Happy Tamil New Year,2013


Another sacred day has come at last,
A day of rituals keeping with the past;
Another day to celebrate this year,
With kith and kin and friends away, and near.

In Tamil Nadu, Life has not been good
Because of drought and scarcity of food;
The current-cuts destroy many a home,
But doles by government are so much welcome!

The world is caught in recession again;
There has been often failure of good rain;
The dams are dry and fields are parched, crop-less;
The year that was was gloomy and hopeless!

But things can’t stay for long this way, we know;
Our prayers will invoke God’s kindness more;
The state of Tamils will improve with time,
As better changes come upon the clime.

May clouds pour down the rain, our farmers need;
May prosperity come to soil and seed;
May smiles and laughter fill all house-holds soon;
May drought and money-crunch become a boon!

May Tamils globally be happier still;
May godliness and love in their hearts fill;
May flora, fauna clothe the land again;
May God bestow the much-needed good rain!

A Happy Tamil New Year wish to all;
Unity ushers peace – the clarion call;
Let’s do away with every kind of wall;
We must get up and walk although we fall!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
