Shri N. Jaganathan who is in charge of PR and Publicity wing of my beloved organization SEVALAYA (seen above) about which I have posted a poem on 3rd August 2016 and a Sunday story under the title TEMPLE OF SERVICE (SEVALAYA) on 7th August 2016 in this Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS.
Mr. Jagannathan has become so fond of ENVIUS THOUGHTS that he not only regularly views them but also makes his comments often. I am sure they are quite interesting and hence they form this week’s SUNDAY story; I am confident that you will enjoy them.
Part IV was posted on 5th August 2018. Here is Part V for the delightful reading of my esteemed readers.
Yes, the doctrine ‘Vasudeva Kutumbakam’ was founded and practised by our culture. Our country has given this value to the entire world! We will continue to nourish, come what may, regardless of narrow considerations of some segment of people amongst us.
Yes, camera is only an irreplaceable also an indispensable one in the world of communication and its industry at large. It a great gift of Science given by Eastman!
Thank you Sir, for mentioning Sevalaya in the context of advising people having surplus over their requirements. Yes, I have seen in many families, for generations, that a portion or a certain fixed percentage of their income to go to charities, It is even today practiced and followed. You have rightly mentioned Gandhiji’s view on this. Which human aspect remain untouched by Gandhiji. As Indians it is our pride to have born in Gandhi’s land.
I take a legitimate right to express, he it is not only your LIC Colleague’s liked lines and words on your various posts. His views represent majority of viewers’. The reason is simple. All have come out with conviction that is common in all. Kudos to Mr. Venkata Krishna. Thanks.
We Indians are very much eligible to celebrate ‘siblings day’, for the very reason, Institution of family is very well regarded. Siblings are part of the family. More than that it is India gives the world the concept of “Vasudeva Kutumbakam” – “universal brotherhood” . (when we say this, it does not mean other parts of the world lack this sentiment, they may have different philosophies).
Oh! Great! How beautifully you have glorified men engaged in such a novel soothsaying method! It is unfortunate that this is seen or observed for amusement. They are not recognised, nor appreciated. At least, on seeing your today’s post, people should watch with seriousness and even contribute.
Sir, to-day’s post is timely. People hold diametrically opposite views on vital matters concerning on the return to organic farming. But it is an undeniable fact that the nutrient character of the precious soil suffers once and for all by the extensive use of synthetic pesticides, genetically engineered seeds, among other reasons. In any case it is not without challenge, to mention a few, cost factor, shortage of seeds, lack of understanding and awareness among farmers. In the midst of all these, awareness on this on the increase in the country, particularly in the Agri-hubs of Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, the states blessed with perennial river water sources. Let us be optimistic. I recall, Nehruji gave a clarion call for “Grow more food campaign” which happened to be a core reason for our to-day’s achieving self-sufficiency. We can’t forget the days of famine!
Oh! bunch of information on Penguin. Many of them, many, may not know. Thanks a lot for your today’s informative post.
Yes it has been our custom in our hoary culture, to perform Celestial Weddings. It is in our great faith and a matter of extreme delight. This apart, many among in our midst legitimately believe that if Their wedding is performed, the impediments of performing marriage to the children will be removed, I was told by a genius-discourser. This was the answer given by persons asking why so much celestial weddings are performed everyday. Anusuyadevi heard describing the wedding of Sitamahalakshmi, by herself. This is also interpreted as Thirukkalyanam. How blessed Anusuyadevi.
May I supplement what I remember to have read some decades back? Sir Walter Scott, in his famous poem (a sonnet) “Patriotism” chides, rebukes by saying those do not have the sense of pride of his own land, will go unnoticed to the vile of dust unwept, unhonoured and unsung, however he possessed limitless wealth, power and pelf. Our Bharathi had triggered patriotic spirit in his great poems. Every citizen of every land should learn this and have uncompromising patriotism to his own land.
Oh, what a great achievement! What to say, several factors would have contributed to this. Your half-century plus experiences, your non stop reading, your serving in a leading public sector undertaking, your friendly viewers across globe and others, and above all Her unlimited grace, among other attributes. You have been contributing every day on valuable topics, many are new to the intended viewers, with a sense of seriousness and missionary zeal. I am afraid, I am less competent to praise you, I concede. I am only a beneficiary. To sum up, I repeat, contents are big and so the container and vice versa. Looking forward to your valuable postings!
A new and useful one to-day. Humours apart, it is necessary all should choose to walk in every opportunity, and benefit. Abundant availability of facilities has made man lazy at the cost of his own health soundness. Your ‘confession’ that you also provided transports to your children, lest they undergo physical strain, – is an interesting ‘confession’. Besides exclusive walking as a habit in the morning hours, everyone should walk, try public transports and save money and protect health, I think. Though I also err on this, I follow this procedure whenever possible (subject to time constraint).
Dear Sir, With my poor knowledge and vocabulary, I was under the impression that the meaning for ‘goof’ is fool or foolish. But your today’s blog interprets differently. On the one hand I should thank you and request you on the other hand whether my understanding is right or needs to be changed. My acknowledgement/reaction today is different than the rest Sir.
Holy festival bears several significance. It is a harbinger of beginning of Spring, destruction of evil for ever, i.e. celebration of victory over evil demons, and many more. It has cultural significance too. In western parts of India, on the streets, young boys and girls make human pyramids to reach a pot on the high place and “steal”. This is to reminiscent krishna’s playful deeds and to say if Krishna steals butter, it wipes out human sins. This was the mythological significance of ‘butter stealing’. All these are demonstrated on this day, in western parts of India. I think this is what I have heard.
Oh! this is a converse one to yesterday’s. This is more convincing in terms of the contents. But eerything is due to His grace.
Dear Sir, Satyamoorthy was a great patriot, writer, orator par excellent. Kamaraj and all the national leaders had very high respects for his contributions in the freedom struggle. I had occasion to associate with his daughter Lakshmi Krishnamoorthy, who was also a good orator and patriot. When I used to visit her and her husband (Indian Express), she used to narrate and recall Satyamoorthy’s remarkable talents, memory, and unparalleled public speaking, which was essential during freedom struggle. He was fondly called by his admirers “Silver-tongued-Satyamoorthy”
Sir, it is altogether a new subject you have chosen today. In my understanding, ‘multiple personality’ and split personality are synonyms. While psychiatrists analyse the cause, many have opined that it is attributed to Childhood trauma, one underwent. Often symptoms used to be such persons may have inflated ego in everything to the detriment of cordial association with others.
This much is for this Sunday Story. We shall continue as usual tomorrow. Till then GOOD BYE!
