Fruits of many trees as food for all, let us nurture trees all our lives!

MY DEAR MAN!

Image result for Images for AGAINST FELLING TREES

Oh! My dear man, my beloved kith and kin!
You and me are created by God, the King of Kings!
To coexist, cooperate, help, live and let live.
That you are stronger than me does not give
The right and license to you and to your ilk
To annihilate me and my family who for sure
For nothing in return, provide you shade, air pure
Fruits and flowers of different tastes and hues!

We live in the lap of Mother Earth as you do
We breathe, we grow, we help, we serve sans ado
We need no shelter, but provide the same to the poor
We need no home but provide homes to million birds
We need no air from you but serve the same to mankind
We need no food from you but we give the same to you
We nurture no ill-will, nor envy your growth and joy!

In turn, on any flimsy grounds you chop our head and hands
Mercilessly annihilate us and our tribe for thy selfish reasons
Oh man! Think awhile before you take your axe!
On one side, you plant my young ones in hundreds with fanfare
On the other, kill us without rhyme or reason quite unfair.

You and I are created by God, the King of Kings!
That you are stronger gives you no right or license
To destroy our tribe for your selfish needs
None but we, condemn your ugly deeds.
Spare our lives for your healthy lives
Share our concern with your lovely friends!

To be weeded out to enjoy the world is commonly understood word weed
Unfortunate understanding as good as any other creation of God!
A weed is any plant that is not in a place where we want it to be.
Even edible, medicinal, herbal plants, and flowers, considered weeds
To those who don’t want them where they pop up beyond their actual needs~

Flowers can make their way into our vegetable garden,and we pull them out,
Common flower, vegetable or herb deemed a weed, in the cracks of side walk
When we are lost in the woods for days with no food or water. purslane,a weed
in the vegetable garden- leafy, nutritious green, edible, helps to save our life.

Weeds offer food and shelter to birds and wildlife- producing a lovely flower
Some offer medicinal value someday becomes a cure for cancer or the common cold.
Common weeds provide oxygen that we breathe taking in the carbon dioxide we exhale
Many weeds offer food and shelter for birds and animals-lovely wildlife.
Today let us hug our weeds, water our weeds, fertilize our weeds
Enjoy weeds to have a very happy Weed Appreciation Day!

Leonov-the first Space Walker!

Alexey Leonov on 1965 USSR 10 kopek stamp.

Leonov was outside the spacecraft for  twelve minutes and nine seconds
On Eighteenth March Nineteen Sixty Five- fifty three years ago
Connected to the craft by a five meter tether! Wonderful feat-
At the end,  his spacesuit inflated in the vacuum  to the point
Where he could not re-enter the airlock-. opening a valve to allow
Some of the suit’s pressure to bleed off and  got back inside the capsule.

The great Creator, Preserver and Destroyer Lord Almighty
Made the Universe-earth, sky, space and all living beings mighty
To explore the space and hills, seas and forests sky and the planets
And exploit for the world’s greater peace and joy, health and happiness!
Man in his wisdom made his body and mind, intelligence in full
Set his feet into the space and planets outside his earth
And the search goes on – with successes- set goal higher in mirth!

 

ONION IS NOT H2O!

 

 

In  my life as a Blogger since February 2015, every day making one post at least- today it is 968th day and 1035th post! I don’t believe in making a repost of what already I have posted once earlier. But today I am deviating myself from my   “ self imposed” restriction and recycling a post what I did on 15th November 2015, when the  total viewership of ENVIUS THOUGHTS  was 21000 and today it is about to cross 1,15,000 in another few hours from more than 210 countries! Here in this Sunday you find this a slightly modified version. It was ‘ONION IS NOT OXYGEN’ and today it is “ONION IS NOT H2O”!

These are the scientifically advanced days when we find ALTERNATIVES for anything and everything! Please look here:

“Oxygen is not just in the air; it’s on the shelves. It has been discovered by alternative medicine and is being sold in various forms in the health supplement marketplace. Air has to go in and out, Blood has to go round and round.  Oxygen is good. And is easily available in air!

Oxygen is required to support life; therefore more oxygen should make us healthier. It’s not clear how this relates to alternative medicine’s advice on anti-oxidants, but that’s irrelevant. OXYGEN IS GOOD, so we should put it in our soft drinks and breathe it at oxygen bars. Take an oxygen tank home with us — we might feel better. The oxygen vendor might feel better, too. Dr Andrew Weil, the renowned health guru, tells patients with chronic fatigue to ask their doctors to prescribe oxygen for a home trial. Sure, why not? The money it costs will literally vanish “into thin air,” but who cares? OXYGEN IS GOOD.

Similarly can a man live without H2O? Two units of Hydrogen and one unit of Oxygen give water! Can one live without for hours and days together?

In the days of spiraling inflation, when the cost of living soars, when the prices of milk to mango, banana to bindy (lady’s finger), carrot to capsicum, mango to melon skyrocket day by day, the middle class people are the worst hit. Governments and the party in power say they make all-out efforts to contain the prices. Economists quote several factors for price raise-very hard to understand by a common man. Rightly the Opposition parties protest government policies for the pathetic conditions of the people.

Maybe, what cannot be cured must be endured! But I use to wonder whether there is anything in the world that cannot be cured. When I was in my teens six decades ago, I was living at Karaikudi, a part of Chettinad in Tamil Nadu, where the dominant community was indeed rich, orthodox, highly philanthropic and well educated.

I used to go out with my mother to the weekly shandy (vegetable market) and distinctly remember her purchasing the weekly requirements of vegetables for a family of five for less than a rupee! The womenfolk of that dominant community of Chettinad would boycott any shop in the shandy if the cost there was a little higher than in the other shops. The way they treated the shop keeper charging a higher price was unique and the result was that the town was comparatively cheap and life was smooth. All due to the ‘will to resist’ on the part of housewives! Sixty eight years since then, when I find myself helpless managing my household expenses, I wonder whether bringing down the cost of things rests with the government alone or, as an individual, can I have any influence on the uncontrolled rising costs?

Can society play any role in holding the price hike? I would boldly declare ‘yes’, if only society really feels suffocated and would like to do something in this regard. But look at the long queue in hotels to find a seat where ‘dosa’ is sold at Rs. 70 a piece, a cup of 150 ml coffee for Rs. 40! Look at the cinemas where a new film is released with people thronging for the first show paying astronomical amounts. Despite the spiraling cost of petrol and diesel, look at the queue in petrol stations. Money is in the hands of the most and they spend as they like! Those without much, suffer.

I remember my walking without footwear to college, a distance of 8 miles one way. Today, my son wants a scooter to go to school, hardly a kilometer away. Do I ever care to go by bus instead of my two/four-wheeler?

Do I resist purchasing onion at Rs. 80 or tomato at Rs. 50 a kg? Onion is not oxygen without which I cannot breathe! Supposing people do not purchase beans at Rs. 70 a kg, how long would the shopkeeper keep the vegetable on his shelves? — right from the wholesale merchant to my street vendor? If office-goers as a class desist using their petrol/diesel vehicles and choose public conveyance, won’t petrol price come down? If we boycott the auto drivers charging an unreasonably high fare, can they continue forever by fleecing the people?

Today I went to the vegetable vendor and was shocked to be billed Rs. 150 for a kg. of ONION –Big or Small! This triggered my thoughts and the result is this SUNDAY STORY!!!!Yes, onion is not H2O! We cannot live without H2O, but we, sure, can without onion! Prices cannot go up when it begins to rot!

In the wonderful creation of the Lord Almighty
Trees and plants, weeds and bushes play a role to make mighty
The world; unfortunate that we feel the weeds are useless
Every creation of the God never purposeless!

Weeds there are among food crops as among men and women
Need to be got rid of by all means lest crops do not grow
Weeds among the humans to be removed lest society
Stands to suffer-Good weeds are there all around aplenty!

World “WEED APPRECIATION DAY “is today twenty eighth
Common weeds provide benefits many; oxygen we breathe
Offering food and shelter to birds-co creation sure
Let us hug and water our weeds, fertilize them quite pure!
