By the immense grace of the Goddess of Learning and the strength derived from the views and responses from the visitors to this Blog, today it is stepping into its third year on its 709th day and 770th post.

I am ever grateful to the encouragement provided by the increasing views the Blog has been experiencing ever since it was launched.

This indeed is an occasion to take stock of the activities and make a SWOT analysis.

STRENGTH of ENVIUS THOUGHTS is increasing number of views. Both in terms of average views per day and per post has exceeded ONE HUNDRED in fact is a great strength. In terms of days it is 110 and in terms of posts it is 105! By all means a satisfactory progress and hence it is a strength. WORDPRESS authorities provide the greatest strength.

Some of the readers like Sarva Shri OKR SIVANGANAM, Rajeev Jha, KVVS Prasad, Ramamurthi, Jagannathan, TCS Reddy, Muthu Iyer, are so regular in reading and sending their honest views of the posts and others indeed add vitamins to the Blog

ENVIUS THOUGHTS  gratefully acknowledge their responses by publishing their views periodically in the Sunday stories.

That viewers are from more than 200 countries all over the globe adds enormous strength. Plainly speaking, I cannot even name half the number of countries!

Here are some countries having registered more than 1000 views of ENVIUS THOUGHTS: (as on 22/2/17)

  1. India 18803
  2. Pakistan   8701
  3. United States   8062
  4. Myanmar   4121
  5. Iraq   3796
  6. Cambodia             2661
  7. Albania   2190
  8. Egypt 1801
  9. Bangladesh 1770

10 Philippines                    1687
11 Algeria                          1649

and 14 Vietnam                        1048

WEAKNESS of ENVIUS THOUGHTS- it is a question mark whether purists of English poetry will accept the posts of poetry from Monday to Saturday as POEM in its strictest grammatical sense. Anyhow very definition and perception go on changing! After all it is just an Indian writing English poetry!

OPPORTUNITIES for ENVIOUS THOUGHTS are in fact unlimited, very vast and wide of course. There are ever so many topics and subjects in the world that one can go on writing eternally if one can!

THREATS for ENVIUS THOUGHTS are the very age and physical condition of the Blogger. Becoming aged day after day! Mind refuses to think!  Words are in no mood to come out! Ideas simply freeze! Very often thoughts go on strike! As you sit on the computer table, eye lids automatically close and you are immediately transported to the lap of Nidhra devi- Goddess of Sleep! Imagination has practically dried out! Innovative thoughts no longer blossom!

Notwithstanding these weaknesses and threats, as I used to tell my students in those days of my service, I am making all out efforts to convert all my weaknesses into strengths and threats into opportunities!. Let us see how far I am able to pull on …… sorry no, push on!

I am indeed fortunate to have 118 followers as of now from all over the globe  and I am indeed grateful to them for the support and inspiration they provide to my ENVIUS THOUGHTS- one of the greatest STRENGTHS I have referred to above.

The following are my oldest followers from March 2015 and I am ever grateful to them.

Philosophically, on many days the opening views as I start the day at 4.30 hours will be a single digit number, which used to be as much as 50 and more a few months ago, will plunge me in sorrow and depression as Blogging has become my PASSION nowadays!?!?!? But then, reasoning will prevail and say it may be due to the change in time zones. Redeeming feature is at the end of the day it may exceed the  magical figure of 100. It only reminds me of the Gitopadesa  “ACTION IS THY DUTY AND FRUIT IS NOT THY CONCERN”. Yes that is what ENVIUS THOUGHTS has taught me in the last two years.

Most of my esteemed followers are not personally known to me! I do not know whether at any time in my life, I will be able to meet them in parson and enjoy their company. Any how I pray the Lord Almighty to bless them all with long and peaceful, pleasant and prosperous, happy and healthy life to continue viewing the ENVIUS THOUGHTS.

Requesting the word press blogging community to bless and encourage and wish the ENVIUS THOUGHTS a very great future, I take leave for the day praying for a very happy weekend for all of you!

Ring out the sixteen
In a happy and pleasant way
New experiences it gave
Giving hopes and confidence for future.

On to the New Year we have to go
Universe to grant and with the grace of God
Thousands of unfulfilled desires to see through!

The year is gone like a whiff of air
Hours and hours gone as seconds and seconds
Experiences gained worth a life!

Sixteen of two thousand let us ring out
In joy and peace abound all about
Xcellent year we have to say good bye
Things are never permanent in the world-die
Ever changing for the better or for the worse
Everywhere changing- changes wished for the better course!
New things blossoming taking the place of the old!

Await the New Year with hope and confidence
New experiences quite positive
Diamond year is bound to be the incoming.

Resolve to make the incoming year an excellent one
In the New Year let us love all serve all-their hearts to be won.
New friends, relationships- all with harmony and peace
Good and peaceful developments day after day with ease.

International peace and harmony the world needs
New Year to bring greater love and peace as feeds.

Thee, My Lord, make this year a happy year throughout
Harmony may prevail all over the world well thought-out
Eternal peace may prevail from this New Year.

Several areas need to be improved
Ever to remain in green well developed
Veterans in various fields to be recognized
Enthusiasm eternal be the gift of the New Year planned.
Never submit ourselves to injustice and jealousy.
Taking care of the have-nots and depressed be our aim piously.
Every hour and every day let us help others possible.
Every creation of God Almighty is great and has a purpose positive.
New Year may bring all peace and prosperity in the world..

‘’துன்முகி’ ஆண்டே மலர்ந்திடுவாய்

துன்பம னைத்தும் தகர்த்திடுவாய்!

வறுமை விலகச் செய்திடுவாய்

பொறுமை வளரச் செய்திடுவாய்!                (1)

May the year Dhunmuki bloom

And remove all miseries

Let poverty go away

May nice patience grow in all!                            (1)

அரசியல் ஒளிரச் செய்திடுவாய்

அநியாயம் அகன்றிடச் செய்திடுவாய்

லஞ்சம் அஞ்சிடச் செய்திடுவாய்

வஞ்சம் அனைத்தையும் அழித்திடுவாய்!          (2)

May politics become bright

All evils moving away

May corruption gets scared

May narrowness of mind be removed!                         (2)

சூதுஅனைத்தையும் பொசுக்கிடுவாய்

வாதுகள் அனைத்தையும் வதக்கிடுவாய்

தீதுசெய்வோரைத் தீர்த்திடுவாய்

பாதுகாப்பினை வழங்கிடுவாய்!                  (3)

May all petty minds get scorched

May all Evil deeds get smashed

May  evil doers get finished

May the good be well secured!                           (3)

கல்வி பெருகச் செய்திடுவாய்

நல்லோர் உயரச் செய்திடுவாய்

வல்லமை எல்லாம் வழங்கிடுவாய்

பொல்லாமை தனைப் பொசுக்கிடுவாய்!                (4)

Let knowledge grow  sky high

May  the noble men rise tall

Give strength to one and all

Let low mindedness be buried!                                      (4)

வள்ளுவம் ஓங்கச் செய்திடுவாய்

துள்ளுதமிழ் முந்திடச் செய்திடுவாய்

பள்ளிகள் பெருகச் செய்திடுவாய்

வள்ளல்கள் வலிமை வளர்த்திடுவாய்!           (5)

May Valluvam rule the world

May youthful Tamil grow further

May the schools spring up all over

Let the nobles go to strength greater!                        (5)

நல்லவர் ஆட்சியை அமைத்திடுவாய்

வஞ்சகர் ஆட்சியை விரட்டிடுவாய்

பஞ்சம் வராது காத்திடுவாய்

லஞ்சப் பேயினைத் துரத்திடுவாய்!               (6)

Let good government be formed

Worthless governance  be removed

Save the world from poverty

Corrupt society to go!                                   (6)

 

மனிதம் மலர்ந்திட அருள் தருவாய்

மானுடம் தழைத்திட வழி செய்வாய்

நாடகம் ஆடிடும் வஞ்சகரை

ஆடவிடாது அழித்திடுவாய்!                     (7)

Grace us with humanism to flourish

Humanity to prosper

Hypocrites to be shown

Their cruel, nasty  way out!                                (7)

 

 

ஆட்சியில் இருக்கும் அரக்கர்களை

அகற்றிட எமக்குத் துணை புரிவாய்

மாட்சிமை பொருந்திய மக்களையே

ஆட்சியில் அமர்த்திட அருள் புரிவாய்!           (8)

Demons in politics to go

Out of power and pelf

Nobles to take over

To yield the best to Society!                                    (8)

பணத்தால் தேர்தல் வெற்றிபெறும்

கொடுமை அழியத் துணை நிற்பாய்!

பண்பில்லாத தலைவர்களை அழித்திட

”துன்முகியே” நீ துணை செய்வாய்!          (9)

Money and muscle power

To be removed-kindly help

Uncultured in governance

Be transformed in “Dhunmuki”                                (9)

ஏழ்மை அகற்றிடத் துணை புரிவாய்

தாழ்மை தொலைத்திட பலம் தருவாய்

வாழ்வு நன்றாய் அமைந்திடவே – புது

ஆண்டே எமக்கு அருள் புரிவாய்!                     (10)

May poverty find its way out

Give us strength to get rid of

Lowliness and people to

Prosper in the year new!                                          (10)

HEARTY WELCOME TO TWENTY SIXTEEN!

 

Hearty and happy welcome to the grand new year!

Ready to serve the poor and needy all times tall,

Thanking God for all His great grace and compassion

Caring for the needy-less fortunate from start

Ever healthy and happy, peaceful and helpful!

 

Together the world to swim or sink in this year

Outstanding be the year’s outcome in all spheres.

 

Thankful to the Lord Almighty for all His grace

World to be free from all wars, struggles to face

Ever lasting peace to prevail all over the world

Never to neglect the lowly and needy bold

Two thousand and more years have gone by after Christ

Young and old, men and women –  be happy with trust!

 

Sure all to resolve to work for the society

Intellectuals  to impart values in piety.

Xcellent be the New Year in all aspects great

Thankful to God for all His love and treat!

Excitement in plenty may thrill the world this year

Ever to remain green in our minds quite clear!

New resolve for the year may be to give one’s best!
