Seventh December today – a day to show our gratitude to our great
Indian Armed Forces who are engaged in protecting our holy and sacred
Motherland India that is Bharat-sacrificing their personal comforts
And conveniences living far far away from their family for long!
Indian Armed Forces Flag Day is today to donate our might for their welfare
Flag Day of India dedicated towards collection of funds from people for welfare
Of the Indian Armed Forces personnel. observed annually since ninety forty nine
A tradition as an honour to the soldiers, sailors and airmen of sacred India.
Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India, on December 7, 1954 said:
“A few weeks ago, I visited Indo-China and saw our officers and men attached to the International Commission there. It gave me a thrill to see their smart bearing and the good work they were doing in that distant land. What pleased me still more was their general popularity with the people there. By their efficiency as well as their friendliness, they enhanced the reputation of India. Among them were people from all parts of India. They observed no provincial or other differences amongst themselves. I am sure my countrymen will be pleased to learn of them and would like to indicate their appreciation of these young men who serve our country both here and elsewhere so well. A way to indicate that appreciation is to contribute to the Flag Day Fund.”
Volunteering for any good cause is gradually on the wane
In the fast food days everyone is concerned with one’s own!
Here is a day today Fifth December International Volunteer Day
To make me conscious of volunteering to be of assistance to all!
International Volunteer Day desired by the United Nations
General Assembly, is viewed as a unique chance for volunteers and Organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and
To promote their work among their communities, non-governmental Organizations, United Nations agencies, and the private sector.
Programme contributes to peace and development by advocating
For the recognition of volunteers and working with partners to integrate
Volunteerism into development programming. Great objective indeed-great.
The diverse and dynamic role of volunteerism in promoting the Sustainable Development Goals merits strong support from Governments and other stakeholders. On this International Day, I thank volunteers for their efforts to leave no one behind. Secretary General’s gratitude expressed.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres
Disability need not and should not lead one do despair and dejection
Make the individual a burden on the family or society- can plunge into action
In a way that will make equal with others in all respects-notwithstanding.
God has given them all intelligence and wisdom, thinking capacity and act.
This year, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities focuses
On the empowerment of persons with disabilities for inclusive, equitable
And sustainable development -Agenda for Sustainable Development, pledges
To ‘leave no one behind’ and recognizes disability as a cross-cutting issue.
To have some disability or other-minor or major- not one’s making
It is HIS will and the society to accept such persons as individuals
And help as much as possible to make them forget their disability
To lead life as they can and like! Let us play our part with dignity!

Funny days and functions are there all over the world to enjoy
They too have a meaning and significance which we have to unfold!
To keep us trim and have a decent look by shaving regularly
Every one has his own method! one follows meticulously !
He shaves once in three days-days multiples of three- three, six, nine….
Hair cut only on penultimate Sundays of all odd months-one, three, five….
Unless the day happens to be an auspicious day like New Moon Day .,
I know him for the past seventy nine years and he is ‘this blogger’!
In service and out of service= retired life now- the same practice .
No-Shave November is this month to bring in awareness by embracing
Our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild
And free. Donate the money we spend on shaving and grooming to educate
About cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle!
No shaving gives a majestic look of its own-cherished by youngsters
And several hair styles developed these days giving a look peculiar
Hair stylists probably make a research to satisfy their clients
Any how that is an indication of the society’s progress!
Funny the viewers may think of the Blog Envius Thoughts posts peculiar
At times! Posts describe what we have not come across in India by that
Nomenclature and practice. Certain days strange and alien unheard of!
Twenty Sixth November today is one such -.Shopping Reminder day
Christmas – most wonderful time of year filled with gifts, festivities,
And a host of promotions constantly bombarding people in United States.
Christmas has become commercialized, and one is surprised at
A holiday to remind people to shop when everyone is busy with shopping.
Yes, we have great Diwali, Sankranti, New year days at States different
To purchase – textiles, provisions, sweets and savories -what not on earth?
But NO SHOPPING REMINDER DAY for us!!!!Yes, traditions and culture,
Differ in different countries over the world. We look with interest!

Days are days-Good, Bad or Indifferent- proves to be different for
Different persons-though all wish others a great day or good day!
Wishing someone for a bad day is indeed funny and peculiar
Today November nineteenth is “HAVE A BAD BAD DAY” quite alien to us!
Have a Bad Day Day created by Ruth and Thomas Roy to encourage people
To wish others to have a bad day. sales people always wish their customers
A nice day when they are finished with their sales pitch- a routine.
To surprise people and throw them off guard, wish them a bad day today.
It is a good chance to be impolite without somebody noticing it.
Whether we are looking for a change or want to be secretly impolite,
Today is the day to try it. Looks funny, yet not without a reason!
Funnier days are there to follow in due course-beware viewers!
Hope, faith, belief, disbelief, superstition- human beings are beset with!
“GOD IS NOWHERE” “GOD IS NOW HERE”- groups of people to assert-thick!
November Eighteenth today is OCCULT DAY-a day to think and ponder over
Secret mysterious , hidden from view-occultism study of philosophy.
History has rich and mysterious religions, practices, and beliefs
That shaped the world , hinting at powers below the surface of the mundane
World. Occult Day to delve into this mystery, to commune with spirits
Seek truths that hide behind the stars and between the shadows.
Had we heard ever strange whispers or had dreams that became prophetic,
Then Occult Day is our chance to listen a little closer, dream a little deeper,
And reach for those mysteries that lie beyond the reach of common man.
Let us try to analyse by experience the beliefs,disbeliefs we have!
