SUN -the great giver of light and life- to be revered and thanked
Today is the day Pongal -Sankaranthy day rightly earmarked
By one of the oldest religions of the world-Hinduism
A festive day for prayer, feasting and socializing!

Pongal a delicious preparation with rice, ghee and sugar candy
Offered to Sun God with sugarcane- result of HIS grace to all
Socialization with warm visits to kith and kin and greet
“HAPPY PONGAL”-poor and rich, old and young, men and women all!

Personally the day marks the start of fifty ninth year
As a teetotaler- at the instance of Kanchi Maha Swami
As a final year Degree student of Alagappa College,
Karaikudi-not tempted to even in Ooty or minus temperature places! –

World Food Day is today the sixteenth October all over
Day marks the significance of agriculture to emphasize
That the food produced and consumed by us is safe and healthy.
This food day celebrated with great enthusiasm in India!

Several lovers of food in Delhi joined hands and vowed
To keep their food hygienic and safe opposing Genetically
Modified crops as it is unhealthy causing hazards rightly
Natural food indeed – fresh vegetables-probably unfried!

People in Delhi celebrate the occasion at Craft museum
Of Dastakar Mela; they make rangoli and perform street plays
And acts on the matter of genetic modification- its effects.
Several non-voluntary organizations highlight importance
Of eating healthy food and avoiding fast food in urban
India. Volunteers also stage street plays to focus!
Ours a vast country with diverse culture and tradition.
Tradition varies festivals go with food sumptuous!

September 4th-ONAM FESTIVAL

Third biggest Religion HINDUISM indeed is great
All its festivals, principles and practices – a treat
Infusing oneness and unity, peace and poise in all
Trying to make the people joyous and happy quite tall!

Festivals an effective tool-many they are in all states
Today is ONAM-great festival of Kerala state
God’s own country-Festival of rice harvest, Rain Flowers
Prayer offered to Mahabali whose grace is showered!

Here is an ONAM special song in Malayalam

“Maveli nadu vaneedum kalam,
manusharellarum onnupole
amodhathode vasikkum kalam
apathangarkkumottillathanum
kallavum illa chathiyumilla
ellolamilla polivachanam
kallapparayum cherunazhiyum
kallatharangal mattonnumilla
adhikal vyadhikalonnumilla
balamaranangal kelppanilla”

which can be broadly translated into

“When Maveli ruled the land,
All the people were equal.
And people were joyful and merry;
They were all free from harm.
There was neither anxiety nor sickness,
Deaths of children were unheard of,
There were no lies,
There was neither theft nor deceit,
And no one was false in speech either.
Measures and weights were right;
No one cheated or wronged his neighbor.
When Maveli ruled the land,
All the people formed one casteless race”

Where do we go from here-no time to stand and stare earlier saying
Unfortunate- it is changed as”No time to sit and eat!!!!”and crying!
Any living being needs food to sustain life hale and healthy
To be taken leisurely with kith and kin at the time usual.

Lo, what a pity it is man who finds time for work, entertainment,
Games and sports, finds little time to enjoy a morsel in fulfillment
Of physical needs! Fast food comes to his rescue and finishes fast
Samosa, burger, sandwiches, pizza and what not and what cost!!!!!

Today it is NATIONAL FAST FOOD DAY- looks funny and special items
Getting ready to honor the DAY! Rice cheese balls,YUM,
McAloo wrap, Churrasquito grilled over hot coals and served
With cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayo.’Maccas well prepared!
