With a great pride and pleasure I unfurled our respectful TRI COLOR on 26th January- on the Republic Day in our wonderful colony JEEVAN Bhima Nagar, Chennai.
As I was returning home the flag called me and engaged in a conversation when it outpoured its anguish and sadness. Here is given the gist:
Flag: Oh my great friend, do you know me?
Replied I: What do you mean just an hour back it was I who unfurled you!
Flag: Yes I know and remember for ever; after all you people think of me only twice a year!
In a sullen mood I kept quite.
Flag: I know you can not answer this question! Thank God I could breathe fresh air this day. I have to get back to the cupboard and come again to breathe the fresh air only after seven months!
I responded this time: I am sorry.
Flag: I wonder how many of you atleast remember me on other days?
Again I had no answer to provide.
Flag: Do you know atleast my history?
Me: Yes, I read it my school book 65 years ago.
Flag: I never asked did you read. I only asked you whether you know!
In silence I nodded my head to communicate that I don’t.
Flag: Some one told me that you wrote about me!
Said I: Yes on 15th August 2017 I wrote about you in my blog quoting Mahakavi Bharathiyar praising you in Tamil. I gave it in English also.
Flag: When was it?
Replied I: ON 15th August last year.
Flag: I know that is why I told you that you people remember me only twice a year!!
I had no defence.
Flag: In the rest of the days do you know how many among you make use of me in a rubbish manner?
I know many wrap it on their body and other materials at home or office to protect from dust!
Flag: I am happy in some Government offices they allow fresh air to me from morn till evening every working day!
Desparately I told: “Be happy with it”!
Flag: It is not my happiness; your duty it is as per your own rules framed by great men among you.
Asked I: DUTY! In which era you are in?
Flag: Do you know I represent your culture and tradition-prosperity and sacrifice, transperancy and peace?
Said I : yes, but…………………………….
Flag: What is that but……………………..Your guilty conscience pricks you –am I right?
Said I in a guilty voice: Yes and no! I don’t know whether today I have any conscience left with me at all!
FLAG emphatically said and began to flutter in the air majestically: Time has come to think and act as a Nation lest the efforts of the great freedom fighters will go waste and you will have no redemption. .

Is it a pity no, it is an atrocity very sure
Arising out of humans’ utter selfishness simple and pure!
Vehicle population racing with human population
May be a sign of prosperity but causing deprivation!
Agricultural lands being converted into nasty flats
For the growing population depriving lands which deflate
Food and air!, on all the colonies existing expanding
For greater comforts and conveniences selfish Encroaching!
Roads and streets get shrunken thanks to encroachments unauthorized
Court orders and Government laws and rules not withstanding- disobeyed
Managed with the power of money and muscle here and there
Atrocity! But none can escape the powerful arms of God sure!
A great and efficient PROGRAMMER is HE the Lord Almighty
Well knows when I have to enter and exit this world happily
Know not with whom I entered but know well whom I leave on exit
In the span of life, develop relatives and friends sans limit!
My beloved father when he was alive till eighty seven
Used to tell as we visit him and leave quite a few days later even
“You don’t come-your leaving is indeed painful- though thoughts
Of your coming gives pleasure”! At this stage I go with him in his views!.
After a year Vision Scientist son from abroad came and went after a week
Follwing me like my shadow-morning walk, going to temple sleek
Shopping, eating, speaking, sleeping-all the while here he was
Leaving a big void on his leaving for his work and domestic duties !
To meet and be with him his brother from another station
And local one all joyfully discussing, speaking enjoying!
Silently I rejoiced and felt as though I was in heaven
Yet on his leaving………back to solitude and brooding on the days gone!
Know fully well it is inevitable and -what cannot be
Cured must be endured- but unable to be controlled by me!
Efficient Programmer is surely HE but………………………….
May God bless wherever they are is my prayer!
God, the Trinity-Creator, Protector and Destroyer
Created all the living beings to be in peace for ever!
Peace and poise, joy and happiness, plenty and prosperity
Make heaven to the individuals and the society!
Yet there comes a sad patch and happy one in turn in all our lives
Like PASSING CLOUDS that give showers of rain drops or heavy rains
Man must learn to accept good and bad, joy and sorrow equally
With poise that makes life balanced and gentle happily!
Passing clouds render good many a time for the parched land
Looking to the skies for water –most essential in the world
If they pass not and shower heavily lead to flodds and tsunami
Every thing within limit does good otherwise the opposite!

All living beings created by the Lord Almighty
Have to make their exits one day however mighty
‘Born to die and die to born ’way of the world all over
Right it is to remember the dead and gone for ever!
Practice of all religions is to remember the dead
On the day of death each year-, in India Pitru Paksha,
The Chinese Ghost Festival, the Japanese Bon Festival.
The Roman custom was that of the Lemuria.
On this day Christians all over visit Churches, cemeteries
Offer food to the departed souls- relatives, ringing bells for
The dead to comfort, sharing of soul Cakeswith the poor
Gave the dead respite from hunger, lighting candles to kindle
Light for the dead souls in the darkness! Beliefs indeed
Never to be questioned but honored and followed!
The great Creator of the Universe made all equal
And fixed faculties to be good and honest-sequel
Peace and harmony, friendship and fraternity with all
Alas! Doubting Thomases have nothing but DOUBT in all!
I believe not in my own self unfortunate-how else
I have belief in others? May be right or wrong-more
Wrong than right- all based on experiences one may say
Ultimate sufferer is the self who develops doubt on all!
Lord Almighty, my God free me from all my doubts- you are
Not excluded! Will you give me what I want or not
Is my deep doubt!I know if only it is good for me
You will! Yet I doubt-Kindly help me to come out of this web!

When a man falls in disgrace from high pedestal
We pity and say “What a fall” in contempt-total!
Our thoughts, words and deeds must hence be pure and noble
That serves the purpose of Lord’s creation-stable!
Seasons four manifestation of nature – Divine
“If winter comes can spring be far behind” Shelly’s
Powerful voice of optimism! Spring, Summer, Fall
And Winter! Seasons four- lovely and beautiful!
“FALL” is nice bringing down the leaves and flowers of Mayflower
As rain drops from the Heaven- leaves and flowers falling-from tower
Of the tree making a carpet beautiful on Mother
Earth- a sight grand one cannot get in seasons other!
