Nice to have brought out the patriotism held dearly by Nethaji and his own way which was completely at variance with Gandhiji’s in the freedom movement against the British, despite the goal remaining the same, namely independence for our Motherland!

Wish we had such leaders in our midst remaining as entities with excusive general welfare of people behind every one of their actions!

Now we need to charge ourselves with sentiments that drove the freedom struggle in a spirited way to help enable the flow of benefits of political freedom as anticipated by the freedom fighters!

19/08/19-2

A nice concept that doesn’t sacrifice quality, though there’s an offer in place to sell products at a subsidised value on this day in USA!

We in India too have such attractive offers from the businesses frequently, but most of the time we feel we had been cheated after finding out the discrepancy between what we were delivered and what we were promised!

The purpose of this day is thus defeated by the traders’ casual approach, with the buyers losing the value for their money in the process!

Long live our hard-won freedom, with us justifying it through exhibition of our concern for the nation in every step we make in our journey aimed at overall development!

19/08/19 3

We’re overburdened with stress due to routine interaction with people on a daily basis, and unless we are relieved from their clutch, we are bound to make our lives miserable and unworthy of living!A nice post to read!

Either we have to get rid of the monotony by ourselves voluntarily taking breaks in between by diversion through engagement with activities different from the routine, or to take a route via listening to jokes cracked by our well wishers and strangers too!

After all, everyone of us is after happiness, and so we should judiciously  make use of the opportunities coming our way to make our life enjoyable!

18/08/19

A feast to the stomach-full!

How true it’s to call poetry the language of the soul – the soul reflecting exactly what is inside of it for the readers and listeners to sit on the table and savour to their heart’s content – it cannot therefore be bad!

Madras Nalla Madras – nicely written by you and Nivetha!

Chennaites would never enjoy places other than Madras – it’s too enticing to escape their presence there – for, east or west, home’s best!

Poetry by a group of participating poets including yourself – a compound and mixture – a recipe qualifying as a mixture and compound catering to the taste buds of all!

The subject matter of a poetry – uniqueness is its essence – makes the poem beautiful, with them wearing the garb of proper texture and scintillating hues that cannot go attracted by the lovers of poetry!

Long live the poets to come out with their souls finding a sure expression through their imaginative powers in full action!

06/08/19

Nice to read the above post!

We are a secular nation, and co-existence of people with perfect harmony despite prevalence of different faiths is made possible!

The saints and seers coming of different religions propagate right messages to the people, and make them realize the futility of violence as a method to achieve their selfish ends!

If the rulers singularly concentrate on efforts to bring in a society free of turbulence in their daily lives, the economic development of our motherland is sure to follow!

This is what the priority should be before the saints in the larger interest of the masses!
06/08/19 2
Nice post on Forgiveness Day!

Forgetfulness and Forgiveness are necessary virtues we should imbibe to keep the relationships moving in the right direction!

Overloading us with remnants of past that might have soured our feelings will take away the sheen of life!

Two tools in our armory that readily fight the consequences of the dreaded brooding we are used to!

Zero tolerance is what often an enemy within us posing as a challenge to our thriving cordial relationships!

The one and the only panacea is our readiness to adopt forgetfulness and forgiveness as a way of life!

04/08/19

It’s very nice of Mr. Venkata Krishna to have liked your daily posts, and come up with a selected portion thereon on a daily basis!

Congrats to him!

02/08/19

A nice post in the series, ‘saints and seers!’

Their mission is simply great and laudable!

Removed far from the material aspects of life, their purpose is centred around spiritualism, and they go all out and see how best they can guide the masses on righteous path!

Gita is a striking example to show how man should approach everyday life , and Dayanand Saraswati’s usual discourse would have been beneficial to the devotees who heard him regularly!

01/08/19

A nice read!

An adventurous feat many would like to try and succeed!

As is found in the post, will power plays a dominant role in completing the task successfully!

Aside from it, an overwhelming interest in climbing to reach the peak adds determination to the act!

An abode of saints and seers from where they practice simplified living and penance to drive home their messages to the people who are on the road to spiritual development!

Living and life around mountains is an experience sought to be achieved in the midst of nature!

1/07/10

Thank you very much for the above post as this week’s Sunday Story!

Turning back, I find, I’ve come a long way!

Also I’m aware, I’ve miles to go before I sleep, and I’m sure I’ll!

31/07/19 2

A good read!

When we think of trees, what instantly comes to our mind is the tangible benefits we get from them!

Intangible ones are invaluable, and they provide solutions to what we are confronted with, namely the most generalised GLOBAL WARMING posing as a challenge of gigantic proportions!

Erratic climate is a global phenomenon attracting environmentalists and nature lovers across the world nations to assemble frequently to talk of the permanent remedies to tide over this phase gradually but steadily!

It’s the common man’s problem affecting their everyday life in many ways than one – ever keeping their fingers crossed, baffling the mankind just as one groping in the dark to locate something non-existent!

It seems so, but wisdom within us will straight away tick the correct answer, one that drives us to plant as much trees as possible, and to nourish and nurture them as if our babies that require motherly care and attention!

30/07/19

The title of your post today led me to guess it must be the day you were born – and it’s rightly so!

No one can believe what you are saying about yourself that you are a burden to this earth- you’ve achieved a lot and nothing stands against you in achieving more in future!

Your potential is great, and you’re characteristic of bringing it to the fore without losing any portion of it!

May the Almighty be with you in translating your passion for writing into  many more ‘creations’ for your followers to view, read, and enjoy!

29/07/19

Nice to go through your series on saints and seers, including one on the above!

This takes me back to my childhood days when in the month of Margazhi every year there was virtual ‘competition’ between the likes of me in carrying the portrait of Andal followed by the procession of bhajan performers made along the circuitous main road in my native village in Coimbatore district!

VIEWER’S VIEW PART 24

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 24. Here we have covered his Reviews up to date.

21/07/19
CHandrayaan II on the Poetic Orbit
Nice description of Chandrayan Poetic Festival on 13th July at Nellur to mark the launch of Chandraayan 2 at Sriharikota!
Your poetry on Moon and Chandrayaan in Tamil and its English translation is a nice read!
The very mention of the word ‘moon’ takes us back to our childhood days when mothers used to point at the distant moon while feeding us!
Wishes to the organisers of the event and the poets from different parts of the country who rendered beautiful poems on the occasion!
In the absence of scientific development during those days, we were appealing to the moon to come over here, and grace the children in particular, making their ‘eating mission’ possible and successful too!
As mentioned by you in the poem, now we are called upon to visit the moon, thanks to the advanement made in satellite technology through the efforts of scientists across the world!
Kudos to the organisers for creating an awareness on the project by the Department of Space!

20/07/19
SWAMI CHIDBHAVANANDA
Leaving aside material comforts to embrace spirituality and lead a simple life is something rare, which only a handful will dare to embark!
Setting an example by really practicing what one preaches is the surest path others can choose, set foot and move relentlessly towards the goalpost!
There’s no space for hypocrisy here, and beauty lies in truthfulness to the core!
This is what great saints and seers stood for in their life, and guided the masses in darkness to come out of the ignorance that held them tight and motionless!
19/07/19
HLY-CLOSING!
What after all a literary activity has anything to do with ‘closing of accounts,’ one may wonder, including myself!
Assets and liabilities are matters connected with a business organization, and you, having had a long stint in Life Insurance Corporation of India, are naturally concerned with what comes in and what goes out as a suitable method to determine the ‘standing’ of your blog vis a vis the viewers’ number!
It’s nothing but a legitimate introspection on your part well attempted to analyze for any shortcomings, IF ANY!
You’re now credited with the WORLD ICON AWARD, which in fact will surge the numbers still further to make you happy and comfortable in taking the ‘mission’ farther!
After all, it’s faith and hope that acts through ups and downs in one’s life, and balancing is adequately and effectively  done in the end!
19/07/19
Tale of a Blogger 33
A nice Saturday Story!
I’m astonished at the number of awards and rewards you’ve amassed since the start of your famous blog since Feb 2015, and those that you’re going to get shortly as mentioned!
I’m happy to find, you’re leading your retired life as busily as you were wont while serving the mammoth organisation in various capacities spanning four decades!
Your literary pursuit cannot but be a gift of the Almighty to keep you ever engaged peacefully and usually at that!
Your burning desire to improve your blogging activity, subsequent to your reported anxiety at the dwindling number of viewers, will indeed have its still more positive impact on your ‘productions’ in the days to come!
May your appeal to the rain God open up the sky and overwhelm the people, not only in Chennai but in all places anticipating the rains too, with abundant shower and help in tiding over the crisis without further loss of time!
19/07/19
Abdul Rehman
What a great soul to have wished for the the love not only among the humans but also all living beings and other inanimate creations of the Super Power!
An atmosphere of peace heralds the welfare of society in all aspects of life, and it cannot be a wishful thinking if all the stakeholders have the mind and heart to make it happen!
We’re having the guidelines to proceed, but what prevents us from sticking to the principles and making a righteous society a possibility is enigmatic!
May we introspect and move on the right lines!
19/07/19
Chandra Sekharendra Saraswathy.
One more saint on the spiritual plane right from early age to benefit the society with philosophical messages!
Notwithstanding the great number of saints and seers that the world has witnessed, we are still in the midst of wrongdoers inflicting harm on the innocent people whose number increases by the day!
Hope we’re relieved of pain and suffering to enjoy peace and happiness!
Very interesting to know your grandfather’s ‘encounter’ with the Acharya!
19/07/19
Sri Aurobindo
Ascending to spiritualism from politics – a rare occurrence, but natural to Aurobindo!
A multi-faceted personality acquiring divinity in the service of humanity!
Followers from far and wide across the world thronging the Ashram in his name standing living testimony to the ultimate realization attained by Aurobindo!
His teachings to inspire the people to live as one should in this earth characterized by materialistic approach to life!
18/07/19
Alaudddin Sabir Kaliyar
Many rise to sainthood in their later part of life, but one among those who are attracted to spiritualism in early childhood is Alauddin Sabir Kaliyari!
A gift indeed that realization of God to such of those great souls comes at an age when they are not supposed to be aware of, say, what’s happening around them on the ‘material’ plane!
17/07/19
Mir Mukhtar Akyar
A nice post on Mir Mukhtar that proves the secular credentials of our Motherland!
What is the religion the saint or the seer belongs to doesn’t matter, but what they emphasize that’s going to benefit the masses matters most to us!
They insist on us acquiring noble values that helps in growing humanism within and extending our helping hand to the needy!
What else on earth we’re going to achieve during the short sojourn we are ordained to live here?
16/07/19
Friend of the Poor Chief Minister
A nice post on the great son of India, Pandidji, and the enviable Chief Minister, Kamaraj ji, we had for our State!
It’s all a thing of the past, and wish to have such great leaders to occupy the seat of power and serve the people!
May we rise tomorrow to witness the likes of these two personalities to guarantee welfare of the nation and its subjects!
16/07/19
Sanatana Goswami
Nice elaboration on the guru!
We are in darkness out of ignorance and we may come out of its grip through the ideas and guidelines, seers and saints born on this earth provide us – sometimes with ways readily prescribed, failing which, it’s for us to derive the remedy by research into the subtle suggestions they make!
They are born great with a purpose to deliver what the ignorant human being yearns for in crossing over the hurdles and finally reaching the destination opted for!
14/07/19
JAGAN ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS
Nice reproduction of Mr. Jagan’s comments on your posts!
The advantage of a feedback lies in refinement of the matter dealt with!
Hope you’re benefitted!
Wishing your literary journey with milestones many on its way!
13/07/19
Advaita Acharya
An exponent of Bhagavad Gita well depicted!
Do your duty without expecting the reward – a lesson we must learn to remain a satisfied lot irrespective of the fruits we get in return!
Train the mind to remain steadfast in the principles you set for yourself – habitual it  becomes to bring surprises in life!
13/07/19
Jillela mudi Amma
Different are those great souls ever on the mission to make their sojourn on this earthly abode smooth and purposeful!
Feeding the hungry – a virtue to become a habit in all humans who can afford, out of their ‘material prosperity’ and ‘richness of mind!’
Nothing good or bad exists in this world, but only ‘perception’ of these two extremes that’s behind us playing foul with our otherwise innocent lives!
Yes, innocence brings cheer to everyone of us, and so may we embrace it, and allow an air of happiness to spread its fragrance in our midst!
13/07/19
AKHI SIRAJ
A good going on the new series!
True saints and true devotees bring good and nothing but good to society which is in dire need of corrections everywhere!
They wear religious tags, yet reformists to the core!
May this tribe enhance trust in the minds of non-followers too, and attract them to their fold!

With this shall we end this week’s Sunday story? Normally my intention is not to make it too long . I prefer a story around 1500 words..

We shall meet for the next working week commencing tomorrow the Monday! Till then Good Luck and Good Bye !

JAGAN ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part VI

Shri N. Jaganathan who is in charge of PR and Publicity wing of my beloved organization SEVALAYA (seen above) about which I have posted a poem on 3rd August 2016 and a Sunday story under the title TEMPLE OF SERVICE (SEVALAYA) on 7th August 2016 in this Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS.
Mr. Jagannathan has become so fond of ENVIUS THOUGHTS that he not only regularly views them but also makes his comments often. I am sure they are quite interesting and hence they form this week’s SUNDAY story; I am confident that you will enjoy them.
Part V was posted on 26th May 2019. Here is Part VI for the delightful reading of my esteemed readers.

 

12/7/2019

, your to-day’s post is informative, illustrative and inspiring. All are new information (to me). Once again thank you for your consistent contributions in dissemination of facts, many of which people seldom know.

11/7/2019

Sir, this is another great saint-preceptor-philosopher you have given and made your many viewers know. Thank you Sir. From your blog, I could understand that the saint was a positive philosopher served people. We are reminded Anusuyadevi, lived with our Rama Sita Devi, who had direct blessings of our Matha. She had the great honour of listening when Sita Devi described her marriage. This great privilege Anusuyadevi had, our epic Ramayana says. How great! So also Anusuyadevi of Bapatla, an holy pilgrimage place. What more can we say! We are blessed to be born in such a great land, Bharath.

9/7/2019

Adi Shankara was a beacon light to the society, for, he extricated ignorant from the muddle during 8th century. The masterpiece to his contributions was his great exegeses to our tenets and rituals through Mimamsa. It used to be said in our tharpanas that we owe our ancestors. It is great saints like Adi Shankara, who showed the meaningful path of life to generations. Yes, generations owe him.

8/7/2019

Let us love and live in each other’s heart as long as we live. Thank you for a beautiful post.

1/7/2019

Saradha Peetam was adorned by great of great in all respects. Of them Shri Chandrasekara Bharathi, served the humanity, by mid 19th century was an incandescent figure among large number of pontiffs. A genius, even an authority in scriptures, tenets. More than a preceptor, the pontiff was also a social scientist, at a time when Mutt heads used to confine with just serving as preceptors. The Nation’s core strength is that she had great, like Chandrasekara Swamiji. We pay our homage. Thanks for giving an opportunity Sir.

26/6/2019

Yes Sir, a large number of saints, scholars, persons served and risen to aesthetic order contributed to Saivism. That include Bhakthi literature (Bhakthi ilakkiyam) which serve as inspiring treatise to the followers. I concede it is an information to me, your write up on Kashmiri Saint. We should thank for this rare but important information.

24/6/2019

Great Sir for your blog today. Mother Bharath has produced galaxy of great men to serve this great land in all spheres. Frankly, i did not know about the great who has served this great land. The concluding line is an inspiring and true statement. Yes, miracles happen in the lives of such true devotees. Again it is people are the beneficiaries out of such persons’ penance.

20/6/2019

I endorse and supplement Einsten’s: “If we don’t act or react on the matters, history will condemn us as abettors of tolerating such inhuman things! We wish and pray that this trend should end.

18/6/2019

Dear Sir, All we viewers should thank you for paying a tribute to Kakkan ji, a man, who stood as a striking example for all in public life. Unfortunately, seldom we would have come across in the contemporary persons (politicians). All that you have reminisced in today’s blog are natural things in him. No surprise to any body. Why this is mentioned to recall is to-day we have to search such persons. No doubt, in our midst also, today we have good persons, committed to the causes, sans personal considerations. To-day nation is in dire need to have such great leaders for construction and re-construction of the country in all spheres. One day, He will grant us such a situation!

17/6/2019

There is parallel to Vanchinathan’s sacrifice. In our days of freedom movement, which was surcharged by Jalianwalabagh massacre perpetrated by Dyer mercilessly, cruelly, he sacrificed his life after achieving. Nation owes him for his grit, courage, determination and a great sacrifice at the altar of motherland. Even for millennia, his sacrifice to our Mother Bharat will not be forgotten. To-day nation, with its 1.3. billiion people, pay its homage and salute the great. He joins the great patriots Lala Lajapathi Rai. Madanlal Dingra, Veer Savarkar, and many like.

15/6/2019

Read the poem of the great Crazy Mohan in Tamil n ur translation in English is great. This is the first time I come to know that Crazy is also a Devotee of Sairam n also a poet. Let him be under the Lotus feet of Sairam for ever.

11/6/2019

Yes, it is cruel on the part of a small, illiterate people criminally -by a section of people. The reasons are bigotry attitude, false economic reasons and under-estimation of women force and their contribution to the society. The is gainsaying fact that women contribute to the society and country at large more than their men-counterpart, as is evident from the contemporary history even (Madam Indiraji, for example). More than this, can we deny that daughters are more affectionate to their parents than the indifferent sons, in many a case.
In any case this should be condemned in the strongest possible terms. This should go lock-lock-barrel.

8/6/2019

The concluding line, let us green the blue” is an excellent message. The need of the hour too. Ocean occupies major portion in the world. It is a great wealth for all economic activities. For vessels transporting people and serve as a global carrier for goods. Seas have enormous wealth. It is our duty to protect, preserve and use. In our mythology, scriptures, ocean occupies respectable places. Our Yajur Veda declares saying “Samudhrame namadhu bandhu” What more can we say on the greatness of Oceans!

7/6/2019

Before admiring the important points on your post to-day, please permit me to express my view: “…let me a blogger, not a …..” I am afraid the latter is not a relevant for the very reason, your lacs of viewers read, enjoy and consume valuable everyday. What you have written is not relevant, except it suits for coining rhyme, Am I right Sir, I have taken liberty to say this due to my genuine respect and regard to you sir. Your wide knowledge acquired by your vast experiences, natural talents, command over language, knowledge in the matters particularly about the nation at large, are great asset for you, blessed by Him, and they are effectively used for lacs of viewers. I think it is a french word, a derivative.

Thus comes to an end this week’s Sunday Story and I am confident that learned Jagannathan’s feed back are always quite interesting and all my esteemed viewers would have enjoyed the same. Till we meet as usual tomorrow GOOD BYE!

Yes, the doctrine ‘Vasudeva Kutumbakam’ was founded and practised by our culture. Our country has given this value to the entire world! We will continue to nourish, come what may, regardless of narrow considerations of some segment of people amongst us.
Yes, camera is only an irreplaceable also an indispensable one in the world of communication and its industry at large. It a great gift of Science given by Eastman!

20/5/19
Thank you Sir, for mentioning Sevalaya in the context of advising people having surplus over their requirements. Yes, I have seen in many families, for generations, that a portion or a certain fixed percentage of their income to go to charities, It is even today practiced and followed. You have rightly mentioned Gandhiji’s view on this. Which human aspect remain untouched by Gandhiji. As Indians it is our pride to have born in Gandhi’s land.
13/5
I take a legitimate right to express, he it is not only your LIC Colleague’s liked lines and words on your various posts. His views represent majority of viewers’. The reason is simple. All have come out with conviction that is common in all. Kudos to Mr. Venkata Krishna. Thanks.
We Indians are very much eligible to celebrate ‘siblings day’, for the very reason, Institution of family is very well regarded. Siblings are part of the family. More than that it is India gives the world the concept of “Vasudeva Kutumbakam” – “universal brotherhood” .

Oh! Great! How beautifully you have glorified men engaged in such a novel soothsaying method! It is unfortunate that this is seen or observed for amusement. They are not recognised, nor appreciated. At least, on seeing your today’s post, people should watch with seriousness and even contribute.

Sir, to-day’s post is timely. People hold diametrically opposite views on vital matters concerning on the return to organic farming. But it is an undeniable fact that the nutrient character of the precious soil suffers once and for all by the extensive use of synthetic pesticides, genetically engineered seeds, among other reasons. In any case it is not without challenge, to mention a few, cost factor, shortage of seeds, lack of understanding and awareness among farmers. In the midst of all these, awareness on this on the increase in the country, particularly in the Agri-hubs of Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, the states blessed with perennial river water sources. Let us be optimistic. I recall, Nehruji gave a clarion call for “Grow more food campaign” which happened to be a core reason for our to-day’s achieving self-sufficiency. We can’t forget the days of famine!

Oh! bunch of information on Penguin. Many of them, many, may not know. Thanks a lot for your today’s informative post.

Yes it has been our custom in our hoary culture, to perform Celestial Weddings. It is in our great faith and a matter of extreme delight. This apart, many among in our midst legitimately believe that if Their wedding is performed, the impediments of performing marriage to the children will be removed, I was told by a genius-discourser. This was the answer given by persons asking why so much celestial weddings are performed everyday. Anusuyadevi heard describing the wedding of Sitamahalakshmi, by herself. This is also interpreted as Thirukkalyanam. How blessed Anusuyadevi.

May I supplement what I remember to have read some decades back? Sir Walter Scott, in his famous poem (a sonnet) “Patriotism” chides, rebukes by saying those do not have the sense of pride of his own land, will go unnoticed to the vile of dust unwept, unhonoured and unsung, however he possessed limitless wealth, power and pelf. Our Bharathi had triggered patriotic spirit in his great poems. Every citizen of every land should learn this and have uncompromising patriotism to his own land.
10/4
Oh, what a great achievement! What to say, several factors would have contributed to this. Your half-century plus experiences, your non stop reading, your serving in a leading public sector undertaking, your friendly viewers across globe and others, and above all Her unlimited grace, among other attributes. You have been contributing every day on valuable topics, many are new to the intended viewers, with a sense of seriousness and missionary zeal. I am afraid, I am less competent to praise you, I concede. I am only a beneficiary. To sum up, I repeat, contents are big and so the container and vice versa. Looking forward to your valuable postings!

A new and useful one to-day. Humours apart, it is necessary all should choose to walk in every opportunity, and benefit. Abundant availability of facilities has made man lazy at the cost of his own health soundness. Your ‘confession’ that you also provided transports to your children, lest they undergo physical strain, – is an interesting ‘confession’. Besides exclusive walking as a habit in the morning hours, everyone should walk, try public transports and save money and protect health, I think. Though I also err on this, I follow this procedure whenever possible (subject to time constraint).
22/3
Dear Sir, With my poor knowledge and vocabulary, I was under the impression that the meaning for ‘goof’ is fool or foolish. But your today’s blog interprets differently. On the one hand I should thank you and request you on the other hand whether my understanding is right or needs to be changed. My acknowledgement/reaction today is different than the rest Sir.
21/3
Holy festival bears several significance. It is a harbinger of beginning of Spring, destruction of evil for ever, i.e. celebration of victory over evil demons, and many more. It has cultural significance too. In western parts of India, on the streets, young boys and girls make human pyramids to reach a pot on the high place and “steal”. This is to reminiscent krishna’s playful deeds and to say if Krishna steals butter, it wipes out human sins. This was the mythological significance of ‘butter stealing’. All these are demonstrated on this day, in western parts of India. I think this is what I have heard.
16/3
Oh! this is a converse one to yesterday’s. This is more convincing in terms of the contents. But eerything is due to His grace.
11/3
Dear Sir, Satyamoorthy was a great patriot, writer, orator par excellent. Kamaraj and all the national leaders had very high respects for his contributions in the freedom struggle. I had occasion to associate with his daughter Lakshmi Krishnamoorthy, who was also a good orator and patriot. When I used to visit her and her husband (Indian Express), she used to narrate and recall Satyamoorthy’s remarkable talents, memory, and unparalleled public speaking, which was essential during freedom struggle. He was fondly called by his admirers “Silver-tongued-Satyamoorthy”
5/3
Sir, it is altogether a new subject you have chosen today. In my understanding, ‘multiple personality’ and split personality are synonyms. While psychiatrists analyse the cause, many have opined that it is attributed to Childhood trauma, one underwent. Often symptoms used to be such persons may have inflated ego in everything to the detriment of cordial association with others.

This much is for this Sunday Story. We shall continue as usual tomorrow. Till then GOOD BYE!

I think that everything published made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
what if you wrote a catchier post title? I am not saying your content is not
solid, however suppose you added something that makes people want
more? I mean UNIQUE NELLORE – Envius Thoughts is a little plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
news titles to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a picture

posts a little bit more interesting. https://bahastopikgosip2.blogspot.com/2018/09/kakak-syahrini-lakukan-hal-tak-biasa.html

TRUE SIR! “If the farmers refuse to work and keep quiet, even the saints and sages cannot continue with their prayers and penance.”

But it is unfortunate that the farmer is not getting his due share in the crop he produces. Only the middlemen are making money out of his toil.

It is a pity that still he is the victim of vagaries of nature particularly the rain God Varun…. ativrishti and annavrishti.

VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part 23

This week’s Sunday story in Envius Thoughts carriess 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 23. Here we have covered his Reviews upto  date.

An additional aspect is he goes through my very early postings in 2015 till he came in contact with ENVIUS THOUGHTS and makes reviews to the delight of my esteemed viewers.
2/4/19
A nice post for the day!
Nothing or none can be as effective a companion as a book to the lonely!
There are many busy people who find their time insufficient to read and enjoy the books they like!
And there are people who find it difficult to while away the precious time at their disposal!
May be they didn’t learn the habit of reading books – unfortunate that they are ‘poor’, though rich financially!
Now we have the e-books on whatever  subject we would like to refer to, but it cannot in any way provide us the level of comfort we derive by reading a book, physical, right under our nose!
We’re told, if we continue to do a task for a continuous period of 21 days, it’s certain we’ll form a habit incapabe of being discontinued!
If this aspect is made aware of to the children, they can very well start reading books much earlier in life and get benefitted!
1/4/19
Nice to hear of your April Cool Day in the place of April Fool Day, when everyone is sought to be made fools for fun though!
We make ourselves fools by trying to befool Nature by our inconsiderate over exploitation!
We’re responsible for making the environment unfit for a healthy living!
And to make nature cool, let us plant as much saplings as possible to make good for the destruction committed so far!
30/3/19
Nice to read the post NATIONAL PUPPY DAY
Barking dogs never bite, we’re told, nevertheless we need to be careful about dogs unfamiliar with us!
Yet, our pretentious act in a threatening way can create fear in a dog and make it retract as you’ve mentioned in the concluding part of the post dedicated to the puppy!
For the pet owners, it’s satisfaction and relaxation that really matters – for them, it’s a true companion too!
For the pets, it’s something more than that, and it means a comforting life that ensures fulfillment of all its needs!
But not everyone is comfortable with rearing the pets including dogs – it requires the mindset to co-exist with them happily!

30/3/19
Full of information on spinach and its health benefits!
Nice that various ailments are taken care of by the leafy spinach!
Almost all well-known diseases bend their knees to spinach that we may not miss it in our daily food!
Not a wise thing to avoid, very well knowing its favourable qualities endowed with it!
Nice awareness created!

30/3/19

We are dancing to the magical tunes of Nature – best illustrated by the magician’s wand, making real untrue, and untrue real!
Everything is real and at the same time unreal too!
We take everything for granted, and presume everything is permanent!
It takes long to realize this folly in this otherwise illusory world which is full of make-believe things!
Let us become a little practical and decide to act with a purpose in life and exit this world with marks of footsteps that may benefit the progeny!

30/3/19
A nice description of the health benefits of watermelons!
Sufficiently taken during the summer days, watermelon provides relief from the effects of scorching sun!
We feel refreshed and full as well with watermelons dominating our food preferences!
Everything on earth has the blessings of nature, and whatever fruits available in abundance in respective seasons have the impact of positive health benefits to humankind!
Can watermelons escape our attention this season when our whole body feels dehydrated, looking for respite from the summer rays emitting its unbearable heat waves?
28/3/19
A comprehensive definition for WEED!
I suppose, you mean to say what’s of no use to me is weed for me, but definitely  not for you because of its usefulness in one way or the other!
And you rightly emphasize that weeds should be taken care of in the same way the main crop is nourished and nurtured!
What’s inconsequential to one is very much important to another – we need to put ourselves in other’s shoes before concluding anything for or against it!
A WEED too is having its day, and we are called upon to value it for whatever it’s worth!
A nice treatment for a weed from your side!

25/3/19
What a nice poem on CROW!
A day’s journey of the wise crow nicely elaborated!
A nice sharing of your experience with the crow!
As you’ve done, it the crow is followed just for a solitary day, we’ll find a lot to be learnt from it!
What’s in a colour, so long as the attributes a crow possesses are a thing of envy?
Sans sharing, the world cannot carry on with the pleasures we experience on a day-to-day basis!
Nothing but a crow can do this job meticulously!
Analysing an issue, no matter it’s big or small, for its greatness or meanness is an aspect inseparable in one’s life – who can but the crow enlighten us on this?
Taking food at the appointed time everyday is a healthy way that extends our qualitative life – a valuable lesson none but a crow can effectively teach us, through its habitual wait for us to serve its food the same time each day!
Small is always beautiful, and the CROW proves it in its day’s routine!

12/3/19
A nice day to enjoy but in a different fashion!
It’s monotonous to do the routine things, necessary though, continuously!
But if we try to attempt something different, we’ll be surprised to find that  monotony is gone, and that a sort of recharge has occurred within to energize!
It amounts to more than the rest we do require to create energy for the tasks we need to undertake later!
Have a different day to enjoy!

What a nice poem from Robert Browning on Grammarian’s Funeral, and its nice reference to your post today to emphasize on Aim High and Achieve High and follow it in life, as you’re just doing that!
A different perception it’s that centers around a lofty ideal that’s pursued to its logical conclusion no matter it’s achieved or not!
It’s ideal because it tends to exert us to the maximum, which in the natural course would see the result in the positive!
It’s great of the grammarian in the poem to have embarked on the pursuit of learning before the actual living!
Despite of its futility, the hero in the poem had been very serious about his goal – which can exhort one to think big before doing something!
None wants to die ordinary death, and everyone wishes to achieve something great and that not tried by others as yet!
It’s in itself a great idea worth a serious try!
And you have taken this leaf much earlier in life, and succeeding by executing the plans in letter and spirit!
Thanks for inspiring the youngsters in particular to make their life different and special!

Good morning. It is ” March 21st-A DIFFERENT ‘Earth’ HERE TODAY” in Envius Thoughts today  for your kind read and response. Thanks.

A nice post on Holy Holi!

 

A festival of colours appealing to the eyes of the onlookers!

A festival of enjoyment to the participants with lavish sprinkling of colours over them not only by their relatives and friends, but by strangers too oftentimes!

The celebration mood doesn’t stop with this, but extends to nicely dressing and visiting their near and dear ones with sweets and other eatables to share the joyful occasion!

Does a festival denote only celebration and nothing else?

Definitely no, but it also marks the eradication of evils in our midst to keep us happy and safe, for it cannot be denied that everyone of us likes to be as secure as a baby in the mother’s womb!

A happy HOLI!

Happy to view the Viewer’s View of Part 22 as your Sunday Story this week!

And through this, I’m extending my sincere WISHES to you and your viewers for a Peaceful, Prosperous, and Promising YEAR ahead!

With this shall we end this week’s Sunday sdtory? Normally my intention is not to make it too long . I prefer a story around 1500 words..
