ஆராரோ? ஆரீராராரோ? :unsure: :unsure:

'ஆ' வை மட்டும் 'யா' என்று மாற்றுங்கள்;
அடங்கிவிடும் உலகத் தத்துவம் இதில்!

யார் யாரோ (நிர்)பந்திக்கப்படுகிறார்கள்...
யார் யாரோ தீர்மானிக்கும் திருமணத்தில்!

யார் யாரோ தீடீர் (777) உறவாகி விடுகிறார்கள்.
யார் யாரோ வந்து பிறக்கின்றனர் குடும்பத்தில்.

யார் யாருக்கோ உழைக்கிறோம் ஓய்வில்லாமல்!
யார் யாருக்கோ உதவுகின்றோம் ஓய்வில்லாமல்!

யார் யாரோ வலிய வந்து உதவுகிறார்கள்.
யார் யாரோ நல்ல சிகிச்சை அளிக்கிறார்கள்.

யார் யாரையோ எல்லாம் இணைப்பது எது?
யார் யாரோ விதித்தப்படி நடப்பது எதனால்?

சிந்தித்தால் உலகமும், உறவுகளும் அயோமயம்!
சிந்திக்காவிட்டால் எண்ணங்கள் அடங்கிவிடும்!

"எல்லாம் அவன் செயல் என்றே கவலை இன்றி
இருப்பாய் நீ மடநெஞ்சமே!" என் தாத்தாவின் பாடல்!

" அமைதி நிலவ வேண்டும் எண்ணங்கள் என்னும்
அலைகள் வேண்டும் " என் தாத்தாவின் பாடல்.

அவர் அமைதியாக இருந்தார் - அதன் காரணம்
அவர் அறிந்திருந்தார் அமைதி அடையும் வழியை! 🙏

Apparently the song referred to in the above post
"எல்லாம் அவன் செயல் என்றே கவலை இன்றி
இருப்பாய் நீ மடநெஞ்சமே!" was not composed by my grandfather.
I am still confused that all along I had believed it to be his creation. :(

The pundit who had mastered 18 languages!

There was a pundit in a king's durbar. He could speak 18 different languages with equal ease and perfection. Nobody could guess his mother tongue - however much they tried to.

The court jester took it upon himself the task of solving this puzzle.

He poured ice cold water on the pundit when he was in deep slumber. The pundit jumped out his bed screaming and scolding in his mother tongue.

Moral:
One may act /pretend/ pose while wide awake. But in sleep the truth emerges!

Composer of that song is Shuddhananda Bharati.
Sri. Sanjay starts the pallavi as "ellām Sivan seyal".

A proverb a day to brighten the day.


305a. Bellende Hunde beißen nicht.
[ Ich weiß nicht, ob die bellenden Hunde diese Regel kennen].

305b. Barking dogs seldom bite.
[ I know not whether the barking dogs know this rule].

Barking dogs seldom bite!
Do all the dogs know this rule?

What if they know the rule very well and still want to disobey it -
just for the fun of springing a surprise on the unsuspecting victim?

footnotes:-
Bellende = Barking
Hunde = dogs
nicht = do not
beißen = bite.
Ich = I
weiß = know
nicht = not
ob = if
die = the
bellenden = barking

பொற்கிழியா? தக்ஷணையா?

பாடல்களைப் பரப்ப வேண்டுமென்றால் - நாமே
பாட வேண்டும் அவற்றை மேடையியல் அமர்ந்து.

பாடகர்கள் உதவலாம் ... உதவ மனம் இருந்தால்.
பாடகர்கள் கேட்பது கரும்பும், தின்னக் கூலியும்.

பொற்கிழி என்று எண்ணி அளித்தனர் பாடகருக்கு.
வெறும் தக்ஷிணை அது என எண்ணினார் பாடகர்!

"புரிகின்ற பாடலை விட மவுசு அதிகம் தான் ஒன்றும்
புரியாத மொழிப் பாடல்களுக்கு!" என்பது மெய்யோ?

"எங்களால் எல்லா மொழிகளையும் கற்க முடியாது!"
எனக்கு சம்மதம் இல்லாத சப்பைக் கட்டு என்பேன்.

"பாடலைக் கற்கும் போதே சரியான உச்சரிப்பையும்
பாடலுடன் சேர்த்துக் கொள்ள முடியாதா உங்களால்?"

பொற்கிழிகளும், தக்ஷிணைகளும் வாழட்டும்!
அற்புதமான புதுப் பாடல்களும் கூட வாழட்டும்!

A proverb a day to brighten the day.

306a. Schau nicht auf das begabte Pferd in seinem Maul.
306b. Don't look at the gifted horse in its mouth.

Gifts are of many different types;

Some are recycled - to save money or space or both;
Some get passed on - since the owner does not like it or need it;

Some are given to suit the position of the giver;
Some others are given to suit the position of the receiver.

A gift is gift - whatever may be the background story.
One must honor the gift - just as one must give a honorable gift.

footnotes:-
Nicht = Do not
schau = see / look
auf = at
das = the
begabte = gifted
Pferd = horse
in = in
seinem = his
Maul= mouth.

Oil and Water.

These two do not mix well nor go well together anywhere and at any time. Oil has a tendency to keep on spreading farther and farther, in any surface. Small wonder human mind is often compared to oil - since it spreads thought - waves endlessly in every direction.

If oil catches fire, one must nit use water to put it out. That will make the fire burn higher with fearsome crackling sounds and make the flame jump put of the pan and break into many smaller flames.

Oil and water do not go well in the bathroom - more so when the new ultra fancy and
easy-to -clean tiles are used in the bathroom. They are easy not just to clean but also to slip and suffer a severe fall followed by an Unfall (aka accident).

The problems of the most of the super senior start with a fall and often become very serious and at times even fatal. Falls are treacherous in elders since their bone mass, bone strength and the fat and muscle protection to the bones have got reduced to the minimum.

The older people do not have enough strength to get back on their feet. The other older people around them are themselves standing on shaky legs - unable to help the victim.

It is wisdom to prevent the fall by any means - than become bedridden with a broken hip or spine or ribs! :(

A proverb a day to brighten the day

307a. Blut ist dicker als Wasser.
307b. Blood is thicker than water.

Blood USED to be thicker than water in the past.
I am not so sure of it anymore!
Am I growing wiser as my hair grows whiter?

In the group game called "Passing the parcel" every person would handle the parcel as if it were a hot potato! Now human being are handled in pretty much the same way.

As long as you remain a good potato you will be left alone. If you become a rotten potato with some health issues, your fate will be decided by the others.

footnotes:
Blut = Blood
ist = is
dicker = thicker
als = than
Wasser = water.

Human brain has infinite capacity and memory.
I wonder what % of it being put to use by most of us! :(

Here are the links to two very special programs.

The kAliya (Kum. Mahima) in the kAliya nardhanam seems to be made out of rubber.
Her flexibility is amazing and mind blowing. Krishna steals the show with agility!

The second id a Melodious Medley by two very versatile sisters. We all know about One-man- army and One-man-zoo but this is two-women-show exhibiting 2 + 3 skills!

A school of thoughts is a collection or group of people who share common characteristics of opinion or outlook of a philosophy, discipline, belief, social movement, cultural movement and art movement.

Schools are often classified into “new” and “old” schools. However, it is rarely the case that there are only two schools in any given field.

Schools are often named after their founders. They are often also named after their places of origin.We will look into some of the popular schools of thought and what they say briefly, here in this thread.

When the Pathi and Sathi are both 'putty' strange things start happening.

If the Pathi ( the husband) is putty ( white clay) which can be made
into anything by the crafty hands of his scheming wife (Sati).

If Sathi ( the wife ) is a putty ( a dog) with no scruples as to The Right and The Wrong.

Paired together they can cause havoc in the world - if they are in power.
Paired together they can stage endless dramas and entertain the world.

"Mind your business!"

This sounds very curt and hurts. So learn the more polished ways of pushing the same idea smoothly and without causing additional friction. :)

1. " Please let it go!"

2. " Please keep out of this!"

3. " I do not want to discuss about it"

4. "I do not want to hear about it"

5. "I know what I am doing!"

6. "I am not a kid to be spoon fed!"

If you can thing of more such sentences please add them to this list!
