MIGRATED BIRDS

S.Nivetha,

12/2045, Jivan Bima Nagar, Chennai 600101

 

Flamingos migrated to Pulicot sanctuary

 

Poem 1

Migration a great boon by the Almighty

Indeed a great balancing act by God through nature

Going from place to place in search of one’s needs

Regularly year after year in the seasons right

All through the brain and wing power by the birds

Though human beings do migrate greater extent

Eternal migration of birds every year miles and miles

Delightful sights for humans to watch in bird sanctuaries!

 

Beautiful falcons flying thousands of miles to Pulicat

In Andhra Pradesh and other States in India great

Regularity is the God granted wisdom

Daring birds from country to country far, far away

Sure Almighty is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent!

 

Thoughtful theme for the Festival

Highly inspiring first timers like me

Ever grateful to Perugu uncle and all others

Many, many heartful thanks to the audience here

Ever will remain green in my mind for years!

 

I am an acrostic lover. First letter of each line reads

“MIGRATED BIRDS THEME”.

 

Poem 2

 

Migration is a natural process for birds to travel miles

In order to find ecological condition for the young-it flies

Grounds for breeding becomes difficult due to low temperature

Rarely birds fly to their destination non- stop in its course

Along with their earth’s magnetic field- they orient!

The phenomenon of bird migration is inspired by humans

Olive branch in its beak a dove returned Noah at the end of the flood

Rebirth of nature and arrival of spring are announced by birds

Yes, knowledge of migration has important role in the eco system!

 

Birds of different feathers migrate so sensibly

In the world in which they are created by the Almighty

Raise awareness on the threads faced by migratory birds

Delightful indeed is the strength of will power unheard

Such is the creation of the Omnipotent and Omniscient!

Down below is a great Group Photo of the participating poets with the organizers and the Chief Guest.

I  always admire the poetry festivals from Andhra Pradesh! There are poets bubbling with poetic quest,  poetry interest  and poetic skills. Vijayawada, Guntur, Nellore, Vishakapatnam, Hyderabad are celebrating poetry festivals in their own magnificent manner,bringing out Poetry Anthologies periodically! Poetry is ingrained in them! After all what is POETRY?

Literary work in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given intensity by the use of distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature.
One feels a desire to investigate through poetry the subjects of pain and death”
Various dimensions:
Versification,
Metrical composition
rhyming
balladry
poesy
Parnassus
  • a quality of beauty and intensity of emotion regarded as characteristic of poems.
    “poetry and fire are nicely balanced in the music”
  • omething regarded as comparable to poetry in its beauty.
    “the music department is housed in a building which is pure poetry”!
    All Poetry Festivals inspire the poets to get trained and improve the standard and quality of their poems. I feel I am greatly benefited and as such grateful to the organizers.
    The proud blogger presenting his poem in English and Tamil:

08 JANUARY-NATIONAL WINTER SKIN RELIEF DAY

Image result for national winter skin relief day

If rainy season comes can winter be far behind-modified Shelly
If winter comes can winter skin troubles be far behind-never
January Eighth today is National Winter Skin Relief Day has arrived
To  remind us of all the ways we can keep our skin from withering
Under the harshest of elements. The dropping temperatures outside
And rising thermostats inside sap the amount of moisture in the air.
Our skin is first to notice. to help us keep our skin hydrated through the winter.

When the chill sets in, let us  avoid  long, hot showers.
The heat strips skin of its natural oils  and causes inflammation.
Causing the skin cells to swell, when they dry they become loose
Like poorly grouted tiles and crack.Let us  take shorter, lukewarm showers
And use gentle cleansers. Harsh soaps with surfactants and can be harsh
On the skin. And don’t scrub! Be tender and let the water and lather do the work.

After bathing, let us pat the skin dry with a soft towel. Rubbing causes
More irritation And inflammation. With the door closed to keep the humidity in,
Let us add a moisturizer.Let us be aware and protect our skin in winter!

VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part 26

This week’s Sunday story in Envius Thoughts carries the VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS where we have been giving the views of our regular viewer and commentator Shri OKR Sivagnanam who was my colleague in the great Public Sector Undertaking – Life Insurance Corporation of India, which I proudly served for four decades and more. Shri Sivagnanam is regular in viewing ENVIUS THOUGHTS and sharing with a review thereon on a day today basis. It is a matter of delight that he is as enthusiastic in viewing and reviewing as I am in posting! -religiously meticulous! Kindly read and enjoy this Part 26 –TWENTY SIX . Here we have covered his Reviews up to date.
11.
O K R Sivagnanam commented on DELIGHTED HOLY VIEWER – IS 28*
I got back to the Archives of your blog, and I’m right!
You got the ‘like’ for the post made by you on August 6, from the Saint Syed Waheed Ashraf, dedicated to none other than HIMSELF under the Saints and Seers Series!
It is thus evidenced that you have the unflinching support, guidance and grace from the religious gurus -alive and from the heavenly abode- all of whom make your ENVIUS THOUGHTS a resounding success!
A nice achievement!

2.

on November 5th WORLD TSUNAMI DAY

World Tsunami Day – your post today highlights awareness to be created to escape from its impact on all living beings!

Nature at its peril when man transgresses it for his selfish needs on this earth – Tsunami is one among the natural calamities posed as challenges to face!

A valuable lesson nature imparts through its ‘attitude’ – nature uses as little as possible of anything!

Our exploiting nature changes the original track, forcing nature to turn violent and ferocious and do the damage!

Awareness and action will provide the remedy in situations wherever we are confronted with nature’s fury!
3
 on ONION IS NOT OXYGEN!

Nice of reposting today as Sunday Story, the post titled ‘Onion is not Oxygen’, that found a place in the Open Page of The Hindu on 31st August, 2013!

In fact, the resistance we show against what are all troubling the people is not strong enough to make them convince of their concern for the society and resist from repeating it!

The will to desist from buying what is overpriced definitely will yield the desired result!

Only the people can do this to effectively deal with the issue – the government machinery can at best give the guidelines, and monitor the situation for correction!

4.

 on BOOK LOVERS DAY November 2nd.

Nice to read your post on Book Lovers Day!

Books provide food for thought -the kind of food even taken in excess that harms not the taker with problems like indigestion!

Varieties they make available to the readers – the real feast incomparable with a feast full of mouth-watering dishes served on the plate, that satiates our fiery hunger so soon!

A large-scale provider of knowledge, learning, and understanding on subjects varied and unnumbered!

An effective tool in the wise hands of a lover that performs miracles in ecstatically spending time in private without having to disturb others!

A companion par excellence, never to part with – a sort of relationship that a hand enjoys with the glove!

A happy Book Lovers Day to all and enjoy devouring as many books as you can – without saturation!

5

 on RAINY DAYS!

A nice post on Rainy Days!

Elixir of life- it’s rain!

You have elaborated on its supremacy, taking Thiruvalluvar with you to drive home the point effectively!

How starving we become when rains fail us season after season!

All living beings go without food when the land becomes barren and fails to provide the food requirements!

It’s rainy season in Tamil Nadu, and people’s hope will never go shattered, thanks to the heavy pouring we are now being blessed with!

6

on HALLOWEEN DAY-October 31st

Your post today on Halloween Day, nicely dedicated to the departed souls!

A day to think of those who laid their lives in the cause of people!

A day to remember the religious gurus who had their preachings left for the humankind to survive!

A day to remember the dead who made a difference in our lives, directly or indirectly!

A day to recollect the past remnant with all the good deeds emanated from our well-wishers- close and distant as well!

And it’s nice that children are celebrating the occasion dressing like devils and the like to symbolise the dead, of course with fun and amusement- and it’s good that they are fittingly taught to honour the departed elders this day, possibly taking their lives as an example to emulate with!

Happy Halloween’s Day!

7

on WORLD STROKE DAY- October 29th

It’s most relevant that we have had a post from you on World Stroke Day today!

Stroke has mostly to do with irrelevant lifestyle habits we are accustomed to, like intake of wrong foods and lack of at least a minimum of physical work-out in our daily routine!
This aspect we can easily understand and modify accordingly to set things right!
But factors such as age and family history with stroke and other heart-related conditions are of course not our making, but this situation calls for little adjustments here and there by which we can postpone its arrival and minimize the impact!

Prevention is the key that actually is in our hands to wisely avoid the problem!

8

on PETS ARE PETS-CHILD, GINGER AND BIRDS!

Thanks for your second post today – on Pets are Pets……!

Love and affection, and care and attention they receive at the hands of their owners is comparable with those received by the near and dear ones of their blood relatives!

How fortunate they are to continuous enjoying the affinity from their proud owners!

The degree to which this much of what we may call ‘craze’ they attract from the pet keepers is many a times evident from the pain and agony experienced due to the pet’s unfortunate demise!

Glory to the pet owners!

9

on GOVARDHAN PUJA- October 28th.

A nice post on Govardhan Puja today!

We are indebted to Geethopadesam for the life lessons given by Lord Krishna through Arjuna in the battlefield!

All religious texts too aim to preach people to facilitate smooth journey in their life!

It’s for us to apply the principles wherever necessary and try to mend ourselves!

on FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Part II

தீபாவளிக் கவிதை இனிமையாக இருந்தது.

வாழ்த்துக்கள்.

on FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Part II

Nice to read your second part of the Festival of Lights!

The day to enlighten us on the need to give good-bye to all the NEGATIVES and welcome nothing but POSITIVES to embrace us!

Let this thought take full command and bring inner light to actually brighten the outer world!

12

on FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS! Part I

Nice description of the Festival of Lights in Part 1!

Nice of you having brought out historic stories around this great festival called Deepawali!

A good occasion to start new things, keeping in view of all the nice incidents that go with the celebration of Deepawali!

May this festival bring peace, prosperity and happiness to all!

13.

on WORLD POLIO DAY-24th October

Your World Polio Day post – nicely dedicated to eradication of polio from our midst!

How cruel it’s to see children incapacitated due to this deadly condition called polio, at a time when they will like to go all go out and enjoy the company of their friends through playing and rejoicing!

A great program it’s indeed that the government periodically conducts immunization camps throughout the length and breadth of the country to root out polio altogether!

Let us see a world free of polio, and children at their usual selves as usual!

14

on UNITED NATIONS DAY-October 24th

A nice post on United Nations Day!

A great idea behind the launch of United Nations Organization – that of unifying the nations of the world for a cause beneficial to all!

Different agendas notwithstanding, world peace is a must for the nations to carry out economic activities to better the quality of life of global population!

Integrity of member states to this organisation, federal in nature, is a precursor to the attainment of goals in the larger interest of people!

May the world leaders give a thought to this aspect and facilitate prosperity and harmony everywhere!

15

on ENVIRONMENT-CLEAN AND CLEAR? Part V

Nice to read your post on Environment- Clean and Clear – Part5!

A good environ around us produces a soothing effect on the quality of life we enjoy!

Filthy surroundings make one’s life miserable, and joy and happiness leaves us forever!

Lack of hygienic conditions render people’s lives second-rated- despised by all visiting the place!

Government and the people should come together in working out a suitable plan that takes care of all the nuances connected with maintenance of environment, and pave the way for a healthy life for all!

16

on ENVIRONMENT -CLEAN AND CLEAR? Part IV

It’s nice of Part 4 of your post on Environment – Clean and Clear!

Symbolically we consume junk food and digest too to reveal our environment strewn with junk everywhere!

Is it our abilty to assimilate nature’s degradation that allows us to consider environmental problems, we are confronted wirh, a casual occurrence of no substance, requiring no intervention?

Surely it’s awareness followed by concrete action that’s going to solve this menacing issue of spoiled environment!

It at all there’s a wealth that we are going to hand over to our descendants, it’s no doubt a healthy environment!

Let us spare everything possible from our side and make environment user- friendly for all living beings!

17

on Police Commemoration Day-October 21st

Nice to read your post on Police Commemoration Day!

Police personnel are friends of the common people who get timely service from them!

They act in the face of difficulties and threat from the bad elements wo are responsible for violence that results in loss of peace to society!

Now, with advancement in technology there’s an increase in the number of cyber crimes, calling for specialised knowledge and ability to deal with such cases!

The sacrifices they make in maintaining law and order render them indispensable to the machinery of the government that looks after the welfare of people!

As dutiful citizens, we should lend our support to the police and make their job easy!

18

on MISSION SUNDAY October 20th.

A nice post on Mission Sunday as Sunday Story!

A post that reminds one of the need to serve the poor and the less privileged especially by the rich and philanthropists across the world!

A post that goes to enhance the missionary zeal of the people to take care of the people who have none to look after!

A post that emphasizes on joy and happiness, peace and prosperity that everyone is after in this life on earth!

A post that calls for readiness to make donations to a centrally – administered pool that caters to the people according to their level of genuine expectations!

A post that exhorts to eschew the sufferings and pain of humankind!

Let us shun violence and stand for peace!

19

on ENVIRONMENT -CLEAN AND CLEAR? Part III

A good read!

We acquire knowledge,
We learn things,
We miserably fail to practice!
That’s why environment doesn’t get our due respect and care, resulting in its degradation!
Blaming population rise is an excuse well eschewed for protection of nature as it is!

Issues confronting the environment lack our timely approach and action that makes it choke and suffocate, finding it hard to breathe naturally!

We are strangulating nature and out to bury it forgetting that humanity will be the target of attack!

We are making our own grave, and allow us dropped into it as if willingly!

Neglect of nature renders us the culprits and the victims too!

Let us be alive to the issues, and act positively to retrieve nature from the clutches of human greed!

20

on September 29th-WORLD HEART DAY.

A nice write-up with quotes relevant to drive home the point that heart health is a precursor to healthy life!

Wrong food habits coupled with lack of physical activity is the villain of the piece, and we have to change course to remedy the situation!

Prevention is better than cure, and so we should carefully select heart-healthy foods, avoiding too much fat and junk food which is responsible for heart diseases!

The stress and strain we create by ourselves in the course of our work schedule adds fuel to the fire, and we voluntarily aid in creating a conducive atmosphere for heart diseases to afflict us!

The problem is not about awareness on heart problems, but it’s our reluctance to follow what we are taught!

Thus we end this week’s Sunday Story and we shall see as usual tomorrow morning. Till then GOOD BYE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KING OF TAMIL POETS’ DAY-December 11th.

Image result for Image of Bharathiyar

King of Tamil poetry Mahakavi Bharathiyar’s Day is today
Born on this holy day in Eighteen Eighty Two years hundred
And thirty seven ago! I present this poem in Tamil today
In his memorial place where he lived in Triplicane Chennai.

எத்தனை கோடி இன்பம்!

இன்பமும் துன்பமும் இணைத்தே வைத்தாய்
என்றும் ஒருவர்க்கு முழுமையாய்
இன்பம் உண்டோ
துன்பமே உண்டோ?
இரண்டும் கலந்ததே இனிய வாழ்க்கை
மிரண்டு விட்டால் வாழ்வே இல்லை. (6)
இன்பம் கண்டு எகிரிக் குதிப்பதும்
துன்பம் கண்டு துவண்டு விழுதலும்
வேண்டாம் என்பதே இறைவன் கட்டளை.
கட்டளைக்குப் பணிந்தால்
நட்டமில்லை, இலாபம் உண்டு
அமைதி கிடைக்கும், மகிழ்வுண்டாகும் (12)
பெருமை சேரும், சிறுமை அகலும்.
பொறுமை வளரும், பொறாமை நீங்கும்.
எத்தனை கோடி இன்பம் வைத்தாய் இறைவா?
என்றே கேட்டான் எம் பாரதிப் பெருமான் (16)
நன்றே பாடினான் எம் சாரதிப் பெருந்தகை!
இத்தனைக் கோடி இன்பங்கள் உண்டோ
இறைவன் படைப்பில் அனைத்துமே இன்பமோ?
இயற்கையில் இன்பம், செயற்கையில் இன்பம் (20)
இன்பமும் துன்பமும் மனத்தின் விளைவே
பண்படுத்துவோம் நம் மனந்தனையே
இயற்கை தந்த இன்பங்கள் கோடியும்
கரங்களில் தவழும் என்பது உறுதியே! (24)
In English
HOW MANY BILLIONS ARE THE JOYS!
Joys and sorrows together you have created
Will be ever totally to any one
Joys or
Sorrows?
Life of Joys and Sorrows sweet life!
If one is afraid of there is no life at all.
Jumping with joy on joys and
Get deeply despaired on sorrows
Not needed is God’s command.
If command obeyed
No loss but gains are many.
One gets peace, happiness
Dignity sparkles, meanness exits.
Patience blossoms, jealousy exits.
“How many billions the joys Thou has created”
So asked Bharathi, king of Tamil poets.
Beautifully composed our noble Bharathi.
Are there billions of joys?
In HIS creation are all only joys?
Joy in nature Joy in action,
Joys and Sorrows making of the mind
Let us nurture our mind
Joys nature has gifted
Will be on our hands assured!
