World continues to be blessed by the Lord Almighty
By the birth of noble souls-men and women mighty!
All over the world to protect the humanity
By the great thoughts, words and deeds with nobility!

Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Tilak, Patel,
And host of others from India -fought for freedom
And led the people! Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama,
Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill and a host!

Forget the past.
We pledge ourselves to liberate all our people from the continuing bondage of poverty, deprivation, suffering, gender and other discrimination.
To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children
Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will.
After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

TRICOLOR SPEAKS!

 

With a great pride and pleasure I unfurled our respectful TRI COLOR on 26th January- on the Republic Day in our wonderful colony JEEVAN Bhima Nagar, Chennai.
As I was returning home the flag called me and engaged in a conversation when it outpoured its anguish and sadness. Here is given the gist:
Flag: Oh my great friend, do you know me?
Replied I: What do you mean just an hour back it was I who unfurled you!
Flag: Yes I know and remember for ever; after all you people think of me only twice a year!
In a sullen mood I kept quite.
Flag: I know you can not answer this question! Thank God I could breathe fresh air this day. I have to get back to the cupboard and come again to breathe the fresh air only after seven months!
I responded this time: I am sorry.
Flag: I wonder how many of you atleast remember me on other days?
Again I had no answer to provide.
Flag: Do you know atleast my history?

Me: Yes, I read it my school book 65 years ago.
Flag: I never asked did you read. I only asked you whether you know!
In silence I nodded my head to communicate that I don’t.
Flag: Some one told me that you wrote about me!
Said I: Yes on 15th August 2017 I wrote about you in my blog quoting Mahakavi Bharathiyar praising you in Tamil. I gave it in English also.
Flag: When was it?
Replied I: ON 15th August last year.
Flag: I know that is why I told you that you people remember me only twice a year!!
I had no defence.
Flag: In the rest of the days do you know how many among you make use of me in a rubbish manner?
I know many wrap it on their body and other materials at home or office to protect from dust!
Flag: I am happy in some Government offices they allow fresh air to me from morn till evening every working day!
Desparately I told: “Be happy with it”!
Flag: It is not my happiness; your duty it is as per your own rules framed by great men among you.
Asked I: DUTY! In which era you are in?
Flag: Do you know I represent your culture and tradition-prosperity and sacrifice, transperancy and peace?
Said I : yes, but…………………………….
Flag: What is that but……………………..Your guilty conscience pricks you –am I right?
Said I in a guilty voice: Yes and no! I don’t know whether today I have any conscience left with me at all!
FLAG emphatically said and began to flutter in the air majestically: Time has come to think and act as a Nation lest the efforts of the great freedom fighters will go waste and you will have no redemption. .

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM PART 21 ( VOC BIRTH DAY-5th September)

 

For long freedom fighters in thousands sacrificed all
Mahatmaji gave guidance and inspiration tall
All parts of the country contributed in great measure
Not a little of grudging and grumbling with pleasure!

From the South was born a soul noble known as V O C
On fifth of September eighteen seventy two-crazy
Disciple of Bal Gangadar Tilak—great leader
VOC known as Kappalottiya Thamizhan!

First to launch a shipping service – Tuticorin-Colombo
A member of the Indian National Congress
Later charged with sedition, sentenced life imprisonment
Barrister he was and his license was revoked with contempt!

 

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM PART 18

 

Bala Gangadhar Tilak’s Birth Day – 23rd July

The great Freedom Fighter Shri Bala Gangadhar Tilak was born on 23rd July 1856. As a mark of respect, is given hereunder the tributes by Mahakavi Bharathiyaar in Tamil and its English version.

Original in Tamil:

திலக முனிவர் கோன்.

நாம கட்குப் பெருந்தொண் டியற்றிப்பல்

நாட்டினோர்தம் கலையிலும் அவ்வவர்

தாம கத்து வியப்பப் பயின்றொரு

சாத்திரச் சுட லென்ன விளங்குவோன்

மாம கட்குப் பிறப்பிட மாகமுன்

வாழ்ந்திந் நாளில் வறண்டயர் பாரதப்

பூமகட்கு மனந்துடித் தேயிவன்

புன்மை  போக்குவன் என்ற விரதமே.                  (1)

 

நெஞ்ச கத்தோர்   கணத்திலும் நீங்கிலான்

நீத மேயோர் உருவெனத் தோன்றினான்

வஞ்ச கத்தைப் பகையெனக் கொண்டதை

மாய்க்கு மாறு மனத்திற் கொதிக்கின்றோன்;

துஞ்ச மட்டுமிப் பாரத நாட்டிற்கே

தொண்டிழைக்கத் துணிந்தவர் யாவரும்

அஞ்செ ழுத்தினைச் சைவர் மொழிதல்போல்

அன்பொ டோதும் பெயருடை யாரியன்.     (2)

 

வீர மிக்க மராராட்டியர் ஆதரம்

மேவிப் பாரத தேவி திருநுதல்

ஆர வைத்த திலகமெனத் திகழ்

ஐயன் நல்லிசைப் பாலகங் காதரன்,

சேர வர்க்கு நினைக்கவந் தீயென

நின்ற எங்கள் திலக முனிவர்கோன்

சீரடிக்கம லத்தினை வாழ்த்துவேன்

சிந்தை தூய்மை பெருகெனச் சிந்தித்தே.    (3)

TRANSLATION

ON TILAK KING

To Goddess of Learning he had service a lot

Rendered and mastered other nation’s art

The great masters were struck with awe;

Verily he indeed is the ocean of sastric knowledge

Our Motherland Bharath- where the Goddess was born

Unfortunate has gone desert barren

Heart-sore at her plight, Tilak took upon himself

And vowed tho drive the meanness away through self!          (1)

 

He indeed is enshrined in the heart of our holy land

Embodiment of justness and greatness abound

An eternal foe of deception ignoble

Filled with rage and anger righteous-noble.

Those with the resolve to serve our home land

Hold strong this Aryan’s name and chant

Till they live, serve and breathe their last

In love as Saivites repeat sacred name of the Lord!          (2)

 

Beloved are the Marathi heroes

To Bharatha Matha who wears the Tilak

Like that very Tilak is he, tha famed and praised

Bal Gangadhar Tilak- the emperor like

A flaming fire is he to the people hostile

Our Tilak, the peerless Prince of Saints

I adore his lotus feet glorious on earth

That I may be blessed in my Thoughts ever in birth!                          (3)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RAJAJI’S BIRTH DAY IS TOMORROW 9/12.

In the middle with dark glasses and walking stick speaking to Nehruji is Rajaji. 

India that is Bharath has given birth to stalwarts several
Who by their nobility and knowledge, dedication in total
And devotion have served the people and country enormously sure
The Nation to be ever proud of as their intentions was pure!

Under the great Father of the Nation, millions of people
Irrespective of caste and creed, language and religion with scruple
Won the war of independence-in a non violent manner
To the great delight of the world all over without any scanner!

One such great leader was Chakravarthi Rajagopalachari
From the far South Tamilnadu- acclaimed as Chanakya-
Governor General of India he was and guided the destiny
A superb scholar, speaker and writer whose birth day is tomorrow!

GANDHI JAYANTHI DAY-OCTOBER SECOND.

Holiest day in a year is tomorrow-GANDHI JAYANTHI DAY
Great Father of our sacred Motherland- India that is Bharath-Way
Ahead of many world countries in aspects several thanks to his vision
Whose unceasing efforts and unparalleled leadership guided with a mission!

The whole nation owes for eternity its gratitude and respect great.
Unfortunate that the murderer of that great soul is sought to be honored
With statues and books on the wretched; no redemption for the ungrateful;
On this day sacred and holy, let us resolve to uphold Gandhism-be redeemed!

Truth and non-violence when adopted as solution for all evils
Peace and harmony will rule the Society and throw away all ills.
Sure not theoretical or bookish but was demonstrated by him
Hail that great Mahatma- revered by the world around, our minds trim!

HINDI DAY WAS 14/9/2016.

Image result for Images of Bharatha Matha..

‘Language’ a medium of communication wonderful
Gifted by Goddess of Learning, refined by man beautiful
Days were there- years millions ago-no language was known
Communication through signs and actions- no seeds were sown!

Evolution of the humans brought languages bye and bye,
More and more all over the world- six thousand five hundred plus
One thousand three hundred and forty eight in India great
Of which people speaking Hindi is the most-millions vast!

Two hundred and fifty three-declared national language,
Rightly-knowledge is power-of language a greater
Rich in grammar and literature deserves to be learnt
Let us learn and make others learn for the sake of language!
