In the creation of the world, the Almighty blessed my sacred
Mother India that is Bharath-birth place of Saints ans Seers
Several attracting the citizens from all over the world
To find peace and harmony, joy through spiritual practices!
One such was Aurobindo born in Kolkatta- philosopher,
Yogi, guru, poet, and nationalist.joined freedom movement
Influential leader turned into spiritual reformer,
Bringing in Auroville in Pondichery-in Nineteen Sixty Eight!
A handful of earth from all over the world placed in an urn at
Center Of Matrimandhir marked the occasion-now Two thousand Eighteen
Waters from hundred and fifty sources across the globe-to be poured
In a golden disc at the heart of the Mandhir-water to unite all!
Waters from sacred Indian rivers seven, Nile and the Dead Sea,
From Rivers, lakes, springs and seas to flow into one pool!
Statue of Aurobindo.
Unified Humanity in Auroville.
In the great creation of the Lord Almighty birth and death
Inevitable! One more is GARBAGE that we accumulate
Day in and day out-at home and roads, schools and offices,
Star hotels or roadside eateries-omnipresent is heaps of garbage’s!
Rightly a GARBAGE FESTIVAL- unheard of- to reduce the Load
On Earth! Twenty Fifth Feb. in Mylapore -heart of Chennai- park to goad
The people to REFUSE-REDUCE-REUSE-REPAIR- RECYCLE.
The best way to serve Mother Earth and Society in style!
Workshops on up-cycling, composting, recycling, Organic Food,
Alternatives to Plastics, connection to various recyclers good!
Re-Starting our old concept of going to a REPAIR shop
Get things Repaired and reused instead of just throwing out!
In the course of gradual evolution of humanity
Language- a great landmark as a facility in society
To communicate with each other indeed an innovation
Different languages In the domain of communication!
One’s mother language is more sacred and important than others
The day the child is able to hear and understand language
Mother language gets ingrained in its mind to last for ever
INTERNATIONAL MOTHER LANGUAGE DAY is today-to forget never!
The day to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural
Diversity and promote multilingualism. Though there are
Six thousand nine hundred and nine languages approx.
One’s Mother language has its own charm and beauty to be proud of!
A section of men from North or South, East or West
In their love and lust for flesh and bone in their best
Have learnt to vulgarize the fine nobility
Spend the time reckless sans respect for sanctity!
One such is this day St. Valentine’s day of feast
Spending a day in joy with the opposite sex-
Open or secret, park or beach, parents know or not;
Let us bring back the glory of the day paying respect,
With a feast to the good and noble saints true to
The spirit of the day and occasion in the world!
Saints and seekers are the noble saviors of the world
Practice it is to pay them homage from the days of old
Romans jailed Saint Valentine for his act of kindness
Of performing marriages for soldiers with boldness!
Jailer’s daughter was cured of illness when Valentine
Was in jail; the day in advance of execution, Saint
Sent a letter to that girl signed ‘your Valentine’
That was meant to be a farewell with a scent!
In God’s wonderful creation millions of men and women
Are born – born to live and die as ordinary women and men
Some are indeed make a mark and live for ever in hearts of all
In the fields different, stamp their feet strong and ever stand quite tall!
One Charles John Huffam Dickens born this day in eighteen twelve
English writer created the world’s best- characters to dwelve
The greatest novelist of the Victorian age-father in a
Debtors prison’-Charles left school and worked in a factory.
Pickwick Papers, David Copperfield, Tale of two Cities, Oliver Twist
Some of his creations immortal- Fifteen novels, five novellas betwixt,
Hundreds Of short stories and articles, campaigned for children’s Rights,
Education and social reforms- let us salute the great!.
Great national poet Mahakavi Bharathiyar declared
“To be born as a woman on earth, great penance one should have made”!
That is the veneration our Motherland shows for woman
This day we observe as “National Girl Child Day”-respect by man!
Bharathi said:”Burn the idiocy of denouncing womanhood”
Alas a pity in a land that reveres Woman as Goddess
In forms many- sad we get news of insults on women each day
In one part of the country or other to be ashamed of-sad!
Equal they are in HIS creation -distinct role they have to play
Noble family they make and more responsible than the menfolk
Today’s GIRL CHILD is tomorrow’s WOMAN- let us celebrate the day
And resolve to take care of the girl child much more than the boy!
