MY DEAR MAN!

Oh! My dear man, my beloved kith and kin!
You and me are created by God, the King of Kings!
To coexist, cooperate, help, live and let live.
That you are stronger than me does not give
The right and license to you and to your ilk
To annihilate me and my family who for sure
For nothing in return, provide you shade, air pure
Fruits and flowers of different tastes and hues!

We live in the lap of Mother Earth as you do
We breathe, we grow, we help, we serve sans ado
We need no shelter, but provide the same to the poor
We need no home but provide homes to million birds
We need no air from you but serve the same to mankind
We need no food from you but we give the same to you
We nurture no ill-will, nor envy your growth and joy!

In turn, on any flimsy grounds you chop our head and hands
Mercilessly annihilate us and our tribe for thy selfish reasons
Oh man! Think awhile before you take your axe!
On one side, you plant my young ones in hundreds with fanfare
On the other, kill us without rhyme or reason quite unfair.

You and I are created by God, the King of Kings!
That you are stronger gives you no right or license
To destroy our tribe for your selfish needs
None but we, condemn your ugly deeds.
Spare our lives for your healthy lives
Share our concern with your lovely friends!

“GREAT RAINS” GIFT OF NATURE/ GOD A HUMBLE PRAYER.

Middle of JUNE is gone-gone sans rains-my God or Nature Why this punishment
To me a citizen of Chennai. I know I have not been good to any,
I do not love all,  serve all-though I say help ever hurt never, I follow not strict
I deserve to be denied of Thy grace Lord Varuna- but not my kith and kin here!

By now year after year we use to get the grace of Rain God –and blessed
With RAIN- this year not till now!. Prayers are on seeking your grace
Every nook and corner- Be kind enough to bring in RAIN to this starved city
Of Chennai. For drinking water and other purposes we do not get water enough.

We pay heavily and exorbitantly for the little water, to those who help us
We can only pray, beg you to bring us rains and do rain water harvesting!
Oh! Lord Varuna-Rain God- kindly lend us your ears and bless us with rain
May all  living beings humans and  animals, trees and plants get their thirst quenched!

WELCOME JUNE!

Image result for images to say good bye to summer and welcome June a new academic year

 

Hearty WELCOME to JUNE forms the content for this week’s Sunday Story in Envius Thoughts! Children and elders were enjoying a nice vacation in the last two months! School holidays mean children can enjoy a larger sleep, no need to get up early, prepare themselves for the school/college, get up as they liker, have frood as they wish, play as they feel in the hot sun notwithstanding! Naturally when the children are not in a hurry, parents too feel a little leisurely! Visiting friends and relatives, kith and kin, local and away-in fact a great time in a year to enjoy- no matter Sun is at his worst in May! Parks and play grounds, private and public full of activities all through the summer vacation! Cool drink shops- ever the people in que- requesting cold Apple juice, Banana milk shake, carrot juice, grape juice, ice cream of any flavor, jack fruit juice, keerani juice,lemon juice, mango milk shake, mulaampaza juice, orange juice, pomo juice,rose milk, sweet lemon juice, water melon juice and what not!
Coconut water, sugar cane juice and palmyra tree gifted NUNGU will do enormous good to our health during summer.

Sommer coming happily water scarcity scaring at the society! Very hard to believe that a tanker of water normally available for Rs 800 or so, shot up to 3000 rupees-horrible indeed! When the Government says there is no water for supplying, where do these thousands of private water tankers get water uninterruptedly- a million dollar question! Government’s apathy, insensitivity, in efficiency?????????????????????.
Summer season travel horrible again-notwithstanding extra fleet of buses, long distance bus standing travel! In spite of advanced train bookings, non availability for those who have to make urgent journeys! People standing in the toilets in the second class compartment! Not imaginasry but the actual experience of this blogger!!!

When children go out for play under the hot sun, on the one side parents feel relieved that the children are not making life horrible sitting at home- on the other worried that playing in hot sun may affect the health of the children!
But look at the pitiable condition of the sweepers, cleaners -street beautifiers who have to work in hot sun or otherwise! There are similarly placed workers everywhere.
There is a period called AGNI NATCHATHIRAM -this year it was from May 3rd to 29thy during which period sun rays will be at the worst and no fan, Ac etc can be of much help!When the sea breeze sets in the coastal areas, evenings may a little pleasant. I use to enjoy for a few minutes intermittently when I go for my morning walk between three and four and evening 5 and 6 in our Youth World in Jeevan Bima Nagar , Chennai where I live.

This June has a special significance for all of us-  the residents of JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR which is celebrating SILVER JUBILEE on 15th and 16th in a magnificent manner- bringing out the talents within the colony and from outside to provide wholesome joy to the inmates of the colony.

A rare and happy occasion for all of us especially the seniors like me as  we can enjoy GOLDEN JUBILEE only from our HEAVENLY ABODE!
I recollect my Haiku poems on SUMMER which I give below though a repeat of long back:

Among the seasons Four
Summer has its own charm
Here are some Haiku nice
Enjoy/suffer along with summer!

1
Summer and winter
Part of Nature – God made sure
Accept with heart pure!
2
Summer is pleasant
To write “Mid summer night’s dream”
Sky throws a crescent!
3
Summer and winter
Brings out the great truth of life
Hot and cold glitter!
4
Sure the world needs both
Hot summer and cold winter
Ensure peoples’ growth!
5
Hot summer brings joy
To my children, the schools close
Nice time to enjoy!
6
Summer has glory
For all of us to enjoy
Can make a story!
7
Summer is pleasant
To all those who have a mind
To taste the crescent!
8
Summer can be cold
As cold as Himalayas
Mind to be quite bold!
9
Great summer showers
Bring mice relief, joy and cheers
Nature’s strong powers!
10
Summer gets flowers
Exotic and excellent
People in great cheers!

Summer knows no discrimination. It is equally harsh for all-big or small, rich or poor, men or women, employed or unemployed, well read or ill read!
Well June has just arrived bringing cheers and responsibilities, activities and attendant duties. Monsoon is expected to arrive shortly. Schools and colleges are to be opened for yet another onset of academic year. Payment of heavy fees, purchase of loads of books and notebooks for children. For my entire studies from Class one to University course, I would not have spent a lakh! Today a school nearby is collecting a couple of lakhs of rupees for PRE KG/LKG.! Is it education has become so costly and quality proportionately increased! Parents paying capacity increased!
I remember in late fifties I walked 16 miles a day for to-fro college in Karaikudi for want of 2+2 = 4 annas for college bus! Today boys and girls of elementary and high school classes go by school bus for a school that is just 500 meters from home in my colony! Naturally we find 4th or 6th standard boys and girls awkwardly OBESE!
One thing I have to admit is that the present day students in all ages are much more intelligent and better general knowledgeable than what I was at that stage!
Well wishing a happy and successful new academic year, we end this sunday story at this stage. Till we meet tomorrow as usual may GOD BE WITH YOU!

Unique indeed is the human mind to device the days in the world
Today it is Sunscreen Day on twenty seventh May save from the Sun world!
Sunscreen Day is clear indication of awful summer’s setting in
With the rising intensity of the sun it is important to use sunscreen
To protect the skin from dangerous and painful sunburns. Using sunscreen
A good and easy method.It defends the skin from damaging ultraviolet rays
And helps to prevent skin cancer. An important day it is and pays!

Different types of sunscreen for different types of skin, application,
Sun intensity and so on. Let us use Sunscreen Day to gather some information
As to which sunscreen is the best for our needs. Let us use and enjoy the sun!
Summer ,oh, Summer we know how to free ourselves from your hot rays!

ODE TO COMMON COLD

 

“Treated cold lasts for days seven and untreated  a week”
Oh! Common cold we have to submit ourselves quite meek
I go in hot outside you chase me and get hold of me
I confine to my a/c room and you take hold of me!

I take normal water from the water can,you are with me
I take a cold water bottle from the fridge you get at me
Rarely I take a cup of ice cream,you do enjoy me
I know not what and where, when and how you wait for me!

No coldorin or thalisaadhi churna helps me much
Nor onion or pepper, vitamin c helps me as such
Both of us are so friendly and close to each other
Let us get along in the company of each other!

WORLD METEOROLOGICAL DAY March 23

Seasons, the creation of Nature designed by God- Almighty
Winter, spring, Autumn and summer seasons four named by the mighty
People enjoy, suffer, happy, sad all depending on comforts
None can help but put up as it is great Nature’s making efforts!

Man tries to master the Nature- right or wrong unable to mend
Meddles with environment merciless –cuts trees for selfish ends
Jocularly said of the three bad seasons-hot hotter hottest
Angered Nature takes revenge- no use fretting and fuming at best!

Today is World Meteorological Day with the year’s theme
“Understanding clouds”- to make us aware of the enormous
Importance of clouds for weather, climate and water all over
Let us respect God and his creations of nature forever!

Clouds indeed   are central to weather observations and forecasts
One of the key uncertainties that defies study of climate change
To understand clouds affecting climate and the vice versa suree
Great day to think, brood over and manage the science of climate pure!
