NATIONAL PET DAY April 11th

Our children indeed are our pets even when in teens and above!
God’s will and creations are unique and many can be our pets!
If we consider our pet a member of the family, we
Are normal humans. Millions have dogs and cats as lovely pets!
Fish, birds, gerbils and turtles are also deemed to be so by many.
We love pets and National Pet Day is the purr-fect our furry,
Feathery, or scaly friends on April Eleventh- today our pet day!
Here isaa what Mahakavi Bharathiyar expresses his love for pets as if he advises his pet children!
IN TAMIL

சின்னஞ் சிறுகுருவி போலே-நீ
திரிந்து பறந்து வா பாப்பா
வன்னப் பறவைகளைக் கண்டு – நீ
மனதில் மகிழ்ச்சி கொள்ளு பாப்பா!
கொத்தித் திரியுமந்தக் கோழி – அதைக்
கூட்டி விளையாடு பாப்பா.
எத்தித் திருடுமந்தக் காக்காய் -அதற்கு
இரக்கப் படவேணும் பாப்பா!
பாலைப் பொழிந்து தரும் பாப்பா! – அந்தப்
பசுமிக நல்லதடிப் பாப்பா!
வாலைக் குழைத்துவரும் நாய்தான் அது
மனிதற்குத் தோழனடி பாப்பா!
வண்டி இழுக்கும் நல்ல குதிரை நெல்லு
வயலில் உழுதுவரும் மாடு,
அண்டிப் பிழைக்கும் நம்மை ஆடு – இவை
ஆதரிக்க வேணுமடி பாப்பா!

April 8th-ZOO LOVERS’ DAY!

Image result for Zoo Lovers Day 2019-Animals in cages

Yet another instance of man’s selfishness and expression of superiority
The Omnipotent Lord Almighty created all living beings with equality!
The animals big and small, mild and wild happily to roam about with freedom
Kept in cages in the Zoo , for the visitors to enjoy sans fear of getting harmed!

Food and water basic for living to wait to be provided by the zoo keepers
Showing anger at the visitors fun and pranks  by sound and jumping here and there
Within the small cage! Freedom for  man, cage for the animals what a disgrace!
Today the April Eight is “ZOO LOVERS DAY!” What a cruel love at the most!A pity!

First modern zoo  established in  Vienna, Austria in Seventeen Fifty Two
To viewing pleasure of the imperial family,after thirteen years extended to public.
In Seventeen Seventy Five next zoo was opened in Madrid, Paris  Seventeen ninety
Explosion of desire for zoo’s the power of a nation to have strange  animals
From far-flung places available for their pleasant peasantry view and joy!.

December 11th-International Mountain Day

Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Lord Almighty
In HIS ocean of compassion created the whole world with all
Living beings, humans and animals, high mountains and deep valleys,
All to coexist for the mutual peace and plenty, joy and health!

”Mountains Matter” – theme for this International Mountain Day
Crucial role they play in providing key ecosystem goods and services
To the planet and their vulnerability due to climate change,
We all of us have to step up and raise attention to mountains.

Mountains Matter for Water as mountains are the world’s ‘water towers’
All glaciers in mountain ranges around the world retreat and disappear.
Mountains Matter for Disaster Risk Reduction as climatic variations trigger disasters.
Avalanches, mud flows and landslides tumble downstream, strip bare forests.

Mountains Matter for Tourism as mountains attract global tourism
Mountains Matter for Food as centers of biodiversity
Mountains Matter for rural Youth as life in the mountains is tough.
Abandon their villages in search of employment elsewhere.

Mountains Matter for Indigenous Peoples as mountain areas host
Ancient indigenous communities with precious knowledge, traditions.
Mountains Matter for Biodiversity as half of hotspots are in mountains
Mountains are home to rare animals such as gorillas, snow leopards etc.

Large social movement can bring mountain issues through a global campaign
Social media strategy and events around the world, to tell the world
That the current neglect of mountains and mountain peoples must stop.
Let us use the hashtag Mountains Matter in all our social work.

SONG OF THE FROG!

Frog, a nice creation of the Lord Almighty
Small creature with a good purpose to serve lovely
Valued as food by humans, have cultural roles
Many in literature, symbolism –souls!

Nearly five thousand species many extinct
God’s ways are always inscrutable and distinct
When in rainy days and enjoying bath in water
Joyfully sings-ears special needed to enjoy!

Song of the frog sweet with its own rhyme and rhythm
Lying in the bed, silence all around in the night
Listening to the song is pleasant and great right
Pesticides and chemicals deform the frog  pity!

SONG OF A DONKEY

All living beings on earth are indeed the great creation of God
Humans- man and woman, animals-mild and wild plants and trees my Lord’s
Rivers and tanks, lakes and seas, hills and mountains all over the world
To live in peace and harmony-each for all and all for each in HIS scheme!

Known for its patience and usefulness is the creation of donkey
Great help and assistance to the man to do hard and sustained work
Unique in its appearance, behaviour and character nice
Man to take care for all what it does for the human beings-a spice!

Song of the donkey is of course nice and sweet for those ears that enjoy
Considered to be auspicious as man thinks of things that annoy
Faithful creation that murmurs not nor disobeys its master
Lovely donkey we have to thank HIM and take care with mind faster!
