Warrier's Collage 28022021: Deva Bhasha

Welcome to Warrier's Daily COLLAGE Sunday February 28, 2021 (How Bhagavad-Gita influenced me: E Sreedharan) https://youtu.be/1HqEn-7nvAM (Link Selection: M G Warrier) Good Morning We get up early daily looking at the rising Sun. It not only inspires us but also motivates us, to do things which we find difficult, to face problems.. SUN is a symbol of Service-oriented Universal Navigator... Its Diameter is 8,64 000 miles ......which is astonishing to learn.. Numerically if we add this it becomes 18. 1, 8 adding it comes 9...... One is symbolic to Supreme divine force and 8 is combination of five elements with Structure, Metabolism and Movement combination... With Star, Planet, and Satellite put together..... We are a tiny spark, an iota in atom for the sake of comparison. The Sun is so hot that it could melt in ONE SECOND a column of ice 21/2 miles square and stretching the 93 million miles from the earth to the sun......Amazing... Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans and the Great Lakes could be emptied into it but the Sun would not even SPATTER. From every square yard of the Sun’s vast surface there streams continuously over one 100,1000 H.P. Enough to lift 250 Ten-ton tanks to the top of a 40 storey building in one minute. If we had to pay some power company for the light received by the Earth daily from the Sun, the bill would make the national debt look like carfare... It could supply two billion more earths like our own........ Unthinkable to see and hear all these ...It does not end with this. This is only one Sun in our Solar system but there are Galaxy of Stars........ Tiny men like us with intelligence arrogance is challenging it .............with his egocentric desires...... Let us invoke seeking His Divine Grace by our daily prayer when we see the Sun rising early morning for our all round happiness......with positive outlook.. As 9 is a number that which The Atman or The Soul leaves in anyone... Of the nine holes in the body....merges with it unnoticed....... 🙏🙏🙏 V. T. Panchapagesan Chennai Nice Day M G Warrier M 134 A Interaction 1) E Madhavan Trissur Translation of Vishnunarayanan Namboodiri's poem (one translation by me was included in Collage yesterday) by Atmaraman* HAVE SEEN THE TRIUMPHANT MARCH OF WHITE VISHNUNARAYANAN NAMBUDIRI I have seen the triumphant march of white- Jasmine in bloom, dewdrop on a pebble, Day with a drooping April sun; The virgin's smile, an aged star in the sky Moving with unerring steps. I have seen the triumphant march of white- Sandal mark on forehead, The sandy shore where waves practise writing, The half- open floral spray of the palm tree, A slice of moon on suckling tender lips. I have seen the triumphant march of white- Caressing hand on a feverish body, The faltering tongue bidding adieu, And as the dusk falls, The vague realisation of an unknown act of kindness seeping in unconsciously, The felicity that sets in like glowing ember As the flames of fiery suspicion die down. I have seen the triumphant march of white. ( Translated by Bhaskaramenon Krishnakumar*) (Collage adds: The Poet's complete works upto 2012 published under the title "VAISHNAVAM": https://www.indulekha.com/vaishnavam-poems-vishnu-narayanan-namboodiri (Collection of poems penned by Vishnu Narayanan Namboodiri. Vaishnavam has all his poems published upto 2012 September. It has poems from all his collections including Swathantryathekkurichu Oru Geetham, Pranayageethangal, Bhumigeethangal, India Enna Vikaram, Mukhamevide?, Athirthiyilekku Oru Yathra, Aranyakam, Ujjayiniyile Rappakalukal, Abhivadyam, Sreevalli, Utharayanam, Charulatha etc. This edition also has studies on Vishnu Narayanan Namboodiri's poems by Dr M Leelavathi, Sugathakumari, K P Sankaran and Dr N Mukundan.) 2) S K Gupta Panchkula 'Leisure' segment in today's Collage made interesting reading. However, the best one was "Caution- This truck is full of Promises of Politicians!!" Truly speaking, my own impression was that making the whole lot of false promises was the sole prerogative of the Indian Politicians, who are blessed with such an acumenship. Now it transpires that this happens to be a world wide phenomenon. Long live our political masters as they are adept in raising some hopes (though falsified) even in the midst of various odds. It seems that the three 'Ps' 'Politicians, Promises and People' are made for each other." (Collage View: World over, we have not migrated to democratic system of government visualised by Abraham Lincoln: "Government of the people, By the people, For the People". Kings and Emperors have acquired new wardrobes and dressed up as the modern "Rich and the Powerful" who own and operate Governance across the world. Then, what is my role in the scheme of things? https://www.speakingtree.in/allslides/uddharedaatmanaatmaanam-naatmaanamavasaadayet-aatmaiva-hyaatmano-bandhuraatmaiva-ripuraatmanaha The answer is in the Bhagavad Gita stanza accessible with this link-Warrier 🙏) 3) Badrinarayanan Babusenan Sir's piece on Hemineglect can not simply be neglected. It looks providential that the right person landed at the right place and at the right time to cure the ailing left side of the patient. Being a true story, one is eager to know whether the invitation to visit the upcoming Guruvayurappan temple was honoured. ... Badri B Lead Story By Vathsala Jayaraman Sanskrit, Devabhasha There are ever so many mind blowing facts about Sanskrit. It has the highest number of vocabularies than any other language of the world. It can convey a sentence in minimum number of words. America has a University dedicated to Sanskrit. Nasa too has a special Sanskrit department. Forbes has declared in 1987 that Sanskrit the best computer friendly language. It is an official language of the state of Uttarakhand. Many advanced informations can be had from upanishads, shruthis and smruthis. It is learnt that Sanskrit improves brain functioning. The phonetics of this language has roots in various energy points of the body and reading, speaking or reciting Sanskrit stimulates these points and raises energy levels. When I started wearing a removable denture 20 years back, the dentist advised me to recite Lalitha sahasra naamam and Soundarya lahari giving emphasis to pronunciation.The lower denture which was adamant to jump out calmed down within a week. It had the power to stimulate the tongue and enabled it to accept the denture as a sibling. Sanskrit is not just a language but is the primordial conduit between human thought and soul; physics and meta physics;subtle and gross; created and the creator. It is a scholarly language of Hinduism,Buddhism ( long with Pali) and jainism ( along with Prakrit) Certain villages in Karnataka has Sanskrit as the spoken language. Notwithstanding the above facts it is million dollar question wiether it will survive the political struggle. Deva Bhasha For long Sanskrit has been elevated to the level of Deva Bhasha or divine language with heaps of statistics to justify the same. But except the ancient Bhakthi literature and astronomical works, the pride of sanskrit, for the past 500 years nothing has been done concrete either to popularise and introduce it in common schools. It is an absurd attitude, encouraged by Tamil nationalists, to hold that any attention paid to any language other than Tamil is somehow a hatred of Tamil. I am yet to notice any evidence of any significant "despising" of Tamil occurring in India. Sanskrit has had an influence over the literary and technical cultures of nearly every region of India — it would not be surprising if Indians "celebrated" it. But I doubt that premise too. Beyond some empty words of praise (which is just another way of ignoring it — as you note, few people actually speak it, or read anything written in it), I don't notice any widespread "celebration" of Sanskrit in India. A healthy culture must be aware of its history, and at least some people must continue to engage with its classical works. English culture would be poorer if no one read Shakespeare or Milton; French culture would be poorer if no French person read Rabelais or Voltaire; and Indian culture in general is poorer when no one "celebrates" the classical works in Sanskrit (and in Pali, Prakrit, Tamil, Bengali, Hindi, etc). If at all any significant number of people were really "celebrating" Sanskrit —reading Kālidāsa or Patañjali or Āryabhaṭa, say — it would be a good thing. But that doesn't seem to be happening much anyway. There is simply no reason to love one language and hate the other for anyone. People may show attachment and give preference to their mother tongue,which is quite natural, because they have grown and continue to grow under the shadow of their own language. They read it, write in it, see it all around, the society around them functions using this language. Hence, they are strongly inclined to their mother tongue. However, this still doesn't necessarily lead them into hating the other languages. Whether the word 'kaappiyam' originated from the Sanskrit word 'Kavyam' or the word 'sangam' originated from the sanskrit word 'Sangaha' -or vice versa leads only to unhealthy debates and discussions. It is an undeniable fact that there is a 'fall' of Sanskrit inspite of 'perfection, divinity and greatness. Sanskrit definitely helped to spread 'knowledge' But it is culture and 'prestige' that can withstand shocks, upheavels and political struggles.Evidently that has happened to Sanskit inspite of our tall claims that it is the most suited language for Computer programming. Recently we learn that there are more schools and Universities in Germany that offer advanced courses in Sanskrit. Why can't it happen in India? Historically, Sanskrit was the language for the upper castes, which required formal education which was restricted to the upper castes. So, demographically, there was limited scope for it overshadowing colloquial languages. Over time, it became the language of literature rather than of conversation. It is the language of the slokas and hymns, which are still used as it is. Sanskrit, is for Hindus like how Arabic is for Islam, Pali is for Buddhists. Tamil, has its own reputation, as it was a basis for the evolution of other southern languages. Also many puranas and scriptures had their original inscriptions in Tamil. It is the greatness of the Tamil Kings that still made their language and history associated secured without losing them. This is also because the Tamil land had never been to foreign invasion. But all this is history. And many important things were lost in history. So appreciating the importance of Sanskrit as a very basic language of Hinduism holds its own uniqueness while respecting the sentiments of Tamil for their historical legacy is also good. In 1959 I participated in an oratorical contest in Sanskrit. There were only 4 participants, two boys from National College, Tiruchy and Vivekananda College, Madras, two girls from SRC ( Tiruchy) and from Stella Maris Madras. The preparation was extremely difficult though the topic related to Kalidasa.Not to talk about audience.We had to repeat the matter in English. In those days there was no objection as Hindi Agitation. Even then response was very poor. But today it is struggle for existence with strong opposition from many corners, especially in Tamilnadu. In the present situation it is a great question whether Sanskrit will revive its past glory, unless extra ordinary special efforts are taken in this regard.

I have known you since long.Your patients love you. So do I, for your care and sensitivity perhaps learnt from your father. For your information, another Asha (my wife) is undergoing treatment for lung cancer. She is now 81. The thought, that she can still contribute to do something for others, keeps her in good spirits. The other day, she was replying to a friend about her health and she said "I am in good spirits without vodka." As I am in a lighter mood at this moment, let me tell you a joke: An elderly woman past 80 looked very happy. Someone asked her "How come you are so cheerful all the time." With tongue in her cheek, the good old lady replied, "It's simple. There is hardly any competition." Affectionately, Dr.Anand Subject: Re: Don’t say you are OLD Thanks Mathura, I am currently very scared of my age and do not look forward to celebrate my birthday. I feel I have done with 2/3rds of my life and have fear of death! I get panic attacks too! Regards Asha Benakappa When necessary, mention your age with pride. You can be creative and productive at any age. Do not unnecessarily attempt to hide your age. Age is just a number Dr NB Mathur, MD, FNNF Dean ( Academics ) CNBC,Geeta Colony, Delhi Former Director Professor and Head, Department Of Neonatology, Maulana Azad Medical College & Professor & Head, Faculty Of Medical Sciences, University Of Delhi New Delhi Past President, National Neonatology Forum An extensive study in the U.S.A found that the most productive age in human life is between 60-70 years of age. The 2nd most productive stage of the human being is from 70 to 80 years of age. The 3rd most productive stage is from 50 to 60 years of age. The average age of NOBEL PRIZE winners is 62 years. The average age of the presidents of prominent companies in the world is 63 years. The average age of the pastors of the 100 largest churches in the U.S.A. is 71. The average age of the Popes is 76 years. This tells us in a way that it has been determined, that the best years of your life are between 60 and 80 years. A study published in NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE found that at age 60, you reach the TOP of your potential and this continues into your 80s. Therefore, if you are between 60 -70 or 70-80 you are in the BEST and 2nd level of your life.
