Within  all the limits of modesty, I can say with pride that maintaining a purely literary one as this is extremely taxing and tiring. Every day a topic is needed and

deciding eats upon our precious time and once decided , matter-content- to be thought of and presented in a pleasing manner lest it may not attract the viewers.

Taking debits and credits, assets and liabilities, receipts and payments – for drawing the Half Yearly Balance Sheet and Trial Balance—for the Blog ……….Oh! My God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some  well-meaning friend of mine asked me once,  in all sincerity how much money I get out of the Blog!!!!!!!!! I don’t know how a literary Blog can earn money!

Daily ‘the number of views’  is my earning and from how many countries?

Assets and liabilities are assessed on the basis of increasing or decreasing number of views every day!

Month      No. of days  No. of posts  No. of views     pda

January 19  31                      31              4600              148

February 19  28                   29              2100                 74

March 19      31                   32                   2000            64

April 19         30                   31                    2200       73

May 19         31                    32                  2400             77

June 19        30                       31                 2200+           74

Nothing can be described as LIABILITY in the Blog disturbing fact is decreasing number of views as is seen above. This makes me seriously analyse the accounts as we have this” half yearly closing”, whether topics and themes chosen for the posts are losing their sheen and what better themes and contents can be  given to my beloved  viewers. I solicit ideas and suggestions in the interest of better closings in the future.

New Receipts are a  a series of INDIAN SAINTS and so far five are over and is to continue for quite some time, will include the Saints and Seers of all religions.

On the asset side of this balance sheet, all my viewers are my assets! About 15000 views for the half year ending today! Viewers  are indeed  the greatest assets of any Blogger and I cannot be an exemption!

There is a regular viewer of the Blog who sends his observation on each of the post- put together for a couple of days in the form of an audio!!! Very interesting they are for those who know Tamil. He is one of my erstwhile colleagues in my great ALMA MATER-Life Insurance Corporation of India- where I learnt the art and science of life and living- that I was fortunate to serve for more than four decades in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan and as a part of my Central office in Mumbai!

He is Shri A.Ramakrishnan now settled in Chennai who hails from Thanjavur District as I am. He called on me yesterday just to felicitate me on my Blog’s crossing TWO LAKHS views!!!!He offered me a grand shawl on the occasion.(

I am sure my esteemed viewers will not be very sensitive to find out and point that normally book closing must be at the end of the day and not as this Half yearly closing in your hands on the morning of June 30th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let us meet tomorrow as usual after you digest this Half yearly Accounts closing  Report!!!

ENVIUS THOUGHTS 1600th DAY!

Image result for Images of the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS

Oh mortals! Time and tide waits for none
So never treat time that flees as fun
Life is short, love is long and so love all
Love knows not young or old and short or tall!

Life is short, death sneaks in at its sweet will
So, do things right, speak things kind, make life still
With peace and poise, joy and health all the time
Serving poor, helping old, be your pastime!

Beware life is precious, time is precious
Never waste life, lest sure it goes vicious
Fritter not life, waste not time, don’t compare
Pleasures the idle have that bring despair!

Sing in praise of timeless God and time full life
Lead life with grace to serve all and God sans strife!
What I wrote a decade ago made me start my Blog
ENVIUS THOUGHTS and today on its sixteen hundredth day!

God and Viewers to be thanked immensely – TWO lakhs and more
Overall view score now-earned a place in Asia Pacific Book of Records
World Records University offering Doctorate-deserve or not I know not
I seek all your continued support to this literary jaunt!
