On the 5th of this month full moon adorns the sky. The same day is celebrated as a remembrance day of Dr. Ambedkar. Ambedkar was a great statesman and he authored constitution of India. The most luminous legal person of India, he was the champion of the downtrodden. Let us pay respect to his memories.
On 8th the holy Mother's conception of Lord Jesus Christ is celebrated. She was found by the heavenly father as suitable recipient of the heavenly blessing in the form of Christ.
Our first Indian Governor General Shri Rajaji's birthday is celebrated on 9th. Rajaji's clear voice echoed on the walls of Madras Legislative assembly. He could talk precively and to the point. His diction was simple and yet beautiful. Rajaji as a writer authored commentaries on Mahabharata in Kalki. A Great penman that he was his statements stood the test of times.
The 18th happens to be Sarva Ekathasi.
On 19th Pirathosam and on 21 Sarva Amavasai and also Hanuman Jayanthi come. Hanuman is described by Kambar that the gift of speech was possessed by Hanuman. Hanuman is said to be incarnation of the trinity Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva. I had the unique blessings of Lord Hanuman, who appeared in my dream and commanded me to compose poems in musical mode. That was a secret mystic experience and yet I want to share with His devotes. The musical compact disc released by M/S Sangeetha was sung by Ms Janaki, and directed by L. Krishnan. The song describing Hanuman's rendezvous with Ravana the ten headed Emperor of Srilanka is worth a million every line.
The great Mathematical Genius Ramanujam was born on 22nd. Ramanujam's many equations still remain unresolved.
Let us celebrated Farmers Day on 23rd. Let worthy government Central and state do a lot of imputs to the farming industry.
Quarrying of sand on riverbeds causes untold and unimaginable consequence affecting flora and fauna. This is the right time the government declares all quarries to come under the central subjects. Quarrying should be allowed under the supervision of people's representatives and local bodies. Otherwise Tamil Nadu will become a desert. Already a desert advancing syndrome was predicted by me when I was district Collector in Chengalpattu 1986 to 1988.
MGR and Periyar's are remembered on 24th. The casteism would have done great damage to the societal fabric but for the advent of Periyar. Periyar has left a great legacy. He has staunch followers like Veeramani, Anoor Jegadeesan etc who are prepared to do anything to spread Periyar's ideals.
MGR was the finest chief Minister who had always people's welfare in his mind. I was fortunate to serve as The District Collector Of Chengalpattu District having the Chief Minister's residence in my jurisdiction. His interference in administration was nil. He was always wedded to the Rule of Law. Whenever a new scheme or project was brought to his notice for approval, the very first question he asks, "What will be the benefit to the people at large?. Will there be rain?" I had convinced the fall of rain when good projects are launched.
Dr M.G.R had strong faith in just Rule and if the rule is just rain shall never fail. Very much he had royal blood in his veins.
A new boon we ask from the Prime Minister
Even the Health and medical services sector is now infected with a hybrid Virus of Money Mongering at any cost. Lo! The health provider is afflicted with the neo virus. Only The Prime Minister can administer a massive dose of quick action against such detestable viruses by instituting CBI enquiries and follow up acutely. There are hundreds of cases when people visit hospitals, they go for a check up but they are frightened with an onset of severe infection and their money fleeced and discharged as they were admitted.
Most N.R.I Companies after getting monopoly for certain life saving drugs, delay importing them ever since signed and got the Monopoly as long back as 2011. This is most dangerous. We request the Hon'ble Prime minister to intervene otherwise the cost of these drugs will sky rocket beyond the reach of common man.
Politicians seem to rule the roost. Most of the government officials become suppliant to their political bosses' selfish ends to avoid transfer. These trends should be stopped. The very fences graze the crop! What a tragedy!
In some of the departments under the state list like sanitation, health, local administration and law and order if the performance of the states is far below the standard there is no provision now under the constitution to rectify the defects. Recourse is made to judicial intervention. Even if the courts give directions to the state machinery instance have come to notice where delayed responses and and ineffective responses are given. These are not the healthy signs of a good state.
On 25th the grand Christmas festival comes. The whole world rejoices remembering the birth of Lord Jesus - the son of God. Let us wish well to all our Christian brothren.
On 31st happens to be the New Years Eve. We wish a happy new year in advance to our readers.
Kaviyogi Dr P. Pandian IAS (r)
