His views form the Sunday story today. Mr. G Vasudevan now in Toranto, Canada.

I very strongly believe that I draw strength from the immense Grace of the Lord Almighty and inspiration from my esteemed viewers and their responses. With 134 followers from more than 210 countries, very satisfying progress of the Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS is the overall view score is about to cross ONE LAKH in a couple of days. By the grace of Goddess of Learning and the enthusiasm of the viewers, today’s post is 928th   in the 863 day life of the Blog!

Well, one of my new admiring viewer is Shri Vasudevan  my erstwhile colleague in the Life Insurance Corporation of India and presently with his daughter in Toranto, Canada. He daily views the post and makes his comments regularly and here is a compendium of the same for the reading of my esteemed viewers as this week’s Sunday story. I hope you will enjoy reading.

I like your words “EVERYTHING IS CREATED FOR A PURPOSE ” I came to know that tiger belongs to cat family. Tiger is beautiful in sight. Though we are afraid of Tigers, they too have love towards their kith and kin as shown. The picture shows the mother’s love towards its baby. It is known that “LORD AYYAPPA” is a friend to the tigers and could get milk from them ! If we show love and affection to anyone, NO HATRED will be present in GOD’S creations. Thanking you Sir for having given me a chance to express my thoughts also.

I went through the words of Saint Alphonsa. There is rich meaning in her saying about not harming anyone even while talking. She is always fond of sweet talking. She says that she will never complain of anything.
She is always interested to show love to others. For every failure she asks pardon. Her life should make us learn her holy spreading’s. Let this FEAST DAY give “ALWAYS FEAST” to our EYES, SPEECH AND THOUGHTS. Thanking you sir for showing light on HUMAN VALUE and UNDERSTANDING


What a strange leader! Holiday was declared as against his will! I am not thinking about your two ill-lucks, but I am proud that you have 1,00,000 followers as of now. I hope the numbers will grow at a greater speed. Your thought on DEATH brings confidence in us . Very nicely I have through the entire article and thanking you sir for a well-read article.

I have gone through this article. Excellent to read! Finally it is a surprise to me that the translator is the AUTHOR himself. Very soon I will be listening to your TAMIL TRANSLATION. Thanking you sir for knowing you more and more!!

Great Abdul KalamJi, Great Pandit NehruJi. Both of them are known for their peace-loving nature. Though KalamJi was a scientist he had been teaching till his last breath. Nehru Ji also delivered a peace-talk at UNO. When I was in 9th Standard, his speech” The world has become advanced in Science. War at the present time will mean an end to the world”was in English lesson. This has touched my heart and I found love is the only key to open all the doors of darkness. About KalamJi, we are proud enough that he led a simple life. It is great that he was attracted to TYAGARAJA PANCHARATNA KIRTIS. Your noble touch in the lines of your poem would keep their memories ALIVE in our lives.

A peace loving nation is ours. It is a known fact that we won the freedom without any arms. But if war is forced we will not watch and forgo our mother’s space. All the wars so far fought have been won. We think of Major Saravanan (whose statue in Trichy Cantonment Area) who has sacrificed his life for the sake of our nation. We LOVE OUR NATION with peace and pride. Thanking you sir for making us remember our KARGIL HEROS.

The child has a confident face and showing a victory sign. Only thing is that we have to be eye openers!
By opening eyes how many things do happen! The wonderful world is bright. Changes are being accepted and adapted. All the day dreams have been fulfilled with wishful thinking and wise actions. Let us make our children realize the reality and show them the path full of wisdom and courage. Thanking you Sir, for waking up at the right moment to make our children great in thoughts and actions.

This is a chance to know that our great poet has praised “TILAK JI” with love and affection. To drive the meanness away is a catchy term in your translation. As Saivites repeat the Lord’s name, we use to chant his glory. Again our Bharath Matha wears Tilak by remembering our “TILAK JI”. Thanking you Sir for driving our emotional national spirit by adoring TILAK JI.

Sir, Went through the two finest incidents of helping nature of the SUPREME LORD! Our kavi Bharathi was also confident of meeting KALA and his Tamil poem is excellent to read. He would drive KALA 4000 miles away. He challenges YAMA in a straight forward contest! Dr. Hayim enjoyed your translation. I praise HIM for his noble understanding of our Great Kavi and his feelings.

Final advice says that our lives should challenge the little problems which come and go and should not be taken to heart. No about your emotions will surely help us to have courage at odd moments. Thanking you Sir, for bringing this article to have STUBBORN MIND in us.

A good poem by Great Bharathi! And a great translation by you Sir and it says a lot about our flag and its protectors. The words expressed show the high esteem of your thought. Not only KAMBAM is tall, your description also is high in national SPIRITS. The words expressed are so strong that I could see
REBORN BHARATHIAR in you. I have no words for description further. I am immensely HAPPY and PROUD that your words should keep our FREEDOM intact. Thanking you Sir again for the creation of awareness of our PRESENT INDEPENDENT INDIA.

Sir, again you have made this day as a MONKEY DAY. We saw two monkeys show the togetherness and attachment. As you rightly told, they know their GOAL and helped Lord Rama heart and soul. Sita is brought back. I see the author’s feeling in the poem that he is not able fix the goal yet. Oh! GOD, help us to have clear VISION and WITHSTANDING power as per the prayer song to the LORD HANUMAN. Thank you Sir, for bringing this note to us and making a feeling that monkeys are superior to us in all respect.

Never thought that this day is a “lolly pop” day, a jolly day. We have come down to the level of children enjoying lolly pop. We are very young if our thoughts are childlike.  Yes, we should also be free from all other loads of everyday life. Thanking you Sir, for making us children at times.

I am happy Sir; your books have been published!
I will read those books and enjoy.
I am proud of being a friend of HIGH SCHOLAR, HARD WORKING, and KIND HEARTED.

The history of the growth of communication is interesting .We Humans are unique in communicating. As stated we can lead a noble life by this noble gift. Your last para shows your feelings about the communication in the present days and the unmatched actions. Your feelings are well expressed in the last para and beautifully worded with musical words. I pray God to gift the society with noble thoughts so as to deliver sweet communication followed by kind deeds. Thank you Sir, for creating awareness.

Oh ! Narayana ! Oh ! Namasivaya ! You are able to save elephant and you are able to grant life to Markandeyan. Could you not save our great poet Kavi?! I request you to grant REBIRTH to our great poet!

Sir, Your translation is very nice to read and it showed your WITHSTANDING WILLPOWER!
I ALSO PRAY THE Lord to grant MOKSHA to all the above three HOLY SOULS!

We are motivated to live stronger with boldness in mind!

Thanking you sir for bringing this finest article.

Simple, Brave, and courageous leader! He was leader to the poor. He was the king of Education! He earned name and fame! He was the CM in the glorious era.. His HISTORY cannot be forgotten. Thanking you sir.

Sir, wonderful description of noble virtues of PATIENCE. It brings us VICTORIES. It lightens the anger of others during each and every communication. It gives us the ability to think first and then act. It is a wonderful GIFT in customer servicing. It earns respect from elders. Patient hearing helps to build the confidence in the minds of Old-Age people. It gives beauty to our face and handling of any situation becomes easier and lighter.

As you rightly said” MOTHER EARTH” has more patience to have all of us in HER lap.
Thank you, sir, for bringing this GIFT ARTICLE. We thank our MOTHER EARTH also.

Sir, Population issue is rightly discussed. Global Vision is now required to carry out the mission..

Went through the Sunday special.  My praises to Sri Ramamurthy for appreciating your noble noting.
I thank the LORD for having given the senses to understand and realize the ENORMOUS POTENTIAL

Simple shiny Words of Wisdom!


I am sure you would have enjoyed the views of Vasudevan on Envius Thoughts. Thanks.

Blogger N V Subbarman while in service in his office cabin .

Here is the Part XIV of the VIEWER’S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS where we have been giving the views of our regular viewer and commentator Shri OKR Sivagnam who was my colleague in the great Public Sector Undertaking – Life Insurance Corporation of India,  which I proudly served for four decades and more. Shri Sivanganam is regular in viewing ENVIUS THOUGHTS and sending a review thereon on a day today basis. It is a matter of delight that he is as enthusiastic in viewing and reviewing as I am in posting! -religiously meticulous! Kindly read and enjoy. Here we have covered his Reviews in the current year.

An additional aspect is he goes through my very early postings in 2015 till he came in contact with ENVIUS THOUGHTS and makes reviews to the delight of my esteemed viewers.

Part XIII covered upto 1/4/17. Here it is uptodate.

A nice definition of a POEM in your Rhyme and Rhythm or Theme and Content today!
The lyric of a poem loses its lustre and goes hiding from the eyes – physical and mental – of a reader hungry for its content and flow, if it is bereft of the requirements set forth for the purpose!
We reach the ecstatic heights when our heart and soul are sought to be elevated with the powerful aid of fertile imagination flowing graciously as they are from the careful creation of the poet!
The Rhyme and Rhythm and, Theme and Content, referred to in your post are the heart and soul of a poem worth its name, and quite indispensable to perform its function effectively!
The Lord will only be happy to see His devotees’ prayers in words right, playing music to His ears sharp!
Happy to hear the figure 93000- CONGRATS.
Your post today on Cancer Survivor Day ( 4th June) is a nice note to create an awareness on the disease!
A most deadly and destructive condition it’s that the word cancer by itself sends shrill down one’s spine!
The shift in food habits from the one traditionally followed may be one of the main causes that contributed to the enormity of the problem we face today!
What we consume happily is palatable to our taste buds, but not at all taken kindly by our body system, which in turn results in unhealthy physical conditions such as cancer we’re dealing with!
The disservice we render to the original environment compounds the problem to unimaginable proportions!
We’re in a commercial mode that whatever we do invariably consists of the element of returns in financial terms!
What’s ideal for our healthy living is ignored to our peril!
Once cancer enters into our homes uninvited, we become panic, and everything under the sun becomes a thing of dismay, and we begin to lose the purpose of life altogether;
But then, we need to reconcile ourselves to the situation, and face it boldly with its attending inconveniences in order that we may tolerate wholeheartedly and aid in lessening the adverse impacts to the extent possible!
Such a survivor can extend the hope needed by the cancer-suffering people, and be of helpful to them in perceiving the condition as less painful and therefore manageable!
Nice reviews of Prasad on Envius Thoughts -Part 4 on 21/5/17!
I thank him for his appreciation, referring to my comments!
It’s fine that he’s shifting to daily reviewing and reporting on your blogs- from weekly basis earlier!
I’m afraid I’m drifting from my daily sharing- must turn to him for regularity!
His reviews are total and complete in themselves, and can well be followed close to your daily posts for full clarity!
I’m of the humble opinion that he shares your wavelength, as found in his feedback to yours!
God bless him!

Nicely presented is the voice of Rajeev Jha under the series VISITOR’S VOICE-Part 6!
Kudos to Rajeev!
A voice powerful enough to wake us from the deep slumber, and make us enjoy his comments coming afresh straight, with the early morning nice-to-enjoy breeze!
Commenting on his comments may be simply superfluous , for his observation and expression are complete in themselves!
I heard you commented on the effectiveness of sharing and commenting on your daily posts!
Now I fully understand the truth behind your opinion that is as valuable as your posts themselves!
Your post on Young Rajiv the Great appeared on 22/5/17 is a good read!
Leaders are for sure a great boon to a country!
They are a guide to our future leaders in the making!
An exemplary leader represents his / her country, spreads the culture overseas, and brings accolades to his/her motherland!
India can really boast of such leaders to our credit!
We’ve had Mahatma Gandhi who stood for values in life, and spearheaded our war of independence!
Who can forget Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who was the long-serving and successful Prime Minister of our country?
And Rajiv, the youngest Prime Minister of India, and the architect of modern India, remains a living example for our youngsters today!
We’ve inherited leaders of such calibre and fail not to follow their dictates for building a cleaner India, and show the way to other nations of the world!


Your International Family Day post on 15th instant is a nice read!
The small family norm we’ve adopted with the sole aim of making our life self-sustaining has turned out to be a folly, given our pathetic situation, wondering as what to do in our challenging times, often groping in the dark, on the look-out for the right solutions, which otherwise would have been readily available due to the presence of our elders around us!
Realization dawned on us to conclude that our wrong attempt was born out of sheer financial expediency that could only fulfill our wants as and when they occured, losing in the process the all-important peace and mental well-being!
Let us therefore revert to the good old joint family system, and adore our elders by fulfilling their needs in their old age, thereby keeping the family values in tact!

Much more refreshing is your Haiku on Summer on 13/5/17!
Summer may be the hottest season of the year, nevertheless, most welcome for reasons obvious!
For the old and the sick, it’s most unwelcome due to the inconvenience that goes with the scorching sun that is characteristic of heat during the season!
But, for children and adults too, summer promises amusement, fun, and frolic during its presence!
Notwithstanding the aversion due to the heat produced, it brings showers pleasant and presents greenery most appealing to the humans and other living beings!
In winter, we expect to enjoy summer with all its paraphernalia ;
Alternately, we expect summer to exit soon to prevent ourselves from the ill effects of summer- which is mostly to do with the heat and, of course, nothing more than that!
Nature has its own way of treating its creations, and there’s no escape from its impact, favorable or unfavorable!
May we enjoy all seasons whatever they are worth for, and remain thankful to Nature for all the gifts we’re endowed with!

Part 12 of your Journey to Freedom that appeared on 10/5/17 emphasizes the impact of Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 on the successful execution of the strategies adopted for attaining our freedom from the foreign yoke!
The coming together of all sections of people added strength to our war of independence, making the British government dwell on the proposition of slowly yielding to the designs of our freedom fighters, and think in terms of their exit once and for all from India!
The grit and determination, and the perseverance shown by our leaders was really challenging to the invader, who could no longer pursue their cruel rule on the foreign soil!

Part 10 of your Journey to Freedom shows how our patriotic leaders and followers had viewed their sacrifices an enjoyment in their mission towards freedom for our Motherland!

On return from South Africa, Mahatma made Sabarmati Ashram his home, and also the home to many important decisions concerning our Freedom Struggle!

Dandi March was one among the many programmes launched by M K Gandhi to make unity among the people the cornerstone behind the movements that was baffling and irritating to the British raj!

Considering the goal of independence, the sacrifices made were not an issue at all for the fighting band of truthful soldiers!
And this exactly acted as a morale booster for the leader, who was none other than Mahatmaji,to go ahead with the fight relentlessly!
Your Journey to Freedom (Part 9) is a nice read!
The name that comes before us when a reference is made to Andaman& Nicobar in connexion with our freedom struggle is Sarvarkar and his role in the mission towards independence!
How cruel was the torture meted out to our freedom fighters, can be seen in the special shows being exhibited in the Andaman cells!
To understand the sacrifices, and to revere them, the youngsters must visit Andaman and know for themselves what could be the nature of atrocities undergone by the fighters on the field!
This is one instance that stands as the proof for the activities of our patriotic people under the leadership of M K Gandhi, in arriving at the goal of independence for our Motherland!

A nice post on Press Freedom Day!
A tied press never helps in adoration of democratic principles!
Freedom of speech and expression is a constitutional requirement that must never be defied!
Indifference to this aspect is otherwise a death knell to democracy!
Nowadays political interference in press freedom kills the spirit behind a free and fair press!
Paid news has become the order of the day, and the famously called fourth pillar of democracy has lost its power to the political class – a worse trend indeed!
People have the right to true news, and this should never be sought to be crushed in the name of dancing to the tunes of powers that be!
Let the press be instrumental in creating a harmonious society, putting an end to sensationalism in news reporting!

World Penguin Day post on 25/4/17 is a nice read!
Whatever created in this world has a definite purpose to fulfill for the humanity to prosper with love, peace, and harmony nicely embracing it!
We must be happy about it for its sheer power of making co-existence with all other living beings, a definite possibility!
All the 18 species of penguins are found in the southern hemisphere , and according to the scientists, their population and well being are the indicators of Antarctica, the earth’s most frozen continent in the world.
Like us the humans, penguins too get threatened due to the erratic climate!
And again, it’s a social being like us, and would like to live and swim in groups!
Its power of recognition is great to the extent that it can easily recognise its mate and young ones, say in a large group!
It’s reported that most of the penguins practice monogamy, and stick to one partner even in situations where they are separated and living thousands of miles away – a lesson for us to practice diligently!

Your World Malaria Day post on 25/4/17 serves to create an awareness on the deadly malaria and how to avoid it for a healthy living!
Health is wealth – so goes the adage to remember and get benefited!
We must be healthy to enjoy the fruits of life;
But little we do care about our surroundings, and as a result, render it unhygienic to live!
And our careless attitude becomes the cause of many diseases we suffer from!
We’re responsible for the stagnant water, a breeding ground for the mosquitos to attack us with malaria ;
25th April being the Malaria Day observed through the length and breadth of the world , is a day for us to be aware of the healthy way of living and endeavor to make the theme of the year” End Malaria for Good “, a reality and live happily for ever!

Journey to Freedom( Part 8 ) on 27/4/17 is a good read!
History of our freedom struggle against the British has a lot to convey especially to the youngsters!
An awareness on the sacrifices behind our freedom will make one realize the need for love of the nation to be able to take responsibilities in right earnest for the common cause of our Motherland!
Good governance is the need of the hour and so it’s pertinent that our leaders do not forget the integrity -factor while running the affairs of the State!
M K Gandhi through his selfless activities, rose and successfully fought against the invader, and in this long process , launched the Satyagraha movement in Champaran to support the cause of farmers when confronted with poverty due to the indigo plantation issue!
The examples of the likes of Mahatma Gandhi must boost the spirit of of our leaders, current and future, in ensuring the right governance for the common weal of the people!

I enjoyed your post on MOUNTAINS on 28/4/17!
We cannot and should not blame the Nature’s creations!
Everyone of them contributes to the wellness of all living things !
Mountains for that matter, are a calm destination that ensures a peaceful mind , with no deviations to disturb the serene state!
Living in and around a mountain is a gift bestowed on the humankind by the great Almighty!
Environmental degradation is the prime cause of many problems we face today ;
It’s therefore our responsibility to guard against all sorts of exploitation to keep it as it’s, for all of us to enjoy the beauty of mountains, otherwise known as the natural borders!
Our encroachment in nature’s ways is bound to backfire and leave us wondering how to get out of the situation and lead a peaceful life!
Let us therefore think it over and mend ourselves for the better!

Your post on Rivers on 29/4/17 explains how they are a gift to all living beings!
Can we imagine our life sans water?
Obviously we cannot, and also according to Thiruvalluvar, the saintly poet of Tamil Nadu!
Rivers are a great source of our sustenance through their supply of abundant water- of course, in anticipation of nothing in return from the beneficiaries!
In the absence of sufficient water, getting our daily quota of food will remain a dream never to be fulfilled!
It’s for the mankind to ensure the sacredness of rivers through non-interference in their course of flow!
May we not obstruct its journey, by dumping garbages in rivers, as often resorted to unscrupulously by us in the name of keeping our own homes neat and tidy!
This much is for this Sunday story.

We shall meet on Monday as usual, till then all the best.

K V V S Prasad  from Vishakapatnam-former colleague of N V Subbaraman


Out of innumerable viewers of ENVIUS THOUGHTS there are a few who regularly give a response often quite inspiring and make the Blog continue despite the strain and stress involved in maintaining the Blog with a daily posting.
Mr. K V V S Prasad. was my colleague when I was with LIC of India, a great Organization from which I retired almost 16 years ago. We served together in Kadapa Division of Andhra Pradesh. After his superannuation he is settled in his native town Vishakapatnam. He is one of the communicating viewers and this Sunday story gives his responses to the ENVIUS THOUGHTS which I am sure will prove an interesting read. This is the Part IV and the Part III was posted in the Blog on 25/12/2016.

Your blog has become a gate way for Great interactions and finding a place in it in the form of your appraisal on our views is itself a fortune. It equally makes us more responsible and orients us towards further refinement Sir! With regards and Christmas Greetings Sir!
Like the Flamingo Bird you had a quick dash to Nellore , enthralled the audience at Nellore with a poetic excellence ,migrated back to the Tamil Land with your engagement fulfilled in Trivandrum Kerala What a coincidence! Happy New Year!
The supreme sacrifice of Kattabomman in the process of liberation of India from British rule is always remembered by all the right thinking Indians and his valour and courage is echoed in their heart. Thank you for your great information.
Congrats sir
I remember you telling about your being away from coffee. Tamilnadu is a pro coffee state .The fondness for coffee was age old.I think you stood against the coffee nut firmly. I also remember that when other colleagues in Audit Department of Your Team were frantically waiting for a cup of morning coffee ,you were waiting for your Hindu News paper
A man can truly rise if he conquers greed and supremacy over others and by throwing away the animal Instinct. Thus he becomes immortal! Nice Sir!
Congratulations Sir for crossing 77k mark!
Many Patriotic Sons of Mother India by their collective struggle. Lala Lajpat Rai is such a noble Son. A true patriot, reformist and known as Punjab Kesari and it is our fortune to commemorate his birthday.
As rightly expressed by you we need another Mahatma rising from his Grave to set the society in order. Really the principles followed by him, the values preserved by him, the path followed by him are eye openers for those in power! Martyr’s day or Sarvodaya day should not remain as another day as felt by you!
The Mahatma is known for his compassion. Ant leprosy day fills in the minds of people the martyrdom of this saintly person. It is our fortune to live in the land where He lived.

Sir You are always at High pedestal .The love at heart, Values cherished, friendliness exhibited, purity of thoughts ,path followed by you were always a matter of emulation. We, as young constituents of your team were amused to hear you and proud of being your team .As rightly expressed by you we were close .I do not know how I missed my Chennai days with you .Perhaps I have gained the art of expressing orally and in writing as time progressed. My present post is to place before you the valuable.

Kalpana Chawla sacrificed her life for a cause. The supreme sacrifice of her goes in the annals of India’s space research
Congratulations Sir!

Great and Noble Lady! Wonderful to know about her!
The cause of cancer, as you felt, is not known and suffering of the patients is unbound. It is useful. To note that Tulasi, if consumed regularly , it act as a deterrent. Losing loved ones by due to this reason is painful. Proper research and painless treatment and improving the survival rate will give solace to mankind.
Squirrel is an extraordinary creation ,jumping and dancing, singing and surging ,blessed with Lord’s fondle and reminding us of Great love ,dedication, Friendship and duty .It equally wakes us up early in the morning with its activity on the nearby rooftops and trees eating sweet fruits greeting us . Nice to note.
Saplings are compared to young children. The flexible will survive. True. Saplings sing, dance and move with humans. They give breeze while growing , give fruits so sweet when grown Song of a sapling started the day with a positive note.

Squirrel is a pure vegetarian with abundant energy. What an wonderful creation of the God.

Seeking pleasure is wrong but singing in praise of The Giver the intellectual , spiritual power is always pure and gives happiness to body and soul All the creations of God ,rightly observed by you ,should join in this Mahagana to attain mahagnana !

Sparrow is associated with us all through our life. Friend of everybody , especially children, moving here and there ,flying far and near, eating plenty, making sounds, pleasing everybody, small and beautiful, this tiny bird is on the verge of extinction and soon may become a part of history. The sparrow represents humility, singing in praise of God the song of divinity and simplicity. As we lost our dear elders and keep in store their memories, so also we keep in our memory this little friend also who is in the brink of extinction.

Song of the Saint is the need of the hour. Saints are servants of the society .They fill the society with positive thoughts and work for the well being of society. They are neither teachers nor preachers, as rightly observed, but constant learners. They thrive to bring harmony and peace to the society.

The Adiseshu Has created the human beings and other species to live in harmony. Serpents are more sinned against than sinning. Human beings on one hand worship them and on the other, are afraid of the reptiles. In the process they render the serpents homeless along with their progeny. Rightly observed serpents his only to protect them as they have no voice.. Living in harmony should be developed by humans who are endowed with intelligence and also physical strength mostly. Your concern is reflected in these stanzas. Similar was your concern from our Kadapa days.

Gotham Karmakar’s interview was simply brilliant. He made an Avishkar of your complete personality. Unknown facts like your Grandfather being a Great advocate, your initiation as as a poet, your preferences, your inroads into haiku with rhyming. Interesting IMG to note Madam’s observation about your poetry as nursery rhymes. Great facts , your bilingual poetry , your philosophy, your place, your opinion about future of poetry ,your advice to the younger ones, your interests, your disinclination to try fiction, your freedom for subjects of interest ,your comments on royalty on books published reflect your values. Nice feast on a Great Sunday Sir!
More facts 300sft accommodation and Invaluable Viswanathan Iyer(my father’s name is also Viswanatham) propagating values Known facts. Your distance from Coffee nut Nice to remember!
Dear sir
You have brought forth the day as the day before the day of sacrifice of the Saint Valentine for his Noble deeds. Thank you for giving the origin.
Extraordinary post. The word transcreation is interesting. The article in Indian periodical is interesting. Translation of Great works among Indian languages is a sure way of uniting people and bridging the gap and paving the way of understanding!
What a great expression of love! Random thoughts are simple and beautiful. I really wonder the way you select words, narrate instances, create subject matters in a simple way and place them before readers .Helping somebody to cross the road, assisting the differently abled, helping someone to change the tire, appreciating someone ,patting for good work done are simple expressions of immense value .Nice note Have a great day Sir!
Ramakrishna paramahamsa was a great Saint mother Bharath has given birth and his role in propagating spirituality is immense. He was a path finder for his disciple Vivekanand to follow. Great saints and scholars have born in this Great country and the aura of spirituality surrounded is a great value addition for generations to follow. Nice note sir.
As rightly observed Sri Shivagnanam gives his review to NVS Thoughts on a daily basis almost. It is easy to keep track if such regularity is maintained. Apart from this the depth of the review is admirable. I also shifted to this pattern from a weekly response. The remarks of Shivagnanam are themselves treasure islands and give scope for better understanding of the noble thoughts. Nice note to begin the day with!
Thank you for giving information of first Canadian flag and it’s adoptatation of a new form with a maple leaf with simple white and red Colors. Each country is unique and it’s flag is its pride and strength!
Shivaji Maharaj was Maratta pride and the noble Son of India. Known for his valor this great warrior has become the Pride of India. He is respected by all Indians as an icon of shivelry! The Nation pays its homage and reverence to this Legendary personality!
Mother language has the warmth of the mother. We have to master our mother language. English is the link language. We have to master it too to progress. Mother language day is excellent. Sir.
World Thinking day is thought provoking! People have to grow , using the brain they are endowed with ,to become great !
Man can think, think, think and achieve the Moon and Sun for pure Great words and deeds follow creative thoughts in this nice world Hence the need to engage the minds in active thoughts bold! Great and creative thoughts will emerge only if Human brains are put to optimum use for constructive purposes. Really this will entail the mankind in a creative bliss, free from any danger ,full of love for fellow beings making the world an inhabitable heaven reflecting the true meaning of growth. —Further thoughts on your wonderful post Sir
Universe , an unknown panorama filled with the galaxy ,Sun ,stars, plannets,moving and holding positions in a particular fashion, bound by magnetic force and mathematical equations, travelling at specific speeds ,filled with in with layers of hydrogen – information immense in value!
Your Noble Thoughts are celebrating their 2nd birthday! My good wishes to you and the fraternal literary buds that blossom the moment you express your thoughts! SWOT is Sweet! You are blessed with a very Sharp imagination blended with extraordinary expression. Your commands are always young. You are blessed by Vaagdevi! I wish you many more years of literary extravaganza.
Four has assumed multiple dimensions in your panoramic analysis. You have not left any area/ idea touching FOUR in our life be it humanities or mathematics. Four way Grids in the form of SWOT analysis and Johari Window in explaining Concepts in Behavioral Sciences etc FOUR represents symmetry and uniformity The FOUR padas of Dharma explain the social well being of people. The four stages of life Shaishavam. Childhood, Youth and old-age The four purusharth also is an example of importance of FOUR Really I started trying my little fingers with interest to understand the inseparability! I also understood FOUR can draw so much information worth noting and understanding. Thank you Sir for your nice note Prasad
Congrats sir
National science day bringing out significance of science in a country’s development celebrated in North of Sir C V Raman is nice!

India that is my Bharath is my sacred and holy Motherland. One of the oldest countries on earth- its age cannot be assessed-it is timeless, beyond times, its culture, civilization, languages, principles, practices, philosophy and so on.
What is deemed to be modern Science or Mathematics, Economics or Commerce, Engineering or Medicine they were all in the day to day use of ancient India!
The great languages and precious literature were part of this land! West looking for this East for peace and composure, thoughts-religious and spiritual is as ancient as our Motherland.


Let us have a glance at the ancient personalities who made our country great through their contribution from the days of yore in various fields of human  activities and welfare:

Sushruta (600 BCE)
Born to sage Vishwamitra, Sushruta is the father of surgery. 2600 years ago, he and health scientists of his time conducted complicated surgeries like cesareans, cataract, artificial limbs, Rhinoplasty (restoration of a damaged nose), 12 types of fractures, 6 types of dislocations, urinary stones and even plastic surgery and brain surgery. Usage of anesthesia was well known in ancient India. Author of the book “Sushruta Samhita”, in which he describes over 300 surgical procedures and 125 surgical instruments, including scalpels, lancets, needles, catheters and rectal speculums; mostly designed from the jaws of animals and birds. He has also described a number of stitching methods; the use of horse’s hair as thread and fibers of bark.

BharadwajaAlso known as Bharadwaj Gotra, a descendant of rishi Angira (vedic sage who wrote most of the Atharva Veda). Lord Rama along with Sita and Lakshmana (in the epic Ramayana) met many rishis and sages including Bharadwaja.

Acharya Bharadwaja authored the ” Yantra Sarvasva ” which includes astonishing and outstanding discoveries in aviation science, space science and flying machines. He has described three categories of flying machines: (1) One that flies on earth from one place to another. (2) One that travels from one planet to another. (3) And one that travels from one universe to another.
An ancient rishi, the Saptarishi. He was the father of the Devas, Asuras, and all humankind. He was the son of Marichi and Aditi.
Patanjali (200 BCE)
Called the father of Yoga. The Science of Yoga is one of several unique contributions of India to the world. It seeks to discover and realize the ultimate Reality through yogic practices. Acharya Patanjali , the founder, hailed from the district of Gonda (Ganara) in Uttar Pradesh . He prescribed the control of prana (life breath) as the means to control the body, mind and soul. This subsequently rewards one with good health and inner happiness.
Acharya Patanjali ‘s 84 yogic postures effectively enhance the efficiency of the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive and endocrine systems and many other organs of the body. Yoga has eight limbs where Acharya Patanjali shows the attainment of the ultimate bliss of God in samadhi through the disciplines of: yam, niyam, asan, pranayam, pratyahar, dhyan and dharna.
Kanad (600 BCE)Founder of Atomic Theory. As the founder of “Vaisheshik Darshan” – one of six principal philosophies of India – Acharya Kanad was a genius in philosophy. He is believed to have been born in Prabhas Kshetra near Dwarika in Gujarat. He was the pioneer expounder of realism, law of causation and the atomic theory. He has classified all the objects of creation into nine elements, namely: earth, water, light, wind, ether, time, space, mind and soul. He says, “Every object of creation is made of atoms which in turn connect with each other to form molecules.” His statement ushered in the Atomic Theory for the first time ever in the world, nearly 2,500 years before John Dalton . Kanad has also described the dimension and motion of atoms and their chemical reactions with each other. The eminent historian, T.N. Colebrook , has said, “Compared to the scientists of Europe, Kanad and other Indian scientists were the global masters of this field.”
Kapila (3000 BCE)
Called the Father of Cosmology. Acharya Kapil was born in 3000 BCE to the illustrious sage Kardam and Devhuti. He also gifted the world with the Sankhya School of Thought. His pioneering work threw light on the nature and principles of the ultimate Soul (Purusha), primal matter (Prakruti) and creation. His concept of transformation of energy and profound commentaries on atma, non-atma and the subtle elements of the cosmos places him in an elite class of master achievers – incomparable to the discoveries of other cosmologists. On his assertion that Prakruti, with the inspiration of Purusha, is the mother of cosmic creation and all energies.
Bhaskaracharya He calculated the time taken by the earth to orbit the sun hundreds of years before the astronomer Smart; Time taken by earth to orbit the sun: (5th century) 365.258756484 days. Born in the obscure village of Vijjadit (Jalgaon) in Maharastra, Bhaskaracharya’s mathematical works called “Lilavati” and “Bijaganita” are considered to be unparalleled. In his treatise “Siddhant Shiromani” he writes on planetary positions, eclipses, cosmography, mathematical techniques and astronomical equipment. In the “Surya Siddhant” he makes a note on the force of gravity: “Objects fall on earth due to a force of attraction by the earth. Therefore, the earth, planets, constellations, moon, and sun are held in orbit due to this attraction.” Bhaskaracharya was the first to discover gravity, 500 years before Sir Isaac Newton.

Chanakya (370–283 BCE)
Chanakya or Vishnu Gupta or Kautilya (his gotra) was a teacher to the first Maurya Emperor Chandragupta – the first emperor in the archaeologically recorded history to rule the complete Indian Subcontinent.
He authored the ancient Indian political treatise called Arthasastra. Chanakya is considered as the pioneer of the field of economics and political science and his work is thought of as an important precursor to Classical Economics. Chanakya’s works predate Machiavelli’s by about 1,800 years. Chanakya was a teacher in Takshashila, an ancient centre of learning.
A Hindu philosopher who lived during the reign of the Gupta Empire (4th – 6th century AD), is believed to be the author of the Kama Sutra. In the second chapter , Vatsyayana describes 64 kama-kalas, or ways to make love. These are not 64 positions, but the categories of different modes of lovemaking, namely ’embracing, kissing, scratching, biting, the positions, moaning, the woman playing the man’s part, and oral sex.’ As each of these modes of sex is supposed to have eight different particular manifestations, there are thus sixty-four ways in which a man or woman could be said to be having sex in its broadest sense. But kama-kalas are not just tools for successful love making, they also lie at the heart of what constitutes an educated man.

The famous poet and the author of the epic Ramayana.

Panini (600 BCE)Panini is known for his Sanskrit grammar, particularly for his formulation of the 3,959 rules of Sanskrit syntax and grammar known as Ashtadhyayi (“eight chapters”), the foundational text of the grammatical branch of the Vedanga, the auxiliary scholarly disciplines of Vedic religion.
Nagarjuna (100 CE)Born in the village of Baluka in Madhya Pradesh, his dedicated research produced maiden discoveries and inventions in the faculties of chemistry and metallurgy, like “Ras Ratnakar”, “Rashrudaya” and “Rasendramangal”. As the author of medical books like “Arogyamanjari” and “Yogasar,” he also made significant contributions to the field of curative medicine. He was appointed as Chancellor of the famous University of Nalanda.

One of the Saptarishis. He was the Maanasa-putra (“a brain child”) of Brahma. He possessed the divine cow known as Kamadhenu and the Kamadhenu’s child Nandini. Vashishtha is the author of some parts in the Rigveda.

An ancient rishi, a great philosopher of the Mimansa school. He was the son of wandering rishi Parashara, and a disciple of Veda Vyasa.

Varahamihira (499-587 CE)Varahamihir’s book “panch siddhant”, noted that the moon and planets are lustrous not because of their own light but due to sunlight. In the “Bruhad Samhita” and “Bruhad Jatak”, he has revealed his discoveries in the domains of geography, constellation, science, botany and animal science. In his treatise on botanical science, Varahamihir presents cures for various diseases afflicting plants and trees.
Some of the other sages were:
Astika (the son of Manasa and Jaratkaru, the Vyasa of the twenty-seventh Dwapara) Atri (A legendary scholar and a son of Brahma – a Sapta Rishi)
Bhrigu (One of the Saptarishis and one of the Prajapatis (and Maanasa Putra – a brain child) that Brahma created as facilitators of creation)
Kraustuki (Markandeya’s disciple)
Kripacharya (an important character in the Mahabharata; one of the Chiranjivin (the “immortals”).

Paráshara (A Rigvedic Maharishi and author of many ancient Indian texts. He was the grandson of Vasishtha and the author of some verses in the Rigveda)
Prahlada (amahajana – that is, a “great devotee”, in the puranic Vaishnava traditions).

Shukra (son of Bhrigu)
Vaishampayana (the original teacher of the Black Yajur-Veda)

There are several notable female rishikas who contributed to the composition of the Vedic scriptures. The Rig Veda mentions Romasha, Lopamudra, Apala, Kadru, Visvavara, Ghosha, Juhu, Vagambhrini, Paulomi, Yami, Indrani, Savitri, and Devajami. The Sama Veda adds Nodha, Akrishtabhasha, Sikatanivavari and Gaupayana.
India’s other contributions to the world:
India’s greatest gift to Humanity – Mathematical innovations include ZERO; use of DECIMAL NUMBERS and DICE.
Budhayana explained in the 6th century, the concept of what is known as the Pythagorean Theorem, long before the European mathematicians.
Algebra, trigonometry and calculus came from India; Quadratic equations were by Sridharacharya in the 11th century; The largest numbers the Greeks and the Romans used were (10 to the power of 6) whereas Hindus used numbers as big as (10 to the power of 53) with specific names as early as 5000 BC during the Vedic period. Even today, the largest used number is Tera 1012 (10 to the power of 12).
By 1,500 BC, Indians used figures like square, circle, rectangle, angles, triangle, fractions, algebraic formulae and astronomy and metaphysics.
The art of Navigation was born in the river Sindh 6000 years ago. The very word Navigation is derived from the Sanskrit word NAVGATIH. The word navy is also derived from Sanskrit ‘Nou’.
The earliest reservoir and dam for irrigation was built in Saurashtra. According to Saka King Rudradaman I of 150 BC a beautiful lake called ‘Sudarshana’ was constructed on the hills of Raivataka during Chandragupta Maurya’s time.
Originated in India – Pharmacology, brain surgery, medicine, artificial colors and glazes, metallurgy, re-crystallization, chemistry, textile production, hydraulic engineering, water powered devices, etc.


There are several success stories like Rabindranath Tagore (1913 Nobel Prize in Literature), CV Raman (1930 Nobel prize for Raman effect), JC Bose’s discovery of microwaves by 1895 and Prof. Jagdeesh Bose (USA based IEEE has proved what has been a century-old suspicion in the world scientific community that the pioneer of Wireless communication was not Marconi).

In such a back ground of Indian history, it is not surprising that another great personality was bestowed to the Bharath by Bengal –RABINDRANATH TAGORE-whose 156th birth day is today. Here is my humble poetic tribute to him:

“Bard of Bengal was born today years hundred and fifty five ago
Brought fame to India that is Bharath winning Nobel prize sans ego
Founder of Shanthi Nikethan and  spread Upanishadic values
Of education-  reformer and Bahma samajist of value!

A poet, writer, painter of excellence-Gandhiji’s trusted friend
Through his nobility of thoughts and writings set a  valuable trend
Won the Nobel prize for his song celestial GITANJALI-wealth a mass!”

Tagore was honored with the Nobel Prize for his immortal GEETHANJALI-Song offerings- originally written by him in Bengali and later translated by himself into English. …
The Nobel Prize in Literature 1913 was awarded to Rabindranath Tagore “because of his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, by which, with consummate skill he gave this work to the world.”

In his “SONG Offerings” , Tagore finds the way out to unite the soul with divinity  uses modernized images  from the great classical Indian love poetry to symbolize his yearning to merge with the Supreme.Therefore, the mud stained traveler, the parched summer earth, the bride awaiting the return of her lord, the first monsoon shower, the flowers,  the rivers and  the conch are images which gain a mystical depth in these poems.
On this holy day of Rabindranath Tagore’s 156th  birth anniversary ENVIUS THOUGHTS pays its homage to him in the shape of this Sunday Story.

Shri Ramamurthi Thupakula my former colleague with his better half.


I am ever grateful to the Lord Almighty-the Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent- who directs me in all my activities and in particular who guided me to WordPress and with HIS grace I picked up, launched my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in, on 25/2/2015, gradually built up the viewership and I am indeed proud of my esteemed viewers from more than 200 countries. As of now total views have exceeded 66000 and one of my regular viewers is Shri Ramamurthi Thupakula my former colleague in the great Life Insurance Corporation of India of which I was a part and parcel for more than four decades. In fact LIC continues to be our HOME. He lives in Bangalore and regularly sends his responses on my posts. Here is a compendium of his responses as Part II as my Sunday story this week. I am sure my friends will enjoy the same as they did his part I published on 17/1/17

Very nice. Automatically the title itself bring smile to us. The pigs are also cute. Happy smiles! Enjoy the appetizers and snacks.
World penguin day is very attractive day. It is a feast for eyes eyes. For me viewing penguin is like seeing a man in a dignified suit. In print media the big and costly books are supplied at common mans range as penguin series. Thanks sir for a hearty reminder of penguins’ day.
Thanks sir for gently reminding us regarding earth day. We are earth and climate illiterate. As poet. Kalidasa before his enlightenment was cutting the branch of tree on which he was sitting, we’re digging our peril by inflicting injuries on bhoomata. Vriksho rakshathi rakshitaha. If we protect the trees they will protect us. Let us play our part.
INNOVATION And creativity are the two fine attributes given to mankind. Man has to sharpen and develop it . Focus on the main issue. Once two friends were walking through forest. Lion roared. One of them used to wear the boots. The other friend asked would it help running faster than lion. For this reply came that he can run faster than his friend. This is how we waste our creativity in false comparison rather than tapping our full creativity. Thanks for reminding the day of innovation and creativity.
Light passes through glass and water. The same light reflects through glass and water. Such is the amazing power and elasticity of light. Light creates, flourishes and destroyed in spiritual sense also. Nice journey of light on chariot on wheels.
A picturesque view of chariot on wheels. A beautiful tiny flower receiving source of power from universal power in the backdrop of natural indradhanush . Sir you have summarized the philosophy and science of chariot on wheels both with the poem and scene.
Hundreds and thousands of souls contributed all their mite in get
Getting freedom. We salute dheeran kongu for his tireless efforts.
Valluvar kottam is fine monument. Until pointed out by you I am ignorant that such a fine monument is present in Chennai Nungambakam. Present masters of art of living and modern personality development gurus are only next to Thiruvallur and his masterpiece Thirukkural. The two wings before entrance represents to which heights the human intellect can rise. Thank you sir.
Nice blend of noble ideas and divine aspirations. Years come years go. Let lofty vibrations generated on the eve of Tamil new year day. Good Friday, Vishu festival along with just now gone ‘Hevilambi’ ignite and keep ever fresh the fragrance of “hurt never and help ever”.
Jalianwalabag incident is one of the saddest atrocities perpetuated on innocent citizens of India. Dyer is ever remembered for this drastic act. We have to owe much of our respects to the great ordinary people of India once again. Thanks sir for reminding the great event. We bow down our heads in deep respect.
A really deserved day for street children. They do not. Know how they entered world leading a Long and miserable journey of life. It is true today’s children are tomorrows citizens as cautioned by great Nehru. To the extent possible let us offer our hands in molding their and our future!
Pleasant to view Birla house. If lam correct we are witnessing the completion of 100 yrs of Champaran satyagrah today.
Happy to share your onward journey. Greetings!
The Agra fort is a landmark in our journey towards freedom struggles. The grandeur of Rajput buildings underlines many stories of valor and courage. Agra from the hands of Rajputs, Sikander to Akbar and till the Indian mutiny 1857 till complete liberty is a story of constant struggle and achievements. Still we have to know much. Thanks sir for taking us to Agra!
Jagan on envious thoughts is worth perusing and add anew and worthy dimension. It gives a new encouragement. I sincerely hail his opinions.
The sitting pose of Mahavira Jain itself gives great solace and comfort. I found no difference between Buddha and Mahavira. No harm even to germs.
Health is. Wealth. A good adage! Preached rarely practiced at individual level, society level and governmental levels. But from individual arena contribute our effort in enlightening and spreading the message of health awareness. Sir you have pointed out that on March 1948 world health organization was formed, then why it is being celebrated on 7 th April?
The journey to freedom is long and strenuous. A new angle added by Gandhi. Instead of making people strong physically, he made them mentally strong and committed to the e of freedom. They are simple but high in their conviction.
Their conviction is well presented in the photo stills. He awakened the inner strength and took India to greater heights.
It is a great privilege to make journey of Indian history through its ups and downs. A sacred and peaceful area invaded by alien forces. Perseverance is the solution offered by ancestors.
Please accept our heartiest congratulations on the eve of 85000 views. Not only destination but the journey itself is pleasant.
I found the content useful and relevant. You have furnished the map of ancient India where the Mauryas, Pathans, Satavahana, Chola and Pandyans existed but never united. Only the religion was binding force. As Rajeev Jah rightly pointed only in 1857 the unity bond appeared. I hope you will elucidate with your simple rhymes and stories. You’re the creator of feast. We wait further!
Journey to Indian freedom is a vast subject and your effort to make the younger generation in its right perspective is a must. Not only for young but even for elders also it is of great relevance. The unity thread has to be preserved and nurtured. Welcoming your gesture we eagerly await for your series!
A thing of beauty is joy forever. A nice treatise. Sir along with Keats and yourself you took us for a real joyride underlining the significance of Hindu philosophy “aham bramhasmi”. The beauty lies in the beholder as well as the object. For an ordinary person the falling of dew drops makes no difference. But for a poetic mind of Rabindranath Tagore the same view of drops falling on leaf became a source of inspiration to pen beautiful lyrics. You have provided us a thing of beauty that is joy forever.
Very nicely analysis presented by you. Rajeev Jhaji!
Sir, you have taken us for a mysterious ride on chariot on wheels 33. Some aspects we understood. Some we are unable. But we cherished your spirit in taking us to greater heights of understanding. You proved vakyam rasatmakam kavyam even in mysterious universal arena !
Thanks for introducing us to the history and magnificence of Paris Eifel tower built during 1899. It is the culmination human power with blend of faith. A monument of perseverance. Very nice of you sir!
A magnificent fight for freedom in a restraining manner of truth and ahimsa where even ladies fought under the guidance of Mahatma a very nice ideal to cherish. Thank you sir for bringing back those memories with photos available at that time.
Sir happy Ugadhi. Welcome the yug ie era and adhi ie beginning. The beginning of the time in sixty slaughts in the eternal wheelbase and rotating eternally. Every moment is a blend of pleasure and pain. Accept with neem and jaggery blend prasad. Ohm santhi.
Weed appreciation day. A good and gentle reminder. In life gardening good thoughts have to be nourished and bad thoughts have to be segregated. Waste thoughts and negative thoughts have to be gently separated. Positive thoughts blossom!
Good morning. Happy to note the significance of world theatre day. Every soul is a player sent by Almighty! Each atma has to understand it’s role and play properly. This will help other players to perform well. Swaparivartan aur samsar ka parivartan.
Hail onward journey of kavinilavu.
Beauty at its best. Joy and happiness rolled in one. That is tulip. Very refreshing to view in the morning. A unique message
Very nice of you to benefit us by presenting a true version of Ashokmitra . Even though he restricted himself to Tamil arena his contribution to the unity of humanity is admirable. I feel still he is amidst us. Particularly I am very much delighted the way your journalist son introducing Ashokmitra to us. Our special admiration and blessings still to blossom.
An apt testimony of what we give out the same and more will be returned with bouquets. With pleasant vibrations!
Unite and fight tuberculosis. A worthy message! First step proper awareness. Second step strict adherence.
World meteorological day reminded us the gravity of the situation. But man in his urgency is ignoring the perils and is axing on which the branch which he stands. Let’s increase the awareness to face the terrible situations ahead!
Let us resolve to use water and waste water with diligence. Nice message with simple picture. We are well aware to use water. You added a new dimension to manage waste water also. Definitely we adhere to it and ought to be.
Sir, definitely poetry is the result of sensitivity in contemplation resulting in flowery language conveying aptly. That is a divine gift. My emphasis is prose also should be encouraged in addition to poetical talent. You deviated from traditional poetry to haiku successfully. We aren’t able to enjoy your Tamil verses in its true fragrance. Of course your translation make us to enjoy heartily taking us near that aura. With respects to kavinilavu.
I still remember your presentation of business figures with equal ease in Telugu as that of English at agents meet at Proddatur. How I can forget your ease at Telugu. We used to admire your proficiency in Hindi and Tamil. Yours presence is a happy remembrance to cherish. It will automatically bring happy smile. While I am going through your thoughts i have to now and then help my wife in her cooking and miscellaneous works due to orthopedic-ally disabled at old age. That is why there is no continuity in presenting my thoughts. Excuse me for getting personal factors. With regards.
It is very freshening to highlight and welcome budding young poets. Not only poets but also talented in prose have to be encouraged. What we have to cherish is the capacity of expression with flavor. Bright little stars blossom further!
From everything we have to learn. Crow’s message is
worth emulating. Crow is known for its discretion and is in association with various life activities. Mothers first introduced us by showing a crow and make us eat and to give them rest in our backyard. A nice treatise.

I am pleasantly surprised to have the revelations of kavinilavui with the highest dignitary Sri. Harikrishnan Chaudary. Let your further onward literary and philosophical journey a source of real enlightenment.
It is a happy occasion to remember Leonove for his first walk in the space. It is the culmination of imagination, scientific understanding and excellent team work. Salutes to Leonov and the entire team behind.
Moving clouds a nice scenario of life is worth seeing without being tired. Immediately Meghasandesa of Kalidasa appears on our mental horizon. The famous Telugu director B N Reddy evolved epic celluloid. Malleswari in which the moving clouds appear as a nice backdrop. lt achieved President’s award. Nice for invoking worthy thoughts.
Clean and pure water free from bacteria. A reality fifty years ago. We used to consume water directly during our youth from the wells. Now we cannot get those days back. Let’s utilize the opportunity before us. Vaccinate properly and protect the generation.
It is very heartening to celebrate the birthday of Einstein. His way of scientific approach can be summarized as under. Understand the rules of game. Then you will be a better player. With this background he paved way for further progress of mankind.
Holy the reflection of kaleidoscope aspects of life in various shades of human emotions. With greetings.
Sun rays spends in time and sleep in time. Where the rays can’t enter it became dark and gravitational force emerging as force. We have to admit that no person is as intelligent and effective as sun rays. A factual thought!
Universe beyond our comprehension. The fallen objects shattered, implosive and explosive evolving into earth and other planets really presents marvelous wonder. We are nothing but powers of minute particles. Let’s live completely bowing down before mighty chariot!

The great scientist Stephen Hawkins warned humanity to be careful in preserving unique aspects of the earth . Otherwise humanity can be extinguished.
Congrats! Running relentlessly. We are all behind you towards cherished Goa
Seen and unseen! Existing within and with the rays of light leading us to eternal and existing truths! What a fine blend of science and art. Very much elated to view rays of real knowledge and wisdom.
Salutes on the eve of international women’s day. Be bold for change. Women in changing world of work. The contribution in inculcating the reading habit of my mother is such that while there used to be thunders she encouraged me to read krishna satakam and sumathi satakam. My three daughters including one adopted daughter are a source of inspiration to lead happy life. I feel elated on this worthy day.
Yes. The animal cruelty in the world so increased that at present one by third of animal species decreased and by 2050 two by thirds will be eliminated. Sad affair!
Conscience is a highly deserved word and force to reckon with. As a layman i assume it the epitome behind body, mind and actions. Gandhi’s humility and nobility can be gazed from his regards to bent before the conscience power of each soul. From tiny things to noble things clear conscience is required ro perceive and execute. Let’s practice to the best extent possible without mental laziness. Fortunately today happens to be Mahasamadhi day of Kriyayogi Yogananda who emphasized on the clear conscience of need to change. Once again towards clean conscience power.
Dance in unison like peacocks in the sky. These pleasant thoughts i missed for one day due to illness and for two days no opportunity due to internet failure. Hereafter i will be blessed to have the nectar flowing from your kavinilavu.
On any aspect or in any arena Rajeev jha enters with equal ease and enlightening us. We are fortunate to have his sane ideas.
All of us are victims some time or other. But to the extent possible adopt the keyword of safety in our thoughts and actions enlightening self and others. A worthy message to emulate.
Very nice of you for making us hear the music of mosquitoes. There is no doubt about music but the purana we can’t enjoy. The whole world is at its tiny foot out of fear. It has the audacity to question elephant whether the elephant stole her jacket! Good reminder.

Droeshout engraving for the First Folio

William Shakespeare-(23/4/1564-23/4/1616)

William Shakespeare the greatest playwright was baptized on 26th April 1564-probably born on 23rd April and died on the same April 23rd after 52 years in the year 1616.
Last year’s 400th death anniversary of the great bard of Avon-William Shakespeare and in commemoration of the occasion I made my post in ENVIUS THOUGHTS which I am reproducing the same hereunder for the benefit of recapitulation for those who have earlier viewed and for the first time viewers as new one :.
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)
One year has passed like a day and today is his 453rd birth day

This year making it as a Sunday story I am developing the above with some of Shakespeare’s brainy quotes and some of the quotes of the great intellectuals on this wizard.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool. William Shakespeare
The course of true love never did run smooth. William Shakespeare
We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures
When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.
Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind.
If we are marked to die, we are enough to do our country loss; and if to live, the fewer men, the greater share of honor.
Go to you bosom: Knock there, and ask your heart what it doth know. William Shakespeare Biography

Here are the quotes about William Shakespeare.
The Quotes about William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare is the most widely read of all Authors and the popularity of the works of Shakespeare, in English speaking countries, is second only to the Bible. He intrigues other authors. It is, therefore, not surprising that there are many quotes and quotations about William Shakespeare by his peers.

Quotes about William Shakespeare “an up-start Crow”
His fellow actors and dramatists also had a word or two to say about him – so we have included quotes from his peers! This probably started with the infamous quote about William Shakespeare by Robert Greene who criticised the Bard in his deathbed autobiographical Groatsworth of Wit (September 3, 1592 ) The quote is “for there is an up-start Crow, beautified with our feathers, that with his Tygers hart wrapt in a Players hyde, supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blanke verse as the best of you: and being an absolute Johannes fac totum, is in his owne conceit the onely Shake-scene in a countrey.” About three months after Green’s death his editor, Henry Chettle, made a public apology to Shake-speare!

What needs my Shakespeare for his honour’d bones,
The labour of an age in piled stones,
Or that his hallow’d relics should be hid
Under a star-y-pointing pyramid?

What need’st thou such weak witness of thy name?

And so sepulchered in such pomp dost lie,
That kings for such a tomb would wish to die.

And one wild Shakespeare, following Nature’s lights,
Is worth whole planets, filled with Stagyrites.

One of the greatest geniuses that ever existed,
Shakespeare, undoubtedly wanted taste.
