March 19th-POULTRY DAY

National Poultry Day - March 19

Great Saint Poet, author of the Tamil magnum opus Thirukkural
Two thousand years ago appealed to the people to shun and
Give up meat eating!
Chapter Twenty Six

BYE TO MEAT EATING

1.
How can be graceful
One who takes animal’s flesh
To keep his flesh fresh!                                      (251)

2.
For the meat eaters
No grace left; wealth of no use
Who cares not but fritters!                               (252)

3.
The one who takes flesh
Sees not the grace of life great
Killer minds his knife!                               (253)

4.Non-killing is grace
Killing graceless; eating meat
Sure a sin – disgrace!                                       (254)
5.
Bye to meat! Lives saved!
Hell welcomes the meat eaters
Path to hell well laid!                                      (255)
6.
Killing life for meat
Selling flesh for money – sin
No more flesh to eat!                                       (256)
7.
Flesh – another’s sore
Realized one avoids meat
The world can’t ask for more!                           (257)
8.
Free from ignorance
Will abstain from meat eating
Meat – another’s life!                                      (258)
9.
Better than penance
Is giving up meat – a life
Killed for our pleasure!                                    (259)
10.
Who abstain from meat
The world salutes with respect
They kill not and greet!                                     (260)

Here we have NATIONAL POULTRY DAY today Nineteenth March
Eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast, an open-faced turkey avocado sandwich for lunch and then perhaps a good, ol’ fashioned fried chicken dinner to finish off the day. Poultry is the theme for March 19th as it is National Poultry Day.
Poultry refers to domestic birds that are raised for meat and eggs. These birds include chicken, turkey, ducks, geese, quail, and pheasant.  Poultry is farmed in large numbers with chickens being the most numerous.
Poultry can be prepared in many different ways including roasting, baking, frying, grilling, sautéing, steaming and roasting.

Look at these ignorant and innocent looking hen and rooster
Not knowing its fate in a minutes few at the hands of the men
Great creation of the Almighty, my great Lord Omnipotent
To be at peace and harmony with all HIS creations!

Let us try  and make efforts to follow the Tamil Poet Valluvar
And take to vegetarianism in all spirit good and valuable
And spare the valuable lives of all birds and animals
Live to the traditions of India that is Bharath our homeland!

Family cooking a vegetarian meal.

The world knows well the PLEA FOR VEGETARIANISM
Advocated by Mahatma Gandhi as an expression
Of compassion and love for animals-yet another
Creation of the Lord almighty!- The Omnipotent!

Compassion Towards Animals-noble mission
Of veganism- refrain from using anything made
From animals- meat, eggs, milk, and honey avoid products
That use animal labor! What a great mission vegans have!

November first World Vegan Day is today-no animal
Racing or fighting be allowed! Non-violence, compassion
Towards all of nature’s creatures- heart of their philosophy.
All such activities are exploitative and cruel
Vegans, feel it is an issue of ethics and health.
Plant-Based Diet-advocated and practiced-
Their diet high in fiber and low in cholesterol reduce risk of
Heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.!

In the wonderful creation of God wildlife an important limb
Humans and animals, plants and trees all integral limbs of body

Holiest day in a year is tomorrow-GANDHI JAYANTHI DAY
Great Father of our sacred Motherland- India that is Bharath-Way
Ahead of many world countries in aspects several thanks to his vision
Whose unceasing efforts and unparalleled leadership guided with a mission!

The whole nation owes for eternity its gratitude and respect great.
Unfortunate that the murderer of that great soul is sought to be honored
With statues and books on the wretched; no redemption for the ungrateful;
On this day sacred and holy, let us resolve to uphold Gandhism-be redeemed!

Truth and non-violence when adopted as solution for all evils
Peace and harmony will rule the Society and throw away all ills.
Sure not theoretical or bookish but was demonstrated by him
Hail that great Mahatma- revered by the world around, our minds trim!
