PEACE NEED OF THE WORLD FOR EVER!

 

 

August 06-Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony

Propogation of peace is universal; social, religious, academic, political – all platforms are used to talk about the need for universal peace! “Peace within” and “peace without” is the refrain of all religions all over the world. Hinduism ends all its vedic verses with the words “OM Shanthi, OM Shanthi, OM Shanthi:”-that is “PEACE, PEACE, PEACE.”
There have been apostles of PEACE from time to time Jesus Christ, Goutama Budhdha, Mahaveer, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Vinoba Bhave ……………………………………………………………

While THOUGHT and TALK of PEACE go on eternally, fierce battles and wicked wars were and are witnessed in succession!
Whenever we think of the word “PEACE” automatically our mind goes to the word “WAR” and we are reminded of Leo Tolstoy’s monumental write “War and Peace” and a review reads as:
“War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy,
Tolstoy’s epic masterpiece intertwines the lives of private and public individuals during the time of the Napoleonic wars and the French invasion of Russia. The fortunes of the Rostovs and the Bolkonskys, of Pierre, Natasha, and Andrei, are intimately connected with the national history that is played out in parallel with their lives. Balls and soirees alternate with councils of war and the machinations of statesmen and generals, scenes of violent battles with everyday human passions in a work whose extraordinary imaginative power has never been surpassed.

The prodigious cast of characters seems to act and move as if connected by threads of destiny as the novel relentlessly questions ideas of free will, fate, and providence. Yet Tolstoy’s portrayal of marital relations and scenes of domesticity is as truthful and poignant as the grand themes that underlie them.”

Incidentally some more information on War and Peace:

War and Peace is a novel by the Russian author Leo Tolstoy, which is regarded as a central work of world literature and one of Tolstoy’s finest literary achievements.
The novel chronicles the history of the French invasion of Russia and the impact of the Napoleonic era on Tsarist society through the stories of five Russian aristocratic families. Portions of an earlier version, titled The Year 1805, were serialized in The Russian Messenger from 1865 to 1867. The novel was first published in its entirety in 1869.
Tolstoy said War and Peace is “not a novel, even less is it a poem, and still less a historical chronicle”. Large sections, especially the later chapters, are a philosophical discussion rather than narrative. Tolstoy also said that the best Russian literature does not conform to standards and hence hesitated to call War and Peace a novel. Instead, he regarded Anna Karenina as his first true novel. The Encyclopædia Britannica states: “It can be argued that no single English novel attains the universality of the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace”.
So much of prologue- for this Sunday story in Envius Thoughts in https://nvsr.wordpress.com is today is to think about the day HIROSHIMA PEACE MEMORIAL CEREMONY in Japan. It was on 6th August in 1945- seventy two years ago-that US dropped Atomic Bomb (little Boy) on Hiroshima.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony is an annual Japanese vigil.
Every August 6, “A-Bomb Day”, the city of Hiroshima holds the Peace Memorial Ceremony to console the victims of the atomic bombs and to pray for the realization of lasting world peace. The ceremony is held in front of the Memorial Cenotaph in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. Participants include the families of the deceased and people from all over the world. This traditional ceremony began in 1947 by the then Hiroshima Mayor Shinzo Hamai.

Normally the program of the ceremony is like this:

Satsuki Eda (President of the House of Councillors), Yōhei Kōno(President of the House of Representatives) and Yasuo Fukuda (Prime Minister) offered a silent prayer (August 6, 2008)
Dedication of Water (by the citizen representatives of Hiroshima), accompanied (since 1975) by the music “Prayer Music No. 1: Dirge” by Hibakusha composer Masaru Kawasaki
Opening
Dedication of the Register of the Names of the Fallen Atomic Bomb Victims
Address
Dedication of flowers
Silent Prayer and Peace Bell (for one minute from 8:15am)
The bell is rung by one representative of bereaved families and one representative of children
Peace Declaration (by Mayor of Hiroshima)
Release of Doves
Commitment to Peace (by Children’s representatives)
Addresses (by Prime Minister of Japan and other visitors)
Hiroshima Peace Song, with music by Minoru Yamamoto and lyrics by Yoshio Shigezono
• Closing

The day is observed in several other countries also in a way befitting the occasion.

To think of a war today in 2017, when so many countries proclainng “Nuclear power for peaceful purposese” but are in possession of nuclear weapons- covertly or overtly- none can be definite about the outcome.
The neutral nations like ours –have to play a very important role in this matter as one of the largest democracies of the world commanding respect because of our values and past history down the Father of The Nation one of the greatest apostles of peace.

In the scheme of the Omnipotent Almighty
Who created the Universe- peace and harmony
For the benefit of all living beings in the world;
Man in his need and greed resorts to violence bold!

In the name of Science and development, becomes Master
Resulting in the need for observing a day- faster:
Hiroshima peace Memorial Day is today
Let us focus and work for peace and poise ceaselessly!

NATIONAL SAFETY DAY

 

Image result for national safety day

Safety indeed is the natural instinct of all living beings
Alas!all are of course victims some time or other; we are seeing
Of accidents at home or roads, factories and offices misfortune
“Safety, Health and Environment (SHE)” movement serious brings fortune!

Many times we fall victims due to our own awful negligence
Equally horrible it is when due to our own ignorance
Young or old, man or woman, humans or animals all fall victims sure
Efforts are needed to educate and bring in awareness pure!

“National Safety Day is today” to make conscious efforts
By all to minimize accidents- if not avoid in total – to bear fruits
Let every one take the pledge:”I solemnly affirm that I Rededicate
Myself to the cause of safety, health and protection of environment”.

[Image of the Statue of Prayer in Hiroshima Peace Park]

God Almighty created the world to be at peace
And harmony.  Alas! Man in his great greed and needs
Defeat God; bring in destruction in his nasty mode
Unfortunate some justify and others oppose!

Sixth August forty five an Atomic bomb was dropped
Bringing in a holocaust grave two lakh people died
In Hiroshima and later in Nagasaki.
World war two ended but at huge cost- precious lives!

Came time to think of anti-war, anti-nuclear
Saner elements to prevail among all clear
No more wars and no more deadly weapons in the world
Pray and work to make God’s creation be happy bold!

My Lord! Thy creation – whole world is a village global
Led by Thy grace and favor- yet afflicted abnormal
With war and strife, poverty and penury, ignorance
And illiteracy, ill health and diseases-arrogance!

Terrorism and exploitation, climate change and all
Discrimination, My Lord!, taking heavy tolls quite tall.
Parenting Organization to guide, help and protect,
Member countries- one nine three- to cooperate quite strict!

Bonded labor, human trafficking, slavery to go
Global economy and world welfare smartly to grow
Peace and poise, plenty and prosperity over the world
Need of the times- to work in common cause for common good!

May the world respect its charter; follow the call quite sound,
In its seventieth year of noble service abound.
Salute the U N flag, its golden mission and vision
To make the world worth living, sitting pretty in cushion!

It is quite green in my memory the Special Quiz Program organized by All India Radio Trichy  in connection with UN Day in 1960 in which I represented Alagappa College , Karaikudi in my final year of college studies!!

QUESTION OF TOMORROW

Pokhran-II test site
Pokhran-II test site

Atlast underground nuclear test
To show India at its best
All over the world invoking protest
Our engineers and scientists better than the rest!

Scientists proud, diplomats justify
Public applaud, politicians protect
Peace loving worries, economists mystified
Philosophers perturbed, neighbours grumble!

National security paramount sure
Pride of the people fine to ensure
Ego of the engineers important indeed
Skills of the scientists progress with speed!

Nation atlast gained or lost
Neighbours’ jealousy looming large
Fear of war gripping fast
Do we need at this stage?
War the child of sickly mind
Peace the fruit of healthy brain
War and peace flow from men and their mind
War abhorred, peace nursed prosperity can’t drain!

‘Atom for peace’
Avowed goal of yesterday
Nuclear power for peace
Clarion call of today
Do we go with ease
Sure question of tomorrow!

(Written several years ago after Pokran test!)
