What a wonderful creation of God the Almighty,
Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient-mighty!
Sun and moon, stars and planets, sky and earth, hills and mountainside
Nature’s manifestation-God’s magnificence- indeed great!
Shadows -morning to noon and noon to evening lovely watch
Long shadows getting smaller and smaller-growing taller
And taller- bad friendship morn to noon shadow like and good
Friendship is like noon to evening shadow like- nature’s beauty!
Lack of shadow is beautiful!Happens twice a year,
For places between twenty three point five plus and minus
Degrees latitude! The Sun is almost never exactly overhead
At noon, but transits a bit lower in altitude, a bit
To the north or south. Earth’s rotation axis is inclined
To the plane of its revolution around the Sun – varies seasons!.
Sun, in its highest point of the day, will move south to North
Of the celestial equator-Uttarayan and Dakshinayanin a year!.
The northern most and southern most two solstices,
And the crossing of the Sun across the equator two equinoxes.
For people living between the degrees referred the Sun’s declination
Equals to their latitude twice On these two days, the Sun
Will be exactly overhead at noon and will not cast a shadow on the ground.
This Zero Shadow Day falls today in Namakkal District of Tamil Nadu!
Significant day is tomorrow twenty eighth February

In the particle of a star
Shattered to pieces
You were born!

Without rest or respite!
Neutrino has overtaken you
A bit overtaken you!!

Full to the brim with magnetic zones!
To the brim with hot balls-fire balls!
Overflows with volcanoes!
Overflowing with the heaps
Heaps of black and big power!
How the Universe moves
It moves well!
How active is Universe
It is going active as it should!

What for it has to exist?
Why should it exist?
For answers to such questions
This commoner’s little knowledge
It becomes scientific deaf!
These are the puzzles
These are the riddles
These are the challenges
Carry on, run, rush
Hasten to touch
Hasten to reach
The borders of the UNIVERSE!
In this long journey
In this arduous travel

OZONE prevents the ultraviolet radiation
From reaching the ground, creating normal condition
For the life on the planet; protects us from the sun rays
And forms suitable light and warmth conditions of the world!
Depletion of the layer increases radiation
Causing skin cancer, cataract, and weakens immune system
Making us suffer the infectious diseases!
Today is WORLD OZONE DAY- let us think and protect Ozone!
