    Some people use the bathroom and the washbasin in such a way that no one will be able to use them after they use - without cringing in disgust.

    They flood the floor unnecessarily. The make entire sink and its outside dripping wet.

    Small wonder we need reminders like

    "Keep the bathroom floor dry and clean"

    "Wipe the washbasin and leave it clean for the next person!"

    In India we find this notice above the washbasin in some restaurants.

    "Ingu thalai seevaatheergaL!"

    Untold message conveyed here is
    "Ingu neengal thalai seevinaal, naangal ungal thalaiyai seevi viduvom!"

    No reminder will help UNLESS all the people develop a civic sense!

    Sleep, riches and health to be truly enjoyed,
    must be interrupted occasionally!
    (Can we add dinner / lunch also to this list???)

    Men make houses.
    Women make homes.
    (Together they make babies to live in the home)

    No one can preach better than an ant...
    and yet it SAYS nothing!
    (Do you till have a doubt about how actions speak louder than words?)

    Add to the golden rules this iron rule:
    Don't do to others something that
    they won't care to do for themselves.
    (anonymous means he / she can be anyone of us!)

    Humanity is an ocean.
    If a few drops become dirty,
    the ocean does not become dirty.
    Mahatma Gandhi.

    I thank the readers for the spike in the traffic of all my threads - especially this one (~3200) and "A Poem a day..." thread in Literature section (~2300) yesterday.

    Only this kind of indirect encouragement keeps me striving on and on. All the friends of the forum, kith and kin have stopped communicating!

    Periya purANam is coming up very well.

    I have completed the poems on 60 out of 63 nAyamArgaL.
    The only three remaining are the Supreme trio Appar, Sundarar and Sambandhar.

    All the poems written (and to be written ) are yet to be typed and translated into English, before I will be able to post them in my blogs and this forum.

    Wish me Godspeed that I will be blessed to complete this epic venture at the earliest by the grace of Siva - the real hero of the Periya purANam!

    P.S

    I visited a Devi temple during my stay in Chennai with my sister. We had missed the Sannadhi of Siva by oversight.

    The priest had a sense of humor and called out to us,
    "Inge vanthuttu herovaip paakkaamal pOrELE!"

    He travels fastest who travels alone.

    He travels fastest who remains unattached.

    The real reason for this Godspeed...???

    The art of teaching is nothing but
    the art of assisting discovery.

    Laugh a little more at your own troubles
    and a little less a your neighbor's.
    Mark Twain.

    Some of the world's best quotations are by anonymous persons- not less great, but less well known, as their names do not ring a bell!


    A friend told me one day,
    "All the nice quotations are by Mr. Anon!
    Wonder who was that great guy!"


    The essence of knowledge is having it to apply it;
    not having it to confess your ignorance.(Confucius)



    Education is

    an ornament in Prosperity
    and a refuge in adversity.
    Aristotle.

    Truth does not hurt, unless it is ought to.

    There is so much of difference
    between the Popular beliefs of life
    and the unpopular facts of life.

    Anger is never without a reason-
    but seldom with a good one!


    Half the miseries and mistakes
    we commit in our lives arise from
    feeling where we ought to think,
    and thinking where we ought to feel.

    He who considers too much
    will perform too little.


    When little men cast long shadows
    know that the Sun is setting.


    The great goal in life is not
    mere knowledge but action.
