharashtra.  I have travelled far and wide India for my official duties!
Corporation has developed housing in a very gigantic manner for its employees in some places and for its POLICY HOLDERS in many centers.
Housing for its policy holders is done and in many centers called JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR. In that way we have Jeevan Bima Nagars in places like Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkatta, Delhi, Chennai etc.
Since my last transfer in service in 1998 from Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh to Chennai I have been a resident of JEEVAN BIMA NAGER, CHENNAI where I own a two bedroom flat which I purchased in 1995 when I was in Salem at a total cost of Rs.5, 75,000 including registration charges. A beautiful Nagar by itself one of the biggest in Chennai 944 Flats, Community Hall, Kids World, Youth World, Women’s World etc   within a compound wall and has FIVE  gates in a vast  area under  Ambattur Municipality. –

A quarter century is gone since the colony- a mini BAARATHA NIVAS was born-citizens from North and South, East and West and center – a mini township well taken care of by the office bearers of the JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR FLAT OWNERS WELFARE ASSOCIATION – a Registered Body duly constituted and having a well drafted constitution and bye laws approved by the Government authority right from 1994. Office bearers since inception have been giving their best for the development of the colony and the welfare of the residents. In fact one can confidently say that this JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR IS A MODEL COLONY in Chennai as of now.

The following are SILVER JUBILEE YEAR OFFICE BEARERS:

President: Mr. C. Sundararajan.
Secretary: Mr. P. Boominathan
Treasurer: Mr. Radhakrishnan

Here is my Tamil poem presented on a happy occasion which talks about the greatness of this Jeevan Bima Nagar:. .

ஒற்றுமை ஓங்கவே!

ஒற்றுமை ஒற்றுமை ஒற்றுமை
வேற்றுமையிலும் ஒற்றுமை
ஓங்கவேண்டும் ஒற்றுமை
நாடும் வீடும் ஓங்கிட
வேண்டும் நாட்டில் ஒற்றுமை
வேண்டும் உலகில் ஒற்றுமை!

ஜீவன் பீமா நகரிது
பாரத விலாச நகரிது!                                 8
வடக்கும் தெற்கும்
கிழக்கும் மேற்கும்
கூடி வாழும் நகரிது!

கோலம் கூட ஒற்றுமை
காட்டிக் கொடுத்த நகரிது!
முதற் பரிசும் இரண்டாம் பரிசும்
பெற்றதந்த கோலமே!
ஜீவன் தந்த நகரிது                                   16
பீமா செய்த நகரிது  !
ஜீவன் பீமா நகரிது
நாட்டுக்கே எடுத்துக் காட்டும்
நமது வலிவு மிக்க ஒற்றுமை!

நல்ல சங்கம் நமது சங்கம்
நல்ல வழி காட்டும் சங்கம்
வாழ்க நகரம் வாழ்க சங்கம்
வாழ்க மக்கள் அனைவரும்!                           24

அமைதியும் ஒற்றுமையும்
கைகோர்த்து நடக்கட்டும்!
மகிழ்ச்சியும் மானுடமும்
பெருமையோடு பறக்கட்டும்!
நாடும் நாமும் ஒன்றெனப்
பாடுவோம் இந்நாளிலே
ஏடெடுத்து எழுதுவோம்
என்றும் நின்று நிலைக்கவே!`                              32.

சேலத்தில் இருக்கையிலே செய்தி வந்தது
சேலத்து மாம்பழமாய் இனிமை தந்தது
ஜீவன் பீமா நகர் பிறக்க வழி வகுத்தனர்
ல்லமுறையில் நாமும் வாழப் பாதை தெரிந்தது!

என்ன இந்த இடத்தில் நமது வீடா
என்ற ஐயம்  பிடுங்கித் தின்றது!
வந்து விட்டேன் ஆறு லட்ச விலைகொடுத்தே!
அந்த நாள் முதல் இந்த நாள் வரை                              40
வந்த நண்பர்கள் வளர்ந்து வந்தனர்!

நல்ல சங்கம் அமைத்து நம்மை
நன்றாய் பேணிக் காத்தனர்!
என்னவெல்லாம் செய்ய வேண்டும் என்று
எண்ணிப்பார்த்தனர் அனைவரையும் ஒன்றாக
அணைத்துச் சென்றனர்! அன்றிருந்த நிலைமைதனை
நினைத்துப் பார்க்கிறேன்!

மேடு பள்ளம் அத்தனையும் நேராக்கினர்                         48
பாடுபட்டு மரங்கள் வைத்துப் பசுமையாக்கினர்
எத்தனையோ வளர்ச்சி என்று
வியந்து நிற்கிறேன்!சிரம் தாழ்த்தி நன்றிதனை
சொல்லி மகிழ்கிறேன்! அவர்கள் பட்ட பாட்டினையே
எண்ணிப் பார்க்கிறேன்! காலை மாலை இரவு என்று
தண்ணீராய் கடமை புரிந்தனர்!காலனியை மேம்படுத்தி மகிழ்ச்சி கொண்டனர்!
என் வீட்டை நான் காப்பது எனது கடமை
என்பதனை என்றும் எண்ணி நடந்து செல்கிறேன்!
கால் நூற்றாண்டை நாமும் கடந்திருக்கிறோம்
மேலும் பல்லாண்டு காலம் மகிழ இருக்கிறோம்1

வாழ்க நகர், வாழ்க சங்கம், வாழ்க மக்கள் என்று கூறி
முரசம் கொட்டுவோம்! இதய கீதம் பாடுவோம்!                  61

News came when I was in Salem
Sweet like Salem Mango it was
Way was laid for the birth
Jeevan Bima Nagar in mirth
Road was seen for our happy life!
IS this the place where we have our house
Doubt began to nag our mind!
Came here purchasing for six lakhs!
From that day to this day
Friendship with many developed
Good association was formed and
Take care of us sound!
What all to be done
Was their constant thought
Took all of us as one together! Think I                                48
The condition that prevailed then
Ups and downs in the roads were leveled
Planting sapplings they made colony go green
So much of development delighted I am
Bowing my heads I gratefully thank them
Morn day and night- never an issue
Did their duties as the water does
Found joy and happiness at the developed Nagar
My duty it is to maintain my flat nice
Conscious I am and do take care
Quarter century we have walked together
Very many more years we are to enjoy
Hail to thee our Nagar, our Association, our people
Let us trumpet aloud and sing the song of joy!                           62

Painting of Sathya Sai Baba by Crazy Mohan

67 year old Mr Crazy Mohan, an Engineering Graduate from Guindy College of Engineering Chennai, one of the leading actors in the Tamil tinsel world was a staunch devotee of Puttaparthi Sathya Saibaba. Mr. Mohan  also a Tamil poet wrote the Tamil poem given below after Mahasamadhi of Swami.

Unfortunately Mr. Mohan, known as CRAZY MOHAN passed away on 12th inst. and as a tribute to Mr. Crazy Mohan’s  devotion to Swami, ENVIUS THOUGHTS presents today  the poems in Tamil and duly translated to English for the read and response  of our esteemed viewers.

Crazy Mohan’s poem on Swami

கெட்டபுத்தி நீக்கி, கலியில் அடியார்க்கு
இட்டபூர்த்தி செய்து இகபரத்தை – புட்டபர்த்தி
சாயி பகவான், சகஜமாய்த் தந்தவர்
போயி வருவார் புவிக்கு….(1)

சத்திய சாந்த சிவசுந் தரமாக
இத்தரை தோன்றும் இதுவுறுதி – அத்தினம்
நோயிநொடி இல்லா நிலையிங்(கு) உருவாக
சாயி பகவான் சரண்….(2)

நகரசங் கீர்த்தனையாய் நாமெல்லாம் சேர்ந்து
அகர உகர மகர – சிகரத்தை
சாயிராம் என்றுரத்துச் சொல்லிக் குரல்கொடுப்போம்
பாயுவார் மீண்டும் புவிக்கு….(3)

கரசே வகர்கள் கடைசியாய்க் காண
வருசமயம் தாராய் வரங்கள் – அரசியல்
வ்யாபா ரிகள்வந்தால் வீறுகொண்டு வானிருந்து
பாபா அரிமாவாய்ப் பாய்….(4)

அல்லாவும் ஏசுவும் கல்லாலின் ஈசனும்
பல்லா யிரக்கணக்கில் பக்தரும் – எல்லோரும்
சாயி பகவான் சமாதி அடைந்திடும்
கோயில் புகுந்தார் குனிந்து….(5)….

– கிரேசி மோகன்

 

Translation in English:

Ridding bad qualities, in this Kali age, of his devotees
Fulfilling their desires both here and hereafter – Like breeze
Puttaparthi Sai Bhagawan blessed us fine
He will be back on this Earth again (1)

Truth and peace, auspiciousness and beauty
Will fill this Earth with certainty
That day will end all illness and suffering
In Sai Bhagawan we take refuge, as offering. (2)

We get together to do nagara sankeerthanam
Reach the peaks of akaram, ukaram and makaram
Let us give a loud chorus of His divine name
And he will rush back to this Earth again (3)

When those who serve come for Darshan last
Bless them with boons, kind and fast
When political brokers stand in line
From above please roar like a lion (4)

Allah and Jesus and Easwara under the Tree
Millions of devotees – and everyone
Enter the temple with heads down
Where Bhagawan settled in Mahasamadhi (5)

Crazy Mohan

Death of the greatest among the Prime Ministers,India has seen
Let us pay homage to that great and noble soul Mother India gave birth to!

Memories of our country’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru
Come to mind on this day –his fifty fifth death anniversary.a great writer
A keen nature lover. All his life, he remained in love with the mighty
Himalayas. the Doon valley was his favourite place for a holiday pretty.

Great man born literally with a silver spoon, first disciple
Of Mahatmaji and a freedom fighter fierce, Nehruji laid a strong
Foundation for India that is Bharat-our sacred homeland,
We reverentially pay homage to that builder of Modern India!
