To repeat a little from Tale 33 ,

“TALE IS A TALE and the teller is a teller! Normally it will be a Sunday Story in ENVIUS THOUGHTS but today it is SATURDAY STORY!

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 1699 days ago! ENVIUS THOUGHTS took birth on that great day with its FIRST POST “MY TRYST WITH LIC” and today on 24th August, it is SEVENTEEN Hundredth post! Post for a TALE- “TALE OF A BLOGGER 34”! (34X50=1700)

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 34th TALE OF THE BLOGGER!
Let us have a look at the overall views since the last Tale…

22/08/2019   1660thstday 1698th post   2,08,000

A landmark achievement was crossing the overall views of TWO LAKS on 11th June!  I was indeed thrilled to receive NATIONAL ICON Award from the GLOBAL RECORDS AND RESEARCH FOUNDATION in appreciation of the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS for crossing two lac views!

Much water has flown under the Ganges since Tale 33! Naturally; life is a flowing river, glowing light, swirling waves, brewing breeze, running and falling water, tasteful feast, swimming duck, flying bird!

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! I presented my paper and a poem in Tamil and I was awarded MOZIKAPPAR  and MA. PO. SI Awards.

Again a wonderful day that will not go out of my mind for years to come is SATUR DAY the Seventeenth August! The  day that I got my FIFTY FIRST AWARD for my to Tamil literature especially the Magnum opus Thirukkural written two thousand years ago by the Saint Poet Chennai born THIRUVALLUVAR.

”குறளரசு விருது” (KURALARASU AWARD) was given to me jointly by உலகத் தமிழாராய்ச்சி நிறுவனம், சென்னை மாநகரத் தமிழ்ச் சங்கம், வி.ஜி.பி. உலகத்தமிழ்ச் சங்கம் in a function held at World Tamil Research Organization, Tharamani, Chennai  Award was handed over by Hon’ble Minister of Tamil Development, Tamilnadu Ma. Pandiarajan in the presence of the heads of the three organizations Mr. Vijayaraghavan, Director of the Research Center, Mr. Barathi Sukumaran President of the Thamiz Sangam and Mr. V G Santhosham President of the VGP World Tamil Organization..

So much is for this SATURDAY STORY!! We shall meet with a Sunday story tomorrow!!!!!! Till then GOOD BYE!

At Thanjavur Sangeetha Mahal, Palace being honored with MOZIKAAPPAR award

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?

30

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.

Yet another non Sunday Story – TALE- on 19th WEDNESDAY Story!!!!!!  At times it happens and I have been sufficiently told my well wishers that I can’t afford to be VERY RIGID in certain matters and I have to be a little flexible! OK-hence the TALE OF A BLOGGER as a Non-Sunday Story- a WEDNESDAY STORY! Any how  I am sure my esteemed viewers will be interested about the contents only -no matter when!

As is the practice we shall look into the progress of overall views of Envius Thoughts since the last Tale 25 on 8th July 2018:

28//07/2018 1246th day- 1299th post- 1,60,000

In this way number of views is strongly progressing giving a sense of achievement. I take pride and pleasure to communicate the crossing of every 1000 views to all my well wishers through all possible methods- Whatsapp, Facebook two Accounts, Bloggers’ Meet-Up, gmail and so on!

Posting a BLOG every day differently does demand its pound of flesh from the body, mind and intellect!But that PASSION for BLogging overtakes all other factors and with the grace of God and the support of my esteemed viewers and WORDPRESS, I have been carrying on and let us whether it can go on till my…………..!

After the release of tributes to HH Jayendra Saraswathy of Kanchi Kamkoti Peetam ,referred to in the last Tale 26, things are taking shape and are in their places! Once things are in their right places we are safe, peaceful and happy! Whenever they get misplaced, miseries follow!
It is said misery never comes single but in battalions!Of course that is our experience too. All such statements are based on the experience rs! Very rarely we come across the opposite also. Happy happenings come in battalion rarely! Happiness is of course a state of mind but then, reality also counts. In August and September I had several opportunities to participate in the Poets Meets and every one I enjoyed as much as the audience.
I had the joy of  getting honored on 4th August at the hands of UNITED WRITERS  ASSOCIATION OF INDIA, Chennai with UWA ADMIRABLE ACHIEVERS AWARD FOR THE YEAR 2018 from the hands of Tamil Nadu Governor in an impressive function thanks to Chaveliar Dr. K. Thiyagarajan -Secretary General of UWA. Here is a photo with the Shield and Certificate:.

Nellore in Andhra Pradesh is a highly cultured and scholastic city and an organization by name Simhapuri Fine Arts Academy honored  8 great people and they chose to add me to their list of honor and I was honored with  N T R Memorial National Award and here is a photo of the occasion. Since there is going to be a full Sun Day  story on this subject in ENVIUS THOUGHTS, I stop with this on this subject.

There is a literary organization called ILAKKIYA SOLAI here in Chennai who organized a special Tamil Poets Meet in which the following Nine poets their presentations in Tamil about the greatness of the places  from which they hail from:

  1. Coimbatore- Poet Mukil Dhinakaran
  2. Bangaluru – Poet V. Kalyankumar
  3. Arani- Poet Kozhappalur M. Babu.
  4. Panruti- Poet Sundara Palaniappan
  5. Salem- Poet Salem Siththu.
  6. Hosur- Poet Smt. M. Manimegalai.
  7. Sivagangai- Poet C. Balakumar
  8. Tirupur Poet K Velusamy and
  9. Thanjavur Poet N V Subbaraman (self)                            There is a wonderful “11th Guntur International Poetry Festival “for three days 20-22 September and for attending the same I go with S . Nivetha on 19th and return on the morning of 23rd.                               Life is going on smooth and sound for which I immensely thank God – though I of course  not a day passes of  sans a minor physical suffering here and there in the 5’4″ tall human body! Naturally what cannot be cured must be endured and it is rightly said the ” DOCTOR TREATS AND GOD CURES” but in HIS own wisdom God does not cure and Doctor continues to treat!!!!!!!!!                                                             Thanks my dear esteemed viewers , this Tale ends here and we shall meet tomorrow.  I may come and I may go, but my Blog must go without break and hence I have planned to schedule the posts till 23rd here and now and hence I appear to be busy! Till tomorrow may GOD be with you!

TALE OF A BLOGGER 26

 

 

“Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind. …
It’s pretty scary to know how quickly time flies. …
It’s crazy how fast time flies and how things progress. …
Time flies really quickly. …
Time flies. …
Time flies never to be recalled. …
Time flies like an arrow – but fruit flies like a banana. …
Time flies so quick.”

Yes, my esteemed viewers, this exactly is my experience on the “flying time” and a few of the quotes on the subject!
It looks as if my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com was just launched today-but it is 1300th day prompting me to write this Sunday story with the above caption- TALE OF A BLOGGER 26! Yes 26X50= 1300!
Today it is 1247th day of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and 1300th post(a land mark day in the life of the Blog) necessitating the TALE OF A BLOGGER in tune with the tradition of the Blog- A TALE FOR EVERY FIFTY POSTS as a Sunday Story!
!
Normally this Blogger makes it a point to give a longer story instead of a twelve line poem on Sundays when the viewers will be more at leisure and can comfortably read a longer write. This week it is 1300th post falling on an usual Sunday
It is extremely gratifying that with the grace of the Almighty GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY, WORD PRESS and my esteemed viewers the Blog has traveled to its 1300th post happily and uninterruptedly since its launch on 25th February 2015.

India that is Bharath my holy Motherland is blessed by giving birth to various Seers , philosophers, pontiffs and religious heads. One such noble sul was Adhi Sankaracharya, born in Kaladi, spread Hinduism in East and West, north and South by walking every inch, established several Peethas- and one such is KANCHI KAMAKOTI PEETHA in Tamilnadu. 68th Pitathipathi His Holiness Sri Jayendhra Saraswathi entered HIS heavenly abode a couple of months back

This much is this weeks Sunday Story. We shall meet tomorrow. Till then GOODBYE-GOD BE WITH YOU!–

 

 

Envius Thoughts crosses 1 60 000 views.

I am  glad to share with  you all that Envius Thoughts has crossed overall view score of 1 60 000 with 241st view at 23.50 hours yesterday-saturday 28th July  in its 1300 th post on 1247th day thanks to your encouragement and support . Kindly continue. Thanks

TALE OF A BLOGGER 24!

 

Today it is 1149th day of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and 1200th post necessitating the TALE OF A BLOGGER in tune with the tradition of the Blog!
This tale 24 is again for the second time unique (is it peculiar!?!?!?)- as it is a SATURDAY STORY and not a SUNDAY STORY as usually the TALES come only on SUNDAYS in the last three years. Blog has entered into the FOURTH year and I wish this is not a forerunner for the things to come! Yet these two TALES appear on Saturdays!!!
Normally the Blogger makes it a point to give a longer story instead of a twelve line poem on Sundays when the viewers will be more at leisure and can comfortably read a longer write. This week it has so happened that 1200th post also falls on a Saturday as the 1150th did and could not be negotiated and hence this TALE 24 comes as a SATURDAY STORY and the Sunday Story will appear on 22nd April on the chosen subject!
It is extremely gratifying that with the grace of the Almighty GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY, WORD PRESS and my esteemed viewers the Blog has travelled to its 1200th post happily and uninterruptedly since its launch on 25th February 2015.
As is the practice we shall look into the progress of overall views of Envius Thoughts since the last Tale 23 on 3rd March 2018:
09/03/2018 1106th day- 1156th post- 1,35,000
16/03/2018 1113th day 1163rd post- 1,36,000
21/03/2018 1119th day 1169th post – 1,37,000
27/03/2018 1124th day 1175th post- 1,38,000
01/04/2018 1129th day 1180th post 1,39,000
08/04/2018 1136th day 1187th post 1,40,000
20/04/2018 1149th day 1200th post 1,41,

In this way number of views is strongly progressing giving a sense of achievement. I take pride and pleasure to communicate the crossing of every 1000 views to all my well wishers through all possible manner- WhatsApp, Facebook two Accounts, Bloggers’ Meet-Up, gmail and so on!
I am often reminded of a quote that I read about 57 years ago,, while I was a student of Alagappa College, Karaikudi: “Art and Literature of the highest order cannot flourish in a world that is increasingly becoming mechanical and the society a rocket”! Yes in these fast food days where and how does one find time for literary activities!
Yet there are several groups devoted to foster literature of different genres. Envius Thoughts has already carried Sunday Stories on CHENNAI POETS CIRCLE, VIJAYAWADA poets group and so on. There is a nice group= of course a little sophisticated and dwell in the higher ranges of POETRY World-the group known s INDIA POETRY CIRCLE from Chennai. They innovate activities among the members and go ahead in great way.”CONFLUENCE “ in one such activity a nice anthology! In writing poem one poet will contribute one line each! First line from the first poet, 2nd from the next, 3rd from the third and so on!
They meet every month and present their poems and discussions ensue! A great experience indeed!
The IPC has members from different parts of our Motherland -East and West, North and South!
One of the members is a retired Professor of English from Kerala who became a little close to me and our esteemed viewers will find her thoughts on Envius Thoughts as Sunday Story tomorrow! Tale of the Blogger has yielded place to a new Poet in the blog! I am sure the story will be enjoyable!


During the Tale period, a new anthology was brought out with the name and title “METVERSE MUSE GOLDEN JUBILEE ISSUE” from Vishakapatnam beautifully and scholarly edited by a veteran Poet and Editor DR. H. TULSI a detailed review of this work was published in this Blog on 18th March. (can be viewed from the archives of March 2018).
Opportunities are provided by the Lord almighty in any form and in many forms!
One such came to me a couple of days back. A poem was written by an young girl suffering from terminal cancer nd the hospital authorities from abroad have sent it all over the globe and I have sent the same to about 300 friends of mine-poet and non poet friends by mail. I reproduce the same with a request “LET US HELP”.
Slow Dance
This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer.
She wants to see how many
people get her poem.

It is quite a poem, please pass it on.
This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a
New York Hospital.
It was sent by a medical doctor Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.

SLOW DANCE
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last..

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift….
Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

FORWARDED E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL COUNT.

Dear All:
PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know –
even to those you don’t know!
It is the request of a special girl, who will soon leave this world
due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to
live their life to the fullest, since she never will.
She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school,
or get married and have a family of her own.

By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a
little hope, because with every name
that this is sent to, the American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name
to her treatment and recovery
plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6.

It’s not even your money, just your time! Pls read n forward … !!

My esteemed viewers are the first to be shared with of the news of your favorite  Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is getting into the ASIA PACIFIC RECORD BOOK- promotion from national level -INDIA BOOK OF RECORDS!-

So we end this TALE 24- a Saturday Story with a resolve “LET US HELP”. Thanks . Tomorrow a regular SUNDAY STORY THOUGHTS on THOUGHTS will greet you early in the morning!.

Every Sunday there will be a SUNDAY STORY and all the week days Monday to Saturday English poems will be the posts. Poems will be translations of great Tamil works of Saint Tamil Poet Thiruvalluvar, National Poet Mahakavi Bharathiyar, Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi of Thiruvannamalai, tamilnadu and so on.

Quite interesting presentation of an involved career spanning a period of nearly four decades. I remember the association I was privileged to have with you in Thanjavur D.O. during late 1960 s,when,we were together in P.h.s. and you used to give the highest number of revival quotations and acted as a role model for others to follow. I cherish the association We had on subsequent occasions when you were heading Bikaneer and subsequently Cuddapah. divisions of L.I.C. and even after your retirement when you Visited Hyderabad as a Trainer of Bajaj AllianZ. Best wishes for a Long, healthy future.

Dear Sir, it was nice reading your autobiography relating to your experiences in LIC. I too had the good fortune of working with you (not under you…!! while you were MM at Salem and I was Sr.BM at Salem North) I was also receiving your copies of “Young Poet” and used to enjoy going thru’ the poems. I remember one of your advises that you gave me when I told you that I was transferred to Delhi in 2001, you told me… keep your head cool and your feet warm.
Sir, I wish you all happiness, joy, good health and prosperity in your life….

Record holder N V Subbaraman with his trophy and certificate.

This I owe to the grace of my God of Learning and my esteemed Viewers support. Kindly read my post titled ENVIUS THOUGHTS ENTERS THE INDIA BOOK OF RECORDS from the archives of https://nvsr.wordpress.com.
The Lord Almighty has blessed us with this human life to LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL and HELP EVER HURT NEVER. To the extent possible we must achieve something that should be remembered by our posterity; that will indeed be the fulfillment of ones birthl I used to contemplate often whether we are leaving something to the world.

One of the things that come to my mind and gives a sense of satisfaction is my translation of the great Saint Composer Shri Sathguru Thyagaraja’s Pancha Rathna Keerthanas –FIVE GEMS OF COMPOSITIONS- to Tamil from the original Telugu at the instance of a great scholar and devotee of Maha periyava Translation by itself has not much of significance unless otherwise it is rendered by a competent group of musicians. and in this case it was a group from Madurai comprising Smt. Ranganayaki Sachidanandam- vocal, Shri Sachidanandam- violin- and Dr. K Thiyagarajan-Mridangam. The CD was brought out by an organization named THISRADWANI. 

 

 

.When a leading Tamil monthly magazine KALAIMAGAL made a review of the translation brought out in the form of a CD by a leading musical troupe of Madurai- Smt. Ranganayaki Sachithanandam vocal, Shri Sachidanandam violin and Dr. K Thyagarajan Mridhangam- There was a wave of demand for the CD from many countries where the Tamil magazine is read –it was in February 2013.
When Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam former President of India – a great lover of Karnatic music heard the CD and called on the artists in Madurai to hear the songs rendered in person which was reported by me in my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHFS , another wave of demand arose.
Newspaper like the HINDU is a powerful medium and on 15th December they commended the translation, a third wave was in and continues till now. Spate of phone calls enquiring about the translation and requesting for the CDs continues and I am still attending to promptly! Significance about this translation is despite the appeal of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in the year 1963 while inaugurating the Thyagabramma aradhana for translating the Telugu keerthanas into different Indian languages for the people all over can understand and appreciate the musical outpourings of the Saint Composer musician, no attempts were made and this translation of mine is very first. I take it as God’s will and grace.
Come December-January-Chennai Music Season is on! Karnatic musicians and music lovers from all over the world flock to Chennai!
I had a good opportunity to visit two of the programmes- one Chennaiyil Thituvaiyaru at Kamarajar Arangam and the other Mylaopre Fine Arts Society in their auditorium. In the earlier one I was honored for my translation of Thyagayya’s Pancha Rathna Keerthanas.

 

Latest news is that one of the karnatic music lovers from US who has come to India wanted to take about 25 CDs to enable him to distribute the same among the music schools in US to enable them to make their students sing

Thus comes to an end this TALE OF A BLOGGER Part 22 with my hearty thanks to the Almighty, WORDPRESS and my valuable and esteemed viewers from all over the globe. Latest viewer is from Northern Mariana Islands!!!!!
We shall meet on Monday. Thanks.
