It is said this year will bring cheers for all in all spheres of activities.

விகாரி ஆண்டு விருந்தாய் வருகுது
புகார் இல்லாத ஆண்டாய் மலருது!
முப்பத்து மூன்றாம் ஆண்டு இது
முத்து முத்தான ஆண்டு இது!

முழுமையாக மகிழ்விருக்கும்
எழுந்து நம்மை விரையச்செய்யும்
பழுத்த கருத்துக்களைப் பரவச் செய்யும்
அழுத்தமான வாழ்வு நம்மை அலங்கரிக்கும்!

விகாரி ஆண்டு விகார எண்ணங்களை
விரட்டி அடிக்கும்!
பலகால நட்பதனை நாடச் செய்யும்
வருங்காலச் சிறப்பதனைக் கூட்டுவிக்கும்!
விகாரி ஆண்டதனைக் கை கூப்பி
வரவேற்போம்! வாய் நிறைய வாழ்த்திடுவோம்!

வண்ண வண்ணக் கோலமிட்டு
வாயிலிலே காத்திருப்போம்!
விகாரியே வருக! விருந்தாக அமைந்திடுக!

“VIKARI” year comes as a feast
Blossoms like a year sans complaint
Thirty Third year is this
Pearls like year is this
Will be full of joy
Will make us hasten in life
Will make matured thoughts spread
Will make Emphatic life beautify us!

“VIKARI” year will drive away uncouth thoughts
Will make us contact our old and faithful friends
Will add greatness in our lives

Let us welcome the VIKARI year with folded hands
Greet the year with fullness of mind

Drawing beautiful arts at the door step

We wait to welcome!

VIKARI please come and become our feast!


Wishing a happy TAMIL NEW YEAR “VIKARI” to all the Tamils living in different parts of the globe, we end this Sunday Story. We shall go ahead. Good bye for the present.

MUHARRAM on October First


Muharram the first month of the Islamic year is great
Second holiest month after Ramadan month- a treat
Muharam not a festival but a month long fasting
Almost mourning over Immam Hussain’s valiant death.

On Ashura, Muhammad’s grandson, Imman Hussain,
Died fighting in the Battle of Karbala almost fourteen
Centuries ago naturally a sad event mourned by all
Fasting , praying and mourning the day is spent all over.

Day differs among Shias and Sunnis in principle
All pious and devoted Muslims Allah’s disciples
And ofcourse on the sighting of the moon in the month
But a day sacred and holy all observing with faith.

ENVIUS THOUGHTS crosses 1,09,000 views.

I am glad to share with you that with the 34th view at 07.00 hours yesterday viz Monday  the 2nd October 2017,- the holy day of Gandhi Jayanthi- total views of ENVIUS THOUGHTS  crossed ONE LAKH  AND NINE THOUSAND (1,09,000) from more than 210 countries  around the world on the 927th day and 994th post, thanks to your support and encouragement. Kindly continue. Thanks aplenty.





Yes; ENVIUS THOUGHT was born with its first post “My Tryst With Life Insurance Corporation of India” on 25th February 2015 in and it is stepping into- crawling into –  its THIRD year today!

By the immense grace of the Goddess of Learning and the strength derived from the views and responses from the visitors to this Blog, today it is stepping into its third year on its 709th day and 770th post.

I am ever grateful to the encouragement provided by the increasing views the Blog has been experiencing ever since it was launched.

This indeed is an occasion to take stock of the activities and make a SWOT analysis.

Image result for Images for SWOT analysis

STRENGTH of ENVIUS THOUGHTS is increasing number of views. Both in terms of average views per day and per post has exceeded ONE HUNDRED in fact is a great strength. In terms of days it is 110 and in terms of posts it is 105! By all means a satisfactory progress and hence it is a strength. WORDPRESS authorities provide the greatest strength.

Some of the readers like Sarva Shri OKR SIVANGANAM, Rajeev Jha, KVVS Prasad, Ramamurthi, Jagannathan, TCS Reddy, Muthu Iyer, are so regular in reading and sending their honest views of the posts and others indeed add vitamins to the Blog

ENVIUS THOUGHTS  gratefully acknowledge their responses by publishing their views periodically in the Sunday stories.

That viewers are from more than 200 countries all over the globe adds enormous strength. Plainly speaking, I cannot even name half the number of countries!

Here are some countries having registered more than 1000 views of ENVIUS THOUGHTS: (as on 22/2/17)

  1. India 18803
  2. Pakistan   8701
  3. United States   8062
  4. Myanmar   4121
  5. Iraq   3796
  6. Cambodia             2661
  7. Albania   2190
  8. Egypt 1801
  9. Bangladesh 1770

10 Philippines                    1687
11 Algeria                          1649
12 Sri Lanka                      1316
13 European Union           1159
and 14 Vietnam                        1048

WEAKNESS of ENVIUS THOUGHTS- it is a question mark whether purists of English poetry will accept the posts of poetry from Monday to Saturday as POEM in its strictest grammatical sense. Anyhow very definition and perception go on changing! After all it is just an Indian writing English poetry!

OPPORTUNITIES for ENVIOUS THOUGHTS are in fact unlimited, very vast and wide of course. There are ever so many topics and subjects in the world that one can go on writing eternally if one can!

THREATS for ENVIUS THOUGHTS are the very age and physical condition of the Blogger. Becoming aged day after day! Mind refuses to think!  Words are in no mood to come out! Ideas simply freeze! Very often thoughts go on strike! As you sit on the computer table, eye lids automatically close and you are immediately transported to the lap of Nidhra devi- Goddess of Sleep! Imagination has practically dried out! Innovative thoughts no longer blossom!

Notwithstanding these weaknesses and threats, as I used to tell my students in those days of my service, I am making all out efforts to convert all my weaknesses into strengths and threats into opportunities!. Let us see how far I am able to pull on …… sorry no, push on!

I am indeed fortunate to have 118 followers as of now from all over the globe  and I am indeed grateful to them for the support and inspiration they provide to my ENVIUS THOUGHTS- one of the greatest STRENGTHS I have referred to above.

The following are my oldest followers from March 2015 and I am ever grateful to them.

Philosophically, on many days the opening views as I start the day at 4.30 hours will be a single digit number, which used to be as much as 50 and more a few months ago, will plunge me in sorrow and depression as Blogging has become my PASSION nowadays!?!?!? But then, reasoning will prevail and say it may be due to the change in time zones. Redeeming feature is at the end of the day it may exceed the  magical figure of 100. It only reminds me of the Gitopadesa  “ACTION IS THY DUTY AND FRUIT IS NOT THY CONCERN”. Yes that is what ENVIUS THOUGHTS has taught me in the last two years.

Most of my esteemed followers are not personally known to me! I do not know whether at any time in my life, I will be able to meet them in parson and enjoy their company. Any how I pray the Lord Almighty to bless them all with long and peaceful, pleasant and prosperous, happy and healthy life to continue viewing the ENVIUS THOUGHTS.

Requesting the word press blogging community to bless and encourage and wish the ENVIUS THOUGHTS a very great future, I take leave for the day praying for a very happy weekend for all of you!

Ring out the sixteen
In a happy and pleasant way
New experiences it gave
Giving hopes and confidence for future.

On to the New Year we have to go
Universe to grant and with the grace of God
Thousands of unfulfilled desires to see through!

The year is gone like a whiff of air
Hours and hours gone as seconds and seconds
Experiences gained worth a life!

Sixteen of two thousand let us ring out
In joy and peace abound all about
Xcellent year we have to say good bye
Things are never permanent in the world-die
Ever changing for the better or for the worse
Everywhere changing- changes wished for the better course!
New things blossoming taking the place of the old!

Await the New Year with hope and confidence
New experiences quite positive
Diamond year is bound to be the incoming.

Resolve to make the incoming year an excellent one
In the New Year let us love all serve all-their hearts to be won.
New friends, relationships- all with harmony and peace
Good and peaceful developments day after day with ease.

International peace and harmony the world needs
New Year to bring greater love and peace as feeds.

Thee, My Lord, make this year a happy year throughout
Harmony may prevail all over the world well thought-out
Eternal peace may prevail from this New Year.

Several areas need to be improved
Ever to remain in green well developed
Veterans in various fields to be recognized
Enthusiasm eternal be the gift of the New Year planned.
Never submit ourselves to injustice and jealousy.
Taking care of the have-nots and depressed be our aim piously.
Every hour and every day let us help others possible.
Every creation of God Almighty is great and has a purpose positive.
New Year may bring all peace and prosperity in the world..

பண்ணிய பாபம் எல்லாம் பனிபோல விலகட்டும்!

கல்வி பெருகட்டும், களைப்பு தீரட்டும்
அல்லவை அழியட்டும் நல்லவை நிற்கட்டும்

செல்வம் உயரட்டும் செழித்து ஓங்கட்டும்
நல்லவர் வாழட்டும் நாடு சிறக்கட்டும்!
