SUBRAMANIA SIVA Day-23rd July.

SubramaniyaSiva.jpg

Blessed is my holy Motherland-India that is Bharath
Gave birth to several, several noble souls who made a mark
In East and West, North and South -who served the Nation so well
Their names will be remembered eternally by grateful Nation!

Subramaniya Siva was one such noble souls who joined
The freedom movement in nineteen not eight! Born in Batlagundu
In Tamil Nadu, entered the Heaven on twenty third July
Ninety three years ago in nineteen twenty five -leprosy.

Arrested in nineteen not eight- first political prisoner
In Madras jail; afflicted by leprosy, transferred to Salem
The British feared leprosy is contagious on release
Not allowed to travel in train-had to walk all the way back home.

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.

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!

V O Chidambaram Pillai

In continuation of yesterday’s post, here is the reply to Lord Winch by the patriot V O Chidambaram Pillai as written by Bharathiyar in Tamil and its English translation by me.

தேசபக்தர் சிதம்பரம் பிள்ளை மறுமொழி.

 

சொந்த நாட்டிற் பரர்க்கட்ரிமை செய்தே

துஞ்சிடோம் – இனி- அஞ்சிடோம்

எந்த நாட்டினும் இந்த அநீதிகள்

ஏற்குமோ? – தெய்வம் பார்க்குமோ?

 

வந்தே மாதரம் என்றுயிர் போம்வரை

வாழ்த்து வோம்; – முடி – தாழ்த்துவோம்;

எந்த மாறுயி ரன்னையைப் போற்றுதல்

ஈன மோ?: – அவமனமோ?

 

பொழுதெல்லாம் எங்கள் செல்வம் கொள்ளை கொண்டு

போகவோ? – நாங்கள் –சாகவோ?

அழுது கொண்டிருப் போமோ? ஆண்பிள்ளைகள் நாங்கள்

அல்லமோ – உயிர்  – வெல்லமோ?

 

நாங்கள் முப்பது கோடி ஜனங்களும்

நாய்களோ ? – பன்றிச் –சேய்களோ?

நீங்கள் மட்டும் மனிதர்களோ? இது

நீத மோ? – பிடி – வாதமோ?

 

பார தத்திடை அன்பு செலுத்துதல்

பாப மோ? – மனஸ் – தாபமோ?

கூறும் எங்கள் மிடிமையைத் தீர்ப்பது

குற்ற மோ? – இதில் – செற்றமோ?

 

ஒற்றுமை வழி யொன்றே வழியென்பது

ஓர்ந்திட்டோம்; நன்கு தேர்ந்திட்டோம்;

மற்று நீங்கள் செய்யுங்கொடு மைக்கெல்லாம்

மலைவு றோம்; – சித்தம் – கலைவுறோம்.

 

சதையைத் துண்டுதுண் டாக்கினும் உன்னெண்ணம்

சாயுமோ?: – ஜீவன் – ஓயுமோ

இதயத் துள்ளே இலங்கு மஹாபக்தி

ஏகுமோ? – நெஞ்சம் – வேகுமா?

 

IN ENGLISH:

 

Patriot VOC replies.

 

We are no  more slaves in our own land

No fear now onwards of any brand

No nation will accept this atrocity

Almighty cannot see this ferocity.

 

Till our lives we will raise the prayer

“vandhe maatharam” obeisance to Mother

Bowing our heads to our holy Mother

Is it a disgrace or lowly act to bother?

 

Are you the aliens to take our wealth,

All the day and all the way-are we to die?

Shedding tears for long for all your misdeeds

We are strong men folk-our life is not sugar indeed!

 

We all the thirty crores of Indians

Are we shameless dogs and  pigs?

Are you alone men folk on earth?

Is it not arrogance pure mirth?

 

To show love to our sacred Motherland

Is it a crime atrocious and enmity enormous?

Is it wrong to remove altogether our

Meekness and slavish mentality forever?

 

Unity alone is our path royal

We have understood and realized loyal

All your atrocities committed pure

We cannot accept and lose focus sure.

 

Even if our flesh is torn into pieces small

You will not be allowed to reach your goal.

Our lives in millions will not rest- we have

Faith in our heart cannot fail-goes strong!
