N. R. Viswanathan, my beloved father, guiding from his heavenly abode. 

Oh, my beloved God-my father revered and respected
It is years thirty today since you took your heavenly abode
I feel you are with me every minute now than when you were
Alive in flesh and blood till you were eighty seven clear.

In your life time you were a role model for many many
As a dutiful teacher, you won their hearts-with love worshiped they
For your love, knowledge, methods, discipline as a school Headmaster
Said they, “think of him, take exams, you score high”-treated as pastor.

Physically we are orphaned but you guide at every moment
From your heavenly home- you watch my morning walk and each movement
My habits and hobbies you taught me in my early days quite strong
I shall follow till my hundred -just years twenty four away along!



HIS blessings brought me the ARIVUKKALANJIYAM AWARD- the latest.

Where was the language millions of years ago!
Animals and humans, trees and plants, hills and mountains
All speak a language one or the other today sure
Language includes dialects sans a form very pure.

Hundreds of languages all over the world they speak
May be dialect-language helps understand we seek.
Mother language taught by mother is indeed great
None to feel ashamed to speak-certainly a treat!

International Mother Language Day is today
UNESCO declared   to promote peace and multilingualism.
Let us take pride in learning and speaking boldly
Also take pleasure in learning  other languages deftly!

Image result for Young Readers Day 2016.

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!

November 5th- Book Lovers Day – first Saturday of November.


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!

On one side book sales soars to millions thanks to Book Fairs here and there
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!

There are people who love reading books buy a lot every month for sure
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
Great indeed are they and on this holy day, let us wish them through a mike!

For their selfless service to the society through the taught torch bearers
Of knowledge and wisdom infusing qualities noble in their students

Though alive, one is dead sans knowledge, wisdom through literacy
Unfortunate large population remain illiterate-pity
Efforts on war footing need of the day to provide literacy
Especially in the most countries adopting democracy!

Today is International Literacy Day as declared
By UNESCO in nineteen hundred sixty five-to be observed
To tell all- of the fact that one in five adults not literate
Two thirds of illiterates are women- estimate moderate!

Future of the family and society is at stake if allowed
On this day very important, all responsible be advised
To provide literacy to all at any cost-Government
And individuals to take up efforts honest- permanent!
