August 10th-LAZY DAY!

Image result for lazy day 2019

For me I know every day of the week and month is a lazy day
After all I do nothing in any of the days!Lazy and indolent!
To most today the Tenth August is a LAZY DAY -Second Saturday.
Lazy Day  a day to chill out and be lazy for a day –  perfect chance
For a hot summer day. Laziness- indolence- disinclination to
Activity or exertion despite  ability to do so!

In the plugged-in world, we  wish for a day when we don’t do anything.
Nothing at all. Not even the tiniest bit of work. we long
For a lazy day. And yet,  we find it difficult to actually be lazy
As if we’re hardwired to do something, even if we don’t really need to.

August Tenth  is the day to be lazy or not to be lazy
It’s National Lazy Day in America,  and other places
And it’s glorious and busy! Let us see how we observe
I shall be  lazy and indolent-doing nothing and everything!!!

To err is human and to forgive is Divine rightly said
All over the world and in particular India that is Bharat,
In a way a part of our culture and tradition and today entire
World is after this noble principle and philosophy -sure!

International Forgiveness Day -is observed every  First
Sunday in August-indeed  a great gesture and to make the world
Aware of the divinity in FORGIVE AND FORGET philosophy
A noble quality to be developed foe peace and joy in the society!

It is the renunciation or cessation of resentment, indignation
Or anger as a result of a perceived offence, disagreement, or mistake,
Or ceasing to demand punishment or restitution. ‘forgiveness is ‘to grant
Free pardon and to give up all claim on account of an offence or debt’.

NATIONAL PARENTS DAY JUly 28th

Image result for National Parents Day 28th July 2019

Parents are deemed to be Gods in various countries-rightly so
India will say  treat Mother, Father, Teacher, guests as Gods in that order
“Maathru Dhevo Bhava, Pithru Dhevo Bhava, Achaarya dhevo bhava
Athithi dhevo bhava”- America observes Parents Day on the
Fourth Sunday of July every year! Mother’s Day in May
Father’s Day in June and PARENTS DAY in July-quite appropriate!

National Parents’ Day honors all parents on the fourth Sunday in July.
We can bring all our parents together and show them  all at once.
Parents play a vital role in the lives of children. From the day we are born,
Parents are our protectors, teachers, providers and role models.

As families, they are the core of our communities.  On National Parents’ Day,
We honor all parents do every day to raise up their children in a world
that is constantly changing and challenging.
Family is the microcosmic rudimentary element that
Makes up the society structure. For this structure to remain firm,
The family unit needs to create a strong foundation.

This role is shouldered by responsible parents who do understand
Their imperative role in shaping their child’s life to grow up into
A responsible Citizen. At the same time, this day impresses upon
The younger generation that One day, they must also take on the serious
Responsibility of looking after the Needs of parents and older
Family members. No need for old age homes any longer!!!

, your to-day’s post is informative, illustrative and inspiring. All are new information (to me). Once again thank you for your consistent contributions in dissemination of facts, many of which people seldom know.

11/7/2019

Sir, this is another great saint-preceptor-philosopher you have given and made your many viewers know. Thank you Sir. From your blog, I could understand that the saint was a positive philosopher served people. We are reminded Anusuyadevi, lived with our Rama Sita Devi, who had direct blessings of our Matha. She had the great honour of listening when Sita Devi described her marriage. This great privilege Anusuyadevi had, our epic Ramayana says. How great! So also Anusuyadevi of Bapatla, an holy pilgrimage place. What more can we say! We are blessed to be born in such a great land, Bharath.

Adi Shankara was a beacon light to the society, for, he extricated ignorant from the muddle during 8th century. The masterpiece to his contributions was his great exegeses to our tenets and rituals through Mimamsa. It used to be said in our tharpanas that we owe our ancestors. It is great saints like Adi Shankara, who showed the meaningful path of life to generations. Yes, generations owe him.

8/7/2019

Let us love and live in each other’s heart as long as we live. Thank you for a beautiful post.

1/7/2019

Saradha Peetam was adorned by great of great in all respects. Of them Shri Chandrasekara Bharathi, served the humanity, by mid 19th century was an incandescent figure among large number of pontiffs. A genius, even an authority in scriptures, tenets. More than a preceptor, the pontiff was also a social scientist, at a time when Mutt heads used to confine with just serving as preceptors. The Nation’s core strength is that she had great, like Chandrasekara Swamiji. We pay our homage. Thanks for giving an opportunity Sir.

26/6/2019

Yes Sir, a large number of saints, scholars, persons served and risen to aesthetic order contributed to Saivism. That include Bhakthi literature (Bhakthi ilakkiyam) which serve as inspiring treatise to the followers. I concede it is an information to me, your write up on Kashmiri Saint. We should thank for this rare but important information.

24/6/2019

Great Sir for your blog today. Mother Bharath has produced galaxy of great men to serve this great land in all spheres. Frankly, i did not know about the great who has served this great land. The concluding line is an inspiring and true statement. Yes, miracles happen in the lives of such true devotees. Again it is people are the beneficiaries out of such persons’ penance.

20/6/2019

I endorse and supplement Einsten’s: “If we don’t act or react on the matters, history will condemn us as abettors of tolerating such inhuman things! We wish and pray that this trend should end.

18/6/2019

Dear Sir, All we viewers should thank you for paying a tribute to Kakkan ji, a man, who stood as a striking example for all in public life. Unfortunately, seldom we would have come across in the contemporary persons (politicians). All that you have reminisced in today’s blog are natural things in him. No surprise to any body. Why this is mentioned to recall is to-day we have to search such persons. No doubt, in our midst also, today we have good persons, committed to the causes, sans personal considerations. To-day nation is in dire need to have such great leaders for construction and re-construction of the country in all spheres. One day, He will grant us such a situation!

17/6/2019

There is parallel to Vanchinathan’s sacrifice. In our days of freedom movement, which was surcharged by Jalianwalabagh massacre perpetrated by Dyer mercilessly, cruelly, he sacrificed his life after achieving. Nation owes him for his grit, courage, determination and a great sacrifice at the altar of motherland. Even for millennia, his sacrifice to our Mother Bharat will not be forgotten. To-day nation, with its 1.3. billiion people, pay its homage and salute the great. He joins the great patriots Lala Lajapathi Rai. Madanlal Dingra, Veer Savarkar, and many like.

15/6/2019

Read the poem of the great Crazy Mohan in Tamil n ur translation in English is great. This is the first time I come to know that Crazy is also a Devotee of Sairam n also a poet. Let him be under the Lotus feet of Sairam for ever.

11/6/2019

Yes, it is cruel on the part of a small, illiterate people criminally -by a section of people. The reasons are bigotry attitude, false economic reasons and under-estimation of women force and their contribution to the society. The is gainsaying fact that women contribute to the society and country at large more than their men-counterpart, as is evident from the contemporary history even (Madam Indiraji, for example). More than this, can we deny that daughters are more affectionate to their parents than the indifferent sons, in many a case.
In any case this should be condemned in the strongest possible terms. This should go lock-lock-barrel.

8/6/2019

The concluding line, let us green the blue” is an excellent message. The need of the hour too. Ocean occupies major portion in the world. It is a great wealth for all economic activities. For vessels transporting people and serve as a global carrier for goods. Seas have enormous wealth. It is our duty to protect, preserve and use. In our mythology, scriptures, ocean occupies respectable places. Our Yajur Veda declares saying “Samudhrame namadhu bandhu” What more can we say on the greatness of Oceans!

7/6/2019

Before admiring the important points on your post to-day, please permit me to express my view: “…let me a blogger, not a …..” I am afraid the latter is not a relevant for the very reason, your lacs of viewers read, enjoy and consume valuable everyday. What you have written is not relevant, except it suits for coining rhyme, Am I right Sir, I have taken liberty to say this due to my genuine respect and regard to you sir. Your wide knowledge acquired by your vast experiences, natural talents, command over language, knowledge in the matters particularly about the nation at large, are great asset for you, blessed by Him, and they are effectively used for lacs of viewers. I think it is a french word, a derivative.

Thus comes to an end this week’s Sunday Story and I am confident that learned Jagannathan’s feed back are always quite interesting and all my esteemed viewers would have enjoyed the same. Till we meet as usual tomorrow GOOD BYE!
