(harichandran) 01 The Prayer Songs.
This story is from the famous epic Mahabharat and has been retold by many authours in several languages. The Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi loved this story for its moral that speaks of faith in the truth, honesty and courage. Some 600 years ago, a famous Tamil Poet Veerakavirayar wrote in Tamil Harichandran Puranam in the Tamil Venba style. He was an Aasu Kavi (Spontaneous Poet) next to Kalamegam of ancient times. It is next to impossible to translate his work in English word by word. He has written more than 1000 verses running to more than 600 pages. I have, however, brought in some of his excellence in about 76 pages in my own simple style for the reading pleasure of the world poetry lovers. The readers are requested to send their comments to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, for which I will be grateful to them. The story goes starting with a prayer song to Gods in the heaven. Prayer to Lord Ganesh.

(100) (Meera) The Story In Brief
MEERA (1498-1547) The life story of Meera was shown in black and white Tamil film somewhere in the year 1976 or so. The famous actress M.S.Subbalakshmi acted as princess Meera and the actor Nagaiah as King Kumbha Rana of Chittor. Even today the songs of M.S.Subbalakshmi in Tamil are very popular. This story attracted me from my young days for the reason that Meera’s character was unique in that one can notice her sincere devotion to the Lord Krishna from her childhood days. Though a princess she was, she faced several hardships through out her life, yet her faith in Krishna was unquestionable. More than that, her captivating melodious songs in Vraja-bhasha, a dialect of Hindi spoken in and around Vrindavan, also sometimes mixed with Rajasthani, are still popular like folk songs even after 500 years.

Four young men, unemployed, Ran a concern, self-employed, Without much of publicity, In a remote corner of a city.

Ramayan Part 28 - Mareecha Turned Golden...
“Oh Ravan, please listen, Don’t bring your people ruin, Your action to covet Ram’s wife Will spell an end to your life.”
God Is The Real Owner
'My Master, the peace of mind
For me, where shall I find?
I am, day by day, restless
With my mind peace less.'
A king went all the way
To the forest one day
And before his kind master,
Knelt down with this prayer.
