TALE OF A BLOGGER 25.

Today it is 1197th day of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and 1250th post(a land mark day in the life of the Blog) necessitating the TALE OF A BLOGGER in tune with the tradition of the Blog- A TALE FOR EVERY FIFTY POSTS as a Sunday Story!
This tale 25 is again for the third time unique (is it peculiar!?!?!?)- as it is a FRIDAY STORY (and not a SUNDAY STORY as usually the TALES come only on SUNDAYS in the last three years. Blog is running in its FOURTH year and I wish this(other than Sunday story) is not a forerunner for the things to come! Yet these two TALES appeared on Saturdays and this one a day earlier on a FRIDAY!!!
Normally the Blogger makes it a point to give a longer story instead of a twelve line poem on Sundays when the viewers will be more at leisure and can comfortably read a longer write. This week it has so happened that 1250th post falls on a Friday and could not be negotiated and hence this TALE 25 comes as a FRIDAY STORY and the Sunday Story will appear on 10th June on the chosen subject!
It is extremely gratifying that with the grace of the Almighty GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY, WORD PRESS and my esteemed viewers the Blog has traveled to its 1250th post happily and uninterruptedly since its launch on 25th February 2015.
Though I have already shared a happy news about your favorite Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com getting a place in the Indian Book of Record.

TAGORE’S GITANJALI Poem 17

 

POEM 17

          ATLAST INTO HIS HANDS!

I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands. That is why it is so late and why I have been guilty of such omissions.

They come with their laws and their codes to bind me fast; but I evade them ever, for I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands.

People blame me and call me heedless; I doubt not they are right in their blame.

The market day is over and work is all done for the busy. Those who came to call me in vain have gone back in anger. I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands.

கீதாஞ்சலி பாடல் 17

கடைசியில் அவன் கைகளிலே!

அன்பிற்காகக் காத்து நிற்கிறேன்

கடைசியில் அவன் கைகளிலே

அழகாய் என்னை அளிப்பதற்கே!

தாமதம் ஆவதும் அதனாலே

பிழையாய் iபிழையைச் சுமக்கின்றேன்!

கால்களைக் கட்டிப் போட்டிடவே

இழையாய் வந்தது சட்டமும், நியதியும்!

நானும் அவற்றை தட்டிக் கழிப்பேன்

அன்பிற்காகக் காத்து நிற்கிறேன்

கடைசியில் அவன் கைகளிலே

அழகாய் என்னை அளிப்பதற்கே!

பழியை என்மேல் சுமத்தட்டும்

அவர்கள் மேலும் தவறில்லை!

அந்தி நேரம் மலர்ந்ததுவே

அனைவரின் வேலை முடிந்ததுவே

என்னைத்தேடி வந்தவர்கள்

திரும்பிச் சென்றனர் கோபமுடன்!

அன்பிற்காகக் காத்து நிற்பேன்

கடைசியில் அவன் கைகளிலே

அழகாய் என்னை அளிப்பதற்கே!

ENGLISH LANGUAGE DAY 23rd April.

Image result for Images for ENGLISH LANGUAGE DAY 2018

I think of those days millions of years ago sans the power of SPEECH
How communications could have taken place- body language alone -each
Individual human or animal would have its own method to convey
Thoughts and ideas! Communication should have been a fun as it looks today!

Man developed his method and languages began to flow like water falls
Seven Thousand and one hundred and more languages are there figures quite tall
Including spoken and signed languages-dialects not excluded
Great world, great people, great languages, great art of communication!

ENGLISH LANGUAGE DAY is today the twenty third of April- great language day
Most widely spoken and fastest spreading world language! It is English today
More than ninety eight crores of people speak as first and second language
Full of excellent works of literature – prose and verse-all over the world!

TALE OF A BLOGGER 24!

 

Today it is 1149th day of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and 1200th post necessitating the TALE OF A BLOGGER in tune with the tradition of the Blog!
This tale 24 is again for the second time unique (is it peculiar!?!?!?)- as it is a SATURDAY STORY and not a SUNDAY STORY as usually the TALES come only on SUNDAYS in the last three years. Blog has entered into the FOURTH year and I wish this is not a forerunner for the things to come! Yet these two TALES appear on Saturdays!!!
Normally the Blogger makes it a point to give a longer story instead of a twelve line poem on Sundays when the viewers will be more at leisure and can comfortably read a longer write. This week it has so happened that 1200th post also falls on a Saturday as the 1150th did and could not be negotiated and hence this TALE 24 comes as a SATURDAY STORY and the Sunday Story will appear on 22nd April on the chosen subject!
It is extremely gratifying that with the grace of the Almighty GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY, WORD PRESS and my esteemed viewers the Blog has travelled to its 1200th post happily and uninterruptedly since its launch on 25th February 2015.
As is the practice we shall look into the progress of overall views of Envius Thoughts since the last Tale 23 on 3rd March 2018:

In this way number of views is strongly progressing giving a sense of achievement. I take pride and pleasure to communicate the crossing of every 1000 views to all my well wishers through all possible manner- WhatsApp, Facebook two Accounts, Bloggers’ Meet-Up, gmail and so on!
I am often reminded of a quote that I read about 57 years ago,, while I was a student of Alagappa College, Karaikudi: “Art and Literature of the highest order cannot flourish in a world that is increasingly becoming mechanical and the society a rocket”! Yes in these fast food days where and how does one find time for literary activities!
Yet there are several groups devoted to foster literature of different genres. Envius Thoughts has already carried Sunday Stories on CHENNAI POETS CIRCLE, VIJAYAWADA poets group and so on. There is a nice group= of course a little sophisticated and dwell in the higher ranges of POETRY World-the group known s INDIA POETRY CIRCLE from Chennai. They innovate activities among the members and go ahead in great way.”CONFLUENCE “ in one such activity a nice anthology! In writing poem one poet will contribute one line each! First line from the first poet, 2nd from the next, 3rd from the third and so on!
They meet every month and present their poems and discussions ensue! A great experience indeed!
The IPC has members from different parts of our Motherland -East and West, North and South!
One of the members is a retired Professor of English from Kerala who became a little close to me and our esteemed viewers will find her thoughts on Envius Thoughts as Sunday Story tomorrow! Tale of the Blogger has yielded place to a new Poet in the blog! I am sure the story will be enjoyable!


During the Tale period, a new anthology was brought out with the name and title “METVERSE MUSE GOLDEN JUBILEE ISSUE” from Vishakapatnam beautifully and scholarly edited by a veteran Poet and Editor DR. H. TULSI a detailed review of this work was published in this Blog on 18th March. (can be viewed from the archives of March 2018).
Opportunities are provided by the Lord almighty in any form and in many forms!
One such came to me a couple of days back. A poem was written by an young girl suffering from terminal cancer nd the hospital authorities from abroad have sent it all over the globe and I have sent the same to about 300 friends of mine-poet and non poet friends by mail. I reproduce the same with a request “LET US HELP”.
Slow Dance
This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer.
She wants to see how many
people get her poem.

It is quite a poem, please pass it on.
This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a
New York Hospital.
It was sent by a medical doctor Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.

SLOW DANCE
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last..

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift….
Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

FORWARDED E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL COUNT.

Dear All:
PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know –
even to those you don’t know!
It is the request of a special girl, who will soon leave this world
due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to
live their life to the fullest, since she never will.
She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school,
or get married and have a family of her own.

By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a
little hope, because with every name
that this is sent to, the American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name
to her treatment and recovery
plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6.

It’s not even your money, just your time! Pls read n forward … !!

My esteemed viewers are the first to be shared with of the news of your favorite  Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is getting into the ASIA PACIFIC RECORD BOOK- promotion from national level -INDIA BOOK OF RECORDS!-

So we end this TALE 24- a Saturday Story with a resolve “LET US HELP”. Thanks . Tomorrow a regular SUNDAY STORY THOUGHTS on THOUGHTS will greet you early in the morning!.

Tagore’s Gitanjali Poem 15

 

In English

               COMMAND ME MY MASTER!   

I am here to sing thee songs. In this hall of thine I have a corner seat.

In thy world I have no work to do, my useless life can only break out in tunes without a purpose.

When thy hour strikes for thy silent worship at the dark temple of midnight, command me, my master, to stand before thee to sing.

When in the morning air the golden harp is tuned, honour me, commanding my presence.

As seen by me:

The purpose of giving human life is to ensure every one does his/her duty faultless. One of the duties is to offer prayer to the Almighty, sing in praise of HIM. When he commands us to do certain things, we have to bide by, and carry out his commands unmindful of time and strain and carry out our duties and lead our lives noble.

In Tamil 

கீதாஞ்சலியின் 15ஆம் பாடல்

             தலைவா எனக்கு ஆணையிடு!           

 

உனக்காக கீதம் இசைக்க வந்துள்ளேன்;

இந்த அரங்கின் மூலையில்

எனக்கும் ஓர் இருக்கை.

நீபடைத்த இவ்வுலகில்

       எந்த வேலையும் எனக்கில்லை

எனது பயனற்ற வாழ்க்கையிலும் என்

உபயோகமற்ற கீதத்தில்

உயர்வு பயக்கும் என்பேன் நான்!

 

அந்த நள்ளிரவு நேரத்தில்,

கும்மிருட்டுக் கோவிலில்

அமைதியான அக்கணத்தில்

உன்னைப் பிரார்த்திக்கும் காலத்தில

உன் எதிரில் கீதம் இசைக்க

தலைவா! எனக்கு ஆணையிடு.

மெல்லிய காற்று வீசுகையில்

இளங்காலை நேரத்தில்

உந்தன் அருகே நிற்பதற்கு,

உன்அருளை அடைதற்கு

தலைவா! எனக்கு ஆணையிடு!

 

மனித வாழ்க்கையை இறைவன் கொடுத்தது அவர் அவர் கடமைகளை பழுதறச் செய்வதற்கே.  கடமைகளுள் ஒன்று இறைவனைத் துதித்தல் , அவன் புகழ் பாடுதல். அப்பொழுது அவன் இடும் ஆணைகளை மனத்தில் ஏற்று அவற்றிற்கு கட்டுப் பட்டு, காலம் நேரம் பார்க்காது  கடமையை ஆற்றி, வாழ்க்கையைச் சீரிய முறையில் நடத்த வேண்டும்.
