Everybody should read this Slogam.
" GAJA THURAGA SAHASRAM, KODI DAANAM,
KANAKA RAJITHA PAATHRAM MEGANEE SAGARANTHAM,
UBHAYA VISUDHA KODI KANYA PRADAANAM,
NAHI NAHI BAHU DAANAM, ANNADAANAM SAMANAHA."
It is very kind of you to provide the meaning. Thank you. As I suspected, this slokam is very shallow, since not mentioning who should get the 'annadhanam'. one who can earn their own keep should not be given free food on regular basis.
If you provide a fish to someone, you ward off his/her hunger for that day.
If you teach the same person the art of catching the fish, then you ward off his/her hunger for many years to come.
Annadanam is not all that great as claimed by the slokam.
தானத்தில் சிறந்த தானம், சமாதானம் ; அதை அடைய உதவும் தானம், நிதானம்.
(The most desirable dhaanam is peace; patience is the dhaanam that helps to achieve peace).
I have seen your comments about the Slokam which was given by me about "Danam". This slokam was taken from my Grandfather by my Father, so neither my Father or myself could not find out the Sanskrit meaning that time except the conclusion of the slokam about Annadanam. Later only I came to know the exact meaning of this. Since I have not taken this as a serious issue, but after seeing your reply only I could realise your feelings. By that time one of our Friends who gave us the exact meaning of this slokam by line by line.
I too learned the other meaning. I did not heard that before uncle. With my M.Phil tamil knowledge I just analysed and said the interpretation. Thats all. Finally I found your pettai also. AUSSIE... Angadan adi adinnu adikaralame???. Hahahah
Dear Raghy uncle
My question is very simple and just to ask about the present situation. thats all. For everyone, there own native provides much freedom which you cannot expect in the other nations. Its simple like when we are in our own house and living in other's house amidst of them. Thats all. Am not blaming anyone for this. I did not expect such an outburst from you. For that simple sake, I think there is no need to compare the situation in India. Since you are there in your pettai, you should not underestimate the other pettai, which also your home pettai na... Even its also having some small issues, but not daily (and that too not so particular against one group of people).
