April 29th- International Dance Day

Lord Shiva as Nataraja

 

To me DANCE is DIVINE- the Lord Nataraja is the LORD OF DANCE!
May be Bharatha Natya, kathakkali, kuchipudi and similar arts!
Unfortunate today’s dances are just physical not spiritual, artistic
Not appealing to the senses and spirit -appeals only to body!

Today Twenty Ninth April is International Dance Day  a global
Celebration of dance, created by the Dance Committee of the
IInternational Theatre Institute,  partner for the performing arts
Of UNESCO. The  anniversary of the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre
The creator of modern ballet. day is to encourage participation
And education in dance through events and festivals held  all over the world.

Ancient art is dance- a great culture built it
Modern and medieval, eastern and western hit
In India revered as -natya kala -divinity
Lord Shiva in HIS dance- a part of trinity!

Envius Thoughts – Page 82 – by NV Subbaraman -“NVSR's ENVIUS ...

Today is neither a Sunday nor it is  1950th post to be called   Sunday Story in Envius Thoughts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Today it is Saturday and it is 1951st Post.  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 tomorrow the 19th April on GARLIC- cousin brother of ONION!

1908 days are over since the Blog was launched on 25th February 2015  and today’s post is 1951 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 SATUR DAY STORY instead of usual SUNDAY STORY!

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

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

The whole world is flooded with CORONA VIRUS and it is several days we see the peoplewalking or biking on the roads!

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,

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 is 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 , palce like hotels or roadside ones! 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 anything 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 third MAY no getting out of home – likely to be extended again and again!

 

I do hope that this Saturday story TALE OF THE BLOGGER Part 39 would have been interesting. Tomorrow Sunday Story as hinted will take us to GARLIC the cousin brother of ONION!! Till then Bye!

 

WORLD HERITAGE DAY - SGTB Public School

 

Heritage is the wealth handed over from generations to
Generations in all parts of the world to be taken care of!
April eighteenth today is World Heritage Day all over the globe!

Every year, International Day for Monuments and Sites,
Proposes a theme;  of Shared Cultures, Shared Heritage, Shared
Responsibility important in the  present worldwide health crisis.

We have  to explore the idea of sharing—and its counterpoints,
Contestation and resistance—in cultures, heritage and responsibility.
Given the current global outbreak of Covid-Nineteen and
Containment measures in different countries around the world,
Let us take care of all the monuments- our precious heritage
Humans or nature not to cause any damage minor or major!

Volunteering for any good cause is gradually on the wane
In the fast food days everyone is concerned with one’s own!
Here is a day today Fifth December International Volunteer Day
To make me conscious of volunteering to be of assistance to all!

International Volunteer Day desired by the United Nations
General Assembly, is  viewed as a unique chance for volunteers and Organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and
To promote their work among their communities, non-governmental Organizations, United Nations agencies,  and the private sector.
Programme contributes to peace and development by advocating
For the recognition of volunteers and working with partners to integrate
Volunteerism into development programming. Great objective indeed-great.

The diverse and dynamic role of volunteerism in promoting the Sustainable Development Goals merits strong support from Governments and other stakeholders. On this International Day, I thank volunteers for their efforts to leave no one behind. Secretary General’s gratitude expressed.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres

Theaters galore- Cinema,  Drama  and  Operation Theaters
Today it is WORLD THEATERS DAY- theaters for plays-Dramas
We have to save the very planet earth and therefore  ‘theater’.
The arts of the actor and the arts of live performance  be made
Available to children in primary ages and this generation will,
Be sensitive to the righteousness of life and nature!

Drama Theater is not make shift and  imaginary  as cinema is.
Script, direction and action are more practical than cinema
May be much less harmful to mother earth and other planets.
“Theatre’ will become more important for  the retention and
Sustenance of life itself; to empower the live performer
And the spectator without threatening each other in  togetherness.!
Theatre to facilitate  at grass root level, rural and urban all.
On this day very important let us resolve to encourage drama theater.

At the political level with Heads of State and Ministers of Health,
And community leaders and people affected with TB, civil society
Advocates, health workers, doctors and nurses, non-Government Organizations
And other partners. All can be leaders of efforts to end TEEBEE!

In those days it was used to be sited as a major reason
