Many a flower blossom sans seen by any and wither
In wilderness alas!God’s wonderful creations better
To be seen and enjoyed by all for its scent and color
man must have eyes and nose-ears and tongue to spread!

Many an unknown poet and author write and write all times
Keep them unread by any! They die unwept, unsung and unhonored!
Biographers are the need of the day to bring them out to open
National Biographers Day is today-sixteenth May!

A day to admire them who teach us about the famous people
Give us an impression into their lives via the biographies.
Biographies for children is the best way to explain history
Of people and their accomplishments in life.Day to honor!

Tell me who your friends are, I shall tell  you who you are
Tell me the books you read, I shall tell you who you are!
Questions of those great days ringing loud  in our ears
Two noble matters that shape a person for years!

Reading of books or hearing at still younger age
Sure will make a child grow in a way to gain an image
Schools and elders to inject the habit of reading
To last all through the life on the road of prospering!

Second April of each year- for the elders to pay
Proper attention and get the quality books for the age
And infuse the great and noble practice at that stage!

Pretty difficult indeed- Libraries give a great lead
Home or school, college or public libraries are many
For the people to make use, read and enhance knowledge!

Reading makes a man knowledgeable and gives him a place of pride
To be developed as a habit right from the young age as tide
Regular and early habit lasts from the cradle to the grave
Reading habit sure an example of this dictum great and brave!

Weeks come and weeks go, months come and months go every year sure
November comes and Second Tuesday dawns-this year today is day pure
Observed as “YOUNG READERS DAY”-reading process requires good practice
Activity personal-yet read aloud- others benefit!

Present a new book to youngsters, spend time with them-read, make them read
A sacred day to cherish and nourish for the year as a whole-plead
Make the young ones to continue each day along with school study
Extra reading -fiction or non fiction, prose or verse make them steady!

Celebrate National Book Lovers Day with a good read

Among all the hobbies and habits, Book Reading is great and lovely
Innate taste for reading to be developed right from childhood nicely
That will last for ever -from cradle to the grave-bound to help self growth
Providing knowledge triggering thoughts-thoughts noble and wise worth!

Reading habit among the youth cause of concern for all everywhere
Sitting before the television sets and having smart phones on hand
Youngsters find little time for books unfortunate and looks very bad!

Whether stay in bed, hit the beach or find perfect spot serene quite pure
Under the shade of a green tree, kick back and relax with book they like

National Book Lovers Day: How to Save Money on Reading


Four hundred years ago made his exit from this earth

Four thousand years his works will shine like the young on birth

“England’s national poet” and “Bard of Avon”-was called

Great gift of God to the literary world – well he ruled!


William Shakespeare par excellent poet, playwright

And actor- born in fifteen sixty four April- quite bright

Greatest writer in English- the world regarded him right

Monumental plays and sonnets in plenty he did write!


Thirty eight plays, sonnets hundred and fifty four-great feat

In years fifty two-comedies, tragedies-he wrote

Ever spreading fragrance, never fading-work immortal

Imagination great- characters in high pedestal!


For literary lovers great treat every read gives;

“This above all: to thine ownself be true,

And it must follow, as the night the day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Farewell: my blessing season this in thee!”

-Lord Polonius, Hamlet Act I, Scene 3


Twelfth Night, Henry Fifth, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth

Hamlet, King Lear, Othello- indeed immortal plays

Who can forget his words of wisdom-nectar like quotes?

“All the world’s a stage,

and all the men and women merely players:

they have their exits and their entrances;

and one man in his time plays many parts…”

—As You Like It, Act II,


Man’s life is measured not by his age, sure by his deeds great

In the stage of the world, he played his part, stands quite tall- straight

Made his exit four hundred years gone since then- yet lives

Will live for years four thousand to make cheerful all lives!

(In commemoration of his 400th death anniversary today-23/4/2016)

Imagination sweetens her lips
All the epics and scriptures she sips
Art of painting and drawing her fort
Her flowery hands display in court
Quality of words and speech her sport
Knows well the taste of songs, sweet and great
Graces the scholars and the well read
Gives strength to their tongue with divine feet! (3)
