Prosperous Tomorrow

Amidst
Today’s
And till this day’s
Pain and pangs
Sufferings and sorrows
Falls and failures
Poverty and penury
I do see a
Silver lining
Bright tomorrow
Absolutely bright
Based purely on
Efforts and efficacy
Of hopes and prayer!
Tomorrow
A bright and prosperous tomorrow
Seen through my inward eyes
And its melodies
Heard through my inward ears!

挫折与失败
清贫和穷困中
我确实看到了
一线希望
美好的明天
绝对的光明
完全地基于
努力和奋斗
期盼吧!祈祷吧!
明天
一个光明繁荣的明天
透过我内心的眼睛
它的旋律
从我的内耳传来!

On my part, at the instance of one  great personality devoted to world literature, GERMIN, I am translating several of various languages in the world to Tamil via English. An example is here:

Initiation

Borderless,
dreamy image
of a cypress in meditation,
feathery touch
of fingers and breaths
experienced,
heavenly sounds
and in your eyes,
in your teardrop,
I want to discover
the inconceivable
and cryptic
initiation of time.

Following is her preamble for her new literary venture. There has been a great flow of support from East and West, North and South of our great Motherland India that is Bharath  having a lot of love for literature!

 

Hello to all! 🙏🏽🌷
This group has been started with the only intention of spreading love for literature. Writers from all over India are welcome, here. The writer can share their thoughts/writings in any Indian language( with English translation ) or English. All are welcome.

The only IDEOLOGY here is LITERATURE. Only LITERATURE can be discussed here and nothing else.🍀✌
Non-controversial general messages of value may also be shared, here. 🙏🏽

Here is her self introduction:

Namaste! 🙏🏽Now, let me introduce myself. I am Dr.S.Padmapriya. I hold a Ph.D. degree but not in Literature! Literature is my passion.
I started writing poems in English at the tender age of seven. I have three poetry collections, one short story collection and one novel (literary fiction) to my credit.

My website is dr-s-padmapriya.com

It is indeed a matter of great delight and satisfaction to Dr. Padmapriya, competent chairman  of the group that within  forty eight hour of the formation, more than hundred members all (unlike me a small time poet, writer having just 40 books published) are great poets, writers, professional academicians – Professors and literary researchers!

Views may come and views may go, but as a Blogger I go on as long as my health and mind cooperate!

Thanks

We shall meet as usual tomorrow morning.Till then Bye!

TALE OF A BLOGGER 40

PRESS AND ENVIUS THOUGHTS! – Envius Thoughts

TWO THOUSANDth POST

2000th Post

Yes, today it is 2000th post-and hence the TALE OF A BLOGGER Part 40!

Today is not a Sunday but  it is  2000th post. It is Wednesday 27th May.  Any how I am the monarch of all I survey as for as the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is concerned! I am the writer, Editor, a viewer –thank God I am not the only viewer- more than 2 lakhs viewers are there! PLEASE LOOK FOR THIS SUNDAY STORY also  on 31st May.

1947 days are over since the Blog was launched on 25th February 2015  and today is 1948th day and the post is 2000th without any break. God has been kind enough to bless with physical, mental and intellectual strength to continue this passion sans any break. This Tale has become a Wednesday STORY instead of  SUNDAY STORY!

The blog’s esteemed viewers appear to be reasonably satisfied with the contents and presentation as is seen from the following increasing number of views gradually but steadily though slight depression will be there on a few days.

20/05/2020 1941st day 1992nd post        2,46,000 views

14/05/2020 1935th day 1983rd post      2,45,000 views

Well, during the period covered by the last fifty posts, flood of water has flown under Ganges!

The whole world continues to be flooded with CORONA VIRUS and it is several days we see the people walking or biking on the roads! It is estimated by the scientists that the total weight of the CORONA VIRUS in the ENTIRE WORLD is JUST ONE GRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is what I wrote a small note to my friends in Chennai and some outsiders:

“Men
May walk
May not walk
On the road!
May bike
May not bike
On the road!
But I
Go on
Watching from my balcony
A few who do,
Dogs running here and there barking,
Crows flying in the blue sky
Jumping from branch of
One tree to another.
Tree branches swinging,
This side and that side
Because of wind,
Or because of swinging wind blows?”

Yes today’s CONCERN, WORRY, botheration, thoughts, talks writings  and so on are about that monster virus all over the world called CORONA supposed to have originated from our neighbor CHINA. All are locked in and are under punishment of “STAY AT HOME”! No schools, no colleges, no offices, no factories, no trains, no flights, no transportation, no temples, no churches, no mosques, no Gurudwaras, no eating houses- big or small , palace like hotels or roadside eateries! People depending on daily wages for their food go and stand in queues waiting for the supply of food by generous and philanthropic minded people, institutions and organizations as they do not earn anything to have food these days! No schools, colleges, examinations till June end!

DISTANCING- individual and social is claimed to be one of the effective ways of combating the evil not suffered in the known history of mankind in the recent or distant past.   No face masks, no gloves, no sanitizers!!!!  As of now up to twenty seventh MAY no getting out of home – likely to be extended again and again!

Here is a tribute to this Blogger – deserving or undeserving?????????

Feedback from Mathew Eapen, American blogger’s society member based at New York…

*Dr NVS is the only blogger we have seen in the history of blogging-Doing with out any returns…We have seen many bloggers doing for monitory benefits through advertisement..

His personal blogs are truly great… Earlier the Ginger one has gone viral in bloggers group.. Really a unique blog👍🏼

Now CVK @66…Though I have not seen CVK, I have a clear and vivid picture about him… Great man with a social orientation…Need to appreciate such people..If many CVKs are born , world will be a better place to live*

Rich tribute paid by New York blogger Mathew Eapen, I accept with all humility and thank him for his love and kindness. I only pray God that I continue with greater quality of content and presentation.

I do hope that this Wednesday TALE OF THE BLOGGER Part 40 would have been interesting. Next Sunday Story topic as it is left to the imagination of our esteemed viewers ! Till then Bye!

Yes, what is the magic of TIME! Goddess of Time is very powerful and SHE expects everyone on earth to handle time effectively and efficiently. On the one hand we find the people not knowing what to do with that ”TIME” and on the other hand we do come across people praying the GODDESS OF TIME why she has done only twenty four hours a day and why not it be 48? May be man designed yet……….

I am probably neither here nor there! That I used to get up at 5 in the morning till I completed my college course in 1961, and at 4 till I was in the service of my Alma mater great premier public sector organization Life Insurance Corporation of India where I learnt the art of life and living and now post retirement I get up at 3 yet I am unable to complete my routine with peace!!!

Time and tide waits for none it is said; but tide waits for full moon to blossom to show its beauty in depth!”

Time goes on and on, on and on for eternity! Eternity to eternity! It looks February twenty fifth two thousand and fifteen was just yesterday- but it was 1766 days ago! ENVIUS THOUGHTS took birth on that great day with its FIRST POST “MY TRYST WITH LIC” and today on 1st December 2019, it is EIGHTEEN Hundredth post! Post for a TALE- “TALE OF A BLOGGER 36”! (36X50=1800)

As any other writer, I write for my satisfaction. When they are found to be useful to the viewers through my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com, I am indeed delighted and am motivated to proceed further and further, farther and farther! One measurement of my viewers is obviously the overall number of views.  I do constantly think of how the Blog can be made more interesting.

I am a little sensitive to the daily number of this Blog’s view and overall as I feel it is the measure of viewers’ estimate of the quality of the Blog.  This is 36th TALE OF THE BLOGGER!

A landmark achievement was crossing the overall views of TWO LAKS AND TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND on 26th November 2019!

It has always been a great matter of awe and delight, inspiration and wonder! I mean the astrological/astronomical knowledge of our learned saints and seers, yogis and predictors of the future. That is getting strengthened as days pass bye. Astrology is a great art and science – not superstitious beliefs of a few.

Planets govern the world and they move from house to house from time to time. That way October 30th was “GURU PEYARCHI DAY” that is Transit of GURU-Bruhaspati- from one house to another. That morning in the temple the priest was mentioning that the person having SWATHI star (I am a SWATHI starred person) may have to face minor problems! It took its own stride. One may not believe what I experienced in that very evening! I am a type of person rushing to help others asked or unasked, known or unknown, young or old! Lady from the third floor was going out and she had come to the road. Her son threw a bag at her request from their flat. In the normal course it should have fallen on the ground and she would have picked up and proceeded with her work. In my over enthusiasm to help her, I wanted to catch that bag as it was falling and in the process I hit against the iron gate and got hurt in my head, shoulders and back-thank God not very serious!!!I was writhing in pain for a few hours after applying some ointment!! Then I decided to visit a 1000 year old temple-guru kshethram- in walking distance from my flat- every Thurs day and I continue. It was 4th
a couple of days back!  Several thousands of years ago they calculated that the planet will transit on that day and predicted the possible effect on persons born in different stars!    That is why India, my holy Motherland is very great in all spheres on earth.

On 14th November-Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday being observed in deference to his wishes as Children’s day. We in our colony observed with great fun and respect- a lot of children enthusiastically participating displaying their talents in various activities.

Great MUSIC SEASON commences today in Chennai. Scintillating Music festivals many in each locality- attract lot of music lovers from the whole of India and many countries abroad! A month long season indeed is great for the participating musicians -young and old, men and women-and music lovers of all ages.Music is divine and divinity can be felt, seen and heard in Chennai through out this month.

I am always proud of my esteemed viewers. One Shri Shankar from Pondicherry is one of the regulars and he suggested the post like “November 29th-Sirappuli Nayanar IS 36* Day” in respect of other Tamil Saint poets Nayanmars 63 in number and it will be a big task. Anyhow I may start the series in a planned manner in due course. I am indeed grateful to him.

Mexican poets with Mr. VA.Mu. Sethuraman, President of the Meet and others.

This TALE 35 will focus on a great event that took place on Wednesday, the ninth October this month in a fantastic and unique higher educational institution on the outskirts of the great city of Chennai .

The SOKA IKEDA COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCE FOR WOMEN, Chennai (an ISO certified Institution and the proud recipient of “THE INSTITUTION OF EXCELLENCE AWARD” conferred  by the Indian Council of Gandhian Studies, New Delhi) founded by

Dr. Sethu Kumanan, one of the greatest educationists of Tamilnadu.

He is Dr. Sethu Kumanan hailing from the rural hamlet Kandaramanickam, Sivagangai District is the son of a very great and humane teacher Mr KR Sethu, who is a legend on his own. Mr Kumanan graduated from Raja Duraisingam Memorial College affiliated to Madurai Kamaraj University and pursued higher studies in Annamalai University.

He has a passion for teaching and he is a true educationist.

He has received innumerable awards including MUDIYARASAN AWARD on 7th inst. At Karaikudi.

He is a passionate writer. Our former President Dr. A.P.J. Abdulkalamji has appreciated him personally for his collection of poems written in Tamil.

He has written many books including Malaysia Manimakudam, Idayathul Israel, Masakthi Ikeda, Mexicovil Tamil Kavidaigal and Petra – A travelogue of the trip to Jordan – A compilation of photographs.

He has infinite talents in the film media and he had produced many short films like “Veeramangai Velunachiar”, a film on the brave historical women, “Ellaiyilla Paarvai” – Vision beyond boundaries. These films had the vision to create values in the younger generation. The short film titled “Kadavulai Kandaen “– Saw the Almighty – a real story of Sethu Bhaskara School student, “Bimbam” -to highlight the value of parents and the need to take care of them in their old age and the film titled “Kalviyin Kaimaru”-to inculcate the humane quality of compassion in the mind of everyone are some of his exemplary works and masterpieces.

He is the Correspondent & Managing Trustee of the Sethu Valliammal Educational Trust which renders yeomen service to the society by running many educational institutions of repute, which include:

Sethu Bhaskara Matric. Higher Secondary School (Recognised by Govt. of Tamilnadu), Pudur, Ambattur.

Dr. Ikeda Karunayagam, Anna Nagar West, Chennai.

Sethu Bhaskara Technical Institute, (Recognised by Govt. of India and Govt. of Tamil Nadu)Kandramanickam, Sivaganga Dist.

Soka Ikeda College of Arts & Science for Women (Affiliated to Madras University) , Madhanangkuppam, Chennai 600 099.

Sethu Irani Matriculation School, Kandramanickam.

Sethu Bhasakara Agricultural College and Research Foundation, Visalayankottai, Karaikudi.

Dr Sethu Kumanan holds the prestigious post of the Honorary Senate Member, Middle East University, Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. He is the Editor & Publisher Iniya Ikeda ( An International Magazine) and the Managing Trustee, Village Community Hall – Sri Manickanachi Amman Marriage Hall, Kandramanickam, Sivagangai Dist.

He has visited many countries and participated in several International Poets Conferences. They are  Meets held in Turkey, Israel, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia, Finland, Slovakia, S. Korea, Mexico, Greece, Romania, U.S.A, Switzerland, Australia, Mongolia and Hungary. He has visited more than 60 countries encompassing all the continents and far-flung areas like Arctic and Antarctic regions of the world.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan aspired to achieve something significant in the field of education. With the moral and financial support of his maternal uncle and father-in-law Mr Sethu Bhaskaran, he started a school in 1988 under the banner “Sethu Bhaskara Matriculation Higher Secondary School” at Pudur, Ambattur, Chennai 600 053 with just eight students. The school has now grown up with the guidance and support of numerous well-wishers to the extent of producing state ranks. The school strength is now nearly 8000.

The school imparts value-based education to children, who are mostly first-generation school-goers. Hailing from an economically backward family, Dr Sethu Kumanan could appreciate how financial difficulties could hinder the academic progress of an individual. Sethu Bhaskara MHS school offers concessions within its means and occasionally beyond, to the needy, so as not to deprive a child of knowledge just for want of money.

In Sethu Bhaskara, apart from offering free education and fee concessions to the wards of their staff, the school tries to extend the facility to other students also – parentless, fatherless, financially backward and on medical grounds. Around 248 students enjoy free education. These students and the visually- challenged will come under the banner Dr. Ikeda School Students. The meritorious students – proficient in academics as well in sports are given free education to encourage them and to motivate other students.

Sethu Bhaskara School enjoys the pride of being the first English Medium School in India to launch Integrated Education for the visually-challenged children. The School Management willingly and happily bears the responsibility of providing free education, transport, uniform etc. to the twenty-two visually-challenged students who are covered by this scheme.

The most striking part of this scheme is the mingling of these students with the students in the general stream, by which they attend classes along with the normal children in the regular classrooms. As these children are able to mingle with other students, they gain the confidence that they can cope up with the peers who have normal vision.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan strongly believes that it is not enough just to sympathise with the visually-challenged. Instead, we should see what best can be done for them. That is the reason why all efforts have been taken to initiate to help the visually-challenged enjoy their rights to live happily as others do, by giving them education, which is like eyes to every human being.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan started an Industrial Training Center in his native village Kandramanickam in the year 1997 “ Sethu Bhaskara I.T.C.” with an aim to make them capable bread-winners. The students are trained in different fields – Fitter, Wireman and Electrician etc. Around 300 students have successfully completed the course and are now comfortably placed locally and abroad. He has also started Sethu Irani Matric.Hr.Sec.School in the year 1998 to impart education to students in his native village. More than 500 students are studying.

Taken up by the viewpoint of the great Japanese philosopher Dr.Daisaku Ikeda, an enthusiastic educationist and ardent follower of Gandhian principles, Dr. Sethu Kumanan decided to follow his path. Dr.Ikeda, his mentor, fervently believes in educating the people of the rural area and in the empowerment of women. His adoration for this noble personality lead to the founding of a college exclusively for women, an institution to cater to the educational needs of the rural women in the name of the renowned educationist “ Soka Ikeda College of Arts and Science for Women, Chennai 600 099 in the year 2000. Rightly as the banner specifies, the college imparts value-based education.

It is a matter of pride that the college has been identified as the “Institution of Excellence” by the National Advisory Committee of Indian Council of Gandhian Studies, New Delhi for the services in the field of women’s education and empowerment.

The Father of our Nation has said, Agriculture is the backbone of our nation. However, it is disheartening to see that agriculture is being denied prominence and fields are being transformed to plots for construction. With a vision to revive the interest of the younger generation in farming, he has started Sethu Bhaskara Agricultural College and Research Foundation at Visalayankottai, Karaikudi Taluk, very close to his native place, Kandramanickam, Sivagangai District

Dr. Sethu Kumanan’s dreams are thus coming true by the Grace of God and the good wishes of countless well-wishers. There are yet many dreams of his to take shape, in the words of Robert Frost.

“And miles to go before I sleep And miles to go before I sleep”.

His service in the field of Education is tremendous. Pudur and Madhanangkuppam have found their place in the Indian map of education on account of Dr.Sethu Kumanan. Here is a great man who strives for women empowerment. Thanks to his noble vision, many girls of the rural area of Madhanangkuppam have become graduates and have been placed well in reputed organizations.

The best feature of his character is his humility. It is this humbleness that makes him all the more a great personality.

A helping hand to the needy “hands that help are better than the lips that pray.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan is a benevolent giver who is ready to help the needy. He has helped so many financially backward students in their education.

Dr. Sethu Kumanan hosted SIXTEEN Mexican Poets in the MEXICAN POETRY CENTER in his college referred to above in which several Indian poets including this blogger were invited. College was the venue of the Meet.

The following Mexican Poets and Indian Poets participated in the Meet. With a well-laid agenda, there was an Exhibition and Presentation-Literature and Poetry, India, Japan and MEXICO.

After a pleasing invocation praying Lord Ganesha, Dr R. SandhyaChairman Dr.Sethukumanan addressed.  Madam Lakshmi welcomed the guests. All the Guests were honoured in our traditional manner.  After some discussions, poems were presented by all the participating poets.

27th July was a day to remember and recollect for all my life! There was a conference of Tamil scholars and poets in the historical SANGEETHA MAHAL a part of Thanjavur palace. Thanjavur alias Tanjore  is my home town for long where I started my professional career as a Mathematics teacher in two schools of great repute and switched over to my Alma mater Life Insurance Corporation of India-premier Public Sector Undertaking where I served for more than four decades and learnt the Art and Science of Life and Living!

POMP AND SHOW AFTER DEATH!
Know not where the society is going and where are we heading to!
Man of seventy six a drunkard died in my neighborhood the other day
Just a little sick not cared for by his wife and sons except father
Was there in the house.They fed him only with three “bottles” each day!!!

Well, time had come for him to take leave of his people and the world
Right- a big shamiana was put up, scores of chairs kept for the visitors.
Two band sets started their jarring trumpeting to the agony of others
Youth dancers started their ugly dances to the tune of band sets!
Giant garlands in dozens from different directions were brought
To the accompaniment of different bandsets and dancers!

One Son was connected with a political party!
SWARGA RADHAM was brought gorgeously decorated-with flowers
Fire Crackers were burst in thousands all the time to the head ache of all
After twelve hours, the body was lifted and taken in
A procession couple of kilometers away-traffic held up!
In all not less than three lakhs of rupees spent-wasted-
An orphanage could have fed the orphan children for months two!
Know not where the society is going and where we are heading to?

Presenting poem in ThirukkOvilur Meet

Time and tide waits for none it is said; but tide waits for full moon to blossom to show its beauty in depth!
Time goes on and on , on and on for eternity! Eternity to eternity! It looks February twenty fifth two thousand and fifteen was just yesterday- but it was 1539 days ago! ENVIUS THOUGHTS took birth on 25th February 2015 with its FIRST POST “MY TRYST WITH LIC” and today on 19th May it is SIXTEEN HUNDRETH post!

Now I am on the finishing stage of my Book in Tamil- titled –” கால தேவதை”   (KAALA DHAEVATHAI- GOD OF TIME- almost my autobiography like! As any other writer, I write for my satisfaction. When they are found to be useful to the viewers through my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com, I am indeed delighted and  am motivated to proceed further and further, farther and farther! One measurement of my viewers is obviously the overall number of views. Though I am a little uncomfortable that the daily views  is a little dwindled from what it was earlier, I do r4ealize my helplessness in this regard except constantly thinking of how the Blog can be made more interesting.

I am a little sensitive to the daily number of this Blog’s view and overall as it is the measure of viewers estimate of the quality of the Blog and hence I feel a little apprehensive whether the Blog is losing its sheen.

Not a particle of dust can move sans HIS grace is my firm conviction
Physical or mental or intellectual whatever be the compulsion
Still more difficult and HIS grace is a MUST which I have in full quite pure
Lest the Blog could not be in its ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDREDTH DAY sure!

April Tenth  the Blog is ONE THOUSAND HIVE HUNDRED DAYS old-quite proud
And immensely grateful to the Goddess of Learning Sri Saraswathi-
Not a day’s break since February twenty fifth two thousand fifteen
Day the Blog was born!Posts exceed by SIXTY ONE! Views swell by God’s grace!

Overall views from countries two hundred and ten and more have gone to
ONE LAKH AND NINETY FIVE THOUSAND AND MORE purely a literary Blog
Give joy and satisfaction! Supporting viewers deserve all thanks and praise!
How we wish it continues to grow from strength to strength in the years to come!

Yes, THIRTY TALES are over signifying completion of ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED posts in Envius Thoughts in https://nvsr.wordpress.com in the last 1441 days since February 25th 2015 without break even for a single day which fetched  a place of honor in the Asia Pacific Book of Records which in turn made the World Records University UK to offer me an honorary Ph. D! God Omniscient, Omnipresent and Omnipotent has been uniformly kind towards me in this regard.

Today it is TALE 31-on its 1550th post in 1490th day!

Tale 30 was posted on 10th February-1441st day of the Blog when the number of the posts hit 1500!i

I am a little sensitive to the daily number of this Blog’s view and overall as it is the measure of viewers estimate of the quality of the Blog and hence I feel a little apprehensive whether the Blog is losing its sheen.
Let us have a look at the overall views since the last Tale 30 on 10th February 2019.
10/02/2019  1441st day- 1500th post- 1,91,162..
21/02/2019  1452nd day 1511th post- 1,92,000
07/03/2019 1466th day  1525th post – 1,93,000
23/03/2019 1482ndday  1542nd post – 1,94,000
30/03/2019 1489th day  1550th post    1, 94,500.

As per the TALE PRACTICE let me recollect and share with you the happenings during the TALE 30 and TALE 31- that is during the period to 10th February 2019 to 30th March.- though I would have made a reference in short or in detail in the blog.
In repition our colony JEEVAN BIMA NAGAR, Chennai (as the name suggests the mighty organization Life Insurance Corporation of India promoted this policy holders’ housing scheme)– is one of the biggest colonies within a compound wall with 944 flats , sprawling grounds-Kids World, Youth World, Woman’s World,
A Library, a grand Community Hall, green trees here, there everywhere add beauty to the colony.

We celebrated Women’s Day on 16th March in a fitting manner.
Amidst host of great programs such as shopping stalls, fun and frolic, competitions for children and elders skits, dance programs all engaged the residents till 11.30 in the night.

FACE BOOK SHOT!

Out of the social media, one great is Face Book. Have both good and bad aspects as one’s experience!

For several years I am on Face Book with a  good following. I consider it most unfortunate that fo0r the past few days, FB rejects  my messages reading as:

“Good morning. Today it is “March 29th SMOKE AND MIRRORS DAY!” in Envius Thoughts in https://nvsr.wordpress.com for your kind read and comment. Thanks.”

Reason adduced:

“Your message couldn’t be sent because it includes content that other people on Facebook have reported as abusive.”

I do not know what exactly the word “ABUSIVE” means, “who are the other people on Facebook reported as ABUSIVF”. My esteemed viewers nearing 2,00,000 from more than 210 countries know my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is purely a LITERARY BLOG running for the 1490 days from February 25th 2015 without a break for even a single day

with 1550 posts as on this date, fetching me a place of honor in the Asia Pacific Book of Records based on which WORLD RECORD UNIVERSITY UK has offered me a honorary Ph.D.! But on the basis of some remarks by some person/s inimical to the Blog,                              fb has blocked my” https://nvsr.wortdpress.com” Let us see what i9s there in store for me in the days to come.
