Oh! My Lord, Omniscient-Omnipotent God!
In Thy million creations “blog” gets Thy nod!
Let me be a blogger and sure not a blaggard
Pen is mightier than sword not to go wayward!

Freedom of expression never to be misused
Blogger’s honest followers not to be mislead
I write what I want and know- none to edit sure
No censor; my blogging must be noble and pure!

Matters in millions; subjects are aplenty
Great knowledge and nice language are in my kitty
To be used with sense of responsibility
Goddess of knowledge! Bless me with ability!

Bless me with that control, – thoughts not to run riots
Thoughts meant to make noble, inspire and elevate
The society of which I am part and parcel
May my Blog bring peace, joy, food for thought a morsel!

DEMOCRATIC DEMAND COMPLIED!

My esteemed viewers  would have easily guessed from the topic that this week\s Sunday Story  should be a continuation of the subject that was dealt with on 18th of this month-“THREE D’s DAY IS TODAY”!

Yes, DEMOCRACY’s DEMAND is that every eligible voter must vote whether it is local elections or for the State Legislature or our Parliament.

It is really unfortunate that we do not take it us our sacred duty and democratic right to exercise our franchise.
Otherwise how can we justify just 67% voting in Tamilnadu?
Well  many eligible voters are  refused to vote as they do not find a place in the Electoral roll- is a different tale of woe!
There are many paradoxes in the voters’attitude I could witness though I complied with the DEMOCRACY’S DEMAND!
On the one hand I see a man aged 103 voting with pride  and on the other youth not preferring to!!

103 year old Sri D. Seetharaman proudly shows his inked real finger after voting.

You find a couple at the top showing their inked fingers with pride after voting and they are in the same colony where I am.
On the other hand I came across  a few couples  having gone all the way to the correct voting booth had to return disappointed that their names are not found in the electoral roll! In those days parties as well as government will issue booth slips in advance and we used to go and vote without any hassles. This year the Government has banned the issue by the parties and in many many ares the Government has also NOT ISSUED resulting in a lot of hardships to the voters  who were desirous of voting.

My experience I shared with my whatsapp friends on return:
“Started waiting in the que first at 6.30 am and successfully voted as the nth Person in the Meenakshi Mat. School and thus discharged my democratic duty and availed my democratic right!”

My inked finger photoed by Nivetha.

Voting percentage is a poor 71% to my expectation as a pure democrat This could have been improved with greater cohessive activities by the Government such as issuing the booth slips to all the votersw in all the areas in advance, better management of booths in the sense-I had to go from one to the other as my name was not in the list maintained at the one though the board outside indicated that is where I had to vote  polling officials were better better trained and involved and so on. This is not to point out an accusing finger but earnest appeal of an interested patriotic citizen.

A good intentioned person in one of the party help desks near the voting station, asked me “whether I have voted in any of the previous elections?” I told him “yes friend I have been voting from my 22nd year of age in 1963 to this day 79th  year of age without fail  whether it is local body, state legislature or parliament “.

I do fully realize and appreciate the himalayan task involved in conducting the LOk sabha elections  in our country so vast-from East to West and North to South. But we have enormous man and machine power  to successfully accomplish this stupendous work periodically.

Today I am supposed two awards  for my supposed literary work one at Kandaswamy College , Chennai in the morning where I present my poem in கொளுத்தும் வெய்யிலில் “சில்”லென ஒரு கவியரங்கத்தில் “நீர் மோர்” -In the Evening I am getting my Bharathi Award in Triplicane after presenting my Tamil poem on Bharathiyar.

On 5th may I am supposed to get my KAPILAR AWARD after presenting my poem on the NEW WORLD in Tamil.

Well  thus we wind up our Sunday story and we shall continue our thoughts tomorrow. Till then GOOD BYE!

NATIONAL STRESS AWARENESS DAY-April 16th.

 

Image result for national stress awareness day 2019

Stress and strain part of our life-age and employment, wealth and health
Have little to impact-negative or positive, negative and positive! a paradox!
What stress can do can be experienced- more important is to be aware of stress
And the ways to be away from or not to fall a victim to stress!

Today April sixteenth is National Stress Awareness Day. The day
Designed by the Health Resource Network in nineteen ninety two to raise
Awareness of stress. Day is a chance to take a deep breath and relax.
Stress has a negative effect on the immune system -research has proved.

Chronic stress takes greater toll on our body than acute stress.
Raises blood pressure, increases the risk of heart attack and stroke,
Anxiety and depression, hastens the aging process.
Stress is one omnipresent
Easily coped sure by the competent
On the body and on the mind
On the soul and on the intellect
Age and sex, wealth and status
Stress of-course has little respect!

Faith in God, self and people
Fair to all with love and scruple
Thoughts noble and deeds worthy
Happy hobbies and habits healthy
Yoga sure a medicine for stress
Love for nature, animals and people
Through stress and strain nothing can topple!

PATRIOT DAY!

indianyouth

A special day for special thoughts, words and deeds for all to know!
Patriot Day is the third Monday of April in United States!
Better to think of much exhorted PATRIOTISM than the patriots.
Noble trait, virtue and quality sure is patriotism!

Patriotism- national pride the feeling of love, devotion
And sense of attachment to a homeland and alliance with other
Citizens with the same sentiment. can be a combination of many
Feelings – own homeland, ethnic, cultural, political aspects!

Patriotism- love for one’s native land and may be symbolism
Of culture,agriculture social bond and the soil in which born!
Patriotism induces nationalism not much different
Yet is -let us develop in our youngsters -nation will progress!

March 21st- A DIFFERENT “EARTH” HERE TODAY!

Image result for Images for ROBERT BROWNING and his GRAMMARIAN'S FUNERAL

Robert Browning who wrote GRAMMARIAN’S FUNERAL

 

Robert Browning and his Grammarian’s funeral are indeed great
“On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven, a perfect round.”
The line I like most as it has given me the vision for life.
” AIM HIGH, ACHIEVE HIGH” I used this thousands of time to motivate all!

The POET says:

That low man seeks a little thing to do,
Sees it and does it.
This high man, with a great thing to pursue,
Dies ere he knows it.

That low man goes on adding one to one,—
His hundred’s soon hit;
This high man, aiming at a million,
Misses an unit.
That has the world here—should he need the next,
Let the world mind him!
This throws himself on God, and unperplexed
Seeking shall find him.

Let us aim at a million- no matter we miss by an unit
A place in heaven is sure for me as my aim was high
ON THE EARTH THE BROKEN ARCS; IN THE HEAVEN A PERFECT ROUND
‘Aiming high and missing’ better than ‘aiming low and achieving’-joy unbound!

January 25 – National Voters Day

Image result for Images for National Voters Day 2019

To be born in a great country like India that is Bharath
One of the biggest democracies in the world is a blessing!
Democracy – of the people for the people, by the people
Has its own rights and responsibilities to be respected!

Basic responsibility is to elect a responsible
Government by exercising the right to vote in elections!
In no elections at any level vote percentage is admirable
Necessitating “National Voters Day”= a shame and pity!

Every year National Voter’s Day celebrated to encourage
Voters young and old, men and women to take part in
The political process. to mark Election Commission’s
Foundation Day. Let us be responsible voters and vote!
