One brought her a big and ripe watermelon. She married him and they lived happily together thereafter. Not only that. On every wedding anniversary ,they together garlanded a ripe watermelon and ensured that each man and woman in the kingdom got a watermelon. That kept the people healthy, wealthy and wise. 3) Sunday Entertainment Zee5 2022 https://youtu.be/QwcCXaiohD8 (Link Selection : M G Warrier) B Books Wake Robin https://www.amazon.in/dp/B06XDNTLJL/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_1GATRNSPC4P1Y2CE59DX In the early spring, the blooming of the wildflower trillium — also known as "wake-robin" — heralds the return of migrating birds. In Wake-Robin: A Collection of Essays About the Birds, John Burroughs offers absorbing reading for birdwatchers, nature lovers, and anyone interested in ecology and conservation. This 1871 collection of essays by the distinguished naturalist showcases his special gift for combining scientific accuracy with a grand poetic expression. These essays particularly focus on birds of the Adirondacks and the Washington, D.C. region. "What I offer, in fact, is a careful and conscientious record of actual observations and experiences, and is true as it stands written, every word of it. But what has interested me most in ornithology is the pursuit, the chase, the discovery," he notes, adding that "I have tried to present a live bird, a bird in the woods or the fields, with the atmosphere and associations of the place, and not merely a stuffed and labeled specimen." Although scrupulously factual, Burroughs' investigations are less those of a scientist and more in the nature of an experienced and articulate observer who delights in sharing the timeless joys of birdwatching and the outdoors. C Spirituality/Faith 1) Sunday Collage : V T Panchapagesan Chennai SUNDAY COLLAGE GOD always repays giving to us in some form or the other. 0It may not be in Money or Goods. More often He repays in HAPPINESS, HEALTH & LOVE. But man wants to earn, earn till the end. What does he gain by this? Life is not a CONTEST, BUT A CHANCE TO DO THE BEST WE CAN WITH WHAT WE HAVE. Read below as it is an eye opener for us all : 🌹John D Rockefeller was once the richest man in the world. The first billionaire in the world. By age 25, he controlled one of the largest oil refineries in the US. By age 31, he had become the world's largest oil refiner. By age 38, he commanded 90% of the oil refined in the US By 50, he was the richest man in the country. As a young man, every decision, attitude, and relationship was tailored to create his personal power and wealth. 🌹But at the age of 53, he became ill. His entire body became racked with pain and he lost all of his hair. In complete agony, the world's only billionaire could buy anything he wanted, but he could only digest soup and crackers. An associate wrote : "He could not sleep, would not smile and nothing in life meant anything to him. His personal, highly skilled physicians predicted he would die within a year. That year passed agonizingly slowly. 🌹As he approached death he awoke one morning with the vague realisation of not being able to take any of his wealth with him into the next world. The man who could control the business world suddenly realized he was not in control of his own life. He was left with a choice. 🌹He called his attorneys, accountants, and managers and announced that he wanted to channel his Assets to Hospitals, Research and Charity work. John D Rockfeller established his Foundation. This new direction eventually led to the discovery of penicillin, cures for malaria, tuberculosis and diphtheria." 🌹But perhaps the most amazing part of Rockefeller's story is that the moment he began to give back a portion of all that he had earned, his body's chemistry was altered so significantly that he got better. It looked as if he would die at 53 but he lived to be 98. Rockefeller learned gratitude and gave back the vast majority of his wealth. Doing so made him whole. It is one thing to be healed. It is another to be made whole. 🌹Before his death, he wrote this in his diary :“The Supreme Energy taught me, that everything belongs to him, and I am only a channel to comply his wishes. My life has been one long, happy holiday _Full of work and full of play I dropped the worry on the way and God was good to me every day.” A nice message for all of us!🙏 V T Panchapagesan More about Rockefeller Foundation : https://www.rockefellerfoundation.org/about-us/our-history/ 2) Dr Charan Singh https://twitter.com/CharanSingh60/status/1525222039694757888?s=20&t=LKV2SYurZ-4OIptKK2P3Cw Unity in Diversity - 251 ततु बिचारु यहै मथुरा जग तारन कउ अवतारु बनायउ जप्यउ जिन्ह अरजुन देव गुरू फिरि संकट जोनि गरभ न आयउ Distilled Truth: to save world, God incarnates One who meditates on Guru, does not face the distress of coming again in womb Bard Mathura, 1409, SGGS D Collage in Classroom Birdwatching : Woodpeckers https://www.britannica.com/animal/woodpecker Most woodpeckers spend their entire lives in trees, spiralling up the trunks in search of insects; only the few ground-feeding forms are capable of perching on horizontal branches, as passerine birds do. Most woodpeckers eat insects, but some (especially Melanerpes species) feed on fruits and berries, and sapsuckers regularly feed on sap from certain trees in some seasons. In spring the loud calls of woodpeckers, often augmented by drumming on hollow wood or occasionally on metal, are the sounds of males holding territories; at other seasons woodpeckers are usually silent. Most are not social, tending rather to be solitary or to travel in pairs. E Media Response May 14, 2022 Holistic approach to tourism This refers to the article "Making agri-tourism a sustainable business" (The Hindu Business Line, May 14). The issues specific to agri-tourism are all relevant and need pointed attention from the policy makers. But, in the Indian context, a holistic approach to tourism industry is long overdue. With appropriate variations depending on geographic and weather-related factors tourism packages may have to integrate Festival Tourism, Medical Tourism, Heritage Tourism and Entertainment Tourism. Viewed from a different angle, within India, we have several attractions that make tourists to visit Switzerland, Dubai, Singapore and China, in varying measures. We are yet to assess the tourism potential across our long beaches, Ayurvedic Treatment and Yoga Training Facilities, several natural and heritage tourist attractions from a realistic economic perspective.
