We have close relatives nearing 100, and a few are in 103,104. But the pity is their sons and daughters have not taken after their parents in the matter of longevity. Along with physical ailments these seniors have to see the parting of their children with heavy heart. Longevity is a curse to some of them. 2) Jyothilakshmi Anil Kumar Excellent parable by Khalil Gibran and painting by Jean Leon Gerome B 20th Century Malayalam Literature https://omnilogos.com/twentieth-century-malayalam-literature/ C Tamil Drama https://www.thehindu.com/features/friday-review/theatre/its-a-different-world/article4653754.ece/amp/ Advance Bail : This article is 9 years old 🙏-Warrier The Hindu's three-day Tamil drama fest reiterated people's faith and love for theatre Last weekend, the stage was set for barrels of fun and laughter when the stalwarts of Tamil theatre S.Ve.Shekar and Y.Gee.Mahendra descended on the city to enthral the audience with their in-house productions. Close on the heels at The Hindu’s Kodai Nadaga Vizha was also YG’s daughter Madhuvanthi Arun, who too in her inimitable style stole the audience appreciation. Bonus Endless search : https://www.downtoearth.org.in/tag/extinct D Collage Essay : Mind, Heart and Soul Good health lies in peace to the mind, heart and soul. The quote is small and crisp but instigated me to introspect more. Many wonder whether there is a difference between the heart and soul. It is normally referred to as 'heart and soul'. No one refers as hearty soul or soully heart. So there appears to be two entities. Heart is the more complex of the two because it has an existence both at a physical and metaphysical level. Physical heart is a strong organ of muscles and nerves and is built to last at least a hundred years functioning ceaselessly pumping the blood even to the remotest corners of the body without asking for relaxation or LFC at Ooty or Mount Abu . The other invisible metaphysical heart is even more intriguing. Its absence is readily noticed, but not the presence. The most frequently heard comment about a missing heart is‘Have a heart' that we utter when we perceive a person as very unreasonable. This gives us a glimpse into the function of the metaphysical heart. The meanings of certain situations can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart. This reveals that this invisible heart is more important for a human than the rhythmically beating physical heart. If the invisible or the metaphysical heart is what we judge a man by, then what does the soul do? Whenever we see an ebullient person adding a lot of lustre to a party, we call him the heart and soul of the party. If we want to highlight the importance of something in the scheme of things, we call it‘the heart and soul' of the matter. Thus it would appear as though the soul always works in tandem with the metaphysical heart in livening up the proceedings. But is that all that the soul does? I mean keeping company with a good heart? Soul is usually perceived as something that a person has but leaves him once he ceases to exist physically. It is also known for moving from person to person to keep itself alive. Sounds a bit opportunistic but what is it doing in a live person? Why do we say” in my heart of heart?” We say heart of the matter and not soul of the matter. He put his heart and soul on the job which conveys that soul is a little more serious than the heart. When someone dies we say, "May his soul rest in peace" or "I pray for his soul” He has to do soul searching is another common expression which lends a little more respectability to the soul.. I wonder whether we can compare 'SOUL' to MOOLAVAR heart to 'UTSAVAR" of the temple. Moolavar is static and all-pervading. People have to seek and reach out to the Moolavar but the Utsavar goes round reaching out to everyone. Even if you don't want to go looking for the Moolavar (soul), the Utsavar reaches out to all reminding everyone that He represents only the Moolavar, the two sides of the same coin. On further analysis it is proper to assume that Mind, Metaphysical heart and soul are like a triangle. If we remove the threads one after another, the mind disappears and achieve thoughtless state. By peace to the mind we mean we are talking about contraction i.e. removing desires, reducing bad thoughts and retaining only noble thoughts. As far as Metaphysical heart is concerned it is a faculty that enables noble thoughts transform into Universal Love for all fellow beings. It takes noble thoughts from the mind and converts into love and compassion to be implemented into actions later. Soul is a witness to the activities of both the mind and the Metaphysical Heart. It does not interfere with either one of them. But it has a friend in the form of intellect or Free Will and allow Mind and Metaphysical Heart to consult the intellect as and when needed. Philosophically speaking, SOUL is a higher consciousness that remains independent of the actions of the mind and Metaphysical Heart but allows both of them to add positive or negative Karma to the Soul. When Mind and Heart work together in the same direction, the Soul gets energized and keeps reducing its encryption. When it becomes totally encryption free, it merges with the formless Universal Absolute. Soul's only role in human life is to be a witness to the actions of the Mind and Metaphysical Heart until a person exists. When he or she dies, it moves with its encryption to another body hoping that the new Body Mind Heart complex would make effort to remove its encryption. We have to conclude that good thoughts, words and deeds give peace to the mind and heart and metaphysical heart paving a way for good health. There is no question of the 'soul' becoming peaceful as it is considered to be ever pure and peaceful. Vathsala Jayaraman E Blogs & Links 1) Nambudiris of Kerala https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/nambudiris-of-kerala-9269/ Excerpts : "Since it came into being when my paternal and maternal grandfathers (they were half-brothers born to my great grandfather Govindan Nambudiri) were children, nothing much is known about the occupants of the Illam when it was constructed. One appropriate guess is, at the time of establishing the new Illam (present structure) there were twenty to thirty occupants and the family was fairly rich and literate by the prevailing standards. The guess about the number of members in the family is based on the fact that in the 1950s when my father became the seniormost male member of the family, he had 28 “shraddhas” (annual ritual to remember departed souls) to be performed in a year." 2) 2020 New Year Resolutions https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/2020-new-year-resolutions-9331/ Excerpts : I’m 75 and for the first time I’m focusing on drafting a NYR for myself which I’m interested in sharing with you through this blog times permitting. If this blog post gets rejected, my NYR 2020 will include a clause which will make it essential for me to improve my style of writing. If this gets published, I invite you to give me some feedback which can be helpful in drafting my NYR. My purpose of having a NYR is to make my efforts more focused for social good. To help you formulate your suggestions, I can give you some tips: a) I retired from service during the last decade after serving different organizations for four decades. b) My English is as good as what you are reading now. c) I believe improvement in governance is possible by citizens’ participation. d) I believe in positive thinking. If something negative comes in my way, I wait for the next positive development which is in the pipeline. e) I believe, there’s no dead end on my road, till I’m dead. f) About my needs, I go by Santh Rahim’s prayer — Sai Itnaa Deejiye Ja Me Kudumb Samay (Rahim requests Sai to give enough to take care of his family’s needs) Rahiman Bhookhaa Naa Rahoom (Rahim should not remain hungry) Saadhu Na Bhookhaa Jay (Rahim’s guests should not return hungry) g) As a senior citizen, I’m interested in getting every elderly person (say those who are 70 plus) being a member of a neighbourhood group of 5 to 10 members, who meet everyday. They should also have at least one doctor with whom a person can directly interact in case of an emergency.
