TAGORE’S GITANJALI Poem 22

POEM 22
In the deep shadows of the rainy July!
In the deep shadows of the rainy July,with secret steps, thou walkest, silent as night, eluding all watchers.
Today the morning has closed its eyes, heedless of the insistent calls of the loud east wind and a thick veil has been drawn over the ever-wakeful blue sky.
The woodlands have hushed their songs and doors are all shut at every house. Thou art the solitary wayfarer in this deserted street. Oh my only friend, my best beloved, the gates are open in my house – do not pass by like a dream.

As we see

God takes care of every one embracing all. We have to seek HIS grace and lead a noble and virtuous life. HIS open doors are common to all. There is no need for fear or hesitation to get in. They are doors of love and affection.God keeps it open for HIS creations. Knock at HIS doors and enter.Rather because of HIS compassion, HE always keeps it open not expecting our knock to open

 

 

கீதாஞ்சலியின் 22ஆம் பாடல்

ஜூலை மாத மழையின் நிழலில்!
ஜூலை மாத மழையின் நிழலில்
இரவு இருட்டில் இரகசிய நடையில்
பார்த்து நிற்பவர் பலரையும் தவிர்த்து
வாசலில் நீயும் வலம் வருகின்றாய்!
கனத்த குரலில் கீழைக்காற்று
அழைப்பதைக் கேளா இனிய காலை
கண்களை மூடி உறங்குது இன்று!
விழித்து நிற்கும் அந்த நீலவானம்
கெட்டித் திரையால் முகத்தை மூடி
பிழைக்கப் பார்க்குது உயர்ந்த வானம்!
பசுமைக் காட்டில் கீதம் உறங்கின
வீட்டில் கதவுகள் மூடப்பட்டன.
தனிமையில் செல்லும் வழிப்போக்கனாக
தடுமாறுகின்றாய் தாழ்ந்த பாதையில்!
அருமை நண்பா! அன்புத் தோழா!
திறந்தே இருக்குது என் வீடு
அதைக் கடந்துவிடாதே கனவாக
காத்திருப்பேன் உனக்காக!
இறைவன் எல்லோரையும் , எப்பொழுதும் அணைத்து நிற்பவன். நாம் அவன் அருளுக்காக அவன் தாள் பணிந்து அறவழி வாழ்க்கை நடத்த வேண்டும்,. அவன் திறந்த கதவுகள் அனைவருக்கும் பொதுவானவை. அச்சமோ, தயக்கமோ தேவையில்லை. அவை அன்புக் கதவுகள். ஆண்டவன் அவரது படைப்புக்களுக்காக திறந்து வைக்கும் கதவுகள். தட்டுங்கள் திறக்கப் படும் என்பதை விட கருணையே உருவான கடவுள் தட்டாமலே நமக்காகக் கதவுகளை எப்பொழுதுமே திறந்து வைத்துள்ளார்.

TAGORE’S GITANJALI Poem21

POEM 21
FADED FUTILE FLOWERS
I must launch out my boat. The languid hours pass by on the shore-alas for me!
The spring has done its flowering and taken leave. And now with the burden of faded futile flowers I wait and linger.
The waves have become clamorous and upon the bank in the shady lane the yellow leaves flutter and fall.
What emptiness do you gaze upon! Do you not feel a thrill passing through the air with the notes of the far away song floating from the other shore?

As we see

Let us fulfill our duties on time. Time waits for none. As we do our duties,  let us learn to enjoy life and nature. There can be no hurdles in getting HIS grace. Let us happily accept all that HE gives.

கீதாஞ்சலி 21 ஆம் பாடல்
பயனற்ற கருகிய மலர்கள்!

எனது படகைச் செலுத்த வேண்டும்
தொய்வான நேரம் கடந்து செல்கிறது
அந்தோ பாவம்- கடற்கரைதனிலே!
இளவேனிற்காலம்
மலர்களைத்தந்தே மறைந்து போனது
பயனற்ற மலர்கள் கருகிப்போனது!
அவற்றைச் சுமந்து காத்திருக்கின்றேன்
அவற்றொடு நானும் தயங்கி நிற்கின்றேன்!
கரைதனில் அலைகள் ஆர்ப்பரிக்கின்றன
நிழல் தரும் தெருவில் பழுப்பு இலைகள்
பறந்தும், திரிந்தும் உதிர்ந்து விழுகின்றன!
எந்த வெறுமையை பார்த்து நிற்கின்றாய்?

எதிர் கரையிலிருந்து மிதந்துவரும் கீதத்தை
கீதத்தைத்தாங்கி வரும் காற்றின் வருடலை
தீபத்தின் ஒளிபோல மகிழ்வோடு ஏற்றிடுவாய்!

காலத்தே செய்ய வேண்டிய கடமைகளை செய்து முடித்துவிடுவோம். காலம் காத்திருப்பதில்லை. கடமைகளை ஆற்றும்பொழுதே உலகத்தை, இயற்கையை அனுபவிக்கக் கற்றுக்கொள்வோம். இறையருளைப் பெறுவதில் தடைகள் எதுவும் வாராது. இறைவன் அளிப்பதை மகிழ்வோடு ஏற்றுக் கொள்வோம்.

PRESS AND ENVIUS THOUGHTS!

Image result for Images to depict Newspapers-HINDU Down Town 6th July 2018-8th page

Journalists, journalism, print and electronic media-Radio and television rightly called fourth estate next to Legislature, Judicature, Bureaucracy.
They have a noble role to play and by and large they play their role very effectively. They by their free and fair reporting enhance the reputation of the individuals or institutions.

Newspapers big and small in the area of circulation or the number of copies circulated, carry a lot of messages for the readers. I have personally experienced the joy and worth of such reporting on ourselves or others.

This week’s Sunday Story carries the recent experiences with the Press and Envius Thoughts.

We have national news paper of century old THE HINDU and  several neighborhood newspapers called Anna Nagar Times, Anna Nagar Talk, Mogappair Times, Mogappair mail  Tamil magazines of repute “KALAI MAGAL”, “KAVITHAI URAVU”, “ILAKKIYA CHOLAI” and so on. They frequently carry some interesting information on my work and Envius Thoughts which creates a new circle of friends and acquaintances.  and I feel very rewarding to me a sensitive person.

Friends and others in my colony and outside speak to me over phone or in person; they say they feel elated whenever they see some news on me and this Blog.Naturally it plunges me in pleasure! Let me share a few thoughts  with my esteemed viewers.

When a review of my Tamil translation of  Telugu Thyagabrammam’s Pancha Rathna Keerthanas to Tamil was reviewed very positively by the HINDU a lot of inquiries were made.
I can quote quite a few examples in the Hindu and other magazines. Would like to confine for the reasons of brevity the latest one.

Anna Nagar Times of June 24th, 18 carried the following news with the photo of the blogger.

After seeing the news, a stranger-now turned a friend- talked to me over phone, expressed his joy on knowing about me and conveyed his desire to meet me at 4 pm.

On seeing the Anna Nagar Time  one more Mr Kumar highly appreciative of the Blog. He observed-”A new concept within the  Visual communication. Neat work by you. “ He had a golden idea to suggest through the Blog for the viewers to adopt CALF OF A COW AS PET.
Here is a post in the Blog reproduced:

All living beings on earth fine creation of Lord Almighty
Humans and animals, trees and forests, rivers and seas mighty
To play supplement and complement to each and all at all times
All have to enjoy harmonious joy and happiness,and  peace!

Pets play an important role to provide joy to the owners
Parrots and squirrels, cats and dogs are the pets of pet- lovers!
It is noble to adopt Calf of the cow as one’s pet in life
Calves of today are  cows of tomorrow-called GOMATHA fine!

Cows give  the nutritious milk – essential for young and old
The sick and poor! Every  individual house owner-bold
Can happily and the flat owners may be a question mark
Yet can try outside the building in the open space around!

In India- my Motherland-Bharath it is genuinely
Believe COW as  sacred one and mother for all rightly
Called GO MATHA-in whose body dwell hundreds of our Gods
With the pets we find pleasure in fondling with our palms.

More so with Cow’s calf-both find happiness- to provide our goal
One Swami will say-”Our religion is for giving maximum
Happiness to maximum people for maximum time”. Let us
Adopt the calf of the cow as pet and enjoy make it famous!

Cows and buffaloes friends of the farmers in our country great
Farmers provide us food with their agricultural products neat
Tractors are different-cows and buffaloes nothing to beat
Let us adopt calves and give to farming community later!

Recently there was a special achievement.
Palasu is a vedic spiritual tree, whose dry branch/ stems are used as samithu.
We had planted 4500 plants which is unique.
Can you cover.We had planted.

Image result for global forgiveness day 2018

Rightly said to forget is human and to forgive is divine!
Global Forgiveness Day is today-the seventh July-genuine
In the human nature, several things are done that harm others
Natural it is to get offended and nurture anger against doers!

This is a day to forgive and a day to be forgiven
People who forgive are happier and healthier than those resent.
Forgiveness is giving up of resentment or indignation
Or anger over an offence, disagreement, or mistake.

Every one in life knowingly or unknowingly commits
Wrongs- intentional or unintentional wrong is wrong
The whole society will be in disharmony -if not forgive
Let us with divine nature forget others wrong actions and forgive!

WORLD ZOONOSES DAY is today the sixth of July
Zoonoses the ailment transferred from animals freely
To human beings and at times vice versa unfortunate!
This Day  emphasizes,brings the problem awareness.

Being aware of this disease amongst people,
May help the people lead healthier life with scruple!
‘zoonoses’ refers to all disease, mild or dreadful
Transmitted from animal to human beings and vice versa.

Animal diseases great concern to humans
Diseases reduce productivity of animals
Produce food- hens and dairy cows. Animals
Raised as food- pigs and beef cattle that become ill.

Some animal diseases transmitted to humans
And control of these types of diseases, known as zoonoses.
Can be caused by all types of pathogens, viruses,
Bacteria and parasites with symptoms diarrhea and fever!
