Man – the roof and crown of God’s creation indeed is great!
Peculiarity and uniqueness a part of His creation- neat
Peculiar or unique question raised on an individual
Depending on the manner in which one behaves-practical!

January tenth to day is a peculiar day-
Unique Day too! Praising in honor of the PECULIAR S!
Peculiar People Day a day to celebrate the leaders
Of the unusual and strange, the peoples who refuse
To succumb the world idea’s which is sane and reasonable.
Challenge status quo and rebuke the concept extraordinary!

May be in their style, they simply dress or having ideas
Peculiar People’s day for Peculiar peoples to shine!
Let their be UNIQUENESS positive and noble people
And not peculiar to be laughed and joked sans scruple!

WORLD SAVINGS DAY- 31st October

Image result for Images for world savings day 2018

“Look at the ants and learn the habit of saving for the rainy day”
The nice and great advice we have been hearing since our childhood days!
Rainy days are inevitable for every one in life-old
Age bound to come and we do need wherewithal to live life of gold!

Several ways of savings-the days were there when the people of olden
Days used to keep all their savings money or gold kept in vessels and
Keep it under the grounds in the corner of their dwelling- never used
Treasures we find here and there and supposed to be given to the Government!

Savings to be done -not putting every thing on one plate- skill
Of savings to be developed through training and experience-still

Sixth sense helps a lot! October 31st today WORLD SAVING DAY

Let us start savings and teach our young ones also -to have a nice future!

PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE!

Image result for Images for peaceful co existence

Blessed with human life on this earth, we have to EXIST!

In HIS great creations there are human beings, animal beings, hills and dales, mountains and rocks, seas and rivers, tanks and lakes!

Because of religions, castes and sects a feeling has come in us that peaceful coexistence refers only to the people belonging to the different religions inside or outside their countries living and coexisting peacefully!

The following quotes will stand testimony!

Yes at a time when religions -a great unifying factor- sow the seeds of division, disharmony and distrust!

“Do not be overcome by hate. But conquer hate with love.”

 

“The pathos of the human life teaches one that idolatry of the ego is a sham. Only by living in harmonious accord with the entire world can a person distill happiness that flows from cultivating a state of mindfulness.”

“Our actions reflect the distilled wisdom that we possess of the innermost self. Our personal philosophy is an activated way of living. A peaceful person delves the truest definition of the self by maintaining an attentive state of conscious awareness and ceases escaping from reality with mindless diversions. Self-inquiry is the principal method to remove ignorance, increase self-awareness, and abide in a tranquil existence

 

“See that the most essential thing is life and that killing or oppressing one another will not solve anything.”

I firmly believe that the mission of religion in the 21st century must be to contribute concretely to the peaceful coexistence of humankind.

Daisaku Ikeda

“India is a living museum of different ethnicities and religions peacefully co-existing. This process is going on for centuries. Shia, Sunnis, Sufis, Hindus, Sikhs and others are living together,” Rouhani said.

 

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

 

Jagath Guru: “Hatred and conflict are often rooted in differences between people of different races and religions. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions. We need to unite by recognizing our common desire and need for a harmonious society — a society in which we and our children and families and friends and communities can all live our lives in peace and harmony. Regardless of our race or religion, we all want and need such social harmony.”

“Without respect for people of different races or ethnicities or religions, how can we have a peaceful and harmonious society or world? And without a harmonious society, how can there be the necessary economic development and atmosphere conducive to spiritual happiness and self-realization?”

 

Ramakrishna, a Hindu mystic: “God has made different religions to suit different aspirations, times and countries…one can reach God if one follows any of the paths with wholehearted devotion.”

 

Ancient Japanese saying: “There are many paths up the Mountain, but the view of the moon from the top is the same.”

The main purpose of this Sunday story is PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE with the other non-human beings like birds and animals, trees and plants, hills and dales, oceans and lakes!.

It is indeed sickening to see the trees being cut for selfish purposes.Trimming is OK and not cutting. When we think of global warming, we have to ensure the trees are protected at any cost.

Again the birds and animals! We have to coexist peacefully with them whatever the inconveniences to which we are put to.

One of the greatest Tamil poets Mahakavi Bharathiyar would say:

.  சின்னஞ்சிறு குருவி போலே-நீ

            திரிந்து பறந்து வா பாப்பா!

வன்னப் பறவைகளைக் கண்டு -நீ

           மனதில் மகிழ்ச்சி கொள்ளு பாப்பா!

கொத்தித்திரியுமந்தக் கோழி -அதைக் கூட்டி

          விளையாடு பாப்பா.

எத்தித் திருடு மந்தக் காக்காய்-அதற்கு

          இறக்கப் பட வேணும் பாப்பா!

பாலைப் பொழிந்து தரும் பாப்பா!-

        அந்தப் பசு மிக நல்லதடி பாப்பா!

வாலைக் குழைத்துவரும் நாய்தான்-அது

         மனிதர்க்குத் தோழனடி பாப்பா!

வண்டி இழுக்கும் நல்ல குதிரை-

        நெல்லு வயலில் உழுதுவரும் மாடு,

அண்டிப் பிழைக்கும் நம்மை ஆடு,-இவை

           ஆதரிக்க வேணுமடி பாப்பா!

In a poem addressed to the children he lists out a few of the animals and birds like sparrow, hen, crow, cow, dog, horse, goat, buffalo,  and so on and it is our duty to help, nurture, and live in peaceful coexistence with all domestic and non domestic!

Very interesting happenings are there in a big residential colony where there are about 5000 residents in about 1000 flats. Pet dogs and stray dogs are seen and the residents are unhappy with the residents feeding the stray dogs and allowing them inside the colony. They urge their Association to arrange with the Municipal authorities to catch them in their dog vans and see that the colony is rid of them. I am an early riser and take my morning walk at 3.00 am for an hour within the colony roads  and again for an hour in the evenings at 16.00 hours. There are half a dozen dogs just following me- some of them may be barking under the impression a-stranger I am why should I walk in the morning hours!!!!!

I don’t find any reason why these stray dogs are to be driven out of the colony!  We have to learn to live in PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE with this community of dogs- my creator and the creator of these dogs being the same ALMIGHTY GOD!

In a place where I was working for three years in Andhra Pradesh, for several years  there was a SNAKE Burrow, in our compound spanning dozens of acres There are about 300  employee- families residing there. . To my knowledge and information, there was no case of snake bite at any time in the past. One day on my return from my official tour, I found the burrow razed to the ground and I felt so bad and the result is the following.

                        SNAKES AND MEN

Snakes and men nature’s  creation.

Nothing created sans purpose of action

All to coexist with mutual appreciation

Alas!Many work to mutual destruction!

Survival of the fittest law of nature

Not for humans to make it a structure

To help each other and start nurture

Sure paves the path for glorious future!

Pity it is to see the stronger

Sit in judgement over the weaker

Brutal strength makes the other poorer

Keeps lives in agony or destroy altogether!

Man and serpent wonders of creation

Funny it is both in constant fears

Trying to provoke others extinction

Stronger is the man puts snakes in tears!

Lovely serpent made  molehill its home

Made its young ones sleep in foam

Taught its toddlings prey and roam

Fell the evil eyes fell on this zon!

   

Fear and panic razed the molehill to the ground

Parent snakes on return from their round

To their horror and sorrow razed home they found

And dead were their offsprings with misery around!

Living in harmony all with nature

PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE high in stature

All living and let living without torture

How to ensure for  glorious future?

So my esteemed viewers this brings us to the end of this Sunday Story. We shall meet tomorrow as usual. Till then GOODBYE!

Thank God It’s Monday Day-June 4th

Thank God It's Monday day 2018 க்கான பட முடிவு

Thank God It’s Monday Day is today the first Monday of June
Created to celebrate all the things that occur on Mondays.
Be it a new job, promotion, events, holidays, festivals
First day of the week every one begins work with a fresh start!

I felt bad about Monday start of the week ending week end
Holiday mood!- while in service going for work-may be head ache
Now leading a joyful life retired every day is Sunday
A holiday- the whole week, month and the year holidays!

In fact one has to celebrate and begin the “Thank God It’s
Monday Day” with hope, energy, and excitement to continue
It in the coming days with joy and responsibility more
All days are happy days for a positive mind very sure!

FASHION REVOLUTION DAY 24th April

Image result for fashion revolution day 24th april

White revolution, green revolution, industrial
Revolution now it is FASHION REVOLUTION real!
Fashion jewelries, fashion textiles, fashion restaurants,
Great fashion revolution takes the Society where and how?

FASHION REVOLUTION DAY is today the twenty fourth April
All over the world -the anniversary of the
Two Thousand Thirteen Rana Plaza building collapse
In Bangladesh when one thousand one hundred and thirty three
Died and over two thousand five hundred were injured!
In two thousand sixteen, came Fashion Revolution Week!

Hairstyle fashion revolution is catching up fast-unheard
In the olden days males used to sport long hairs and beard
It is back again now tuft and long beard or tonsuring strict
Ladies of all ages simply allow hair to swirl unrestricted!

Anxiety on the part of the elderly rightly is
In the name of Fashion the society goes half naked-bliss(???)
Dress changes, hair style changes, mode of living changes FASHION
My God let there be no madness for the sake of REVOLUTION!!

WALK TO WORK DAY

 

Image result for Walk to Work day 2018

In the fast changing world, where is the time to walk to work?
Work-including walk for studying-affluent we are-
Send our wards to school hundred meters away in a car
Or scooter or school van-making the boy or girl obese!

If not walking to work-school it can be cycling at least
May look ridiculous today as the days are gone and lost
When the work spot was not very very far but quite near
But today kilometers  and kilometers away-clear!

Walking to work, who does that anymore? We know with all
The rushing around we  have to do stopping alarm bell
Before crawling out of bed and  getting on time in the car
Who has time to WALK to work? Yet walking to work  sure
Helps for keeping health physical and emotional quiet pure
But that health  of the planet as a whole-let us resolve this day
To walk-make our wards walk to nearby school at least or cycle!

TRICOLOR SPEAKS!

 

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. .
