Absolute need for maintaining a standard is there- for all to follow
Standard should be high, noble, causing harm to none and yielding  great!

World Standards Day is today  the Fourteenth  October. to honours
The efforts of the thousands of experts who develop voluntary standards
Within standards to raise awareness among regulators, industry and consumers
As to the importance of standardization to the global economy.

THe day was  chosen to mark the date, in Nineteen Forty Six
When delegates from Twenty Five countries met in London and
Decided to create an international organization focused on standardization.
Let us fix moral, ethical, personal, societal -and follow with determination.

ENVIRONMENT-CLEAR AND CLEAN? Part 1

Image result for environmental protection

Man  the roof and crown of Creation endowed with  all faculties intact
I fail to appreciate the environmental issues around me
And bother not to make my environment clean and clear –pity
It is not only in my own interest but I owe it to Society!

We are surrounded by many different things on this planet Earth.
Most of the time, we take them for granted. Our surroundings, be it
Living or nonliving, the geographical area where we live constitute Our ENVIRONMENT which needs to be protected by all means.

Let us give thought to the after effects that will plague for not
Addressing the environmental issues on time. Let us analyze
In brief the various environmental issues that  plague our  world
And their harmful effects  on all the living beings-very crucial.

When Mahatma Gandhi emphasized on cleanliness, it was protection
Of ENVIRONMENT for healthy living in the society-in perfection
Harmful effect of ignoring Environment is to our own peril
Let us see more and more on this in the days to come in serial!

 

Grow more trees.

Man bound by his routine day in and day out needs relaxation
Means not spending all one’s time in front of the idiot box
Can be a morning and evening walk, visiting a park and garden
Reading a book of ones choice and like, listening to music sweet!

Taking a tour with kith and kin sure is a relaxation-for all
Twenty Seventh September  today is World Tourism Day to relax
Started by the United Nations World Tourism Organization
In Nineteen Eighty. was selected as on this day the laws
Came into force in nineteen seventy- the big landmark for
The global tourism to bring in awareness in people about
The significant role of tourism inside the international
Community and to exhibit how the social, economic, cultural,
Political values are influenced globally. Let us all take to
Tourism within our capacity and get relaxed for a few days!

GLOBAL FORGIVENESS DAY August 27th.

 

 

“Forget and forgive” is the normal advice we come across in the society!
I have heard people say “I will forgive but not forget” that is not to my like!!
“To forget is human but to forgive is divine” yet another statement we
Come across! appears normal human behavior acceptable all over!

August twenty seventh today GLOBAL FORGIVENESS DAY!observed great!
The Forgiveness Day conceived by the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance educational Foundation. The days have one significant theme and aim to uphold: forgive.No new theme every year, since the objective  clear!

Spiritual traditions,human values embrace the concept of forgiveness
As a trait of virtue. Let us think about how many times our parents
Forgave us, throughout the time we grew up? All our mistakes did
Not stop them from showering all their love. Making mistakes are
A part of our human journey, while forgiveness allows the growing
Process to continue lovingly. Let us forgive and be forgiven.

Yes to FORGET IS HUMAN, FORGIVE IS DIVINE!

Nice to have brought out the patriotism held dearly by Nethaji and his own way which was completely at variance with Gandhiji’s in the freedom movement against the British, despite the goal remaining the same, namely independence for our Motherland!

Wish we had such leaders in our midst remaining as entities with excusive general welfare of people behind every one of their actions!

Now we need to charge ourselves with sentiments that drove the freedom struggle in a spirited way to help enable the flow of benefits of political freedom as anticipated by the freedom fighters!

19/08/19-2

A nice concept that doesn’t sacrifice quality, though there’s an offer in place to sell products at a subsidised value on this day in USA!

We in India too have such attractive offers from the businesses frequently, but most of the time we feel we had been cheated after finding out the discrepancy between what we were delivered and what we were promised!

The purpose of this day is thus defeated by the traders’ casual approach, with the buyers losing the value for their money in the process!

Long live our hard-won freedom, with us justifying it through exhibition of our concern for the nation in every step we make in our journey aimed at overall development!

19/08/19 3

We’re overburdened with stress due to routine interaction with people on a daily basis, and unless we are relieved from their clutch, we are bound to make our lives miserable and unworthy of living!A nice post to read!

Either we have to get rid of the monotony by ourselves voluntarily taking breaks in between by diversion through engagement with activities different from the routine, or to take a route via listening to jokes cracked by our well wishers and strangers too!

After all, everyone of us is after happiness, and so we should judiciously  make use of the opportunities coming our way to make our life enjoyable!

A feast to the stomach-full!

How true it’s to call poetry the language of the soul – the soul reflecting exactly what is inside of it for the readers and listeners to sit on the table and savour to their heart’s content – it cannot therefore be bad!

Madras Nalla Madras – nicely written by you and Nivetha!

Chennaites would never enjoy places other than Madras – it’s too enticing to escape their presence there – for, east or west, home’s best!

Poetry by a group of participating poets including yourself – a compound and mixture – a recipe qualifying as a mixture and compound catering to the taste buds of all!

The subject matter of a poetry – uniqueness is its essence – makes the poem beautiful, with them wearing the garb of proper texture and scintillating hues that cannot go attracted by the lovers of poetry!

Long live the poets to come out with their souls finding a sure expression through their imaginative powers in full action!

06/08/19

Nice to read the above post!

We are a secular nation, and co-existence of people with perfect harmony despite prevalence of different faiths is made possible!

The saints and seers coming of different religions propagate right messages to the people, and make them realize the futility of violence as a method to achieve their selfish ends!

If the rulers singularly concentrate on efforts to bring in a society free of turbulence in their daily lives, the economic development of our motherland is sure to follow!

This is what the priority should be before the saints in the larger interest of the masses!

Nice post on Forgiveness Day!

Forgetfulness and Forgiveness are necessary virtues we should imbibe to keep the relationships moving in the right direction!

Overloading us with remnants of past that might have soured our feelings will take away the sheen of life!

Two tools in our armory that readily fight the consequences of the dreaded brooding we are used to!

Zero tolerance is what often an enemy within us posing as a challenge to our thriving cordial relationships!

The one and the only panacea is our readiness to adopt forgetfulness and forgiveness as a way of life!

It’s very nice of Mr. Venkata Krishna to have liked your daily posts, and come up with a selected portion thereon on a daily basis!

Congrats to him!

02/08/19

A nice post in the series, ‘saints and seers!’

Their mission is simply great and laudable!

Removed far from the material aspects of life, their purpose is centred around spiritualism, and they go all out and see how best they can guide the masses on righteous path!

Gita is a striking example to show how man should approach everyday life , and Dayanand Saraswati’s usual discourse would have been beneficial to the devotees who heard him regularly!

01/08/19

A nice read!

An adventurous feat many would like to try and succeed!

As is found in the post, will power plays a dominant role in completing the task successfully!

Aside from it, an overwhelming interest in climbing to reach the peak adds determination to the act!

An abode of saints and seers from where they practice simplified living and penance to drive home their messages to the people who are on the road to spiritual development!

Living and life around mountains is an experience sought to be achieved in the midst of nature!

1/07/10

Thank you very much for the above post as this week’s Sunday Story!

Turning back, I find, I’ve come a long way!

Also I’m aware, I’ve miles to go before I sleep, and I’m sure I’ll!

31/07/19 2

A good read!

When we think of trees, what instantly comes to our mind is the tangible benefits we get from them!

Intangible ones are invaluable, and they provide solutions to what we are confronted with, namely the most generalised GLOBAL WARMING posing as a challenge of gigantic proportions!

Erratic climate is a global phenomenon attracting environmentalists and nature lovers across the world nations to assemble frequently to talk of the permanent remedies to tide over this phase gradually but steadily!

It’s the common man’s problem affecting their everyday life in many ways than one – ever keeping their fingers crossed, baffling the mankind just as one groping in the dark to locate something non-existent!

It seems so, but wisdom within us will straight away tick the correct answer, one that drives us to plant as much trees as possible, and to nourish and nurture them as if our babies that require motherly care and attention!

30/07/19

The title of your post today led me to guess it must be the day you were born – and it’s rightly so!

No one can believe what you are saying about yourself that you are a burden to this earth- you’ve achieved a lot and nothing stands against you in achieving more in future!

Your potential is great, and you’re characteristic of bringing it to the fore without losing any portion of it!

May the Almighty be with you in translating your passion for writing into  many more ‘creations’ for your followers to view, read, and enjoy!

29/07/19

Nice to go through your series on saints and seers, including one on the above!

This takes me back to my childhood days when in the month of Margazhi every year there was virtual ‘competition’ between the likes of me in carrying the portrait of Andal followed by the procession of bhajan performers made along the circuitous main road in my native village in Coimbatore district!

“Aham brammasmi” is a vedic truth believed by all Hindus all over the world
Yes basically all human beings are divine beings! Example the child!
Today August twenty second is BE AN ANGEL DAY” to bring an awareness
Of this in all and make the society sacred and noble for peace and harmony

In many religions, angels are supernatural spirits that are thought to be
Responsible for protecting humans.The day reminds us that even though we
Can’t be actual angels, we can emulate the kindness they are known for.
Being kind and good to our fellow human beings is not hard or difficult.

All we need to do is to stop thinking about ourselves and think about
How we can make the world a nicer and kinder place and act in that spirit
Showing love and affection to all those whom we come across at least on this day
Let us enjoy the day in a manner befitting ! God shows compassion for all!

Yes indeed she was an angel till 20th August 2014- my beloved better half Smt. Renuka, daughter of an Advocate and a double graduate by education,
mother of three lovely boys.God’s ways are inscrutable and she reached HIS feet
Five years ago on TWENTIETH AUGUST TWO THOUSAND FOURTEEN. She loved all , served all; she helped all and ever and hurt none -never! Highly devoted house wife was she and ardent follower of Aurobindo and Mother, Parthi Baba. She was friendly with everyone she came across-may be Udumalpet, Coimbatore, Ooty, Thanjavur, Bikaner, Madurai, Salem, Kadapa or Chennai! Yes I had 12 transfers during my forty years service in the premier public sector organization-LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA-my Alma mater where I learnt the Art and Science of LIFE AND LIVING! She ungrudgingly  accepted all places and all people- kind and compassionate to all-young and old, educated and uneducated, known and unknown, sick and the healthy..
