FIRST TO SCALE THE EVEREST!

General landscape shot of Everest

God’s creations all over the globe indeed is wonderful
None else can no imitation-no duplication beautiful
Human and animal beings, hills and dales, mountains and seas
All to coexist to ensure health and happiness, joy and peace!

Inevitable- exploitation of one by the other
Man has to apply and stop it within a limit- feather!
Man’s heroism, spirit of adventure, fearlessness and all
Carry him to the top of Himalayas!Make him stand tall!

Sixty four years ago this day conquest of Everest by
Tensing Norgay and Edmund Hillary surprised the world
We think of their heroic deeds, preparation for years
Let their tribe increase to repeat such great acts-bringing cheers!

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay smiling in climbing gear.

YOUNG RAJIV THE GREAT

 

 

India that is Bharath, my beloved Motherland
With hoary culture and tradition -a holy land
Blessed by the Almighty to have great leaders galore
To guide the destiny of the Nation from the days of yore!

Pre independence Mahatma Gandhi-Father of the Nation
Galvanized the vast multitude of my brethren with passion
Freedom struggle bore fruit and became a free nation to
Guide the world in times of need and looked upon as great.

A strong Prime Minister quite young to guide the destiny
Was Rajiv Gandhi the great -hopes of the young millions
Mercilessly assassinated by the cruels
Years twenty six ago on twenty first-we salute!

SONG OF THE CROW.

In God’s creation all the living beings humans and animals
Have been blessed with the art of communication-in their annals
Wonderful and unique with each and every creation sure
Can be enjoyed with a properly attuned mind very pure!

Song of the crow sweet and melodious, enjoying from childhood
Beloved mom made me get up to the tune of Crow’s song in the morns
Made me taste my first food calling crow to sing a song for me
What a lovely creation of the Almighty and a present to all!

With its song it makes the people get up in the predawn regular
It gives a musical tone calling its kith and kin to a tasty food
When in distress the crow sings a song that brings its friends smart and quick
In their evening classes in tree branches, a nice chorus is sung in mirth!

Over centuries man’s history is chequered and long
Full of incidents and happenings- quite good and bad throng
Historians’ job to chronicle and hand over to
Posterity as a treasure- sure to be looked into!

Museums indeed are the homes of history perceived
Giving data and details for the people to refer
A school for learning, knowing and absorbing-cultural
Museums all the world over serve purpose-natural!

With the theme-“Museums and contested histories:
Saying the unspeakable in museums”. Means of
Cultural exchange and enrichment of cultures to think of!

This Blogging has become a passion for me and as such I spend quite some time on this every day. I have already mentioned that looking at the statistics and recording the same in my diary has become a routine. Many a time, I ruminate about the purpose and the effect of my postings, how best to improve upon the theme, content and expression that can have a better impact over my esteemed viewers from more than 200 countries.
I used to analyze my earlier and past postings.
ABOUT A FEW VIEWERS

I gauge this from the responses I receive from my viewers and I am really proud that there are quite a few viewers who look for four a.m for the scheduled post appear on the screen! Out of the several, some are very vocal and express on a daily basis their views on the Blog. I thought it fit and interesting to others and hence consolidate and post as Sunday stories under different heads as below:
Viewer’s View of ENVIUS THOUGHTS (in several parts- of Shri OKR Sivanganam)
Voice of the Viewer on ENVIUS THOUGHTS (in a few parts of Shri Rajeev Jha from Bhagalpur))
A journalist’s view of ENVIUS THOUGHTS (of Shri Muthu Aiyer from Hyderabad)
Uthaya’s view on ENVIUS Thoughts (of Shri PH Uthayamurthy from Bangalore)
LICsian’s View on ENvius Thoughts (of Shri T Chandra Sekara Reddy from Kadapa)
Ramamurthi on Envius Thoughts (of Shri Ramamurthi from Bangalore)
Jagan on Envius Thoughts (of Shri Jagannathan from Chennai)
Prasad on Envius Thoughts (of Shri KVVS Prasad from Vishakapatnam)
“Consolidated comments of several viewers” (other than those referred to above) in two parts.

One Mrs. Elezabeth K Mona from Hyderabad appreciates every post and in particular posts on Special Days. She says “We gain a lot of knowledge in an interesting way by reading your posts. Thanks for sharing”.

While the responses are very positive and encouraging, inspiring and motivating, I have a feeling that further improvement is very much called for lest interest may gradually wane and fall into oblivion!

SOOTHING POSTS

Some of my posts do give me a sense of satisfaction as those particular posts appear to give a specific category of viewers some solace and a greater sense of anticipation of something good.
Some time ago, I wrote a PRAYER series out of which “A CANCER PATIENT’S PRAYER” is a regular lead by many and it occupies the TOP position of VIEWS TOPICWISE.
Yes total number of Views as of now is 16731 out 0r 89000. Almost 20%.
Second highest is again related to my post on CANCER- NATIONAL CANCER SURVIVORS’ DAY (USA) which has a view score of 8812 as of now- more than 10% of the total view.
There are Cancer Patients/Cancer survivors who find reading this post giving solace and comfort. I also pray for their wellbeing. With a heavy-very heavy-heart, I recollect my beloved wife suffering with cancer for a few moths and succumbing to the deadly decease on that fateful day 20th August 2014.
TOP THREE VIEWING COUNTRIES
Country- wise top three in terms of overall views are as below as of now:
India 23085
Pakistan 9607
United States 8790
What an amazing figures!

Great fund of statistics provided by WORDPRESS is indeed remarkable.

SUMMER IN CHENNAI
Summer in Chennai is awful-not less than 40 degrees in the last quite a few days. Practically confined to home- what else to expect from a person in his 76+ !!!!!!! Early morning walk, morning temple visit, post sunset a twenty minute outing to enjoy fresh air- away from the electric fan and the AC!

CELEBRATING THYAGARAJA

“Entharo mahanubhaavulu andhariki vandhanamu”
1767-2017.

One of the greatest Saint Poets Tamilnadu has seen is Thyagabrahmam- a great devotee of Lord Rama on whom the poet has written and sung hundreds and hundreds of keerthanas in Telugu is 250 years now.
He was serving Rama and spent all his time in Ramasmarana having been born in 1767. He was born in Tiruvarur and spent his time on the banks of THIRUVAIYARU- in Thanjavur district.
I happily recollect the appreciation my Tamil translation of Thyagayya’s Telugu PANCHA RATHNA KEERTHANAS- FIVE PEARLS OF HIS OFFERINGS- first of its kind in Tamil- from our former President Dr. Abdul Kalam who visited the house of the musicians who brought out the CD of Tamil keerthanas, asked them to sing, had dinner with them in Madurai.

Dr. Abdul Kalam with the musicians in their Madurai residence.

A detailed story you can read from the archives of ENVIUS THOUGHTS here in https://nvsr.wordpress.com under the caption “A GREAT DAY WITH DR. ABDUL KALAM”. I am glad that the Tamil version is being rendered in many places including US. It is all the will and gift of Goddess of LEARNING SARASWATHI.
During the 4 day Thyagabramma festival being conducted on the banks of the CAUVERY river in Thiruvaiyaru a holy and sacred village near Thanjavur in Tamilnadu( where I started my career as A MATHEMATICS-ENGLISH teacher in the year 1961-62 in the centenarian School ) musicians from all over the globe participate –including John Higgins of yesteryear from US.-
Thanks my dear viewers, I stop for the part 17 of the TALE.

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM Part XII

Journey to Indian Freedom was challenging and exciting
Taking different forms and shapes in its long journey rewarding
People of all regions and religions, castes and creeds standing
United under the national leaders all-help extending!

One such that gave the British a temporary victory pure
But made them soon realize that they can’t any longer go sure
That was “REBELLION OF eighteen fifty seven on this day
A mutiny of Sepoys of the Company’s army in Meerut.

The rebellion known by many names-the Sepoy Mutiny,
The Indian Mutiny, the Great Rebellion, the Revolt
Of Eighteen Fifty Seven, the Indian Insurrection and
India’s First War of Independence-Let us salute them grand!

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM PART XI

In the wonderful journey to Indian Freedom
Men and women in lakhs participated with wisdom
Leaders and the led all were with one aim, one desire
And one business in life-Nation’s independence!

Social and political leader was Gokhale
Great leader of the Indian National Congress
Founder of the Servants of India Society
Born this day in six years past eighteen hundred and sixty!

“Indian Self Rule” and social reforms his campaign theme
Leader of the moderate group of the Congress fame
Served with all his might carrying people with him
Was not there to see the light of freedom in his life.
