Penultimate day of the year 2018! An important day! No more Sundays in the year and naturally no more Sunday story in Envius Thoughts! Hence this assumes significance
This is 52nd Sunday story last for the outgoing 2018!! First Sunday story this year was on 7th January 2018-1045th day of the Blog and 1046th post! It is indeed a rare coincidence that the first Sunday Story of the year was VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part 16- and the last of the year is again VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part 22! Thanks OKR Sivagnanam!
On this unique day here is 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 22. Here we have covered his Reviews in from 18th October 2018..
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.
Part 21 covered up to 18th October 2018. Here it is up to ………….
A nice poem from Tagore and your translation!
Yes, we’re raising huge walls around us and remain cut-off from reality that’s the manifestation of external world around us!
In the process, we’re losing the true identity we’re supposed to maintain and promote!
We lose our own selves and forget to realize the presence of REAL SELF residing dormant but otherwise potent to release the energy needed to prove our worth beyond material manifestations to be worthwhile to the society of which we are a minuscule part, but capable of splendid performance towards the larger goal of life humans must embrace and achieve!
The entire globe as a single family – what an adorable concept!
Practiced religiously, peace and prosperity we can attain for sure!
Oneness of mind is certainly utopian, but we can inch towards it with efforts!
With solidarity being the keyword, dreams come true, and imagination becomes reality!
World citizens unite!
One Thousand Four Hundred and Fifty Posts – and not just a miracle – that has earned you the honorary doctorate from the university in UK!
Not a fun, but your dedication and passion to your Blog that has taken you along the long journey revealed in twenty nine parts so far!
There’s ripen wisdom behind your seeming innocence that your face reflects – i am referring to your picture taken during the King of Poets Meet – நிறை குடம் தழும்புமா,
Dr. NVS Sir?
Role of SOCIAL MEDIA is superb, taking the contents worldwide with instant feedback – positive and negative, and favourable and unfavourable as well – but for it, reformation is not possible!
An enviable FEAT so far, and a sure precursor to many more of your repetitive feats in the days to come!
A nice poem on Christmas Day!
Whatever man possess will be meaningless if he lacks love towards his brethren!
All material pursuits lose its sheen if love is absent in activity man pursues!
Sans love, peace evades mankind, and prosperity means nothing in reality!
LOVE, PEACE and PROSPERITY in alignment leads HUMANKIND to FULLNESS!
May this CHRISTMAS bestow all that HUMANITY needs!
Nice of your post today on International Migrants Day!
Migrants – their plight is pathetic, with losing all their belongings in the country of their dwelling!
Reasons may be many, including the unscrupulous attitude of their own countrymen acting against their welfare!
Eviction by the government itself in the name of economic development sometimes leaves the people stranded, forcing them to go elsewhere in search of basic necessities of life!
Whatever be the reason, welcoming the migrants of any kind, with open hand and rendering them all possible service will go a long way in mitigating their sufferings to the minimum!
Going one step further, providing them with right opportunities will offer suitable avocation so that a decent and secured living is assured, removing all fears about the future!
None has the authority to stop the UNIVERSE and its non-stop movement!
Power and energy to make this a possibility is inherent in it, and the Universe draws strength therefrom in its eternal journey!
And whatever is its appended organ, does so, following their commander-in-chief, who’s none other than Universe itself!
Universe is its own charioteer and adopts the strategies conceived by it!
Part 47, in the series ‘A chariot on the move’ is yet another nice work from you!
Great indeed is the role of volunteers in social development and economic development of the whole world!
Contribution of volunteers supplements the working of the arm of a government in a large measure!
Expecting the government to intervene for anything and everything may not be able to mitigate all the sufferings of people, and especially so in times of crisis of a large magnitude!
Work volunteered during crisis management is the determining factor that spells success to the initiative of the powers-that-be!
You’ve beautifully brought out the nuances of voluntary action to the attention of the viewers!
Nice to read your post on Human Rights Day on December 10th!
May be, human rights violation across the globe prompted the United Nations Organization to observe a day to reinforce human rights everywhere!
Alas, while defending our rights, we fail to recognize those of others!
Where does the principle of equality go?
Oppression has come to stay, and is speading its tentacles all around to crush the legitimate expectations of the less privileged in particular!
Overdrive of the powerful is a menace to the society, and scuttles their right to a decent living they are entitled to!
Let us be humane to qualify as real human beings, and be within the limits to exert control over others in the name of discipline!
Nice to read your post on King of Poets Birthday on 11th!
Nationalism and Divinity no doubt makes Subramani Bharathi really a King of Poets!
Messengers of peace – a nice description of poets in general!
Messages Bharathi conveyed to the nation and society are immense, and through them, he lives to eternity!
Patriotism was his life-breath, and people of his motherland drew spirited inspiration to fight the British, with independence of the nation being the single agenda before them!
Through poetry, literature of any language gets developed along dimensions different and taken to the highest level only to spread its roots further and further!
Not to mention of Bharathi’s contribution to the language of Tamil, which has no downslide ever!
Long live Bharathi’s name in our midst, and let his works inspire our leaders to work for the masses and their causes!
A MOVEMENT can definitely make us care for the MOUNTAINS!
The list of benefits flowing out of mountains, small and big alike, is endless as you step in to elaborate them in your post on International Mountain Day on 11th!
Manifestations of NATURE, indeed, are many and varied – it’s all created for the co-existsnce of all living beings together!
I very much like your usages – ‘ OCEAN OF COMPASSION, while referring to the Almighty, and ‘ WORLD’S TOWER ‘, meaning the mountains, that offer water the elixir of life!
Let us save the mountains for all that it matters to us on this earth!
Surely POETS are the PETS of the world whether or not ‘O’ in them is removed!
Remarkable is the power of remembrance of pets of any kind, as is revealed by the lion that was a pet in its ypunger days to the lady years back!
A great lesson we learn invariably from all pets- that of ‘being thankful’ to all!
They are ‘true’ companions to the pet owners in times of loneliness – something, especially many elderly miss it due to valid circumstances or otherwise!
A beautiful correlation you made between POETS and PETS in your post today!
A nice post on World Energy Day!
And a nice call to save ENERGY, the propelling force that moves the humanity!
Only in its absence we’ll feel the difference it makes in our daily life!
Our life made easy and comfortable, thanks to the sources of energy we’re endowed with!
Saving is as good as earning – the concept equally applies to the energy we’re using!
Abundance doesn’t mean we can use it without ever giving a thought to!
Better it’s used when in need, and spare it untouched – a habit one must imbibe to effectively deal with anything that’s scarce in particular!
A right topic you’ve chosen for this Sunday Story, and is set to create an awareness of the killer-corruption widely!
A beautiful distinction you made between Integrity and Honesty, with the latter proving to be a powerful option to erase this deception of corruption from our midst!
Had we desisted from the deadly corruption, we would have become a nation, setting an example for others to follow!
An understanding of the corruptible scourge would have brought us to enjoy the enviable position of a great SUPERPOWER in the comity of nations!
We’ve lost the bus, yet we’ll be having the buses one after another, and let us not miss them too!
Let us shun the takers of bribe, and not accept it too in the course of our job, and render the services as if an opportunity bestowed, to use it to serve the people, for, we are sufficiently paid for our work by the government!
A nice post on National Flag day!
Our serving GUARDS on the border deserve the best under the sky for their selfless service for the cause of the nation!
Not to speak of the HEROES left to the heavenly abode after having fought and died for their motherland!
And again, not to speak of their widows and other family members left behind due to the sacrifice of their husband/father/son/daughter, etc., in the warfront for the security of the nation that was heart and soul to them!
And amply donating on the Flag Day for their welfare is our bounden duty to fulfill!
Nice to read yours on Ravindranath on Envius Thoughts – Part 2!
On a perusal of his comments, I understand he is very much straightforward in expressing his opinions – a rare attribute we may witness in people!
It may hurt people, but a welcome quality!
My applause and regards to Sri. Ravindranath!
Nice posts from you on the series – TREE TALKS – five in number so far!
What a humble pleading from the trees put before the mankind!
How great is the benevolence showered by the selfless trees for the life of man on this earth!
How pure is the air supplied by the trees – we’re enjoying and continue to rely on it for our healthy survival!
How great it’s of the trees, preaching the six-sense human beings on the wisdom of going in for reusable products in stead of rooting them out from existence!
How selfless the trees are in removing the loads and loads of ‘impurities’ we scrupulously make in the course of our life and facilitating our life with abundant supply of oxygen!
All this is possible due to the ‘innocence’ of trees that never go for schooling and take lessons from the teachers!
But unfortunately, our education taught us not the courtesy of looking after the trees, which goes to suggest that we imitate what the trees are endowed with – the innocence – and change our selfish track to heed to their appeal and nurture them for us and our generations to come!
A nice post on J C Bose, the multifaceted personality who has contributed a lot to the humanity!
Remembering the likes of Bose is justified by taking a lead thereon and make further improvements in the concept to make it useful for the society in many ways than one!
They must have burnt the midnight oil before inventing something in their mind, with indomitable will and passion to carry on with the mission to its logical end!
A leaf we may take out of their lives, and try to emulate them in pursuits we’re passionate about!
This way one can make himself /herself useful to the society in one field or the other!
Nice to read your yesterday’s post on International Day of Disabled People!
Empathy with the disabled will make us humans really humane!
The specially- abled need our positive intervention to make their life good!
They are gifted with talents and a little push on our part will see those talents getting translated in the form of achievements in the areas they choose!
Let us be cautious to remain silent on their disabilities but lend our support wholeheartedly for their upward movement of life!
A nice post on World Wild Life Conservation Day!
We’ve that bad instinct to disturb and harm others including wild animals!
We seek satisfaction at the cost of others and other living beings!
We need to mend our ways to allow them as they are unaffected!
Let us make them our friends and try to co-exist with them to allow for their preservation in tact!
