Grantha Devo Bhava

Additional Chief Secretary of Tamilnadu Government Dr. R S Kannan expressed his pleasant surprise that at the Samskrita Bharati programme the entire procedure was in Samskritam. ‘Manushya’ a short story collection in Samskritam was released on April 17 at the function.

The lady narrated an interesting anecdote on the occasion; “yesterday the co-passenger in my flight was Shri D Raja, a communist leader. He was telling me that reverence for one’s mother is sure to instill probity in one’s life. Today I am here to release the book comprising short stories extolling love for mother. I deem it a honour”. The lady is the great grand daughter of V Krishnaswamy Iyer founder of Madras Samskrita College. The couple of books released last week happen to be the first publications of Uttar Tamilnadu Samskrita Bharati.

The heroes in search of sparrows

Hari of Kanchipuram, a swayamsevak was particularly worried by the disappearance of house sparrows. He arranged a nest and hung it in a room in his house where no electronic gadget is allowed so that these sparrows will be free to roam. Meanwhile RSS shakas in South Chennai district have started motivating locals in helping the little sparrows to reappear in the metro. The shakas has taken it upon themselves as the weekly service activity campaign. An initial 50 households are being cultivated in this regard according to Shri B Prakash, Prant Sampark Pramuk, Uttar Tamilnadu. The idea is to provide water and grains to attract the little twitters. House sparrow has almost disappeared from urban areas and to a large extent from the countryside also because of the extensive use of pesticides in the farm sector. With the replacing of wooden and thatched house roofs by concrete material, domestic sparrows have lost their safe habitats in residential areas.

  1. Shri Aboobacker is a blessed soul. So also is Justice Prabha Sridevan.
    We have a wooden 'house' for the sparrow, but have not been able to fix it. We should find someone to fix it for us.
